February Favorites

Featured in this video:

Just thought I share some of my February favorites. Since my acne was clowning my skin, I didn’t try a lot of new makeup, but I still have quite a few beauty products to share with you. I hope you enjoy.

Two of My Favorite Makeup Brushes

Two of My Favorite Makeup Brushes

Just thought I’d share two of my favorite makeup brushes:

Sigma’s F50 Duo Fibre Brush-$20.00: I love this brush specifically for putting on my blush. I have other blush brushes I could use, but this brush is amazing at color application. With a swirl or two, I always get the right amount of product. Since, I’m a makeup beginner, I’m so glad that when I put on my blush, I always look natural instead of clownish. It’s easy to clean, despite it’s white spike head. Plus, it’s never shed on me. So, this brush gets a 5 🙂 rating.

E.L.F Studio Kabuki Face Brush-$6.00: You can’t beat the price on this brush. I got this brush at my Super Target while shopping this summer and have been hooked ever since. I use this kabuki brush to buff on my Makeup Forever Duo Matte powder and I love the results. Not only is this brush incredibly soft, but it evenly picks up and distributes an even layer of powder. Plus, this brush is pretty easy to clean. However, one of the drawbacks is that this brush takes a light-year to dry after you deep clean it (I recommend having a backup on hand). Also, this brush occasionally sheds. However, given that and the spectacular results at a drug store price, this brush gets a 4 🙂 rating.

So what are a few of your favorite makeup brushes?

Bye, Bye Duo Matte 218

My Favorite MUFE Product Discontinued...

My favorite MUFE product is being discontinued. I swear…just when you start to love something in the beauty world, the company decides to reinvent the wheel or to improve it when they should have just left it alone. Yeah, I said it.

I’m so bummed that Makeup Forever is discontinuing its Duo Matte Powders. This was the best powder foundation I’ve used and the #218 was the perfect shade for me.

Now, sadly, I can’t find my right shade in their new Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation. Everything is either too light, too yellow, or too dark. 😦  It looks like I will be switching to the MUFE liquid HD foundation in 175 when my Duo Matte powder hits pan.

Sometimes change is not good. I seriously want to start a protest to bring the Duo Matte line back. I even sent a polite tweet inquiry last week, which went ignored. Seriously, as a sistah of color this is a travesty because not too many companies do a good job of having a wide range of foundations. This new line is very limited in comparison to the the Duo Matte line and my heart is broken over it.

I guess after my beauty diet, I will have to be on the hunt for a perfect powder foundation. Wish me luck.
