Stila Eye Shadow Trios

I got these Stila Eye Shadow Trios at the same time as the Eye Shadow singles, intending to fill the 8-pans compact. And then somewhere in between all the moves, they got boxed away until now. Ha. There are several of these trios and I picked 5 I most likely will wear: 02 Rocker, 03 Venus, 04 Bella, 07 Ethereal, and 08 Gilded.

Sothys Secrets de Sothys Eye Contour Serum

After Astalift Nurturing Eye Cream, I tried Suisse Programme Caviar Repair Eye Complex for nighttime eye treatment but it wasn't moisturizing enough, so I moved on to this small satchet Sothys Secrets de Sothys Eye Contour Serum instead.

Clarins Advanced Extra-Firming Eye Contour Serum

After finishing my full size bottle of Boscia Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment (which took forever even though I used it rather liberally!), I moved onto this 3mL/0.10oz sample tube of Clarins Advanced Extra-Firming Eye Contour Serum.

Clarins Vital Light Serum

Continuing with my serums kick here ^.^ This 3mL/0.10oz. sample tube of Clarins Vital Light Serum took me a tad longer to use up than the Phytomer ones, 5 days.

Phytomer Hydrasea Ultra-Moisturizing Polarized Water Serum

I think I used up this 3mL/0.1fl oz. tube of Phytomer Hydrasea Ultra-Moisturizing Polarized Water Serum in all of 2 days, so this will be a quick review ^.^

Castledew Diacut Eyes 9 Colors Part IV

I've been collecting these Castledew Diacut Eyes 9 Colors for a long time so even though I wasn't too thrilled with the new BE906 Classic Gem, I picked it up anyway.

Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow Part II

Almost a year after I reviewed the Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadows in #1 Metallic Beige, #2 Metallic Peach, and #5 Metallic Purple, I finally got to the other 4 I have: #3 Metallic Bronze, #6 Metallic Taupe, #7 Metallic Grey, and #10 Metallic Lilac.

Of the original 8 colors available as listed below, I now have all except for #9 Metallic Black. Note their names are different on the back of the pot versus online -- they've been discontinued but you can still find them on Amazon or E(vil)bay. They also skip numbers.
- #1 Metallic Beige (Pearly Golden)
- #2 Metallic Peach (Golden Peach)
- #3 Metallic Bronze (Golden Taupe)
- #5 Metallic Purple (Purple)
- #6 Metallic Taupe (Taupe)
- #7 Metallic Grey (Taupe Silver)
- #9 Metallic Black (Black)
- #10 Metallic Lilac (Lilac)

Top row: #3 Metallic Bronze and #7 Metallic Grey.
Bottom row: #10 Metallic Lilac and #6 Metallic Taupe. I mixed up their order a bit when I took these photos. All pictures taken in natural light without flash.

Lancome Color Design Palette Part II

I bought these 2 Lancome Color Design Palettes long ago during the Sak's 5th Avenue's Holiday 2013 GWP. I had been eyeing two palettes, 310 Luminous Violet and 507 Metallic Moss, for a long time. I guess after 3 disappointing and uneven palettes (505 Sparkling Intoxication100 Taupe Craze, and 503 Mint Jolie), I still haven't learned my lesson :X

Paul & Joe Eye Color Trio CS

This Paul & Joe Eye Color Trio CS in 093 Le Film was among the Le Film Collection released fall 2014. I skipped most of this collection, picking up only the Lipstick CS 087 Film Festival, and its full pigmentation kept me far away from the other 2 that are full pigment lipsticks also +.+ I did buy a bunch of lipstick cases that were released from previous collections though. I eyed these shadow trios too, but they were too pricey for just a refill at $35, with case $10 sold separately.

Stila Eye Shadow

I think I've had these Stila Eye Shadow singles since 2013 but never got around to review them. You see, this is because Stila eye shadows are wet/dry shadows, and as much as I love that versatility, swatching them is just...too much work =.= So I've been putting them off, and the next thing I know it's been two years. Ha.

Anyways, so here they are, finally! I bought only 3 colors even though there are, like, a gazillions colors (okay, fine, there are *only* 29 currently available): 14K, Prize, and Sparkle, though for some reason I photographed them in reverse...

From left to right: Sparkle, Prize, and 14K. All pictures taken in natural light without flash.

Enprani One-Touch Sun Powder EX SPF50+ PA+++

I'd bought this Enprani One-Touch Sun Powder EX SPF50+ PA+++ thinking it was a loose powder, because there are 10g of it in a jar, with an attached puff underneath the twist-off cap! And then it arrived and turned out to be a pressed powder... Huh?

Higasunne UV Cut Face Powder SPF50+ PA++++

In my review for Nanoce BB Mineral Powder, I mentioned I got this Higasunne UV Cut Face Powder SPF50+ PA++++ the week before. And after 2 weeks of trial, I'm happy to report I've finally found a contender for my current favorite Privacy UV Face Powder in terms or quality and price! Woot! Love it when that happens! xD

Higasunne is a brand from Kobayashi Pharmaceutical, a small company whose products I haven't tried before. So yes, another new brand discovery which is great!

Chikuhodo Brushes Part V

Are you sick of brushes yet? ^.^ I purposely held onto this post because I figured there were back to back brush posts in February. Anyway, every year there are limited edition brush sets released for the holidays, and Chikuhodo had 2 gorgeous Noel Collection sets, Etoile and Neige. 

The Etoile set went for $275-300 depends on your source. It came with a full gray squirrel powder brush, a goat and gray squirrel mixed cheek brush, 2 Canadian squirrel eye shadow brushes L and S, a water badger eyebrow brush, a weasel lip brush, and a gold carrying case.

The Neige set went for $135-150 and came with a powder, cheek, and an eye shadow brush M, all in undyed sokoho goat hair, with a silver carriage case. Can you guess which I bought? ^.^
