Better Together Cheek & Lip Makeup Bag Set Review

9:00 PM

Hi!

I actually received this lovely pouch before my trip to Lombok but I ended up not bringing it. Think it's because the pouch looked too pretty to be crushed in my luggage and later when I returned from there.

So here's my not-so-late review of this.

P.s.: Honestly, I wouldn't have bought this, if it's not because of the pouch design. The products left much to be desired.. >.<"

RM165.00 from Sephora Website

Inner lining of the makeup bag

Yes, this is ONE pouch only, with different sides. It's already amazing that the shape is a heart, it's also a double-sided makeup bag. One is Too Faced, Jerrod's puppy Clover while the other Kat Von D, Kat's cat Piaf. I love the glitter on one side and the almost velvet feeling on the other. 

I show both sides of the makeup bag on my Instagram. Link on the right side of this blog and while there, please follow my Instagram if you haven't! :)

However, as you can see, the bag is fairly small and flat. You can't stuff most full-sized products into it else you might ruin the bag's appearance. 

Only option is to find mini sized products, which thankfully Sephora provides at their Travel section. Or you can stuff samples like those you get from magazines.

So this makeup bag is great for travelling on basic makeup only. Think that one red lipstick or a compact blush for an added rosy cheek.

Let's review the products inside.
Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder in Rosy Glow (golden sheer)
Too Faced Love Flush Blush in So Happy Together (peony pink)
Studded Kiss Lipstick in Muse (shimmering nude)
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in XO (matte oxblood)


Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder in Rosy Glow (golden sheer) 
 


Rosy Glow (Left) looks yellowish, almost a gold appearance. Coverage is quite sheer that can be build to semi-opaque. It's hard to pick up the product; it's dense and I tried using my finger. Not much can be seen for swatches. 

Rosy Glow (Right) is pale pink with a golden shimmer. It has a buildable coverage with softer texture but denser in the pan, not stiff or difficult to apply to the skin. This is also barely visible when swatched.

Swatches below, after the liquid lipstick review!

Too Faced Love Flush Blush in So Happy Together (peony pink)

This blush is a bright pop of medium pink with cool, bluish undertones. It's stiff and almost crumbly, making it harder to apply on my cheeks. Coverage is sheer and applying more doesn't help.

Studded Kiss Lipstick in Muse (shimmering nude)

This lipstick is a love-hate relationship for me. It's a medium, pinky-plum with warm undertones and a frosted sheen, a beautiful shimmer nude. It’s hydrating and creamy and honestly feels great wearing it.

However, my lipstick decided to suicide on me. T.T

When I first popped it, nothing happened. On the second pop, it literally jumped out from its casing and landed on the floor. Luckily, thank my stars, little damage was done as it landed vertically. Damn lucky it did and the fall wasn't high to make it crush on its own weight. Still, my heart skipped a beat as I haven't even applied it on my lips yet!

Guess it's the creamy formula so it isn't kept neatly in its casing. I do love the colour though.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in XO (matte oxblood)

This liquid lipstick is almost similar to her popular shade, Sante Sangre. This is instead a bit more on the cooler side of that. It's a deep, pinky-red and has a matte finish. When swatched, it is quite watery and dried out to a matte and transfer-proof finish. Also, it was hard to clean afterwards.

Ingredients List

If you are only attracted to the bag's design and won't mind using it to store basic makeup, you can consider this collection.

As the products are not satisfying for me, I am saying a no, unless I get the Studded Kiss Lipstick in Muse (shimmering nude), hoping they improved the formula. I wouldn't want another jumping lipstick.

Thanks for reading.

  14. Candlelight Glow is actually quite buildable so its best to layer it on with a fan brush as a highlight as you go along :) But the pouch is pretty cute for the collaboration that was done so I can certainly see the pull of it.
