Mail of the week (December 13 - 17)

  My prize from Tee's giveaway: I was lucky enough to win one of the Wet N Wild Limited Edition Coloricon Eye Kit! I received in the shade Snow Sprite. Swatches and FOTDs coming soon! Thanks Tee! =D

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion + Sunscreen SPF 15: I was sent their new lotion with SPF 15 to review, along with some samples of the original formula. I have already reviewed the original formula almost one year ago, and let me tell you, this stuff is unbeatable! It's seriously the best lotion I have ever tried.

  My prize from Marcelle Express Your True Colours contest: I won one of the 600 Rouge Xpression Lipstick. I received the shade Delirium (pearl). It's a bit too orangey for me, but I bet my mother will like it (=

 Package from Annabelle Cosmetics: They kindly sent me this amazing package because I wrote an article for their blog (it's not up yet, but stay tuned!) Here's what was included:
  • Smoothliner in Bronze
  • Liquid Eyeliner in Black Out
  • Glitterama Liquid Eyeliner in Plutonium
  • Rouge Velours Lipstick in Sienna (pearl)
  • Volume Lip Lip Plumping Gloss in Poetic Mauve
  • Volume Lip Lip Plumping Gloss in Iced Spice
  • Mineral Powder Bronzer in Terra
  • Volumelash.com Mascara in Black
  • Mineral Pigment Dust in Solar
  • Trio Eyeshadow in Creme Caramel
  • Studio Pigment in Magentini
  • Mineral Powder Blush in Sugar Rush
  • Smudge Liner in Electric Sapphire

I've been totally spoiled! Thank you so much Virginie! =D

    @Donna ♥ Baby : yes, I've been spoiled once again! =D

    @ndoodles : Yes it is! At first, I was unsure about it, but I have done some looks with it, and it's great!

  5. wow you won another giveaway! lucky you! :D

  6. Thank you for the Birthday wishes Gaby :)
    Ah, and you shouldn't feel old at all because you are so young and you seem to know how to party it up and have a good time still! Not that you can't party when you're old (because heck I know I will start party when I'm very old LOL).
    Look at all the goodies you got! You're lucky to try out so many Annabelle products. Their glitter lines and pigments look awesome.
    The Marcelle Rouge lipstick is a very sexy red colour! I saw a girl the other day wearing it with a black liquid liner and false lashes and it looked awesome. But yes, I'm sure your Mom would love it too :)
    I remember your Skin MD lotion review. I got sent one bottle like 2 weeks ago and will do a review on it soon. I actually did not like it and it made my eczema on my hand come back a bit....but as soon as I used my Aveeno and Cetaphil eczema creams, it cleared up after 2-3 days. So I'm sure Skin MD won't be sending me another bottle once they see my review :S But have to be honest right? And plus, everyone's skin reacts differently to different lotions too...

  7. What an awesome week of mail for you!!! I have heard of Annabelle Cosmetics I think I'm gonna look at there website =) Lucky Girl! =)

  8. Aww so many goodies!! The colours of the palette look amazing! x

  9. @dreamer: Yes! I'm so happy!!!

    @Karen: I can't believe you didn't like the Skin MD Natural lotion! It's like... an absolute skin savior for me! I haven't tried it on the eczema on my hand but I did on my face and wow, it's amazing! I will try to take before and after pictures for my review this time. I seriously swear by this lotion, but it's sooo pricey, and I have to order it online )=

    You know what? I wrote a negative review about a coffee machine that CSN Stores sent me, and still, I have worked 2 or 3 times with them afterwards LOL. Honesty is what matters!

    @Priscilla aka MUJunkie88 : Yes it was! I'm so excited to try all of those Annabelle goodies =D And yes, you should definitely check out their website, they are amazing!

    je t'embrasse !


  25. @Barttart : Yes, everything is great!

    @Kallyane: Mais ça me fait plaisir! C'est exactement ce que je me suis dit en recevant cette palette!

  26. Oh thank you!! I actually bought a skin md bottle a while back and forgot about it! I always think of it more as a moisturizer but I am totally going to try that out to see it it helps!!

  27. @Serenie S. : Well I guess it is a moisturizer, but it's also more than that, because it's supposed to "shield" the skin and retain moisture like no other. It really works for me!
