Small Haul Back to Mac and Lime Crime

I recently discovered that I could Back to MAC the depotted eyeshadow containers I had. For anyone that doesn't know Back to MAc is a recycling program where you can return your empty plastic containers to your Mac Counter for a freebie lipstick. For every 6 empties you turn in you get 1 lipstick I had 18 empties so I got 3 Lipsticks! From Left to Right In the pics Creme D'nude which is a Cream Sheen formula lipstick in a pretty nude color (I have been wanting this for a while) Vegas Volt which is an awesome Orangey pink Coral (I can't even describe it I bought it on a whim), and Chatterbox A bright medium pink. That's all I got from MAC the last lipstick I got is from Lime Crime In the Color Contessa Fluorescent It's a a bright gorgeous pink with a blue undertone. I was a little hesitant at first because the color is so bright but I love it.

Swatches are from Left to right Creame D'Nude, Vegas Volt, Chatterbox, Countessa Fluorescent.

So Far my Favorites are Vegas Volt, and Countessa Fluorescent they look awesome on and work with my skin tone. The others I will have to work a little bit with but I'm a firm believer that you can make any color work for you there are multiple things you can do like add a lipliner, put a gloss on top, or blot.

Hope You Gorgeous Gals enjoyed my Haul Follow me and please feel free to comment or ask any questions

Most of my items have arrived and I had such a good time opening up all of my packages. I took photos of my gets to show you Beautiful Gals I uploaded the photos to fotobucket so that I could set the sizes but now the site isn't letting me edit some of the pics for some reason. I hope the pics look okay

First here are the things I purchased from Urban Decay

From left to right:
Book of Shadows IV this item was too good a deal to pass up it was listed as $44 on the site but there is a $15 off promo code this brings the price to just $29! The promo code is SEVENTEEN11

 Fun Palette from the Feminine, Dangerous Fun collection on sale for $16

Afterglow Glide on Cheek tint in  Quickie $24

Surreal Skin Mineral makeup in Trippy  $31

Sparkling Lickable body powder in Cocoa on sale for $9

More pics

The next item is from Coastal Scents. I ordered the 22 piece brush set. The set comes in a faux leather brush roll. and I also received a free bumper sticker that says Makeup Addict I love it :D

22 piece Brush Set $34.95 after promo code item was $24.81!

I wanted new storage something that looks sleek I stumbled across these drawer units on youtube I compared the prices on a couple of sites and decided to order from Organize-It because they offered the lowest price. I ordered 4 One did arrive cracked but I called Customer Service and they did agree to send another one to me right away. I hope this one Arrives in good condition.

Clear 3 Drawer units with chrome knobs $11.99 each
I found a promo code %12 off orders $50 or more just the drawers weren't enough to get the discount so I also ordered a pack of Sqeezit tube squeezers for 2.99 this brought the total to 44.84. In case anyone wants the promo code it's EM8845

I also needed a new item for storing my cotton buds and cotton pads I made a trip to one of my favorite stores Ikea. I didn't find anything I liked in the bathroom section but I found something right away in the kitchen section I believe these jars are actually meant to store food but they are just the right size for what I needed.

2 Kitchen storage Jars $3.99 each

That's what I've received so far. I still have one more order coming with my lenses and lashes. I will post that up as soon as it arrives. I will be posting reviews on these items as well after I have a chance to use them. If anyone has any questions or comments feel free to add them. Bye Bye Gorgeous Gals
