Great Blog Post from - Choose Your Tools, Synthetic vs. Natural brushes

I must admit, I've never given much thought to the difference in using natural or synthetic makeup brushes.  I've always decided on what brushes worked best for me by using the old "trial and error" method.  Ulta, one of my favorite retailers, has a great quick read on which type of brush to use for certain applications.  You can read the post here:  Choose Your Tools- Synthetic vs Natural Makeup Brushes

Milani Color Statement Lipstick

Milani has released a new line of lipsticks called Color Statement which I am so far impressed with.

Pigmentation is great, application is a breeze (even the matte colors!), and the lipsticks have a delicious watermelon scent (which is great if you aren't sensitive to scents).

So far, I've purchased 14-Rose Hip and 15-Hot Pink Rage and I am very happy, so happy that I'll be headed back to CVS to grab more colors.  Overall, these are a great drug store buy and the $5.29 price point makes these super affordable.

Should I Buy This??? New Sigma Spa Make Up Cleaning Glove

As much as I love the process of make up application, one of the resulting chores that I detest the most is cleaning my brushes.  There never seems to be an efficient way of getting a really good cleaning done.  I usually spend about 30 minutes to give my most used make up brushes a thorough deep cleaning.

Sigma Beauty has introduced a new silicon Make Up Cleaning Glove in their Sigma Spa line and I am really thinking about giving it a shot.  There's a demo video from Sigma that shows the glove in action.  The glove seems easy to use and it seems to get make up brushes really clean in a breeze.  I'm just not having the "warm and fuzzies" towards it's price tag of $39.  There is an available 10% off discount code of BASE2013.

I'm really leaning towards ignoring my inner frugal goddess (aka cheapskate) and giving this glove a shot.  What do you ladies think?
