My M.A.C Haul

i received an email from my friend ina, who works at Bobbi Brown, about a private sale at mandarin oriental. different makeup brands such as Bobbi Brown, M.A.C, and Clinique were being sold at 50% off! i immediately told kath, and we decided we had to go!!! ;)

we even researched the M.A.C. eye brushes we wanted to get, teehee. but turns out they weren't selling individual brushes, dang! they did have a SE (special edition) brush set which included the 217 (blending brush). this was highly recommended by marlena of makeupgeek, and according to her, if you're getting just 1 brush, get this 1. so how could we pass up this opportunity? :P got it for P1625. it included the 209 (eyeliner brush), 212 (flat definer brush), 252 (large shader brush), and 275 (medium angled shading brush). it came with this nice clutch :)

another thing we were aiming to buy was a Paint Pot! but they only had 1 color left, waaaah! and the worst thing is that they just ran out that morning :(( sighhhhh. but we still bought one, ahihihi. it was a steal at P330 (70% off, woot!) the shade was Greenstroke, silverish-greenish. man, if they had more colors available, i bet we would have gone mad over them :))

i also bought an eyeliner, because i didn't have one in black (how could i have one in brown, and white, but not in black?). i got the Dual Edge Eye Pencil Phone Me/Text Me: charcoal grey (ok, apparently it's grey, but good enough for me!)/metallic silver with silver glitter. got it for P500. good find, eh?

and finally, i bought a face brush set, haha! consisting of the 187 (duo fibre brush), 168 (large angled contour brush), 190 (foundation brush), and 194 (concealer brush). i already have a foundation brush, but what the heck! couldn't resist the stippling brush anymore, teehee. plus i realized i wanted to get an angled brush and a concealer brush :P i got it for P1900.

i'm really psyched about my purchases, wheeee :) :) yeah, yeah, i went a lil crazy (um yeah, just a little! :P), but hey, it's not everyday you get such good deals! ;)
thanks for the tip ina! :D
