Facial/Microdermabrasion Brushes Comparison Chart

I hope this chart helps you all. I have individually reviewed most of them. The links are in the chart.  The important thing to notice is the mechanism. Clarisonic became famous due to the results people were achieving, as a result of its mechanism, oscillation. Clarisonic is the HG. However, it is very pricey. NutraSonic is an excellent alternative. That’s the one I have and it is wonderful. I couldn’t be happier. It actually cleans better than the Clarisonic Mia, because it’s a 2 speed, not a one speed.

Applying Mineral Makeup Wet aka Foiled

Image
Hello everyone,

I was looking online and came across this YouTube Video by Kitcat 627 . She applies her Everyday Minerals Foundation foiled or wet, using a mixing medium as per Enkore (watch here). Basically its 1 part Glycerin to 3 parts purified water.

She states that by applying your EDM Foiled, it gives you better coverage, while using less makeup than you would if you applied it dry.

Maybe I was doing it wrong or something but I didnt get the results i was expecting with it.

I noticed that my makeup came off faster than when I apply it drythe color was darker on my face, even when its dry, its a perfect match (this should NOT happen)Because of those two main points, i dont apply it foiled or wet anymore. I just apply it dry.
Anyone have any comments? Why didnt the color match? Thank you! 
PS: I will be posting lists of beauty products in order very soon. I have a BUNCH of those lists. Stay tuned :)

Facial Brushes aka Clarisonic, Nutra Sonic, etc

Hey everyone,


I have been getting a lot of comments on my blog posts on the various facial brushes I reviewed (Clarisonic, Pretika, Oil of Olay, Sigma Cleansing & Polishing Tool and Nutra Sonic) and they are actually my post popular posts, as well.


To make it easier for everyone, I am in the process of making a chart that will compare all of them side by side. Things that will be included, that I think are important in comparing the various types of facial brushes as well as potentially investing in one are price and mechanism (rotate, oscillation).


Stay Tuned.

It should be up within a few days.

Hello Everyone,

You dont need to be a makeup artist to get the flawless look,which was deemed "easy by the other brand (yea right!).

You do not need to buy only THEIR brand of products for it to work right.

It will not make you broke!

Perfect Shade:
The perfect match for NC25 skintone is Light Olive.

Detailed Description:
Warm Undertones are for those with a yellow or peachy complexion. Your skin tans well and usually does not burn. If you look at the underside of your arm, your veins may have a slight greenish tint if you can even see them at all (from EDM Website).


Light: Light is very light. Its about NC15 maybe NC20. On the website it says light is, "For light to medium complexions with golden undertones." Definitely not medium skintones. Its for Fair to …
