thank you to the beautiful people who follow me and comment, you guys are encouraging me to start writing more! :):)
I bet you all are bored to death hearing about sigma brushes but this really is one of my favourite ones. I like it better than its MAC counterpart. Why? Because its a little bigger, softer and fluffier. I like its larger shape and its fluffiness because it is perfect to use for blush. I am so picky about blush brushes and have searched endlessly for a good blush brush..i just recently purchased the bobbi brown one and i dont even know if i like that one that much. However this one is nice, it fits perfectly on my cheek and makes it easy for me to apply the blush without it looking like a big weird streaky blob. I find that often with blush brushes they don't blend the product out nicely so it looks unblended and weird. This brush is just nice.. i really love it and i wish sigma would sell it as an individual brush so i can buy more. I actually just found out that http://www.allcosmeticswholesale.com/ are selling sigma brushes as well as their make-up line individually so i might just pick another one of these babies up :) go ahead..do it.. you know you want to ;)
This stuff is soo nice! First of all, it smells amazing! It has the nicest scent which lingers in your hair after it dries...mmmmmm. You get a pretty big bottle of this which will last you a good amount of time because you only need a drop or two for all your hair. This is made from argan oil, a natural oil from argan trees in morroco (hence the name). It also has a few silicones and stuff in it to smooth your hair. This stuff is awesome for your hair! Ever since my hairdresser recommended it i have been using it faithfully and it makes my hair so shiny and smooth. I'm also a little convinced that it has helped my hair grow a bit because it has prevented split ends so that my hair didn't break off - which it is prone to doing. that is a HUGE plus in my book since my hair has been the same length for the last like 4 years. this stuff is really good, i just use a drop or two in my hair when it is damp and i apply it through my hair, concentrating mainly on my ends. This is also great for people with extensions because it provides conditioning to the hair since extensions can often become dry and brittle. It smooths and detangles extensions while providing lots of shine and a wonderful scent. Definitely worth checking out!
This stuff is so good! I have really dry skin in the winter. Generally my skin type is dry but in the winter i have to moisturize - especially my legs or else they itch. I know, weird. What originally attracted me to this was the idea of 100% of the proceeds going to charity - i'm all about products that give money to a good cause. I'd rather spend $20 on Charity pot vs. $25 on Lush's Dream Cream knowing that some of the $20 from Charity Pot will go to a good cause. This moisturizer is really nice because the texture is so light but moisturizes nicely. It isn't sticky or heavy like some moisturizers that take ages to sink in. I'm an impatient person and I hate having to wait around for 10 minutes waiting for my moisturizer to dry. I like to be able to moisturize and put my clothes on and feel like the product has actually sunk into my skin in a comfortable way. I can't quite describe it but you know that heavy sticky feel of a lot of body creams? This one doesn't have that. Go buy a pot, give your skin a treat and know that you can feel good because you're doing a good thing for someone else too!
Kay, so this is one of MAC's most basic brushes and since I am a brush addict it would be assumed that this would be one of the first brushes I would have in my collection. But wrong..I actually didn't have this brush until Christmas. Why? Because i was convinced that i didn't need it. To me, it just looked like a plain flat shader brush and i had plenty of those from various brands. I just didnt want to spend $30 something dollars plus tax on a brush that was nothing special. Now? I want another one!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE this brush. I have more than one 217 and now I am convinced that I must get another 239!!! This brush is really really good. It is extremely soft and not hard or stiff like many of the craft store dupes for it (Loew Cornell Maxines mop i am talking to you). This brush is extremely versatile because it is so soft and slightly fluffy on the side you can even turn it on its side and use it for crease work. It works perfectly at patting shadow on my eyelid and fits so well on my eyelid (i don't have huge lid space). It is good for pigments and lining under the eye with the tip/edge, smudging out eyeliner with the tip/edge - such a great multitasker!!! I want more!!!!!
It looks like a small bottle but actually gives you 40 ml which is more than a normal MAC bottle of liquid foundation which usually gives you 30 ml or 1 ounce. This product lasts you a good amount of time, I use 3 pumps on my whole face (yes i like to overdo it a bit) and I still have a lot left. THIS ALSO SMELLS DIVINE. i love love love the smell! even my boyfriend, when i stuck this product under his nose to smell since he and everyone of my friends are subjected to my endless obsession with beauty products and everything related, liked the smell and commented that it smelled really nice! You can put it under your moisturizer or use it as your moisturizer at night - i often just use it as my nighttime moisturizer, unless i am wearing a self tanning moisturizer - i will apply it under :)
