Continue reading for my quick review with the stuff I got!


Love me Blusher (Indy Violet)
Formulated with 4 herb extracts, and highly vivid pigments with a luxury wool brush.

Overall: I really love how pigmented this shade is and the fact that it is actually really long-lasting (even water-resistant). I also like how value for money this product is at $17 for 11g of blush and with a free brush inside for application. That being said, I find the brush a little too scratchy for my liking so I'm sticking to my favourite blush brush.

 Selfie Perfect Eyebrow (Gray Brown)
An oval-shaped tip with a spool brush tip at the other end, formulated to be waterproof and long-lasting.

Overall: I think I'm too used drawing with a triangular-shaped tip that I don't think an oval-shaped tip makes it easier to draw my brows. For $5.50, this is really affordable and great for beginners! As for its long-lasting properties, this product lives up to its claim.

Skinny Brush Big Marker Liner (Big Black)
Felt tip pen with plant extracts with an air tight system that minimise drying and leaking.

Overall: I had an issue with this product when I got it because the pen sent was faulty (there was no ink). However, that being said, the follow-up customer service was really good! They were fast and I got my second pen in less than a week. 

For the second pen, I am quite disappointed with the intensity of the pigmentation. I suspect that it is faulty too because I read up on other reviews on it and people are stating that it is really pigmented... However that aside, I find that the shape of it makes it easy to draw, it does dries fast upon drawing and it really doesn't smudge after application! This eyeliner would be great for beginners.

It’s My Eye Maker (It's My Eyelash Curler (Comb))
Prevents eyelashes from crumpling and tangling while curling them with this eyelash curler.

Overall: I got this curler because it's the first time I saw anything like this and I really like how it helps to separate the lashes properly before I clamp them down. 

It's My Brush&Puff (It's My Auto Lip Brush)
A retractable lip brush

 Overall: I have this habit where sometimes, I will end up losing the cap of my lip brush or I have moments when the cap of the brush might drop out while it's in my bag. With this brush being retractable, I have no worries about losing my cap again!

CP-1 Protein Clinic (Ceramide Treatment)
A convenient and easy-to-use hair treatment.

Overall: I like how it is packaged in an easy-to-use syringe and it has more than enough products for 3 - 4 rounds of treatment. I did find that it helped to make my hair softer and smoother. 

Swatches & Test
