Hourglass Illume Creme-To-Powder Bronzer Duo

I love bronzers and I was really excited to try a sample of the new Hourglass Illume Creme-To-Powder Bronzer Duo. This one product seemed to fix a lot of problems I have had with other bronzers.  Since I am so fair some bronzers just overwhelm my skin tone. I really liked the two shades of the bronzer the colors were very buildable and with the light and dark shade I could get a sun kissed look without looking made up. My favorite part was the creme to powder texture it made it so simple to apply and once it turned to powder it set well and stayed put. Another great product from Hourglass.

The scents of summer!

Ever find a product that just looking at the packaging you know your going to love it? Well Pacifica is one of those products, when I first saw the products I fell in love with the bright colors and tropical floral prints adorning the bottles and boxes.

I was so excited to try this line the fruit and floral combos sounded perfect for spring and summer. I was able to try a sample of the Hawaiian Ruby Guava and its even better than I hoped. The scent is so fresh and clean and the guava fragrance is amazing it gives you the warm sunny feeling of soaking up the sun on a Hawaiian island.

I also got a chance to check out their perfume solids which I love for keeping in my purse. I chose the Malibu Lemon Blossom and being a huge beach junkie this scent was designed for me. It smells almost indescribably great its like the excitement you get in spring this scent just gives you a jolt.

Volumizing – “I tried a lot of lash enhancers-Revitalash, Skinactives serum, MD Lash Factor, and Lumigan (the same ingredients as Latisse). What I like about Tarte MultiplEYE is natural ingredients, no animal testing and that gives volume. Lashes look very strong and healthy and I really like the full look…My lashes are growing like weeds now, and I noticed the difference during 1st week!” —Amazon

I’m a believer! – “It’s been 5 weeks since I began using Tarte’s MultiplEYE Natural Lash Enhancer and my lashes are fuller and slightly longer. New lash growth is clearly visible in places where I was missing lashes due to daily falsie’s application, removal and curling. I even wore mascara yesterday!” —Joan’s Beauty Review

Worth every penny!!!! – “I have only been using it for about 3 weeks, but I immediately noticed a difference in the thickness of my lashes. They seem to be getting longer, and definitely stronger! I would lose 6+ lashes every time I took my makeup off, but since using this- they’ve been hangin’ out just fine!” —Sephora
