I have issues with cute things. I love them. When I heard about this collection, omg. I was devasted. 1) I was on a no-buy 2) I WAS ON A NO-BUY.
If you don’t know what a no-buy is, it’s essentially not buying anything makeup/skincare/beauty-related. However, I had luck on my side. I had won a bet against my boyfriend (side note: I ask him to monitor me during no-buys. Sometimes he does a good job…. …if you’re reading this… Hi, babe!) and he let me do one purchase. So, I of course, went with this collection for a couple reasons:
- the base cushions looked really light for me
- I’m not into blusher cushions
- I’m pretty sure the bronzer cushion shade would match me XD
I feel like these were safe choices (in the sense that I would use them) and I’m super happy with them!
In the entire collection, there were 6 lip tint shades but I only picked up five. The shade I didn’t choose looked really orange and I’m not too sure how often I would wear an orange lip.
From top to bottom: OR01, PK01, RD01, CR01, RD02. There is a slight scent to them. To me it’s smells like fruity wine (as if wine isn’t made from grapes >__>). It smells like wine and something else I can’t put my finger on. I wore Rd01 when I went out to dinner with my friend and it did not last (I had a chicken sandwich and a salad, so that might’ve been why). There was also very little staining.
Lastly, I ordered the eyeshadow quad in For Your Shadow. There are 4 different eyeshadow quads and I picked up the most neutral of them all.
I swatched these without any primer and I have to say, I’m really impressed with the color payoff. This is my second Korean eyeshadow palette and I really am liking it.
The lightest shade is almost my skin tone, though slightly darker. The rest of the shades come off pretty warm in my opinion. I really love neutrals so this palette has a good home in my collection.
Overall, I’m really happy with what I ordered and can’t wait to put these to use!
