Shopping My Beauty Samples

Happy Monday! It is the countdown to Christmas! I'm so excited! Well today is another post in my Shopping My Beauty Samples series. This one is all brushes that I have received from Ipsy. I realized that I haven't mentioned them in yet in a post. Let's get into the reviews.

Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: I already love the brush because its pink lol! I use this brush for my lid color and love how it applies my shadow. It is the perfect lid brush to pack on the color. I really love this brush. This is the only one by this company but if they had more, I would purchase them.

Luxie Tapered Blending Brush

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 12.00
Review: You can never have enough blending brushes. I use this brush for my outer corner because of the angle of the brush. It is light to the touch but blends like a dream. It does a great job of concentrating that color in the area you are working in. I would purchase more brushes from this company.

Crown Brush Oval Concealer

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 2.98
Review: I normally don't use concealer brushes, I use my fingers most of the time lol. This brush is great for applying my color correcting shade and also my concealer. I like how dense the brush is but it not so rough. This is the perfect brush for applying cream products because it helps smooth the product and blend it out. I have already purchased more brushes by this company, I love these brushes!!

Crown Brush Crease/Shadow Brush

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 3.99
Review: As you guys know, I love a good multi-purpose product. I love that I can use this for applying my shadow and smudging out the lash line or defining my crease color. I love how fluffy and soft the shadow side is and how well it applies my shadows. The crease part is very dense but gets the job done. As you read from the previous Crown brush, I love them and already have purchased a few more.

Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 2.49
Review: Excuse how the brush looks with the paint chipping, I've been really using this brush a lot. I use this one for my lid color and it does an amazing job with packing on the color. I would purchase more brushes from Coastal Scents.

So that is it for Shopping My Beauty Samples. Have you tried any of these brushes before? What were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know. See you guys tomorrow.

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid. 

(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
