Let’s Hear It For The Girls – PMD Beauty For Your Décolleté

This post is sponsored by PMD & the PRIMP network; all opinions are my own.    Beauty magazines have been warning us for years that all the anti-aging face cream in the world won’t help much with that youthful glow if you don’t take care of the rest of your skin.

brushes compared: Artis Oval 3 vs iBeauty #21

  Woohoo, I’m baaa-aaack! Sorry for the long break – it turns out that moving (even just across town) is a massive stress factory and time drain. But now real estate transactions are closed, stuff is moved and most importantly, my makeup & photo gear are unpacked. So now I give you: a much overdue comparison between an Artis brush (Oval 3) & one of the many cheaper ‘dupes’ (iBeauty #21). Now, these two brushes are very obviously different shapes, sizes  ...
