Limecrime Plushies

So something new form Limecrime. When I came across these I was like meh...but then seeing a few swatches of them and a new lighter formula I thought I would give them a shot. I ordered a few shades. I picked darker ones as I though these may not show up as to me they look like a lipstick tint or a lipstick stain . From my past experiences with those kinds of products I thought it be best to pick darker shades out of the collection.

Sugarpill Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks

YAY am so so so so so happy . Sugarpill just before christmas , took the shades form their pretty poison lipstick bullets and made them into liquid matte lipsticks! Much to my delight.

So of course with falling in love with the bright bold shades and Gothic darker ones. I had to get my hands on these shades as am just not a fan of bullet style lipstick. Like, think I have forgotten how to even use them haha! So let's have a look at these!

La Splash Honest Review

LASplash is a make up brand that I want to talk about. In the past I have bought a fair few products form them. Back then my reviews were about how long lasting the shades were and the amazing range of colours were. BUT...There was a few issues with them I did not like. One big one was the sticky thick formula - urgh it was awful and often gloppy then one shade came out that came with a awful scent to it. Which put me right off the liquid lipstick range. However I loved and still love the LASplash eyeliner ( and the Kat Von D one too.) I pretty much use it as my go to eyeliner but the only snag I had with it was the tip of the liners brush end the bristles would get trapped in the lid so I had to be careful with opening and closing as if they got trapped the bristles would go out of shape and make the eyeliner wonky I then would have to trim them off.

Are we over , You Tube ??

Thank you Youtube for the new requirements for being a youtube partner...its been fun. We got together in 2007 and its been a ride. But now you want to brake up with me and stop any channel or small youtuber earning any extra money cause we don't have the requirements for this relationship any more. I was a bit hurt at first but then after letting this brake up set in. Am so over it.

From Kawaii to Goth

So over the past year I would say my kawaii life has changed a fair amount.

My fashion has changed many times and like I said last year, when I attempted many styles and fell back in love with more alternative and gothic styles of kawaii. I have found since finding nugoth and black with the splash of pink can still be kawaii . I also love a bit of pastel goth too!
 I have become more confident and happier wearing my style. So I just am a bit of a Kawaii Grunge Goth now if it was to have such a label . Not that it needs a label but yuh..It matches in well with my make up style and I can get hold of the stuff in a comfortable size . I can style it up or dress down for daily wear. Am so content and confident and still feel super kawaii .And just because am in love with the Alternative darker styles don't mean I have move away form my kawaii life style cause everything and anything is still kawaii in my life.

My newest obsession...Ufufy's

Hey Kawaii cuties & Happy new year its 2018!
Wow I have gotten so lazy with posting but Christmas is a crazy time of year not that anyone is interested in my excuses for not posting in months lol. ( like anyone even reads my blog these days.)

So my newest obsession is this new range or collection that started in Japan.
Disney Ufufy's are egg shaped cute often pastel Disney characters that have come to the UK- yay!
They are scented and the most Kawaii cuties I have seen in ages since the tsum tsum craze. I am not sure if these will take off as big as the Tsum tsums but am addicted to these.

The 1st set that came to the UK was Mickey and friends , I think I got them all but 2 all of them were scented with apple blossom. There was also a HUGE size Donald duck and Winnie the pooh , of course I had to get the large Donald. He is far to cute! Then a while later came the Beauty and the Beast set came along which were rose scented, a rather strong rose scent might I add.

Out of the whole set I only wanted Belle but in the end got both Belle and Beast as he is stupidly grumpy looking so much so he is cute haha. I was not keen on the others in this set as I felt the egg shape didn't really do it for me. Just before christmas a new set came to the Disney store and I HAD to get them as it was Snow White and as a Snow white fan..I picked 3 from that set .

Snow, Dopey and Grumpy were quickly added to my new growing collection.

I love how adorable they all are the dwarfs really suit this new kawaii look . These ones did not come with a new scent but the apple blossom like the other ones. I guess the BATB ones are rose for some reason. I am always looking out for leaks on which new Ufufys are due out but I do love some of the cute ones that are only in Japan at this time. Most are the same characters over and over for celebrations or Holidays . I wonder if we will be getting any more or if we will get all the princesses as ufufy's in the future?

Which Character would you like to see next come out?

Stay Kawaii xox

New Fire Element palette form NYX

Oh my goodness, Can you tell I JUST had to get my hands on this?!
All those warm tones a mix of shimmery ones about 5 and the rest in pigmented bright matte shades.
This is the FIRE Element palette from NYX costing £25. A bit pricey for NYX but I feel these new element shadows are worth the price point.

'Fall Make up' Barry M review

Pretty Zombie Cosmetics Review

So I came across Pretty Zombie cosmetics before, but since it is a US indie brand and then you have (wimpers..) Shipping I never got round to ordering anything from them. Any way am know got my hand on some, well 3 in face shades . Thanks to Cute Cosmetics a UK make up store who stock a range of animal cruelty free and vegan brands.

I got one shade to start with has I heard many reviews and many were disappointed on the products.
As I type they are re branding the packaging but am not sure if this means there will be a change of formula. Its the formula that some have had issues with.  Any way back to my thoughts.

Halloween in Kawaii fashion

YAY, for it is October!
Time to grab those fall shades , warm cozy pieces to throw on and battle the Autumn wind, rain, and goodness what else the British weather will throw at us..
To me Autumn seems to look lovely everywhere, being out in it on the other hand, I rather be inside warm. With Autumn comes Halloween! Or if you wish to be fancy Samhain (shout out to my fellow pagans!) .

YouTubers and Make Up Inspiration

Hey there cuties!
Today am sharing a few of my all time favoured you tube channels/ accounts. These are you-tubers I really like personally and follow. I thought some of you might be interested in the accounts and maybe you all have a suggestion of channels I need to check out too.

My all time loved you tuber is the channel 'itslikelymakeup'.
Jordie, I adore her so much she is such a button.I just love everything about her , I feel we could totally be gal pals haha! I guess I can relate to her a lot with also being a mom too and a cat mom, oh her cats are just so sweet they are Sphinx breed cats - all the love for them ! I love her make up and love her videos and follow her on most accounts.She also was in the nyx cosmetics face awards and was in the last of the runner ups. As I like nyx make up I find I get a lot of inspiration form her videos with the make up. She has been a bit quite with moving and all but I really adore her channel and content, she can do really creative make up to every day make up that I love so she is my top make up you tuber! So please check her out! 

Secondly I like Sophie Li Ying,  her make up is very goth/ nu goth/ alternative and grunge. She uses a lot of make up brands I use myself. Such as Limecrime, Jeffree star and some Kat Von D. Oh and she also did a whole range of looks with Jeffree Stars Eye shadows ,So this was very useful for me . Also I like how her videos never go on and on and on with chat as some times that is to much with me. Simple straight to the point videos and great make up. Sometimes she will do other kinds of videos but make up ones are more her thing.

The next make up channel I follow is AtLeeeey
I enjoy her videos and make up get ready with mes. I used to follow her more as she used to use a lot of lime crime products but then stopped. I don't watch her as much as I used to but she is worth checking out.

 I do follow many other make up channels such as Dupe That, Jeffree Star , Laura Lee and Manny MUA but the above are the channels I really like the best for different reasons but I think each one can bring something to the table for viewers.

Who do you like to watch on youtube?!

Trying Nu Goth Fashion Look Book

Hey there - I know its been a while since I did a post!But yay am giving you a new one and its going to be about the style and fashion form Japan ( J- Fashion! ) Nu Goth, this style ...WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE!? 
Quote form the wonders of Google ~ Nu Goth is a fashion style that takes some of the tropes of casual Goth fashion and mixes it up with Hipster fashion staples like high-waisted shorts, crop tops, and oversized sunglasses. These Nu Goths do not listen to Goth music, they simply wear the clothing that they like.10 Dec 2011
Nu goth is not exactly about goth, that much we know. It's about black, symbols, denim shorts, ombre hair, pastels, purple, platform shoes, leggings, backpacks, studs, black lipstick, mermaid hair and occult symbols. -2014 rebel circus

Some Kawaii Adventures and updates

Last month I got hit by some cold bug it lasted around 2-3weeks, It was like the cold was not wanted to leave me, between that root canal , skin reactions to a cream or a soap thing and then pulling something in my bad has left me a bit of a glitter hot mess. However trying to get back to doing kawaii things or pottering about once I summoned my energy I took a day out to the Kyoto Friendship Gardens in Edinburgh. As the Sakuras are in blossom and did not want to miss out on the chance to enjoy it fully ( I always end up missing them!)

Really a Princess

Yuno as I write this I sure do not feel like a princess. 
Am in sweat pants and a jumper okay the jumper is baby pink and cute as possible while I nurse myself with some dreaded Con Flu . Which is why I have some time to blog about this. 

My newest adventures of late have been becoming a Princess, Well a cosplay/ costume princess. Years ago I never dreamed of putting of puffy full sized over the top dresses. But it did happen thanks to meeting my cosplay sister last year. And then we had this crazy idea of doing more Princesses together.
