The Wednesday Question


So...did you receive any beauty-related gifts this holiday season? Share with us!

I haven't celebrated Christmas yet (we're postponing it until both of my parents are feeling better) but I can share with you what I got for my birthday, which was on the 13th. For a while I was collecting the Escada limited edition fragrances (my love affair with those started when they released Tropical Punch many years ago) but I've been slacking on buying any new ones for the past few years. I'm not sure how my dad knew this, but for my birthday he gave me three that I did not already own: Ocean Lounge, Taj Sunset and Moon Sparkle. I was floored!

  1. Nothing beauty related-yet. However, due to illness, Xmas with extended family was postopned. I did pick up a bottle of Love's Soft Jasmine for myself. It was one of my favorite scents when I was a teenager.

  3. Aw what a sweet dad you have! I hope your folks on are the mend!

    My husband's family are ultra-fundamental and don't celebrate Christmas so we don't either (it's sad but I do still sing carols and make candy and hang out with family). I do miss getting lots of prezzies especially makeup loot!

  11. I got Two Faced Editor Darlings Makeup Collection. I'm really excited because I've never owned/used anything from them and this is a great way to start!

  12. I got a Burt's Bees gift basket that I can't wait to try out.

    Also I used to collect those Escada perfumes every year as well but stopped after they all started smelling the same. Last one I bought and used (bought 2 bottles and finished both) was Island Kiss.

  13. My mom got me the bundlemonster 20 piece nail art kit without even asking if I wanted it! (I did) She also got me a bunch of fimo canes, which I have never used before, so I'm going to have a lot of fun with nail art this year. ;)

  14. My son bought me the Sephora Pro Lesson Natural eyes palette. It's the first Sephora brand product I've ever tried and I was seriously shocked at how nice it is. The packaging is beautiful, very well made with a large mirror, and the shadows are better than the UD Vice palette I returned. Creamy, pigmented, and no fallout. Half matte and half shimmer. Nice big pans of shadow- matte cream, medium and dark brown... shimmer champagne, gold, and deep copper. I haven't tried the little liner that comes with it. The only negative I can think of is that the "directions" for the eye looks are part of the packaging, it could have been a lot smaller if they had put them on cards or something.

  15. A lot of the stuff I got this year honestly was makeup haha
    Most of the stuff I asked for I got the idea to even want it from reading your blog(:

  16. My mom bought me one of those e.l.f. beauty on the go palettes in day at the beach, but it was misplaced or something among all the other purchases. I rarely get any makeup from anyone so I was thrilled she offered to buy me something -- especially since she has always frowned down upon my makeup obsession. Fingers crossed it'll turn up.

  17. You got a great b-day gift. I got OPI The Top Ten mini polishes 2012. Last year I got the OPI Best of The Best mini set 2011. There is only a three polish difference. I don't mind because I like the colors.

  18. I got Deborah Lippmann Let's go Crazy, and an OPI nail polish remover. The nail polish was on my wish list, and I'm very glad I got it.

  19. I received the Bath and Body Works Cashmere Glow lotion and I love it. The smell is beautiful. Not too much and very hydrating.

  20. What a thoughtful gift from your father! I love surprises like that! I love when people understand your tastes and never need to ask what you want/need for Christmas. I'm a big fan of surprises in general!

    My stocking contained I Made You a Mix Tape solid perfume by TokyoMilk. My mom picked it up for me because of the name alone. She knows me pretty well. ;) I like the scent too.

    My mom & I always shop the Lush after Christmas sale, since the Emotional Brilliance makeup range was on sale B1G1 Free, she indulged by makeup hoarding tendencies and I got a liquid lipstick and cream eyeshadow.
