I know I said I was "back from the dead" (In July), and... clearly I was still dead. But hi!
I've been on this Pocky craze lately. I'm a Pocky fiend in general, but I just went insane this summer and found myself regularly at H-mart for my Pocky fix. I am/was a monster.
I probably gained a bit of weight from all that... sob...
The total bill was like... $21? The H-mart lady was all "o____o" when she rang me up, lol.
Yes, I am a girl who drops $21 on Pocky alone.
I am definitely a psycho.
Anyways - one of the flavours I bought was this "Rum and Raisin" one.
LIFE LESSON #1 ON JUNNIKU BLOG:
- Never, ever, ever buy "Rum and Raisin" Pocky. Never. It is made for the sole purpose to make you barf your brains out.
I showed my friends before I tried it, and I was all happy and excited. They were like "....why would you...omg."
My friends, how wise y'all are!!
I ate half a stick, and was all like "nope. nope." and shoved it to the back of my desk drawer, beside my tablet and my pencils (and a few random false eyelashes... because I'm messy and crazy like that.)
It is death.
On a stick.
So... I completely missed the summer blogging season. LOL.
I'm back with a "Fall favourites" post - I've never done one before, mostly because... I don't know.But behold -- I have gathered a few favourites that are proven to be very worthy of a mention!!!
I name this "fall favourites", because these are the products I have been using most, and I know I'll use it religiously for fall season.
1. Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Artist Liner (Shade: M-10)
2. Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette
3. Dior Lip Glow
4. Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nails (#5, "Princess Mary")
5. D.U.P False Eyelashes Brown Mix Secret Line (No. 923)
1. Make Up For Ever
- Artist Liner (Shade: M-10)
"The New MUFE Artist Liner is a twist-up, gliding eye pencil that delivers intense colour payoff to let you unleash your inner artist!"
This is one of my all time favourite liners to use lately - the colour itself is pretty damn pigmented and is an intense black colour. It's very versatile - you can use it for a simple, everyday line... or you can do a smokey eye effect as well. :)
IT'S SO SMOOTH. Not even joking - it glides on my skin like butter.
It's butter, but kinda also like iron. When it sets, it lasts a really, really, really long time. You'll need a good remover to remove this.
Though I currently have the shade "M-10", I'll be picking this up in a brown colour as well. (Either shade M-50 or M-60... or... both...) I use brown more often anyways, but thought that the black colour would be cool to use during the fall-winter season. It costs $23CAN at Sephora.
It comes in 15 different colours and 5 different finishes... and tbh... I'm probably gonna pick up more than just a brown. Maybe a green colour? Blue? Purple? Hehe.
2. Urban Decay
- Naked Flushed palette
Another one of my favourites - this is Urban Decay's Naked Flushed palette. It is very, very pretty. I think 3 colours go pretty decently with my skin. I use the bronzer and blush the most. I hardly find myself reaching for the highlighter part, but that's only because I don't really wear highlighter anyways.
If you've seen my circle lens reviews, I'm pretty much always wearing this in my pictures.
The packaging is good - very travel friendly, but still has a generous amount of product and a decently sized mirror.
I'll buy it again and again. (There are now a few more versions of the flushed palette now: "Native", "Streak" and "Strip")
It's $35 CAN at Sephora.
- Lip Glow (Colour reviver balm)
I got this as a gift. Just saying. I don't often drop a hefty $35 for a lip balm.
I'm very glad I have it, though. To be honest... I don't know why, but it's one of my favourite lip products. It just basically "enhances my natural lip colour" while moisturizing and protecting my lips as well.
It's definitely expensive (basically overpriced...). I don't think the "special unique shade" really "lasts all day". It lasts for a bit, but I do like the sheeny colour it gives my lips. After a short while, its gone.
...Until I swipe it on my lips again, that is.
Don't know why I like it so much, but I do.
One of life's "wtf????" stuff, I guess.
4. Etude House
- Juicy Cocktail #5, "Princess Mary"
It's just so pretty. The colour is so rich and... yaaaaa. I love it for the fall season. It's so sparkly and UGH. I LOVE.
The only thing that holds me back from wearing this 24/7 is the glitter. I have both a passion and a fear of glitter/sparkle polishes because they take forever to remove.
I ordered the Innisfree peel-off base coat, though. So my nail life should be amaaaaaazing quite soon.
I love this nail set.
WHY SO PRETTY?
You use the 3 colours to make a pretty gradient nail - the bottles are labelled 1, 2 and 3 (in order of what you should use first, and directions come in the packaging.) The chunky sparkles go at the tip of the nail~
It's like having pieces of gold and fairy dust on your fingers. You feel me?
Everyone likes having gold-and-fairy-dusted fingers.
- False eyelashes (No. 923)
A month ago, I was walking down the street with a friend. It was like 10pm or something. I stopped by this random asian cosmetics store. I had the sudden urge to buy falsies, you see.
After 5 minutes of looking around, my friend goes all, "yo these are cute". And she holds up these.
As with most Japanese lashes, they are pricey - $22 for 2 pairs.
But they are amazing.
I bought them (odd, because I never listen to said friend's advice on beauty stuff) and I am SO SO SO HAPPY I DID.
Thank you, friend!
2 weeks later, I went online and bought 8 more pairs. I'm not even joking. (They're a bit cheaper online, so... I went crazy.)
They're so natural and fluttery and feathery. I LOVE. They're really good quality as well! I can very easily get multiple uses out of a pair.
I used to love Dolly wink eyelashes because I thought they were the best. Now, I don't even look at my DWs. My new eyelash bae is D.U.P, yo~~~~~~~~~

So - that was a pretty long post.
What are your fall favourites?
- Do you use any of these products? Heard of them before?
Tell me????????? Tell me??????
Random side note: As I'm typing this, I'm also looking at this asian food grocery site.
Yes, I am trying to buy Pocky online. I really do have issues...
