I have the no!no! but I could never get myself to commit to it! There are a lot of specialized makeup brushes I rarely reach for – I tend to just use a core set of brushes. I don’t regret it, but I wouldn’t recommend “collect ’em all” mentality with MAC brushes — better to buy multiples of ones you use all the time!

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #091

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul:  Osmotics Cream Extreme x2!  It’s something I fall back on when my skin is SUPER dry and nothing else is working.  It’s pricey, but with Osmotics’ 20% off sale, I had to grab two.
  • Weekend plans:  I’ll be at Cosmoprof in Vegas covering the event!
  • Go-to summer foundation:   Kiehl’s Tinted Moisturizer

This week’s Mellan photo…


THIS is all Mellan wants to do! He’s happy as long as I keep throwing that frisbee.

I haven’t checked a bag in five years or longer (I also have not gone on any trip in excess of a week), so I pack everything in my carry on, which ensures less handling (and better handling when there is) and that nobody is going to steal anything. I cushion makeup bags or palettes between sweaters and pants–anything thick and soft–or else keep it in my shoulder bag.
