A haul post—again?! Settle down, folks, I have a lot of reasons for this purchase. Granted, they may not be the best reasons but they’re reasons nonetheless. Also, these were purchased quite a while after I placed my first ASOS order. They got here quickly just because orders about £100 get a free upgrade to Express shipping. 🙂
In celebration of Valentines, Zuneta offered a 20% off coupon on all purchases so I jumped at the chance! Zuneta carries select brands like Korres, Hourglass, Rouge Bunny Rouge, and a personal favorite of mine, Le Métier de Beauté. I have been eying Le Métier de Beauté’s Indelible Inks and Rouge Bunny Rouge (because I want to see if I want to purchase them on my Japan trip), so this was the perfect opportunity.
Here’s what I got!
- Le Métier de Beauté Indelible Ink Eyeliner in Castalia and Artemis
- Le Métier de Beauté True Color Eyeshadow in Alexandrite
- Rouge Bunny Rouge Colour Burst Lipstick in Whim of Mine
- Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Eyeshadow in Solstice Halcyon
- Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Eye Pencil in Lola
- Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Lipstick in Fresco
- Korres Wild Rose Instant Brightening Mask
Here are some quick swatches in lieu of actual reviews. I’ll go through them in trickles and also spend a little bit more time testing them out and such before passing judgement. For the record, however, I’m pretty much in love with my purchases, so that’s good!

I wanted to see if I could make a look out of the stuff I bought and save for the blush, I whipped up a very quick, pretty decent one:
For this look, I used both eyeshadows (RBR Solstice Halcyon and LMdB Alexandrite), the LMdB Indelible Ink in Artemis on my upper lashline, the RBR Long-Lasting Eye Pencil in Lola on the outer third of my lower lashline, and the Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Lipstick in Fresco.
Other than those products, I tidied up my brows a bit, and used Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed on my cheeks. I didn’t use a face base or foundation, since I wasn’t planning on going out anyway. Just thought I’d test some of these out for ya.
That’s it for now! Super happy with my picks, so far, although I am on the fence about repurchasing the Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeliner just because the twisting mechanism is kind of flimsy. However, I do think the color is gorgeous.
And, a special exposé! The cons of online shopping: Super big boxes filled with packing peanuts! Seriously, this is how big the box that these items came in was.

Is it bad that I want to buy some Korres stuff just their labelling and packaging looks so good?
Also, I love the look you created with your purchases! You have a lovely skin tone and can definitely get away with not wearing foundation.
Not at all! The great thing about Korres is that the products themselves are pretty good, too 🙂
Oh, wow thank you!
Were they delivered straight to your home? I’ve been wanting to try Zuneta, if only for Rouge Bunny Rouge and easier access to Hourglass! 🙂
Yes, it’s door-to-door but they use DHL so I still had to pay Customs!
Lemmings!! Why! I love those Le Mertier Liners! They look like they perform beautifully. I’ve also really wanted to try Hourglass lipsticks, the formula was gorgeous when I swatched them in store. I can see how all these were purchased out of necessity 🙂
They’re seriously awesome; I was so surprised. I mean, I expected them to be good, but not that good! Glad to know you see this situation the way I see it, too. 🙂
The Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Lipstick looks good on you. 🙂 And it looks so moisturizing! Want!
Thanks, Bibi! 😀
i hate giant boxes!! lol. i recently got an hourglass lippie but have never bought anything from rbr or lmdb! 🙂
They’re so annoying! I know the point is to keep my merch safe, but you don’t need to stuff in ten thousand packing peanuts!
Off the bat, I have to say that I love everything I currently own from LMdB (Kaleidoscope Eye Kits, an eyeshadow, a gloss, a lipstick, a lip creme and the Indelible Eye Inks), and I love my RBR purchases as well. 🙂
Too many brands to explore!
