random video off youtube of what they look like in person
Milkita melon milk soft candy - It's pretty good and close to the taste of Melon ice cream bars, my fav. Thumbs up to capturing that artificial melon taste.
Now it's time to put all the candies away before I eat them all. Oh boy...
So there was a lot of interest in the KitKats I posted last time, hehe. If you've yet to stuff your face with them, check out these sites:
http://www.asianfoodgrocer.com Asian Food Grocer - They have a few selections of Kit Kats at really good prices plus the prices on the candy and other items are the same as my local asian market. The shipping is a flat rate $5 which is an amazing price especially if you buy drinks! They ship from San Francisco so the shipping should be fast too. I just ordered here... [use code retailmenot10 to save 10% off $20 or more]
http://www.jbox.com Jbox - They have at most 3 flavors of Kit Kat at a time. The shipping is expensive since it's coming from Japan. It starts at $3 and keeps going up. I ordered here earlier this week. mwahaha- they're the only ones with sakura green tea flavor. I can't keep bugging Stacey. :P
http://www.napajapan.com Nappa Japan - They have tons of flavors but slightly more expensive. Since it's based in Japan the shipping is also adds up really quick. It starts at $3 though.

I'm thinking about doing a candy/snack giveaway for this blog!!
And for beauty related news: I think I'm gonna pass on the Urban Decay sale since I bought a lot of candy. I really only wanted the summer palette but I can live without it since I still have the book of shadows to play with. :) Plus I'm planning on buying a high-end foundation during the Sephora sale next week. I'm sick of trying the drugstore foundations. You know if you try 3 or 4 of the drugstores it will equal the cost of one high-end foundation and you could screw up your skin with pimples like I did.
I tried a sample of MUFE mat velvet+ in #40 but it made my face look so red in the sun. Anything lighter than #40 is just too pinky so it's a no-go on that. I'm also between shades in MUFE HD even with their huge selection. I swatched Shiseido today really quick (in passing) at the asian market and it seemed really nice so it's on my radar now. I think I'm shade O-20 but I'm not sure so I need to hop by Macy's this weekend.
I got a tweet about a Smashbox Warehouse sale so that sounds really intriguing. It started today and it's going on tomorrow too. If I had known about it earlier I would've tried to go today and get the good stuff before it's gone. Hope it's not mostly old crap and seasonal stuff. There are only a couple things I really want so I will try to stick to that list and be good! I will also try to remember to charge my camera and take pics if I can!
Hope everyone has a good weekend!
