I fell for this pallet with it after just a few times playing with a few shades. I used the shade Sheer Joy all over my eyelid then on the lid I used Sunset on the outer corner I smudged some All Heart and Soulful to create depth I smudged and blended with a dash of the Mocha shadow to make it look like  different kind of day to night eye. I also used Java wet to line my eyes and the Transforming Pearl Powder on my brow bone and inner corner to brighten it up and create a lift to my eye area. Now this didn't take me more than 5 minutes to achieve even thought I used several shades because the formulation of these eye shadows are so luxurious. It glides right on without tugging or pulling my eyelids shows up with just one swipe and does not crease even after wearing it all day long. I am so happy that IT Cosmetics includes eyelid loving ingredient's like peptides, collagen, silk and antioxidant because it make me comfortable using it and giving this Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eyeshadow Palette to every lady on my Birthday Gift List ( I have several coming through the spring/summer months)including my Mom (Birthday this Saturday) who has super sensitive eyes. In fact I went back a purchased 4 of these for all the special ladies on my Birthday list. I gave it to my mom early and she was THRILLED she fell in love with it after just one use because it didn't settle in  fine lines around her eyes because it didn't travel and it didn't irate her sensitive eyes either. She also like me didn't use an extra step (eye primer) before applying the IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eyeshadow Palette. The fact that you have 14 shades plus the Transforming Pearl which changes any one of the matte colors to a Pearl shade is AMAZING! Find this wonderful Eyeshadow pallet @
http://www.itcosmetics.com/naturally-pretty-vol-1-matte-luxe-transforming-eyeshadow-palette

I have struggled to find a Matte shadow on the market until being discovering to IT Cosmeitcs but the option to go pearl is just WONDERFUL when going to the memorial day party,  a date or a girls night out. I am so in love with having the OPTION to go pearl that I have been telling everyone I meet that I finally found another GREAT MATTE Eye Shadow Pallet!  IT Cosmetics has transformed eye shadow to the next level! It is perfect for women of all ages and it is perfect for everyday use and special enough for an event! Truly innovative and LIFE CHANGING! You can spend 5 minutes using just 6 different shades or 2 minutes using three shades to create a real fancy look or  a quick and easy look! You more options that you can count because they can be layered, used wet or dry and they all transform from matte to pearl with a swipe of the Transforming Pearl! Buy your own pallet for $42.00 @ http://www.itcosmetics.com/naturally-pretty-vol-1-matte-luxe-transforming-eyeshadow-palette

In case it isn't already obvious I give the IT Cosmetics NATURALLY PRETTY VOL. 1 MATTE LUXE TRANSFORMING EYE SHADOW PALETTE GETS A 5 $$$$$ FOR BEING A CREAMY, HIGHLY PIGMENTED SHADOW THAT DOES NOT TUG WHEN YOU APPLY IT. IT DOESN'T IRRIATE SENSTIVE EYES AND HAS EYE LID LOVING INGREDIANTS LIKE PEPTIDES, COLLAGEN, SILK AND ANTIOXIDANTS. MY FAVORITE PART IS THAT THEY ARE MATTE UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO USE THE TRANSFORMING  PEARL SHADE! THE IT Cosmetics NATURALLY PRETTY VOL 1 EYE SHADOW IS AMAZING! ITS VALUE IS UNBEATABLE FOR 14 SHADES OF EYE SHADOW AND THEY ARE HIGHT PERFORMANCE! THEY WONT COME OFF UNTIL YOU TAKE THEM OFF AND THEY NEVER CREASE OR SETTLE! I AM KEEPING THIS ONE EYE SHADOW PALETTE WITH EVERY SHADE IN MY BEAUTY BAG AND I BOUGHT SEVERAL FOR MY FRIENDS!
Extra Love from Anna: I am in LOVE with this Eye Shadow Pallet from IT Cosmetics because they are Lid loving ingredients that have changed my opinion of eye shadow forever. I used to struggle to find a Matte Eye Shadow but now I have found my forever Eye Shadow Brand! It is a creamy powder that has made my eye shine bright!

I am thrilled to bring to you today a very special review of a few products that was sent to me complimentary of the Japonesque company! It is there AMAZING Pro Foundation and Pro Concealer Brushes in Travel Size along with the Japonesque Velvet Touch Concealer Shade 02 and the Japonesque Luminous Foundation in both Shades 01 and 02. I am so very excited to tell you about these two AWESOME products that go together perfectly! Find your perfect face with Japonesque products here @ http://japonesque.com/
Love JAPONESQUE foundation, concealer and the travel size brushes! MUST HAVES!


When I got the package fill with these goodies I was excited to try them out and then very next day I did. I opened up the brushes Japonesque Velvet Touch Concealer in shade 02 and it really did feel so velvety soft. I dabbed it on my dark circles, some red spots, some acne breakout and some old acne scars. In an instant they were gone and I looked really good. The color match was flawless my skin wasn't irritated and it didn't look caked or settle in to fine lines and wrinkles! The best part was it wasn't drying and I could have went out just like that if I wanted too! Find your concealer here @ http://japonesque.com/color-cosmetics/face/velvet-touch-concealer

 We all know (at least those of you who read my blog regularly) that I don't only love makeup I live for it so I of course had to try the foundation. The Joponesque Luminous Foundation that was sent to me in shades 01 and 02 seemed the same but after testing I decided to start using shade 02 since I have started to self tan in the early spring just to give my self a glow the Japonesque Luminous Foundation in shade 02 was perfect and after applying it with the Japonesque Pro Foundation brush I had a flawless face in about a minute! The Luminous Foundation just glides on and doesn't tug your skin when using the brush it dispenses it evening all over your face for a flawless finish! My foundation never looked better. I didn't feel dry and it did not irritate my sensitive skin and after a long 10 hour day my makeup looked great! The Japonesque Luminous Foundaiton didn't crease or settle into fine lines at all! It is available in 10 shades so find your perfect match today @ http://japonesque.com/color-cosmetics/face/luminous-foundation

I am in LOVE with the Japonesque brand and I am giving it A 5 $$$$$ BOTH THE CONCEALER & LUMINOUS FOUNDATION ALONG WITH THE PRO FOUNDATION & PRO CONCEALER BRUSHES  FROM JAPONESQUE FOR THEIR ABILITY TO MAKE YOUR FACE FLAWLESS IN JUST TWO MINUTES. THE APPLICATION IS EASY AND GLIDES ON! DOES NOT DRY OUT OR IRRITATE SENSITIVE SKIN IT IS THE BEST CONCEALER & FOUNDATION I HAVE USED IN A WHILE! I DIDNT THINK A LIQUID FOUNDATION COULD FEEL SO LIGHT BUT THIS ONE FROM JAPONSEQUE IS AND ITS A STAPLE IN MY BEAUTY BAG!

Today I am bringing you a review of a IT Cosmetics product that I bought on a whim because I was frustrated with trying to conceal my acne scars and under eye circles! Finding the right concealer is struggle because I want it to not only conceal my imperfections but I want it to last and be good for my skin! IT Cosmetics has managed to do all of that and more! I have finally found that special something that covers every imperfection like dark spots/sunspots, age spots, acne, dark circles, hyperpigmentation, birthmarks, acne scaring, scars even rosacea whatever ails you! We are all different and at one time or another we have had something that we feel we need to cover. I want all of us to feel confident when going out or just looking in the mirror at our selves and for me if a little beauty bag trick can do that I am going to find it! In fact IT Cosmetics is that beauty bag trick we all need!

This is my tube of IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye in the Neutral Medium Shade and it is a staple in my Beauty Bag! You will not want to be without IT! I have been using it for over a month now!


IT Cosmetics says that it is 8 hours in a tube and by all means it really is! Just a little dab with completely cover dark circles. This concealer is anti-aging , water proof,  contains Hydro-Collagen, Vitamins C & K.  I also love the fact that this concealer never settled into my fine lines and wrinkles but most importantly my acne scars and  redness never showed through! After applying my makeup at 6AM I could look in the mirror after work at 6PM and it look perfect! Not a crease in site! It also never felt drying!

I LOVE the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and I give it a 5 $$$$$ FOR ITS ABILITY TO CONCEAL ANY IMPERFECTION INSTATLY JUST DABBING A LITTLE BIT ON WITH YOUR FINGER OR CONCEALER BRUSH! THIS IS WATERPROOF AND SWEAT PROOF! I FEEL AS THOUGH THIS HAS IMPROVED THE LOOK OF MY ACNE SCARS AND UNDER EYE DARK CIRCLES! IT IS A BEAUTY BAG DOLL MUST HAVE!

I love this skincare line! All MUST HAVES and in my Beauty Bag!

The first product I was super excited to try out and let all of you know about its the Mineral Fusion Limitless Beauty Cream. This beauty cream is amazing! It smells so good and it is used for multiple area's on your face and body! You can use it on your lips, eye brows, a face luminizer, cuticle cream or to restore dry elbows and heals! This is so good! I cannot say enough about it. I have a very dry nose that gets red and flakey but after just 3 days of using this at night it made a complete turn around! In fact I wanted to keep the effects of it up so I applied before makeup and had no issues applying the makeup afterward. A little goes a long way and I even began putting some on my knuckles at night! The Mineral Fusion Limitless Beauty Cream is made with coconut oil and is hypo-allergenic and 100% Vegan! It truly restores your skin from head to toe! Find yours @  http://mineralfusion.com/index.php/shop/skin-care/new-treat/limitless-beauty-cream

Another wonderful product I received complimentary from Mineral Fusion is there Age-Defying Treatment Serum with SPF 16, which is AMAZING! It is concentrated blend of revitalizing minerals and dual peptides to firm and lift the skin. I used this every morning after cleansing and before applying my makeup. It feels amazing, absorbs quickly and really did smooth out my fine lines after about a week of daily use. I noticed that my concealer and foundation didn't settle into the fine lines as much. This is for all skin types and is 100% Vegan, Gluten Free and Hypo-Allergenic. I did not have any sensitivity and I am thrilled that it had the added benefit of SPF 16 in a serum. I love that this is lightweight and feels great all while working to keep my skin looking younger.

I just must say the next product Mineral Fusion sent me is so important not only now but all year round it is MOISTURIZER with SPF 15! This one of course is extra special because it is the Mineral Fusion SPF 15 Brightening Moisturizer with restoring vitamin C. Mineral Fusion includes "vitamin C and orange oil naturally brighten and restore even tone, while light-reflecting mica gives skin a subtle glow." They also include a "nutrient-replenishing mineral water and coconut oil provide lightweight moisture that leaves skin feeling soft and supple." After just a few days of using this moisturizer I noticed how soft and supple my skin did get and  it had glow to it as if I applied highlighter only I didn't on the weekends by using this AMAZING moisturizer it made makeup optional for me because it gives a subtle glow that make you look lit from within! I recommend this for everyone it protects and gives amazing moisturizing benefits! My nose is less flakey and my cheeks are no longer dry and tiered looking! Get your Mineral Fusion SPF 15 Brightening Moisturizer today @ http://mineralfusion.com/index.php/shop/skin-care/moisturize/spf-15-brightening-moisturizer

The final product I got was the Mineral Fusion Revitalizing Eye Treatment that deeply moisturizes the with duel peptides and botanicals to rejuvenate skin brighten your eyes and repair wrinkles. The Revitalizing Eye Treatment "plumps, hydrates, and helps smooth fine lines around the delicate eye   area with hyaluronic acid and rosehip oil." I personally applied this every night and every morning I had very hydrated and plump eye area! It made my eye makeup apply easier and look great overall!
