Mother’s Day Presents

May 9, 2010

I spent this weekend preparing gifts for my mummy and my mother-in-law. :)

For my mother, I put together some beauty items in the CanCam x Marc by Marc Jacobs mini tote.

In it are:

She likes pressed powders and products with added sunscreen, so I thought this would be great for her.

  • Bourjois Yes to Volume No To Clumps Mascara

I was tempted to get her Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara but I decided she would prefer something that is easier to remove. I haven’t tried this myself but my friends have and like it.

I used this on her when I did her makeup for an event last week. She asked me more than once where it was from, so I think she must’ve liked it! ;)

  • Stage Wonderkiss LipCrème in Thrill

This rose red from the Stage Burlesque Ball collection will be stunning on my mum’s skintone and fair visage.

My mum had asked about a good cleansing oil to remove her mascara. I’ve had great success with this and thought the whimsical design would look sweet in her bathroom.

For my mother-in-law, I packed a few beauty goodies in the exquisite Cath Kidston beauty bag that came with the brand’s e-mook earlier this year.

In it are:

This red isn’t subtle like the Perfect Rouges from the Shiseido Spring 2010 range but I know its gorgeous striking shade will brighten her complexion in an instant. The name is a nice allusion to her Chinese zodiac sign too! ;)

She has a few age spots and hopefully will benefit from this easy-to-use Vitamin C stick.

She likes the scent of sweet roses, so this fabulous facial mist will be perfect for her. Its price (S$60) is unusually high for such a product but its refreshing nature and the purity of the scent are worth that amount. A voucher from the recent Tangs recycling program, together with my Tangs Citibank credit card rebate, helped to offset the cost too. ;)

  • A Cath Kidston tissue pouch and mirror

These two items come with the e-mook and have the same pretty print as the zippered pouch.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mummies and mummies-to-be! ♥
