It Cosmetics Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe 6-Piece Brush Set w/ Travel Case

OMG #BeautyBagDolls and #ITGirls I have an amzing review coming at you. A few weeks ago It Cosmetics had their Friends & Family sale and I went a shopping spree. I only bought a little bit of everything and I have to share with you my review of the It Cosmetics Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe 6-Piece Brush Set w/ Travel Case Let me first start by telling you just because the word travel is in the name of these brushes they are still amazing full size It Cosmetics brushes and they are fabulous, high end, soft and luxurious brushes. The It Cosmetics brand has quickly become one of my favorites and their makeup dominates my makeup bag and now that I have come to learn more and more about the brand over the past few years their brushes do dominate my makeup bag as well.
These It Cosmetics Luxe Brush Set is a must have!
*NOTE: JOIN the ITGirl Superhero team for It Cosmetics here @ http://sot.ag/4QqgY you will earn points for prizes from It Cosmetics.*
When they arrived in the beautiful travel case I was floored. It looked and felt so much like leather I was thrilled that it was not since they are a cruelty free company so the faux leather design is on point with who they are. The travel case is a perfect size and it also stands alone to display your six beautiful brushes. I put all brushes I review to a true test, using them for upward of two weeks and washing them each week. For me I knew it was love at first makeup application they apply your powder and liquid foundations with ease as well as the concealer brush giving you nice even precise application. The two eye shadow brushes never tug at the delicate eye area. I washed these brushes and they were like new again. They did not fray at the edges and were perfectly dry over night. Always lay them flat of course. In this It Cosmetics Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe 6-Piece Brush Set w/ Travel Case you get the Multi-Powder Brush: Luxuriously soft, dome-shaped brush picks up and applies the perfect amount of powder, blush and bronzer to larger areas of your face/ the Foundation Brush: Flat, tapered paddle brush buffs and blends your favorite liquid and cream foundations/ the Concealer Brush: Small brush with firm, tapered bristles precisely applies your favorite liquid and cream concealers onto targeted areas/ the No-Tug Crease Brush: Narrow, tapered brush fits perfectly in the crease of your eye for effortless application of your favorite cream and powder shadows/ the No-Tug All-Over Eyeshadow Brush: Short, densely packed brush provides a smooth application of your favorite cream and powder eyeshadows without tugging on your delicate eyelid area and finally the No-Tug Eyeliner & Brow Brush: Dual-ended brush applies your favorite cream and gel eyeliners and brow products for gorgeous, eye-defining results.

This is such a beauty bag must that my words cannot even begin to express how important it is to have these in your makeup brush arsenal! I mean these are not only for travel I use these I a daily basis when applying my makeup and It Brushes are by far the best in the game and the It Cosmetics Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe 6-Piece Brush Set w/ Travel Case are 5 $$$$$ for their ability to apply you makeup in a type of ease that makes applying your makeup quick and efficient. They travel with you in their beautiful travel case and they hold up to washing without fraying. Do not that these are  limited edition and an online exclusive at It Cosmetics website.

EXTRA LOVE From Anna: I love  It Cosmetics! I love that they now have for a limited time these limited edition It Cosmetics Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe 6-Piece Brush Set w/ Travel Case to give a gift to ourselves and to gift a friend or family member the gift of the perfect beauty tool.

Well Philosophy fans QVC is doing it again! They are going to have a Today's Special Value featuring philosophy 3-piece mega-size layering set will be featured at one day only low price on December 3, 2016 at 12AM I know your wondering about what exactly is in this TSV and how much. It will  cost you $88.95 and free shipping and handling. Item number A287510




1) 16 fl oz whipped body creme,
(1) 64 fl oz shampoo, bath and shower gel,
(1) 4 fl oz eau de parfum

Your scent choices are:
amazing grace, pure grace, falling in love, or unconditional love

I am leaning toward falling in love and amazing grace however I looked at everything I already have and I may not buy this set at all. I have found that the body crème is just not as hydrating as other brands I love but the deal is there and the shampoo/bath and shower gel and the parfum is amazing so I am on the fence at this point I will keep you posted with a review if I do purchase this. However, for the philosophy lovers this is the deal to stock up or if your new its a great way to try it out. It's all up to you #BeautyBagDolls what are you thinking? Share your thoughts and happy shopping!

Hello to all of my #BeautyBagDolls today I am over the moon to bring you a review of a Sephora limited edition brand new for the holiday season Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Collection this is a 7 piece kit that gives you 6 scented body butters and 1 unscented. They are each 2 ounces which is the perfect travel size and you get 7 of them. Let me tell you this tub of body butter is filled to the brim and it is so luxurious you will never want to be without them! For only $45.00 but an $84.00 value you will want to buy these for all of your friends and I am telling you guys loves these too.
This limited edition body butter collection from Sephora is a beauty bag must have. Break them up or keep them all, its your choice. This is a beauty gift hit!

They all have a light fragrance that does not over power or overwhelm you even if you are sensitive to scent (which I am and not one of these gave me a headache) I recently reviewed the Josie Maran Warm Apple Cider Whipped Argan Oil Body Collection and I didn't think anything could even compare but the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter 7 Piece Collection does compare and is equally amazing. It is made with 100 percent pure argan oil and is spun into this lux whipped body butter that is perfect for that dry skin all over your body from neck to toes. No matter which scent you choose to use for the day it will make you smile and the argan oil body butter will relieve any dry or itchy skin issue you may have. When your getting 7 of these little tubs you can indulge in keeping one in the bathroom, one at your bed side, one in living room, one in your purse, desk drawer, one for a loved one and one for your best friend.  This is packaged beautifully to give a one nice gift to friends and family or divide them up as stocking stuffers and don't forget yourself this holiday season!  This is a 5 $$$$$ not only based on value for what you get for the price but the scents are so luxurious for fall and winter. Never over powering just very subtle hints that leave your skin feeling soft, hydrated and so velvety nice! I have official said good bye to dry skin and I keep the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Collection in my beauty bag at all times! Remember these are also formulated without sulfates, parabens and are cruelty free.
I love the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter each scent is subtle and wonderful but the hydration is serious and luxurious and beauty bag must!

New Beauty TestTube 2.0 November 2016

#BeautyBagDolls I have awesome news the New Beauty TestTube 2.0 has arrived. I have been using everything in this revamped tube for a while now and let me tell you they have outdone themselves this time. No more are the days where a pink box arrives at your doorstep with a tube inside of it. Now a box arrives (that is also revamped) and it packed with 14 awesome products inside but without a tube the box is kind of shaped into a tube. I don't mind either way of packaging the New Beauty TestTube what I care about is the contents and this had a lot of great products. Shop for your Tube now here.
This November 2016 New Beauty TestTube 2.0 is packed with amazing product for you to try and they will become your new Beauty Bag Must haves!

Included in this TestTube is the bliss Triple oxygen instant energizing foaming mask that feels so great on you skin and leaves it glowing in just 5 minutes. I love a mask that is quick that I can even do in the morning before leaving for work. Next, was the Chi Rose Hip Oil Color Nurture Repair & Shine Leave-In Tonic and this is an amazing leave in treatment for your hair and mine is really dry so this truly added moisture and shine. I also love that I can spritz some in mid day just to add shine. The third product was The Seaweed Bath Co Detox Cellulite Soap which is an exfoliating Arabica coffee. The is a giant bar of soap and boy does it feel great on my skin. The exfoliating beads are amazing they don't feel rough they just feel nice like they at really working gently to help stimulate circulation and collagen production while making you skin look smooth and healthy. It also smells really nice. After stepping out of the shower I now grab for my sample of Sonoran Skincare Avocado and Hazelnut Hydrating Hair and Skin Conditioner. This is a unique product that is good for both your hair and skin. Personally I slathered it all over my body and put some in on the ends of my hair that are very dry. My skin drank it in and it seemed to just melt right in leaving it feeling like silk. The next product in the TestTube was the Beauty & Pin-Ups Fearless Hair Rescue Treatment which is so easy to use even though at first I was like what?! Not to worry everything you need is included in the packet. All you need to do is follow the direction and apply this hair treatment to shampooed towel dried hair, cover with a the enclosed hair cap and relax for 5 minutes. Rinse out and style as usual. Oh my! My hair felt so much better after using it truly hydrated after just this one treatment!

Now comes the sixth product and I am not even half way through the TestTube! HairMax for density was in here and I was very impressed because it was a treatment for your hair that is designed to grow thicker, younger looking strands by refreshing the scalp. I use a lot of hair treatments but they never really focus on the scalp until now and this felt really nice to clear the scalp of everything and let it truly breath. My skin has been dry and I know as the season continues it will get worse but the June Jacobs Mandarin Moisture Masque is truly a super dose of hydration and you just smooth on a fruit scented mask that is in a gel form onto your skin wait 10 minutes and then just let your skin drink in the moisture because after you rinse this off it absolutely feels amazing and hydrated! Now onto your body ever feel like your stressed and your muscles are just so sore. I feel like that at least once or twice a week and their is no better way to relax your muscles than with a bath with the bath salts from Soaptopia Relief Fund Salt Soak Bath Salts this is a Eucalyptus & Tea Tree scent that is absolutely relaxing in itself I mean it smells so nice in the tub and really does clear your mind and by the time a 20 minute bath goes by and you come out you really won't feel those achy muscles! This next goodie is the Manna Kadar Cosmetics Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlighter duo this little compact fits in any size makeup bag or clutch which makes it a must to take with you on the go because I say their is no reason not to contour. This is full of great pigment and makes you look glowing and I use the highlight shade below and above my eye brows to give me a lifted look.

The tenth product is the Miss Spa Bamboo Charcoal Clarifying Mask and I love masks and more recently sheet masks have become my go to must have but to have charcoal mask in a sheet form is so amazing. It not only clarifies and detoxes my skin in 20 minutes it also didn't leave a big mess in my bathroom this is a genius idea and I now have glowing skin that is brighter than ever. This next product is something I don't think I have ever gotten in a beauty sampling program but leave it to New Beauty TestTube 2.0 to really marry beauty with fashion. The Bonus gift is the Lisa Hoffman Fragrance Bracelet ( I have one of these) now I have two and the fragrance in the fragrance bracelet is Brazilian Begonia-which smells absolutely amazing and by including a bracelet that hold the fragrance beads is an absolute genius way to wear your fragrance. It is never over powering and stays with you with out actually being all over you. Next is the CBD For Life Lip Balm. I love lip balms and I finally found one that felt really nice on my lips. It didn't dry them out in fact it actually left them hydrated and soft. Jane Iredal Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener is something I have used in the past and I am glad to have been reintroduced to it. This primer truly did blur my pores and helped mattify my combination skin for a very even makeup application. Finally the last product in the New Beauty TestTube 2.0 for November 2016  is the Osmosis Skincare Mascara. This mascara is  really nice an curls your lashes for you so don't worry about an eye lash curler instead just one coat of this mascara did the trick to have beautiful curled lashes in one coat and two coats really brought them to the next level.

Josie Maran Warm Apple Cider Argan Oil Body Collection

#BeautyBagDolls  I know that holiday shopping season is in full swing and if your worried about what to gift someone than look no further than my blog full of beauty gifts to give and get. I love Josie Maran products and Sephora has some very special packaged gift sets for you this holiday season. I recently received two Josie Maran gift set to review for you and I will start with the  Josie Maran Warm Apple Cider Argan Oil Body Collection This is a brand new, limited edition and exclusive trio to Sephora.
This comes beautifully packaged and ready to wrap up for the holidays. A beauty bag must for you and yours!

In this body collection is an 4.4 ounce Argan Sugar Balm Body Scrub in Sweet Apple Cider, 2 ounce Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Sweet Apple Cider and 8 ounce  Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Sweet Apple Cider. These are all formulated without parabens, sulfates, gluten and synthetic fragrances. They are also made with organic argan oil, are vegan and cruelty free. This is the perfect gift to give or get for yourself if you have any skin sensitivity. The Argan Sugar Balm Body Scrub smells amazing but for a scrub it is so gentle and effective in making your skin feel clean and revitalized. It has pure argan oil, coconut oil and shea butter to hydrate your skin as the sugar crystals gently polish and buff away dead skin cells. I use this at least 2 or 3 times a week and follow up with the  8 ounce  Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Sweet Apple Cider in this gift set because these two are the perfect combination to soft, supple, hydrated and glowing skin. I have issues all year round with dry skin but in the fall and winter it is almost unbearable until the combination of Argan Sugar Balm Scrub and Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter came into my life. They both are so amazing in hydrating and polishing my skin to perfection. I use it from my neck to my toes and in this kit you get the 2 ounce Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Sweet Apple Cider which is the perfect travel size to take with you in your beauty bag. I take this out at work and just butter my hands and cuticles up just to banish that dry hand feeling after washing your hands.

This is a soft and silky argan oil body butter formula that will make your skin soft and hydrated!


With this as an option to gift a friend or loved one you are defiantly going to be their favorite person. it is a $39.00 price take valued at $65.00 and if you want you can put the 8 ounce body butter and scrub in a gift bag and keep the 2 ounce body butter for yourself (just an idea). No matter how you decided to gift this it something you will love to give or get. This is a 5 $$$$$ not only based on value for what you get for the low price but the scent is so delicious for fall and winter. It is not over powering just very subtle hint of warm apple cider that leave your skin feeling soft, hydrated and so velvety nice! I have official said good bye to dry skin and I keep the Josie Maran Warm Apple Cider Argan Oil Body Collection in my beauty bag at all times!

EXTRA LOVE From Anna: I love Josie Maran! I love how Sephora carries extra special limited edtion exclusives for argan oil lovers to give and get at the holiday season.
