Brush Cleaning w Rubbing Alcohol

So I saw a video a while back from Gossmakeup about cleaning brushes w rubbing alcohol. So I decided to give it a try. So far I am LOVING it- so easy and so clean.
I will note that the 70% did not work for me, but the 91% and 99% are amazing! I tend to find the 99% at my grocery store and the 91% is the highest I have found at places like CVS, Walgreens, etc.
NOTE- the 70% kills more bacteria and 91-99% removes more color- so interchange them.
Also this has not dried my brushes our or made them brittle- I still deep clean once month.
Have you tried this and what do you think?

Sephora Friends and Family Sale

So it is the time of year again for the Sephora Friends and Family Sale- 20% off anything you purchase. No restrictions. Usually you just have to be a VIB. This year the day before the sale began, which runs from Oct 20-Nov 2nd, it was announced that they would not be doing the sale. I decided not to freak out and wait until the day of to see what they actually did. No use it trying to figure it out until then. Plus Temptalia ( hadn't posted anything about it and Christine always seems to know before others.
So that being said I already had my order in my shopping bag in case the sale was on. I woke up in the morning and the sale was on. However they did change it this year. You have to go to the link below and enter your email address and they will send you a code to use for a 1 time purchase. It used to be you could use it as many times as you wanted between those dates. However you can get one code sent to up to 5 email addresses. Not sure yet how that works though so don't quote me- I just read that. So here it is the link for the discount code.
Also another bummer is once again they left Canada out of the discount. I don't understand why they do that.
Enjoy your shopping!

Review Chanel Precision Lumiere Foundation

So this is a much awaited review of the Chanel Precision Lumiere foundation. This is supposed to be replacing the Pro Lumiere. I do discuss the difference in my video, but I think they are very different in finish and slightly in coverage.
Some key items is that it does slightly oxidize, so be sure to buy a lighter color that what you think. Also application can be a bit tricky, so try some different ways to find what works best for you!
Have any of you tried it? Let me know your thoughts.

Tested Tarte ReCreate Primer

So I gave this primer a test run yesterday. I had received a sample with a Sephora order. I haven't really been using primer much lately because I feel I don't need it as much in Fall. My skin was feeling a bit dull so I figured I would give it a shot. This primer is silicone free which is super important to me, since ones with silicone seem to break me out.
I put it on let it set in and it felt really good so far. Then I applied liquid foundation over it and it applied very well. However the biggest issue was the wear time. It didn't help my foundation stay on, it didn't reduce pore size or oils. I don't really think it it is something I would purchase. It is a shame, because I really wanted to like it. Plus side- it didn't break me out. So I guess it is on to the next sample!
Have you tried this primer? If so what do you think about it?

Review Benefit They're Real Mascara

Hi again everyone-
So I saw a video about this a while back. I think it was MakeupbyTiffanyD and she had said how great it was. Well I am a sucker for a good mascara, even though I tend to prefer drugstore options since I don't usually get through a whole one before it expires. :-(
It can be purchased at Sephora or Ulta for $22
