Makeup for frugal ladies...

I ordered a grip of NYX eye shadows and lippies from cherry culture. Getting my order processed was a beeeeetch, but it went through. Lady L ordered some stuff with me, since shipping to my country is NOT CHEAP. Plus, them effers don't send to APO or FPO adresses. They messed up my order once after checkout, but got that sorted out. I almost canceled the whole order, but since it went through, I decided to stick with it this time. I have a sour aftertaste from this whole mess so I'm not sure if I'll ever order from them again.

So expect a lot of EOTD's and FOTD's after I receive this haul. I am trying not to buy M.A.C makeup (unless it's a limited collection) until I save up more money. I love the color variation and consistency of NYX single eye shadows and Jumbo Eye Pencils. Right now my Holy Grail shadow base is the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese (shimmery white). My eye shadow lasts the entire day without creasing or fading...Serious talk! Of course I use UDPP first.

Here's my order...It's a LOT, I know! Don't hate! LOL. If I had shopped at M.A.C or another high-end brand, I would have only been able buy half the quantity...so I think I got a good deal...is this a bad way to think? Probably, but WHO CARES??? Online shopping is my crack.

I just found your blog from Musings of a Muse's list and have really been enjoying it! I just received a huge order from CC myself and while the shipping time did seem to be on the slower end (I'm in the US), it got here safe and sound and everything was perfect.

Aren't NYX products great? I just got the Cream Cheese shadow myself. :D

O_O DAMNN.

Emilee @ GMM said...

Wow, that's a huge order! It does seem like a lot of money, but the way I see it, the amount you get with $150 from Cherry Culture vs. MAC is a big difference!

Looking forward to your posts. :)

Gee said...

DANG! That's alot of stuff! But you know, NYX is a really good deal so you definitely got a bang for your buck!

imee said...
