Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Pointed Crease Brush - Review

 Product mentioned was provided by Klout. All opinions are honest and my own.

Today I have a review of one of the new Bold Metal Collection brushes from Real Techniques. I have seen these previously at an Ulta, and I immediately thought they were gorgeous but also pricey. These are more luxe brushes than vs. the regular Real Techniques brush line. Find out my thoughts on the 201 Pointed Crease Brush below!

Event Recap: Natural Products Expo West 2015

A couple of weeks ago I was able to attend the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA. This is always a great event with so many familiar and new exciting companies that show their products. I took a look mostly at the beauty section to see what was new. I also ended up looking at a few food companies that have some great products. Take a look at more photos below!

Beauty 360 Lip Balms - Honey and Blueberry

Today I have a look at a few new lip balms from Beauty 360 that you can find at CVS. There are different ones from honey to blueberry to pomegranate and more. These lip balms are cheap in price, but the quality is there. I found them to be moisturizing and the scents were great and not strong. See more photos below!
