Review: GlossyBox Japan for the month of June

Before we start, i want to apologize for the photos in this post. i was trying out a new photo program [aperture] and i think i overdid it. I wanted to redo the pics but my schedule is really crazy this week so i didnt get a chance to do so.
Sorry!

Last month, i received my first GlossyBox and blogged about it. Several of you asked that i continue featuring them each month if i decided to continue buying them.
I didnt cancel my subscription so here is the month of June.

Weekly Photo Challenge #6 – Makeup Colors Edition

Its FRIDAY AGAIN!
Time to do another weekly photo challenge!
Regulars here will know the drill but for those new here..every Friday, i do a photo meme of 5 photos about different themes!!
Hope you guys join in!

Yumeko’s Weekly Photo Challenge #6 – Makeup Colors Edition
1. Black
For some reason i thought this would be pretty easy..cos all my eyeliners/mascaras etc are black in color.
However i wanted to take a photo that seemed mostly black so i had to choose things with black packaging as well as the color black XD [u dont have to, i am weird like that]
Untitled
FYI that black tube from illamasqua is actually lipgloss [in repulse]

2. Brown
Untitled
I wear a lot of brown to work. Or rather i used to.
But for some reason i never buy brown mascara or brown liquid liner XD
Eyeshadow colors from left to right : Ninimonica, NARS, Urban Decay, Parado and Loreal

3. White
This was another difficult one. [why didnt i choose an easier color!?]
Untitled
I rarely buy anything white i guess XD

4. Orange [since Sephora named it color of the year this year]
Untitled
Ok i thought i would have tons of items in orange. But apparently i do not XD [ok i know the loreal is more coral than orange but whatever i threw it in]

5. The most popular color amongst your makeup collection
Hands down..GOLD. I looooove wearing the color gold XD
Untitled
I probably own more gold colored items but i thought this made a good enough pic XD

Note: i chose not to include any palettes and featured only singles but you are welcome to show whatever you like :D
