So this is going to me my what I got for christmas post, and trust me, the picture above represent ALL I got ( exept for money and Gift Card to the movies and the mall which I almost already spent entirely (things I bought with that money that I have at the moment are in this post ) ). I did not only showcase the "makeup" stuff. I got ONLY makeup, and pajamas + socks, but that doesn't count, everyone get those, right? :)
If some of you want to know, I had a great christmas overall with the person I love. I saw friends and close-close-close family, which is all that kind of matter to me. My mom being raised with 9 brothers and sisters who have kids that have kids that will maybe soon have kids... I seriously will NEVER want to see them ALL at the same time! The less headaches I have, the better I feel !
So, onto the present! Be assured that I thanked everyone that gave me everything, even a christmas hug !:) I'm gratefull for everything that I got and even if it's hard, I try not to take a thing for granted.
First of, I got my very first makeup mirror, because believe it or not, I used to do ALL my make up, even the crazy things, with a pocket mirror... I know, it sounds super ridiculous, but now I feel a lot better to have my two hands free while applying things all over my face!
Then I got a box which was painted by one of my mom's friend only for me :) That means that it's the ONLY one like that in the world and that I'm the lucky girl who as it ! My mom got it mainly so that I can carry my brushes and a little make up in a sturdy box so that my brushes don't break apart and that the make up stay safe. I like it really much and for now, it's a decoration on my desk :)
Then I got some MAC stuff from my boyfriend, my mom and I also bought some with a gift card.
-I got MAC Fix + mainly because I always wanted it. I used it a couple time for foiling shadows and pigments and I like it very much! I no longer believe the " You can use water, it'll do the same job "! Fix + works way better in my book.
-Then I got 3 lipsticks, one from Back to Mac-ing and two from my mom!
The first one, Please Me, is a matte lipstick. It's seriously not as drying as I thought it would be, but do not have chap lips under that! It'll look so gross and patchy ( talk about experience here!! ).
Then the two next one which are the one that my mom got me ( you knew that already huh? You can't back to MAC for Viva Glam! ) are the Viva Glam Cyndi and Viva Glam Gaga. Those are a lot more forgiving on winter lips ( again, experience is in the house! )
-The next thing is Painterly paintpot, which I got to replace my Soft Ochre one which is dead-done. I think I like it better since it has a pink undertone which suits my skin a lot better!
-Beside that is something my boyfriend got me, the Black Track Fluidline. Remember that Buxom Leatherette lash liner!? Well I used it 'till nothing was left. I needed a new Gel Liner since it's basically all I used to do my winged liner and I kind of said it to my boyfriend.. So now I have a new one! I started using it on the 1st.. Let's see how much time it takes to go through!
-Then there's Gesso Eyeshadow, matte basic white, that I got from my boyfriend also. You can also see in those pictures how I depot my eyeshadow by the way! :) I'm a nerd who like to depot MAC things.. And I'm so serious.. :)
-The last MAC item is Dame Powder Blush which is a satin finish ( my large pore like matte or satin, no shimmers and/or glitters! ). I haven't played with it quite yet, but it's an occasion to see how I depot blushes.. I put a round piece of magnet underneath the stickers :)
-I got those 2 MARK make up bags which are SO pretty to me, I LOVE them! ( and I've been bugging my mom for them since ... June? July? ahah! )
-Then there was those to Avon product in my stockings. One of them is a Nourishing Banana & Coconut Milk shower gel and the other is an Antibacterial hand gel in Nourishing Vanilla. I haven't tried these yet.
Glamour Doll Eye Full Sized loose shadows. You might be like " Phhft!? 16 !? I learned to count at 5 and I aint no see 16! " well, you're kind of half right. There was a slight mistake in my order that made me the owner of two Trophy Wife and left out without Lovers Lane ( which is red ). It was quickly fixed by the lovely Vee and I'll get it soon :) ( as well as other things, but that another story ). Right now I can say much, I haven't played enough with them, but I love them so far!!
Then I got myself the Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye make-up remover, which I'm not sure about yet.. It's says oil free but it's so oily at the same time... I dont know.. We'll see!
Then there's the LA Slash Splash Proof Sealer Eyeshadow Sealer/base that I got myself on recommendation from Petrilude. He swears that it's THE things to keep glitters on your eyeball and since it was only 7$, I picked it up!
The two Wet n Wild palette were bought a week before christmas, but I wanted to put them in a "haul", so here they are. The left one is Night Elf, who came with a kind of good eyeliner, and on the right is Snow Sprite, who came with a crappy silver eyeliner. As for the palette themselves, they really good! I enjoy the Color Icon range a lot!
* Are you done yet!? No.. But soon! :)*
-First, I got a 40$ worth of Angel's Delight ( or as you can read it, in french we say "Délice des Anges" and that sounds kind of soft and sensuals xD Oh well ) I ask if the manager ( like, the manager there actually WORKS in the store, and she's so feakin sweet! ) to divide the price in half since I wanted a big chunk of it, and she kindly did it for me!
-I also got a Candy Cane bubble bar, simply to use it since it smells so dang good,
-And I also got a " Matriochka ". It's like the russian dolls, you know, there's a doll in a doll who ate a doll etc etc etc!? Well same concept here! There's two piece of Soap outside that smell like the So White Bath Bomb ( or like apple if you're not that cool to know ( just kidding :D )) and inside there's an actual So White bath bomb ( remember? it's the apple scented one! ) and a cinders bath bomb ( which smells like cider actually ).
*Keep on reading! There's 2 pictures left!! *
- I got a set of Joe Nail Polishes that I haven't used yet but I'm sure they're fantastic.. I fell in love with them when Alicia Aka FunnyFace beauty sent me one... They stay on my nails 10 times better than my OPI ones!
-Next thing is a Joe Fresh Lip Gloss in Poppy. Out of the tube it doesnt smell good at all, but after only a few few few seconds, the smell goes away and you're left with a really pigmented lip gloss, as of now, I like it.
-Then I got a Clear mascara and brow gel ( don't you love those easy names!? ) for my brows.. Mine are thick enough to only be tamed, no filling needed!
-Lastly is their Fine tip liquid eyeliner in Black. I had it before and remember liking it, so I thought why not!?
Last picture, but surely not the least...
their website and he saw that where he was going was super close from the Dinair Head Quarters and talk about it with my mom. Since this kit fell into the Christmas Budget this year ( no money questions please, those things doesn't regard you guys! ) They agreed on getting me a starter kit. This is by far most present I ever got for Christmas and I'm really happy! I'm still trying to get the hands and skills on this.. It's kind of hard!!
I really hope that you guys enjoy this post, it took me a little to gather up everything, but now I'm happy that it's all done :)

Much love, and thanks for reading!
