Question of the Week: – What product(s) do you use to clean your makeup brushes?

Answer:- Whatever’s nearest!  I usually blindly search the bathroom for something suitable.  Bleach isn’t suitable, FYI.  Mostly hand-wash, I’ve gotten away with it so far.

Prime Beauty – reviews the June GlossyBox and has one to giveaway too!

Phyrra – Phyrra feels a sin comin’ on. Oh wait! That’s just Sinful for Her by Tru Fragrance.

Vampy Varnish – Get your potty-mouth on with this new nail lacquer from Sheswai and it’s cruelty free!

we heart this – it may not be beauty, but we bet you feel beautiful (and clever) sporting this clutch purse that you made yourself. Oh, yes you did!

Beauty Junkies Unite – Amber shares 7 hot picks from the brand new Maybelline nail lacquer collection, Color Show!

Clumps of Mascara – already has a Clarisonic but she’s in looooove with these. How gorgeous and summery are these shades?

EauMG – Check one of Victoria’s favorite perfumes for the heat, L’Artisan Parfumeur Batucada.

Gouldylox Reviews – This BB Cream does a great job of staying in place all day, but has one other major drawback.

Lipglossiping – nags more of her readers to share their favourite red lipsticks in her regular Red Lipped Readers series.

Nouveau Cheap – A collection of jumbo eyeshadow pencils from the drugstore in rich, vibrant colors that don’t crease, smudge or smear even after eight hours? Oh yes, it’s true.

Pink Sith – managed to spend less than $20 on a full face of makeup? Check out the 79 cent blush/bronzer she picked up from Sally Girl Cosmetics.

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Prime Beauty – I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet, gentle and discriminating blogger in person! Check out The Ultimate Makeup for info on makeup, fashion and all things pretty! [br]

    I use MAC brush cleanser or TCP – usually a mixture of both! Nasty bugs on my face? Bluergh!! Xx

    I tend to have a cheapo wetwipe beside me when I’m doing my makeup, and spot clean brushes as soon as I’ve used it – then once every few weeks or so I use tesco value baby shampoo. Works for me x

    Baby shampoo – cheap, cheerful and if it’s good enough for itty bitty baby hair I’m happy to use it on my brushes!

  4. When I’m in a hurry I use homemade brush cleanser for spot cleaning, but when I have a lot of time (or a serious lack of clean brushes) I wash them with baby shampoo.
