Florida Haul Pt. 2- MAC and CCO

I stopped in at the MAC at the Florida Mall and the CCO at one of the nearby outlets. I was pretty pleased by the selection at the CCO (Prime Outlets Orlando). The best part is that the sales associate left me alone to play around in the store. There is nothing I hate more than being asked twenty times if I'm "finding everything ok" while shopping. One time would be sufficient enough to let me know that they are available to help me! :P

At the MAC store, I picked up a 239 brush, 224 brush, and a bottle of brush cleanser. After finishing up my Sephora brand cleaner in my Project 5, I thought I'd try the MAC one. I'm building up my MAC brush collection a little differently and I might get some flack for it. I ordered my Sigma brushes quite awhile ago and have my favorites. With those favorites, I'm trying to get the MAC brushes that they are similar in style to. I'm choosing the ones that I use on a daily basis so that I don't have to clean them all as often and still have my favorite brush style to reach for. I must say that the MAC 239 is very different from the Sigma version!

CCOs limit each customer to three eyeshadows unless using a different method of payment, just to let you know for future purposes. So I used a credit card on three and paid cash for the others. It's a little annoying, but it's worth it! The eyeshadows are Flourishing, Love Lace, Fashion, All Races, Bough Grey, and Tempting. The MSF is Brunette from the Brunette, Blonde, Redhead Collection. The pigment is Mutiny from the Naughty Nauticals Collection. The most expensive item was the MSF, which I think was $20. Not bad! :)

Now the not-so-fun part of depotting all of the shadows for my palettes. Time to whip out my old hair straightener and get to work, I suppose! My step-by-step tutorial on how to depot shadows can be found here. And because I am obsessed with CCOs (Cosmetics Company Outlets), feel free to tell me about your best buys at them!

Oh yay! Which part of Florida are you going to? I've been to a few cities there and I've loved every single one. :) They have some of the best outlets in Orlando and Destin. I'm so excited for you!
