So for the past 2 days I've been really into reading all the comments and blog posts for my contest by my lovely followers. I really am enjoying hosting this contest. I think I will be hosting one again anytime soon. prizes will be even better. Probably when I reach 400? or 500. I would just want to share what people mostly answered for my contest entry. The contest is not ending yet, it wouldn't hurt to share to you guys what they wrote.
So I asked about what is the LEAST important products for you guys and most of you answered a face primer and false eyelashes. I would agree with them because I don't really use false eyelashes just because I only use them when there is a special occassion.
so this post is meant to show what brushes I use for my face and eyes . I'll share my favourite brushes and will explain each one of them.
Here are the brushes I use for my face and eyes.
-The first one on the left is the Sephora # 41 Round Powder Brush- This brush is HUGE! probably a size of a tennis ball. I use this all over my face and neck as well with my MSF and bronzer. I really recommend this brush. This is my absolute favorite Sephora brush. $36
-Sephora platinum air brush # 55- I saw a lot of good reviews with this brush, so I went to Sephora and got it. I believe it retails for $34. This brush is used for liquid foundations and it really works well, blends the foundation properly, and gives an air brush finish. I use this brush for my NARS sheer glow and Revlon Photoready foundation and it works well. I won't recommend using this for thick foundations. The Sheer Glow and Photoready is quite runny so it works really well with it, but I won't recommend using this brush for MAC foundations. That's just my opinion, but let me know how it works for thicker foundations tho.
- ELF Powder brush- I mainly use this for contouring my cheek bones with my bronzer. I really love this brush and it retails for just $3. Isn't that lovely? It's really hard to find a cheap brush that really works well. I also use this one for blush application. I need to place an order for one more because I really love it. I need two of these haha.
- ELF complexion brush- This one retails for $3 as well. I use this for contouring as well. I like this, but I don;t love it as much I do with the Powder brush on top.
- Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Blusher brush- this brush retails for $14.00. It's meant to be used for blushes and it works really well, but be careful because the hair on this brush is packed so be very light handed. This brush picks up a lot of products, so do not forget to tap off excess powder. I expected this brush to be bigger, but it turns out to be a size of a quarter.
A MAC Lipstick- Hue (Glaze)
- MAC 239 Eyes Shading brush- I bet you guys have seen this everywhere. This retails for CND $29.00 pretty expensive, but worth every penny. Honestly, this is by far my favourite eyeshadow brush. I use this for putting eyeshadow on my lid and it helps the eyeshadow blend really well.
-MAC 219 Pencil Brush- this brush retails for CND$ 27.50, again pricey, but worth the price I paid. I mainly use this for detailed work on my outer V and on my crease as well. I also use this for lining my lower lashline with an eyeshadow.
-MAC 217 Blending Brush - the name says it all. This brush is used for blending eyeshadows. Price for this is CND$27.00. That's all I can say.
-I would recommend these 3 brushes from MAC. Invest on a nice brush.-
I bought Hue!!
I bought a MAC lipstick in Hue(Glaze)
-I have been eyeing on this particular lipstick for a long time. It's about time to give it a try. I expected this lipstick to be very sheer, but it's not. It is pigmented, but not as pgimented as creamsheens. This would be a very toned down nude lippie. I can definitely wear this alone or with a gloss on top. I would describe it as a peachy nude with slight pink undertone and has a glossy finish to it. I predict that this will be my go-to-lipstick. Very satisfied with my purchase. Im a happy camper now.
My next post will be my favourite foundation. Watch out for that one. I would probably post it tomorrow.
