Pros
– sheer, easy to layer on color
– all wearable colors
– no greasy feeling, blends out very well, easy to use
– gorgeous packaging

Cons
– you dont get a ton of product in each bottle [but it should still last u a while]
– glass bottle is heavy and not suitable for travelling with.

Overall Thoughts:
Honestly speaking, i wasnt going to get these. Cos i thought..wow it looks kinda hard to use. And you would totally think that i think. However on instagram, a professional MUA [Mr Larry Yeo] highly recommended them for ease of use so i thought i would give them a go. And i am super pleased i did! It adds a wonderful flush and i like mixing up the mediums of my makeup items. A liquid blush [like REALLY liquidy]. Its kinda fun. And makeup should be fun.

In other news, i have done a boat load of shopping in the last couple of weekends. This is mostly due to the fact i needed to finish christmas present shopping. I *think* i am almost done now. But here are some random pics of stuff i spotted.

Cat shoes

Bow Handbag [reminds me of a liz lisa one i have in white]

And something i actually bought XD
mm-8
Yup boots! They are kinda like uggs [or mukluks] but with a platform. You can roll down the cuff too!
They are super warm and the platform wedge is very comfortable to walk in!

What about you? Have you done your christmas shopping?

Have a super week ahead
XOXO Yumeko

    I just picked these up myself but haven’t swatched them – but they are so cute! Initially I thought they were nail polishes until I took a closer look (and remembered that I hadn’t ordered any nail polish). I hope they swatch as well on me! Do you apply them with fingers or a brush?

    The bow bag is cute, and so are the boots! I’m still living in my mukluks from last year though I did pick up some UGGs :)

  2. Catherine says:

    Those are so cute!! Hm, I have never tried liquid blush… but I ordered a Beaute set with Justine so maybe I will see if I like it and get a couple of these hehe. Fun sounds good!

    And omgggg I totally want those kittie flats!! LOL!

    Hope you are having an awesome week Yume! :)

    • Bittenbefore says:

      they are kinda like benefit benetint!
      beaute? i am unfamiliar with that brand XD

      the flats are cute indeed! kinda like the exp ones from marc jacobs

      • Catherine says:

        Ahh, I see. I’ve never used Benetint! Idk it always seemed kind of hard to me lol, I’m so chicken, I’ve only used powder products until Kay sent me a the Visee mineral cream blush. But yea! Beaute is pretty famous for their lip/cheek stains. They’re a Canadian brand and they had a 30% off promo for Black Friday so I ordered with Justine hehehe. ^^;; The founder is a pretty famous makeup artist, he does Kristen Stewart all the time.

        & yea! That’s totally what they look like! Except I like that they are black with the glitter, so cute!

  3. kuri says:

    Glad to hear they’re good, as I was planning to get one or two of these. Now your review makes me want to get all of them!
    But I’ll start with just one :)
    Makeup should definitely be fun. The packaging looks fantastic!

  4. Anna says:

    Been contemplating for the longest time whether to get ‘em. They’re cute and relatively cheap, but I never use cream products. Awwww what to do, what to do

  5. birkie says:

    totally want the Shell Pink one ♥

    Oh, and I have been tagging you as you always give us so many fantastic opportunities to make a favourite or colour-post too ;P

    now i am tempted to pick up these too, i am a total blush addict! >.<

  7. Vicky says:

    Oo now that I’ve seen the swatches on a bigger screen I kinda want all of them…. -_- hahaha!! And I love the packaging XD

  8. Nikki says:

    I will be giving these a try too!! They look really nice and I love the cute packaging!

  9. Gracie says:

    Ooh..I saw it in Watsons a few days ago. Just didn’t have the time to swatch them. I think I”ll go test them out real soon!
    Thanks for the review!
    I didn’t know Larry Yeo has an instagram acc. Will go check him out. I love seeing his makeup demo.
    I have been meaning to ask u this before, I’m a silent reader of your blog for a few years, I notice u mention a
    couple of times that u love the KPalette 24hr liner. I was wondering how do u remove them?
    I find it really hard to remove even after pressing my cotton pad soaked with bi-phase eye makeup remover.
    I usually use the L’Oreal biphase lip & eye makeup remover or Lancome’s biracial but still have a difficult time removing them completely.

    • Bittenbefore says:

      i havent had any problems removing them with lancome bifacil but perhaps because my skin is quite oily so the liner doesnt stick XD
      do u wear eyelid primer? if u do and draw the liner over tat, i think its easier to remove for you [so it doesnt "stain" your skin] hope this helps!!

  10. at first i thought it was nail polish (even after reading the title…. ==) but it’s so cute! I love the majolica majorca designs~ so appealing! all the colours you picked up are so cute too! I’m assuming cat themed items are very in right now :P super cute winter boots =D

  11. ani says:

    hi, would you consider doing outfit of the day posts? i would love to see what you wear!

    • Bittenbefore says:

      aww thanks but no, i dont really want to do a fashion blog cos i am super unfashionable. also i go to work at like 5.30am daily. no time to get pics / no full length mirror at home. XD
