Introduction to the Sonia Kashuk 15th Anniversary Brush Set

Hello, everyone! Long time no blog! My boyfriend and I just got back from Florida. FYI, the flight was awful because I flew through Spirit Airlines. I’ve flown with them before so I already knew that it was going to suck. Check out if you hate Spirit, too, or if you share similar feelings for another airline. Spirit will give you 8,000 Spirit Miles for venting your 140-character frustrations. I recommend that you use your miles on magazines, they actually have a pretty good selection.

Because Spirit is so cheap I only brought an overnight bag so I didn’t return with many souvenirs. I did, however, bring this baby back.


Feast your eyes on Sonia Kashuk’s 15th Anniversary Brush Set!

I believe this is the largest brush set that has been offered by Miss Kashuk. At $2.67 (pre-tax) per brush, this collection is an incredible deal. The eggplant colored handles with the gold accent tips add a touch of elegance to the exotic radiant orchid colored bristles. Most of the bristles are made with luxuriously soft [cruelty-free] goat hair. Even after washing the brushes with baby shampoo, all of the brushes had retained their original softness. Personally, I hardly experienced any shedding.

Sonia Kashuk’s brushes are known for professional quality at drugstore prices. Having a retailer like a Target cuts costs for both Sonia and the consumer. Everybody wins!

*This set is limited edition and will only be sold until October so if you want it and you see it, grab it and buy it!

Review: E.L.F. Eyelid Primer

The bad news is Sunday funday is coming to an end, the good news is my eyeshadow held up pretty good this weekend.

As I mentioned in my last post, I picked up E.L.F.’s Eyelid Primer for a buck and tax at Target.

20140622-215223-78743336.jpgGet to know Tiff: I like to read all the information on a product’s packaging before I purchase it.

I have previously used Urban Decay’s Primer Potion, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and most recently Mary Kay’s Signature Eye Primer.

Urban Decay & Too Faced are both very reliable brands for eyeshadow primer. As for the eyeshadow primer from Mary Kay… Let’s just say that immediately following application, my eyeshadow was pretty. When I saw myself in the mirror a few hours later, my eyeshadow was NOT pretty… or at least what was left of it (not much). Both the NYX Natural Palette and the Urban Decay Naked Palette refused to adhere to the Mary Kay eye primer.

While the E.L.F Eyelid Primer does not quite match the staying power of higher-end brands, I was very impressed to see that my eyeshadow was almost perfectly intact with very minimal creasing. This creamy eyelid primer creates a smooth canvas for eyeshadow. Not only are colors easier to blend, they stay on longer, too. It just may be the ideal eyelid primer for those that find their current eyelid primer too drying. For the price and performance, I can definitely recommend this product.
