Friday Favorites: Makeup Brushes

So.....It finally came time to replace my beloved makeup brushes that I had for some ten years.  I know, I know, that was a super long time, but they held up.  I had no idea where to even start.  There are so many new brands and technologies since I last bought any makeup brushes.  I researched online and in stores.  Honestly, I got so overwhelmed that I quit looking for a while.

Then, one day while holiday shopping (thank goodness that's over for a while) I saw a makeup brush on display at Ulta that said it was the best blush brush.  Since I was standing in a giant zig zag line, I couldn't wait for my part of the zig zag to reach the next curve to see this display.  When I finally reached that curve, what I discovered was a nice brush indeed, but there was something else to this brush.  This brush was special - it was special in the fact that if I bought the brush, a brush would also be donated to women who suffer from cancer so they too can feel pretty.  I thought to myself, "I don't care if the brush is just ok, I want a cancer patient to get a brush."  So in my Ulta bag it went.

To my surprise, this brush wasn't just ok, it is a great brush.  It has amazing application, synthetic hair, 100% cruelty free, and pro hygienic.  So, I got out my trusty computer and began to research some more.  Turns out this brush is by IT Cosmetics and they designed a line called Live Beauty Fully exclusively for Ulta.  For every Live Beauty Fully brush purchased from Ulta, they give a brush to the Look Good, Feel Good foundation who support women affected by cancer and cancer treatments...WOW!!!

It turns out that they have an entire line of brushes you can purchase.  So, I got back into my car and went back to Ulta and bought two more brushes.  I couldn't be more pleased with the results I get from application with these IT brushes.  The cherry on top is that these brushes come with a plastic lid that is perfect for traveling with them.  The fibers are protected while in your cosmetic and travel bags.  What an incredible cause and an absolute win-win for so many women.
