Fabulous finds { RMK liquid foundation }

My new makeup foundation has arrived the other day. I ran out of my Kanebo Media foundation, seems like the product is discontinued too.

I have heard about RMK for quite some time now. It is mostly recommended in plenty of Japanese magazines. Since, I have Asian skin, I prefer Asian products. They tend to match my skin tone more.

I ordered RMK liquid foundation #102. It has SPF 14. I've been using it for a couple of days now. I LIKE it very much. I love it more than my previous one. This foundation is light and tend to dry quickly. If you have dry skin, you may find the foundation a little too drying. I have combo skin, so far so good for me :) The texture is very very light and watery, which makes it easier to glide. You don't need to apply a lot.

The foundation doesn't cover much. It tends to brighten and make your skin tone more even. It doesn't cover acne or dark spots very much. I love that it doesn't make my skin look dull or oily. It stays the same hours after I applied the foundation on.

I always check the ingredients before deciding to buy it. I try to avoid products that will clog pores.

Ingredients: Water, Cyclomethicone, Alcohol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Silk Extract, Sorbitan Isostearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Dimethicone Copolyol, Egg Oil, Magnesium Sulfate, Diisostearyl Malate (+/-) Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide, Talc.

This is my first cosmetic review ever! I hope it helps :)

Sunday Brunch { Tofu Quiche }

I'm making Tofu Quiche for today's brunch. I was inspired by a Japanese drama I'm currently watching, Ohitori sama. It was my first time making quiche and it turned out quite nice. I'm surprised I couldn't even taste the tofu inside!

I found this lovely recipe. I adapted it a little by adding extra soft tofu into the recipe.

Bread 3 slices
Onion, grated 1/4 cups
Shredded Swiss cheese, 2 tablespoons
Milk, 1/4 cup
Egg, 1
Extra soft tofu, 1/2 cup drained of water
A pinch of salt and pepper
Mixed vegetables, 1/4 cup optional

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 12 muffin tins.
2. Trim or cut bread into circles. Place circles in bottom of muffin tins. Distribute the onion and shredded cheese evenly between the muffin tins.
3. In a medium bowl, combine milk, eggs, tofu and pepper. Divide between the muffin tins.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a quiche comes out clean.

Lovely + Inspiring { Separated at birth }

I received a very early Christmas card this morning from my fiance. I guess I'm not supposed to open it until Christmas, but I just couldn't wait that long. I'm so glad I opened his letter.

Isn't the card adorable? I love it so much that I have to share it with you. The card is from Sanrio, yes, it is the "Home of Hello Kitty". He is so good at picking the right cards for me :)

I don't have a santa hat at home, but I found something that is close enough to put me into the Christmas spirit.

Separated at birth:

I hope this can put you to the Christmas spirit as well!
