March 2015 Haul
So as you'll notice down below, I have a new way of reviewing the products. It's like a star rating system but with hearts!
E.L.F. Makeup Mist & Set ~ Kmart ~ $3.00
This does exactly what it says. When you first spray it on it feels hydrating and refreshing. Ever since using this product I've noticed my makeup stays looking how it did when I first applied it throughout the entire day! Usually, my foundation would begin to wear off and areas of my face that get sort of red sometimes (like around the nostrils) would show through, but with this it hasn't happened.
Armor Ring ~ eBay ~ $1.31
I ordered this in the color silver. I love this ring sooo much and wear all the time. It has an adjustable ring band so it's able to fit me very well. I should note on fingers shorter than mine it may get a bit too long (with where the bands are positioned).
Hand Harness Chain Bracelet ~ eBay ~ $0.79
I ordered this in the color silver. It's a very nice and simple piece of jewelry. The chain does feel like it could be a bit fragile, so I have to take extra care not to snag it on something. The wrist part of it isn't adjustable and made for smaller wrists, so anyone with larger wrists may need to use chain extenders.
Stacking Midi-Rings ~ eBay ~ $0.99
Comes in a set of 3. I ordered this in the color Silver. The rings are nice and I love the look of them. They are adjustable which is a good thing, because they are very large for my fingers. I guess the downside would be with how much I have to tighten the rings the metal begins to over lap and it forms an awkward shape.
Fake Nose Rings ~ eBay ~ $0.99
Comes in a set of 2. I ordered this in the color Pink.
I love these so much. The price was great with it being 2 for a $1. They're available in so many different colors too! They're very easy to put on and take off and comfortable to wear.
Black Ball Choker ~ eBay ~ $1ish
The listing no longer exists. If you try searching for velvet chokers I'm sure you can find something similar though. When I received it, it was covered in some sort of dust but luckily could be cleaned off. The ball on it though had quite a few deep scratches. The choker, while adjustable, is still far too big for my neck and has to be safety pinned if I want it to fit well.
Crystal Elf Ear-Ear Cuff ~ eBay ~ $1.58
The piece is lovely and one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. It's worn on the left ear which is perfect and what I was looking for since my bangs go to the right. The downside would be it is a fairly heavy piece of jewelry and the adjustable cuff part towards the top does feel like if it's adjusted too much or too often it will snap.
Flat Top Makeup Brush ~ eBay ~ $1.86
The exact listing no longer exists (I purchased it for $1.50) but this is the same brush. There's many listings of this same brush so you may find one for cheaper. This brush is my absolute favorite. It's better and I love the results so much more than any of the other foundation brushes and beauty blender or sponges I've use. It makes my makeup smooth, blended and almost airbrushed looking.
Contour Palette ~ eBay ~ $2.48
I've used this palette for quite some time. The old one lasted me a year or more and I used it quite often. Powder/packed contour is my preferred way to contour. While I own and like the cream contour palettes, I feel they give a heavier look while this gives a more subtle and natural look.
Jinx Earrings ~Convention (Complexwish) ~ $10
These were one of my favorite purchases this month. The artwork is amazing and adorable. The League champion is one of my favorites! The earrings are reversible and sturdy. The seller also has such a large variety of characters and the artwork is just perfect!
Gold Anklet Chain ~ eBay ~ $1.00
This piece is absolutely beautiful and perfect for summer or a trip to the beach. It can tangled or twisted often but is easily untangled. The chain is thin and feels fairly fragile, so I'll have to take care not to snag it on anything.
Pink Bra Set ~ eBay ~ $5.43
I forgot to film this product for the video. I love the look of this lingerie set but unfortunately I got a fault-y piece. The seller refunded me the price of the bra (since the bottoms were fine). With the bra a strap was missing and it didn't even have the piece where the bra would hook (since these are removable bra straps). Also, even though it's in the correct sizing, the ruffles get stretched out and don't look as frilly or cute when worn. I love the color and everything but I unfortunately had many problems with the top.
Rose Pattern Overalls ~ Kmart ~ $17
I finally picked up a pair of overalls. I love the style and pattern of these. The only thing I find myself slightly disliking in the short style/length, but even then it's nothing too bad or that can't be fixed. It's nice quality.
Fake Leather Pants ~ Kmart ~ $12
I love these pants. They fit super well and have a great shape to them. They also have a slight stretch to them and are comfortable to wear. I originally picked them up to modify them for my Gamora cosplay but I found them so perfect for casual wear that I changed my mind.
Plaid Sheer Sweater ~ Kmart ~ $6
It's a bit odd looking on the rack but looks much better when worn. Unfortunately the front is quite a bit shorter than the back, so I don't enjoy the cut/length very much. Other than that this top is really cute.
Navy Blue Bow Tank ~ gift
I love this top. It's so cute and perfect for summer. It's light weight and is made out of breathable fabric.
Junko Hair Clips ~ eBay ~ $4.95
These are super perfect and great quality. They're easy to just clip into the wig/hair. They're also a reasonable price! :)
Hot Pink Wig ~ eBay ~ $.99
I ordered it in the color Rose Red. It's very long and super soft. It's a thicker wig as well which is great! It's also the perfect color for my Annie cosplay. The listing shows something a bit brighter just due to lighting and computer differences, but the color was fairly similar (just not as bright/glowy! xD).
_Navy Socks ~ eBay ~ $2.10
I ordered it in the color Navy. Nice quality and the perfect color for my Shiro cosplay! They're thinner fabric so they need to be handled with a bit more care.
Shiro Cosplay ~ eBay ~ $27.99
I love this cosplay so much. The sizing listed was true to size. I ordered a size small. Everything is so incredibly well made and made from great quality fabric. It even came with a few pieces not noted in the listing which is great! It's also so comfortable to wear. I ordered a different pair of socks (just above this) for the cosplay, so I've been wearing the socks that came with these casually. They're such nice quality and fit well.
Shiro Wig ~ eBay ~ $12.00
I recieved mine from an auction and got it for $12.00, so the listing I've linked is not exact and I'm sure you can search around for other auctions or listings to find different prices. This wig is incredibly long. It's not too thin but not super thick either, which is fine. It's coloring is great. It did not come styled if anyone's wondering, that is something I'll be doing myself. It's really nice quality too.
Screw Driver ~ Savemart ~ $5ish
It's a screw driver. Not sure what to say. It does what it's suppose to just fine. I do find it convenient that it has a place to hold the different piece around the end and am happy it came with so many different pieces.
Xbox Controller ~ Amazon ~ (gift)
Also not very sure what to say about this. It's a controller and it does it's job. It arrived nicely and so far I have found no faults with it.
Star Lamp ~ eBay ~ $6.20
I have yet to finish putting this together. The instructions' pictures are more helpful than any of the writing considering it's in a different language xD. One piece is a bit off (not necessarily broken but not exactly how it should be), luckily it was able to be fixed with a bit of tape xD. The packaging was slightly weird and some of the pieces where lose/came lose when shipping (didn't leave the packaging, but wasn't in it's slot in the Styrofoam either).
Positive outcomes only!~
