Hey guys,

It is the time of the year, when you can just stop for a minute and appreciate the value of friends and family, realize how blessed you are to have these amazing people in your life. When you get a gift, it’s not just something material. By giving something this person shows that he/she cares about you. Isn’t that the most wonderful thing in the world, to know that someone loves you and cares for you?)

That is why I’ve been SUPER excited about the gifts this year. When most of your friends are far away from you, it’s important to know they still remember about you, and show them your love too.

As you can see I got some makeup, which I think is always a great present.

First of all, this makeup kit. It’s from the amazing Italian makeup brand Pupa. I’ve owned a couple of items by Pupa, and they’ve always been very good quality.

This particular kit in bronze color (they also have it in black, as far as I know) contains a cute little makeup bag, eyeshadow quad and an eye pencil.

I am particularly excited about this pencil. It’s shimmery and looks gorgeous on your lower lash line.

The eyeshadow quad is okay. I mean the colors are nice , I just wish Pupa eyeshadows were as pigmented and creamy as my Naked2 palette.

I also got this lovely bronzing powder/highlighter. It’s from Giordani Gold.

I love the packaging too – it has a little snake on it.

I think, it’s too shimmery to use as a bronzer, but it’s a nice highlighter. It reminds me a lot of Mac’s mineralize skinfinish in ‘soft and gentle’.

This is how it looks on my skin.

The last thing I got makeup-wise, is this base coat nailpolish:

It’s called P2Β  Ridgefiller, it’s a German brand. It says ‘Ridgefiller with silk powder for a smooth nail surface’. My friend Katy, who lives in Munich sent it to me, she says it works great for her, so I’m sure I’m gonna love it. I received the package today, so I haven’t used it yet.

She also got me this ADORABLEΒ  cup πŸ™‚ OMG I am so obsessed with it. Thank you, Katy, I love you so much!

My cousin Medeya sent me a lovely sweater from Mango. I love Mango, it’s basically one of my favourite brands. And this sweater is soft, warm, loose and very very cozy – exactly what you need for chilly winter days. And it’s very versatile too – you can pair it with all sort of boots, jeans, accessories, jewellery, etc. So thank you Medeya, I love you and I love the gifts you give me πŸ™‚

And finally, I wanted to reming you guys about the giveaway!!!

I got something new for it:

Hi guys,

Sorry for not posting for a whole week. I can’t say I’ve been super busy or something, it’s just the cold weather is affecting me too much – I haven’t even bought any makeup! 😦

Anyways, I’m back and I would like to tell you about my obsession with everything burgundy. I must admit, just a couple of months ago I thought it was ugly and boring, but everything changed when I got burgundy lipstick from Vivienne Sabo, then I got a lovely nailpolish, which I think is a perfect dark red color.

I am not a fan of bright red, so burgundy is what I call ‘perfect red’. The nailpolish is in color ‘320 Rapid Ruby’ and the lippy is in color 107. And sorry for the mess on the background πŸ™‚

I am a tiny bit conscious of going out wearing this dark lipstick, coz I am not used to it. For the last couple of years I’ve been mostly wearing nude, pink or peachy lip products. But I’ve decided to give it a shot, and I am definitely going to wear it during the photoshoot, I am having in January.

It’s quite a pain in the butt to apply it precisely though. Especially for those, who are not used to bright/dark lipsticks. So I do recommend to use a lip liner. Trust me, it makes the application as easy as it can be.

I told you guys, I haven’t been makeup shopping for a week now, but I recently got this cute mug from Starbucks, which I am absolutely obsessed with.

Oh, and you guys can see my Sephora clear makeup bag, Sephora lipstick, Vivienne Sabo lip gloss, Urban Decay De Slick setting spray and my favourite Neutrogena lip balm.

I also got something special for my GIVEAWAY, which I’m going to tell you in my next post.
