Review // Chateau Labiotte Wine Eye Shadow Palettes
I'm back with another review, this time about the Labiotte Wine Eye Shadow Palettes!
Labiotte, a brand owned by Tony Moly, has been quite popular since around last year, especially because of their Wine Lip Tints I have yet to try.
Like other roadshop brands they carry makeup as well as skincare. I haven't had the chance to try anything aside the eye shadow palettes so I guess I'll share my thoughts about these with you.

There are two versions, 01 Dry Wine and 02 Sweet Wine. Both come in a palete with a carton around it with a pretty wine bottle design. As expected from Labiotte. On the back are basic informations and the eyeshadow names. An eyeshadow brush is also included, which I don't use because I personally prefer my own brushes. Though it doesn't feel like it's bad quality at all so if you're in a rush or only have this option you can definitely use it! Something positive about the palettes is, that they come with a big mirror (as big as the palette) which makes it super travel friendly. The palette closes shut easily and nothing feels flimsy or breaks, the eyeshadow pans are also glued so nothing falls out if you shake it or anything happens.

01 Dry Wine
Dry Wine consists of a lot of brown, bronze and golden shadows while Sweet Wine is a little bit more adventurous with a really pretty dark red and also brown/bronze colors.
Both palettes offer a nice variety of matte, shimmer and sparkly eyeshadows. You'll definitely be able to create lots of pretty looks with them!
02 Sweet Wine
Let's talk about the pigmentation. It definitely depends on the shade. The lighter and more matte colors don't have great pigmentation, whereas the darker and more shimmery colors have more color pay off. Korean eyeshadows usually tend to not have strong pigmentation but I think the Labiotte palettes are an exception! I was actually pretty surprised by their quality. You can also build up the colors to some extent which is a plus. Though I feel like they don't last the whole day until the evening without an eye primer. 
The very glittery eyeshadows create quite a lot of fallout so you should be careful if you don't want your cheeks to be a glittery mess! 
Here you can see both palettes in action: 

First up, Dry Wine. With the very neutral and basic shades, you can create looks for daily wear, either for work or going shopping! If you want to use this palette and create a nighttime look, just add the darkest shade, Dark Brown, and you're good to go!
Next: Sweet Wine. This is a palette suitable for more romantic looks. You can also transition into a nighttime look if you're using the dark red shade, Matte Burgundy, which I did for example. It does leave a lot of room to create many different looks with just a few shades.
The palettes retail for around 20 - 27 $ depending on where you buy it.
I can defintily recommend both palettes, especially if you want to have a travel friendly one, that's not too bulky and can still get a big variety of shades out of it. It's also quite beginner friendly as the shades are buildable and the pigmentation isn't too strong to overwhelm someone at first! My personal favorite is the Sweet Wine version as I just love reds and pinks on my eyes but I definitely like using the Dry Wine palette as well. The only thing that annoys me is the fallout of the very glittery shadows but that's actually very common and happens all the time. For the price and amount you get it's a save buy and you won't be disappointed!

Unboxing // Bomibox April & May
I've decided to combine the unboxings of both months as they arrived at my home just around 1 1/2 weeks apart! 

As far as I know Bomibox changed their shipping service and now they can provide tracking even for their international customers. It also seemed to be a lot faster than before! This really makes me happy because I've had a few problems with customs already and shipping always took so long. I'll keep you updated with this!

The April box was filled with adorable things!

Also the color coordination of the box and the items is so nice and pastelly. Fits perfectly for spring time! (I don't know if that was the intention of the Bomibox stuff xD)

Let's dive into it immediately!
It's Skin Collagen Emulsion (Full Size)

I've seen this and stuff rom the same line quite often but was never seriously intrigued as I'm not really amazed by skincare of this brand. But maybe this emulsion can change my mind!
Mizon Water Volume EX First Essence (Full Size)

Mizon! A brand that's been part of Bomibox a few times already. I genereally like their famous cheap snail gel so I' quite excited to try this essence.

B.Lab I Am Sorry Just Cleansing Water (Full Size)

I've never tried this brand but always found it intriguing only because of their adorable "I'm Sorry Just..." packaging. I've never tried cleansing water but I'm sure I'll include it into my routine. Maybe to wipe my face down in the morning. The size would also be quite good for travelling! 
Holika Holika Aloe 92% Shower Gel (Full Size)

Look, how adorable this is! The tube, more like aloe leaf is huge so it'll probably last for quite a while. Also, you can never have enough body wash. I imagine this being really nice after a hot summer day as aloe has nice soothing properties.
Innisfree X Emoji No-Sebum Mineral Powder Anniversary Limited Edition (Full Size)

To be completely honest, I don't like the design. It's a cute idea but the emojis aren't really cute in my eyes. And this exact same product was already featured in one of the past Bomiboxes so I that was quite unnecessary. Maybe others will have a complete different pont of few and love this packaging but personally it's just meh.

The Face Shop Lovelymee Handcream (Full Size)

This is hella adorable! It might not be super practical as it's too bulky to take qith you for on the go but it is definitely sitting on my desk and looking cute. I'll keep the container once I've finished the cream and put some little things in there!
Mediheal Collagen Essential Impact Mask

I already own this one but have yet to try it, so if I happen to like it I already have a backup so yay! In general Mediheal masks are always going well for me so I'm quite exited to use this. :)

A'Pieu Milk One Pack Strawberry

Another product I'm not too excited about. When this came out I was so in love with the packaging and bought a set of 3 of this exact same type. I used it once and ended up not liking it. The artficial strawberry smell is horrible and it didn't really do anything for my skin. I'll probably give these away. On another note, I've tried the milk version of this line and liked it better! 

Symphony Beauty Makeup Cleansing Wipes (Bonus)

This is not an Asian brand, I think an American one. I've never heard of it but after checking a few instagram posts it seems to be quite good! Also, you can never go wrong with cleansing wipes. They always come in handy, especially if you're out or on a holiday!

Alive Lab Multi Ice Cream (Bonus)

This is just a little sample packet so I don't really know what this cream is supposed to do. I'll definitely try it as it sounds cute and make a first impression!

Without furder ado let's had to the next box! The May version!
(Let's just ignore that I accidentaly included the cute handcream from Aprils box in the May box pictures. XD I just saw it and am too lazy to retake the pictures.)
The Face Shop Rice Water Cleansing Milk (Full Size)

I have heard of this line from The Face Shop. The cleansing oil seems to be more or less popular. I've never really used a cleansing milk so I don't know what to expect. Does this substitute the oil or foam cleanser? 

Benton BHA Skin Toner (Full Size)

Ohhh I love Benton! So far I've only had good experiences with this brand and I hope i'll continue with this toner. I've actually been eyeing this one for a while already.
(And again, ignore the hand cream! XD)

Son & Park Beauty Water (60ml)

I already have this but I'm happy it's back. I'll plan to use it to wipe down my face in the morning or on the go if I'm not wearing any makeup! It's very popular so I have high expectations.

Labiotte Young Leaf Cranberry Butter Hand Cream (Full Size)

This hand cream has a cool shape and it also smells really good! The consistency is a little bit thicker but it sinks in quite quickly if you're not applying a too thick layer. It doesn't feel sticky at all which is a huge plus!
Skinfood Nail Vita Essence (Full Size)

This sounds like something I definitely need for my nails. Due to work my nails are prone to breaking and cracking so using this essence regularly hopefully helps with this problem.

Tony Moly Delight Tint #01 (Full Size)

I love tints because they're giving just a slight tint of color and you can never go wrong with that. This definitely is a nice add to my collection though I have yet to try it thoroughly. The color is a bright red, slightly pink!

SUM:37 Waterful Skin Refresher (6ml) & Waterful Rebalancing Gel Lotion (5ml) BONUS

These actually sound quite nice. To be honest I'm scared of trying these! What if I end up loving it and then my wallet starts crying because the full size is too expensive! D8
Leaders Insolution Mediu Amino Moisture Mask

Leaders masks are defintiely ones that I quite like. They always contain a lot of essence so my whole body can bath in it. This exact mask wasn't in my collection as of yet so I'm happy to try it sooner or later!

Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Acai Berry Mask (Bonus)

I generally like innisfree masks as their cheap and moisturize the skin. I can't recall wether or not I have used this flavor and liked it but I can try it now anyway!

Scinic My Juicy Bottle Mask

I've never tried anything from Scinic so this mask will be a first for me. I don't have any expectations because I've never really read a review of this one.

And that's about it! I'm definitely most excited about the Benton toner, Mizon essence, hand creams and the Holika Holika shower gel. The Innisfree powder and A'pieu sheetmask are just meh.
Which of these boxes did you prefer? And have any of you already tried one or few of these products?
