MAC Haul

Waking up this morning was like waking up as a little girl on Christmas Day!

Mom had arrived from Vancouver this morning at 4:30 AM. At around 5:45AM, the usual time my alarm signals my wake up time, I heard voices outside. On a usual day I'd complain and head back to bed for another 20 minutes. But today was different. I instantly jumped out of bed as I knew Mom was already outside fresh from the airport.

Mom came with sooo many goodies, Bags, Sunnies and of course my MAC HAUL! :) I couldn't wait to get them the minute she had left fro Vancouver 2 weeks ago. And when she handed me my things I just couldn't stop smiling! :)

Initially I had ordered:

1 Pro Palette 15
11 e/s refills
1 Photorealism Quad
Paint pot in Soft Ochre

I was so happy she came with so much more!

My Aunt threw in a used MAC quad with 4 e/s, but sadly one of the e/s broke during transit. I was able to press the e/s and even though only 1/4 is left, it's still functional. Not only that there was a whole box filled with Nars Samples, Avon products, eye liners, Skincare and soo much more! It was crazy! Wayyy better than Christmas I tell you! :)

So without further ado, I present to you my goodies. :) *excitement!!*
Here's an image of the Pro Palette 15 with the 11 e/s refills I had ordered plus the 4 e/s that my aunt had given. From l-r the e/s are:

Vanilla, Embark, Aquadisiac (from aunt), Creme de Violet, Electric Eel (from aunt), Shroom, Goldmine, All that glitters (from aunt, e/s broke during transit! :((( ), Beauty Marked, Freshwater, Woodwinked, Amber lights, Scene (from aunt), Prussian and Deep Truths.

Here's an Image of their swatches:

Some more goodies!!

Paintpot in Soft Ochre, MAC Glitter in Antique Gold and MAC Blush in Desert Rose.

This is only some of the Make Up products that I had received this morning from my mom, I would blog about all of them but I honestly wouldn't know where to start!

So you see how much of a happy girl I am today! I got these packages before I left for work today and I had to bring my Pro Palette 15 and Photorealism Quad since If I didn't I would be thinking about them the whole day! Haha I am crazy. *bow*

So out of excitement, I did a look using the Photorealism Quad, Desert Rose Blush and Lip Stuff and other products from the loot from Vancity. :)
