What’s in my Easter Bunny Goodie Box #2

A while ago, I told you about participating in a Easter Bunny beauty swop with Tara here.

Tara has sent so many goodies to me, I am flabbergasted with surprise after surprise! The first part of the goodie box is posted here.

This is the second and last part of the Easter swop, with pictures to follow.

Items featured:

Left to right: Mascara, eyeliner, baked eyeshadow, lipsticks, lipglosses, FOUR eyeshadow palettes!!

Powder blusher by Jordana

I have mentioned to Tara that I am an eyeshadow kind of girl, and she has very kindly sent FOUR eyeshadow palettes and one single eyeshadow to me. 😮

I have always heard of elf and Wet ‘n’ Wild coloricon palettes but couldn’t get them locally. So seeing them in the box definitely made me squeal with delight! And Tara has also asked if I have ever tried anything from Jordana before, which I haven’t. The blusher looks lovely lovely lovely!!

I can’t wait to try them all, but I have only 1 face… hmm… what to do? :p

Until next time, hope you survive the summer heat (if you are in the SEA…) 🙂

What’s in my Easter Bunny Goodie Box #1

A while ago, I told you about participating in a Easter Bunny beauty swop with Tara here.

Tara has been so generous in sending so many things that I want to unwrap everything quickly but at the same time, refraining from doing so because I want to do proper posts on them.

This is the first part of the swop, with pictures to follow.

Items featured:

1. Deadly cute coral pink, yellow and baby blue nail varnish from Sinful Colors Professional

These colours are just so cute!! First idea that came to my mind is the easter egg design. How apt. 🙂

Sinful Colors (note to self: must spell the US way…) are not available in Thailand currently.

I didn’t have time to wear these yet. But when I do I will write about it.

Soul Mate (Coral Pink), Unicorn (Yellow) and Sugar Rush (Baby Blue)

Soul Mate 945 (Coral Pink), Unicorn 953 (Yellow) and Sugar Rush 1169 (Baby Blue)

 

2. Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Honey

I’m already a big fan of Revlon’s Balm Stain. And this colour Honey is so versatile for everyday use! Love the peppermint taste. When I travel in the car for a long distance I like to use this Balm Stain because the peppermint smell helps with motion sickness for me.

Beautifully gift wrapped!

2. Brush Guards (Surprise! Surprise!) Thanks so much again, Tara!

First time I posted about Brush Guards no available in Thailand here, Tara must have noticed the small complaint… and she has so kindly included a pack of them in the beauty swop box!! Prior to unwrapping it, I was trying to guess what it might be and I thought for a moment it must be some sort of eye shield or mask. When I saw what is inside I swore I could have run around the house jumping up and down like a little girl who got her first bicycle, announcing and showing to everyone “Brush Guards!! Brush Guards!!!!”. 🙂

Well, that happened in my imagination. I couldn’t do any of that because my house was awfully quiet as the children had gone to bed. But I was still as excited, mind you. 🙂 And my actual reaction at that time was: “OH MY GOD!!! Brush Guardssss!!!!”. Quickly, I went to fetch my brush pouch and slid the guards to my preciousssss…

This package had me wondering and guessing what was inside…

Brush Guards: 1 Extra Small, 2 Small, 2 Medium and 1 Large

Brush Guards fitted perfectly with the RealTechniques & MAC Brushes

Tara really has great idea of gift wrapping. I appreciate it very much. Unwrapping every item is a surprise and joy. 🙂 I kept the grey bow for my car key, as I was looking for something to tie it so I don’t get confused with my husband’s car key, or the spare one. Here’s what I did:

That’s all for now. Until next time I shall report on more goodies from Tara’s box. 🙂

Easter Bunny Beauty Swop (Thanks to Angel Diamante for organising! x)

Hello! It’s been a long while since my last post. And last month I came across Angel Diamante’s blog. She’s a chic blogger from the Philippines, her blog is cute and fun! Check out Angel’s blog at http://angeldiamante.blogspot.com.

OK. I stumbled upon her blog and discovered that she is organising an international swop for bloogers. So of course I have to join the fun! 😀 The original post calling for participation is here:

And a few days ago, Angel paired me up with Tara B from http://beautybytarab.blogspot.com, my swop buddy. 🙂 Tara’s blog is full of useful information, especially on product reviews and EOTD looks.

I must say I am pretty excited about this, and feeling rather embarrassed myself for not posting frequently enough… oh well, I’m a mother so that’s my excuse. haha

When the swop has taken place sometime towards the middle of this month, I will write up about it again. 😀

Till then, let’s get shopping for Tara! 😀
