How To Clean / Sanitize your Clarisonic and Olay Brush Heads

I’ve come up with a nifty way to sanitize the brush heads for your Clarisonic or Olay face brush. Put them in the dishwasher! My hygienist told me to sanitize my Sonicare toothbrush heads in the dishwasher so I decided to give it a go with my Olay brush head. It worked:) Yea!

Dupe: Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

I love Tarte’s Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush, but I don’t love the price. At $32, its kind of steep, but I got it with the foundation in a deal on QVC so it wasn’t so bad.

The dupe is very affordable. It is the Eco Tools Bamboo Bronzer brush. Its slightly smaller in width than Tarte’s brush, but it preforms the same. I love the both! The Eco Tools brush is $12.49 at Ulta and if you catch the right sale you can get the Eco Tools brushes buy one, get one 1/2 off. That deal is going on as I type, by the way!

Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeshadow Pencils & Brush Review and Tutorial

I have been a fan of the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeshadow pencils since they were released. I have several and they are all top notch quality. They come in 12 different shades from neutral to beautiful pops of color. My favorite is Morphine, which is what I would describe as an electric purple. I just love it!

These eyeshadow pencils are perfect for summer as they are waterproof.  They stay on until you take them off and the don’t crease. They make pretty looks on their own and also act as good bases for powdered shadows. I couldn’t ask for more!

When you put these things on you had better be ready to blend…quickly! You have about 1 minute to get the shadow where you want it because once its dry, its dry. There is no turning back, its there to stay. I have found that blending with my finger works fine for shadow that I am laying down on the lid and for minor blending with another color. I do prefer their 24/7 Shadow Pencil Blending Brush for more detailed looks with the pencils as it really does help blend them together. The brush retails for $16. It is domed shaped and stiff. It’s built using the same vegan materials as the Good Karma brush collection, with super-soft synthetic “hair” made from recycled plastic bottles. It also has a recycled aluminum handle.

So, have you tried these shadows and if not, do you think you will?

Sephora + Pantone Shades of Nature Palette and Brush Set

Sephora + Pantone have come out with some more cool stuff. They have released a 5 piece eye brush set and a 35 shade eyeshadow palette. These are limited edition sets

The eye brush palette comes in a sleek, plastic case with five brushes. It is white and has what appears to be a green plant stem on it. The brushes are beautiful. The handles are duo chrome flashing purple and green. The bristles are a cream color topped with a pretty turquoise color. They are natural. The bristles are very soft, but I just can’t get over how pretty they are. I love them!

The eyeshadow palette is very nice too. It comes in a sleek palette that matches the brush set. It is plastic. It comes with 35 colorful shadows that are inspired by shades seen in nature. I was pretty impressed with the palette. Some shades are more pigmented than others and some blend better than others, but overall, its a beautiful palette and I’m glad that I got it. I took the pictures in lines going in columns beginning left to right. I didn’t do the swatches in rows because the rows are staggered and I wanted to make it easier for you to tell exactly what shade you were looking at.

So, are you going to pick up any of these new goodies? I’d love to know!
