New! The JessxIttse Glambition Collection Blush and Highlight Palette - Photographs and Swatches

//products were provided to me for editorial consideration//all opinions and words are my own and wholly uninfluenced by the company or PR//referral links from which I receive no benefit are provided// When I learned that fellow beauty blogger and social media goddess Jess, the brain and heart behind  Love for Lacquer  had teamed up with cosmetics company  Ittse  (pronounced it-see) to create a blush and highlight collection I was so excited for her. Jess is a wife, mom, blogger and she is building a social media empire, on her way to total world domination. It makes perfect sense that she would pad her already impressive resume with her own custom makeup collection . I am so thrilled that Jess included me in this launch and I can't wait to show you what arrived, yesterday.

Snacking on Clinique: Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm

Image
//affiliate links that don't cost you anything extra and help to support my blog are in use//  I was shopping on Sephora's website, one day (I have to shop on Sephora's website because they won't build me a store, where I live) and before I checked out, I went site sifting for bonus goodies and so forth. In the Rewards Bazaar was a 500 point box of little Clinique yummies, one of which was a snack sized jar of  Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm . I've been intrigued about this product for a while, now so I sacrificed some points and tossed the box in my cart.

When StriVectin sent over their  Frizz Control Line  for me to test drive, I was delighted. Formulated with specialized ingredients like their NA114 technology and a Hydrosmooth Anti Frizz Complex, StriVectin Hair Frizz Control hair care is created to lock in moisture, replenish strands and reduce porosity to smooth and calm that wild frizz.

//product provided to me for editorial consideration// Natural Deodorant is something that I've avoided using for many years. I've tried it in the past, only to have the stuff fail me terribly at the worst possible time, leaving me ill inclined to ever try it, again.

Makeup Wars - My Affordable Skin Care Favorites for Dry/Very Dry and Maturing Skin

Image
//samples sent for editorial consideration//self purchased items//affiliate links that cost you nothing extra but pay me a small commission and help to support my blog are in use// This week, Makeup Wars presents our favorite drugstore and affordable skin care! Skin is our largest organ and it requires specialized care. Care that, it turns out doesn't have to cost a fortune. While spendy skin care is a lovely, luxe indulgence and I admit, one of my favorite beauty experiences, I regularly use and get good, solid results from high quality, affordable skin care, much of which I buy at my local drugstore, Ulta Beauty and from Amazon. Today, I have some of my favorite affordable skin care items for face and body. This is going to be a long post... I seem to not be able to edit myself when I'm pulling products for Makeup Wars posts so settle in and get comfy, you're going to be here, a while.
