This month's bag is a nude pale pink suede-like textured bag with lace trim. It somehow reminds of sexy lingerie, which I think is what they are trying to do. It's pretty cute!

What I got:

Luxie Beauty - Blending and Shading Eye Brush
I have tried Luxie's brushes before and I really like them. This one is duo-ended and they are very soft. The blending side is more for a darker shadow placement brush for me instead of a blending brush. But I like it overall.

Marsk - Loose Eye Shadow in Foil Again - 1.2 g
This color is a metallic grey to silver depends on how the light is hitting it. It's quite metallic and it's gonna be loud wearing as a smoky eyes shadow! I don't really do a crazy smoky eye look too much nowadays but will definitely try to incorporate it somehow in my more natural eyelook.

Trestique - Eye Pencil in Swiss Chocolate - 0.24 g

I am just in need of a new dark brown eye pencil! This one swatches so creamy and glides so easily on my hand. Not sure about the staying powder though. Can't wait to try!

Sand & Sky - Brilliant Skin Pink Clay Mask - 0.45 oz

I love face masks and I always use clay masks to detox. Other than clay, this one contains 
"aloe vera, mangosteen, and organic licorice that help tighten pores and brighten the complexion". Sounds pretty good!

Hey Honey - Face & Eye Makeup Remover - 12 mL
Oh I love it already when it says it's made with 100% natural ingredients. It's a gel that transforms into a cream when you rub it in. I will be definitely using this!

Dry Brush Chevron Tips


Wow! I can't believe how easy it is to creative this cool looking pink and purple dry brush tips. This will be a short one!

I used a cream color as the base and this one is Julep's Lillian. 

Then I started brushing a burgundy polish on the tips. I dabbed off some of the polish onto a piece pf paper and just went in without thinking too much.

Then I did the same using a hot pink polish.

I kept adding little by little until I am happy with the result and we are done!

Polishes used:
White - Julep - Lillian
Pink - Zoya
Burgundy - Mineral Fusion
