Sculpt Your Cheeks With NARS Contour Blush

 photo spring2014_narscontour001.jpg

Thanks to Kim Kardashian everyone is highlighting and contouring for the makeup gods. Now you can too! NARS has released a trio of new (and permanent) blushes that will highlight and contour a wide range of skin tones. They remind me of my Sleek Contour Kit but a little jazzier and, of course, more accessible for us stateside gals. I’m pretty set on contour powders at the moment but I can’t deny that these duos look pretty awesome. Take a look!

New MAC Additions!

Realistically, I have a new MAC addition to my collection like every week (LOL!) but these two additions are very special because they’re firsts! I’ve been obsessed with MAC ever since last year’s Glamour Daze collection but I’ve never hauled any of their face products or full sized brushes until now.

It seems like every time I turn around I’m falling in love with another Coastal Scents brush! After trying out their seriously impressive 22 brush set I hauled a few more brushes that are just as great! I didn’t own too many fluffy powder brushes so I opted to try the Classic Large Tapered Powder Brush. Such an excellent choice!

Holy cow I freakin’ love this palette! I wasn’t even planning on picking it up from Sephora but goodness I’m glad I did! I’m gathering the confidence to start doing makeup on others so I’ve been on the lookout for a nice concealer palette for concealing, correcting, highlighting and contouring. I definitely struck gold with this one!

Elf Studio Angled Blush Brush Review

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

I have quite the obsession with angled cheek brushes these days! Who can blame me? They’re great for just about everything! Highlighter, bronzer, contour, blush, everything! So when Elf finally released their version a few months ago I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one. I’ve had a pretty nice track record with Elf’s Studio line brushes so I was pretty sure I’d love it. And I most certainly do!

Coastal Scents 22 Brush Set Review Part One

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

I’ve had this brush set for quite some time now and I think I’m more than ready to give you guys the run down. If I had to sum up this set in just one word it would be: AMAZING! I was on the fence about purchasing this 22 brush set from Coastal Scents for a while because I wasn’t sure about the quality of their brushes but I couldn’t be happier with it. There’s a reason ladies rave about this set so much. It’s an investment! Not only do you get 22 lusciously soft brushes but they come packaged in a sturdy faux black leather case that holds more than enough brushes. You can even double the eye brushes in one slot and carry about 10-15 more slim brushes in the case with no extra bulk and no damage. The case itself is surprisingly pretty thin. Even with all 22 brushes inside it’s still a great size for travel and doesn’t take up a lot of space at all.
