Elizabeth and James NIRVANA


Nirvana an intimate moment captured in two distinctive fragrances for her. Created by Ashley Olsen & Mary-Kate Olsen. Ashley and Mary-Kate wanted the signature fragrance for Elizabeth and James to embody the same sense of duality inherent to their partnership and the brand. The result was not one, but two blends—distinctly different, but undeniably connected.


Floral, fresh, feminine and addicting. Elizabeth and James Nirvana White is one of those scents you just can’t get enough of. If Black is the dark sexy version, white is the romantic, alluring version. The gorgeous combo of peony and musk is amazing, long wearing and it just gets better as the day goes on. Its a scent your man will love as much as you do. Perfect for your Valentine date night.

The Elizabeth and James Nirvana fragrances embody the brand’s inherent duality. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black’s sensual, woody scent with notes of violet, sandalwood and vanilla is contrasted by Elizabeth and James Nirvana White’s alluring floral musk with notes of peony, muguet and vanilla. Two blends- distinctly different, yet undeniably connected.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White is a captivating blend of delicate peony, chic muguet, and tender musk for a feminine scent with dark sophistication.

Peony, Muguet, Tender Musk.
Sophisticated. Feminine. Captivating.


The more sexier scent of the two, Nirvana Black is the perfect combo of musk, vanilla and sandalwood.  There is something dark and sensual about this scent and the best part its not like anything else you own.  A true standout, I love wearing this on a night out and am always amazed how long the scent lasts. You can’t wear this out without people asking what the amazing fragrance is your wearing.

It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation: Flawless Skin in 30 Seconds


Winter for me means pale, spotty face a mixture of paper white skin and redness from blemishes and environmental irritants. The last few weeks I just couldn’t get my makeup right my summer shades were too dark and my winter shades didn’t hide the ruddy undertone of my skin. I heard about IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation and had to check it out.

Celebration Foundation comes in four shades from Fair to Rich, in the photo below I am wearing medium-beige. My skin below on the left had only moisturizer and eye makeup. I used the enclosed puff and applied one thin coat across my face of the Celebration Foundation. First thing I noticed was so silky and light it felt, it glided right across my skin and felt amazing on my skin and the product is so light it doesn’t look or feel like foundation.

Next step was a side by side comparison, and with that I was hooked. I have had a pesky blemish on my face for weeks that is fading but so slowly I spend all day reapplying concealer to mask the redness. And as you can see on the right my blemish disappeared under just one swipe of Celebration Foundation. Not only did it make my blemishes vanish it made my crazy big pores disappear and evened out my rudy, shiny undertone. I have to say my skin really did go from winter blah to perfect in 30 seconds. And now 6 hours later the foundation is still going strong and my skin looks amazing. I am so glad to have found this and am going to start using it with a brush to get even smoother coverage. If you have been struggling to find the right foundation check out It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation, it takes your skin from blah to flawless faster than you can say Celebration Foundation.
