This meant that my 2 lipsticks melted and my blushes heated up. I'm so annoyed at him but I know that Australia Post will do nothing if I complained as they use contractors to deliver their parcels. My old postman used to always ring the bell to tell us that we had a package and/or to get our signature for registered packages. If no one was home, my packages would never be dumped directly in the sun. He was amazing! I wonder where he's gone now :(
Edit: I should probably clarify that I'm annoyed that my postman leaves my packages out in the sun rather than put it in the shelter 2 meters away. I understand that they do leave packages at the door but they shouldn't be leaving packages that need signatures at the door like mine does. Although my driveway is slightly steep, my front door can still be seen from the street and my package today stuck out like a sore thumb.
I've also been sick recently so while I wanted to do lots of swatches for this post, I didn't want to contaminate anything. I've had lots of hauls over the last week and I've been wanting to post about them but I'm going to wait until I can do swatches :)
|MAC Pro palette + 6 blushes|
I made this MAC order around the end of December last year with PriceUSA. I found out that the Pro palettes had been changed and they now have a clear see-through lid rather than the all black plastic palettes that they used to have. I couldn't find one of the old palettes in Sydney (the Pro store never picked up their phone) but I figured out that if I made a "custom palette" order from the online US MAC store, then I could potentially get one of the old black palettes so I quickly placed an order for a Pro palette and 6 blush pans. I know that it was a really expensive outlay but it's something that I've been wanting for a LONG time and if they hadn't changed the palettes, I would probably still be waiting to buy it. I might still buy the new palette so that I can depot my other eyeshadows and blushes.
|MAC Blush Palette|
Top row: Dollymix, Fleur Power and Mocha
Bottom Row: Gingerly, Cubic and Buff
Each blush pan was $17 and the palette was $16 so I paid $118 in total. I just went back to the MAC US website to check and they've replaced the custom blush palettes with the new palettes so the price has also increased to $129.
I also picked up a lipstick in Lustering ($15) and a sheen supreme lipstick in blossom culture ($16). Lustering melted quite a bit and it stuck to the sides of the tube so it's really wobbly at the moment.

|Blossom Culture and Lustering|
As Lustering was so wobbly, I had to be really careful with swatching. The pictures show the true colour of the lipsticks and I'm in LOVE with blossom culture. I thought that it would be a boring pink but it's slightly peachy and I can't wait to start using it. Lustering reminds me of Love Goddess from the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection. I've obviously swatched Love Goddess more heavily (photo below) but as you can see, they're both raspberry reds.

I'll have a separate post with swatches of all the blushes when I get over this virus/cold/suspected food poisoning. I'll also have a post up shortly about one of my Sephora hauls :) There'll be lots of swatches and a review in that post!
