Gifts from The Shopping Queen


A little while ago, the very lovely Jen, who runs The Shopping Queen (you can check out her amazing blog here!) announced on her blog she'd be giving a few belated Christmas gifts to a select few of her loyal readers! Jen named me as one of those few, and said she'd like to send me a little something for Christmas! How sweet is she!

I received the package from Jen today, so it was a nice belated/early birthday present for me! When I saw the size of the package, I was shocked she included so much! She was so generous!


Essence Cherry Blossom Girl Blush in Asian Sensation

Jen knows me so well! Due to many twitter discussions (if you don't follow me on twitter already, you can do so here) we spoke about the beautiful Cherry Blossom Girl range, and how I'd be missing out due to my spending ban! (You can read about my ban here!) She very generously included the blush, which is something I've had my eye on! It's so beautiful, and I can't wait to begin using it! Just a million more photos of it's prettiness first, though!

Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Velvet

If I'm not mistaken, this is one of the new flavours! It sounds delicious! Truth be told, I've only ever tried one other Baby Lips in my life! My other Baby Lips is at work, and I always regret not bringing it home with me! Now I don't have to, I have two!


Australis Nail Colour

What a gorgeous colour! I'm loving the pink theme she's chosen, and as you can probably tell from my blog layout, I'm quite a pink person, so this has suited me well! I have only a select few Australis nail polishes, and love them all to bits, so this will be a wonderful addition to my collection!


Essence Cherry Blossom Girl Lipstick Pencil in Cherry Cherry Girl

I'm so thankful for Jen to include this! I know she had her doubts about this product, as a lot of the blogging world did, as apparently it's not great. I remember Jen mentioning feeling so bad about it she was even considering returning the products as she didn't want to include a bad product in her gifts and giveaways. But, I'm happy she did include it because even if it's a bad product, I'd still like to try it out and do my best to make it work! The colour is stunning, so hopefully I can work it into my collection somehow!


Essence Lipstick in All About Cupcake

Oh how cute is this colour! I love Essence packaging! My local Essence stand is always in ruins, and is still showcasing the Snow White collection - empty - so I never even got a chance to test out the Cherry Blossom Girl collection anyway. They never have lipsticks either, so I'm thrilled to get this! The colour is so me, as well, so I'm so happy with it!

--

Firstly I'd like to say an absolute giant thank you to Jen! If you haven't already checked out her blog, make sure you do so! She's an excellent writer and always has amazing hauls, so if you want to be jealous, her blog is definitely worth a stalking! 
(Stalk Jen here!)

She's also got some great information about parcel forwarding services up on her blog, which has actually helped me out in choosing which one I'm going to be going with as soon as my pesky spending ban is over!

Secondly, she chose amazing goodies! I'm absolutely thrilled with everything she included! The package came on a fairly hot day, as you can imagine, so practically everything was popped straight into the fridge before I could take photos! Again - thank you Jen! Be sure to look out for reviews soon!


Have you tried any of these products before? If so, what did you think?
