I had another weekend in the house thanks to a weekend full of events throughout the city; particularly, around my neighborhood. Unfortunately, despite the very pleasant weather, I was not in the mood to deal with any the crowds and traffic that comes with such events. However, things eventually died down, which gave me enough time to go wander around some stores. Therefore, here is the latest addition of WEEKEND BEAUTY BUYS!
The first item I picked up was one that I’ve been eying and itching to buy and try and that’s Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel. Every time I would go to Target, I would put it my cart before ultimately putting it back before checkout. I decided that I needed go ahead and do a buy and try. Since buying it, I’ve already used it. I think I’m going to write a review about this. So, look out for that.
The next thing I picked up Maybelline’s Pumped Up Colossal Mascara. All the mascara I had was dried up and needed to land in the nearest garbage can. So, I decided to pick up this up while investigating the makeup aisle at Walgreens. Sidenote: I wish I had naturally thick and long lashes and I needed to do was swipe a couple of clear mascara. Eh..what can you do.
Finally, ELF Eyebrow Kit caught my attention and I decided to buy it. As of this moment, I’m not sold on it, but I think I need to play around with it more. Fingers crossed, because I’ve heard fairly good things about this kit.
She’s BBAAACCKK! Yes, in-house beauty junkie, Beautylishus is back with two reviews on two different brush cleaners; Essence of Beauty Brush Cleaner and ELF Brush Cleaner. Keep reading to see her opinions!
Essence of Beauty Brush Cleanser: I’m a Essence of Beauty product fan so when I saw their brush cleaner on the wall I just had to try it! However, I was a tad bit apprehensive because the price was $10.00 for a drugstore brand, but I just sucked up my frugality and went ahead and bought it. When it was time to actually test the product I had hopes that it would be a good quick clean process but I was mistaken. The cleaner did clean the brush, but it wasn’t as fast drying as I would have hoped. The brush smell isn’t very pretty. Somewhat on the strong side. Think of a mixture between a flowery perfume and bleach and that’s what the smell is similar too. The thing that I really did like about this product is how there was no trace of makeup left in the brush. It completely clean and cleared out my eyeshadow brush fully pigmented with mac’s chrome yellow shadow! This product is a pretty okay product to just have, but if I were to skip it during checkout, I most definitely would.
ELF Brush Cleaner: When I received this product in the mail, I didn’t think too much of it because its made by the budget $1 cosmetic company ELF. after realizing that it was apart of their “pro” line, I became reeeeeeally excited because their black label “pro” items have yet to fail me. This cleanser is a must have because it not only smells good but by the time you are finished cleaning (by brushing the bristles back and forth across a dry fabric) it dry and ready to be used. It also left no trace of color. It’s quick drying,good smelling inexpensive product! This officially stays in my kit. You should have it in your stash also!
