Look what the postman brought!

I'm excited, my Coastal Scents 88 Color Eye Shadow Palette came in the mail today. I had ordered it about 3 weeks ago, but remember the ash cloud slowed down the mail. I was afraid one of the shadows was gonna crack during shipping, but the package was carefully wrapped in bubble wrap, nothing cracked.
The whole palatte is very light-weight and portable.
Thats what it looks like from the outside
The shadows are about dime size and there are so many vibrant colors to chose from!
Most of the colors are matte, but some of them are shimmery. The colors are really pigmented. I have not tried them on my eyes yet, but I just dapped the color my with my fingertip and applied it to my arm. I can't wait to use it, but I'm actually on a "Make up" break. Trying to figure out where that rash on my face is coming from! But I'll probably be trying out the shadows next week, so excited, there are so many colors to chose from!
Here some swatches on my bare arm with no primer

But, the main reason for my excitement about the mailman was, the stroller +carseat for my niece that FINALLY arrived to Germany. I ordered it in the states and because of the size it took forever to get shipped, if I say forever I mean FOREVER! I was so scared it got lost. But luckily it came just in time, the baby is 3 weeks now and the weather is getting better.
I had ordered it as a gift from the hubby and I, but let my sister pick it out, since they only had neutral colors at the PX and my sister wanted a pink one, we had to order it. (And I find all the strollers they have in Germany really BOOORING!) Only the best for my niece.
I think we did a pretty good job, its not too pink, really decent but sooo cute! Its girly, but not over the top.
How cute is the pattern?
Now that we got the stroller, my sister and I can go on a much needed and deserved shopping spree =)
We will probably go to the Mall sometimes next week when its not so crowded. Sucks to get a parking spot on saturdays, its so crowded in there, shopping is not fun anymore. I'd rather go when no one is there =D
Time to indroduce my niece Giuliana Luna. Since I don't have any kids (YET), she's the most beautiful little girl in the world to me =) But she is so darn cute.
She was a little over 1 week old when I took that picture. Her hair is amazing =D Outfit of course by her proud aunt =) Gosh I love her!

Have a GREAT weekend!

It's been a while since I buy eyeshadows as I have a stack of new unopened items from when I worked for Smashbox... so you can only imagine :)
