This post is like super overdue, but what the heck. First of all, I apologize for the lack of updates lately. I haven't had much time or energy to blog over the past week, what with falling sick, my cousin's wedding and assignments. So, back to the topic, I recently bought some items from StrawberryNET with the Groupons I purchased a couple of weeks ago.
I had heard about and visited the website a few times before, but didn't buy anything; online window shopping, if you will. :) So when I saw the offer on Groupon, I quickly grabbed the chance to get some nice items. There were some hiccups with the ordering/purchasing process, but it was solved in the end and I got my items all safe and sound (as you can see from the first photo).

Now on to the items!

Middle: Givenchy Shadow Show eye shadow in #03 Stylish Grey (unboxed)
Bottom: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Personnel lipstick in #19 Brun Chic
These aren't exactly the newest products, but they were from brands I normally couldn't afford to buy from the departmental store counters, and I really wanted to try them out. Yes, I plead guilty to being a brand whore
Dolce & Gabbana Lip Gloss in #60 Nude
The first item is a sheer, shimmery lip gloss from Dolce & Gabbana. Totally love the simple yet elegant design of the tube. Even though the colour stated is Nude, in reality it has a pinkish sheen to it. The lip gloss is a subtle pink shade with pink, gold and purple microglitter in it. Its consistency is a bit on the thick side, so I normally layer it over lip balm or lipstick. This is my current favourite lip gloss.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Personnel in #19 Brun Chic
Last but not least is this YSL lipstick in Brun Chic. Yup, it's brown. A slightly red-toned brown, but still brown nonetheless. The colour doesn't really suit me, as my lips are quite pigmented and the colour doesn't show up when I apply it. Maybe it will look better if I use some lip concealer under this first. Not as creamy as I expected, and needs quite a few swipes to build up some colour. A hit-and-miss for now, but I'll see what I can do with it.
|I ♥ these two! :D|
Okay, that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed the review(s)! :)
