✖Banggood Review

Hey guys! Today I'm here with a Banggood Review! This is my first item from Banggood, but they have been very cooperative and are even letting me hold a giveaway which will be open soon!

Im here to review a coat they've sent me today! Its actually part of a larger haul that they've allotted me, but this came first, so I figured I'd review it alone.

This took around a week to get here, as it was shipped from the US warehouse. They also have a UK warehouse, for those living in the UK.

I chose this coat to review because it just looked so cozy and basic, a staple for a winter wardrobe. I was right in this regard! This coat is by FAR the most COMFORTABLE jacket I own?? I own a LOT of hoodies and jackets and coats, but this one feels like ive just wrapped myself in a throw blanket.

This is the photo advertised, and I can't see anything about this image that doesnt look identical to what I received. This product comes in lught grey, dark grey, and black. I obviously got black! It is measured in asian sizes, so as a size US medium, I got a size asian XL, which is a perfect fit.
There isnt a size chart to show you all, unfortunately!

This coat is sooo comfy i just cant get over it!! I will say though, that the zipper is somewhat of a pain. You have to REALLY make sure the bottom is zipped HARD or else it starts to unzip from the bottom, which is annoying to fix, Thats the only issue I had with this product, though. 

I will say that the material of this coat is really great! Its something of a cotton spandez mix, so liquids sort of just roll off of it and hairs dont stick to it as much, Its also not as prone to knitting, like cotton. Reminds me of under-armour but thicker.

The wool on the inside is really really soft!!!!!!! I recommend this item to anyone who needs a nice basic comfy coat for their wardrobe.

Appearence: ☆☆☆☆☆

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆

Quality: ☆☆☆☆

I definitely cant wait to review for Banggood again!!!
Thank you so much for reading this far, and thanks Banggood for the opportunity!

☆Wolftoof Review

Hello everyone! I hope you've had a good day/night! Tonight i'll be reviewing an item from a shop called Wolftoof! They specialize in customized T-shirts with fun pocket fabrics! 
I received this item quite a bit ago, but it was in the midst of Haunt season and I'm just now catching up ^^'

It arrived very quickly once ordered and I can' wait to talk about it.

I chose to review a Tropical pocketed shirt from Wolftoof, of course, but the store has TONS of variety as far as the design goes, from Pokemon to wolves. The shirts also come in SEVERAL other colors! 

This is the avert. photo for what I ordered:

This is very accurate and identical to what I received, although do keep in mind that all of these shirts are hand altered, as it is an etsy shop!

The size charts for the shirts is here:

As you can see, everything about this shirt is basically perfect. I chose to get a size Small in black, black because I can get away with wearing it at the salon without TOO much flak haha.

The placement of the pocket is perfectly where it should be in proportion to the shirt, and the pocket itself is sewn on very neatly. I can even tell its handmade, thats how clean it looks! 

There were no loose threads and I dont have any worries about this thing falling apart any time soon.
I have worn it ALOT despite not having time to review it until now. Like, I've worn it once or twice a week at least. 

I've always been a fan of these accent-pocket styled shirts, and I'm really excited about having one now! Getting this one actually inspired me to get a few more ahah. 

As for usability, I haven't actually tried to keep anything in the pocket? I dont see why it wouldnt work, its deep and sewn closed. 

Appearence: ☆☆☆☆☆

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆

Quality: ☆☆☆☆☆

I really love this thing? I honestly expected it to just be a cute thing to wear on occasion but this has become one of my actual favorite items in general.......ya,..

Thank you so much Wolftoof for sponsoring this review, and thanks to anybody who read this far! I hope you all give the shop a look. 

Im getting lucky, always getting nice items. I've never had to leave an overall bad review on anything??

✖PanicPOP Review!

Hey there! I actually didn't plan on reviewing this specific item today, but I happened to do a makeup look that sort of went with it, so here we are! Today I will be reviewing this Wildthing hoodie from the one and only PanicPOP, a very cute store with some great hoodies and general apparel. 

I didn't manage to snag a shot of the packaging of this item, but rest assured that it was wrapped neatly, and arrived very quickly! Like, it came the day after i confirmed the order haha.

This is how the hoodie is advertised onsite:

The size chart for this item is as follows!

As you can see, this hoodie is very adorable and true to advertised! 
I am a size MEDIUM generally when it comes to long-sleeved garments, although this website recommends an "extra small" for females and a "small" for males. I find this to be a silly thing to advise, as the sizing seems to be equivalent to normal adult sizes. Order as you normally would!

I noticed that note after I had requested this in a Medium, and was worried that it would be too large, but the size is PERFECT, I'm not drowning in it, but its cozy and comfortable. 

My favorite parts of this hoodie are the little horns on the hood! They are a little floppy, because they aren't stuffed, but they're small enough that they usually stay up on their own.

I really love this hoodie alot! I chose to do wolfy makeup, but its easily reminiscent to "where the wild things are" I think. I don't own many brown things, so this piece stands out in my wardobe! I have founf myself reaching for it alot when I need something to just cozy up in at home in my laptop haha.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆

This hoodie is great! Just as advertised, and on sale right now actually!! Go check it out.

Thank you guys for reading, if you read this far, and thank YOU Panicpop for sponsoring this review!!

☆ Review for Sheinside!

Hello you guys! I took a little while getting this up because I really wanted to try and get my photo taking space situated, but I just dont have any blank walls or anything to take photos with. Im going to try the white sheet method, but for now I hope you can ignore my very unprofessional and boring wall lol.

This is my first time working with Sheinside, though I can say already that they are a very respectable company. Before I even get started I'm going to let you know that every item I received was really great, and I put faith in that your experience with them will be the same, provided you purchase from Sheinside. 
These are the items I picked out, and they took about two weeks, or a little less, to arrive. 

These are the items I received, and if you'd like to go directly to their page on Sheinside, the links are in order here~

Ill start off with the Red Plaid cardigan!

I chose this item because it looked like something I haven't seen a lot of other bloggers review, and I am always a fan of the lumberjack look. Also the pockets are fake fur, which I thought was a cute, werewolfy touch, Here's the sizing, as it only comes in one:
This cardigan.....was unbelievably soft and honestly, if it had nothing else going for it, the softness would have made the whole thing worthwhile anyway hahah, I'm a very hypersensitive person when it comes to fabrics and this material wasn't a scratchy knit, it was VERY smooth and silky feeling and I can't rave enough about that. 

Even though it only comes in one size, it seemed baggy enough in my opinion to fit sizes small through large, although it was a LITTLE short on me in comparison to the site model, buts that's to be expected since i'm taller than average. 

I ended up looking like a vampire or something, (which usually happens when I freehand generic makeup for stuff like this), but as I mentioned earlier, this piece gives me a very wolfy vibe. Probably because it reminds me of lumberjacks which are in the woods and wolfs are also in the woods? Aren't lumberjacks usually werewolves?

Yeah!!! Anyway sorry that isn't part of the review I just needed to give yall the mental image i was picturing. Anyway, on to the pastel sweater!

I ordered the pastel sweater because I don't own very many pastel items, and I wanted to see how well I could pull it off! The sizing for the sweater is here:

This one also only comes in one size! Although it is meant to be a crop-top, I dont recommend this for anyone bigger than a size medium, I personally am a size medium and it fits JUST right, but I can't imagine the sleeves being long enough for anyone with bigger/longer arms.
This sweater is NOT as cozy as the cardigan unfortunately, and feels a little scratchy, but it is soft generally, just not comparatively. I think it's really cute and cant wait for an excuse to wear it out of the house,

It makes me feel like a super twink, really.

Lastly, the pants! I didnt get many photos of them, as I take my pictures alone and do not own a tripod (yet) but I managed to get a couple. 

The sizing for these is here:

These are the only item I received that do in fact come in separate sizes!
I personally wanted mine to be more of a Capri style, so I got a size SMALL, but if you'd like the leg to go all the way to your ankle I suggest ordering a size larger than what you wear.

These pants were a LITTLE thin for what I was expecting. They definitely feel more like polyester than cotton, but I enjoy the texture, Its almost the kind that you can imagine making a sound if you run your nails along it?? Anyway. As promised these have a drawstring, and the zippers are functional. Can't complain, I really needed some basic pants in my life.

Everything I recieved in this package was really great! I hope you all consider shopping at Sheinside, they have SO many awesome items to select from! I'm not just saying that, either, I've been shopping at this site for ages, way before I was *~~sponsored~~*. They really do have the best deals for lots of street styles and trendy stuff.

Everything I wrote about today is ON SALE! So check it out!

Thank you so much if you read this far, and thank you Sheinside for sponsoring this review!

☆ Pinkyparadise Review- Vassen Cloud Nine Violet Lenses!

Heyyo! Tonight I have a review for you all sponsored by Pinky Paradise! Pinky and Uniqso are probably my top go to shops regarding lenses, so I am very excited to talk about these. The lenses I will be reviewing are called Vassen Cloud Nine Violet, and they are perfect for anyone looking to find nice, OPAQUE purple lenses.

I received these around a week after I requested them.

Remember to use the coupon code "spectre" for a mystery gift at purchase!

This is the advertised image:

This is extremely accurate, although the purple in this stock image is a much pinker purple! The lenses show to be a bluer tone.

This was what my package contained! Somehow I misplaced the image of the mail itself.

This is the lenses when they were still in their safe packaging vile!! These guys are really great and secure but i always cut my thumb opening them :k

They look a little translucent in this photo, but you'll see in a moment just how vivid they are,

As you can see, they are bluer than their advertised photo, but I think they're just lovely. These are definitely some of my favorite lenses right now! I love how animated and cartoony the design is without the lenses being flat, boring and cheesy looking. The way the design allows for my underlying eye color to be seen through the lines coming out from the center really helps to assure any eye color can wear these without any blatant or ugly "seam" or "keyhole".

As you can see, these lenses are really pretty!! I cant wait to wear them for like 1345 cosplays.

Accuracy: ☆☆☆☆
(One star gone for the slight color discrepancy in the advert)

Appearance: ☆☆☆☆☆

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆

Quality: ☆☆☆☆☆

I really love these! I know of several character with purple eyes that I'm going to use these for, but a certain King of Games was the reason I ordered them.

As always, Pinkyparadise is one of the most popular lens shops for a reason! Be sure to give them a look if you haven't already!

 If you decide to purchase these lenses, or anything at all on Pinkyparadise, please enter my coupon code "spectre" for a mystery gift!
