My love affair with e.l.f. and brushes in general continues, lol. I picked up a tinted lip balm and one of their Professional line brushes. Those, the white handled brushes, are $1 a piece, as opposed to the Studio line, which is now $3.04 each, and I'm excited to test this one out and see how it compares. I also ordered my first Sigma Beauty brush, the F86, or Tapered Kabuki. I have it on good authority that it is THE most amazing concealer/highlighter blender and since I'm really liking the Maybelline Dream Lumi highlighting concealer I picked up a couple weeks ago, I thought a tool to help it look and perform optimally was essential. I tell ya, these brushes are going to make me a full-on beauty addict more so than the actual makeup. What's wrong with me?
NOTWeekend is China Glaze Rare & Radiant. I loveloveLOOOOOVE the Peridot dupes, as you might know or remember, and all I can say is that it's a good thing they're not exactly in anymore because I'd still be on a mission to collect every iteration and posting about each one, thus boring the tar out of you all. But in this setting, one more shot won't hurt, right? I think I have three (four? no, three) different versions.
Baby Beau is just a fine cat specimen.
My Cult Nails It's A New Day set arrived today!! I can already tell you that the yellow is not going to be my shade but that peach is gorgeous and the pink.... The stamping plate came free and I wasn't planning on using it but it's specially made for Cult Nails. The lower middle image says "I joined the Cult and fell in", and that's pretty much the way it is here so I'll definitely be giving it a shot.
Question time! Feel free to answer as many or as few as you'd like.
Are you crushing on a brand at the moment? e.l.f., man!! I just think they're so great and so innovative, and their prices and packaging... what's not to love?! An e.l.f. haul is about as wallet-friendly as it gets, and the products are wonderful.
Peridot and its many clones-- yea or nay? Um, yay! Though I must admit, they were SO big a couple years ago that when I put Rare & Radiant on last night, I had this sneaking suspicion that it might look dated. (That is SO 2012!) But then I didn't care.
What's your favorite makeup brush? I currently have two, my e.l.f. small stipple brush and my Real Techniques powder brush, which I should review because it's changed the way I feel about setting powder. I should really just do a big brush post. Maybe I will.
Did you play any little league sports? Yes, t-ball for one year and soccer for four. I struck out at t-ball more than I connected so my little first grade self perceived that perhaps I should find another sport.
Are you paying attention to the NBA playoffs? Sort of. I'm hoping for Houston and Dallas to win their series and for someone in the west to win it all, because this side deserves it! We're so much better and it's not fair that the west has to beat each other up to go meet an east team who had a relative cakewalk. I despise the Blazers and the Spurs but if it comes to one of them against Miami, I may just have to suck it up and root for one of them, lol.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend ♥♥
