Giveaway Unboxing!

Hi, everyone!

I’m so excited because I received my giveaway prize from Gillian of Pretty Trippy. I truly love reading her blog, and I’m so grateful to have won so many awesome goodies!

I tried making an unboxing video, but it didn’t go super well, so we’re going to do a blog version. Let’s take a peek inside…


So organized! At the top there was a note and a surprise:


Part of what makes this giveaway prize special is how much collecting Gillian did! She included tons of skincare samples that I can’t wait to dig into. These weren’t included in her giveaway announcement, but another great surprise!




  • Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil
  • Shiseido Oil-Control 3-step Skincare
  • Lumene BB Cream in 02 Medium
  • L’Occitane Creme Precieuse

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
  • Per-fekt Skin Perfection Gel in Luminous (shade 2/5)
  • Colorescience Pro Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen in Medium

She also included a number of fragrance samples, which is perfect because perfumes can be a huge investment.

And now for some skin and body:



  • Sephora Instant Moisturizer (sample tube)
  • St. Tropez Instant Glow Body Lotion
  • Dr. Brandt Pores No More Cleanser
  • Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray (.5 oz bottle) – I was actually about to buy one of these next time I was at Sephora, so now I don’t have to!
  • Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Butter – I’ve tried this before and really like it!
  • Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil – What does that even mean? I’m still excited!

And one hair product:


  • It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin (full size, even though it says “sample”)

We know how much I’ve been loving primers lately… and now I have a few more!




  • Fresh Rose Freshface Primer (sample)
  • Your Best Friend Perfect Prep Face Primer – This one is yellow based, so I’m curious to see what that does!
  • Hourglass Mineral Primer Veil (sample) – YASS!
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion (.13 oz tube)

And now we’re getting into full-sized products with the face powders:

  • Lancome Transclucence Mattifying Silky Pressed Powder – This one has such luxurious packaging!
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 24-Hour Blush in Frisky – This is a shimmery shade, similar to NARS Orgasm, it seems
  • MAC Powder Blush in Taupe Shape – This could make a great contouring shade!

And some liquid face products:



  • Lumene Time Freeze CC Cream in Light
  • Buxom Divine Goddess Illuminizer (sample) – This looks beautiful! I can’t wait to break into this.

There were some eyeliners:

  • Mally Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner – OMG this liner is gorgeous!

Lots of eyeshadow:

  • NYX Eyeshadow in Deep Charcoal
  • Wet ‘n Wild Fergie Center Stage Collection – Desert Festival
  • Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette – I was SO EXCITED for this one! These shadows are absolutely beautiful, and it seems to have everything I’d need: a matte brow highlight, a matte light brown transition shade, a matte/satin dark brown for a natural liner or smoky eye, and a great range of shimmers! I’ve been wanting one of these Too Faced shadow palettes for so long, so this alone would have made me ecstatic.
