W7 Neon Nights Review (Urban Decay's Electric Dupe)+Swatches

Hey everyone!

It's been a long time now and I decided that I will blog every now and then!

Today I wanted to write a short review about W7's Neon Nights Eyeshadow Palette.
I planned to get Urban Decay's Electric palette for a while now and I was surprised, that W7 duped it.
Of course I had to buy it, since I am a poor student and 7 Euros are definitely more afordable than 45!

This is the Neon Nights palette

And here we have Urban Decay's Electric palette.

First thing I noticed about the Neon Nights palette is, that it has more colors than the Urban Decay palette.
That's of course a huge plus for me, since I wanted a colorful palette with high pigmentation for a low price.
I am sorry for my weird swatches, I had an allergic reaction to my cat, while I was doing it, so my skin may seem a little bit red >_<

First off, the ones without a base:

I think the results are okay, but I would not want to wear the silver and yellow color without a base. The colors are noticeable, but not as colorful as I hoped.

So now the swatches with a base:

All in all the colors are very nice, they could have a higher pigmentation for very shiny, bright looks, but that's a 7 Euro product, so it's good enough!
Also the eyeshadows somehow crumble a little bit, that does bother me a little bit, but like I said, it's 7 euros..!
I would definitely give it a try, especially if you're a broke student like me :'D
I hope I will have the chance to try out the Electric Palette soon and compare both palettes!

Thank you for reading, I hope this review helped you a little bit!
I made some tryouts with the eyeshadow and thought the result with the red color got actually pretty good:

I wanted to make a full face photograph but my other eye messed up sorry >_<
Have a great day and week, everyone! <3

Review: GEO Nudy Blue by MapleLens

Hi everyone!!
I am trying to blog again so I wanted to post a Review of GEO Nudy Blue Lenses today. I received them from MapleLens very fast so I could try out a Psyche Gal look with them :D

First off:
I am a customer for 2 years now and I am always happy that I get my lenses so fast!!
It takes not more than a week for them to arrive with Express shipping that costs ca 7 Euro!
They were packed well and the cute lens cases are an extra I always enjoy *^*

5/5 POINTS for Shipping and Package!

The Lenses

You can find them here: CLICK!

Diameter : 14.2mm
Water Content : 38%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 1 Year Disposal

I wore those lenses 4 hours everyday for three days and there were no problems with them. I had to use eye drops to keep my eyes from being irritated, but that's an issue I have with my eyes and lenses in general :D
All in all they were comfortable to wear, they didn't hurt or irritate my eyes!

4,5/5 POINTS for Comfort

Look and Design

I am VERY HAPPY about the look those lenses give me! My eyes get an awesome light tone when I wear them and they fit especially Gyaru-makeup very well!!
It doesn't look quiet natural, so I would recommend them for Cosplay or Gyaru Makeup or just to look noticeable!
Still the lenses are a great purchase if you want to give your eyes a special look.

5/5 POINTS for Look and Design

The Lenses in natural light:

The Lenses with artificial light:

The Lenses with camera flash:

And my natural eye color just to compare:

Eye Enlargement

So my eyes are pretty small and it looks kind of weird when I wear too big lenses! Even when I enlarge my eyes with makeup it does look weird mostly and I prefer to buy lenses that don't enlarge too much!
When I got the GEO Nudy Blue I was kind of scared that they would look too big on my eyes, but I was positively surprised.
The enlargment is not HUGE, it's not like your whole eyeball is full of the lens, but it's BIG and with BIG I mean BIG!
They make your eyes look BIG but not in a creepy way and that's something I find very positive!

4.5/5 POINTS for Eye Enlargement


It was a pleasure to try those lenses! They fullfil my gyaru makeup perfectly and I want to wear them all the time!
I had some small problems with some lenses in the past and there are some that really hurt and dehydrate your eyes after a couple of hours, but those lenses are pretty good!
I would give them 4.5/5 POINTS in general because they are pretty comfy and damn good looking!

In the End some Worn-Pictures:

So I hope I could help you with my review and hope to make another blogpost soon again ^-^

Have a nice week!

Are replicas worth it? (Prisila)

Hey cuties
I decided to make a post about Replicas today :)
I am using Prisila products for a couple of months now and I also own a couple of replicas.
I started to notice complications with the replicas already in the beginning, but I got some tips from my readers and could fix the hair pieces for a little period of time ^-^
What happened after that was pretty easy: while my original pieces are in an awesome condition my replicas are not useable..AT ALL!
Now to start with the story:
I bought replica extensions from Prisila (the girl told me they were replica and I got them for a fair price!)
They looked totally okay and I couldn't even see the difference towards the real thing :)
After wearing my replicas more than 2 times, even for a short period and not outside, I had to wash them because they tingle really easily!
The extensions were EXTREMELY damaged after this! I finally could saven them, but not without visible damage:

I used a special wig comb to comb the extensions and still it had damaged parts like this.
So after I wore them for the MeetUp in Frankfurt I had to wash them again and now they are damaged and not to rescue anymore :(
My wig comb broke while I desperately tried to comb out the tingles and even after using special products (I bought Wig Conditioner and Shampoo)and following tutorials of how to untangle wigs with normal conditioner or fabric softener it couldn't get better :( !
I even broke another comb :(

Now the extensions look like this:

That's the drama about my own Prisila replica extensions :(
But what I want to point out here is: Are those replicas really worth the money?!
Just a comparsion between the real deal and the replica:
The real thing is this:

It has a good structure and the hair is full and looks real! Also the inside of the hair piece is done nicely!

Now the Replica of that item:

Less hair, bad structure and needed some work until it looked real...also very hard to care for! The inside of the hair piece is definitely not as good as the original one:

Even if replicas look somehow nice in the first moment, especially because you can get them on taobao very cheap, I wouldn't recommend them.
And this is why:
This is a Volume Wig from Taobao:

If you use it seems like you won't pay that much:

BUT there are of course shipping costs from the shopping service to your adress and depending on the items weight shipping costs from 12 USD (I just assumed this piece is 200 g) up to 25 USD for this one hair piece
So if we pick the cheapest method it would be about 30 USD for a hair piece!
You can wear it about 5 times and then you can throw it away :(
An original Prisila piece costs a lot more!
My Volume wig (the same as the one I took for this example) was worth 5000Yen!
With a shopping service for Rakuten, where you can get Prisila things, too, you would pay about 55 USD for this hair piece and you can wear it for a year or longer if you take good care of it!
So 25 USD that you save with the replica that you can't even wear that often :/
Do you think this is worth it?
I honestly don't think this is worth it!
Thank you for reading and I hope I could help you a little bit to get to know more about Replicas and their quality!
Of course there can be good replicas, too, but me careful with what you buy!
Have a nice week everyone <3

I made it!

Hey cuties!
I have 3 weeks of holidays now and I have time to relax and take some care of myself T_T
It was a hard long road to this point and I am happy I did it!
Good news: I have a normal cam to make normal pictures!
They day I got it, I rushed to shoot some new pictures with my new lenses and eyelashes *^*
I had to try out every mode of my cam to look how it changed after the fix!
Also I had to try on my new Liz Lisa dress that I got myself for my birthday *^*
Here are some pictures:

I am not that disappointed with the results, but the quality changed and I can feel it :(
Since I've got a new phone to my birthday (Samsung Galaxy S4) I couldn't resist to make some selfies *^*
Unfortunately the quality sucks hard on the frontcam! -.-
It's blurry and looks bad, but sometimes I am lucky enough to have not that blurry pictures!

I tried to make the pictures less blurry because I actually liked them pretty much :(
It's really sad that my new mobile phone's cam has a worse quality than the one from my old phone :(
Right now I am very sick again (damn flu!!) and can't do much T_T
I was planning to do a contouring tutorial for beginners, because I recently started to practice contouring more and more.
after a few weeks I think my results are pretty good for a beginner level and I wanted to share with you how I do it.
So when I stop being Rudolph the Reindeer (because of my red nose T_T) I will definitely make one ^-^
It helped me so much to see some makeup tuts and especially pictures of how to start with it like this:

It really IS pretty hard to figure out what suits you the best and what products you should use etc. but the results after you finally got it right are worth the work!
SO I guess that's it for today!
I am going to lie in my bed and get better ASAP ^-^
Happy Holidays, everyone! Enjoy this time!

Time to blog again ^-^

Hi everyone!
I had a REALLY rough time the last couple of weeks!
It felt like I was the unluckiest girls in the world T_T
First I had computer issues, then my cam broke and my mobile phone is nearly completely broken, too!
I got stress in school and personal issues..
Also I was really sick and had a surgery(jaw bone because of my teeth xD) >_<
And the stress and unluck is still not over :(
Eventhough I had the time to dye my hair ^-^
I received some cheap extensions that had a different color than I ordered...they were RED!
Not dark red or brownish-red...they were really bright red...
As I didn'T want to waste money I decided to dye them ^-^
Eventhough the result isn't as I hoped for, I am really satisfied with it ^-^
Here are some pictures:

I look a little bit strange since my mobile phone has a really bad cam recently :( so sorry!
The red is not a s bright as in the's more a brownish red in real life ^-^
What do you think about the color? ^-^
Also I found time to make a lighter gyaru makeup again and try sujimori on my hair
Though I couldn't make pictures of my failed sujimori attempt :(

I have sooo much work to do T_T
A couple of makeup tutorials and coords for GALVIP are still to shoot and I can't get used to the cam...
If you haven't seen the latest issues of GALVIP you can see HERE!
Unfortunately I had problems so only my 3 Fall Coords survived my computer break down T_T
So that's it for now! ^-^
I am very sorry that I couldn't blog for so long but I try to keep it up!
Have a nice weekend everyone!!

Community problems? My point of view on gaijin gyaru community

HI everyone!
Today I just wanted to write about a more serious topic:
The Gaijin Gyaru community!
I've read so many negative things about the community that I really have to say a few things!
1st thing:
Stop blaming the community!
Many girls who are new to gal are scared of secrets and negative statements.
Well that's a fear I can share! I also was scared, when I debuted in gal over one year ago!
BUT it's not okay to say "The community is mean, they will only hurt me and make fun of me!" just because you know there is the possibility that someone can make secrets about you!
If you're not sure about yourself and you're open to constructive criticism you can post in daily_gyaru or in the facebook groups and ask for tips!
I've NEVER had the experience that someone was made fun of, because he wasn't that far!
Many gals try to help you and give you tips and I try to do it aswell!

2nd thing:
If someone tells you nicely how to improve don't get bitchy!
All what we want is to help you! Of course you're maybe just not that good with makeup or hair or anything, but that's what the community is for: HELPING each other!
Personally, I had some really bitchy and rude reactions when I tried to give tips!
I don't think anyone wants to be mean to you or insult you in any way, so don't get angry and try to make it better next time!
It's not a flaw of the community that YOU are not (yet) perfect ^^ (I know it sounds harsh and rude but I just can't find any other words and I am sorry if I hurt somebody with my statements :c)

3rd thing:
So secrets are a main thing why the community seems sooooo bad!
Honestly said I have the feeling that only a FEW people post secrets!
And how can we be sure that they are even part of the community?
The thing is, that we can't be 100% sure who posts this shit about us and the best way is to avoid sites like g_s and do your thing!
I enjoy a calmer life since I don't care about secrets anymore and you should, too!
So PLEASE stop saying that secrets are made from the community! There are also non-gals who could look through the gaijin gyaru tag on tumblr and write something mean! I bet 90% of the gaijin gyarus in the community don't even have time to write secrets!

4th thing:
There are people who don't like you everywhere
Even in school, on work or else where, there are people YOU don't like and people who just don't like you!
Get over it, you can't be everybody's sweetheart!
I, personally just don't like some girls and I don't have any contact with them, that's all!
Even if they would write me I wouldn't be bitchy or anything, maybe I would learn to like them, the more I get to know them ^-^
If someone make you feel like he doesn't like you then just don't pay attention to that person and don't blame the community for it!

My personal experience with the community is good!
I met so many beautiful girls, who I can talk to and who are just lovely sweethearts *^* (especially since I am a part of GALVip *^* It's like a huge family, everyone helps you out *^*)
I think it's not fair to blame the community for this!
Of course there are some negative sides, especially with more famous gals! But it's not like this normally and there are jealous people everywhere :C

Also I just wanted to say thank you to all those lovely people who made my life a little bit sweeter!
I really don't regret getting into gal <3
This post wasn't meant to offend anyone! It's just my view on the GG Community!
Also some examples for a nice and helping community are GYARU LOVERS a german GAL Community and Diamant Rose a french GAL unit!
I think you can see how awesome they support each other ^-^
I just like to think back to meeting some gals a couple of months ago *^*

It was SO much fun!
So that's for it! Just told what I have to tell :D
Hope you have a nice week!!

This took FOREVER!

Hi cuties! <3
FINALLY I found time to blog!
I have had a very good time in Italy, where I visited Pisa, Firenze and Viareggio with my class.
We had a small hotel in Montecatini Terme and it was a very nice trip to learn something about Italy *^*
Before I went to Italy, I cut my hair pretty short!
I had to say goodbye to 15 cm of hair due to the damage I got from all the hairdyes :(
Here's a picture of my recent real-hair style:

This was the day I just arrived in Italy after a 14-hours over-night drive in the bus T_T
After Italy I visited my boyfriend for a week and after this my misfortune began...
I received a set of hair extensions that was not the way I thought it would be:
It was so disappointing for me :c
Also the color was way too dark, eventhough I ordered a mid-brown, I got a dark-brown :(
But's something! :D
I could find use of those overpriced, nearly not existing extensions and used them for the trip to the sushi restaurant!
Here's a picture of my makeup and hair this time:

But that's not all!
I bought a ma*rs replica set and a agejo-styled dress, too!
And guess what? The ma*rs replica set was too small for my bust..I just could squeeze them into this little thing XD
Also the dress got lost somewhere and I was really sad because I really really liked it!
Well now I fit into the ma*rs replica set and the dress is already on the way to me again *^*
Of course I had to take pictures of my set yesterday with a lend cam, since mine is broken -.-

That's somehow the news for now!
I will have to work a lot on the GAL VIP Assignment this time as long as I have a good cam!
I would love to blog more often from now on and I will try to take my time for it!
Everyone, have a nice weekend and week!
