The SUPER SIZE CC+ Illumination Color Correcting Illuminating Full Coverage Cream SPF 50+ (a whopping 2.53 fl. oz) compared to the regular sized version

SUPER SIZE CC+ Illumination Color Correcting Illuminating Full Coverage Cream SPF 50+ in Light, Medium, With Flash


SUPER SIZE CC+ Illumination Color Correcting Illuminating Full Coverage Cream SPF 50+ in Light


SUPER SIZE CC+ Illumination Color Correcting Illuminating Full Coverage Cream SPF 50+ in Light, blended

In this kit, you will get the Supersize CC+ Illumination with SPF 50, but I am comparing it to the regular size of the CC cream.  As you can see, the SUPER SIZE CC+ Illumination Color Correcting Illuminating Full Coverage Cream SPF 50+ that comes in this set is a Supersize CC+.  It is indeed a great value and you get your money's worth.  This is my favorite CC cream (or even out of all BB creams) that I've tried, because many of the CC/BB creams have very little coverage.  This is a product that is Full Coverage and really hides my imperfections and blends into the skin seamlessly.

Wearing SUPER SIZE CC+ Illumination Color Correcting Illuminating Full Coverage Cream SPF 50+ in Light

This is honestly one of my favorite everyday foundations.  It really does what it claims and illuminates the face and gives it a subtle radiance which is not over-the-top.

I am very particular about my eyebrow pencil.  I hate when it is overly waxy because it ruins the shape and appearance of my brows.  I LOVE the IT Cosmetics Brow PowerFULL Universal Volumizing Eyebrow Pencil.  It is quite stiff which I love because it really shapes and contours the brows, and it is not overly waxy, which is great because I hate wax residue on my brows. It doesn't look natural and just ruins the entire look.  The IT Cosmetics Brow PowerFULL Universal Volumizing Eyebrow Pencil is perfect for shaping and structuring your brows, and the angled tip is great for filling in the hairs.

IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment in Honey

IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment in Honey is a new shade of an otherwise cult classic product.  This lip treatment makes the lips really soft and moisturized without making it super glossy.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting Brush
IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting Brush 

The Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting Brush is a nice dome-head brush that is the perfect companion of the CC+ Cream Illumination Color Correcting Illuminating Full Coverage Cream. The Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting Brush reminds me of my kabuki on a stick which is my go-to kabuki or brush to apply my cream and liquid foundations when I don't want to use the beauty blender sponge.

Again, this set is Today's Special Value on QVC. It is available right now for 6 easy pays of only $9.99 each! (Item Number A346924)

And don't worry, even after today, this item will still be available on QVC.com. If you are a fan of these makeup staples from IT Cosmetics, do not pass up this chance to snag this set.

Zoya Winter Holos Collection Swatches, Review



Zoya Winter Holos: Zoya Cadence, Zoya Everly, Zoya Brighton

I am such a sucker for holographic nail polish that I think I have more than 20% of them in my vast collection.  I am showing you three holos from Zoya that I think are not just for winter but are perfect year-round.

Zoya Brighton
Zoya Brighton

Zoya Brighton
Zoya Brighton
Zoya Brighton is a beautiful full-coverage diamond holographic nude.  This is such a pretty color and would be an amazing bridal nail color.



Zoya Cadence

Zoya Cadence

Zoya Cadence is described as a full-coverage, holographic classic pink.  It is very girly and would be a great spring and summer color.


Zoya Everly

Zoya Everly 

Zoya Everly
Zoya Everly
Zoya Everly is described as a full-coverage, diamond holographic fuchsia red.  It is not as bright as the red creams but this is still quite pretty.

I used to just like linear holos (the holographic polish that has that linear "flame-like" line) as opposed to the scattered holographic polishes such as these Zoya holos.  However, I really like how sparkly these are on the nails, and just as pretty as the linear holos.  I would definitely snag them in a heart beat if I didn't already have them, just because holos are like palate-cleansers to me and are a nice break from the usual classic creams.

These holographic polishes are also $10 a pop and are available at leading salons nationwide or at the Zoya website.

Zoya Spring 2019 Innocence Collection Swatches, Review


Zoya Spring 2019 Innocence Collection
Zoya Spring 2019 Innocence Collection
I am so excited to share with you the new Zoya Spring 2019 Innocence collection.  It is quite unique from Zoya's other collections as it has a beautiful polish with a somewhat different texture - shards of silver flakies mixed with dark blue glitter, but more into that later.  Here are my swatches and thoughts on the new collection.

Zoya Birch
Zoya Birch


Zoya Birch
Zoya Birch

Zoya Birch is one of my favorites from this collection because it's a marriage of two of my favorite hues - grey and lilac.  It's a greyed lilac cream that is just soooo pretty and very springy.



Zoya Agnes
Zoya Agnes
Zoya Agnes is a warm-toned softened blush cream that looks very pretty and clean on the nails.  This will make a very nice office or job interview color.


 Zoya Fern

Zoya Fern
 Zoya Fern

Zoya Fern

Zoya Fern is an absolute beauty!  It is described as a sage with a warm pearl accent.  The flashes of gold are very eye-catching and just so pretty.  Also one of my faves from this collection.

Zoya Arie

Zoya Arie
Zoya Arie
Zoya Arie is a deep dusty periwinkle in full cream coverage formula.  The formula of this one is amazing.  It can be opaque in one coat but I use two to be perfect.

Zoya Evette
Zoya Evette

Zoya Evette
Zoya Evette

Zoya Evette is a red-based purple cream that is also full-coverage.  It is described as a softened grape.  I think this is the brightest of the bunch and is also perfect for spring.

Zoya Theo
Zoya Theo


Zoya Theo
Zoya Theo


Ahh, Theo!  My most favorite polish from this collection!  It's a beautiful textured polish with shards of silver flakies mixed with dark blue glitter.  It's quite unique and the irregular shapes of the silver flakies are what make this polish my absolute fave - it's very edgy and innocent at the same time (aptly suits the name of the collection).  

All in all, I am loving the colors from this collection.  Faves are Theo, Birch, and Fern.  These retail for $10 a pop and are available at all leading salons nationwide and on the Zoya website.

Zoya Holiday 2018 Jubilee Collection
Zoya Holiday 2018 Jubilee Collection
Zoya Holiday 2018 is a nice collection of brights, neutrals and some unusual textures like crackle and pixie dust textured polishes.  Here are my swatches and thoughts on this collection.

Zoya Kateri
Zoya Kateri
Zoya Kateri


Zoya Kateri is described as a full coverage midnight brown cream.  It is like dark coffee to me.  I love it because it is very rich and just perfect for the winter season.


Zoya Leigh

Zoya Leigh is a nice peachy-beige cream.  Very basic and yet looks really nice and clean on the nails.


Zoya Carson
Zoya Carson

Zoya Carson
Zoya Carson

Zoya Carson is one of my favorites from this collection.  It is described as a full coverage muted nude pink cream.  It is a palate-cleanser in a sea of glitters and festive reds and dark hues this season.


Zoya Astrid
Zoya Astrid

Zoya Astrid
Zoya Astrid

Zoya Astrid

Zoya Astrid reminds me of the character Astrid from the book and movie "Crazy Rich Asians".  Very opulent, glitzy yet classy.  I think they probably named this one after the character too, given the timing of the release.  It is described as a liquid gold foil.



Zoya Taryn

Zoya Taryn

Zoya Taryn is described as a fiery fuchsia micro-shimmer.  It has flashes of purple and silver that is quite interesting.

Zoya Maxine

Zoya Maxine is my absolute favorite from this collection.  It is unabashedly bright and festive and in-your-face.  It is described as a rich red cream with perfectly balanced undertone - neither too warm nor too cool.



Zoya Allison

Zoya Allison is described as a full-coverage plum-toned ruby cream.  This has the same formula as Maxine - rich, vibrant and delicious.

Zoya Chiara

Zoya Chiara is a full-coverage blue-based purple.  I am a sucker for purples so I am really liking this.


Zoya Danica

Zoya Danica


Zoya Danica is described as a full-coverage rich deep teal cream - I liken this to hunter green.  Very deep, wintery and rich. 


Zoya Juniper
Zoya Juniper


Zoya Juniper

Zoya Juniper

Zoya Juniper is a sparking teal textured pixie dust - it has nice glowy bits of silver and blue.


Zoya Leopard Spots

Zoya Leopard Spots over Zoya Carson

Zoya Leopard Spots
Zoya Leopard Spots
Zoya Leopard Spots is my least favorite from the collection as I am not a fan of crackle polishes.  It is designed to be layered over another polish for a shatter/leopard spot effect.

All in all, this is another solid collection from Zoya.  My favorites are Zoya Maxine, Zoya Carson, Zoya Allison and the beautiful Zoya Astrid.  This collection retails for $10 a polish and is available at leading salons nationwide and zoya.com.
