Greetings my lovelies!
Last week, I got a parcel from a friend of mine in South California, Sophi. I was excited because this was a parcel I had been expecting for a while. A little after the Sephora Cinderella collection was released, I was super bummed out because I could not get my hands on the highly sought after compact mirror that was a part of the collection. So, I asked my friend in So Cal if she would be the loveliest person on earth and get me one of the mirrors from her local Sephora because they still had a few mirrors in stock. She agreed and told me she would send it to me. However, she is pregnant and she was having a really bad time with her pregnancy at that time so she never got around to sending me the mirror. So when weeks later I finally got her package, I was surprised to see that she had sent me loads of other things! I was really taken aback and very grateful that she took and spent the time to get me things I did not ask her to get me. So I just wanted to share what she sent me!
1. Cinderella Mirror
So this is the only thing I was expecting. It feels so great to finally have this thing! It haunted me for weeks! Honestly, they should have made more of these. I hate to say it, but this mirror is freaking beautiful. I am so immensely grateful to my friend. I would not have been able to get this if it was not for her. Thanks Sophi!!!
2. Cinderella Storylook Palette
Seeing this in the parcel was a huge shock. I had not expected this at all. This was not something I wanted from the collection, but it is gorgeous! It will be a great collection piece along with the mirror and the stuff I bought from the Jasmine collection ^_^
3. Urban Outfitters Nail Polishes and MAC Lipsticks
Sophi is a huge fan of UO and she shops there all the time. I NEVER go to UO because...idk...just cause. She always says that UO has really pretty nail polishes though and she sent me three: Tiny Shorts, Hottub, and Mystic. They are so pretty! Maybe I will have to go to UO to see their nail polishes!
She also sent me two MAC lippies from the Archie Girls collection. She said that I reminded her of Veronica xD Lol. So she sent me two lippies from the Veronica collection in Ronnie Red and Boyfriend Stealer. I cannot believe she sent me these! I only bought one thing from that collection (Betty Bright lipstick) so I did not have these shades already. She is freaking awesome to have sent me these!
(I don't know if that even makes sense....)
So this was also a "haul" of sorts from last week. I will have to give you some background info for this to makes sense. My best friend has younger twin siblings, a boy and a girl. They are high school juniors and last Saturday was their Junior Prom. I don't know if it is odd, but I am very good friends with both of them and I think of them as my own siblings (especially since I do not have younger siblings). Alma, the girl twin, asked me if I would do her makeup. But honestly, I am not good at all at doing other people's makeup. Even something simple is hard for me to do on another person. So I suggested that I would take her to MAC so she could get her makeup done. Their policy is that you have to buy at least 3 products after they do your makeup as "payment" for getting your makeup done. Alma, being 16 years old, did not have the money to buy makeup (plus she just wanted to have her makeup done), so I offered to buy a few things so that she could get her makeup done. Because this was a favor, I did not include this haul in my Project No Buy.
Originally I was going to get three lipsticks, but as I saw the MUA do Alma's makeup, I was hooked on some of the products she used. So I ended up getting the 'Blue Willow' Pressed Pigment, 'Scene' eyeshadow, and the 266 brush. I used all three of these in my House Arryn look.
