Hello! So, is this a good makeup beauty box? I haven’t seen a wonderful makeup box yet so I still had high hopes for this. Especially when the official box description promises this will be the best yet!
Read on for a quick review of the box.
Color World Double Cover Concealer 1.5g, RRP $14
I believe I’ve received the shade Beige. It looks pretty dark but it’s perfect for under eye circles. The orange tone of this concealer seems to be just right for mine! I’ve worn this on a night out and it did stay on very well and did not feel dry. Most of other high coverage concealers would feel dry. So I’m pretty happy with this!
Dr MJ Real Mucin Restore Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ 10g RRP $54
How many pluses do we need here 😛
Anyhow, I was pretty excited about this product. I do not own any bb cushion packs. So I opened this and swatched this with a cotton pad.
The colour is about 5 to 6 shades too light for me.I’m a NW25 or thereabouts.
It’s a shame I couldn’t make use of this pack. As even the swatch feel good on back of my hand! I can only imagine this being amazing on the face given the right shade was received. Oh well, you win some and you lose some.
Shara Shara Skin Light Up in Gold Beam RRP $11
Hehe it took me 5 mins to work out where the highlighter was. I kept twisting it but I couldn’t see anything coming out of the sponge tip! Yes I didn’t read the info card 😛 when I did find the cream stick, it was the most pretty cream highlighter! This is very similar to the Peripera Heart Glow Stick I’ve received in the Thanksgiving box collection #2.
Shara Shara Tinted Style Lip Gloss in Shimmering Sunset coral 4.5g RRP $11
Right! This shade looks pretty scary as swatched. But it can look pretty nice when worn sheer on the lips. It shimmers beautifully 🙂
Shara Shara Drawing Brush Liner 1g RRP $9
I was very happy seeing a brush liquid eye liner. I don’t use gel liner nor pencils. I was hoping this will be dark and has good colour pay off.
But this is really disappointing in terms of pigmentation. It is so sheer and maybe too natural looking for me. I like my liners to be blackest of blacks and lasts all day. This is far from what I like 😦
Oh well! Total meme-retail value of the box is $99, the cost of the box is $23 plus shipping. Not a huge value box, but the Cushion pack is $54 on its own! It really is a shame that I cannot make use of it.
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day 🙂
