Its Christmas!

Because of my long break from the internet (the move) before the year ended, I didn't have the chance to post Christmas Hauls - well presents. I didn't really get to shop during the Christmas season because I wanted to avoid the big crowds and when the holidays were over, guess what? I lost money. Not a month after that my cat, Bob is now confined at the vet. Hurrah! I honestly cant wait for January to be over, maybe February will be better haha.

Bob, a few days before he got sick. I hope I can get him
tomorrow. He's been at the vet for almost a week :/

Anyhoo, here are some of the things I got for Christmas from my Mom :)

Benefit Silky Powder Eye Shadow in Low Profile
Lip Gloss in Zone out and Friends in High Places

I've always loved Benefit products because of their packaging, but after purchasing Realness of Concealness Set and getting disappointed I stopped buying anything from them. I always do get tempted because of the cool packaging haha. These 2 products are suprisingly good though =)

Benefit Silky Powder Eye Shadow in Low Profile

Why you Should buy it:
- As it is called (Silky Powder), the texture is amazing. Not only is it not chalky, every swipe is very pigmented and applies and blends softly into the skin
- Id say its very similar to M.A.C. Vanilla which is a good highlighter.

What you Should Consider;
- It comes in a screw top container. I dont know how to depot this haha. I prefer having shadows in palettes instead of carrying millions of pots.

Lip Gloss in Zone out and Friends in High Places

Why you should buy it:
- I love the smell. I cant really tell what it its, but it has a faint fresh smell.
- The shades are gorgeous
- The glitters are not overpowering, they just add a bit more shine.
- Its almost comparable to M.A.C.'s lipglass in terms of texture and consistency (a bit thick and sticky - which I oddly like)

What you should consider:
- I think mine came as a GWP (Gift with purchase) or something, you cant get the duos and have to buy them individually
- At $18 a pop, its a little too expensive for my current financial state haha

Thank you Krissy! =) I hope so too! He still needs surgery though, but I hope he doesnt get any kidney stones/crystals before I can afford to get it done.
