It’s All About Your Favorites Review and Photos

It’s All About Your Favorites

It’s All About Your Favorites is something that I received to review and is scheduled to debut on QVC Saturday, March 18, 2017 at midnight (ET) and will be offered for one day only from midnight (ET) until 11:59 p.m. (PT) that day as the TSV. HOWEVER!! Due to the fact that they’ve had so many requests, they’re having a presale starting today, March 16 at 12:01 AM! 

Here is what is in the It’s All About Your Favorites Collection:

1. Only Time This Year that is this available: Supersize CC+ Illumination with SPF 50+

Long before the big bloggers began writing about this, I was calling this my favorite. Here’s the link to my blog article: There is no glitter or shimmer, this multitasking product is your full
coverage, anti-aging skincare and SPF 50+ broad-spectrum physical sunscreen
sun protection—all in one step. For all skin types! http://moxiereviews.com/2013/07/22/the-best-cc-cream-spf-50-it-cosmetics/

 

Here’s a photos of all the products that you will receive:

2. Je Ne Sais Quoi-New Shade! is one of the many products that I absolutely love, and keep in my handbag! Why? I find that it gives my lips a natural flush of color, and being a busy mom and wife, it’s great during the day or night, and for whatever the occasion. Trust me, it’s usually not fancy! It’s perfect for anyone that wants a lip stick, lip balm, lip gloss and lip stain in one product. A true multitasker! This time it is in a brand-new rose shade! I live in New England and we just had a Blizzard, so I’m so thankful that I’ve been able to have this treatment that contains essential butters and oils, and antioxidants for super soft, incredibly smooth lips. And yes, your lips will flush to your perfect shade of rosy pink.

3. Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara:

Does it transform your lashes? It does. I didn’t need any more than one coat on my lashes, and a second coat did make my lashes look like I had on long, very dramatic false eyelashes! The only thing that I might recommend is to do what I had to–and that’s wipe off some of the formula from the bristles, as I don’t think you need to lay it on so thick with this great formula.

The mascara is amazing because it did hold up my lashes up all day, and I have to comment again that I just love the incredible super black color!

I believe it was Jamie Kern herself who pointed out during the launch of the It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara that when you’re tired, your eyes show it. And, when your lashes are held up, you really look so much more wide awake, and more youthful. The price is great, and it’s terrific for those with sensitive eyes.

Is the It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara the best It Cosmetics mascara? Well, it’s phenomenal, but I also like other mascaras that I have purchased from It Cosmetics because they also are great in the ways that they work their magic. However, it is my personal favorite! Here is the link to my original post: http://moxiereviews.com/2016/03/21/it-cosmetics-superhero-elastic-stretch-volumizing-mascara-review/

Everytime I receive a box, whether it’s paid for by me, or in this case, sent by the company, it’s in perfect condition, and well wrapped!

4. Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush:

This brush is an It Cosmetics bestseller for a number of reasons! While many people would consider this to be a brush that has to be in their makeup bag, I honestly think that as long as you have it some where in your stash, you’re all set! Since it’s from It Cosmetics,  of course, it has super soft brush hair, and a custom-cut brush head.  This is included because it will help you to achieve the look of airbrushed coverage with the CC+ Illumination.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection is a four piece cruelty free skincare collection. This is a QVC Today’s Special Value, and it’s actually a first-ever skincare TSV! This will debut on QVC today, Saturday, January 14, 2017 at midnight (ET). It will be offered for one day only until 11:59 p.m. (PT) on Saturday.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

Let’s start with the Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream. It Cosmetics advertises it as a solution for a smoother, brighter-looking eye area.  This comes in a 0.5 oz jar. That’s right, a jar. Insert a sad face here! I really am not a fan of skincare products in a jar, but I totally understand why this can’t be in a tube. It is way to thick.  When I wake up in the very early hours every morning (with dogs and children), I’m tired, and my eyes look very tired. So, I’m excited to give this a real trial. However, since I haven’t even used it for a full two weeks, I can’t say what the long-term results will be.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

However, I do like the feeling of the cream under my eyes. It feels very cool when applied, and it definitely quickly smooths out the dry lines becuase it’s so moisturizing. It can be used both in the morning and at night, although I find I need it most in the morning. The cream has a pretty blue tint, and it’s infused with caffeine, vitamin C, collagen and peptides.  Due to it’s thickness, a little cream is all that is needed.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

The next product in the It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection is Confidence in a Cream. This can be used on all skin types and can be used in the morning and evening. Unfortunately, while I love that this is in a big jar–I’m also sad that it’s housed in a jar. Make sure you wash your hands every time before you put your fingers into the jar.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

I do love that Confidence in a Cream has a very smooth, creamy texture. When applied, I felt that it was incredibly moisturizing, and my skin looked great. It may or may not be an issue for you, but to my nose, there was a citrus scent to the Confidence in a Cream that I felt lingered on my skin.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

New in this Collection is Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50+. This is the first time ever for an anti-aging solid serum foundation. This is advertised as a full-coverage foundation, and you choose your shade. There are seven shades from which to choose. Simply buff it onto your skin using the Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush. Or, you can use the sponge that is included in the compact. I suppose that it depends on how heavy-handed you are, so I found that this Foundation could be applied with a sheer coverage, and then built up as you wish.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

Again, this had the same citrus scent as the Confidence in a Cream, and that may or may not be an issue for you. I live in New England where one day it can be minus three degrees Fahrenheit, then later in the week, it can be a “balmy” forty degrees! Therefore, I’m not sure this is the best foundation for me. I feel that if I didn’t have dry skin issues it might have worked, and maybe I just need to spend more time applying a thicker layer of moisurizer beforehand. However, if this isn’t a problem for you, then this Foundation may be just what you’re looking for!

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

I love It Cosmetics brushes, and the new Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush is another winner! This is a custom-cut brush head for an airbrushed look.

Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush

QVC Item #A287731 is $79.96 (with free shipping and handling), and sold separately, it would price out to be $182.00. Let me know if you’re going to order this, and your thoughts.

Metallic Nail Polish Collection from Ani Michele

Metallic Nail Polish Collection from Ani Michele

Ani Michele has a new Metallic Nail Polish Collection, and People’s Choice is one that I received. This is a perfect example of a true rose gold color. It is cruelty free, vegan, and also 7-Free of Chemicals. All of the Ani Michele polishes are made in the United States. I also wanted to do some nail art, so I decided to add a snowflake using another shade from the Metallic Nail Polish Collection: Wishing on a Star Sparkle. This is a beautiful shade of silver!

Metallic Nail Polish Collection

Ani Michele is also cruelty free, vegan, and 7-free of Chemicals. I’d like to take a moment to explain what 7-free means. Not only does the polish not have the three common chemicals found in many nail polishes: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, but it also does not have four other chemicals: Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, TPHP and Xylene.  

Metallic Nail Polish Collection

So, who is the person behind ani Michele? Ani Sousamian is the founder and owner. Since early childhood, Ani has had a passion and infatuation for nail polish. The ani MICHELE lacquer is different from the “typical” polish you would purchase. The list of differences is large. It’s cruelty free, vegan, and made in the United States. Depending on the shade, it’s either five free of chemicals, or it’s seven free! Also, Ani wants her beautiful lacquer bottles to,“inspire, empower and compliment each women’s beauty and personality, inside and out.”

I also love that Ani believes in staying positive and hoping for the best. Her inspirational motto supports that:  

 

“Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.”

I think ani MICHELE polish is fantastic. It is fast drying, long lasting, and has a fabulous glossy sheen. Yes, you absolutely should add a top coat so the polish will last longer. However, both shades, People’s Choice and Wishing On a Star Sparkle, are beautiful without one. I like the look and feel of the glass bottle, and the brush is just the right width for painting my fingernails. Both of these shades from the Metaillic Nail Polish Collection are highly recommended!

Metallic Nail Polish Collection

Ani wants her ani MICHELE polish to be a reminder to live a positive karmic lifestyle, feel good about yourself, and make a positive impact on those around you.

Stay tuned for next Monday’s manicure, where I will share another shade from the Metallic Nail Polish Collection.

Get your own ani MICHELE nail lacquer on the website, and see the other fabulous shades that are available.

Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd Review & Photos

Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd

Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd and My Private Cabana were two shades sent to me. The Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd is such an amazing shade of polish. The deep chocolate shade has beautiful, sparkling caramel flecks. Yes, I’m a very pale gal, but I believe that it will look great with all skin tones.

I’ve shot the photos of the Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd during the beautiful New England fall weather. I have two coats of Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd, and although My Private Cabana is not specifically a stamping polish, it worked well used on my ring finger. I added a top coat so I could wear the polish as many days as possible.

I hope you’ve read my other posts about Lauren B. Beauty, a cruelty free, vegan company. If not, here’s what you need to know. The owner is Lauren B., who has always loved nail polish. When she was little, she would frequently set up her own nail salon in the garage and paint her grandmother’s (and other family members’) nails. By the age of fifteen, she was obsessing over the newest nail trends so much that she would put nail polish shades in color groups and, during the hot summers, seek out Cape Cod Massachusetts convenience stores while everyone else was at the beautiful beaches!

Eventually, Lauren B. started her own brand of nail polish without the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. Hence, Lauren B. Beauty is a five-free nail polish. In addition, Lauren B. Beauty polish is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

I love the brushes that Lauren B. Beauty uses; they contain twice the amount of bristles that are common on typical polishes, and each of the bristles are pre-lacquered. All of the bottles have a special over-cap, which means you can use either a square handle, or a cylindrical one for more control. The Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd glided on incredibly smoothly.

As a busy mom, wife, and being owned by two big dogs I’m thankful that the Lauren B. Espresso on 3rd is very glossy, before adding a top coat. My nails dried very quickly, and due to the formula, I had over 4 days without anything more than very minor chips. 

Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd

I highly recommend the Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd and My Private Cabana shades!

For more information and current pricing, check out the Lauren B. website.

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer Review and Photos

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer is another cruelty free and vegan nail polish that I received from Inkk’s new Winter Arctic Collection. There are five colors in this limited edition collection, and they are now available for purchase on the Inkk website.

 Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer

Ashley Morgan is the talented Creator and President of Inkk, and in a previous interview she said that she, “…wanted to capture the feeling of winter, arctic and chill, and steer away from traditional Holiday colors like red, green, and orange….Ashley also, “wanted to have a variety of light and dark and choose colors that represent winter as well as wear well with other colors (for fashion).

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer

The photos in this post include one shade from the Winter Arctic Collection: the beautiful Arctic Glacier; and there is Desert Treasures, one of the lovely House of Inkk’s shades. The third nail lacquer that I used was Francesca, from the Canto Inferno Collection. Canto Inferno was the very first collection from Inkk. It represents what the House of Inkk believes in: stories told in color and communication in color.

Shown below are the bottles of the shades that I used. I love the beauty of the design, which so elegantly captures the name Inkk, from an octopus inking.  Each bottle holds a large amount of polish: 18ml.

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer

I was thinking that the best way for me to describe Inkk Arctic Glacier was a dark teal. But, it’s much more complex and beautiful than just that. I came across a photo on Instagram, and I thought it perfectly captured the mood. It looks cold, could be winter, and it’s beautiful. Maybe there’s an octopus in that section of the sea!

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer

I hope that you’ve had a chance to read about this newish (2013) cruelty free and vegan nail polish brand that is five-free of the chemicals Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor. 

Inkk Arctic Glacier is easy to work with, and even when I was exhausted but had to keep redoing my nail art, every single time the polish applied easily, and gave a beautiful, smooth appearance. Although I always recommend you add a top coat, it is shiny without one. If you don’t like the shades that are on the website, then it’s very easy, and a lot of fun, to create your own shade.

Here’s the link to check out the website and either make your own shade, or purchase one of the many Inkk Lacquers.

The only downside is that Inkk Arctic Glacier is one of the five shades in the limited edition Winter Arctic Collection.
