One such beauty item is the Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brush Set, a trio of beautifully designed makeup brushes perfect for gifting any makeup junkie.

Artis, makers of the stunningly designed, ergonomic makeup brushes, has teamed up with beauty creator sensation Nicole Guerriero to create a limited-edition holiday gift set, the Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brushes, complete with gorgeous custom packaging.

The Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brush Set consists of the following brushes:

  1. Elite Mirror Oval 6:  The best selling size Artis brush in the world; this brush is a favorite among makeup artists and celebrities for applying foundation, concealer, highlighter, blush, contour, and even skincare formulas.
  2. Elite Mirror Oval 3:  This compact brush is a great size and shape to expertly apply and blend products on and around the eyelid area; including a focused application of foundation, contour or concealer to key areas of the face.
  3. Elite Mirror Linear 1:  A revolutionary brush designed so that a thin row of patented CosmeFibre makes creating line shapes easier.  In fact, whether you’re filling in your brows or lining your eyes, this brush is superb to use, because the line it draws can be as narrow as only a couple millimeters wide.

UBU Beauty Tools | Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Urban Beauty United (UBU) hit the scene with brightly colored makeup accessories that help you achieve the look you want for less! Their makeup brushes and accessories are great looking and help to inspire women and girls to express their individuality through their makeup tools. UBU uses color coding for their products according to usage: pink is for face, purple for eye, red for lip, and orange for complexion.

This is a unique and fun way to bring even more color into the makeup world! Here are some of the products that we have tried and fell in love with.

Smoke Screens Smokey Eye Brush Kit

UBU’s Smokey Eye Brush Kit helps you create the perfect smokey eye look that you lust for! Celebrities are often seen sporting this look, and now you can create this look at home. The brushes included in this kit are the Eye Defining Brush, the Smudger Brush, and the Tapered Blending Brush. So what are you waiting for? Find an easy to follow makeup tutorial on Youtube for smokey eyes (we all do it!) and get ready to impress!


 Lippety Stick Lip Brush

Something that every makeup lover may not know is that using a lipstick brush is better than just applying it directly to your lips. When you use a lipstick brush you have more control over the color and application. UBU’s Lippety Stick Lip Brush helps you to perfect your pout and define your lips way better than you would be able to with direct application. With the Lippety Stick Lip Brush you are able to get a more even application of color. Lipstick will last longer if you layer the color on with a lipstick brush, so you don’t have to keep reapplying your color over and over. You can also blend your lip liner and lipstick with ease to create a color that’s unique to you!

 Lash App False Eyelash Applicator

Love your falsies but have trouble lining them up with your natural lash line? UBU has the solution for you! UBU’s Lash App False Eyelash Applicator provides you with tiny tongs that help you to grip the lash, rather than just holding them between your fingers. The Lash App makes it easy to apply glue to the lashes and helps you apply them to your eyes with ease. Say goodbye to crooked lashes!
