CHERRY CULTURE // Haul | First Impressions + Swatches - CassandraMyee
If you're a long time reader of CM, you'll know I love a good sale and just can't resist them. So when Cherry Culture had there annual 40% off everything sale, I went a little bit gaga for all the makeup! My cart ended up being very packed, but I managed to cut it down, whilst still picking up some items I've had on my 'to buy' list for a while from NYX and China Glaze.

NYX Slim Lip Liner Pencil in Fushia, Hot Red + Deep Purple // USD $3.50 each [Sale Price $2.10]
I have a couple of these and love them, they go on very pigmented and smooth, are totally matte and make a ton of difference to the life of your lipstick. They also look amazing on their own too. I went for a range of shades to cover my bases with a pink, red and dark purple, all of them I love! They have a huge range of shades and are just so cheap!

NYX Butter Lipsticks in Lollies, Cotton Candy, Gumdrop, Taffy + Little Susie // USD $6.00 each [Sale Price $3.60]
The main reason I wanted to order from CC was for the Butter Lipsticks; I've had my eye on them for ages, so the 40% just sealed the deal. It was SO hard to narrow it down to a few shades (really I wanted the whole lot), but I restrained and got 5 and I'll have a whole post dedicated to these coming up with swatches and a more in-depth review soon!

NYX Butter Glosses in Creme Brulee + Peaches & Cream // USD $5.00 each [Sale Price $3.00]
After being against gloss for a long time, I'm finally getting into them and the Butter Glosses definitely convinced me that glosses don't need to be sticky! I love these; they smell amazing, they also have great pigmentation, and they glide on smoothly without any yucky, tackiness - total winners.

NYX Powder Blush in Taupe // USD $6.00 [Sale Price $3.60]
This is constantly sold out on Beauty Joint every time I try and order it, so I finally found it in stock and during the sale too. People rave about this being the perfect contour shade, as it is more ashy in tone rather than orangey, so it looks like a more natural shadow. So far I am loving this and the hype for this is most definitely real!

NYX Single Eyeshadow in Innocent // USD $4.50 [Sale Price $2.70]
I've been so into palettes these days I forget about the humble single shadows! I think it was in a video from Lauren Curtis that she used this shade and it looked totally gorgeous, so of course I added it into the order and I'm very glad I did. It's one of those 'one swipe wonder' jobs that looks good with minimal effort.

China Glaze Nail Polishes // USD $3.50 [Sale Price $2.10]
The China Glaze polishes are already so cheap on CC, but with the discount it made them even more tempting! I went for four shades, Aquadelic from the Electropop collection, Shore Enuff from the Off Shore collection, and two from the Surprise collection; Shine-Nanigans and I'm A Go Glitter. I won't talk to much about these now as they'll all be coming up in recent NOTD posts, because I can't wait to use them!

I am very pleased with the products I picked up, especially at such a discounted price. The international shipping can get a little bit steep on Cherry Culture as it is all based on weight, so it pays to do a joint order, or wait til they have a free shipping offers, or more sales like this one!

Did you order anything during the 40% off sale? Or have you tried any of the NYX or China Glaze polishes I bought?
