The I want straight hair haul: Featuring Salon Style, Kracie Fuwarie and Liese Hair Wax

Salon-Style-Milky-Wax-Kracie-Fuwarie-Liese-Clear-Wax.jpg

Regular readers will know I had a perm recently and it was not a fun experience. Now, nearly 4 months later the perm has started to loosen and I am straightening my hair every time I dry it. I honestly find most western branded styling products too heavy and crispy. Japanese hair styling products, in my experience, are lighter and don’t tend to leave any crusty, crispy bits. Because I buy things in 3′s I […]

Love it! Esprique Blend Dimensional Eyes and Melty Fix Cheek Haul

Esprique-Blend-Dimensional-Eyeshadow-1.jpg

Esprique Precious, a fabulous Japanese make up brand was renamed Esprique a while back and I didn’t really buy anything from the range until now. I was suckered in by the elegant look of this collection and purchased one eyeshadow palette, in A4 and two of the melty cheek blush sticks – these are uncommon in Japanese make up ranges. I got two melty fix cheek blushers in BE300 which is a beige I thought […]

Cheap, and cheerful? Canmake Eyeshadow Base and Primer Review

Canmake-Eyeshadow-Base-Pigment-Primer.jpg

Canmake is a drugstore/high street (whatever you want to call it) level cosmetic brand from Japan. Think Collection 2000. But much, much better and more innovative for the price! I purchased this eyeshadow base, because I am a sucker for primers of any kind. They say: A creamy eyeshadow base enhances colour payoff and prevents unsightly creases for eye makeup that stays vibrant and fresh even well into the night. Moist formula quickly turns to […]

I like them thick: Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Super Marker Pen Eye Liner

Kiss-Me-Heavy-Rotation-Eyeliner-Liner-Felt-.jpg

Kiss Me are such a good Japanese brand and their sub brand Heavy Rotation is even better – they make really nude lip glosses and strong black eyeliner – no holds barred basically (where a lot of other Japanese brands are softer and shimmery). Heavy Rotation launched a new mascara and a new marker pen liner – I bought both but here is the liner review for you first: For me, pen liners, especially if […]

Majolica Majorca Pink Nail Polish Haul: PK411, PK217, PK412 and WT909

Majolica-Majorca-Nail-Polish-Pink-White.jpg

Majolica Majorca have a cute collection of nail polishes that are very affordable , although the bottles are quite dinky in comparison to some Western brands. They Speedy & Glossy range were on sale recently, so I picked up 4 new colours from adambeauty.com. Pinks…I am really into pink at the moment! Hot pinks and bright pinks! Here they are: I think I paid about £3-£4 each for these? What I do like about them […]

Battle of the Purples: Lunasol Ocean Scene Eyeshadow Palette Warm Ocean and Sheer Contrast Eyes Lavender Coral

Lunasol-Sheer-Contrast-Eyes-Ocean-Eyes-.jpg

I have a beauty lust list of some items I really want but are expensive and I can’t justify buying. Then when I achieve something new I got to the hit list to give myself a treat. This was the case when I bought not 1, but 2 purple/lavender palettes I have wanted for a long, long time. More than I wanted this full set! These two palettes were Lunasol Sheer Contrast Eyes in Lavender […]

Mascara that holds curl! Sony CP B&C Volume Up Fiber Mascara Review

BC-Sony-CP-Volume-Lash-Fiber-Mascara-Fiberwig-1.jpg

Despite my disappointment at B&C’s Lash Sculpture mascara I decided to purchase their newest one, which is Volume Up Fiber. And it’s pink! How lovely! I like the Sony CP cosmetic range and to be honest, I like BCL products in general just because they’re a bit different. Here s the mascara: Japanese mascara’s are pretty different to standard Western counterparts. They are always waterproof or water resistant – they’re drier, generally, never as wet […]

Is brown eyeliner better than black? Testing Majolica Majorca Cream Pencil Liner

Majolica-Majorca-Cream-Brown-Pencil-.jpg

I love my black eyeliner and black mascara – I really, really do, but there comes a day when you look in the mirror and: Yeah – you’ve morphed into a panda and you don’t know how or why. Sigh. I’ve been using brown eyeliner more for day time and it’s so pretty! Far more wearable, especially for the office. Majolica Majorca Cream Pencil is one of my favourite pencils at the moment – it’s […]
