  1. happy new year! :)

    i've heard such good things about the real techniques brushes! i'll have to keep an eye out the next time i'm in the U.S. i've been wanting to do a 2012 favourites video or blog post but i can't seem to pick my favourites. i get beauty tunnel vision sometimes and i can only remember the products i'm currently using. i'll have to think about it some more.

    1. yes, you must try out the real techniques brushes! they're crazy good quality for their price point. i got mine from fred meyer. if you have ulta close by, i would recommend going there and using their daily $3.50 off any purchase coupon (you can print it off their homepage).

      please do a favourite segment - i would love to see which are your favs of the past year! maybe it would help to sift through your monthly fav videos/posts? it could refresh your memory
