It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye and Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Stick

*Press sample sent for review

I had the amazing opportunity to review a couple of products that It Cosmetics sent to me. I was super thrilled when these arrived on my doorstep. I have been wanting to try Bye Bye Under Eye for so long. I also received It Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Stick. I have horrible dark circles under my eyes. I haven't really found anything to cover them up that doesn't look like I slapped play-do under my eyes. lol.... I immediately went to try on these products and was absolutely AMAZED at how well the Bye Bye Under Eye worked on my dark circles. Here are some photos and my thoughts about the products. Don't forget at the end there will be links where to buy and social media, so you can experience the amazing company as well! *yes my eyebrows are wild and have a mind on their own... we have an appointment soon so bare with me here ladies!! lol*

Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Stick ($24.00)
Formulated with anti-aging powerhouse ingredients including peptides, hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, and anti-oxidants that hydrate, condition, and nourish your skin while warding off free-radicals all day long. It gives you a healthy lit-from-within glow, that leaves skin silky, velvety and supple without using glitter, plus it never settles into lines and wrinkles! 
Developed with leading plastic surgeons, Hello Light™ Anti-Aging Crème Luminizer Stick is like the look of a face lift in a stick! It brings light back to your skin without using glitter. Plus its packed anti-aging ingredients such as hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, Hyaluronic acid, real Silk Vitamins A, C, E, Grapeseed, Green Tea, and Aloe for the perfect “lit-from-within” glow. (description from It Cosmetics website)

Okay for starters the packaging is super cute! And the product is super great too. A gorgeous pink champagne. It's not a shimmer and NO glitter.... just this incredible glow! It's very subtle. It's very lightweight on the skin and I didn't find it settling in any of my little lines or wrinkles! lol! I think it stayed on just great... after a 8 hour day of makeup, you could still tell I had a 'glow'. I would definitely recommend this if you like creme products!  

Bye Bye Under Eye in shade Light ($29.00)

Bye Bye Under Eye® Corrector Concentrate is your 8 hours of sleep in a jar! This creamy, highly pigmented yet lightweight peach-based concealer is designed to effectively neutralize, and erase the look of eye darkness, dark circles and even age spots.
Infused with color-correcting and brightening pigments to erase and correct discoloration from view. Plus it’s packed with skin conditioners to protect the delicate under-eye area including anti-aging Peptides, Niacin, Green Coffee Extract, Collagen, and Hyaluronic Acid. Cucumber, Aloe and Avocado offer soothing benefits and give skin a more youthful radiance while completely concealing imperfections. The creamy formula blends easily and lasts all day! (description from It Cosmetics website)

okay the gem of the bunch! I have the color 'light' I honestly thought I would need medium but I think this worked just perfect. I wore this under my foundation. It gave a nice 1 toned canvas to work with. I hate trying to find products that will truly cover my bad dark circles, because I haven't came across one. This is a winner winner! It is creamy yet not too think. After all your makeup is on you don't notice it on your skin. It did settle JUST a little in some deeper wrinkles I have under my eyes.... but not bad at all. I definitely have some other concealers that REALLY settle. This one by far settles the least. After powder and a full day of wear, this preformed outstanding. I think I just found my new 'go to' concealer!

Mary Kay cosmetics cream eye shadow and brush

So, I went to the p.o. box today and inside was an unexpected surprise from Mary Kay. They had sent me a full size cream eye shadow pot in the color Iced Cocoa and a very nice cream shadow brush. I couldn't wait to try them out and rushed home to play and figured I would make a post and let ya'll know what I thought about it as well. The color of the cream shadow, Iced Cocoa, is very pretty. The name itself says it all... it's a shimmery medium brown. And a very pretty all over the lid color. The staying power proved great. She applied just fine and blended out with my finger was, awesome. The brush wasn't too stiff and was actually pretty soft but dense. Overall I would definitely give this little duo a huge thumbs up! I can't wait to play with the shadow as a base. :) 
I had previously posted about some MK mascara (holy grail) and if your interested in that post just click right HERE!!

Ohhh I have a fun post today.... back in 2012 Kawaii Nail Lacquer made an amazing Avengers collection.

I am going to (obviously) post pics of the new collection but also show you the old ones to, to see how they compare! Yay!! Oh and NO judging on my old photos lol.... it was a while ago... hahaha! The new formula of these are so smooth and just apply like silk. I love glitter topper polishes that go one with ease. There is no struggle to get these on your nails. AMAZE~BALLS!!!
