Love Package, Barry M Products + EOTD

Last week I received a surprise love package from Nic Nic of bang bang she shoots. Nic Nic was so kind and generous to think of me when she was back home in the UK. She sent me  a very sweet note, two Barry M Dazzle Dusts and a Barry M lipgloss.

Barry M products isn't something that I can get in Hawaii, nor is it available in the U.S., I think.

The colors that she chose were two beautiful colors--a purple and a gold.

The lipgloss is a reddish-coral color.

I did two looks using these colors.

The first look products used:

UDDP in Greed
UD Virgin and Sin for highlights
Barry M Dazzle Dusts
K-Palette 24hr Eyeliner
Gokubuto Mascara

Here I have the Barry M lipgloss on. It's very pretty and isn't sticky at all. I actually forgot that I had lipgloss on and the color lasted quite a decent length of time.

I decided to use Benefit Bella Bamba for my cheeks.

For the second EOTD, I used the same products but added MAC Print to use on the outer "v" of upper eyelid to create a little more dramatic look.

Thank you Nic Nic for the very wonderful surprise. I was truly surprised. I love everything. The Barry M Dazzle Dusts are nicely pigmented and so easy to work with. The colors are gorgeous.

Nic Nic is very sweet and this was very kind of her. I appreciate the small acts of random kindness us bloggers do receive. I really would love to do a swap with my favourite bloggers sometime. x

@Jennifer--Yes, it was so totally sweet of Nic Nic! When I received the package, I was wondering what it was because I knew that I hadn't ordered anything from overseas. As for the Bella Bamba, I did a comparison review post a few posts back. It is quite similar to Orgasm but not an exact dupe. I also find it to be a softer cake powder thus it seems to be more pigmented than Orgasm so starting off with a little bit of product and building up the color is best, otherwise you'll end up with clown cheeks. I really like it and I do think that it's actually way more shimmery than Orgasm so I have to be careful of how I apply it so that I don't look like a disco ball.

@Miss Kei Kei--I totally agree with you. The timing of this gift was perfect too since I wasn't feeling so well that day. It reallly perked me up!

If you ever want to do a swap, please let me know!

@Steph--Nic Nic is so sweet and I really hope that her schedule will allow her some time for us to meet up when she comes to Hawaii in March for her wedding. I'd love to meet up with her.

@K--Thanks to you, I experienced Sleek eye dust pigment prior to this lovely gift from Nic Nic. The color that you gave me actually goes together quite well with these colors and I actually did use it in my EOTD too. I forgot to add it in the list of products used. *Kat*

@rhaindropz--I agree with you! The color is gorgeous. It's definitely not something that I would have picked out for myself but I love it.
