I Wonder: "Too Pretty To Use?"

Happy Saturday AMW Friends!
Today, I will out for almost a whole day and I wish I can make it without feeling nauseous or tired!  Wish me luck! 

Before I leave home, here's a thought that has been bugging me for months!  *laughs*  I am the type of consumer who wouldn't mind using pretty looking cosmetics, I don't get attached to them and I'm one practical person who would always say: "What's the point of buying and not using?"  

Today, I am eating my words!  When dear blogger friend Hedley sent me a gift "just because" she's sweet and she wants to brighten up my day, she gifted me Guerlain Ombre Eclat 4 Shades eyeshadow palette because it reminded her of me! 

Housed in a gorgeous, shiny, black packaging.
Judging by my nail art, the photo was taken November last year!  *hides in embarrassment*  And you guessed it right, it's still sitting pretty on my makeup storage and mind you, I do look at it once in awhile and just admire the gorgeous shades and patterns.  (I just realized I'm a freak!  lol) 

Sorry Hedley, I tried, so many times on picking the sponge applicator and mumble a silent apology for ruining such beautiful creature, but I always ended up a loser!  

Can you blame me?

So today, I WONDER:
"Have you been keeping a particular makeup just because it's too pretty to use?"  

As for me, this happened to me ONCE and it was this particular Guerlain 4 Shades Eyeshadow Palette.  The reason must be because it was a gift to me plus the super pretty and unique patterns!  Please, don't give me a sermon!!!  Promise, I will use it before the year ends!
