The moment this came I think it’s safe to say I almost ripped the wrapper to shreds wahahaha. I was sooo excited when I saw this on the Althea site that the excitement levels were too high when this came!!!
I felt that this was a very apt box for the holiday season regardless of whether someone will use these items for new year’s eve parties because I personally find this to be a good 2017 starter pack. You see, I come from a very conservative Chinese family and when I wear makeup to clan parties I am made fun of. I have a particularly abominable aunt (I just hate her so much gah just thinking about her already makes me angry) who has always made sure to make me feel out of place when I do special makeup. She will incessantly bring it up, incessantly ask other people to comment, and keep on asking makeup questions and roll her eyes when I give her recommendations. She has already compared me to another aunt in our clan who is popular for having drag queen makeup even when I’m not doing drag queen makeup. She’s just so horrible. I honestly have long wanted to tap out of clan parties because of her and am already proposing to my father to pay me an appearance fee or tolerating-my-horrible-aunt fee if I am still to attend.
Since I have to deal with someone of such evil, I normally tone it down when I’m seeing my relatives and turn it up when they’re not there. I instead was very giddy to see this as this has all the glamorous things to jumpstart a bright and prosperous 2017. They could have named this New Year box and the items would still be relevant.
And so yaah going back this shot was already after I rummaged through this box several times as I reaaally liked what was inside hahahahaha
