  1. Wow, that’s a lot of lipsticks! Beautiful, though. I also love those Ecotools brushes – such a good buy. Though I find with the Simple skin care line that my skin breaks out…

    • I rotate the heck of out my lipstick Alanna!
      Yes! ecoTools makes amazing brushes! Skincare is such a personal thing: you have to do a lot of trial and error to figure out what works best for you. I have had some hits and some misses with Simple!
