Get Into The Limelight Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge

I am going to say it #BeautyBagDolls Get Into The Limelight what do I mean you ask? The Get Into The Limelight is a brand I have mentioned before in an earlier review for their Selfie Ring Light full review here. However now I am bringing you a review of their Get Into The Limelight Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge. I was lucky enough to try out two of their Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponges. They come in two color choices clear and pink and they have a lime slice on them with tons of glitter (do not worry the glitter does not get on your skin it is inside the actual silicone sponge). At first the seem too cute to use but after you touch one your going to be so surprised. Other silicone sponges I have use are much more firm compared to this one. These are soft and squishy which in all honesty makes them easier to use and get under my eye are when applying concealer and foundation. To purchase yours visit Get Into The Limelight.
This Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge applicator is the only makeup applicator I need in my beauty bag! You need to Get Into The Limelight!

If you have never used a silicone sponge before then this one is the perfect way to start. I have found it to be the best one I have ever used because it is not stiff like others it is pliable. For me ease of use is a big factor and this one is easy to use and clean. You use probably less than half of the product you would use with brushes or other sponges because the Get Into The Limelight Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge absorbs NOTHING! Yes it absorbs no one drop of your concealer, foundation, crème blush or highlighter. It is truly the one makeup applicator that will not waste your makeup like other sponges and brushes that suck it up into them wasting away your expensive products.  For me this is also the most sanitary way of applying your makeup because right after your done and going to wash your hands you just dab a little of your favorite makeup cleanser onto the Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge and run it under some warm water pat it dry and store it out of direct sunlight. This is the perfect applicator and a beauty bag must have without a doubt. I give it 5 $$$$$ and EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation w/SPF50+

Hello to all of my #BeautyBagDolls & It Cosmetics Fans! I have a special sneak peek type review for you of something that is coming to QVC toward the end of this month! If you are a fan of It Cosmetics like myself you are probably aware of their amazing powder foundations and right now for the first time I tried one I have not yet used it is the It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+  which is like the original best selling celebration foundation ( I have been using that for years) but the genius Jamie Kern Lima has added SPF 50+ UVA/UVB broad spectrum sunscreen. This will be available on QVC in a special deal so to find out when you have to check my blog late next week for all of the information. Your going to want to know that, trust me! NOTE: JOIN the ITGirl Superhero team for It Cosmetics here @ http://sot.ag/4QqgY you will earn points for prizes from It Cosmetics. This month only join and earn double points for double the chance!
This It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF50+ is EVERYTHING to me so it is a beauty bag must have!

Until then I am going to give you a review of this awesome It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+, which has not left my side since trying it out. I switch between liquid and powder foundations all the time it just always depends on the coverage and time that I have that morning when I am getting ready. When I read that  It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+ was still full coverage like the original foundation but with SPF I was thrilled, it saves me a step when applying my makeup and skincare so why not?! This foundation is describe as a  "full-coverage powder foundation," that is "rich in peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, and grape seed oil, this foundation is highly pigmented, delivering full coverage in 30 seconds!" "Celebration Foundation protects your skin while airbrushing your skin to complexion perfection."  I was so excited to put this to the test because I avoid powder at time because I have to layer my SPF protection first and with the CC cream I use from It Cosmetics my SPF is included, however when I want to use a powder I need to apply SPF first which is an extra step I don't have extra time to bother but now with  It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+ I get my full coverage and I mean full coverage foundation that is lightweight and doesn't look like a heavy powder along with that all important SPF 50+ sun protection. It literally takes me seconds to buff this on and move on with my makeup routine! I have been using the It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+ every single day since I got it which include long work days and days where I am outside doing yard work or having fun at the beach and poolside all with confidence that I have SPF50+ protecting me and getting the coverage I want to hide those imperfections! This for me without a doubt, is a 5 $$$$$ beauty bag must have that receives EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA! Please remember to check back next week for more details on a special deal and when this will be available for purchase via QVC.com


Check back next Thursday for a full review of this sneak peek!

Get Into The Limelight Limelight Selfie Ring Light

OMG! Break news #BeautyBagDolls I was sent something so awesome from an awesome brand called Get Into The Limelight This is a brand that makes a few things to make life easy and fun when applying makeup or taking selfies. My first review from this awesome brand is of the Get Into The Limelight Limelight Selfie Ring Light (I will have another of the Silislice Silcone Sponge coming soon). The Limelight Selfie Ring Light works with front and back camera shooting. All you have to do is "clip it onto your phone, tablet, or even your makeup mirror for a flawless finish and a selfie worth sharing! Unlike other photo enhancing lights, the Limelight has 24 built-in LEDs that can be adjusted with an easy-to-use dimming switch."
Get a little light help from Limelight and get your selfie game on!

I was super excited to try out this its something I hadn't really thought about when taking selfies. Lightening is everything or so I hear when I read about celebrities and now Get Into The Limelight has brought lighting to you with their Limelight Selfie Right Light. As described you just make sure its charged up and keep it near by you and your phone so when the moment strikes that you need to take a selfie clip on you Limelight Selfie Ring Light and you will have the perfect lighting for your photos. I am really happy with how easy this is to use and how my photos have perfect lighting. It really gives you a much better selfie than without it and I feel like after I get all dressed up with my hair and makeup on point the Get Into The Limelight Limelight Selfie Ring Light makes you feel even better when looking back at your photos. The celebrities are right lighting is key! This truly is a must have and a little secret you can have or you can be like me a take it with you everywhere with you in case you need to take a selfie and then people will stop you and ask you what that is your using on your phone?! I got stopped so many times over the past few days of using the Limelight Selfie Ring Light asking me what it is and where I got it?! I of course let everyone know it is from Get Into The Limelight this is a 5 $$$$$ product and a beauty bag must have! EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA without a doubt.

COOLA Primer & Setting Spray

Hello #BeautyBagDolls I am going to bring you a duel review today of two product from a brand that I have come to know, love and trust when it comes to SPF protection. The brand is of course COOLA. They are brand I first learned about a while ago and I used the sun protection all the time when heading out doors but now I am learning about their skincare line for the face. Their newest products are the COOLA Daydream Mineral Primer and The COOLA Makeup Setting Spray.
COOLA has you covered with SPF all while helping you keep your makeup on longer. A beauty bag must have!

I start my makeup routine with a primer and now I have a primer that makes it even easier because the COOLA Daydream Mineral Primer has SPF 30 in it which means I am being protected with SPF each time I apply this before my makeup. The COOLA Daydream Mineral Primer silky smooth formula shields your skin with our signature Plant Protection and mineral broad spectrum SPF 30, while a bouquet of Honeysuckle, White Lily and Iris Stem Cells instantly enhances overall skin quality." I noticed immediately that my skin was silky smooth and my pores were blurred but I truly love that my skin was so smooth I can easily apply my concealer and foundation. For several days I only used the  COOLA Daydream Mineral Primer and makeup seemed to stay I only had to reapply my highlighter after about 9 hours because I love a nice glow to my skin but I now have to admit that after I added the COLLA Makeup Setting Spray I never had to reapply even my highlighter. That truly made my makeup all day wear! The COOLA Makeup Setting Spray is something you have to use if your tired of your makeup melting off your face. This is "the first ever SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray. A simple spritz of our weightless, matte finish mist protects the sensitive skin of your face while keeping your makeup looking fresh all day." I have to attest that it is a matte finish which is what I want in a makeup setting spray and it truly does keep your makeup on and fresh all day, you can even reapply just to boost the SPF 30 coverage on you face. I am so in love with that fact, SPF 30 in a setting spray. This formula also has "Cucumber and Aloe Vera Extracts to help soothe and refresh skin while Hyaluronic Acid, known to bind moisture, helps to soften, tone and rehydrate skin. A powerhouse of Peony Leaf, Juniper Berry and Phoenix Leaf Stem Cells reinforces the skin barrier and provides antioxidant protection. Set, restore and protect with confidence knowing our 70% + organic formula has you covered!"  I am so thrilled with the COOLA Makeup Setting Spray and in combination with the Daydream Mineral Primer you makeup is an unstoppable duo and two beauty bag musts. I give both a 5 $$$$$ and EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Shop COOLA to purchase.

Each and everyday I looked forward to using this eye cream because I had results and it did not irate my sensitive eyes at all. My over all results so far is that it has decreased my puffiness, tighten my eye area, hydrated the skin and brightened it over all.

It is something we often neglect to care for. Out hair is affected by the sun and thankfully Bare Republic Eco-Active Haircare has a shampoo and conditioner that is UV protecting.

Protect your hair from the sun like you do your skin with Bare Republic hair care!

The  Bare Republic Eco-Active UV Protecting Shampoo is made with monoi oil, mango butter, quinoa extract and pro-vitamin B-5. This is a mango scented sulfate free shampoo that I love.

Golden Door 3-Piece Try Me Kit

#BeautyBagDolls I have an amazing treat for you today! It is new to me and to my blog of course but it is welcomed addition to my beauty bag. It comes from Gold Door and it is their 3 Piece Try Me Travel set. This is a great way to try out 3 of their different products or if your already a fan you have them in a great travel size to take with you on your summer adventures! Inside the beautiful cosmetics bag that is included with this try me kit purchase is 5 fl. oz. Bamboo Face Scrub,  5 fl. oz. Golden Peel-A-Way Masque and 2 fl. oz. Hydrating Cleansing Milk. I used each of these and to learn more read on. To purchase visit Gold Door.
3 Golden Door Beauty Bag Musts that are skin changing! 

After opening the beautiful cosmetic bag I could hardly wait to try the products and I was drawn immediately to the Golden Peel-A-Way Masque but held off since I had a face full of makeup. I decided to first try the Hydrating Cleansing Milk which is a ultra-moisturizing face wash that helps exfoliate away dead skin cells and effectively removes makeup and impurities. It did indeed remove all of my makeup and left my skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated (it also smells amazing). The bottle is large enough to last for several days. I used every night and got about a weeks worth of cleansing. My skin looks and feels great which meant I was so excited to try the  Bamboo Face Scrub . I typically use scrubs 2-3 times a week and this travel size try me was the perfect way to try Gold Door Bamboo Face Scrub. I got two full uses and it really impressed me. After using the scrub my face had a reduction of pore size which is super important to me and it did not irritate my sensitive skin which is something I worry about every time I use a scrub.

After testing those two important pieces in the kit I feel I had saved the best for last and something that I love the mask. I do masks each and every day just about but this one was different it is the Golden Peel-A-Way Masque. I have tried other peel-a-way masks and they were decent but now I have tried the best in all honesty. The try me size is perfect to take with you on vacation or when your on a business trip to keep you skin glowing and balanced. I got two full masks out of this and it glides on easily with you just applying it with your fingers. I left this on for about twenty minutes and it was set however I enjoyed how it felt tingly so I left it on for an additional 5 minutes just to make sure it was set as well. I then began to peel it away and I revealed truly radiant skin. My face was hydrated, glowing and supple. The tingly feeling stuck around for another 15 minutes but I can honestly say it felt like the mask was still working even after peeling it away. I love the scent of the mask it was very pleasant and the fact that it aids in the skin's own natural cell turnover process by exfoliating dead skin cells is a major plus. I want to use this all the time the try me travel version is a perfect way to test it out and make you want more of it. I hope to try the larger version of the Golden Peel-A-Way Masque because after two uses I already see a positive difference in my skin. The cosmetics bag that is included is a cute bag that is the perfect size to take with you on vacation packing all of your travel size products to go. You will not go wrong when purchasing the Golden Door 3-Piece Try Me Kit I highly suggest it and give it a 5 $$$$$ along with EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Pretty Animalz Sheet Masks

If you are a mask loving #BeautyBagDoll like myself than your going to love the Pretty Animalz Sheet Masks by Masque Bar. I am huge fan of masks, I use one daily and if I am lucky I get to use one twice a day but these are a little different in a way where they are extra cute and fun. Each mask has an animal face imprinted on it. Its super cute and fun, which brings a smile to my face each time I use one.  I have the Pretty Animalz Panda Calming Sheet Mask and the Pretty Animalz Tiger Moisturizing Mask. Both are available for purchase at Target.com
Have some fun with a cute sheet mask all while calming or hydrating your skin! 

I started with the Pretty Animalz Panda Calming Sheet Mask because it is for calming and my skin in particular needed some calming that day. This particular sheet mask provides intensive hydration while Lavender helps to calm skin with its aromatic and skin soothing properties. I found it to be very calming for my skin and I applied it onto clean dry skin for about 20 minutes. I love the results, my skin felt refreshed and calm after using and absorbed the excess quickly. It was a very pleasant mask that didn't slip off and stayed on my face as I walked around. A few days later I could not wait to try the Pretty Animalz Tiger Moisturizing Sheet Mask. This mask is enriched with extracts that help nourish and hydrate your face and it is an anti-aging mask. I had a day that my skin needed some hydration so this mask was perfect. I looked like a super cut Tiger while wearing it and it stays on for 20 minutes and you peel it off and rub the excess until it is absorbed into your skin. These are both excellent masks and you can find them in my beauty bag. They are sold at Target and are very affordable which makes them a 5 $$$$$.

Shop Target to purchase.

Lauren B. Beauty

Get your top ten ready for the 4th of July holiday #BeautyBagDolls with Lauren B. Beauty Nail Polish. The colors are inspired by Los Angeles and are 5Free, Vegan Friendly and Made in the USA. I have the shade Laurel Canyon Lover, Santa Monica Shutters and PCH. I am thrilled that they are free of formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, formaldehyde resin or camphor. Lauren B. Beauty nail polish is something I fell in love with after just one stroke across my nails.  To shop Lauren B. Beauty click here.
Lauren B. Beauty has nail polishes that are beauty bag must! 

After these arrived I could not wait to get the polish I had on and as I though about the week ahead I decided to try Santa Monica Shutters first. This shade is described as "clean and fresh with a touch of translucence, this milky, off-white shade creates the best first-snowfall effect: one coat makes your nails look healthy and glowing; two coats lend them a pearly gleam." I absolutely agree with this description and opted for two coats. This is such a beautiful shade of nail polish and looks amazing on my nails. The shade of off white matched everything I wore and was going to wear for the rest of the week.  I also have to mention that they did not chip at all. The application process was the easiest I have ever experienced it glided on smoothly and didn't streak like most. I found this with all three shades which is such a pleasant surprise. The color pigments are true the PCH shade is described as "a stunning freshness of opaque cobalt blue. Tinged with purple undertones, it’s festive and on-trend and instantly lifts your mood." I must admit I my mood was lifted each and every time I look down at my toe nails. I also got lost of compliments and people asking me what shade of blue that I was wearing and who did my finger nails because the white was so perfect and not chipped! The final color was Laurel Canyon Lover which is  a "perfect balance between true red and burgundy, this shade looks sexy, festive and modern all at once" I must admit red is color I do not use often in the summer time until now.  This is a true red and burgundy as described  and looked very classy I wore it on my finger nails to work and they were a hit. My co-workers again wanted to know who did my nails. I am so thrilled with Lauren B. Beauty. The nail polish is superior and I don't need to even bother with a top coat which makes doing your own nails a breeze. Just apply this polish wait about a minute or two and you have perfect nails. Second coat is optional and this is a streak free formula!  This is truly a beauty bag must and the formula is without a doubt a 5 $$$$$ so of course this gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Biobelle Facial Masks in #decadence & #primer

#BeautyBagDolls I don't think its a big secret that I love masks and the Biobelle Facial Masks are awesome! I am thrilled that I got try two of them The #decadence and the #primer facial masks. These are two unique masks that will treat your skin to a wonderful spa experience. Shop Biobelle to purchase.
A face mask that is a #primer its just amazing and the mask that named #decadence these two will be staples in your beauty bag like they are in mine! 

The #decadence Biobelle Facial Mask is described as a mask that "instantly plump and vitalize to leave you looking well rested. Let the repairing and hydrating ingredients do their job as you take a journey to the softest, clearest skin you’ve ever had." The two major ingredients in this mask are chocolate which is  high in antioxidants which help in hydrating and softening the skin and acai berry which helps in retaining the moisture of the skin, and fighting off free radicals that can cause the appearance of fine lines. I had two of these masks and used one on a Monday and the other on a Wednesday and they are wonderful. They have enough product on them but its not an overwhelming drip all over the place amount and the mask says on your face. I love the results after removing it after 20 minutes my skin truly felt hydrated in face I skipped my nighttime moisturizer. My skin was also bright and plump. I am thrilled with the result from the Biobelle #decadence Facial Mask, this is a beauty bag must have!

Next up is a brand new  Biobelle mask it is the #primer Biobelle Facial Mask This new  #primer sheet mask boosts facial texture, minimizes pores and evens skin tone while prepping the skin for a flawless makeup application. In just 5 minutes, our nutrient rich serum made with Tea Tree Oil, Rosehip Extract and Vitamin C, makes the skin look smoother, more hydrated, and glowing. I used this twice with the two masks I received. I applied it in the morning before my makeup routine and I kept it on for 5 minutes. After I removed it from my face it noticed my pores were almost non-existent and my skin was smooth and supple. I went on with my makeup routine skipping my usual primer and this Biobelle #primer Facial Mask really did become my primer it truly prepped my skin for makeup application and it applied evenly and flawlessly. This a is a beauty bag must have without at doubt.

Both Biobelle Facial Masks in #decadence & #primer are 5 $$$$$ and beauty bag must haves that get EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!
