I was very, very disappointed to discover I only had 62.. it looked like a lot more than that looking at bottles! Haha. Still, not a bad collection I don’t think. Well, 62 was the number in my collection as of December 1st. Today, December 2nd, I got three packages! One was the Illamasqua no13 lashes I bought from Wayne Goss’s sale, one was unmistakably another box from Brooke, but I was puzzled as to what the last one was. Turns out it was from Jacie! :D Oh my word I was so excited – although I’m still puzzled as to why there’s no indication of international postage on the package from Jacie, haha. So in the space of a day, my collection managed to grow an impressive amount! Take a look at these.. First, the package from Brooke.

I’ve been so excited about the matte topcoat – I know I’m so late jumping onto that bandwagon but better late than never, right? I can’t stop myself from mattifying everything in sight, glitters look especially amazing! Thanks a lot Brooke :D

And here’s what I got from Jacie:

A sweet note in a Koala bear card (had to be something typically Aussie in there didn’t there? In case you’re unaware, Jacie is from Australia and we’re doing a swap), sweeties! (These look like Refreshers but I haven’t had any yet so can’t report back), a Milo bar (god damn this was so nummy, it was a bit like a Lion bar but with more caramel and some brownie bits.. om nom nom), two of the CUTEST little cupcake lipglosses, an eyebrow pencil and some tinted brow gel – I wonder if she’s been looking at my EOTDs and thinking my eyebrows need some grooming? Charming ;P

And here’s the rest of the goods!

I’ve been gagging to try out Glitter Gal holos ever since Jacie swatched them on her blog – my word, they are beautiful! I mattified the brown earlier, sooo gorgeous.

So, a massive huge THANK YOU to Brooke and Jacie for expanding my collection for me XD

  1. So weird. I looked at 2 polishes and thought how lovely they were and it turns out that I already have them! How clever I am.
    Barry M Tangerine and GOSH Holographic – trouble with the GOSH is that you can’t slap the next coat on until having left a decent interval and that annoys me…
    Love your stuff.

  2. @Nefertari: Thanks :D I got the wheels from one eBay – just type in nail display wheels :)

    @Jacie: Grr :( try DMing me on Twitter instead

    @Carla: Heeehe.. I know, I am a terrible enabler!

    @Jaljen: Haha don’t worry, I do the same thing :D its just an addiction that’s all ;P yeah that annoys me about GOSH holo. It’s actually a better holo effect that ChG OMG though – I always just assumed OMG would be the better one but I’ve never swatched them together – now I have it’s clear that the GOSH one is so much more holographic!
