Pop Beauty Petal Jam Lip Balm Review & Tarina Tarantino Skull Bracelet

I got a Tarina Tarantino skull bracelet and I love it alot! I still think it is overpriced for what it is but it's really cute and I love how the pink eyes glow/sparkle in the evening. It's comfortable and fits my tiny wrist perfectly.

On to the lip balm by Pop Beauty in "Budding Berry". It resembles jam in a jar which appeals to me as I like the idea of jam on my lips haha. It smells jammy/candyish too. I found the smell kinda annoyingly sweet in the store but at home it's very nice. It's clear, shiny, and mousturizing on lips. It looks like I am wearing clear lipgloss. It also tastes sweet and I like how the smell lingers for a while while on your lips. It contains Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Vitamin E and it says you can also use it on cuticles and elbows, although I intend on using it mostly on my lips.

Budding Berry the only balm out of the three that actually looks/smells like jam in the pot.

The screw on top took alot of force for me to open and right away and you see a chunky/fluffy texture that looks edible. You don't have to scrape the top to get it out as you do with alot of balms. The other lighter pink jam texture was alot more hard so it took more force to get it out.

I love the Beach!

I went to the beach and my sister to the Lost Lagoon here in Vancouver and took a bunch of pics. The ocean looked dreamy. It was fun being in nature, wish I had more time to do it.

I love the beach ♥ ♥ ♥

I wore the new Undercurrent pearlglide liner. I love it! Such a pretty teal with gold sparkles. I wore birds & berries and prim & proper with shell pearl again! haha I can't seem to stop wearing this combo.

Nibbler Photos + Tokidoki Kabuki Review

Usually I love shooting my bird Bluey because she's very comfortable in front of the camera. Nibbler is getting used to the camera still but I managed to get a really good headshot. My other bird Princey is crazy! He was running back and forth on the window sill like he was going to get shot. We names him Nibbler because he kept nibbling on all these papers and my fingers when we brought him home.

Nibbler looking Smug. hehe

Tokidoki Face Brush! I got 2 for myself and my friends b-day.

I wasn't excited about this collection coming out in Sephora or anything. The design and packaging doesn't appeal to me but I did really like this face brush. Somehow, I keep eyeing kabukis lately. Perhaps because I am too lazy to clean my face brushes so I want to buy new ones! haha I know it's ridiculous. The brush is very soft on your face and you got to love the purple tips although I am not sure how the color will hold up after a few washings. It didn't shed at all when I used it. The brush is pretty big and I think it would be best for all over face powders or bronzers as it doesn't deposit too much color right away. It's not tightly packed together like the MAC #182 or the MUFE kabuki so it deposits colour sparingly and kind of takes up your whole face. It wouldn't be good for applying blush but you can blend the blush out. The other stuff from the collection looked kinda cheap and kiddie like. The characters are cute. However, I didn't like the packaging at all for the other stuff especially for the eye-shadows which very very big and the colors weren't anything unique. I swatched some pencils and they didn't glide on very smoothly. I was in a rush to my friends b-day so I didn't have time to test out the other stuff.

Nibbler trying to bite my camera. hehe

Alice in Wonderland Inspirations

I love looking at artists interpretations of Alice. Here are some interesing photos I found.

The famous fat boys are rather slim here.

This reminds me of Avatar.

Love the horrific theme of Alice!

Alice as a mental patient comic book-style. I love the idea but I am just not a fan of comic style.

I don't know where this Alice statue is but they should build one in every city! hehe
