but I just got a knock on my door and I am so excited that I felt the need to share that I just got an amazing parcel!
About a week and a half ago, I caved into my online shopping addiction (that I have been managing fairly well recently by NOT activating my new credit card and only going online to shop when I have spare money).

There's a brush in there for pretty much everything!
They say to clean them with a mild shampoo or brush cleanser before you use them. I don't have a brush cleaner specific from Sigma or anything, but I do have my Napoleon Perdis brush cleaner and it works pretty well. I use it on all of my NP brushes.
I bought it from the chemist for $40 but I've used hardly any of it so far and I've had it for 6 months. You just need to spray a little bit on a tissue/paper towel and wipe or dab the brush back and forth until the product comes off.
The travel kit I just got came with plastic covers for the large brushes which help to keep the brush in shape. You'll notice if you wash a big puffy brush, it will often dry funny, so these should help prevent that. (Hopefully!)
I have wanted the Bare eyeshadow pallete for a while too and I thought, hey, why not kill two birds with one stone (so to speak, I have three budgies and they hate it when I use that saying!) and save on Delivery charges?!

This eyeshadow pallete is quite cool - there's a little magnetised claspy doo-dad so that when you shut the lid it shuts tight. It comes with a double ended brush which I think will be super handy. It's the E30 Pencil Brush on one side and the E25 Blending Brush on the other.
I love the adorable little names too (see caption)
I also got this little complimentary E25 Blending Brush - quite cute!
I'll probably get super excited when I get a better chance to actually test out my eyeshadows and brushes and I'll do another blog on how I liked them but I have high hopes!!
