Showered With Love!

Yesterday I had to work by myself for several hours and it would get pretty crazy. During the craziness, the mailman came and told me that I'm so lucky because I have two packages. I do? I don't recall ordering anything that I was waiting for.

It turns out that I got showered with love because Nic Nic of bang bang she shoots and Georgina of Coffretgorge sent me packages. I was totally surprised and shocked by these love packages as it was completely unexpected.

Since I was so busy, I couldn't open my packages right away and they were really teasing and tempting me. First of all with Georgina's package, I wouldn't have been able to open it up quickly even if I wanted to. It was completely taped up!

It really took some effort to open up her package. The effort that it took though was so totally worth it! There were so many wonderful goodies inside. A beautiful gold pouch which housed some goodies and a printed plastic bag with more goodies inside.

In the printed plastic bag a cute cat coin purse, a Celeteque mini skincare set, Etude House mini Collagen Moistfull (can't wait to try this) and some masks (love masks!).

In the gold pouch a honey/shea butter lip balm (love shea butter), 2 NYX lippies (I've been on a lipstick binge lately), nail polish, an....eyeshadow? (Help Georgina! What is that one item?) It looks gorgeous. AND...oh my! A Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek in Peach Macaron!

I had read some posts about the Puff de Cheek coming out and it sounded interesting. I will definitely try and do a review on this item.

After opening the package, I understood why it was completely taped up. Georgina fashioned pieces of thin styrofoam sheets into a box. I've never seen this done before.

What a totally clever idea! I'm sure that the weight of it was much lighter than a cardboard mailing box. I'm going to have to remember this idea. Thank you Georgina for this wonderful love package!

The lovely Nic Nic's package was just as awesome! In her envelope were two packages that were stuffed with goodies. Also there was a beautiful card. I love sakura and the card is a sakura design.

I just love Japanese packaging. It is so pretty and decorative. In the first package there were masks (love!), Maquillage lipstick sampler set and Dr. Ci Labo samples (various samples). I have used something from this line before (can't remember what it was...haha) and liked it but it was a bit too pricey for me to continue using it.

The second package is actually not quite plastic but more like paper fabric which has the two ribbon ties on the sides. This is also in a sakura print. In this bag there is a Lunasol lipstick, which I'm excited to try, my favorite Gokubuto mascara and I literally squealed when I saw the Hada Labo Moist BB Cream!

My adventure with BB creams will continue! I'm super excited to try this new BB cream out.

I've been having difficulties with color matching lately with both the current BB creams and foundations so I've been on the hunt for something new. I will definitely be doing a review on this in the near future. Thank you so much Nic Nic for thinking of me and sending me this lovely gift.

Once again, thank you to these two ladies who I call friend. I've been truly blessed to have met such wonderful people in the blogging community. I treasure my friendship with each of you. You both have been so generous in your love packages to me.

Oh wow what great surprises!
I love how friends in the beauty community are so nice and generous. I am always tempted by the puff de cheek, I have almost bought one for myself a few times just because I think the packaging is cute. lol
I think that maybe why I bought ones for the swap I did with Winnie. :)

i hope everything works great for you! the celeteque mini trio is a basic skin care routine, i love the moisturizer for hot and humid weather cause its really light and soothing! really good for traveling! i love sharing it. :)

Aww that's so sweet... ;-)

@Brianna--Yes, I totally agree with you in that beauty bloggers are most generous and kind. I'm so glad that I have found this community of wonderful people.

Unfortunately, I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to try things out. On a positive note, it means that I have lots of new things to play with when it slows down.

@breakingrumours--I'll be doing the Hada Labo BB Cream review in a few days. As for my nails, yes and no. I wish that I could say that I did the design work using the konad system but after many attempt to try using it, I have failed miserably. My nails are done with nail polish but it's a dry nail polish. I'm actually quite impressed with it and will be doing a review on it soon.


galpal.hi said...

@sugar sugar--Thank you! I'm hoping that everything works out well on me too.


galpal.hi said...

@coffretgorge--LOL! I'm glad that you think the package looked funny too. It was a challenge to open it up, but so well worth it! You were far too generous and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'm looking forward to when I can try out the skin care items. It probably won't be until mid June though. I'm being very cautious but it's just in case it doesn't agree with my skin. I don't want to have to deal with troubled skin when my son and his in-laws are here in Hawaii.

@Steph--Thank you so much! BB cream review will be up in a couple of days, hopefully.

@Yuming--Thank you! I agree that they were both sooo sweet!
