Does our postman read my blog?

Just when I thought the postman had forgotten all about me, and possibly also my address, he came and left two packages for me! I had almost forgotten about the two M·A·C palettes I asked a girl on Specktra to CP for me at the end of September. These palettes are from the Magic, Mirth & Mischief! holiday collection. Naturally I initially wanted all four, but decided on two: "Sorceress" and "Smoke & Mirrors". A decision I do not regret for the colors are gorgeous in both of them! I'm usually not into any of the holiday items, but there was something about these palettes that caught my eye immediately.

The palette on the left is "Smoke & Mirrors", and it consists of the following shades: Fire in Her Eyes, Wide-Eyed Wonder, Black Magique, Spell No. 9, Deception and Smoke & Mirrors. The palette on the right, "Sorceress", contains these shades: White Rabbit, Hold My Gaze, Edge of Dark, Magnetized, Hypnotizing and Altered State.

MAC Smoke & Mirrors and MAC Sorceress

In the second package I found my very first Stila products. Or, if truth's to be said I already own the Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Onyx, although I hate it. It's smooth, creamy and a dream to apply, BUT.. and there's indeed a but.. on me it drops tiny specks of kohl around my eyes and down my cheeks. It doesn't give me raccoon-eyes though, the specks just appear and when I try to wipe them away they leave an irritating black line or smear. I hate it! And I really don't understand why people keep praising it. Can someone please let me in on the secret?

Stila Smudge Pot CollectionAnyway, there was no Kajal Eye Liner in my package. On the contrary it contained Stila Smudge Pots! I've heard so much wonderful about these smudge pots, and I've been drooling over the LE Stila Smudge Pot Collection for a while now. When I discovered that a girl on Specktra was selling her brand new backup of this set I jumped on it, and even got it for a few dollars less than retail. This set contains mini smudge pots in the colors "Black" (intense black), "Kitten" (shimmering nude champagne), "Violet" (bright shimmering ultraviolet) and "Starry Night" (deep shimmering navy). Each pot holds 0.07 oz, or 2 grams, contrary to the regular sized ones at 0.14 oz, or 4 grams - which I think is a good size for a product like this. I know it'll last me forever. This set also comes with a mini eye liner brush, and it's super cute! She did also have one of the Barbie Loves Stila smudge pots up for grabs, in the color "Purple Pumps" (purple with pink shimmer), so I got that one too.

Thank you so much, Mr. Postman!
Today you put a smile on my face.

  1. Åh, så deilig å finne en “seriøs” blogg om favorittemnet mitt Wink

  2. Uten skrivefeil også, for den saks skyld Smile

  3. Hjertelig takk for kompliment! Smile

  4. Har du fått Stila smudgepotsene nå eller? jeg har bestilt de nå og jeg gleder meg sjukt til å få dem!

  5. Innlegget handler jo om at jeg fikk M·A·C paletter og Smudge Pots i posten. Wink Jeg har ikke somla meg til å teste dem enda, ting tar litt tid med meg. Formen har liksom ikke vært helt på topp i det siste, og da har sminke fristet minimalt. Si fra når du har fått dine, vil gjerne vite hva du syns og hvordan du bruker dem osv.

  6. Aaah, sorry, det hender jeg skumleser og ikke faar med meg detaljer. jeg sitter og skriver hovedoppgave som skal leveres imorra saa jeg er helt surrete i toppen her jeg sitter! ok, ja jeg skal proeve aa teste de saa fort de kommer. Jeg har egentlig ikke tid til saant, har sykt mye arbeid paa skolen, siste etappen foer graduation. yikes! angrer veldig paa at jeg ikke kjoepte de palettene naa ja….typisk. de to du har er jo de fineste!

  7. Hovedoppgave ja. Lykke til med den, håper det går kjempebra! Jeg er kjempefornøyd med både palettene og Smudge Potsene (pot-ene, potene, potsene?), men jeg har som deg “ikke tid” til sånt. Ikke fordi jeg har det spesielt travelt, men fordi formen min ikke tillater sminkedill for øyeblikket. Nakken min plager vettet av meg, stiv som en stokk, og det setter meg ut av spill. Det hindrer meg selvsagt ikke i å shoppe, du vet nå..
