Honeycat Cosmetics Surprise Gift

Hello Gorgeous!
Today when I went to go get my mail for the day I noticed that I had a package from Honeycat Cosmetics. I didn't remember ordering anything lately. So I was really anxious to get this packaged opened. Once I opened it I saw this pretty pink box!

On the box was a note card with a really touching message that read: "Someone who loves you says, 'Don't you dare give up! Things will get better.'" That really touched my heart. Lately I have been having some hard times with family issues and sometimes it feels like those issues are never going to get better. This card and gift just completely made my whole weekend! I am still unsure who sent it, if it was from someone I know or from Honeycat Cosmetics but to whoever it was that sent this to me thank you, thank you so much. This means so much to me!

This gift was packaged so nicely as you can see in the above pictures. I was sent two items, one which is a white and pink wash cloth with the Honeycat Cosmetics logo on it. It is just so cute! The other item I was sent is Honeycat Cosmetics Sweet Potato Pie Bubble Stuff. It is a really big bottle! Definitely not a sample size. This bubble bath stuff is said to be extra rich, super bubble, sweet potato pie scented. This bubble bath is loaded aloe, shea butter & macadamia nut oil. A purrfect recipe happy skin. I can not wait to try this stuff out. It smells so delicious! Once again I just want to say thank you so much for this gift, it really made my weekend just that much more special!

Until next time, take care <3

Hopefully everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday for those that do celebrate and for those that don't I hope that you dolls had a great weekend as well! Now enough rambling lets jump into what I was sent this month:

Although this is a dark color eyeshadow, navy is a classic color for spring. This shade goes with all neutrals, white, black, and or brown shades. Navy is also great for a smokey eye! Starlooks retail value is $12.00

- Starlooks Vanilla Lip Sugar
This Lip Sugar is a Starbox Exclusive at least for now! This lip scrub expertly exfoliates chapped lips in need of a little papering. Simply rub a tiny amount across parched lips to remove dry, dead skin cells, then tissue off. Lips that have been scrubbed with this Lip Sugar will take their favorite lipstick more beautifully and the lipstick will last much longer too!! Starlooks retail value $2.00

- Starlooks Lengthening Mascara
Starlooks Lengthening Mascara has a HUGE, fluffy, tree-shaped applicator that allows for no clumping, and is formulated with our rich, black kohl pigment to allow the blackest, smoothest lashes possible. This mascara creates the Starlooks Signature, feather-like lash, lengthened to the fullest. Expect longer lashes, and (with two or 3 coats) the base of the lash will thicken by 50%! Starlooks retail value is $15.00

- Starlooks Lipstick in Flutter
This gorgeous, full coverage, frost lipstick emanates a hue of orange at the first glance but on the lips it translates to a rusty, golden, bronze-red. Perfect for adding color on the lip but not too bright for the spring. A perfect rust lip goes perfect with khaki, white, black, navy, and browns. Starlooks retail value is $11.00
