I was recently sent the Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki - F80 from SIGMA for reviewing purposes. I was startled at the feel of this brush when I recieved it in the mail. It is synthetic, I guess I haven't used many synthetic brushes for foundation before. This brush is my new holy grail item in my makeup bag, the way it blends foundation into your skin seamlessly is amazing! I've tried both buffing the foundation product into my skin, and stippling it. Buffing creates more of a natural look, while stippling gives an airbrushed look without looking too made up. This brush can be used with any type of foundation, I currently use it with cream foundation, and if I want slight coverage, a powder foundation. For both it works absolutely wonderful, and I would reccomend this brush to anyone. This brush is super inexpensive for both the quality and the efficiancy, for $16. I plan on buying a few more for my professional kit as now I consider it a MUST HAVE!

SMASHBOX LIMITLESS LIQUID LINER PEN
I love this liner! I used to use a revlon colourstay liquid liner but now I found my favourite liquid liner ever! It's super easy to apply and the liquid doesn't run into fine lines. It's very very black and stays put throughout the day until you wash it off, gotta have it!
DOLCE AND GABBANA LIGHT BLUE
I recently received this fragrance and I cannot stop wearing it! The base notes include citron wood, amber and musk. The heart notes are bamboo, jasmine and white rose. The top notes include Sicilian cedar, apple and bluebell. It's a very fresh fragrance, and I've received tonnes of compliments when I wear it!
MAC MINERALISE SKIN FINISH NATURAL
I love this powder foundation, I usually pair it with a tinted moisturizer for a sheer coverage. Or with a liquid foundation for a heavier coverage. I love the way it sets my makeup but doesn't make me look cakey. It gives me a glow without looking oily. My skin looks fresh and dewy, young and radiant. I definitely love this stuff!
AVENE COLD CREAM LIP CREAM
This lip cream is the mother of all lip conditioners. It will cure your dry flaky lips over night. I first exfoliated my lips with a LUSH lip exfoliant and then put this on afterwards and woke up with the smoothest lips I've ever had! It is a bit pricey but well worth it!
SIGMA EYE SHADING BRUSH E55
This month I've been loving this brush! It's perfect for packing on colour to your lid and is the perfect size. Everyone needs a brush like this! Get yours in the link below!
The Neostrata Oil Free Moisture Infusion Lotion is a light lotion that is perfect for dehydrated, acne prone and oily skin. It is great for all ages and it is non-comedogenic so it will not block your pores. The trouble I have been having is finding a moisturizer that is oil free but will deliver the hydration that I need in the winter. Most oil free, water based moisturizer formulas are gel, and while they feel nice when you put them on, the hydration doesn't last all day and my skin is still dry. After trying the Neostrata Oil Free Moisture Infusion Lotion I noticed my skin was noticeably more supple, soft and hydrated. This moisturizer leaves a semi-matte finish and it is a perfect base to start applying your makeup over top. It may even be used as a primer, for someone who does not want to use many products. If your skin is dehydrated and on the oily or combination side I would definitely recommend this product for you!
