My addiction to makeup that boomed this year – all thanks to this blog –
is all too apparent for my relatives and BF to ignore. Meaning, it’s quite both easy and risky to shop for me. They know I’ll appreciate anything beauty-related but at the same time, it’s a risk because I may already have it. LOL!
Anyway, I honestly thought I outgrew gifts. I like buying and giving gifts more than receiving them, actually. But this year, my relatives seriously outdid themselves! Their gifts were amazing in all different levels. I received things I never knew I wanted. LOL!
Just a heads up, I took the photos below right after Noche Buena so do expect them to be slightly blurry and with poor lighting. Sorry! I was just so excited. 🙂
The famous – not to mention expensive, Shu Uemura lash curler from my tita. Oh dear me! I don’t have the heart to remove it from its box, still. Though I’m really curious why it’s super expensive. 🙂 On the right is a Lancome Eau de Parfum, Poeme, all the way from Saudi. Thanks, Pa! 🙂 He said my iPhone was his gift so I didn’t expect anything much from him for Christmas.
Clinique Skincare set from Tita Ninang in New York. I had all my purchases from the US shipped to her NY address so she knows just how much new makeup I have for Christmas. And obviously, I have more than enough to last me a couple of months. She already hinted me that unlike last year, she won’t be giving me any cosmetic products… instead, I received this! Exactly what I need. <3
Steve Madden Solangee Peep-Toe Pumps from my ever loving lola. Actually, tita ninang was also the one who bought this and named it from nanay. I super love it! I mean really, this 6″ heels right here is the definition of KILLER HEELS! <3 Plus, the neon strip at the back gives it the “serious in the front, part at the back” vibe. Thinking about wearing this to Krave’s event next year. 😉
And of course, BF wouldn’t let Christmas pass me by without getting atleast a tube of lipstick from MAC. Yey! Two shades to cross off my wish list: Rebel and Russian Red.
I also received a bag full of clothes, accessories and things like that but I wasn’t able to take pictures of all of them. The ones I showed here are my favorites. 🙂 I am really blessed to have this awesome group of people around me who not only accepts my fondness of all things beauty-relate but also tolerates it. Being around them this season is the best gift I got. The only thing missing would be my hardworking father.
Miss you, Pa! 🙂
Conclusion: My Relatives Know Me Too Well. Teehee! 😀
How about you? What did you get last Christmas?
I’m sure some of you received loads of makeup! Care to share?:)
