EOTD: Neutral

I promised my friend Yuko on Vox to do Neutral EOTDs, and yesterday I went out coz my bf wanted to reserve a new Play Station 3 Metal Gear Solid IV console, he hasn't bought PS3 yet and think this would be the best deal since he's also a fan of MGS.

Anyway, I decided to try out a Kirkland palette from Costco which I got a while ago, I got this along with my Kirkland lipsticks & lipglosses inside a makeup case set, so I have no idea how much this should cost alone. The colors are mostly matte, I'm quite surprised because they're actually not bad, I don't expect the super pigmentation like NYXs or TSS but I would say it's decent for a low end brand.

As you see this palette contains 10 colors, you can slide the top layer and find two brushes applicator along with a long mirror.

From these palette I used the two colors in the middle, Chocolate & Khaki.

These are what I use:

  • UDPP
  • Kirkland: Khaki (inner corner, 1/3 lid)
  • KATE by Kanebo: shimmery opaque color (middle lid)
  • Kirkland: Chocolate (outer V, up to the crease)
  • NYX: Aloha (highlight)
  • Revlon Liquid Eyeliner *I ran out of this in the middle of application!! gahhhhhh so pls bare with the messy looking liner*
  • Rimmel Soft Kajal Pencil Eyeliner (lower lid)
  • Maybelline Full'n'Soft mascara
Jordana Lipgloss: Natural

I love how Jordana l/g color pops and don't bother my messy ungroomed eyebrows T_T

Some love for you all LOL:
Hope you guys enjoy !

Christiana Divine @ Memoirs of A Shopping Addict said...

lol. YES! his freakn' limited edition game costed him freakn' $90.00. I was like, do you KNOW how much MAKEUP I could have bought with $90.00 versus your ONE game?! LOLOLOL. ;)

couple days ago when my bf found out how much those things costs, he glanced at me while I was putting on makeup and said "You're lucky the things you love don't cost you arm & leg..."

poor guys.

ditto, gimme $90.00 for makeups and I'll be all set for the next 6 months. errr maybe 3.

no, maybe less.

Thanks for the review! I've seen Costco make their own line of makeup, but never bought it. Okay, I did buy their mascara once but it wasn't that great.

good thing my man aint into games..LOL!!

I like how you're not picky when it comes to brands and bold enough to try costco makeup :)

it came out pretty damn good if you ask me..I love neutral makeup..xoxo

Nanzy said...

Audge: Kirkland is just alright imho, their lipglosses are quite nice, these palette is also ok, doesn't rock my socks like NYX does, but it's decent. I also got the mascara with the set but have yet to try...maybe I wouldn't if you said it's not good LOL

Nee: Yeah hahaha my bf is an addict, he wrote his under grad thesis about Massively Multiplayer Online Game -_-'

Thank you, I just can't see e/s palette laying around hehehe might as well use it right? I'm too pleased with the result, must try out other colors ^_^
