Review: It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Anti-Aging Lipstick

What a long name for such a little product lol. It Cosmetics sent me their newest multi-tasking lippie, which promises to replace your lipstick, balm, stain and gloss. They are calling it a ‘Lip Flush’ and I’m kinda diggin’ the concept.

Swatches: Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation (Ivory vs Light)

Review: Harvey Prince Yogini

I’ve been on a major fragrance kick lately. The front running scents in my arsenal are mostly from one of my new favorite brands, Harvey Prince. I’ve posted about the brand a time or two before. They are the “scents with purpose” people who always put a unique spin on the notes of their perfumes.

Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation

If you’re a QVC junkie like me, you’ve probably seen this foundation on TV a time or two. This foundation launched back in March, 2011 and it’s been a hot commodity ever since. And until last month, the only place you could even buy it was on QVC. I was very excited to learn it’s now available both on Tarte’s website and at Sephora!

Review: NYC New York Color Liquid Lip Shine

Review: NYC New York Color Liquid Lip Shine

I’m sure all of us makeup junkies have tried an NYC product at least once in our lives, right? It’s one of the most affordable cosmetic lines at your local drugstore. And most of the time, their products are very comparable to some high-end lines. I can count at least 10 of my friends who swear by NYC Sunny Bronzer (you probably can too!).

Laura Geller All-Stars Collection

Laura Geller All-Stars Collection

Guess who picked up another makeup collection on QVC? Yeah.. this girl. It’s becoming a problem honestly lol. But to be fair, I did need to get a Balance N’ Brighten foundation in Fair, because the only shade I currently have is Porcelain and it’s waaaay to white for me nowadays. I guess I’m not the same pasty chick that I used to be ;) Plus, it’s just plain hard to turn down a Laura Geller collection under $50.

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

This was my first time trying out anything from the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics line. I have been dabbling back into the mineral makeup scene quite a bit lately, so I was excited to try an established mineral brand that was new to me. I’ve seen Youngblood products around youtube and a few of my friends rave about their foundations. Pretty sure I’ve also seen them mentioned in a few of my Allure mags.
