I bought a bunch of brushes off AliExpress on January 30th and have been patiently waiting for them to be delivered for the past couple of months. Finally, the packages started trickling in mid-March and I received my final parcel last week. Here is the Real Techniques Bold Metals set:
And here are the “dupes” next to the real thing:
Overall? I’m REALLY impressed with what I received! 😀 Today I’ll review and compare the MAC Oval 6 brush dupe.
I’m going to start a new series of sorts – it won’t be every Tuesday but there are some beauty related topics that I think would be interesting as a more conversational post, rather than have me yammer on. 😛
Today I’d like to discuss the controversial topic of returning makeup / beauty products.
This isn’t anything official – I pulled these questions from several blogs and YouTube videos and chose the questions I like best!
1. Do you celebrate Easter?
Yes. Although the root of Easter is a religious holiday (and some would argue even more significant than Christmas), I feel it’s such a cultural / commercialized holiday, most people seem to “celebrate” Easter simply by stuffing themselves full of chocolate. 😛
Saje is a Canadian wellness brand that I’ve recently discovered – I reviewed their aromaBreeze nebulizer not long ago – they have some great gems at very reasonable prices. This product is available at their stores or online, at $12.95 for 100ml.
Something different today instead of a review – I haven’t done a Tag in ages. I saw this on The Makeup Case and had to do my own spin on it. 😉
What is your middle name?
Hoarder. Stash Hoarder Matters is my name, don’t wear it out! 😛
What was your favorite subject in school?
In high school I really loved Industrial Arts or erm it used to be called “Shop” class. I made a wooden bowl on the lathe, and a wooden piggy bank. It was an awesome class!
What is your favorite drink? Source.
I’ve answered this before elsewhere so I’ll name another one I like: Jack fruit shake. I get this from our local Vietnamese restaurant and it is so refreshing. It tastes kind of like Neapolitan ice cream but lighter.
What is your favorite song at the moment?
I’ve had “Follow You Follow Me” in my head for a few weeks ever since I saw the animated short “Lily & the Snowman” from Cineplex!
