Prizes from Miss Yaya

I got prizes from Miss Yaya yesterday. I was gonna post this yesterday but ran out of time. I won these prizes for entering 2 of her contests: the do's & don'ts in beauty contest and the doll contest. Here are pics of all the goodies from the box.

R: participation prize for the doll contest
I haven't tried everything out yet, but I like the stuff I tried/swatched. My fave item from the bunch is the Beauty Rush by Victoria Secret lipgloss in Peach Buzz, which has little sparkles in it. It's not a colour that I would usually pick up since I usually stick to brown shades, but I love it. It's thick & you can def feel it when it's on your lips, but it's not sticky. It also smells just like peaches & it's a bit strong (so much that my mum could smell it once I put it on & went downstairs to see her). I love, love, love it.

I really liked the other lipgloss as well. It's the one with the lightning bolt on the lid. I forgot the brand/shade, but it's a pink shade that smells like coconut. There was also an Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eye pencil in Plum. I swatched it & it goes on very smoothly + the colour is gorgeous. Can't wait to use the eye pencil. The last thing that I swatched is the Too Faced pink leopard bronzing powder. At first I didn't feel like using it because it was so pretty when I opened it, but I actually have it on right now. I might add a pic to show you how it looks like later on.

So, I like everything that I tried so far. Thanks Yaya :)

Opening packages is so exciting, especially at times when you don't know what's going to be in there. & for me, I've never really tried expensive brands. Like I've mentioned before, I recently started loving makeup as much as I do right now, so I was experimenting with drugstore brands so far. By entering amazing contests I have had the chance to experiment with my looks & bring out the creative side of me that doesn't show that much during the school year when I'm mostly behind books. It has also allowed me to try out some brands that I had heard of a lot but had never had the chance to try or just couldn't/didn't want to spend that much money on.

I've also had the chance to try out products by Physicians Formula. Here are the recent products that were added to my makeup collection: concealer twins, eye definer felt-tip eye marker, & an organic wear lipstick.

I now have a total of 5 Physicians Formula products in my collection & I really dislike one of the products & I think it's a real shame considering how expensive Physicians Formula products are. I'm thinking of doing a review on them sometime soon. But till then I'm going to enjoy the new makeup that I received.
