RIP Angel

I would just like to take the time and say RIP to Talia Joy. She fought hard and ended her battle with cancer at 11:22 am.

Prayers go out to her family and in the hopes we can fight to end cancer one day. Talia was an inspiration and such a sweetheart with so much spunk and excitement for the beauty community.

Let’s all take a moment and remember this beautiful angel. I think Talia would definitely agree with my closing today. :0)

Review: E.L.F. Jumbo Eye Pencils

20130707-125447.jpg

Hi all,

So I have another review for you, well sort of review/first impression and this time it’s for the E.L.F Jumbo eye pencils. I’m going to assume that these are suppose to be like the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils only these are retractable and they are a bit fatter than the NYX pencils.

Now pigmentation is good. Some are better than others. They glide on smooth. The ones I picked up were a dark blue color called Like A Boss and a black color called Midnight Rendezvous.

Target was having a sale and these are originally $2 but I picked them up for $1.40 each.

The color payoff of the pencils is pretty nice. The only thing I would say is the black has sparkles in it and I’m not a sparkle fan like that, I was looking for more of a plain black but oh well I guess I can use it as a base. The blue has no sparkle which I like.

They don’t really have staying power, like I put them on and let them sit and wiped my finger across them and they come off extremely easy so I would suggest setting it with possibly an eye primer and then a powder shadow on top of it. I’m going to try it out that way and see how that works and then do a full review but this is just kind of a first impression sort of thing lol. All in all for the price they seem pretty nice and should work well especially for beginners.

Have any of you tried these out? How do you like them? Until next time :0)

Review: Zote Soap Brush Cleaning

20130703-210954.jpg

Happy 4th doll! :0)

So I’ve been hearing about this Zote soap for awhile now and just never tried it. I usually wash my makeup brushes with either baby shampoo or a designated makeup brush cleaner. But I was out of those so I decided to give this soap a try. Oh boy was I surprised. :0)

It’s a large pink bar of soap and it’s used for a little bit of everything actually. Laundry soap, brush cleaner, etc.

You only need a small piece to clean your brushes. What I do is take the soap in one hand and wet my brush, then just run the brush in my hand across the soap until it’s soaps up and then rinse and repeat until the brush is clean.

The different in the brush and how quickly the soap cleans them is amazing. Out of everything I have used this is by far the best. The makeup just comes running out of the brush and is clean in minutes depending on how dirty the brush is and what product you used with it.

Over all I can say I will definitely be using this soap for my brushes from now on. It works amazing and my brushes come out clean and soft.

What do you use to clean your makeup brushes?
