 It's always a happy day when I get a Kawaii Box in the mail! I just love getting this sweet and fun box and ripping it open to see what pretty goodies it has. Let's see what's in my most current one!! and make sure to read all the way to the end of my could win one of these boxes in our giveaway. Whoo!

So many cute things! Let's start off with the cutest of the whole bunch!!
The Nemuneko Plushie! How adorable is it? Look at that sweet face & its cute little pink ears. Awww......

A cute ghost pop mirror! perfect to put in your purse for lipstick touch ups.

There was a pin inside my Kawaii Box! A Harajuki Ichigo Badge! I LOVE it!
Sweet cupcakes, rainbows and Ichigo too! 

A PINK Bow hair clip! So sweet!! 

This may be my favorite of all in my Kawaii Box. It's a Pen shaped like a Pocky Stick.
Loved the packaging with the little red polka dot bow.

So effing cute, right?

Can you believe these are ERASERS? Korean Meal Eraser Set. 
SO DETAILED! and utterly adorable. 

OMG, I want to put these heart stickers on EVERYTHING!! and they're fluffy & plush!! I love touching them. heehee... Such pretty pastel colors too.

These are Twinkle Deco Jewels...again...I want to put them on everything! 
Sparkle, sparkle!! SO PRETTY. 

This sweet bunny is a phone ring holder and stand. Look at that little face. 

Candy time! A sweet Disney Popcan Grape Lollipop shaped like Mickey Mouse!

I love these little DIY candy kits. This is the Kracie Popin' Cookin' Colorful Ramune Land Kit. It made candy that tasted like soda pop. 

It came with a candy mold in cute little shapes, spoon and a measuring cup for the water and three packets of the candy dry mixture that comes in red, blue and yellow. You just add one little cup of water to each bag and mix. Here they are below all mixed up. 

You can even mix the colors together. Here's a closeup of the mold, mixing cup and a tiny little bowl to mix the colors in. You just cut the bowl and measuring cup off to use. You take the mixtures and push them into the mold or mix for instance the blue and yellow together to get green and push them into the mold. They pop out perfectly. 

Here are the finished candies! They taste just like soda pop. I loved the little pineapples the best. They're sooo cute!!

Here's a palm tree! You can see I mixed blue & yellow together to get the green I used for the palms on top. Haha, so fun!

Here's the sweet blue penguin I made. They were quite tasty. Yum yum!

A cute little closeup of my Nemuneko Plushie again just cause it's sooo adorable. What did you think? Sweetness is just exploding from my Kawaii Box, right? Ready for a giveaway? Want one for yourself? I bet you do. *wink* Just enter below. Open Internationally. Best of luck pretty peeps!!

I'm pretty darn excited about spring!! Bring on the pastels, florals and gingham pretties!!
My first spring post is from StyleWe....with some of my currant favs. Anything blue gingham...I just want to buy Gingham all the time! I've noticed that floral embroidery seems to be pretty popular. Isn't that rose blouse just perfect?!! And mint pastels...I'll always say oui! That pretty mint sweater top even has a heart cutout!!!! 

And those last three woman's party dresses...such pretty pretty floral patterns. I adore the neckline area on 5.) and the color combo on 6.)....sooooo dreamy!!!! You need to visit their website! Our pretty glitter polishes would work so well with these outfits too and if you're getting married they have a lot of pretty dresses you can choose from to go with your ring whether you have diamonds or non-diamond engagement rings!! Which one of these are your favorite? Do you love pastels, gingham and florals?

Velvet!!! Don't you just adore it?!! I'm utterly in love with my two newest velvet beauties...this gorgeous pink velvet bodysuit  I got from Forever 21 and the ultra cute velvet booties from ASOS. Ugh, they're so perfect. Don't you just love fashion? Fashion just makes me soooo happy!! 

 ♫ Selena Gomez - Who Says 

You might not know this about me but I never used to wear pretty fashions like I do now. In fact, I only just started wearing these beautiful outfits a few years ago. All my life, I've had terrible body image issues and just wasn't happy with how I looked. I was 30 lbs over weight and not very healthy I might add. I never felt comfortable with my body and therefore couldn't be enthusiastic about fashion like I am now because I just couldn't wear the outfits I wanted. It was awful. 

All I wanted to do was wear baggy pants and sweatshirts to hide myself away. I never even wore dresses, if you can believe that! It was an awful feeling not to be able to express my personality through my clothes...but a few years ago I finally had a eureka moment and figured out how to drop that weight and get healthy. It was amazing! The moment I could buy the clothes I had been dreaming about since I was a little girl was like the heavens opening was the most awesome feeling to accomplish one of my goals that I had had since I was 12 and now I can be free to express myself and be happy & healthy. 

I get so exited when I find something online that I want to buy, a dress, a pair of pretty heels, anything velvet!!, I just want to share it with the world. It's one of the few things in my life that makes me sooo enthusiastically happy. It's not something I'll ever give love of fashion and being able to express myself through it. I guess I'm saying don't ever let anything or anyone dull your sparkle. Wear what you you and have so much fun you can't stop smiling!!  

What's your favorite thing about fashion that allows you to be uniquely you? 

That adorable Glico Popcan Disney Lollipop came from my Kawaii Box! Which I'll be doing up a review on my latest one and a giveaway next! Stay tuned peeps!!  

Ugh, those booties!!!!! SOOO fabulous!! 

So happy to have a flat iron again!!  You have NO Idea how frizzy my hair can get and uncontrollable without one. it was a nightmare. I'm thinking of doing up a review on the ones I got but first I'm waiting for another one to come in so I can review it too! It's so lovely being a blogger and being able to discover new awesome products.

Happy New Year babes!! I hope your New Year is starting off wonderful. My New Year's seems to be having an 80's theme so far from my dress which reminds me of a shorter version of Elvira Hancock's dress in the movie "Scarface" played by the utterly gorgeous Michelle Pfeiffer to the music I've been listening to lately. Go follow me up on Facebook to check that out. *wink*  I'm always listening to music and will inevitably post it up to my facebook and twitter. 

♫  Scarface Soundtrack 

I absolutely adore this dress from Tobi...from the brilliant red color to the gorgeous neckline, the delicate straps and don't you just love the flared out skirt?

I always keep my makeup simple with a vibrant pop of lipstick. This is our "Lover Boy" The Virgin Liquid Lipstick...a gorgeous blood red which you can get in my shop!!  Perfect for Valentine's coming up! Of course, I usually keep it simple because every time I attempt to do my eye makeup I look like a four year old did it. lol...Thank goodness, I'm obsessed with lipstick. *dimple*

I'm also wearing my StudioGear Prime Objective Primer and Nars Radiant Tinted LOVE with these two products!! That Nars Tinted Moisturizer really gives me an amazing glow to my skin and the primer...makes my skin look flawless! You can see my previous post where I reviewed both products & you can get a discount code on the Studio Gear Primer! Yay! *dimple*

Long pink sparkly nails to go with my red hot dress. I just love the pretty pink heart ring I accessorized my outfit with. It's soooo cute!! And my vintage inspired rhinestone bow necklace.

I made a little New Years rainbow sugar cookies!! They were sooo good!!

My Nails. Pink. Sparkly. Glittery. Pure Loveliness. I used a pink pastel nail polish (I'm sure I'll be brainstorming how to mix up our own for our new nail polishes!)....and added a layer of our BRAND NEW!!! Margarita Bloom nail polishes in our Valentines Collection "The Lonely Hearts Club" in "The Daydreamer" a gorgeous sparkly iridescent holographic glitter nail polish. And then added some of our "Unicorn Tears" Iridescent Star Glitter on top finishing with a top coat or two of Seche Vite. Sparkle on babe.

REVIEW ♥ Studio Gear's Prime Objective Face Primer ♥

Monday, December 19, 2016

I have a secret to tell you. Even though I love makeup...I've never really used a lot of it! My main obsession has always been lipsticks. Oh, with all the delicious array of colors to choose from they've blinded me a bit to other makeup products so that's why I'm about to tell you a secret. I've never used a makeup primer before...and OMG, why haven't I used a makeup primer before?!! It boggles my mind to think about what I've been missing out on. The finish of my makeup is a bazillion times better when using a primer and I owe this revelation to the fabulous makeup brand Studio Gear. I've reviewed some of their wonderful lipsticks before & so when I saw a chance to review another one of their products I took it. 

This review is about Studio Gear's Prime Objective Skin Perfecting Face Primer. The very first face primer I've ever used and it is awesome. First let's look at the packaging. I love all the white. So chic! The bottle comes in a white box with the Studio Gear logo. It's simple, but sooo pretty to look at. The bottle is a pump treatment bottle and slightly transparent just like the look of the primer itself and has some nice font typography. I do love me some font typography...especially since I design all of my own beauty labels. 

The back says that it's Prime Objective....get it...Prime Objective! is to.."...retouch or visually diminish imperfections in the surface texture of the skin. It contains a sustained release liposome system with retinol that can help promote cell turnover and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a milk protein complex that can help to balance and protect the skin against environmental stresses. The "skin perfecting" effect of this state-of-the-art formula is further enhanced with optical diffusers. Apply after moisturizing all over the face avoiding eyelids."

Pretty good stuff and I can attest to that. Without even any makeup on I can see a difference in my skin! It appears to slightly blur my skin almost like an Instagram filter!  Way cool.  It comes out like a gel with a slightly transparent look to it and a velvety feel when you apply it to your face. It's fragrance free and is silicone based. Make sure to avoid the eyelids as instructed. I even tried some out on the back of my hand and you could soooo totally see a difference in that my skin looked blurred and more "perfect" Man, do they have this in a bigger bottle for the whole body?!! Haha!! Gimme!

Now, for the other products I used to complete my makeup look on top of the Studio Gear Prime Objective Primer. My skin type is combination. I have a really oily t-zone and the rest of my face is normal to dry which is why I like to use a tinted moisturizer for my makeup as it keeps my skin very moisturized so I haven't had that dry, tight feeling for a very long time. I've been using Sonia Kashuks Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF15 in Fair for the longest time and decided I wanted to try something different. Be adventurous! heehee... 

Sooooo.....I decided to try another Sonia Kashuk product. I figured I liked their Radiant Tinted Moisturizer so much it had to be good. I got their Perfecting Luminous Foundation in 02 Vanilla which is a medium coverage. Um, I did not like it at all. It had a tacky dragging feel to it that I did not like and it made my pores look extremely large, the coverage didn't seem to be all that great and the "luminous" glow was more of an "oily" glow. Ew.... to be honest with you I was going to throw it away but as luck would have it I had gotten the Studio Gear primer in the mail that day & decided to try it with that Sonia Kashuks Perfecting Luminous Foundation since I didn't have any other makeup. I was really impressed. The Studio Gear Prime Objective Primer made the foundation totally bearable to wear. The "oily" look was greatly lessened and my pores looked a lot better. So I'll finish the bottle of the Sonia Kashuks Perfecting Luminous Foundation as long as I have the primer to use with it but I definitely will not be getting that foundation again.

Now, I also got a sample of another tinted moisturizer I wanted to try out. That's that little unlabeled bottle in the photo below. It's a sample size of the Nars SPF 30 Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska. It's totally the wrong color for my skin. The color Alaska has a yellow undertone to it and I think their Groenfeld would have been better because it has a pink tone to it but they didn't have a sample of that color and I really wanted to try it out before getting a larger size especially since I had bought the full size Sonia Kashuk foundation and been disappointed. 

Whoa, no disappointment here just like with the Studio Gear primer I'm in love! The Nars Tinted Moisturizer is sooooooo extremely moisturizing I can't even believe it. It makes my skin GLOW like a Moon Goddess and has an amazing coverage for a tinted moisturizer. In fact, it almost covers up my translucent under eye area. I mean, it's my one area on my face I can't translucent my skin is there. My skin is probably a vampire's dream come true's sooo transparent you can see my veins. hahaha....  I sometimes wish I had perfect porcelain or peaches and cream skin, but alas nope it's very transparent. The smell is also sooo lovely! Like walking through a citrus grove and the wind gently wafting the sweet smell of oranges under your nose. Sooo nice. And it looks phenomenal on top of the Studio Gear Primer. Like I said...Moon Goddess worthy. 

I used two other products, a concealer called Skin Food Salmon Cream Concealer in #1 which really brightens, moisturizes and almost provides a complete coverage of my under eye area. It's still not quite completely covered up. I fear I may have to try a full coverage foundation but I'm afraid it will be heavy and cakey. *sad pout*  And for a blush my Etude House Cupcake All Over Color in Blueberry. Ha, you can see I've been using that for quite a bit by the photo. I love it even though it doesn't last all day and has to be reapplied. It's such a pretty color and reminds me of Snow White's rosy cheeks and it was only $5 so. *wink* 

With all of those products used by the time I got done applying everything my skin looked amazing, so dewy soft and glowy like a Moon Goddess with the Nars Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 being used with the Studio Gear Primer, Skin Food Salmon Concealer and a touch of Snow White Rosy cheeks with the Etude House Color. I even put a bit of the Luminous Foundation over the Nars Moisturizer to even out that yellow tone and it looks quite lovely. 

I highly suggest you try out the Studio Gear Prime Objective Primer....I know I'm going to be purchasing it when I run out. Ah, the curse and joys of being a beauty blogger...when you get to try out a product and fall head over heels in love with it you need it no matter what!
