Taylor Swift and CoverGirl

No! Hella heck no!
Do we really need MSN to tell us this? I like Taylor. I think she is a great wholesome role model for girls all around the world of any and all ages. But come on now, we know the cosmetic companies photoshop most if not all pics and alter videos. We as consumers have to make a wise choice when purchasing items, and make our own decision on what is good and what is a total lie and failure.

I have found the BEST make-up brush cleanser

This may sound odd but trust me ...
Cleaning my make-up brushes never was a big deal for me, until I began high school. I have tried just about every brush cleanser around ... high-end, middle-end, low-end and homemade.

I started out with baby soap/dish soap and water, moved on to M·A·C. Then my journey began with a whole lot of various other products/brands. I tried my own homemade concoctions and continued another endless journey with other products/brands.

With that being said, I have never been happy with the outcome of my brushes and sponges, until today. Normally I wash my brushes in the bathroom. I decided to wash them at my kitchen sink. Then an idea DAWNed (no pun intended) on me. I have used dish washing soap before (no it does not ruin your brushes) with okay results. When I saw the Dawn Bleach Alternative (over night soaking power in 5 mins) bottle I thought I'd give it a shot. I am BLOWN away with how well it cleaned my brushes and sponge. I always have trouble cleaning my Sonia Kashuk synthetic flat top multipurpose brush. It just seems to never get 100% clean. Tonight that brush (along with the rest of them) is sparkling clean and I am very happy with my shot-in-the-dark-on-a-whim try.
The next washing I am going to try the Dawn again and rinse it with vinegar (one of my homemade recipes I was using) and I'll let yall know if their is any difference.

PS: The Dawn Bleach Alternative works very well on stuck on or burned on food as well. LOL!

Urban Decay Naked2

WoW! It's been awhile! Sorry, yall know how it goes.

Yesterday (Saturday) I received my Urban Decay Naked2 palette. I'm very excited because I love the original palette (with dual ended eyeliner) and original 2 palette (with brush) AND I am a neutral lover. I also received a Travel Size 24/7 Pencil in Eldorado as a freebie. Urban Decay also let me use my 10% discount, which saved me $5.00. Shipping took 4 days. YES! 4 days!!!

Enjoy the pics :)
