5 Things You Need to Know About Unicorn Brushes

Unicorn Brushes 1
Unicorn, holo, rainbow, iridescent. These are what beauty enthusiasts are obsessed with from the recent trend. I think the key word is unique. Anything that is not the ordinary sells like hot cake. Then came the obsession with anything unicorn. And the Unicorn Brushes were launch and people go nuts!

The original Unicorn Brushes are not cheap and it is based on pre-order. Is there even such thing as the “original”? I don’t know. It’s the first to launch, it has better aesthetic look to it such as iridescent handle, evenly-made unicorn rainbow bristles and a unicorn brush pouch. I didn’t jump onto the unicorn brush bandwagon the minute it was out. I learnt through all the years of being a beauty enthusiast that some things are best to wait. And I was right this time. Unicorn Brushes are sold at RM90 per set of 5 or 10 on average, depending on the seller. Thanks to some shopping vouchers I obtained from some event, I had to browse through an online shopping portal that I discovered Unicorn Brushes selling for just RM11 per set of 5 or add RM4 to upgrade to a set of 10. But of course all the 10 pieces were sold out and I had to settle with a 5-piece set. I bought two different 5-piece set as I had to maximize my shipping fee. I got them weeks later and I hated them. Then I browse through the site again only to discovered the same seller changed the price to RM11 for a set of 10 pieces. This time I was determined to get another set but in plain white bristles. I got them weeks later again as seller informed me that it was sold out. When I got them, I was so happy with it. The plain white bristles with pastel purple handles are way better looking than the colorful bristles. Here are 5 Things You Need to Know About Unicorn Brushes.

Breena Beauty Blending Pearl Changed My Perception on Using Beauty Sponge for Base Makeup

Breena Beauty Blending Pearl 1
I wasn’t supposed to have a post up today, but Breena Beauty’s last delivery is today and Breena Beauty Blending Pearl introduction price of RM30 is ending this 23rd June so I thought I better put this up before you girls kill me 😛

Breena Beauty, the brainchild of fellow beauty blogger friend Sabrina Tajudin need no introduction. Everybody know Breena Beauty and my friend over here 😀 . Her recent launch kinda got everyone of us excited as she launched a beauty sponge named Blending Pearl. Now, I have a friend at Kota Kinabalu Sabah who bought the Blending Pearl, tagged me in a post and one of her friend/follower on Instagram commented that this is a copy of beauty blender. I shot that comment down because this may be a beauty sponge, it is so much different than beauty blender. Yes the concept is the same but if you have used both you will know that they are both different in so many ways.

Dupe Alert: Miniso Cosmetic Bag With 3 Brushes Set and Comparison With Real Techniques Brushes

Miniso Cosmetic Bag With 3 Brushes Set
A few months ago, I read the news about Miniso and how they are Japanese brand but strangely they had only four stores in Japan while having more than a thousand stores in China. What exactly is Miniso, you asked? Miniso is a Japanese lifestyle and fast fashion brand that sells merchandise such as homeware, bags and electronics at low prices. You know, something like Daiso? Strangely the store’s logo resembles Uniqlo. They even had the dupe for some Uniqlo products. Hah!

Make Up - Beauty Tools MISSHA Review: Make Up

Missha Professional Oval Make Up-Brush: For a faster, poreless, smooth, streak-free application

Ever since MAC came out with Masterclass brushes, I want one. And when Artis Brush came out with similar brushes, I want the whole set! What set me back was the price. The hefty price tag that does not justify the purchase at all especially when USD conversation is off the chart now. When I saw one at Etude House a few months ago, I was overjoy. But RM100+ for a brush still does not make sense to me. Not when I have so many new brushes yet to be used at home.

Now, this Missha Professional Oval Make Up-Brush is unexpected. Every other bloggers told me they knew about this brush as they did some research on MISSHA before going over to the store opening. I of course just charge ahead to the store with no googling 😛 . I was among the first few to arrive early to the store and the brush shelf was facing the registration counter. After registering myself, they first thing I browse at was none other than makeup brushes. I scanned row by row from top to bottom and guess what I saw? A familiar looking “toothbrush” alike brush! And the price is so reasonable. Like RM55 reasonable! I bagged it of course.

I did not practise what I preach with this brush. I did not wash the brush prior before using lol. I was too excited to start using. Oh boy. I have not had such excitement with beauty products for so long. So I kind of forgive myself this time round 😛 . Don’t do what I did girls. ALWAYS wash your new makeup brushes, let them dry properly before using 😉

Breena Beauty Face Luxe Brush: Foundation routine done in just 1 minute and 16 seconds, or less!

I don’t know about you but I am very particular with my makeup brushes. I have several different type, size and shape brushes for one section of my face. That is because I go through phases with makeup brushes just like how I go through phases with makeup products. One day I may like flat foundation brush, the next week I’m feeling flat top kabuki, the following week duo fibre brush and so on. Lately I’m on a beauty shopping diet. That means I have to do “stash” shopping. I probably had own this Breena Beauty Face Luxe Brush (thank you Breena Beauty for sending this!) for a few months now and all along I’ve been using it only for finishing powder as I learnt that the brush is the best brush for powder and it give an airbrush finishing.

It all went well until last week. I was in a rush to do my makeup (what’s new) and this brush was calling out for my name. I reach out for it thinking it’s a huge brush so I can get my base makeup down in a few minutes. It’s a good thing I washed it the week before. All hell break loose because this brush is THE best brush for liquid foundation! Ignore every brush you had, your HG brush, your most reached brush as this Face Luxe Brush is about to change your life. It changed mine.

Breena Beauty Face Luxe Brush
First of all, this brush is actually the brainchild behind blogger Sabrina Tajudin. It is their first debut brush and they are currently coming out with more brushes so do lookout for it at Breena Beauty website, aight? The Face Luxe Brush is huge and heavy. It does give this luxe feel to it due to the (1) weight, (2) the rose gold ferrule, and (3) the white handle.
