Happy Happy Mail Day...

Happy Monday, everyone!!! After an interesting weekend and a long day at work, the mailman was extra nice to me today. I came home to two extra-sweet packages!

First, I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that my favorite-lip-balm-in-the-whole-world, Crazy Rumors, was having a half-off sale on their site. I received my order today and I couldn't be happier!

French Vanilla x 2, Mocha, Bubble Gum, Raspberry Sorbet, Pink Grapefruit Juice and HibisKiss Lip Tint in Coral.

I could have easily.....easily....purchased a lot more, but I paired it down to the absolute favorites and the ones I had to try right now. French Vanilla is an absolute staple for me, it smells like a hot cup of vanilla-drenched coffee. I put this on and my co-worker literally says "....*sniff sniff....Are you drinking Coffee?" it's so amazingly yummy, this is a warm winter night wrapped up in a blanket in a tube. Mocha smells just as good, a little nutty, a little chocolatey with a little hint of vanilla. Bubble Gum smells sweet...and really, what more can I say? It smells like a gumball right out of the candy machine!! But, this has a natural sweet scent, not a synthetic sweet. Raspberry Sorbet and Pink Grapefruit Juice are light, juicy scents that smell like you're opening a carton or drinking a glass of the real thing. I really don't know how they do it to get the scent so exact. The HibisKiss lip balm is really special. It has a light, citrus-like scent. I can't really say it smells like a Hibiscus, but it probably has hints of it.

But, what I really love is the color. There are 6 shades to chose from, it was so hard to pick one! Coral is a lovely red-ish tint with a pink sheen to it (it photographed warmer/darker). It's so pretty, I don't own anything like this:

Second...this other package I was not expecting! The Lovely Linda from My Pretty Pink Box notified me that I was a winner in one of her contests. I knew I was going to get something in the mail, but I didn't know when. What a surprise!!!!

Thank you, Linda!!! ♥

Now, I knew that I was going to be receving some goodies from Silk Naturals...but what I didn't expect was THIS:

Holy moly!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't take individual photos, but here's what the prize package contained: 9 eye shadows (Idolize, Slate, Beach Plum, Posh, Breathe, Purrr, Sandy, Basalt, Gasp), 4 blushes (Climax [I wonder what blush this is a dupe for?], Stardust, Vino & Tart [omg the brightest pink EVER!!!!!]), 1 large jar of Perfecting Powder, Sheer Bronzer in Beach Bunny...

*takes a deep breath*

And not pictured but also included:
4 oz bottle of Pre REfining Toner, 4 oz. bottle of Kiss Cleanser, 1 oz. bottle of Simply C Serum, Kisser Slicker gloss in Nectar AND....Black Label gloss in Devil's Food Cake (WOW, smells exactly like cake batter!!).

Again, a BIG BIG BIG thank you to Linda & Silk Naturals!!!!
