Alright, so recently I've gotten some new things to add to my still growing collection. Most of the stuff I bought I based on necessity so I tried real hard not to get anything I won't use! Let's start with brushes: From L to R: Contour Angle brush, Synthetic e/s brush, Deluxe shadow brush (huge!), and Mini Chisel Detail brush. Those came from Coastal Scents and they're all great! The next brush is just a smudge brush from Sephora and then MAC's 217. I used all of them already and I'm seriously loving it. I'm so glad I finally got a 217! Works wonders!
I also went to Sephora and while my friend was getting her makeup done, I decided to get the concealer palette from Makeup For Ever (No. 4). I've been wanting and needing this for a while now so I decided to get it after saving some dough. Along with the smudge brush and a cologne for my boyfriend, I spent enough to get an insider card and a free gift. The free gift I chose was the Givenchy Foundation Primer. Yay! And now for the main reason I went to Mac yesterday:
So my Valentine's gift from my boyfriend was pretty great this year! He surprised me with the tiny Hello Kitty case from MAC and when I opened it, there was a gift card! This is the first time he ever got me makeup, so that's pretty cool too. I didn't know how much was in the gift card though. So when I went to MAC, I first got my 217 brush, and then one of the MA's helped me out with getting some stuff from the HK collection. I already had my mind set on Too Dolly, which I LOVE by the way! I did a smokey eye last night using Romping (the purple-ish pink e/s) and it turned out great (I wish I had pics). And I was debating on whether to get a blush or lipgloss, but went with the blush instead because I loved how it showed up on my skin. So at the register I found out the gift card had $70 in it! So generous! I couldn't thank him enough. Oh and of course, I got the free HK bag =)
So that's it! I'm glad I stuck to my plan with only 2 items from the collection, I'm nearly broke! Ah, now I will save up for the next best thing on my list.
