Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes in Burnished Copper - Swatch, Review, and Photos

I Purchased This Affiliate Links 

Hey everyone!

I'll admit, I'm someone who loves owning high end/luxury makeup but my inner voice still struggles with actually exchanging that amount of money for the goods. Whenever I do decide to get something high-end/luxury, the process ends up being finding a product, ruminating over it for a period of time, before finally purchasing it. The latest brand I started looking at was Tom Ford. 

Everything about Tom Ford products screams "luxury" (with a hint of inaccessibility). The packaging is simple yet on brand and the products are definitely aspirational. I had been going back and forth over the Cream and Powder Eye Colors vs. the Cream Color for Eyes and finally decided on the Cream Color for Eyes in Burnished Copper.

Sonia Kashuk Makeup Brush Solid Bar Soap Cleanser Review

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

This is a quickie review on the Sonia Kashuk Makeup Brush Solid Bar Soap Cleanser.

I got this brush soap after Target rebranded Sonia Kashuk, got rid of their makeup products, and refocused on makeup brushes and accessories. Sonia Kashuk left her brand and sold it in October 2015 but it still felt like a big shift to see some of her great makeup products and original brushes go.

In my mind, I figured that a brush focused brand would have a great brush soap. This is a brush soap that contains goat's milk, olive oil, coconut oil and has a rosewater scent. It also contains a small scrubby pad to help you clean your brush. It sounded so good on paper but how did it actually fare in practice?

Details/Where to Purchase: The brush soap contains 1.5 oz for $9.00. You can get these at Target stores and Target.com

Packaging: The soap comes in a black plastic jar with a scrubbing pad included. You can stick the pad in your sink to help clean your brushes.

Review:

Sonia Kashuk says: "This Sonia Kashuk Brush Cleansing Solid Bar Soap is the ultimate brush refresher with mess free results. Maintains the shape and beauty of any type of brush while removing makeup buildup. Leaves brushes clean and freshly scented."

I don't find it very effective in cleaning my makeup brushes. I have to go back and do a second pass with the soap even when it comes to cleaning powder off of my eyeshadow brushes. I can understand it taking two tries to clean creams or liquid foundation from my dense synthetic brushes but not for something like powders off of my small eyeshadow brushes. Even using my hand soap has been more effective on my brushes. I'm not into working harder to get the job done compared to using something like a liquid brush cleaner.

Conclusion:

If you're in your local Target or online, I'd pass when it comes to buying this as a brush cleanser. There are lots of better alternatives out there (might I suggest the Benjabelle Organic Brush Shampoo? I'm not too fond of the scent but it's an effective cleanser).

Darling Girl Wonder Wand Cream Eyeshadows - Swatches, Review, and Photos

I Purchased This

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review on some indie cream eyeshadows, Darling Girl's Wonder Wand Cream Eyeshadows in Dragon's Sickness and Honey Cake. It's been a long while since I've reviewed anything from indie cosmetics brands, especially since I used to blog about them a lot years ago. I'm a little out of the loop when it comes to indie cosmetics but I hope to get back into them and share some of the great handcrafted products from brands like Darling Girl.

Hey everyone!

I feel like everyday we're hearing about more and more beauty products being released/launched by brands and it can get so overwhelming. I wanted to condense it down a bit and talk about a few newish makeup products that I want to get myself and a few makeup launches that I'm eh about. I guess the latter half of this post can serve as like an "anti-haul", though I don't promise that I might not try the products out later.

Keep reading to see which products I think might be worth buying and ones I am thinking about skipping.
