My Stila Goodies from the B-licious

When I started to blog, I was blogging for my "current" friends who may find some useful information. I never thought blogging could really move further to a higher level. Not only do I meet new people, but I meet new friends whom I share emails with and just brighten each other's day.

Blogging is my stress reliever. I never expected anything from anybody as just the fact that someone reads my blog and learn from it meant the world to me. But I guess life is really full of surprises!

The lovely B of Clumps of Mascara knew I've always wanted to try Stila products as you guys know, we don't have it here and the only Stila Product I have is the Stila Smudgepots in Black (I bought online) which I love so dearly. I have already accepted the fact that we don't have Stila so I gave up and never "lemm" for any of their products.

Boy! Just when I've given up, she sent me a wonderful package not 1 but loads of Stila goodies!!! I got this early morning before I left for the HK trip! And B, you do know that I got so excited I temporarily had an amnesia and forgot about my flight! LOL

Here's what greeted me early morning

Aren't they just PRETTY!!!!???!!!

1. Stila Cheek Color in Soar
2. Stila Illuminating Finishing Powder in Bronze
3. Stila Illuminating tinted moisturizer Shade 01
4. Stila Color Push-Ups All Over Color in Rose Flash
5. Stila Lip Glaze in raspberry (FINALLY!!!!)
6. Aaawww she called me Nikkilicious....
(my dear guest writer Beatrilicious, just lend the title to me ok? just this once! lol)

And here are the swatches for you gals who are interested on how it looks like

Looks like a MAC mineralized powder,
the color is just "stare-worthy" and super pigmented

The famous all over color swiped on my hand 2x

Cheek Color swatch
Very matte, can be used as eyeshadow as well

Check out the size of the Illuminating tinted moisturizer
with SPF 15

Can I just say, the color is just so ME?

Here's how it looks like when scattered on my hand
It doesn't show up so much color but it has a hint of glow

B promised me some of the products above would let me die and go to heaven (I hope not so soon) and she was right! It's like I got a personal shopper who knows my skin color and texture who shopped for me and send them all to me without any effort on my side. B, you made my days, months and years! Thanks for these goodies. I did receive them in a short period of time before the year 2009! LOL

*dances with joy*

Really, I must be doing something good to deserve all these! :D
Thank you so much B and to the everyone (you know who you are) who sends me stuffs and offer their help to buy me stuffs because they knew how much I would love to try on products and not being able to find them here. Really, its not about the product but it is the effort of making me happy and helping me! I do appreciate it!!! I am being sentimental...but to everyone who gives sweet comments everyday too?....THANK YOU and BIG HUGS!!!

Can you just believe with only 2 hours of sleep, I am still awake at 10pm?
I guess blogging keeps me awake!
