Hi guys! As if my birthday couldn’t get any better, yesterday night after I got home I discovered a birthday package from Jess of Ohh… Pretty! all the way from Austria! Jess is such a sweetheart – she didn’t even know exactly when my birthday was and had to send the package twice because the post returned the package to her the first time LOL! But amazingly it came exactly on my birthday!

Jess, I was truly amazed by your generosity! Jess sent me yummy caramel and pineapple candies, a bunch of samples, the Dr. Brandt Pores No More primer which I had expressed an interest in when it was on her blogsale & my first YSL!! She sent me the eyeshadow duo #23. She actually wrote that she originally bought me the RV in #9 Caress Pink but then remembered I can’t wear chemical SPFs so she went back to exchange it for something I could wear. ♥ She wrapped everything so beautifully too!!

And so of course, here is my first FOTD with the YSL duo! I hope I did it justice – I am so happy with it because I’ve been looking for a good neutral duo for the longest time and I think this might just be the perfect color combination for me! The pink is peachy enough that it’s eye brightening but doesn’t make me look a little sick and the brown is really lovely, almost taupe. The finish is absolutely perfect too. Matte, but with little subtle sparkles so it’s not too flat or uninteresting. Thank you, Jess! ♥

I’m also wearing the Shu Uemura blush and Chanel lipstick I bought yesterday. I think they really go well together – I’m finally able to do a sweet peachy FOTD like Jess is so good at! :D
THANK YOU SO MUCH JESS!!! ♥ ♥ ♥
