    Forever Young Summer Looks @itcosmetics

    IT Cosmetics has a few new products for summer and since I have never used this brand before, I was really looking forward to see what kind of products they had.


    1. Vitality Flush Stain Stick Lip & Cheek Reviver

    This was a standout product for me because of the texture. It was very smooth and glided on easily and you only need to use a little on your cheeks to get a sun-kissed look. It is very versatile and the packaging is really nice. If I was going out and can only bring one product with me, I would bring this one because it is versatile and the color is soft enough that you really don’t even need a mirror to apply it.

    This unique Vitality Flush Stain Stick Lip & Cheek Reviver from IT Cosmetics contains rich butters and essential oils that will nourish and condition, while allowing you to maintain your youthful glow!

    DSCN45942. LBB Waterproof Lip Liner Stain

    Lipliner is always the item I forget to use, buy and bring with me. I am such a glam and go girl that I skip a lot of steps that true make up artists follow. But when you skip steps, your makeup will not last the night even if you iPhone battery does. The LBB water proof liner stain is an all nighter. (in a good way)

    Beat the heat this summer with the new Your Lips But better Waterproof Lip Liner Stain. With Peptides and Vitamins A, C, and E, this must have liner will plump your lips.

    3. Vitality Lip Blush™ Hydrating Gloss Stain

    I am such a Lipgloss snob and I have over 100 different ones. This product for me was just average. I like that it was not sticky in texture but the color was not my favorite for this season.

    IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain which is infused with nine butter and oils that will pamper your lips without that giving them that sticky feeling. This lightweight serum repairs and protect while offering a beautiful pigmented shine.

    4. Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe™ Vanity Brush Set

    Love Love Love this!  This brush set comes in the best little carrier and it has all the essential brush you need to create an elegant look without too much fuss. The brushes are high quality enough that you will get a polished look but not so expensive that you are worrying about someone stealing them on set or backstage. I like this because it is compact, useful and sophisticated!

    Feather your way to happiness with this 6-pc Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe Vanity Brush Set made from 100 percent Ultra Plush, Cruelty Free Bristles.

    The Power of Copper @OsmoticsBeauty

    A groundbreaking anti-aging collection that harnesses the power of advanced copper peptide technology to deliver visibly younger-looking skin. Trusted for delivering first-to-market innovations and breakthrough technologies, Osmotics Cosmeceuticals works with the country’s top university medical centers to develop potent formulations using only the purest, most premium quality ingredients. With the Blue Copper 5 collection, the experts behind Osmotics have harnessed the power of copper, an essential mineral for skin health, to bring you an anti-aging skincare collection that offers unparalleled results.

    Formulated with copper peptide technology used extensively in wound care, the Blue Copper 5 collection strengthens skin against signs of aging while improving its overall luminosity. Copper is combined with Osmotics’ exclusive collagen-boosting 5-chain peptide to create this advanced technology that works at a cellular level to defend skin against visible signs of aging by improving firmness and elasticity. Osmotics was the first to identify the skincare benefits of copper peptide technology and apply it to the cosmeceutical arena by developing an anti-aging formula featuring the technology. The innovation is yet another example of Osmotics’ pioneering approach to skincare and first-to-market technology development, as copper has since become a category unto itself in the skincare segment.

    The award-winning Blue Copper 5 collection includes the following products to ensure visibly younger-looking skin from head to toe.

    Firming Elasticity Repair: Specially formulated to encourage skin to act younger, this silky-smooth cream increases
    firmness, elasticity and radiance. Enriched with essential vitamins and nutrients that stimulate reparative processes and collagen synthesis to heal damaged skin and prevent signs of aging, this luxe cream enhances skin with a luminous glow. Ideal for even sensitive skin types, it evens out skin tone and calms redness and irritation associated with Rosacea and facial peels.

    Firming Eye Repair: Diminish fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles while firming, tightening and lifting the area around
    the eyes. This multi-benefit formula also smoothes crepe-y eyelids to help keep makeup in place and increase wear time. An ultra-soothing, rich, cream-gel, it features a potent blend of active copper, anti-aging peptides and proteins to boost collagen levels for more toned and lifted eye contours.

    7 Night Molecular Repair Treatment: You’re just a week away from radiant, glowing, ageless skin with this intensely
    reparative formulation. Developed for use over the course of seven nights, it combines the anti-aging benefits of copper with an exclusive
    extract that stimulates skin’s natural repair processes. The result? Healthier looking skin, diminished redness, fine lines and wrinkles and
    improved tone and texture. A must for anyone who has undergone an aggressive dermal procedure, or is facing changes in climate, stress or hormone levels, this treatment boosts hydration and elasticity for smooth, supple results.

    Face Lifting Serum: The ultimate solution for lifted, firm skin, this daytime essential targets sagging skin to instantly tone
    and tighten. The anti-aging benefits of copper peptide are combined with advanced topical lifting technology to deliver short- and long-term
    lifting and firming benefits while also visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with sweet almond proteins to smooth skin and Shiitake mushroom extracts to enhance skin’s support structure, it promotes healthier, younger-behaving skin for a truly rejuvenated effect.

    Age Repair Body Lift: A 3-in-1 anti-aging treatment designed to lift and firm the bust, belly and behind, this unique
    formula also reduces stretch marks up to 72%. Developed with Osmotics’ active copper, as well as two new biopeptides and plant extracts that improve skin’s texture all over the body, this silky cream promotes elasticity and collagen synthesis for smoother skin from head to toe.

    Lip and Tuck: Offering the perfect pop of color and plumping benefits, this must-have lip treatment restores lip contours
    and diminishes lines and signs of aging for a younger-looking, smoother and healthier pout. Formulated with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid to enhance fullness, moisturizing macadamia nut oil to relieve dryness, as well as copper and anti-aging peptides, it can be worn alone as a gloss or layered over lip color.
    Available Shades: Cognac, Natural, French Kiss, Golden Nectar

    Lip Savvy Product Review

    If you’ve seen me lately, you may have noticed my lips have had a pink shimmery glow to them.  That’s because I’ve been reviewing Lip Savvy lipgloss by Je’Ane ($18).

    The line includes 22 shades in two different textures (ColorGlam matte and Star Studded Shine sparkly gloss) to flatter any skin tone, plus they offer tingle-free plumping action to hydrate lips and target fine lines and wrinkles with Hyaluronic Filling Spheres™ and collagen-boosting peptides.  They also slow the aging process with a patented Complete Free Radical Protection Technology™.

    Star Studded Shine Colors
    ColorGlam Colors

    The gloss has a brush applicator, with each color available in your choice of 3 funky designs.  There are 8 designs in total (I had purple cheetah).

    I tried OMG (a Star Studded Shine color), a sparkling bright raspberry pink.  I have to admit, I’m not worrying about fine lines, nor am I in need of the plumping action, but I had an overall good experience with the product.

    THE PROS: great color, long-lasting, shimmery, pleasant smell

    THE CONS: I used it up in about a week and a half!

    kisses, Olisa

    So Glossy- Y.K lippies

    You may have bared witness to my excitement upon receiving my Yvonne Kai Lipgloss samples. When she asked me which colors I wanted to try, I knew it was a trick question; cause I had to have them all!

    Can’t wait to try them all!

    I’m a sucker for red, so naturally I tried the “Ain’t No Wifey” Lippie first.

    The color looks great. Give it a good shake and it goes on nice and easy. No yucky fragrance, stickiness or taste… Did I mention it’s paraben free??

    What do you think?

    For more details on how you can get your hands on an Yvonne Kai Lippie contact me, or Yvonne of course 🙂

    Well done Ms. Kai!

    peace, love and health
