Senna Cosmetics Moist Matte Dual Powder Foundation and Brushes ~ Reviews

I was recently sent some products from Senna Cosmetics to try out. I got to test out a foundation and a few brushes.

The Foundation I tried was the Moist Matte Dual Powder Foundation. I wanted to try this because I have very oily skin.

Unfortunately I can not find the photo of my powder on my computer at this moment, will try and update it with my photo later. :)

What I like about this foundation is that it can be used both dry and wet. You can use a damp sponge to apply it for a more fuller coverage, or you can use it dry with a powder brush for a lighter coverage.

I have used it both ways and it has held up very well through out the day. When I used it dry I had to touch up once during the day.

My skin looks very smooth and even and I have gotten several compliments on my skin while I have been wearing this, so that's great!

Please excuse my messy hair, this was after my sons baseball game :D

This look/photo was after my sons baseball game and I already had this on for a full 6 hours or so. I applied it wet first, then dry with a big powder brush to set it. I have a bit of a glow but I'm not overly shiny.

Although, I don't know how this will hold up in 106 degree weather here in California in Summertime, but so far it's great. I really like it and would definitely recommend it if your in the market for a new powder foundation.
The color I am wearing is Olive #2 which turned out to be a perfect match! :)

I also got to try three brushes. I got the Deluxe Powder brush, the Concealer brush, and Angle Fluff brush.

Deluxe Powder #610
This is a great brush. You can use it for powder, blush, and my favorite to contour. This brush is so soft and feels good on your skin. I love it! I have been using it everyday as my new contour brush. I love it with blush as well because it's not a huge over sized powder brush.

Concealer Brush #12
This is a synthetic brush and I have been using this everyday as well. It's a great concealer brush. It's big enough to cover larger areas but the rounded tip allows you to use it for smaller areas like around your nose and under your eyes. The only bad thing that I can find with this brush is that it's white. I don't like looking at this brush or any white brush dirty so I clean it daily. :)

Angle Fluff #505
Another great brush. This one is soft yet dense. I love it for the outer corner and crease. I also like to use it to apply a highlight to my inner corners or brow bone.

Aren't the color of the brushes so pretty! They are so well made and beautiful!

Overall I love all the products I tried. I have honestly never been let down by any Senna Cosmetics products that I have tried. I definitely recommend you try their products. If your going to IMATS L.A. they will be there, so stop by and check them out! They are so friendly and have great customer service as well.

I have several of there products on my list for IMATS!! Will you be going and checking them out at IMATS?

IMATS Royal & Langnickel Brushes

If your attending IMATS in New York or L.A. coming up, or any of the shows for that matter, I wanted to let you all know about these amazing brushes.

I had never heard of Royal & Langnickel brushes until IMATS. The first year I went to IMATS which was 2 years ago, I picked up a bunch of Crown brushes and was not impressed at all. Now I don't know if these are made by the same manufacturer as Royal & Langnickel, but I was not happy with the Crown brushes that I had purchased.

Last year I checked out a lot of other brush stands, one place was sold out of all the brushes I wanted, so I headed over to the Royal and Langnickel brush booth and was checking everything out and I was really impressed with how soft their brushes felt and they just felt like good quality brushes.

One of the reps. was so nice and gave me their full brush set. I have used that set everyday along with my Sigma and MAC brushes and they have been fabulous and have held up wonderfully.

The brush set came in a leather like brush roll with 20 brushes, and I believe the price was around $90, which is great when you divide that cost by 20 brushes.

I'm not gonna review each and every brush because I would be here forever but take my word that these are great brushes and definitely worth checking out at IMATS.

I don't like poorly made brushes and these are not. Royal & Langnickel have some amazing brushes. They will also have a bunch of other brush sets for sale, as well as individual brushes.

I plan on picking up some more at IMATS in June. If your going to IMATS stop by their booth and check them out! :)

Have you tried Royal & Langnikel brushes? What did you think of them? Do you plan on checking them out at IMATS?

Exciting News!!! :)

I just wanted to share some exciting news with everyone, if you follow me on twitter then you probably already know, but I am 7 1/2 weeks pregnant with my second baby! My due date is 11/11/11, which is pretty cool but who knows if it will happen on that day. :)

I have been away from my blog a bit because I have been consumed with baby fever! Ha ha!

We got the confirmation by my primary care doctor about a week ago and today I saw my ob/gyn.

My ob/gyn said everything looks great with the baby! We also heard the baby's heartbeat, which was amazing, and made me tear up of course, if your a mother then you know what I mean and how I feel. :)

We also recently bought a new car, a Chrysler Pacifica, which is great because it will now fit my growing family!

I now have to turn our extra bedroom, which has been our office into a nursery. If you know of any good baby blogs or websites please share them with me.

Well I don't plan on turning my blog into a baby blog, but I might post things about it occasionally, so I hope you all don't mind. :)

I have lots of reviews coming up and will get to them as soon as possible but please be patient as I also now have a lot of baby planning to do.
