The other day I got an e-mail from a friend asking me where should she get blue or plum mascara. At first I thought she was crazy but as I did some research, I got totally and completely infatuated with a plum mascara and now I am looking to try one. It actually really brings oput the eyes, especially brown and hazel ones.

The one I found to have excellent reviews was BADgal mascara. It is definitely next on my list

Hair brushes

My latest obsession has been donating my hair to the Locks of Love. For that I need at least 10 inches of hair and so far I only have 9. So I have been looking into ways to speed up hair growth and one of the ways was scalp massage and using the right hair brush. Apparently regular plastic or nylon hair brushes do not contribute to the hair growth, moreover, they damage hair and scalp.

I did some research and found out that it’s best to use a brush with natural bristles for it does not damage the hair but massages the scalp. The best hair brush would consist 50% of boar bristles and 50% of nylon. 100% boar bristle hair brush could be too soft and not good for brushing hair.

I found the absolute best, the Rolls Royce of hair brushes – Mason Pearson and Frederick Fekkai brushes:

Each of which starts at $45 (smallest travel version) and goes up as high as $280! Brrrr, that’s just crazy. I mean I will get myself one, I know I will, but later, when I convinve myself a little more.

Meanwhile I found very affordable alternative by Revlon – Amber Wave 50-50 All Purpose
nylon-natural brush:

Interestingly, only Walgreens carry this particular brush and in most they are sold out. It took me a while to find a Walgreens that had two brushes left.

Will try and see, and if it works well, I will make an investment and get myself a Fekkai brush
