Senna Cosmetics brushes are the way to go

Senna Cosmetics brushes I love

Senna Cosmetics brushes I love

I have a few things I have to get off my shoulders. I hope you are ready.

* I love cosmetics!

* I adore cosmetic brushes!

* Senna Cosmetics is one of my all time favorite brands.

That wasn’t too bad for either of us I hope. Earlier today I reviewed some of Senna’s cosmetics including their In the Mood for Nudes collection, Slipcover Foundation, HD Eye Lift and Baja Matte Bronzer. That Makeup Wars review was so long it spilled over into this one that’s specifically about the Senna brushes I have. I’ve owned 4 of these for years and I was lucky to receive 5 more from Senna.

Airbrush Blender brush 25 ($40) is what people call a skunk brush. It’s black bottom fibers are dense while it fills out into looser white fibers that do the work. This is a brush you need in your collection if you don’t have one already. It’s a multi-tasker that works great for bronzer and highly pigmented powders. I use it too for a highlighting powder to give an airbrush appearance. “Softly shagged dual synthetic and natural hair and dual length brush seamlessly applies and blends liquid, cream and powder foundations and bronzers.”

Foundation 39 Brush ($30) is a brush that everyone needs to have in their brush collection. It’s possible to apply foundation with your fingers but you don’t always get the ideal coverage that way. This brush is both soft and firm. The tapered point helps you in the crevices of your face, especially around your nose. It works equally well with liquid and cream formulas but it’s a necessity for a cream since your fingers just won’t cut it with something like Slipcover Foundation. If this isn’t enough to convince you, use it with moisturizer, primer or cream blush. See all the uses!!

Multi 24 Brush ($20) is one I didn’t know I was missing in my life until it came my way. I love this little guy. “This is the go-to tool for concealing, blending, un-smudging, priming and more.” What a treasure. You can use this at home or on the go. Just use it!! You’ll thank me.

Angle Brush 506 ($20) is a great blush brush that I’ve had for years. It’s so soft and so accurate. “Rounded front angle covers the apples of the cheeks and narrow tapered end softly blends color off the edge of the cheek naturally.”

Baby Face 21 ($30) has been a favorite of mine for so long. I use it for everything. The size of the brush head is wonderful for blending anywhere on your face. It’s great for a pop of color on your cheeks, for a touch of powder (Senna HD Eye Lift) under your eyes, and for highlighting areas especially when contouring. “A Senna favorite and must have! An ultra-soft, pampering brush to apply loose powder in eye area to set concealers and brush on highlighter powders. Great for spot blushing and dusting color onto eyelids.”

Concealer 12 ($18) is a synthetic cruelty free brush that does what it’s supposed to – it helps conceal! It’s on the firm side so that you can lay your concealer down and afterwards blend with it.

Deluxe Fluff 600 ($18.50) is a brush I use mostly for blending. It’s wide and soft. It’s very flexible. I’ve used it for an all over eyeshadow color but my favorite use is when my eyeshadows are all on and I use this to blend away the seams so my shadows are well blended.

Detailer 623 ($27) this is one of the first brushes ever created for Senna. It was designed to give a soft liner look. I find it works better for me to use it for a hint of color under my lower lashes. It can also be used on your brows or to apply lipstick precisely.

Senna Detailer 623

Brow Pro 40 ($20) is a double ended brush that meets all your brow needs. The firm angle tip on the brush side is great for precise work with powders. I like that it’s not bigger than my brows so that I control it, it doesn’t control me. And it doesn’t hurt like some brow brushes can. The other side is a spoolie (groomer comb) so that you can brush your brows both before and after makeup application. Use it first to tame your brows and get them into shape. Then use it after with a pomade to set your brows for an all day last.

These are only a fraction of the wonderful brushes from Senna. Out of these 9 brushes my must haves are the Brow Pro, Multi-Brush and Baby Face. These are unique and incredibly helpful. Which brushes would you pick? — Marcia

Makeup Wars starring Senna Cosmetics

Senna Cosmetics Nude Eyes, eyebrows, bronzer and cream foundation

Senna Cosmetics Nude Eyes, eyebrows, bronzer and cream foundation

This week the Makeup Wars bloggers each picked a favorite high end brand to share and maybe even convince you that their brand is the best. I chose Senna and the lovely ladies at Senna Cosmetics were kind enough to share some of the latest items. Lisa and I have reviewed a lot of Senna over the 5 years of our blog for several reasons.

1) We’ve been charmed by Senna for a dozen years. We started using it way before we began blogging. One of our biggest thrills was to meet and talk with Eugenia Weston at IMATS and have her personally recommend items for us.

2) Senna is an indie company owned by Eugenia Weston. She actually creates the products and doesn’t just put her name on something she’s bought.

3) Senna is cruelty free. Plus Senna Cosmetics are reasonably priced compared to so many of the higher end companies.

Senna matte nude eyeshadows

I’m going to share some of Senna Cosmetics newest products as well as long time favorites. For spring Senna is all about nude shades with their In the Mood for Nudes collection. The 5 main items in this collection are 4 matte eyeshadows and their Baja Matte Bronzer.

The Nude Matte eyeshadows are available in 4 shades. The difference in 3 of the shades is the undertone of them. All 3 of these are beautiful nudes to wear over your entire eye or in strategic places. What I love best about these is that my favorite under the brow shade was discontinued a few years ago and I’ve never found a replacement until now. It thrills me to have these 3 and these are getting daily use.

NUDIST is a neutral brown that’s great for lids or crease.

Using these gives you a beautiful neutral eye or you can add in a darker shade for more definition or glitz. While these are matte eyeshadows they apply like a satin, they don’t look chalky, they just look smooth.

Whatever you do, don’t ignore your eyebrows. If anyone knows eyebrows it’s Senna since Eugenia Weston created one of the first and most famous eyebrow kits, the Form-A-Brow Kit. I have both a Brow Gel and a Brow Shaper Duo in use.

SENNA BROW FIX is available in 3 shades (clear, golden brown, taupe) to set your brow shape, color your brows and control them. It has tiny texturizing fibers in it to make your brows look fuller. If you have full enough brows then use this to set them and add a little more color. Or if you are like me, then use them over a pencil or brow powder to lock in the color and shape.

Senna Brow Duo in Brunette

The Brow Shaping Duo also comes in 3 shades (Blonde, Brunette, Ebony) and is my preference. I’ve lost a lot of hair in my brows since my fall and I need the fullness and coverage this provides. The powder side is a micro fiber infused pressed powder and the pomade is a conditioning one. Brunette is a great match for me. My modus operandi is to apply the powder with the Brow Pro 40 brush, then apply the pomade over it. The combination of the two products intensifies the color as well as sets it in place. My brows last the entire day with this.

Senna Slipcover foundation in Buff with Foundation 39 and Multi 24 brushes

Senna Slipcover in Buff

I raved before about Senna foundation since Lasting Illusion Foundation in Alabaster is one of my very favorite liquid foundations. Along comes Slipcover Foundation and it’s right up there with the best. Slipcover is a cream to powder foundation that comes in an amazing 18 different shades plus 3 duos if you change shades in different seasons or if you want to do some contouring. This oil free foundation applies like a dream with a foundation brush like Senna’s Foundation 39 or the wonderful Multi 24 brush. It then transforms into a semi-matte powder. So it’s one and done. I don’t need to set with a powder but it doesn’t look like a powder finish. It stays flawless and looks good all day on me. I love that Buff (porcelain) is so light and a color that blends perfectly on my skin.

Senna HD Eye Lift with Deluxe Fluff 600, Concealer 12 and Baby Face 21 brushes

Senna HD Eye Lift with Deluxe Fluff 600, Concealer 12 and Baby Face 21 brushes

Now that we have our eyes done, what about under our eyes? That’s where Senna’s HD Eye Lift comes into play. This used to be called Mineral Eye Lift which I’ve used before down to the pan. It’s been revamped and it’s still as great as ever. Now it contains HD light diffusing mineral pigments that help brighten your under eye area. It’s a subtle lift that helps brighten under eye darkness, set your concealer and it can also highlight any areas of your face. It contains Golden Seaweed to help stimulate collagen repair while you are wearing it. Call me sold.

Senna Baja Bronzer with Airbrush Face 24 and Angle Blush 506

Senna’s Baja Matte Bronzer is a sheer bronzer which is especially good for people who are very fair toned. It’s neutral enough that it will look good on most skin tones. I’ve used it half a dozen times and it’s never turned orangey on me. It’s recommended to use a powder brush with it but depending on how much color I want I prefer my Angled Blush brush or my Airbrush Face brush. This contains light-reflecting pigments which are said to diminish the look of imperfections. If I can wear this comfortably than anyone can! I love that there’s no sparkle in it.

I’m sure you can tell why Senna was my choice as soon as Makeup Wars decided on this topic. It’s a wonderful cruelty free, independent line created by a strong woman who is famous for being one of the top makeup artists in the world. I’m proud to share Senna Cosmetics with you. Because this review is so long, I’m continuing it later today to share some more products. — Marcia

Update on IT Cosmetic’s 1/19 TSV

IT Cosmetics It's a New Year, Most Beautiful Skin promo picture

IT Cosmetics It’s a New Year, Most Beautiful Skin promo picture

I’m sad to say that the IT Cosmetics TSV from January 19th is sold out. It is such a wonderful kit. I received one from PR but too late to show the products but I also bought one for myself that will soon be for my very excited sister.  Most of the products will be available individually though so I want to share my update with pictures.it january tsv card

There were 5 fabulous products that were new to the kit. I have the kit in Fair and it’s a great shade for my fair skin.

CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream –
I’ve been a fan of IT Cosmetic’s Concealers for years and I own them all. This fuller coverage concealer is a treat because of the packaging (and of course the product). The packaging is called Cold Spoon Technology and it’s a refreshing touch of cool when you apply it. Just don’t squeeze too hard since a little goes a long way. This blends in beautifully and lasts. Plus it’s giving much needed SPF 50+ coverage.

CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact is the product I was most anxious to try and it was definitely worth the wait. This isn’t the cushion product that we’ve started to see. It’s their wonder CC+ Cream in compact form. Push the button and the product comes out. I use the sponge it comes with to apply. It’s wonderful for packing and it’s wonderful because it’s a fabulous CC Cream.

CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder is a talc free hydrating powder. It is beautiful over every foundation I’ve tried it with but especially over IT’s CC Cream. Not all powders are light enough for me but this is whisper soft.

The CC+ Angled Buffing Foundation Brush is the a terrific brush for the products in this kit and for all the other facial products I use. IT Cosmetic brushes are amazing and I wish I owned them all. Like all products from IT, they are cruelty free. If you read a lot of raves about them it’s because they are uniquely wonderful. This Angled Buffing brush is great for buffing in foundation as well as for use with a powder product. It’s also great for blending your blush so it looks seamless on your face.

Blurred Lines Smooth-Fill Lipstick ™ in LOVE.  What a pretty shade this is. Love is described by IT as a nude pink but I don’t find it to be nude at all. To me it’s a more universal sheer shade of a rose/pink. It’s formulated with nourishing ingredients that are meant to hydrate your lips: shea butter, jojoba, grape seed extract, cherry oil and hyaluronic acid.

You need to watch for these 5 items when they become available for purchase again. One of my favorite things about IT is when they have a TSV on QVC. The value is uncomparable.

Happy times with Pixi Beauty in January

Each month Pixi Beauty picks out a variety of cosmetics as their favorites. January’s picks are absolutely amazing. I was thrilled when I received this box of treasures and have been using them non-stop.

Pixi Beauty picks for January

Pixi Beauty picks for January

The products you see are: Correction Concentrate, Gilded Garnet Nail Polish, Natural Brow Duo, Large Lash Mascara, Lash & Brow Brush and Flat Liner Brush. Each one makes me love Pixi even more than I already did.

Pixi Beauty Correction Concentrate

Pixi Beauty Correction Concentrate

My absolute favorite of these products is Correction Concentrate ($12). This pot of wonder makes such a huge difference under my eyes. In real life I always felt my concealers worked well but in photographs I’d see nothing but darkness under my eyes. I don’t have great photography skills and have to take a dozen or more pictures to get one that’s slightly passable. Once I started using this soft peach I noticed that my undereyes looked brighter. The pot is small but potent. Once I can’t get my finger in I’ll use a brush since I want to use every drop of this wonderful product.

Speaking of brushes, the Flat Liner Brush ($12) has more than one job. Yes you can use it as a push brush for eyelining but you can also use this for the Correction Concentrate. Use it to dab the corrector under your eyes to hide all the sins.

Pixi Lash & Brow Brush and Flat Liner Brush

Pixi Lash & Brow Brush and Flat Liner Brush

Pixi Beauty Large Lash Mascara ($16) is one of two mascaras that Petra has created. This one has an oversized brush to pick up all your lashes. Not only is this a lengthening mascara but it adds great volume yet isn’t clumpy at all. It has all the attributes you want in a mascara – no clumping, no flaking, no raccoon eyes – all you get are beautifully defined lashes.

Pixi is also featuring their Lash & Brow Brush ($8). I love having a brush like this because it does double duty. I like using it to brush my lashes before I apply mascara. That insures an even look and makes sure my lashes aren’t sticking together. The bristles on the brush are well spaced out making it a more effective brush. My other use for this brush is for my eyebrows. It tames them and also helps distribute color through my brows more evenly.

Pixi’s Natural Brow Duo is getting its own post later today, that’s how much I have to say about it. What you need to know now though is that this has two sides – a waterproof brow pencil and a tinted soft-hold brow gel. With my new brow obsession, this is a fab product for me to be using.

Pixi Brow Duo in Natural Brown

I love when Pixi sends nail polish and the one they sent this month proves why. Gilded Garnet ($8) is one of their newest polishes and it’s a winner. It’s described as a deep burnished maroon with gold shimmer. I see it as more of a brown in most lights, a cinnamon brown, with some subtle gold shimmer in bright lights.

Every one of these 6 pieces are ones you want in your makeup collection. I’m loving Gilded Garnet Nail color as it’s a great fall and winter shade; I am mad about the Correction Concentrate and want to own one of these forever; and the Natural Brow Duo is getting a lot of admiration around here.

Becca The One Perfecting Brush

Becca - The One Perfecting Brush

Becca – The One Perfecting Brush

Sometimes you just can’t resist. The lure of the product is too much and before you know it you’ll find that product in a shopping cart and your fingers ready to hit “BUY NOW”. That’s how I am with brushes. I love a good cosmetic brush and always want to splurge on them.

BECCA THE ONE PERFECTING BRUSH is a brush to splurge on. I was sent this through my membership in iFabbo and it’s made my life that much happier. It’s called “The One” because it’s supposed to take the place of all your brushes or at least most of them. That’s not going to happen but it does work beautifully for certain applications.

Becca The One

Becca The One

Becca The One Perfecting Brush is supposed to cut your makeup application time in half by replacing 10 other brushes and tools: foundation brush, powder brush, contour brush, bronzer brush, stipple brush, fan brush, blush brush, kabuki and sponge. That’s a big job for anyone. The brush has a 3.5″ head that’s about 0.75′” wide. The Goat Hair bristles are very densely packed while being fluffy and soft at the same time.

Becca The One Perfecting Brush

Becca The One Perfecting Brush

Can I use this in place of 10 brushes? Not at all but what I can use it for makes it worth its $49 price. I’ve used this with foundation, pressed powder, loose powder, and blush without a problem. I can’t judge it on bronzer since I so rarely use that but I can envision it. The brush sides curve enough for blending the bronzer as you go along. With blush you need to be careful to only use one side of the brush so you don’t end up overdoing your application. It won’t be perfecting if you look like Bozo.

My favorite uses:

1) Liquid foundation – I dab the foundation on one side of my face and use the brush to blend it in. The brush doesn’t really absorb the foundation so it’s not using too much. I then switch to the other side of my face and then sweep the brush over the middle to merge the two. I always end with a swirling application since that seems to smooth away any lines that might be seen.

2) Loose powder – I use a loose powder (Purely Cosmetics Diamond Perfect Finish Powder or It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores) several times a week. I need a brush that will make the powder one with my skin and not just sit on top. Becca’s The One does a great job with that. This is another swirler.

3) Pressed powder (foundation or finishing powder) – I am still using Darac Beauty Sifted Blur powder (it’s over 3 years old). I hit pan a long time ago but it’s my favorite finishing powder and it’s no longer available. Becca and Darac are good friends now. The powder foundation I use is from It Cosmetics from a TSV (I love those things) and Becca The One is used with Celebration foundation now.

4) Blush – I only use this brush when I want a very natural blush look, something that gently enhances but doesn’t scream blush.

5) It has taken the place of my kabuki brush for powder but not for cream blush.

Becca are you the ONE?

Becca are you the ONE?

Is this brush “the one”? Not really but it’s a terrific brush for what it does do. It can take the place of many of your brushes and feel luxurious while it’s doing so. You won’t be tossing other brushes but you will be reaching for this often if you are anything like me. — Marcia

Getting to the bottom of the barrel with Spatty Daddy

Reality TV comes to the BIZ via the Spatty and the Spatty Daddy! This neat product was first pitched by creator Cheryl Rigdon on the reality television show Shark Tank. After the show, the Spatty took off. It’s a very small investment that quickly pays for itself.

The Spatty

The Spatty Combo Set

The Combo Set pictured above is $10.99. It includes both a 6 inch Spatty and a 12 inch Spatty Daddy. Both have strong but flexible handles, a pliable foam/sponge-like tip, and are dishwasher safe. The larger one is amazing for things like jars of peanut butter and the smaller one is a miracle for cosmetic and skin care products.

Spatty

Spatty and Spatty Daddy

the foam tip is hard but flexible

Spatty from the side

I was shocked when I realized how much money I wasted by throwing away bottles and jars that still had ‘stuff” inside. The flexible handle makes it easy to manuever around difficult to reach areas, and the tip is like a magnet the way it scoops up whatever you are digging for.

Spatty

I love anything I don’t have to wash by hand

The one that is truly swoon-worthy for a cosmetics lover is the regular Spatty. I’ve tried and loved other ‘product scoopers’ before, but alas the tip was either too inflexible or too big to fit into my beloved Reviva Makeup Primer jar.  I still kept the jar, just in case I could find something that would help me savor every drop…and I actually yelped when the Spatty slid right in!!

I was SO happy to see this...

I was SO happy to see this…

...which resulted in this!

…which resulted in this!

Think of all those little jars you have with a pump top that quit working when there is still so much good stuff inside.  You can also repurpose these as pastry decorating tools!  This is a great little gift for anyone, but you absolutely want to get one for yourself.

What really impressed me is how a portion of the profits are donated toward providing safe water to third world countries. Save yourself some money and help a really great cause with the Spatty and Spatty Daddy. You can find them at www.thespatty.com .   – Lisa

Touch Face Auto Make-up Device review and giveaway

Touch Face Auto Make-Up Device in two sizes

Touch Face Auto Make-Up Device in two sizes

We are so excited to introduce you to TOUCH FACE Auto Make-up Device. This device is an absolute gem and the two of us are thrilled that the company sent us a duo to share plus is providing the Tiara size for one of our readers. You want to know all about this machine so put on your reading glasses and sit back to learn.

Touch Face Crown and Tiara

Touch Face Crown and Tiara

TOUCH FACE is a handheld battery operated device that helps you with applications of skincare and foundations.

TOUCH FACE takes the place of all the other tools you’ve been using to apply foundation and it does so without getting your fingers messy at all. It applies in a circular patting motion with 5,000 automatic gentle pats per minute. This is unique because it doesn’t just vibrate, it uses a patting system.

Touch Face accessories

Touch Face accessories

Touch Face comes with two types of disposable puffs, called the Jelly Puff and the Marshmallow Puff. The Jelly Puff applicator is a silicone puff that helps your skin quickly and easily absorb nutrientrich lotions and creams onto your skin. The soft Marshmallow Puff applicator gently covers up blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles, and minimizes pores, giving your make up a perfect and glowing finish.

It was developed and made in Korea and is sold by Cosedifilo for £22.02 (Tiara) which is equivalent to $35.58 USD. We expected Touch Face to be really expensive so we were very pleasantly surprised to find out just how reasonably it is priced.

MARCIA’S SIDE: THE CROWN

Touch Face Crown

Touch Face Crown

There are several sizes of TOUCH FACE Auto make-up device and The Crown is the full size one. This is the one considered best for home use because it is taller but I wouldn’t have a problem traveling with this. It comes with its own stand to hold it but it also comes with a plastic cover for the sponge which makes it easier to take with.

Touch Face

Touch Face

From the day this arrived I’ve been infatuated with it. I’ve tried it with almost every foundation, tinted moisturizer and BB/CC Cream I own (which isn’t a small number). It’s made me fall back in love with certain products all over again. I haven’t used this in its alternative way of applying moisturizers for better absorption since I have other devices that I use but with the amazing vibration I feel, I know it would work well. With all my testing I’ve only found one foundation that it didn’t interact well with, all the rest look better than ever.

Touch Face dials

This gives me an airbrushed finish. Even with my 8X mirror I don’t see my pores. I practically need to be torn away from my makeup mirror since I’m so obsessed with the smoothness I see. It takes no extra time to use this, as a matter of fact I think it takes me less time. Their directions say to put the foundation directly on the white sponge but I prefer to dot it on my face and then use continuous circular motions to apply all over. When done I can redot if necessary where it doesn’t feel like I’ve used enough.

Touch Face turned on

Look at that baby go!! This is easy to use because it’s small enough to easily hold in my hand similar to how a brush would feel.

LISA’S SIDE: THE TIARA

Well, doesn’t the name of this little device just totally fit ME?? Every morning I grab my tiara, give my face a little massage, and I am good to go! Actually, I am not much of a diva, but this is definitely a tiara I am not giving up any time soon.

Touch Face the Tiara

Touch Face the Tiara

As you can see, the Tiara is smaller than the Crown, which does make it perfect for travel. I also really like it because my vanity is super crowded as it is; this smaller device is all I could fit amongst the products already there, I am rather ashamed to admit.

Marshmallow Puff

Applicators for Touch Face

Applicators for Touch Face

I do love both puffs and the only foundation I found that didn’t work with the Marshmallow was powdered mineral foundation. The Tiara truly gives an airbrush appearance without the expense and without the spray fallout. Once you use the Jelly Puff to apply moisturizer, you will wonder how you ever survived before without it. This may be the smaller version, but it packs the same punch, and it’s so cute! Plus you can win one for yourself, so ENTER NOW!!

THE GIVEAWAY:

Cosedifilo has generously provided the Tiara model for one of our readers while at the same time giving us a discount code to share with all of you. The code is BEAUTYINFOZONE and it’s worth 20% off your purchase. Believe us when we tell you that this would make the makeup lovers in your life ecstatic to receive this as a gift or you can wrap it up for yourself so you have something very special to open on a holiday. The giveaway is open through 10/31/13.
