Super Swap with mademoisellelorraine!!!!

Hello Friends!! I hope you have all been well! :) I have a swap to share with you today.

I'm really lucky cause it is with the beautiful and amazing mademoisellelorraine !!!

She is so lovely and truly a girl who is beautiful inside and out. Do click on the link above to check out her amazing blog!

Isn't she beautiful?? So stunning. Wait... one more photo of her before we get into the goodies she sent me.

Woohoo! So GORGEOUS!! 
SORRY GUYS! She is absolutely happily married to the man of her dreams. :)

Now into the goodies!!

Oh boy! She really spoilt me! We did set a budget but both of us did not stick to it! Hahaha. 

We exchanged our gifts before Christmas, so when you see her video and my video, you will see a lot of Christmas wrapping. Uhmm... sorry, I guess you know by now that I have been and still am sick? Which can incapacitate me for days or weeks. So I am very thankful that Lorena (that's her) is so very very patient.

So, are you ready? Here it comes!!

iQ Cosmetics Color Collection Shadow Palette  

I am still playing with this palette and I can report that it is very pigmented!!

L’Oreal La Palette Nude in 01 Rose

So So lovely! I want to wear this everyday. I doubt if this will be available in Australia anytime soon, as we are yet to get the Maybelline Nudes palette.

Super spoiled with lots of beautiful high quality lipsticks! Look how pretty the colours are!!

Revlon Lip Palette in Hello Honey
Chantecaille Lipstick in Hibiscus
Oriflame More by Demi Lipstick in Hollywood Red
Oriflame More by Demi Lipstick in Princess Pink
Oriflame Giordani Gold Iconic Lipstick SPF 15 in Creamy Nude
Oriflame The One 5-In-1 Colour Stylist Lipstick Red Haute Couture

Close ups - they are all so creamy and very comfortable on the lips!

I love them so much, I wear them only once in a while because I don't want them to run out! Oriflame is not available in Australia - why?? why!?!

Ohhh these creme eye shadows are the bomb! The texture is mousse like and very light, yet the colour payoff is so amazingly strong. LOVE IT!

Oriflame Giordani Gold Luminous Cream Eyeshadow in Frosted White
Oriflame Giordani Gold Luminous Cream Eyeshadow in Bronzed Burgundy

Cute huh? When I saw this, I thought, Chocolates? Bon Bons?

Oriflame Tender Care Gift Box - four different flavours of balms that you can use on your lips, your hands, just about everywhere! They did amazing things for my very dry cuticles! A little goes a long way. :)

Oh la la! Look at this delicious plate of eyeshadows!

From the top - clockwise:

NYC 913 High Street - Blue eyeshadow single

Kiko Eyeshadow Palette Color Fever

Manhattan Cosmetics Eyemazing Effect Eyeshadow Top of the Taupe 96D

VS Shimmer Eyeshadow in Ultraviolet

All are simply stunning, but I must say I really do think the Kiko one is outstanding!! LOVE IT!!


I was so stunned when I saw these. Flabbergasted. The two items go so well together and make the perfect night out on the town look. 

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette Colour Coded Eyeshadows in the Golden Goddess

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Luminous Modern Matte Lipstick in Lost Cherry

Ahh Diego, whoever you are, you are amazing!

diego dalla palma la vie en beige nude eye palette

The perfect nude palette for the working girl. I love this palette so much. It takes the thinking out of getting ready quickly in the morning. The way I would use it is as a duo vertically - so there are 3 duos, then as a trio horizontally - so 2 (hurray for me I can count) and as quads with the middle colours overlapping, or skipped if you combine the outermost colours so 3 quads.

Hurray! I now own something from D&G & they certainly live up to the D&G style of "Sweet & Sharp"

Dolce & Gabbana Glam Liner in Dahlia 3
Dolce & Gabbana Eyeshadow Duo Desire 105 Tester
Dolce & Gabbana Eyeshadow Quad Stomboli 130 Tester

I am proud to report that these eyeshadows and the eyeliner are of a high quality and last very long. AND I LOVE THEM!!!!

So pretty!

Hand made Hair Band
Oriflame The One Black Khol Eye Pencil x 2
Pierre Rene Eye Matic in Black
Look by Bipa Blender Brush

That Pierre Rene eye pencil is crazy! It does not budge. After I tested it on the back of my hand, it did not come off with just water & soap. I had to use the heavy duty eye makeup remover!

Oriflame Red Case Travel Makeup Kit.

Isn't this the coolest makeup kit ever? I love travel kits like this. So many pigmented colours to choose from!

I am so spoiled....

YSL Wildly Gold Complete Makeup Palette.

I was thinking about getting this as a Christmas present to myself, but she did it. She went and got it for me!!! OMG!! I love it. It's so perfect. From the packaging to the colours. You simply can't go wrong with YSL.

My eyes were so dazzled by this!

neve cosmetics Duochrome palette.

Yup. Truly. My eyes went a bit blurry when I saw this. The colours are amazing and so different from what I already have. I am so going to love creating looks with this. Every single colour is just amazing. LOVE IT!!!
