It’s safe to say Crown Brush has a new fan. My youngest Naomi was already familiar with Crown Brush. She has used several of mine. I bough the 12 Piece Pro Brush Set from HauteLook as a belated birthday gift. She also needed a pencil sharpener.
I could barely get close enough to take pictures. LOL! The set includes the most commonly used makeup brushes and fits nicely into her purse. The 12 Piece Pro Brush Set is a great starter set for beginners.
Looks like I’ll have to place another order the next time Crown Brush is on HauteLook. Naomi is extremely happy with this purchase.
The contents of my March ipsy Bag are:
- Aphrodite Skin Care Replenishing Eye Cream
- NUDESTIX Lip + Cheek Pencil in Mystic
- ModelCo LIP LACQUER Lip Gloss in Socialite
- Me me me Loose Powder Brush

It has been a while since I last made a Crown Brush purchase from HauteLook. I remember placing orders every time Crown Brush was on HauteLook (BTW Crown Brush is on HauteLook this weekend). What caught my attention this time around was the HauteLook Exclusive 10-Piece Syntho Brush Set for $5.00. I did manage to get a few other things too. LOL!
I was definitely was in need of a mixing tray.
I’ve owned a few of the angle liner/spoolie brushes in the past. These brushes have gone missing from my room for some strange reason. Hmmm
A few of my concealer brushes have gone missing as well. I guess that is what happens when you have daughters.
I am very pleased with this purchase. It looks like I’m going to have to make room for future Crown Brush purchases from HauteLook. 😉
The Fall weather is finally here in my area of the United States. I can always count on Pittsburgh Summers to be very hot and humid. It’s challenging to be cute in this type of weather. LOL! These are the beauty products I relied on to not look a hot mess during the Summer.
- Black Soap from Nature’s Shea Butter
- Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
- BH Cosmetics Liquid Foundation – Deep Beige
- NYX Eyebrow Gel – Espresso
- NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer
- BH Cosmetics 24 Piece Synthetic Makeup Brush Set
- NYX Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner – Silky Cashmere
- Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner – Lionfish
- Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hand & Body Scrub
- Shea Terra Organics White Chocolate Whipped Shea Butter Ultimate Moisturizing Body Cream
The skin on my face when the humidity is low is typically combination/oily. I notice my skin is oilier during the Summer with all the humidity. The Black Soap from Nature’s Shea Butter cleansed my skin thoroughly and helped keep my complexion clear.
Speaking of skin, the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hand & Body Scrub made my skin soft and smooth.
I applied the Shea Terra Organics White Chocolate Whipped Shea Butter after I bathed. This shea butter wasn’t greasy either.
I received the deluxe sample of the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara from my August 2014 ipsy Bag. I instantly fell in love with this mascara. I didn’t necessarily need to wear eyeliner with this mascara. This was great for those mornings I was in a hurry.
I used NYX Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in Silky Cashmere on my waterline to brighten my eyes. This was also a time saver for me when I didn’t wear a lot of eye makeup. I paired this eyeliner with the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.
The Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Lionfish was a nice alternative for me instead of using black eyeliner on my lower lash line. For some black eyeliner can be a bit harsh. This eyeliner also gave me a natural look.
I really love the NYX Eyebrow Gel in Espresso. It stood up to Pittsburgh humidity. This eyebrow gel lasted all day. A little goes a long way.
I was really surprised by the performance and coverage of the BH Cosmetics Liquid Foundation. I originally bought two shades for myself (Deep Beige and Deep Cocoa). I found myself reaching for the Deep Beige more since I thought it was a better match on me. The color is buildable. This foundation didn’t make my skin oily and it didn’t oxidize.
The NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer in Nutmeg has been my go to concealer. This concealer did a great job on covering my blemish scars and hyper-pigmentation without feeling heavy.
I got a lot of use out of my BH Cosmetics 24 Piece Synthetic Brush Set. This set has all the brushes I used for the on Wednesdays we wear pink series I did for the Summer. The brushes didn’t shed when I cleaned them either.
