review: C.B. 16 color eyeshadow & BOB crystal lipgloss

I got the opportunity to work together with Born Pretty Store and I was really happy to choose something from their website as I always wanted to order from them through their eBay store. They offer a huge amount of all things related to make-up, nail art and other things.
I chose a 16 color eyeshadow box and a lipgloss and I show you both of them including some swatches! How does that sound? (;

C.B. color box 16 colors eyeshadow, $17.86

First: I'm not sure if this price is correct. When I chose this I think it was cheaper... but I don't know anymore, sorry for that! All of these 16 eyeshadows are shimmery. They have a really shimmery, sometimes glittery overspray but when you rub that away the true shade will come to the surface. I have to say I'm pleased with the pigmentation, because I didn't expect much from it. (:
There are two color combinations available, I got #01! A mirror and also an eyeshadow sponge are included in the box.
You can see from my swatches above how nice they are! All swatches were made with an eyeshadow base! I will show some eye make-up looks with the palette when I have a little more time for it. (:
My rating: (3/5)

BOB crystal ligloss, $3.21

For this cheap price you get a decent lipgloss (12 ml). The color I got (#10) looks really peachy with golden glitter particles in it, but on the lips it's rather on the transparent side. A plus is that you don't feel the small pieces of glitter and it looks pretty on the lips. I would actually use this as a topper, for example on a pink lipstick - would look good! :D If you like rather transparent lip shades, then this is a lipgloss for you. It's not sticky and well scented and other than the poor pigmentation of this shade I have nothing to complain about! (:
I won't show any lip swatches because you can only see the golden shimmer on my lips - still nice! :D
My rating: (3/5)

Overall I'm really pleased with the customer service of Born Pretty Store and also of the help of Alicia, who helped me to chose the items and sent it to me. Greetings to you! (:

  9. I love the eyeshadow colours but nearly $18 seems a lot to me for eyeshadow, I'd normally only spend £10 and I'd rather spend less haha.

    1. Hmm~ I think it's okay. It's just a little more than 1$ for one eyeshadow~ (:

  10. I really love the lipgloss! truth be told I'm a huge fan of lipgloss. :D I have multiple lipgloss in different colours. would love to give the lipgloss a try. :)

  17. Huch, bei dir siehts ja ganz anders aus!!! Voll hübsch! Gefällt mir voll gut die Farbkombi vom Design und das Profilbild ist sooooo sooo soooo hübsch! Du hast aber auch ein Porzellan-Gesicht!
    Also der Lidschatten gefällt mir echt gut muss ich sagen. Aber ich wurd auch angeschrieben und da waren die Sachen tatsächlich günstiger mein ich. Wie du ja schon schreibst. Muss aber auch sagen dass ich von dem Lidschatten auch nicht so ne tolle Farbabgabe erwartet hätte. Mir gefällts echt gut. Und so Glosse sind ja gerade im Sommer immer ganz cool. Da find ichs aber auch extrem wichtig, dass man diese Glitzerpartikel nicht spürt. Hast echt 2 tolle Sachen ausgesucht :-)

  18. I ike the bottom colours, they're flawless! And the gloos looks really nice for pouty lips!
    Lovely Blog, would you minf checking out mine?
