Sephora Deluxe Manicure Kit Review

Sephora Deluxe Manicure Kit

I’m kinda in love with the new Sephora Deluxe Manicure Kit released for Holiday 2012. I think we’ve established how paranoid I am when it comes to germs, bacteria, etc…etc….! If you haven’t already firgured out how anal I am, I’m not willing to share more about it…my lips are sealed.

One thing that I’m really kinda squeamish about is mani and pedi tools. Every two weeks I head in for a manicure and a pedicure however, I admit, I do bring my own set of tools when I go. I’ve been to some really great nail spas in my day but I simply don’t love the idea of tools that have been used on someone else prior to me. Yak!

This little Deluxe Manicure Kit from Sephora has all the essentials I need to tote with me for a mani/pedi day in a cute snap close case.

If you’re as anal as I am you need it!

Gift Idea: By a Girl Beauty File Compartment Organizational Makeup Bag

Beauty File Compartment Organizational Makeup Bag

There are aspects of my life where I’m so very organized but my purse, tote, or handbag is not such a place. I tend to throw things into my bag nilly willy which creates a rather big old mess. I think part of this stems from when I’m in line and I pay for something and just kinda toss my change into my purse. This developed into a habit of me tossing everything into my bag and going.

This also results in me panicking because I think I lost my iPhone or my iPad or my Kindle or my wallet because I simply can’t find it amongst the mess of money, receipts, makeup, and other do-dads I have in my bag.

Perhaps the By a Girl Beauty File 9 Compartment Organizational Makeup Bag will help, at the very least, to organize my the makeup I carry with me.

Japonesque Safari Chic Mini Brush Set Review

Japonesque Safari Chic Mini Brush Set ($29.95) is a trio of mini synthetic brushes that are cruelty free. Typically synthetic brushes don’t always turn out great for me….for some reason I end up with ones that shed, have scratchy bristles, or just aren’t dense enough to apply makeup properly.

Japonesque Safari Chic Mini Brush Set Trio

However, on occasion I run into some that are worthy of some attention. Is the Japonesque Safari Chic Mini Brush Trio one of those great synthetic brush sets?
