Etude House Belle Purple Rose Lips Review & Swatches

Etude House Belle Purple Rose Lipstick

Etude House Belle Purple Rose Lips is one of two limited edition lipstick shades that launched with the Etude House Princess Happy Ending Collection.

You might have guessed the Etude House Belle Purple Rose Lips was inspired by Belle from Beauty in the Beast. Although I must say the purple doesn’t really have be thinking of Belle….! I always pictured Belle with more of a brownish nude shade on her lips.

Memebox Jackpot Box Unboxing


My Membox Jackpot Box came on last week! Yay! If you recall the Jackpot Box was $32 and was filled with a surprise selection of Korean skincare, makeup, and beauty.

Each random box shipped would include either a huge selection or a smaller selection this is why they called it a Jackpot box as you might just “win” something massive or you’d come away with a very nice but not as large selection of goodies.

I got mine a few days ago! Here’s what was inside!


Hope Girl Tin Tin Star Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Hope Girl Tin Tin Eyeshadow

I recently got my Hope Girl Tin Tin Star Eyeshadow when I purchased the Back to School Hope Girl Memebox. I actually got a randomly selected shade from Hope Girl in the color, Golden Brown (BR05). Perfect for me as I love brown eyeshadow!

Apparently the shadow is supposed to be extra long wearing with a mineral rich formula that doesn’t crease.

Let’s take a look!
