Cosmetic Brushes Update

I have a silly story behind getting this set of POSH brushes. I was in Milwaukee for the weekend and my in laws wanted to go to KMART so the hub and I did. The whole time I ignored the cosmetics and chased after my mother in law, because that's what good daughter in laws do! (he he he) So, on our way to the check out, I saw this and some cheap makeup on display. I literally paused in time, my heart skipped a beat, then my front foot took a step back to it's hind foot and then I immediately walked towards it, picked it up and exclaimed to my husband that this was exactly what I wanted! I was afraid of the mother in law and father in law asking what it was so I hugged the box and just stayed behind my mother in law! haha. Because they are the baby boomer generation and very traditional, I try to not buy cosmetics or anything useless in front of them. BUT, this.. I could not put away because I only saw three sets left.

muahaha. It was pure bliss the moment I picked it up. I got it for $14.99. Not bad right!? The kabuki runs for $12 something. It comes with a contour brush, foundation brush, eyeliner brush, dome shaped eyeshadow brush, and Kabuki brush. Also included is a brush bag and a kabuki holder! I will have a review after I get a few uses out of it. I just got done washing them for the first time.

If you're in the Milwaukee area, go to the Kmart that is located right before Mayfair Mall. I saw only 2 more sets left!

such affordable brushes! i need to up my collection, i have a sad collection of just the sephora travel pack and a skinfood blush brush XD
I'm not sure if the costco in the states sell the same things as the one in korea...but a few weeks ago I noticed a HUGE brush set by kirkland and it was only about $30USD, maybe you will end up with a new brush set soon! =D

LOL I saw those at rexalls (canadian drug store) they were helf off! They were like $10CAN, I already have most of the brush anyway so I didn't purchase it! LOL

Ouu, I know what you mean about makeup and traditional families, whenever I visit my dad's older brother's families, relatives or just to a friend's house, I avoid wearing more than eyeliner & mascara, they always freak out or look at me real funny :(

yay, you got some brushes! how do you like them so far? about the kim chi, i'm right with you!!! i always put more fish sauce! i got hubby eating with fish sauce now, too. he doesn't like kim chi but now when we eat viet food, he goes for the fish sauce =) my parents always joked, "if you don't marry a vietnamese man, that will be hard cause you love fish sauce and tha will scare your husband away!!!" lol but he likes it!

spankedelic said...

oh darn. my comment didn't go through. but yay for your brushes! how do you like them so far? i'm like you...i eat my kim chi with fish sauce too! i got my husband hooked to fish sauce. lol. and he's not even asian. hehe.

spankedelic said...

you just reminded me of something we used to eat as a kid. my parents would get the mangos that weren't quite ripe. they were green and hard and sour. we would get sugar and mix fish sauce and dip the mangos into that. have you eaten that? it's a thing vietnamese ppl eat. it's goooood. memories! hehe. when i was little, eating rice and fish sauce was my thing! lol.

spankedelic said...

oh, i have one more thing i like to eat with fruits. i mix salt with either that garlic chili paste or sriracha? is that how you spell it? i like to eat that especially with peaches =) yummy!!!

Kimberly Tia said...

There you are... I was wondering what happened to you!!!! Happy New Year hun!

spankedelic said...

thank you hun. you're gorgeous as well! hope you're not tooooo bored. i'm so bored. lol. i'm craving fruit and fish sauce now. can you imagine how ppl would look at us if they read this? lol esp. if they weren't asian? they'd be like, "what the hell?!?!"

spankedelic said...

we're on the same boat then. joey is working nights right now. so he won't be home till 5:30 am so i'll be up till about 3:00 am. hehe. i'm bored so i stay up late and i don't like to sleep alone either! you should try the salt/sriracha mixture with apples or peaches. peaches are my favorite!!! lol. i'm gonna be F'ed when school starts cause i've been staying up so late. lol. my mom would get mad at me and be like, "that's why your sleeping pattern is all screwed up. you stay up late all the time" lol. she'd be bitching if i lived at home right now. hehe.

spankedelic said...

are you still taking basics? how is everything going with school? did you apply to get into the program? i'm craving peaches right now too. i'm about to eat mixed fruit. lol. if my mom knew i was staying up this late, she would be pissed. lol. she always lectures me about sleeping so late. she gets mad that i have to take sleeping pills sometimes. i haven't taken them in forever. i think my body got used to not having them. i never got addicted to them anyway. but now i might need some since clinicals start at 5:00 am this semester! and that means if i have to work out of town, i'll have to wake up like at 3 or 4 to get there by 5. if i'm in town, it won't be so bad but they send us everywhere!

awwwww....don't give up so easily. if nursing is what you wanna do, you should do it. it was really tough for me to get all my prereqs done for nursing. i actually think it was harder to get that done that actually being in the rt program. things will be okay. it's just soooo much studying. i had NO life when i was doing my prereqs and it'll be that way until i graduate. i start up on the 20th. so i have to enjoy my freedom now. i'm not gonna have it when school starts.

spankedelic said...

have you looked into the rt program? you might like that. that's why i chose the rt program. i'm thinking of doing the nursing program when i'm done. it'll only take 1 year for me. i'll bridge over and do that. you should really look into the rt program. do you guys have that?

spankedelic said...

awwwww......it's okay. anatomy and physiology was tough for me too! i made it though. you'll do fine. can you take it over to bring up your gpa? some of my friends retook it and made a's and b's! i didn't want to redo it though. i passed so that was enough for me!!!

spankedelic said...

wow that's a lot of students! that would be tough to do it again. when do you start up again?

fuzkittie said...

Those are so cute!

spankedelic said...

yeah, i'd hate to take the same class over. you start the same day as me. i'm trying to enjoy the time i have left. i was bored but now i'm kinda enjoying the time i have off. hehe.

spankedelic said...

lol. i can't believe you are eating the salt! lol. it's good!!! you're making me hungry. i just ate some ice cream and some mixed fruit. now i want something UNSWEET. but what to eat?!?!? you should try the salt with peaches =) that's the best!

spankedelic said...

i just ate a sandwich and shared with the dogs. lol. there's never anything good on tv. shoot, i might sleep early. hehe. i'm gonna try to stay up!

acutelife said...
