This is one of the composites I have been working on this week for a post for Monday on my pet blog. I added a bit of painted effect to this one for this post though.

This months theme is “Go There” which is a travel inspired bag that is covered in passport stamps. It’s pretty cute!

I received:

A SL Miss Glam sparkle everyday beauty sponge. I was pretty excited to try this since I hear Sam Schuerman talking about this all the time in her videos.

The shape reminds me a lot of my Flower Beauty Sponge which is my absolute favorite sponge but when I wet the SL Miss Glam sponge it did not expand very much…. Sam’s always gets all poofy like my flower beauty one but this one doesn’t so maybe I got a dud?? Anyway I have to be honest I was a bit disappointed in how it performed Sad smile  my foundation just kind of slipped and slided around my face and the sponge picked up a ton of product. I went and watched videos from the creator on her YouTube channel and she was applying it dry so I tried that the next day and it worked much better. So I dunno I will give it a bit more time using it to see if maybe the sponge just needs to be washed a couple times so it will expand properly. Retails for $17.50!

Red lips

Sugar Cosmetics arch arrival brow definer in the shade taupe tom.  I have used this twice and it’s okay but not something I think I would repurchase. The tip just seems a little to wide and angled weird and it was a bit patchy with the first use but the second time I used it was fine.. Retails for $12.99!
