Sigma Brushes, BH Cosmetics Palettes, Ebay & Great Glam Purchases!



A few weeks ago, I received some Sigma & BH Cosmetics Items. I was really excited about the items I purchased since I heard wonderful things on Youtube about them.




I purchased the Sigma E60 Large Shader Brush & The E65 Angled Brush. I adore the angled brush for winging out eyeliner, whether dramtic or subtle. Its become a staple brush for me. 

The Large shader brush was also a good purchase, but I still haven't found something I use it consistently for. I like it for blending eyeshadow near the inner corners of the eyes for an evened out look, but I have other brushes for that. Perhaps I have to use it for longer, but its been almost 3 weeks since I purchased it, and it hasn't wowed me. Perhaps Ill use it for something on the face.

That being said, I have been happy with my Sigma Purchases so far!

 . . . . . . . . 

I noticed that some of the Beauty Gurus on Youtube have been using BH Cosmetics items lately. I have seen many reviews/tutorials with the Party Girl Palette, and the Blush & Contour Palette. I purchased both when BH Cosmetics was having a sale a few weeks back, and I only paid $22.00 for both, which is a pretty sweet deal. I had a coupon code as well.


I have been using this palette for only 2 weeks, so I cannot give an in depth review of it yet. I still haven't used all of the colors. So far though, the colors I have used are very decently pigmented, and blendable to. They are slightly powdery, but not enough to be bothersome. I've seen the other palettes BH Cosmetics carry on Ebay, I believe BH Cosmetics just slaps their name onto the 120 palettes shimmer/matte E/S Palettes. I would suggest getting those on Ebay, they don't appeal to me though. I have enough eyeshadow as is.


I have a bit of a love/hate thing going on the with the Contour & Blush Palette. The contour and highlighting shades are amazing! I adore them, and use them all daily. The blushes are another story- unfortunately I find them a little blotchy, and I find myself having to apply one of my MAC blushes over them to fix them up. That being said, I wish they strictly had a palette for contouring, as I have a ton of go-to MAC Blushes. 

Unlike the 120 Palettes, I have yet to see the Party Girl Palette & the Contour/Blush Palette on Ebay. I have even seen products that Coastal Scents carry on Ebay for wayyy cheaper. So if you want a better deal, check out Ebay. The only thing your paying for with other companies is the label they are smacking on inexpensive palettes, and upping the price.

Off topic, I was at the Dollar Giant picking up some chocolate lol and stumbled upon LA Colors products. They are sold on CherryCulture.com- and I've been curious about them. Everything was only $1.25 

I purchased two loose eyeshadow pigments-

I also made my weekly Great Glam Haul. I'm proud to say that I didn't purchase anything from them this week :) Nothing really appealed to me this time. Also, for the first time in the 3 years I have been ordering with them, I got slapped with a customs fee! it was pricey to. I always get my order in my mail box with no customs at all, but not this time. I'm dreading my next 2 orders arriving. I made them before I even knew I would get charged. I'm hoping I don't get more, but if I do then I wont be ordering with then anymore, its just not worth it.

Here's what I got last week-




I also purchased this adorable shirt from Ebay!


After it arrived, I fell in love. I ordered one in White, and one that has Stripes. They only carry this up to a size 6 and the fit is perfect for me. I might purchase this in Pink, Black & Grey as well.


I have a few purchases that I cannot wait to share. 

Hope all of you have a great week-

XOXO
