My Holiday Haul

by Bionic Beauty on 09.Jan.2009 · 3 comments

So I got mostly non-beauty related presents this holiday season. Most importantly, I got my upgrade for my Macbook. She’s now furiously running Leopard OSX. Yippee!

But back to beauty… here’s what I got from family and friends.

I got an incredible set of makeup brushes from SmashboxBionic Beauty's new makeup brush set from Smashbox cosmetics! It’s their Holiday 2008 set. My friends knew I needed to expand my brush wardrobe and this did just the trick. My favorite so far is the Smudger brush. It works great for smudging eyeliner, mineral shadows and applying precise regular eyeshadows. (Click the photo for a bigger version.)


And then a very adorable set of mini Lip Tints from Bobbi Brown. My sister knew I was a huge fan of theirs after getting some of their lip glosses this year, so she increased my collection. These Lip Tints also have SPF 15 so I can’t wait to sport them on the beach this summer! Colors are Cherry Tint, Tea Tint, and Blossom Tint.

I love ’em! Thanks Sis!

So, did you get anything beauty related for the holidays???

Nice haul!!! 🙂 The brush set looks really nice, and the lip tints are lovely. I got some awesome MAC makeup for Christmas: an eyeshadow called Newly Minted (green, natch), Plush Lash mascara, and a lipstick called Diva which is a dark red-plum-brown color. 🙂

I got the Gwen Stefani Lamb perfume that came with the perfume, a rollon glass tube which was really cool and the matching lotion. I really like this perfume and I don’t have any complaints. I just wish I could find fragrance that I would make me say, “I LOVE this!” The last perfume that made me say I love it was Ralph Lauren Romance.
What about you Jami? Do you have any favorites perfumes to suggest? Maybe you could do review one day on the ones that seem to be the best sellers or something.
Glad you had a Merry Christmas! Kristi
PS> I bought my sister in law the Daisy perfume by Marc Jacobs and it smelled pretty good too.

Sara, Diva sounds like a gorgeous lipstick!! Would you believe that I have no MAC makeup? I *know* crazy, right?

Kristi, I’ve heard good things about Lamb, but have smelled it yet. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Michael Kors’ Very Pretty. It’s a limited edition fragrance, but it is my ABSOLUTE favorite in forever. I like perfumes okay typically, but this perfume fits me! I got 2 bottles of it and only use it for special occasions or nights.
For daily use, I wear Bath and Body Works’ Tropical Coconut and Lime perfume or Curve’s Wave perfume. I tend to like beachy, fresh scents. Are you a fan of floral or more fresh scents or what?
