Precision application

Last week I got some new brushes. Surprise surprise they are from Sigma.
A couple of weeks ago Sigma released their new collection of 4 precision brushes. These are pretty unique, and were a must purchase for me. The brushes included in the Precision kit are pretty much smaller versions of the Sigmax Kabuki brushes, including the new pointed tip brush.

P80 - Precision Flat
This is a small flat top brush, and is great for buffing concealer into small areas, and providing a flawless finish. This brush is great for cream and liquid product like concealer.

P82 - Precision round
This brush is pretty unique. It is designed to mimic finger tips in makeup application. The shape of this brush makes it ideal for applying products on and around the eyes. Eyeshadow bases and concealer apply well with this brush, and the shape makes it easy to get into tight corners other brushes might miss.

This brush is great for contouring. It provides a sharp,  defined  look whilst still blending the product.  Works well with powder and cream products.  This brush can be used for larger areas such as contouring the cheek, but  also for more detailed work, it is ideal for contouring the nose, or highlighting the cheek and eye areas.

P86 - Precision Tapered
This tapered brush is perfect for getting into tiny detailed areas. This brush works well for concealer under the eye, as well as highlighting. I enjoy using this brush because it is something a little different. I also cant wait to try the F86, the corresponding kabuki brush in the Sigmax collection.

I have loved trying out these brushes and finding different uses for them. I don't however think they are all essentials. Depending on your usage of makeup depends on which brushes you might get. I would recommend all of them, and I do like a variety of brushes in my collection, but notice how many of the uses overlap.
Including shipping to the UK these cost me around £35 which I thought was a good deal. And with no import duty I was pretty pleased.Thank you, Sigma Beauty!

Have you tried these out yet?

Party Nails

Here are the nails I wore on my night out this weekend. I absolutely love them!

I used ELF Purple Dream, and Mad as a Hatter from OPIs Alice in Wonderland collection for the accent nail and glitter tips. I had so many comments and compliments on my nails. Definitely will be trying something similar again.

Travel Perfume

I recently saw a travel perfume atomiser in Gemma's recent favourites video. I was all set to buy the item from the Travelo website, but decided to quickly check eBay first. Glad I did as I found the product at half the price. I chose the pink one, but there is a colour to suit everyone. Going to stock up on these for Christmas gifts!

It is so simple to fill up:
Just remove the spray cap from the perfume of choice,
Place the bottom of the atomiser over top of the perfume, and pump up and down.

As easy and convenient as that! I'm currently using Vera Wang Princess, and love that I can top it up as I please. My bag is heavy enough without carting around huge bottles of perfume.

Ring ring!

A little obsession of mine lately has been crazy oversized rings. The kind that are impractically heavy, or take up half your hand. I have picked a few up lately and my ring collection if forever growing. I wish I had some way to store them, as I am forever loosing a ring or two.
Here are my most recent:

I am not fussy where I get them from. These are a mixture of matalan, primark, ebay and JWLRY

eBay addict

I am a little obsessed with eBay finds at the minute. I am loving finding cute bags especially, but I could spend hours on there. I have so many items in my watched folder it's hard to know which to buy. I am trying to be a bit selective.
Here is my latest purchase.

This bow satchel bag is another "designer inspired". I absolutely adore it and the service from the seller was great.

To me the bag seems obviously fake, but my mum actually thought it was genuine leather. I absolutely love this bag, it is so practical for my day time junk I haul around with me. I love that I can use the long strap or just the handle for carrying. The bag hangs well either way.

This bag is available in so many colours there must be one to suit you!
