3 Concept Eyes Pink Trophy Lip Color Palette ♡ Review + Swatches

3 Concept Eyes remains my favourite beauty brands all these years because their products are made with such high quality and their pricing aren’t too expensive.

The latest product I have purchased from the brand is the 2015’s Lip Color Palette in Pink Trophy, it contains four of 3 Concept Eyes’ hottest lip colors in pink shades.

Pink Trophy features $405 Glass Pink, #608 Hala, #408 ChuChu and #807 Hynotic. I have already tried these colors individually and at the moment I own three of these lipsticks on its’ own, but I still felt that it was necessary to have the lip palette in my collection too because it is so handy to carry around and the palette is too pretty to pass.

#405 GLASS PINK is described as a "Lovely Pink" with a glossy finish. It has a sheer and tinted lip balm formula that glides on smoothly. This lip color doesn't have a great pigmentation and the color didn't show up too well on my skin tone, but it does moisturize during wear and it worn for approximately two hours on me before having to re-apply.

#608 HALA is described as a "Soft, Milky Pink" in their original formula. The color is a brightened, barbie pink that is moisturizing during wear, but it does emphasize lip lines and dry patches due to its' very light shade. Hala reminds me of a sheerer and a more tone-down version of MAC Saint Germain and it worn well for three hours.

#408 CHUCHU is described as a "Extravagant Neon Pink" in their original formula. It is a brightened, medium pinkish coral shade with a lot of pigmentation that is wearable both day and night. ChuChu has a creamy texture that glides on smoothly upon application and the color worn well for six hours before it fades into a light rosy stain. ChuChu is moisturizing during wear, but I find that this one dries more matte compared to others.

#807 HYPNOTIC is described as a "Raspberry & Deep Pink" in their original formula, it is a darkened plum-ish pink shade with a full color payoff. Hypnotic has a glossy finish upon application and the gloss would disappear within a few hours of wear. The color worn well for seven hours and it leaves a pink stain after removable.

2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag ♡ ft. Natasha Denona, IT Cosmetics, Wayne Goss, Make-Up Atelier & Z•Palette

2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag
2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag

I am so excited to share with you my 2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag!

This is my second year buying the Beautylish Lucky Bags and I am loving this year's surprises more than last year's (click here for my review of 2016 Lucky Bag). Although I didn't get the makeup items that I really wish for, I did received a bunch of beauty products that I have never tried. So these are all new to me products and I love trying new things.

Just in case that you have never heard of or purchased a Beautylish Lucky Bag in the past, it's pretty much a mystery bag inspired by the Japanese New Year tradition of fukubukuro. I have only just learnt that there is different sized Lucky Bags, the one that I purchased is a normal sized and there is a XL sized that is only available for USA customers.

The one I bought is USD $75.00 plus USD $20.00 shipping to New Zealand and I have added a total cost of items I have received and it comes to USD $190.

2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag: Natasha Denona Blush Duo

 NATASHA DENONA BLUSH DUO | USD $38.00
#02 TOUTOU + #09 GOLDEN CORAL

Natasha Denona Blush Duo is described as a blush with soft and silky texture that gives a natural and bright look to the skin's complexion. The duo blusher palette provides a dominant colour on the right side and a more subtle colour on the left side for blending and softening edges.

Natasha Denona is a completely new brand to me, I have only just heard about this brand recently and I haven't tried any products them yet. I did came across a few very positive reviews on this makeup brand, a lot of people seems to really enjoy Natasha Denona's eyeshadow palettes and that has made me wondered about this brand.

Although I haven't tested the Blush Duo, I already have a great impression on this product. The packaging is super cute, it has a neon pink cover and a big mirror inside. The colours I got is #02 Toutou & #09 Golden Coral and both are beautiful summery shades. The only thing that I dislike about this blush is the smell, it has this very strange smell, almost like a cheap perfume scent.

2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag: BECCA Backlight Priming Filter

 BECCA BACKLIGHT PRIMING FILTER | USD $38.00

BECCA Backlight Priming Filter is a lightweight, whipped fluid that creates a smooth canvas for your makeup, extending its wear from day to night. This product acts as an instant filter, creating a diffused, soft-focused radiance that allows your complexion to catch light for a glowing look.

I have tried this product over the weekend and I have worn this alone, without any foundations or powders on top. Although I have only tried this once, I am already loving this product and I feel so thankful to have received this in my 2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag.

I love that the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter gives me an instant healthy glow without being over-the-top sparkly and I like that it helps to blur imperfection and it seems to covers large pores very well. I have oily skin and on days that I wear completely no makeup, my face tends to get very oily and I would have to wash my face three to four times a day. I find that the Backlight Primer helps to controls facial oil very well and the product worn for eight hours on me, which is totally impressive!

2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag: Z Palette Small Palette Hot Pink

 Z•PALETTE SMALL PALETTE HOT PINK | USD $14.00

Z•Palette Small Palette can fit up to nine MAC eyeshadows in those Pro Palette Refill Pan sized, I had this palette few years ago, but I didn't find it too useful then because I didn't know how to depot eyeshadows or blushes, so I got rid of it.

This year I have received another Small Z•Palette and surprisingly I am not disappointed. I am actually glad that Beautylish has included this item in my 2017 Lucky Bag and I am more than happy that they have chosen a pink one for me.

2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag: Make-Up Atelier Eyeshadow Palette

 MAKE-UP ATELIER EYESHADOW PALETTE | USD $35.00
T15 HONEY BROWN TONES

Make-Up Atelier 5 Eye Shadows Palette comes in a sleek, travel-friendly palette that features five removable pans of pro-quality eye shadow in complementary shades. Each eyeshadow is formulated with a vivd colour payoff and a smooth, easily blendable formula with a long-lasting wear.

T15 Honey Brown Tones includes four warm brown shades and a champagne pearl shade, and these eyeshadows claims to be non-creasing during wear, water-resistant with a high-impact, full-coverage finish.

Make-Up Atelier is another completely new brand to me, I have never heard of this brand, neither seen any reviews on their product. I would only assume that this brand has been around for many years and it's mostly popular in the European countries.

2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag: IT Cosmetics Confident In A Cream

 IT COSMETICS CONFIDENT IN A CREAM | USD $48.00

IT Cosmetics Confident In A Cream is a moisturizer that hydrate, restore radiance, reduce the look of pores, uneven texture and discolouration. It says to be suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitives.

I have seen the brand IT Cosmetics on social medias many times, but I haven't tried their products yet. I did read some reviews on the Confident In A Cream upon unboxing the 2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag and many people has raved about this product. My only concern on this product is that 100% of the reviews I have read are from people with dry skin and I know that IT Cosmetics has mentioned that this is suitable for all skin type, but usually when a moisturizer is too hydrating, it doesn't work as well on my oily skin.

2017 Beautylish Lucky Bag: Wayne Goss Brush 08

 WAYNE GOSS BRUSH 08 | USD $17.00

Wayne Goss Brush 08 is handcrafted in Japan and it can be used on the eyes or the brows. It claims to make tightening easy so that you can work close to the lashline without smearing colour onto the lid, and when using this brush to fill in the brows, it claims to give you the perfect natural look.

I feel like Beautylish is trying to tell me something... Like, wear more eyes products maybe?! I have received two Wayne Goss eye brushes two years in a row, and I am not complaining, because Wayne Goss brushes are totally great qualities! The bristles are very soft and they work as well as it claims.



IS 2017 BEAUTYLISH LUCKY BAG WORTH IT?! 

YES! DEFINITELY! I love the surprises that I have received this year and I feel so lucky to have received the items mentioned above. 

Let's be honest, I was very scared of opening my package when it arrived because 90% of the unboxing I have seen on Weibo was such disappointment. Some people has received Lucas Papaw Ointment, brush cleaners or micellar cleanser, and I am not saying that these products are not good, but I just think that it's no surprise because you can buy these products in the supermarket. 

Also, Beautylish has promised USD $150.00 worth of full sized products and some of them I have seen don't seem to be too full sized. 

Anyway, I just feel so thankful to have a great start this year with my beauty obsession.

Too Faced Sugar Pop Eye Palette ♡ Swatches

Cheers to a colorful start of 2017!

Today I am sharing with you swatches of the Too Faced Sugar Pop Eye Palette. This has literally been sitting in my drafts for over a year now and I will be absolutely honest with you, I no longer have this palette because I ruined it while I was trying to DIY those rainbow highlighters. The DIY was a fail and the eyeshadow palette fell apart!

Prior to ruining this palette, I have used it many many times and every time the palette has left me with such a great impression. I love everything from the macaron tin case packaging to the texture, the formula and the colors and pigmentation. I especially love it when Too Faced includes a few of the palette inspired look and tutorials to help you create something similar, it doesn't matter if you are a makeup pro or just a beginner, I find these tutorials so helpful.
