​Measurable Difference® Studio Makeup Collection Train Case Makeup Kit
$29.99
I really am in serious LIKE with the ​Measurable Difference® Studio Makeup Collection Train Case Makeup Kit.  It contains a nice variety of of make up great for a beginner or a young lady to gain experience with applying makeup, or to have a complete kit for traveling.  It includes 24 pans of eyeshadow, 8 lip colors, pencils for brows, lips and eyes, blushers, brushes and more!  The case is CUTE and it is convenient.  It has a handle and there is space for a good amount of make up.  This is so easy to grab and go, while not being so large that it takes up too much room in luggage (preserving valuable space for accessories, shoes and cute bags) or on a vanity.

​This little Measurable Difference® Professional 6-Piece Makeup Brush Set is so nice. Not only is it pretty to look at but it has enough brushes to do a complete make up application. The brushes are of good quality and density. This high-quality set includes powder brush, eyeshadow brush, angled nose contouring brush, eyeliner brush, and an eyebrow brush comb.  The travel case makes it easy to take it with you for the day or to throw into a travel bag and go!
 
Measurable Difference® 6-Piece Makeup ER! Kit
$24.99
Measurable Difference® 6-Piece Makeup ER! Kit
​This cute Measurable Difference® 6-Piece Makeup ER! Kit (hot pink travel case) has the essentials to use while on the go.  It includes mascara, lip gloss, contour palette, eye liner and a bronzer stick.  It is perfect to throw in your purse.  I especially like the contour kit, easy to use for face and eyes.  The lip gloss is soft and shimmery.  The mascara worked nicely, no clumping or flaking.  The brush seemed a little large to me which made it seem a little hard to apply, but in an emergency it works.  I am not a fan of liquid eye liner and am not experienced with it,  so application was not successful and we will just imagine how awful I looked hehe.  I like the bronzer stick to use on my eye lids as a quick easy shadow or on my cheeks for some quick color, especially after the gym or a fitness class.

​This little Makeup ER case is super cute, small enough to fit in your purse yet large enough to fit the essentials.
Measurable Difference® Face & Body Bronzer
$7.99
Chrislie_Bronzer
OK confession time…I was taking this Measurable Difference® Face & Body Bronzer out of the box and dropped it.  Naturally onto my makeup counter, which is marble, and it smashed into a bunch of pieces.  After I said *%$#, I thought well heck I know how to fix that and what a perfect time to share it with you!  Meet a little DIY tip that will save you and your fave shadow or blush or powder.  If it is a powder base, this will work.
How_to_fix_cracked_makeup
To make the fix, you need:
1.  The evidence (aka the broken makeup) with as many pieces as you can salvage.
2.  Rubbing alcohol.
3.  A cotton swab.

Here is what you do:
Pour just enough alcohol onto the broken pieces to make them a paste that you can reform.  Use the cotton swab to get the mix together and then smooth it out.  Allow to dry completely, preferably overnight.  While not as pretty as new, it works just as well and does not harm the product.  Yay!  Easy AND frugal!
 
The next day after the bronzer was dry, I was finally able to try it out.  This is labeled a bronzer but this particular Pink shade I would use as more of a highlighter.  There are is a whole color palette of bronzers to choose from so you can find the shade that suits.  This has a nice little shimmer and works great to add some glow to your cheeks, under your eyebrows, on your decolletage, or anywhere you want highlight.  It is a large compact and will last a long time.  It goes on smooth and if you tap your brush before applying, it won’t fall off the brush onto area’s that you don’t want it.
I really enjoyed getting pretty with Chrislie!  Connect with Chrislie on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest
