How is your weekend? Hopefully you're relaxing and having fun=D
I thought I'd show you what I bought on cosmetcis over the last 3-4 weeks and give a few first impressions. It contains Korean as well as Western cosmetics.
I went to Kiko last week because I had a 20% discount card. I actually wanted to get three eyeshadows I saw on twitter but the colors looked a bit different in real life so I opted for other colors. The shades I bought are 225, 230 & 234. I really like the clics system and I actually got the case for free ^^ I used them already once and they have a nice consistency and pigmentation.
The two nail polishes are the Quick Dry nail lacquer in 829 a nice dark purple shade and the nail lacquer in 280, a perfect orange shade for halloween. Already used the dark purple shade, it's really nice. I like nail polishes from Kiko in general.
Cosmetics from the drugstore.
Catrice Highlighting Powder from the Check & Tweed LE: It looks really nice but sadly the highlight doesn't really show up on the face.
Catrice Velvet Lip Colour 03 Brit Chick also from the Check & Tweed LE: A very nice browny colour for the fall and the feeling on the lips is really nice.
Catrice Nailpolish in C01 Feathery Fact from the Feathered Fall LE: Awesome looking topcoat. I'm still undecided what to pair it with.
p2 blazing treasure blush in 010 destiny & 020 fortune from the Meet me in Venice LE: Don't they look gorgeous?! I'm kind afraid to use them because it will destroy the marvelous design...
wet'n'wild lipsticks in Just Peachy, Rose-bud, Cherry Bomb & Sugar Plum Fairy. I really wanted to try them out since I heard good reviews online. And I must say they are awesome. I wore the purple one for a night out and it stayed on almost the whole time. They have a semi-matt finish so they are a bit drying. I bought them on amazon. However I had to make an order for 25 Euro or above in order for them to be shipped so I decided to buy two products from sleek.
One of the sleek products: the i-Divine oh so special Palette. I already own one palette from sleek that I love and this palette didn't disappoint me either. The pigmentation is good, it has shimmery and matt shades and I personally like the color scheme. Plus, there's a matt black shade!
The second sleek product: The oh-so-hyped blush in Rose Gold. This picture doesn't do the blush any justice. The colour is marvelous, I know why it's so hyped and loved. Just one thing: the packaging. I don't know if I'm the only one but I always struggle with the sleek packagings and I already made a scratch in this blush because I was trying so hard to open it and it suddenly sprung open -.-
|Swatches: Bourjois Color Edition, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet, Rimmel Kate Lipstick 101, Rimmel Kate lipstick 02, Bourjois Rouge Edition 12 heures|
My haul from Paris. I was really excited I could finally buy products from Bourjois and Rimmel, because both brands are not availabe (anymore) in Germany. I was even lucky the second time I bought something because there was an event when you buy 3 bourjois products you receive 20% discount.
Rimmel Lipstick by Kate in 101 and 05. The lipsticks with the red packaging have a matt/semi-matt finish and the ones with a black packaging have a creamy finish. They both have a distinctive smell. I wore the black one a few times and I quite like it.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 02 Framboujoise. A lip cream with a matt finish. An amazing product, I love that.
Bourjois Rouge Edition 12 heures in 28 Pamplemousse pour p'tite frimousse. A nice coral shade.
Maybelline Color Show Bleached Neons in 242 Neon Heat. Those were already sold out in Germany so I took my chance and got one shade.
Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation. I read a lot of good reviews of this foundation so I was really tempted to try it and it really is a nice foundation.
Bourjois Color Edition 24H. I sadly don't have the color name anymore because it was on the seal. It's a cream eyeshadow that turns into powder in a rosy-taupe shade.
I was out of my beloved Skin79 VIP Gold Super + BB Cream and I looked around where to order and then I saw that Skin79 Germany had a sale. That was super convinient because it wasn't really more expensive than ordering it from Korea and I received it 2 days after placing my order. They also gave me a sample of every BB Cream. Wow. Even of the BB Creams for men XD
The Gold version is still one of my favourite BB Creams, especially for the winter and I'm happy I have it again. A review will follow soon. I also wanted to try out the green version because from the description it seemed like it could fit my skin type so I got a small size.
My order from roseroseshop. I had an eye on the mizon products for a long time and roseroseshop had them for free shipping so I took my chance and ordered them. I got the Mizon AHA 8% Peeling Serum, Mizon AHA & BHA Daily Clean Toner and Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream.
I was dissatisfied with the results from the Etude House Wonder Pore Freshener and wanted to try out an AHA/BHA Toner. So far I really like the Mizon products. I always give skincare about 3-4 weeks before I judge the effects but it seems like they could become favourites.
As always roseroseshop gave out quite a few samples. I'm especially looking forward to the Argan Treatment Oil because my hair is dry and damaged...

|Aritaum Honey Melting Tint|
|Aritaum Honey Melting Tint in peach crumble|
And finally my order from testerkorea. My first time ordering from that side and I'm quite satisfied.
The sheet masks from Tonymoly looked so cute, I had to buy them.
The Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask was on my wishlist for a long time and I hope it can get rid of my blackheads for good.
I chose two versions of the Etude House Every Month Cleansing Foam, 3 Apple&Tomato and 5 Green Tea. I needed a new cleanser for the morning and those series seemed like a good option. I already used the Apple&Tomato one, it looks quite promising.
The Aritaum Honey Melting Tint is another item from my wishlist. I got it in peach crumble and it smells divine.
And of course I got samples. Among them another Skin79 BB Cream XD
That's it for my gigantic collective haul. You would think my wishlist is shrunk by a good portion now but I keep adding stuff "^^
