A play on Oh No They Didn’t’s “Free For All Fridays,” every Friday is Free For Haul Fridays! Friday is a day for fun — whether you’re already off enjoying your weekend or if you just need a way to get through til the end of the work day, FFH is here for you!

First, I’ll share mine!
MAC Liberty of London stuff — Give Me Liberty of London eyeshadow, A Different Groove & Perennial High Style lipglasses, and Peachstock lipstick.
I have two finals and a midterm on Monday/Tuesday, so my weekend is spoken for by textbooks 🙁
OVERALL, I like the packaging a lot — I just think it’s spring-y and fun. It’s not actually my personal style/taste, but I dig it. I really liked the lipsticks (so creamy and pigmented!) and beauty powders (even though both were previously released); the lipglasses are nice but since I haven’t seen two, I’m still just waiting to see whether they grab me or not. While the eyeshadow shades fit the theme of the collection, I definitely see myself mixing the shades more with other shades I already own than just using them altogether!
