  Etude House July Pink Bird Box ♥ (Ice Cream Water Gel Tint, Lip Top Coat, Fix & Fix Powder)
Hello everyone!
I'm back with the last Pink Bird Box from Etude House. This is actually a "delayed" June Pink Bird Box because the June Box was strangely "delayed" last minute without them notifying us in advance (which I found pretty suspicious, I guess they forgot about us). I will explain in the last paragraph of this post why I have decided to avoid buying from Etude House from now on.

This month's box is filled with many of their new product ranging from the new Ice Cream Water Gel Tint to the Lip Top Coat and the Fix & Fix Powder. I was honestly happy when I saw the water gel tints because I saw them all over ig and thought they're super cute! I will introduce each product seperately down below, so keep reading ♥

July Pink Bird Box contents:
♡ Dear Darling Water Gel Tint in Shark Red, Watermelon Red, Apricot Red (here)
♡ Color Fix Lip Top Coat (here)
♡ Fix & Fix Powder (here)

So this was everything we received in the July Pink Bird Box. I actually didn't know that they just released a lip top coat for your lips and also didn't know about the powder but I'm glad to be able to test them out for you guys.

  I dyed my hair! Liese Creamy Bubble Color in Rose Tea Brown ♥
Hello everyone!
I'm so excited to blog about this because I honestly always wanted to dye my hair rose brown and could finally do that! *-*

I used the bubble hair dye from Liese which I bought last year when I was in Hong Kong for about 8$? I'm actually a huge fan of the whole Liese Creamy Bubble Color line because they're so easy to use and are great for lightening up asian hair. I prefer asian hair dyes much over western ones to be honest!

You can already see how your hair is going to look if you have dark, light or very light hair. Mine is probably dark to medium. I will post the before/after shots at the end~~

  Sensual 3 Tones Gray Review ♥
Hello everyone! 
It's been such a long time since I've posted a circle lens review! I dropped all my circle lens sponsorships almost a year ago because the amount of work I put into writing them got too much for me and I felt like the amount of circle lens reviews on my blog got a bit overwhelming. After taking a break, I decided that I would love to get back to it (as long as those reviews don't dominate my blog content) so here I am back with a circle lens review! haha

Today I will review the Sensual 3 Tones Gray lenses from loveshoppingholics.com! They were kind enough to send me a pair of circle lenses for review purpose, thank you so much! Your effort is greatly appreciated! ♥

"These lenses were sent to me by LoveShoppingholics for absolutely free in exchange for a honest review. Nevertheless, my opinion will be 100% my own."

LoveShoppingHolics is an online shop that mainly focuses on circle lenses. They were set up in 2008 and are based in Malaysia. They also sell other beauty products such as false lashes from Japan and makeup products from South Korea and Japan. Please check them out at loveshoppingholics.com if you're interested, they sometimes have some nice sales!

Hello everyone!
I'm back with another Pink Bird Box review from Etude House! It's already my fifth Pink Bird Box which means that next month is going to be the last month of my sponsorship, I'm honestly so upset about this, six month flew by so fast! 
I'm super happy about the box for may! This is honestly the best box out of all boxes in my opinion. I was already planning to buy many of these products with my own money so this box was such a win and I'm so glad Etude House picked them out for us! Thank you so much ♥

They sent us so many new products, for example their new cleansing water and the hot eyebrow tint which was promoted and loved by Pony (I love Pony so much *-*)! They also included some freebies from the Pink Play Concert 2017 which is awesome! Here's what they sent me:

Product list ♥
3x 25ml Monster Micellar Cleansing Water
Play Color Eyes Cherry Blossom Palette
Tint My 4-Tip Brow in dark brown

  Etude House April Pink Bird Box ♥ (All Day Perfect Cushion, Fix & Fix Primer, Super Slim Proof Liner, Honey Cera)
Hello everyone!
I received the April Pink Bird Box a few weeks ago and can finally blog about it. This month has been pretty stressful for me because my new semester in university has started and I have to do tons of assignments, sorry for the delayed post!

Etude House sent me their new All Day Perfect Cushion and the Fix and Fix Primer which are some of their newest face products! I was honestly already a little excited for the Fix & Fix Primer because of the AD with Krystal from f(x) haha

I also received two eyeliners from their new Super Slim Proof Liner Collection, one pencil and one brush liner. They have promoted these eyeliners on their instagram account a lot, so this was basically what I was most excited about in this box~

The Honey Cera Trial Kit was a small extra gift from Etude House, thank you so much! ♥

Products in the April Pink Bird Box
♡ Any Cushion All Day Perfect in beige link
♡ Fix and Fix Primer in rose link
♡ Super Slim Proof Brush Liner in brown link
♡ Super Slim Proof Pencil Liner in black link
♡ Honey Cera Trial Kit link

Before I start with the review a small disclaimer just to get things clear:
**These products were sent to me and sponsored by Etude House (etudehouse.com). I didn't pay for any of these products with my own money. They were sent to me for absolutely free in exchange for an honest review. This being a sponsored post doesn't affect my opinion about all of these products at all. This is my 100% honest opinion**

I'm honestly impressed by the amount of products Etude House sent us Pink Birds~

  MAC Eyeshadow Review ♥ (#Expensive Pink)
Hello everyone~~!
Today, I will review an eyeshadow from MAC in shade #Expensive Pink!
This is my first MAC eyeshadow ever and you probably already saw this eyeshadow in my haul post~ I only bought it because I felt like spoiling myself and I always wanted to have a MAC eyeshadow haha.

I wasn't sure wether to get expensive pink, soft brown or soba but I decided to go for this because it reminded me a little of the NARS Orgasm Blush and I still wasn't sure if I should invest that much money in a basic matte brown eyeshadow (maybe next time !!).

MAC Eyeshadow in Expensive Pink
- A highly pigmented powder that applies evenly and blends well.

Price: 19€ (16$ in the US)
Ingredients: Talc, Zinc Stearate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol,Phenoxyethanol, Silica, Mica,Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Bismuth Oxychloride, Carmine, Chromium Hydroxide Green,Chromium Oxide Greens, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Manganese Violet, Red 40 Al Lake, Ultramarines, Yellow 5 Al Lake, Blue 1 Lake
1.3 g / 0.04 US oz
Available in 120 shades!


MAC Expensive Pink (Veluxe Pearl)

The eyeshadow pot looks pretty sturdy and easy to carry around because it's really small. Like mentioned above, the shade expensive pink has this really nice golden shimmer? which reminds me of the well known 'Orgasm' Blusher from Nars ^-^ ♥ I think this colour looks soo pretty and would be perfect for spring or even for a daily and glamorous makeup look ~

Here are some swatches (no primer)

To be honest, the colour doesn't look pink at all, it's more of a peachy-gold color and you can make it look more vibrant by applying several layers and using a primer so it's quite buildable (I didn't use a primer on the swatches)

MAC Expensive Pink on my eyes (no primer)

It was extremely hard to catch the real eyeshadow color on my eyes but this is the closest I could get to >.< It looks a little more peachy gold in person and the small gold shimmer particles are more obvious too~!

One thing I noticed is that it starts to crease into my fine wrinkles after 2 hours (no primer). It's not that obvious after 2 hours but if you look reaaally closely you will be able to see that it has creased >.< I'm super disappointed because it was an expensive eyeshadow and I think that I can expect it to stay on my lids for at least 3 to 4 hours with no primer! There are many cheap eyeshadows that stay longer on my lids than this one! I'm not sure if its the same with the other eyeshadows from MAC. However, it does stay on my lids almost all day if I use a primer but it seems to faint into a really sheer gold shade at the end of the day.

The pigmentation is really, REALLY good and I love how this colour looks on my eyes! It looks really fresh and exotic haha.

    What I like about it
- pigmentation
- gold shimmers ♥
- buildable colour
- easy to blend
- huge variety of shades (120 shades!)
- small packaging (easy to carry around)

What I don't like about it
- creases if you don't use an eyeshadow primer
- expensive
- not a lot of product (1.3g for 19€)

Overall Rating:
I like MAC eyeshadows so far and would repurchase a few more in another colour (soft brown, soba, honeylust *-*). The pigmentation is great, I love the huge variety of colours they have and I think they're great for beginners!

However, If you don't have a lot of money and would need to save up to get it.... just go with a another brand.. To be honest, There are many eyeshadows for a more affordable price and you really don't need to pay like 10$ more for an eyeshadows that is a littleeee bit better than cheap ones (just my two cents). Go for these if you have enough money, want to get a colour thats hard to find or want to spoil yourself with more expensive makeup~~!

This is everything they sent me:

They honestly sent me so much and even some cute accessories they didn't mention before! I asked them to help me pick a BB cream based on my MAC shade and they did such a great job, I'm very happy about the shades they picked for me (both for the eyeshadows and the BB cream)!
