Another round of cosmetics to try out.


It’s a rainy and windy day here, so instead of adventuring out, I took the chance to unbox some makeup I’ve received, and try it on!


A few days ago I posted a photo on Instagram showing that Too Faced sent me some amazing care packages, one of which was shaped like a vanity mirror with lights, and that was all to introduce the Better Than Sex Mascara.


I have been using it for a little while now, and I love it, but since I already have one, I will include this one on a mini giveaway at the end of this post.


The other package they sent is inspired by a fairytale book. Adorable!


It included 3 amazing heart shaped highlighters, one of which I’ve used today to do my makeup.


I think we can all agree that this product looks stunning.


There was also this Natural Love eyeshadow palette. If you know the brand, you may be wondering if even this new palette has a scent, but it doesn’t.


But I can’t complain, cause it has the most gorgeous colours (check out: Fairy Tale, Bunny Nose, Honeymoon and Hot & Bothered), and it has 30 of them!


Look at these swatches! The colours are so intense, the only thing I’ve noticed is that some shades tend to have fall-offs. But you can just wipe those away easily, so it’s all good.

I love Too Faced, and I honestly would recommend all of the products I’ve just shown.


Moving onto this subscription box called The KlogΒ I was happily surprised to see that it was all about Korean beauty.


This is what it included (I removed the packagings).


Since it had mostly skincare items, this morning I couldn’t wait to try them. I begun by cleansing my face with the Klavuu cleanser, which I liked: with just a small amount you can get it to foam up and cover your whole face. Washing it off it felt extremely squeaky, so I take it that it cleansed my skin pretty well. It didn’t feel tight, but rather soft.


Then I used the lemon gauze to get rid of dead skin. You know me, I love lemon, so this was nice to rub around my face. It did not sting, and although at first I was worried that it may be too rough for my sensitive skin, I had no problem at all. I really liked it!


Finally I used the Glow Creme to moisturise, and this was such a surprise. I could not get to pick it up on camera, but there is a slight pink undertone and a pearlescent look to it. Once applied, it looks like your skin has micro red sparkles everywhere, giving you a healthy and glowy appearance!


Next up on the list is Etude House: I used to be obsessed with this brand, so the fact that they sent me something did make me happy.


Here are the products opened up.


The one I was most impressed by is this eyebrow stick: it not only has the brown colour in one end, but also a tinted brush on the other, as well as a highlighting powder in the middle! This basically has everything you would need in one, which is very convenient.


The only thing I’ve noticed is that you have to apply quite a bit of pressure for the product to transfer onto your skin, but other than that, I love it.


The lipstick they sent me is such a gorgeous shade, and totally myΒ style (dark peach with a nude/brown tone). It’s matte, applies easily, and feels moisturising.


I’ve also tried the mascara, and I liked that as well! Here you can see my eyes with and without it.


Lastly, Jane Β – a brand I’ve never hear of before – sent me a few things.


My favourites were probably the bronzer and blush, which both come in the same packaging and with the same flower theme.


They are both absolutely lovely on the skin (not as intense as the swatches).


The eyeliner has a super slim tip, and I found it quite tricky to apply – not gonna lie. The colour is great, dark black, it does not move or smear, so good quality, just be aware that it’s not the easiest to apply.

I also tried the matte foundation and liked it a lot; I received the ‘fair’ shade and it matched me really well. Both consistency and texture are medium, so it made it easy to blend and to build up a bit where needed.


So here is the final look! I’m liking it! πŸ™‚



Thank you so much to everybody that joined. As you know by now I do frequent giveaways on here so even if you didn’t win this time, you may have more luck on the next one. πŸ˜‰

    I really love all the products you used in your post! I mainly wanted to talk about your YouTube post! β— β€Ώβ—  I’ve had similar experiences with aliens and ghosts, either I’m very paranoid or its real. Once my blinds started opening in the middle of the night, and even I heard strange noises coming from behind my bed. I just wanted to say that your not alone! πŸ˜‚ now about the MAKEUP

    I thought that most of your swatches were very bright and colorful, probobly to be used for spring time! (PERFECT TIMING) and the too faced pallets are all around my school! Every one is talking about the colors and how they compliment every skin tone. I know this comment isn’t very interesting but I really hope you at least read it! πŸ™β—•β€Ώβ—•

    – love

    Oh my god, those Too Faced packaging are so adorable. I’m such a visualizer, so the first thing that catches my eye when I’m looking for some MAKEUP products are their packages. Of course, the quality is the most important, but… the way these cosmetics looks… aawww *-*

    Oh man the Etude House mascara is an HG item for tons of K-beauty vloggers! I’ve been looking to try it out and I might just cave in since you recommended it :))
    It’s also quite a throwback to your earlier videos.I remember back in the day when you were into kawaii stuff and it led me to you. Not gonna lie, while I love seeing how your style morphs, I sometimes miss the cute, fluffy dresses you used to wear. c:

    Gosh, you look so stunning in those pics! I mean, you’re normally very pretty, but I don’t know exactly what it is (perhaps that your skin looks more radiant, or you look more awake, I can’t really tell) but you’re looking great πŸ™‚ but back to the products, I’m so envious! I’ve never tried Γ‰tude House, but it is my years-long dream, and I absolutely love Too Faced. I fell in love with the Natural Eye palette and those highlighters, but I’m waiting for them to come out in my country (they can be a bit slow, though, just last week they finally released the Peach palette -which I very gladly bought, since the colors are so pretty). And while I hadn’t heard before of the other products, they also seem interesting to try out.

    But well, I hope you’re having a nice day. Say hi to the pugs πŸ˜€

    I absolutely adore these makeup related posts, they are actually responsible for sparking my interest in makeup and beauty products in general. Now I’m willing to experiment with products and colours and go a bit beyond my usual mascara and black eyeliner, so thanks for inspiring me to do fun things!

    And, having said that, I can’t help but add MAKEUP πŸ™‚

    How do you store all your makeup? I keep mine on a little vanity in my bedroom, however my puppy constantly knocks against it and almost sends everything spilling into the floor. Do you have any makeup storage tips?
