There’s no time like the present to finally own a full matching, quality set of makeup brushes. But we realize, price dilemma. We’ve all been there, pinning and cyber shopping brush options only to chicken out right before we hit the purchase button. One brush for $16 or so we can justify. Maybe even that amazing foundation brush that’s a little more than double that, but a whole set of brushes that will put us back a pair of shoes, a weeks worth of Starbucks and maybe having to skip paying the light bill for a month? Um no, and our TV financial evangelist, Suze Orman, would not approve of such financial foolishness. Balling on a budget is always a good idea until one can afford a splurge which is why you’ll be happy to know that this Premium Synthetic Kabuki Makeup Brush Set–the entire set, the whole kit and kaboodle–costs only…drum roll please.

If there's any time of year that you absolutely should be wearing red lipstick, that time is right now! Why not go for a dark red matte lip? It's as sweet as red velvet cake on your mouth.

This lightweight formula won't cake, fade, or rub off. And it works great on dry, combination and oily skin and finishes silky and matte.

it would be refreshing to see more contrast in beauty. less perfection and more real. more of what people really want to do with their natural born canvases but dare not to in order to keep in line with “the beauty rules.” there are books full of rules written by well meaning people that strike down the idea of contrasts that are perceived to be too strong. juxtapositions can be beautiful. in their so-called harshness is where the contrast plays with the eyes and makes you notice something that you may have never before. like a woman’s beautiful full lips.

i’d wager to say that most of our grandmothers and mothers owned at least one red blush. my mother did. a woman like many other black women of the ill fated, orange-tinted, Fashion Fair generation, there was at least one vibrant, brownish-red blush compact that my mom absolutely loved and red latex sponge applicator floating around our house at any given moment. i loved to sniff her Fashion Fair makeup (i’m digressing but true heiresses to FF mothers know what i’m talking about). looking back, it was genuinely 80’s on my mom but she felt pretty in it and was pretty in it because with her radiant smile, it transformed on her face out of the compact.
