Lush Review: Big Blue Bath Bomb.

So I love trying new things from Lush every time I go. The closest one to me is about an hour away so I don't go very often. I've decided that I'm going to review the products I try on here. Ive already tried so many that some of them may be repeats for me but not for you. Obviously if i'm buying them again tho I must like them. So the first one I'm going to review is the "Big Blue Bath Bomb".

Review: Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara.

So lately I've been having really bad luck trying new drugstore mascara's. Which I'm thinking about making a blog post about since there's so many I've hated! So when I picked up the new Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara needless to say I was very skeptical. I had bought the Benefit "They're Real" mascara which I LOVED but it seems since I ran out no mascara could compete. Until now... I have to say I love this mascara. Finally!.

Sigma Essential Brush Kit: Overview

I am so excited I finally got my hands on some Sigma brushes for Christmas! I got the 12 brush kit, without the brush roll because I already own one and didn't think it was necessary. Th kit was $89.00 (+ tax) at www.sigmabeauty.com.

I love these brushes. After all the talk that has been going around about these, I had to see what it was all about. I honestly don't know how i made it this long without owning these.  They are super soft and make applying makeup effortless. I own a couple MAC brushes and I can honestly say I find the quality of the sigma brushes better. They feel more sturdy and in my opinion they are better then any brush I have used. Instead of going to the drugstore or buying a different MAC brush here and there to build a collection like I was doing I wish i would have just purchased this kit from the start. It has all the "essential" brushes you could need!
