Dupe found for the Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove

ImageSince I’ve amassed a fairly decent size makeup brush collection, I’ve been really trying to take care of them. I try to spot clean them (when I remember lol), but every couple of weeks they go in for a major cleaning.

I found the Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove on Sigma’s website and it looks like an ingenious idea! It is essentially a silicone style mitt resembling that of an oven mitt. It’s double sided with each side featuring different textures for which you are supposed to use for different cleaning processes for various size brushes. Sounds all good and dandy, huh? Well, I was really tempted to get one, it seems it would do a better job at deeply cleaning the brushes than my fingers, but at the price tag of $35 I just couldn’t bring myself to do it before further research.

Review: Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum

Hi ladies!

ImageWe all are in the habit of just swiping on mascara, maybe adding an extra coat to get that length and volume we crave. While some people are blessed with luscious lashes, I for one, am so happy I stumbled across the Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum. I actually have this for about two years, and while I don’t use it everyday, when I do you it I’m like I should use this everyday lol!

One swipe of this hg primer is miraculous! If I sound over-enthusiastic it’s because I am lol!

When I use this under my regular mascara and it literally add loads of length and volume. I think the science behind it is that this coats the lashes and when you use the real mascara, it has this extra layer to adhere to. It does not add any clumps.

Review: Mario Badescu Caviar Night Cream

Hi! I hope everyone is staying safe and warm!

ImageDuring the dry, winter months my skin tends to get very dry. It is generally on the dry side, ironically especially in the T-zone where many people have oily spots. In the past, I’ve lathered my face with Baby oil (the gel version which is awesome, and while it feels so hydrating, it doesn’t seem to have long term effects). The same with moisturizers I’ve tried.

There is a moisturizer I ordered which I should be getting any day now, called Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion which I’ve heard great things about and am excited to try.

What I have been using though for a few months now is the Mario Badescu Caviar Night Cream. It can be purchased at Nordstrom, and his whole line of skin care products are very affordable. I have a few others from his line which are ok, but I really love this cream. It’s very thick, smoother than a paste, but similar in that if the tub is turned upside down, it wouldn’t budge.

Following my age-old dream…

Hi Everyone!

So the other day I got hooked on a dream I’ve had forever-to learn how to play the guitar!Image

I’ve never played an instrument (I wish they would have given us the option at school), but have always loved music. Particularly the piano and even more so the guitar. I’ve has these thoughts of attempting but they come and go.

We recently watched the Disney movie Frozen, and my girls are obsessed with it! They love to sing Do you wanna build a snowman and Let it go from the movie. I confess, I do too. So while we were belting it out, I thought guitar accompanying it would be so amazing. I know to be able to play that is a long time away, but you’ve got to start somewhere, right?
