Beauty: Pixi Cosmetics @ Target

As I’m sure most of us LOVE Target, we know that they carry all major cosmetic brands.  Although while shopping there the other day, I stumbled upon this new (to me) product called Pixi.  This line caught my eye due to two things, one, the price ($9-30) and two, the subtleness in the colors and pallets.  For the girls out there that like to wear make-up but like a more natural look, this line is something that you might want to try!  Affordable and diverse, Pixi is high on my new make-up list! Avail at Target stores.

E.L.F. has created a make-up remover brush that is AMAZING. I tried this the other day (my 15 yr old cousin had one) and it works wonders!  Have you every just wanted to try a new eye shadow or new style with your make-up and were stuck trying to smear it off if you didn’t like it? Well this brush will save you!  It was designed to fix small imperfections, but it also really gets the job done when you are cleansing your face at the end of the day!  It gets into the small creases and nooks, where other removers fail!  This inexpensive ($3) tool is worth picking up and adding to your collection!  Avail at | eyeslipsface.com
