    (I know I'm not participating in this round, but) you took quite a few of the things I put in there :) Flirt Alert was my favourite lipstick for a long time. Tell me what you think of the texture!

    ^ C-Dot, I think that is because we have the same tastes in cosmetics. :lol:

    Forthworthgal, did you try the Crabtree and Evelyn Pomegranate lotion sample?? I took one of those , too and i love it so much, i am going to buy a bottle of it! It is lovely!!

    I haven't tried it yet, but it looks lovely! I'm a hand cream junkie so I can't wait to try it out.
  7. Lovely selection there! Y'all have fun. I would have done it again, but I cleaned out my cache on the last go-round.

    You should try the shower gel too - It's such an amazing smell. Its one of those ones that makes your skin tingle, too :)

    Okay ladies, the box is on the way to Grant Fan!

    I wanted to advise everyone of a slight change - I decided not to do the written inventory list in the box this time. First, I didn't feel like inventorying the entire box and writing down 8 pages of itemized small items. Secondly, it didn't seem to work well at all during round 1. In fact, I think it only confused people. :lol: When I cleaned out the box before shipping, there were a *lot* of items on the list that weren't in the box, and I found items in the box that weren't on the list... so I think it was just too much to keep up with. So, we'll just go on the honor system this time around. Okay with everyone?

    That's fine with me, when I ship it though I might just list a few items here for the sake of giving people a sneak peek of what went in.

    ^ I just meant we won't have a written list inside the box that you have to cross items off when you take out. We'll still post here and show & tell what we've taken out! That makes it more fun for everyone.

    I shipped the box to Grant Fan on Friday, so hopefully she'll have it sometime early this week.

    Yay! Nice picks, Grant Fan! You got some fun stuff. I put that True Match foundation in. I love it, but I had 3 back ups and I figured someone else could use it. :D
