Ahh it was nearly a month ago I created this post:O
DISCLAIMER:This is just a collection of my thoughts and opinion,intended to inform not persuade:)I’ve tried to included links to sites I’ve brought from before but still be wary as I’ve included one or two sites I’ve not brought from just to show the products.
After reading Milichi’s awesome nude lip tutorial ,I thought about making a post about products for getting nude lips that were easily avalible in the UK.
I then decided to make a whole post about products that were readily available in the UK for gyaru make upXD
Products that I’ve found while looking for similar things that I’ve seen in gyaru magazines
Base~Either foundation ,concealer (I don’t really use those two but their options)
I use Barry-m 101 Lip paint or MAC painterly paint pot
Glosses~Lancome strawberry sorbet,MAC oyster girl or c thru MAC Pink fish lip conditioner NYX and recently YSL Lingerie PinkXD
Products that are in gyaru mags that are available abroad
I see alot of Revlon, Boujois, l’oreal, Maybelline,The body shop,MAC and NARS products in model’s make up bags and in tutorials in mags with Bobbi Brown cropping up recently.Their collections seem to be made up of drugstore brands ,some higher end brands and then Japanese brands such as Canmake,co&lu,Kate,Cezanne,Visee,AC, Charcott, Candydoll,RMK and a few others.
Some of which can be purchased from this website http://ichibankao.com/default.aspx ~I have brought from them before and intend to buy again.
I got mine from Screenface in London for about £14/15
I wanted to get this as I noticed it was being used a primer in most of the tutorials I saw it in.
I am really happy with it,I don’t like moisterising my face(terrible I know) because it makes my skin feel greasy and grim(at least it does to me) with this my skin feels hydrated!I put it on a night and before my make up and the difference in my skin is lovely,its make it feel even and softXD
I also keep seeing NYX products croping up in some of the mags as well ,most recently a page spread in JELLY(which I can’t seem to find at the moment) I recently brougt 2 palettes and a concealer from this seller they’ve not arrived yet but the seller has 100% feedback.
Dupe for MAC#7 lash=Eylure:Miss eylure Ava (avalible from Superdrugs or Boots)
These are what I used before I got some #7’s.They look alot like to me tbh,placing them together you notice their differences in size and quality but their good for a cheap alternative.Only downside I can say is the fact they come pre glued(yuk) and it’s abit of a pain to remove the glue,so I stick them to something to make the glue tacky and then remove it.
Gosh ~Darling is allegedly a dupe for MAC myth.Personaly I don’t know as I’ve never tried either as I feel MAC myth is too dark for my skin tone,but I intend to try gosh’s Darling as its relatively inexpensive(in comparison)and Superdrugs often have a 3 for 2 offer on Gosh productsXD
Glitter Liners~Collection 2000
I love these liners,I’ve not tried the urban decays ones but I have swatched them and these ones seem more packed with glitter imo:)
Hope this post was of use to someone:D
Questions and feedback are welcome.
I’ll proberly continue to add to this as Im not 100% happy with it but I just wanted to finally post it up.
