Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! Today is a very special post. A few weeks ago, I entered a giveaway on Emily Nueva’s blog. She’s a blogger with great style and creativity, and a wide variety of posts. Please take the time to check her out when you get the chance. 🙂
I just want to say thank you to Emily (how cool is it that we both have the same name?). I am so psyched because this is my first blog giveaway that I’ve ever entered–and I won! This proves that sometimes it’s good to just take a chance. Now I must unbox what I got! By the way, the package came from Norway, so I was especially giddy as this is the first international package I’ve ever received!
The first thing I opened was the beautiful handwritten note Emily wrote for me. Isn’t the rose stationary lovely?
The next item I opened was the Tangle Teezer hair brush! This compact hair brush is made for detangling wet hair, and I just love the leopard print. My hair is still quite short, so I mainly just comb it. However, now that I’m growing my pixie cut into a bob, I think I will be using this brush very soon!
Emily also sent me this gorgeous UCanBe 15 color eye shadow pallet. I just love the shimmer nude and bronze shades! The two dark colors in the middle row make an excellent eye liner when wet; while the end shades at the bottom two rows are the perfect pink! I really love how smoothly the colors go on and blend.
Here’s a selfie of me wearing the shimmer pink shades. I used the dark brown shadow to line my eyes in my usual cat eye.
And of course you can’t put on eye shadow without brushes! Emily also sent me these wonderful makeup brushes by Make-Up For You. I actually really needed some new brushes, so this was a pleasant surprise! I used the big fluffy brush for my illuminating powder (worn in the photo above), and the eye liner brush and thicker shadow brush for my eye makeup. The fold-up case is also super convenient for storage.
I feel so blessed to be able to receive this gift! I will definitely be using these products regularly. So now I have a question for you dear readers–should I do a giveaway one of these days? Let me know what you think below!
Thanks for reading 🙂 Please feel free to comment and share 🙂
