Powder Brush

  I purchased my first brush.  I bought some new mineral foundation so I decided I needed to buy a brush to apply it.  It was not very expensive.  It's called a high definition power brush.  I believe it's by the brand Paris Presents.  It's description is: "High-defintion is the latest technology in color cosmetics, developed for glamorous, picture-prefect results. This brush, with its tapered cut and quality design, works perfectly to give you that celebrity look every day."
   I really don't have much to compare this brush to.  I have used brushes that have come with products but they have never been anything special.  I picked this one because it was really soft, and I thought a powder brush would be versitile though I don't know that I'll use it on anything other than the powder foundation I bought.  It seems to work well.  It picks up the powder easily and is very soft like I said.  I would buy it again!  It's fun to use. :)

 This nail polish is called Mama-San by Sinful Colors professional.  I had never tried this brand out before but was drawn to the metallic rosy color.  It seemed appropriate for fall.
 It is very shiny and looks really nice in the sun-making it actually sparkle a little.  In regular lighting the sparkle is gone but the metallic shine is still there.  In these pictures I am wearing two coats.  I have only one coat on my toes and it looks just as nice and has lasted with no chips a few days.  For an inexpensive nail polish I think it's worth the buy.  I am not usually drawn to metallic polish but I was really drawn to this one.

The Body Shop Coconut Oil Hair Shine

This smells soooo yummy!!! It makes me think of summer and the beach!
 I have long hair so I find this product can make my hair a little greasy looking if I'm not careful making sure to only apply it VERY lightly.  I apply it mostly to the ends and lightly over the top layer-trying to get rid of the frizz. I don't feel like my hair really needs it because I have very healthy hair but it does make my hair smell good all day.
It is slighty sparkly but not really noticable when in your hair.
   The packaging claims that it "smooths, adds shine, conditions and repairs."  It says to "smooth over dry hair."  It is made with pure coconut oil and is for all hair types.
