Napoleon Perdis Luxe Ultimate Brush Collection Review

Napoleon Perdis Luxe Ultimate Brush Collection 001

It’s a sea of Holiday Brush Sets out there.

It’s possibly the best time of the year to make serious purchases to add to your personal brush stash. Buying single brushes from brands such as MAC can become a costly experience that’s why the Holidays are such a great time to stock up because you can get so much more for less.

Almost all high and mid-range brands have 3, 5, 10, or more brushes available in a set. Sometimes brushes are full size if you’re lucky but in most cases they are normally mini. Mmm sometimes they do suffer quality problems if they are mini but I think it’s safe to say in many cases I’ve always been plenty pleased with sets I’ve purchased during the Holidays.

This is particularly the case when you’re looking at a five piece set for say $50. That puts you at $10 per a brush therefore knocking down the price on that $35 full size blending brush to a mere $10 for the mini version. Sweet right?

Napoleon Perdis is always kind enough to introduce his Holiday Brush Sets in full size version. Score!

Take a look at one of his new Luxe Brush Collection Sets for Holiday 2011.

Products included in the sets also become available in the general catalog or other sets which is the lead in for this post.

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Taster Trio 001

I love a good deal on makeup. There’s nothing as satisfying as finding a good sale on makeup, I’d say it’s comparable to winning the lottery.

Makeup junkies get it.

You won’t believe me when I tell you the price on the new Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Taster Trio.

Jesse’s Girl Eye Color Collection 9 Pan Eye Shadow Compact Review, Swatches, Photos

Jesses Girl Eye Color Collection 9 Pan Eye Shadow Compact 001

Money saving divas put your hands up.

I’ve always been a bit of a beauty snob but I started venturing into drugstore beauty around the same time I migrated to the WordPress Platform. I wanted Musings to be a place where you can find both high end, low end, and beauty abroad purchases. I wanted to bring variety to you guys and in doing so I ended up opening the door for myself as well because at one point I’d turn my nose up at budget beauty but I readily admit you can score a deal on occasion.

My latest beauty budget purchase is the new Jesse’s Girl Eye Color Collection Palettes.

Take a look!
