So I recently purchased one product/two brushes that I am totally loving. The product I purchased is the new Bare Minerals READY eyeshadow duo in The Top Shelf. So I have a lot of Bare Minerals eyeshadows in their powder form. I am not a huge fan of applying eyeshadow in general as I feel like its too much of effort for me. BUT, after a lot of consideration, I decided I had to try out their new pressed shadows, and let me say that they are AMAZING! So they are pressed with some sea-nutritive complex and have good skin care benefits too apparently. So the duo I got is called The Top Shelf. The shade on the right is called Mixologist. This is a light bronze color that has a little bit of a sheen to it. The one not the right is called Cognac which is nice Champagne color. These are perfect for any skin tone.. but I would prefer to use them on some tan skin color so the color can really pop. But, the color payoff on these is just wonderful. You just really need a little to get nice application. This is worth $20. They have quads as well which are $30. I would definitely recommend checking these out, as they are definitely worth it. You can get these at Ulta, Sephora, or any of the the Bare Escentuals boutiques.
So I want to review the Real Techniques brushes I purchased. For the those of you who watch the Pixiwoo channel, Samantha Chapman designed these brushes. Even Tanya Burr from Pixi2woo uses these as well. They are made of taklon. So the pink one is called the stippling brush. This is a completely multi-tasking brush. You can put on liquid foundation, or cream blush, and it blends the product really nice. The one on the bottom is called the powder brush. I use the one on the bottom for mineral makeup and is good for applying bronzer as it has a light hand. I definitely want to go get the other brushes in her collection. I purchased these in Ulta and each one I think is about $8, so well worth the money!

First off, I am so sorry that I do not blog that regularly like I should be doing. Sometimes, I just put it off then I realize, whoops, I never finished that post. But today, I just wanted to talk to you about this new eyeliner that I picked up. It's by Bare Escentuals and it's from their new waterproof collection. I picked the color 11 AM up at a preview event they had sometime in April. But, this color is a lovely moss green. And, the best part is it makes your eyes pop! ;) I have brown eyes so this makes my eyes like a really nice light shade of brown. It is very long wearing,and is much like Urban Decays 24/7 pencils, except with better ingredients. This one costs $15.It is a pencil, so you would have to sharpen it.
So, this is what the pencil looks like, but the one in the picture is a different color. I couldn't find a picture that would give you the right color. But, I am really excited to pick up the other colors that they have. I really like these and would definitely repurchase.
