In other news, my mama came home from Australia and New Zealand (for a mere 10 hours, before leaving again), with gifts in tow! Bless her heart, she is not the woman who wears a lot of makeup. She collects her favorites (Sisley, Chanel, Shiseido) like a mad woman, but swears that she is "too old" to actually wear it. Thus, you can assume who becomes the main benefactor! Instead, she is the ultimate fragrance and skin care Queen! Her room is a bit like a mini Costco, in that she stores ridiculous amounts of skincare and fragrances, complete with several backups! Us girls usually only need to make a stop at "her store" in order to replenish our own personal items.
As I was sorting through the things she brought back with her, I thought I'd snap a picture. Chanel's Glossimer in Delight was one item, which is a lavender shade with bits of glitter. Being someone that does not like glitter (or purple lips), I must confess that this is a very pretty and sheer shade on. It tones down a bit of the natural pigmentation of my lips, and is very nice all on its own, but I'm sure even better atop something else. I don't own MAC's Lavender Whip, but this would be a more do-able version for me. The darker lip products in the corner (lovely on) are by an Australian brand called Mode. The classic Bvlgari pour Femme made its way, as well as one special collection that I have been dying to try for myself.
This one is compliments of my dear cousin in Auckland, and is called Thin Lizzy 6 in 1 (left hand corner tin). At the time of the wedding, I had some tan lines near my shoulders that I had picked up during my bachelorette weekend in Vegas. Somehow it slipped my mind (until the day prior) that this was the case, and I became extremely concerned for the sake of our wedding photos! No need to fear, my cousin trots in with this Thin Lizzy business, which is meant to do everything short of washing my dishes.
Big plans for the weekend? Have you tried any of these things?
