Zoya Joss

Zoya Joss is the most gorgeous neutral with a touch of pink.  I've always loved neutrals with a greyish pink undertone (that includes lip colors).  This one is no exception.  I never knew I would fall in love with a neutral this much.  I even brought it with me to a nail salon.


Zoya Kinsley

Zoya Foster is a warm mid-tone chocolate cream.   I love these types of colors during the fall and even throughout the year because it is the perfect everyday, every season neutral.

Another gorgeous color.  Rashida is the perfect dazzling ruby red with glints of red pearl.


Zoya Etta

Zoya Etta is described as a vampy cabarnet with a hint of violet micro pearl.  This is indeed such a vampy color, perfect for short nails during the fall (hint: Halloween!).


Zoya Ripley
Zoya Ripley

Zoya Ripley is a red based purple cream.  This is my least favorite from the collection as I already have a lot of colors like this.  However, if you don't have one yet, this is a must-have - such a pretty color that can be worn year-round.

Zoya Michaela

Zoya Michaela is described as a dusty purple taupe cream.  I love purples and dusty taupes, so this is right up my alley.

Zoya Elliot is a blackened peacock blue cream.  This reminds me of a much-coveted MAC nail polish from many years ago that was limited edition.  This is such a nice blue color, both on the tips or the toes.

Zoya Ashton

Zoya Ashton is described as a black tourmaline with a scattered silver effect.  Another fave for me.

All in all, I think this is one of the prettiest fall collections that Zoya has ever released.  I have sooo many favorites!  Joss, Ashton, Briar, Margaret. Rashida, Kinsley, are all calling my name.

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

IT's Your Skin But Better IT Cosmetics's CC+ Color Correcting Cream Duo + Brush Collection

IT''s here again, the much awaited IT Cosmetics' QVC Today's Special Value for July 2019!  To be honest, though, I just LOVE the fact that they brought back the original CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream.  Don't get me wrong, I love the other variants like the Matte and the Illuminating, but for me the original is always the best.

This kit includes the following:

Heavenly Luxe Bye Bye Foundation Brush

-Two (2) 1.08 fl. oz tubes of Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+

-Heavenly Luxe Bye Bye Foundation Brush No. 22

Here are the individual products and my thoughts on these!


IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Bye Bye Foundation Brush No. 22
IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Bye Bye Foundation Brush No. 22

The IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Bye Bye Foundation Brush No. 22 is so dense, full and soft.  I usually don't use brushes for my foundation, but I realized that this dense brush really packs a punch even if you use very little product.  It also buffs the product well into the skin for a smooth, even, seamless finish.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+
IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+



This product has color-correcting full coverage, skincare and anti-aging SPF 50+ broad-spectrum sunscreen. It’s formulated with hydrolyzed collagen, peptides and hyaluronic acid.  I am surprised that a color collecting "cc cream" actually has really good coverage.  I was used to those CC creams that hardly have any coverage.  I love how seamless this looks on the skin, and yet feels and looks very natural.  I am 100% honest when I say that I use this as my go-to everyday foundation.  It covers really well and yet gives a nice, even, smooth, natural finish.

I especially love that this product has built-in sunscreen. I use retinoids so I make sure that I slather sunscreen to protect my sun-sensitive skin. I apply a separate sunscreen underneath my makeup, but the sunscreen with the CC cream is an added bonus. The cc+ cream contains peptides, niacinamide, and hydrolyzed collagen, and gives very buildable, color-correcting coverage.

Here's the best part. Again, This set is now Today's Special Value on QVC. It is available right now for $49.98 or 6 easy pays of only $8.33 each! (Item Number A372255)

And don't worry, even after this today, Friday, 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 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 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.
