It Cosmetics Confidence In An Eye Cream

#BeautyBagDolls  I have such a special treat for you today! I am lucky enough to be brining you a review of a brand new product from It Cosmetics. They recently launched a new eye cream called Confidence In An Eye Cream which sounds like a spin off from their amazing moisturizer Confidence In A Cream (click link to read full review) and now together you have an awesome skincare routine from It Cosmetics. I am thrilled with my results from using Confidence In An Eye Cream and with ingredients like "apricot tint and Drops of Light Technology visibly color-correct and brighten, proprietary Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate and other high-performance skin-loving ingredients—including a super ceramide complex, chrysin, licorice root, avocado and squalane—work to hydrate, smooth and refresh." These ingredients are working my eye area and making me really happy with my results.
It Cosmetics Confidence In An Eye Cream is a beauty bag must for me!

I started using this the same day it arrived and I use it twice a day, which meant I stopped using my beloved It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream (click link for full review) for the time being. Each morning and night I dabbed this around my entire eye area and I was very happy that it did not irritate my sensitive eye area even when my eye lashes picked it up I never had any irritation which of course is a must when I use an eye cream. You will also immediately notice that the cream has an apricot color to it, not to worry this will not affect your makeup application or the shade of the makeup you apply around your eye area. The only the apricot shade of this eye cream does is helps to color correct your eye area and for me it does wonders for my actual eye lids. I have some discoloration now while it is not terrible it is noticeable and it has begun happening to me over the past few years as I have gotten older. Of course when you put eyelid primers on it helps to mask it but it does not treat the area until now with Confidence In An Eye Cream. While It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream has helped me with my under eye dark circles Confidence In An Eye Cream has now helped me with the darkness on my eye lids and my puffiness has been reduced. I noticed the puffiness was under control in about 3 days of using twice daily while the darkness (tea bag staining is what I call it) on my eye lids were transformed in about a week of using twice daily. You feel  the hydration immediately upon application and it absorbs quickly so in the morning you can move on from skincare to makeup application. I would have to say that by day 12 the fines lines were smoothed out and my eye area was brightened up. I also want to mention that my eye area at time gets very dry in fact my eye lids sometimes flakes and I tried all different kinds of eye cream to hydrate and get this dry eyelid issue under control nothing helped but It Cosmetics Confidence In An Eye Cream, since using this I have not had dry flaky eye lids and my eye shadows go on with ease. The It Cosmetics Confidence In An Eye Cream is a beauty bag staple and I am giving it 5 $$$$$ along with EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Wildbloom Skincare: Body & Hands

#BeautyBagDolls today is a great day because I am going to be reviewing for you two amazing products that you must pick up for yourselves and for a loved one like for your Mom for Mothers Days or for anyone who has touched you in a special way in your life. I am bringing you two reviews of Wildbloom Skincare products for your body and hands. I have reviewed this brand recently and I am in love them and these two product that I am reviewing for you today has made me fall even more in love. The Wildbloom  Replenishing Skin Therapy Balm and Wildbloom Garden Grown Hand Therapy.
These two Wildbloom Skincare products for the body and hands make me so happy! I have share this with everyone, its such a beauty bag must have!

Its no secret that I have dry skin and sometimes its worse than other times. Right now I have very dry feet and nothing has really been helping until now. The Wildboom Replenish Skin Therapy Balm is the only thing that I have been using since I received it. This is good to use from head to toe so if you have a spot on your face that is always dry by all means go for it sometime my forehead is dry and I apply a little bit of this and the dry flakey skin is no more. My feet are looking and feeling perfect and with flip flop open toe shoe season here I am thrilled to have this balm in my beauty bag I suggest you grab this for your Mom to give as a gift for Mothers day. The ingredient deck is stacked with Organic Shea Butter for rich hydration and Lavender Flower Oil for soothing and regeneration. I am just so amazing at how quickly this went to work, it absorbed into my dry skin and when I woke up the next morning my feet were so soft and supple. After three days of use the dry chapped heels were like new again and I didn't need to hide my feet. I also want to note that this smells amazing, the scent is addicting I honestly could not stop smelling the jar the lavender scent really just made me so happy! To buy this for your or a loved one click here.

Now that Wildboom Skincare has taken care of your body they also have the most lux hand cream I have used in a long time. The  Wildbloom Garden Grown Hand Therapy is a super rich botanical hand cream and it truly hydrates my dry hands. When I read the ingredient list I was thrilled to learn that it has Organic Coconut Oil for deep hydration, Myristic Acid for anti-aging, Indian Lilac Seed Oil and Sunflower Oil for skin soothing and lipid repair, plus pure Rose Flower Water for skin healing. All of this made sense because after just one weekend of using this twice daily my hands were soft and supple and my cuticles didn't look wrecked at all! I was so pleased with how quickly this absorbed and is smelled so wonderful like roses from my summer garden! I use this each morning and each night and my hands thanked me for it by not being dry or cracked instead they were silky soft. I am loving the way this is packaged like a serum for face as well. This is a gift to give and get this Mothers Day and to just give someone you love who has tiered dry hands. Buy yours now here.

Both the Wildbloom Replenishing Skin Therapy Balm and Wildbloom Garden Grown Hand Therapy products are a Beauty Bag Must no question about that. They transform your skin from dry to hydrated instantly and over time make your skin so soft and silky smooth. For all those reasons and the ones listed in my review this is a 5 $$$$$ and something you need to share with Mom this Mothers Day or with someone you love.

OPI Infinite Shine Iconic Shades Collection

So #BeautyBagDolls my love affair of the OPI Infinite Shine nail lacquer continues but now I  received four beautiful shades from the Iconic collection called Sweet Heart, (which is a light shade of soft pink, I call this one my neutral)  OPI by Popular Vote, (this is a nice shade from the red family described as cool apple red) Can't Find My Czechbook (this is a perfect spring shade of  a aqua blue) and Shorts Story (this is a great shade of  hot pink that I of course wanted to try first since pinks are my favorite). To find these shades and more visit OPI.

Four OPI Infinite Shine Iconic Shades that are beauty bag musts!


Now I fought my urge to immediately apply the shade OPI Shorts Story I am getting better at not just immediately gravitating toward pinks that includes my obsession with lip colors and nails colors, although with nail colors I have always used anything from neutrals to pops of colors. When I decided which shade to use first I thought ahead of what I was doing and I had a weekend planed with friends so I went for a pop of color and applied Can't Find My Czechbook which is the aqua blue shade and  I had no regrets. This color is a beautiful fun shade of blue that was fun yet looks like a professional did it. I am also excited to tell all of you that this Infinite Shine line from OPI truly lasts days I mean it was a week later and my nail polish was holding on strong I used no top coat and this did not chip and I did not baby it either. I lived my life working and going out with friends. The shine truly lasts until you take it off with any type of nail polish remover so I am thrilled (I have had a polish in my day that would not come off). This is the best gel manicure you can get and its an at home one which makes it even better! This a 5 $$$$$ and no doubt this gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blush

As a fan of It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blush in Naturally Pretty I was thrilled to get the newest shade Je Ne Sais Quoi. As soon as I opened the compact #BeautyBagDolls I was in love. It is a light pink that is perfect for spring time. The formula in this  Bye Bye Pores Blush is "infused with optical blurring pigments! This game-changing, one-of-a-kind powder blush delivers sheer, buildable color and contains proprietary Bye Bye Pores Optical Blurring Technology to instantly diffuse the look of pores and discoloration. Talc-free and perfect for all skin tones and types, it’s loaded with anti-aging, skin-loving ingredients including silk, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants and peptides." To buy yours visit here.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blush is the only blush in my beauty bag, its a must have!


As I said when I opened the compact it was love at first look but I knew this was perfect for me when I applied it onto the apples of my cheeks and it just blended beautifully to my perfect flush of color. It also lasted all day with no reapplication needed. The Bye Bye Pores Blush and their cream blush have been my two favorites and what I use 99.9% of the time!  The shade the Bye Bye Pores Je Ne Sais Qui is perfect and buildable so anyone who is like me and sometimes tends to shy away from blush you will not shy away from this one. It is absolutely perfectly pigmented and I know I mentioned this but it is buildable so you can never apply to much. This is a blush that is for everyone it will brighten your complexion and lift your cheeks. This is a 5 $$$$$ and a beauty bag must! I am giving this EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

OPI Infinite Shine Collection

#BeautyBagDolls I am so happy and excited to be bringing you a review of OPI Infinite Shine Nail Polish Collection. I am a nail polish addict and I will wear any type of colors from bright shades to nudes. So when I received a variety of shades from OPI from nudes to bright shades I was beyond thrilled to try them out. I of course like anyone else do not have the time to change my nail polish each and every day so for me it needs to last and not chip or loose shine. OPI has solved all of these issues and they have 30 shades to choose from. To learn more and pick your favorite shades click here.
The shades are as follows from Left to Right:  Substantially Tan, Berlin There Done That, It Never Ends. The bright fun shades are Two-Timing the Zones, Living on the Bula-vard!, No Tan Lines and Do You Sea What I Sea?

I read that the OPI Infinite Shine Collection is a gel effect lacquer system that has hi-def gel shine without the light and wears up to 10 days. It is also soak free removal. When I opened the box I was thrilled with the shades they are beautiful the neutrals are Substantially Tan, Berlin There Done That, It Never Ends. The bright fun shades are Two-Timing the Zones, Living on the Bula-vard!, No Tan Lines and Do You Sea What I Sea? For me choosing a shade is difficult however I thought of my week ahead (I received this package on a Monday and painted my nails Monday night) and with meetings at work along with a presentation I decided that my usual choice of a bright pink, yellow or coral was not a great idea. I looked at what OPI sent me and I was totally drawn to the bright colors they sent but I made the adult decision to go towards the neutrals and decided that the shade that Berlin There Done That was perfect. I just love the shade and it was perfect for what I was going to wear for the next few days but what made me really happy was the compliments I got asking who my manicurist was and where I got them done. I was so happy I could say I had done them myself using OPI Infinite Shine. I am also excited to tell all of you that this Infinite Shine line from OPI truly lasts days I mean it was a week later and my nail polish was holding on strong I used no top coat and this did not chip and I did not baby it either. I did dishes by hand and lived my life. I also painted my toe nails the Shade Living On the Bula-vard! this was my pop of color that I could wear all week until I could use No Tan Lines and/or Do You Sea What I Sea? I am not a girl who shy's away from fun colors when ever I can I wear them on my finger nails because its just so much fun! I love nail polish and I love it to be long wear but that does not mean that when I want it to come off it should be difficult to come off. These polishes come off easily with any type of nail polish remover so I am thrilled (I have had a polish in my day that would not come off) this one stay on and keeps it high shine until you take it off.


The OPI Infinite Shine Collection is for the person who loves their polish to last and this is a beauty bag must. It is these best nail color I have had on my nails in a long time which makes this a 5 $$$$$ and no doubt this gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Doll 10 Simply Chic 6 Piece Collection QVC TSV 4/18/17

#BeautyBagDolls today is a very special day. It is time to #getdolledup with the QVC Today's Special Value from Doll 10. Today for one day only QVC will be offering the Doll 10 Simply Chic 6 Piece Collection This 6 piece collection is on sale starting at 12AM on April 18, 2017. The price is $49.98 and $3.00 shipping and handling. Their are 5 shades to choose from fair, light, medium, tan and deep. You choose your foundation shade and your concealer will automatically be the same one. Now you ask what exactly is in the kit? Read on to learn more and to see why I love my kit. To purchase click here or enter item number: A293915
This Doll 10 TSV is on sale April 18, 2017 and grab it before these 6 amazing beauty bag must haves sell out!

You will receive:
(1) 2 fl oz Supersize HydraGel Foundation
(1) .03 oz HydroBalm Precision Concealer
(1) .13 fl oz Arch Expert Brow Gel in Universal
(1) .40 fl oz Effortlash Mascara in Black
(1) .15 oz Lip Rouge Lipstick in So Chic
(1) Double Ended Conceal and Cover Brush

I have been in love with this HydrGel Foundation for a long time now. I have it in the medium shade for the summer because I self tan and get more sunlight so instead of my usual light shade I opted for the medium and it was the right choice for me. Doll 10 really knocks it out of the park for me when it comes to foundation their is nothing in it that irritates my sensitive skin. It really is full coverage and when you combine it the HydroBalm Precision Concealer you can kiss good bye all of the imperfections from view. I found this to be just amazing. I use it under my eyes for dark circles and on my blemishes. It blends out beautifully with the Double Ended Concealer and Cover Brush which is really soft and cut perfectly to fit the contours of your face. When you combine the HydraGel Foundation and HydroBalm Precision Concealer you have a smooth and even complexation that is just flawless. For me these two products and the brush are already well worth the TSV price but then it would be a TSV if Doll 10 didn't make this deal even better! Included in this fabulous Doll 10 Simply Chic 6 Piece Collection is the Arch Expert Brow Gel in a Universal Shade which I am a Dark Blonde (at the moment) and this matches perfectly and glides on with ease. It builds my brows where they are more sparse and gives a tail since that is where I struggle with my eye brows. The Arch Expert Brow Gel also looks very natural and did not feel like anything on my eye brows. It dries quickly and while it does I love to apply my mascara and the Doll 10 Effortlash Mascara is a true black mascara that is the mascara that gives me volume, length and lift in one stroke. I love a mascara that I can apply one coat and go and this is the one for that. The final piece to this beautiful collection of makeup is the Lip Rouge Lipstick in the So Chic shade. I have used other lip products from Doll 10 and love them this one was no different. I use one swipe on the top lip and one swipe on the bottom. The Lip Rouge Lipstick is a full coverage lipstick that give off the perfect amount of color pigment. It does not dry out your lips and doesn't need constant reapplication.
This will come to you beautifully packaged so get one for yourself and as a gift to give! (I bought two additional kits as gifts.)

This TSV from Doll 10 that is available right now is just amazing! I am giving it a 5 $$$$$. This has everything you need to have a flawless makeup application just add some eyeshadow from Doll 10 and you are good to go! I love that I got an advance look at this kit because I have been using products from it each and everyday! Pick yours up now and find out why it gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Double Dare Mask

There are some awesome masks out there #BeautyBagDolls and they come from a company called Double Dare I tried out two of the masks sets. One is the OMG! 2 in 1 Kit Detox Bubbling Microfiber Mask and the other is the OMG! 4 in 1 Kit Zone System Mask. To learn more about my experience read on and to purchase click here.
I #DareYouGo to try this because these two masks from Double Dare are the best in letting you skin glow!

The OMG! 2 in 1 Kits Detox Bubbling Mircrofiber Mask is a two step system that is just so nice. It is easy to do and makes you feel relaxed and refreshed. Your skin will glow. First take Step one and apply the mask to your it will cleanse and detox it with these amazing bubbles (note you must apply this to a clean face without makeup) Let these bubbles for anywhere from 1-3 minutes then remove and rinse off any excess makeup or reside pat your face dry. Follow up with the Microfiber mask . This is the second step and you leave this one on for about 15-20 minutes which will allow the skin to absorb all of the nutrients. After removing the mask gently massage in the excess serum into your skin and you are done! You will have soft glowing skin that feels amazing! It is the perfect way to spend some time to yourself! Also note I received this adorable head band that is soft and perfect to keep your hair out of your way while you apply your masks.

The next mask I received is the Double Dare OMG! 4 in 1 Kit Zone System Mask. Now this has four steps to it but you use them all at the same time and step one is to place the beautiful Eye Zone 24k Gold Eye Patch these are a soft hydrogel patch that nourishes the skin under your eyes. Step 2 (do note each step is packaged separately) is the T Zone Charcoal mask which is apply evenly over your T-Zone (which the forehead and nose) This step will help deeply cleanse, detoxify and reduce the appearance of pores. The 3rd step is the U Zone Kaolin clay mask which helps tighten and revitalize the skin. After these stay on your skin for about 10-15 minutes remove the 24k Gold Eye Patches and wash off the clay masks with warm water. Then take step 4 which is moisture finishing cream that feels wonderful on your skin after the mask. I love how my skin looked after just rinsing off the mask but then the moisture finishing cream just leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft.

I am giving both the OMG 2 in 1 Kit Detox Bubbling Microfiber Mask and the OMG! 4 in 1 Kit Zone System Mask 5 $$$$$ for their abilities to deliver results. Skin is left clean, soft and glowing after using these mask systems. I must say they are both beauty bag must haves that get EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

John Frieda Sheer Blonde

#BeautyBagDolls I am so happy that I have the privilege to review John Frieda hair care for you once again!  Today I am bringing you two of their products from the Sheer Blonde line however if your like me your hair color varies depending on your style, mood or season. So do note that John Frieda offers this in Brilliant Brunette as well.   To learn more and to purchase click here.
Two steps from John Frieda that will give your blonde hair a bright hue! A beauty bag must have!

Now I received the John Frieda Sheer Blonde Brilliant Brighter Ultra Illuminating Shampoo. This shampoo transforms blonde from dull to dazzling. It also "brightens & illuminates for shimmery, reflective blonde. Sheer Blonde Brilliantly Brighter Ultra Illuminating Shampoo, with crushed pearls, improves translucency and light reflection to reveal brighter, more reflective blonde."  I used the shampoo and the John Frieda Sheer Blonde Brilliantly Brighter Blonde Perfecting Treatment. My  first step is to shampoo twice with the shampoo which smells amazing and does cleanse nicely. My hair was defiantly visibly brighter. However, what truly made the biggest difference was the  Frieda Sheer Blonde Brilliantly Brighter Blonde Perfecting Treatment this treatment "brightens and harmonises your blonde. With proprietary Light Reflecting Technology, this in-shower treatment adds a shimmery overlay of pearlescent, light-reflecting tones that move naturally in the light." With this you need to follow the instructions and apply it to your hair in sections like suggested on the box. This stays in for 5 minutes and then rinse. Also do note you can only use this every 3 washes between uses. This truly lightened and deposited pigment into my hair and made it nice and bright! I love this step so much for the fact that my hair looked as if I had it touched up at the salon. The Shampoo combined with the treatment is a beauty bag must and is getting a 5 $$$$$. This also get EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA

dermalogica Active Moist

#BeautyBagDolls if you are looking for the perfect lightweight moisturizer than look no further than the dermalogica Active Moist. This is a  "sheer, easy-to-apply Active Moist formula contains Silk Amino Acids and a unique combination of plant extracts that help improve skin texture and combat surface dehydration." I am so excited to share my thoughts about this moisturizer with all of you. If you would like to purchase click here.
Lightweight moisturizer is perfect for spring and summer and this one is a beauty bag must have!

Now, if your like me your used to using a thick moisturizer and the thought of a lightweight moisturizer is a nice idea and this one from dermalogica is in fact lightweight and oil free which makes it friendly for someone like me with acne prone skin. You apply over damp face and throat with light, upward strokes and if your like me you like to layer on top of the Phyto Replenish Oil. The dermalogica Active Moist absorbs quickly and does not feel greasy or thick. This is by far the moisturizer for me with spring here and summer arriving over the next few months. I have been reaching for this each and everyday its great in the morning before applying your primer and your makeup! My skin has a soft and supple texture with this dermalogica Active Moist it is a beauty bag must and I am giving it a 5 $$$$$. EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA no doubt!

PUR Cosmetics Miracle Mist

I have been hearing a lot of hype lately about setting sprays and mists. I have been using one kind for a while now and when I heard about the PUR Cosmetics Miracle Mist I was beyond interested to try it out #BeautyBagDolls and when PUR Cosmetics sent it to me I grabbed it right out of the box.

A few spritzes of this Miracle Mist from PUR and your makeup is set and your skin is hydrated!


I was interested in learning that this Miracle Mist hydrating face spray instantly moisturizes dry, tired and stressed skin with more than 70 essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids. I also wanted to try this as a setting spray which is exactly what I did. It feels really nice on your skin and dries down quickly without feeling sticky or tacky. It smells amazing too which is a must because sometimes setting sprays can just smell gross and this one is the complete opposite of that. I love this PUR Miracle Mist  so much and I can see why they suggest to even use it onto your body after showering, it really hydrates in face I missed it a few times mid day just to refresh my makeup and it did rehydrate my skin and make me look dewy! You only need 2-3 sprays and it covers your entire face and neck. This is a fabulous setting spray and refreshing to use mid day to rehydrate your skin. I am giving this a 5 $$$$$. This is an absolute beauty bag must and it gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

dermalogica Hydrablur Primer

As a makeup lover I have never loved extra steps in my makeup routine on days that I need to be out the door and over the past few years I have become a lover of primers (I used to avoid them) It is hard to find a good one but the dermalogica Hydrablur Primer is one that I love to use not only before applying my makeup but to seal in my skincare before bedtime. To purchase click here and to find out why I love it read on.
This primer minimizes pores and is oil mattifying which makes a perfect primer for me since I have combination skin!

The dermalogica Hydrablur Primer is described as a lightweight, non-greasy primer minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, mattifies against oily shine and imparts a silky, luminous finish to skin." The "H2ORelease Complex and Abyssinian Oil help provide intense, sustained release moisturization that locks in optimum hydration levels." For me a lightweight non greasy primer is a must since I have acne prone skin I do not want to be putting something I my skin that could be break it out. This is great for my sensitive acne prone skin it beautifully lays down a silky smooth finish that preps my skin for makeup application. All the while the Hydrablur Primer does not make my skin feel dry instead it mattifies against oil shine and leaves a hydrated feeling to my skin. I love this primer because it also minimizes my pores which makes my makeup look so much better. I like putting some on at night to seal in my skincare so it doesn't melt off onto my pillow. The fact that I want to wear a primer at night speaks volumes to how much I love this one, I mean hello the extra step doesn't bother me at all! This is a beauty bag must and a 5 $$$$$ for sure. It get EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

PUR Cosmetics Makeup Brushes

#BeautyBagDolls you have asked me and I am so happy I get to answer. Your always asking me about makeup application tools, whether to uses brushes versus sponges or a combination of both. I am a girl who uses both and I am also happy to bring to you a review of 2 makeup brushes from PUR Cosmetics.

Two makeup brushes from PUR Cosmetics that are a must have!



The first brush is the PUR Cosmetics Powder Foundation Brush.  This brush is a beautiful brush that is used to apply powder foundation so it get a lot of use from me. I am a powder foundation girl all day every day even if I apply a liquid I use powder over top. The PUR Cosmetics Powder Foundation Brush picks up just the right amount of powder foundation and glides over my face with easy distributing it evenly. The brush hairs are soft yet densely packed while the hand is chubby but short and easy to grasp. The brush hairs are synthetic fibers and PUR product are 100% cruelty free. The PUR Cosmetics Powder Brush also hold up to being cleaned with brush cleanser and laying it flat to dry. It did not lose even one hair which made me extremely happy that this brush will be in my beauty bag for a long time! the PUR Cosmetics Powder Brush is a must have and the price is just right. I give it a 5 $$$$$ and some EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Now for anyone who reads this blog they know I love to contour and finding the right contour brush is not easy however PUR Cosmetics Contour Foundation Brush is the perfectly shaded brush for my face. It naturally fits into the areas I contour. The brush is very tightly pack and dense. Its shape also come to a point. I can tap it into my crème highlight/contour kit to pick up product and it helps me place the product in the exact place I want it on my face. I have never been able to sculpt my face like this before. Like the Powder Foundation Brush it is made with synthetic hairs and is cruelty free. It holds up beautifully to being cleansed. I love this PUR Cosmetics Contour Foundation Brush and it is a beauty bag must that is getting a 5 $$$$$ along with EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil

As a new fan of dermalogica I am so happy to be bringing you a review of their new Phyto Replenish Oil. I am beyond excited to share this review with you. Recently I have become more and more of a fan of face oils but you know that they have to be the right one. I have combination oily to dry skin that is sensitive and acne prone so I am picky when it comes to skincare and especially oils. I was excited to try this one. To purchase click here and to find out my experience read on.
My skin has never glowed more! I love this Phyto Replenish Oil from Dermalogica! Skin changing!

After cleansing (click here to learn about dermalogica double cleanse) I most of the time follow with an oil and/or moisturizer (sometimes I even mix the two in my hands then apply) For me the oil part of my routine depends on my type that day. I know that even if my skin is oily applying a moisturizer is a non negotiable. When I opened the dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil I was excited because this one promises to rapidly absorb and reinforce the skin's protective barrier. This truly is different because have I applied around 5-6 drops on my face I looked in the mirror and I didn't look shiny or oily at all it quickly absorbed into my skin without leaving and greasy feeling in fact I could snap my fingers immediately. I also had a glow to my skin that I never had before and in the mornings which is when I rarely apply an oil to my face I did so with the dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil because I found the quick absorption and wrinkle pluming to be a must in the morning. It made applying powder foundations a breeze because my skin was pump and the foundation didn't crease into my fine lines and wrinkles. On days that my skin was dry I used it twice on days that it was not I used it once. This oil really gave me glowing skin and when I combined it with the moisturizer from dermalogica (reviewing coming soon, stay tune) I had really a healthy glowing complexion. I am a huge fan of the dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil and its a 5 $$$$$ for every reason listed above. A beauty bag must and this gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

PUR Cosmetics No Filter Primer

#BeautyBagDolls  I am so glad to be able to bring you a review of the PUR Cosmetics No Filter Blurring Photography Primer. For me this is a totally different primer than I am used to! I usually always apply my primer before applying makeup and it is colorless. The PUR Cosmetics No Filter Primer can be used that way as well or you can add it to your foundation or layered under powder highlighters for an instant boost of radiance and all over the body for a healthy, glowing appearance from head to toe. To purchase your click here.
If you want luminosity from a primer the PUR Cosmetics No Filter Primer is your must have like is mine!

Now for me this is a different primer because like I mentioned it is not completely clear or white it has a luminosity to it. I mean its white but it has an iridescent sheen to it which is absolutely beautiful. In all honesty I want it all over my face neck and décolletage. Another great fact about this primer that separates it from other is that if you mix it with foundation any foundation including my favorite from PUR the Bare All 4 in 1 Foundation to give it a luminosity as you apply it. I just love the glow it gives to the foundation and that really separates this primer from others. I also put this on top of my finish makeup look on the apples of my cheeks just to add a highlight glow to my skin. I am just saying this truly is the ultimate multi-tasking primer. Its a beauty bag must with a 5 $$$$$ it is worth every dollar spent and I am giving it EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

dermalogica Cleansing

Today #BeautyBagDolls I am bringing you a review of a truly wonderful line of skincare products. This line is dermalogica. I was thrilled to get a generous box  of their products to review and I immediately started with their cleansing products. Included was the dermalogica precleanse and the dermalogica special cleansing gel. If you would like to purchase these visit here.
This double cleanse combination from Dermalogica is a beauty bag must have for clean skin!

I am the girl that double cleanses pretty much everyday. If I have makeup on then you bet I am double cleansing. First I use a makeup remover to take off all the makeup then I follow up cleanse just to make sure I am getting all the dirt and grime off of my face to prep it for skincare. The only exception to my double cleanse routine is my morning routine I use a regular cleanser or sometimes I exfoliate in the morning (which helps with a great makeup application) Dermalogica has the perfect product for all of the double cleansers out there it is the dermalogica precleanse. This is a deep cleansing oil that melts impurities and makeup from the skin. I am so excited about this product because this truly melted away all of my makeup including waterproof mascara and layers of concealers, foundations and blush/bronzer. You use this by pumping some out onto your dry hands massage over dry face and eyes to dissolve surface oil and dirt. This step gets even better because you then wet your hands and massage it all over face until it turns into a milky emulsion then rinse with warm water. You have officially removed all the makeup from your skin and have prepped it for your cleanser which in this case is the dermalogica special cleansing gel. The dermalogica special cleansing gel is a "soap-free, foaming gel cleanses all skin conditions," it has a "refreshing lather thoroughly removes impurities without disturbing the skin's natural moisture balance." My skin usually feels tight and dry after most cleanings however this is different and I know this because I have used in combination with the precleanse as well as alone in the my morning routine. This lathers nicely and feels nice on the skin however after I rinse my skin doesn't feel tight or dry it just feels smooth and clean. For me with my combination oily to dry acne prone skin this is the cleansing routine that doesn't irritate or cause breakouts for my sensitive skin. These are two beauty bag must haves that are a 5 $$$$$ and are getting EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

I was so happy to have this on Saturday because I went out with friends and I wanted a fun but easy hair style and the hairdo 23" Color Splash Wrap Around Pony was the perfect solution. The Color Splash Wrap Around Pony comes all the same natural hair shades all of the other extensions and hair accessories availed on hairdo however this comes with a splash of color which is highlighted and dip-dyed pastel ends: blue, pink, light green or lavender. I received the Buttered Toast and Lavender hairdo 23" Color Splash Wrap Around Pony. The hair color matches my hair perfectly and the splash of lavender is perfection. It adds the right pop of color without being over done. I only wanted to spend a few minutes doing my hair to go out and that's exactly what I did. I put my hair in a ponytail and  the long and wavy pony includes a smooth strip of hair that wraps around the holder and fastens it in with a hook-and-loop strip to conceal where the ponytail met my own hair. This was so simple and in the end I looked amazing. My friends thought I went to the salon and had my hair done, they had no clue it was a fun extension that will take me 10 seconds to take out at the end of the night!

hairdo. Invisible Extension

Well #BeautyBagDolls I recently review the hairdo French Braid Band and that was impressive but now I am floored with the hairdo Invisible Extension. The shade choices are a wide range-I mean there is 13 shades to choose from which makes it very easy to match your exact shade. The fact that this is a clip free halo hair extension is my favorite part! I have always used the clip type extensions and they can be a pain in more ways then one but I put up with it for the added volume/length and dimension of color it gives me. I will no longer have to hassle with clips now the hairdo Invisible Extension has come into my life. To buy yours visit here.
This hairdo Invisible Extensions is so comfortable you will forget you have it in.



I received this in the Buttered Toast shade which is great for me because it blends with my current hair color nicely yet it adds an extra dimension of color that make my face look more alive! I am also thrilled with the fact that it adds such a great amount of volume to my usual over teased hair. When I slip this over my head and work it into the spot I want it I can literally just go out the door! Its that easy! I want to note that the length on this hairdo Invisible Extension is 20 inches and that you can flat iron, cur or blow dry it. It is made withTru2Life heat-friendly synthetic hair which is why your can style it the way you want it. The color will blend beautifully because it made up to 7-11 shades to blend. I am thrilled with how lightweight it is. You will truly forget that you put it in. I know I did. I also got a lot of compliments, not the extensions just that my hair looked good! I am telling you this blends seamlessly and looks amazing! This gets a 5 $$$$$ and without a doubt is a beauty bag must. I must shout out some EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA as well!
