"Contour and define cheeks for flawlessly blended, high-definition results"
This is by far the best brush I've ever used for blush! It blends as your applying it. Helps save time while giving a flawless finish. I don't really like it for contouring my face because of the size.
Overall I'm very happy with it & plan on buying more brushes from this line.
Sorry for the pictures. I used it right before photographing it.
Love the shape!
Stands on it's on.

Blaze (left) & Aurora (right)
(click to enlarge)
Zoya Nail Polish in Aurora can be best described as a full coverage, medium sugarplum purple flecked with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter. The rainbow holographic sparkle turns this plum purple into something truly captivating.
Zoya Nail Polish in Blaze can be best described as a full coverage, cool-toned medium mulberry red with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter. The multidimensional holographic glitter adds complexity and depth to this vampy red.
-Both applied very easily & only took two coats.
-Up close it looks like I could of used a third coat for Aurora, but it person it looks perfect in two coats.
-My camera always does a horrible job at photographing red polishes. So for Blaze the description & picture of the bottle is completely accurate. This reminds me of the perfect Mani color for Christmas Day.

Zoya Nail Polish in Logan can be best described as a full coverage, yellow-toned forest green with dense, foil-like yellow-gold and blue-green duochrome shimmer! Rich color, a sparkling finish and a subtle duochrome effect make this green very special. Pair it with a Zoya Ziv (gold) tip for an extra dash of holiday flare!
Zoya Nail Polish in Electra can be best described as a micro fine diamond holographic glitter mixed with large silver holographic bar tinsel in a clear base. Electra can be worn alone, as a festive french tip or layered over any polish to add a unique hologram glitter effect.
Zoya Nail Polish in Ziv can be best described as a full coverage, yellow-toned metallic gold foil with silver highlights and warm gold flake glitter accents. Try this for an extremely shiny, reflective, and eye-catching luxe gold nail. Imagine Zoya Trixie in gold.
Zoya Nail Polish in Storm can be best described as a full coverage, holiday black with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter. Storm is elegant, powerful and versatile - try it as a french tip over Aurora or Blaze!

Zoya nail polish in Frida can be best described as: A sheer, dark, warm-toned teal blue with a buildable jelly gloss finish. The jelly gloss formula can be worn alone or layered to create an endless variety of custom colors and effects
Took four coats. Even though I did 4 thin coats & waited a couple minutes in between coats this one still came out streaky & a bit bubbly. Overall I think this polish will work better layered under or over other polishes.
Zoya nail polish in Paloma can be best described as: A sheer deep fuchsia-berry with a buildable jelly gloss finish. The jelly gloss formula can be worn alone or layered to create an endless variety of custom colors and effects
I honestly don't see why this is classified as burgundy. It's clear that it's pink. I used four coats for this one as well. I didn't have problems like I did with Frida. I'm a bit disappointed because this polish is not like it was described or shown in the swatch on zoya.com
Zoya nail polish in Katherine can be best described as: A sheer, dark, red-toned aubergine, oxblood with a buildable jelly gloss finish. The jelly gloss formula can be worn alone or layered to create an endless variety of custom colors. Color originally created for fashion designer Peter Som.
Used four coats just like the other two. I find this one also applied a bit streaky, but I really like the color so I will try to search for a different way of applying it. I also layered this one under a WNW polish so I will post that mani soon.

You Glitter be good to Me (left) & I think in pink (right)
You Glitter be good to me- Clear base with small coppery glitter with larger pink hex glitter. Can be worn on its own if layered or layered over another color to add some sparkle.
I think in pink- This is OPI's signature Breast Cancer Awaraness shade.It's a pretty light creme pink. It's pretty sheer so I had to use 3 coats to get it like it is in the pictures.
Radiant firming makeup
Up First is the foundation. Honestly I think I've found my new favorite foundation.
-Goes on smoothly & blends in well
-Lasts all day without a primer
- Doesn't make me look oily
-Works great at evening out my skin tone
-Doesn't make me breakout
- Radiant look
-Smooth and even skin tone
-Formula with Goji Berry and Caffeine visibly firms and improves skin's condition
I finally have an Ulta near me :) Let's just say this won't be my last visit there.
I picked up these 3 eyeshadow singles.
Rust, Sensual, & Deep Purple.
Rust- My Husband actually picked this one out for me. He said it looked like Fall.
Very pigmented & no fallout.
Sensual- Love this one! Such a pretty shade of purple with a burgundy goldish shimmer to it.
Very pigmented & no fallout.
Deep Purple- I don't know why this one is classified as "purple". It is clearly a grayish color, but still very pretty.
Very pigmented & no fallout.
