Mail of the Week (May 16 - 20)

Product samples from Monave: I've been very kindly given the opportunity to try some products from this brand I had never heard of before. They have a wide selection of mineral makeup and vegan skincare, and of course, this company cruelty-free! As I'm trying to downsize my makeup collection, I opted for skincare products and a makeup brush:

  • Flat Top Brush
  • Honey Clay Cleanser
  • Unscented Emollient
  • Gentle Bamboo Honey Facial Polish

Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating from VeganOutreach.com

I Am Not a Nugget stickers from Peta2: I have joined Peta2's Million Sticker Mania, and you can help animals too by ordering free stickers before they run out!

Surprise package from Biotherm: I still haven't figured out how Biotherm got my mailing address, and how they found my blog? Strange... but I certainly won't complain! here's what I received:

  • White D-Tox Translu-Cell Intense Brightening Serum
  • Aquasource 24h Deep Hydration Replenishing Cream with Thermal Plankton Cellular Water

Coupon from webSaver.ca for a free box of Chocolate Cheerios on June 21

Coupons from P&G: I really want to try their new Natural Instincts hair dye!

My prize from Sarah's mini-giveaway: Sarah held such a cute Easter giveaway! We had to guess how many Cadbury Creme Eggs were in the bowl and I was so close, I guessed 40 but there was 39 eggs! My prize is 6 Creme Eggs, yum! Thank you Sarah =D

U by Kotex samples: I use the DivaCup so I don't need those, but I have ordered them for my mother. You can still order some here (US and Canada)

I won Rabiyah's giveaway: I was lucky enough to win a Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki - F80! I was excited to finally try it as it seems to be getting so much rave on the blogosphere, and I agree, it's great! The bristles are really super soft and dense.
This exclusive flat top synthetic kabuki was designed to deliver a flawless makeup application. The Sigma Makeup F80 is a buffer brush that can be used to blend powder or liquid products. The short and dense bristles make it easy to buff your liquid foundation. The long handle adds comfort to your makeup application. The synthetic fibers are ideal to be used with liquid products and can be easily cleaned. Made of Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.

Thank you Rabiyah!!

    i've been using monave for some time now and i love their mineral makeup :) does not irritate my sensitive skin. the minerals are highly pigmented too so you need only a little amount when applying it.

    much love,

  13. The so much-raved F80! Oh, Monave's mineral concealer-foundations are nice, I remember. :)

  14. Une bonne semaine Gaby!

    Jai bien hate de voir le Honey clay mask, tu nous donneras des nouvelles!

  15. I love your choice of songs Gaby! It's very much club music and I love club music ;)
    ooo the sigma kabuki brush looks soooo soft and the Biotherm products look amazing to try out!
    Kotex seems to be sending out a number of their samples to you Gaby!
    Wow! Chocolate cheerios? It sounds like it might taste similar to Count Chococula which I'm not sure if they even make this cereal anymore...it use to be my younger sister's favourite cereal when we were kids.

  16. The honey clay cleanser looks interesting!

  17. I love how you put a music video on the end of your Mail of the week posts xD

  18. ! I'm really excited to see how the monave samples work out for you!

  19. @Jinz @xXxStundonxXx: I just started using it and I already love it, it's sooooo soft!

    @Chloé: C'est ma préférée du moment, avec Top of the World (The Cataracs ft. DEV)

    @Prettyinthedesert @ charlene-ann: Oh yeah, those cream eggs are soooo yummy! I think I have 3 left... won't last long though LOL

    @makeup,hauls, and anything under the sun!: Oh really? I thought Sigma was shipping worlwide?

    @Vintage Makeup : I'm a "true" vegetarian since around 2-3 months, I'm pretty proud of myself! For around a year, I wasn't eating meat except fish and poultry because I thought it would be too complicated to completely cut out meat of my diet, but it's surprisingly easy! Tofu is wonderful (: What about you?

    @ Donna : Yes... haven't you heard of it before?

    @TEA aka MonsterGirl: Eating animals is horrible, but eating baby animals is the worst in my opinion. Yes that F80 is amazingly soft! And so far the Monave samples are OK but I'm not sure they are my things...

    @ Alex-Fashion-Beauty: Je suis contente que tu aimes la palette, au moins j'ai pu rendre quelqu'un heureuse (=

    @My dear Secret Diary: Mais ça me fait plaisir!

    @Cocovanilla: Je me demande où je vais bien pouvoir les trouver, et pourquoi le coupon est bon seulement pour un jour?!

    @ThePinkMargarita: Mineral makeup is always great and you are right, the eyeshadows are usually pretty pigmented (:

    @ Pammy : I'm not really interested in their makeup but mineral makeup is always nice (=

    @Ms Bubu : Ah je ne savais pas que les stickers c'était seulement US et Canada! C'est don bin plate ça! Tu es membre de la Street Team? =D

    @Karen Law : I love club music! I'd go out every day if I could, but everybody is just so busy )= Yes the F80 is really soft but I haven't tried those Biotherm products as of yet, I have other serums and creams to try out first. I can't wait to taste those chocolate CHeerioes! =D

    @ Cherry : It's a little bit strange at first but I guess you just get used to it!

    @Beauty By Rosh x: I'm glad you like it (:

    @Y: I'm currently trying them out (=
