Lumiere Travel Brush Set

I got my Lumiere travel brish set today. It seems smaller to me than what I imagined, but perfect for my Walt Disney World Trips (I am also a huge WDW addict, check out the DIS boards if you like visiting the “mouse” too). I imagine that I will get the most use out of the powder brush, blush brush and crease brush.

Speaking of brushes, has anyone tried TKB’s new brushes? I would like to try the Goat Hair buffer. The price is really good at $2.75 (this is just the intro price, I think they will go up). Also their Kabuki is $3.50 (also intro price), this might be a good option for someone starting out, or as a gift (if you are trying to get someone else addicted LOL). I am really interested in the quality of these brushes.

I Love Mail!

p1010038.JPGYay, I finally got my EDM order in the mail today.
It seem like I have been waiting for EVAH! I took 2 weeks and 1 day, from the shipping date, to arrive. Usually, for me, it takes about a week. The only thing missing was the blush, I guess it was backordered. Oh well, now I have something else to look forward to in the mail.
I haven’t tried the tinted silk dust yet, or the concealer. I’m crossing my fingers that they aren’t too dark. They do look pretty close in darkness to the foundation though, so here’s hoping.

I have to say that my collection of leave-in hair products rivals my collection of MMU. I am constantly on the look out for the perfect gels, lotions and leave-ins. Specifically I’m looking for a defrizzing cream that has some hold to it. I thought that I’d try out a bottle of Sunsilk defrizz lotion. I can’t say that I’m too crazy about it. It’s sticky and makes my hair look a bit greasy, not a great look. Any recs?

I’m still sticking with OCM, but now my skin is breaking out a bit (almost a rash on my cheeks), not sure if it’s the OCM, Meow FF, or just hormones? I’m hoping it’s hormones because I really like Meow FF and OCM.

Now the only thing I’m waiting for in the mail now is my back-ordered blush from EDM and my Lumiere brush set. I’m trying for a bit of a no-buy but now that my skin is going a bit crazy GOW is looking pretty good (hmmmm, here’s my imaginary cart; GoW Vegetarian Azulene Base Cream, GoW Takrai Lemongrass Cleanser, GoW Cobalt Foaming Cleanser, Carrot Seed Oil, Carrot Seed Hydrosol).

Oh My Goodness!!

Did anyone elso go into a complete panic last night when Lumiere’s website went down? Just as I was hitting the “Pay” button the site crashed, my DBF was looking over my shoulder saying “Maybe it’s a sign that you shouldn’t spend any more money on makeup.” What I said:”Maybe it’s a sign that I need to reavaluate my purchases to make sure I didn’t miss anything.” 😉
I didn’t buy much, I already have way more foundation that I’ll ever need in my entire life. I did end up buying the 9pc brush set I hope it’s good, I was caught between buying that and just a blush brush, as I really don’t need any of the other brushes. But it does come with a cute case (that’s reason enough for me!).

I got my Meow order today, Munchkin in frisky Sphynx FF and a few samples. I haven’t had the chance to try it yet. I’ll probably try it tommorrow.

I also finally tried my MAD eyeshadow samples, and I must say that their eyeshadows have the best colour payoff that I’ve seen so far! Definately a winner in my books, if I didn’t have so many darn TKB micas I’d be placing another order. I wonder how they get the colours to be so intense, mine end up look a bit dull (mmm, i mean neutral).

I’m still using the Oil Cleansing Method. This is definately my HG nightime cleanser! It seems to stop my zits from appearing I’ll see one starting to form and before it even appears it’s gone. I’ve also been using pure unrefined Shea butter as my nightime moisturizer it works great, although it’s a bit greasy, it smells incredible.
