I just got around to testing out the Mica powders I ordered from Coastal Scents...and I love them! Mica is a natural mineral that can be opalescent, sparkling or matte. Mica powder is purified and crushed mica mineral that is available in a variety of different colors. These powders are then used to add color to a wide range of products like lipsticks, rouges, candles or even soaps! As a cosmetic, you can use mica powder as an eyeshadow, a lipstain or nail polish. I'm going to use them as eyeshadows and nail polishes. The plastic baggies are the sample size, I love the fact that I can purchase a sample before I make a decision to buy the full product! Did I mention the sample amount is 1 teaspoon and is only $1.00! I bought these small containers and each baggie filled up two! These colors are wonderful...can't wait to try them out. I will post a few pictures as soon as I wear them. If you get any of these, let me know what you think or send me some pics!

03/10/10- An inexpensive way to wash your makeup brushes is to rinse them under lukewarm water; in the palm of your hand add a nickel size amount of hand soap and olive oil. Use your brush to blend these two together and then rinse off under water. Hand soaps contain disinfectants and are gentle enough for your brush but also remove make up easily; the olive oil will moisturize the brush hair helping it maintain soft
