Cherry Culture recently had a sale for 40% off their entire range of cosmetics. Mary and I are always on the look out for sales, especially for those involving beauty products that are not readily available in Australia.
Although in the recent months Target has brought in the NYX ranges down under, their price is just ridiculous (surprise, surprise). Which is why we decided to exploit the Cherry Culture sale and go crazy!
Here are the products that I got...
And here's what Mary and our other friends got...
In our last Cherry Culture Haul post I predominantly bought NYX eye makeup products while Mary got a bunch of blushes. This time, after extensive research both online and offline, I purchased mainly blushes since Mary has been raving about them. It was hard to find the products I wanted at Target as my local one only has a small range of NYX. So I had to rely on online swatch photos to get a sense of what the colours were like.
|NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Golden and Boho Chic.|
|NYX Powder Blush in Taupe, Mauve, and Pinched.|
|NYX Ultra Peal Mania Loose Eyeshadow in Mink and Mocha.|
Okay, here is the weird thing. Both Mary and I purchased the NYX Powder Blush in Mauve. Can you tell which one out of the two below is Mauve?
Yes that's right, THEY BOTH ARE. I was quite shocked to find out that these two very different looking shades are both "Mauve". Let me show you some more comparison photos.
You may be thinking, "That's not a huge difference, they still look similar." But they shouldn't look similar. They should look the same since they are same. Comparing the back, I could see some of the ingredients are different between the two. *Sigh*
Has anyone else had this problem before? :(
Besides that issue I am very excited to try out these new cheek products from NYX and I'll be swatching all of the products that I purchased so stay tuned!
