~Weekend haul:Ecotools foundation brush FAIL~

I mentioned that i was looking for a primer and i went to the mall to get myself one. I was debating whether to get the L'oreal make-up base or the VMV Monolacirin Gel...In the end, i chose the VMV one since i have been hearing good feedbacks about the brand so i might as well give it a shot (it says to be hypoallergenic ..hmm...) compare to the L'oreal one on which i have never even knew existed.


I will be making a review for this one as soon as i have it all tested out. I love that hair clip! I can easily make a french twist using that compare to the hair grips that i usually use. Opal treatment becaue i remember reading Mareng Jing's post about it so i might as well give it a try & a few necessities.

When i got home, i was surprised when 2 packages greeted me. I actually got confused & tried to hard to think if ever i bought anything online before i opened it...hehe..silly me..i knew that i should have opened it first, but i like the excitement. As soon as i opened the 1st one, it immediately made me happy!

It was from Miss Sophie of The Beautynomist. I won her giveaway a couple of weeks ago. I'm really happy that i won since i am really looking for a good hair care... I'll be doing a short post some time about the shampoos that i have tried & my experience about it.


I'm really looking forward to try this product...
Thanks, Miss Sophie!
^_^

As for the next package..I got an invitation for the Neutrogena Healthy Summer Event...

I really want to go but it's going to be held friday...so i'm not sure... I still have to ask for some details that might help me decide if i will go. Anyone of you who will be going?

But this invitation is the cutest & most creative that i have received so far...don't you think so?

Yesterday i attended my bf's cousin's wedding. It was a great one with the bride looking real pretty & happy. I had a great chat with "anonymouse" too (my pretty friend who keeps on leaving messages on my cbox ^_~) talking about girly things & all... In short, i had a great Saturday! But today, i'll just have to stay at home to keep on eye on my siblings.

Hope your weekend is great!
Jaa ne~!

ps:
Look at the sorry state of my Ecotools foundation brush..
-__-"


I use this to apply Benefit Dr Feelgood & this happened. Argh! I almost never used this ever since i made a blog post about it (which is like a year ago - i made a blog post april 24 last year). I only used this 7x at the most since i said that it never went back to its state as soon as i washed it. I use my stippling brush in applying liquid foundation & was thinking of actually trying this one but how can i?!

Ecotools foundation brush = epic failure in my book!
I'm more of pissed about this rather than sad...
(-____-")

I'm guessing that i only got a bad brush out of the bunch of brushes that Ecotools has..but it sure beats the heck out of me... Even though i only spent a couple of dollars on it but i feel like i've been cheated. I've been meaning to buy The Face Shop's foundation brush but i'm far from the mall where TFS is...

*sigh*

I have to stock up on my TFS favorites once i get the chance! TFS foundation brush has raccoon bristles & i would love to try it!

I'm not sure about The Body Shop's foundation brush since it is synthetic. I feel like if i use synthetic bristles it absorbs the product more than it distributes it..speaking on my experience with the Ecotools one.

Any recommendation on a good foundation brush?

When I apply blush/bronzer, I use the ecotools so from your experiment... I don't know what to tell you =T Maybe try essence brush or something, they have pretty good brushes for cheap (not sure about over there). Maybe Coastal Scents or Sigma? I don't recommend high end brushes for I think it's not worth it...... or maybe try going to an art/craft store and buy their brushes? hmmm, I wonder what's the difference between art brushes and makeup brushes... I used the art brushes for nails, which works perfectly great...

sorry about your Ecotools brush...

About the VMV Monolacirin Gel... hmmmm I did try that because, I think we have the same problem of having oily skin and acne is popping just like everywhere, and I hope my experience won't be the same as yours... I guess we're not compatible (the gel) *wink*...
