This month's bag comes in a big red lips on a canvas fabric. It's pretty cute! It would be good for storing lip products!

What I got this month:

NYX - Whipped Lip and Cheek Souffle in WLCS02 Plush - 8 mL
I really like the color I got! It's a very wearable pink. This is a light weight whipped texture lip gloss and it feels velvety on the lips. I like this kind of texture and finish. It stays velvet and it's not too glossy. I also really like the shape of the applicator! But it might be a bit too sheer for the cheeks when blended out.

Makeup Forever - Aqua XL Eye Pencil in Matte Black - 0.8 g
I am excited to try this eye pencil out! I have heard about it on other social media. It swatches easily and creamy. I waited for a few minutes and tried to wipe it off with a piece of tissue and I had a hard time taking it off! Impressed!

Trust Fund Beauty - Nail Polish in What's a Budget - 17 mL
Yay for nail polish! I like this brand because their polishes are 10 Free! They come in a good amount too comparing with other polishes. I really like this mint color and I am excited to do a manicure with it soon!

Luna - Eyeshadow in Jace -1.5 g
This shadow feels so smooth and creamy! I am actually quite impressed since I haven't tried anything from this brand. It blends nicely on the back of my hand too. This color is quite peachy and I think I can also use it as a blush!

skyn ICELAND - Glacial Face Wash - 20 mL
This claims to be a mild foaming face wash that makes your skin feel fresh and hydrated. I will put this to good use for sure!

Holo Gold and Teal Stamping


Here's a quick manicure inspired by the Tarte's Wipe Out Color Correcting Palette. I love Tarte as a makeup brand and they have really cute packaging all the time! 

The base color is a champagne gold holographic polish by Julep, called Ginger. I love the fine holo of this polish.

Then I simply stamped on a wavey pattern with a teal green color by Collistar. After applying top coat and we are done!

Products Used:
Gold - Julep - Ginger
Teal - Collistar - Verde Glamour 532
Stamping Plate - Born Pretty Store

Glossybox June 2017 Unboxing & First Impression


Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription with 5-6 luxury products which costs $21 USD per month. There is also a little discount if you subscribe to a longer period of time.

Click HERE to join Glossybox!

What's in this box:

First, I have to rant about this box because there are 2 out of 5 items that are a repeat from April and May 2016 - the face serum and the moisturizer. You can check my past Glossybox unboxing HERE. I am quite disappointed about this and have not be pleased by Glossybox for a couple of months now. I might not continue my subscription after my prepaid 6 months plan.

The Creme Shop - The OMG Brush 
This is probably the most exciting product for most people receiving this box because it is rarely for subscription boxes to include these kind of toothbrush shaped makeup brushes. I am quite impressed by the feel of this too because the bristles are very dense and soft. It will be my first time trying a brush in this shape and I can't wait!

Bang Beauty - Cream Color - 3.5 g
This is a cream product for eyes, lips, and cheeks. It has a metallic look and can also be a highlighting blush. I like cream blushes and this one feels very smooth to blend. It doesn't feel greasy on the skin. It is quite sheer for the lips so I think I would mainly use this as a cream blush.

Julep - Nail Polish in Lindsey - 8 mL
Yay for nail polish! I love Julep already and I am happy to get this gorgeous coral color! Julep's polishes are 5 free and vegan. I love shades like this for the warmer months!

Talika - Photo-Hydra Day - 30 mL
This is a repeat item! >< It is a face moisturizer with hyaluronic acid and it claims to provide a summer glow. It is a nice moisturizer but I am just not happy that it is a recent repeat.

Biossance - Rose Face Oil - 4 mL
This is another repeat of a recent box! It contains rose oil and vitamin C for brightening and provides antioxidant. Other than being a repeat item, it is a good deluxe sample skincare.

Green Chevron Tips on White


This combination of green and white chevron manicure reminds me of the uniform of cheerleaders! Don't you think?

For the base, I used a nice smooth white polish by OPI.

Then I free-handed the chevron tips using the brush from the bottle from this gorgeous teal-green colour by Collistar, an Italian cosmetic brand. You can see that the edges are not perfect but it was alright because I was planning to cover them with glitter!

Then I added some gold glitter along the seam lines and applied top coat.

Polishes used:
White - OPI - Alpine Snow
Green - Collistar - Verde Glamour
Gold Glitter - Julep - Oscar
