They also have two gorgeous Birdie Eyeshadow Palettes that look like bird cages. One is called Early Birdie and the other one is called Pretty Birdie. They look so vintage and cool.

IBY Beauty Mineral Pressed Blush Review

I received a sample of the¬†IBY Beauty Mineral Pressed Blush in my Spring 2107 Beautycon Box and it’s beautiful! The IBY Blush is¬†Paraben and Talc Free and it’s Made in the USA.

I come in 4 shades: Peach Sheen, Raspberry, Peachy and Passion Pink. I have the Peach Sheen shade.

What’s to love?

While I had not heard of IBY Beauty I can say that I am loving this highly pigmented blush. It’s also silky soft and makes my skin glow with a bit of sheen. I like having a few peachy blushes in my stash for when I where brown eye shadow and my Urban Decay Vice Amulet lipstick.

It also very fine being a mineral blush which it a fresh and lustrous finish.


I also found that it has great staying power and it can layered for additional looks.

Full-Sized Price: $16

Happy Friday! I thought I would have a little fun tonight so I came up with 21¬†quirky¬†questions about beauty and pop culture as I think the two are very much connected. It’s kind of a “get to know me” Q & A and anyone is welcome to copy my questions to play.

Jelly shoes. OMG I had a pearl white pair that gave me the worst blisters ever.

Bumble & bumble Seaweed Conditioner Review

I have to say my new favorite hair brand is Bumble & bumble. I picked up the Seaweed Conditioner this week and I love it!


What’s to love?

The Bumble and bumble Seaweed Conditioner is very light and is a thinner consistency than a lot of conditioners I’ve used however that does not mean it’s ineffective.

After shampooing with the Lush Big Shampoo I applied about a quarter sized drop to my chin length hair. It was easy to work into my thick hair and the smell is amazing. It’s a fresh lime scent with a sea salt undertone. It’s so fresh and pretty. It also did a nice job of detangling my hair.

It was also very easy to rinse out and after a few uses I noticed that my hair has been super shiny and manageable. It does a great job on my frizz and I feel like every time I use it my hair looks better.

Overall I love it! This is going to be my new Summer conditioner and I’d like to try a few more products from Bumble and bumble.

Ingredients include: Ascophyllum Nudosum Extract, Macrocystis Pyrifera (Sea Kelp) Extract and Spirulina Maxima Extract

Price: $25

It Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow Review

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 ‚Äď sheerest naturally pretty glow
  • Natural Glow ‚Äď natural rosy kiss
  • Warm Glow ‚Äď 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!

Clinique Crayola Limited Edition 4-Pack Review

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.
