Cherry Culture Review

I recently made a hefty purchase from Cherry Culture!!! CC sells all different cosmetics products from such names as NYX, LAsplash , Playboy and Milani.. To be honest I never heard of most of the names but I stayed opptimistic and kept looking.. The prices were awesome and they seemed to have stuff that i would use!! However I did do my research and what seems to be the biggest problem is the swatches but I took the chance and continued to order.

I ordered on the 19th and it was delivered on the 24th so 5 days.. Hmm it seemed alot longer maybe the anticipation. CC ships USPS and my order came in a sturdy box and it was securely shipped with paper tightly wrapped around my products. It also included an invoice. Everything was there and in perfect condition. They even included a free lip balm , which I love!! Shipping was free over $40.00


Amuse 10 palette in pixi:
The colors are white, green, purple , hot pink, blue, yellow, orange, a tealish color, gold and black ( all the colors are a frosty type colors)

I used this a couple times and I really don't care for it.. For 1 the shadow is more creamy then dry and while it is pretty well pigmented .. it does not blend well at all and actually flakes.

Nyx single eyeshadow : White / matte

Its a simple white matte shadow I have used this a few times and love it. It goes on easy peesy!!

Jordana color effects eyeshadow : Yellow

This is a great yellow shadow it goes on easy and blends pretty good! I probably wouldn't ever get it again but I am happy with the purchase!!

Nyx Chrome Loose Powder : Platinum

This was actually one of the items I was most excited about , I am not a silver shadow wearer but thought it was pretty, However I was a bit disappointed with this item. For 1 when you open it shadow gets everywhere. i guess that is because there is no sifter there is a cover but its a pain to get out and when you do the product gets all over. The color is pretty but not the intense silver i was thinking/ hoping it would be. So all in all I was sad about this and don't see myself wearing it often.


L.A. Girl Fineline : Black

This is a black liquid liner  and what really made me look at this is that its like a pen! I really am 50/50 on this product though on the pro side It is like a pen and holds good, It also does have a fine line. On the con side you have to keep re-dipping every few seconds and that gets irritating

Amuse soft eye pencil : Metallic green , Metallic pink and Silver

Metallic Green- Its a pretty green sort of metallic, but you have to keep going over and over for a decent color pay off

Metallic Pink- I really love this color , It's very pink and while you do have to go over a couple times it does have a great color payoff!!

Silver - this is my least fav of the 3 , it hardly shows on the eyes and yes its silver but come on I want it to show a bit

Now the thing that irritated me about these is the cap do not stay on for anything. You turn the pencil upside down and it comes off. Maybe its me but that's aggravating.

LA Girl Endless Auto Eye Pencil: Olive ,Lilac and Teal

Now I am not going through the colors with this one but when I swatched them they came out wonderful on my wrist but when trying to apply them to my eye they didn't show up hardly at all. I defiantly will not be ordering any of these again

NYX Crystal Liner : Crystal Jade

I LOVE THIS!! It is so pretty and the perfect teal turquoise color. It goes on great and stay there!!  The applicator wasn't my favorite applicator though , its kinda flimsy but I can look past that because the product is fantastic!!

Lip Liner, Lip gloss and Jumbo pencil

Nyx Jumbo Pencil: Milk

I Love this, Oh my goodness!! I use it as a primer and it works great, doesn't crease and stays all day. and unlike MAC paint pots it comes off nice and smooth.

Nyx Long Lip Pencil :

This is a good lip pencil.. Its a great brownish shade that goes on and smudges well.

Nyx Girls round lip gloss : Kiss and Brown Topez

Kiss- A light pink with sparkles. The color is great and the sparkles are very faint and not overpowering. This is actually one of my favorite glosses . A lot of people say it smells funky but personally I think it smells like juice

Brown Topez- A light almost bronze brown with sparkles. Now I really dont know why I got this color cause I'm not really a brown gloss type of person but I am actually happy with it.. It not a hardcore brown so it doesn't wash me out. The smell is the same

The shadow swatches were done over Nyx Jumbo pencil milk

I also order 2 other products that aren't shown
Nyx smudge brush-  Its a small brush and is soft but has the firmness I need . It does what I need it to do!
Jordana Lip pencil  in wild orchid - This is my fav lip pencil and the reason it isn't shown is cause I actually lost it earlier , I was super upset lol. But no need to worry I just found it!! I it a lovely shade of pink kind of a pink purple . It goes on beautifully!!

So would I order agian?? Yes , I already have!!

Pros: It was easy shopping. The packaging was secure and they even included a free lip balm. A lot of the products I really do like!

Cons: Swatches weren't accurate. Some of the products while cheap, were not worth it.

All in all a good experience, I just have to be careful and order from certain lines

Remember " Play Hard , Look Fabulous" !!


  1. yes! i love the nyx jumbo pencils i will be ordering one in every color!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. omg me too!! i just ordered the black one!! I am gonna have some insane smoky eyes!!

  3. That is a seriously awesome haul! The NYX pigment looks so pretty. If you try it over Hard Candy primer It will make it more intense. TRUST ME. :D

  4. I have that same NYX pigment, I used it wet to make it more metallic, but meh.

    If you want a great silver powder pigment, I suggest: Detrivore's Shroud, Lime Crime's Mirror Mirror OR MAC platinum. The latter is a pro product but you can find samples online!

  5. I did actually try it wet and it does make it more intense but for some reason i thought it was gonna be like silver silver..lol like bullet silver.. but i will def check your suggestions out!! thanks for the feedback!!

  6. Thank goodness I do research before buying stuff, I was just about to order the LA girl endless auto eye pencils, when i naturally wondered about the quality.Reading that it my not show up on my eyelids nicely is really giving me second thoughts. However, I wonder if it will show up on my medium-tan complexion? Is it possible that we can see pictures of how the LA girl endless auto eye pencil colors look through swatches?

  7. Hi Anita, The wax used is real tough.. it does eventually go on but you have to keep going over and over. It also does not stay in my waterline very well. The teal color is the softest of the 3. Adding a tid bit of heat to the wax and using a brush works pretty well.I have a swatch above.. if you would like addition swatches please email me gunnmetal27@gmail.com!

  8. Lucky you had a pleasant time! I did my first order from Cherry Culture about a month and a half ago. It took 2 weeks to arrive and When I finally got it I noticed they sent me three of the wrong things within 5 minutes I contacted customer service which seemed friendly enough explained the situation gave serial numbers etc only to be told they would look into it and if It was found to be wrong I would receive the right products days later I was asked for photos of the products which I happily supplied then I was told that it was a manufacturers error and another week and a half later given store credit even though they were at fault and said they would send the correct items >.< and To be honest I don't even want to use the credit and pay the 5.99 shipping again to be let down lol so there it's going to stay unused.
