New Essence Kiss Care Love Lipbalms Review

Hey Everyone I hope you are all well.  
Ok its that time of year again where we are all feeling the colder weather creeping in slowly.  We are starting to notice little things like the nights are getting earlier, having to light the fire come 4 in the evening and also noticing the changes to our skin, nails and hair.  The fact they are becoming drier and and paler.  Well we will also notice the fact that we are using the heating and going out to the cold is most certainly going to dry out our lips so its that time to start stocking up on the lip balms, cream and cold sore stoppers.  
So today I will be reviewing the New Essence Kiss Care Love Lipbalms which are now in the permanent range.  
There is 4 colours to choose from and they cost 1.69 euro each for 4g of product.  
kiss and care in the city! the gentle texture of the lipbalm is moisturizing and pampering thanks to its premium castor oil ingredients. the highlight: these lipbalms have a refreshing fruity taste and guarantee a natural look with their subtle color-dispersion. available in four beautiful, trendy colors.
Ok the Packaging is a little bit on the cheap side as you will see by the last lip balm the writing is already wearing off and i only got these about a week ago but to be honest who is going to worry about the packaging if you are suffering with dry lips and need moisturising ASAP.  
Now the Balms itself is what we would be more interested in.  They each have a different shade  which is very very sheer and to be honest barely even noticeable on the lips but you can see a tiny tint of each  
Fruit Crush is my favourite to be honest because even the scent smells delish.  It reminds me of bubble gum i use to eat when i was a kiddie :) Now you can smell the scent but you cant taste it off you lips if that makes sense :) 
This give a nice rosey tint but i dont find it noticeable on the lips as i have pigmented lips as it is.  
Fruitylicious is a pretty baby pink that gives a slight frosty finish.  I am still finding it hard to pinpoint the scent but its fairly sweet not my favourite to be honest 
Caribbean Sunrise this gives a tiny bit of orangy tint the scent is somewhat like the second balm only less sweet.  
I have to say these lip balms surprised me i actually was very sceptic about them at first.  I was wrong to be...These lip balms are so soft and cream.  They apply like a dream.  They are so moisturising and i find they last a good 2 -3 hours before reapplying unless you drink or eat.  The glossy shine they give is incredible they give an amazing healthy glow to your lips they look kissable :) :)
My favourite is definately Fruit Crush because of the scent mmmmmm but they all do the same job which is keeping your lips moisturised so i am glad i have these for my winter stock and my kiddies love them too :) i will surely be buying some more for them for their school bags.  
Have you tried these yet?
Until next time 
Take care and mind yourselves :) 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Rimmel Scandal'eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner Review

Hey my beauties how are you all doing?
Todays review is about The New Rimmel Scandal'eyes Waterproof eyeliner pencils 
These eyeliners are just released and still not available in some countries.  There are 7 shades available according to Rimmels Facebook Page but there was only 3 shades of the 7 available in my local pharmacy.  The 7 shades are:
ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner is a fine tipped, crayon type pencil available in Purple, Bronze, Black, Silver and Bright Blue that glides on easily and precisely for a flawlessly beautiful defined line. ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner works great by applying one shade, or combining several shades to create a complete and striking eye look.

Benefits of ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner

  • Ultra Soft
  • Waterproof
  • Sweat proof
  • heat proof 
  • Lasts up to 10 hours 
Ensure all eyes are on you!  Create spectacular eye looks by drawing on precise lines of dramatic colour with new ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner. Get the London look.   By Rimmel 
Hmmmmm The question is......Does they do what they say they do !!!!!!! 
The Pencils remind me alot of the Avon Supershock Eyeliners in which are my utmost favourite eyeliners to stay on the waterline which led me to ask the question "will it beat my favourite eyeliner"  
So as i mentioned earlier i came across these in my local pharmacy and they were on an offer for 3.95 euro each WOWZER so i snatched the 3 without a second thought.  My usual Avon Supershock eyeliner costs me 12 euro most of the time.  
So the shades are basically what they are named 
The Black is Jet Black which i love and compared to my usually Avon supershock black liner its an exact match in pigmentation.  The Blackest of Black wahoo!!!! 
The Bronze is fantastic it has lovely gold shimmer which really stand out but not to the point you are out like a disco ball.  
The Purple oh i love it and its matte a great way to make my hazel eyes pop and so handy if you just wanted to add a pop of colour to your every day look :) 
As you can see the pencil itself is thick enough to last longer before you have to pair the pencil.  Now for the formula its is amazingly creamy.  You get instant pigmentation and a little goes a long long way.  You also have enough time to smudge this baby before it sets you have at least a good 30 + seconds which is just enough time.  Beautiful !!!! 
So now for the wonderful swatches :) 
Dont they look Beautiful :) :) 
So I know what you are all asking.....Do they actually work on the waterline.......Are they really Waterproof.....Do they smudge.....Do they last all day?????
I have even put them to the ultimate Water test for you to see 
I ran lukewarm water over these for a good 5 minutes to see if they would even melt a little (part of the sweat test also) and then i put them to the smudge test with my arm still been wet 
Not even a budge from the water or the smudge test.  These babies are staying put until you use your makeup remover.  It took a nice bit of scrubbing with a sponge and soap to take these off my arm after but the best thing is that they did not leave any stain lines.  So for ones who hate waterproof makeup because of that reason will like these because they do come off easily with makeup remover.  
I can not wait for the other shades to come I especially the "nude" as that will be a perfect shade for the waterline to open up your eyes.  
For 4 euro these are well well worth they money and i will surely be stocking up on them they are amazing and everyone should have them in their collection.  Especially for weepy days ;)
Hot days etc 
Have you tried these yet?
I really hope this review was helpful for you all 
Until Next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Benefit Bella Bamba Blush Review

Hey my Wonderful readers :) I hope you are all well :) 
Today I am Reviewing my first ever REAL Benefit Blush :) :) I know I know you are probably shocked that this is my first but to be honest with me been a bargain hunter I found it very hard to part with 30 something euro for 1 blush when i have so many really really good blushes that cost me 3 time less than that.  Now i bet you are wondering what i ment by REAL well i have got 5 Benefit blushes to my collection but they are fake (very good fakes might i add) so i feel even more excited that i finally have a real one to my collection.  Now i actually got this blush from a blogsale a few weeks ago and all i paid was between 7-10 euro for it and all the girl did was swatch it pretty good eh? 
I have been wanting to try this particular blush since it was released in Spring 2011
Would you look at the packaging :) Isn't it a sight for sore eyes.  Its so so girly and sparkly.  It has a 3D effect all over it I Love it.  It also has a new flip over lid to it which is alot handier that the old packaging which you had to take the lid off each time you use it.  Plus there is a mirror on the lid which Benefit never had with the older versions.  It comes with a little brush that can be handy for travel but to be honest when at home i prefer my own blush brush :) 
The mirror has a plastic covering over it thats why it looks cloudy :) 
In the Beauty Blogging world this blush has been compared to the Nars Orgasm blush and also a better version of the Benefit Coralista.  By the Looks of the swatches of both Bella Bamba looks more intense in colour than Coralista and sure does resemble Nars Orgasm actually Bella Bamba looks like it could be more on the pigmented side.  
So Benefit states 
Amplify cheekbones and create the illusion of sculpted features with this 3D watermelon blush. Laced with shimmering gold undertones, bella bamba takes eye-popping pretty to the third'll never use traditional blush again!
Oh Ladies I am in total AWWWWW Looking at this picture and so pleased i actually have this blush.  Its amazing.  You will see that this shade is a BEAUTIFUL Peachy Pink/watermelon Pink .  It has a beautiful gold sparkle....when i seen it first i thought oh no its shimmer I am going to look like a disco ball......but dont let the shimmer fool ye ladies :) 
This blush will certainly without a doubt suit every skin tone for sure!!!! Its extremely pigmented and a little goes a long long way.  Now there maybe a lot of shimmer in it but it works it really does.  It leave the most wonderful glow on your cheeks and instantly make you shine.  Awww im in love really i am but if you do not like shimmer all you have to do is apply lightly and even at that you are getting a beautiful pinky flush to the cheek :) 
I am even more excited about having this as its coming into the winter now and I can imagine myself out in the snow with my foundation lightly done Bella Bamba on my cheeks(for the nice pinky glowy look)  and a red nose (well we all get that in the snow lol) and red lips it will look beautiful.  Oh and i totally forgot about mentioning the scent oh wow i can not really pinpoint the actual scent but i can easily say it smells lightly fruity i love it :) 
Overall I think you can guess I LOVE IT!!! The scent, the shade, the application, the packaging everything I love and i Highly recommend it to everyone even ones who don't like shimmery blushes as this lightly applied looks more glowing than shimmer but of course if you go crazy with it you will look like a disco ball. 
Do you own any Benefit Blushes 
What is your favourite shade? 
Until Next Time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter

Catrice Made To Stay Longlasting Eyeshadow Collection

Hey my Beauties How are you all doing?
About a couple of weeks ago I went on a small shopping trip to get the last bits i needed for my kiddies for school and i could help but head over to one of my favourite stores Penney's 
When there at the checkout was the Catrice and Essence stand.  On both stands i could see the word "New" in lots of places and i thought oh my gosh i just have to :) 
So i came across 2 new shades of the Catrice Made to Stay Longlasting Eyeshadows.  They have been a favourite of mine since i first started buying Catrice.  I ended up just picking one as the other shade did not appeal to me.  When i got home I put it along side my other made to stay eyeshadow and then it just clicked "I have not reviewed these yet :O" 
I do have to laugh at myself sometimes as if i try something new 9 times out of 10 i always review them but when you get so used to using something and have it so long you tend to take it for granted like i really really should have reviewed these before now because i love them so much 
Anyways i am babbling sorry :) 
Elegant, shiny metallic cream eyeshadows that are long-lasting and convincing. Easy to apply, the intensively pigmented texture seems to melt on your eyelid without settling in the crease or smudging. All day and all night long.
Ctrice only recently got rid of 2 shades in these eyeshadows and bought in 2 new shades.  One of the shades that is discontinued is the 030 Star was Here but im sure you can still get it in some stores and probably even at a reduced price and i have one of the newest shade 070 Mauvie Star 
So the Packaging is one of the things i love about these.  They remind me a little of the Maybelline color tattoo.  The jar is glass and it comes with a plastic lid.  This certainly would fool people into thinking you paid more than 5 euro in which is all they cost in most place but you could get them even cheaper, plus you are getting 5g of product for that.   The only fault i have maybe with the jar is that its hard to get the product out the more you use it you would certain find it awkward to get your finger to pick up any product without picking up too much.  
So on with the shades i have so far :) 
020 Romans gone Bad:  This is my very first one that i bought and fell in love with (as you can tell by the messy pot sorry about that lol)  This shade is amazing both on its own or as a base for a smokey eye.  I love this shade as its all depending on the lighting but you will get a tint of grey, brown and gold even though i would explain this as a pewter :)  I tend to wear this on its own alot for everyday wear and when i run it lightly on my bottom lash line it looks like i have a different shade on depending on the lighting :) 
030 Star was here:  This is another great base for a dark smokey eye.  Its a dark grey with silver shimmer.  I have found that the shimmer in this is more noticeable.  I have found that this little beautiful is a little hard to work with if you apply too much in the one go it will tend to move about a little and become a nightmare to blend so what i would advise is to apply lightly and build up on it as it works alot better that way 
040 Lord of the Blings:  As from last month this shade has been discontinued but might still be available in some stores and for sure half price......This shade is more of a light taupe with silver shimmer even though it pays off as a champagne shade.  This is perfect for those days you need that extra boost to make you look wide away....Them days i wear all over the lid.  Other days i use this as a inner corner highlight in which works really well and then i sometimes use this as a base.  This too like "Star was here" needs to be built up but the shade is stunning i was actually surprised it was discontinued 
  050 Medall of Honor:  Now this certainly reminds me of the Maybelline "Bad to the Bronze" Color tattoo which is my favourite :) only this is a little darker.  This is a bronzy/brown shade with gold shimmer.  I absolutely love this shade as Maybelline "bad to the bronze" is so so popular this is one shade that will rock everyones boat especially when its half the price of the color tattoo.  I love this on its own, as a base or mised with other shades and i found it really makes my hazel eyes pop :) I highly recommend this shade 
070 Mauvie Star:  This is the newest shade to my collection and was only released last month.  I went with this shade as i love my purple shades.  This is a really pretty mauve purple with silver shimmer.  This is a very pretty elegant colour and would look so pretty with a little darker purple in the crease and a winged liner so elegant it would look lovely on a bride :) this is so easy to work it and so creamy i love it :) 
Ok to cut a long story short these eyeshadows are amazing.  They do exactly what it says on the pot.  I found they lasted all day on me no problems and i have even tested them on someone who has very oily lids and they lasted 6 hours before moving on their lids.  I then tested them on her lids with a primer and she said they lasted a solid 12 hours on her without creasing.  I would highly recommend these to everyone who doesn't mind metallic eyeshadows.  They look stunning on their own and are brilliant as a base.  
The fact there is only 6 shades to choose from is a downer :( I really hope Catrice brings out more shades.  You can apply these with your fingers or any eye brush they blend out really well and you have enough time to blend it out before it drys.  

Have you tried any of these eyeshadows?  What is your favourite one.  
Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter

MUA Lipstick in "Juicy" Review

Hey my beauties how are you all doing? The weather has been disgusting today.  I got soaked while i went and ran a few errings but i suppose its a good thing as I was able to test out 2 different mascara's (yes 2 different mascara's on each eye I love experimenting) to see if they are good in the rain.  Anyway's 
Today I am reviewing a lovely lipstick from MUA (Makeup Academy) that I purchased quite recently along with other items I couldnt help but buy hehehe,  its actually a new shade not long added to the list of 15 shade they already have :) 
I was quite excited to try this shade as I seen a few reviews already about it one been by the Lovely Dyna from Malta (Love this girl Hey Dyna baby How you doin' girlfriend) 
The Packaging is actually good the lid is very sturdy and you have no fear of loosing the lid off your lippie in your handbag.  You are getting 3.8g of product for only.........£1....yes £1 isnt that just amazing.  
Oh boy when i seen this shade in person without swatching I thought oh no its not going to suit me 
The shade is a lovely peachy coral.  When I swatched it on my hand I couldn't believe how pigmented it was.  
The lipstick is very very creamy somewhat like a balm and when applied to the lips it actually comes out sheer not too sheer but lighter than the swatch in the picture above.  But the best thing about this is you can build it to whatever strength you want.  The scent is sort of sweet not too sweet and of course fades after a short while.  I found this lipstick to last about 3 hours before i had to reapply a little shorter depending on eating and drink but to be honest thats to be expected for a £1 lipstick.  
I was very very surprised that this actually suited me really well :) Happy Days!!!!
Its a really cute everyday lipstick and quite moisturising too 
What i love the most about this is the name "Juicy" because when this is applied to your lips dang straight your lips will look "Juicy" lol.  
Overall i am very very pleased with both the lipstick and the shade.  This would love stunning on anyone of any skin tone 
Have you tried any of MUA's Lipsticks? What is your favourite shade :) 
Until Next 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter

MUA BB All in One Beauty Balm

Hey my beauties I hope you are all well :) 
Ok me and BB creams so far have not had a great relationship so far.  I only ever tried 2 BB creams in my life and both were very disappointing especially in the shade department as my face would come out look like one of Willy Wonka's oompa loompa's. 
In the summer though i was looking for something lighter than my foundation as even though the weather wasn't exactly our ideal summer, we did have days where the heat was nearly unbearable .  It would be clammy and heavy and not ideal for wearing foundation.  
So i was browsing the MUA Store one day and came across the BB cream and decided to give it a go as it did only cost £4.  I also remember coming across The Sunday Girls review about it and was chatting with her on twitter one day and she recommended that i try it.  
There was only 3 shades to choose from Light, Medium and Dark.  I went with medium as i thought Light would have been too light for me. 
I was very excited to try this out :) The packaging is a squeezable black tube which is small enough to carry in her travel/handbag.  You are getting 30 mls per tube for £4 which is reasonable for the price i have to say :) :) 
As i stated i got this in Medium as i am more Fair to medium and as i got a wee bit of colour in the summer (i don't know how) safely of course i was ranging more medium skin tone so i had everything crossed that this would not be too dark on me.  I would prefer it been a little too light than dark. 
So this is a swatch of it on my hand as you can see its a little lighter than my tanned hands but not too light.  This cream smells lovely it smells a little like moisturiser a very light scent.  
According to MUA this bb cream is supposed to prime, smooth and conceal.  Also as The Sunday Girl mentioned to me there is no SPF in it unlike some bb creams you get but hey that can be sorted with a little SPF of your own before hand.  
What I found with this while squeezing it out that it was like i had been using it for a while no product came out until i went 3/4 's way down the tube so just be cautious of that.  
In this photo you will see it blended out on my not so tanned (inside) arm :) you can see it does give a little colour to my poor pale arm.   
I mentioned before on facebook i sort of had a love/hate relationship with a particular product well this is the product. 
I first applied this bb cream on my face without a primer as i thought with it been quite thick and moisturising that i wouldn't need anything like that but i was wrong i was having a dry spell around the time i first tried it so i found it soaked into my dry lines and seem to highlight my dry patches around my mouth area.  
So the next time i applied it i applied my Catrice Prime and Fine Primer before and wow such a difference i loved the finish.  Apart from it been a little light for my i was pleased with how well it looked on my face.  With it been too light a little bronzer would sort that out.  
I found this extremely moisturising and feels really smooth on the skin.  If you are oily i will advise to have a compact or blotting paper with you throughout the day as it can get a little shiny after a few hours if you are oily.  I did find it a little greasier than a normal foundation i think that is why i wasn't sure about it at first but a little of this goes a long way and if you do use it lightly it doesn't look greasy.  

Does it conceal?  Yes i actually found this great to conceal my dark lids and dark circles like you could really get away with just wearing this and walking out the door without having to conceal anywhere.  I would have to say that this gives medium coverage for sure as it didn't entirely conceal my freckles but it did make them look less visible.  I also suffer with dark spots and this cream covered them up nicely.  I am going to show you a picture of just how much of a difference it makes with a before (oh god i hate the before pictures) and after pictures of the bb cream with a little bronzer all over does :) 
Over all i am very very pleased with MUA's BB cream and i would recommend it to everyone especially first time makeup wearers to try it out :) :) The best way to apply this is with your fingers i found.  I am now on my 2nd tube and this will be perfect for days I want to take a break from my foundation. 
You can buy online or in Superdrug 
So have you tried this BB's.  What's your Favourite BB Cream 
Until Next Time Take Care
Lots of Love Luck & Laughter

Essence TE Cherry Blossom Girl Review

Well hello there my beauties :) 
I hope you are all well.  1st of all can i just take this chance to say WELCOME to my latest new followers/friends thanks so much for clicking that follow button and I really hope you enjoy reading my blog xxxxxxxxxx and thanks so much to my current followers/friends for sticking around you guys are amazing and brilliant and i love you all so much for the comments and kinds words you give me all the time i am blessed to have you all in my life (ok mushy time over :)
As you know already I'm a sucker for Limited Editions and I love the way Essence & Catrice comes out with very regular limited editions.  
Its that time again for Essence and they have come out with The Cherry Blossom Girl Edition for Autumn 2012 :) 
konnichiwa asian beauty girls! in september 2012,essence whisks you away to the far east with the trend edition “cherry blossom girl”. the color theme of this trend edition unites soft cherry blossom shades with strong red, bright yellow and cool black. the absolute it-piece: elaborately designed paper eyelashes that create a fabulous asia-look with a true wow-effect when combined with expressive eyeliner, intense red lips and softly shimmering skin!
So when this edition arrived in my local pharmacy all i could see what bright shades and beautiful products to select from.  Like i said before i only went for the shades and the items i would use rather than get all and not use half of them but i got at least one or two shades of everything so apart from the shades the products will be the same at least.  
So starting off with 
Well I have to admit i have a special place in my heart for the Essence Quattro Eyeshadows.  They are super cheap and are amazingly pigmented not only that they are great for beginners because the shades in the quad all create a brilliant eye look.  There is only one of these available in the Limited edition called 01 Dreaming under a Cherry Tree
Doesnt it look so pretty.  
In this palette obviously there is 4 shades 
On the site its says you are getting a red but i dont see any red here 
you are getting a nice mix of peaches and oranges and also neutral shades :) :) 
These eyeshadows are really nice and creamy i found the lightest shade which is the 2nd from the top a little on the chalky side and is very light.  Apart from that this palette works well and you can build the colours up to what ever strength you desire.  
They are not shimmery but do give a lovely semi metallic finish :) 
You will need a primer underneath to make this last all day long other wise you will notice the shadows wearing off after 5 hours.  This is not as pigmented as some of the other quattro eyeshadows i have but i still like it :) 
Pretty isnt it :)  Awwww i just had to buy this little beauty just look at the shades :) :) 
The print of the cherry blossom is stunning see i have a thing for Cherry blossom tree's its my favourite tree in this whole world :) :) Its stunning to look at and if i had acres of land id have a huge walkway it cherry blossoms on each side the whole way down the walk way (oh im sorry i went a bit on the ahem dream land again :)
Your getting 2 stunning shades of peach one dark and one very light almost like a highlight shade :)  This is suppose to create a beautiful natural rosy glow and i have to say it certainly does 
The only thing i found with this blush is that it was very sheer to swatch but it is buildable.  When used together the colour is not as pigmented but i tend to go for the darker side for the blush and the lighter side for a highlight :)  I love this :) :) 
Lipstick Pencils these come in 2 shades and i decided on getting the 2 as i have to admit i had higher expectations for these than i care to admit :)  I was super excited about trying these in particular .   These are suppose to give a Matte velvet finish and a big must have according to essence.  
As you can see the packaging is pretty straight forward its a chubby pencil with a lid. (as i said pretty straight forward lol) 
Cherry Cherry Girl is a pretty vibrant coral shade 
It's Peach not Cherry is a peach with orange undertones 
Awww i was so so disappointed with these 2 which is a pity because they are so creamy, so pigmented and so easy to apply.  Their scent is also quite nice its a very faint vanilla scent which doesnt last too long on the lips.  
So why was i disappointed
Aww from the minute i applied these to my lips i hated them.  The lip product soaked into ever line on my lips.  It looked horrible on my lips (like the way oil hits water) it looked lumpy mucky ewwwwww.  So i thought hmmm maybe i need to exfoliate my lips and maybe apply a lip balm a good 10 minutes before.  Tried that and still no difference.  I even tried applying the lightest coat i could but it just wouldnt sit on my lips.  
I did very very best to get a good photo swatch of each on my lips to show you even what the shade is like for each but you will see that the colour even with lip balm under it soaked right into my lines 
The minute I had this photo taken i pressed my lips together and the lip product looked like a mess on my lips.  Not a bit impressed i know they only cost less than 2 euro and i wouldnt have minded if they only lasted an hour on my lips but the fact that you cant even apply them right to enjoy them even for an hour is a bit crazy 
so marks out of 10 .........a big fat O
Well now you all know i love essence nail polish the fact that they are under 2 euro each they are amazing for the price and have so many shades to choose from.  There are 4 shades to choose from in this Limited Edition.  I only chose 2 as i have so many polishes as it is and these 2 shades called out to me more.  
I was actually amazed by these nail polishes in particular.  I mean 2 thin coats and you are done.  The consistency is a little thicker than the permanent range which is brilliant as these polishes are going to last alot longer.  
The 2 shades i got was 
Cherry Cherry Girl which is a love coral with red undertones very bright and beautiful :) 
It's Peach not Cherry:  This is beautiful you are getting a lovely peach with an orangey undertone to it :) I have never owned any shade like this before and I am loving it :) 
One piece of advice especially to all of you Essences nail polish lovers.  Only apply light coats with these as it is thicker than the normal polishes from Essence but not hard to apply do not worry :) 
Next up is the Cherry Blossom Girl Highlighter Pen which according to Essence gives the area around your eyes the natural radiance of an asian beauty.
It comes in a sleek black plastic twistable pen with a little brush applicator.  Now one thing i noticed is you have to give it a good twist before any product comes out.  
The Product itself is actually quite thick so a little of this will go a long long way :) As you can see there is a little tint of pink and quite a bit of shimmer on it.  It blends out beautifully and feels really soft on the skin. 
I like to use this on top of my cheekbones, maybe a little under the brow and maybe a little on the inner corner or my eyes its very pretty and I'm glad I have it in my collection :) 
For less than 3 euro its definitely worth buying and trying 
If you are not one who likes shimmer on your face maybe leave this out but its not the type of shimmer that makes you look like a disco ball :) 
Cherry Blossom Girl 2 in 1 Eyeliner comes in 2 shades 
01 Big in Japan (Pictured above) 
02 My little Kimono  (which is a dark brown)
Ok i was quite excited to try this out as i did have a look at the felt tips before i bought it and they looked promising already.  
The thin part looked very skinny perfect for anyone who needs and extra hand to get their line right :) This is also perfect for starting of your line on the inner 3rd of your eye 
The thicker side is great for finishing off the line on the outter corner of the eye or if you are one who likes a good thick line this is the part for you.  You can still achieve a thin like with the thick part also which is an extra bonus 
This black is a good dark black and looks amazing.  Its a semi-permanent formula.  I found even after taking my makeup off i could still see it very faintly on my eyes.  This liner will be perfect for nights out or long days of makeup wearing :) 
After alot of scrubbing with body wash and makeup remover you can still see the very faint lines on the arm.  :) 

So thats it everyone thats what I got from the Cherry Blossom Collection.  Now i do know there is two other items i did not purchase from this collection 
1 been the Shimmering body powder which did look lovely but i would not used as i have enough at home and 2 the eyelashes they are paper lashes and something i probably would not end up using.  
Overall i am pleased with this Limited Edition If i have to choose with what I am most happy with it would have to be the blush and the eyeliner.  
Have you tried any of these yet :) 
Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
