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!

Make- up review~ Japanese or UK make- up?!


Hello there Cuties! Hope you are all well and ready for this review.
I for some time been wanting to but some Japanese make up as well as some Korean make up too,
Maybe its all in my head but I wanted to compare the brands with each other and see if it is worth it to buy the other brands from over sea or not. 



So far I have only 2 lip tints form a Korean shop which I use  more a less every second day. Am a huge make-up junkie anyway and want to try over-sea make up.
I also wondered if by using over seas make up if it would improve my skills and create more Japanese styles in make up or look more doll like. 


So I bought 2 eye palette's one new form Barry M ( Natural Glow.)as you all know I adore Barry M make-up and a Japanese make up palette called Kanebo Lavshuca melty hearts. This is my 1st comparision review so please be gentle on me, nya!






As you can see the item is well  displayed. It has a nice selection of colours to pick from to create a natural  glow in eye make up with a Blusher too . The pressed eye shadow takes a wee bit of rubbing to get a good amount on the applicator but the blusher was easy to use, I think its cause the shadows are in small spaces.
 Here is a photo of the eye make up with my own eye-liner and mascara which I have kept the same when I used the other make up too.


I have to say I am slightly disappointed on the colours from BarryM this time as normally the colour's are great, this palette colours where far to light for my personal liking even the darker shades.
I think using a wet brush might help with these colours but I was planning to use these more for my casual days and everyday but I think I will not use it as much as I was hopping.
However!
The lightness of the colours is still very good for beginners and for making your eyes look larger but the dark colours will not be the best for making shadows.
I shall be sticking to the Trio colour pallet from now on!!

Moving on the Japanese Palette Lavshauca.
Here are some Photos of the Packaging of the product.

 



The Palette is cute, but its tiny! Which put me off the applicator also was a bit fiddly I picked some natural shades,this one has some lights and darks in more browns it was had to find something to match BarryM  completely. As you can see you don't get a Blusher or as many colours but you got this stunning red.


Again the Colours were very light but they seemed to have a better pigment which was good for both highlighting and shadows. The Red was a nice touch but you could easily by a red eye shadow to use.
The colours were hard to use with the given applicator - so I used my own brush for the red to line it more than blend. Maybe I was being a bit light handed with the shades.

Overall thoughts...
I do love BarryM , I really do but this product, is not for me personally,I do like the overall look and display of the item.The Japanese one was really small which was a bit annoying.
However I would say that I much prefer the Melty Hearts out of the two products for the colours pigments.
Even the price can't sway me even though Barry M was Cheaper I still am picking Mety hearts over it , the price was more thanks to shipping.
My thinking is for doing Japanese make up find a brand you like and find the basics of doing Japanese styles, like creating bigger eyes I think that the Japanese brands might be slightly  better for these sort of styles as they are trendy over there and wanted.Where over here we are not after that sort of look ( Just yet.) I think if you can master the basics of make-up and styles then any good make up will work on your benefit.This would not stop me form trying more Japanese brands and make up even Korean makes though!
(Teehee!)
