Collective Haul / NYX, MAC, & Freebies

I can't deny I've felt an overwhelming amount of guilt after purchasing these products you're about to see. I almost always convince myself that I absolutely need these in my ownership. I don't think these items are necessary, but I could not say no, especially not when it's a good deal, or when it's a highly rated and recommended product. Honestly, it makes me happy to have these. My eyes twinkle and I get so giddy, like a teenager, when I see new goodies in front me. Ah, the power of retail therapy. It's a love/hate relationship.

So, what did I get?
