new in: makeup and brushes

My makeup collection continues to expand! I know, I know, I have been trying so hard to be good with money lately....but sometimes I can't help but splurge a little bit! Recently, I picked up a couple of new makeup items as well as a new brush set.

Let's start with the brush set! The arrival of Target in Canada means that Sonia Kashuk brushes are now available here - so exciting. This set in particular supports breast cancer research, which is always a good thing. It comes with a blush brush, a blending brush, a domed shadow brush, concealer brush, angled liner brush - along with a super cute silver purse to hold the brushes. What I love about the Sonia Kashuk brushes are how soft the bristles are and how cute the designs are. I am just loving this set!


The next addition to my makeup collection? Physician's Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Sun Stones. I've actually never tried anything from Physician's Formula before, so I was definitely intrigued by this bronze boosting product. It comes with a puff and a brush, but I prefer to just swirl my regular blush brush into the stones and applying it on the apples of my cheeks. I absolutely love this and find myself using it a lot lately. It adds such a beautiful and healthy glow to my skin! While this was a little bit more expensive than something I would typically buy from the drugstore, but it was well worth it.


 Lastly is the Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in Pin Up Peach. I decided to pick up one of the Color Whispers after hearing rave review after rave review from beauty bloggers and YouTube beauty gurus. There is a great range of shades, but I chose Pin Up Peach because I wanted something wearable but a little dramatic. What I love the most is that the Color Whispers are really moisturizing on the lips and the colour is super buildable, so you can make the colour suit your makeup for day or night. Love!


Those are the recent additions to my makeup collection....what makeup have you tried lately?
