I thought that we could kick off the week with a bumper edition of my speedy dash around what’s good and bad in my beauty box.
I really think that my eyes are getting lighter, or perhaps it is just the lighting for they look very dark today.
This EOTD was taken from my outing that you can view here.
I wanted to quickly spill the beans on the bits that I used:
NARS Rajasthan Duo Eyeshadow
I grabbed mine from SpaceNK but you can find it online from the NARS.co.uk or even Liberty. I just love this and would recommend it to anyone looking for a neutral smokey mix eyeshadow. Excellently pigmented, easy to work with and lasts. There are a zillion more in depth reviews of this on-line if you are interested.
The top swatch is the Dollywink, it is marginally more of a fine liner. The bottom is the K-Palette which is a smidgen darker but not obviously so. The K-Palette is waterproof and thus lasts longer than the Dollywink. I bought these both in Tokyo but you can get hold of them at Mihoko, Ichibankao or A Pop of Kawaii.
National Matsugekurun Heat Lash Curler
I have poker straight lashes. While in Japan my friends girlfriend recommended that I gave this a go. She was very specific it HAD to be a National curler. As her make up was beyond perfect I took heed and I am pleased to report that although they do take some getting used to, they do work well! Be warned though, these are not something that one can use when in a rush.
Take a look at this in depth review for more info on a similar thing.
HR Lash Queen Mascara
Another Tokyo bought item. I grabbed this at Narita Duty Free. I am pretty chuffed with it’s performance and glad that it works well with the lash curler. I probably would not repurchase simply because it is so hard to get hold of here and I honestly prefer YSL Faux Cils.
Love Clover BB Cream Foundation
This is my new BB of choice since my return to UK. It contains SPF30 and provides medium coverage with a lovely soft focus and dewy finish. This comes in 2 shades and I use the darker one. I would definitely buy this again. If you are curious as to what it looks like on, take a look here. I have spotted this at A Pop of Kawaii or Ichibankao
Misa Toxic Seduction
If you have not tried Misa nail varnishes then I must tell you that you are missing out on a good thing! They have some excellent colours to pick from and they last and last and LAST.
I think that is is a wonderful shade of enchanting green. Staring at it is like (if you have a rampant imagination and the time for such musings) looking into a deep enchanted forest. This is my current fave polish.
One week later:
Yes there is some wear but minimal chips.
I buy Misa on ebay at the reasonable price from the seller “Nails Supply U.K”
~*~ Babu Bath Tablets
Babu are my favourite fizzing bath tablets. They are cheap as chips and found in supermarkets or pharmacies or such and come in a host of fragrances, many of which are seasonal. This Hinoki (Japanese cypress) one have to be one of my all time favourites. I hear that the ebay seller “alphabeautyuk” stocks these.
Wowee I think I have out done myself this time!
I have sped my way over 8 different products.
I hope you have found this a little useful.
