The Brush that isn't given enough credit

(well, as far as I know haha)

I first heard of this brush when I was watching the videos put up by Makeup Designory. They use this brush (or a smaller) version for mascara. I've also seen it on Makeup Geek and a few other youtubers' videos.

It has become one of my all time FAVORITE types of brushes....no contest, everyone should have one........
it's the...............

Catching Up - Beauty Army box shipped today!


So my Beauty Army kit finally shipped today. Here is a preview of what I selected as my samples.

 I had a very hard time with this month due to some fusterations with the quiz and the samples that didn't seem to fit with what I selected. I later found out that I was right and that there was a lip balm that I could have selected but it never showed up in the like 20 times that I took the quiz, so that I was quite upset about. Another issue was that lotions or creams were the only things I was getting (hence, taking the quiz 20 or so times). I have a face moisturizer that I use because it's the only one I found that I really like. I don't mind trying others but 1. the chances of me buying it are slim to none because it's probably really expensive and 2. that's not the only thing I want in my kit.

One of the choices was another bling tone eyeshadow which I got last month and wasn't too thrilled with it.

They had a scrub I really wanted but it was scented with coconut which I cannot do. The scrub is the same brand as the shampoo so I am wondering what this is going to smell like.

A few of the items I was excited about, some were just because I had to choose. I really....really wanted the lip balm. I'm just having issues with the lack of variety. There is variety within the brands of lotions/serums that they are offering.......but I want more than lotions/serums. I want make-up, nail products, hair products that aren't shampoo (I technically got two "shampoos"). I'll explain more about why I chose the samples I did when the kit arrives.

2 new Julep Boxes...IMATS...Beauty Army coming...MyGlam coming...

I'm exhausted. It's too late for this. Night time is the only real time that I have to do this because of my son, school and work....but I am just so tired.

-I'm super excited because I'm pretty sure that I'll be going to IMATS New York! Like so excited! But the hotels are so expensive that I don't know what to do. I don't mind walking there, but I don't want to drive so I look at all the hotels right around Pier 94, but they are $200 a night, which I really cannot afford. And even geekier...is that I really truly want to the stay in The Empire Hotel because of Gossip Girl. I am slightly obsessed with the show/books lol. I'm truly hoping that they are taping during IMATS. Or at least to meet Ed Westwick, Leighton Meister or Blake Lively lol. <3 <3

-I finally got my January It Girl box from Julep maven since they sent me the wrong one in December. I also got the February Bombshell (which is my normal profile). Since I'm behind and I got 2 Zoya nailpolishes, I just put on the two polishes from Feb. after the Zoya one chipped too much. I loved the zoya polish I used as well as the two Julep ones I just used and will put my comments when I do a post with all the pictures.

-Subscriptions for MyGlam opened up and I signed up to see what its like. They are another monthly subscription service (I need to stop doing those lol). I wanted to test it out and try it. This one is $10 and the Feb one will be my first one and will review that.

-My Beauty Army box will be coming soon. It was either sent out on Friday or will be on Monday. I haven't checked my email yet. So will be doing a review.

-I used two of my BFTE eyeshadows and will be dong a review on that...I'm so far behind. I'll do some posts tomorrow when I have more time.
