Beauty First - First and last time ever!

I first heard about Beauty First from Vanessa from and was curious if there was a location in WA. On the website, there are 2 locations in WA state - one in Vancouver and the other in Woodinville. The latter location is closest to me and Vancouver, WA is about 4 hours away from where I live. No thanks! Woodinville is about 30 minutes from where I live so I decided to take the trek to check it out and see what selection they had for cosmetics, moreso if they had the Bella il Fiore line that I saw on the website.

Well, I was disappointed with my visit. The actual store itself is pretty small and the only cosmetic line they had was the Urban Essentials line and even that had slim pickings. All of the cosmetics, accessories and brushes from this line were 50% off but even at that much of a deal, I didn't find anything worth buying except this eyeshadow brush. The store was more geared around it's salon and haircare products. I didn't need anything haircare wise so after a couple times around the store, I called it good with the brush.

The brush was regularly $12.95. I thought it was a pretty good deal since I got it for half off. The bristles are taklon and very soft. The handle is 6" in lenght from the end of the brush up to the end of the ferrule. I think I may use this brush for either my MAC Paint Pots or Pigments. The great thing about taklon is that you can wash these pretty often without worrying about shedding and are great for both dry and emollient product.

Overall, I don't think I'll be returning to Beauty Right anytime soon. What a let down! :(
