Product Review form Wishtrend*


Hey there my Kawaii beauty's! I know how much you love Beauty items and looking after your selves so today I have a product review from Wish trend you can find the link here. This company sells many beauty products from Asia. The item I will be reviewing today is Skinmiso.
Skinmiso is a night cream. I don't think , I have ever used night cream before! So this was a 1st for me. 
As the products are Asian its best to go to the website to check it out and find out how to use it!
But Skinmiso is a 7 in 1 night cream for tighten the pores made from all natural ingredients. This product is recommended for those of us who have dull/ weak/ dry/ tired skin. 


''Designed only with natural ingredients to replenish the skin with pure
antioxidants and hydration from nature, the Pore Zero Night Cream 
is made to hydrate, calm, whiten, control, prevent, tighten, and 
restore—all in one product. With effective anti-aging and wrinkle care 
ingredients for the optimal control and balance your skin needs, the 
Pore Zero Night Cream is a must-have for everyone !''

The easy way to use this product is to apply a even layer to the face before bed and then get some shut eye to wake up to a wonderful fresh face of beauty. 

I gave mine a shot the other night, I really wanted to try this out, when I opened this product up it comes in a good size tub full of cream to the top,It has a minty / lavender smell .I think more minty. It is thick and applys well its soft and it absorbs slowly into the skin, I liked the feeling on my skin . Not sticky either ,come the time of morning all the product is absorbed into the skin and it tighten up some pores I had . I did also do a scrub before applying this with my normal face scrub as it really needed to remove some dead skin- Eww!- So I am no sure if this helped or made it work better or worse with doing so. But I over all impressions is I like this product.

My rating for this product outta 5 stars is 5. I like the feel of the product, the smell and how it preforms but being Tartan Kawaii its not the most cutest looking product but its classic and simple looking.

Wish Trend also offer free shipping and have a range of interesting products. A place to check out for sure!

Skin Care Masks.

Hey every one. How are you all doing? I've been pretty much under the weather so much so I had to visit my GP. ( Doctor.) Yeah  not much fun but hey am on the mend! Thank goodness. So here we are in JUNE! I felt like May was such a long month and it dragged!
Any way to start of the month of June and with keeping in the healthy and TLC of ones self I found something really cool online. I was wanting to cheer myself up and came across a website that sell masks- face masks. Now I LOVE those paper masks that are dripped in magical lotions and when I found this I had to treat myself to them.
This is by a company on Facebook called MaskGenie who do a parcel of masks each week like a bundle of mixed kinds and send it out to you.

So it came at the total of around £11 with shipping and took about 2 weeks to get to the UK from China,ame by China post and I was delighted to get my parcel the other day. I got a mix of skin treatments to try and even the Snail mask! (eww.)
I got 10 masks in total and was very happy with my purchase and it is more of your Asian brands of Face / Skin care. Inside my parcel my masks were all tied up in a red net like bag. The other thing is I have never tried any of these masks which is nice cause I love trying new beauty items.  Most of them are the paper sheet style and the others are a wash off mask and a few are the jelly like collagen styles. 

The website was simple to use and easy to work. I really am looking forward to using my new masks - just what the beauty doctor ordered. I have already tried two since getting my order which were amazing. Mind you its not the most attractive thing to have on your face but after my skin felt so much better!

Even though May dragged out a fair bit for me I was showered with a couple of gifts for my anniversary by Mr and to my delight I got a very cute looking Hello Kitty bead style watch and a pink heart dress ring  which matches it well and is utterly adorable. I felt like a princess wearing my ring and watch haha.





Am looking forward to what June brings me and with any luck the UK shall get some summer like weather (Please!) If you want to keep up regularly with me don't forget to check out my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

How to be Kawaii -Skin Care

Hey cuties!
Oh am so sorry I have been so half bothered about my blog, I suppose I really have had no motivation of late to blog about anything, everything has gone so quite! But I have not forgotten about my blog!
I am actually going to give it a bit of love and attention by giving it a make over! but it will take time . Talking of Make overs my blog post today is going to be all about my Skin Care routine.
Having Good healthy clear skin is a start on becoming and staying super Kawaii!

I am often asked, ''What's your secret?'' '' How is your skin so clear and perfect?'' ''Do you suck the youth of children to look so young?!''. Well yes I do suck the youth of children to keep my eternal young looking skin- that there, is my secret...OF course not!! *stares blankly* So I thought, I would share what I do. It really is not any secret at all. And if it helps you in any way or might give you some ideas then its worth a shot then.

The Brands that I use are Simple its a nice easy to use range of products , The Moisture, Toners and make up removers .These are products I have used for years and like them as they are gentle and light on my kind of skin..I have no idea what sort of skin I have but I will take a guess and say its c
The other products I use are the Good things Range from Boots which are the Manuka and Honey products of a Mask and Face Scrub. These I use either once a week, or every second week, I try to keep it to once a week to keep on top of giving my face a good clean but sometimes that is not the case. The Mask and the scrub smell so nice to me it is like giving myself a treat or some me time. As having a 3 year old little one clinging to you 24/7 . Some times you just want a bit of time to your self!

I admit I do not aways remember to use my Moisture and Toners, I try my best to mind to use my products before make up and such but am just being honest I do not always have the time. But one thing I do do, which i think plays a big part of keeping my skin nice and healthy is. I take off all my make up before bed, There was a time * hangs head in shame* where I would roll in from the dancing ( back in the day.) and be like out for the count or not be bothered to remove the make up and wake up the next day with make up smeared all over my face and pillow.. Not a Pretty sight haha!
Now I have a go to bed routine which is using my Simple products of Make up wipe removers. I switch from a cleanser one to a ex-foliate one the both do the same job. Once I get all my make up off I pay close attention to the eye area and be gentle around that and my lips.

Now if any of you know me well..I LOVE bright coloured and high pigmented lips, From Hot Pink to Bright Red! I love to have bright colours but those sorta colours can be powerful and some times dry your lips out or those ones which have high staying power ...yuno the ones, that are like water proof smudge proof and bullet proof, yup those's ones! They can really take it out on your lips so I like to use a lip scrub I got an Asian brand one- the name I have  forgotten- I use that every week when I do my face skin scrub and Mask.
But the other thing I do every night is layer on some chap stick or lip balm for my lips to get hydrated while I sleep.

Talking of sleep! Sleep is also a great thing for your skin. When you sleep your skin repairs its self, and a other top tip is drinking LOTS of Water! Yea when I have a cheeky day of junk food ...What? It's okay.. some times you have to eat all the things and junk and fizzy drinks but...I take the next day to snap out of it and avoid all junk food and flush it out my system by drinking more water, its good for your system and your body!
The other thing I like to do when I can is I take every so often a NO- Make-up day(s)! Yup that means NOTHING AT ALL! I go about my day bare faced and face all so natural, Its a good idea to let your skin breathe every once and a while , if you are not keen on the idea why not pick it as a day where you are not up for doing anything  or on holiday. I am not a person who can not leave the house with out make up but I do like to keep my best. But its something I do suggest you try.

Remember every one has different skin so some of the products I use might not be best suited for you - so best talk to those beauty girls at the department stores and am sure they can help you with products and skin care too!

So every one that's the big old secrets to my eternal youth *cough* I mean the secrets to my Skin Care, its just basic stuff and like every one else some times am on top of my game other times am not, but that's okay. I will just pick up the pieces tomorrow

Fluffy nail art...Kawaii

Hey there you cutie's.
I hope you all had a great weekend, I had such a busy one that am so tired, I need to catch up on some 'ZZzz'z' but I sure did have some fun. Today I wanted to find this cool and fun
 nail art effect, there is a lot on the market and in high strret brands in the shops but I saw this and was like ''Kyaa its so Kawaii!''
I used my BarryM nail polish for my night out at the weekend so I still had it on when I got this magical little tub of Fur-effect nails by MUA which was about £3-5 ( cant mind of the top of my head the price- as I got 2, and 2 new polish's.)


It comes in a little tub .


You can add it to your nails,as it says on the back with the shaker seen here in the above photo.


Or you can take the shaker part off and paint your nails and ''sprinkle'' the fluffy fur on it.


I found that I had to really pack it on my freshly painted wet nails to fully cover the nail and by placing a sheet of paper under my hands. I could catch the fur that escaped as it was a bit messy with fur every where!!

I have BarryM Dragon Fruit shade on underneath.



As you can see at first they are super furry but they lost their puff as I didnt push the fur into the wet polish to well, But I since washed my hands many a time, run a bath, dishes and lots of cleaning and the fur is still on! Not only that but its still super soft to touch too.

So am really impressed, I got this hot pink fur in colour and a cotton candy one too!
I cant wait to try that one out too!
Hope you like my fur-tastic find for new nail art fun!
Till next time!

Magical Nails, BarryM review.

Hello Cuties! Hope you are all well and staying super cute ,I am sure you all are!
So I have a review on some new polishes for you all these are from BarryM, My most loved brand for nail polish ever hehe.
Just of late they have brought out these sparkly pretties out and there is a few to pick from as well. I bought 3 of them and really want to get the other one.


You can get these in Duchess ,Princess , Lady , Countess and Majesty. I got the following Duchess the golden shade, Princess in the pink shade and Lady or pear white is called, in the white shade. They were also on a 3 for 2 offer when I went in Boots.
I love how magical anime princess like these shades are...to cute!


These are from the textured range, so when they dry the polish has some texture on the nails.
These shades are so cute! They come in the well recognised polish bottles that BarryM do.


Here on the ring finger is the Princess colour against the Duchess,The Princess is pink in colour and very girly I think its name is very fitting!


Here is the Duchess with the ring finger with Lady,I love the white one as it looks very Christmas like and reminds me of frosty snow outside its very pretty on and it was this shade  that I really wanted to buy. The Duchess is a mature shade of matt colours of dull pink, I cant quite pick out its shade it looks golden or nude brown with a hint of pink!?  Its a nice shade that I could wear when ever I want to get  a hint of sparkle. Cant keep a girl from some Sparkle right ?!
The Glitter also is a range of big and small particles. They need about 2 coats to get a nice shade and coverage and dry really fast.I think the lady and princess ones are my favourites. The only down side  about these is it takes a while to remove all the glitter and sparkles off... 
Please do check out Barry M more so on the facebook page as they have a game you can play where you can win prizes and discounts!

I hope you all enjoyed my magical nail review on these pretty nail polishes! 
Till next time..

Lock Shop Wig Review

Hey every one here is a new review post for you all on not one but 2 Lock shop wigs I have ordered in the past month or so!
I ordered a long wig and a short wig which are called Gemmi (short wig.) and Mermaid (long wig.)


The Mermaid wig is the Blossom one, its a soft brown colour that fades into the range of pinks that hide under and are seen near the ends of hair sections with a Ombre effect.
I really liked this wig when it came out and after a few months of saving I went ahead to purchase this one, I did sway on buying this one as I am not overly keen on brown shades.Any how I went ahead and bought it, I think this might be one of my favourite wigs as I loved the brown colour haha! As normal its easy to use the website and find updates on the Lock shop pages on facebook. I have had no problems when ordering from the web site even when I was moving house.


My Wig was packed well and secure. I have noticed that you do not always get a complementary Wig Cap as they often run out of these really quickly! So you may wish to order a few off ebay to have handy. I also find they are easy things to go missing. 
Any way here are some photos - I've not altered the wig in any way I may trim the bangs/Fringe of the Blossom wig.




I adore this wig - It can make any outfit more colourful, I feel its a youthful fun wig but its not over the top in anyway.I would love it to have a bit more body and ''Waves'' in the style since they have revamped the mermaid style but I do not regret getting this great wig.!

The other wig the Gemini Wig a much shorter and different style to any wig in the Lockshop so far, This is a more interesting wig, With 2 shades one darker than the other and has a ''puffy top''  and a visible crown on the scalp .I got this before my camera was fixed so there is no parcel photos but it was packed just the same way the other one was.


This is a more Visual Kei inspired wig, I simply bought it because there is a lack of short wigs from the Lock shop and the darker shade would work well with my natural tones. I also got a sense of Rock n Roll from looking at it. 

This wig will look very flat and odd if you are not used to this style. I didnt like it looking so flat maybe because I have a small head?! So I found with a bit of creative back combing ( thanks to my hairdressing days.) made the wig look a lot more fuller and bed head style.
I love the contrast of the wig colours and the fact it is a shorter wig.





I feel that with this wig it maybe a harder wig to dress with and work with a cord as such, its very emo/punk and extremely Visual Kei. So Perfect for all of you guys how love that look, To me I think this is a wig for my more rock chic look days. This wig also differs from the other wigs as the feel of this wig is much more matt compared to the other wigs, which made it easy to back comb this wig into a style.
I really am in hope for more shorter wigs in many styles from the Lockshop, I think the Visual Kei/ Gemini would look great in a variety of shades also.
Am just gona have to keep my fingers crossed!

Hope you like my Review!
