Lime Crime-Kawaii make up review

Ah finally, getting round to a new review blog post yay!

So this posts review is about my latest purchase of products by Lime Crime. A product that is made in the USA and known for its bright colourful shades and tones. I have come across Lime Crime in the past and always liked the look of the brightly  products but never really got around to purchasing them -manly because I didn't know if I could in the UK or not. However in the end I did realise I could get the products on ebay and a few UK online make up shops or just ordering from Lime Crime in the USA its self. So far I have tried all these methods and not had any issues with shipping or such. So I know if I can not get it on one of these ways I can with a other.- great stuff.
So what did I get?!
The 1st product I ordered was one of the Velvetines, I picked the pink one as the red one was out of stock everywhere or I had to play way over the odds for one! But I like pink and wanted to try it- I heard a lot about this product about how amazing it is and how bright and colourful the shades are.
I also heard and read many reviews on how long lasting the product were when on the lips which really took my interest. Also the Velvetines are a Gloss product that dry into a matt once on.
I was super over the moon when I item came and I fell in love with the product packaging and the product itself. I knew from that point I had to get myself some more of the Velvetines. I now have the following , Pink Velvet, Utopia and Red Velvet. And I love them all.

Why do I like these? I love the long lasting colour, I barely have to touch up my lip make up as its like the stuff is bullet proof , Kiss proof and compared to other bright colours there was barely a trace of any left lip mark on my mugs of tea or on toast! I love the colours and the fact its a matt finish. I also noted they had a nice scent to them as well.I did find it was hard to get them perfectly lined with the brush that they come with so I use a lip brush to outline my lips when I use these. I am not personally keen on shiny gloss looks on my lips so these are perfect for me!Moving on to the other products I ordered 3 Unicorn lipsticks in the end, I really wanted to try them to see how they matched up to the Velventines.





 The colours I ordered were, Airborne unicorn which is a purple - Lavender shade. Centrifuschia  which is a fushica like pink shade. The other one being Pink Planet which is more of a baby pink pastel shade.Pinks and reds are more my sort of colours but I found the ones I have got in the past have not being bold in colours even in a pastel shade so I wanted to test these out to see if I get the shades I wanted on my lips.The 1st time I tried them I fell in love with Centrifuschia I love the colour and it applied well, don't need to much colour might I add to get this shade in its full glory.As for the others well its a bit of a love hate feeling with Airborne unicorn, I personally love the look of it but am not sure if I really suit it, I feel its a bit weird in tone on my lips I did find if I apply it very lightly I get a better tone but its a hard one to use, -just my thoughts there or I am not applying it right! haha! Again seems to be the same with the pink planet all the pastel shades maybe? But again applying them lightly seems to work well .All of the lipsticks are all scented in a lovely vanilla smell. Over all I do like these but have to really apply with care and thought. 


The last item I got was a eye liner in reason a slivery glittery shade its a lovely eyeliner and glides on with ease when used. Its not very noticeable but then I have not really used it for a over all look yet. I would love to try 2 other shades one being blue milk and a purple shade one. I will be trying out the new Venus Palette full of really nice shades of eye-shadows that took my interest- I hunted high and low for other brands offering same kinds of shades but nothing has turned up close so I went ahead to treat myself to this so am rather excited.

Over all what do I think of the products? I think you get a lovely kawaii looking product that gives lovely shades and a variety of bright bold and pastel shades, they might not be for every one. I guess I might buy some other shades in the Velventines as they are my fave so far. I do find they are quite pricey but not as crazy as high end priced brands. I would like to see new shades and variety. I would recommend the Velventines over the lipsticks personally. I do however love my purchased products so far! 


What do you think of these products- should I do a video review on these? Do any of you want to see these on me then check out my Instagram here !!

And time for a new wig and bag!

Hey-y every cutie!
Today I wanted to show you my newest wig. Know am a complete wig snob. huhuh. Okay maybe snob is not the word. Am very picky when it comes to wigs. I often buy from the lockshop but due to the lack of shorter styles , I have not bought from them in a while, I like my mid-length and shorter wigs. They are much easier to look after! 

So I happen to be surfing on ebay when I spotted a few wigs, when I looked at the price , I thought well if the wig is so bad at least it only £6.  Right know I cant afford any Brand wigs with my debt of buying my camera and buying the equipment each month. So I thought . I would chance it. I picked this wig here.


I liked its shade and length. I didnt have high hopes as looking at the other items they looked like cheep cosplay items so I wondered it it was going to be a hit or miss.Well lucky for me mine was a hit. The wig is actually not to bad. Its super light and that will be due to the weave's of hair being super spaced apart , Its is adjustable for size. It came with a wig cap which is super handy . The fibers are soft but I have had softer than this. (see so fussy about wigs haha!) It do have the skin top scalp bit at the crown of the wig too.

The bangs/ fringe are long but not overly long that you have to trim it. I swept mine to the side. The colour is very close to the picture and very natural. ( my camera picked up warmer tones ~eeek) So here is a worn picture.

I like this wig for what I paid for its a bargain, I have no idea how long it will last or if its a good wig as I have only worn it for a day and a half. The best thing about this colour is its very close to the shade my daughter is naturally and she loves it when mummy looks like her haha  She can be so cute. The colour of this wig is very natural and works well with my skin tones. I am a natural Jet black and slightly olive in complexion so I can get away with most shades. Am not sure what I will end up doing with this wig if - I might use it for causal wear and days out and about with the little one. I have ordered 2 more wigs from the same seller. So I will be able to see if this is a case of a hit or miss from this place too. heh. I will let you know how they go - one will be an alternative wig to wear when am being a maid at Marshmallow Dream Maids.
So the other thing I wanted to show you today is my cheeky and funky bag its like a 3D effect bag, cartoon style. Its so funky and Kawaii! From the photo it looks so big right? DO NOT BE FOOLED! I was fully aware it was a small and flat bag!  Its got a tiny inside I can only fit in my purse, phone, Keys and Babywipes...yes the wise Kawaii mummy puts baby wipes in every bag! You end up using wipes for everything as a mummy haha!  I might be able to put a spare Pull up nappy in there but I would not be using this bag as I have other ''Kawaii Mummy bags'' to use lol!
The prices of these bags range a bit on ebay and they have a few to pick from. I love the over all quirky-ness of the bag and its something I will use if am nipping into the city or the local shops on my own or such. Plus is just so kawaii! Though Chibi bean has been eyeing it up - its only a matter of time of her claiming it as her own.
Hope you all enjoyed my post today!
