Review: KKCenterHk Landbis Big Eye Dual-use Eyeliner

Today I have another eyeliner I received from KKCenterHk to show you:  Landbis Big Eye Dual-use Eyeliner in black.  I was always intrigued by eyeliners that have one side liquid and the other side a twist eyeliner.  I never bought them because I never really thought of it as something easier to have in my to go bag  or cosmetic bag.  It's always been a separate thing or just carry one eyeliner.  This changes things a bit for me.

Review: KKCenterHk N.Nail Lotus Ink Painting & Ink Painting Water Decals

Today I have two wonderful water nail decals to show you.  I picked these from KKCenterHk because it reminded me of a Chinese ink paintings that I have seen before.  They are N. Nail Lotus Ink Painting [WDDG079] and N.Nail Ink Painting [WDDG078].  As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to have it and what I wanted to do with them.  I decided to wear both of them:  Lotus - right hand; Ink - left hand.

First up...
N.Nail Ink Painting [WDDG078]:

These really reminded me of those Chinese ink paintings I use to see when I went into a Chinese restaurant or walked around the art museum.  It comes with five different images and giving you a total of twenty images.

Size: 15mm x 15mm x 102mm


Review: Femme Fatale Cosmetics Eyeshadows I won

Awhile ago I received notification that I have won 2nd place from Femme Fatale Cosmetics.  I was super excited to get these since I was planning on purchasing from the company anyways.  This just made things so much better and will be my first time trying out their product.  So what better way than to enter their giveaway for a chance to win, right?  Super glad I did, and still in shock that I won.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics is an indie company that is based in Australia, and they specialize in mineral cosmetics, and not to mention recently have started to do Indie polishes as well.  Their products are blended by hand which makes their products even more special.  Sophie, the owner, was very kind and helpful when I was making my decision.  Also she's very pretty!


Review: KKCenterHk N.Nail Water Decal French Tip Nail Art

Today I have a pretty French floral tip water decal [WDB062] to show you.
I received these from KKCenterHk and they only cost $2.82 a sheet.  They carry several other French tip water decal designs as well (prices may vary).   They come with 14 images instead of 20, but at the price I still find it cheap.


Review: KKCenterHk - 12 Pieces Middle Clear & 3D Bow False Nails Tips

Today I have a nifty false nails tip to show you, which I received from KKCenterHk.  It's their 12 Pieces Middle Clear and 3D Bow False Nails Tips [N248].
I decided to pick these because I love the fact that there is a clear middle section, despite it having glitter you could still see the nail bed.


Review: KKCenterHk - N.NAIL Water Decals Pirate Skull

Today my nails are sporting a water nail decal sheet that I received from KKCentherHk.  It's an N.NAIL Water Decals Pirate Skulls [WDBLE373].  I decided the pirate skulls would be nice since Halloween is just around the corner, and my son loves pirates.


Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox 2012

The other day I had received my second VoxBox from Influenster, which is their Beauty Blogger VoxBox.  If you have not heard of Influenster it's basically a site of trendsetters who could share their lifestyles and show off their influence upon items they received.  You sign up and basically take surveys, which are their badges.  The badges you earn will help them better understand you, and decide what to give you in your personalized box of goodies.  Oh and did I mention it's FREE?  Yup that's right! 
If you qualify for their boxes they will send you an email, that will show you a link in your profile.  You have a certain amount of days to fill out the form.  So my suggestion once you obtain that email, get at it really fast! 
When you get a VoxBox you don't really know what you get until someone who got theirs before you post up a picture or until you get it.  When they send out the notification the package has been shipped I do not look for pictures to get an idea.  I like surprises and I was actually surprised by it.  I was mostly surprised that nothing broke on its way to me, since they do not wrap anything up at all, which is the down part of it.  But still a great way for experiencing new products.

Review: CUICU Flashing Diamond Single Eyeshadow - Coral Orange & Eggplant Purple

I am so excited to share with you a product I received from KKCenterHK that I instantly fell in love with.  It is two of the CUICU Flashing Diamond Single Eyeshadows: Coral Orange, and Eggplant Purple.  KKCenterHk is a cosmetic online shop that carries various items from lipstick to nail polish to wigs.  The list just goes on really, and you will find yourself discovering new items.

I like how the package is just very sleek and simple.  Not to mention you could see the color of the eyeshadow without even opening the box.  They come in 4.2g which is more than some eyeshadow pans really.  For example:  Sugarpill Cosmetics pan is 4g; MAC Cosmetics pan is 1.5g.  So you really get a lot of product for such a great price really.  

How pretty do those look inside their pan?  When it comes to eyeshadows, I understand how tricky products could be.  Looks pretty and seems pigmented, but once you swatch it isn't that much.  These eyeshadows are not one of them what so ever.


Review: Eylure Naturalites 011

Today I get to share with you another natural false eyelash from the company Eylure.  It is one of their Naturalites in 011 style; which is a shorter version of their 116 style.  Eylure's lashes are made of 100% human hair, and they are reusable and suitable for those wear contact/circle lenses. You could find their products at ULTA stores/online. They go for about $5.99 a set and I consider that a great price.

On the back of the package they supply you with a diagram of how to apply the lashes, which I find very useful for those who are not clear with the instructions or do not like to read.

The kit comes with a pamphlet of instructions and caring guide, and also their Lashfix (their eyelash glue).  I find that their eyelash glue is just as good as DUO and Daiso.  The Lashfix has a spatula applicator, which makes it super easy to apply on to false lashes.  The small tube is wonders as well for when you're making prosthetics for your Halloween costume.  You could toss the tube in your makeup bag for a quick "UH-OH GOTTA FIX IT" situations.  When I use their Lashfix the lashes stay on the whole time I wear it, until it's time to remove it. 


My October Birchbox

Birchbox is basically a subscription site where you pay monthy or yearly and receive several items in a box depending on your profile (questions you answered).  It's a hit and miss with the boxes at times but it's not something that actually bothers me.  It's a gamble that could open your eyes up to new products.  And honestly I prefer the $10 for a box of say five items than paying $12 for a deluxe sample etc.  
 So for this month their focus was on transformation.  
Like always it includes a card giving a description of what they mean or the theme of the box.  


Review: Etude House Drawing Show Creamy Liner - BK802 Black Double Shot

Today I am so excited to show you some goodies that I had received from the company Cosmetic Love, which is a Korean-based online shop that sells a lot of Asian cosmetics.  They carry various products from nail polish to BB creams to eyeliners to lipstick.  Their site even carries skin care products and items for men as well.  Just to list a few big name Asian Brands:  TonyMoly, Skin79, Missha, Etude House, and the list goes on.  Their website is very easy to navigate through.

I picked the Etude House Drawing Show Creamy Liner in BK802 Black Double Shot, since I never tried an Asian gel liner before.  They were even kind enough to put in three samples with my package.  If you order from them you will receive samples as gifts.  So say you order 1 product you get 2 samples.  You order three items you get two samples, a nose pack, and a mask pack.  They are at random of course, but its a great way into trying new products!  More information about the samples I received, later on in this post.

The box that the items were in was such a pretty color.  It was a golden like shade that reminded me of the nail polish from Milani - Signature Gold.  When I saw the package I instantly went "Oh...what is that!"  It is very eye catching and brightens your day a bit.  It is way better than seeing the typical cardboard boxes I get.

Nails: Tape it up!

So today's nails were based off of tape manis.  I have not done a tape mani for so long nor have I used my striping tape much.  So why not?
I decided to follow two tutorials from Nailside her laser, and and abstract 80's, but changed it to my liking.  She really does wonders when it comes to tape manicures!

Review: Eylure Naturalites 035

Today I have an item to show you from the company Eylure.  It's one of their Naturalites lashes in style 035.  Eylure's lashes are made of 100% human hair, and they are reusable and suitable for those who wear contact lenses.

Naturalites 035 adds natural volume to your lashes for a subtle full look.  If you are familiar to Eylure lashes, its a lighter version of the 080 lash style.


Review: Katy Perry Lashes by Eylure - Darling

Today I get to show you these wonderful Katy Perry Lashes by Eylure the Darling style.  They added two more styles to the Katy Perry line:  Darling and Pretty.  I always loved how Katy Perry's lashes were.  So it was great to hear that she came out with a line with Eylure.  Now you could be rockin' Katy Perry lashes at an ULTA, CVS, and Claire's Boutique near you!

Darling: Selected by Katy as a cute and wearable evening style. A dark, sculpted lash designed for easy eveningwear. An ideal event lash that will suit all eye shapes. - Eylure

On the back they give you tips and a step by step diagram on how to apply the lashes.  I find it very helpful when products supply directions on the outside package.  That way people who are buying the products have a better understanding of how to use it.

Review: Elegant Touch Polished Nails - Coral & Envy Wraps Bling - Candy Sprinkles

Today I get to show you two products from Elegant Touch:  Polished Nails in Coral, and Envy Wrap Bling in Candy Sprinkles.  I decided to combine these two together since I thought they would look good together.  Oh yup I was right!

Elegant Touch Envy Wraps Bling in Candy Sprinkles is a great way for someone to enhance those nails even more without dealing with the fuss of doing the nail art etc themselves.  Its a fast easy way to pretty nails.  The Envy Wraps Bling adds texture to your nails while taking them to another dimension.  They also come in Nail Armour, Gone Wild, and Leopard.  

The Elegant Touch Polished Nail set in Coral is a pre-polished set of nails with UV and Gel Top Coat Technology.  It ensures us that these bad boys won't chip, scratch, or fade away during the time you have it on.  This is very handy especially when you don't feel like going to the salon to get your nails done or your nails just look so OMG WTH looking and can't repair it on time for a party.  Have to cover up that mess, right?  They also come in Deep Blue, Misty Grey, and Warm Pink.

You could find Elegant Touch products at ULTA shops or their online website (US followers).


Nails done: Spun Sugar Mess Around

So I decided to mess around with the spun sugar look again.  I actually did them twice in one day cause I wasn't feeling the first look I did.  If you're curious how to do a spun sugar nails look you could check my tutorial section, or look up YouTube videos of it.

For the first look that I did I decided to try out the fan gradients, which I thought was pretty neat and interesting.  
  • Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color I Need a Refresh-mint
  • Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color Candy-licious
  • Wet n Wild Wild Shine Fashionista Lisa
But for some reason I just was not feeling it.  So I decided to do another spun sugar look.

My date day anniversary look!

Hello lovelies!  Today I am showing you a look that I did last Saturday for my date day with my love.  To make it more interesting it was our 10th anniversary of being married.  Yes I did get married young, but don't regret a thing.  I wasn't able to take pictures of places we went to and ate at.  I got to splurge a bit on goodies from shopping at some of my favorite shops.  Not to mention buy goodies for such a dear friend of mine.

Tutorial: Gradient Spun Sugar Nails

Several people have asked me how I did my gradient spun sugar nails, so I decided to write a tutorial about it.  I do not take credit for the spun sugar technique.  This is just my version of it.  You do not need to do a gradient if you do not want to.  You may skip to the spun sugar part of this tutorial.


Nails: Just splattering around

Yesterday I decided to do a splatter scene but combine it with some other nail art techniques.  I did two fingers with toothbrush splatter over a white base color, and the other two and thumb a straw splatter over a gem sponge marble technique.  You could find the tutorial here.

At first I attempted a spray paint splatter where you use a spray bottle and dilute some droplets of nail polish with thinner and spritz it on your nails, but I honestly had no patience.


Review: Ever Bilena Superlash Mascara - Blue

Today I am bringing you another review from the product Ever Bilena Cosmetics that I had received from my best friend's, Les, goodie package to me.  Ever Bilena is a popular brand in the Philippines that doesn't cost a lot.

I mentioned to her before that I wanted to try out colored mascara again.  She told me how a lot of people were using a blue mascara there that wasn't expensive at all.  So she picked me up Ever BIlena's Superlash Mascara Blue.    

I thought this wonderful how they have the mascara color shade as part of the tube design.  That way you don't have to look for the color name on the mascara tube, which honestly could be a hassle if you are in a hurry or you have some tubes that look the same.
