Christmas Gifts 2010- Beauty

So here is the beauty part of what I got from Christmas! And yes, I finally found that little bugger of a battery charger! You know how you have organized chaos and can find everything but everyone else sees a mess? And then you have to clean up a bit and you lose track of everything? Yeah, that's what happened. First, my address book and journal (both are still MIA!). Then, my camera charger was targeted as the next victim but luckily ended in a happier result. :)

MAC Cool Thrillseekers pigment set, Benefit Powderflage, the Beauty Insider Benefit gift (a gift to myself, I suppose...since I used some of my points!), MUFE eyeshadows in #47 and #98, NARS Bellissima eyeshadow duo, Benefit Some Kind-A Gorgeous, Smashbox blush in Flush, MAC Viva Glam V lipglass, MAC Oyster Girl lipglass, NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil in Sex Kitten, OPI for Sephora Handpicked For Me nail polish, Coastal Scents 10 blush palette, Coastal Scents Metal Mania palette, Urban Decay 24/7 Jackpot, Benefit Femme Metale set, NARS lipgloss in Turkish Delight

^now to get to reviewing and swatching it all...good thing I found my charger! :P

Sephora Perfume Sampler. I have one major problem with this. This wasn't supposed to even be sold here in Canada, so why did my local store have it? And better yet, why didn't they warn my husband that they took the voucher out of the back for the perfume?! I still have to call customer service. I would not have minded if the voucher had been left in tact, because the border is just a short drive. I just don't feel like he should have had to pay full price for a set of deluxe samples. :(

Two PINK scents- Fruity & Bright and Sunny & Happy. They smell so good. PINK body splashes are quickly becoming some of my favorite scents.

Secret Wonderland body spray, Butterfly Flower body spray, Mango Mandarin body spray, Secret Wonderland bath gel, and Mango Mandarin body lotion.

A cupcake bath set, Body Shop deodorant, and Body Shop Coconut Oil Hair Shine (on the recommendation of Linh!).

Not pictured:
*LUSH Stardust giftbox- Iced Wine shower jelly, Bon Bon lip scrub, Snow Fairy shower gel, Candy Cane bubble bar, Angel's Delight soap, Twilight bath bomb, and Sugar Plum Fairy scrub
*LUSH Matryoshka (still available on site)- So White bath bomb, So White soap, Cinders bath bomb

*Bath and Body Works Dancing Waters body spray
*MAC Pink Friday lipstick, Cremesheen Glass in Partial to Pink, Patisserie lipstick

I think that covers everything beauty. If I'm forgetting something, I'll probably get around to reviewing it at some point anyway. :) I'm absolutely loving the NARS Bellissima eyeshadow duo! What's your favorite beauty-related product that you received for Christmas?

Linh said...

Awesome Christmas gifts, Wendy! =)

That particular set of Sephora Perfume Sampler doesn't include a voucher. You're pretty much buying a set of deluxe samples! I know how you feel because the hubbie bought something similar from Sephora last Christmas! =(

Yay! I really hope you enjoy the Coconut Oil Hair Shine! I love it so much!

I didn't receive any beauty-related product for Christmas. To be honest, I'm totally fine with it though.

@Christine- I had never smelled it before, but it smells so good. :) And I will have to look at that one. I see what the fuss is about with NARS shadows. They're super easy to blend. :)

@Melissa- Yay! Thought you might like the pink shade. <3

@Linh- Really? Because I was reading reviews where the voucher was in the back of the box. So I opened the back to find where it should have been, but it was empty. So I assumed that they took it out when they brought it here. A lot of people were complaining about not getting the voucher as well, which I consider very disappointing on Sephora's part. This is the one I got:

Hope you had a great Christmas! :)
