It comes paired with the No-Tug Gel Eyeliner to give your eyes the attention they deserve. Help transform your complexion and eyes with makeup that looks and feels like your skin but better for your most radiant you!

About Each Product:

Celebration Foundation® Illumination Full Coverage Anti-Aging Foundation provides full coverage and illumination to your skin. Infused with peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants and skin-loving ingredients to nourish your skin and to help skin appear younger-looking, Celebration Foundation Illumination will never crease or crack and is also infused with Drops of Light Technology.

New! CC+ Radiance Ombré Blush is the perfect balance of color and luminosity, blending from matte to pearlized radiance – it’s a blush and highlighter in one compact. Formulated to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines, this anti-aging, color correcting formula in the perfect pink shade of Je Ne Sais Quoi® is beautiful on all skin tones.

New! Hello Lashes Extensions 24HR Mascara helps you achieve the look of false lashes. This five-in-one, clinically proven 24-hour wear mascara features the blackest black melted nylon fibers infused into our volumizing and lash-loving Hello Lashes Mascara to help you achieve long, thick and dramatic lashes in one quick coat application! Infused with lash-enhancing and conditioning ingredients, including vitamin B5, peptides, collagen, proteins and green tea.

No-Tug® Waterproof Gel Eyeliner is clinically proven to remain waterproof for up to 12 hours without tugging the delicate eyelids. Highly pigmented and anti-aging in both its application and its ingredients, this eyeliner is formulated with skin-loving hydrolyzed collagen, silk, rose and antioxidants.

Heavenly Luxe Double Airbrush Foundation Brush features dual fiber brush hairs that flawlessly work to blend foundation onto your skin and help blur away imperfections. You don’t need to be an expert – IT does the work for you!

I received a sample of this collection for testing purposes.  I have tried the Celebration Foundation and the brush before — its a really easy way to achieve flawless coverage and a lovely glow.  Plus, IT Cosmetics brushes are my favorites, and this one is soft and applies the foundation well.

The eyeliner isn’t new, but I haven’t tried it before.  I love that this is a black-brown. It is a deep color, but not as stark as black. I really like how this glides on easily and is very well-pigmented.  The mascara is new and is WOW on my little lashes!  Gives length and volume, it really looks like I have on false eyelashes.

The blush is also new.  It is a really pretty pink.  I applied it how it was suggested — you swirl your brush around the whole compact and sweep on cheeks, then use just the lightest color as a highlighter on the cheekbones.  Really pretty!

Product Round-Up — My Fave Beauty Things Week of September 22, 2014

Tags

, ,

It has been warm this week, in the 80’s every day.  I’m kind of sick of it and am dreaming of cooler weather so that I can wear fall clothes!

I’ve been super busy this week!  My friend Lauren is getting married next week and I have been asked to do hers and her fiancé Stephanie’s makeup for the big day.  So much fun!  (Next week I may do a bridal related favorite things on Saturday and I will be busy on Sunday, wedding day).

So, I just have three fave things this week, but they are all fantastic — a lovely pressed powder, unscented body oil and some great hair products for damaged hair:

Osmosis Pressed Base

Osmosis Pressed Base

Osmosis Pressed Base ($34 USD) — Formulated for all skin types, the Osmosis Colour Pressed Base provides a flawless and seamless, semi-matte finish with long-lasting coverage. Natural broad-spectrum UV protection shields skin from UVA and UVB rays, helping to prevent premature aging and hyperpigmentation. It applies quickly and easily with no mess and is packaged in a stylish mirrored compact.

What I think: I have been testing this in Golden Light.  It is a nice match with my skin tone.  I apply it with a powder brush and get really good coverage.  It works as a finishing powder as well.

Find retail locations at http://www.osmosisskincare.com

Sublime Beauty Daily Body Oil

Sublime Beauty Daily Body Oil

Sublime Beauty Daily Body Oil ($21.99) — Nourish and feed skin to its best state. Sweet almond oil, sesame, aloe, argan and jojoba sooth, heal, and hydrate the skin. Containing natural anti-inflammatories, vitamins and nutrients, this all natural oil leaves skin feeling fresh and soft.

What I think: This oil is unscented, which is good for people who do not like their products scented.  I actually am a fan of at least a little fragrance in my oils and lotions.  It feels more luxurious that way.  But, I do find that the oil is nice, especially after a shower.  It locks in the moisture.

Available at www.sublimebeautyshop.com.

Infusium23 Moisture Replenisher Collectiona

Infusium23 Moisture Replenisher Collection

Infusium 23 Moisture Replenisher Collection ($6.99 each product) — features Avocado & Olive Oil blends nourishing vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to maximize hydration and deliver moisture transformation, for silky-soft, healthy hair. It includes shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment.

What I think:  I have been enjoying this collection, as well as the Infusium 23 Repair & Renew with Keratin & Argan Oil.  All of these Infusium 23 products have very nice fresh scent.  After use of the shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment, my hair is so soft and seems much more healthy.  It’s so important to take care of your hair when you heat style it.     

Products are available at major retailers nationwide. ​​

Love Dove For Your Skin? Try Their Advanced Hair Series of Hair Care!

Tags

, ,

Dove has recently launched their Advanced Hair Series, which contains the brand’s most advanced weightless moisture formulas, combining luxurious ingredients, designer fragrances and beautiful packaging.

I was sent a wonderful package of Dove hair care to test for my honest review.  Here are my favorites:

NEW Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.99 each) — Delivers 5X silkier hair*, without leaving it greasy or heavy. It is infused with African Macadamia Oil and Coconut Oil. The shampoo is a silicone-free formula Conditions hair without making it feel greasy or heavy Provides a rich, creamy lather Gently cleans hair

The conditioner is a silicone-free formula that nourishes hair without making it feel greasy or heavy.  It deeply penetrates hair to help replenish lost/damaged lipids.  It moisturizes and detangles.

What I think:  Both of these products seem so luxe, it’s hard to believe how inexpensive they are.  The combination on the shampoo and conditioner leaves my hair so soft and shiny.  I don’t need a lot of product after washing with these.  I also find that my hair is less frizzy with use.

NEW Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray ($5.99 USD) — A light mist provides targeted lift from the roots.  Does not weigh hair down at the roots, where it tends to fall flat.  Lifts hair at the root for added body and fullness.  Provides all day hold for the style. Spray on damp hair at the root and blow-dry.

NEW Dove Oxygen Moisture Leave In Foam ($5.99 USD) — Ultra-light leave in-treatment. Keeps style in place all day long without weighing hair down. Adds shear moisture and nourishment, plus gives light hold and control. Hair is easy to manage and strengthened by reducing breakage. Provides all day hold for the style. Evenly distribute through wet or dry hair, focusing on the ends.

What I think:  For ladies with fine hair like me, these products are a perfect way to add some volume.  I use these together, starting with the foam, then I apply the spray on my roots and blow dry.  My hair has much more volume after I blow dry, or even if I just air dry my hair.

I really am loving these dove products.  Check them out at mass market retailers near you.  These are just a few of the fantastic products in the line.

Enjoy!

Product Round-Up — My Fave Beauty Things Week of September 15, 2014

Tags

, , ,

September sure is going by quickly!  Fall is this Tuesday!  I thought I would let you know what I am enjoying this week while I drink my iced Pumpkin Spice Latte.  It’s almost fall, but it’s still pretty warm outside.

This week, I have been loving a facial mask with wine antioxidants, new shavers, a hydrating hair mask and a new natural bath and body line.

Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliating Mask

Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliating Mask

Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliating Mask ($29 USD) — Pür’s Wine Exfoliating Mask gently buffs away rough, dull skin with natural peach stones (seeds) as it fights signs of premature aging with red wine antioxidants from Bordeaux’s finest vineyards. Watch lines, dark spots and uneven skin fade from sight as Farm to Jar™ ingredients work to reveal a visibly more youthful glow. Paraben-free. Gluten-free.

What I think:  This mask smells like a delicious glass of red wine!  It can be used as a scrub or a mask and either way, leaves my skin smooth.  I have noticed my skin is more even toned as well.

BIC Soleil Glow razor

What I think: I was pleasantly surprised by this razor.  It is rare to get a close shave by a razor that has moisturizers on it.  But, this razor left my legs and underarms so smooth.  I definitely recommend these!

Available at a mass market retailer near you.

Carol’s Daughter Tui Color Care Hydrating Mask

Ulta

It’s the third and final weeks of ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty!  The time has flown by and it’s almost fall.  Do you have your fall makeup yet?  What new makeup have you purchased?

Today’s steals are:

Laura Geller Beauty Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation ($20 on sale today, $33 regular price) — A revolutionary baked foundation with multiple color infusions to color-correct your skin and give you a glowing, flawless-looking complexion. Mineral oil and paraben-free formulation also contains powerful anti-aging and anti-oxidant protection of centella Asiatica and white tea extracts. Features a matte finish.

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara ($10 on sale today, $19.50 regular price) — Inspired by the on-set technique of layering a lengthening fiber mascara over a volumizing formula, Smashbox’s new studio-tested mascara exposes your longest, fullest lashes.
