Mini Benefit haul

Today the postman dropped of a package I’ve been eagerly waiting for-me and suyi’s Benefit Cosmetics parcel that we ordered directly from the website.it arrived in just over 2weeks,pretty good time I would say for free shipping 🙂

I have been living without my favorite blusher for too long just because I was being skint refusing to buy it from the counters here(wait till you hear the price difference-it’s astonishing to say the least) and wasn’t willing to fork out shipping for just one item. So I was pretty excited when I finally found someone to haul with 😉

Here’s the pic of all the items we ordered.might do an individual review if I’m up to it

L’occitane Christmas haul

im really loving the chrismas gift sets from L’occitane this year.the packaging theme is fuchsia and green, very bright and contrasting.even the giftset leaflet is so pretty.i got my items from Sunway Pyramid. the SA who served me was really nice and friendly, she even threw in extra paper bags and gift bags of various sizes for me to repack as gifts for my friends.

the big paperbag of my stuffs

the winter rose (rose des neiges)  set

wrapped in fuschia papers

clockwise fr L-R : shimmering shower gel, sugar scrub(the wooden spoon is so cute!) and body creme. all from the xmas limited edition winter rose collection

my favorite handcream is from l’occitane tho i have not started using the winter rose(pink) or the fleur cherie(orange) ones..i assume it will be as good as the others that i’ve used.

bought the shaving foam and shower gel fr the Men’s range for MrF and it really smells so yummy.cant wait to smell him with it.haha, couldn’t get him the fragrance because there’s this superstition btw us (long story) that forbids me to buy him perfumes. forgot to take a pic of it before giving him.

went to a few malls around here recently and this year the xmas decorations are really fancy. i took some pics of the l’occitane displays.

oops just realized it’s not the l’occitane display,it’s Borders the bookstore.but u get the gist, it’s pretty similiar.

this is the l’occitane set up at The Gardens, i love that it’s so floral and xmas-y at the same time

next,

Pavillion KL, main concourse. compared to Kiehl’s counter, L’occitane put in much more effort! see im bias because the predominant color was fuchsia 😉

a closer look..

there’s also gift with purchase(GWP) in store now, for non xmas set items above rm500 you get a calendar and a set of miniature shampoo/body lotion/handcream 10 ml + a tote bag. if you buy the xmas sets then the bar goes up to rm600 for the GWP.

im happy with my haul 😀 (tho my pocket is not)

 

 

Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland photos

one of the biggest highlight of my trip to spain was the visit to Sephora store.i begged mom for a few precious minutes to spend at the store, because we were having our free day shopping at La Rambla at Barcelona, and mom was in a frenzy trying to cover as many shops as possible..and makeup wasn’t in her list of priority. SO anyway i went into the Sephora store and it was HUGE.entered the store on the 2nd floor, and when i went down the escalator my heart stopped beating for a split second. i was in the mecca of cosmetics. giddy with excitement the first counters i went to were Urban decay and Too Faced , because we don’t have them in Malaysia. was deciding between the Urban Decay book of shadows vol III or the Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland palette, i guess u know by now which one came home with me 😉

i have not started using it yet, as the whole palette is too pretty ❤

love the illustration of the fairy

once opened, there’s a pop up at the centre with even more fairies,a pocket with 3 cards for tutorial, and on the right side the blusher and face powder

a closer look at the left side

the right side with the blusher and face color

this is the pull out drawer compartment consisting of the eyeshadows, full sized lipgloss and shadow insurance ( their shadow primer)

these tutorial cards are also included in the set, arent they so cute?

im really excited to start using this set but im still holding on because it’s just too cute and pretty! so it’s just photos this time.. no reviews yet. im still very much in love with the Naked palette from Urban Decay so im using that more now.

maybe i’ll do another post after I’ve started using this 🙂

Loving it NAKED

the next best thing to having a best friend come home from a trip to Europe when you don’t get to tag along is…when she comes home with goodies for you! and i received a lip primer too 😉

THANK YOU SO MUCH FANYIN!

i love my NAKED palette so much *excited*

 

very luxe packaging..velvety and sleek

 

i’ve tried it out, naturally (immediately after i reached home) and i love it.. the colors are all neutrals..very easy to use and match. with different finishing.. but the texture remains smooth just like all the other Urban Decay eyeshadows.

 

loving this so much

 

i’m feeling so lucky Fan managed to get one for me from UK as it is sold out in some of the other countries. and of course.. i’m still wishing that Sephora would open its doors in KL, and bring along all these other makeup brands that we don’t have right now. Pssst like, NARS, hello? do you hear me Sephora?

used it quite a few times.. i love that they gave a mini eyeshadow Primer potion so that i could try it out and decide if i want the full size one. (yes i do) the only issue i have with some of the more glittery shades is the fallout. need more practice with the application. otherwise i’m totally in love with it 🙂

have not posted about my MAC Venomous Villains haul..from a while ago. will do that soon
