“I’m Not Bad… I’m Just Drawn that Way” By Denise

Do you remember who said that line? So this morning, a got woken up by a very loud knock on my door. I was like, OMG the mail man is here! And there he was, with my mail and 3 PACKAGES! I was so excited! Here’s the first one that I received. This is the second item from my Ebay order. This is the wrapping inside. When I saw the oddly placed bubble wrap, I immediately knew what it was! And good for them for paying attention to the details. This is the clutch that I ordered from Mgbank! I had a little trouble finding out how to open my clutch because it’s not like other clutches where I have to push and pull on two separate parts to open the bag. For this one, you have to push the […]

January 2013 Beauty Box Five- By Denise

January 2013 Beauty Box Five- By Denise

My First Beauty Box Five! This is another beauty box subscription but they offer less well known brands and the pricing is definitely better than most boxes. OK, I don’t know that much about the box so let’s dig in! The box is the most adorable thing ever! It’s much smaller than other beauty boxes. Opened up. I love the design and texture of the cards. It’s very cute. Here are the cards. The top one is for the Pencil Me In Company and the bottom is BB5’s product card for the month. Inside, all the products are in this cute drawstring baggie and it sits on a pile of crinkly paper. These are the five products which I have received for the month of January! First thing is this Pencil Me In eye liner in a nude colour. It’s […]

Mini Kiehl’s Haul By Denise

Hello my beloved Kiehl’s! I recently received a $15 gift card from Kiehl’s because I purchased $50 worth of products from them in December as part of the December – January promotion. If they haven’t reminded me through email, I would have completely forgot about it! I bought two products (as per the promotion’s requirement) and was showered by samples! This is the Rice & Wheat Volumizing Shampoo for lifeless limp hair. This is for my mom, it’s her favourite shampoo. I love their lip balms. Even though it’s shiny, it’s not sticky and it smells AMAZING! Now on to the samples! I think it’s part of their policy to shower their customers with samples after every purchase. I always get stuffed with samples even though I say that I have enough of them. There’s always something new and fun […]

My New Makeup Brush Set! By Denise

One of my Ebay orders arrived today! When I picked it out of my mail box, I thought, “Mhh, is it my clutch or my brush set?” This baby arrived in 2 weeks, as said by the store owner, so that’s already 1 point for them!   The inside. The product was wrapped with a lot of this styrofoam wrapping.   What the make up brush bag looks like with the brushes inside.   The gold zipper locket thingy. I have no idea what these are called. What the set looks like inside! The face brushes are on the top and the eyes and lip brushes are on the bottom. In the middle, there is a zippered pouch for things like lip glosses, pencil eye liners or things like cotton pads. Ten brushes in total. All the face brushes came […]

Speedy Solution! By Denise

Hey! Time for some “me time”! I received a small gift (we call it hand mail) from my friend who has recently come back from an exchange from South Korea. South Korea is known for it’s huge emphasis on beauty for both women and men. No doubt, make up and skincare products are in the best quality and for the cheapest price! My friend was nice enough to grab some before he left! These are Missha’s Speedy Solution Firming Eye Patch. (These can be purchased online on Missha’s website or at specialized Asian beauty stores) Each packet comes with two eye patches for the area underneath your eyes Here is a close up. They both came in this plastic tray. I save these trays to make BeautyQQ’s DIY eye masks! And here’s me acting silly with them. So as you can […]

Julep NYE Sale Part Three By Denise

Julep NYE Sale Part Three By Denise

My Third Julep Shipment! This time, a little box came! I wonder what is in it! Packing slip, Intro card, Pedi cream sample, Julep card. Gift tags and my three polishes! Top to bottom: Emmanuelle, Vivien, Petra The Break Down I ordered the Lovely Hostess Set from the NYE sale for $8.00. It said in the description that I would be getting three polishes, three gift tags, three golden paper bags, and three sets of sparkly red tissue paper. Now, I only received the three polishes (most important) and three gift tags. I was preparing to give these as gifts so the whole package idea was very useful. However, I’m missing the essential gift wrapping items! I’m not disappointed but a little lost as to how could they have forgotten the other half of this set! Anyways, the polishes are […]
