;) ​safe & sound inside... doing some damage on eBay...lol
Lol the best way to spend a snow day! We’ve dodged a few bullets regarding snow this year...and last year the snow always fell on my work day. But I always have to go in because I work in a hospital.

I recently ordered Surratt brow gel from Beautylish (I've given up on soap brows), and they sent me a sample of R+Co Cactus shampoo. Goodness it is GOOD. You're apparently not supposed to use conditioner afterward. I put Olaplex treatment in my hair, let it sit for 2-3 hours, then washed my hair with Cactus shampoo. I followed up with my usual styling product (an Oribe mousse), and let my hair air dry per usual. Not to toot my own horn, but...toot toot. My hair looks really good today. My waves are more wavy and defined, and my hair is more voluminous. I was nervous that my hair would feel dry due to the nature of the product and the fact that I didn't use conditioner afterward, but my hair is very soft and touchable today. No crunch at all.
Ohhh. I think I got one of those in my last order as well! I have to try it out now lol.
*fist pumps*

What number is the middle brush?

I’m glad you made it! I can’t comprehend functioning in extreme cold. I’m a warm weather gal through and through.

Did any of you ladies who ordered the Beautylish Lucky Bag get theirs as yet? Mine got delivered yesterday and my sister sent me a pic. I had ordered the Regular Dark/Deep Bag and I received:

Viseart Golden Hour Palette - Retails for $49.00 (I'm glad I didn't order this when they went on sale during the Holidays since I would have two now.)
Stila Iridescent Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Set - Retails for $25.00 (I really like these so I'm happy to have them)
IT Cosmetics SuperHero Liner - Retails for $24.00 (While I would never have paid full price for this I'm happy to have this as I love liquid liner and am always on the hunt for the next best one. It's said to be waterproof too so that's a bonus)
Wayne Goss #20 Brush - Retails for $22.00 (I received this exact brush in my bag last year and I haven't even washed it yet much less used it. I would have preferred a Sonia G brush and see that some lucky persons got one in their bags)
CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops - Retails for $42.00 (It's only as I typed this that I realise this is one of the highlighting ones. I thought it was the Custom Cover drops that you use to adjust your foundation shade. I'm actually really happy about this now lol.)
Beautylish debuted a brand called Good Molecules in the bags this year, similar to what they did with those Hylamide products last year. I received the Super Peptide Serum which is stated as being formulated with tri-peptides to target fine lines, wrinkles and dullness. It's 1.0 fl oz so I'm definitely intrigued and interested in trying it out. No info on the retail price though.

Excluding the serum, the bag was worth $162.00 and I paid $75.00 plus $17.01 in tax and shipping. I would have preferred a Sonia G eye brush instead of the Wayne Goss and would have certainly preferred a Surratt blush. I saw a few in other regular bags and the recipients complained that they were too dark for them *sigh. Apart from perhaps the shade of the CoverFX drops, nothing in my bag suggests it was specifically chosen for a person of Dark/Deep complexion as I'm sure the products would work for any skin tone. This is my 4th bag and the second time I picked the Dark/Deep option. If I don't get an XL Bag for the 2020 round this will be my last bag even though I'm happy with the contents.
Thank you for sharing, I was correct in my decision not to get a lucky bag. I watched a lot of lucky bag videos, and I think I would have been disappointed.

lol...quoted section for my truth ;) ~ I love her eye set but know I would not use all of the brushes in her pro face set. I am going to save my pennies and order a couple of her original face brushes when they come back in stock.
Smart move! for me as a brush lover, I went for the set, as I would get use of all the brushes except the angle face brush, I'm not a fan of angle brushes with the exception of the MAC 168 brush.

Just got a Beautylish alert for Wayne Goss The Synthetics...I feel conflicted...silly, but I would never expect synthetics from him or SG... but then again he is trying to tap into that vegan, cruelty free market.
I decided to skip, as I already went ahead and got the Sonia g brush set, and I got the WG holiday brush which is similar to the Fan like brush...smart of him to come out with a cruelty free option though.

If you have these, please share how you are using the Sonia G Face Pro set when you are able. I goofed today and almost finished my face when I remembered the brushes. I used the angled brush for the Studio Fix powder foundation. I forgot I could have used it for the bronzer. I wonder if I should have used the Inochige?? for the powder foundation instead. I used the blush brush with the Nars holiday cheek palette since Sonia showed that with it. It worked but I think my Nars brush for the dual intensity blushes worked better. It took quite a bit of time to build up the color and I was in a rush. I probably could have used that detail brush for my concealer maybe. I will try again tomorrow. Oh I did use that blush brush for the highlighter in the cheek palette too and that worked fine since that texture is hard to pick up.

I get so set in my routine that it is hard to incorporate new brushes.

Right now I use Dermablend Flawless Creator to conceal a small area and I use the Wayne Goss #13 to apply it. I don't know if one of these brushes can work for that purpose. I use another Sonia G brush to apply the powder foundation. I look forward to playing around with these brushes.

I don't see how these could be used to pick up difficult products. I was skeptical of that concept from the start. I need angry, vicious brushes for hard-packed, troublesome products. What I wouldn't reach for is a bunny's behind and that's exactly what you're getting with these. I reach for these types of brushes when I have heavily pigmented products and I don't want to look like a lunatic.
But who knows? Perhaps I'll be scaring people all day tomorrow...looking like Humpty Hump.

Bosch you are HILARIOUS!! But I know exactly what you mean. Super soft brushes can also cause hard pan too which defeats the whole purpose with troublesome powder products *sigh*

Random, but not really, question. What are you ladies loving for cleaning makeup brushes? I use longwear foundation and its super stubborn to get out of my brushes. Which means I just keep buying new ones to avoid the mental task of getting the others cleaned lol. I won't tell you how many brushes are in my brush basket waiting to be cleaned *facepalm*

I use the Clean Apothecary Brush Shampoo from Beautylish, but I also don't use it to clean longwear foundation.
I know a lot of people swear by the beautyblender solid cleanser or Bronner's with olive oil or Dawn dish detergent.

I think I have the Clean one from last year's Lucky Bag but it's not very good for foundation. I've tried the beautyblender solid and the regular Dr. Bronner's but I've never tried the one with olive oil. I may just have to give good old Dawn a try haha.
