Zoya Eleni

Zoya Eleni is a beautiful shade of like a lighter robin's egg blue cream.  This is described as a blue cream.  Super summery and it really makes the nails look so clean.

Zoya Bee is my favorite from this collection!  It's the quintessential hot pink cream!  I love pinks on both the tips and the toes, especially this shade - just perfect for the summer.

Zoya Rie

Zoya Rie is a pretty cool-toned magenta purple.  This is your bet if you don't want hot pinks but still want color on your nails.

Zoya Walker

Zoya Dallas is a glitter topper.  It has large white hexagonal glitter, silver glitter and smaller white glitter in a clear base.  I am not a fan of glitters anymore, so this has to be my least favorite.  But I will use this if I want a really eye-catching accent nail.

Zoya Joey

Zoya Joey is so clean and very posh-looking.  It is described as a warm light pink cream.

Zoya Tessa is a soft peach-toned salmon with gold and coral micro-shimmer.  This one is another winner.  I love that Zoya veered from the usual cream and made this with shimmer.

 Zoya Keira is described as a sandy taupe with copper micro-shimmer.  This has more of a fall vibe to me, but I love the shimmer because it tends to hide imperfections in the nail look.

 Zoya Marcy

Zoya Liza is a beautiful watermelon red that can be worn year-round.  It's such a classic, timeless color.

All in all, I am really liking the shades in this collection.  I like the mix of creams, shimmers, and glitter topper.  My favorites are definitely Dacey, Liza, Walker, Marcey, Joey.

Zoya nail polishes retail for $10 and can be bought at leading salons nationwide or on the Zoya website.

May 2019 IT Cosmetics QVC Today's Special Value

May 2019 IT Cosmetics QVC Today's Special Value


IT''s here again, the much awaited IT Cosmetics' QVC Today's Special Value for May 2019!  To be honest, though, although this collection is compact, I love the fact that IT Cosmetics included the most basic and yet most important face essentials - the CC Cream matte, their AMAZING mascara, the Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment that makes lips so soft and supple, and the requisite makeup brush (although this time, it's wonderfully angled).

This kit includes the following:

-1.08-fl oz Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil-Free Matte SPF 40 Full Coverage Cream
-0.3-fl oz Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
-0.11-oz Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Lip Treatment in Rose
-Heavenly Skin Skin-Hugging Foundation Brush

Here are the individual products and my thoughts on these!

The Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Lip Treatment is one of my favorites from this kit, just because I am always looking out for a good balm that will make my lips soft and supple since I use a lot of matte liquid lipsticks.  This one really does the job.   This lip treatment makes the lips really soft and moisturized without making it super glossy.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Hugging Foundation Brush No. 707

NEW! IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Hugging Foundation Brush No. 707

This new makeup brush has a very unique and interesting shape.  It has a unique brush head that literally hugs the contours of your face to seamlessly apply your CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte and even bronzers!


IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

Seriously and honestly - The IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara is probably in the Top 2 Best Mascaras of all time for me.  Really.  I have super straight, short lashes, so this is a godsend.  It makes my sparse short lash hairs grow literally before my eyes and make them look decently lush.  This kit is worth if just for this mascara.

IT Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil Free Matte Full Coverage Cream

IT Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil Free Matte Full Coverage Cream

The IT Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil Free Matte Full Coverage Cream is great for those who want a seamless, matte finish.  I like my foundation with a little bit of glow, but this is perfect for those who have combination to oily skin and want something to control the oilies.

This new CC+ Oil Free Matte contains peptides, niacinamide, and hydrolyzed collagen, and gives very buildable, color-correcting coverage.

Again, this set is on presale today through Friday, and will be on Today's Special Value on QVC. It is available right now for $52.98 or 6 easy pays of only $8.83 each! (Item Number A372237)

And don't worry, even after this Saturday 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.

Luminess Air AirSupremacy Compressor-Free Airbrush Makeup Look and Review

Press sample











Have you ever dreamed of having an airbrushed makeup look without the hassle of using an airbrush gun or compressor?  Many people love the flawless, seamless look of airbrush makeup, but are intimidated with the use of an airbrush gun.  I personally think that there might be a learning curve in the use of an airbrush compressor, but it gets easier with each use.  However, some people don't like the need for an airbrush compressor, which they feel is cumbersome.  Wouldn't it be nice to have a product that applies, feels and looks like airbrush makeup, but without the use of a compressor?

Luminess Air has come up with the new AirSupremacy Airbrush Makeup - their new compressor-free airbrush makeup system!
