Everyday Minerals Blushes and Essence of Beauty Brushes

I received my Everyday Minerals haul today! I loved their blush in “Waffle Cone”, so I bought more of their blushes in “Email Me” a light toasty brown, and “Apple”, a rosy color.

The Swatches:

I also stopped by CVS after work to check out more of the Essence of Beauty brushes since they had a BUY ONE GET ONE 50% OFF SALE and came out with a foundation brush and a large powder brush. I don’t need anymore brushes, but tell a makeup addict that and they don’t understand because to them they don’t have enough.LOL.

I truly, madly, deeply, love Essence of Beauty Brushes, they are seriously a notch below MAC brushes in my opinion, and you cannot beat the price! I am not even kidding, these brushes are soft and high quality, they don’t shed (for me anyway), and they are not scratchy or prickly at all. If you are new to makeup or have a budget, I HIGHLY suggest starting off with these brushes before you go into high-end ones.

I finally got my nails done, I am leaving on Saturday for the Big Apple and thought i’d get my nails looking nice since I have clients to meet, can’t be looking all bummy!

And the bf bought me the cutest barrettes!

My overall haul today, I also got some more falsies and Physician’s Formula Concealer Duo:

    oOoo, i love those two blushes. i think that email me might be too sheer on me though cause i’m darker than you. but apple looks like it’d be a worthy color to try! :] btw… i also have the waffle cone blush from EDM and love it too! :]

    Hey,<BR/><BR/>Those brushes sure sounds interesting! Any idea if they’re available online, with shipping to other places than US and Canada?

    I love Essence of Beauty brushes. I have so many and I happen to buy some more this week. :)<BR/><BR/>I wanted to ask you about Everyday Mineral. How is the concealer? Can you do a tutorial of the steps you do to apply mineral makeup? I just assumed you only put the foundation but do you need the finished powder afterwards? I guess you can say I’m clueless when it comes to putting makeup on

    Hi Alma! I used the foundation brush for the first time this morning and I love it! It’s big to cover enough of your face that’s what I love about it, sorry to hear they are shedding for you, I honestly think all brushes even high-end brushes will shed at some time.<BR/><BR/>Alyssa- Applying mineral foundation is easy, just use a buff brush or a fluffy powder brush dip in your minerals, tap it on

    vanessa, what’s your favorite essence of beauty brush? my favorite is the define/crease brush… the little small, slim ones (2 in a pack). i love that they are small and give control of a color in the crease.
