:(

I ended up buying the safari train case from Sephora (the first one in my previous post). It's a standard mini sized train case and I really liked it, but I just got home and I realized that my MAC palettes don't fit in there. Booooooooo!!! So now I'm sad and am forced to return it and get a larger case :( Sephora had the large black case, but I decided to get this mini one because Amina was right that the larger one is kinda heavy (and it was empty! imagine how heavy it would be if it was filled...) and I didn't want to lug something so heavy around... But, thanks to Vivian, there's still hope! I can possibly order one from Crown Brushes. Theirs are dirt cheap and shipping is only $7... I most likely won't get it in time for my trip of course, but maybe I'll order one just to have one for future traveling...





I also FINALLY got UDPP! I couldn't justify spending so much money on a primer before, but then I thought what the hell since I've been beating around the bush and basically buying every OTHER primer there is that's cheaper lol... and now when I add it all up, I probably should've just bought UDPP in the beginning! and I signed up for their Beauty Insider card which is free so for every $100 you spend, you get a free gift... So I picked the Philosophy body butter :)



I also got a super cute giraffe print traveling bag. It was so cute that I couldn't resist!!! I've always wanted a bag like this, but I could never find one that I liked.





It was also my friend's birthday so she got a hotel room for the night and we went swimming in very windy weather LOL. it was fun though! I ended up getting her the pop up Sephora safari brushes and a Pop Beauty palette in brown eyes that I also got my other friend as a present a while ago and I totally forgot about it!! hahaha so my other friend was like HEY, that's what you got me before!!! LOL I completely forgot. Hey, it's a good palette though! I might even end up getting one for myself! I think I almost got my boyfriend's mom that palette too for Mother's Day! haha.

omg i wanted that black case too-but it IS so heavy, and the inside didn't look big enough to me- i still love how it looks on the outside though-so sleek! i have been beating around the bush with UDPP too lol-i'll buy it one day!

i like the giraffe bag! it's so cute :)

my bf bought me a MAC train case so i could stop keeping all my makeup in empty shoeboxes (LOL).. but it's not enough for everything i have :( i think i need a super huuuge one.. if only they weren't so exxy!

Connie said...

that's a beautiful traincase! I'm sorry it doesn't fit your palettes though. and the giraffe print case is adorable.

I still can't bring myself to spend on UDPP just yet. I have so many other eye bases (latest one being MAC paints and paint pots) but I still won't spend on a UDPP. lol. I'm waiting for it to come out in a new packaging. Don't forget to cut your UDPP open once you can't dig no more!

Amina said...

hey..
yes, I wonder if MAC palettes can fit in the big one...
i still have to call up MAC pro to purchase a palette...
i haven't tried UDPP either because i am hesitant to spend so much on a primer...but it is holy grail of every beauty blogger

i love being a beauty insider..free deluxe samples and birthday gift...
looove the giraffe bag:)

Erica said...

lol I still haven't bought a UDPP for myself lol I just dont wanna splurge on something I don't really need yet... and I'm okay with using the Loreal HIP paints even tho I crease in the inner corners like about 6-8 hrs or so later. lol I have the Sephora Insider card too! lol but I still haven't used $100 at Sephora yet to get the free gift lol What kinda gift can you choose after you spent the $100? I'm curious lol

Diane said...

hey,
with practice you'll do very well and not burn yourself! Anyway, I'm loving that giraffe makeup bag! AHHH! I went to the zoo Saturday and just fell in love with them.

Alyssa said...

Look at that smile! I'm telling you you can light up the room when you enter. :P That's the first thing I noticed from that picture. You're cute smile. :)

It's so true we buy other stuff to save money, but at the end it's easier just buying the expensive product!

Erica said...

lol true =] I don't think I'll be able to earn my free gift soon lol i'm usually buying stuff from drugstores or department stores and sometimes online lol

fuzkittie said...

That does look kinda small... well my search for the perfect makeup organizer will continue on...

I want that giraffe bag soooo much, but damn I have too many small cosmetics bags! XD Great you got it though, it's so cute~

Stephy said...

omg that sux!!! MAC palettes never look so big and the train case never looks so small!

i tried the two faced shadow insurance for the first time this weekend, but honestly i think baby pink milky base kinda did the same thing. i still have yet to open my trial bottle of UDPP so i'll see how that compares to my other bases! :)

awww what a bummer! the MAC palettes don't fit!! how dare they! well at least that cute giraffe bag compensated for it.

eBeautyBlog said...

the train case looks nice and the traveling bag is super cute. Did you mean that crownbrush has traincases? I checked the website and they only have brushes.

Btw, your picture is very cute. You should more pictures of your cutie face for us :)
