Nintendo New 3DS review + first impression (Happy home designer bundle) ♡

So I have been waiting for the new 3DS to come out ever since it was announced for Japan and I almost gave up on it ever getting released in America but it is finally here! The new 3DS with all the cute faceplates everyone has been waiting for ♡ The new 3DS is going for about $219 on amazon. The release in america is actually an Animal crossing happy home bundle. So you get the new Animal crossing game, and the new 3DS for $219!

The bundle also comes with two animal crossing themed cover plates and one amiibo card. The bundle doesn't come with a charger though... I'm not really sure why the new 3DS doesn't come with a charger but you can purchase one here if you don't currently own one and are planning to get the new 3DS. Im really excited to play the new Animal crossing game even though its not a typical AC game. Happy home is actually an interior design game where you help your fellow villagers decorate their homes! Hence, happy home ~ 

Thats where the amiibo cards come in. Amiibo cards are a new form of Amiibo, they pretty much look exactly like trading cards but they are super pretty and sparkly! (I got to see some this summer at comic con! ) each pack is going to come with 6 cards and are going to go for $5.99. (you can purchase amiibo card packs here) The amiibo cards will allow you to have exact villagers move into your town which is actually really great and fun because I like knowing who will be living in my town! And if you are wondering yes, the game is 100% playable without having to buy the Amiibo cards! If you aren't planning on buying the new 3DS but want to play Happy home and play with the amiibo cards you will have to buy the Happy home / NFC card reader bundle.

The best (and my favorite part) about the new 3DS is the cover plates. There are so many cute ones to choose from! You can find them simply by looking up "new 3DS cover plate" here are a few of my personal favorites!~

♡  1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 ♡ 
They all vary in price depending on rarity.

This morning I went over to Gamestop and picked up my bundle and I was shocked of how pretty the box looks in real life! Its actually a lot smaller than I thought it would be too!~ I also bought 5 packs of amiibo cards (I had to stop myself from buying more... ; - ;)

So this is all the stuff that comes inside the bundle box. It comes with two different cover plates which is a good deal considering most cover plates are going for over $20. I don't particularly like the ones the bundle comes with so I won't be using them. The bundle also comes with some AR cards that I never pay attention to, one amiibo card, and of course the little guide for the new 3DS. 

After opening my five packs of cards here are the ones I was actually happy with! The top row are the holographic special cards. In every amiibo card pack there is one special card!~ The ones I don't want i'll probably trade away or sell. 

The cards themselves are extremely high quality and don't feel as though they will get ruined with use. They appear to be thicker than a normal playing card so it won't bend! The glittery or holographic cards are so pretty I can't wait to find a cute way to display them. I wouldn't recommend carrying these around loosely. 

As you can see I picked out the pink stripped cover plate. I think its super adorable ^~^ I really enjoy the feel of the new 3DS. Its slightly smaller than my older 3DS but I can't really tell the difference. 

Like I said, I just got my new 3DS this morning so I haven't used any of the new buttons or features but as a first impression, I'm very impressed. I was doubting if I should get the new 3DS or not and I'm so glad I decided to because I would have regretted not purchasing it!

As for the Happy home game, it looks really cute! I have only gone as far as creating my character but i really enjoy the fact you can now in fact change your skin tone and hair color. Once I play more of the game I will post a more in depth review. Its just important to remember that Happy home isn't an actual animal crossing game, its a spin off so in Happy home you can't really do the things you could do in New leaf or older AC games. Let me know if you guys would like a full review on the game~ 

I hope you all enjoyed my little first impression of both the new 3DS happy home bundle!  Remember, if you'd like to purchase the bundle you can do so here or if you'd just like to purchase the game you can do so here ♡  Are you planning on purchasing the new 3DS? Let me know down in the comments! 

Sugarpill Sparkle baby palette review & first impression ♡

I've been eyeing the Sugarpill Sparkle baby palette for so long now that I finally decided to go ahead and purchase it. The Sparkle baby palette goes for $34 and personally to me is well worth the money! My first initial thought when opening the box it came in was that the packaging was to incredibly beautiful I want to carry it with me everywhere! Im going to do my best to keep it clean (for some reason all my makeup ends up so dirty ; - ;) 

The names of the shadows on the palette are so adorable! Kitten parade, Frostine, Hotsy totsy, and Candy crush ♡ My two favorite colors are Kitten parade and Frostine! All the colors are available as singles on the Sugarpill website if you wanted just one or two of them~

Even the inside of the palette is so beautiful! The actual colors are a lot larger that I expected which is great! More product to love~ (grabby hands) I need to make room on my makeup counter because it needs to be displayed front and center its so pretty.

The colors are slightly shimmery and very pigmented! I tried them out with a brush on my arm with no eyeshadow primer and they still showed really well! Im 100% happy with my purchase and I can't wait to try out some new looks with these. I don't own a ton of colorful eyeshadows that are of good quality so I'm super excited! I will for sure be making more Sugarpill purchases in the future. I would compare the quality to Too faced which is one of my favorite makeup brands. The shadows feel very soft and glide super easily on your skin. Even without primer they are very wearable ~

They recently just started a nail polish line and I want to try them so bad! The colors all look so pretty and perfectly glittery. Most definitely will be my next purchase~ Have you tried anything from Sugarpill or have anything from Sugarpill on your wishlist? Let me know down in the comments! 

Tokyo Otaku Mode Favorites ♡

Recently i've been super obsessed with Tokyo otaku mode because of all the super cute things they have on their site ~ They sell a tons of imported goods from Japan... they literally sell anything you can think of! I compiled a list of things that are on my personal wishlist from Tokyo otaku mode ♡ 

Too faced makeup collection ♡

My latest obsession has been with Too Faced cosmetics. My little collection is growing! They were kind enough to send me a few products to add to my collection. My obsession started when I was gifted the original chocolate bar for Christmas last year. The colors are so shimmery and pigmented I absolutely adore it. If you guys would like individual reviews on any of these products let me know. 

I used to swear by my Nars orgasm blush but ever since I tried the Sweethearts perfect flush blush in candy glow I can't use anything else! It works as a highlighter / blush duo without making you look oily. It compliments the color of my skin really well and I think would look so lovely on just about everyone! The Too faced liquid long wear lipstick in melted peony is SO amazing! You can see me wearing it in the gif below (ps ignore all the glitter in my hair!) 

The two eyeshadow palettes I have from Too Faced are the original Chocolate bar and the Cat eye palette! The Cat eye palette is really cool because it features really lovely pastel colors along with wet/dry colors you can use as normal shadows or eyeliners. It also comes with a little booklet of looks that you can try out. Its really helpful if you're new with makeup! Plus, the shadow names are the cutest. The chocolate bar is great because there are shimmery colors along with matte. The matte ones are really pigmented which is usually a problem I have with matte shadows. They never show up on me for some reason... even with primer. But these are fantastic.

Here are some of the powders I own~ From left to right they are: Amazing face powder foundation, Candlelight glow highlighting powder duo, Milk chocolate soleil bronzer, and Primed & powerless priming powder. Ive been using the face powder, highlighter and bronzer daily! The highlighter is perfect to sweep across the top of your cheeks. It adds SO much to your face! I can't imagine doing my makeup without it now. 

♡ If you guys want any swatches of anything, let me know! ♡ Do you have any favorites by Too Faced that I need to try out? Let me know down below in the comments!

Kirby and the rainbow curse review ♡

I'm really happy to review this game for you guys because I've been so excited about this game ever since it was announced. I waited for so long!~ Kirby & The Rainbow Curse ($39) Is seriously one of the cutest games i've played in a long, long while. Sadly its only playable on the Nintendo Wii, it would have been really great on the Nintendo 3DS since the whole game is you using the stylus to draw rainbow everywhere.

Heres a trailer including some of the actual gameplay. I absolutely adore the textures they used in this game because its so different than anything they've ever done before. Its consistent and super colorful! The claymation makes it so endearing because you can see the fingerprints all along the characters and scenery. Its especially cute when Kirby gets launched against a wall and he flattens out because he's made out of clay.

One of the main reasons I really wanted this game is because its multiplayer and I really wanted to play it with my boyfriend. You can play with up to 4 people which is fantastic because if you're going to pay $39 for a game you want to be able to play it with some friends! I played a few levels alone and found that the game is actually much more enjoyable when you're playing with a partner because waddle dee actually helps out a lot. Although there are some short levels that multiplayer isn't allowed but they only ever last for 10-30 seconds and then the other players jump back in. 

I honestly cannot get over how pretty the game play is. The screenshots do it zero justice! Its so high quality and colorful it makes you feel really happy just playing it! I didn't want to take a lot of screenshots of the gameplay because I didn't want to give a ton away but most of the game is you using the stylus to guide kirby around. It was fairly easy at first and I was a bit worried that the game would go by quickly and i'd be done with it in a few days but now that i'm towards the end of the game it gets more difficult and its challenging in a good way. Theres things to do even after you finish the game. There is a music box feature where you can collect music from the game and past kirby games that you can listen to on your Wiiu which is perfect because the soundtrack for this game is adorable. 

Theres also a feature called Secret diary that you can collect pages from a Diary and the art for that feature is AMAZING its honestly so cute I don't know how anyone could hate it. Each level has a different page about the level (which is written by Elline) I didn't know about these during the first few levels so I need to go back and try and collect them all! I can't wait to read them in order. 

This game is actually Amiibo compatible! Amiibo are Nintendos brand new figures that are interactive with select games. Kirby and the rainbow curse works with the Kirby, Meta knight, and King dedede Amiibo. I have all three of them and i've tried all three with the game and honestly I could totally live without using them for the game ever again. You can only use each amiibo once per day (lame) and for only one level. They grant you things like extra health, more hit points, and attack bonuses which are all barely noticeable.

All in all i'm super happy with this game. I would buy it again in a heart beat! Its super fun and I would recommend it to anyone for all ages. If I had any complaint it would be that when you're playing with someone else you really aren't looking at the same screen... Since player one (Kirby) needs to be played on the gamepad with a stylus you are looking down 100% of the time while player two-four are looking at the TV screen. Which isn't honestly anything too big but I have noticed you can see more details on the TV screen than you can on the gamepad which is a small complaint, but you know!
