Eri's Top 10 Summer Makeup Picks!

categories: , , ,

Hi everyone!

As summer draws to an end, I'd like to share some of my favourite products that took me all throughout Christmas & heatwave season in a glorious haze of peach and rose!

1. Tarte Blush Bazaar
This amazing blush palette features 10 shades, all in large (or what I consider pretty large) size! There are 7 blushes and 2 highlighters, then one very interesting shade that is red, but has the luminosity of a highlighter - "Extraordinary". The pigmentation is great, so use sparingly! 

2. Stila Liquid Liner
The only downside to this is that the cap is a little bit loose, and it eventually ended up falling off and drying out :( But while it was still alive, it was incredible. I don't have a steady hand but this still worked for me, and survived much sweat and even showers!

4. Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipstick
WHAT IS THIS SORCERY? It's simultaneously creamy and matte with amazing pigment (swiped once), and didn't dry my lips out, and also tasted delicious and I want every single colour.

5. Tarteist Lip Crayon
Latergram was a perfect nude for me! Good pigment, good lasting power. Matched really well with the ABH Lip Gloss in Toffee.

6. Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette
I am aware this is a cult fav and I 100% understand why. Several months in and I feel like I'm still discovering new ways to use it! Good for everyday and also good for when you feel like being extra but still cute! Pigmentation is better with some colours but I usually use a damp brush and it's fine. Also it smells incredible.

7. Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Cream
I'll probably never buy another BB Cream aside from Jane Iredale & Skin79. However, I much prefer Jane Iredale in the heat because it melts a lot less easily. It also has the coverage of a full foundation without suffocating your skin! A small drop goes a long way.

8. Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss
I really love this lip gloss in Toffee because I love shiny lips - but it also is fully opaque and it doesn't sink into cracks! And it tastes like toffee ice cream.

9. Youngblood Setting Powder
Second skin: check. Pretty golden glow: check. No icky floral smell: check. Great coverage: check!!!

10. Ardell Dark Eyelash Glue
Their transparent version is good as well, but I prefer the dark, as I feel like it blends better with a thick upper eyeliner! I've also tested this on a rollercoaster - passed!


Hope you all enjoyed my little beauty picks! Which are your favourites? Do you have any of these products as well? Let us know below & stay tuned for Autumn beauty picks!

categories: , , ,

Hi beautiful people! Happy New Year to you all! 
To kick things off for 2018, I'm bringing you a lookbook featuring several pieces from the Australian indie brand, Peppermint Fox! They were kind enough to send me some of their gorgeous garments and so I've decided to show you how you can style them to reflect the Larme aesthetic we all know and love.
Peppermint Fox offers a beautiful range of accessories and garments, said to be inspired by traditional fairy tales and elements of the natural world. Prints are carefully designed by their talented illustrator and each garment is well-constructed and fully lined! I found their clothing incredibly comfortable to wear and they are machine washable too - a huge time and money saver! Here are the outfits I created!

Outfit one,

Outfit Rundown:
Beret: ebay
Choker: Romantic Standard (Harajuku)
Pleather Jacket: Temt
Onepiece: Peppermint Fox: Tea Emblem Milk Tea Print
Shoes: crayme,


Outfit two,

Outfit Rundown:
Ribbon: Craft store 
Choker: Wego
Top: A store at Sunshine Ikebukuro

 I hope you guys enjoyed this post! It was fun experimenting with Peppermint Fox's dresses, particularly as they don't have the typical Larme silhouette. Just goes to show with a little creativity and some cute accessories you can transform almost any item into a Larme outfit! Thank you to Peppermint Fox for the opportunity and thank you to my aunt for being a wonderful photographer!

The Petite Dollies Christmas Wishlist 2017

categories: ,

Hello everyone! Holiday season is upon us and we're excited! Today, all four Petite Dollies have teamed up to bring you a Christmas wishlist, filled with our favourite items for this season!

 1. Crayme, One Piece
I really love this khaki green colour and it's something I would love to try and incorporate more of into my wardrobe. I love that this piece is cinched at the waist, which makes it a very flattering, yet comfortable dress to wear!

2. Shelly De Titi Lingerie Set & Here
What girl doesn't love cute (and expensive ahem) underwear?! Shelly de Titi uses real silk so their underwear is incredibly soft! Yes please!

3. eHyphen World Gallery bonbon Cardigan
I'm travelling to Japan early next year, and this fluffy cardigan will get me through the cooler weather! As the cardigan is cropped, I can still wear high-waisted bottoms that may have a wider silhouette, without it looking too baggy. Cute and Comfy! Are you seeing the pattern here? haha!

4. HoneymiHoney Earrings
This year I've been really into experimenting with different earrings. I would love to add a pair of HoneymiHoney earrings to my growing collection.

5. Vannie Tokyo Wide-Leg Pants
The lace detail on side of these pants made me instantly fall in love! I really hope I can find a nice pair of flattering wide-leg pants soon ;A;

 1. Eat Me Harness
A good harness is a godsend, and this one would work so well with adding variety to an otherwise girly outfit! I enjoy how simple it is, but also appreciate the flattering crossover detail at the front.

2. Vannie Tokyo One Piece
This is great because it's so structured and versatile - I think I could wear it in a lot of different ways, from soft and girly to a more Basic French sort of look!

3. Fiction Tokyo Top
I'll always love velvet, and this is no exception. I like how loose and comfortable the sleeves look, while keeping the hem tucked to prevent a look that is completely baggy, and allowing a high-waisted look despite outerwear!

4. Swankiss Mermaid Peplum skirt
 Best of both worlds! I love mermaid skirts but sometimes they look very unflattering on my figure, so adding a waist-level peplum would be perfect for me! Faux leather is always amazing, so definitely on my list.

5. f.i.n.t. Fur Shoulder Bag
The macaron shape should really be enough to warrant an explanation, but I do adore the fur detailing and the tiny little bow! I also appreciate the dusty rose - the muted shade gives it a more mature, versatile edge.

 1. Melt the Lady Cardigan
I'm a sucker for fluffy knits and this cropped cardigan would look great with a high waisted skirt.

2. Crayme, High-waisted Skirt
The chunkiness of the knit in this skirt makes it stand out and also look very cosy!

3. Bubbles  Frill Coat
 This jacket has an interesting aesthetic with the ruffles and chunky metal. I think it could be worn with either girly or edgier styling.

4. Honey Cinnamon Backpack
  I love the tonne of ruffles on this bag, and the delicate tassels that are reminiscent of roomwear. It has pouches and a zip section on the inside for practicality too!

5. Eat Me Corset One Piece
I really like the structure in this dress, the high shoulders and circle peplum complement the smaller lace up and collar details.

1. Onespo Choker Necklace
Wide chokers have been my favorite accessory for a while and this one just hits it home with the incredible lion detail. Animal motifs are everything this season.

2. Onespo Beret
Berets are in and this is the best one I've seen? I would match it with a top with dark red or green details and black bottoms.

3. Wego Denim Jacket
A bleached denim jacket to complement the "quirky but edgy" sort of aesthetic that I have been into lately.

4. Jouetie Knit Top
Tan/beige + red + green is my current favorite combination in the world (thank you, Gucci). Add that to more florals and we have a winner.

5. eHyphen World Gallery bonbon Tartan Pleat Skirt
Plaid A-line pleated skirts are very in this season, but the heart buckle details on this one caught my eye!


So there you have our favourites for this season! What items are you hoping to see under your Christmas tree? Let us know in the comments!

On behalf of all of us at Petitedollies, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
