Blending like a Professional

Up until recently I'd always been a makeup brush girl, I'd been put off sponges since I was younger and first started out with makeup when I used to use those round foam sponges that spread foundation round my face. I tried out my first decent sponge two years ago and since then I've never looked back.  I love to use sponges to finish off my foundation, making sure it's buffed in and I find now that the best way to blend in my concealer is with a sponge.

I liked the idea of a smaller sponge, one that would be perfect to blend in my under eye concealer without me having to squish a big sponge to the size where it would fit. Here the pink mini sponge comes into it's element. It's the perfect size to blend in concealer under the eyes and the tear drop shape is perfect for using either end.

The blue sponge is quite an odd shape, pointed at one end and flat on the other, it's easy to hold and I use both ends in different ways. The flat side I use to buff foundation in and the pointed side is good for getting the harder to reach areas like the sides of my nose and under my eyes. I love the texture of this sponge, it's quite smooth and soft so it feels really nice on the skin.

I know with sponges they're meant to be used when damp but I've never got my head around that idea therefore I always use sponges when they're dry.

I was sent these two products to review and I've been given a 10% coupon code -ETSH10 for you to use at bornprettystore. All views are my own and I have not been paid for this review.

Barcelona Part Two

There were so many cute little shops that were selling the most delicious looking food. This was a little chocolate shop that we passed, it took all my effort not to buy anything and just take pictures of the food!

Barcelona Part One - The Markets

A couple of weeks ago I went to Barcelona with a few friends, here are some of the photos that I took which I thought you might like to have a look at. I'm looking over them now and wishing I was back there!!!

New Posting Schedule

I quite like to do these little updates, I like to keep you updated and in the loop of what's going on with emhasrednails. I thought it would be quite an appropriate time to cut down on my posts after my August Favourites and seeing as I'm going back to uni into my third year where I'm 100% sure I'm going to be up to my eyes in work with my dissertation, other essays and exams.

I'm going to be posting new posts every Thursday until the work gets too much. I've been loving blogging this summer and I can't wait till next year when I've finished uni so I can post like I have been doing these past few months. I've been loving reading all the comments so please keep coming back as I am still here!! Just not as often.

If you're starting uni this year you might like to read my post on Fresher's Week that I wrote last year about my experience, you can read those posts here and here.

I've recently got Instagram so I'd love it if you would follow me on there, my name like all my social media accounts is emhasrednails

If you aren't already you can keep up with all my posts on Bloglovin by clicking the little Bloglovin button to the right of this post.

Thank you so much for reading and I'll see you next Thursday for another post.

Things to Do When You're Bored

After having three months off and not having a great deal to do in that time when I'm not working, I've definitely had a few moments when I was feeling a little bored. Here are my tip top tips of things to do when you're looking for something to do.

Glowing Skin Without the Shine

Dior Star foundation

As I said in my last post, I have certain products that I will buy high end and others that I'll get from the drugstore.

Sunday, 23 August 2015

A Concealer for All Areas

Clarins Instant Concealer

I think if I'm going to buy one thing that's high end it's going to be concealer (or maybe a foundation but they are pretty similar) to me, if I'm going to spend more money on something it might as well be a product I'm going to use pretty much everyday and that will make a big difference to the look.

A Day Out In Grassington

 I don't spend that much time with my mum and dad anymore so it was really nice to go out for the day with them to Grassington. It's a really lovely place that has some nice little walks with the cute little shops that I love to wander round. Luckily it was a really beautiful day when we went so I got to try out my new camera and take a few pictures of the day.

Mixing Mascaras

Since forever (slight exaggeration, I probably wasn't bothered when I was five) I've wanted long and thick lashes, naturally I have neither which is a royal pain so I've had to try out a hell of a lot of mascaras from the aisles of Boots.

Style is Eternal - Farfetch Competition Entry

Farfetch recently got in touch with me about entering a competition celebrating Yves Saint Laurent's new exhibition called Style is Eternal. I was asked to create a complete outfit around the Iconic Smoking Jacket.

Best Brushes

Real Techniques, Zoeva
L-R, Zoeva 142 Concealer Brush, Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush, Zoeva 230 Luxe Pencil, Real Techniques Buffing Brush, Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease.

I purchased the Zoeva Classic Brush set a few months ago and since then some of the brushes have made it into my favourite brush category, however, there are still some of my trusty Real Techniques brushes in that category too.

Feeling Confident

Everyone has their down days, I don't think that anyone, no matter if they're Beyonce, Taylor Swift or the Queen, has never had a down day, we're all human. However, I think that some people are a lot better at getting out of their down moods than others. Here are my ways of getting back into a happier, more confident mood:

Brush Storage

I'm always interested in how people store their makeup and their makeup brushes. At the moment I haven't perfected the makeup storage yet but I'm relatively happy with how my brushes are kept. I have two separate cups/mugs for the brushes. In the recycled Nutella cup (I'm not like other bloggers with Diptique candles, I'm a nutella cup recycler!) are my face brushes, I'm thinking about doing a post on my favourite brushes soon so keep your eyes peeled for that. At the moment I have quite a few Real Technique brushes and some Zoeva ones too.

 In the mug are my eye brushes (and my rather large Real Techniques Powder brush that won't fit with the other face brushes) I have a mixture of lots of different eye brushes from Real Techniques, Zoeva, Urban Decay and some Boots own brand ones too. I keep my brushes on a shelf that also has my small but slowly growing perfume collection as well as my most used hair and face products.

The Dry Hand Saviour

Hand Cream

Hand Cream

Ever since I worked on a deli counter four years ago I've had dry hands. I quit two years ago but they've always stayed pretty dry. It got so bad once that I went to the doctors and she told me I had dermatitis and prescribed me some steroid cream and some really thick moisturising cream that I hated using because it felt thick and sticky for a good few hours after using it so I could only really use it before I went to bed as I couldn't do anything with my hands when I had it on.

Since quitting the job at the deli counter where I handled meat and was always washing my hands, I've since has two jobs, one in home care where I had to wear plastic gloves which make my hands dry and the job I have at home now, where I work in a care home. This is probably the worst thing for my hands because I'm either wearing those plastic gloves, or I'm washing my hands very often to keep them sanitised. I haven't once come home from work with my hands not feeling dry, it's such a pain but it's given me the task of finding a hand cream that I can use throughout the day that actually works and sinks into my hands quite quickly. (Sorry for the rather long back story but I thought I would tell you this so you could understand my problem and see how hard it is for me to get my hands to recover because of where I work). 

I think I have finally found the remedy for my dry hand issue in the form of Nivea Express Hydration Hand Lotion. I stumbled across it in Boots one day when my hands were feeling particularly dry and in need of some moisture and the words 'Express Hydration' really called out to me, this was exactly what I was looking for and with the added 'Quick Absorption' claim on the bottom I had to try it, in my already full basket it went and I tried it out as soon as I left the shop. After a couple of minutes my hands felt less dry but they didn't have the horrible tacky feeling that I get after using all the other hand creams. I can't say that my hands have ever felt soft after using this hand cream but I don't think that any hand cream will ever give me that feeling until I leave a job that requires me to constantly wash my hands and use gloves. 

I've been using this constantly now since May and I love it, I've never, ever finished a hand cream before but I'm predicting that this will be the first I ever finish. At £3.49 for 100ml this was an absolute bargain, I use it so often because it absorbs into my skin so quickly which I find is why it works so well, I'm not limited to only using it before bed like previous hand creams that I've found still have residue the morning after, this has sunk in in a matter of minutes and I can get back to doing whatever I want. 

You can purchase the miracle hand cream here and no, this isn't sponsored, I just had to tell you about the cream that has finally worked for me.

Films for a Lazy Day

I love watching films, if I'm bored, ill, tired or just in the mood I'll stick a film on and watch to my hearts content, usually with some chocolate next to me that I've finished before I've got half way through the film. Seeing as it's a Sunday and I truly believe Sundays should be spent watching films and eating crisps and chocolate followed by a roast dinner cooked by someone other than me, I thought I would give you my recommendations of what you could watch today.

These are some of my favourite films of all time, the ones I can watch all the time and they all make me smile in some way. About Time and Love Actually are both written and directed by Richard Curtis, he's written some brilliant films but these two are my favourite, I tend to keep Love Actually for Christmas but About Time is well loved all year round, a comedy but be warned, you'll need tissues for the ending, I've watched it countless times but I still cry! But don't be put off, it's a brilliant film about a man who finds out that he can go back in time if he stands in a dark room and thinks about when he wants to go back to. It's probably my favourite out of all these films.

I don't know what I can say about Harry Potter, I love the films nearly as much as the books. The casting of these films is amazing and I think they got every actor or actress right for the character, especially for the character of Luna Lovegood played by Evanna Lynch who you meet in the Order of the Phoenix, she's perfect for the part. The two that are shown, the Philosopher's Stone and the Order of the Phoenix are two of my favourite although I do love them all.

Monsters Inc and Monsters University are two brilliant films, I'm pretty sure I don't need to explain either of them because Monsters Inc is a classic comedy for all ages and the prequel is the same, I love it just as much as my parents and I'm pretty sure that kids love this film too. I love the idea that Mike and Scully met when at University and it shows how they became such good friends.

Despicable Me is similar to Monsters Inc, a genius comedy for all the family and I actually prefer Despicable Me 2, set after the original, Gru has been hired as a spy and is trying to find the bad guy who has stolen a secret formula. A funny twist on the original where Gru was wanting to be a villain, a must see if you loved the first one. Has anyone seen the new Minions film yet? I haven't had a chance to see it but I can imagine that it will be pretty good seeing as the two Despicable Me films are so good.

Finally Maleficent, a different, live action version to Sleeping Beauty which tells the tale of the witch who put the spell on Aurora to sleep. I'm not a huge fan of the older Disney films but I really liked Maleficent and also Cinderella that came out earlier this year. I'm really looking forward to the live action version of Beauty and the Beast.

I'd love to hear your recommendations about what films I should watch.

Lipsticks for Every Occasion

L-R Mac Lustering, Topshop Beguiled, Mac Peach Blossom and Rimmel Kate Moss in 107

This post could also be called my most worn lipsticks because these are worn so often. First up is Mac Lustering in the Lustre finish. I love the colour of this, a really pretty pink that looks lovely in summer. My only problem I ever have with this lipstick is that it doesn't stay around for too long meaning I have to reapply quite a lot, I don't mind too much because I love the colour. The lipstick is quite moisturising which is probably why it doesn't stay on the lips too long but it's one I can wear if my lips are a little dry.

A much darker lip colour is Topshop Beguiled, this is one of my go to colours for a night out. It lasts ages on me even when I'm drinking which is great because even when I'm sober I'm not the best at applying lipstick meaning my drunk lipstick skills are very poor so it's a good job I don't have to reapply too much. Even though this lasts a long time it surprisingly isn't very drying which is great because most of the time my lips are on the dry side.

A natural lipstick that I wear a lot in the day is Mac Peach Blossom in the finish Cremesheen. Again like Lustering this one is one that doesn't last very long on me but because of the colour it's really easy to reapply so I can even do it without a mirror. This is such a pretty natural peachy pink colour that is so well loved, I'm always reaching for this because I know it's guaranteed to look good.

The final lipstick is Rimmel 107, this is my number one go to lipstick for a bolder look. It really compliments pale skin like mine and the lasting power of this is out of this world. It's actually surprising that my two drugstore lipsticks are the ones with the best staying power! This one is quite drying though so I would recommend using a lip balm a while before applying.

What are your favourite lipsticks?

The No Makeup Makeup Look

Some days I don't fancy wearing heavy makeup and when I work I like to just wear a bit to make me look alive but most of the time I can't be bothered to do a full face, especially when I'm getting up at 6.30 in the morning.

Sometimes I don't bother with a base but if my skin is looking a little red I've really been liking the Body Shop Teatree Flawless BB Cream which is perfect for adding a little bit of coverage but feels lovely and light on the skin. I really like that this has tea tree in it which calms my skin down on a bad skin day, so really it's doing two good things for my skin. With or without the BB cream I usually always wear a little concealer on blemishes and under the eyes, for this I really love the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, it's not great for under the eyes but I find using a very light layer gives a nice finish. To give my skin a bit of colour I love The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 01 which for my pale skin gives a really natural looking glow all over.

I keep it very basic with the eyes, I rarely go without eyeliner, at the moment I've been using the Supercat liner for a really quick and easy line followed by the Eyeko Lengthening Skinny Mini Brush Mascara for a very natural look, this is not one that I use when I want a lot of volume but is great for  very natural look. To keep my brows in place and giving them a bit of extra definition I use my well trusted Maybelline Brow Drama, I have quite thick brows so I don't need a lot of help with them and when I don't have much going on with my eyes a heavy brow can look a bit like two slugs on my face, not my best look.

I hope you liked my quick tour of my very light makeup look, this would be perfect for someone going to school who isn't allowed to wear much makekup or for people who like a light makeup look. Thanks for reading.

A Few Days in Edinburgh

Photo heavy post alert, click away now if you don't want to see lots of pictures of Edinburgh!

The Scot Monument which we went up on our last day. 

 Typical tourist picture!

The Scot Monument 

We went up Carlton Hill which is where I took quite a few photos, at first it was really warm and sunny as you can see in the picture above, then a bit later the weather changed and it went really cloudy and rained on us! Typical British weather! 

This was taken a few minutes after it stopped raining, I couldn't resist taking a photo of Edinburgh Castle because it looked stunning in the sun.

Even though it had been raining, Edinburgh still looked gorgeous.

A really filling breakfast, I went for the healthy option and it was so tasty!

These next few photos were taken when we went up The Scot Monument, we had an amazing view when we walked up there (all 287 steps). It cost £4 each to go up, well worth it to get some stunning views. 

As you can see the weather wasn't great when we went to Edinburgh but we still enjoyed ourselves. We went for two nights and really enjoyed ourselves, we managed to do quite a few of the touristy things like walking around both the Old and New Town, going up the Scot Monument and having a look at the castle although we didn't pay to go in because we didn't think it would be worth it. I really like Edinburgh, it's so pretty and a lovely place for anyone to have a wander around.

Eleven Things I'd Tell My Younger Self

I can't really believe that I'm sharing these photos with you, I'm probably going to regret these! 

1. Your dad loves taking photos (and in 10 years you will pick up this hobby) so let him take lots of photos of you because now, when you're looking for pictures of yourself when you were younger, you would be able to find more than the few pictures of you when you were 10!

2. Whatever you do, don't let mum cut your fringe because the wobbly look is not a good one. Also when you were 13 and a few years ago it had taken ages to grow your fringe out, don't get it cut back in, you'll regret it straight away. 

3. Wash your face more and don't use those dreaded face wipes that I now tell everyone off for using, they aren't doing your skin any good. And stop complaining that you have spots, most teenagers have them and yours aren't really that bad, in a few years they'll clear up, I promise.

4. Having a boyfriend is not everything, yes, it would be nice but spend time enjoying yourself with your friends instead of wishing that a boy would like you. 

5. Don't wear concealer as foundation, there's a big difference between the two. There is no need to cover ALL of your face in concealer, it's not a good look.

6. Carry on being a geek because that's one thing you definitely did right, you'll make it into uni, keep up the good work!

7. Think of your poor old mum and dad when you get obsessed with a song, maybe don't ask for it to be played for the seventh time in an hour, I know you think it's the best song ever but mum and dad are getting fed up with it.

8. Don't try and be friends with the 'popular' people, they're not really that great and you have some of the best friends that accept you for your weird little self. You'll still be friends with some of them in the future too.

9. Don't try and fit in and be like everyone else, it might seem important to be like everyone now but that's boring, who wants to be the same as everyone else? Not you, don't copy people because you think it's cool.

10.  You cannot and never will be able to sing a note in tune, yes, you were in a singing concert at school but you were singing with a large group of people who made up for you being out of tune, sooner or later you'll believe your cousin who was the only one who told you the truth that you definitely couldn't sing.

11. When mum tells you that you need to brush your hair, listen to her, do you really want to walk around looking like you've been dragged through a hedge backwards? No I think not, mum loves you, she's telling you that for a reason.

The Five Product Face

I'm the type of person to use lots of different products on my face, I don't mean that I like to be caked in makeup though, that's not a good look for me. However, I tried to test myself to see if I could manage with only five products, maybe a test for going on holiday when I'm going to have to cut down on my makeup that I use daily.

The Base:  My first choice is Rimmel Match Perfection, this is quite a heavy coverage for me and I find that if I'm having a reasonably good skin day then I don't need concealer over the top. Next for the base is Soap and Glory's Solar Powder, this has been a favourite for me for quite a while now. This is great for bronzing or contouring, I use the Real Techniques Contour brush for contouring and the Real Techniques Powder brush for bronzer because its a big brush that covers all areas of the face giving it a lovely, warm glow. If I want to be really savvy here I can use Solar Powder as an eyeshadow too.

The Brows:  I couldn't miss doing my brows, my face feels bare if I haven't done them, recently I've been loving my little bargain of a find that comes in the form of Rimmel Brow This Way, this was under £5 and in it you get a really good brow wax which I've made a substantial dent in already after only using it for a few months. You also get a powder which I haven't used yet but again, I could use it as an eyeshadow. Also in this compact little product is a tiny brush and spoolie which I use all the time, it's one of the first times that I've actually used the tools that come with the makeup!

The Eyes:  I had to include an eyeliner and the Maybelline gel liner pot is the one I've been reaching for over the past few weeks and is a firm favourite because of how long lasting it is. I also couldn't not include mascara because it brings the whole eye look together, another favourite has been the Maybelline Lash Sensational because it gives really good volume and lasts quite a long time too which is an added bonus for me in summer because I'm constantly sneezing due to hay fever!

Brand Focus: Rimmel

This is the second in my little series of brand focus posts, this time about Rimmel, you can read my post about Maybelline here. I think it's safe to say that Rimmel is one of those brands, especially in England that is so widely available and very well priced that nearly everyone who wears makeup has something from the brand in their stash. For me I love their lipsticks, the Kate Moss lipsticks are amazing. I've raved and raved about the 107 on the blog for ages and it's always been a favourite with me, the colour suits my skin and the lasting power of it is phenomenal. They're also pretty reasonably priced at £5.49 and are well worth that. I also really like some of the easier to be worn shades like 077 Asia which is on the left of the two lipsticks. I find this to be really easy to wear on a day when I want a little something.

I love Rimmel foundations, not pictured here but a favourite of mine is the Lasting Finish Nude foundation that I very sadly finished a few weeks ago, I really need to pick this up again because it made my skin look so healthy. Pictured here is the Match Perfection in 100 Ivory, I really like this foundation but it isn't something I wear everyday as sometimes it can be a little too much coverage for me and in these summer months I've been favouring the lighter foundations. For when I'm a little shiny I like to add a dusting of the Stay Matte powder in 001 Transparent. This is such a cheap powder that keeps shine at bay but hardly adds coverage and doesn't look cakey.

A newbie for me is the Brow Perfection, a wax and powder in one (although I only like to use the wax) has been a great little find for me. It's so small and compact so it's been perfect when I've been travelling, it has a mini brush and spoolie (how the heck is that word spelt?) that comes with it which has been so travel friendly. I do use these two with it all the time when I'm at home because even though the brush is small and hard to hold, the actual brush is perfectly sized. The wax is a really good colour match for me and as long as I'm not heavy handed it looks pretty natural.

Finally, Rimmel's lip pencils. These are actually the first ever (and still the first) lip liners that I've ever tried, I'd never really seen the point in lip liners as I wasn't a big lipstick wearer but after getting annoyed that my nude lipsticks weren't lasting very long I decided to try a lip liner. I'd heard so many good reviews of Eastend Snob that as soon as I saw it I had to pick it up and see what the hype was about. I also picked up the 1000 kisses lip liner in Indian Pink because it looks very similar to my Mac Lustering lipstick which again doesn't stay in place that long. If I'm wanting a nude lip my go to choice for the past few months has been Eastend snob with Mac Peach Blossom. These two look lovely together and with the lip liner it lasts a lot longer which is exactly what I wanted.

The Beginner's Guide to London

I will point out here that I am definitely, 100% not an expert with things to do with London. I've been there quite a few times for various reasons but for the first time last weekend I was in London on my own and I found myself wondering what I should do. I've done the touristy things many times (the picture above is when I went with my mum, grandma and auntie and we were classic tourists) so I didn't fancy looking at Parliament, the London Eye or Buckingham Palace but if you've never been to London you might not realise just how big London is and how easy it is to get lost when you've only been around certain parts of London.

I had till 3pm, when I was getting the train back, to fill my time and I thought that it was going to drag a lot, however, it went really quickly for me. I started my day very early and went into Cafe Nero to have a drink and read my book (I've got back into Harry Potter again so I was on the Chamber of Secrets) for an hour. Around 9.30 I got the tube to Piccadilly Circus and went to Fortnum and Mason to get some of their coffee for my mum for her birthday. I'd only ever been to the ground floor and basement of Fortnum and Mason so to my surprise, I walked up to the higher floors and found a gorgeous selection of beauty and skincare on one of the floors, if you're a beauty lover and have never been up there I would definitely recommend it, if only to browse like me.

After pretending I was rich enough to buy more than coffee for presents from Fortnum and Mason I walked back to Piccadilly Circus and up onto Regent St. I love Regent St, the shops fronts are so impressive and there are so many shop windows to look in that you can really take your time up there. I had a look in & Other Stories, I've never been in there before and I was really impressed with their makeup selection and it was so reasonably priced when compared to the prices of their clothing. I found their fragrance selection and ended up buying a beautiful little spray from there, the Floral Memento Body Mist. I had a look in a few other shops and then went into Kiko. I've liked Kiko since I went in last year and bought a few products, the only place that I can ever find their products is in London so whenever I go I have a little look in. This time I bought 2 pretty eyeshadows which were on sale at £1.40 each, a total bargain.

I walked up Oxford St which is such a long street that you could spend all day browsing. I've been wanting a smaller camera for ages now so I had a look in the big department stores for what I could get (I'm thinking the Panasonic Lumix). I can't be the only one that loves wandering around department stores like John Lewis and Debenhams, there's so much to look at and I start to imagine what I would have in my own home. I ended up at Selfridges (my favourite department store ever!) I wandered round the technology department, there's some very impressive things around there and then around the makeup aisles. Again, there's so many things to look at in Selfridges that you could spend ages in there and probably get lost a few times too!

After all the browsing I walked back to Piccadilly and got the tube back to meet my friend for lunch and surprisingly it was 1pm already. I hadn't spent a lot of money that morning but I'd still had a really nice, relaxing time. Sometimes it's nice walking around London not doing the typically touristy things. I wasn't sure whether I would feel safe being in London on my own but I did, I was fine on the tube on my own, if you're not used to the tube then there are apps that you can download that tell you what tube to get on which really helped me.

The Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty

*I know this picture isn't relevant to the post but I found it from ages ago and I really like it!

1. Greed. What are your most inexpensive and expensive beauty items?

I'm a lover of drugstore makeup, I live in Boots and love finding a bargain, I think my cheapest product was probably the Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner or Collection concealer , you can see reviews for the liner here. I think my most expensive product is my Naked palette, this has been in countless posts and I love it so much, I pick this up pretty much every time I wear makeup so it's been well worth the money for me.

2. Wrath. What products do you have a love/hate relationship with?

This is a tricky one for me, but I think it would be the Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner which for me is rather pricy for what it is (I did say that I like finding a bargain). I like this at times because I think it's quite clever in the way that it's applied but it really annoys me that I can never get the right amount out of it and it's definitely not the easiest thing to do a flick with.

3. Gluttony. What are your most delicious makeup products?

I'm not really sure I understand the question with this one, aren't you meant to wear makeup and not eat it!! I like the smell of my Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107 but I can't really think of anything for this so pass!

4. Sloth. What beauty products do you neglect due to laziness?

I think I'd say lipstick with this one, I love wearing a bold lip but I barely ever do because I can't be bothered to reapply it and I'm always eating so they always wear off! I also always forget to tone in my routine, I always cleanse and moisturise but toning is something that slips my mind.

5. Pride. What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107 gives me so much confidence when I wear it, however, that means nothing to me if the rest of my makeup isn't looking good. And I've always got to have eyeliner on too!

6. Lust. What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex? 

Arms! I've always loved muscly arms! I do like someone with a good sense of humour too and they've got to realise when I'm joking and being sarcastic compared to me being serious or they would get offended by me very easily!

7. Envy. What items would you most like you receive as a gift? 

Any eyeshadow palette, I'd love the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette, the Naked 2. I wouldn't complain about receiving any makeup as a gift.
