Friday, December 18, 2009 & blogsale haul

As i said on my last post, i have a package waiting to be picked up. I went to the PO a while ago & to my surprise, i have 2.

Hurray!animal smileys

One is from & the other one is from ECT of e.motion of motion's blog sale.
I'm actually glad that my haul had already arrived, i know that now is a peak season & there's a high chance that packages would be received later than late (yeah, i use late because it's always late here).

Let's start first with the blogsale haul. I bought random items.
  • ELF Studio Corrective Concealer Palette
  • ELF Candy Lip Gloss in Candy Fix, Frosting Fanatic & Mocha Maniac
  • ELF Mineral 2 in 1 Conditioning Gloss in Supermodel
  • Everyday Minerals Start to Finish Bronzer
  • NYX Lip Pencil in Pink Nude
Her items are so cheap! I was actually not expecting that it would be able to receive it already since i just bought it a couple of weeks ago. But hey, im not complaining! i love early packages!

Now on to the haul. I'm so excited about this because the box is huge!

It's because the curled styros are all over the box to make sure that the items are safe & sound...

These are what's inside!

I was seriously debating if im going to open it up already since it's gonna be christmas. Just so that i'll have something to open & enjoy on that day evil grin smileys

But then i know that it's silly if i'll do that because i already know what's inside..LOL about that..

Anyway, on we go to the content

  • Benefit B-Spot Fragrance coffret
  • Benefit She Laq Sealer
  • Silver Necklace with a snowflake pendant
The necklace is so cute!

Perfect for the winter, don't you think?
Im not exactly a necklace person but i think this looks really cute! I'm not sure if i'm going to use this though....

One thing that i'm very curious about is the sealant. I know how it works, but i want to see for myself if it does work! So i got myself this!

As always, Benefit has that cute packaging! It looks so mysteriously magical.

This is the back carton

These are what's inside

I don't think the brushes are actually good enough, but hey it's still a freebie!
I'll let you know what i think about it as soon as i have tried it.

Lastly is the Benefit B Spot coffret

I already had my first experience of B Spot thanks to Sarah, when she included a sample of it on her love package. I like it then & was actually surprise to realize that this lasted on me for like a whole day!

I sprayed it in the morning..i thought that the scent disappeared right around afternoon, but it seems like i just got immune to it. Bf told me later on that i still smell good. I think this is the only Eau de Toilette that lasted on think that this is not a Eau de Parfum! great staying power~

I'm actually glad that the scent is not wrong for me...

I did not realize that the packaging got silhouettes of women. I only realize it when i looked at the back.

Not wanting to sound a nymphomaniac but after seeing this from a far, i thought it was G spot plus the silhouette of the woman
confused smileys

Going back, these are what's inside.

  • B Spot EDT full size
  • B Spot EDT sample size
  • handy mirror
I like how 'cool' it looks. The Pastel green is very nice to look at!

As for the bottle, it's just round, nothing interesting.

I'm really very happy with my haul. Looks like i've been a good girl because Santa delivered it earlier!
innocent smileys

Now what has been keeping me busy?
Gift wrapping!

I decided that i want to have a red & blue gifts this christmas so i have to buy a lot of metallic foils & double sided tape just for the ribbons too.

Actually, i changed the color of the ribbons today compare to this pic. Blue gifts got red ribbons & red gifts got blue ribbons.

I'm not yet even halfway done with all the wrapping. sad smileys

But it's ok since i'm mostly done with christmas shopping. Though i still have 2 more people on my list that i don't really have an idea what to get....I guess i'll be finish with my list this weekend!

I like looking at a color coordinated gifts..though not quite yet because again, i haven't changed the ribbons on my gifts when i took this pic, but now they are already color coordinated. yay!

The white holographic gift is actually the gift for bf. Just so that it would stand out to signify that it is special..LOL

How about you?
Do you have a theme for your gifts?

Hope you are enjoying your day/evening,ladies!

Jaa ne~!

LOL no way! I don't have a theme, because I tend to recycle a lot of packaging. I'm not spending money on that! Other people can.
