0a6cc76d-e78f-4458-bf01-d1b01cda0ef0Hello my little sprinkles!

First off, I am a flake, I am sorry. Classes and mommy life have been hectic and we have been back and forth out of town!

So today I wanted to share my EcoTools Voxbox with you guys. If you haven’t heard of EcoTools, they have some really amazing make up brushes as well as tons of other products.fc87a847-6309-4ab0-b370-da86edc5a0c2

For starters, EcoTools is a cruelty free brand and uses recycled materials to make them. On top of that their packaging is 100% tree free. They use no trees in their packaging. So great products with a guilt free conscience. Sounds like a winner, right?

So about a year back, I bought a few EcoTools brushes and I always loved them so I was excited to be getting some more! These are some of the softest brushes I have ever had and I love how they feel on my skin. The shadow blending brush and the powder brush are my all time favourites.

I also received the “Perfect Blending Duo”. Until I received these I honestly didn’t even know they sold sponges. These are great for blending. However, I love them because of their wedges and I think they’re perfect for contour and baking. You get such precise and sharp lines.

Another product in this voxbox was cleansing cloths! This is the first time IĀ  have seen cleansing cloths for your brushes. To be completely honest, I am not completely sold on them. They make for a good brush cleaning while traveling but I just do not think it thoroughly cleanses, if you know what I mean. Still a great product to have regardless.

Overall, I really love the products that were sent to me. Some I will definitely use more than others, but that’s how it always goes, amirite?

Honestly, if you want some good quality brushes and you’re all about the environment, these are worth checking out and you won’t regret it.

Has anyone tried EcoTools? Any favourites?

sorry you guys

I have been absolutely been so slack. I’ve had no motivation, I feel like some of you can relate. Happens every now and then, but I will have something up for you guys by the weekend, so you can fuss at me until then :p

Help!

So I have removed my husband from update notifs for the blog so I can ask for your help!

For Valentines, I am asking people from ALL AROUND THE WORLD to help write these notes so I can share them all with him for Valentines!

Something along the lines of “Kenyatta, Shawna’s love for you is so big it has reached _(where you love)_”

If you can do this for me please message me on twitter or instagram at @shawnadawnx

Here are some I have so far:

sunday funday + becca

ytw.jpgIt’s Sunday fun day! Except not really, because I have been sick all week long and all weekend, D: More like Sunday take-medicine-every-four-to-six-hours-day. Has a ring to it, I think. Head colds are the worst.

On a different sick note, does anyone else like the feeling of sneezing, or is that just me? Anyway..

First off, congrats to Ashley Bonniville, who was our Smile Brilliant winner! Thank you to everyone else who participated, it was a great turn out!

Today’s post will just be a quick little something, just so I don’t leave you guys hanging. I do have tons of stuff I bought over the holidays that I can’t wait to share with you.

So, I have heard so much hype for the Becca highlighters, so I thought it was time I tried it out. I will admit I was a little iffy because of the price for one single highlighter, but I think it was actually worth the money. Will I buy another single Becca highlighter for the same beccaamount? Probably not. But that doesn’t negate the quality, I just don’t think I need anymore highlighters anytime soon, lol.

I really like the packaging. It is cute but simple and not too crazy. I think that between the packaging and the quality of the product that the price is okay.

I decided to pick up the ‘Pearl’ highlighter. The product itself is really nice. It is super smooth and pigmented. I really like the shine and it can be nice and natural or you can build up without it looking cakey like a lot of highlighters do when built up.

handI will admit, while I really enjoy it a lot, I don’t see the hype. I mean I see the hype, but just not over other highlighters, you know what I mean? It’s nice but it doesn’t seem any better than some of the highlighters I already own. Which sucks, because I feel like I should be praising it with the attention from it, but I don’t have the need. However, I am not bashing it either because there are definitely worse highlighters out there. With that said, if you are willing to spend the money, then I think you should own at least one Becca highlighter.

What did you guys think about the Becca highlighters? Worth the hype or too hyped up?
