Beauty on a Budget: Physicians Formula Bamboo Wear Bambuki Brush Review

Hey loves!

So, I totally have a thing for mega size kabuki brushes even though I don’t technically embrace the world of bronzer.  I mean when you think of a massive kabuki you likely associate it with bronzing powder right?

Yea well, the Muse’s mentality differs on occasion.

I recently purchased the Physicians Formula Bamboo Wear Brush because I was all about, “OMG what a fabulously big old brush to dust on powder for Summer!”  and than I was like, “ZOMG how fab for blush?”  Don’t worry the second though was quickly erased from my head considering how heavy handed I am with blush already…seriously?  Big old kabuki+heavy hand=OOOOOO no she didn’t use that much blush!

Anyway….

I wanted the Physcians Formula Bamboo Wear Bambuki Brush ANYWAY! So I purchased it for a mere $4 bucks.

Musings of the Day: Have You Hit Pan?

Musings Pan

Ahhh the voyage of hitting pan. I don’t think I’ve actually taken the full trip myself. Hitting pan on any cosmetic is probably pretty much a myth around these parts and if I ever did hit pan it would probably be a super legendary feat.

Wanna muse hitting pan with me?

Have you hit pan on any of your favorite powders, shadows, or other products?

Not so much?

Jump ahead to hear about a product I recently hit pan on!

This is epic!

Mai Couture Blush Papier

Mai Couture Blush Papier 2

Ahhh the joys of blush paper. Did I every tell you about my adventure with the Mary Kate and Ashley Blush On the Go Make Up Sheets? You seriously need to read back on that, happy days!

What the hell is a blush paper anyway?

Well, as per the name, it’s exactly that, a blush on paper or in paper format. The blush is on a sheet of thin paper and can be rubbed or blended on to cheeks. Pretty nifty eh? And probably not really the traditional way of applying blush is it?

I’ve tried blush sheets before and contrary to what you might be thinking they are kinda nifty. Flirt makes ‘em too but those I have yet to try…

Anyway!

I came across a super elegant blushing paper that floored me recently.

Check out Mai Couture Blush Papier after the jump!
