IPKN Glosses & FINALLY THIS PALETTE!



I have been DYING to try these IPKN glosses! 

They are I believe Korean and they are HUGE tubes! and best part...the come with coordinating mini glosses that can be used as a phone charm or keychain! 

I've heard a lot of good things about these glosses but I can't say I am AS impressed as people were hyping them up to be (I guess I just expected more pigmentation (these are more sheer with one coat than NARS Turkish Delight but better texture and taste, these are also more buildable without getting crazy to me.)) BUT I still really like them and am glad I got them. They may grow even more on me, I have only tried them on once so far (they just came today) They didn't nude out my lips as much as I would love but these are still really good! VERY pretty colors!

Everyone also talks about how huge the tubes are...which they are BUT if you look at the bottom you can see that whole thing isnt filled with gloss it just has hefty packaging and I couldn't find a weight to see how much was ACTUALLY in there. But theres def. a good amount. Would probably take a long time to go through! 

I purchased these from PrettyandCute.com and were $18.99 each.
You can now use my PROMO CODE: HOLLYANNAEREE
for 5% OFF your entire order! Any products on the prettyandcute.com site : )

 I love both the colors I really can't choose one or the other. I picked Babydoll Pink (PK52) and Juicy Orange (OR61) Both are milky pastels (you can see that they are kind of sheer in the swatches, thats only one swipe.)

THEY ARE DEFIANTLY BUILDABLE COLORS! You can also pair these over lipsticks but I like glosses that can stand alone as well as look great over a lipstick and these fit the bill!

PHOTOGRAPH REALLY WELL for me!

I would re-purchase (although I dont think I will have to for a whileee!) and am thinking of buying the Coral and Raspberry as well! (I don't want to try and of the shimmer ones really..I like milky cream colors best)


And I also got a super amazing gift from my friend and fellow youtuber, Molly : ) She sent me the Urban Decay NAKED palette that I could not get my hands on! I had just about give up hope especially since they are going to start making these with a brush instead of the double ended eyeliner. 

(she also sent me a really awesome picture frame that she made butttt unfortunatly it broke in the mail but I think I can just replace the glass part and it'll be okay.

So Molly if you read this THANK YOU SO MUCHHH! x100000000 : )

  1. I recently got ahold of the Naked Palette too! I absolutely love it. I have to admit I'm really disappointed with UD because they're replacing the eyeliners with a brush...which part of the reason I wanted the palette was to get the brown liner. But I've lost a lot of respect for them for doing that due to their short comings and then bumping up the price because of putting a brush in instead.

  4. That's right, IPKN is Korean brand. And I never knew they're working on other makeup stuffs other than powders (They're famous for their powder products :D) And I hope you can make some makeup tutorials using Naked Palette!
