Giant Haul Review: Canmake, Diamond Lash, Etc.

So my haul came! I ordered a bunch of make-up with Shirley. Check out her blog as well if you are a make-up fanatic! Anyways, I ordered Kate eyebrow pencil, two sets of Diamond lashes, a Canmake palette, Canmake lipstick + gloss, and a Visee Palette.

Canmake's Melty Nude Lipstick in Baby Beige! I heard a lot of good things about this so I caved in. I love nude lipstick anyways!


How it looks like unboxed. First of all, even though the hexagonal pattern on the tip of the lipstick is really really beautiful, its not very good for applying.  After four uses, I finally broke it in.

A swatch of it. I was surprised at how light it looked on my skin! Love it!

Score: 5/5 I love how pigmented this lipstick in. I don't even need any lip primer! It goes on REALLY smooth and its so thick. I'm not a fan of sheer lipstick AT ALL so when I put this on I was so happy. Packaging wise, the hexagonal tip doesn't really add or subtract from the product. This color wasn't overly orangey or pink. It was the perfect shade of "nude". Its a LOT better than Myth from MAC, IMO. This color is more "sweet" and puckering.

Canmake Nudy Glow in Peach Milk.

A photo of it without all the packaging! I like the sleek design of this. Its fun and cutesy without being too over the top and girly girl.


No swatch of this but heres a photo of the color. Its pretty true to life. 

Score: 5/5 DAMN THIS LIPGLOSS IS AMAZING. It goes on so thick and creamy. It doesn't have much shimmer but I don't really care about that for lips anyways. Definitely pair this up with the lipstick for a totally juicy lips. Damn I can't get over how nice these go together. GOOD JOB CANMAKE!

 Canmake Melty Nude Lips in Baby Beige, Canmake Nudy Lips (gloss) in Peach Milk on my lips. Definitely kissable ;) !

Viseii Blackish Forming Eyes in B-3

THE PACKAGING ON THIS THING IS AMAZING. Okay, nothing says classy like breaking out some reptile print on your palette. It feels expensive and mature. None of that kira kira cutesy packaging on this! SERIOUS BUSINESS.

No mirror? Hmmmm.... I love the little patterns on the shadows.

Swatch of the colors. The black is a LOT darker than this but the lighting washed it out a bit.

Score: 4/5 I was actually going to give this a 3.5 but I decided to bump it up after considering how much palettes here cost. The cost of this was around... twentyish? It seems expensive, but not for the colors you are getting. I mean, an urban decay eyeshadow is seventeen dollars.

Overall, I think this palette is good if you are into dark, dark make-up (like I am). You get all your basic smokey eye colors and its pretty pigmented. There wasn't anything that wowed me but nothing that disappointed me either if that makes sense. I like it a lot but I wanna see how far I can push the colors before I really decide if I LOVE it.

Canmake Four Shiny Eyes in Bitter Coffee

A very very small palette. Its a lot smaller than the Visee one.

Oh Canmake... You did so well with your lip products only to fail miserably with your palettes.

Score: 1/5 Okay, the swatches here look alright. However, I would NOT recommend any one to buy this palette... Unless you want something for emergency purposes in your purse. It wasn't really a waste of money since I think I got it for around ten, twelve dollars. Thats really a bargain(hence, the one star)! However, the colors didn't really pop. Though they appear shimmery here, they are matte in person. There was really no depth to these colors. I used them with some shimmer powder over and SO MUCH BETTER! I like matte eyeshadow but these colors looked so dull without any shimmer or shine.

Kate Eyebrow Pencil in BR-3

I originally got this eyebrow pencil because though I love my Brow Gel + Shadow kit, its ginormous and I never bring it out. When I got this pencil I noticed how SMALL it was. I mean Its ... pretty damn small compared to my hands. I don't have giant hands either... I guess I got what I asked for...

Swatch of it. Its a bit darker than this but not that much.

Score: 2/5 THIS PENCIL IS SO WAXY... I mean its still usable but its not soft at all! I know some people really like shaped, stencil eyebrows but I am not one of those people. Its really harsh and unblendable. Why did I give it a 2 then? Because its waterproof. I tried showering with it and scrubbing, did not budge. The next day I still had a teeny mark on my hand where I drew the marks. So if you want a small pencil to bring to the gym you should try it out.

Diamond Lash in Glamorous Eye

Score: 5/5 Okay so after I tried Diamond Lashes the first time (in fairy eye) and grew to dislike them, I decided to give Diamond Lash another chance. I saw these and they looked alright. The band is stiff which I like a LOT! Some people prefer soft bands but I like my lashes to keep their shape. Oh my god these are my HG lashes! I can not get enough of these. They give the effect of two or three layers of eyelashes with one band! Super fluffy!

I also got Diamond Lash in Model Eye. Do you notice something terribly wrong with these lashes? YES! Shirley stuck some of the Diamond bottom lashes she got in my packaging. Oh Shirley <3. I'm not sure which ones she got but they came with a band. The Model Eye does not come with a band at all. I actually gave a pair to Toge since she likes individual lashes so much.

Score: 2.5/5 STAY AWAY!... sorta. I have such mixed feelings about these lashes. I hate individual lashes but these are soooo pretty. They are a bitch to put on because they are flimsy and rip. When I put them on, I went through one and a half pairs because I kept dropping the small pieces, lashes kept ripping, and it was just a hot mess. I put lashes on really quick (5 minutes for top and bottom). With these I took 15-20 minutes JUST FOR THE BOTTOM ONES -- and I'm a veteren at that! After I took them off and laid them in my eyelash box, they clumped together so now I have a giant ball of used eyelashes... However, they do look A LOT BETTER than strips so I guess I'll save whatever I have left over for special occasions. I have to say I will definitely NOT repurchase these.

My Look for Today!!

Items used: Viseii Palette, Diamond Lash in Glamorous, Diamond lash in Model Eye, Kate pencil in BR3, Shimmer Powder from Shirley.

Eyes Opened: Damn I fucking love those top lashes!! Sex Kitten status!

A photo of the side to show how dramatic the lashes look! I love it! I'm also wearing the Canmake lipstick+ gloss.

Front view of my make-up. I love dramatic make-up. The funny thing is that I took a bunch of photos... But I looked SO WEIRD in all of them because the lashes were SO DRAMATIC, it looked like I had photoshopped my eyes ten times bigger or something. I actually had to sift through photos to find the one that I looked most natural in HAHA.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with my purchase. The good outweighed the bad definitely and I have a use for everything I buy so I'm sure I'll hit the pan on a few shadows soon!

On another note, I am so glad that I have followed my New Year resolutions and have become proactive in blogging. Damn, 11 blogs in March? COMMITMENT! I hope it doesn't fall through!

Until Next Time,

    I think Shirley did a haul video with these because I DEFFO remember those lashes... I'm glad the Glamorous worked out -- extremely sad about the others that weren't up to snuff. :( I've really wanted to buy a few products from Japan, but it's hard to know where to go. ?.? (I mean, unless you're in Japan. Which I am not. And will not be for at least another year bawww)

    ALSO: Those Nudy Greys are making me think that I should get my hands on some! Aaah, so gorgeous~

    @Cushy I never thought about using them as a base! I should totally try that for darker colors :3 My friend just gave me this MAC supergloss that is pretty dark so I'll try that! Thanks for the tip!

    @Grace My friend ordered them online from apopofkawaii! but IDK if they are sold out or not cuz they were sold out of a LOT of things... and I think they aren't doing shipments because of the tsunami for a month or two..

    LOL your mom is so cute. My older aunts think its so weird I would actually want PALE lips haha!

    @headphone_kids OH yeah she did do a haul video! The other ones didn't show up on my eyes. It just looked like my natural lashes ): YOU SHOULD GET NUDYS or super nudys if you are into big things... like i am... LOLOL!!! I like skincare tutorials because I think skincare is more important than make-up!

    @Nani ORDER THEM ONLINE! yeth i do always love your nose because my nose looks flat in the front but its not . - . i just wanna rip your nose off... and store it... not creeper at all... -smile-
