Day 10: Favorite makeup brush?
Sigmas E35 tapered blending brush is tapered more towards the bottom which make the bristles nice and dense. This makes blending eyeshadow easy and effortless!
*I know I haven’t been very consistent with these but I will try my best to finish this out!

Often when depotting makeup or when dropping makeup, your powder products can look like this:
An easy fix:
Rubbing alcohol, a small jar, and a spoon!
Crush the broken eyeshadow or powder then mix in some alcohol in a small jar until it becomes a paste.
Pour it back into its original container and press it down with something flat.
The alcohol won’t change your makeup, just let it dry. You will have saved some money, and now your makeup is as good as almost new! It may look a little ugly, but at least you don’t have to buy a brand new eyeshadow.
For all you makeup shopaholics out there, here’s the best website ever for discounted high end makeup. Shared by makeupbox! If you follow her you can get a special discount code!
The Good News:
I discovered beflurt.com awhile ago while surfing for discount beauty sites and was blown away by some of the deals they have. (I did the math for you below just in case you were wondering what the deal was.)
MAC Marbleized 4-piece Lipglass Set @
4 X MAC Marbleized Lipglasses
That’s under $7.50 per gloss, when these usually cost $18 retail!
Instant Pin-up Set @
1 x Benefit Frenched Lipstick
1 x NYX Felt Tip Liner
The Benefit lipstick alone is usually $18, and you’re getting that and a liner for $11.
Glam Girl Set @
1 x Laura Mercier Paprika lipstick
1 x Laura Mercier Mint Snow shadow
1 x NYX Felt Tip Liner
Once again, the shadow costs $22 and the lipstick $24. You’re getting 3 items for $20. What is up with that??!
And the absolutely insane deal…
Haute Bronze Set @
US$50 US$11.50 **I’m getting this before it’s gone!**
1 x Fusion Beauty Limited Edition Micro-Collagen Lip Plump in Posh
1 x Too Faced Pure Bronze Powder in Golden Bronze
If you like lip plumpers, you’ll know LipFusion is the brand du jour among many makeup artists. While I’ve always been curious about the brand, the whopping US$36 price tag (SGD$45 in Sephora Singapore) for a tube of gloss is a major turn-off for me.
Well, this set includes a Too Faced Bronzer, and costs LESS than that $14 bronzer itself.
I didn’t realize how many different kinds of monthly subscription boxes there are! There are beauty boxes that you can choose your own product samples, boxes for going green, one for nails, baby stuff and even gourmet food! The link above is a list of all the subscription boxes in the U.S.
I have been having fun with these lately, like my birch box or glam bag. You probably think i’m wasting my money but there’s something about getting a present every month with little things just for you. It’s not for everyone, but if you’re interested the link above has a list of all the subscriptions so that you can see which one is right for you!
Have you ever tried a subscription box? Did you like it? Was it a waste?
