purchase: noun; possession obtained with money

I was recently invited to an "exclusive sneak peek" of the new MAC collection, A Tartan Tale. Of course I attended, and I am extremely glad I did. The Yorkdale store was completely packed with crazed women all looking to score a good deal and it was difficult to even get near the table displayed with the new collection. That was until I met an employee who helped me select my winter shade of Studio Fix - Powder Plus Foundation (thank god, my tan is now completely gone and I was looking a little more than orangey) and then spread a clear path for me to the Tartan table! This is where I discovered a fabulous brush set for a great price, and gawked at all the other products I couldn't afford. My last and final purchase at the MAC store was their brush cleanser - which works fantastically. The evening was enjoyable and exciting, complete with spiked lemonade served by handsome fiddlers and the satisfaction of walking away with a few great purchases.

Here are a few pictures of the things I came home with:

 Brush Clenser

 Studio Fix - Powder Plus Foundation in N3

 Brush Set: Sweep Me Off My Feet - Sweep & Define

Awesome bag the brush set came in.

Tartan broach, the free gift for attending.

My quick review of the products:
LOVE the brushes
LOVE the foundation - perfect colour
LOVE the brush cleanser- works very well, my brushes have never been so clean
LOVE the cross-body bag - perfect for holding a compact, cellphone, and some cash


  1. Great purchases, I'm so envious! And that broach is adorable!! Thanks for commenting on my blog-- following you now :)



  2. I was so sceptical of mac because of how much it costs, but now that I use it (mainly the foundation) I think it is worth every cent. I just bought a black trench from value village and I can't wait to wear the little bag with it!!
