MAC lipstick swatches: Morange, Impassioned, Girl about town

Hello darlings.

Intense lip color! :D I love it and don`t wear it as often as I`d like too... I think it`s because it requires high maintenance - you have to check your lips often and reapply or add some balm or gloss - when you use a color this strong, it has to look perfect! :D And when I work (oh yeah, I even wear such colors to work, do you know Anime lip tar? I went to my office work in that, lol) I have to speak a lot (all the time), so I eat the lipstick away.... Anyway! What am I talking about here anyway...


I`ll be showing and comparing the amplified finish lipsticks from MAC: Morange, Impassioned, Girl about town! Impassioned belongs to my friend, but it`s so nice I`m considering getting it myself. Also it`s very similar to Girl about town, so if you want hot pink with less fuchsia, a bit warmed tone, go for Impassioned! :D

MAC describes the colors as Loudmouth Orange (Morange), Fabulous Fuchsia (Girl about town) and Amped-up Fuchsia (Impassioned).

Swatches in shadow, no flash. Morange / Impassioned / Girl about town

Half shadow, half in sunlight (oh yes, we have sunny days in Poland this winter :D).
The lipsticks are creamy and a bit shiny~ Amplified finish is so good.

In sunlight!

I can`t choose my favorite, they are all amazing lipsticks! Which color is your favorite? :D

MAC Casino eyeshadow GET! (swatches and eotd)

Hellooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! \( 〇 ⌒   ▽   ⌒ 〇 )/わぁい♪ 
Long time no see! ( T_T)人(T_T ) ヒサシブリダ OMG, I am sorry to leave this blog without updates for such long time, but hpefully I can get back on track now. I`ve been going through some very hard times and changes, but I`ve done a lot of growing and am doing fine now... I can`t wait for Xmas, mostly because of the xmassy atmoshepre and illuminations - I want to decorate my apartment with all sorts of xmas lights and candles~

Today I`d love to share my latest GET! MAC`s Casino eyeshadow!!! v(≧∇≦)v イェェ~イ♪  I am really excited about it, because Momoko Ogihara is a heavy user of that eyeshadow and as you know, I am easily influenced by japanese gyaru-related celebrities` choices. And to be honest, following Matsumoto Ena`s, Yamamoto Yuuki`s and Ogihara Momoko`s makeup advice worked very well for me.

The eyeshadow is a copperish dark gold kind of color and it is a bit of a GLITTER BOMB! XD But I like glittery eyeshadows, so that`s not a problem. I would recommend to be careful about fallout though, covering your cheeks makes application less messy.

Swatch on skin. The finish of this one is LUSTRE, so it`s rather sheer, but it can build up to a really nice coverage, especially on an eyeshadow base, so don`t worry. You can wear it sheer or more opaque.

And here it is on my face, I used a little bit of Woodwinked eyeshadow around the outer corners of my eyes, but it`s mostly Casino. I love it! v(≧∇≦)v イェェ~イ♪ I had to buy it online though, as it is a some kind of limited edition eyeshadow - sth like Asia only? But I`m not sure. Either way it`s not available at MAC stores in Poland.

I hope to update more regularly from now on and I hope I still have some readers left!! LOL! 
Hugs & have a good day~ ヾ( ̄◇ ̄)ノ)) バイバイ

EOTD: Golden & Purple party makeup with fake lashes!

Hello my dears!
I've been up to well... nothing lately to be honest and my internet connection is really bad, so I couldn't post too. ;D But recently I had some fun with makeup, as I wanted to come up with makeup with Diamond Lash - Princess bottom lashes, which I found very hard o use at first, but I think now I got a hang of it and will post a review soon.

HOW TO: All the eye shadows I used are listed in the photo and accidentally I used only MAC eye shadows. How I did it, I put All that glitters all over my eyelid top and bottom, all the way to the brows on top, they lined my eyes with MUFE eye pencil, thick heavy lines. Then I just worked the eye shadows, from darkest to lightest, using Carbon first, to go over the eyeliner and spread it out and soften it, then I added Tempting and blended it, then on top of that moving upward to my brows I used all the other shadows from darker to lightest. I used Phloof! and highlight, under brows and inner eye corner. Bottom lid was just eyeliner and Carbon eye shadow, but then I decided to add more spunk to it and applied MAC My dark magic eye shadow (both colors) on top of the black, to add purple sparkle. Finally I added fake lashes, Diamond Lash Gorgeous on top and Princess on bottom. I found out that the best way to glue on princess bottom lashes is to cut them up into 3 pieces, and glue them all separately. It makes positioning them sooooo much easier! I also wore Princess Mimi Apple Green circle lens, to really make my eyes look big and dramatic! :D

I hope you like the look and try to copy it!
v(*’-^*)-☆ Hugs! (=゜ω゜)人(゜ω゜=)

日焼け止め ~②~ Sunscreen and UVA/UVB protection ~②~

Hello my dears!
Please click I LIKE on my FACEBOOK page. Why? I dunno! Do me a favor! XD
Are you using sunscreen this summer...? *frown* I hope you are! ;D I got myself 3 products this year. I already introduced 2 in another post, HERE

Here are the 3 sun protectors that I currently have & use:
1. 美白 UV プロテクター / Shiseido Anessa Whitening UV Protector (60ml)  from, SPF32・PA+++
2. パーフェクトパーリーサンスクリーンAA / Shiseido Anessa Perfect Pearly Sunscreen AA (25ml) from, SPF50+・PA+++
3. La Roche-Posay, Anthelios XL 50+ Melt-in cream, from a local pharmacy ^^ (official site:

First, the two Anessa sunscreens. First of all, I was surprised how TINY they are! The 25ml Pearly Sunscreen seriously looks like a sample... XD The 60ml Whitening Protector is a bit better, but anyway, they are both compact, small and hand bag friendly! Also the packaging is really cute~

REVIEW: パーフェクトパーリーサンスクリーンAA / Shiseido Anessa Perfect Pearly Sunscreen AA (25ml)
This sunscreen needs a good shake before you open the bottle, because it is a double consistency sunscreen (with some oils that need mixing) and it does have little pearly particles in it when you look at the 3rd photo, but applied on face (or hand, like below) they don`t really show and the effect is very very subtle and definitely no glitter-bomb on you face visible. Very natural and nice finish. It dried fast it very light (like milk, not cream), but I thought it feels a little bit oily? And I think I broke out a little bit after using it, so unfortunately this one wasn`t the best match for my skin. (;_;) Other than that, I think it`s really nice, although a bit expensive. RATING: 6 / 10 (I am disappointed that it doesn`t go well with my skin :<)


REVIEW: 美白 UV プロテクター / Shiseido Anessa Whitening UV Protector (60ml) 
This one is my favorite of the 3 sunscreens! I love it! It is light, like milk, not a cream, very easy to apply, feels moisturizing and is a great base for makeup. This one doesn`t need shaking, so don`t shake it, otherwise it will explode and you`ll get too much product! XD It has a very weak pleasant smell, sets into skin very fast and is a pleasure to apply. I had no skin problems after using it, I did not get a tan nor sunburn, the packaging is perfect size to put in a bag and I think it`s the best daily sunscreen I have tried so far. I did not notice any whitening after using it, but I didn`t really buy it for whitening purposes. 
The minus? It is quite expensive for such a small bottle.... But then again, it is very easy to apply and a little bit is enough for my whole face and neck, so it will last a long time! I think if you have the money, this is a very good investment! RATING: 9 / 10 (-1 for the price)

REVIEW:  La Roche-Posay, Anthelios XL 50+ Melt-in cream
This one was the cheapest of the 3, I got it from a local pharmacy/drug store, as La Roche Posay Anthelios is only sold in pharmacies where I live. It came in a gift set - with after sun protection cream (Posthelios, it`s OK but I wouldn`t buy it for full price) and a cosmetic pouch. This one is definitely not a fluid/milk, but a really thick cream consistency. It says it`s a "melt-in cream" and it kinda does absorb well, but you can definitely say it`s a rich creamy CREAM. XD You can use it as a daily sunscreen I guess, but I think it`s too rich and thick for everyday for my taste. And I think definitely too heavy for mixed/oily skin. Maybe normal/dry skin (and sun allergy delicate skin) will like it better. Actually I quite like it, but I kind of think it`s a more beach/forest/swimming/outdoor activities sunscreen, not city/daily/under makeup sunscreen, BUT you can use it like that as well, if you don`t have oily skin. So allergic reaction or break outs, it takes a while to absorb into skin, but then it`s okay and my makeup stays on fine. I must say I quite like it, but I should have gotten an Anthelios sunscreen in milk consistency, not cream, because it`s easier to use daily! So I think I just should have bought another products from the Anthelios series, but Anthelios XL 50+ Melt-in cream is a very good sunscreen, tho rich and creamy, while I wanted more of a lotion-type sunscreen. My bad! :) The price is OK, and I like the product, but I like Anessa nr 2 better! :D I will definitely use this when I go bike riding/hiking, etc though, more economic! XD RATING: 8 / 10.

creamy cream type! ; D

So that is all for today. I hope my review was helpful! Please use sunscreen, even if you like to tan! I`m on a roll, two post in one month!!! XD More is coming, I hope to post something fun soon. Big hugs & love~

[sister reports!] Report from rainy Seoul, Republic of Korea!

So, my younger sister is spending her summer holidays in Korea right now and I hear she is having a great time everyday! She will be also attending a language course soon, study hard! I thought, a travelling report would be nice and asked her, to send me some photos, and she did! So here comes a current report from Seoul for You! ^^* (I will keep the picture size small, so your computer doesn't die if You have a slower connection, but you can click on each photo and see bigger size! ^^*)

First of all, meet my younger sister, G. She is 2 years younger, but over 10cm taller than me, what gives?? Gimme 5cm, You!!! XD

She made friends with a popular blogger in Seoul, Noona, too! Yay! 
Bloggers are just normal, nice people, you know. ;D

Of course going to Korea means buying lots of cosmetics and reporting back to older sis (aka ME) about what interesting things are on display in stores. :)
My sister is seriously a nail art master, I'm jelly. 

*Grabby hands!*

If you go to Korea you don't even have to think hard about what to bring back as presents, just grab lots of sheet masks and soju and soju related gadgets (like soju bottle shaped earrings) and you're done! Also, Missha Cleansing Oil aka. MY FAVOURITE oil cleanser out there!!! Get it!


My sister went to some party and saw her idols, GD and T.O.P. (or however their names are spelled! XD). She also goes clubbing a lot, I hear, and I would really love to go to our favorite club in Gangnam, club MASS! 

LOL, I think those 2 photos sum up what foreigners live on while visiting Korea, beer+soju and mayo, ketchup and soy sauce, and other than that it's just grabbing some food in bars and restaurants, since it all so cheap and delicious! ;D

Bye bye, rainy Seoul!
So that's the end of the Korea trip report from my younger sister! I hope you enjoyed it and are also having wonderful summer holidays! Unfortunately I can't go anywhere this year, but I did treat myself to one super fun event.... can you tell who I saw from the photo below... ;D (Oh, I loved him so much in high school and I still do, my idol! It was wonderful and I cried. (;_;)ILU)

Of course I went to see GACKT & YFC concert in Warsaw!!!!!!

I wore Tick shoes and fake lashes and all for Mr. Gackt, I hope he noticed me from the stage <333 *weak laugh* I am not joking. I was sending him love-filled looks, but at first I was too intimidated to look Him straight in the eyes, omg, lol! XD Anyway it was WONDERFUL and I am glad I met Elluin there too. :)

PS. I also created a FACEBOOK PAGE for my blog... I don't really know why?? xD But if you like my blog, please do feel free to cliks "I like" on the cosme411 FB page. ^^* Also you can contact me directly thru this page. ^^* Hugs & love.

My Jeffrey Campbell shoes collection, so far! ;D

Hello everyone! I want to share my Jeffrey Campbell shoes collection so far. I only started getting JC shoes less than 2 months ago and the damage done so far is 4 pairs of shoes! v(^___^*)v Of course I love them all!!! I want more JC shoes! Next on my wishlist (well, the top 3 anyway) are: Foxy in Multi glitter, Tardy in black & Friend in orange!! But, that`s coming up, so far, my collection looks like this:

From top left, clockwise: Mary Roks in Nude, Denmark, Mildred Pain, Tick.

I love them all!!! (V^-°)イエイ! I just got Denmark recently, on sale, so they will have to wait till the summer ends, but when it`s cold, I`ll be wearing them everywhere! I absolutely love them and I believe they were one of the first Jeffrey Campbell shoes` pair that really caught my eye. I was so lucky to buy them at 46% OFF! ^^* Some pairs are in size 8, because I wasn`t sure what my USA size is, but turns out I am a size 7!! I will be definitely buying 7 from now on, but size 8 is also possible to wear for me, so I won`t throw those pairs out! ^3^)☆Chu! Below, take a look at each pair, my thoughts and info on where I got them. ↓

(V^-°)イエイ!Jeffrey Campbell: Tick in black grainy leather. SHOP:
The heel is 13cm, the platform is 3cm, so you still walk on a 10cm heel, but it`s a wedge, so it`s very easy to walk in and very comfortable! I got this pair together with Mary Roks and I want to wear them more for nights out. I will wear them to Gackt concert! They look super cool with leather like leggins or black tights. ^^* Those shoes just look kick ass. 

(V^-°)イエイ! Jeffrey Campbell: Mary Roks in Nude. SHOP:
I bought these together with Tick, from solestruck. They arrived fast, but they were stopped at customs office and I had to pay like over 40% off the total value in customs and tax!! (Actually I had to pay 40% tax&customs for each pair! OTL) ~(>_<。)\ イタタ But, when I got them and tried them on, I didn`t regret it at all! v(≧∇≦)v イェェ~イ♪ The heel is 11cm and the platform is 2cm, so you should feel a 9cm heel when wearing those, but guuuuurls, those shoes are comfortable like slippers! It is so easy to walk in them whole day long, no problems! The have soft padding inside and are really super comfortable, the wedge sole is stable... just great! I want Mary Roks in Black too! They are also so easy to wear with different outfits! ^^*

(V^-°)イエイ!Jeffrey Campbell: Mildred Paint. SHOP:
Actually, I saw those at the wonderful Asami`s Pink Kitten blog (this post specifically)and I totally fell in love with those shoes... But I couldn`t find them anywhere and I already just dropped some money on the first two pairs, so I wasn`t going to spend anymore. But when I saw them in my size at PLUM FOR POLLY, I just lost control! XD I had to have them, and oh man, I don`t regret it at all. Those shoes are ART! They are super beautiful, super comfortable... When they arrived I had to stop myself from putting them in my bed for the night XD Love at first sight. XD
The heel is 12cm, platform is 2cm, so we`re dealing with a 10cm heel. They are super comfortable though, I can wear them for the whole day and walk around in them and my feet were as good as new! Nothing! AMAZING. (*_*) 
You might think, "Meh, white shoes, what can I wear them with? What season are they for anyway?", but you know what, you can wear them with anything, they fit so many different styles and just add the Paint magic to any coordinate. Worn with blue jeans in them, above. I also wore them bare feet, with black jeans over them, with tights... Anyway you like it. イエイ~♪ (★^▽^)V

(V^-°)イエイ!Jeffrey Campbell: Denmark in Black-beige combo. SHOP:
This is my fourth pair and I am really proud, because I bought them ON SALE from solestruck, yay! Which means I got them for 46% off the regular price. ヽ(*^。^*)ノ ワ~イ There is a warm, fluffy sherpa lining every where inside those cute boots. The fold can be also worn up, then they look almost like Litas, with wooden heelヽ(*^。^*)ノ ワ~イ It`s still not season for them, but I can`t wait for autumn/winter!! The heel is 13cm and the platform is 4cm, so it feels like a 9cm heel, except more comfortable and stable!The heel is nice and thick and they are easy to walk in. 

So, that`s it for now! It is my birthday on July 31st, so I really really want to get myself Jeffrey Campbell Foxy in multi glitter for my birthday, to have 5 pairs total and add a definitely summer style to my collection. Then I want the black Tardy, the orange Friend, and soooo many more.... XD It is addicting, when you get one pair, you will want more! Such bold and fierce, yet suuuuper comfortable shoes... *gasp* Just perfect! せ~の (o ̄▽ ̄o) わ~い \( ̄▽ ̄o)/
