Brush Declutter

I've been collecting brushes steadily from late 2012. While periodically I've place a few of them in The Marketplace, I've never gone through the entire collection and sifted through what I don't use often.

I'm a big fan of the Wayne Goss eye brushes and from de time I knew I could get Chikuhodo brushes customized on Visage de dog dead.

When it came to the M.A.C brushes I had to make some relatively tough calls; often we feel we have to hold onto things due to how much they cost but I'm over that now.

So how did I do?

Not as well as I'd thought...but it's a start. I made up my mind to destash a lot of eye brushes since falling in love with the Wayne Goss ones. They feel great on my eyelids; so great that many other brushes now feel incredibly scratchy. You'll see a couple Zoeva brushes here from the Rose Gold set that I reviewed a while ago. I'm still fond of those but I noticed I had similar ones. Why not pass them on to someone who would appreciate them right? Right.

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.


From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.


At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

T - B: 'Scarcely Seen', 'Rosebuddy' and 'Caketop'
Of course I had to get a bullet lipstick...

Matte Metallic 'Straight Fire'
The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.


Just like the Nutcracker Sweet Collection they also released sets of minis. They claim these…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...


...this is almost done. I was using this in the shower and yuh know, time just got away.
