Birthday Presents

As title suggested, this post is about my recent Birthday presents. This year again we had dinner at home but I did get some decent presents. First of all, let me show you my cake. It’s a red velvet cake with sour cream frosting. I like how simple the cake looks and it was very yummy. I wish it was less sweet though.

Some of the presents I got. I actually got a lot more from my husband but they’re still on the way so I’ll show you guys later. So let me first show you what I have now, OPI Soak-off Gel Lacquer Show Stoppers kit, Guerlain Meteorites Perles D’or and Bobbi Brown Modern Classic Lip & Eye Palette. I will show swatches of these in a later post.

The Show Stoppers gel kit has 6 glitter soak off gel lacquers from OPI holiday Burlesque Collection. Out of all 6 shades my favorites are Extra-va-vagana! and Show it & glow it!

The whole collection also has 12 shades of regular polishes of which 6 are the same glitter polishes as the gel set and other 6 are non glitter polishes.

Guerlain Meteorites Perles D’or for holiday. I’ve been collecting the Guerlain holiday meteorites for several years. Even though I will never be able to finish off any of them, they’re just too precious to pass up.

This year it’s the first holiday meteorites since they change the packaging. The back of the jar…

There’s a little bee on top of the lid.

The cute balls reminds me of the candies I had when I was a kid.

Modern Classic Lip & Eye Palette for the holiday. Hmm I just realized all the items are actually limited edition items for this holiday.

4 lip glosses, 10 eye shadows and 2 brushes.

On the side of the box, it tells what the names are for all the shadows and glosses.

The packaging is really simple and classy. Come to think of it, next year it’ll be Bobbi’s 20 year anniversary. I wonder what items she’ll come up.

She uses two pieces of hinges for connection, very unique.

The back of the packaging also tells the names of the colors.

When you first open it, it shows the 4 lip glosses and 2 brushes.

The eyeshadows are on the other side.

Take a close look at the glosses…

and the eyeshadows…

To end it, there’s another picture of the palette.

I didn’t get to swatch the palette and everything else, but I promise I’ll be posting them very soon. Please stay tuned and thanks for reading.
