It feels like this post has been long overdo! This has been sitting in my drafts for a very long time now just waiting to be written, but truthfully, my inspiration hasn't been in my side lately. WELL! Worry not, it's here! I've been trying to make a habit of testing out products for you guys (totally inspired by Tati who does this for a living and does so always so flawlessly!), on the drugstore side to see if I'd recommend it to you guys or not. That's my main goal for me as blogger. To find something that is really inexpensive but really really good. Because sometimes it can feel like you're searching for a needle in a haysack, you know? Which is precisely where this post comes in!

I know, and I'm sure you've also heard, of Born Pretty Store; a whole-sale sort of online shop for 'girly' cute acessories, fashion and beauty. Because it's a wholesale site, the prices are really low and it ships free internationally. Right away, you think... this is too good to be true. That's exactly what I thought anyway, so when they reached out to me to test out some products I decided it would be a great opportunity to show you guys if they're worth it or not. Specifically, I'll be reviewing these two items from the Born Pretty Makeup Shop: this palette & Shimmer Stick.

First off, the package took SO long to arrive. I know it comes from Signapore or Hong Kong and I didn't pay for any of this so I wasn't expecting it to arrive in like three weeks or anything, but it was insane! It came to the point that I literally thought it got lost in the mail. When it finally arrived, the shimmer stick was messy like there was some black... stuff?... in it and the middle brown shade in the palette looked like someone put their finger in softly... like there was a fingerprint. But other than that, it was fine. I wasn't too bothered by this but  just thought I should let you guys know.

Shimmer Stick by Nanda
  • Price: $2.83 
  • Shade Chosen: Pink
  • Product Description: "Create perfect face,and exquisite makeup. Make your face even more vivid and stereoscopic. Be suitable for professional use and home use."
  • Review: Surprisingly, I really liked it. It's exactly what it says it does, it shimmers. Don't expect a glow but it's not a chunky glitter either. This is a perfect medium ground. It blends nicely and doesn't dry down to the point where you'll see your dry patches. It's nice... very very nice! It's very subtle and for $3 this was a very good surprise!

i. shimmer stick / ii. first row shades from left to right of palette
Earth Tones Palette
  • Price: $6.99
  • Shades: 15; 11 shimmers and 4 matte colors.
  • Product Description: "100% brand new. It can fit your need to create beautiful facial looks. The color lasts all day without fading or creasing."
  • Review: I was very surprised by the pigmentation of these shimmer shades, especially the blue ones! The matte brown shades you see below aren't that great, they're more or less my own skin color so there. Also, it doesn't reaaaaaally last all the day, they definitely fade throughout the day. They blend okay, like it didn't blow my mind or anything, but it wasn't bad. I usually take the metallic shades for the lid or the center of the lid with my finger and that's it. I have done looks with only this palette and, like I said, they fade. I like how many colors you get for the price though.
