I finally decided to place and order and see what all the fuss was about. I got everything in this photo for $15.60 with shipping. You certainly can’t beat that kind of deal!

AOA Perfect Pressed Powder
Highlights–Velvety, finely milled soft powder :: use to set, brighten, contour, blur pores, and more :: vegan :: paraben free
Pros–Creamy :: shade match for me :: works with my dry skin :: set my foundation without caking :: locked makeup in place :: skin looked smooth & flawless
Thoughts–I applied with a brush and stippled it into the skin to set my foundation. It didn’t really blur my pores, but overall, my skin looked really smooth and flawless.
AOA Hush Cream Blush
Highlights–Silky :: seamless :: buildable :: flushed look :: paraben free
My Shades–Merlot & Passion
Pros–Pigmented :: creamy :: buildable :: easy to blend :: shade range :: little bit goes a long way
Thoughts–You need the tiniest amount of product so these pans will last a long time. I used the F7 brush to stipple it on and it was very easy to blend. They are pigmented but you can sheer it out or build it up depending on how much you use and the tool you use for application.
F7, F9, E107, and E109 Brushes
Highlights–Ultra-plush :: densely packed :: minimal shedding :: synthetic bristles :: vegan :: hypoallergenic :: antibacterial
Price–$2 per set
Pros–Very soft :: F7 is perfect for cream blush :: F/face brushes hold up well after washing
Cons–E109 & E107 completely fell apart when I washed them, all the bristles came out :: some initial shedding with the F/face brushes
Thoughts–I got the F7 for cream blush, F9 for cream bronzer, E109 for nose contour, and E107 for eye primer. I had to trash the E/eye brushes because they completely fell apart when I washed them. Both of the face brushes have been washed a few times and have held up fine.
APPROVED F7 & F9
NOT APPOVED E107 & E109
Paw Paw: Sponge Cleansing Soap
Highlights–Travel friendly in case :: soft & gentle but gets all makeup and grime off :: smooth texture helps to prevent sponge from damage while washing :: vegan :: Argan Oil to keep sponge soft.
Pros–Cute packaging :: smells good
Cons–Doesn’t clean as well my other solid brush soaps
Thoughts–It doesn’t clean as well my other solid brush soaps. It didn’t break down remove all the build up in my sponges or my brushes.
Full review coming soon on a –Foundation Friday–
Paw Paw: Super Soft Wonder Blender Beveled
Highlights–Latex free :: flawless application :: unique shape allows it to be used for many different products :: easy to grip :: 2x softer than original AOA wonder blender
Pros–So soft :: blends easily :: easy to clean
Thoughts–This is THE softest sponge I have ever used. Jessica Braun recommended this sponge and I get why she loves it so much. If you only get one product from today’s post, get this. I will definitely be ordering more of these.
The stand out products were definitely the sponge and the cream blushes. I will definitely be ordering more from this site to test and try out.
