It Cosmetics No-Tug Heavenly Luxe Dual Shadow Brush - $24 - a 100% cruelty-free brush that offers an ultra-plush feel with a soft-touch rubberized handle for comfortable use. I actually never realized just how much some of my other eye brushes do tug at my eyelids until I tried this one - it really does apply shadow without pulling! And while I do love double ended brushes for the convenience factor, they are a pain to store - I keep the rest of my bushes in a jar upright but in order to not screw up the bristles, it needs to be stored flat!
Dali Powder Brush - $24.95 - a large, soft and fluffy brush that's made with goat hair which makes it great to use for powder, bronzer, buffing and blending. I particularly like it because while some big brushes tend to pick up too much powder so you either end up with too much on your face or wasting a bunch - this Dali brush picks up and deposits the perfect amount (without shedding)!
Sephora Classic Travel Refillable Powder - $24 - a multi-use travel brush with a loose-powder container and mirrored top. I far prefer a loose powder to pressed but up to now, couldn't find a mess-free and easy way to make loose powder portable - problem solved! With a travel-friendly, refillable brush and an easily opened base container, it's perfect for any powder foundation, blush, bronzer, or shimmer that fits inside any purse or travel tote.
Lisamarie - the happiest day of my life was the day Sephora opened it's first store in Canada (thankfully in Toronto), second happiest day was before this when Sephora finally started shipping to Canada, third I guess would be my wedding day (but don't tell my husband where he ranks please!)
*** Christelle - I enjoy shoe shopping and drinking martinis...preferably at the same time!
