I recently received a surprise in the mail from Jeanie of Makeup Merriment. To my delight, the package contained Hard Candy Blush Crush Baked Blush in 125 Candy Doll and Rock & Republic Eye Colour in Saturate, encased in a pretty Hard Candy zippered pouch.
I’ve known Jeanie since our days at Emakemeup and we’ve become good friends even though we’re continents apart. She’s a real makeup connoisseur and has a terrific stash, so do check out her lovely blog.
Living Doll is a beautiful cool-toned pink marbleised with subtle gold veining. At first I thought it looked like MAC Mineralize Blush in Pleasantry but it has bluer undertones than the latter. It is exactly the type of blush I would’ve picked for myself!
Saturate is a satiny Prussian blue that will be beautiful with many of my favourite shades (I’m already picturing it with my smokes). The classy R&R packaging reminds me of the hard cases expensive jewellery/watches sometimes come in. Both the box and the shadow case are quite heavy too, enhancing the touch of luxe.
I was quite taken with the little charm that is attached to the pretty pouch and appreciate how well-made the entire case is.
♥ THANK YOU so much, Jeanie, for your very thoughtful present and your gift of friendship! ♥
