I have a love hate relationship with dual ended brushes as I find them difficult to store without having them split on me. I also find they are a bit difficult to work with when applying makeup. Even though I do rant I also kinda dig buying a brush for $18 or so and getting two brushes instead of the one. That’s kinda nifty if I do say so myself.
Sephora has five new dual ended up brushes which I think are worthy of a look at if you don’t have a ton of brushes in your collection already and you’re looking to purchase a few this is a good deal. I’ve always had great experiences with Sephora brushes and I’m not doubting this new collection will be just as good as it’s regular brush line.
Here’s the offerings:
Kinda weird I was discussing the release of a new Clarisonic a few posts back and now Neutrogena Wave Duo pops on the scene.
Neutrogena Wave Duo is the new and improved Wave Cleaner from Neutrogena!
Click it to find out what’s new!
One of the main areas of interest on the new Neutrogena Wave Duo is it now has two speeds. One speed removes dirt, oil, and makeup where as the other speeds things up for a deep pore refining clean.
I was quite delighted with the original Wave when I tested it out several months ago so count me curious what the new version is like.
If you’re looking for a cheaper route and aren’t willing to dish out $200 for a cleaning brush this is something to consider.
You can get $3 off the Wave or $2 off the refill pads by visiting and signing up at the Neutrogena site if you’re interested.
As you may already know from reading my prior review on the Clarisonic
it didn’t turn out to be true love. I wanted to love the brush so much but it didn’t work well with my skin and I ended up returning it in the long run sadly.
I recently seen a youTuber reviewing the new Clarisonic PLUS Skin Care System with Spot Therapy and I was intrigued yet again by this brush.

Clarisonic PLUS Skin Care System with Spot Therapy has a few new features that do interest me. The brush now has three speeds and promises to remove six times more makeup. The brush also has a new spot therapy for the body which promises fewer dry patches and exfoliation for softer, smoother skin.
Technically if the brush had offered exfoliation for my face I’d probably be more excited. I’m vaguely curious and tempted to indulge just to see if the second round with Clarisonic will be a winner for me.

One of my all time favorite purchases recently is the Too Faced FlatBuki Brush. I held off purchasing this for a while since I have so many facial brushes (kabuki and otherwise) it seemed a terrible waste to get another. After seeing the brush in person, purchasing it, and finally using it, I find myself asking, “How did you ever get along without this little brush?”
Jump ahead for a brief review on the Too Faced Flatbuki Brush!
With a mere $12.50 price tag this is probably one of thee cheapest (and perhaps tiniest) brush in my collection. I think it’s well worth a check out and purchase for the price as it multitasks at applying bronzes, blushers, powders, and shimmers perfectly onto your face with little to no work on your part. A quick tap and swirl blends color seamlessly on my cheeks.
The Too Faced Flatbuki is actually a smaller version of the regular Too Faced Retractable Kabuki. Mind you this isn’t retractable nor does it have the standard kabuki look or feel. The brush is a flat head and not as dense or round as many other kabuki styles. It’s flat, very soft, and lacks the density of a regular kabuki style brush. The flat head allows it to fit nicely onto the contour of cheeks and allows for a nice sweeping motion for blush application. I personally wouldn’t attempt mineral foundation with this style brush but for using with blushes, bronzers, or other powder it’s a winner.
The brush is particularly great for brighter blushes or bronzers as the bristles pick up just the right amount of color without overdoing it. You can gradually build color up without going overboard. The brush feels incredible on my face as the bristles are incredible soft. It sports a cute pink metallic handle with a floral motif which is particularly flattering if you’re a lover of girly pink bits and bobs.
I simply adore the brush and recommend snagging one especially with it’s inexpensive price tag. The only thing that can be annoying is it’s not particularly travel friendly and can get easily get crushed in your makeup bag. But hey that goes for any style kabuki brush or brushes in general.
Great value for a sweet little multitasking brush that makes makeup application a snap.
Brushes. Brushes are so very important to makeup application. I have a slew of brushes since many I got in kits and of course I went a little buck wild purchasing a slew of MAC brushes when I first got into the brand.
Although I must confess…
Jump ahead to hear my beauty confession.
I haven’t washed mine in over a month. Oh my god I’m so ashamed of myself. Eep! I normally give them a proper wash with MAC Brush Cleaner at least every three weeks but after I went on holiday and came back it’s been well over a month since I cleaned them since I’ve been terribly busy. Indeed, a gross and possibly bacteria filled beauty confession.
I’ve sinned. Forgive me?
When was the last time you washed your brushes?
