I am so excited to have gotten my hands on the new It Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow this week. This is a highlighter, blush and bronzer all in one.
It comes in 3 shades, I have the Natural Glow
- Nude Glow – sheerest naturally pretty glow
- Natural Glow – natural rosy kiss
- Warm Glow – your richest shade of bronzer
First up it’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be at 4.5″ wide.
What’s to love?
The packaging on this palette is so pretty with a round It branded metallic closure on top that’s super secure. Inside there is a nice mirror.
The product itself is so luxurious. I did not get the Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder Brush #705 for $48 but my Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush Travel Size #7 works quite well.
The formula itself is vitamin C-infused and it really does have a nice orange scent. It does have “Drops of Light Technology” and I have to say that my skin really does glow with this product. I like to pick up all three shades with my brush for my checks then do a little cheekbone highlighting with the lighter highlighter shade.
It also feels very silky and soft on my face which I love.
Overall I’m thrilled with this palette and would like to try the Nude Glow. I’ve been very happy lately with It Cosmetics and get a lot of compliments about my make-up so that’s a plus too!
I had so many products that I loved this month and it was hard to narrow it down to just 10 but here goes. I created an April Beauty Favorites video!
Here are the reviews of my April Monthly Favorites!
I hope you enjoy my picks!

The Clinique Crayola Limited Edition 4-Pack has been on my wish list for a few weeks and I finally picked it up on sale at Sephora.
What’s to love?
First up the packaging so so adorable. I’ve been wanting these Clinique Chubby Sticks just because they look like Crayola crayons.
The colors are also very nice too. from left to right I got:
- Fuzzy Wuzzy (Brown) – Chubby Stick Intense
- Mauvelous (Raisin) – Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Balm
- Melon (Light Orange) – Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Balm
- Brick Red (Dark Red) – Chubby Stick Intense
The Intense sticks have more color and the Moisturizing Lip Balm is more sheer and I love them both! They have great pigmentation and feel amazing on my lips.
They are free of Parabens, fragrance, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, DPB (dibutyl phthalate), and camphor.
Also be sure to check out my April Beauty Favorites video which has the Clinique Crayola Chubby Sticks.

The Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Smoothing Body Scrub is so strong and amazing if you love mint like I do.
What’s to love?
I love the entire Stress Relief line from Bath & Body Works and the Eucalyptus Spearmint scent is one of my favorites.
This creamy foaming body scrub is really strong and I would recommend smelling it before you buy. I happen to love the Eucalyptus Spearmint scent, to me it’s so relaxing.
The scrub is moderately grit and uses walnut shell powder for exfoliation. It’s also got Jojoba Seed Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Spearmint Oil, Orange Oil, Peppermint Oil and Hydrogenated Caster Oil.
It leave my skin silky smooth and the scent does linger for awhile.
I don’t usually “Press” blog posts but my best friend just started a crocheting blog (check her out if you love to crochet at Imperial Crochet) and she just ordered the Be So Sporty yarn from Kristin Omdahl and it came with Yarn Soap! How cool is that? She got a sample packet of Jasmine Wrapture which is a no-rinse delicate soap that you use when hand-washing your finished item. You can read Robin’s blog post here.
Kristin Omdahlh also has a line of organic beauty products including an organic sugar scrub that I want to try.

They haven’t announced when it will launch but I can’t wait!
