Too Faced #TFNOFILTER Selfie Palette

Too Faced always seems to come out with something new and exciting.  The latest release from them is the Too Faced #TFNOFILTER Selfie Powders palette.  They are light filtering, photo-enhancing powders.  This palette includes three lightweight, finishing face powders that mimic the effects of photo filters by using light-fragmenting technology to brighten, bronze, and illuminate the skin.

The three shades included are Sunrise, Totally Toasted and Moon River.  Sunrise provides diffused warmth, Totally Toasted bronzes with a smoothing glow, and Moon River brings a soft, ethereal glow to the skin.  They are formulated with Liquiplush Technology, so basically they are a unique powder-cream hybrid powder that are seamless to apply and leave the velvety texture of a cream for a flawless appearance.  You can wear them one by one or use them all together for a look that is truly customized.

When I saw that Co-Founder Jerrod Blandino wanted to create a product so women can honestly use the #nofilter hashtag I started laughing.  Have you actually searched some of the pictures on instagram under the #nofilter hashtag?  It cracks me up!

The golden shade is one I would use as a highlight, the violet powder I wold dust all over to brighten and I would probably give myself a warm glow with the bronzy shade.

I can honestly say that these powders are super soft and apply like a dream.  These are one swipe and I can see such great pigmentation.  You can easily diffuse them with a brush and they blend out flawlessly.

The idea behind this palette is definitely fun.  I have been around since the first couple of weeks of Instagram and I have seen the filters transform and change and they are all so beautiful.  It is nice to be able to have a filtered look and be able to use the hashtag #nofilter, or better yet #TFnofilter!   You can find the Too Faced Selfie Palette online at Too Faced or at Sephora.

Tell me in the comments below:  What has you most excited about this palette?  For me it is Moon River.  I have always loved powders with a violet tone to help brighten!

Jordana Color Tint Blush Stick Review and Swatches

It is no secret that I have a love for Jordana products.  Their liquid liner has been in my beauty bag for years.  They have had the Color Tint Blush Sticks for some time now, but recently released 6 new shades.  This is a review and swatches of the new shades.

Jordana Color Tint Blush Sticks Review and Swatches

I want to preface by saying that cream products and my skin usually don’t do well together.  Trying these Color Tint Blush Sticks was something I honestly wasn’t looking forward to because of that fact.  Luckily enough they are so pigmented that just a little dab will go a long, long way.  Jordana Color Tint Blush Sticks Review and SwatchesThere are 12 shades in the line total, and 6 are new.  They range from bright to neutral.  I think that the color range has a little something for everyone.  The shades I am reviewing for you here are Baby Pink
Sunkissed, Golden Sheen, Peach Nectar, Hot, Hot, Hot, Rouge Romance.  I love that 4 out of the 6 new shades are matte.  There are two shimmers, which are also very wearable.

They come in a very easy-to-use twist up stick and can be applied right to your cheeks with no additional tools, blending with your fingers.  They are extremely pigmented so you may want to use a brush that will apply it lightly like a stippling brush.

These swatches are only one swipe from the tube. Don’t let that scare you because these are really full on.  If you use a light hand they can sheer out very easily and completely natural on the cheek.

If you are looking to make a purchase the Jordana Color Tint Blush Sticks they retail for $2.99 and can be found at Walgreens or on the brand’s website.

Spring Trends | Bright Pink Lips from Burt’s Bees

Thank you Burt’s Bees for making this discussion possible.

This week’s hotel has been right on the beach.  We have had some GORGEOUS weather for the last couple of days and that has gotten me thinking about spring trends.  Bright pink lips are SO IN when the weather warms up and I, for one, am all for it.  Today I want to show you 4 options from Burt’s Bees that are perfect for popping in your bag so you are able to keep on trend all day long!

Spring Trends | Bright Pink Lips from Burt's Bees

Whether you like balms or glosses, shimmer or matte, Burt’s Bees has you covered.  The 4 products I am featuring are completely different from one another except for the fact that they are 100% natural and rich in moisture.  I love that Burt’s Bees gives a wide variety of products that all stand true to those values and allow us to delight up your lips!

So within the pin color family I found different shades and finishes that will look amazing on everyone.  The Lip Crayon in Niagara Overlook is a gorgeous neutral pink that is super appropriate for an office setting or just a casual t-shirt and jeans day.  The Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom I think is a super appropriate way to introduce lip color to a teen.  I actually wear tinted lip balms more often than any other option because I like a natural, barely-there color lip.  And Burt’s Bees balms make my lips feel so smooth.  The Lip Gloss in Spring Splendor is a PERFECT way to update your office look by dabbing it right in the center of your lips.  Lip Crayon in Niagara Overlook + Lip Gloss in Spring Splendor = Full, Pretty Pout.  Last but certainly not least is the gorgeous Lip Shimmer in the shade Rhubarb.  It is bold and bright and screams fun.  I personally rock it as often as possible.

Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter

Packaging is everything, is it not?  I love a product that works but sometimes I like it that much more if it comes in a cute pot or compact.  Even the outer packaging that said pot or compact comes delivered in cam go over pretty huge with me.  All that being said I think the Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter is so cute and feels so luxurious on the lip!

Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter

About the product:

These adorable little pots contain our finest formulation to nourish and condition your lips with the perfect hint of color. Made with Argan Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, and Shea butter.

The packaging on the posts is cute.  There is a pot that holds the gloss and the cap is a cute little crown looking thing.  The outer packaging is a cute little box with a pull out drawer.  The box is so cute that I find I like my Kissed Tintie to live there permanently.  I can’t bring myself to throw the box away.

Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter

The shade I am showing you today is called Kissed.  It is a gorgeous wearable pink tone shade that goes on and looks like a MLBB (my lips but better) shade.  It feels SO GOOD on the lips and the color does show up!  The swatch here is two two swipes, so that I could build the color up a bit.  You get the idea though.  Very nice stuff.

Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter

The Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butters retail for $14 and you can find them anywhere the brand is sold.  Go check out the website for more details and other products from the brand!

So tell me in the comments below:  What do you like in your lip products?  Great pigmentation, quality balm, ingredients that are amazing?  I think that this one has it all!
