Beauty Blender, Foundation Brush & Stippling Brush Comparison

Ever wonder which applicator you should use when applying your foundation?
Or if the Beauty Blender ($19.95) lives up to all the hype?
Yeah, me too.
which foundation applicator works best
So I did a comparison with 3 different applicators to see what, if any, difference there was.

Dove Clinical Deodorant vs. Secret Clinical Deodorant

Here in the Deep South, things are already heating up.
And I sweat like a man.
Yes, yuck.
In the warm months, I switch over to "clinical strength" deodorants.
I compared Secret Clinical and Suave Clinical a while back. You can check that out HERE.
This time around, I wanted to see what the difference might be between Dove Clinical and Secret Clinical.

April 2014 Ipsy Glambag Unboxing!

I got that pretty pink package yesterday!
I created a little video to show you what all came in my April Ipsy Glambag collection.
I swatched things, smelled things, tried things, commented on things...
You get the idea.
If you aren't a subscriber to my YouTube channel, I encourage you to become one. I don't typically link my unboxing videos to my blog, so you being subscribed will keep you from missing out on seeing what Birchbox, Ipsy & Glossybox are sending out.
Also, if you're interested in subscribing to Ipsy Glambag, you'll notice I have a very handy link to the right of my blog. I'll get credit for referring you, so I really appreciate it!
Do you like watching unboxings? I was surprised by how many people love them. I guess we sometimes live vicariously through others? Or maybe we're just curious to see what we might get if we decide to subscribe?

So, here's my recipe for Low Carb Chicken Nuggets.
And I hope that you and yours will like them as much as me and mine do!
