My New Project!

I have a little project that I have been working on!  I will soon be opening my own online beauty boutique with some of my favorite things :)

We will be up an running soon, so in the meantime, check out our Facebook PAGE!

Thanks, more information to come!

Boots No7 Lipsticks By Poppy King

I actually had been trying to limit my makeup purchases lately, but I saw these at my local Target and I had to have them! 

I had actually been trying to purchase some Poppy King lipsticks, but they are frequently sold out online.  I thought I would give a couple of these a try. 

In the tube, these two colors look very similar.  The one of the right is No. 2 Power and the one on the left is No. 5 Intrigue.

On the left is No.2 Power and on the right is No. 7 Intrigue.
These lipsticks are fairly sheer.  They add color to the lips, but are not extremely pigmented.  They feel very hydrating.  They were priced at about $10 each.

I'm probably a little late on the bandwagon with these.  Did any of you pick some of these up?  What colors did you get?

Review: Real Techniques Brushes

This review is long overdue!  I have had these brushes for a very long time, but I just never got around to making this review.  Let's just say that I've really used these brushes and this is a really honest opinion!  Please click on these pictures for a larger  view.

Starter Set:  This set was somewhat disappointing for me.  But, one of my favorites from this set was the deluxe crease brush.  I actually think it's a bit big for my eyes, so I have been using this brush to buff in my under eye concealer. 

Core Collection:  I love the buffing brush as well as the contour brush!  These brushes have been very useful for both blush, bronzer and even setting powder. 
I really did not like the kabuki brush.  Let's be honest, I'm a hoarder.  I have many kabuki brushes and this one is just mediocre compared to my favorites.  Some of my favorite kabuki brushes include:  MAC, Sigma, Eco tools, and Everyday Minerals.

As you can see from the photos.  I apologize for the dark background.  These are old photos and I have since them developed a couple of more tricks to taking the perfect photo.  The fibers of this kabuki are "crinkled" and not straight.  I'm not sure if this was just the kabuki that I received, but I have not seen other of the real techniques brushes look like this.  The texture of these fibers make the brush stiff and uncomfortable as compared to the other brushes in her collection. 

Honestly, there are a couple of stand outs in this collection, but I don't love all of the brushes.
The actual quality of the brushes is great. The fibers are very soft and the handles are lightweight yet very sturdy.
They are really unique brushes. I really like the way that she color coded the brushes according to their purpose.
The price point is great. Not only can you find them on the website, but also carries this brushes both online and in store. They are affordable and are amazing quality for the price.
