A special box from a special person

My boyf is as perfect as they come. He doesnt question my love for MU, will accompany me (without being prompted) to MAC and Sephora and patiently wait as I swatch to my hearts content, not once complaining that I'm taking too long. He even offers his opinion on different shades! He puts up with package after package arriving for me from Specktra sales or U.S Ebay and doesn't complain about the space they take up in his drawers.

This morning the box of NYX and MAC stuff he'd sent on arrived. The postman had positioned the box in the porch, in perfect position right in front of the door as if he knew just how special this box of treats was.

NYX have once again sent me doubles of an item I ordered - this time they sent me 3 tubes of the same shade (all good - that's another addition to go into my future giveaway bonanza)! I wonder how much stock they accidentally 'give away' by not paying attention.

This was the first lot of stuff I ordered when NYX had their mad 50% off sale in May and this is the remainder of my orders. I bought lip pencils galore (I've definitely covered pretty much all colours now), some more jumbo eye pencils and a mixture of round lip glosses, diamond sparkle glosses and Queen Of The Night shades. Oh I got 3 more lippies too. This sale was wicked. I've never spent so little on so much make up.

I'll do some swatches in a future post.

I also managed to get my hands on Fancy Ray blushcreme from the C-Shock collection, from the MAC Gone But Not Forgotten program. I still kick myself for not really being bothered about LE collections when C-Shock was released. I want the eyeshadows it came with.

I also ordered Chignon l/s from BBR from the program but it wasn't in the box this morning. I think it's probably at the back of the boys drawer somewhere. The other items are Scatterrays and Bronzescape solar bits and lipstick holders - all bought from Specktra sellers. I paid something silly like £8 for BOTH solar bits. I almost fell off my chair when I saw the price the seller had listed them at. I thought it was a mistake.

The lipstick holders are just what I need to restore some order in my collection. I've been sorting out my lippies this evening and everything looks so much neater. I'm really pleased with these.

I know my boyf looks at my blog every now and then and I just wanna say thank you for making me so happy today and doubling up as my personal courier service. Love you loads *mwah* xxx
