elf beautifully bare BLENDING BRUSH | Review

Image
Keep reading if you want to know why I'm obsessed with this brush... I picked mine up for $6 at Target, but this brush is also available online. Back of the sleeve brush comes in. Know that this brush is synthetic, and can be used with any medium of product (powder, liquid, etc.).
Very very softBlends any product in wonderfullySurprisingly easy to clean, like claims suggest, due to soft but not overly densePerfect size and shape for a multitude of uses, my favorite being to contour Overall, If you see this brush in-store pick one (or more!) up, and if you're planning an elf order online be sure to add it to your cart! This is not sponsored or anything; I just really love this brush.

Wet N Wild coloricon OMBRE BLUSH | In a Purple Haze | Review & Swatch

Silky-smooth formula blends seamlessly for buildable color. Use as a blush or even as a shadow for a fun pop of color." Main ingredient is talc Always make sure the product is sealed when purchasing Very light in colorNot buildable in intensityNot quite dark enough for a blushOn my skin tone too dark for highlight, but could work for that Can be used as a pale shimmer eyeshadowVery smooth due to talc and dimethicone in the productNot harsh glitterThere are other shades in this line, and they may work better as a true blush Overall, This product looks beautiful in the pan, but does show up a bit lighter when swatched and almost not at all on the face. I would recommend if you are looking for a soft purple highlight but …

PUR Glow Together Bronzer | Review & Swatches

Another PUR cosmetics review today! This bronzer retails for $34 (PUR, ULTA) and is in partner with Action Against Hunger (an organization that provides food, safe drinking water, and sanitation to people in need). Spoiler: this is actually a good bronzer, and not just for a good cause. Also, disclaimer: this product was sent to me for review, but my opinion is honest as always.  Lovely packaging, as sleek as possible for a jumbo bronzer "Give Back. Glow Forward." Jumbo Bronzer = 0.60 oz / 17 g "With three matte and three shimmer shades, the blendable, jumbo palette is perfect for all skin tones whether you want to look like a bronzed goddess or just back from vacation."

Can be used to contour. Blend onto neck, decollete and body with a body brush for a just-back-from-t…
