Review: Sigma E-45 Small Tapered Blending Brush

Sigma's E45 small tapered blending brush is of course for blending. What makes this brush a little different from alot of other tapered blending brushes is it's pointy tip, making crease-work easier. It's pointy little tip allows you to get into those little spots with more precision. It's fluffiness still allows you to blend effortlessly.

How-to use: Pick up color with just the tip and apply to crease to add depth and dimension to your eyes. The first thing I noted about this brush was how soft it was. I like that it's fluffy put still precise. 

Most likely, you've heard that the Sigma E45 is a dupe for MAC's 226 brush. The two things that make this brush better are of course the price but also the tips are different. As a makeup artist, I want the best quality for the lowest price for my pro kit. The Sigma E45 also has a pointy tip whereas the MAC 226 is a bit rounded at the tip. I'd prefer the Sigma E45 for a tapered blending brush on myself because of my small eyes. 

Do you use a tapered blending brush? If so, which one do you like to use?

Review: Perlier Volcanic Thermal Renewing Body Scrub

Hey beauties! Every since I started Esthetics school, the word spa has a whole new meaning to me. I learn in a spa setting and use spa products all day, scrubs included. Perlier, HSN and iFabbo teamed up to send me this lovely little product.

Scrubs are designed to exfoliate and hydrate your skin while also increasing circulation. You want it to remove the dead skin cells that clog your follicles without being too rough or irritating your skin. Because our face is a lot softer and sensitive than the rest of our body, body scrubs will be a little bit rougher than facial scrubs.

"Much more than just a scrub, it is a true beauty treatment for the body. Various-sized natural minerals deeply stimulate skin regeneration while smoothing out the outer skin. With the energy of volcanic stones, it revives the vital functions of the skin and makes it firm, velvety, more receptive to the following treatments with results comparable to a spa. Massage on moist skin and rinse with fresh water."

Fresh Scent
Not harsh like other body scrubs
Plenty of product for use
Contains natural minerals 
Jelly-like texture 
Had different sized particles for multiple benefits

Larger particles might be too rough and dissolve slowly
Nothing thermal or warm about the scrub

I expected a strong and overwhelming smell, mainly because the packaging and color reminds me of icy hot hehe; but the scent was light and refreshing. I enjoyed this scrub, it left my skin feeling a bit smoother and refreshed. I think it'd be nice for an at-home spa evening.

My Rating: 7/10

The Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub is 6.7 fl oz (200mL), made in Italy, and can be found on HSN for $25. Use the code iFabbo5 to receive $5 off your purchase.

Do you have a favorite body scrub?
