so as I said before, I am trying to get started on a make up collection.
I have recently purchased two brushes from Sigma.
One E55 Flat Eye Shading Brush and an F60 Foundation Brush.
My new brushes:
|E55 + F60|
|I painted over the names with clear nail polish to preserve it.|
My E55 brush, I really really needed because I was looking for something like the MAC 239 to use for my 88 colors bh cosmetics eye shadow palette.
The F60 was a brush I just bought as a way to convince myself to start using liquid foundation.
For a while now, I have been using my IMAN Stick Foundation and setting it with a Translucent Blotting Powder also from IMAN. As we all know, IMAN products are becoming increasingly scarce. Its a good foundation but it does leave me looking oily and pasty at the end of the day. It has served me well, but I feel I as though the time has come to try something else. I'll write what I think about them so far from other people's reviews, because I cannot seem to make a decision. These are the few I have in consideration:
- MAC Face and Body foundation. My skepticism about this is that it is water-based and is very lightweight. I don't really like to use concealer, so I would prefer that my foundation hid all my blemishes on its own.
- MAC Studio Fix Fluid. My skepticism about this is that it is really very heavy. I fear that it will ultimately break me out.
- MAC Pro Long wear. I actually don't really know too much about it.
I think I'll just head to the MAC store out in Eastview Mall soon and ask them for samples to try out for myself. I also need them to tell me what color I am so I don't wind up looking like a clown. First thing would be to find a ride there. *sigh* I really do need a car.
