This month's bag is a light blue and white stripes denim feeling fabric bag. I think this feels very summer-y for some reason haha.

What I got this month:

LXMI - Nilotica Goddess Glow
Ok. I expect this to be a golden liquid highlighter but this is actually a rose/pinkish and gold duo chrome color which is super unique! I don't own anything like this and I am super excited about this shade! It also contains Niloctica which is a natural hydrating botanical from Uganda. Cool!

Illamasqua - Eye Pencil
Haven't seen this brand in a while! I got this in dark brown which is what I need because I have too many black ones already. The pencil is quite creamy (the product is soft) and it's also rich in pigment. I need to test out how long wear it is.

Jonteblu - Lip Liner
I have never tried or heard about this brand. I got this in a berry pink/plum shade and the formula is medium hard but very easy to swatch. I can't think of anything more special to say about it.

Yensa - Pumpkin Turmeric Radiance Polishing Mask
This mask claims to have so much good ingredients and it is "collagen boosting, soothing, and brightening". It says to smooth on a thin layer and wait for 5-10 minutes, then gently massage in circular motion with warm water for 30 seconds before rinsing. I love masking and will definitely use this!

SLMissGlam - Eye Brush
I like the look of this cute eye brush with the two toned bristles and the glittery handle! This will be a good brush for distributing eye shadow to the entire lid because of the loose soft hair.

Purple Chrome on Black


I always love a good duo chrome or even multi-chrome polish and this time I layered one on black for a darker look and I loved how it turned out!

For the base, I used this creamy and opaque black by Kiko.

Then I painted on the beautiful purple duo chrome glittery polish by Color Club only on the diagonal half of the nails and I loved the effect it gave!

Polishes used:
Purple - Color Club
Black - Kiko Milano
