Frugal Friday – SPAresource Brushes Giveaway!


The question I get asked most often is– what is your #1 beauty tip? My answer is always the same–get yourself a set of makeup brushes. Honsestly, most of the brushes that are included with makeup (with a few exceptions), you may as well as throw away. Good makeup brushes can make the difference between looking like Mimi from the Drew Carrey show and Angelina Jolie. 

Without brushes

With brushes

Okay, so maybe I exxagarate a bit, but you get the message. Makeup artists carry their “tool belt” just like a carpenter. Good quality well made brushes will last forever, that being said, good quality doesn’t necessarily have to mean expensive. I received the SPAresource Pro-Series On-The-Go Eye Essentials kit


This 6-piece kit retails for $15 and includes:

  1. EYE SWEEP BRUSH: use to apply and blend pressed or powder eye color to the eyelid and and makes a great brush to do a wash up to the brow bone.
  2. ANGLED EYE SHADOW BRUSH: use to define contour and blend color. I love using this in the crease!
  3. CREAM SHADOW BRUSH: use to pick up the perfect amount of cream color for easy and precise application.
  4. EYE SMUDGE BRUSH: use to diffuse color lines around the eye for a soft, smoky effect.
  5. LINER & BROW DEFINER: use to line eyes with shadows or gel liners and to fill out, shape and define eyebrows. This brush is little too stiff for eyeliner, but fab for brows!
  6. BROW & LASH DEFINER: use comb and brush to keep brows and lashes neat, clean and in place.

This is a great little eye brush set for a beginner. The bristles are soft and dense and the handles are short which makes them very easy to manuver. The addition of the cream eye shadow brush is an unexpected delight–most sets do not include a brush like this. It is made of synthetic hair designed to pick just the right amount of cream product and can also be used as a concealer brush. The other brushes are made of natural hair.

Right now for a limited time, SPAresource is offering 20% off the Pro-Series Cosmetic Brush Collection! All orders over $30 receive free shipping.

To help you get started on your brush collection, I’m giving away a SPAresource Pro-Series Powder Brush. This giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada over 18. To enter, simply tell me your favorite makeup brush–if you don’t own any, tell  me which brush you would like.

    Well I’ve only used Bare Escentual brushes for the past 10-11yrs so? I’m currently getting rid of all my BE in favor of Josie Maran and some UD so am just anxious to try other brush lines, don’t think BE’s are all that great (they shed like crazy)

    I’ve had one MAC eyeshadow brush for as long as I can remember. And this other fluffy one that was free (also over 10 years old) that I use to whack blush/bronzer on and sometimes translucent powder. Sometimes I think not having the right tools holds me back! I see some gorgeous makeup looks out there but have trouble replicating it. I’d love to practice with a proper kit ♥

    • cindy

      LOL “whack on bronzer.”

  • Julie B

    I use ecotools brushes. I have one Larenim eyeshadow brush I use with my favorite eyeshadows from Larenim. Never used brushes till last year at the age of 50, couldn’t believe the difference they make! All those years of using silly little sponge applicators.

    • cindy

      I hear ya Julie! We had never heard of brushes on “our day.” Wow, they really make a difference!

    I don’t own any really good brushes; I just use whatever comes with the product. Most of them are rather scratchy, tho. I’d like to own nicer ones. I am an email subscriber and I also like Prime Beauty on FB. Sherry Brooks

    I love my shader brush from MAC

  • DRTVRMoi

    I love my Smashbox brushes. Of all these gems, my fav is the face brush that come with Halo.

  • Cindy (myfuel)

    My favorite brush is the MAC 239 e/s brush.

  • Barb

    Smashbox brushes.

  • Cynthia

    The only eyeshadow brush I have is the MAC 224 fluffy blending brush and I LOVE it since it’s the only brush I have. I try to do the most I can with it. My family is less fortunate and my mom could only afford to buy me one brush for my birthday but I was very grateful for it. My passion is makeup and it would be a big blessing so win. Thank you. :)

  • Tricia

    angled eye brush…but i’ve yet to find a blush brush that I LOVE. I want a soft brush that holds the powder…
