Kawaii / Japanese Inspired Look

Hi again! I did this look a few days ago- it's really simple but definitely wearable. I paired it with some bling'd out nails. :) I was actually inspired to do this look after seeing an old post from Jangsara. I'm always so inspired by her work!!

I'll upload the product list later!

Fruity Rainbow Manicure Nails

Hi :) I did these nails a few days ago!

Urban Decay's Chronic & Jones Eyeshadows: Review, Swatches

Please Read: I am not paid by any cosmetic companies to review any of these products. Everything I review is bought by me, and I will always give a %100 honest review.
  • Packaging:  These eyeshadows come in the traditional UD pot packaging. I adore the packaging because it's so unique compared to other companies' packaging, and it's still durable.
  • Product: These are both nicely pigmented colours from UD. The formulas are VERY smooth/velvety. They're also very long lasting even without a primer.  
    • Chronic: is a matte grass green shade. In the pan, you can see bits of shimmer, but when you apply it, no glitter shows up. It comes in the bronze version of UD's packaging.
    • Jones: is a shimmery, creamy orange shade. This colour is perfect for summer, it works well with more warm shades.
  • Dupes: Jones is very similar to UD's Free Love. Chronic is very similar to Inglot's #385, although #385 is slightly darker. 
  • Final Thoughts: These are VERY impressive! They were actually my first UD eyeshadow purchases, and I truly am happy with these purchases. I will definitely be buying them again!
Chronic, Jones

MAC Cosmetic's Lipglass

Please Read: I am not paid by any cosmetic companies to review any of these products. Everything I review is bought by me, and I will always give a %100 honest review.
  • Packaging: The lipglasses come in cute lipgloss tubes with black caps. These are a little longer than the height of a MAC lipstick, but are also skinnier. I think the size of these tubes make it really easy to store.
  • Product: The lipglass has awesome pigmentation, thats for sure. The formula feels thick, and very glossy. It gives a high shine impact which I like. It feels very moisturizing to lips. The only thing I find that I didn't like too much was the stickyness- although it's hard to find a gloss that isn't sticky.
    • Hush, Hush Rose: is a shimmery, hot pink shade.
  • Final Thoughts: These lipglasses are awesome! This is the first one I've ever owned so I'm excited to use this in a look. I love the shine and highly pigmented formula, so I definitely will be buying more of these.

Joe Fresh Nail Polish in Bloom Review

Please Read:
 I am not paid by any cosmetic companies to review any of these products. Everything I review is bought by me, and I will always give a %100 honest review.
  • Packaging: The nail polish comes in a cute cylinder bottle with a white cap. I personally love these bottles, I think they're really cute. The applicator is a little shorter/smaller than the average nail polish applicator. These are easy to store and durable.
  • Product: The nail polish has a really good consistency. One coat of this polish actually offers good coverage, you generally need one coat. The only thing about this polish is that it chips easily, which is kind of annoying. I would recommend maybe one or two coats then add a top coat.
    • Bloom: is a beautiful hot pink shade.
  • Final Thoughts: These nail polishes have good coverage, but chip easily- especially without a top coat. I still would buy more of these polishes though, the company offers a great variety of colours.
  • Availability: $2.99 @ Loblaws

MAC Lustering Lipstick Review, Pictures, Swatches

Here's a lipstick that I've owned for a long time now, and I still love it.
  • Packaging:  These lipsticks come in the small black bullet-looking tubes. These are easy to store, durable, and look cute. There is no special packaging for this lipstick. 
  • Product:  This lipstick has the same vanilla scent that all MAC lipsticks have. These last around 5-6 hours  on my lips.
    • Lustering: is sheer, hot pink shade with a lustre finish and blue undertones.
  • Final Thoughts: This shade of lipstick is a really fun colour to have in your MAC lipstick collection. I would definitely buy this shade again!
  • Availability: $17.50, MAC Cosmetics

Alice Series: Dollhouse

Hi everyone! Heres another look from my new series! If you didn't know, I'm doing looks based on my new Alice: Madness Returns game. Every time Alice travels to a new "realm" in the game, her dress changes based on the scenery. This look was based on the Dollhouse level. I went for a super bright, smokey, pink and purple look. Success.
