most drug stores had a buy 1 get 1 free sale last week... so what did I do?? gora pagbayola ng kung anik anik... eh pano?! adik! LOL!!
so I went to CVS/Pharmacy & got me the L'Oreal H.I.P./High Intensity Pigment Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in BLACK; L'Oreal H.I.P. Cream Shadow Paint in LOFTY - BOGO free, so I paid $11.99 for both + tax; 2 tubs of Neutrogena Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads - I also got these for the price of 1 which is about $9.99 + tax... then stopped by Longs Drugs & got me my favorite eye liner for life, 2 Almay Eyeliner Crayon Contour in BLACK these are also BOGO free & got me a small tub of Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads(15pads) - $1.99 just to try em out...

I also picked up a few brushes from Target (Sonia Kashuk angle blush brush & blending brush); K-Mart (Image Essentials angle blush brush + free pencil brush); CVS/Pharmacy (Essence of Beauty double-sided smoky(crease)/wide eyeshadow brush + free eyeliner angle brush & crease brush + eyeshadow brush) ....

like I need any more!! take a look at my brush collection....
I didn't get to fix the beads on this long glass container... coz I just bought it, I had a shorter one but I had to get something bigger that can accommodate my growing brush collection...
it bugs the heck out of me, so I'll probably fix it later then post another picture... yes, I'm anal like that!!

this one below includes a few paint brushes, I did my research & discovered that some paint brush brands are comparable to some MAC brushes... & they are!! I used a sauce/dressing serving container...
I've collected these brushes over a period of 1 year, if not less.. I started with the AVON & Mark ones coz I used to work with all girls at my last job & there's a lot of AVON reps there so you know how that works... then turned to Sephora, then online websites, then MAC & drugstores of course! I dunno what it is, but it's so friggin addicting!! for some reason, I always have to stop by the makeup section of every store to check out their brushes, it's like there's a strong force always pulling me in & I always end up buying some (at least a couple at a time)... it's so much fun even just lookin at them... LOL! I know I'm the biggest dork! but hey, it's not just for show, I really do use all of them... they are all quality brushes & they really come in handy especially when you're just messin around practicing with eyeshadows, it's nice to have a lot to use when you change up different eyeshadow colors... the only down side to having a lot of brushes is washing them, which has to be done at least 2-3 times a month... it was fun at first but it takes a lot of time to do... so I figured out an easier way to do it... I spot clean each time I use, then when it's due for some deep cleaning, I wash them in batches, not all at once... in fact I just did a batch last night.. I have to do some more tonight... yay!!

I'll be doing a review on some of the products I mentioned on this blog later on, so watch out for that!
