Care Package From Italy!


I got an unexpected package today from the lovely Italian beauty Giada from nautical but nice. Thank you Giada! 


Here are the goodies. I have one Barry M polish, but I've never tired any of the makeup. I love MUA, and this lipgloss is gorgeous folks! I have several items from N.o7 and Accessorize, so these are help editions to my collection. Never tired Alverde (I believe this is a german brand, I'm sure Buggsiebee will let us know :P), and I'm looking forward to playing with this palette. Also, I've never self-tanned before, since I tan easily in the Summer...heck, I even tan indoors :P 

Giada, thank you again for awesome surprise :D Keep an eye out for a little (big) something from the land of the rising sun :DD

Have you ever tired any of these brands before? if so, what are your favorite items?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

  1. How thoughtful of her to send you such a nice package! I wish I tanned as easily as you.. My friend just gave me a few tan towels to try, but it's already so late in August, I'm wondering if there's even a point to use them this summer? Anyway great stuff, let us know how the Barry M. gloss is, I've only ever owned a polish from them as well :)

  2. Buggsiebee here,... reporting for duty:)
    Alverde is a house brand of the 'dm' drug store chain here in Germany. There are dm drug stores all over Europe but I don't know if all stock Alverde.
    It's stamped as 'na-true' which means that it is a natural cosmetic brand. Although I don't know exact the percentages required, you can be relatively sure that you're not going to find any/ many funky preseratives, mineral oils, PEG derivatives, synthetic colorants & perfumes or animal extracts in your products. The Alverde prices are fair when one considers what other natural cosmetics cost & although I haven't tried their cosmetic line, I do use their bath products. Love their soap:)
    I love St. Tropez self tanner too. Best product I've found for my whitey legs after the looooong North European Winter.
