Package from Cherry Culture

Yesterday Mr. Postman brought me a pretty nice box from Cherry Culture! My original plan was to order a few of the "The Runway Collection" palettes from NYX Cosmetics, but I came to my senses after a long talk with Sneezingpanda, and ended up ordering ten lipsticks and three pair of lashes instead. Much better! No, but seriously, why should I spent money on palettes from other brands when I already have a favorite? And what I wasn't planning on saying out loud was that.. if I refrained from ordering the mentioned palettes, I'd have more money to splurge on M·A·C some other time. It's important to always have a good excuse prepared, you know. Let's call it.. prioritizing? Razz

Anyway, I've ordered from Cherry Culture once before, and I'm remembering a distinct feeling of not being very pleased. I cannot remember why, but I think it had something to do with the time it took to reach me, and severe lack of customer service - and as we all know, I'm not a very patient being. Since Cherry Culture was having one of their frequent sales where you can get NYX products for next to nothing, I decided to try a few of their Round Lipsticks. The regular price is $3.50, but during the sale you can get them for $1.75 each - that would be about 11,- NOK with today's exchange rate, which I think is a bargain if the lipsticks are any good. Unfortunately It's impossible to choose colors from the sucky pictures on their website. So my advice would be to spend a few minutes searching the Internet for swatches of the ones you think might be interesting, and choose from them. I spent a good amount of time searching for swatches before I carefully picked out the ten that arrived today, trying to avoid the most sparkly, glittery ones. That was absolutely worth my while!

This time I ordered on a Saturday, got an e-mail that my package was sent the next Tuesday, and then Mr. Postman came knocking yesterday. This adds up to exactly seven working days, which isn't really bad at all!

As already said I also got three pair of lashes, NYX Fabulous Lashes, in the numbers 112 Secret, 117 Posh and 127 After Midnight. These lashes was $4 each, which is about 24,- NOK. Even thought these lashes come as a complete set with a small tube of glue, I'm gonna use my Duo Lash Glue instead - as it's considered the best. You'll find the variety of NYX Fabulous Lashes offered here, and also the ones I chose to get.

This just about made my day since I had been struggling with an infernal headache all day. I tried laying down for two hours, but not even that made it any better. I did manage to sneak in some quality snuggling with my sweet little Theo though, once he calmed down, stopped pawing me in the face, trying to lick me in my ear. Naturally the headache started to clear once that it was time to go to bed. So.. if this post is a little weird, I'm blaming it all on my headache. I still can't see straight.

  1. YAY! SÅ fort de kom. Hva syns du om fargene du bestilte da? Fornøyd?

  2. Jeg har vært sengeliggende nesten kontinuerlig de siste tre dagene, pga. sinnssyke smerter i nakken med påfølgende hodepine, så jeg har ikke fått prøvd dem ut enda. Sånn utfra fargene kunne jeg nok spart meg for Louisiana (som er veldig skrikende), Spell Bound (muligens helt feil), Chaos og Pandora (som ser veldig skimrende ut) – nå skal jeg derimot ikke påstå noe før jeg har testet dem på, så vi får se! Fornøyd er jeg uansett. Smile

  3. Ja, enig, hva faen skal man med perlemor liksom, det er 2010, ikke 1998! Jeg vet ikke om jeg kommer til å bruke mine så mye…. kanskje et par av de, men vi får se. de er veldig leppestiftaktige liksom. dekker godt og er veldig pigmentert. noe som ikke nodvendigvis er ønsket!

  4. Vel, jeg vet fler som forguder både “frost” og “glaze”-finishene fra M·A·C, uten at jeg skjønner hvorfor. Perlemor klarer jeg meg fint uten, med mindre det er i moderate mengder i en øyenskygge. Uansett, update kommer – og jeg skal fikse bilde spesielt til deg av meg med røde lepper, sånn at du kan se hva jeg mener med at jeg ser ut som en “two dollar hooker” med rød leppestift.

  5. Vel, når man tenker på hva du betalte for de syns jeg jo “2-dollar hooker” blir litt vel i det luksuriøse hjørnetSmile Jeg tror du blir fin jeg… skrubb leppene godt først da, hvis du ikke har sånn skrubb så bruk sukker og honning.
