KATE Spring Collection Haul & Review: Cream Cheek, Real Create Eyes and Dual Eyeliner

KATE-Real-Cerate-Eyes-Cream-Cheek-Blusher.jpg

KATE (a Kanebo brand) is one of the old schooler’s of Japanese drugstore cosmetics.  I used to place the brand head to head with Lavshuca and there was a phase when both of the brands would release killer ranges every season but Lavshuca has been majorly disappointing of late, as has KATE. Nevertheless I picked up 3 products from their newest Spring 2012 releases.  I got their dual ended eyeliner pencil which has a black […]

Visee Meets Blondy Glam Nude Eyes Eyeshadow Palette Haul in Classical Bitter Chocolate!

Visee-Meets-Blondy-Glam-Nude-Eyes-Eyeshadow-Palette-Haul-in-Classical-Bitter-Chocolate.jpg

I’ve recently really got into neutral eye looks; maybe because it’s just easier to apply and is great for work. Thus I have acquired (as you will see) a number of neutral eyeshadow palettes! The thing about Japanese palettes is that they are always shimmery and slightly sheer.  It’s nice to have some mattes and some bolds in a palette especially when you have a whopping 5 colours to choose from. I purchased Visee’s newest […]

Collagen Skincare? SANA Hadanomy Collagen Cleansing Gel and Collagen Cream Review

Collagen-Skincare-SANA-Hadanomy-Collagen-Cleansing-Gel-and-Collagen-Cream-Review.jpg

Hallo, hallo, hallo! How glad am I that it’s finally Friday. It has been an extremely long week! One thing I have been keen on doing this week is trying different skincare out because of my increasingly spotty but also sensitive skin.  In this case I am thinking that simple is better. I know my skin can’t handle too many anti-aging or active ingredients.  SANA Hadanomy Collagen skincare has been around for a while now, […]

Canmake Powder Eyeliner Review and Swatches

Canmake-Powder-Eyeliner.jpg

I’ve been looking for a really good powder liner for a while; a friend of mine always uses one to tightline (I don’t because I find powder that close to my eyeball irritates it) and then she blends the black away into a really soft, flattering daytime look. Canmake released some gel pencil liners (review coming up) and 2 powder liners late last year. I am a complete sucker when it comes to eyeliners; I […]

Favourite Brown Eyeliners: La Rose de Versailles Creer Beaute Brown Eyeliner Range!

La-Rose-de-Versailles-Creer-Beaute-Brown-Eyeliner-Range.jpg

I love black eyeliner – oh how I love deep dark black eyeliner. But I realised a few months ago that it is really easy to go overboard and look panda eyed in the day. I bought a number of brown eyeliners but I found that it was hard to find the right tone for me, and the right texture. I like dark browns that look brown rather than a slightly lighter black, as I […]

Eyeshadow in a hurry: SANA Super Quick Eye Pencil in Hazel Review

SANA-Super-Quick-Waterproof-Eye-Pencil-in-Hazel-.jpg

SANA is a Japanese brand I really like because it has so many funky little quirky products.  I like the Super Quick range – it consists of a few products for eyes and lips and focuses on creating quick, easy to use, long lasting items.  On a side note, their lip gloss is gorgeous, their mascara is lame. I spotted this cool eye pencil from SANA, a eyeshadow in a stick if you like, which […]

The Lipstick Blusher! Addiction Cheek Stick: Amazing and Nocturne Review and Swatches

Addiction-Cheek-Stick-Nocturne-Amazing-1.jpg

There are some products you wait and lust over for quite a while before they end up in your possession.  This is exactly what happened with the Kose Addiction Cheek Sticks. I have wanted them for a long time and finally they are mine!  I chose 2 shades, Amazing a hot pink and Nocturne, a nude beige. What is a cheek stick?! What? Eh?! Why? Why do you like it so much? Huh? It’s actually […]

Shiseido Integrate High Impact Make Up Gel Eyeliner in Black Review and Swatches

Shiseido-Integrate-High-Impact-Make-Up-Gel-Eyeliner-in-Black-Review-and-Swatches.jpg

I am actually quite addicted to eyeliner, especially these new gel type ones which are rich and pigmented. I had to buy Shiseido’s Integrate High Impact Gel Eyeliner because it is a real hit in Japan, a bestseller due to it’s super rich pigmented black colour and soft texture.  Or so they say.  Here is the pencil – it comes in a sealed plastic strip: The pencil is a swivel up one, so it doesn’t […]
