My Five Favorite It Cosmetics Products

You may (or may not!) know that I’m currently the It Cosmetics Blogger of the Month! This is exciting for me since I’ve been absolutely obsessed with the It Cosmetics brand since discovering Bye Bye Redness last winter. Once I tried that, I wanted to try more and more of the products offered by It Cosmetics, and I’ve found very little from this brand that I don’t like.

So (although it was tough to narrow it down to just five), I wanted to share with you my five favorite It Cosmetics products!

{Bumpdate} 32 Weeks

I’m currently 32 weeks pregnant! Eeeep!

32 weeks pregnant // Glossy Blonde

If I look tired in this photo, it’s because I ended up getting a cold on Saturday and despite trying to “work through it”, it knocked me on my butt.

But anyway, my doctor’s appointments have been every two weeks now, and at 36 weeks I’ll start going every week. Things are getting REALLY close and it’s starting to go by so quickly!

Time for my 32 week pregnancy update! [Read more...]

Link Love: 10.17.14

Happy, happy Friday!

I don’t have much to tell you this week. I’ve been pretty busy and just trying to push through. But I’m glad it’s the weekend!

I love weekends in the fall. The changing leaves, pumpkin spice lattes and football make me a happy lady.

Anyway, time for some Link Love!

Esther was amazing to work with. Not only is she super sweet and fun to be around, but she’s incredibly talented as well. When I was doing my initial research for photographers for a maternity session, her portfolio blew me away and I knew immediately that I wanted to work with her. And she did not cease to amaze me!

How to Get Va-Va-Voom Lashes

Tutorial: It Cosmeticcs Tightline & Hello Lashes // Glossy Blonde

I’m always looking for the next best product that is going to give me full, va va voom lashes, as well as any liners or tricks that will make my lashes look even more luscious. I recently discovered the It Cosmetics Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer, which is a mascara-like product that will get right to the root of the lashline, giving a tightline effect and providing a base that works with mascara to make the lashes even thicker and fuller.

You can use this product three ways: (1) to give a lined effect to the lashline; (2) to tightline (line the upper waterline that sits below the lashes – this gives the lashes an even more full effect) or (3) to prime the lashes for mascara. No matter how you use it, the skinny wand will get right to the base of the lashes to give the look of a fuller lash line (with little effort)!

The formula is waterproof, so there’s no smudging or streaking, and it contains lash-conditioning ingredients including protein, biotin and vitamins that infuse and help strengthen your natural lashes. And it’s paraben-free, fragrance-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free, making it safe for sensitive eyes. [Read more...]
