On My Radar- December 11, 2011
Yayyy new blog series! :)
This will sort of be like “things that I’m loving” but will (hopefully) be weekly and will include basically anything, not just makeup, because that’s more fun :) In addition I would LOVE to hear what is on YOUR radar! What things did you see/try/do/buy this week that you were really excited about???
Eve Pearl High Definition Dual Foundation
This foundation is amazing! I got it quite awhile ago, but hadn’t realized it’s awesomeness until this week. It blends seamlessly onto the skin, and because there are two shades, it’s easy to mix them to get your perfect shade, and even to add some subtle contouring and highlighting. Under the foundation is a separate compartment for the sponge too, so you don’t get your foundation gross!
New Express Jacket
I have never taken “fashion” style photos before, this is a first!
Also, I can’t remember the last time I had a head-to-toe photo taken, haha :)
This week I got my Black Friday order in from Express, and it came with this new jacket! It’s a belted military trench coat (or so the website says) and I was really happy with it :) I am really really trying to wear new styles and such, and I don’t think I’ve ever bought something brown, especially a jacket, so this was new for me :)
Faux Lash Dev X Faux Lashes
I am completely new to this company of luxury false lashes, and clearly I have been missing out! I got a surprise package from them on Saturday, and it included these babies-
The most amazing, full, mink-like lashes- that have big, beautiful, gunmetal studs on top. I haven’t applied them yet, but I did take one and put it on my lash line as if I was going to (sans-glue) and OMG- when you blink, the light catches different sides of the studs, and it’s SOOO cool. I can’t wait to rock these out!!
Sigma Extravaganza Complete Kit
If ever there were an ultimate brush kit, this would be it. It’s the Rolls Royce of brush kits. 29 brushes, in a CD Collection-like case that zips closed, made with high grade, high quality hair and fibres for the most luxurious makeup application.
Oh,and did I forget to mention that the ferrules are plated in 18k Gold??
I used these in my last tutorial, and I am just in love with the quality and look of them. I have also deep cleaned every single one, and they are shedding a LOT less than I have seen in previous Sigma brushes, which is another plus. These come out tomorrow, December 12. Fair warning though, they will not be cheap. This is a pretty luxury, awesome kit, and I don’t doubt that the price definitely will reflect that.
Okay, that’s all for this week! My sister is coming out to visit next week, so maybe we’ll do this as a two-parter and she can share some of her favorite things :)
