Just warning you, it is a pretty big haul~
1. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Finally! No more waiting. I woke up early and got my ass to my nearest Game Stop to pick up my pre-order for Skywards Sword. I bought the Collectors Edition which includes the game, a limited edition Zelda Wiimote, and the 25th Anniversary Special Orchestra CD. I am loving it, but I know most of you don't cre for video games, so I will leave it at that.
2. Julep October Maven
This is super late. I received the October box for free because I was one of the people who signed up for the Julep Maven the month that they started it. Unfortunately, the package got lost, and they resent it to me, but I barely received it. I skipped the November and December boxes because I didn't like the products that were included. I don't mind that it came late since I got this for free anyways. There is an anti-aging hand cream, a bright blue polish, and a metallic silver polish. The polishes look pretty, and I will swatch them soon enough.
3.Lime Crime Lipsticks
Again? Yes, again. I know a lot of people don't like Lime Crime, but I personally love their lipsticks. Their eyeshadows are fine, but the lipsticks are what keeps me coming back for more. I purchased 4 colors: Coquette (nude), Mint to Be (mint green), No She Didn't (cotton candy blue), and Styletto (black). Three of the four are very bold colors. I wanted to experiment with different lip colors, and these seemed the best option for me. I know there are other brands that offer colors like these, but they are not accessible to me. Lime Crime was my best option. So far, I am in love! I have only tried Coquette and Styletto, and they are both creamy and opaque. I will review these separately and have lip swatches as well~
4. Illamasqua (from ASOS)
I have been lemming three Illamasqua products for a while. I wanted to purchase them during the Sephora F&F sale, but either they were not in stock or Sephora did not carry them. I would order from Illamasqua.com, but the shipping charges are ridiculous! I think it is about 9 pounds ($14) to ship to CA! I happened to discover that ASOS carries Illamasqua products, and they had the three products I wanted. I wanted the Moral Blush, and two Cream Pigments in 'Depravity' and 'Androgen.' Lucky for me that the Moral blush was $23, which is slightly cheaper than retail price.
I just realized I forgot to swatch Moral Blush...but no worries, I will do a separate post on my Illamasqua blushes.

5.Motel The Trinity Dress from Karmaloop (Gift)
Do you guys want a full OOTD with this dress?
6.Rescue Beauty Lounge 'Anne' and 'Chinoise' (Gift)
|Anne comes in an LE red box.|
I will also have swatches of these soon.
7.Butter London 'Black Knight' and 'A Tart with a Heart' (Gift)
I have yet to try them, so I can't say much about them yet. They look pretty though :)
Oh my, that was a lot. I am glad I got this stuff now, since it will encourage me not to buy any more makeup/nail polish. I have plenty to keep me happy! I will be doing swatches/review of these within the next two weeks or so. Request what you would like to see next :D
