Recent Purchases from Cydangie Beautyshop

My first 120 Palette & makeup brush set! Hiya Dolls, just wanted to share a quick ramble with you of a few purchases I made online from Cydangie Beautyshop .

I have been wanting to purchase a 120 palette for a VERY VERY long time, and I finally did. (Hey! It beats buying individuals!) Let me tell you how convenient having a 120 palette is! OHEMGEE. I don't have to go looking around for that particular shade of blue or green, it's all right THERE. I got a chance to use the 120 for the first time, during the christmas/wedding weekend I attended, (see the post here) which was great because I did different looks for all of the 3 days (so did my mum, I let her use it too!). The colors are nicely pigmented, which means you do not need to use a lot of product! I purchased it at approximately $25.00 + shipping, and it arrived in 1 week - - with not one but 4 BROKEN eyeshadows. Also there was some damage to my palette.. You can imagine my disappointment. < sighs > Similarly, I purchased a 120 palette + brushes for a friend as a gift (and hoped and prayed that nothing happened to hers!) and thankfully, her set was fine; all shadows intact and no damage. I guess it's just my luck! Har. Anyhow, overall I was very pleased, and I won't be purchasing eyeshadows for a very longggg time (since I have this palette)!

It's a clutch! Or is it? I wanted to share this GORGEOUS makeup brush set purchased from Cydangie Beautyshop a few weeks ago. I bought it on special for only $33.18 CDN for the set, (minus $5.95 for shipping!) which is a pretty good deal considering how much brush sets normally cost... It was well packaged and arrived on my door step in approximately 1-2 weeks which is not bad.

The brushes are made from Goat hair (just in case you were curious) and come individually wrapped in plastic, which is marvelous! I haven't had a chance to try them out yet, but I will definitely do a review once I have had a good using of them. Right of the bat, I was impressed buy the quality of the clutch, the material is quite sturdy and durable and I absolutely love the print! I love how all the brushes are in one convenient place! This clutch is perfect because you can literally roll it out, lay it flat and do your make up; and when you are done, just pop the brushes back into the slots, roll it up, snap it shut and VOILA! You are good to go! One thing I don't like, however,  is that the brushes are not named or numbered...but that's just my opinion! It is currently sold out, I am not sure if they will be getting anymore in, I got this at the whim of a second while I was browsing the page, I almost didn't see it! Too bad it doesn't have any pockets, or else I would've used it as a clutch for my next outing! haha!    
There are a total of 16 brushes which include the following:
  1. Face Brush
  2. Blush Brush
  3. Contouring Brush
  4. Large Shading Brush
  5. Small Shading Brush
  6. Fluff Brush

  8. Small Shader Brush
  9. Concealer Brush
  10. Fan Brush

  1. hey d brush set looks gud..n which eye shadows wer damaged in ur case ? cant see dos in d pic..dats y..

  2. Hey Bhumika!

    Yeah, the brush set is quite nice, I was surprised by the quality. It's hard to tell.. I took a few shots of the palette but I did not want to draw too much attention to that.

    However, I can tell you that from the top section one dark blue eyeshadow was damaged and it seeped into the other colors, (which made quite a mess) ... and from the bottom section another dark blue, a bright red and a purple were all damaged. I ended up emptying out the damaged shadows since they just made a mess and mixed with other shades in the palette...

    I hope that clarified things! xx.

  3. Pity that some were damaged, but 120! Definitely convenient.

  4. @S: Thanks for taking the time to comment! I know, it was quite disappointing, but I can live.


Drop me a line, I'd love to hear from you! I do read and appreciate all comments. ♥
