Kawaii Snacks Haul

There's just something so fascinating about korean/chinese/japanese snack foods and their packaging. The bubblegum pinks and the cute fonts make their products so instagrammable too! I recently went to a local chinese cash and carry to explore and I came out smilin' because I found so many cute and tasty treats. I wanted to share with you what I bought and how it tasted. 

Meiji Hello Panda Biscuits
I absolutely LOVE the sky blue colour and the graphics on this box. There are three types of flavours that you can choose from: strawberry, chocolate and milk. I opted for the milk filling since that's one of my favourite flavours in these types of snacks. In the box you'll find a cute blue packet. When you open the packet, you'll find cute lil biscuits with panda illustrations on them! The biscuits are crunchy and the milk filling tastes amazing with the biscuit. These make lovely travel snacks to munch on in the car or to carry in your bag. These aren't overly sweet so it's great as a lil treat. I think I need to try out the other two flavours.

Silk Road Fortune Cookies
I love a good ol' fortune cookie! I don't believe in fortune but I do like the novelty factor of this cute snack, it's so fun and interesting to see what a lil piece of paper says about you once you crack open the cookie. The actual cookie tastes lovely, again nothing too sweet but very crunchy and mildly sweet. I wouldn't mind eating these as actual biscuits if they're sold without the fortune inside. The cookies are individually wrapped and would make dinner parties and meals with the family more fun.

Meiji Yan Yan 
I absolutely LOVE these dippin' snacks. Cute vibrant packaging that definitely catches your eye! This particular once has a vanilla dip with biscuits to dunk into the sweet dip. I prefer this to milk chocolate, the biscuits themselves are sweet. This has to be the sweetest out of the three. If you really have a sweet tooth like me then you'll LOVE these. I only have a lil complaint about this certain product, there simply isn't enough dip!! I end up with so many biscuit sticks that I have to eat plain, hahaha.

Have you tried any of these kawaii snacks before?

Rediscovering Old Beauty Favourites

A good thing about having a huge make-up collection is that you rotate products to use often. I switch and change products to use on a daily basis and lately I have been using and loving these cosmetics. So pink and pretty.

I love using highlighters. Fact. I have been reaching out for this since it's so pretty and I absolutely love the shimmer and the overall look it gives to my complexion. It contains mini specks of glitter mixed in with light pink shimmer. The ultimate princess highlighter that I won't be changing any time soon.

This gives the perfect pink lip. I love NYX lip products and I have been loving how this has been keeping my lips soft and hydrated. I usually go for matte finishes but I ended up switching my look by finishing off my make-up with a glossy lip. I do LOVE good lipgloss.

I adore Clarins lip products and I have fallen for this lip perfector again. This is the perfect everyday lipbalm that looks so luxurious too! I have been wearing this lately on my no make-up days and what I love about this product is that it hydrates so well and gives my lips a custom shade of pink, since it reacts with the pH of my lips. I love products like this.

What products are you loving again?

Tanya Burr Soft Luxe Collection Lipgloss in 'Martha Moo' Review

Team Internet are taking the world by storm. I'm subscribed to many fellow youtubers and this particular youtuber/blogger/makeup artist/book author is doing so well for herself, no one other than Tanya Burr.

Tanya Burr released her make-up collection in 2014 and I was particularly drawn towards the Soft Luxe collection which came out this year. I'm lovin' all of the pastel shades and cute packaging.

S O F T  L U X E  M A T T E  L I P: in Martha Moo.
A product I was definitely excited to try out, seeing as the matte lip trend is quite popular, it was interesting to see Tanya's take on it.
Martha Moo is the perfect everyday colour. I would describe this colour as a deep 90S nude, a lovely brown/dark pink combined shade that can look amazing on any skin tone.
The packaging is gorgeous, I am LOVING the frosted glass-esque finish along with the gold detailing. It makes the lip gloss look alot more luxurious, definitely pleasing to look at!

The formulation is definitely something worth talking about. This creamy lip product is so easy to apply and it wears so beautifully. The texture is so lightweight and the pigmentation is intense. So intense that you really only need a teensy amount. I was amazed at the colour pay off. Once I applied this onto the lips, the lip cream dried pretty quick and whilst other matte lip products can feel very drying and uncomfortable, this truly didn't. 
I was able to get atleast a fantastic 7-8 hours of wear time before needing to maybe touch up the centre of my lips, since I was eating a lovely hearty meal along with some Coca-Cola. Trust me guys, this matte lip product lasts! But it gets better, along with an amazing wear time, this also has a lovely delicate vanilla scent which finishes off the product nicely.
For £5.99, this is something you need to really buy and try. The quality really felt high-end and for the price, I think I need to pick up the other two shades in the range. Tanya Burr Cosmetics is available to buy at Superdrug and Feel Unique.
