When Marky was packing her stuff to take to California, I’m telling ya’-it was a nightmare. Her first reaction was to take EVERYTHING, which was of course impossible since we were driving down in a Nissan Altima. Everything wasn’t going to fit. In the end, I told her to pack as if she was going on a 4 month trip, meaning take half of everything you own LOL. Mama will bring the rest when she comes to visit HA.
Anyways, her makeup! Picking and choosing what to take was painful. In the end, she did a great job of choosing what she actually uses. And truth be told, sometimes I think I could use a good move like that to edit my makeup collection down to what I really use. And I just might do that pretty soon here actually-not move, but edit and pare down. I’m kind of getting tired of all the things around here. Too much stuff! Especially makeup brushes. I have so many at the moment, and only use like 4? Maybe 5? Okay, 6. Something like that anyways haha. Which is why I kind of think that the Sephora Collection All for One Full Magnetic Travel Brush Set($70.00) is kind of cool.
Sephora Collection All for One Full Magnetic Travel Brush Set is a six-piece brush set that has a pretty cool case. It’s not really tiny like some travel makeup brush sets. This one is pretty decent in size with a mesh pocket that you could actually fit your daily makeup in there if you were, you know, a sane person and not a beauty blogger. 😛
What’s ALSO really cool about the Sephora Collection All for One Full Magnetic Travel Brush Set is that you can switch around the brush heads. Custom, double-headed brushes you create, which for travel? Is kind of awesome you guys.
You see, there’s a two-sided magnetic handle-just one! The smaller brushes attach at one end and the larger ones at the other. Just click! and they’re attached to the handle with no wiggling at all. Almost rare-earth magnet tight. Have you ever tried to pry apart rare-earth magnets? GEEZ LOUISE those things stick!
Sephora Collection All for One Full Magnetic Travel Brush Set contains synthetic brushes by the way, which truth be told I prefer lately. They are just easier to wash and take care of, and always soft. And nobody’s hairs get yanked out for my benefit. I prefer that to be honest. You get a Powder Brush, an Angled Brush that’s great for blush, and a Foundation Brush, which I think works better as a really big concealer brush. And you get 3 eye brushes too-an Angled Shadow Brush that’s great for crease work, a smudge brush which I love, as I’m all about blowing out eyeshadow on my bottom lash line, and a Brow Brush to fill in brows.
Everything you could possible need for brushes when you’re on holidays, right?
Here’s a close-up of the powder brush so you can see the bristles. They really are soft and dense, so they do a great job of picking up product and bending it out. I really liked this set a lot. Yeah, you heard right-LIKED it. Marky loved it too, so I left it with her. The Sephora Collection All for One Full Magnetic Travel Brush Set is perfect for a limited-space, dorm-living, makeup junkie college student!
Well worth the $$ I say, but you know, like I always say-watch out for the sales Sephora has! You can probably scoop this up on sale in a couple of months for a great deal if you keep watching. Or pick it up during the Friends and Family sale, which is coming up pretty soon I hear.
Do you have special brushes that are just for travel? Or do you cram all of your regular brushes into a bag and take them with you?
I can’t believe it’s Thursday already. It’s one week I’ve been back now. And only 4 weeks until we go back to visit Marky for student’s day! Yeah, it’s kinda’ soon, but we had to. Alumni will apparently be there for the weekend. Terry is hoping to have a drink with John Lasseter LOL. Me, I’d love for Craig McCraken to be there-the guy who created The PowerPuff Girls and my all-time favourite cartoon ever, Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends. I still miss that show!
