Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hr Cream Gel Shadow

Hello, my Pretties!

Happy Leap Year!  Did you do anything special to commemorate this only-comes-every-four-years holiday?  Not I.

But, I do have my Valentine's Day gift to share with you.  I know, 15 days late.  Oops.  That's been me lately, constantly running behind schedule.  But better late than never, I suppose.

I love you, too, baby.

It's so funny that the sweet-tart always puts my gifts in these little "Chinese food" containers.  I love them though.  When he handed this little box over, I had no clue what was in it.  But I knew what I wanted to be inside!

And when I opened it, what I wanted to be inside was NOT inside.  I couldn't help but laugh.  For weeks I had been telling him I wanted the Maybelline Color Tattoos.  He got the Maybelline part right.  Instead, there were 10 Maybelline Eye Studio Color Pearls Marbleized Eyeshadows inside.  They were nice but not what I wanted.

I had to tell him.  I said, "you got the wrong ones!"  He said, "you said the marbleized ones.  And I got all 10."  I said, "not marbleized, MAYBELLINE!"  He said, "oooohhh."  I thought it was funny.  It was the thought that counted, right?  He felt so bad and he told me that he would return them and get the right ones the next day.

I felt bad making him return them.  I even went on Twitter the next day to ask for advice.  Should I keep the gift he gave me or exchange it for something I really wanted?  You all said to exchanged them.  After all, he was on the right track.

So, the next day I finally got something I really wanted!  As usual, I'm always behind all the rage but who cares?  I got them anyway!

In this set, I really wanted Pomegranate Punk and Tough as Taupe.  A month ago I was going to purchase these two but I decided against it.  If I couldn't buy the entire collection at once, I'd wait until I could.  That's really a bad idea!

But I just wanted to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to my wonderful sweet-tart who is always so thoughtful and giving.  He will do anything to make me happy.  I adore him.  He is my favorite person in the world.  I think we have a wonderful love story...

Luv & Luk,

    1. LOL, the sweet-tart is beginning to prove me wrong. He is more SWEET than tart these days. LOL. I might have to upgrade him to sweetheart LOL :) I appreciated all he went through. He even had to go to different stores to get them all! Awwww. I have only used Too Cool for now but I'm anxious to try out the rest. Especially Tough as Taupe and Pomegrante Punk!
