The BIZ are longtime fans of Beauty Junkees, particularly their makeup brushes and sponges.  We were thrilled when they expanded to offer cosmetics, and of course not much makes us happier than eyeshadow.  Today we have two great eyeshadow options from Beauty Junkees –  a palette and some single eyeshadows – to share with you and your eyelids.  Prepare to drool over some gorgeous shades!!Beauty Junkees LE 28 Eyeshadow Palette

BEAUTY-JUNKEES-LIMITED-EDITION-EYESHADOW-PALETTE-2017-2_1024x1024Lisa shares the Limited Edition 28 piece eyeshadow collection ($119)

This palette seems pricey, but let’s do some math…although I’ll need the help of a calculator because math has never been my strong suit!  The gorgeous LE 28 Piece Eyeshadow Palette from Beauty Junkees costs $119, and if we just count the eyeshadows that’s $4.25 per eyeshadow.  Beauty Junkees LE 28 Palette

The eyeshadows can all be purchased separately for $6, which automatically makes this a great deal. However, even that math is misleading because you also get the beautifully sturdy palette with a full mirror, as well as a dual-sided eyeshadow brush.  That makes this palette a terrific value – that is, if the eyeshadows are good – and they are!!

LE 28 Piece Eyeshadow Palette from Beauty Junkees

The texture of the eyeshadows is a bit powdery, but they have tons of pigment and are super blendable.  I am able to build them up easily for impressive color impact, and the shades are gorgeous, ranging all the way from white to black.

Marcia shares some singles and an eyebrow gel

Since Lisa told you about this amazing set of eyeshadows I am ready to tell you about a few singles, their terrific magnetic makeup palette and their clear brow gel. These are all items that you would love to own.

The Large Black Empty Magnetic Palette with Mirror is fabulous for any blush, highlighters or eyeshadows you own or plan to buy. This is easily the sturdiest palette I own.

Beauty Junkees Empty Magnetic Palette

Beauty Junkees Empty Magnetic Palette

I own several empty palettes that I’ve filled with my own eyeshadows and blushes but there isn’t one that I’d consider traveling with except for this Beauty Junkees one. It holds an incredible amount of cosmetics. Shadows the size of Beauty Junkees own, MAC pans, Makeup Geek pans, Make Up For Ever pans, and so many more fit in here securely. You can fit 28 of those pans in this $19.97 palette. It’s deeper than most, has a very heavy duty magnetic bottom, and closes firmly. It even comes with a Beauty Junkees double ended brush. With all the cosmetics that BJ now sells this is a necessity in my book.

Beauty Junkees Oh Deer, Citrus, Steel Wool, Beam of Light, and Blink Pink

Beauty Junkees Oh Deer, Citrus, Steel Wool, Beam of Light, and Blink Pink

These are the 6 singles I have and I plan on buying a few more once I see what Lisa shares today.  While the Limited Edition 28 Piece Eyeshadow Collection is sold on Amazon and BeautyJunkees.com these singles are only available on their website. ($6 each).

Beauty Junkees Oh Deer, Citrus, Steel Wool, Beams of Light, Blink Pink

Beauty Junkees Oh Deer, Citrus, Steel Wool, Beams of Light, Blink Pink

Oh Deer is a matte light brown. This is the type of shade that can be used as a transition shade

Citrus is a bright metallic orange just like the name implies, it’s like the sun on a very shiny day.

Steel Wool is a charcoal gray with interest, it has just the slightest amount of shimmer to it making it more than your typical gray. You can use this with a light hand for a soft gray or layer it for a smokey eye.

Beams of Light is a must have. It’s an iridescent pink white that is unicorn special. They call it pure white but it’s that pink that gets my heart racing.

Beauty Junkees Beams of Light

Blink Pink has a satin finish and a teeny amount of glimmer to it. It’s a soft pink that’s not chalky.

Beauty Junkees singles and clear eyebrow gel

Beauty Junkees singles and clear eyebrow gel

Beauty Junkees Clear Eyebrow Gel is just one of 4 brow gels they have. Clear is a great tamer. I have BJ’s Brown Eyebrow Gel to give me color and tame and now this Clear one (also available in Auburn and Blonde). I like to use this over a powder eyebrow shade so that my brows are smoother and the powder lasts the day. It is not gooey nor does it dry hard. It leaves a natural look so that only you know it’s there and it makes you feel confident about your eyebrows lasting through any kind of weather or conditions.

With Beauty Junkees you can be assured that your products are MADE IN THE USA, PARABEN FREE, GLUTEN FREE, AND CRUELTY FREE. WOOF! We’ve been so impressed with the products that we’ve been using from Beauty Junkees and can’t wait to see what else is on the horizon.

Beauty Junkees 2017 – amazing additions

Beauty Junkees new additions

Beauty Junkees new additions

It’s always exciting when a brand that you’ve had great success brings out new products in their line but it’s especially a thrill when it’s Beauty Junkees. We have watched them grow exponentially and we are so happy that they are keeping us in the loop by sending along new products. For 2017 Beauty Junkees has recently expanded their line with 5 items that you don’t want to miss. Beauty Junkees is a paraben free, cruelty free line with most products made in the US. Let me share what I’ve been enjoying. (Read on for a discount code too.)

MAGNETIC MAKEUP PALETTE w/MIRROR ($19.97)

Beauty Junkees Magnetic Palette

Beauty Junkees Magnetic Palette

This large, deep magnetic palette is wonderful for all the pans you have. Brands like MAC, Makeup Geek, Ofra, Trish McAvoy, and many independent brands sell shadows, blushes, bronzers and more in pan form to both save you money and space. Beauty Junkee’s version has a full mirror, closes tightly and contains a great Beauty Junkee two sided eyeshadow brush. It’s actually their pro Tapered Blender and pro All Over Shader Brush combined into 1 fantastic brush.

Beauty Junkees Magnetic Palette

Beauty Junkees Magnetic Palette

The palette can hold 28 standard size shadows and accommodate different sizes and shapes (like domed shadows) with ease. It comes with a set of 10 magnetics for products that aren’t magnetized already. This has been so great for me since I bought more Makeup Geek pans along with some from Maskcara and Anastasia Beverly Hills. Now I can organize by color with ease.

TINTED BROW GEL ($12.97) The new tinted brow gel comes in 3 shades: Blonde, Dark Brown, and Auburn. It is so rare to find an auburn shade in brow products that Beauty Junkees needs kudos for that alone. The brow gel is great for all brow conditions. If you have full brows already it’s a way to add some color and groom them so they stay neat all day. If you have skimpy brows (ahem, like mine) then it gives you the ability to fill them in without any fake look. And if there are gray hairs popping up, and it does happen, you can easily cover them with this natural looking brow mascara.

CONCEALER and BROW HIGHLITER DUOS ($14.97) These duos are available in 2 shades: Cool Beige + Beige Highliter and Warm Beige + Gold Highliter. I have to admit that I love them both and I’m glad I didn’t have to make a choice.

Beauty Junkees Cool Beige Concealer Highliter Duo

Beauty Junkees Cool Beige Concealer Highliter Duo

The Cool Beige is a lighter and slightly cooler concealer while the highliter is a cool non-yellow gold. It’s very brightening and looks wonderful just under the arch of your brow, in the tearduct area to brighten, and even on the cupid’s bow of your lips. It’s surprisingly subtle which is great on older eyes.

Beauty Junkees Warm Beige Concealer Highliter Duo

Beauty Junkees Warm Beige Concealer Highliter Duo

The Warm Beige pencil is a darker and warmer concealer but it’s not too dark for my fair skin. I love the gold shade of the highliter end. I think it looks great along the lashline or even on the waterline (though it doesn’t last long there).

These pencils are so creamy and easy to work with.

LIP PUMICE STICK EXFOLIATOR ($10) is perfect for this winter especially. I find it has two purposes for me: preparing my lips to be their smoothest for lipsticks (especially matte lip color) and helping with chapped lips. This moisturizes your lips but be sure you wipe it off before applying any color on your lips since you don’t want the little bits to linger. It has a light minty smell to it that reminds me of candy canes.

FAB NAILS ($14.97) is the perfect alternative for those who don’t polish their nails or who don’t do it on a regular basis. In some professions you are told not to wear nail polish even but you want your nails perfectly groomed. That’s where Fab Nails comes into play.

Use it as a buffer in a back and forth direction to seal the keratin layers together. It doesn’t leave your nails thin like other files do. But it will help you smooth your nails. If you use this as a buffer you can go weeks and still have a shine. After using it’s best to wash it with water, dry it and store it in the protective case.

My husband has confiscated it which I don’t mind since his nails were looking pretty ratty prior to owning Fab Nails.

Anything your heart desires from Beauty Junkees can be yours for 15% less. Picking something is going to be hard since I’m loving everything I have from Beauty Junkees. And you will too.  —  Marcia

Beauty Junkees love this Powder Highlighting and Contour Kit

Beauty Junkees Powder Contour Kit

Beauty Junkees Powder Contour Kit

It came as a surprise to us that Beauty Junkees has expanded their business to include cosmetics. We have been fans of their amazing brushes and makeup sponges for quite a while but didn’t expect that their next venture would take them into cosmetics. It’s a welcome addition and we’re happy to have been sent the Powder Contour Kit to wear and show you the versatility.

Beauty Junkees Powder Contour Kit

Beauty Junkees Powder Contour Kit

The kit has six shades with 3 highlighting powders and 3 contour shades. The top row contains Banana, Vanilla, and Sand. There is no shimmer to these powders, although Sand has a subtle glow, so they can be used all over your face. Use them for a touch of color or use them as your finishing powder. I have shimmery highlighters so this is a great change of pace for me.

There’s more variation in the shades than my iPhone photo shows but they are subtle differences.

Beauty Junkees Powder Contour Kit : from top Banana, Vanilla, Sand

The bottom row is where the contouring comes in with Fawn, Java, and Truffle. You can easily build the colors up if you want. Since my skin is so fair I like to use the Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Flat Angled Brush to get a light covering that blends easily.

There’s more variation in the contour powders and there’s a shade for everyone. This is the palette you want for everyday especially if you live a conservative lifestyle or work in a conservative workplace. You can always add shimmer to jazz it up but if you start with a matte palette like this you’ll be much happier.

Contouring takes some great cosmetics and some great brushes. Marcia and I have reviewed quite a few Beauty Junkee brushes over the past few months – read the reviews HERE – and today I am very excited to tell you about the latest set we sent to review, the Contour Kit.

I’m going to jump right to the price – right now it’s on sale for 50% off – just $25 right now on Amazon. That is one heck of a sale for a really terrific set.

This set comes in a sleek brush case 9.25″ W X 4.5″ H X 0.5″ D (expandable) that will fit up to 15 makeup brushes. It’s perfect for storing your brushes as well as for travel.

All of the brushes work with both cream and powder contour products. I am impressed with the quality of the brushes, particularly at that price!  The brushes have copper ferrules with dual crimps, and the handles are wood. They feel substantial but not too heavy.

Here are the brushes included:

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit proSculptor Brush

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit proSculptor Brush

pro Sculptor Brush This brush has narrow, dense bristles with dome shape for perfect application and blending; flat sculpting brushes apply a harsh line and do not blend. I love this brush for powder blush and bronzer. It’s soft but firm and it blends like a dream.

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit proDuo Fiber Brush

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit proDuo Fiber Brush

pro Duo Fiber Brush This brush has short and long bristles for feather like application that allows for buildable color. Where this brush excels is with powder highlighters. It’s great for creating a soft glow.

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit proHighlighter Brush

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit proHighlighter Brush

pro Highlighter Brush This brush has soft bristles with a small taper point for applying highlighter to narrow facial features. I find I use this most on my nose – lighter highlighter down the bridge of my nose and darker contour on the sides.

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit proDetailer Brush

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit proDetailer Brush

pro Detailer Brush This is a small precision eye shadow brush with narrow dome shaped bristles for applying to small features, such as nose, under lower lip, and inner corner of eye. Yup, it works great, and of course it’s also terrific for applying eyeshadow.

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit Makeup Sponge

Beauty Junkees Contour Kit Makeup Sponge

pro Contour Sponge  Ok, so this isn’t a brush – it’s a makeup sponge that is a latex free and flat angled blending sponge that creates an airbrushed finish with cream contours. This sponge is nice and soft, and the flat edge is very handy, particularly for contouring cheeks.

The bottom line?  This is a wonderful brush collection that you will use for far more than contouring and highlighting. Be sure to pick this up while on Amazon it’s still on sale!  – Lisa

Bouncing my way to beauty with Beauty Junkees

I’ve been a devoted bouncer ever since the first pink makeup sponge became available. At the time I was the editor of a beauty forum and we’d talk at length about this sponge and wonder who would spend $20 on a sponge. I wasn’t the first to take the plunge but I was the second and it converted me to a believer. I bounce my foundation on for a perfectly smooth and blended application.

I no longer have to spend $20 for one sponge though because Beauty Junkees Pro Makeup Blending Sponge set was sent my way and I’m in bouncing heaven. Beauty Junkees sponge set gives me 4 uniquely shaped sponges to use for … hold onto your seat … $14.97. I was amazed by the price but what amazes me more is the quality of these sponges.

Beauty Junkees Pro Makeup Blending Sponge Set

Beauty Junkees Pro Makeup Blending Sponge Set

There are 4 sponges so there’s even enough for the person that “borrows” your beauty items (and doesn’t return). But you might just fight for the right to use them all.

Starting with the basics, this is the best way to use these blending sponges:

  1. Get the sponge wet by holding it under water while softly squeezing the sponge so it absorbs the water. You’ll notice that it doubles in size and becomes soft.
  2. Now gently squeeze out the excess water since you don’t want this drenched. It’s recommended to dry it with a soft towel too so that the sponge feels damp.
  3. It’s application time – apply the product onto the dampened sponge and bounce, aka stipple, the product onto your skin. Do NOT rub back and forth or you take away to specialness of using the sponge.
  4. There are so many products you can use with a sponge so having a variety is an ace in the hole. Try skincare, concealers, blush, and foundation.

Let’s start with the Pink Teardrop since that’s the standard one that everyone wants. To me this is the perfect sponge. I use the bottom for foundation on my entire face. The curve allows it to blend well along my jawline while the point is great for the area around my nose and eyes.

Beauty Junkees Pink Teardrop

The Purple Pear can be used for all of the above areas but because it has an ergonomically designed shape it helps with grip. It’s great for the wider areas of your face.

Beauty Junkees Purple Pear

Beauty Junkees Purple Pear

The Green Oval is the slimmest one and helps with more exact application. I like to blend cream blush with it since I can erase errors when I go too wide and I can blend the edges so that there’s no harsh lines.

Beauty Junkees Green Oval

Beauty Junkees Green Oval

The Blue Sculptor is the most versatile of the 4 brushes and the one I like to use dry at times. The flat bottom works well to dip into a loose transparent powder and bounce on my skin. It doesn’t pick up too much powder and once I’m done I can go over it to soften the look even more.  It’s also a great one for applying moisturizers, SPF, neck creams, and night creams.

Beauty Junkees Blue Sculptor

When I was reading the directions I learned how to clean these the best way. I never thought to do this but it works and you can do this with brushes too. Use olive oil along with soap and water. The rationale is that oil will clean oil. The first time I did this I was amazed at how clean my sponge came out. Use warm water to moisten the sponge, use a dime size amount of olive oil along with a gentle soap. Massage the sponge under running water until there’s no makeup residue coming out. Then squeeze out the excess water and let it air dry. I love this method.

4 sponges, 4 + uses and 4 beautifully bright colors can now make up your sponge wardrobe from now on. Beauty Junkees is sold on Amazon with free shipping if you have Prime or have the minimum Amazon order to receive free shipping. At $14.97 currently it’s a total steal ($3.74 per sponge!). The quality is excellent and the uses many.

Are you a bouncer? Beauty Junkees can make you one!! — Marcia

MARCIA HAS THE MINI KABUKI 5 PIECE SET

I’m so excited about this makeup brush set. These are unlike any brushes I have in my vast collection. I can’t get over these brushes and they are currently on sale for only $19.97. I’m shocked. There are 5 brushes that come in a makeup bag and they are among the most useful brushes I have. These are considered to be eye makeup brushes but I didn’t realize that at first so I used them for everything. These brushes are so versatile.

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Set (Eye Makeup Brushes: 5 pc Precision Brush Set)

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Set (Eye Makeup Brushes: 5 pc Precision Brush Set)

There’s a brush in this kit for every use you have: blending, contouring, application, applying concealer, and more. The brushes can be used with both cream and powder products.

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Tapered Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Tapered Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Tapered Brush is my absolute favorite brush in the entire kit. This alone is worth the price of the kit. There’s a very popular brush from Sephora’s house brand that this is so similar to but this is even better since it’s more tapered. This is terrific for applying concealer under your eyes. I use it with concealer and corrector and it makes me smile every time I use it. Fabulous brush!

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Flat Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Flat Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Flat Brush has a totally flat top. This is can be used for just about anything on your eyes. I’ve used it to apply all over color and blend mostly. I’ve also used it with cream blush, especially those hard to get into pots, to apply it to my cheeks.

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Angled Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Angled Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Angled Brush is the one I use on my eyes the most. I like it to apply browbone color and for blending. It’s also great to apply a subtle highlighter along my upper cheekbones and above my brows.

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Round Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Round Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Round Brush is a little love! The bristles are softly rounded at the top. The brush is perfect for blending in all those hard to reach places like around your nose and in the inner corner of your eyes. This applies color like it was born for that job. It probably was.

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Flat Angled Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Flat Angled Brush

Beauty Junkees Mini Kabuki Flat Angled Brush is the 5th brush and you’ll find just as much use for this as all the others. This soft angled brush makes quick work of blending and making sure there are no sharp edges. Use this to buff your powder blush and you’ll see it glow.

I’ve got nothing but praise for this set. At $19.95 you need this to complete your brush wardrobe.

While all of Marcia’s brushes are for the eyes, mine are for the face. True to the kabuki name, all of these brushes are thick and compact with very dense bristles. The handles are long with some heft, giving more control than a traditional squat kabuki brush. These brushes are incredibly soft yet have the firmness needed to handle thicker face products, and they can all be used with powder or cream products. I am astounded at the range of finishes I can get – everything from super sheer to complete coverage.  The price is definitely right – only $39.97 for all five brushes plus the awesome brush holder, which is a normally $84.85.

The Flat Kabuki Brush is an amazing foundation brush and it also is a perfect choice for finishing powders. I’ve tried it with powdered foundation, tinted moisturizer, thick cream foundation…it works with them all and is a terrific stippling brush that creates a natural look.

Beauty Junkies Angled Kabuki Brush

The Angled Kabuki Brush is a go-to brush for applying blush, or for highlighting and contour work. This is a beautiful blending brush that is silky soft but it really grabs product, so it’s best to go light and build up intensity.

Beauty Junkies Round Kabuki Brush

The Round Kabuki is the most like a traditional kabuki brush, although the longer handle makes it easier to maneuver more carefully. I use this brush for blending  and for buffing on mineral foundation powders.

The Flat Angled Kabuki is awesome for contouring and for bronzer, as well as for using with tinted moisturizers, BB creams and CC creams. I think this is my favorite of the five brushes and I especially love it for contouring. It is extremely versatile and I find myself using it at all different angles for various looks.

Beauty Junkies Tapered Kabuki Brush

The Tapered Kabuki brush is for use under the eyes and around the nose, all those odd areas that are difficult to get to with a traditional shaped brush. It’s especially good for blending out creamy concealers.

I can’t rave enough about how wonderfully soft the synthetic bristles are and the brushes are easy to clean. The brushes are truly fantastic, and I think the biggest surprise for me was just how much I also love the Travel Brush Holder.  It not only holds these wonderful brushes, it also provides covered storage for them.  The snap sides are particularly nice for keeping brushes safe for travel.  The Brush Cup Holder measures 3.5″ DIA X 8.75″ H and is big enough to fit even more brushes – maybe the set Marcia reviewed!

For a limited time, you can buy any 1 Kabuki Brush for $11.97, or get the set of 5 Brushes with a FREE Travel Brush Holder for $39.97 (value $84.85). This offer and these brushes are so good that if you don’t snap up a set, I will be shocked!

We love the high quality, the practicality, and the price for both brush sets.  These brush sets are ones you will want to add to your cosmetics collection!
