Cherry Culture Haul SWATCHES!!!!

I've had some time to play with most of the products that I ordered from cherryculture a week or so ago, and I have to say that I am VERY impressed with the pigmentation of the L.A. Colors palettes, especially the SAND CASTLES palette.

The Jordana lipsticks are definitely worth trying out, they offer smooth application, nice pigmentation, and are so moisturizing. They do have that cherry aroma to them, so if you're sensitive to scents you might want to stay away from these, the smell is definitely noticeable. Also, two of the shades I ordered were supposed to be matte, but that was not the case at all... I guess you can say they have a soft shine to them, but they aren't even close to being matte.

On to the swatches! Hope you enjoy!

L.A Colors Mineral Spa Palette

L.A Colors Sand Castles Palette

Hollywood Red and Pom-tini look very similar in the photos but in person, Hollywood Red is truly bright red in color, whereas Pom-tini is a plummy-pink color.

As for the foundation, I like the texture and how it applies, but the color Honey is a bit too light for my face. I can make it work with a darker powder, but I think if these inglot foundations I ordered don't work out I'll try the next 2 shades down.
Out of the entire haul, my favorite items thus far are the Coffee Blend l/s and the PP in Sand.

  1. You have really nice lips! :)
    I've never tried any of these products but they look fab! I'm loving the LA eye candy palette! Gorgeous colours xx

  2. Why THANK YOU! The EYE CANDY palette is awesome, I was surprised that the color intensity was so nice, especially since the palettes were UNDER $2 each. I just grabbed another larger palette for $2 and the quality is consistently great with this brand.
