Accumulated Acquisitions | Gifts

This may be a pretty boring and short post, but I am just back from a two day short trip to Macau and haven't been posting for a few days now.  I figure a short update of some sort will keep you entertained, and warm up my blogging fingers a little bit.

Free gifts and samples

Since my last acquisition post, which was around a month ago, I have been naughty.  I made several local purchases (that will be another post), and hence got some freebies along those shopping trips.  This is just showcasing those gifts and bits that I got for free.

My friend came back from an Italian pilgrimage and aside from a very beautiful calendar card with Pope John Paul II's image on, she bought me an Agnes b mascara - which is made in Italy!  How sweet of her~

Apparently, the brand Leader's Clinic is working with magazines and sending out masks, got one of these last month, as well as this month!  The rest of the free gifts include two contact lens solution - which I have to give away to someone; Astalift face and base - excited to try this; and a body milk that smells lovely.

Not really much to say in this post really, huh?  Perhaps I'll disclose a little 'preview' of some upcoming posts then...

Mail order and swaps

You know I'm an avid online shopper from my various haul posts including this latest one.  I also love doing international swaps with beauty lovers all over the world.  In the month of February I received two swap parcels from Japan and the States respectively.  Besides waiting for a US swap package to arrive, and some MAC and Soap & Glory products from UK, I have received packages I ordered from LunaBleu and Illamasqua.  (Do you want initial impression posts on these, or wait until I can review them?)

Upcoming posts

In my draft folder there are over 20 unfinished posts, for instance: - Project 10 Pan update - Sheet Mask reviews - V&R Flowerbomb Dupe - Kiss Me mascaras review - His Hair Story - His Perfume Story - Cle de peau night emulsion review - FOTDs - etc, etc.

  1. Initial impression posts! And LunaBleu? Haven't heard of it!

  2. One vote for initial impression posts! And LunaBleu? Haven't heard of it? Care to elaborate?

    1. @blair
      no problem! i will take pictures and do initial impression as soon as possible! Lunableu is a bath and body company, based in USA. they make very yummy body creams and stuff. their website is lunableu dot com!

  3. Ooooh I did not know Clinique All ABout Eyes had a "rich" version! Sounds perfect for the eczema I have around my eyes!

    1. Gaby you're welcome, I did try the rich version before, it is slightly more balmy in the pot but still moderately fast-absorbing on the skin. Definitely not like the original gel-cream texture. Quite interesting, give it a try if you fancy! :)
