I won Benefit's Sunday Funday and Scene Queen makeup kits from a contest held by Janine from beautygeeks and Megan PR for Benefit earlier this month! I was super duper excited because I was looking forward to try out Coralista, Hoolah, High Beam, and Benetint :) I still need to try out their Bright Eyes eye brightening stick! Upcoming post about these two beauty kits soon :)
I received this through a beauty forum I'm part of and unfortunately they now charge shipping for the gifts ($16 USD) with no choice of what you will receive (it's a complete surprise but usually they are super awesome gifts!). I opened the package and my jaw dropped when I saw Revitalash! I've always wanted to try out a lash growth serum, I've only tried the L'oreal Lash Boosting Serum which does a great job of conditioning my lashes but does not lengthen. Revitalsh 4.1 mL (which lasts 6 months) runs at about $150 USD on their main website but I'm sure you can find them for cheaper online/in other countries. I debated for a few days if I wanted to try it out because of the negative side effects and so on. But after reading a kazillion reviews, I settled on trying it out for a couple of days and if anything goes wrong I'd definitely stop using it. I've been using it for about a week now, there are no issues yet, and my lashes are LOVING me! They haven't lengthened yet, it's suppose to take at least 6 weeks but it seems as though my lashes are much more healthier and perkier? Haha. I'll do a full review of this after I've used it for longer :) She also sent me a UD lipgloss, which had a pretty Twilight-esque lid :D
Last but not least, I picked up a few more books yesterday during my break (it's horrible to work at a mall btw) in preparation for my long commute on the bus when I move out to start my new program in Toronto. I'm currently reading The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell which is a story on Carrie Bradshaw before Sex and the City. I love the original cardboard finish behind the book jackets, I always take a peak at them. And to my surprise, this book had a pretty embossed CB all around the book, like a designer diary :P Love it!
I also went to a Lindt chocolate outlet factory that just opened in Cambridge and it was like HEAVEN! Discounted chocolate galore :) The chocolates expire in 2 months but what girl can't finish a box of chocolates within 2 months? :P MMmmm :)
