I ordered this brushes from and I was afraid it will be held by german custom office, because packages from USA are their favorite 'to be held' , and ta-da! I was right !. I got a letter from lovely german custom office that my package is held by them and I have to come,declare the content and bring my bill print out. So there I go, but the staffs there were really nice,and I only had to open my package in front of them, they checked it and they let me go without having to pay any cent. YEY! 

The brushes are packed so nice and they don't look cheap at all. My first impression was : 'OMG They look so shopisticated green and environmental friendly.'lol

The brushes are so good esp the bronzer and buffing brush. The handle feels comfortable in my grip. The bristles are so soft and dense, really really nice. It feels so good on my face, almost like wellness. I use the buffing brush to apply my liquid foundation,and it works really well. In other hand, the bronzer brush is super fluffy! I am kinda confused how to use it, for sure not for bronzer, because it's just too fluffy. I use it for powder and it works just fine. 
The eye brushes are a little bit too small for my taste, but they're great for travelling,as they also come with flipcase and mirror. The quality is also really good. The bristles are soft,dense and well made. I only have a bit problem with their short handles, they're not the most comfortable to use, but still for the price,I think the brushes are really good.
And I have a tip for you, if you want to buy this brushes from iherb, do google for a discount coupon first,because I got 8$ discount hihi ^^.

What do you think about these brushes?

Make Up Academy Eyeshadow Palette - Dusk til Dawn

Okay this is the last post about my Make Up Academy Haul, I promise you. lol.
As I'm in deep deep love with my MUA Eyeshadow Palette in Heaven and Earth , I'm gonna review my other palette which is Dusk til Dawn.

*all swatches done without base*

Dusk til Dawn has basically more various shades from neutral to bright colors.I told myself to step outside my comfort zone and order this palette because I do need some more bright colors in my eyeshadow collection, so I will also be able to create more different looks for my 'Make Up of The Day' post.
Dusk til Dawn has 5 shimmer pearl shades , 1 brown, 1 yellow, 1 light grey, 1 bright teal, 1 glittery night blue , 1 indigo and 1 glittery black. All of them are good pigmented except the yellow shade which is kinda sheer. This palette has all the good things from Heaven and Earth Palette except for shade number 10 and 13 which are really dusty. The glitter particles are also quite big and chunky. 
So, another recommendation! go check the online store HERE

Have a nice day!
