Haul | Dear Dahlia Blooming Edition Secret Garden Collection Set

Dear Dahlia Secret Garden Collection Set - Spring Bouquet

Dear Dahlia is a Korean luxury vegan brand that I have been interested in for some time. The brand isn't exactly affordable (it's a department store brand) and the colors they offer are mostly warm, so I hesitated despite being tempted every time I see their gorgeous ads on Instagram. I was particularly interested in the purple-themed eyeshadow/blush palette from the "Blooming Edition Secret Garden Collection" but wasn't sure enough to buy it sight unseen. I finally decided to try the brand when I saw the whole set is nearly half off from the website last week. My order was shipped via DHL express and arrived in 3 days in impeccable condition.

I haven't tried a full face with the collection yet, but from what I've swatched, everything seems solid. The eyeshadow/blush palette has the typical Korean makeup aesthetics - muted pastels with blurred finishes and multi-shimmer toppers - yet it seems to be much better quality compared to most Korean roadshop brands that I have tried. For one thing, no powder kickups. The packagings are quite elegant and beautiful, too.

First up, the freebies 

On top of the makeups, I also received a peach pink mesh cosmetic case, 2 vegan makeup brushes, a hand mirror, a set of makeup sponges, and mini Velvet Lip Mousse duo. All seem well-made and good quality.

Blooming Edition Secret Garden Palette - Spring Bouquet

There are 8 eyeshadows and 1 blush included in this palette. There are two more varieties in the collection and Spring Bouquet is the cool-toned option.

Blooming Edition Skin Paradise Soft Focus Shine Control Powder

This is a finely milled pressed powder with little to no powder kickup. The color appears very bright but it's virtually colorless.

Paradise Dual Palette Blush Duo - Fair Lady

This is a darling little thing. The compact is tiny but feels sturdy. One side has cream blush and the other pressed powder blush. The color Fair Lady is an innocent peachy-pink duo that's impossible to overdo.

I am most excited about the palette since this is unique in my collection. I don't think the lip stuff or the blush is a must-have although they seem to be great quality. I will share more thoughts after putting them to use.

I ordered mine directly from Dear Dahlia website. They ship from Korean and offer free shipping on international orders over $50. There is an additional 10% off when you sign up for membership.

    1. I was enabled by the deal for sure. The lip gloss is more of a treatment and feels very nice on the lips!

  2. Such a beautiful design!! And the products look great, i like the peachy tone :)
    have a great weekend,


    1. I like the soft pink marble designs as well. The palette and the powder cases are made of thick high-quality cardboard, which I think is very thoughtful. Enjoy your weekend!
