How to fix a water damaged eyeshadow!

Everyone has that one eyeshadow which looks so much better when its wet. Mine was a single eyeshadow from NYX.

After using it wet for a few months I realized that I didn't like the look of the shadow. I also noticed that it wasn't as pigmented anymore.

I had two options: scrape of the top (risk damaging it) or find a non evasive way to get off the of layer.

After racking my mind for a while I found some masking tape. Check out the results in the video below!

Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F-80 Review + Guide

I have been on a hunt for a flat top brush that can be used with liquid. Hello Sigma's Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F-80!

This exclusive flat top synthetic kabuki was designed to deliver a flawless makeup application. The Sigma Makeup F80 is a buffer brush that can be used to blend powder or liquid products. The short and dense bristles make it easy to buff your liquid foundation. The long handle adds comfort to your makeup application. The synthetic fibers are ideal to be used with liquid products and can be easily cleaned. 
  • Multi-purpose (can be used with creams, liquids & powders)
  • Long handle (good for handling)
  • Short dense bristles ( This gives an airbrushed look)
  • Soft bristles ( Doesn't hurt when you buff your foundation)
  • Price (Only $16.00!!)
I don't have any cons for this brush! It is rare to find a brush that gives you a quick airbrushed look.

This is how I use the brush:
First apply a small amount of foundation on the top of your hand or a metal plate.
You don't need a lot with this brush. Dab the brush, so it has a good amount of product.
Secondly dab the product to your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.
Then buff it in for a airbrushed look.

At the end you should have a flawless face which looks like you don't have ANY foundation at all.

Loveee it! This brush gets 5 stars from me, I would definitely recommend it for anyone from a newbie to a MUA.

Do you want MAC warehouse sale tickets? All your Questions answered here! _ UPDATED

This is an invite only sale.. Tickets are the only way to gain entry!

I don't recommend this but...if you don't have a ticket.. it doesn't hurt to go down to the sale and ask the ladies in line if they have extras.

I've seen it before and 9 times out of 10 the girl gets a ticket. This is not a thing to do if you don't have a strong sense of character because rejection sucks.. and you might go home empty handed!

These are FREE tickets to employees to give out to their friends and family but people make a business out of them by selling them on kijji and craigslist. They can range from $10 to $50 dollars!

If you do buy off the internet make sure they have a gold stamp because the ones without are fakes!

The sale is located at Markham Fairgrounds which is located in Markham. This place is in the middle of frigging NO where... When my girl and I went the first time we got LOSS hardcore.

The MAC warehouse isnt actually in Markham fairgrounds...BUT it's probably the only place that big to hold all that makeup!

This event can happen anywhere from 3 to 4 times a year. This year I've seen spring, summer, fall & winter! I went to Spring, Fall & Winter..LOL. I know. The sales are always held as a 3-day event and are usually take place on a friday, saturday and a sunday.

The sale is divided into 3 rooms.

The first room has stuff like makeup bags, train cases, concealers, eye pencils, nail polish, eyeshadow quads, perfume and etc...

Second room has brushes, foundations, collection sets, eye shadows / pigments...etc

Third room has blushes, compacts, bargin tables, lipsticks./lip glosses, perfume sets and cash check outs

MAC also gives out free gifts at the end and has a cancer donation table. Where they sell 3 to 4 items in a gift set for cancer!

Quick facts:
  • you can only buy 4 of each item
  • go the first day because things sell out fast!
  • be prepared for lines

I hope this post helped!

Makeup Mixshop Haul+ Reviews

I want to thank The Makeup Mix shop for allowing me to try out some of the new items in her shop!

I got mostly E.L.F stuff & Jessie's Girl products. I'm going to highlight a few items.

I'm a big E.L.F fan.. yes I know some products are better than others but if it's $1.00 and it works for you, stick with it!

So far i'm really feeling the eyebrow stencils.
It comes with 4 stencils for only a dollar!!!

Right now I am just looking for a perfect matte brown for my if you have any suggestions let me know!!

I got 3 ELF mineral Lipglosses:
from left to right-
Trendsetter, Trophy Wife & Pageant Princess
$3.00 each
  • These glosses are very SHEER..which I wasn't expecting because of the colors in the tube are so vibrant.

    • They have no smell.

    I would recommend these glosses for girlies on the go. Perfect if you just want to moisturize your lips to go to the store or for walk. I keep one at work and one in the car!

I'm a mascara fiend so I had to try the waterproof lenghtening & volumising mascara. $3.00 each

Honestly I have nothing really bad to say about it. I really feel like it lenghtens more than it voluminizes..does that make sense? LOL

I love wear this mascara to work because it doesn't flake and it looks natural.

 These are all good items to try out! For the price you can't go wrong!

NOTE: These products were sent to me courtesy (free) of Makeup Mix Shop. This review+Haul are all my own opinions. My review was not compromised due to the fact theses products were  free.
