One of my Black Friday purchases was the Zoeva Premiere collection. Every year Zoeva has a great 25% off everything deal on their official website, so come Black Friday I watch their website like a hawk. And I found this collection. It features a small brush set, 3 of Zoeva’s new lip crayons, a face palette and an eyeshadow palette. Let’s have a look.Read more

When Essence renewed their line for spring/ summer 2018, the brand also launched a bunch of new makeup tools. Their entire range of brushes has been updated and I found a few in the new range that I liked and that I decided to try. How did I fare with these new Essence makeup tools?

My only Black Friday purchase? The Zoeva Opulence Collection. Like last year, they were doing 20% off again on their entire website. Last year that meant my purchasing the Plaisir Box, this year that meant purchasing the Opulence collection including the eyeshadow palette, face palette and a 10 piece brush set.

I am pretty true to my makeup brushes. I don’t often try new ones and the ones I use, I have usually used for years. Makeup brushes can also be expensive, but if you take proper care of them, they can last a life time. It is one of those areas where most people will tell you to invest in when you start your makeup journey. But as expensive as makeup brushes can get, lo and behold, there is always a company that will come out with a cheaper dupe. That is the case with this brush set that I found at my local Action. They are a clear dupe for the very expensive Artis brushes that had been intriguing me since I saw them. So how do they work?

For a while I had been looking for an affordable travel brush set. So that one, I always have a set ready to go and two, so I wouldn’t have to lug around my large brushes every single time. That is why I purchased the Boozy Cosmetics Rose Gold Sculpt & Blend brush set last summer. I have used it a few times since then and by now I have formed a good opinion of this make up brush set.

Finding affordable brushes is something I always like to do. In fact, most of the brushes I own are very affordable or were affordable when I bought them. Some of them have gone up in price by now, but still, I think that a good brush doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. When I was in the USA last summer, I knew I would be able to hit up Target: THE place to go if you’re looking for an affordable brush. I picked up a few from their store brand Up & Up, Sonia Kashuk & ELF and here’s what I think of them.
