A Cheek-y UK Haul {Unboxing Video + SPECIAL GUEST????}


Guess who's back from the pit of assignments/essays/reading responses/midterms? ʘ‿ʘ
(....well not me...kinda...since I still have a bit of work to do, but that's what reading week is for!)
(for those unfamiliar, 'reading' week = Canadian spring break-ish)

BUT ANYWAYS, SPECIAL SHOUTOUT TO DAPHNE FROM SUBGENRE OF A DREAM FOR HOOKING A PLAYA UP WITH THIS UK HAUL!
____________________________________________________________

It all started with the Illamasqua UK sale back in January, where their blushers were 1/3 of their original price. It was the only thing I could think about while I was in class (WE ALL KNOW WHERE MY PRIORITIES LAY, OK), so I asked Daph to hook a playa up and forward my orders to me. 

IT WAS A SOLID PLAN UNTIL THERE WERE ONLY TWO SHADES OF BLUSHERS LEFT ON SALE SO THAT WAS A NO-GO. But then I caved in, and pulled a Sleek and Superdrug haul and Daph played the middle man in all this!  ʘ‿ʘ

Enough rambling, here's the unboxing video + haul photos! 
(Oh dear lawd, the video's blurry + low quality so I apologise 123235465x in advance if you decide to watch...FIRST TIME FILMING AND UPLOADING PROBLEMS ;-;)



OH HELLO SPECIAL GUEST JENN (A Beautiful Zen)!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Daph wrote me a letter in which she called me "crazy blush lady"....I deny nothing. ^


(These cheek tints are what makes me beautiful...ʘ‿ʘ)


I found Hydraluron on sale and the No.7 Hot Cloth Cleaner this past weekend, so I picked both up!
(SO NO, I DIDN'T GET THEM IN THE UK)
____________________________________________________________

So, in total, I picked up:

- Sleek blushes in 'Rose Gold', 'Flushed', and 'Pomegranate' (Daph pressured me to pick up Pomegrante, so)
- MUA 1D blushers in 'Coral Cutie' and 'Rose Riot'
- MUA blushers in 'Bon Bon', 'Bubblegum', and 'Dolly'
- Fresh Cheeks! blushers in 'Guava' and 'Lychee' (Not gonna lie, I picked both of these up for their names...I used to be called 'lychee' because it sounded like my Chinese name...)
____________________________________________________________


One of the better photos of us and I'm blurry *-*
Oh, and I got both of us matching mugs for filming!

____________________________________________________________

Anyways, I apologise for my absence for the past few weeks! Fourth year university - 3/10, would not recommend. ;-; (I will be catching up on blogs this week though!)

What UK products should I haul up next time? ʘ‿ʘ
(I am 5ever thankful to Daph for being our drug makeup dealer)

    2. THANKS FOR MAKING THE TREK TO MY PLACE :D
      (Eh, the photos turned out awesome because my camera makes them awesome. I could shoot at the worst angle and they'd still look nice, I bet. LOL NEXT TIME WE SHOULD FILM THAT. MAKING THE PRODUCTS LOOK ~ARTISTICALLY RANDOM~)

  6. ‘damnit Daph' UH EXCUSE ME??????? I WAS DUCT TAPING EVERYTHING TO MAKE SURE THAT IT DIDNT UNRAVEL IN THE SHIPPING PROCESS (not gonna lie and say that I was having a marvelous time doing so and might have lost control of the amount of duct tape I used....) So there's a 3rd party, I was wondering how even the crazy blush lady might have done too big a haul. and yes, like Jenn said, you should tots film your creative process of photographing, I'll be here taking notes. Also YOU HAVE A CHINESE NAME????

  20. You can never have too many blushers!!! I got Sleek's Pomegranate Blush when I did a swap with a UK blogger. It got lost in my stash and I just recently found it again so I'm finally playing with it and testing it. Looks like one of your MUA blushes broke. I'm noticing it because the last blusher I broke was also MUA lol. I hate it when that happens!

    ReplyDelete
  21. NEVER TOO MANY BLUSHERS!! :D (I've filled up one of my makeup trays with blushers BUT WHATEVES)
    I still haven't had a chance to play with Pomegranate, but I did swatch it and it's beautiful!
    Yeah, one of the MUA blushes broke when it shipped to my friend's place in the UK. (Darn you, Superdrug!)
    I'm content with just leaving it broken though...now I have a loose powder blush!
