CherryCulture Memorial Day Sale

Just got an email from CherryCulture.

Just wanted to share this.

Have a beautiful weekend everyone!!!

MAC To The Beach Haul Part 1

I have been waiting forever since The Muse blogged about this collection back in Feb here. So this collection finally hit the MAC website on May 25th. I forgot about it until sometime during the afternoon and one of the lipglass that I wanted was already sold out!!! I was crying like crazy to my husband >.< .... I decided to try my luck in-stores but then I got an email from MAC for free shipping for any purchase so I checked out the website again and behold!!! The lipglass was back in stock!!! So basically, I placed another order.

I want to mention that I am now buying items that I will use instead of just buying things just because it is pretty to collect. I was originally going to buy 2 of the Marine Life Highlight Powder so that I would have 1 to use and 1 to stare at but in the end, I decided that I could put that money to better use.

2 Lipstick, 1 Lipglass, 1 Eye Kohl, 1 Lip Pencil.

Top: Lip Pencil in Life's A Breeze. Bottom: Eye Kohl in Float On By

Lipglass in Splashing

Pretty packaging.

For the next 2 pictures, please excuse my chipping nail polish/nail.

Lipstick in Beachbound (Glaze). Very pretty for the summer. I like it so much I ordered a backup. XD

Lipstick in Lazy Daisy (Lustre). This picture reminds me of the Viva Glam Gaga.
Left to Right: Lazy Daisy, Beachbound, Splashing, Float On By, Life's A Breeze.

Since I started to get into makeup/skincare, my collection has increased dramatically. I went from (A) a simple Caboodle's case to (B) the Caboodles + a 6 drawer Sterilite container to (C) the Caboodles + a 6 drawer Sterilite container + the TS-22... This does not include the items that I use daily that is on top of this (I tried to use the drawers like Richie did here) and in the bathroom. It is getting a bit scary to me. The hubby does not complain but I need to figure out what's the next step that I can take to organize because everything is overflowing again. Anyone got suggestions?

VOV Castledew Diacut Eyes Swatches

So I received my gmarket order about 2 weeks ago but did not have time to do the swatches till now.

I got the Castledew Diacut Eyes in BE905 and BE906. The box for BE906 is in white. I'm not sure if it is limited edition or just a special package compared to the typical box on the right. Also pictured but not swatched is the Castledew Watershot Foundation.

BE906 & BE905

BE905 - Blackish Smokey. So pretty!!!
Colors from left to right:
Top - Skin Gold, Natural Peach, Soul Silver.
Middle - Khakish, Brownish, Navish.
Bottom - Blackish Khaki, Blackish Brown, Blackish Black.
What is up with the names?!

Swatches of BE905

BE906 - Airy Bloom Dia. Gorgeous!!!
Colors from left to right:
Top - Airy Sugar, Airy Mint, Airy Shine.
Middle - Airy Blue, Airy Yellow, Airy Peach.
Bottom - Airy Lavender, Airy Gray, Airy Brown.

BE906 w/o flash... Sorry, I don't have good daylight in my apartment.

BE906 w/flash. Since these colors are lighter, it was really hard to get a good picture.

I love Castledew! The packaging reminds me of Jill Stuart items but is more affordable.
