I got to work yesterday all frazzled after battling with rush hour traffic to find a wonderful surprise, not one, but four parcels on my desk! It really added a lift to my day and put a smile on my face! I couldn't wait to blog about it but just didn't have the time as I went to the Incubus concert last night at Festival Hall, here in Melbourne (which was fantastic, but has convinced me I'm getting a bit too old for general admission, I think).
Anyhoo, here's what I received; a Mirenesse lipstick I won in a 'free kiss' competition, a Mirenesse Valentine's Day set I purchased last week (containing a contour palette, lip gloss and lipstick), a nail polish from Cherry Culture to replace a faulty product (you can read more about it here), and a special edition Bellabox from a competition Bellabox and Primped were running a few months ago! I actually almost didn't even enter, and I didn't have much faith in winning, but it was a great surprise! Guess it's true what they say about having to be in it to win it! Let's have a look at some photos, shall we?!
|My parcel stash!|
|Mirenesse goodies and Nyx Girls polish in Gilded Glitter.|
|L-R: Gilded Glitter polish, contour palette (2 blushers, highlighter and|
bronzer) and Viva Eternal Gloss in Sexy Starlet.
|French Kiss Lip Cocktail lipstick in Mai Tai (R) and Red Lotus (L).|
|The special Bellabox prize with goodies taken from the best of the Nov and Dec boxes.|
|L-R: Batiste Blush dry shampoo, OCC Lip tar in 'grandma', twistbands, Lancome Visionnaire serum, Ozotic Elytra nail polish #530, Elemis papaya peel, Orofluido hair elixir, Gatineau day/night serum, and Madly Kenzo perfume.|
|Madly Kenzo perfume, what a gorgeous bottle!|
So there you have it, my surprise Tuesday haul! I was especially thrilled with the Bellabox because I missed out on getting the Kenzo perfume the last time. I was actually considering buying it so this will give me a chance to wear it a while and decide if I want to purchase it. I'm also happy to get the dry shampoo, it's such a handy thing to have (although it's not my favourite scent but I'll still use it), the Orofluido is the perfect size to pop in my travel bag and the twist bands will always be handy (I actually bought some from Bellabox not too long ago). As for the serums/peel, I handed previous samples to my mum, but I've been thinking of giving it a try so these arrived at a good time!
Oh, and a quick note, the Mirenesse lipsticks are really good, they look lovely on and they're quite moisturising. I'm planning on doing my make up tomorrow with the contour palette and one of the lippies, so I'll try and post a photo if I do. :)
So, my verdict? Completely thrilled with this box, which is supposed to have the best items from the November and December boxes ( articularly as I received several items that I missed out on from my subscriptions), so thank you, Primped and Bellabox! :)
Don't you love receiving surprise goodies in the mail?
