Recent giveaways I have won

I have been lucky enough to win two giveaways in the past weeks!

My prize from Helena's giveaway

  • Essence Duo Eyeshadow in Dream Team
  • Essence Eclipse Glitter Eye Pencil in Hide Bella Hide
  • Estee Lauder Artist's Eye Pencil in Softsmudge Black
  • Essence Multi Action False Lashes Mascara

Essence Duo Eyeshadow in Dream Team

Essence Eclipse Glitter Eye Pencil in Hide Bella Hide and Estee Lauder Artist's Eye Pencil in Softsmudge Black: I'm especially loving the glitter eye pencil as I have nothing like this in my stash, and it glides beautifully on the lid and the glitters are not too chunky.

Essence Multi Action False Lashes Mascara: False lashes effect mascara? Yeah! I'm curious about this brand, too, as it's not available here in Quebec.

Thank you Helena!

My prize from Kim's giveaway

  • Harajuku♥Lovers Fragrance Baby
  • Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara in Black Extase
  • Cake Nourishing Hand Lotion Baked Citrus
  • Borghese Nail Lacquer in B320 Palazzo Lilac F
  • Borghese Nail Lacquer inB165 Bambina Pink S
  • Borghese Nail Lacquer in B625 Bellini Peach F
  • Borghese Nail Lacquer in  B275 Verona Pink C
  • Borghese Nail Lacquer in B250 Venetian Red F
  • MAC Lustre Lipstick in Lazy Day

I was thrilled at the sight of a such big package!

 I'm not a fan of the fragrance itself, but the box is beautiful! I'm actually using it to display my perfumes on my vanity hehe =D

The whole package was smelling sooooo good, and I was like "Wait, this can't be fragranced with Daisy because I don't like the scent..." LOL. Then I figured out the Cake Hand Lotion spilled a little on the wrapping paper xD

 Harajuku♥Lovers Fragrance Baby: I searched the web for a proper description of this fragrance as it's not written on the box, and here is what I found on Amazon:
A powdery musk, fresh, clean and soft.
Top notes: White Rose, Bergamot, Freesia.
Mid Notes: Orange Flower, Tiare Flower, Jasmine Petals.
Base Notes: White Musk, Soft Woods, Vanilla, Violet.

To me, this perfume smells baby powder, but not plain old baby powder. It's a little fruity too... I'm really bad at describing fragrances LOL. And look at that packaging! It's to die for!

Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara in Black Extase: Wow, I would have never bought a mascara this expensive myself so I'm really glad to have the chance to try it for free!

 Cake Nourishing Hand Lotion Baked Citrus: OMG This smells heavenly! I will definitely be using it as a body lotion because I want my whole body to smell cupcake hehe =D

 Borghese Nail Lacquer in Venetian Red, Verona Pink, Bambina Pink, Bellini Peach and Palazzo Lilac:  I really like Venetian Red and Verona Pink, but I'm not sure about the others, they all look so sheer...

 2 coats, with flash (same order as stated above, from thumb to pinky)

 MAC Lustre Lipstick in Lazy Day: Wow, this is my first MAC product! I was very excited about it, and I'm not disappointed. This is the perfect pale pink, and I've been wearing it everyday since I received it =D
