Misc Beauty Tools -Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

on 1/16/2019 2:22:00 AM

Since I rarely wear foundation, I got the mini 4-pack version for concealer and cream blush. This is my first time using any type of blender sponge so I have no basis to compare this to other brands. To me, these feel very soft and bouncy. I like the mini size and the angled tip for getting inside the corners of my undereyes. I also like having 4 small ones for different products vs one big sponge to reuse / clean..

The only difficulty I'm having is cleaning and drying. I washed a couple of them with my regular face wash, and when that didn't work, some micellar water, but the concealer wouldn't come out. I thought it was just a stain but after rinsing and squeezing out, I laid them on a fluffy microfiber cloth to dry. The next day I poked one to see if it was dry (it wasn't), and squished concealer onto the cloth instead. So I guess I'll try squeezing it in a cloth while washing. I'm a little concerned about the time these tiny things take to dry since that can create a home for mold and bacteria. I'll try the windowsill trick someone suggested here.

Note: the mini 4 pack was $8 at my local Target, but under $5 at target.com.



Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Powder Brush

It's a big powder brush. Actually, the size is too big for my face. I can set my cheeks and forehead perfectly but you can not reach every area of your face. I prefer to work precisely with powder, so I use this brush rarely. But it does its job so it deserves 4 lips.

Tools -Real Techniques -The PowderBleu Collection

on 12/20/2018 9:45:00 AM

I am surprised that no one really talks about this line. It is amazing!

Long story short, The PowderBleu Collection includes around 5-6 various brush designs. These are cruelty-free, synthetic brushes that are supposed to mimic the feel and softness of expensive natural blue squirrel brushes. They are also specifically designed for powder products. I bought a few of these and must say that they have impressed me quite a bit.

They have more of a luxurious feel to them, compared to the brand's original line. They do cost a bit more, but if you think about it, these are well manufactured brushes that are true multitaskers. I personally use their B02 brush for my powder/blush/highlighter. They are ultra soft, gentle and easy to clean.

I highly recommend this line and if you want to know more, then check out my original review here (https://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/11/29/New-Makeup-Tools-Hot-Vs-Not). Hope it helps!

Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Deep Cleansing Gel

Crap. Consistency of raw egg white means it’s hard to control what comes out and it never cleans liquid product from bristles and it’s even struggled with darker powder products too. Friend had same experience from same product from totally different store too. I usually use mild shampoo or mild nice hand soap and will be going back to that.


Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Luminous Lip Set

£3.99 on Superdrug is a steal for this. I bought a set for my lipstick palettes and ended up buying two more just to have a couple more exfoliating brushes which are hands down better than any lip scrub or exfoliating lipsticks. Tin is really good for having them in handbag and mirror on lid is a nice touch. Easy to clean too.
