A beauty blog on the hunt the best performing beauty products whether it is high-end, drugstore, or low-end and everything in between. I love reviewing new products and bringing you swatches. I also keep everyone up to date on new makeup releases.
Inspired by Hollywood skin—always sexy, never shiny—this setting spray finishes your face makeup with a soft, cloudlike mist of mineral-rich charged waters—meaning your glow goes everywhere with you, no matter what. With a caffeine infusion it helps to wake up dull skin and instantly boost radiance, while a TEAOXI® complex of green, white, and red teas (a blend known to fight environmental stressors), works alongside other advanced ingredients to leave skin feeling hydrated, soothed, and smoothed.
GLAMTIP: Keep an extra bottle in the fridge for an ultra-energizing makeup-setting spritz.
This gentle, oil-free cleansing water leaves skin feeling refreshed, clean, and smooth. This formula not only cleanses skin but also removes makeup without drying the skin. Enriched with Chamomile to help hydrate and soothe.
How To Use:
Use morning and night to cleanse the skin. Apply to a cotton pad and gently smooth over the face and eyes to remove makeup. No need to rinse. Use daily or as often as needed.
Beauty Tip: For extra hydration, pair with the e.l.f. Daily Hydration Moisturizer after use.

This is a tinted mineral active sunscreen blend with zinc-oxide and titanium dioxide and plant derived antioxidants to nourish and protect your face from UVA and UVB rays.

It has broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, 80 minutes water resistant, no chemical actives, no synthetic fragrances, no retinyl palmitate, and no parabens. IT SMELLS so good too!!

This is also a mineral sunscreen with zinc-oxide and titanium dioxide. It has Ceramides to help repair and restore the protective skin barrier and Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to the top layer of the skin.
I love anything from SkinCeuticals especially this sunscreen. Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 provides high broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection with all natural physical filters, Zinc Oxide (Z-COTE) and Titanium Dioxide. Providing substantial power in an ultra-sheer, mattifying fluid, this sunscreen is infused with translucent color spheres to enhance natural skin tone. Tested on all ethnicities, this adaptable fluid provides discreet coverage while restoring radiance.
I was searching everywhere for a mineral sunscreen only lip balm – and now I have! Pure mineral protection for the thin layers of skin on the lip, ear and nose. Moisturizes, nourishes and is 100% Free of lanolin, oils fragrances and gluten. Contains the #1 rated sun protection ingredient for burning and aging rays (UVA-UVB).
This is the perfect little at-home airbrush sunless tanning system. I have been using it for years. I love it! It isn’t orange or a weird color and it doesn’t streak on me. Best of all – it’s inexpensive!

I also have my YouTube review as well.
I bought mine from QVC last week. They had a one day sale on this set so I had to pick it up. This collection comes in an awesome package from QVC. See my picture below.
–It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer:
This concealer is very much like the old/original Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer. I honestly didn’t see too much of a difference. You can see my swatches below comparing the two concealers. It is still a very good concealer just like the original. It is thick and creamy and really pigmented. From what I have read this concealer actually contains Drops of Lights Technology to create a brighter, soft luminosity under eyes. Make sure to set this concealer or else it will crease.
This is the shade Naturally Pretty and it’s a nice nude pink. This blush is awesome! It definitely packs a punch! It is a matte blush that is pigmented and creamy and lasts all day. I felt like it also make pores disappear. It does not enhance them like some blushes can. I really like it and I want to buy more colors.
UHHHH where the hell have I been? This powder is AMAZING! It truly smooths your pores out and fills in fine lines and wrinkles. What the hell kind of which craft is this stuff? I will continue to buy this as my setting powder. It works really well to dust over the face as a setting powder. BUT what I really love it for is to set my under eyes with it. I do my typical concealer and then I use my Beauty Blender to dip into this pressed powder and then I pat it under my eyes. It is awesome!
This is an awesome product too. It comes in a pretty big tub with a lot of product. I take this and put it on my dry skin to dissolve and melt off my makeup. I works really well and it smells kind of fresh and citrus-y. In the jar it looks like a hard wax type substance but it is similar to a hardened oil. It reminds me of coconut oil because once you put it in your hands it melts into an oil. It made my skin feel so soft, clean and hydrated.
Like its name this brush is definitely heavenly!! I have never had an It Cosmetics brush that I did not like and this one is amazing. I have nothing like it in my collection. The bristles are in a nice round dome shape. They are so soft too!!
All in all this collection is definitely worth the money and I love all of the products!
