Red Lipstick & Champagne Dreams: November 2011

e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush

So I am coming to you today to talk a little bit about this amazing little brush I found from e.l.f. It is called the Studio Powder Brush and this brush is retailed at $3.00 dollars and it was worth every penny. You know how some people say you get what you pay for?! Well ladies e.l.f  has made it possible for us divas on a budget to be able to get good quality makeup and tools for reasonable prices.  

This brush is intended for powder but I took the liberty to use it for my liquid foundation and it's AMAZING! This brush is so smooth! I get the most beautiful finish when I use this brush during my foundation routine. It almost works as a kabuki brush by evenly distributing the foundation and giving me a beautiful air brushed effect.

I definitely recommend this brush, as it can be used as a powder brush, foundation brush as well as a blush brush. The possibilities as endless and yo will get great results!

I not a braider so I've been on youtube looking at tutorials, so hopefully it will come out looking as good these ladies do! What is your favorite protective style?

Sigma's The Cities Collection

Brace yourselves ladies, because Sigma is coming out with a new line of brushes. This collection will be called The Cities and this is Sigma Beauty’s special edition travel kit collection! The kits feature seven travel-sized brushes from their best selling Essential and Premium Kits (E05 Eyeliner, E35 Tapered Blending, E45 Small Tapered Blending, E60 Large Shader, F05 Small Contour, F15 Duo Fibre, and F30 Large Powder). 

The brushes are held in a super cute travel-size container that turns into two brush holders to keep the brushes organized. This is a huge plus it allows for us to keep our brushes organized while traveling and ready to be used! 

This collection contains four kits which are named after four different cities: London (brown), Tokyo (pink), Paris (red) and New York (black).

I am super excited for this line as I am looking to expand my brush collection. These would also make great gifts for this holiday season. 

Sigma will be launching The Cities Collection on November 21, 2011, so be sure to stop by their  
website and check it out. I'll leave the link bellow. Have a great day my loves.

Favorite Beauty Product of The Month!

So I wanted to present to you today my favorite product of the month. Ok this wasn't purchased this month but it has become my go-to lipstick. Any look that I have created this color has gone well with it. I know that Nikki Minaj brought on the whole pink lips thing back, but let me tell you now...I totally understand her love for it. This lipstick looks so beautiful with my skin color. During the summer I am a NW45 (MAC color) and I would say I am a shade or two lighter now, and this color is a great accent. This particular lipstick can be very drying to the lips if not used with caution. I usually put on some lip balm before applying it and when on I like to add a dab of Viva Glam I Lady Gaga lip glass. I definitely recommend this lipstick to EVERYBODY.
