FabFitFun Sampler Box

I hear a lot about FabFitFun and see the ads everywhere, but I never thought about subscribing because I tend to only want the beauty stuff and less of the other products. I jumped at the chance to explore the Starter Box though when my friend offered me a code.

Most of the products that came in the box was make-up except this Gym & Juice bag from Private Party. I thought I wouldn’t use it, but it was strangely decent for carrying my dog around.

This dr. brandt PoreDermabrasion exfoliator was worth the box price as it left my face feeling clean and smooth.

This Doucce eyeshadow palette is smooth and creamy and also customizable. My friend and I received different palettes, so we’re actually trading some of the colours with each other.

The last product I haven’t tried yet, but is a Spongelle body wash infused sponge.

All in all it was totally worth the $8 that I spent on the Starter. On a side note, I kind of forgot to unsubscribe afterward, so I will be receiving the Spring Box.

Sephora + Moschino Bear Lip Gloss Chain

I saw that this Moschino Bear x Sephora lip gloss thing was back in stock so I couldn’t resist getting my hands on it.

The gold bear fits any of the lip glosses that it comes with. Though I would never wear this as a chain, I love it as a decoration on my vanity. It is actually plated with 24k gold.

The lip glosses themselves are super pigmented and long-lasting without any sticky feeling. 

My favourite is the Hollywood guilded copper gloss as it looks elegant on a night on the town.

What is your favourite of the lips colours?

Soft Miracle Foot Peeling Pack

I heard a lot about foot peels in Bunz Makeup group, so I thought I’d get this Soft Miracle Foot Peeling Pack from the Korean grocery store. 

Inside were two pouches of liquid that I poured into these “gloves” for my foot. I wore them for 90 minutes. I assumed they did nothing because I couldn’t see anything after 90 minutes, or 1 day or 2 or 3.

However, after around 5 days, the bottom of my foot started to look wrinkly. Then they started to peel, a lot. I would leave skin everywhere! I decided to spare you the gross photos. This peeling happened for approximately 5 days before it was done. Some parts of my foot felt a bit sensitive during, maybe because I couldn’t resist picking at it.

However, the bottom of my feet are now baby smooth and no cracks in sight! Not sure how long this will last, but it’s worth the process once in a while.

Pokemon x Tony Moly Sheet Masks

I have a lot of the Tony Moly x Pokémon collection, but I couldn’t resist getting one of each of the sheet masks. They’re limited edition, but still available on Amazon.

I used the Charmander one recently. It took me for a while to actually use one because the packaging is so cute! The sheet mask itself unfortunately does not actually have a Charmander head (that would be funny though).

It had the pleasant citrus smell of grapefruit and did noticeably brighten up my skin right after. I haven’t tried the rest, but I’m looking forward to it as I follow this year’s resolution of using things up!

Shu Uemura x Mario Fire Flower Lip Balm

The Shu Uemura x Mario limited edition was so irresistible that I couldn’t not get this Fire Flower lip balm before the whole collection disappeared in store.

The packaging is adorable and has the flower it is named after!

The colour is a nice pink-ish red.

On my lips it was moisturizing and pigmented. I was actually surprised that even through some drinking that it had staying power. Especially since this is meant to be a coloured lip balm!

BH Cosmetics Haul

A while back, I did a huge BH Cosmetics haul because everything was on super sale. All these things together costed around $50.

This Take Back Brazil palette was full of pigmented eyeshadows that are perfect for the base of an eye look.

This 12 piece brush set also came with the palette for free! The brushes are soft and blend make-up well. I find the burhs heads fall off the stick when they are washed though, so it requires some regluing to fix it.

I also grabbed this beautiful unicorn highlighter kit!

I want to learn how to contour better, so I also got a contour kit.

Lastly, this HD Brow Pencil was only a buck but super fine for precision.

Shu Uemura x Mario Travel Set

I love the entire Super Mario Shu Uemura collection and I totally couldn’t resist adding this travel set to what I already had.

Inside was a lip tint and cleansing oil mini as well as a pouch and eyelash curler! I coincidentally also was starting Super Mario Odyssey when I received this in the mail.

The beautiful cosmetic pouch has tons of pockets for all sorts of storage. It perfectly keeps any glass serum bottles protected so is good for travelling.

The best part of the set is this gold eyelash curler with the signature Power-Up star. Shu Uemura’s eyelash curlers are some of the best around and this is such a beautiful touch!

Moschino + Sephora Bear Eyeshadow Palette

I wanted this Moschino + Sephora eyeshadow palette since the first announcement. I even tried on its August release date, but it sold out quickly and was removed from the store. I thought all hope was lost. 

Then one-day last month I got an e-mail notification that it had been added back to the store. I logged on my computer and grabbed it in that instant. The bear just screams at me as a thing I need to have. 

Inside the shadows are beautiful. Most of them are shiny, but there are some mattes to use with the shimmers. It even comes with a booklet on how to use some shadows together. 
I swatched it lightly because I didn’t want to waste the precious shadows and it was very pigmented. The shimmers are so beautiful that photos don’t do it justice. This was totally worth the impulse buy.

I did my holiday party look with mostly this palette! It really made my eyes pop.

I bought one of those lipsticks with a flower inside

Sometimes I fall for those stupid sponsored posts on Facebook, where it shows a beautiful life-changing make-up product. I don’t even remember what site I bought this from but it was $8 and took around 4 months to arrive. I thought it was lost, or just never shipped.

The packaging itself is pretty, the lipstick itself is clear, but supposed to turn into a colour once applied.

However, I found that it didn’t really do much in terms of colour my lips, but give it a sheer gloss.

Oh well! Sometimes you just get what you pay for.

Modern Renaissance

After reading all the hype online, I had to get myself the Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette from Anastasia Beverley Hills. It comes in a soft velvet case.

The colours are all warm tones. It’s perfect for everyday looks. I’m currently very into pinks and oranges as they are way more interesting than generic neutral tones.

A little swipe goes a long way as it is very pigmented.

What kind of looks have you pulled off with your Modern Renaissance palette?
