Grande Lips

Aloha #BeautyBagDolls I have a great lip product review for all of you today. This is new from the Grande Lips Nude Collection. It is now available at Sephora.com and I cannot wait for all of you to try it out. I love a good lip product but one that hydrates while it plumps your lips is a must have for me!
Grande Lips is the perfect lip plumping product with great shades to choose from.

Grande Lips is Infused with Volulip and hyaluronic acid, Grande Lips is a hydrating lip plumper instantly and it improves lip volume in three to five minutes, adding a pop of lip-boosting color while hydrating dry areas. The shades it comes in are all amazing which makes it hard to choose. I received the shade Sunbaked Sedona which is a brown mauve shade and I love it! I am partial to pink and brown shades of lip gloss. The applicator is a cushion and easy to clean. Grande Lips  its clinically proven formula increases overall lip hydration, volume, softness, and firmness  which I experienced and I am thrilled! I only used this twice daily and my lips looked so full I could not be happier! This is 5 $$$$$ lip plumping product!

Visit Sephora to purchase.

It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette

#BeautyBagDolls & #ITGirls I have a review for you today that really makes me happy. It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette is amazing. It has everything you need to create a radiant healthy glow in one convenient palette. It Cosmetics is my favorite brand and when my favorite brand put everything I need in one palette it only makes things better because I get to carry less items with me. This palette has matte blush and matte bronzer both which I love in their individual compacts however the product that was new to me was the Color Correcting Brightening Powder and I am impressed. Let me get into my review for you.

JOIN the ITGirl Superhero team for It Cosmetics here @ http://sot.ag/4QqgY you will earn points for prizes from It Cosmetics.

The It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette is a beauty bag must along with the Heavenly Skin 701 Brush for application perfection!

The  CC+ Radiance Palette is described as follows;  "infused with anti-aging ingredients and is formulated to do the work for you. CC+ Radiance Palette is talc-free and infused with anti-aging skin loving ingredients plus color correction technology to brighten and correct the appearance of your skin for your most beautiful skin ever." Let me tell you the description truly tells you what it does. When I grabbed a brush and applied the Color Correcting Brightening Powder my skin glowed and that was on the days I only wore the powder with the blush and bronzer on days that I wore it on top of my favorite It Cosmetics foundation (I go between Celebration Foundation, Confidence In a Compact and Cushion Compact depending on what coverage I want or need that day) I look like a flawless goddess! I mean if I wear it also I look like my imprefections are blurred and if I layer it I can say what imperfections and when I add a pop of Blush which is a stain that comes in the shade Love it gives me a healthy glow and the bronzer is perfect because it is not orange or muddy it is just a true sun kissed glow. (Click the links to read my reviews). It Cosmetics has truly paired my fan favorites and my favorite blush and bronzer with an amazing powder that truly corrects! The CC+ Brightening Finishing Powder is something you just dust all over your face and décolleté to color correct your complexion and give the look of healthy, glowing, younger-looking skin. You can wear it be on bare skin or over the top of your makeup as your finishing step. The It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette is a 5 $$$$$ palette it travels well giving you three of your must have products to give you a flawless glowing complexion and you can take it with you. You must try this #ITGirls if you have not I am addicted and repurchasing it as soon as I see the pan. I want it to be sold in its own compact if at all possible. To apply this just grab your favorite It Brush for this particular palette I grab my. Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder 701 brush. ( included in photo graph and previous reviewed here)

Extra Love From Anna: This is such an AMAZING line of cosmetics! I am in love with the It Cosmetics and their superior product products. This is not the last of the It Cosmetics beauty products that I will review for you! I bought a few other goodies and my reviews are coming soon! The It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette is a beauty bag must!

Soap Cherie Soaps

Well #BeautyBagDolls Soap Cherie has done it again! My skin is so very happy since I have been using there amazing soaps. These soaps are handmade SLS and Paraben free and made in a wide variety of scents. No matter which scent you choose the ingredient list is so good for you. There is coconut oil, soybean oil and organic shea butter. The other ingredients depend on the scent and what the bar of soap is intended for. I received the Oatmeal Milk and Honey as well as the Seaweed. I am in love each of these bars of soap because their ingredient deck are words you can actually pronounce and they work amazingly at cleansing your skin without leaving it feel dry or tight. My skin feels clean but hydrated and nourished. The Soap Cherie Oatmeal Milk and Honey lathers up beautifully with warm water of course and feels amazing on the skin. The scent is perfect not over powering!  I adore it because it also gently exfoliates with the little oats you see in the bar of soap. The Soap Cherie  Seaweed is a great bar of soap the scent is very bright and it is a bar you can use all over your face and body. It helps to detoxify which is something I love without having to do an extra step in the shower with another product. This is run under water and lather up! I love how the Seaweed soap bar left my skin clean and nourished.
My happiness are these soaps from Soap Cherie they cleanses moisturize and smell great! A Beauty Bag must!

Now I also received something from the Soap Cherie Bakery. That's right they have an amazing variety of soaps that are crafted to look like a cupcake!  That's right a cupcake however do not let its adorable aspect fool you it is a soap bar like the ones I mentioned above! It cleans and hydrates your skin while doing it with good for you and your skin ingredients. The formula includes organic Shea butter, hempseed oil, castor oil, olive oil, and coconut oil. The Soap Cherie Bakery Cupcakes are suitable for all skin types. These are a beautiful treat to use and to gift it makes me smile every time I see it and use it. It is available in wide variety of scents as well for you to enjoy!

Finally, if your like me you love a nice long bath and I have now experienced the Soap Cherie Bath Bomb this little ball of goodness is so amazing. It is available in a wide variety of scents on the Soap Cherie website and I received the Rose Garden scent and when you get this you will see how large and weighty it is. You will also notice how nicely scented it is before its dropped into a bath tub full of water! This little guy arrived at my home on a day that mother nature dumped a large amount of snow and after removing that from the sidewalk and driveway I wanted nothing more than to soak my cold body in a warm tub of water lucky this arrived on the same day and I could do just that!  I filled the tub up with water first as suggested and dropped this cutie into the water and watched it dissolve I don't want to ruin the show it puts on for you but trust me its AWESOME! This is a handmade bath fizz that has bath salts and butters inside of it for you to just relax yourself in a bath tub full of it. It leaves your skin feeling soft, silky and hydrated. It also leaves you feeling really relaxed and if you have had a workout that left you feeling sore the bath salts help ease any aches and pains. The exact ingredients are Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Shea Butter, Epsom salt and herbal mix. I love this little bath fizz and I am going to be a frequent user.

Overall the Soap Cherie products mentioned in my review above are a 5 $$$$$ for their ability to cleanse, nourish and hydrate my skin with good for you ingredients. I love this brand so much and what it has done for my skin makes me so happy!

Daily Concepts Bodycare

Hello to all of my #BeautyBagDolls I am thrilled today to be bringing you a review from a brand I have indeed reviewed in the past. They are an amazing brand called Daily Concepts. They special in everything you need in the shower. They sent me two product for review. The new Your Mesh Sponge and the Exfoliating Body Scrubber with Smart Technology. To purchase yours visit here.
These two Daily Concept body products are must have!

So if your like me you love a good mesh sponge when your in the shower. There is nothing better than pouring your favorite body wash into it and suds up but lately all of the mesh sponges our there are puny and in all honesty they fall apart or just look plain gross after a week or two! Not anymore the Daily Concepts Your Mesh Sponge With Smart Technology  is the complete opposite. It is nice size mesh sponge and it has smart label technology with indicator that fades when it’s time to replace Your Body Mesh Sponge. Another awesome aspect of this mesh sponge is that Anti-microbial treated. It is an awesome mesh sponge I love it. You have to experience it for yourself. This is without a doubt a 5 $$$$$ Mesh Sponge. A Beauty Bag must!

The other product is the amazing Daily Concepts Exfoliating Body Scrubber With Smart Technology.  I love exfoliating because in all honesty its necessary for us to do so, in order for our body lotions to actually work. The Exfoliating Body Scrubber is perfect because you don't need any extra scrub in the shower just use your body wash or soap and then massage this all over your body it gently exfoliates your skin and its as easy as that! Made with natural cotton base layer with nylon exfoliating loops for the ideal texture. I also am grateful for the Label with indicator that fades when it’s time to replace Your Body Scrubber. This makes it convenient you never have to guess when you replace your scrubber it tells you when its had enough and its time to replace! Another 5 $$$$$ product from Daily Concepts! Another Beauty Bag must from Daily Concepts.

Soap Cherie Body Lotion

#BeautyBagDolls I am really excited to introduce to you my new favorite body lotion. It comes from this amazing company called Soap Cherie. They sent me a beautiful package full of goodies for me to review and I will have reviews for you of the other goodies coming soon but I had to start with the Soap Cherie Body Lotion in the Coconut Lime Scent.  Fist of all I am need of body lotion, this winter is making my skin so dry and itchy it seems impossible to get it moisturized just enough. I am reapplying lotion around two times a day now and its annoying when you need to reapply mid day until now!
The lightweight texture and quick absorption makes this a must have body lotion! The scent is amazing as well!

Soap Cherie has changed my body lotion routine! I use this each day when I get out of the shower and it absorbs so fast and it is very light weight. It smells like a dream I mean they combined coconut which is my favorite with lime which is another favorite citrus scent of mine in one glorious tub of body lotion. I only have to use this once a day because the miniaturization lasts and the scent lasts too even hours later I can smell it on myself. With ingredients based on a blend of oils, including borage seed oil and jojoba seed oil, and is made with minerals of the Dead Sea. The formula is also  Paraben and SLS free as well as being vegan and cruelty free.

This is a $$$$$ body lotion! It has left my skin silky and soft! I never have to reapply and my dry itchy winter skin is now just a memory! I cannot get enough of this body lotion from Soap Cherie and I will have more reviews coming soon of their amazing products. A Beauty Bag must for all my #BeautyBagDolls

SPONGELLE Body Wash Infused Buffers

#BeautyBagDolls I have some amazing skin loving beauty products for review today! It comes from a really cool brand SPONGELLE they took body sponges to the next level good! I mean these sponges are good for 14 plus uses and they are infused with gel so they are your body was and buffer all in one! It will cleanse and exfoliate you from head to toe. The Spongelle comes in several scents and forms and is packaged perfectly for gifting. To learn more or purchase visit SPONGELLE.

Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffers are a dream come true and a beauty bag must in every shower!

I am so in love with this I mean I want to sing its praises! It is a genius invention and a great design. I received the SPONGELLE in Coconut Verbena and French Lavender which is good for 14 plus washes and a SPONGELLE Freesia Pear. They all smell wonderful and other scents are available for you to choose. It is also awesome that Spongelle offers Auto Replenish which saves you 10% and you can choose how many you want delivered to your door each week, month or year. You don't ever have to worry about running out. I am so thrilled with how creamy and rich this lather is each and every time. It surprises me because always think its impossible for it to have that much lather each time I use but it does. It also leaves your skin feeling clean but not tight or dried out. You can also exfoliate your skin without have to switch to another product just use this amazing sponge. The Spongelle Freesia Pear is a limited edition sponge that is not in a flower shape like the others it is round shape which I also love and I prefer to use that when taking a bubble bath and when I want to buff my knees, elbows and feet this one is a great size to do this with in the bath.  The scent is amazing and I love Spongelle so much. My skin is left soft and silky yet its clean and so convenient to have you cleanser built right into you sponge which cleanses, buffs and exfoliates your skin in one easy step.  For all the reasons mentioned this is a 5 $$$$$ for it ability to make showering so much fun in all honesty! To see this hanging in the shower and knowing it will suds up each time to perfection and help you get in and out when in a hurry I will not live without it!

There were 4 Artisan Bar Soaps, 1 Large 16 oz Alotta Bubbles Bubble Bath, 1 Radiant Tone Skin Spritzer and 1 Heart-Shaped Pumice Stone. The four bars of Artisan soap each smelled wonderful from Rozilla vs. Dryskinea which as Rose Geranium and Vanilla to the Red Hot Lover which had Cinnamon and Clove. Then there was Chocolate Makes Me Thorny which you guessed it has Coco, Rose Geranium and Vanilla to Orange you glad, Honey. Where does a girl start?! I tested each of these and I thought each one could be better than the other. The scents are out of this world amazing but each and everyone of them are my favorite.

GrandeBROW Fill

#BeautyBagDolls I am thrilled to be bringing you an amazing brow product that not only fills in your eye brows but it conditions them with peptides! It is the GrandeBROW fill.
Just swipe this over your brows to build and fill them! Beauty Bag must!

I have been using this for a while now and I love it! It is a  tinted brush-on gel made with fibers and peptides. The gel adheres to even the finest hairs, leaving them fuller and more defined with a single application. This helps to shape and build your brows leaving them looking natural, while filling in thinning areas. Available in Light & Dark Shades. I am currently using the Light Shade. I do love that this shapes my brows and helps build brow hairs where they are a little more sparse from tweezing. The wand on the GrandeBROW fill is also a great size not to large like some and it looks like a mascara brush but smaller of course to help you get each little eye brow hair you have. I am thrilled with this product and it get a 5 $$$$$ from me in all honesty I haven't used anything else since I received this a beauty bag must.
