Claudio Riaz Instant Smoke Brush

This is my bad purchase of the year. Like a victim of infomercials, I fell for the sales associate’s spiel about this “one step instant smokey eye brush that will save you time and create perfect eyes”. Yeah, sounds too good to be true, right? Except this wasn’t $19.99 after being discounted from $199.99 and […]

Paula Dorf Cruel Free Brushes

I am a serious serious snob when it comes to brushes. I only use Shu Uemura natural hair, nothing else compares and nothing else will do. So this is huge for me to recommend another kind of brush and not only that, synthetic ones! Yikes!!! But that’s how good these are. I tried these because […]

Prescriptives: The luxury of custom blend

Prescriptives make up was a favorite when I was in college but through the years had faded to the back of my mind as a fond memory. I still remember the gray compacts I used to carry around with me in the early ’90s, it was so modern and chic, the young and cool sibling […]

Smashbox Brush Cleaner

It’s really important to keep your makeup brushes clean. Dirty makeup brushes lead to germs and bacteria and makeup that just doesn’t look right because it has little bits of last weeks makeup stuck in it. I know that good, old soap and water will work fine to clean your brushes, but in my mind, […]
