Cherryculture haul = dissapointment :(

My Cherryculture haul came... and I'm kinda dissapointed... I mean, the eyeshadows from NYX are great as per usual, but the false eyelashes and the round lipstick REALLLLLY dissapointed me. I really should stick with the Sassi ones.... These are the list of things that I bought in case you didn't read the other post where I listed my christmas present from my bf...
  • NYX Eyeshadow - Lustre
  • NYX Eyeshadow - Opal
  • NYX Eyeshadow - Cork
  • NYX Eyeshadow - Grey
  • NYX Pearl Mania - Silver
  • NYX False Eyelashes - #125
  • NYX False Eyelashes - #128
  • NYX Round Lipstick - Circe

I should elaborate and say that the false eyelashes #125 had glitter on it and it looked sooo fake and stupid. I hate it. I would never wear it unless it was like for halloween or something! The #128 is VERY long... that one I don't mind so much, it's just very dramatic. I definitely learnt my lesson about just getting human hair ones.

I bought the NYX round lipstick in "Circe" because I was looking for a really good nude coloured lipstick to wear with a smokey eye or something. I'm not exactly very fond of the formulation either, it was a bit thin and it streaked on my lips. Maybe it's cause I have pretty dark pigmented lips but it didn't look very nice on me at all.

The eyeshadows, I was very satisfied with. Same with the pearl mania, I loved it! My favourite colour there was cork and lustre.

Here are some swatches.... (L-R: Circe, Opal, Grey, Lustre, Cork, Silver)

  1. aww poor mama

    that's the only thing about ordering online that I hate.. when it's just "not quite" what you wanted, or it's way smaller than what it looked like in photograph.

    but your NYX shadows look fun -- u can never go too wrong with NYX. Pretty girl don't be too disappointed, it happens to all of us beauty junkies!

  2. Aww! I'm sorry for the lashes and the lipstick. :( Maybe you can find something to do with them. I know how you feel when you buy something online then get disappointed afterwards. Like Tia said, it happens to all of us :(

  3. :( ....but I love the metallic shadows!

  4. Thanks sweets! and yeah the husband is the one cooking and doing everything although i don't have the appetite to eat :/

  5. Really? Circe looks so pretty from the swatch! I'm sorry!

    Oh I bought NYX falsies in 109. I didn't know they weren't human hair >.< hahha. I'm gonna return them! Thanks!

  6. Well I have always wanted to go to Australia!! I would love to meet you!

  7. Hate it when this happens! Trial & error of life i guess... Thanks for your kind words sweetie! It means a lot... Hopefully I'll be back posting again...we'll keep in touch ~Kisses*
