Read on to see more about 2 of my every day staples, the brushes I was already yearning for and 2 great new products!
This set includes a huge tube of this concealer! I have a 0.28 ounce tube that I've been using constantly for almost a year, and I still have quite a bit in there. This tube is a full 1 ounce!
On one end of this brush you'll find a small-ish foundation brush, perfect for applying foundation and buffing it out (see how I apply my foundation for more info). It is just a little bit smaller than my other foundation brushes, so it works great in smaller areas like around my nose. The other end is smaller and slightly more pointed, and it is perfect for applying and buffing out my concealer. I haven't used to put the concealer on, instead I've been patting on the concealer with a finger, then using this brush to buff in small circles. Definitely an improvement over a bare finger!
This product is pretty hard to take pictures of, this was the most accurate I could get the color to look. It's a champagne color with a bit of a pink tint, and there is very subtle shimmer that is so subtle my camera didn't want to focus with my macro lens and on macro mode! (It makes me think I really do want to upgrade my dSLR, but it seems to do macro really well on other things... not sure what the deal was here.)
You can see in the swatch, where I applied it pretty heavily, that this is a light and shimmery highlighter. The Pointed Precision Complexion brush works pretty well with it, though I also have had great luck with my fingers. I'm not sure I like it any better than the powder version, I really like them both!
I mostly use this brush with the Powder Luminizer, it is perfect for applying highlighter to my upper cheekbone, my forehead, down my nose and to my chin. It hits just enough area without spreading the subtle shimmer too far. It's also great for concealer and I want to try it out with foundation as well, I have a suspicion that it will be great around my nose and under my eyes.
This pencil is pretty amazing. It is the ashy brown in between shade that seems to work for just about any hair color. I love that it is an automatic pencil (I am getting so tired of sharpening things), and it is super tiny/skinny, so it makes very small marks that look very natural. I use it almost every day to fill in my brows and then I run the spooly brush from the other end over everything to blend it in. Brows in 30 seconds!
This is another of those "changes to a color just for you" products, except this one is in a lip gloss form. It comes with a felted wand and applies as a barely pink gloss without any taste or stickiness. Over the next few minutes it deepens quite a bit (it's about 1/3 of the way there here, all of my pics of the gloss on my lips turned out blurry but you can see the type of pink it is). I have the gloss in Je Ne Sais Quoi, but there are other colors as well.
The color stains your lips a bit and it does last for hours. It's a super easy way to get some color on your lips while on the go.
This set is a steal, and it is available today only on QVC. The individual products will all still be sold, but not in this set and not for the amazing price.
