Beauty Bounty from the UK and US!

When Iris was away in the UK and the US recently, she helped me to purchase a number of makeup lovelies. Several of these beauties are actually gifts from her and I was very touched when she surprised me with them – not only was she extremely generous, she’d also picked some very apt items for me!

She bought:

  • Accessorize Icon Eye Shadow in Purple Promise – a pretty smokey purple
  • Accessorize Merged Eye Shadow in Pink Planet – a beautiful baked shadow with pink and lavender swirls
  • Accessorize Nail Polish in Mermaid – a stunning sparkly golden turquoise
  • Barry M Nail Paint in Dusky Mauve – a smokey greyed purple that is apparently a dupe of Chanel Paradoxal
  • Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Across the Universe – an amazing inky-blue infused with hexagonal reflective teal glitter
  • Illasmasqua Powder Blusher in Thrust – a cool-toned plum-pink matte blush
  • Physicians Formula Glow & Mood Boosting Blush – a gorgeous blush with raised hearts in varying shades of pink
  • Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Blue Eye Candy – a palette of interesting blues
  • Sleek The Primer Palette – a colourful eyeshadow base palette to pop rainbow hues
  • Stila Make Me Blush Palette – another blush palette of hearts but with a golden touch
  • Tokidoki Gelato Lip Balm Stain in Skeletrina – a cute grape-coloured lipstain

Everything is exquisite and this beauty bounty is truly a treat. Thank you, dear Iris! ♥

      Hi Cheryn,

      It’s sold out on the Deborah Lippmann webby too! :) I’m very blessed to have a friend like Iris. :)

  • Iris says:

    You’re more than welcome *hugs* Skeletrina looks grape in the tube but it actually applies almost fuschia pink! And it really lasts the whole day as a stain. Do try out the beauty loot soon!

      Thank you, thank you, Iris!

      I tried the Illamasqua today (forgot to tell you) – SO pigmented! Had to tone it down with the Shiseido white highlighter from Spring 2010. It works well like that.

      Now I’m very curious about Skeletrina; will use it as soon as I can. ;)

  • I know you love the hearts like I do. What a beautiful collection of items. I’ll be looking forward to your reviews – especially of the Sleek Primer palette.

      Hi Marcia,

      Now I only need one of the MAC heart blushes from Quite Cute to round off the heart blush collection! ;) I love everything she gave me – they’re gorgeous, plus many of them are HTF items.

  • WOWEEEE!! Lots of lovely stuff to play with :)

    I get a kick out of seeing everything still in their original packaging! :-) Nice work with the photography! Cheers!
