I can no longer deny it! I knew from the moment Urban Decay announced the launch of new Vice Lipsticks & Glide On Lip Pencils that they were going to be my downfall. I mean who can resist to 100 shades of Vice Lipstick?! It’s well known that I’m not a huge fan of lipsticks and lip glosses are usually my favorite lip products but let’s face it…I’m talking about six different finishes and colors that start from nudes and soft pinks, continuing with the classic shades of reds and burgundy, and finishing with edgy plum, violet, blue and even black. It’s really impossible to say you can’t find a favorite.

It’s been a while since I talked to you about my new MustaeV products but that was because I was testing a couple of new items. Since my MustaeV Single Eyeshadow collection has gotten bigger and bigger I felt the need of having all the shades together in a makeup palette so I was sent the new MustaeV 24 Eyeshadow Palette. As you know I’m a fan of MustaeV makeup brushes (info, photos) but I’ve always liked to keep it simple and whenever I was on the go most of my makeup brushes didn’t fit in my kit so I always preferred those short handle brushes which are travel friendly and easier to handle so I look towards MustaeV Easy Go Portable Brushes.

For the past few weeks I’ve been applying blushes with MustaeV V31 Blush Brush which has rapidly became my favorite tool. If you are not already familiar with MustaeV I will let you know that’s a famous Korean brand delivering high quality makeup products and makeup tools used by famous Korean make-up artists like Kowonhye and not only. The brand has become available in the US this year and many of those who tried its products consider that MustaeV is a worthy adversary of MAC Cosmetics and whisper of MustaeV makeup products having a better quality.

To achieve a perfect makeup look you need to have the right beauty tools and that’s why Rouge Bunny Rouge brings a new collection of brushes for 2010. Master of Beauty Tools are already available @Rouge Bunny Rouge website.
The kaleidoscope of colors offered within the RBR collection gives you free rein to create whatever looks wherever your imagination takes you: whether naked beauty or sophisticated screen siren; groomed to perfection or carefree bohemian.
Your perfect look can be created with the help of our range of brushes, each created to make application as quick and simple as possible. Every brush is a tool designed for specific product; the fibers and brush shape will help you gain a professional result with confidence. Like a real artist, your make-up will be perfect with just a few brush strokes.
Now you can experiment with products that you were scared to use before because they seemed too hard to apply. Listen to your feelings and create the look that you are dreaming of. Draw like you’re using watercolours or gouache, using broad strokes or deft touches. The tender touch of the brushes will evoke wonderful feelings and reveries and make application a truly pleasurable experience.
How to clean RBR brushes
Brushes absorb sebum and products residue, so after some time, the fibres start to stick together. RBR visagists recommend that you wash our real-hair-brushes with shampoo regularly, but now with soap. This way they will remain soft and thick. Use a paper napkin to remove the excess water. To dry brushes, place them in a horizontal position on a dry surface.
After the jump you can read a detailed description of each of the fourteen (14) brushes included in this collection as well as close-up photos. Continue Reading
