Make-up Haul Review

Hello Kawaii lovers!
How are you all today?
Today I got my newest Haul of make up thanks to Superdrug 3 for 2 offer, on all make-up that is currently in stores and online. I took the chance to try some new make up and get some much needed foundation powders! I wanted to try this branded name Sleek. I have seen it many times in the shop but never got round to trying it out.
Any how my parcel came mid week with my products,since I have to travel to Superdrug or any other shop in that matter...Online shopping is a god send hehe! 
You can pick up Sleek make up online from them direct too here with the Link here, and also on Facebook .
What I do like about the Sleek Website is when you look at the products and read about them , they have a bit down the bottom where it tells you how to use the products too! Cool, Huh?!


Here are the products I got a Press Powder a Base Duo Kit and a pallet called Face form.
The product packages are,well sleek lol! 
They are simple and well all in black, am thinking its their trademark or something, I like black but the way they use the pallets and everything having a mirror is a great extra which you can see from my photos.






Each of my pieces had their own mirrors and the duo box was cleverly designed to fit the product into the box. The press powder has its own sponge, I will be using my own brushes for it though.
Here are some close ups for you to see.


The middle and right colours have more of a shimmer to the make-up and the one of the left of the Face form is a matt and slightly darker shade.I got the Light shade.




I got the Duo Set in Bamboo, I really should have gone for a lighter shade with the crem'e as its a tad to dark but nothing I cant adjust myself. I think White rose would be better or in the Shell shade. 
I now know for next time ,teehee.


Here is the Press powder that has a SPF 15 and is to give a Suede effect, I have noticed it has a shimmer through this but gives a nice matt finish to the make- up.
Am fairly happy with my items and love the Face form its great! Over all, I like the nice even base  they all give you and its easy to work with this make up and more so with the selection of shades you can buy.
I think can see me using and buying Sleek products in the future, more so with the reasonable prices for the items too. 
I have been requested to review more make up but next time I shall be looking into researching ...yup you guessed it  Japanese brands. As am looking for Dolly like eye make up its high up on my list of  eye make up products so watch this space as its gona be a great blog post to look forward too!
*But keep in mind its not just the brand or where its from that always matters, its how you do your make up to achieve your looks. 

Till next time.

Kawaii lip balms

Winter...its cold,you come in the house or office and the heat dries out your skin and your lush lips,it is so annoying,chapped lips are not Kawaii at all or nice to have, so why not lacker them in some Kawaii lippy gloss and give you a reason to smile through the winter months.
Here is some cuties I have found on the Internet.

Kawaii Nail Art

So a few of you wanted to know how I do my nails.I wear fake nails from time to time,As a mummy and house wife when I am not on the hunt of Kawaii or bring you Kawaii. 
Its all chores and hard work and my nails don't get the love and attention to stay long,so I keep em short even though I love long nails and more so if they are super Kawaii!

Barry M review

I spoke of Barry M cosmetics before,the reason i like these products is cause they are NOT tested on animals  like other brands so I don't feel so guilty,I like other brands too because the good but really that is not the best excuse...so maybe I could look into swapping all my stuff to BarryM.
So I put in a order via the web site,I do have a local store that sells Barry M but they never seem to restock often so I bought from the web site 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.

Fluttering Lashies

So a week or so I entered a Twitter contest with Bourjois UK.

I never have much hope in myself when it comes to these things but  was 100% shocked when I got a DM (direct message) from them!
Yes.

0___o
I won a prize! 
I won the fake lashes I asked for to go with my new rock out hair cut and the new Bourjois fancy Tweezers for applying lashes they have.
My prize came super fast and I got the Rock chic ones.
I Really like the style of them and there is a few styles,I already have my heart set on the lace ones!


These are what they look like so pretty!


The smoky eyes are pretty but I may get the lace ones for my Fairy outfit  for halloween!
I love my rock chic ones (sorry don't have a photo will get ones for you soon!)
Easy to use and easy to tailor to size and light to wear.


The Tweezers is also really smart.
I use a lot of lashes with my outfits to this will come in handy a lot!
I have used it lots of times on other lashes too,They are fab for holding the lashes and adding the glue as well as for even just picking them out the packet,Many a times I have lost lashes from getting them out the packet.

TT__TT

So the Grabby end is from holding the lashes and its angled to make it easy to take them up to the eyelids,the other end is like a angled tip to help stick the lashes into place where they refuse to stay put.
Id give this a 10 out of 10.
Fab idea!
Makes life that bit more easy and I no longer dread putting on lashes!
You can find Bourjois online in your local Boots and Superdrug.

^__^

I cant wait to get the other lashes!
Rock on Bourjois ,I LOVE your products,swear by them!

Whats you most loved High street make up brand?
I would love it if you shared.
Im a huge Bourjois Fan and a bit of a Barry M fan too.

With these lashes you have the cutest Eyes ever!
Stay Super Kawaii!

SassyNpunk

Sassy N punk is a online Boutique.
I love there colourful stuff and with my soft spot for Sailor moon who can not resist a good look on what they have to offer! I have been looking at all their things and loved so many Kawaii products that are loud colourful and different to some of the UK online shops.I like to vary my Kawaii stuff.
>__<

You will find sassyNpunk here and I highly recommend that you check the out,I have seen a few things I really liked,Though I am a child in a candy shop when it comes to Kawaii products but One product caught my eye that really is cute 

I ordered this necklace.
There is a reason why I fell in love with it is these Macaroon's are quite popular in France and with my other half being in jersey it was his folks that were telling me all about them  when they were in France and I have been allured by them ever since to maybe this is why I got this one in the end.


When I opened it up I was like a child all giggly inside and loved the attention to detail of the Macaroon the outer of it being smooth and a Gem on it and The edging having the detail of a Real Macaroon.


.The inside or Filling I should say has glittery mini gold balls and one large Gem in it and is in the perfect whipped filling shape its just Magic!
*^o^*
~Can you tell I am impressed?!



It came on a pretty shiny Ball style chain and its quite sturdy,It needs to be with my little Chibi bean with her grabby hands.
¬.¬'

And There is actually some weight the product,But I am glad cause that way I would notice if my lil Macaroon was to be lost and lets hope that never happens cause I would be very sad.The shipping also took about 15-18 days and was not expensive at all and the website was easy to use thought sometimes I felt like I had to dig through all the Kawaii stuff but in a good way!


I already have a Great idea for a shoot for this to be in with my outfit and accessories so sassyNpunk Watch this space!
n.~
*wink's*


The other things I really loved from sassyNpunk was this necklace that was done in Kanji and means Beautiful in Japanese and this other one that you get it made with your name !
Which is really cool!
