The Order

I have to admit it was the bargain price that caught my eye and I was looking forward to trying out various indie items.

I picked out Lipstick Colour: Sunlight, Lip Gloss: Serenity and Eyeshadows: Telepathy and Best Wishes.


Postage & Packaging

Well this was posted the day after ordering so that was quick. It did take nearly 3 weeks to arrive (US-UK) however with all the bad weather that is certainly no fault of the seller!

It arrived in a jiffy bag all safely - the eyeshadows were in a little pretty bag inside.

Eyeshadows

These came in 5g pots which were well filled up and labelled by hand. The swatches are over 'naked' skin and this is a good couple of swipes but the colours were decent pigmentation.

Best Wishes is a lovely blue and **Telepathy[/b] is more of an gray/bronze and doesn't have the purple shade in it that I was hoping for.

Lipstick

I was under the impression that the lipstick would be, like the other products, homemade. However it is clear not since it has the label of Nabi Lipstick which is a cheap brand from what I can see on Google.

The colour is called Sunlight and it's a slight orange - I quite like it although it did need quite a bit of layering.

Lip Gloss

Well this one does look homemade but the pigmentation is nothing like how it looks in the tube which is a real shame as it looks lovely in the tube but it is extremely sheer.

The colour is called Serenity and after many layers and shaking the tube the most it leaves is a very subtle purple shimmer. A really shame as it looked so pretty in the tube.

Overall

In general this was kinda disappointing however it was very cheap and she did ship out very quickly. I did also win a competition on her Facebook so I'll do a review when that arrives.

After some chasing a prize arrived - I was promised a set of contact lens (I didn't want these but figured I'd give to a friend), several eyeshadows, lipsticks and lip glosses. What arrived were a set of contact lens and two mini's of eyeshadows and a customs bill because she'd a) overvalued the items (put $40 value - which wouldn't have been the value even if I'd got it all) and b) not marked as a gift (it was a prize so gift should have been ticked IMO). I contacted her in a "thank you, just to let you its here but some of it's missing and I got hit by customs" kinda way and was promised the rest of the items. Nothing turned up.

Long term use of the previously review products - generally the Lipstick & Lip Gloss are never used cause of the bad pigmentation and I've not used the eyeshadows after someone pointed it that they looked to be purely mica.

I wouldn't recommend based on quality.
