Such pretty lashes!!

After just reading Mitsu's post about Gilfy make up and nails.
I have to  post that I am smitten with these lashes!

To be honest ,other people have blogged before about other Shu Uemura lashes and I've never thought I'd like to own those,but these ones are so cute.Love the purple and the stars !
However I will have to wait until I go to London as thats the closest place for me to get them:(

Not much else to blog about really,I'm still in the process of sorting my bedroom out  and waiting for my shopping service deliveryXD

Other than that just working and sleeping mostly,I think I've got the winter blues:(
Hopefully though that'll be cured by going to Leicester to see the bf and all my uni friends for a short but very packed weekend of good food,good company and a chance to visit Zara!!!!(its been too long) XD

I will resist (or try to) the lure of the MAC counter although I would like one or two of their eyeshadows, I'm currently trying to save so I purchase some NARS products to add to my pitiful collection of ....1 eyeshadow!!:S. not much of a collection eh!It is a gorgeous eyeshadow thou,CanCan
I'm  soo tempted at the moment by the Sheer Glow Foundation especially after reading rave reviews of it...however it is about £30!!!!!(TAT) one day maybe

  
I'd love to get some of their duo eyeshadows and maybe try out the cult favourite orgasm and deep throat blushers XD aswell.

I've not really been lusting after much make up recently,other than the YSL lipsticks previously posted .Im only really interested in NARS ,few items from MAC,few from Urban decay and the candy doll lipglosses. :O

update and IN and Out 3

Soo its been a busy weekend,I moved bedrooms yesterday,after a lick of paint,some organising and ruthless binning ,all of my belongings are in a home in my new bigger room:)
I'll post pics when its completed.

I completely forgot to post about something.
Months and months ago I posted asking about shopping services and recently after decideing for my resolution to only buy clothing I really like and know I will wear, I made a purchase:O
 Its exciting checking my order status, sad I know but I've never brought any clothing using a shopping service before XD





 So on to my INs and OUTs for this week:)

IN

NYX
I'm mostly meaning the palettes I got recently  but the other NYX products I've got are really good as well. The palettes thou are awesome, I’m especially loving my #3champagne and caviar one this week which is filled with a lovely selection of browns and neutrals. The quality of the shadows is wonderful, their pigmented and silky  XD and to top it off the price is good.
Two palettes for around £13 including p+p~here






Maybelline colossal Mascara
I tend not to buy a lot of western cosmetic because the adverts they make annoy me, you know the ones with the small print saying "filmed with lash inserts" or "Some natural hair extensions used" personally I think if the products actually do what they advertise to  then why use the lash inserts or extensions. Thus I conclude they must not work like they claim  and I don't waste my money!
However I don't write products entirely off ,I just research a lot before I buy.
Anyways this mascara has replaced my Déjà vu Fiber wig which I brought to replace my Majolica Majorca extend elegantly(which I intend to repurchase).
My fiber wig has been annoying me recently, while you can get great length with it ,its a bit timely to do so and its not as black as I would like for my mascara to be. Whereas colossal gives my lashes volume and really makes my lashes stand out.
My only annoyance  with it is that I don't own the waterproof version, not that I've had mascara running down my face in the day or anything  its just personal preference that my mascaras are waterproof:)



Homeopathy
Bit of an odd one I know, but I was so impressed I had to write about it.
While I'm not really a passionate believer in alternate therapies I don't disbelieve either.
However the last year or so one of my cats has been ill, the vet thought it was arthritis or epilepsy and all the meds she gave made him a little better but didn't cure him and he ended up chubby and unhappy:(
After watching his "fits" I realised they looked more like pain spasms and seem to be originating from his lower back, which was confirmed by him spasming every time anyone even put their hand over that area. He was so bad we even thought we'd have to put him down!

So I  decided to treat him with homeopathy seeing as nothing the vet prescribed really worked .....month down the line....he's fine. Absolutely fine! its bizarre, I’ve been giving him Hypericum for nerve damage and he’s like a brand new cat!

(taken by my sister)

 Good conversation with good people
Awww  almost sickening but isn't it wonderful to have a fantastic convo with an interesting fun person !! I mention it as today I went for coffee with an old friend of mine ,every time I see him we always have such interesting and in depth convos but talk about silly things as well i.e. his disaster plans he made for work which included what they'd do if zombies attacked...ehhh:S I wish I'd  been there when his boss read that!

OUT

My lack of a decent camera!!!! Its beginning to frustrate me a lot, I'll have a blog entry in mind and try to take some decent pictures for it and usually give up as the quality is never how it looks in real life. I know "A bad workman always blames his tools" but I swear it just doesn't look the same!!
I had plans recently to post an eyeliner tips post /possible a tutorial ,I've taken the photos and while they don't look awful they don't look nearly as crisp or vibrant as it does in real life. AHhhhhhh frustrating!!

Bobble hats

I seem to have gotten quite addicted to bobble hats recently,currently I own 3.However I hoping to expand that to 5!
I've my eye on a Gilfy hat ,some wc hats and a surprisingly cheap SBY hat.

Gilfy






SBY







 




wc

 I was debating these 2 wc hats for over an hour tonight,sad but true:(

 



I love this girls boots!

 

Finally decided on the white one because its more versatile and will go with more of my clothes ..but I love the blue one the shape is nicer and the bear is cuterrr!

 





Which wc hat does everyone else like?

In and out 2

Again I actually have something to put into an in and out post.

IN
Embryolisse cream!
Love this!
I have never liked moisturising my face,i always felt it made my face feel grim and greasy,which was probably a knock on effect of not moisturising it .
I don't have especially dry skin,its more combination with my previous lack of moisturising not helping my skin at all.So I use it both morning and night, and my skin feels smoother and softer and I will defiantly buy this again!



Second products is a blush I've had for about a month.
Its Sleeks Pixie Pink,Love this too!

I use it over MAC well dressed to give my blush alittle more of a pink pop,very pigmented and a really gorgeous colour (doesn't it look abit like NARS~Desire?)
comparison photo

Wow blurry MAC on the left and Sleek on the right

OUT

The snow!
As pretty as it is and awesome that the kids get school off ,it's just caused me havoc and made me very late for work!Where's my snow day!
I'd also like to wear shoes that aren't weather specific and be able to walk without the fear of slipping!

Dupes and Make up products easily available to Uk gyaru:)

Ahh it was nearly a month ago I created this post:O
DISCLAIMER:This is just a collection of my thoughts and opinion,intended to inform not persuade:)I've tried to included links to sites I've brought from before but still be wary as I've included one or two sites I've not brought from just to show the products.

After reading Milichi's awesome nude lip tutorial ,I thought about making a post about products for getting nude lips that were easily avalible in the UK.
I then decided to make a whole post about products that were readily available in the UK for gyaru make upXD


Products that I've found while looking for similar things that I've seen in gyaru magazines
For lips:
Base~Either foundation ,concealer (I don't really use those two but their options)
I use Barry-m 101 Lip paint or MAC painterly paint pot

Followed by..
Glosses~Lancome strawberry sorbet,MAC oyster girl or c thru MAC Pink fish lip conditioner NYX and recently YSL Lingerie PinkXD


Products that are in gyaru mags that are available abroad

I see alot of Revlon, Boujois, l'oreal, Maybelline,The body shop,MAC and NARS products in model's make up bags and in tutorials in mags with Bobbi Brown cropping up recently.Their collections seem to be made up of drugstore brands ,some higher end brands and then Japanese brands such as Canmake,co&lu,Kate,Cezanne,Visee,AC, Charcott, Candydoll,RMK and a few others.
Some of which can be purchased from this website http://ichibankao.com/default.aspx ~I have brought from them before and intend to buy again.

Scans from Jelly(Not by me)



Scans from Ranzuki (Not scanned by me)

Scans from Egg beauty 09 (Not scanned by me)





(all scans from Livejournal.I did not scan these)

Embryolisse Creme


I got mine from Screenface in London for about £14/15
I wanted to get this as I noticed it was being used a primer in most of the tutorials I saw it in.
I am really happy with it,I don't like moisterising my face(terrible I know) because it makes my skin feel greasy and grim(at least it does to me) with this my skin feels hydrated!I put it on a night and before my make up and the difference in my skin is lovely,its make it feel even and softXD




I also keep seeing NYX products croping up in some of the mags as well ,most recently a page spread in JELLY(which I can't seem to find at the moment) I recently brougt 2 palettes and a concealer from this seller they've not arrived yet but the seller has 100% feedback.

Dupes

Eylure at the top and MAC #7 at the bottom


Dupe for MAC#7 lash=Eylure:Miss eylure Ava (avalible from Superdrugs or Boots)
These are what I used before I got some #7's.They look alot like to me tbh,placing them together you notice their differences in size and quality but their good for a cheap alternative.Only downside I can say is the fact they come pre glued(yuk) and it's abit of a pain to remove the glue,so I stick them to something to make the glue tacky and then remove it.
Eylure with MAC #33

MAC #7 and #33




Gosh ~Darling is allegedly a dupe for MAC myth.Personaly I don't know as I've never tried either as I feel MAC myth is too dark for my skin tone,but I intend to try gosh's Darling as its relatively inexpensive(in comparison)and Superdrugs often have a 3 for 2 offer on Gosh productsXD



Lower lashes~I get mine from Screenface in London,red cherry also sell lower lash and there are lots of ebay sellers now who are selling them!Just type in "lower lashes"
Top two sets are from Screenface and the bottom set are from ebay.

Sleek have some good quality shadows and blushes,I'm liking the pixie pink one recently,looks alot like some of the ones featured in the mags.(like Canmake and NARS)

Here it is compared with MAC Well dressed and Barry M (can't remember the name:O)




Glitter Liners~Collection 2000
I love these liners,I've not tried the urban decays ones but I have swatched them and these ones seem more packed with glitter imo:)


Hope this post was of use to someone:D
Questions and feedback are welcome.

I'll proberly continue to add to this as Im not 100% happy with it but I just wanted to finally post it up.
