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.
I dunno if we should take fruit shaped skincare seriously. Should we?
It’s just a testimony to how different the Asian market is to our own. Cute, fruit shaped skincare is completely taken seriously dude! Why shouldn’t your moisturizer be shaped like a peach and your eye cream like an apple?
Fruit shaped skincare is actually a common packaging in the Eastern market particularly hand cream. Baviphat (I always think Baby Phat when I type that) is a Korean brand that takes a few notes from Benefit Cosmetics with their packaging, or hey, maybe Benefit takes notes from them? Although some of their color cosmetics have whimsical packaging (a la, you guested it, Benefit) their skincare borders on the edible, foody variety of the sphere.
Take a look at this Baviphat Mango Magic Brightening Mask and you’ll see what I mean.
