My first Mac (online) order for under $100!

There was a thunderstorm last night that knocked down lots of trees and our power went out around 11 pm.  I was going through Blogger withdrawals.  lol.

Anyways, I don't know about you, but whenever I walk into a Mac store, I just overwhelmed.  I get greedy and want to try everything.  And because of this, most of the time I walk back out empty handed.  *sigh*

So this time I thought I would try looking online.  I went to the Mac cosmetics site here.  It's so much nicer being able to take my time and look through everything.  I like shopping online, but I can't swatch any colors.  boo.  The swatches on the website are nice but I don't know how true to life they are.  I had to just go by what was provided online.  There was free shipping on orders over $50 so I also took advantage of that.  

I ordered four eye shadows, one lipstick and one dazzle gloss.  I just received my order on Thursday which was really great shipping time because I had just placed my order on Monday.  I spent around $100 on this purchase, where everything I ordered was priced at $14.50.  This was more than what I would normally spend on cosmetics, but my birthday is coming up (July 10!) so I thought I would treat myself.  (I have to be good to myself, right? lol) 

I only ordered one lipstick because I was worried about the lipsticks melting in the June heat via shipping.  Everything I ordered though came in tact and in a black box with black tissue paper.  
 What I ordered:
 Mac Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme d' Nude
 Mac Lipglass in Lychee Luxe
Swatches of Creme d' Nude and Lychee Luxe
I decided to choose colors that I would use over and over again to get my money's worth.  These are probably the most expensive eye shadows I own (so far).  I choose these because they are mentioned again and again by so many YouTube gurus.  I was most interested in Satin Taupe because so many other people mention it and look for dupes to this particular color.
