Swissco Precision Beauty Bamboo Stipple + Sponge Brush

 
Maybe you have already spotted these fantastic cruelty free, synthetic bristle cosmetic brushes at your local drugstore but if you haven't then you should check them out. The Swissco brand, a manufacturer of dupe beauty blender sponges as well as other beauty tool accessories, has a line of fabulous bamboo handle brushes made out of Taklon bristles from their Precision Beauty Collection. They are super affordable, work well and are really gorgeous for displaying on your vanity. I was lucky enough to purchase these for only $7 each! Since the brand was new to me I only bought three brushes: two stippling brushes and one sponge applicator. I'm kicking myself for not buying the set because they're perfect. Next time theses babies go on sale I'll be buying the rest of the collection.

Brushes are made with 100% soft synthetic Taklon. Made with Sustainable BambooSoft Synthetic Bristles for an Airbrushed Finish, Eco-friendly, Hypoallergenic, Cruelty Free.

 My Opinion: The bamboo brush handles are well constructed, thick and long handled. Both the stipple and sponge applicator are about nine inches in length. The stippling brush is absolutely amazing for creating an airbrush foundation finish. The hairs are soft and whisk away extra product that might have settled into fine lines. The sponge applicator is unique and I knew I had to have it when I saw it. The sponge tip is huge, maybe over an inch and is great for applying gel blush or other cream products. Usually sponge applicators like this are flimsy and have really short handles, this one is practical as well as gorgeous. They also handle well after washing without no bristle fallout. I've had these for months now and they still look new. A superb bargain for under ten dollars each. I highly recommended you buy a couple. As a matter of fact at the retail price they're selling for, go ahead and buy the entire set. They're worth it! Who loves cruelty free brushes? Stay Beautiful! XOXO

 *collection was sent to me for my consideration, my review is honest and my own opinion*
The fall season is here and before you get ready to snuggle up with your favorite warm knits, you'll need a few intimate pieces to help you accessorize your look. Kushyfoot has released their new Fall 2014 New York Chic Legwear Collection. Right on time and always on trend, the pieces for this upcoming season are stylish, affordable and as always created with Kushyfoot's signature feet and leg massaging comfort construction. These tights, socks and ballet shoes to go are must have accessories for the well dressed city girl. You'll look fabulous, feel great and have lot's of money left over to buy yourself that new dream handbag. Every time I review a Kushyfoot product I'm always satisfied with the comfortable feel as well as the impeccable quality. And this new collection is the perfect compliment for my fall wardrobe. As for the new Flats To Go they are Uber glam! I have tested several pairs in the past and I'm glad to see the style and look is modernly sophisticated. The pair pictured above is a gorgeous patent black shade and the new updated storage bag is absolutely adorable. Do yourself a favor, skip the high-end department store brands because for the same price of a designer pair you'll be able to purchase the entire Kushyfoot line without sacrificing quality or your fashionista sensibilities! Who's ready to rock the city life? Stay Beautiful! XOXO

KUSHYFOOT 'S  FALL 2014 COLLECTION FEATURES THE MOST NEW YORK CHIC LEGWEAR FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON ALONG WITH ITS EXCLUSIVE MASSAGING, REFLEXOLOGY INSPIRED SOLE THAT ENHANCES THE WEARING EXPERIENCE, KEEPING FEET BEAUTIFUL YEAR-ROUND “We’re always designing unique products to assure that Kushyfoot comfort is available for every shoe, leg wear and fashion need,” says Mitch Brown, the company’s President, discussing Kushyfoot line-up for Fall-Winter 2014-2015.“We think our fans and new enthusiasts of the brand will agree we’ve come up with innovative styles that are very much on trend. Smart legwear options, with all the benefits of Kushyfoot technology, are debuting and will be available along with our bestselling classics."  Kushyfoot is recognized for its chic, well-made, yet affordable tights that are a wardrobe essential for millions of women. With skirts and dresses gaining fashion momentum, variations of boots are worn most of the year, making tights are a top fashion accessory. For just $6.99 $7.49, Kushyfoot continues to present options that are as durable and comfortable as they are chic. Now all beautifully presented in a new contemporary package design. 
 The Opaque (12200),  Rib (12201), Chevron motif (12202) and Diamond pattern (12203) comprise Kushyfoot's impressive grouping. There is a color and style in our range for every outfit and every woman,” says Brown. "Our quality is made to last and even our Fishnet tight (12204) is solution-based, eliminating the “Curse of the Fishnet” by incorporating the incomparable comfort of Kushyfoot’s reflexology-inspired sole in place of the old open-mesh foot. In black, it adds a chic edge to every outfit."  
 
The Fishnet trouser sock (3498) available in a 2 pair pack that includes a classic trouser sock for a retail of $7.99. This combo pack is great to have on hand to wear with pants. A little fishnet peaking enables a conservative customer to be a little daring.  Rib (3499) trouser styles are also sold in a 2 pack combined with a classic trouser sock that provides the variety that women enjoy  for accessorizing. Newly designed combo packs for an updated rib and chevron pattern are 3673 and 3672 respectively, priced as others.
 
Shaping tights (12205) have the added benefit  of figure and leg enhancement. There are women that choose to wear this option on a regular basis so that they always project a streamlined figure and self-confidence. Other wearers may choose the product for special occasion, but either way, this new tight is a wardrobe essential, retailing for $9.99 and available in equally as indispensable, black. Worth noting is that this particular Kushyfoot product  has been certified as LYCRA® beauty fabrics, a certification program for shaping products that assures their comfort and performance features.  Fleece lined tights (12206) and Fleece lined trouser socks (3649) add the soft, rich comfort for which fleece is known without the bulk, retailing for $8.99 and $5.99 respectively. Each is super supple and certain to produce a relaxed and contented feeling for the wearer from the moment they step into these leg wear gems.  The fleece styles are particularly popular when temperatures dip.

The Flats to Go grouping is truly a signature Kushyfoot category.  Savvy women carry around this product in its mini-purse pack everywhere they go! Lightweight and ultra-portable, it’s the perfect solution to achy feet. Ideally used indoors and on smooth surfaces, women are even stashing an extra pair in their cars, suitcases (perfect for airport security and avoiding bare feet in yucky places!) and desk drawers at the office.  Ballet flats continue in a range of stylish and classic colors, textures and patterns (patent, metallic, snake skin print, alligator embossed and fleecy leopard--the softest, trendiest of all). Sandal and open toe versions sell year-round for resort getaways and warm weathered regional demand. They’re even perfect for getting a pedicure!  All styles have the same super-comfortable 3-dimensional massaging sole for relief from high heels and are sized 5/6, 7/8 and 9/10 at a suggested retail of $9.99. Available in over 10,000 doors around the nation and online, and in more than 40 styles, Kushyfoot delivers unheard-of comfort and high-end quality at affordable price points. Flats-to-go, tights, trouser socks, anklets/crews, foot and toe covers, shoe cushions, sport socks (including pedicure and yoga socks) and home/dorm socks comprise the collection.  Kushyfoot also offers men's socks and liners.
