Hey guys! Here we go again… time to go through everything I’ve used up since the last time. Let’s jump in!
Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser Gentle Goat-Milk Cleansing Balm: I really like this. Better for eyeshadow brushes than cream brushes. For those I still felt I needed a deeper clean. Did leave my brushes feeling conditioned.
Bath & Body Works Unicorn Foam Berry Bliss Anti-Bacterial Foaming Mousse Hans Sanitizer: I got this from a friend as a gift. (Because it’s unicorn, of course!) And it was nice. My one disappointment was that the actual foam was just white. I really wanted it to be iridescent or something.
Swan Strengthening Nail Polish Remover: while I typically prefer non acetone removers, this one works okay.
Ricky’s NYC Ricky Care No-Snag Black and Clear Mini Elastics: these are perfect for the ends of braids. Stretch enough to work, and don’t break easily.
Ricky’s NYC Ricky Care No Slip Black Rubber Hair Ties: good and bad. They really don’t slip. But they do tend to grab a little too much to the hair, sometimes getting tangled and caught.
Ricky’s NYC Bobbies: I really like these bobby pins. They don’t slip out, and don’t get bent out of shape easily.
Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray: this is nice and light. Might be just a little too light for my thick hair. Smells nice.
Palladio Felt-Tip Eyeliner Pen in Jet Black: this was amazing. Blacker than hell. A super fine point.
Japonesque Rosewater Scent Makeup Brush Cleanser: perfect for quick cleaning. Maybe not for foundation brushes.
Burt’s Bees Baby Shampoo and Wash: I used this to clean brushes also. (Can you tell I’ve been on a brush cleaning frenzy lately?) I figured, gentle enough for baby, gentle enough for makeup brushes.
Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox Beauty Balm: great for days when I don’t need full coverage. Leaves a very nice, natural finish, with light to medium coverage.
Clio Professional Kill Black Waterproof Brush Liner: again, a really great liner. Very black, and doesn’t run.
Joico K-Pak Split End Mender: great for hiding those dreaded split ends between making it to the salon.
Floss Gloss Pro Nail Lacquer in Lean: soooo sad. I loved this color, but it got dry and clumpy on me. I know I could have picked up some nail polish thinner, but I usually find it’s never the same after.
NYX Professional Makeup Lip Liner in Mauve: do you think I liked this? I basically wore it down to a nub. It’s a great everyday go to color.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner: you know this is a holy grail product for a lot of people. And that title is well deserved. Really does stay all day!
And that’s it for now! See you all soon!
