What is the weirdest gift you have ever received from anybody on any of your special occasions, birthday, anniversary, marriage etc?? There is no dearth of how creative people can get with gifts. On my wedding , a gentleman (donâ€™t ask who he was, I have no clue, someone from hubbyâ€™s side) approaches us on the stage and hands over a plastic file with about 20, typed,Â A4 size paper neatly bound. Wishes us congrats and moves after posing for the shutterbug. Later when we open the file, to our disbelief it was a 20 page guideline to successful marriage written by that gentleman. And the highlight is that he is a 55yrs old bachelor 🙂
Then there are those usual unwanted common gifts that everyone comes across non-stick kadhai , plasticy Dinner sets, Casseroles, artefacts made of porcelain (u know those 2 pigeons pecking ones), pre laminated photo frames (with some random waterfall or mountain scenery or even worse Tajmahal), roti-makers, overly jazzy costume jewellary, lamp shades. Along with all these creative blessings for the home sometimes we come across people getting personal and gifting makeup sets and perfumes. Not that I would not like a Dior/Chanel makeup set or Guerlian perfume. I would grab it with both hands. But if itâ€™s the not known ones it worries me.
One such gift was this set of color co-ordinated lipstick and nail polish from J Casanova Paris. Yes, the name worried me too. But the source I got it from was reliable. I got it from a distant aunt of mine from Dubai who picked it up for me (I am famous for my makeup fetish to the farthest end of the world I guess) along with some other typically wedding gifts.
Firstly the name J Casanova, why would any product for women be named so?? Does J stand for Julie or Jamie , Casanovaâ€™s little sister who went on the foot step of her brother? Whatever! Then I google to find about the brand and ahoy.. i did find some info. Chalo , confirmed its a decent brand and not some china maal.
Hereâ€™s a little more about it:
It came in golden paper packaging on the outside. The Lipstick holder is all golden in color with the name imprinted on it that has faded of over the time. The color of the lipstick is called Violet Red which surprisingly beautiful reddish violetish pinkish when worn. The shape of the bullet is kinda unusual. You may not figure it out coz I have used it often. But it was actually like a rocket. Lol. Â The texture of the lipstick is very soft and smooth. Pigmentation is decent and staying power is for about 5-6 hours.
