Long time no see!!! To the beach haul and swatches

Hey gals and dolls! Long time no see! So much has been going on in my life! First off, a few of you know that I'm currently in the military and I'm stationed in North Dakota :/ well...I found out in the beginning of may that my husband and I got orders to Okinawa Japan!!!!!! I'm sooooo excited! We will be moving in September and I can't wait. I wanted to experience a new culture and finally I'm going to be given the opportunity to do so. It's going to be a bit more difficult to indulge my mac addiction but ill figure it out somehow. I can't wait to try a few of the japanese brands as well. other than that, hubby and I are going on a cruise at the end of next month as well to the bahamas. YAY!!! I can't wait!! So im getting things ready for that as well. Okay enough of my babbling :) on to business

Well...I'm sure you gals know about the most recent MAC collection (To the beach). This was a huge collection what came out with two different sections Makeup items and bronzers/brushes. Overall, I really loved this collection. I didn't get any of the eye shadows (I just couldn't see myself using them too often, but they are really pretty). But I did end up getting the Float on By eye kohl, Flurry of fun l/g, lazy day l/s, Lustre drops in sun rush, the bronzing oil, and 2 of the Marine Life highlighters (or blushes). I have to say, I love everything that I bought and I can't wait to wear them. I want to see how I'm going to make lazy day work but hell, if I can make Viva glam II look good on my skintone, lazy day shouldnt be that much more difficult. My favorite out of everything I bought is the bronzing oil. I think every WOC should get this! No ifs, ands, or buts! It gives you the most BEAUTIFUL glow I have ever seen. I'll be packing this in my bag when it comes time to go to the bahamas :) I want to see how the e/l wears on me as well since I have oily lids and e/l has the habit of migrating where I put it :/. Okay...without further ado...swatches!!!!
