The first thing I got was this Skin 79 BB Cream in green. I have somehow never noticed this version before. But someone posted about it on reddit and included swatches. I was amazed at how light it is. Definitely comparable to the Missha #13. I will definitely test it out and do a review.

My boyfriend was nice enough to get me the new Elie Saab perfume "L'eau Couture". We actually got a sample of this when we were walking through Neiman Marcus and we really enjoyed it. I think it's only currently available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. I have not seen it at other department stores. Anyway, it's a very nice floral, almond, vanilla, sweet scent. Nothing too strong. Definitely a winner.
And at long last, my Hautelook order of Tarina Tarantino arrived. I was never really drawn to this brand, but I read fantastic reviews on Temptalia, so I had to try it out.
I have to say. I hate her packaging. It looks tacky and is hard to open. But the Dollskin Cheek Blush Palette comes with four blush shades: Candy Cameo, Feather, Carved Rose and Parasol. 3 of those shades are supposed to be shimmery, but I can't see any glitter/shimmer when I swatch them. I'll have to put these to the test some more. Also, on the Tarina Tarantino website this palette is $45, on Hautelook it was $24. If these blushes are any good, it will turn out to be a great deal.
I also got the Jewel Shadow Palette in Magical. It's actually a very interesting range of shades. At first I though it was going to be a neutral palette, but it's more rosy/purple. On her website, it's $32. On Hautelook it was $15. And this palette is impossible to open. Like actually. I had to get a hair pin. ugh.
I really like the 3 darker shades. The white is pretty blah.
And here's a picture of my birthday dinner. It was delicious. Tofu power. I also didn't know what I was supposed to do with the plate of oranges they brought me.
