installment number 2 to my 'MAC LOOTS' series.... 

Brush Cleanser
I used to use the Clinique one but this time I wanna try out MAC's... I needed something that would clean my brushes & dry in an instant.. this came in handy when I had gigs for multiple people... 

I like this better than the Clinique one, but the only thing that's cool about the Clinique is that it's a spray bottle... it's more of a hassle to use MAC's coz you have to pour it on a paper towel... it sucks when you over pour... wasting a lot of product is no bueno!!

bottle looks big but this is how it looks like on my hand... & I have itty bitty hands
but I know this'll last me a long time...

I also got the Slim Mirror

the backing has this leather-like material

I got this around the same time I got my Graftobian foundation palette & as mentioned in my Camera Ready Cosmetics wish list post, I needed a mixing palette for the foundations... I needed it that same weekend for a makeup gig so when I saw this at the MAC counter, I decided this'll do for now.... 

I love how multi-purpose it is! mixing palette, mirror, ID/credit card holder... you name it! LOL

& finally I got the Viva Glam Gaga Lipglass

I saw one of the MAC girls wearing the Gaga 2 lipstick topped with the Gaga 1 lipglass & it looked purdddyyy! so I knew I had to get this to pair with my Lady Gaga 2 lipstick

here I am wearing the lipglass

can you guess what would be featured on my next 'MAC Loots' series?? =D

Milani is having a free shipping promotion goin on right now.... 

& since I could not find any of the baked blushes in my area I decided to get me one from the website...

I wanted to get the Coralina & the Luminoso... but judging from the swatches I've seen, the blushes seem to have a sheen finish to it... & I'm not such a big fan of sheen on my cheeks... I think it emphasizes my oily skin some more... so I decided to get only one for now so I can try it out & see how I like it... the one shade that stood out the most to me was Coralina... so I ordered that!

I can't wait to try it out... =)

how bout you?? have ordered anything from Milani yet???

I'd love to know what you ordered.... =)

if you are like me, who is not so fond of shipping fees, this is your chance to grab stuff from your Milani wish list... hurry coz this promo ends tomorrow, August 5th....
