Sephora Deluxe Manicure Kit Review

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

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.

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?
