Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer

I was trying to order some new products from Burt’s Bees when I remembered that I still have an almost brand new Rasin Lip Shimmer in my drawer which was only used once.

Unfortunately, even though I’m very fond of Burt’s Bees products, I cannot say the same for their lip shimmers.  Like their original lip balm, the lip shimmers are made from natural ingredients like vitamin E, coconut plus sunflower oils to moisturize and highlight the lips, and actually come in eleven yummy shades.

Flawless look with mineral foundation

I have to say I’m very impressed by the mineral foundation from Erth Mineral Makeup. 

Apart from mineral eyeshadows, I have yet to buy mineral foundation even though I’ve read and written good things about it.  First it isn’t readily available here and second, because of the way it looks, I thought I would get similar result like normal loose powder, for which I’m not a fan of.  But thanks to free samples from the company, I finally got to try mineral foundation and I’m now completely hooked on the product. 

Tips on makeup brushes

581335035 bf81935a7f m Tips on makeup brushes

I was looking up information about makeup brushes when I stumbled upon this great site on make-up tips.  Very useful tips they have, and here are some relevant ones I’ve learnt about brushes.

Natural or synthetic brush
Natural bristled brushes are best as they are soft to the touch and are most effective for applying powder blush, face powder, eyeshadow or lipstick.  Synthetic brushes, which are much more affordable and are often more durable and harder to damage are best reserved for eyeshadow base, cream eyeshadows, and concealers.
