If we ever meet again, I'll have so much more to say

So this past weekend marked the last Estee Lauder warehouse sale for the year.. I wasn't able to attend the September sale, so I made up for it by taking my cousins for their first sale experience! I attended the sale on Saturday, and I'm extremely proud of my self control. It was hard to curb my enthusiasm since it felt like I was experiencing the sale for the first time, thanks to the frantic running around that my cousins did. You can see my past few hauls here and here.

I only picked up two items:

MAC moisturelush cream - $25 (looks like marshmallow fluff!)

MAC matte blush in 'Coppertone' - $15

For the December sale, they reintroduced the $5 charity packages. I had heard that for the September sale, they were no longer doing it, so this was a nice addition. However, they changed the idea behind the charity packages. They no longer had a display board out to show what was in the package. They were advertising it as a 'mystery package of 3 products for only $5.' They also said that the packages 'may or may not' be different, which I thought was a little silly. Between my cousins and I, we figured out that the only item that differed was the shade of the eye shadow.

MAC mineralize eye shadow in 'Faux Gold'

 MAC amplified lipstick in 'Neon Orange' (a pro colour, extremely similar to Morange)

MAC lipglass in 'Social Light'

And last but not least, the free gift:

MAC select sheer/loose powder in 'NW15'

I didn't do any swatches for the charity package this time around because I'm actually not sure if I'll be keeping anything, or putting it away in my box of goodies for future giveaways.

Speaking of my box of goodies.. I think it's about time I tried to dwindle my stash, so I'll be hosting a giveaway with not just one prize package, but two! Each package will contain two brand new cosmetic items. I won't list the actual items, so this will be a nice little surprise before Christmas!
