This month's makeup bag comes in a silver holographic color with beach umbrellas on the front. I love holos and this is so cute!

What I got this month:

Too Faced - Hangover Replenishing Face Primer - 5 ml

Believe it or not, I have never tried this primer before even though I have heard so much good things about it! I am most excited for this product in this month's bag. It feels light on the back of my hand and it has a coconut scent which is delightful! I am intrigued to see if this primer is really hydrating and provides the full night's rest look that it claims!

BellaPierre Cosmetics - Banana Setting Powder - 4 g

This is a yellow toned loose powder which comes in a generous size. The powder feels really soft and I like the simple list of ingredients. I will sure put this to use!

theBalm Cosmetics - Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow in Matte Kumar - 0.5 g

I like theBalm as a brand because they make great powder products. I got the matte cranberry color and the texture seems quite soft which should be blendable. It will be a nice crease color if I sheer it out or it can also be a smoky eye color!

Embryolisse - Lait-Creme Concentre - 7.5 ml

You know it's fancy when there is a paper slip inside the box! Haha. This is a multi-function cream that claims to be "an all-in-one 24H moisturizer, primer and makeup remover". What? And makeup remover too? Now this is new. Interesting claims that this can work as both primer and makeup remover. I know french skincare is very good and this brand existed since 1950! I will probably use this as a moisturizer/primer since this looks like an pricey product.

Vasanti Cosmetics - Contour Eyeshadow Brush
I didn't know Vasanti makes makeup brushes! I can always have another crease brush. The hair of this brush seems a little long and it bends more when you blend. The packaging and mailing kind of deformed the brush, I hope it will straighten back after I washed it. I will use this for sure!

Points Item:
Juice Beauty - Sheer Lip Gloss in 05 Bikini - 2.2 ml
I redeemed some points for this lip gloss since I am into organic/natural makeup ingredients lately. This is a nude mauve sheer lip gloss with a little sparkles. On the lips this is VERY SHEER that I can't even see that I am wearing anything. It is quite watery too and it slipped outside my lip line when I was applying it. The biggest problem is the smell! It smells like pencils... wooden pencils! I am not very happy with this lip gloss.
