Haul ❤ Hello Kitty Make up Brush - MAC Inspired

Hello ~ ❤

First and foremost apologies for the slow post this week . Im having my final year exam tomorrow ( TAT ) so I'm rushing studying for everything for the past few weeks. So today I'm just going to write about one of my recent haul  ❤  : a set of Hello Kitty brush in a Hello Kitty tin brush ( first and foremost apologies for the low resolution pics as I only have my phone camera with me recently ^^" ) 

Anyway ,I saw these and they were so cute I just couldnt resist ordering them !! I mean, these are freaking cute !!

Hello Kitty Brush Set 

This is how it looks like inside of the box  :) A set of 7 brushes with labels on the handles 
(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ The brushes included are :

 Face Brush
Foundation Brush
Eye Liner Brush
Eye Shades Sticker
Eye Shadow Brush
Shader Brush
Lip Brush

Apparently they're inspired from MAC's Hello Kitty brush set :3 the Tin is the one on the right below (the silver hello kitty shaped ones) , which is absolutely gorgeous ૮(ᶿ̴͈᷇ॢ௰ᶿ̴͈᷆ॢ)ა✧  I know the quality is of the inspired one is course probably totally diff from MAC's - actually the brush design itself is already not exactly the same - but honestly as a dirt poor intern ╭(๑¯д¯๑)╮ I cant afford that kind of thing so... for me these will do !! ヽ(=^・ω・^=)丿 - overruled by cuteness ٩(●˙▿˙●)۶…⋆ฺ

~ Le Original ~

With regards to the inspired brushes , what struck me most and taunted me to buy them is the ... pink gradation at the end of this brush 。゚( ゚இ‸இ゚)゚。.... ( being an ageing lady , I am ashamed that I still cant control my impulse-buy tendency with regards to cute things ) When the brush arrived , I have to say I'm surprised that the hair is actually quite soft  ヾ(。◕ฺ3◕ฺ)ノ 
You definitely can NOT compare this to animal-fur brushes which were retailing in Japan at 60-$150++ per brush , but seriously for a brush SET which I bought for $8 ... I dont have much regret  ٩(●˙▿˙●)۶…⋆ฺ 

pink softness ~ 

Here are the rest of the brushes !
 Most of the brushes inside have white-creme-pink gradations except for one brush !!
The tip of the eye shadow stick ( the one on extreme left side ) is roughly a heart shaped sponge with peach colour on one side and white colour on the other side as you can see 

And for the one brush with creme-brown gradation, it is the foundation brush . Although since this is a foundation brush I guess when you use it with foundation creams , powder or BB creams it will turn creme-beige in the end and so even if it started off pink it wont show it in the end (╯︵╰,) so its allright for me :3  unless you planned to use it exclusively for brightening mousse or pink cc creams o(〃^▽^〃)o

Anyway , here are some nicer pictures I found from some eBay shops selling the exact same set of Hello Kitty brush :) 

Conclusion ~ Conclusion ~
Quite happy with my haul this time around ^^ I was afraid the brush will be rough and wont be functional and the brushes will just look cute. However , it turned out that the brushes are actually quite soft and nice to use. The compact size means you can easily carry them around too :3 Sadly, only the blusher brush comes with a thick plastic covering .・゜゜・(/。\)・゜゜・.   The rest comes in the crackly plastic covering which is easily torn ... But I guess the metal tin kinda made up for it though cause I saw some online shops selling ones without the tin at about $7-$12  (。◕ฺ3◕ฺ)  Anyway this end my rant for today  ~ Will post sth longer in 1  to 2 weeks time after my exams are done ~~~

and see you again next post ;D !

False Lashes <つけま> Review ❤ Dolly Wink No. 12 ❤ Feminine Girl~ ❤

Hello ~
I've had this set of tsukema on my stash for really quite a while now and I havent really worn it out so I've decided to wear it out recently and write a review about it :D ! I know there's been alot of new DW lashes recently and I've actually gotten them but my schedule is so bad to the extent that I've not tried many of them ^^"" hahaha.... wishing for that CNY break (please come !!!!) so I can post more about my recent apparels shopping haul  and try out all of those lashes T__T 


So this week's review will be about : 

Dolly Wink No 21 ❤  Secret Girl

The package details

❤  close up ❤ 

And here's how it looks like :

and here's my review :

❤ Design
The criss cross design is definitely not something natural :P I guess this will not be my choice of lower lash most of the time when Im going out. However, it does stand out when you want to wear something different and it does achieve the purpose as a lower lash and it fits pretty well with its counterpart : Dolly Wink No. 9 :3 

❤ Comfort 
Super comfy like most DW lenses are ;D

❤ Quality
Good :3 if you clean it regularly , treat it with care and store it properly you can even re use it for quite a while :3 

❤ Overall
Yepp :3 I guess this is something which I'll buy to try and because Im curious. 2 pairs in a box can easily last quite a while for me since I wont wear it quite often and overall its a good pair of lashes with a unique design although its not a natural looking design ;3 

Will it buy it again ? Only when my pair got damaged - and I'll be in no rush for that too :P 

That's all for today ~
