Cherry Culture Haul: NYX and China Glaze + First Impressions!

Monday, February 18, 2013

Hi everyone, I posted my Project Pan update yesterday and told you about how I gave up my project for an hour, when I saw that Cherry Culture was having a '20% off everything in store' sale. I could not resist. I had just cleaned out my collection a bit and threw away some old makeup, so I figured I deserved a little reward to myself. 

I'll do seperate reviews on all the products once I used them a bit more, but I'll do first impressions now as well.

The first thing I bought were two lipglosses. I've heard a lot about these and I wanted to try them out for so long! I got 'Beige' (which is not beige at all, but it's a light pink) and 'Tea Rose'.

                                       This is what the cap looks like, SO cute!
                                   Swatches: Beige and Tea Rose.

The glosses smelled nice and fruity. I like the smell. They have nice pigmentation and didn't feel sticky on my hands.

I also bought two eyeliners. These are the 'Slide On, Glide On,Stay On & Definitely A Turn On Waterproof Extreme Shine Eyepencil. (This eyelines is so good, the name had to be long!)' I love the description. Ever since I saw this on Amarixe's blog, I wanted to try them out! I got them in 'Golden Bronze' and 'Jewel'.

I decided not to buy the classic black or brown, I have enough black eyeliners. So I've chosen two more special colors and I'm so happy I did! I love these two and they felt so smooth when I swatched them on my hand.
Then I chose one blush, just one. After a lot of thinking, I decided to buy a light colored neutral blush called 'Mauve'

This blush looks very light, but when I swatched it on my hand, it appeared to be a bit darker on the skin. It seems like a perfect, natural shade.

I've heard a lot about the 'Champagne&Caviar' palette so I decided to try that out as well. I also bought another palette but that never got delivered (more about that later)

                                       I love the colors!

And of course, you can't do a NYX haul without the Jumbo Eye Pencils. I got one in one of the most popular shades, 'Iced Mocha'.

To me, this was more brown and bronzy than I expected. I thought it would be more of a taupe. But I still love the color and the pigmentation was, again, amazing.

And last but not least: the nail polishes. I wanted to try China Glaze for years now. And when I saw they still had the Hunger Games collection, I was so happy!

I also bought four of the NYX Advanced Salon Formula Nail polishes. The color selection was nuts, they have so many colors! It was really hard to chose.

From left to right: CG Harvest Moon, CG Fast Track, CG Stone Cold, CG Hook and Line, NYX Hunter Green, NYX Pastel Pistachio, NYX Blue Supreme, NYX Precious Gems.

Yes, I bought a lot. But I wanted to only buy things that I don't have yet in my collection, like the China Glaze polishes and the NYX eyeliners. I'm glad with my purchase and am excited to review and use everything. 

What did I think about Cherry Culture? 
My order was processed and delivered in about two weeks, I think that's long but not terrible at all. It had to come from overseas, so I can't expect to have my order delivered in five days. 

A big downside were the shipping prices. They count by weight, I think, so the shipping was nog inexpensive. I'm glad I had 20% off my purchase, so it made up for the shipping prices.

There is one big problem. I had also ordered another eyeshadow palette from the new 'Fall in love in Paris' line for spring 2013. But I never found it in my package and the package was well closed, so it didn't got stolen or something. They never warned me about the item being out of stock, so I think they just forgot it. My package also did not include a list of products, so I can't figure out what must have gone wrong. 

I sent an e-mail to the Customer Service and they answered within the hour that they will check everything. I hope I will still get my palette.

This has been a very long blogpost. I hope you liked it :)
