Mail Arrived: Nails Inc. and more



For my UK readers/ friends, please quickly go to the end of this post to find a small gift exlusive for you guys!  

//  

As the title states, this is a sharing, or showing, of what I ordered online for some items I can't get in my city.  I am really pissed with the customer service of one shop so I'm not gonna mention it (yet).  If the issue is still not resolved by early next week I will definitely blog about it!


First off, I have ordered two of the more popular make up items from Jemma Kidd Make Up School.  



The Light as Air Liquid Foundation SPF18 in 01, Ultra Light, and Dewy Glow All Over Raidance Cream in 01, Iced Gold, as well.  The foundation is made in Italy and still awaits to be opened.  The highlighting cream I have swatched and tried on, which I actually like!  It is not greasy but glides on smoothly.  My skin has been acting a bit flaky and naughty because I have been a little lazy doing skin care, my powder highlights don't work very well and this one doesn't accentuates my dry skin patches - which is almost like my full face.  It is not too warm, I'd say a neutral sheer gold shimmer.  The only downside is, it is made in China and charges me for 17pounds? Hmm...


Colour is slightly off, don't take this picture too seriously please ;)


I got this set of 2 crackle polishes and 1 silver nail polish from Nails Inc..  Haven't tried them yet, but actually I'd like to try more other colourful sets, anyway, that would be another purchase or story... I couldn't help but look at the "out of stock" sign and sigh~ :S





From ASOS.com, I ordered this Too Faced Holiday'11 Beautiful Dreamer set, a Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in #51 Vanilla, and another Korres set.  I also picked up a non-sinful body lotion and body scrub set from ASOS/ Anatomicals.

The lipgloss and mascara from the Too Faced set I have no interest to keep, so I'm probably going to blog-sale them.  However, I am loving the eyeshadow palette, the blush/ bronzer duo and the shadow insurance.  Talk more on these products later! 

Besides, I also got a giant bottle of Organic Rose Castile Liquid Soap from Dr. Bronner, a pair of mittens, a pair of tights and a jumper which I may show in another post, if you guys want to see it.

Special!!


Inside that Nails Inc. set I got this 10pound-off coupon.  Now here's the gift for my UK readers/ friends.  Whoever comment below with your favourite nail polish brand the soonest, given you are a public follower of my blog and also comment with your email address, I will contact you, get your address and send you this coupon - postage will be paid by me.  I have no use out of this coupon anyway.

Excuse me for the rather poor lighting and quality of pics in this post, I used my worse camera to take them.

For non-UK readers, feel free to share below your favourite nail polish brands and your experience with Nails Inc., if any! ((I shall have an international giveaway soon, probably in late January!))

Cheers :D
