An Exciting Package From My Favourite YouTuber: MissGlamorazzi

So it is a total understatement to say that I was excited when the post arrived today. I have been eagerly awaiting a little package from my friend Ingrid (aka MissGlamorazzi on YouTube) for a couple of weeks and when it arrived this morning, i was nothing short of speechless.

I have never been one of those people who is totally trusting of the internet. I always used to think of the negative things that could happen from putting yourself 'out there' and making videos for all of the world to see. However, 'meeting' Ingrid changed my perspective hugely. I realised that you can meet real, genuine friends on YouTube. Even though we've never met I count her amongst my friends, which is quite an odd concept when you think about it. If you watch my videos on YouTube you may already know that Ingrid and I have exchanged a few packages over the last few months, but her latest one really knocked me for six.

Having popped a few little Barry M goodies in the post to her a few weeks ago I was gobsmacked (and hugely embarrassed!) to open my little package today to see that she had splashed out big time, and seemed to have purchased an entire NARS counter!

OK, so by now you're probably thinking 'skip to the end' so I'll do just that. Below you will see a little run down of all the fabulous goodies she so kindly sent me. I'm totally unfamiliar with NARS, while it is Ingrid's all time favourite brand, so I really can't wait to try all these gorgeous products.

So without further ado... Prepare to be in awe...

It being such a gloriously sunny day today, I thought it was only appropriate to take to the great outdoors for a little photoshoot!

Starting with non-NARS, I was thrilled to receive a full size of the fabulous Stila Major Lash mascara that Ingrid had previously sent me a sample of, but I was unable to find in the UK!

I was also really exited about these two nail polishes: OPI's 'Samoan Sand', the perfect nude colour and OPI for Sephora's 'Mermaid to Order', a beautiful metallic blue-green (Just like a mermaids tail obviously!)
If you are familiar with Ingrid's video's you may also recognise the gorgeous knuckleduster-style three stone ring that she wears a lot. I was so excited to see that she'd also sent me the same ring (yey, we can match!) and that it is even more pretty in real life than on film.

I don't think that's my hands 'best angle', but the ring is gorgeous!

So moving on to the NARS products. I'm not really sure there are words to describe how generous she was, so I'll leave it to the photos!

(L-R) Blush in Deep Throat, Eyeshadow in Lola Lola, Eyeshadow in Ashes to Ashes, Sheer Glow Foundation in Mont Blanc, Lipstick in Roman Holiday, Lip Gloss/Stain Duo in Turkish Delight/Sayonara.

So Firstly... The Foundation.
Having heard so much about the NARS Sheer Glow foundation on YouTube i've been itching (not literally) to try this (FYI this was the only thing Ingrid was meant to be sending me - That's how naughty she is with presents - too generous!)

Lip product swatches (Clockwise): Roman Holiday, Sayonara, Turkish Delight

I was very surprised by the texture of the Lipstick actually, it's very moisturising and the colour is quite sheer, so although it's bright it is very wearable and pretty!

Powder Swatches (top to bottom): Deep Throat, Lola Lola, Ashes to Ashes.

All of these are so beautiful! I'm especially excited about deep throat which is a gorgeous pale pink with a teeny tiny bit of golden shimmer.

And of course, Woof couldn't wait to get in on the camera action. She has a thing about the camera and make up so she was understandably very excited and kept trying to steal the packaging!

So this has been my longest blog post to date - I hope you made it to the end! I really cannot say thank you enough times to Ingrid for her very generous gift but I can say that she's in deep trouble for going so overboard yet again, and that her punishment will be another package from me winging its way to her very soon!

If you'd like to a see a review of any of these products then do let me know. If you haven't already watched and subscribed to Ingrid's videos on YouTube, then go and check them out. Seriously, this girl is going to be HUGE! She's so sweet, informative and a genuine pleasure to watch (oh and she's gorgeous too, just to top it all off!)

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Fleur xx
