Akean Professional Electric Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer Machine – Extensive Review (Video Demo on my Instagram!)

akean rotating brush cleaner and dryer machine review and demonstration

The Story

I got the Akean Professional Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer Machine from Amazon for $26.99 after an extensive search for an electric rotating makeup brush cleaner similar to the Stylpro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer.

Why didn’t I just get the Stylpro cleaner instead, you ask? Well, because it generally has mixed reviews on the internet, and for mixed reviews I might as well just get something cheaper. This Akean Professional Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer Machine had pretty good reviews on Amazon from a lot of reviewers, hence it was my choice.

I got this electric makeup brush cleaner with my own money, btw.

Says Amazon/Akean:

Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil Review


The Story

My skin is crazy dry, and the freezing cold winters in Cleveland are NO HELP AT ALL. So, I was on the search for a product that could give my skin the moisture it was begging for, and after reading multiple good reviews of the Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil, I popped in at my local Sephora and bought this not-so-little guy.

Says Sephora about the Josie Maran Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil:

What it is:
An innovative, 99 percent natural creamy oil with an infinite number of uses such as hydrating skin, conditioning lips, and illuminating complexion.

What it is formulated to do:
One creamy oil, infinite possibilities. This makeup artist must-have delivers all the moisturizing benefits of argan oil in a portable, non-greasy, creamy oil form. The innovative formula starts as a cream and melts into an oil, making your complexion more luminous while tightening facial contours and preventing inflammation. Use it to hydrate and gently soothe under-eyes, smooth flyaways, keep eyebrows in place, and condition lips. Mix it with powder blush or eyeshadow to instantly transform it into a cream.

Suggested Usage:
Use Argan Infinity Cream to:
-Deeply moisturize dry areas of the face.
-Soothe irritated skin caused by rosacea, wind, or sunburn.
-Soften elbows, heels, and other rough patches.
-Keep stray eyebrows in place.
-Smooth flyaways.
-Moisturize at night.
-Prevent razor burn and irritation.
-Prevent skin dehydration during airline travel.
-Apply as a lip conditioner before lipstick.
-Apply over lip stain for a silky finish.
-Lightly dab on eyelids before applying eyeshadow.
-Apply before or after using cheek stain to improve blendability.
-Transform powder eyeshadow or pigment into a cream by mixing with Infinity Cream.
-Mix with a powder luminizer to create a light, shimmery lip balm.
-Use as a subtle face highlighter to illuminate cheekbones, lips, and brow bones.
-Mix with a powder blush to create a silky cream blush or colored lip balm.
-Hydrate and plump dry, swollen under-eyes.
-Apply to fingertips and toes to hydrate and soften cuticles.
-Quench skin post-sunburn.

Recently I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette, and I’ve been having a great time trying out new looks with it. It is such a great, pigmented palette.

This was my first attempt doing a spotlight smokey eye using the palette, and I think it is a fun, sparkly look for New Year’s Eve!

I was inspired by @nikkietutorials , and I’m happy with how the spotlight eye turned out, but I still need more work, I think.

Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? What are your plans for the day? I’ll be going out for dinner with my husband to one of my favorite restaurants in this area.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful and prosperous New Year!

The Abyss – a black smokey eye makeup look

This look was inspired by An Kook on YouTube, and Desi Perkins.

It was my first time doing a black smokey eye, and I was really happy with how it turned out, especially as a first-time thing. I think it looked better in real life than it did on camera.
