Mail of the Week (October 24 - 28)

My prize from Joyce's Pick + Choose giveaway: Wow, I must be the luckiest bitch alive, seriously! Look at all that gorgeous stuff Joyce sent me! Joyce was giving away makeup products she got from a friend but that she won't use, and the winner got to pick ten items from the list. Here are my picks:

  • Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blushing Quad in Hot Flash
  • Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink 
  • Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush in Rose
  • Physicians Formula Happy Booster Bronzer in Bronzer
  • Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Bronzer in Bronzer
  • Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Pressed Bronzer in Medium to Dark
  • Physicians Formula Bamboo Wear Mirror/Brush Compact + Bronzer Refill in Medium Bronzer
  • Revlon CustomEyes Shadow & Liner in Naturally Glamorous
  • Rimmel London Glam Eyes Eyeshadow Single in Spicy Bronze*
  • Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quad in Natural Smokes*

Thank you so much for this fantastic prize Joyce, I still can't believe my luck!

*I know that Rimmel and Maybelline test on animals but I was planning to give these items to my mother as she loves brown eyeshadows, just like me. 

Dr Hess products: Dr Hess Udder Ointment is said to be by far the best healing skin care ointment on the market today so I was very glad to be kindly sent these products to help with my eczema. Dr Hess products are recommended if you are dealing with problem skin, eczema, chafing, severe dryness, diabetic skin damage, cracked heels etc.

  • Udder Ointment
  • Udder Stick Mint Lip Balm with SPF 15
  • Udder Stick Original Lip Balm with SPF 15
  • Udder Stick Pomegranate Lip Balm with SPF 15
  • Udder Stick Mango Lip Balm with SPF 15

Bronze Ambition Self Tan products: I kept hearing great things about these fake tan products on UK beauty blogs but I never saw them around here and I was really surprised to be given the opportunity to test drive some of them! I wouldn't say I'm complexed of my pale skin tone but I don't really like it and I like to use a little fake tan to give me a healthy glow, especially in the winter wher I can easily look dead. Here's what I was sent:

  • Sun-Kissed Mist Instant Spray Tan
  • Bronze Me Mousse Instant + Self Tan Foam
  • Glow 'N 'Go Instant Tan Shimmer
  • Fake Don't Bake Natural Look Tanning Cream

HANA Titanium 1.5" Flat Iron from Misikko.com: I have worked with Misikko in the past and I'm delighted to have the chance to team up with them again for another product review! Misikko seriously has the best customer service and they always spoil you when they send you a package. Alon with the flat iron, Brian very kindly included other products in my package such as heat proof pad and pouch, flowers shaped soaps, LA Color Eyeshadow, ELF Hypershine Lipgloss, hairbrush, etc.

Wet Platinum Silicone Based Premium Personal Lubricant sample and $1.00 off coupon: Get yours for free here (USA and Canadian residents only).
