Glow your way through Cyber Monday!

Happy Thanksgiving beauties!  Are you ready?  I know I’m not.  But I also know that you can look your best with some of my all time favorite products for the holidays!

As you know, I’m a die-hard IT Girl, and I also love a deal.  Well I’m here to tell you that Jamie and her team have come up with a screaming deal of a doorbuster to celebrate the shopping season!

From Black Friday through Cyber Monday, you can nab the special Hello bright Eyes & Hello Light Illuminizer Powder for the little bitty price tag of $39.50.  Now that’s a $64 value, and frankly – having tried and used both of these products, it’s a deal you cannot pass up.  I know I will be stocking up.

If you have the Vitality Face Disc that came in last summer’s TSV you know that this Hello Light Illumnizer ads a gorgeous moondrop glow to your complexion.  Made with Drops of Light technology, this beautiful illuminizing powder gives you that lit from within glow.  I absolutely love it, and use it everyday.  In fact, I will share with you that every time I wear Hello Light, people notice the difference.  What’s not to like about that?  The micronized pigments of light are packed with IT Cosmetic’s signature collagen and vitamin infused ingredients, but no talc.  Sweep the Hello Light across your forehead, on top of your cheekbones, and anywhere else you want to highlight!  My favorite technique is to use IT’s bronzer below my cheekbones, and the Hello Light just above.  WOW!

In addition to the Hello Light, you will also get the Hell Bright Bright Eyes pencil duo.  These silk infused anti-aging brightening pencils use micronized pigments to make your face look lifted, awake and bright.  You can use them on your eyes to open them up, your inner rim to make you look more awake, those pesky 11 lines (which I personally have and try to hide every day), or anywhere that you want to lift, brighten and make more youthful.  With no pulling or tugging, these silk infused pencils glide like butter and have all the collagen, Vitamin A, C, and E that you would expect from an IT Cosmetics product.  I use them in the inner corner and my 11 lines.  This includes Bright Eyes in two colors!

If you didn’t pick up Hello Bright Eyes at the Friends & Family Sale, now is your chance!  To celebrate the giving season, I will be giving away one Bye Bye Pores Finishing Powder to a lucky reader!  Use the RaffleCopter form below to enter, and GOOD LUCK!

Happy Thanksgiving all!

A Glowing tarte

If you have read my blog at all, or my facebook posts, you know that it’s no secret that I love tarte cosmetics.  I love everything about them, from the cheek stains to the Amazonian clay blushes.

Recently, I was lucky enough to pick up a new kit from QVC on preorder, which has more delicious goodies in it!  This kit won’t be on the air until this weekend, but the Glow Your Way to Gorgeous Collection is – just – gorgeous!

The Glow Collection contains:

What is it: An eight-piece color collection featuring waterproof and long-wearing must-haves designed to give you everything you need to glow your way to gorgeous as you discover the skin-balancing benefits of tarte’s blend of Amazonian clay and nature’s miracle–pure maracuja oil.

With this convenient Auto-Delivery plan, receive your first set promptly, with new sets in seasonal colors arriving in October 2011 and February 2012, for a total of three shipments, as long as you remain in the program.

This kit contains:

  • Maracuja Creaseless Concealer – this is a new product, and is QVC only until next year.  It’s much different than the Calming Concealer, which comes in a stick.  While I like the texture of the Calming Concealer, it really doesn’t provide great coverage.  This new Creaseless Concealer however, is thick and rich and covers it all.  It’s based on the \wonder child of the Amazon, maracuja oil – or passionfruit oil – which is said to have properties that will make you look like Marilyn Monroe.  Or at least they tout it as such.

While I really like this concealer, it is SERIOUSLY full coverage so be prepared.  I ordered Medium because that’s what I wear in tarte foundation, but it might e a touch dark.  I will keep playing with it.

  • 12-Hour Wear Clay Blush in Peaceful, a soft rose.  I currently own three of these blushes and i love love love them.  I have the Glisten, form the first 8th Wonder of the Amazon collection (a previous AD shipment), and recently purchased Blushing Bride and Blissful recently.  Love!
  • Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow in Shimmering Taupe – I haven’t used any of tarte’s cream eyeshadows, I’ve been playing a lot with otehr brands recently.  I’m still trying to work with them, but I really like this one.
  • Amazonian Clay SmolderEYES eyeliner in Fig, a plum brown- WOOO!  a perfect perfect purple brown.  It doesn’t budge!  I love the shade, it shimmers with gold light, and is a deep plummy brown.
  • Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara in Black- this is my GO TO mascara so i’m happy to have a back up!
  • Lip Luster in Sweet, a peach pink-I now own four of these!  LOVE!
  • Blush brush
  • Shadow brush
  • Sharpener
  • Makeup bag

You have the option of ordering this on Auto-Delivery, which will bring you new collection sin October and February.  I always order on AD, because I never want to be the odd man out if I miss a collection!  You can of course, cancel or delay a shipment at any time.  You can also return it if you hate it, and still get the next shipment.

This kit has a retail value of over $150, so to get it at the preview price of $50 is a STEAL.

Do you like tarte?  GET IT!  Get it NOW!  You won’t be sorry!  The single shipmen PREVIEW is $49.92  Auto Delivery is now, October and February.   The regular item is HERE.  Happy glossing!

PS did I mention that you get a Park Avenue Princess Bronzer and a deluxe sample of the tarte Maracuja Oil too?  Yeah.  Well you do!
