Thursday Guest Post

Sparkle, Baby, Sparkle!

Hello everyone! I’m Karoliina from Bones & Lilies. Luna asked me to do a guest post and I was very happy, I love this blog! So here’s a little look I did today, just for you :)

DSC_0025

I used the new palette by Sugarpill. It’s called Sparkle Baby and it has a wonderful pastel theme going on. I was a bit hesitant at first, since I’m not the biggest fan of pastel shades, but the colours go so well together and have a gorgeous water color effect that I think I’ll be using only this palette for some time!

Sparkle Baby palette. From left to right: Kitten Parade, Frostine, Candy Crush and Hotsy Totsy. I really love how much effort Sugarpill puts into the palette design, the visuals are always different and have a theme!

I used Frostine, the lavender shade, for the inner corners and as a brow bone highlight. It looks a lot darker on the palette than on skin, with my skin tone it worked really well as a highlight. Frostine has a little bit of sparkle, but less than the other shades.

On the lid is Candy Crush, a light blue/aqua. It’s very sparkly and very light, a very pretty shade on its own, too. I’m also an avid Candy Crush Saga player so the name appeals to me ;D

For the crease I chose Kitten Parade. It’s a light peach colour with a gold shift. It’s the reason I originally was interested in the palette, just the name of the shade alone is great, and I love peach tones with a shift, like Sugarpill‘s Asteria and Fyrinnae‘s Rapunzel Had Extensions

To darken the crease further, I added a touch of Hotsy Totsy. It’s the darkest shade in the palette, a dark cool toned pink. It blends very nicely with Kitten Parade but I wouldn’t put it next to Candy Crush. I padded some Kitten Parade on top of Hotsy Totsy to blend it in better.

All in all I really like this palette. The water color like effect is something I like very much, and not all shades can be used for it. Sparkle Baby has the perfect light, pastel toned shades that have lots of sparkle to really bring your look to life in sunlight!

And one more artsy shot to show how the shades blend together nicely!

Review: Children’s Advil® Sugar-Free Dye-Free Suspension

press sample

Hi Skullies! I have a review for Children’s Advil® Sugar-Free Dye-Free Suspension! I received a bottle and some coupons from Smiley 360. :D

Official description
When your child has a fever, you know what it’s like to wait it out. Children’s Advil® Suspension reduces fever fast* – even faster than Children’s Tylenol®. It lasts longer*, too – up to 8 hours with just one dose. And Children’s Advil® also relieves aches and pains.

Where to buy
From CVS – 4 ounces for $6.99 USD.
From Amazon – 4 ounces for $5.99 USD.

Directions

  • Shake well before using.
  • Repeat dose every 6 to 8 hours, if needed.
  • Do not use more than 4 times in 24 hours.
  • Find right dosage on the chart. If possible, use weight for dosage; otherwise, use age.
  • Only use the measuring device that comes with the product to be sure you give the right dose. An ordinary kitchen teaspoon may not hold the right amount of medicine.
Weight(lb) Age(yr) Dose(tsp)
Under 24 lb Under 2 yr Ask a doctor
24 – 35 lb 2 – 3 yr 1 tsp
36 – 47 lb 4 – 5 yr 1 ½ tsp
48 – 59 lb 6 – 8 yr 2 tsp
60 – 71 lb 9 – 10 yr 2 ½ tsp
72 – 95 lb 11 yr 3 tsp

Packaging
It’s a white 4 ounce bottle that comes in a blue box. It has product information on the box and the bottle. The box and bottle both have yellow, red and black features with the logo.

Scent and formula
It smells like berries! Fumiko says it’s sweet and tastes like berries and it tastes good, not gross.

Ingredients
Active: Ibuprofen 100 mg (NSAID)* Fever reducer/Pain reliever. Inactive: artificial flavor, carboxymethylcellulose sodium, citric acid monohydrate, edetate disodium, glycerin, microcrystalline cellulose, polysorbate 80, propylene glycol, purified water, sodium benzoate, sodium citrate, sorbitol solution, sucralose, xanthan gum.

When I received this Fumiko was sick. Normally I just buy whatever store brand I happen to find. We were almost out of what we had, so I was really glad to get this. Giving Fumiko any kind of liquid medicine is a nightmare. She HATES the taste, it makes her gag and she usually gets a stomach ache. I’ve usually got to chase her down and corner her and then it takes me a good 10 minutes to get her to take it. This stuff is great. It’s dye free and sugar free and she likes it. I don’t have to fight her to take this, she takes it willingly. During the day she’s able to go to school and take part and function and not be a zombie, but at night she passes out cold and sleeps through the night. She gets horrible fevers when she gets sick and is just miserable with aches and pains and being tired and cranky. This keeps her fevers down and the aches to a minimum. This was a huge blessing to get! I will be keeping a bottle of this on hand for future sick times! I definitely recommend it, it works great! You might have trouble finding it in store. I can’t seem to find it, however it’s available online at several stores! Seriously pick this up. You can find their Facebook page here. And lastly you can get a $1 coupon here!

FOTD Alichino & Scarmiglione like Mallow & Morphine

The sun has been out off and on today! I wanted to do a look with Aromaleigh’s Alichino and My Pretty Zombie‘s Morphine blush. And so I did! I like them both very much. Also I tried something new! I applied my false lashes under my lashes instead of over. I must say it was easier to apply them and it looks better. I saw a video on youtube of someone doing it, though I can’t remember who it was. D:

Tiki Cat Puka Puka Luau Succulent Chicken

Review: Petropics Tiki Cat Puka Puka Luau Succulent Chicken Canned Cat Food

press sample

Tiki Cat Gourmet Whole Food Brand Cat Food Puka Puka Luau is shredded chicken breast prepared in chicken consommé for a grain free, gravy free, zero carb meal. Complete and balanced diet for all life stages. Great to feed solely or to supplement a dry food diet by adding the missing moisture and boosting the necessary protein and fat levels missing from kibble. Our chicken is free range, and free of hormones and antibiotics. Our chickens are also scratching and pecking on the ground. We do not believe the caged chicken practices are humane and we are against this as well. Our products are hand cut and filleted, hand packed, and canned fresh at the source. All agricultural ingredients are fresh and locally grown in Thailand. They are grown by natural human food-grade growers and are tested for pesticides, pathogens, heavy metals, antibiotics and other contaminants. None of our food ingredients are outsourced. Tiki Can also be an RX alternative, we are approved for many prevention and treatment diets.

  • Starch Free
  • Zero carb
  • Complete meal

Where to buy
From Amazon – 12 2.8 ounce cans for $17.88 USD.

Directions
Feed your adult cat 1 can per 3 pounds of body weight per day. Feed at room temperature and refrigerate unused portions.

Packaging
This comes in your typical canned cat food can. It’s a silver-gold with a pull tab on the top. The label is blue and white and features a tiki theme with a cat and tiki mask. The text and other features are black and purple.

Scent and formula
It smells and looks like chicken. It actually smells really good and it looks like shredded chicken breast in broth.

Ingredients
Chicken, Chicken Broth, Sunflower Seed Oil, Fish Oil. Added Vitamins & Minerals: Dicalcium Phosphate, Choline Chloride, Taurine, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Sulfate Heptahydrate, Ferrous Sulfate Monohydrate, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Nicotinic Acid (Vitamin B3), Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Manganese Sulfate Monohydrate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Copper Sulfate Pentahydrate, Riboflavin Supplement (Vitamin B2), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement.

So I received a can of this from Swaggable. I’ve seen this brand before, I think it was at a local Animal House pet shop. I’ve never purchased it mostly because of the cost. As soon as I opened this to take photos I had to fend Mochi off. It smelled great and apparently she thought so too. I couldn’t get it in her bowl fast enough. It looks and smells like freshly cooked chicken breast in chicken broth. Mochi LOVED it. Holy cow, she scarfed up the entire can. She normally only eats a tablespoon of wet food at a time. I was really glad to see this was gluten free because she tends to throw up when she has food with grains in it. This didn’t make her sick at all. No signs of stomach or poop issues. She kept trying to get the empty can out of the trash too. Overall Mochi was really happy with this food and so was I. I definitely want to get her some in the future when I can afford to. I told her I’d get her some for Thanksgiving. XD It’s a really healthy cat food and I definitely recommend it. It also comes in other flavors(different chicken and fish flavors) which you can find on Amazon. You can find other online and local retailers here.
