Review Mary Kay Makeup Brush Cleaner

IMG_20150102_163554012

The Mary Kay brush cleaner is pretty good. It smells nice and isn’t too overpowering like some that I have tried. Others I have tried are more like a soap, but this cleanser is more like an oil almost. It’s not messy at all and makes cleaning your brushes so much easier!

To use it you wet the brush with the spray. I recommend doing this over the sink so it doesn’t get everywhere. You take a tissue and wipe the brush on it until it’s clean. It works really well, I was skeptical, but then I saw the colors coming off the brushes. Once it’s clean you just shape it up and lay it out to dry like the first round I cleaned in the picture. It’s one of the best brush cleaners I’ve used, and I will probably buy more when I run out, but I always like trying new things so you never know.

Happy Pantone Color of the New Year!! Palette Review and Look

10420717_10152545459100439_2092404342_o

Hi, hello, and Happy New Year!

I know bloggers are super committed to blogging everyday right now. Maybe it was their resolution, maybe they just are excited to have a fresh start. For me, it’s a little of both. I was terrible at keeping up with my beauty blog in 2014 and I don’t want this year to be like that. If I write them all on Sundays and schedule them through the week then it should be easy to maintain. That being said, let’s look at my Christmas present from my sister!

THE SEPHORA/PANTONE UNIVERSE COLOR OF THE MONTH PALETTE 

IMG_20150102_194437227

The palette has lots of different colors and four different finishes! Also if you are more visual, you can watch the first impressions and swatches video on my channel here!

There are four different finishes; matte, satin, metallic, and glitter. The glitter and metallic ones will give a lot of fall out so you have to be careful with them. The satins are nice and most of them are really pigmented. The mattes are my favorite, I always gravitate towards matte shadows and the Marsala Matte is so pretty.

The mattes are all very pigmented. I am drawn to the colors Hot Chocolate which is a rich brown and Dusty Olive which is an olive green as the name suggests. In the metallics I love Butterrum which is a really pretty gold color.

THE STARS OF THE SHOW

There they are in the middle of the palette. These are the Marsala shadows.

TL – Marsala Matte  TR -Marsala Satin BL – Marsala Metallic BR – Marsala Glitter

I love the versatility of the palette and I love that you can create so many looks with it. The Marsala Matte is definitely a color I will wear a lot this year. I think that it can be an every day color when worn correctly. I am impressed with the overall quality of the palette. Hopefully once I get through the top layer of the glitter shadows, there won’t be as much fall out.

Tell me in the comments what you think about the Sephora Pantone COTY Palette and if you will be purchasing it.

Your Face Smells Like Nutmeg and It’s Clean

cropped-10420717_10152545459100439_2092404342_o11.jpg

I’m all about trying natural remedies and scrubs for my skin so I thought I would work on clearing out my pores for the new year. Weird, maybe, but I thought what the heck. I hate blackheads, and googled some natural ways to clear them up.

I came upon Milk and Nutmeg

The instructions said to mix the two until they made a paste  you could put onto your face as a scrub.

It never really made a paste, but I went with it. I put it on and rubbed it on my skin all over for three minutes. It smelled strong, I’m not a huge fan of nutmeg on its own. I washed it all off my face and it felt soft. At a glance it did seem like my pores were clearer.

I followed the treatment with Witch Hazel. Since I opened up my pores with the scrub I wanted to go ahead and use it as a toner.

I also wanted a light moisturizer so I used my Cetaphil all over.

In conclusion, I think the nutmeg/milk combo worked. I wasted a lot of milk. If you do this I suggest just letting a tiny bit coat the bottom of the bowl and not using as much as I did. Otherwise I think this is a nice gentle scrub that can be made from your left over pumpkin pie ingredients and some milk.

Let me know if you try it.
