Mail of the Week (August 1st - 5)

100% Pure products to review: Ever since I tried their body creams, I got hooked! I was very curious about their makeup products containing fruit pigment instead of harsh chemical pigments. Here's what I got sent to try:

  • Fruit Pigmented Blush in Peppermint Candy
  • Fruit Pigmented Pot Rouge Blush in Rosy
  • Cocoa Pigmented Bronzer in Golden Brown
  • Body Cream samples

L - R:  Golden Brown, Peppermint Candy, Rosy

KIM Brushes to review: I have never heard of KIM Brushes before but when I was given the opportunity to try some of their brushes, I jumped at the chance. Here are the brushes I was sent:

  • Round F251
  • Small Angle E131
  • Narrow Lip L311

Sensodyne Ultra Fresh Toothpaste sample and $1 off coupon: I have no idea where I got this sample, but it's great to keep in my handbag (:

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Official Soundtrack: When you registered The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D on Club Nintendo, they were giving away the official soundtrack CD for free! That's an amazing collectible that I will be sure to keep and treasure (:

Helena Rubinstein High Quality Retractable Powder Brush from BornPrettyStore.com: Who could resist a gold leopard print makeup brush? This is exactly what I needed to keep in my handbag for touch ups on the go.

  7. How pretty! I really want to try 100% pure products :)

  8. HI Gaby! Ooo I love the gold leopard print design on your powder brush from Helena Rubinstein. It's very chic :)
    Omigosh, I know I told you this before but I use to love playing Zelda on my nintendo years ago. The music whenever it approaches a bad guy always scared me so much LOL I remember turning the volume down to mute for that. I'm sure the soundtrack has the fun happy music though! It would be interesting to hear some of the songs on it.
    Oh and I always use Sensodyne because I unfortunately have sensitive teeth. It works great!
    And I LOVE the 100% pure skincare line. Dale bought me a few of their lotions and scrubs when we were on vacation in the States. I'm not sure where you can buy it in store in Canada? I didn't know they have a makeup line! Looking forward to your reviews on it.

  9. A great haul! Showing some Friday love. Have a great weekend XOXO!

  10. That little pot looks just so pretty. And I don;t like pink normally.
    And the brushes look MACish....so it's good to know that other brands produce alternatives too.
    Have a fab weekend.
