As we are all aware, this time of year there are lots of palettes, sets and kits that come out for the holidays. Sephora has several brush sets that are quite pretty and have products/brushes that are actually usable. Sometimes you get a set that only one or two brushes you would actually use, but these are all brushes that I will make part of my application daily. I have always been a fingers only girl with nearly all my products and am finding that brushes do actually work quite well.
Sephora as a brand as actually come out with some great products at great price points. The cases come in several pretty colors and in my opinion you should check them out!!!!! These are synthetic but not harsh or cheap and surprisingly don't lose brush hair all over your face. So tell me ladies, have you tried any of the Sephora brand brushes? What do you think? Do tell!

Shade: Open Secret
I absolutely adore Lipstick Queen lipsticks, glosses and now the new gloss/blush cream hybrid. Cream blushes are such a great thing for older skin like mine and I wanted to try this because it is easy to use, no glitter involved and beautiful pigmentation. Poppy King who is the creator of Lipstick Queen states that these are easy to give a glow that can be used with bold or bright lip colors because they are so sheer. They are subtle and flattering and Open Secret is a "romantic pop pink" that almost looks coral to me even in the swatches. Because I have such a red undertone to my skin and have hot flashes and rosacea, I am cautious with blush. These are perfect for my needs and I don't feel like I look like a clown!
There are 4 colors and are said that they can be used on your lips as well. I haven't tried them on my lips because I have such a huge Lipstick Queen lippie addiction :). As a blush, they work magic. Have you tried the new Oxymoron Matte Glosses? Do tell! Sherry
