Caked Make Up - Review.

Okay so if you have been on my instagram you will or might have seen me post a few images of new make up, lipsticks. Yes. I am a lipstick addict. I love my lipsticks. My normal go to brands are Limecrime, Beauty Bakerie and Jeffree Star. But have you heard of Caked Make up , No? Well they are worth checking out!

This brand caught my attention on instagram . Caked Make Up a indie brand which might be why you have not come across them yet also they are based in the USA . The packaging was the one thing to get my attention and I think it was seeing a shade on Sugarpills instagram ( I also like them too .) that I found them via. Any way I looked at the website , They are Vegan and animal cruelty free and  have super cute packaging . Liquid matt lippy . Then I stopped and looked again it is not a liquid matt formula but instead a Fondant formula.  Now I was going to review this right away when I got my hands on my 1st ever one but over the past few months I collected the whole range .Which is  9 in total . I finally have them all and wanted to share them all with you and my review on them too.




So going back to the website would of meant ordering via USA but I was overjoyed to fine Cocktail Cosmetics got the range in stock so that saved me on customs and shipping waiting time- wooo! I started off buying the brighter shades as the light ones on the company website , the shades and swatches looked way to light and I was not so sure on them. Also I found it hard to get a good image of each colour swatch wise for myself . I got hold of Power Trip and right away the shade is one of my favourites . I loved the feel of the formula compared to the watery runny or clumpy feels from the other ones but I was worried on the drying time.


''Lip Fondants go on with a mousse-like texture and dry completely matte. Apply a thin coat & allow the product to dry down completely before adding additional layers. For the longest wear possible, avoid foods with oil.''

You really do need to apply it with a thin coat and let it dry , they do not take that long to dry but I wait until its completely dry before moving on. They do feel a tad sticky at first but it drys and all is good. I do find they are pretty long lasting and they one wear down a little. They do transfer a samll amount all my cups and forks all had lipstick marks.Not full on marks but little bits. More so the darker shades. Even with that transfer they still last a long time. Try to keep off any oily food too cause that brakes down the formula .
They all apply well, The formula is thick but you only need a little of the product . They dry well but if there is to much product in clumps it will not dry well . So keep it super light. Also they all have that sweet smell of cakes. Which kind ,I can not quite place but they smell so good!



There is a nice mix of shades, Some are nice and bright and you have your more toned down shades , I will say I found the images on the website rather lighter on the model/ lips. It might just be me but I found them slightly darker in shade. But again that could be me.  I also love the cute heart text fonts going on here too! CUTE!


This is the packaging here as you can see its your doe foot stick applicator  and when you open it the smell is yum! Also please be careful not to load up the doe foot of product and always make sure you screw the lid back on tight!




Where are my Swatches of the shades left to right we have copy and paste , creme de la creme,  Foreva eva, QT, low Key , jelly , legit, sweet tooth and power trip. Out of them all I would say my go to shades are legit and power trip and then it would be creme de la creme and sweet tooth. To be honest I like them all it is some times hard to pick which ones to wear. 

Compared to the other brands I use I do like these. I like the formula. They do last a long time and slightly transfer like Jeffree stars ones. So far I have not found a lippy that has as much staying power as Beauty Bakeries ones. But I do enjoy these ones as they are cute, quirky and smell like cakes! And the shades are every day shades you could get away with or a little something to brighten up your day!

So over all I would give these a 9 out of 10 Kawaii stars!

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!

Later's cuties

Keep it Kawaii!

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 !!

Kiss Kiss Chu

It may be cause I am wearing some lip stick to day,but  felt the need to to Blog about cute lippy.
Personally I love lots of bright red pillar box shades,but I also like to venture out and try other colours too.
-its fun trying new looks too-
I think its a bit of trail and error when it comes to lip sticks and make up,but as a nice simple rule to keep in mind if your wanting to show off the eyes then use a light/pale colour on the lips and the other way round bright lips and natural/light eyes.Some times it can be done with both or look a bit well daft (silly) like.

I like the cute doll like look with make up,so when i use that sort of make up style I will pick pale nude shade or rose like pinks with a hint of shimmer .I like to add a clear gloss over the shade to make it look fresh and sweet looking and or doll like.
