Galstar cut-out back blouse, EXPRESS chiffon knotted skirt + Mariel wedges

Vanity Box x cherri☆pop☆fiction

Thursday, August 25, 2011


I'm really excited to do this post featuring Korean brand Ameli cosmetics courtesy of the amazing Australian-based webshop Vanity Box! ʕ•̫͡•ʔ❤ʕ•̫͡•ʔ I first heard of Vanity Box through the gorgeous Cindy of Bad Barbie when she reviewed the Ameli Brow Bright mascara & I was instantly intrigued. Cutie Australian blogger chaigyaru has also reviewed several Vanity Box/Ameli cosmetics. So you can imagine how happy I was to receive such a variety of items in the package they sent me! Clockwise from top right~ Step Basic Eyeshadow in #061 Orange SkinContour Blush in #01B Brown, Plat Lips in #100 Nude Beige, & Brow Bright Mascara in Gold.










Just some close-ups of all the items. The packaging is so simple & cute! For today's makeup look, I used the Brow Bright mascara which is ASDFGHJKL@#$%&AMAZING, the Orange Skin eyeshadow & the Plat Lips lip colour. I skipped the Contour Blush only because I don't have proper contouring tools & I need to practise tons before I get up the nerve to posting a review on it, haha!  ༼ꉺ౪ꉺ༽



So to show how freaking awesome the Brow Bright is, I thought I would show the difference in my brows with & without. The top photo shows my plain natural brow on the right & with Brow Bright on the left. The bottom photo is after I applied Brow Bright to both of my brows. 

The transformation is literally AMAZING! Not only do my brows finally match my lighter hair colour, but they look so much fuller & nicer (♥´౪`♥) This product is definitely going into my everyday arsenal.




Full makeup shots ❤ The Orange Skin eyeshadow is pretty but REALLY light. I tried to use it as my main colour but ended up layering it under one of my beige Stila shadows. I think it makes a perfect base colour because it's so sheer, or you can use it for a über-natural makeup day. The Plat Lips lip colour is a really nice almost pinkish nude. I think it would complement a lot of different skin tones! My only complaint is that it goes on a bit thick, though I just used my finger to apply it so maybe it would be better using a lip brush?


Overall, I am SUPER-PLEASED with all the products Vanity Box sent for me to try & 1,000% recommend buying from them even if just for the Brow Bright mascara! ༼✷ɷ✷༽ Everything came so securely-packaged too & the lollipops were a sweet surprise~

I am also really pleased to announce that...


VANITY BOX IS NOW OFFERING INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING~~!!

This is a HUGE DEAL since they previously didn't ship internationally, mostly because the rates were so high. But Vanity Box now ships to the USA, Canada, the UK, & Singapore at a flat rate of 9$ for orders over 60$! This is a great deal considering they sell not only cosmetics, but accessories & apparel as well so the shipping price is well worth filling up your cart! ƪ(•̃͡ε•̃͡)∫

I hope Vanity Box will get lots of international support so they can continue to share the awesomeness of Ameli brand cosmetics with the world~!

Ena's Secret

Tuesday, August 23, 2011
















via my scanner
click here for the scans in a bundle

I thought I would share some scans from the Ena Matsumoto mook I received this weekend ♥ I got my copy from CD Japan for much cheaper than if I would have if I had ordered from Amazon JP, using some bonus points they sent me for my birthday last year. It came with a free EMODA tee, which Ena is modeling in the second scan.

Like the title suggests, this mook is all about Ena & her 'private' life though it is also very much about EMODA & her role as producer. The photography is absolutely STUNNING & there are so many fall fashion ideas packed in here. There were quite a few sections I could have scanned, but since I only have a cheapo tiny Canon printer/scanner combo, I decided to just scan in the beauty section. I particularly liked how she shows exactly how to recreate the makeup look for her Neo Vintage concept, complete with MAC products ♥ Anyone who can tell me the name of that deep red lipstick gets my love forever, haha!

I also included a dl for the scans if anyone wants to save them. Apologising in advance for the shitty quality but it was my first time scanning  ༼;´༎ຶ ۝ ༎ຶ༽ Also, I doubt anyone will really want to re-post these anywhere, but if you do please just link back to me! I would also be happy to scan a fashion section if anyone is interested too ʕ•̫͡•ʔ❤ʕ•̫͡•ʔ

Dupe

Monday, August 22, 2011






Ever since seeing Chanel's fall 2011 nail colours, specifically the glorious & unique Peridot, & being loathe to spend 30$+ on a bottle of nail polish, I've been obsessed with trying to find a similar colour. I recently started looking at Borghese polishes at Rite-Aid & found these gorgeous colours. I have also read really good things about the Borghese brand on numerous beauty blogs & decided to give them a try. Left to right going down the line~ Stellare Notte, Limoncello, Euro Green, & freebie Presto topcoat since my OPI one died on me not too long ago.

I bought Stellare Notte for when I attempt to try Nails by Asami's Space Nails tutorial, but Limoncello & Euro Green I got because they were the closest to resembling Chanel's Peridot in the bottle.

Here's how both colours look on my nails though. Regular flash photos, no filters~



Limoncello turned out to be too yellow, though it's actually a really gorgeous metallic-y, mustard-y shade that's perfect for this fall's colour palette. Euro Green however...


... is pretty damn close to Peridot!  ƪ(•̃͡ε•̃͡)∫  Not too bad for only 8$ a bottle too, haha~
