Real Vs Steal Giuseppe Zanotti T-Strap Sandals

 

The Giuseppi Zanotti T-Strap Sandals have been on the likes of Solange Knowles, Kim Kardashian, and Heidi Klum.

I found a pretty close look-a-like on gojane.com for $32.20. It’s available in black and nude. Lulus.com also has the look-a-like available in the same colors.

Real Vs. Steal | Jeffrey Campbell Lita Booties

The Jeffrey Campbell Lita Bootie was just featured in this week’s shoe spotlight as it’s one the the brand’s most recognized shoes. It’s been around for years now and shows no sign of letting up.

I found a pretty close look-a-like on gojane.com for $27. They’re suede and available in red, fuchsia, plum, teal, and jade. I wish they had them in black though because I tend to like my boots neutral so that they can go with most things in my closet.

Right now, they’re on sale for $10.99. That’s a long ways from $162.

Six e.l.f. Makeup Brushes You Should Own

Six e.l.f. brushes you should own

e.l.f. makeup brushes are some of the best on the market. Not only are they good quality, but they’re only $3. That’s right, $3. The brushes I’m going to talk about in this post are apart of the studio collection. (L-R in the image above):

  • e.l.f. Studio Small Angled Brush – This brush is mainly used for applying liquid or gel eyeliner. It helps to create a precise line exactly where you want it. (walgreens.com)
  • e.l.f. Studio Eyeshadow C Brush – This brush is mainly used for applying product to the eyelids, however it can also be used for the crease of the eyelid as well as for the brow bone highlight.  (walgreens.com)
  • e.l.f. Studio Concealer Brush – As the name implies, this brush is mainly used to apply and blend concealer. I prefer to use my fingers to put on concealer because I find that “patting” it on my face creates better coverage and trust me, I need it. After I pat the concealer on my face, I blend it in with a concealer brush (walgreens.com)
  • e.l.f. Studio Stipple Brush – This brush is mainly used to apply liquid foundation, however it can be used to apply blush. I wish this brush was bigger and more dense like the e.l.f. studio powder brush (see photo below for side by side comparison), but it’s really soft and my foundation is flawless when I use it. (walgreens.com)
  • e.l.f. Studio Angled Blush Brush – This brush is perfect for applying blush to the cheekbones or for applying contour to the hollows of the cheek, jawbone, and around the hairline. (walgreens.com,)
  • e.l.f. Studio Complexion Brush – This brush is used mainly to apply face powder to complete your makeup look. (walgreens.com)

Makeup brushes shed very easily if you don’t care for them properly. When washing them, do not soak them in water because this releases the glue used to secure the bristles. I experienced this with my kabuki brush (last photo below).

Real Vs. Steal | Giuseppe Zanotti Alien Suede Sandal

Real Vs Steal Giuseppe Alien Suede Sandals

The Giuseppi Zanotti Alien Suede Sandal (net-a-porter.com), characterized by serpent-like gold detailing has been worn by celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Khloe Kardashian, and Gwen Stefani.

It’s been quite some time since I’ve featured a look-a-like on this blog, but I found a pair similar to the Giuseppi’s on gojane.com for $46.80. They’re also suede and narrow where the zipper is at the back.  The shoes also have the serpent-link gold detailing, but it’s segmented and more like a centipede. They’re available in red, and black and urbanog.com also has them in black, nude, and red for $44.20.
