Okay, here's something I want to share with you all. If I ever have to call someone my makeup guru, it would be none other than the lovely Marlena of makeupgeek.com . Her videos were the first, and for a long time, the only makeup videos, I ever used to watch, just because her techniques were so simple and easy to follow and she was so creative with colors. Even today, if I ever want to watch any makeup videos, I tune in to her channel first. I can't put into words how much I adore her, for almost everything, her makeup sense, her fashion style, and for just being the kind and gentle soul that she is.
Anyway, this post is actually about Marlena and her makeupgeek team's effort to bring about quality makeup products at affordable prices and thus the gorgeous makeupgeek line of products from which I happened to pick a few pieces. I have been wanting to get these for the longest time ever, but my two most sought after products, that is the Liquid Gold Pigment and the Gel Liner in Electric were never in stock together every time I checked the site. And one fine day, I just got lucky and the Haul happened.
I placed my order on the 13th of August, and I received it today, i.e. exactly in 8 days. I got email confirmations when my order was placed and when it was shipped out. Honestly, I really wasn't expecting it any sooner than at least 2 weeks from the order date, more so since I had chosen USPS First Class Package International shipping. My order total was roughly about $41 and I paid approximately $9 for shipping, which is quite reasonable in my opinion.
My order came securely packaged in this sturdy, yet lightweight cardboard box.
I would've squealed with happiness , however, I tried to retain my composure and quietly started taking pictures as I opened the box very carefully ( A blogger's got to do her job! ;) ) Inside the box was this securely bubble wrapped "bundle of joy", in a sea of fluffy foamy-foam (I don't know what you call those things! ) and I finally got to see my colorful and pretty tiny makeup boxes carrying my treasure all the way across the seven seas :)
And a signature and smiley from the people from MUG's Team who packaged my parcel....I love the personalization part..Its like a warm hug from a stranger :)
And here are the three gorgeous eyeshadows that I ordered:
- Mango Tango
Next up, I ordered for these two pigments :
- Liquid Gold
My goodness!! you girls wait till I swatch them for you ;) To say the least, I'm bowled over!!
And finally, the eyeliner shade that has haunted me forever!!
The makeupgeek Gel Liner in Electric
I can't wait to create some makeup looks with these..
