Favorite gyaru-ish styles

So I'm not a complete gyaru fan. I just the fashions that are bendable with new york fashions and the make-up. So here are my yes yes and no nos if the day.

overdone accessorized nails in my opinion are a no. They are impractical. Especially if you type alot or work and makes everything a chore.

Moderate design are still flashy but your can still do stuff with them on.

For now I oppose circle lens because of 2 reasons. The FDA hasn't approved of it which is bad for me because I have very bad eyesight and I don't want to ruin my eyesight and it's hard to come by in the U.S. So I'll stick to my own beautiful eyes for now. And I also don't usually do lower lashes because I haven't had the chance to really test it out.  I will try it when I get my new pack of lashes in the mail. So far I am fine with my lashes and mascara

I really love the outfits. I really do but in New York they have to be an inch or so longer to not be considered slut wear. So these are no-nos

In New York all gyaru clothing must be paired with leggings or skinny jeans. Which isn't bad because you can always use fishnets with the design in them.  Shorts have to midclalf to not be sluttish the only time short-shorts are excusable is when it's really hot. New Yorkers really don't the difference between hot and slutty smh. 

So that's basically stuff I would wear.  Everyone's style is different so no judging

Pro 96 Eyeshadow Palette Review

So I bought this two shades  little pot or whatever for about $3 on ebay from tomjerry1984. I loved it because not only was it very pigmented it had the bonus of being very creamy in texture. So I fell in love with it and I decided I would buy again from that seller. This time I wanted a palette. But everyone was talking about the cheap 120 palette. At the time I wanted a Sephora Endless Color Blockbuster  and  it didn't have the colors I wanted so I was like let me take a shot at this just in case it's a bad buy. So far I'm impressed.  

Sorry for the crappy quality

Okay it's no mac and doesn't have a a black in this one. I am dark skin so I bought a beige liquid foundation for a dollar to use as a base. As far as I can tell while using the foundation it is very pigmented. Especially the dark colors of course. The brighter color must be masked on.  The size of the  colors however are about the size of a dime 

So  my verdict is;
Buy only if you don't wear make up daily
Never spend  more than $15 USD on it. It's is worth the wait I paid only $11 on mine.  Never spend $20 on it, if that's the case buy the 120 palette which most US sellers sell for $20.
My opinion was I just wanted to be cautious before going all out on the 120 palette. This was still a good buy in my opinion.  I personally can't wait for all the combos I'll make.

Be sure to watch out for my video review I will make when I have time.

So I don't know what came first

So  I definitely fell in love with Gothic Lolita first. I still love it but not as much as I did in middle school. I always love time-period fashion. It's one of my aesthetics when it comes to designing.  So I was always on egl looking at pictures of people who fell in love with that fashion. But a tragic flaw of gothic lolita it didn't have a full effect to me. I once read a book called Japanese School Girl Inferno and from there I left Gothic Lolita for Gyaru. Well technically I never left it because I never wore to begin with but you get my gist.  Either way my oh so popular sister thought I was a weirdo for liking this stuff and  an asian pretender. Reality is my eyes are very asian like and if you look closely one of my eyes are taipered.   Maybe the thing is the magic surrounding gyarus. With a little work they look fabulous  and if you've seen the before and afters  they look stunning!!!!  So I was like I had to go with them. I have a bit of a plain face so I naturally loved it.

Somewhere among the lines we meet Xiaxue. Before? After? Who knows and I really don't care. So I use to watch her clicknetwork show because I liked how she put on falsies and did her makeup (sorry you sour pusses who want to do their make-up all fancy like with brushes and crud) And lets face it, Wendy knows how to make people laugh. So the first time today I read her blog and I was like I could do that and beat her at her own game. So I went back and took a look at my old blog that was gathering dust. I deleted everything and now here we are ....  Another blogger you really don't care about
