RBL Haul!

Yesterday was my big actuarial exam which I have been preparing for since June. The exam was two sessions of 3 hours 15 minutes each, so basically I left home at 7:30 am and got home at 5:30 pm, with tons of torture in between.

Luckily, when I got home, my RBL haul from Monday had arrived safely in my mail box :)

For myself, I ordered: 360, Diddy Mow, No More War, Chinoise, Cherry Love, and Plie. For my friend back in Canada, I got; Stormy, 360, and Dead Calm. After looking at Stormy and Dead Calm, I wish I had gotten them for myself as well! Oh well!

These are my first RBLs!


Here they are still boxed up.


And lined up :)

Cherry Love, Chinoise, Plie (flash)


Side view of mine :D


NMW - I'm wearing this right now as my NOTD and I'm not entirely sure if I love it on me or not. It reminds me of baby poop next to my skintone. What do you think?


360 - I do, however, adore this! Right up my alley and in my comfort zone!


360 macro - There is even super secret shimmer! Sorry about the bumpy bits there, I didn't use a base coat for these swatches and I must have had some curly bits coming off my nail.


Diddy Mow - I think the application of this was good, but not amazing compared to Sew Psyched. I think this may have been a touch sheerer than Sew Psyched, but I think I need to try them on side by side :)


Plie - 3 coats, not super impressed with this one, to be honest.


Chinoise - 2 coats, should have used 3. It looks a bit more orange leaning on my skin tone, so I'm glad I picked up the next one:


Cherry Love: LOVE this colour! The cap is different on Cherry Love and the brush is kind of poofy and hard to work with... anyone else have this same issue with these different (presumably older) caps? I figured I will wait a couple weeks until Ji is no longer packing orders 24/7 to ask about it.

  1. Awesome haul, girl! Out of these, I definitely like 360 the best. I had no idea it had that gorgeous shimmer in there.

    As for No More War...well, it is the kind of color that looks like baby poop on everyone. That's supposed to be part of the allure, I guess. Like, it's so ugly that it's pretty. LOL.
    Objectively, I don't like the color at all, but I don't think it looks particularly bad on your skintone or anything.
