Lumiere Pre-buy arrived.

I received my Lumiere pre-buy brush yesterday. I ordered the large flat top brush as a Christmas present for a mineral-loving friend, who has no Lumiere brushes can you believe it, how did she live this long 🙂 !? (i’m glad I thought that well ahead, as I don’t see it listed on the website anymore, although it does seem that there are still a few pre-buy brushes still available including the retractable brush I’ve been eyeing). First impressions are that it seemed a bit smaller than I expected. It is supposed to be bigger than their last buffer brush, that one must have been pretty small though! The handle is a nice matte black, is substantial, and long. The bristles are very soft, but not as dense as my Coastal Scents badger brush. Unfortunately I didn’t get to try it out, as it’s a gift. But I will ask the recipient her opinion when she gets a chance to use it. So far my favourite flat top is the Coastal scents badger brush (and they have it in stock again! I might have to stock up)

I also recieved a free sample of Lumiere’s chashmere foundation in light-medium. This formulation feels super light on the skin. It’s really soft and seems to offer light to medium coverage. I’ve only sampled a swatch on my face, and have yet to wear a full face all day. I’ll give my full opinions when I get to try it out more (I don’t want to try it this close to all of the holiday parties just in case I get breakouts.)

Happy holidays!

Christmas list

Things sure have been busy in the Lovelygood household, so not much posting (unfortunately). Christmas is soon coming, and Santa is getting a looooong list from me. Here are some highlights for this year’s mineral makeup picks:
