I had such a good impression of the Etude House Berry Delicious Fantastic Color Eyes Palette when I first tried it out and we all know that sometimes opinions tends to change after trying out a product for a period of time. Although I don't wear eyeshadows on a daily and/or weekly basis, I have been using this palette in many different eye looks while practicing my makeup skills and I gotta say that I absolutely adore this palette! I love that the pigmentation is so opaque despite being a glittery palette and the quality of these eyeshadows are so amazing! Also the colors included in this palette is wearable on a day-to-day basis even though it includes a majority of pink shades.

 STRAWBERRY FONDUE | FANTASTIC COLOR EYES

Etude House Berry Delicious Fantastic Color Eyes is available in two palettes: Stawberry Fondue (consist of pearly, pink and brown) and Strawberry Mojito (consist of green, orange and brown). Each palette contains six trendy colors with various textures and it can be worn for all types of occasions.

I chose Strawberry Fondue because my eyeshadow collection lacks a lot of pinks and also the color combination of the palette looks the prettiest out of both Fantastic Color Eyes Palette.

Etude House Berry Delicious Strawberry Fondue Palette includes:
- Hazelnut Chocolate
- Berry Milk Chocolate is a
- Sugary Butter
- Cheese Berry
- Fresh Stawberry
- Dip! Dip!

 HAZELNUT CHOCOLATE is a reddish brown, it has a sheer pigmentation that is buildable to a deeper brown shade and it is the perfect transition eyeshadow color. The texture is smooth and soft and it had no fall outs upon application.

 BERRY MILK CHOCOLATE is a milky pink shade that I love using as a base. The pigmentation is sheer and buildable and it has a dreamy texture that applies smoothly.

 SUGARY BUTTER is a pearly creamy shade with absolutely no fall outs upon application which was very impressive despite being a glitter texture. I use this eyeshadow to highlight my inner tear duct and I love that it has a good color payoff with a sparkling effect.

 CHEESE BERRY is a hot pink with a glitter texture and I love using it all over the lid for that pop of color. The pigmentation is sheer and buildable, but the eyeshadow has to be layered for the glitters to apply evenly.

 FRESH STRAWBERRY is a strawberry pink with a glitter texture, it has an opaque color payoff that applies evenly, the glittery is so sparkly, but very pretty and when applied on the lid, it instantly brightens up the whole complexion. Fresh Strawberry is a lot more pigmented compared to Cheese Berry and only a little bid of eyeshadow was needed to cover the whole eyelid as it blends easily.

 DIP! DIP! is a glittery brown with an opaque color payoff and it is the most pigmented eyeshadow in the Strawberry Fondue palette. The texture is smooth, but it doesn't blend out as well as the others.

KYLIE LIP KIT KOURT K

Kylie Lip Kit in Kourt K contains one matte liquid lipstick and one pencil lip liner in a deep purple shade. The matte liquid lipstick is described as an extremely long wearing lip product that offers a high intensity pigment and moisturizing ingredients to ensure a comfortable wear and the pencil lip liner is described as an ultra-long wearing lip liner that has a creamy texture.

I am a huge fan of the Kylie Lip Kit's liquid lipstick formula, I love its' thin and watery texture that glides on smoothly, majority of them applies evenly and each of them wears comfortably for long long hours. As for the lip liners, I am not a fan at all because the texture is way too creamy, it applies smoothly, but it tends to get very messy.

FIRST IMPRESSION

I purchased the Kylie Lip Kit in Kourt K during their first few restocks and I wondered if they have re-formulate the liquid lipstick?! As the one I currently have is kinda horrible. Like always, I love the Kylie Cosmetics' liquid lipstick packaging, I adore the drippy design and I like that the packaging doesn't feel cheap and I especially love the vanilla cake scent, it's sweet and it smells delicious.

Now onto the the not-so-impressive part, the texture is thin and watery, but there is bits of thick chunks of products in the liquid lipstick. The pencil lip liner is ultra-creamy and it glides on smoothly, but the liquid lipstick applies patchy and uneven. When I first tried Kourt K, I thought maybe the patchy-ness will disappear once I have a second layer of products, so I applied a second layer to find that it turns even patchier and it looked even worst.

*sigh* I really wanted to like Kourt K because it is such a gorgeous dark purple color, but because the formula is so patchy, I find it hard to work around with even when I have lined my lips with the matching lip pencil.

The above lip swatch was done with two layers of the Kylie Lip Kit in Kourt K and I think it is probably the worst lip swatch I have done to date... *boohoo* ~

Today I am sharing with you two sets of the MAC Look In A Box that I have purchased during the Nordstrom's 2016 Anniversary Sale. I have always been a big fan of the MAC Look In A Box collection and I look forward to the release of these sets every year as they are so worth the money spent!

This year, MAC Cosmetics has released five sets of MAC Look In A Box in five different colour themed and I bought the 'Fun & Flirty' Kit which includes products for eyes and lips in pink shades and the 'Sunblessed' Kit which also includes products for eye and lips, but in neutral shades.

MAC LOOK IN A BOX: SUNBLESSED featured a selection of neutral-toned products. The set includes one lipstick in Sunblessed, one eyeshadow in Deception, one Fluidline in Blacktrack, one False Lashes mascara in False Black and one makeup bag.

The main reason of choosing the Sunblessed Kit was because it includes the Pro Longwear Fluidline in Blacktrack, I have wanted to try this product for a long time as I have heard that MAC gel liners performs amazingly, especially when drawing wings.

Another item that got me really excited about the Sunblessed Kit was the lipstick packaging, the colour of the lipstick is not one of the shades that I am loving right now, but the packaging reminds me of the MAC x Giambattista Valli lipsticks, it's so pretty!

MAC LOOK IN A BOX: FUN & FLIRTY featured a selection of pink-toned products. The set includes one lipstick in Cherry Blossom Girl, one eyeshadow in The Wrong Man, one lipglass in Only For You, one Haute & Naughty Lash mascara in Black and one makeup bag.

My favourite products from this set is the lipstick and the lipglass, I love wearing them together and I love wearing them on their own. Again, I bought it mainly for the lipstick packaging and for this set, I actually really like the colours included.
