It has a brush end where you click the end to get more product. I've used this a couple days now and I can tell a difference the next day.

MY MIX FOUNDATION- Medium 02
I LOVE this foundation. This has now been added to my everyday makeup routine. The coverage is medium and looks great on. It does not dry matte but leave a little natural dewy look. I'm usually not a fan but I actually like it because it looks more like a glow than

These hair feathers from Picasso are so cute and easy! Why go to the salon and pay lots of money for a "professional" to put a hair feather in when you can do it yourself.. over and over again? ALSO these are cruelty free! I am not very brave when it comes to hair color so I am finding new ways to add color to my hair that are not permanent. This is a great way to add some fun colors!

I noticed that my nail polish collection consists of different shades of pink and red. I am expanding my nail polish colors... which is what led to this purchase (also with some help from some Tampa beauty bloggers).
China Glaze Blue Sparrow (neon) is a very pretty color! It goes on pretty thin.

So I received my kit last week but wasn't very excited about it this month, hence the late post. These subscriptions always have good and okay months, this month was my BA's okay month. The only makeup related choice was the Cover FX Eye Primer :( I'm not upset since I still love the company because of the great customer service and the sample sizes are amazing.
