Tip: Powder Puffs

January 31, 2010

Replace your loose powder puffs (the ones that usually come with your compacts) on a monthly basis to prevent breakouts, and the spread of bacteria.  

You can buy disposable puffs for travel and everyday use. You’ll find them in packs of three or more. Make sure you store them in a clean, plastic bag (ziploc) so the new ones are fresh and free of hair, dust and loose powder.

I got the best news in the mail today!!!

January 29, 2010

Some of you may wonder why I am so freaking excited, and the other half of you know exactly why.   I got my MACPro Membership card in the mail today!!! I didn’t think I was going to get it because after the 1st phone call where the lady told me I needed another credential to qualify… I kind of gave up hope.  Still, I pulled my resources together & faxed it over… NOTHING! I told myself I wasn’t going to worry about it anymore, then BAM! I come home today & there’s the envelope with the caaaard!!!  I’m so happy because I can sooo use the discount right now (and forever).  I LOVE LOVE their pigments, lip products, and eyeshadows. 

Special thanks to LoveJonesy at The Bliss List 

Thank you for reading.  That’s all for now until the next post.

To ensure your mascara is as fresh, and bacteria free as possible, change it (buy a new one) every 2-3 weeks after use.  Besides, no one likes dried out, clumpy mascara.

Beauty Haul – Lash galore, eyeshadow primers, foundation

January 28, 2010

In my previous post, I mentioned I ordered a few things over the past week since I’m trying to build my kit (if you’re wondering why… click here).  

I ordered 20 pairs of eyelashes from NYX cosmetics since they had their $1 sale.  I should have ordered more though .:sad face:.  I also ordered Urban Decay’s Original Sin Primer Potion Duo from Ulta Cosmetics (I had a 20% off coupon for it).  Both my lashes and the Urban Decay Primer came today.  I was EXCITED!!! I LOVE getting packages.  This week, I also received my Graftobian HD Creme Foundation Palette from Camera Ready Cosmetics.  

If you didn’t order anything while NYX was having their sale, you definitely missed out! 

Urban Decay’s Original Sin Eyeshadow Primer Potion Duo

Urban Decay’s Original Sin Eyeshadow Primer Potion Duo raves to be “The best in the industry!”  It’s claims are that it will give you more vibrant color, all-day wear, and absolutely NO creasing.  
The Original Primer Potion dries invisibly, while the Sin dries to a metallic, champagne color (shown in picture).  I haven’t tried them yet since I received them today, but I’ll definitely do a review on them in the near future.  

Graftobian HD Creme Foundation Palette
18 Warm Shades in one palette (comparison chart).  It’s great for MUA’s, especially if you work on people of different ethnic backgrounds and shades.  The packaging is light & convenient.  The palette also has a mirror.  Palettes are refillable.

Over the past week I purchased a few items, such as the 120 Palette 2nd Edition, Urban Decay’s Primer Potion Duo, eyelashes from NYX, and the Graftobian HD Cream Foundation palette.  That means more reviews, pics etc. I’ll probably post something on youtube too :o)
