Hi! Beauties! Today I want to share  and compare with you a great makeup brush and sponge cleanser that I have found at my local Michaels store to the Blendercleanser Solid cleanser that can be found at Sephora and online. I learned about the cleaner I purchased from my local Michaels store while watching an You Tube Video. I wish I could remember who it was so I could share their link with you and  to give them the credit for this find. The cleanser is called The Masters Brush Cleaner and Preserver and it is found in the art supply department. I found you can get this cleanser at Michaels for the full price of $10, but Michaels always has a 50% off coupon floating around that is good for use on any full priced item and it is what I used to get mine for $5.00. This cleanser comes in 2.5 ounces which is over double the amount of the Blendercleanser Solid  cleanser which only comes in a 1 oz. size and is priced at $16 at Sephora, Ulta etc. As you can tell by my pictures above The Masters Brush Cleaner and Preserver does an awesome job. I have cleaned all my makeup brushes and both my Original Beauty Blender along with the above pictured Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge. My makeup brushes and sponges have never been so clean. My brushes did not shed, their shape held and they are as soft as they were when they were brand new.  I have always until now been an avid fan of just cleaning my make up brushes and sponges with baby shampoo since the other alternatives seemed so expensive. I will now continue to use and repurchase The Masters Brush Cleaner and Preserver because it is an awesome and affordable cleanser. Note: I used this cleaner on all my goat hair, synthetic and duo fiber brushes. I have brushes from ELF, Sigma, Merle Norman, MAC etc. and they all turned out beautifully!

Collective Haul: CVS and Wal-Mart

Collective Haul

Hello! Beauties! After being ill since day after Christmas I was finally able to venture out into the world again..Yay!!! I had to make a run to CVS to pick up my husband’s prescription, so this haul is all his fault…..Ha! Ha! I also wanted to do this article to let all of you know that CVS is having a huge clearance sale on most all make up brands, they have items 50-75% off. Of course while in town I had to go to Wal-Mart to pick up a few groceries and some tooth paste. Well to get to the tooth paste I had to go by the make up section. So, do I need to say more?…..Heee!Heee!
