I know there are many fans of Sigma Brushes out there, but I can’t say I number amongst them as I think they have their hits and misses as every brand does. I do however, have a couple I like and use often and because they’re pretty affordable, I thought I’d introduce you to them.

We kick off with this, the Sigma E25 Blending Brush.

sigma e25 blending brush Sigma E25 Blending Brush : Affordable, Multi functional and Does the job

Mine comes with a shorter silver travel sized handle as it was a free gift with an order I made quite many years ago. It is however sold as a full sized brush with the usual long black lacquered handle for an affordable $12.

As the name implies, this is a blending brush for eyeshadow but over the years, I’ve found that it does a lot more than just blend shadow.

I don’t usually mess about with my nails but I recently came across a very interesting product (to me) that prompted me to dig out my long forgotten nail polishes again. They’d been so long forgotten I’d forgotten where I put them all LOL! Yes, I’m hopeless with nails.

But when I mess about with my nails, I want it to be quick. I don’t want to sit around for ages like a tai-tai waving my hands in the air or blowing on them to make them dry more quickly. Previously, I’d use Seche Vite but then I was introduced to this interesting product from Sephora.

The product is the Sephora brand Express Drying Oil and it’s supposed to be a product for quickly drying your nail polish. In 1 minute, they claim. Yes, colour me intrigued!

I’ve never tried something like this before, other than Seche Vite, have you?

save product skincare Your Say: Do you try to save on product when using your skincare?

I had a very interesting chat with a friend very recently about the lengths people go to, to save on product use when they’re using their skincare. This is especially so when using an expensive brand or product.

If a cream costs you RM400 or a lotion costs you RM300 you want to make sure that you make it last as long as possible, don’t you? Hopefully that way, your dollar/ringgit stretches further. I heard a strange story which I’ll narrate below of one method of saving, but I’d like to hear from you.

Do you try to save on using product when you’re using your skincare to make it last longer? What are the lengths you’d go to? Be honest now! icon wink Your Say: Do you try to save on product when using your skincare?

You know, when you’re immersed in beauty and seeing the newest and latest come out in the beauty scene week after week, you quite often get … for want of a better word… jaded. Let’s be honest. It takes A LOT to wow me these days. Otherwise it’s usually “Yes, that’s pretty but haven’t we already seen something similar?”

So, when I tell you that here’s a product that made me sit up and pay attention about 2 months ago, you betcha it’s something quite impressive. And it’s coming out of left field for me because it’s coming from Bobbi Brown, a brand from which I never quite expected a product that leaves me absolutely BURSTING to tell you all about it! icon biggrin Attention peeps! The Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner is a new holy grail product!
