Ebay Haulz & Eki-Luvin'!


EBAY HAUL #1
I've been lemming to try the Badger Brushes- I just don't want to order from Coastal Scents because shipping is too expensive IMO.
Also, I have the 88 Shimmer Palette- but I wanted the 88 Matte Palette too.
However, some of the shades are shimmery in the 88 Matte Palette.

You can purchase these products HERE.



Badger Brushes
(warning: they smell bad, which is normal- but with a few washes, they are just fine)

I was little bummed out with this brush, because it isn't as soft as I'd hope it would be.
But WOW, you can achieve some great coverage with this brush.
I used it with my MAC MSF Natural and it applied to an almost full coverage.
Love that aspect of it.


This, hands-down, my favorite brush out of the loot!
It's soft too!
I applied this with my cream foundation and it was SO fast and SO easy, with a beautiful coverage. I definitely recommend getting this one!!!
It's a MH! ("Must-Have")


This brush is not soft. I will not use it on my face.
However, I used with bronzer to bronze my neck (my neck is so pale- compared to my face and body)- So if you're looking for a body bronzing/shimmering brush, then definitely check out this one.


This is softer than than the last one.
This is small, therefore it's great for PRECISION angle contouring.
It also makes a great highlighting-cheek-bone brush.


I LOVE THIS BRUSH!
It seriously is amazing- I have two of these now.
You can use it to pack-on the lid color, to blend the crease, as well as highlighting the brow-bone!
A definite MH!


This is a softer rounded crease brush-
great for precision, and "cutting-the-crease."
It's also a wonderful smudge brush for liner.






EBAY HAUL #2
The Pretty Stuffs
Emma is so nice- please go check out her Ebay Store!
GINVERA
Green Tea Marvel Gel
smells really nice- a soft, powdery, green-tea scent.
WHAT IT DOES:
-softens the cornified layer to gently remove dead skin cells
-softens & smoothes rough oarse skin
-stimulates skin metabolism, making your skin look younger
-anti-oxidant effect for fairer skin
-balance free radicals & delays aging process
-revitalizes skin cells to lighten aging spots and freckles (THIS IS WHAT I NEED!)
-removes make-up & impurities


Active ingredients are:
green tea, aloe vera, bio-gel, geranium, & herbal extracts.


Obviously this is for your face, but I'm going to demonstrate using the back of my hand.
Squeeze tube with a light green color.
Beginning to flake off that dead skin.
WOW, eeew, I know but it really works & I've tried a couple out there, but none have worked as good as this.

Then Rinse.

Whit, that Green Tea gel looks interesting!

And you're right, that Paul and Joe stick concealer totally matches your skin.

Love the bow and headband.

Too bad about the scratchiness of the brushes but seems like you can put to good use all of them.

Catherine said...

Nice hauls and wow - so nice of Eki! That IS a perfect match!! :D Thanks so much for the reviews of the badger brushes too - I was considering getting a set of them (don't know why, I already have brushes LOL) and I'm glad I didn't since they're not as soft it seems. I have the small smudger and the angled crease brush and really like them though.

I love the badger brushes. I have the 5th and 6th one, and I would agree the 5th one is a must have! I have 2 of them too! I really want to try a flat top bronzer/face brush. Maybe I'll give the one above a try!
