• MUFE Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer
• DryBar Detox Dry Shampoo
• UD All Nighter Setting Spray
• Sephora Cream Lip Stain (Always Red)

I tried on the mascara and it impressed more than I thought it would ! It wasn't clumpy despite me brushing it thru repeatedly and in fact, it separates my lashes the way I like it. It adds length and it really looks super bomb irl. It doesn't state if it's waterproof but it held my curls and only budged with my oil-based remover so I'm gonna go with yes. Which is a plus point!

The brush doesn't look like it will give me that kind after-effects at all! When I was it, I was expecting clumpy lashes but noooo, so wrong!! This is so nice to use albeit a little chunky!

I also tried on the MUFE Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer to show y'all the effect! It's a very mattifying primer and does a pretty decent job blurring my pores 👍🏼 I tried the Nourishing one before and I like using that on the outer part of my cheeks where it tend to be drier.

Also pls check out how awesome my skin is behaving. I'm trying out a few new stuff (Ikr. Damn itchy backside) and so far, my pores are approving 🙌🏼👍🏼

The Sephora cream lip stain (Always Red) really blew my mind tho. It was SO COMFORTABLE! What have I been missing out on! The color is SO RICH and look at how it doesn't settle into the lower lip fine lines at all! 

The smell reminds me alot of NYX SMLC and so does the texture. It isn't really liquidy at all. 

Anyhoo, I immediately went on to Sephora to check out other shades cause this shade is just alil TOO loud. But good job on making me check out others 😂

I heard they pushed a whole lotta new shades for this range so I'm gonna go see if I can get another one to try! 

I own a few of the UD Setting sprays and I know they work pretty great for me so yay to owning. travel size one. As usual, a sample perfume is included and it's another one to my collection 😂

I also got a dry shampoo from DryBar! I'm not a huge fan of dry shampoo tbh and I normally use my loose powder but I would still try this out for sure. Will see if it leaves the icky feeling!

Overall, I'm really satisfied with this month's box! Aside from the dry shampoo, pretty much everything in there I would definitely use. The mascara made me really excited and I can't wait to use it again leh omg.
