ELF BRUSH SET: The Ultimate Face Brush Roll Set

Who doesn’t love a good makeup brush right? With the ELF Brush Set your face is literally all set! I have been an avid fan of ELF brushes for some time now. I recently did a blog post on my must have drugstore brushes (find it HERE) and ELF was of course featured.  In recent months ELF launched a whole bunch of new goodies and this Ultimate Brush set was one of the new releases. It comes with 18 brushes with roll  for $55. That comes out to roughly $3 a brush and I think that is a beauty win considering some brushes in this set individually are priced between $4-$6.

ELF BRUSH SET

One of the brushes that is included in this set is the Flawless Face Brush and I am obsessed with it. I have the original one in black and it retails for $6.00. I use it for my MAC Studio Fix Powder foundation and it packs the product on beautifully!! Another fav of mine that is included in this set is the Flawless Concealer Brush. Its $3 and works. Its not too big or small and its gentle. The brushes are Vegan-friendly and can be used either wet or dry products.  Also with this set is the metallic, also vegan leather brush roll which is perfect for travel and a space saver!

MAC Next To Nothing Foundation: Instagram Filter For Your Face??!!??

“An ultra balmy fluid infused with nourishing ingredients and opalescent microspheres for a youthful glow that looks lit from within. This sheer tinted cream can be used under or over foundation, or to bring a translucent luminosity to skin. The cushiony, smoothing texture glides over skin, diminishing the look of imperfections and fine lines, while moisturizing and protecting skin. Skin looks immediately retouched!” – Ulta Website

I know MAC Next To Nothing Foundation is almost old news now considering the beauty world is always producing new products but I still wanted to get my thoughts out.  In addition to making sure swatches are present online as it truly helps me choose what my shade may be! Who else searching for foundation swatches online?? Anywho this foundation is not for those who want full coverage or even medium coverage. You can use it in addition to your full coverage foundation to create a dewy look but if you want a one and done deal this is not for you.

Lets just get to the point, does this give you an instant instagram filter? Yes for me it does! I do have some redness on my skin but other than that I do not need a ton of coverage nor do I want a full coverage look.  This foundation is perfect for everyday, for mixing with other foundation or even younger girls just starting to get into makeup.

MAC Foundation

Benefits Per Ulta’s Website:

  • Provides hydration
  • Provides instant radiance
  • Features a comfortable, creamy formula
  • Nourishes skin
  • Immediately improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Visibly refines skin texture
  • Smoothes and softens skin

MAC Next To Nothing

    • Dark – Deep Carmel 
    • Dark Plus – Neutral Tan Beige 
    • Dark Deep – Rich Deep Bronze 

MAC Next To Nothing MAC Next to Nothing Foundation

There are other products that were released with the Foundation as a MAC Next To Nothing family if you will.  Those items were a Foundation BrushPowder Brush and Pressed Powders to set the foundation. The powder sets your face in a very natural way that is not to cakey and the brushes work well with both products but are not necessary if you want to just purchase this foundation to try! Again this foundation is perfect for everyday or a natural look or if you have a matte foundation you love that you want to add a bit of radiance in it you can mix it to create a dewy look. Have you tried this foundation? Sound off in the comments!!!

DERMAFLASH: Bye Bye Peach Fuzz!!

While I was attending the Bare Minerals event this summer I met two fabulous women from Dermaflash.  Once they asked me if I have tried it and I said no and they said I must must try it! Now I m not going to lie, I was honest with them because I was scared to try this. I asked all the questions…. does it hurt? Will my hair grow back thicker? Darker? Will it irritate my skin? One of the girls being a fellow Italian calmed my nerves that I do not need to worry about my hair growing back thicker lol  A week or so later it showed up at my door and they even walked me through it over facetime! As a brand they were already impressing me! So what is Dermaflash exactly????

Per the Sephora Website:

“DERMAFLASH was inspired by Dermaplaning, a costly exfoliation procedure available only in medical spas or doctor’s offices. The treatment gently removes the outer most layer of skin, with a scalpel, to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion. DERMAFLASH brings the effectiveness of Dermaplaning home, comfortably and safely. Great for women of all ethnicities and ages, this is a revolutionary device that uses a subtle sonic vibration paired with a stainless steel Edge to sweep away dead, dull skin cells, debris, and peach fuzz for skin that’s soft, dewy, luminous, and younger-looking”

Nair has always burned my skin on my upper lip and wax has broken me out. I really wanted something to assist with the peach fuzz on the sides of my face. I have heard about women “shaving” their faces but I was too scared.  With these three steps you are set and for me I am able to do it every 2-3 weeks. It is suggested to do it weekly but for me it was not needed.  I waited to write this post so I can see if it really worked and if my skin would react to not only the flashing but to the products that are in the system. I am here to say that I love it and its something every women should incorporate into their beauty routine! It does not hurt,  my hair did not grow back crazy or thicker and my skin looks better

Dermaflash

DERMAFLASH three-step system:

Prep, Edge & Sooth

  1. Prep your skin with the included cleanser. This cleanser is gentle and does not leave your skin feeling dry
  2. With a new edge you use short strokes and the guide you see above lays it out so easy for the user. It opens and gives you step by step instructions with pictures. I am very visual so I appreciated this added feature. When you flash you will remove built debris, dead skin cells and my absolute favorite part the PEACH FUZZ lol
  3. Last but not least you will sooth the skin with the hydrating moisturizer. Again this is gentle and did not irritate my skin

Dermaflash

dermaflash review

MORE PRODUCT INFO:

  • The System is $189.00 and is sold at Sephora.
  • Replacement sets are $39.00 and sold at Sephora 
  • You get 6 weeks worth as there are 6 edges included. However again I found I do not need to do this weekly for my peach fuzz. You can easily do this every 2-3 weeks.
  • They have a direct website with even more details, how to’s and guides

My Final Thoughts:

Do I think you need this in your beauty routine? YES!! If you have peach fuzz or dry skin this will help tremendously. Makeup can only do so much, its your skin care routine that matters and this is skincare! As I have gotten older, skincare has become my top priority. My makeup application looks better and more flawless when my skin is at its best!

This can be pricey and I understand that but its a lot cheaper than getting this type of procedure done in the salon. I do wish however the edges were sold by themselves as I do think you can use your own cleansers and moisturizers.  However I have been told it all works in conjunction to give the best results. So I will say okayyyyy I get it! Who doesn’t want the best results? I know I do!

I want to hear your thoughts? What are you currently using for hair removal on your face?

5 Morphe Brushes To Try For A Flawless Base!

Morphe was just added to the list of new brands coming to Ulta Beauty on October 22nd online. With this announcement it seemed like the perfect time to talk about my 5 must have Morphe Brushes. When it comes to the brand, there can be a bit of a debate over them.

Many large Influencers on YouTube with millions of subscribers all push for their brushes and makeup. The brand is very appealing because they come with an affordable price tag on all their products. The catch? The You Tubers use affiliate codes and many people think this is the only reason they give this brand good reviews because they receive a commission if a consumer uses that Influencers code.  The code allows for a discount for when you purchase directly from the Morphe site. It usually covers the shipping if you are not spending the amount for free shipping which is $75.00. Although I can appreciate the concern and debates, this is not something that I personally worry about and I always love a discount! lol

If I want to try something I do and if I do not like the product it gets returned.  A little over a year ago I decided to jump on the Morphe Brushes bandwagon as there are many people who do love these brushes and products to see for myself.  Another great reason to try? Morphe Brushes are also widely discussed online as dupes for MAC brushes. I could not resist and wanted to find out for myself.

Morphe Brushes

Verdict? In my opinion they are fabulous for makeup application, clean well and durable. Add in an affordable price tag, they are a win for me! Now I can only speak on these brushes, as I  have never tried their eye shadow brushes. I purposely left mine dirty for their photo shoot so you can see how loved they are.  Lets get into the breakdown.

Morphe Brushes For a Flawless Base:

  • M527 Deluxe Pointed Powder Brush $16.00: This brush is specific for bronzer and is made with goat hair. Bronzer goes on with ease and powder blends out nicely. It is known to be a dupe for MAC 135 Brush.  Will be available online 10/22 and in-stores 10/27 at  Ulta Beauty but can also be found on Morphe.com
  • M500 – Deluxe Pointed Blender $9.00: I use this to set my face and under eyes but this brush can be used in multiple ways. I use to set my whole face with powder after liquid foundation. However after watching a MAC artist on you tube only set certain areas I knew I wanted a brush to do just that. I typically set my T Zone since it gets oily and my under eyes in the hopes that my concealer will not crease.  Another dupe for MAC 137 brush. Will be available online 10/22 and in-stores 10/27 at  Ulta Beauty but can also be found on Morphe.com

  • E 4 Angled Contour $14.00: Holy Grail blush brush. I know this says contour and you can use it for that and other powders (no rules) but I personally love this for blush. I saw many Influencers on You Tube using this and since I am a blush addict I had to try it and I loveeee it! This brush is not on the Ulta site as of right now but you can find it here on the brands site.

  • M439 Deluxe Buffer Brush $14.00: Jaclyn Hill made this foundation brush famous and I see where the hype is. It does not suck up my foundation. Instead it distributes the foundation evenly all over my face and the dense brushes create a flawless coverage. Will be available online 10/22 and in-stores 10/27 at  Ulta Beauty but can also be found on Morphe.com
  • M405 Contour Brush $8.00:  The angle on this brush allows for a really nice contoured cheek that is natural looking. You can use this for blush and highlighter too but I found it to work best as a contour brush. Find it here

I hope this posts helps you if you have been looking for some new base makeup brushes to try!  What are some of your most loved Makeup Brushes? I most certainly need to update my eyeshadow brushes so any suggestions is appreciated. You guys know I am not fancy with eye shadow but maybe good brushes it will be like magic lol

MAC COSMETICS & MACY’S EVENT: Girls Night Out!

I wanted to give you all a run down of the MAC Cosmetics X Macy’s Meet and Greet in case you could not attend or join in on the live demo on Instagram! First and foremost I want to Thank all the amazing and very talented people over at MAC and Macy’s on State Street who gave me this honor. You all were incredibly welcoming and so fun to hang out with! For all my Chicago followers if you are in the area please make sure to check out this location for your MAC Cosmetics and beauty needs!

MAC reviews

The guests and I had so much fun just talking about MAC products we love and why we love them, shared tips and talked and talked and talked all night, all things beauty! One guest loved my makeup that night and wanted to know how I get a natural looking makeup application. We grabbed some of my must have MAC Products along with suggestions from the MAC artists for her skin tone and started a live demo on my Instagram Stories where I discussed why I love these products, shared beauty tips and answered questions.

MAC Cosmetics MUA: Clarissa – Instagram Handle @letsbrushnmakeup

Follower and lovely Model: Natasha

MAC Studio Fix

Clarissa created a natural look that had a smokey eye that can be worn during the day with a nude lip but adding a pop of color on the lips gives the look a stamp of glam approval. Not only did Natasha love the way her makeup looked but she loved the way it felt! She doesn’t wear a ton all the time so I felt it was important for her to try some of my fav MAC MVP’s that are fool proof in my opinion. This is what many of the guests talked about, natural looking makeup that gives a “this is me but better than me look” Too many steps and products can be very intimidating and even though I am a “Beauty Blogger” I am an everyday woman who doesn’t have a ton of time to get ready and myself can be intimidated at times with too many steps (insert the perfect smokey eye… gets me everytime lol)
