Soft Surroundings Haul +

When I got home from work today I walked in to find our kitchen table covered with packages (ok, that's a stretch). Needless to say, I skipped dinner in order to tear them open and photograph what I received (speaking of which I am hungry).

The first package I opened comes from the lovely Sparkle Is My Crack. We had a bit of an impromptu swap and I basically had no idea what I was going to receive. I was blown away by her generosity and the obvious time she spent putting together my package. She must have tediously filled 20 or so little baggies with powder and then labeled them all as well! Look! Thank you Lisa Kate!
Tons of different e-tailer pigments for me to try (and a couple of old standbys from MAC)! I am so excited!

And my Soft Surroundings haul. 
I know there are some ladies that had their orders packed in padded envelopes (guess they didn't order as much as me). Mine came in little boxes complete with tons of bubble wrap and cutely wrapped with tissue paper and a sticker.

I wound out ordering all Paul & Joe (I'm sure you're shocked). I picked up 6 of the eyeshadows, 5 of the lipsticks and a lipliner which Lina over at The Beauty Look Book recently raved about. These pictures aren't the best but the products are adorable packaged and look so pretty. I can't wait to try them out and review them for you.

Whew! Guess I better get to swatching and testing. But first I think I'll have some dinner.

I absolutely LOVE Paul and Joe's packaging. it's just so gorgeous and sweet. And what a nice swap, lovely Lisa Kate :)

@Ngelic: Yes it is but I couldn't resist at $1.99 for the eyeshadows and $7.99 for the lipsticks! The whole haul cost me a little under $60 including shipping. Can't beat that!

@Bea: Oh neat! I'll stop by and look. Yes, the packaging is to die for. I can't wait to try the actual products. =)

@Lillian: I know! It's so cute. And yes, a very lovely swap with a very lovely person, indeed. =)

@Joyce: Most of the stuff was sold out when I checked out too. Glad you were able to get a couple things at least.
