Even though I’m 25, I still love birthdays as much as I did when I was just 5. Honestly – I love that day when I’m center of attention and get tons of presents (Narcissistic much? Maybe… ). This birthday was very weird. I worked all day (literally I started at 9 AM and finished up at 11 PM), but it was great! Mom, dad and Petra woke me up at midnight (oddly, I was sleeping) by singing Happy Birthday, we ate delicious cake my mom made and they gave me such a pretty present! My friend at work welcomed me with a mini tart and that had a candle in it, and some yummy cookies. Dario got me the perfume I wanted for a long time, my best friend dropped by to give me a chocolate and a hug, and another one came all the way to my work to see me, congratulate me, and give me gift coupon for my favorite makeup store. At this point you must be wondering what the hell all this has to do with Illamasqua. One of the sweetest calls I got that day was from Davorka, head of PR and marketing at Illamasqua Croatia – she called to wish me happy birthday, and the way she did it was so nice! Also, she told me to come by the store when I find time.
Couple of days later, Petra and I came by to pick up a couple of things and to give girls a big chocolate as a holiday present. I was completely clueless of what is going on but Petra knew all about it – a little black bag had Shooting Sisters written on it and was waiting for me – birthday present from Illamasqua. I was so touched by this gesture – speechless. A while ago I wrote why I love Illamasqua, and this was it – they care for their customers, and they have exquisite way of showing it.
They gave me these beautiful false eyelashes in No. 008. So pretty!! They are extremely comfortable and look amazing – they make my eyes look huge! I’ll write more thorough review along with the makeup look I did with them. Right now I just wanted to say BIG THANK YOU to Illamasqua Croatia for being this kind. This is why Illamasqua is my favorite brand.
