Sunday Stash Shopping #100: Rosebay Garden

WOW! My stash shopping series has just hit number 100. Who would have thought I’d stick to it for so long… LOL! I initially started this to showcase some older makeup and to decide whether or not they’re still good to keep. Then, it turned into a post just to show how I wear some makeup, be it new or old.

I wanted to do a proper review on the Laneige eye palette, but I’m just too lazy. It’s my first ever eye palette from Laneige, and I bought it on a whim, because I was feeling a little experimental and also a little impulsive. Of all the shades available, I chose one that I don’t have in my collection, and that is this sort of warm-ish pink. This palette is called the Rosebay Garden.

I really dislike pink eye shadows but this kind of warm bronze pink is another story. Here are the swatches.

From this, I thought it looked similar to Viseage Theory Palette in Nuance. I could be wrong. Have you tried any eye shadows from Viseart? I’m very curious, but it’s not a wallet friendly brand either! I have my eye on Minx and Nuance, and I don’t need any of them, of course. These Laneige eye shadows are not super pigmented, but they are not sheer either. I’d say for me, these eye shadows are a happy medium. It gives a nice natural look on, which I think is very in line with most Korean makeup.

I wore it with a neutral blush and a light pink lip. I honestly don’t remember what I used, sorry. But we’re talking about the eye shadows here. See how they are not jarringly pink? I look made up, but not overly so… and this is just the way I like it.

I am very afraid of heavy makeup with obvious contouring. Those drag makeup, first of all, is very hard to do. It is only for the skillful, and I am not. Secondly, it’s just not my cup of tea. No no. Some makeup looks I see on Instagram, while can be pretty, do make me cringe often. What is your style of makeup? Do you have a soft spot for theatrical makeup, or do you like yours natural and subtle? I’ve always favoured neutrals, but lately, all those warm oranges and warm pinks are warming up to me! (Hence the lemming for Viseart Nuance)

  • So pretty on you! I still don’t know how to wear pink eyeshadow. Lucky you can pull it off. My style is usually natural and neutral (neutral tending to taupes because browns easily turn extremely orange on me), though sometimes I’ll go bold with black smokey eye.

      Thank you Sofia!! How’s your pregnancy going? When are you due?

      • On 16th January i.e. I’ve mentalized myself to think anytime now! We did a scan when I was 35 and a half weeks, and she was already 2.975kg… so looks like she’s gonna be big! Ouch! We can’t wait to see her face now 🙂

          That’s soon! My sister in law is due early February but she’s quite small. Ah, you must be excited!! The first baby, oh I promise you, you’ll feel the miracle of life. It’s indescribable. I’m so excited for you too!!!

          • Awww thank you! Yes we are so excited!

            • Lily

              Very close now, Sofia. I hope you’re resting well and getting ready for a brand new momma life!!

  • You already know my style of makeup, usually it’s very natural but occasionally I play around with heavier eye look. I’m getting better with eyeshadows these days but every now and then I still do an ‘oopsss!’ and look like I got punched or something. LOL! I have 1 Viseart palette and it’s soooooo pretty and honestly love it! The pigmentation and the way the shadows blend are beyond dreamy!

      I need to try Viseart one day. I’m organizing my stash, and there are so many palettes I’m going to give to friends and family. It doesn’t even make sense to buy new ones, so I’m going to be strong and not buy anything. I’m hoping I won’t crumble too soon. HAHAHA!
