Joe Blasco, Three Custom Colors, Cinema Secrets, Fyrinnae, and more-What Everyone Should Try From Them

My blog will be a year old on June 28th!  It has survived a year! Wow!  I wondered how many people actually read what I write?  I also wondered how many people I have bored.  Yeah, I don't have all the latest brands I know.  (I mention this so many times too.)  Remember, I BUY most of my stuff which leaves me to budget.  I don't want to waste my money on cosmetics just because it looks pretty in the package (although I do get that itch to just splurge on something pretty once in a while) or because some celebrity got the stuff in their swag bag.  I buy because it has to suit my needs at the moment and gives me some experimental options like the following items I have listed.

Sanitizing and Washing Makeup Brushes

Sanitary brushes and clean brushes are very important for the regular makeup consumer and more important for the makeup artist.  Germs can easily be spread by using the same dirty brush on several clients, or what almost made me throw up in my mouth-using the mascara applicator straight from the container on several clients (models).  "Don't worry," she said, "I throw it away after three months."  EWWWWW!  (Disposable mascara wands are sold for a reason.)

I Have to mention this Awesome Make Up Artist-Jordan Liberty

What?  You haven't heard of Jordan Liberty?  A Makeup Artist extraordinaire?  A magician when it comes to cosmetic application and art.  Yes, there are and were famous artists like Francois Nars, Billy B, Way Bandy, and Kevyn Aucoin but there is also a very hot and handsome makeup artist Jordan Liberty who has been tweaking his craft for several years and bringing you very cool editorial looks which one could only drool and gaze at for hours.  (At least, I do!)  He has the flair of Francois and the passion of Kevyn but also has the style that is all his own.  Check his stuff out here.

Fresh & Easy-Retreat Mulberry & Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Hand and Nail Cream; Lemon Verbena & Sunflower Hydrating Body Oil

Fresh & Easy is a chain of grocery stores that packs ready made and brand name groceries in a no-nonsense setting.  You won't find fancy-shmancy decor in this place because it concentrates on getting you in and out with the best quality food at a reasonable and sometimes very low price. UK's Tesco is the brain behind this grocery chain and with the help of Whole Foods has expanded mostly in the US west coast.
