Eeeeep, I think i'm one of the few which doesn't like the packaging, its horrid :( Its just kinda bright, i loved LoL packaging, but on the eyeshadows and powder products this is probably going to be a no-no. I was thinking of maybe getting the creme-bronzer, but its a might. I'm more interested in the beautiful light shades of lipstick and glasses. <3

    CANNOT wait for the Petticoat and Stereo rose to be repromoted and the other mineralize goodies! :D

    Love your blog so much, your so beautiful!

    Thank you so much for your kind words... i'm really flattered! :D

  37. aaahhh!!

    'Maybe one lipstick and lipglass each for collection's sake! :D'
