Physicians Formula NEW InstaReady for Eyes

#BeautyBagDolls today I am bringing you my last review in a series of reviews from Physicians Formula and it will cover everything you need for the best eye makeup look you can ask for. It is from their InstaReady line and if you recall I wrote a review earlier that will give you a InstaReady flawless face you can read that here. Now as for the eye area I like to start with eye primer and the Physicians Formula InstaReady Eye Primer Duo is perfect. You get both the matte and shimmer choice which is formulated with LockedIn Technology that creates an invisible canvas for longwearing, crease-resistant eyeshadow. High-performance, smudge-resistant formula keeps eyeshadow in place. This is a fabulous formula for me because it does not fall out of place or smudge just as promised and it is non irritating along with making my eye shadow last!
Everything you need to create a great eye look from a great brand!


Now for the eye shadow it is the InstaReady Multi Finish Eye Shadow that comes in three finishes Matte, Satin and Shimmer along with two shades Natural Nude and Smoky Nude. This eye shadow features InstaFilter Technology, a proprietary blend of mattifying color filter pigments and high-tech polymers that work together to instantly optimize light reflection and blur imperfections. Includes a unique built-in applicator! These are very pigmented eye shadows that show up the moment it touches your eye lids and I love that. They don not feel heavy and last all day without fall out which is a absolute must for me. The Physicians Formula Multi-Finish Eye Shadow is available in March 2017 Now if your like me you like to line your upper lash line with a light wing our a full blown wing of course its totally up to you! However now that the Physicians Formula Eye Booster Matte Lacquer Cream Eyeliner came into my life I am addicted. It not only makes a great line it water proof and smudge resistant. It has a flexible velvet tip: unique angled-tip dispenses color easily onto the lash line making lining effortless, Lash Boosting Technology: extra-longwear formula is water-resistant and smudge-resistant so color stays put, delivering seamless definition and is infused with Lash Conditioning Peptides. This not only helps my eye lashes it will not come off until I take it off!

My upper lash line is now taken care of I am thrilled to line my lower lash line with a choice of three shades each sold separately starting in March 2017 is the Physicians Formula InstaReady Glide-On Gel Eyeliner  the shades are Black Velvet, Champagne and Gunmetal. I love all three and use them each as I see fit when pairing it with my eye shadow. The Physician's Formula easy-to-use automatic InstaReady Glide-On Gel Eyeliner glides on smoothly and provides effortless definition. Cushiony, creamy eye pencil delivers powerful, vibrant color that glides on smooth for a long-lasting finish that won't budge. Removable sharpener included! The formula is fabulous and did not irritate my sensitive eyes at all it also lasted all day until I removed it. The shades are gorgeous and pigmented perfectly. As with any eye look I finish with mascara and the new Physicians Formula Lash Contortionist Mascara which now available in retail stores across the nation. This is a one step mascara that give length, definition, thickness, fullness and drama to your lashes in one swipe of the wand. It has Fiber Lock Technology with interlocking fibers that wrap around each lash to build amplified volume and outrageous length. I love this and it comes in the shades brown/black and ultra black.

I am in love with all the Physicians Formula New InstaReady products for eyes. They are incredible at defining and making your eyes look their best. These are 5 $$$$$ products that are available to you now or in the coming months. A Beauty Bag must for sure!

Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Bright Booster Oil Elixir

#BeautyBagDolls my latest obsession in skincare has been oils and I have tried many that have been not so great and some that are staples in my skincare routine and now I am so thrilled to be bringing you another one that is truly great! It is the Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Bright Booster Oil Elixir. This is a oil elixir that is made with green ingredients that are going to brighten your skin. It is described as "a lightweight and fast-absorbing texture that leaves a smooth, non-sticky finish, melting onto the skin, leaving it silky, soft, and never greasy. Signs of aging appear visibly reduced while skin appears smoother, more radiant, revived, rejuvenated, and nourished instantly!"
An Oil Elixir that boosts your skin instantly!

I agree that it is lightweight and I am not sure if it is because my skin has been properly hydrated I have to be honest in saying it takes my skin a good five minutes to fully absorb this which for me is not a problem because the fact that it leaves my skin looking brighter than any other oil I use. I prefer to use the Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Orgin Bright Booster Oil Elixir each night since I have more time to wait for it to absorb and I love how radiant my skin looks immediately and when I wake up in the morning my fine lines were reduced. In the morinng I used it in on my dry forehead and it absorbs quickly melting into my skin and on areas of my oily T-Zone it takes a little longer so I just want everyone to note that. The dropper is self loading and easy to use the ingredients include Mongongo Oil and Rhodiola Extract, enhances moisturization and helps boost radiance which explains why I have such glowing skin. The Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Bright Booster Oil Elixir is one that I reach for every night and most morning and for that reason and the fact that my skin is glowing I am giving it a 5 $$$$$.

OMG #BeautyBagDolls I cannot believe my eyes when it comes to the brand new Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Cushion Corrector+Primer Duo with SPF 20. Now what makes this amazing is the results combined with the packaging for me. I am so happy to have a product housed in one place that cover two issues.

Four color correction product in just two compacts! Beauty Bag staples!


The Physician's Formula  Cushion Corrector + Primer Duo with Shades: Peach brightens darkness and Lavender brightens dullness. The Cushion Corrector + Primer Duo with Shades: Yellow corrects dark circles and dullness and Green corrects redness. I need both of these compacts to help to minimize my imperfections quickly and without irritating my sensitive skin. The redness in my chin is blurred and my dark circles are made to look out of view while my skin looks so much brighter and my pores are minimized! I am so thrilled that these come in a perfect little compact that houses two products you need most without crowding your makeup bag. The applicator sponge is included and is okay for use on the go however I prefer a brush or sponge to lay it down with. This is a 5 $$$$$ product for the effectiveness and ease of use.

Physicians Formula Butter Blush Murumuru Blush

#BeautyBagDolls if you have been following over the past few years than you know I had a fear of blush that has faded over the years and now I am a huge fan of blush and one big reason is that Physicians Formula has come out with so many beautiful shades and formulas that fit different skin types. The newest formula in blush from Physicians Formula is their Butter Blush Murumuru Blush which is available in two shades Plum Rose and Natural Glow. Both are beautiful shades and plum rose is one I like to wear at night with more of a dramatic nighttime makeup look. The shade Natural Glow is my everyday daytime look and is just as beautiful.
Adding this blush to your makeup routine will awaken you face and your sense of smell!

The shades are amazing and I must say they are noticeable but once you open these the very first thing you will notice is the scent they smell like summer! It is heaven for me on a cold winter day!Physician's Formula Murumuru Butter Blush has an ultra-luxurious formula, infused with Murumuru Butter, delivers a radiant Brazilian goddess glow! Moisturizing wonder features ultra-refined pearl and soft-focus pigments that smooth skin texture, brighten skin tone, and deliver a gorgeous blushing glow.

It is infused with a powerful blend of Murumuru Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Tucuma Butter, from the lush and nutrient-rich Amazon. Packed with essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins that soften, condition and moisturize skin, leaving it silky soft.

Skinny & Co Peppermint Lip Balm

I want to sing I am so happy right now! #BeautyBagDolls I am obsessed with lip balm and now I have found one that does double duty! Double duty yes because the Skinny & Co Peppermint Lip Balm is a nourishing and hydrating lip balm that also seemed to plump up my lips. The peppermint in this lip balm helped plump them which is something I love but hate the extra step when having to apply several things on my lips before lipstick or gloss. So the fact that the  Skinny & Co Peppermint Lip Balm does that for me I am thrilled! I am also a person who pay attention to packaging and the tin lip balm is usually a love hate relationship because I love how fresh the tins keep my lip balm but opening them is a hassle for me with most brands but not Skinny & Co they did it right making the tin packaging a dream to open and close. I must thank Skinny & Co for that detail that is so important.

This is the best lip balm it truly hydrates! A Beauty Bag Must from Skinny & Co




I always use my lip balm at least two or three times a day and this one is more the two times a day type of lip balm. It deeply hydrated my lips which is much needed in the winter months and it really worked quickly. It absorbed without leaving my lips feeling slimy or heavy and it healed any chapped issue I had. The ingredients are simple yet very effective. They are 100% Raw Coconut, Oil Bees, Wax Vitamin E and Peppermint. I am in love with this Skinny & Co Peppermint Lip Balm it is my go to and beauty Bag must have which means it is a 5 $$$$$.

Skinny & Co Raw Soap & Shampoo Bar

Aloha #BeautyBagDolls I have a very special review for you today. I was sent some amazing products from Skinny & Co that have now become my obsession and this is the second part of my three part series of reviews. This one will cover the Skinny & Co Cinnamon Raw Soap and the Skinny & Co Lavender Orange Shampoo Bar (that's right a shampoo bar). These two are now a permanent staple in my bathroom. Read on to learn why.

These two have changed the beauty game! Skinny & Co products are must have!


 The Skinny & Co Raw Soap comes in 5 scents and I received the Cinnamon which is so amazing I mean it smells like a cinnamon roll which is something I have given up since the holidays have passed but I get my dose of it without the calories instead my skin is left clean and hydrated because the ingredient deck is all natural and made with ingredients I can actually pronounce. The ingredient's are as follows; 100% Raw Coconut Oil, Natural Ingredients, Unrefined Palm Oil, Glycerin, Vitamin E and Various Essential Oils. This is a large bar of soap and will last a good long while with daily use. You just run it under warm water to create a lather and then wash away the day while washing in moisture to your skin. I am in love and I cannot get enough of this bar of soap. Nevertheless I am purchasing this again and it is a beauty bag must have getting a 5 $$$$$.

I also got try the Skinny & Co Shampoo Bar which I received in the Lavender Orange scent which is refreshing, invigorating and just so great for your hair. I never ever used a Shampoo Bar until the Skinny & Co Shampoo Bar but it is so easy to use. Just wet your hair, run the bar under warm water and lather it up. Wash your hair and rinse. There ae not added toxins, parabens and it will not build up in your hair. Instead it deeply hydrates which is something my hair is in desperate need of. My hair type is always more on the dry side but at this time of the year it is extra dry and I can honestly say that this is the first shampoo that really hydrated the strands of my hair to the point where by the time I use it a second and third time I skipped using my conditioner because it almost reversed the good that the Skinny & Co Shampoo Bar did. So I now cleanse twice with the shampoo bar and skip conditioner, instead I prefer to take a small amount of the Skinny & Co Coconut Oil and rub in a small amount into my ends after I come out of the shower. The Shampoo Bar nourishes my hair and scalp keeping it hydrated and clean this is a beauty bag must and a 5 $$$$$.

Skinny & Co Coconut Oil

#BeautyBagDolls I am so proud to be bringing you part 1 of a 3 part review of Skinny & Co coconut products. The first part today is going to be about the Skinny & Co Coconut Oil Some information about the coconut oil   from Skinny & Co is that "Wild-Harvested, not plantation grown, has No chemicals, fillers, or preservatives and is Cold-Processed; Not Just Cold Pressed."

A Beauty Bag must that you can also keep in your pantry! Now that's a double duty product everyone needs!


I first used the Skinny & Co Coconut Oil  as a deep conditioning treatment for my hair. It has been much drier now that the winter has dried it out and I just added this in through my ends which deeply hydrated it because after I shampooed with  the Skinny & Co Shampoo bar (review to come) I could feel the difference. I also used this to condition my eyelashes and eye brows. I also melted some for the heals of my feet which are always so dry at this time of the year, put some on your cuticles, elbow, knees and in all honesty its an amazing full body moisturizer. My skin just drinks it in. The best part is I also found ways I could use it in the kitchen because it is 100% Raw Coconut Oil. The first thing I use it in was in my morning coffee, it was so delicious in fact it really made my usually unsweetened coffee much better. I also used it in place of regular oil when cooking and baking! It worked great just the other day when baking a chocolate cake I used it to oil the pan and the cake came right out of the pan after cooling. I am in love with this Skinny & Co Coconut oil! I give this a 5 $$$$$ and must say it is a beauty and pantry staple!

It Cosmetics New Year New Confidence in Your Skin 4 Piece Collection QVC TSV 1/14/16

Its happening #ITGirls and #BeautyBagDolls It Cosmetics has given the It girls and guys just what they wanted a QVC Today's Special Value that has skincare included it the It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence in Your Skin 4 Piece Collection 4- Piece Skincare Collection. This beautifully packaged TSV will be on sale for one day only January 14, 2017 starting at 12AM  The price is $79.96 and Free Shipping and Handling. Item number: A287731 and you now 7 shades to choose from Fair, Light, Medium, Medium Tan, Tan, Rich and Deep.
The It Cosmetics New Year New Confidence in Your Skin 4 Piece Collection is a must have because It Cosmetics has married Skincare with makeup beautifully!

When I saw what was in this TSV I was thrilled because two of the pieces are already my favorite everyday beauty product that I use and the other two are brand new! The amazing kit is described as
an exclusive four-piece collection features two of your IT Girl skincare must-haves, plus two new game-changing innovations that deliver life-changing, skin-transforming results! While new Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream is your solution for a smoother, brighter-looking eye area, Confidence in a Cream intensely hydrates and is perfect for all skin types! Also included is your new Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50+, which features all the benefits of your best-selling cream—infused with full-coverage pigments and SPF 50+ physical sunscreen for all-day complexion perfection. Use your new Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush for flawlessly even application and get compliments on your skin, not your makeup!

I have been using Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream since its debut in September and I absolutely love the results in fact this one is going to be my third jar.  Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream is made just for fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. Most morning I have some puffiness and at times the dark circles accompany the puffiness. I usually only use an eye cream in the evenings because I have had bad experiences with them as in irritation and sensitively, I mean to the point where my eyes tear so bad I couldn't apply eye makeup in morning and go on about my day normally. That has all changed thanks to the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream. It also DOES NOT IRRITATE my sensitive eyes! I am thrilled to report that if I apply this in the AM before makeup my eyes have no issues in fact my fines lines had softened within a week and I love when I apply it PM and wake up in the AM I do not have puffiness or dark circles. The hydration around my eye area improved immediately and with ingredients such as anti-aging copper, blue algae, caffeine, Vitamin C, collagen, cucumber extract and peptides I now know why I have such great results. The eye cream has a blue tint to it which is what helps brighten the eye area upon application and I love that effect when I apply this in the morning after not getting enough sleep. It Cosmetics  Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream feels great on my skin and absorbs quickly.
The Bye Bye Eye Eye Cream has helped with fine lines and dark circles which makes my day!

Confidence in a Cream is a staple in my routine for close to a year now and I have gone through 3 jars plus a travel size mini. This is a must have for me and I have also reviewed this before. This is an amazing transforming moisturizing super cream that is for all skin types, which means its perfect for anyone like me with acne prone skin that is super sensitive. I must also note that it does have a lemon scent to it which is my favorite scent when it comes to a face cream, it was not irritating to me at all in fact it is refreshing. A little more background information about It Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream is that it "nourishes your skin with collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the texture of your skin and delivering the ideal amount of moisture." My personal experience has been nothing but perfection for my imperfect skin. After the first use and just about 5 minutes after applying Confidence In A Cream to my neck, décolletage and face I noticed that it absorbed within a minute, didn't feel greasy or heavy and my fine lines around my eyes plumped up and look smooth. I also felt that my chest, neck and face had the perfect amount of moisture. After using it morning and night for about 5 days I could see that the subtle but noticeable to me fine lines on my décolletage and forehead had softened and my pores were non existent. Around day 12-14 I was thrilled that my acne scars lightened to the point were I did not need concealer and I am HAPPY to report I didn't breakout at all, as not from the Confidence In A Cream and as in Confidence In A Cream balanced my skin. I don't know how it did it but it did. I am pretty sure it balanced the amount of hydration my skin need to stay clear of acne. My skin feels silky smooth, looks glowing and has gotten better and better each day that passes. Fine lines around non-existent along with pores, acne and acne marks of the past! I want to SING my PRAISES for It Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream but I am not a singer so instead I will suggest that you grab this TSV from QVC while it is available because the price of this cream alone is worth the entire kit itself!
This is a moisturizer that has helped balanced my combination acne prone skin. It really is Confidence in a Cream.

The next product is a brand new edition to the It Cosmetics line and it the  Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50+, which features all the benefits of your best-selling cream—infused with full-coverage pigments and SPF 50+ physical sunscreen for all-day complexion perfection. This is WOW I mean a full coverage foundation that is a solid super cream just truly changed the game and yes of course it has SPF 50+ physical sunscreen. I mean you only need very little on the Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush also included in the TSV New Year New Confidence in Your Skin 4 Piece Collection. I press my brush into this compact and buff it onto my skin and the coverage is instant. It feels cool on my skin and the coverage is buildable from light to a good medium coverage. My acne scars and redness disappears instantly and the formula never sits in my fine lines or wrinkles. Oh and I love the dewy/glowy finish, its beautiful!  The groundbreaking solid serum technology combined  with a super ceramide complex, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid and squalene give you the look of your most youthful, flawless skin and with my Birthday being just a few days ago I can honestly say no one thinks I am the age I am when I wear It Cosmetics makeup and skincare line!
This is an amazing solid serum foundation that is full coverage and good for my skin, combine it with the Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush for flawless and even application.

Finally, the brush that is included called Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush is just amazing angled perfectly to get into the contours of you face including under your eye area and around your nose for even flawless application is just a dream. I mean It Cosmetics brushes have been my favorite for a very long time now and they have truly kicked it up when the brush hair itself has skincare infused right into it! Of course it is custom cut like all of their brushes and the hair itself is designed to optically blur away the look of imperfections so combined with the New Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50 these are a match made in makeup and skincare heaven!
The It Cosmetics New Year New Confidence in Your Skin 4 Piece Collection QVC TSV comes beautifully packed to give as a gift or gift to yourself in the New Year.

This entire Today's Special Value is a skincare and makeup lovers dream come true! I am a huge follower/fan and loyal user of It Cosmetics and I say grab this for you, a friend and family member to gift because this type of value from It Cosmetics with Skincare and Makeup include in one kit is an absolute must have and of course a 5 $$$$$ If you are new the skincare like Confidence in a cream or bye bye under eye eye cream than this is the perfect way to start a new skincare regime in the new year and the Confidence in A Compact Skin-Transforming Full Coverage Solid Super Serum foundation  along with the Heavely Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush will become your new favorite makeup like it did mine!

Hershey's Kisses Flavored Lip Balm

Hi #BeautyBagDolls I am so happy to be bringing you a very special review of the Limited Edition Hershey's Kisses Vanilla Crème Flavored Lip Balm. I was lucky enough to snag one of these little gems at Target and I was so happy to. It was the only flavor I saw available at my local target and I was thrilled because I am a fan of Vanilla Crème and I am a lip balm addict. I will buy and try several each week if I must to find the perfect one for my lips which are pretty sensitive. I mean I have tried some of the most expensive lip balm brands and they have left my lips feeling worse than how they started!
Not only is this adorable packaging it is effective lip balm!

Grab this Hershey's Kisses lip balm and I can tell you will fall in love with this beauty bag must!

This lip balm that only costs $2.99 at Target is a dream. It glides on smoothly and you can immediately feel that there is Jojoba oil and Shea Butter in this lip balm because it moisturizes quickly and lasts for a few hours before you feel that need to reapply. The flavor is really nice on your lips and yes you can wear it as is because it is clear or apply your favorite lipstick, lip stain or lip gloss on top. I love this lip balm and wish I had grabbed more because when I went back a few days later they were gone at my local Target store the next time I am out of town I will be searching the Target in that area. This is a 5 $$$$$ for effectiveness and value.
