Missha Haulage :)

Oi, I'm sorry I'm posting this so late, but I hope they keep the sale going for a couple of days!
Missha us (http://www.misshaus.com) had a spring sale, which meant everything was 30% off!
So, I couldn't just sit around and suck my thumb, I grabbed some stuff I was eyeing :)

So, shall we start?


Today I'm going to focus my reviews on these palettes.
Missha's new Signiture Velvet Art Shadow Palettes (1-5).
Normally, they are 22.99 e/a, but with the sale I got them for 16.09 each!! (yay!)


This is how the case looks like.
Sturdy and well built, I love it :)





Flash on


Flash off, natural lighting.



This is how big the palette is.



And it comes with a diagram of how to apply the shadows accordingly.



#1 is Plum Combination

1. Highlight color
2. Point color
3. Base color
4. Liner color
Out of the colors, I like the point color the best!
As you can see, the colors in the palette look a bit dull, but when you swatch them, the colors are pretty nice. I think the Plum Combo is quite a keeper.



#2. Peach Combination

The colors look totally different on the swatch and I think it's because of the lighting.
The swatch is a bit more accurate of how the colors actually come out.
If you are into peachy colors, this is an interesting palette, but I don't think it's all that intriguing. It was a bit of a disappointment :(


#3. Khaki Combination

This palette swatched the best.
All of the colors are pretty but I like the liner color the best.
This one's a keeper too!

#4. Brown Combination

I have too many brown, nude colors, I was hesitant about this one, but I decided to buy it since it will be weird to only have 4 out of 5 palettes.
The colors are as shown. If you are a beginner, I think this is an essential palette, but if you already have 500 kinds of browns like me, it's not worth the investment.


#5. Silver Combination

I thought it was going to be named blue, but I guess silver won the name.
This one I like!
I've noticed that the darker colors swatch better and have better pigmentation.
The navy blue (4.liner color) is very pretty, and it could be used as a eye shadow too.


All in all, I like #3 and #5 palette the most.

Just to re-cap, below is a closeup of the palettes :)







Next is Lipsticks!!
I can NEVER go makeup shopping without buying at least one lipstick.
I actually bought 5, but one is a backup of Missha M Luminous Color CR302 (since they seem to have been discontinued in Korea).

The colors are pretty similar, but I decided to go with beautiful rosy colors that would look good for spring and summer :)
I love all of the colors!

Swatches were taken on my skin
* I'll do a lip swatch on my next post - I took a shower and didn't want to put anything on my face




Next are polishes!
I think Missha came out with these when OPI came out with the crackle polishes, but it works by the same logic. Misshaus.com only had three colors, and I had to have all three.
The original price is 6.99, but I got them on sale for 4.89 each :)

(L-R: LBK01, LBR01, LBL03)



I tried out all three colors


I actually only did one coat to see how they turned out.
I applied Blue first, followed by brown and then black. As you can see, blue has the best crack, and black was still in the process of cracking up when I took the picture.
They dry matte, but if you like them glossy, you can apply a top coat like I did.

If you want more cracks, you can apply another coat of it.
I do have to advise that you apply the polish as thin as possible. If you get greedy and apply a chunk of the polish, it won't crack (like the black one demonstrated above).

Overall, I think I did well with the shopping since I like most of the stuff I got :D hehe


I'm sorry the update on this blog is slow.
I'll see you guys in my next post!!
