Beauty on a Budget: Blend Shadows Out on the Cheap with the NYX Crease Brush

NYX Crease Brush 1

My fav brush is the MAC 224 but at nearly $30 for a single brush, well, this blending action doesn’t come cheap! If you’re currently looking for a budget alternative that will fit comfortably within the crease the NYX Crease Brush should do the trick cheaply!

Stila Dramatic Eye Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

I purchased the Stila Dramatic Eye Palette during the Stila Online Warehouse several weeks ago. Sadly, it’s now gone from the site however I have a funny feeling during their next sale it’ll pop up again however if you simply can’t wait to try it after my review I do suggest E-bay as I’ve seen a few valid sellers that have it available for as little as $10!

Stila Dramatic Eye Palette 1

The Dramatic Eye Palette is pretty much the same design as the $10 IT Girl Palette released a few months ago. It contains three shadows and the set I purchase also included a brush and eyeliner pencil. I can’t recall what I paid for the entire set but it was in the realms of $14 I think!?

Here’s a brief review and swatches if and when it pops back up at Stila.

Sephora has a mini selection of clear brushes available for $6! Quite a cute travel option!

Still stumped for beauty gifts? Brush sets are always a great one to go for! Particularly ones that are of high quality because I’m of a strong believer that makeup junkies can never have too many great brushes to apply their face with.

The Sephora Travel Clutch Brush Set is available in a festive red brush bag with a mirror and wristlet for toting around plus don’t forget the six brushes it hides away inside.

Coastal Scents Large Domed Kabuki and Domed Mini Kabuki Brush Review, Photos

Coastal Scents Large Domed Kabuki and Domed Mini Kabuki Brush 4

I’m totally a finger girl. Most everything in the base department gets blended on my face using my fingers. Concealer, primer, foundation, etc…it all gets smoothed on and blended out with my greatest tools, fingers.

Anyone else in the same boat?

You can have your brushes, sponges, and puffs…I got two fingers and they work just as great plus they didn’t cost me anything!

But….

On occasion I can be tempted to whip out a foundation or a concealer brush. For example, I prob couldn’t get through my daily prep without the E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush. Love that thing!

Recently, I decided to try out a new foundation and concealer brush from Coastal Scents.

Let’s take a look!
