It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas~
I've recently received some AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME gifts from two of my online friends that totally brought me to tears.
First up, we have Tala. We first started communicating over my blog sales. She realized that I have all the Rock & Republic blushes except for Call Me (Bless her heart), and decided to send me a brand new in box one as a gift!!! I've said it before and I'll say it again:"Tala, I owe you for life!!".
Let's take a look at this beauty shall we?
It's so much better than Nars Orgasm. It's more pigmented, more easily blendable, and just looks cooler!!
Next up, we have Sue Lynn. Sue Lynn and I became great friends via blogger and YT. She doesn't usually comment, but if anything happened, she's always the first one to email me, asking if I were ok. Sue Lynn was always there for me. I'm guaranteed a reply whenever I email her. She sent me a gift for my B-day, one that I lusted over for quite some time now. I had a lemming for Lunasol products after reading about them on Taiwanese beauty blogs. However, I didn't want to shell out the big bucks for them. It was my dream come true that she offered to send it to me as a B-day present. I was speechless at her generosity. Yes, blogging and YTubing is stressful, but great people like Sue Lynn and Tala make it worth while (No, I'm definitely NOT saying that you need to send me stuff, but I'm just overwhelmed at their generosity).
The goodie: Lunasol eyeshadow palette in 02 Light Variation
As we can see here, the American blush is A LOT more pigmented than the Japanese eyeshadow. I know that most people in Asia like products that focus more on the shimmering aspect of the makeup, like that "my face but better" look. However, I think my taste is a little bit more American now, LOL! The e/s are GORGEOUS, but I had to layer them a lot to achieve the payoff I was hoping for. Hey, at least that satisfied my lemming for trying Japanese makeup.
What I used:
--Estee Lauder Double Wear Max. Cover <--Review coming up later
--Coverblend concealer in Light
--NYC bronzer in Sunny
--Ben Nye contour #1
--R&R blush in Call me
--MAC MSF in Soft & Gental
--Lunasol e/s palette in Light Variation
--MAC Fluidline in Waveline
--MAC Criss/cross lashes
--Lancome Decinicils <--kinda sucks w/o a primer
--Nothing in pics, but later it was MAC Creme in my coffee.
This is the new way for me to do my hair....I look...Mongolian?
Guys, ONLY DO THIS WHEN YOU ARE 100% POSITIVELY SURE THAT NO ONE, ABSOLUTELY NO ONE, IS COMING THAT DAY. I apologize for scaring that rather hot UPS guy...It wasn't my intent.
I don't think this works as well as my "twist-your-hair-in-a-bun" method. The waves were definitely more subtle. However, when you braid your hair and sleep on it overnight, the result is A LOT better.
Thank you so much for reading, and let's all take a second to appreciate the nice people in the world.
P.S. This is what the UPS guy brought me!
