It's been a while since I did a review for bntnews, so I was very curious what they would send me this time! I was so excited when I saw the Kicho Aroha Glow CC Cushion* inside my bntbox! I was first introduced to Kicho through bntgirls, and since then I've loved every product I've tried from the brand so far. This CC cushion is a fairly new product from Kicho – before this, they'd only ever released skincare products, which is why I'm very excited to see if their makeup is just as good! Let's find out! :)

I recently downloaded two new photo apps—Analog Tokyo and Hipstamatic—so I've become very snap happy these days. (I wish I'd downloaded them earlier, before the rainy season started!) Here's how my June has looked like so far, through my phone.

review : W7 Cosmetics *

June 6, 2017 No comments

Hey everyone! I know I disappeared for a bit—rainy season started much earlier than usual in this part of the world, and so the sudden change in the weather led to me getting sick for about a week or so. This is why I haven't been able to post anything (other than updates on Instagram and Twitter). I've been feeling much better these days, so I'm trying my best to catch up on backlog!

W7 Cosmetics | chainyan.co
Today I'll be introducing a new makeup brand on the blog – W7 Cosmetics! W7 Cosmetics isn't actually a new brand per se. This UK drugstore brand has been around since 2002, but I only found out about them sometime last year, while searching for dupes of the Naked 3 (back when I still really wanted one). One of their eyeshadow palettes came up during the search, and so I've had W7 in my "brands to check out in the future" list ever since. A few days ago, I was sent three W7 products by the lovely Chariss of The Makeup House, and so I finally got the chance to try the brand ♥

A Day of Glam & Beauty at Derma 360°

May 31, 2017 No comments


Last May 25th, I was invited to attend an event at Derma 360° Professional Dermatological Center. The event was to celebrate Derma 360°'s 9 years of commitment to providing expert and personalized dermatologic care to its valued patients. As many readers of this blog may know, I've become a bit of a skincare nut over the past year, so I was very excited to have been invited!
