Products that transformed your style
Have you ever found a makeup product that you loved so much that your "look" changed as a result? Please share!   A few examples:    1. UD's Naked Palette. Even though it's a neutral palette, this actually inspired me to be mor adventurous with my eye looks, because the shadow just behaved so beautifully. Before, I had just used cheap eyeshadow, and all I could really do was spread it across my lid until the color showed up. But with Naked, I could try transitioning and blending and all that "fancy" stuff.   2. Tarte's cheek stains. Kevyn Aucoin's books actually inspired me to get this because I loved how liquid blush looked on his models. While this isn't exactly liquid, I still love the look and feel of the cheek stains, and haven't bought a powder blush ever since I discovered them!   3. Josie Maran's Argan Illuminizer. I love the look of luminous skin, but highlighting or powder illuminizers add an extra step to my beauty routine. But this product just mixes right in with my bb cream or foundation, and the only extra time it takes is the time to pump the dispenser and then swirl it with the foundation on the back my hand (which only takes seconds!).   So there are a few examples of mine. Can't wait to read yours!

SiJCP Sets are on Sale for $20
Today one of my friends that works at SiJCP texted me to buy her Advil and bring it to her. Because it was an imposition, she offered to buy me one of the holiday sets that they just put on clearance today. She bought me the Sephora Favorites Makeup Must-Haves which was marked down to $20 from $40 (and she got it for 15 with her discount). It's an incredible deal for what you get. My SiJCP had quite a few of them. There was also another set marked down, but I don't remember what it was.

Makeup tragedy!
Everyone is looking lovely today! Myself, I had a bit of disastrous morning of makeup. I usually only work from 11-4 M-F. But one of my coworkers is on a trip to FL (Lucky duck) and so I was covering her part of the schedule this morning which meant I had to be to work at 8:30. I misjudged how long it would take me to get ready and overslept by about ten minutes, so I didn't have as much time to put my face on as I usually do. I even did my eye shadow first, something i don't always remember to do. And put on all my primer and let it set before starting in with my makeup.(Something new that I am trying) And all was well until I went in for the last two steps, about the time that I was supposed to be leaving, I popped in to do my mascara and eyeliner. The eyeliner went on fine, and the mascara (which I would normally consider my HG) went on fine on my right eye, but somehow when I went to do my left eye a BIG GLOB of mascara got on my lashes!!!!! I attempted to wipe it off without smearing it and succeeded in smearing it ALL OVER my eyelid. It was AWFUL!!!!!!! So I quickly grabbed my makeup remover and washed off my left eye... I didn't have time to redo it,..  so I washed the eye makeup off my right eye as well. And then quickly and LIGHTLY applied some more mascara. But had to leave the house with no eye shadow and no eye liner. OH, THE HUMANITY!!! I felt naked all day.

NARS SPRING 2015: A STUDY IN NUDES
you guys know i love my NARS. and i am SUPER EXCITED about this release. as they put it: "a study in nudes for eyes, lips and cheeks--daring, baring, anything but neutral". it's all very chic.   it's live on NARS website and their boutiques, but i have  no information on when this will be released elsewhere. if anyone knows, please chime in !   (they've also launched a new foundation, thread on it can be found here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Face/Nars-All-Day- Luminous-Weightless-Foundation/td-p/1858795 )   i'm particularly intrigued by the "reckless" blush. i know it'll be mine. but this looks made for  very  pale skin. i guess this should be called "a study in nudes for very white girls" which is a more than fair criticism and worthy of discussion.   regardless, here are some releases for spring 2015:   lips : a sheer lipstick, liguria (i'm kind of new to the sheer lipstick world and very much wonder how a "nude" lipstick can differ much. i suppose this one looks warmer / oranger than, say pago pago). it's described as a nude caramel. this one is LE. and two lipglosses which are a seashell pink and a sheer silvery highlight color.  Guyane: and Vent Salé (LE)   cheeks blush in reckless. (want. want want want). described as "sheer pink shimmer" i think this is the pinker answer to the apricot Luster.   eyes there is a eye paint in porto venere (a pale pink), a single in valhalla (shimmer shadow in pinky peach) and a duo in st paul de vence (shimmery nectarines; this one is LE).   here is queen tilda in the collection.

Recommendations for inexpensive soft face brush?
I've been using more face powders lately (finishing powders, mattifying powders, light coverage powders, etc.), and I'm starting to realize that my Sonia Kashuk face brush may not be the best choice for my skin. As soft as it feels on my hand, it seems to be irritating my face regardless of what face powder I use. My skin feels itchy afterwards and gets red -- ugh. I've been looking at face brush reviews, but there just seems to be so many to choose from. Do I really have to buy a NARS Kabuki brush at $55 to get what I need, or are there other soft options?
