Scandalous packaging….no???  LOL    I get my jollies where I can and for some reason this just strikes me funny.  The box in “unique” let say!

It Cosmetics CC Cream Review and Demo

So you all know that I just discovered It Cosmetics. Apparently I have been living under a rock because I’m loving what I’m seeing!!!  How could this brand have flown under my radar for so long????

I tried the It Cosmetics CC as a sample and immediately had to go get myself a full size version.  I am an NC 20 in Mac and the “Light” shade of the It Cosmetics CC Cream was the perfect shade for me.  The finish is gorgeous, the coverage is amazing and I’m in love.

Hourglass Icon Lipstick Dupe

Ohhhh, do I have some news for you. I have found a dupe for Hourglass’ lipstick in Icon. If you have been reading my blog you already know that I love the color of the Icon lipstick, but I do not love the smell. Its kind of an oily smell. So anyway, I went through my collection and found a lipstick with identical color……and its CHEAP!

Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment Review and Swatches

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatmenticons are wonderful. I especially enjoy their tinted lip treatments as they give a hint of color that looks glossy and brings your face to life.  Some days I need the extra help, especially when I’m going sans makeup for a quick run to the store or gym.  They also have an SPF 15, which isn’t as high as I would like, but hey, for a quick trip that is going to expose me to the sun while driving and running in and out of a store its probably enough.
