    My MAC gift box the Makeup Artists gave me the day my fiance proposed to me. It was the best because it was so unexpected. And everything in the box was chosen to match my skin tone. *lol*

  8. One time a boyfriend got me a really nice pink traincase, I still use it even though we broke up lol!

    For our wedding anniversary a couple years ago, my husband and I were heading out of town to a bed and breakfast but before we left town he surprised me by taking me to the MAC counter for an anniversary shopping spree. It was a very fun surprise. He’s a keeper. ;)

    My beloved beau knows that I am obsessed over makeup and I love limited editions and fruity fragrances so one day when I wasn’t able to see him he came by my house and dropped off something for my cousins. When I looked inside the bag there were the things for my cousins and in the middle a little box wrapped in pink wrapping paper and I opened it only to find Miss boucheron limited edition charm (Which is like $120 CAD for .10oz or something like that I never want to use it =P) and it’s the best not because of what it is because I really didn’t expect it, he picked it out based on what he knew about me, it was the first presant he had gotten me and he was so sneeky about it!

    4 Christmases ago, the love of my life, my hubs got me this whole brush set from MAC. It was one of those limited edition collection containing the 6 most essential brushes! He had no clue whatsoever and sorta sparked my love for MAC and its makeup brushes. Before that, i rellied heavily on my fingers and disposible sponge tips for blending.

    Today, i cannot imagine life without my 239, 266, 217 and 194!!!

    OOHHH that’s a hard one!

    It’s between the MAC train case my fiance surprised me with one birthday filled with a whole bunch of goodies from the Pro store. He’s a big supporter of the make-up obsession!

    And most recently my mom got me a full spa day package and the yearly membership at Burke Williams.

    I LOVE THEM BOTH!

    I received from one of my closest friends the warm liploss box from last years x-mas edition. I was absolutely surprised and touched, because I did’t mention anything, she just saw it, bought it and hat a birthday and christmas present.

    My T3 bespoke labs evolution hair dryer and wet to dry flat iron.
