Garden of Wisdom Haul 2nd Order


Today I was sooo happy when I made a visit to the mailbox and found the box sent from Markey Martin !!! woo hoo !!! my Garden of Wisdom stuffs have arrived ! I ALMOST ran back to my room and open the package:

What I got:
1. GoW Cleansing Oil
2. Melissa Lemonbalm Hydrosol
3. Rosacea Serum
4. Immortelle HA Serum 1%
5. Chardonnay Seed Oil
6. GoW Manuka Honey 15+
7. One small dropper (for my oil)

and Markey threw in free sample of GoW Oats, Milk, and Honey Cleanser :D hurray!

My New Love

hehe I dunno why I'm so effin' excited about these, I guess because I am purging at the moment and have been waiting for a good trustworthy natural treatment for my skin, so these stuffs are like a heaven-sent! :)

Later on I went to Don Quijote to check on some stuffs and ended up buying two more NYX Lipstick (I'm so bad), the color is Hermes and Chambord. When I compare the two, they look so similar, only Hermes is a matte color. But when I swatch them, I totally see the difference :) The reason I bought these two is because when I do swatches yesterday I realized I have mostly pink lipstick and I thought one or two more nude/brown color wouldn't hurt, now would it?

... LOL yeah I'm just making excuses to shop! so excuse me, ladies...

The Brown Sisters

The Swatches



Here's some lip-test :D

I paired it with Cherry Culture Lipgloss for a kick :)

I paired Chambord with Kirkland Roseberry, I love the sparkle

Note: I didn't apply chapstick or anything prior so excuse the slightly dry lips :)
