Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual

Grr!!! Gotta repost! I can't even copy and paste because everything is coming out wierd looking.... I had to delete my previous post because it caused a layout malfunction... But here is the post:

I just got my Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual from Amazon. I got it for about $20 compared to Bobbi Brown's website where it is going for $32. 

Brush Care:
Did you know that Bobbi Brown likes to use baby shampoo for brush care? Basically, swirl the brush in your palm with the soap and then rinse but do not immerse the brush head in water because the hair will come apart!................... I <33

Makeup care:
Take out anything that is in a broken container or missing a cap. You can pour liquid foundation into a fresh bottle, scoop out creams and lipsticks and transfer them to small containers or palettes, and place capless pencils in sip-toop plastic bags. Broken powder blushes and pressed type compacts are irreparable and should be tossed. Weekly maintance is easier than semiannual overhauls.

You also need to get rid of any makeup that's past its expiration date:
Liquid and cream foundation - 2 years
Concealer - 2 years
Powder - 2 years
Mascara - 6 months
Lipstick - 12 to 18 months
Lip and eye pencils - 12 to 18 months
Eye shadow - 2 years
Powder blush - 2 years
Cream blush - 2 years
Moisturizer - 2 years
Eye cream - 6 months
Sunscreen - 2 years
Face cream - 2 years

I stopped at this section and went to go attempt to throw away things... Was not really successful... Only threw away my beloved Imju Fiberwig because it was done anyways.... Going to go back to the book now! :D

:D I got the skinfood stuff from skintouch :D She's great, even though some items aren't on the site, you can request it for an extra 2$ fee, and shipping is "free" even though, i bet the items actually cost less, but yeah, she includes samples as well ^^ I was thinking of getting the peach sake pore serum too! I'll probably get that on my next order ~ Oh yeah, and I like her better than ebay because she ships quickly too, straight from korea, it took/takes about one week to get to me :D And yep, baby pink is my favorite color xD Aww man i just checked skintouch site, they are now having a promotion for free mask sheet w/ $25 purchase! >:[
