Too faced Bon bons palette review ♡

The too faced Bon Bons palette came out a few days ago  and I purchased it right at midnight and to my surprise I got a package in the mail the next day from Too Faced and they actually sent me the new palette! (The one I personally ordered is still in the mail somewhere and ill be returning it!) They sent it along with a beautiful ACTUAL chocolate bar. *which was amazing by the way* I was so caught off guard... I'm very appreciative! On the Too Faced website the palette is currently $49 and in stock!

The chocolate bar was dark chocolate Champagne and strawberries that featured some of too faced best products all over the packaging. Its so cute I can't bring myself to throw it away. It seems like the candy bar is from a place called Compartes ~ I checked out their website and they have so many yummy options! Definitely check them out if you're into chocolate at all or know anybody who is ♡ Since Christmas is coming up thats a great stocking stuffer for that cute chocolate lover in your life~

I love love love all the Too faced palettes but this one has got to be the cutest one they have come out with... by far. Its amazing! The packaging is so adorable.  I love the names of all the colors. Am I the only one who thinks the names of colors makes things more desirable? I once bought an eyeshadow that was called "kitten" purely just because of the name -oops-. I've been waiting for this palette to come out for so long its so exciting to finally have it here with me. 

I love that the palette isn't made of fabric or something I can't wipe clean because my makeup palettes  tend to get pretty dirty and I like the option of being able to clean them! The palette also has a magnetic closure so you don't have to worry about the palette opening up in your bag and breaking. It also has a large mirror on the inside which is amazing for traveling!

Before I actually tried the colors, I knew my favorites were going to be satin sheets, cotton candy, sprinkles, and molasses chip! There are 16 shades in total and most of them are shimmery. There are only four totally matte shades and the rest are shimmery and contain little bits of glitter. Black currant and Cafe au late seem to be the most "glittery". I absolutely love shimmer and glitter but if you're looking for a palette with tons of matte shades, this probably isn't the one for you. I do think this will be a great starter palette for anyone starting with makeup though because it has a lot of neutral shades that look great on every skin tone as well as a few fun colors to play around with! I don't own the semi sweet chocolate bar (the second chocolate bar) so I can only compare it to the first one and I personally think its an amazing improvement and for me to say that means a lot because I use that one every single day! The first chocolate bar didn't have the names printed by the shades which wasn't a huge deal but its so much more convent having them there. 

After swatching all the colors I found my absolute favorite shade was satin sheets and i'm so excited that was my favorite because its one of the larger shades! It reminds me of a champagne color. Its absolutely stunning. Its going to be my every day color for a while! I do apologize for my swatches because I don't have any eyeshadow primer right now :(. But even without primer the colors came out amazing. Over time i've found that using pink colors is really hard without primer but these came out great! The only thing I was kind of sad about with this palette is that it doesn't smell like chocolate as much as my original chocolate bar palette does. Maybe i'm just used to the scent? While I was playing with the bon bons palette today I was happy to find that there was very little fallout! The colors were creamy and went on really smooth. I recommend it to all of you ! ♡ If you're new with makeup this would be a great treat and if you're experienced with makeup this would be a great palette to add to your collection.

What do you guys think of the new Bon Bons palette? ♡ 

How to save money online for Christmas ♡

If you are a huge online shopper like I am you know how great it is when you find a good coupon online~ I hate going to malls during the holiday season because they are always SO packed. I can't handle the huge crowds that are just mobbing around so naturally... I do all my shopping online. I've been using Ebates for a while and basically what it is, is a website that gives you cash back for shopping at certain stores online! I use it mostly for Sephora, Ulta, Amazon and Ebay. They have hundreds and hundreds of websites you can choose from!~ 

Once you choose what website you want to shop from it just takes you straight there. Then you're just on the normal website! You can get your cash back via check in the mail or sent to your paypal! I thought I would just let you all know since all my Christmas posts will be mostly things you can buy online and this will help tons

Christmas wishlist part 1 ♡

 Too faced is coming out with a brand new chocolate palette and if you've been following me for a while you would know I absolutely love the chocolate bars. I have a few reviews up on my blog about them. This new one is SO cute and the colors are gorgeous. 

♡ Marie pouch ♡ 
I think I have a strange addiction of collecting makeup bags... and for a Marie one I couldn't resist! Although in reality I think I would be scared to carry it around with me. I wouldn't want it to get dirty. 

♡ Fairy dust ♡
 All the lush christmas products this year look great! Honestly, I want one of everything. The fairy dust is supposed to be a glittery powder you put on your skin and that seems so appealing to me!


♡ Iphone 6S ♡
 I will not get this as a present but its A nice thought! I still have the 5s ;  - ;

 This little printer is so cool! I own one of the little instax cameras and it prints out an instant image that looks like a polaroid! The instax printer lets you take photos with your phone and you can print out any photo via bluetooth and it will come out on a little polaroid~

♡ Super sonico figure ♡
 Im not sure if this figure is out yet but I need it so bad. I really want to cosplay this version of her next year for Anime expo and comic con! 

♡ My melody bag ♡
I love little bags like this so much because they are super easy to throw on top of any outfit and it makes it 1000 times more adorable~

These platforms are PERFECTION. I want them just because, honestly.

Nintendo New 3DS review + first impression (Happy home designer bundle) ♡

So I have been waiting for the new 3DS to come out ever since it was announced for Japan and I almost gave up on it ever getting released in America but it is finally here! The new 3DS with all the cute faceplates everyone has been waiting for ♡ The new 3DS is going for about $219 on amazon. The release in america is actually an Animal crossing happy home bundle. So you get the new Animal crossing game, and the new 3DS for $219!

The bundle also comes with two animal crossing themed cover plates and one amiibo card. The bundle doesn't come with a charger though... I'm not really sure why the new 3DS doesn't come with a charger but you can purchase one here if you don't currently own one and are planning to get the new 3DS. Im really excited to play the new Animal crossing game even though its not a typical AC game. Happy home is actually an interior design game where you help your fellow villagers decorate their homes! Hence, happy home ~ 

Thats where the amiibo cards come in. Amiibo cards are a new form of Amiibo, they pretty much look exactly like trading cards but they are super pretty and sparkly! (I got to see some this summer at comic con! ) each pack is going to come with 6 cards and are going to go for $5.99. (you can purchase amiibo card packs here) The amiibo cards will allow you to have exact villagers move into your town which is actually really great and fun because I like knowing who will be living in my town! And if you are wondering yes, the game is 100% playable without having to buy the Amiibo cards! If you aren't planning on buying the new 3DS but want to play Happy home and play with the amiibo cards you will have to buy the Happy home / NFC card reader bundle.

The best (and my favorite part) about the new 3DS is the cover plates. There are so many cute ones to choose from! You can find them simply by looking up "new 3DS cover plate" here are a few of my personal favorites!~

♡  1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 ♡ 
They all vary in price depending on rarity.

This morning I went over to Gamestop and picked up my bundle and I was shocked of how pretty the box looks in real life! Its actually a lot smaller than I thought it would be too!~ I also bought 5 packs of amiibo cards (I had to stop myself from buying more... ; - ;)

So this is all the stuff that comes inside the bundle box. It comes with two different cover plates which is a good deal considering most cover plates are going for over $20. I don't particularly like the ones the bundle comes with so I won't be using them. The bundle also comes with some AR cards that I never pay attention to, one amiibo card, and of course the little guide for the new 3DS. 

After opening my five packs of cards here are the ones I was actually happy with! The top row are the holographic special cards. In every amiibo card pack there is one special card!~ The ones I don't want i'll probably trade away or sell. 

The cards themselves are extremely high quality and don't feel as though they will get ruined with use. They appear to be thicker than a normal playing card so it won't bend! The glittery or holographic cards are so pretty I can't wait to find a cute way to display them. I wouldn't recommend carrying these around loosely. 

As you can see I picked out the pink stripped cover plate. I think its super adorable ^~^ I really enjoy the feel of the new 3DS. Its slightly smaller than my older 3DS but I can't really tell the difference. 

Like I said, I just got my new 3DS this morning so I haven't used any of the new buttons or features but as a first impression, I'm very impressed. I was doubting if I should get the new 3DS or not and I'm so glad I decided to because I would have regretted not purchasing it!

As for the Happy home game, it looks really cute! I have only gone as far as creating my character but i really enjoy the fact you can now in fact change your skin tone and hair color. Once I play more of the game I will post a more in depth review. Its just important to remember that Happy home isn't an actual animal crossing game, its a spin off so in Happy home you can't really do the things you could do in New leaf or older AC games. Let me know if you guys would like a full review on the game~ 

I hope you all enjoyed my little first impression of both the new 3DS happy home bundle!  Remember, if you'd like to purchase the bundle you can do so here or if you'd just like to purchase the game you can do so here ♡  Are you planning on purchasing the new 3DS? Let me know down in the comments! 

Sugarpill Sparkle baby palette review & first impression ♡

I've been eyeing the Sugarpill Sparkle baby palette for so long now that I finally decided to go ahead and purchase it. The Sparkle baby palette goes for $34 and personally to me is well worth the money! My first initial thought when opening the box it came in was that the packaging was to incredibly beautiful I want to carry it with me everywhere! Im going to do my best to keep it clean (for some reason all my makeup ends up so dirty ; - ;) 

The names of the shadows on the palette are so adorable! Kitten parade, Frostine, Hotsy totsy, and Candy crush ♡ My two favorite colors are Kitten parade and Frostine! All the colors are available as singles on the Sugarpill website if you wanted just one or two of them~

Even the inside of the palette is so beautiful! The actual colors are a lot larger that I expected which is great! More product to love~ (grabby hands) I need to make room on my makeup counter because it needs to be displayed front and center its so pretty.

The colors are slightly shimmery and very pigmented! I tried them out with a brush on my arm with no eyeshadow primer and they still showed really well! Im 100% happy with my purchase and I can't wait to try out some new looks with these. I don't own a ton of colorful eyeshadows that are of good quality so I'm super excited! I will for sure be making more Sugarpill purchases in the future. I would compare the quality to Too faced which is one of my favorite makeup brands. The shadows feel very soft and glide super easily on your skin. Even without primer they are very wearable ~

They recently just started a nail polish line and I want to try them so bad! The colors all look so pretty and perfectly glittery. Most definitely will be my next purchase~ Have you tried anything from Sugarpill or have anything from Sugarpill on your wishlist? Let me know down in the comments! 

Tokyo Otaku Mode Favorites ♡

Recently i've been super obsessed with Tokyo otaku mode because of all the super cute things they have on their site ~ They sell a tons of imported goods from Japan... they literally sell anything you can think of! I compiled a list of things that are on my personal wishlist from Tokyo otaku mode ♡ 

Too faced makeup collection ♡

My latest obsession has been with Too Faced cosmetics. My little collection is growing! They were kind enough to send me a few products to add to my collection. My obsession started when I was gifted the original chocolate bar for Christmas last year. The colors are so shimmery and pigmented I absolutely adore it. If you guys would like individual reviews on any of these products let me know. 

I used to swear by my Nars orgasm blush but ever since I tried the Sweethearts perfect flush blush in candy glow I can't use anything else! It works as a highlighter / blush duo without making you look oily. It compliments the color of my skin really well and I think would look so lovely on just about everyone! The Too faced liquid long wear lipstick in melted peony is SO amazing! You can see me wearing it in the gif below (ps ignore all the glitter in my hair!) 

The two eyeshadow palettes I have from Too Faced are the original Chocolate bar and the Cat eye palette! The Cat eye palette is really cool because it features really lovely pastel colors along with wet/dry colors you can use as normal shadows or eyeliners. It also comes with a little booklet of looks that you can try out. Its really helpful if you're new with makeup! Plus, the shadow names are the cutest. The chocolate bar is great because there are shimmery colors along with matte. The matte ones are really pigmented which is usually a problem I have with matte shadows. They never show up on me for some reason... even with primer. But these are fantastic.

Here are some of the powders I own~ From left to right they are: Amazing face powder foundation, Candlelight glow highlighting powder duo, Milk chocolate soleil bronzer, and Primed & powerless priming powder. Ive been using the face powder, highlighter and bronzer daily! The highlighter is perfect to sweep across the top of your cheeks. It adds SO much to your face! I can't imagine doing my makeup without it now.
