IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream

Okay so I am FINALLY doing my review on the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream.  I’ve had this product for a few weeks now and I must say, I really like it.  Do I love it?  No.  Would I repurchase?  I’m not sure. Let’s review it.  First off it has a nice thick consistency but, to me, it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.  I feel like it “melts” into my so it doesn’t feel like I…

No Primer, No Problem!

No Primer, No Problem!

As you all know, I’ve recently become OBSESSED with make-up tutorials on Youtube.  Well, I have a few of my faves, but I also have a few others that I will occasionally check out.  GossMakeupArtist is one I occasionally watch.  Last week he posted a GREAT tip on how to make your foundation last.  Seeing as I’ve been having foundation issues, I wanted to know what his tip was. Now, before I go into exactly what you do, I just…

I went to the MAC counter

I went to the MAC counter

God help us all, or really just Matt’s check book! 😉 I’ve had a lot of makeup posts lately and it’s because I have recently become obsessed with makeup tutorials on youtube.  I’ll list a few of my fave channels at the bottom.  Anyway, they’ve sparked this new found interest/obsession with all things makeup.  Mostly though, I’m still looking for “the” foundation.  My Stila is still doing okay but my skin has changed and I no longer find I am…

Oh Mary Kay

Oh Mary Kay

Two weeks ago I went on a little MK shopping spree.  I bought eye cream, moisturizer, and a microderm kit.  My old skin care routine just wasn’t cutting it so when someone on IG mentioned they were using MK products I decided to give them another try.  A long time ago, when I was still living in AL, my mom and I started using MK products.  We both really liked them, but at the time, it was a little difficult…

Oh Bobbi….

Oh Bobbi….

Before Christmas, I booked a “makeover” at the Bobbi Brown counter. Even after the disastrous foundation debacle I wanted to see what a pro could do. I was able to book a 4:30 appt on Friday the 20th. I get to the mall early and walk around for a few minutes. I pass by the Bobbi Brown store and notice it seems eerily empty but I’m early so I head to Belk for a few minutes. About 10 minutes before…

Stila, stila, stila’n my heart

Stila, stila, stila’n my heart

I’m clever.  HAHA! Obviously I’ve been looking for a new foundation.  After watching countless Youtube makeup tutorials I’ve decided not to settle for “just okay” makeup.  I’m going to at least try and be fancy.  🙂  Matt and I took Monday off and ran errands, mostly buying Christmas presents.  While we were out I made Matt drop me off at Ulta.  My plan had been to get  a few samples to try.  However, once I got to Ulta, I quickly…

I’m not sold

A couple weeks ago while getting my haircut I asked my stylist about makeup.  She does hair and makeup on the side so I figured she would be a good person to talk to about foundation.  I told her what I was looking for and she hands down recommended Bobbi Brown.  I went to the Bobbi Brown website and found her Skin Foundation.  With almost 600 reviews and a 4.7 star rating I knew I had to try this.  The…

You know I love mascara right? Well I do! I’ve always had pretty eyelashes and I want my mascara to make them look even better. For months now, Loreal’s Power Volume Collagen mascara has been my go to. You can find my review here.  A few weeks ago mom and I were out shopping and we ran to Ulta.  She wanted something to make her eyelashes grow and in the process we found Revlon’s Lash Potion mascara.  I grabbed a tube…

Olay CC Cream

Olay CC Cream

I feel like I’ve done a lot of makeup posts lately but I keep buying new stuff.  🙂  Last weekend while Matt and I were at Costco I picked up some Olay CC Cream.  It was basically buy one get one free. I know I’ve raved on here about the Olay Total Effects Cream but Olay is really nailing it!  The CC Cream is  basically just like the Total Effects as far as consistency goes only I got the light…

A few months ago I mentioned my new makeup routine.  I am still totally digging this combo but in the past month or so I’ve added something else to my skin care regime.  I added Cod Liver Oil capsules.  Of course, I stumbled on this little gem on pinterest one day (apparently this was something I saw, read and did not pin.)  Anyway, I thought what the hell so I ran to the vitamin store and picked up a bottle.  The bottle…
