I bought some brushes today...

I bought these brushes in a store that sells art supplies. They're not intented to be used as makeup brushes, but I have a feeling they'll work just as well with makeup as with paint. I put an eyebrow pencil next to the brushes in the first picture so that you can see how tiny some of them are in comparison! I can't wait to try these...

Tick:Tock Cosmetics - Made in the 80s

Tick:Tock Cosmetics will soon be launching this gorgeous lip gloss called Made in the 80s. As one of their models, I got to try it out before its official release, and let me tell you - it's AMAZING! 

The color is described as "a super bright, in your face purple with aqua sparkles". On me, it leans pink, but on Elizabeth (one of the owners of Tick:Tock) it's definitely a purple. I guess it depends on your skin tone. The color really is very intense, even more so in real life than in pictures, but I still find it wearable. I wore it with a gray smokey eye today, but I think it'd look even better with just mascara and black, winged liner. 

Even though it's not available for purchase yet, you can check it out here: Made in the 80s by Tick:Tock Cosmetics.

You can really see the aqua sparkles...
