beautyblender blendercleanser Solid Review & Pictures

BeautyBlender BlenderCleanser Solid Review & PicturesYou may remember me writing in a previous review that I wasn’t able to get all the makeup out of the beautyblender makeup sponge when using the liquid beautyblender blendercleanser.

After I used up my little bottle of the liquid cleanser, it was good timing because I saw that Sephora started selling the beautyblender blendercleanser Solid.

beautyblender Review & Pictures (Plus blendercleanser Review & Pictures!)

Beauty Blender Review Beauty Blender Cleanser ReviewLast year when I attended IMATS, I found a good deal on a beautyblender set that included both the beautyblender and the blendercleanser for $30 CAD flat (no tax).

Normally, the beautyblender alone costs $26 CAD plus tax, so I gave into the temptation and bought it. (This was waaay before I heard about inexpensive dupes of this makeup sponge.)

Lots of makeup artists and beauty enthusiasts recommend the beautyblender, and it has won Allure’s Best of Beauty Award around 5 times!

Smorgasbord Sundays & Haul of Shame: My IMATS Toronto 2012 Haul

IMATS Toronto Haul 2012Yesterday, I went to IMATS Toronto 2012 (the Internation Makeup Artist Trade Show).

Ever since IMATS was held in Canada, I’ve been going because it’s a great place to find good beauty deals, and you can attend seminars to learn new tips and tricks from successful makeup artists.

Okay, I’m not a makeup artist, but you can still pick up interesting tidbits that apply to the average woman. 🙂 (Well, I don’t think the average woman is average. The ‘average woman’ is incredible, smart, and beautiful. We are going to take over the world!)

At last year’s IMATS, you’ll remember that I was extremely frugal. Looks like I overcompensated this year! 😉 (You can click here to see my highly detailed blog post from last year. I basically walked you through the whole event and took photos of almost everything!)

Come take a closer look at the stuff I got yesterday, and check out some of the photos I took.
