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!

MAC Stylishly Yours Review, Swatches, Photos

MAC Stylishly Yours 1

I’ve been mucking around with MAC Stylishly Yours a little bit today. Out of MAC’s three upcoming color collections, this is probably the one I was the least excited about even though I tend to love bolder shades of color. With so many color stories coming out at one time I’m leaning towards loving on Peacocky and Cham Pale the most at this point.

How about you?

I only have two pieces from this collection to share but let’s have a peek anyway.

Jump!

MAC Cham Pale Eyeshadow Quad Caviar Dreams Review, Swatches, Photos

MAC Cham Pale Eyeshadow Quad Caviar Dreams 1

Anyone lemming the MAC Cham Pale Eyeshadow Quad in Caviar Dreams? It was one of the second things I wanted upon seeing the promo images (the first being the Paint Pots).

Two of the shades are actually in the general catalog but I don’t already own them so it worked out rather well.

Let’s look!

MAC Cham Pale 2

Anyone get a vibe of MAC Warm & Cozy from the new Cham Pale Color Collection? Of course, it’s warm and cozy with nipples included….love that promo image dontcha? Oh stop now, I got dozens of e-mails and comments after that promo shot was posted with, “OMG Muse I see her nipple” it was like we were all teenage boys for a sec there although I do comfortably channel my own teenage boy on more days than I care to count….We all got two of ‘em ourselves but for some odd reason we were fascinated that MAC went THERE. Think they’ll airbrush it out of the shot when it goes live in stores? Can’t have kids passing by a MAC store and saying, “Look mommy that lady has her nipple hanging out…” Heaven forbid!

No but seriously for some reason I get a bit of the Warm & Cozy vibe going on with Cham Pale this year perhaps that’s where some of my excitement stems from. I do believe, although paler and fairer, this collection might just sport a little something for every skin tone. I was playing around with a few pieces and so far I’m impressed and every so eager for its official launch on Boxing Day! ‘elloooooooooo MAC store Gift Certificate come to mama (yes, my friends and family can’t fool me, I know what I’m getting from Santa).

Go on now let’s peek at MAC Cham Pale and see what I thought!
