First Zuneta Haul: Look & Swatches

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!

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!

Zuneta Haul Swatches

Swatches, L-R: Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Eyeshadow in Solstice Halcyon, Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Lola, Le Métier de Beauté True Color Eyeshadow in Alexandrite, Le Métier de Beauté Indelible Ink Eyeliner in Castalia and Artemis

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!

  2. 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! 🙂

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. The Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Lipstick looks good on you. 🙂 And it looks so moisturizing! Want!

    • 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!
