Kawaii Make up~ Jeffree star cosmetics vs Limecrime

Hey every one todays post is a Kawaii Make up post on both Lime crime and the new Jeffree Star Comestics. I really wanted to test out the JSC ones when I spotted them on Instagram ( Follow me!) and saw the shades and product looking a lot like Lime crime.
I really wanted to get both Prom night - the pink shade and the Redrum  Velour liquid  lipsticks to match up and compare with Lime crime Red Velvet and Pink Velvet but the Redrum came in fast and out fast too! They also have a shade like lime crimes utopia , I'm Royalty but am happy with utopia and really do not wear purple on the lips much.
It was also finding Grave Yard Girl on youtube doing her videos on these products that confirmed I wanted to get them too. ( Thanks Bunny!)
Soo... lets check em outs!


Well just by looking at the products you can see that they differ in packaging, Lime crime being thinner and longer and JSC looking shorter and chunky.


The brushes look pretty much the same and apply the same way too. How ever the Jeffree star one seems to have a shorter end to hold on to which was a bit of a pain to use but hey ho-.
 I quite like the design of the packaging box - being pink and all with cute stars with little J's in them.



Here are some picture to see the difference in the products.
 I find the both dry the same and apply the same. I find that JSC is more lighter to wear on the lips and Limecrime is more heavy in feeling. both are not that sticky either. Most most of all is the diffrence in colour, Well there is not really much of a difference to me, the main one is the fact Prom night is more electric pink and slightly brighter. It might be me but I found the pink velvet is slightly darker.


Here on this photo is Lime crime on the top lip and JCS on the bottom, I do not think you could tell them apart unless some one pointed them out to you.

Overall- I love both products. I like the fact JSC is slightly cheaper than Limecrimes Velvet, But I highly doubt that JSC's ones will make me change my mind from buying the other Velvets, I look forward to Lime crimes Riot shade coming out at the end of the month and really would like it!
I have to say they are very much the same and I love them both equally!

Kawaii London- Item review.

Hey guys , a good while back I put a order into a Esty store called Kawaii London, that has some very interesting and quirky items. I found them via facebook which in turn lead me to the online shop.
Facebook linkShop and Esty links for ya.

What really attracted me there was the bright and bold colours, I saw a jumper that looked super cute and cosy and just of late , I went through all my jumper and am disgusted in my Kawaii self. HOW on EARTH did I neglect jumpers! About 80% of them are old, shabby, un loved ,dull and so un-kawaii ...some one call the Kawaii police its that bad!

I just can't...Any way I was like RIGHT, winter time means jumpers so I have taken it in my hands to find and update my jumpers/sweaters to the Kawaii level that they should be at.
Because my order was places through Esty it was super easy to order, put it in the basket and use pay pal . Done. So this is a small independent designer who doses these which is why I was happy to pay about £20 for the jumper I wanted.

My order was a bit delayed but this was in no fault of the seller as it was due to a bank holiday in England. These things happen. So my order came in the post, well presented and packed neatly.


Oh yea I also got a Barbie inspired  bracelet, it was so quirky and cute but after a week - I caught it on the hoover , Well the part where you wrap the cord up after you been doing the hoovering and then go to tidy it away...yea I do house work guy's , the kawaii life do have it pit falls lol! Well ,that bit yeah? My bracelet snagged on it...beads everywhere. Gutted.
So it was a short relationship with the bracelet. But I really loved it and was wearing it every day. Am such a shatter brain at times. I should have taken it off to do the chores . Any I do have it in some of the photos I took.




As you can see the Bracelet was so cute, but the jumper is really awesome too. The jumper has diamonds all over it some are glitter others are yellow -ish shade and a sky blue shade and the all very sharp and clean cut on the HOT pink over all jumper colour.
I picked a M size which is to be a UK 12, I picked it because I love my baggy jumpers to cuddle under and cosy up with and liked the idea of a over size, I think if I did pick the S size it too would be nice a roomy when worn. Inside the jumper is a soft and fleece fuffly feeling. Making it nice a cosy!



If you love diamonds and hot pink and love a bold piece of clothing then this is the shop for you.
I have already spied a other outfit I would like to purchase from Kawaii London. I think I will wait till the end or next month to pick something . Mind you it might not get much ware out of it as its more like a summery item! LOL


Laters Kawaii Cuties!
