You NEED: E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush

E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush

I’m the type that has applied concealer using my fingers for years and years and years. I’ve never met a concealer brush I like to use. Most have thin bristles and don’t really do very much to get concealer into place.

Essence Breaking Dawn Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Essence Breaking Dawn Lipgloss

Beauty budget brand, Essence, has created a Twilight Breaking Dawn 2 Collection to celebrate the release of the movie. This isn’t the first time Essence has embraced Twilight as they have had another collection inspired by the film.

I generally like Essence and although some of my fandom has cooled when it comes to Twilight I still like the overall idea of this collection. It’ll be a little tricky to locate as Ulta is the only US store I know of that sells Essence but keep an eye out for it in store.

I went to Ulta this weekend and they sadly, didn’t have the collection. I have my eye on the bright red blush that was released with the collection.

My other lemming? The Breaking Dawn Lipgloss which I was lucky enough to get a sample of!
