As you can tell, I have become a fan of MAKEUPBYTIFFANYD's video blogs that she does on her blog, YOUTUBE and facebook. She is always raving about Sigma brushes, and a couple of pay days ago, I broke down and got my very own set. Sure, it may be a little pricey to get professional makeup brushes, but if you use the monthly discount code (see below), get the brushes in the kits, and take care of them - they will last forever!
One, I can't believe I have gone this long without a professional set of makeup brushes. Two, I never would have guessed that the brushes you use made a difference in your makeup application, BUT THEY DO!
DRY'N SHAPE: The Dry'n Shape was designed to completely dry and shape your most dense brushes within 4 to 6 hours, guaranteed $29.00

THE ESSENTIAL KIT: The Sigma Beauty Essential Kit contains twelve professional quality brushes for the face and eyes. This kit features all of the brushes needed to create a complete look at any level of artistry. $89.00

SYNTHETIC SIGMAX DUO: **THIS WAS ON SALE & IS MY FAVORITE BRUSHES** The Synthetic Sigmax Duo contains two of our best-selling brushes (F82, F84) with classic black matte handles. The brushes in this collection feature our exclusive Sigmax filament, which allows flawless makeup application without absorption into the fibers. $24.00

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my brushes and TOTALLY recommend SIGMA BRUSHES to anyone who loves makeup!!

Ponds Facial Wipes

Last week I was clipping coupons and came across a coupon for Ponds' facial wipes. I have been using Olay's and thought it may be worth it to try Ponds, they were cheaper and voted Best of Beauty by Allure in 2010.

My routine:

I use the Morning Refresh in the morning (duh) when I get out of the shower. The little bumps on the cloth gently exfoliates my skin and there is so much product in the wipe that it cleans my face thoroughly and then I rinse with cold water.

At night, when I get ready for bed I use the Evening Soothe wipes. The smell of chamomile and white tea calms me as I get ready for bed and the wipe gets rid of all the makeup on my face.

I love these wipes and the fact that they are cheaper then other facial wipes is a plus. Look for coupons in your weekly paper and try them out. I'm sure you will love them too.

All About Brows

My favorite video-blogger Makeup By Tiffany D posted a new video about brows, so I thought I would put my two cents in too.

I have tried many different brow pencils and am thinking I might have to try the one Tiffany mentions in this video and see how it goes. THE REVLON BROW FANTASY

Two days ago when I went to Walmart I picked up the new Maybelline's Brow pencil. I liked it a lot, but after 2 uses, I used up all of the product. WHAT A RIP OFF!!! For $6.00 + dollars all I got was around 2 uses. Needless to say, I WILL NEVER USE THAT PRODUCT AGAIN AND WILL TELL EVERYONE TO NOT WASTE THEIR MONEY!!!

One of the things I have always received compliments on is my brows. I am very religious about my brows and I hope this post has been helpful. I have been using the AVON Glimmersticks Taupe brow pencil for a long time and have found that it has given me the best results.

**UPDATE: I tried the Revlon Brow Fantasy and thought it was a "good" product. I still like the natural effect I get with Avon's brow pencil, but I do like the gel you get with Revlon's.

Walking Tacos

I just saw this post on and felt compelled to share it with you guys.

It's a recipe for something called the "Walking Taco"

You take all your usual taco ingredients

-Beef with Taco seasoning




and add them to a small bag of Fritos....and VOILA! You have a WALKING TACO!

How amazing does that sound?? YUMMY! Also, what a great idea for parties.

LUSH Easter Bath Time Motivation

LUSH has their Easter products online and I can't wait to try them out.

I have yet to go to the store and see all of the cool products, but I am becoming more and more eager to check them out. The Immaculate Egg-ception's look like a lot of fun.

I recently heard of this store from one of my favorite makeup-istas MakeupbyTiffanyD
and I am very curious to try their products.

After examining their items via their website... I think I may have to make a trip to the mall on my days off this weekend.

Maybeline Spring 2012 Nail Colors

Love the new Spring 2012 Maybeline nail colors. Last night while I was at Smiths I happened to run across Maybeline's display and couldn't help but get two of these beautiful colors...and at $3.29 each, I may have to go back and get more.

Michelle Williams Hair

I was looking on today and saw a recent picture of Michelle Williams.

I am IN LOVE her short hair. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I wish I had her cute and tiny body so I could get a pixie cut just like hers.

Check out my crafts. They make a great gift!!!
