More Real Techniques Brush Love

There have been some new Real Techniques brushes added to my arsenal and they have only served to further my adoration of the brand.

The brushes I've been loving lately are: Real Techniques Powder Brush ($10 US/$12.49 CAD) This powder brush is plush, soft, and the perfect size for applying setting powder and even bronzer. I can't say enough good things about

Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection Review (and Why It’s Amazing for Pale Gals)

Let me start by saying I am not a fan of synthetic brushes. I have never found them to feel or function as well as their natural counterparts. Even many quite pricey brands I have tried have let me down. Real Techniques by Sam and Nic Chapman have been some of the very few exceptions to my synthetic free lifestyle. Many of their brushes have made their way into my personal routine and into regular use in my pro kit because not only do they not suck, they actually rock! They are super soft, blend products beautifully, and

Sonia Roselli Makeup Brush Book Review | Give the Beauty Lover the Gift of Quality Tools

Sometimes makeup lovers, especially when they are just starting out, are so infatuated by the wonderland of gorgeous colours and finishes of cosmetics that they forget the importance of having the right tools. Heck some people don't even realize the difference that having quality makeup brushes can make in their application and results. I've been wanting to post about this wonderful brush set for a very long time. I'd intended to post a very in depth review comparing the brushes to similar ones from other manufactures but I just

Great news for Canadians. The wonderful people at Nail Polish Canada now carry Sigma Beauty Makeup brushes.

My Top 10 Makeup Brushes | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

I am so excited about this weeks Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday topic. We are all sharing our Top 10 Makeup Brushes! I am a brushaholic. If I had the funds I would probably own 10 times as many. Brushes truly make all the difference when it comes to your makeup application. Whether it be ease of application, quality of pigment deposited, or quality of blending achieved, it is not just about the quality of the cosmetics you are using but also the brushes. I use natural hair brushes and haven't been able to find many synthetic

Sephora Collection Summer 2014 Review 1

Get a Natural Looking Bronzed Glow without the Shimmer with Sephora Collection for Summer 2014

Sephora Collection's Limited Edition releases for Summer 2014 include several excellent bronzing and blushing products with beautiful matte finishes. I personally prefer my bronzer to be completely matte. Partly because I often use it as a form of contouring, and secondly because I don't want that much real estate being taken up on my face with a product that is overly shimmery. I will save the glow for my highlighter and sometimes my blush. The Limited Edition Sephora Collection Bronzed and Blushing Face Palette ($15 US/$18 CAD
