Makeup Report Card: London Look Palette

Hey everyone! Just doing a quick review on this palette I bought a while back :) I have a post on it if you guys haven't seen it already !
You can only get this brand at the London Drugs in Canada ^^  don't think I've seen this sold anywhere else ! the price was super good, they were clearing it out to bring in new palettes so the price was only FIVE DOLLARS!
Each row created its own look :) but really you can use the colors to create any look you like :) 

here are the swatches!

Make Up Report Card: NYX Crimson Amulet Palette

Instead of just calling them a review I want to call it kinda like a report card cause I grade how I like the products ^^ So I know I showed this palette earlier on but now with trying it out for a little longer I can do a more thorough review :)
These colors are really nice some on the have really big pieces of glitter in it which is a nice effect ^^ its not like super shimmery where it doesn't look good, it looks really nice actually :) Here the swatches on my arm.

Make Up Essentials: Brush Care (plus little DIY)

I know the title can be so deceiving, but today I won't necessarily talk about the brushes you should have and start with, but instead talk about brush care! I know we all have those wonderful makeup brushes we turn to everyday to help us get that flawless finish on our faces, but by the end of the week when you pick you brush again and think about it... There really is a whole load of germs on there :( So  today I'll just talk about some basic brush care!  Firstly make sure you store your brushes so that they aren't touching each other and a spread of germs won't be all up in the air. A really popular method to hold brushes lately is with sand, rice, little pebbles or etc in a glass jar with your brushes facing upward. Personally I love this method! 

This way all your brushes are separated from each other and won't spread germs around 
Secondly, I know its hard to full clean our brushes everyday but I recommend cleaning once a week and at most twice a week (but if you think about it twice a week gets pretty gross too) Some people can use brush cleaners at the store or I can teach you my DIY method ^^ (*clap clap* YAY! first DIY) 

For this DIY brush cleaner it is super easy all you need is some olive oil and baby shampoo

Makeup Goodies: NYX Crimson Amulet Palette and London Look Palette

Just a little haul I had :) I couldn't help but pick these up!
This palette was on sale at my London Drugs in Canada (in the states this would be relevant to a Ulta, Cvs or Walgreens) I guess they were clearing this one out because it was only $5.00 CAN the colors are very pigmented and I find some of the colors really suit my brown eyes :) The brand is called LondonLook.
