When I got home today, I went into my email to check on my tracking numbers from my cyber Monday orders. My stila order has been lagging on shipping and delivery even though I ordered from there first so the past few times I’ve checked, nothing has shown up. But today when I tracked my order, it said: delivered. I did a double take and started looking around for packages but didn’t find any so my sister said, “it’s probably still outside.” I go out to check and lo and behold it’s there! Slightly frozen, but nonetheless delivered. I was super excited to open this:
And finally, onto the makeup!
^mini smudge pot set $14
Has four colors: black, cream, purple, dark purple. The pots are small but they’ll probably take me a while to go through so I’m happy! A little brush was included but I probably will toss it because its too small and not the right angle for lining.
^shadow pans in Kalahoo and Batura. They’re both matte shadows. Kalahoo is a light brown, perfect for the crease. Batura is a dark purple shade ( I know, I love purples,) and will be great in the outer V corner.
^I got three lipglosses.
^First is a lipglaze in sweet orange. It’s a bright coral.
^Next is a stain type gloss in ecstasy. When I ordered this, I thought it was a purple but here and in this lighting it looks brown. I’ll have to see it in the light tomorrow to see what it really looks like.
^lastly is this pretty 24k gold lipgloss. I know it looks ridiculous because of the yellow color but its pretty sheer and I’m only planning to layer the gold flecks on top of a dark red lip for the holidays so its perfect.
I also got this this cat eye talking palette set. It comes with a shadow quad (of full sized pans) and a liquid liner. The colors are perfect for a smokey eye. I love using tan color browns to do a smokey eye. The liner seems a bit flakey and not intense enough so I will probably not use it much.
I also got this summer in December set for $14! It comes with 4 full sized products including: mascara, lip and cheek stain, bronzing gel and a highlighter.
^The pan was a little loose from the packaging so I’ll have to glue it tomorrow but besides that, it’s a great highlighter.
Sorry for the weird corner dot but that’s what it looks like when you squeeze it out of the bottle. I’m not sure how to use this yet but I’ll probably use it as some sort of liquid bronzer.
^It was so cold, the mascara froze lol. Hopefully it will look less weird when thaws a little.
^This is my main reason for buying this set. I wanted to try one of these lip/cheek stains but didn’t want to try it for full price ($22) I really like this! Its like a thicker version of the lipglazes. I’ll try it out tomorrow.
Finally, here is everything:
I have a second order on the way. I’m really excited now. In the next few days my packages should start arriving!
