Jill Stuart jelly eye color N (#10)

Coming off the wings of my last post about Shu Uemura’s Shupette palette, I’m here with a small review of one small product. This eye shadow/jelly retails for 2200 yen (roughly $20). I really wanted something I could just slap on at any time. The glitter is very fine, color is there but it’s definitely on the sheer side.

I was extremely amused at the texture! It really feels like jelly, very bouncy and a little creepy. :cat3 The bottle also got me. I’ve worn it to work almost every day since getting it!

Unfortunately, #6 & #10 are going to be discontinued after 11/21

Lucky for me I bought #10 vintage decor before it was too late. :fa21

Pros:
cute bottle
beautiful shimmer
nice soft color
buildable
long lasting
can be used as eyeliner

cons:
glitter everywhere depending on removal method
price

Grade: A+
Repurchase? YES!! In two more colors. Most likely #2 and #7.

As with any kind of gel or jelly product, keeping the lid shut tight is the key to longevity. I can see this stuff lasting me well over a year. Finger application is the easiest and probably best way to go. Each eye takes a few seconds to blend out and then it sets and stays the same throughout the day. :fa23 Glides on like gel and sets like powder.

I really like this stuff. It’s super cute and get’s the job done. Couldn’t find anything to complain about. It does, strangely enough, have scent.. It’s pretty okay and goes away quickly. Price is a little steep for just one color, but it’ll last long enough to be worth it.

Here’s the official website where you can check out all their other products.

Might be able to find their stuff through online stores. Not sure where is the best place.

Shu Uemura Shupette X-mas Palette

I was wandering around Daimaru in Shinsaibashi on Saturday, and since I had an itch for some window shopping I spent quite some time in the fancy foofy makeup section. Why am I suddenly attracted to expensive makeup this late in my 20s..? (I see you rolling your eyes) Well, they got me.

The voices in my head won. :24

One of the compelling forces/voices that tipped me over to get this palette came from Choicerish. Really would like to try and pull off the middle look one of these days.

I have a bit of a thing going for Shu Uemra stuff even though they seem to be hit or miss. Expensive ones at that. One of my worst fears is to drop a good chunk of change there and get really disappointed by a dud. But, alas, that can happen with any high end brand anyway.

Here’s what’s pictured:
-shupette has-it-all eye & lip palette
-furry pouch
-silk cushion cheek (I chose pink)
-ultime8 sublime beauty cleansing oil (15ml)

I’ll use this palette every opportunity I get.

Treat it like my child because it might as well be with that price tag.

Some of my pictures


Pros:
eye shadow +fun colors
eye shadow +easily blendable
lip colors +good color pay off
case +adorable?!
case +big mirror

Cons:
eye shadow -color fades after a few hours (needs primer)
case -no clip to hold brushes in
case -fingerprint magnet

Grade: B+
This is a limited edition palette so it’ll probably be hard to find next year.

EXILE TRIBE PERFECT YEAR 2014 (Osaka)

Let me just preface this blog post by saying that this was completely a last minute impulse thing. Did I want tickets to see the show? Of course! But I missed out since they sell out so fast. On my way and back from work on Wednesday I saw so many fans… I was feeling down that I wouldn’t be able to go this year. The envy was real. I decided to look through yahoo auctions just to see what was out there. Basically after a little headache I successfully purchased an electronic ticket from someone who couldn’t make it due to work.


Yay goods =D goodbye money…

I was on the fence with Mendy’s train pass holder thing but refrained.. turns out it was sold out anyway.

I went to the second show of the tour. 9/4 at the Kyocera dome. It was a slightly rainy and cloudy day and thankfully there wasn’t a huge line at all for the goods area. It seems like most people got theirs in advance from the day before. After buying the goods I found my gate and lined up at 2:40. The gates were supposed to open at 3 but opened around 3:30……. The qr code ticket thankfully scanned in fine and it came with a CD.

I knew where my seats were by looking on line. Basically in the middle section of the whole dome. It wrapped around in a big circle.

On to the start of the concert.

I wanted the yellow/gold flag since yellow was the color for Osaka but I couldn’t choose. I got lucky and got it anyway.


The show didn’t start until around 5:30 and there was a pretty loooong intro video with all the heroes.. Finally Victory started up and everyone went crazy. I’m not gonna front, vocals were sort of iffy on the first couple of songs. I think they were too hype and excited haha. I don’t know if it was mic volume or what was going on. Won’t be long was a lot of fun as usual. VERBAL came out of nowhere and was rapping =D

There was a short 3jsb section where they only did like 2 songs. Ryusei and Sakura. Vocals were much better. I’d say Ryuji & Hiroomi got an equal amount of cheer when they were on screen. After 3jsb was The Second. OMFG… the second was on point. Their songs are so hype!!! Nesmith’s hair was pretty cool =D it suits him more than a plain old buzz cut, or that disastrous Sisqo hair he had going on at one point. Basically, he had dreads but the sides of his head were shaved. Shokichi’s hair was flawless too. Their songs are my favorite.. reminds me of 2jsb. They were followed by Generations and I don’t know what song they sang because I don’t really listen to gene. Right after gene 3jsb came back with only the vocalists… suddenly Matsu showed up with this super serious face and when he started dancing the crowd was like “aahhhh!!!” They brought up two couples that were about to get married and sang wedding bell… lucky. I think maybe sometime after Shokichi did his solo stuff or Takahiro did, my memory might be off. Takahiro’s performances were great. Nice vocals. He did GLORIA and it was hilarious because at the beginning of the song he sang the first part and then there was silence. He basically said “Oops, I forgot the words a little.” Adorable. He said something in Kansaiben during the show too.

There was the dance performance part where everyone got a turn. Sekai… got some moves. He is a beast.

Then suddenly E-Girls! They did a dance number and then sang RYDEEN dance all night. I like E-girls but the high vocals don’t do it for me. Gomen nasai no kissing you… I’m still completely baffled as to how this song was green lit. The whole time my knee jerk reaction was pinching my eyebrows.. it’s like bizarre happy circus clown music… I… just… it makes me confused and not in a good way.

Suddenly DJ Makidai. His parts were great~

I was really happy when they played Think about it by The second because I love that song and know the lyrics by heart. Shokichi did back to the future with the rampage. The anthem was hilarious, awesome, and suspect all at the same time. Akira was amazing.

Skip ahead to let’s party! They were on the moving platforms so close enough were I could see their faces even with my not so perfect vision. I left before the encore because I was exhausted from the little work that I did in the morning and lack of sleep… also wanted to beat the thousands of people rushing to the train. I’m a terrible fan =(

This has been my 4th LDH live and it’s always been fun. I wish I could go with someone next time… that would be nice but the ticket prices sort of make that impossible.

Lack of Atsushi was a bummer. There were a few low points vocal wise but the majority of the time it was where it needed to be. Energy for days from the performers. Grade: “A” would go again =D

Bought 3 random pins

Everything I got from the live
