It's not unusual

My Cherry Culture order came today!

NYX Glitterati Cream palette
NYX Jumbo Pencil Black Bean
NYX Jumbo Pencil Purple
NYX Jumbo Pencil Lemon
NYX Jumbo Pencil Cherry
NYX pencil sharpener


And swatches of the pencils and some of the glitters:

So, how are they?

Pencils I love. Lemon is the only that gets 'okey' review, other are 'uh' and 'aah' *g*
Cherry is really nice slightly pinkish red.
Black Bean is really a true black, no shimmer, no nothing. It's one of the most intensive black that I have ever seen.
Purple is pretty vibrant purple, reminds me of MAC Parfait Amour.
Lemon is okey, lime green with gold.

Glitters are nice too, and the palette was way much bigger than I thought!
I think the glitters work fine, now I can spice my makeup with glitter, without fighting with glues and stuff :D

Then my nail polishes came too!

Nubar Vital matte polish, China Glaze Wireless Holographic top coat, China Glaze Orange Knockout.

Nubar one is AMAZING!

I love it <3  Holographic top coat is also AWESOME!

Anyway, then I'll share my look for fun, made with SMH Fresh e/s, SMH Lime Light and NYX Glitterati Cream glitters:

I think I'll do somekind of mermaid inspired makeup with the glitters!

Then my LOTD:

Two bad photos in natural light:

  • NYX Jumbo pencil Purple
  • MAC Yong Punk (inner corner)
  • MAC Blue Flame (outer corner + crease + lower lashline)
  • MAC Cranberry (crease and above)
  • MAC Off the Page (above crease, blending)
  • SMH Bee's Knees (highlight)
  • Wet'n'Wild Mageliner
  • MF FLE mascara


  1. Really nice looks! I received the gliteratti palette a couple of weeks ago, and I loooove it! Do you have any tips on how to make the glitter shadows easier to work with??
    I haven't used the palette much jet, but I have a Young Punk "alternative" on my blog that I created with this palette. Check it if you want, and please, leave me a comment!

  2. Looovve LOTD, this dark purple-blue is so nice. Maybe I will try tomorrow, but I'm not as talented as you...

  3. waaooo, espectacular, te agrego ok ??? un besooo

  4. Hi Jangsara! Is the glitter only on the top layer of palette? It likes exactly like a glitter palette I saw in Claires last week and it was really cheap.


  5. Awww, I NEED that glitter palette!! It looks amazing <3! How much is shipping from Cherryculture?

  6. Charming Nails, kiitos, koitan jossain vaiheessa perehtyä!

    Angie, thank you!

    *adictaalshopping*, I have used the palette 3 times now, and haven't yet figured an easy to way to work with it! And I checked your blog, Young Punk makeup was awesome!

    SingaporeSling, thanks! <3

    Sheila, thank you!

    CanDé Faces, only one layer in the palette, yes :D I think this one was quite cheap too, thinking the size and all :D

    Padmita, shipping was... $9,95 if I remember correctly. My friend ordered 10 NYX Pearl Manias and a jumbo pencil in the same package too, so I think it was quite cheap :)
