My Beauty Favorites — Week of September 11-17, 2017

I am so excited that it’s almost Fall!  It’s still fairly warm in Kansas City, so I’m really looking forward to cooler weather to go out and have some fun!

This week I have been loving some much needed waterproof makeup, new liner and brow makeup and hydration products for when you are dehydrated (in the heat or after being ill):

Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer: ($29 USD) Achieve an instant radiant glow with this silky powder that’s not only sweat-proof and weatherproof, but also gives your skin a natural looking-color without the dreaded orange tone. This bronzer is customizable due to its buildability and doesn’t streak or fade, leaving a bronzed look from day to night!

Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Blush:  ($26 USD) The perfect complement to Swimmables Bronzer, this sweat-proof, waterproof and weatherproof blush allows your cheeks to stay colorful without streaks or fading, no matter the occasion.

Cargo Swimmables Waterproof Mascara Top Coat: ($22 USD) Finish off your waterproof makeup look and transform any mascara you own into a tear-proof, waterproof, and sweat-proof formula. This invisible top coat transforms your lashes without affecting the performance of your favorite non-waterproof mascara!

What I think:  I’m always pretty warm, and even more so in the summer.  Waterproof beauty products are a must for me!  I have of course tried waterproof mascara, but not bronzer, blush or a waterproof mascara top coat before.

The blush and bronzer are so pretty on.  The bronzer is matte, which I love, so I can also use it for light contouring.  The blush in Ibiza is bright and fresh.  It looks really pretty on my light skin, but can be built up for darker skin tones.  And the mascara coat really works!  My mascara stays in place all day.

Whether you want to create thin, thick or cat-eye strokes, this innovative liner pen makes it easier than ever—and features a unique IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin brush hair tip that literally does the work for you!

IT Cosmetics Brow Power Powder ($24 USD) — is your breakthrough brow powder that is clinically tested to be waterproof—and is so easy to use, it does your brows for you! Developed with plastic surgeons, this groundbreaking product creates the look of real hair, and adds the look of soft volume and definition without ever appearing flat or drawn on. Perfect for both thin and thick brows, your brow innovation also features award-winning Brow PowerTechnology and transforms to all hair colors based on pressure.

IT Cosmetics Brow Powder Pomade ($24 USD) your 4-in-1 perfecting and defining budge-proof brow gel, brow-building and lifting mousse, brow-sculpting pomade and brow-taming brush applicator—all in one easy-to-use wand! Clinically tested to be 24-hour waterproof, this breakthrough product holds brows in place without flaking or hardening, and is infused with brow-loving biotin, saw palmetto, argan and jojoba oils. Plus, the universal clear shade is perfect for every brow tone and type, from sparse to super full!

What I think: The liner is amazing, so easy to use.  And it’s a shiny black, which is really cool!  My daughter wore it to homecoming last night and it lasted until she came home at 1:30 a.m.! LOL! (They went to IHOP afterwards).

The brow powder is a little too light for me, but it they make it in a darker shade, I’ll have to get it.  It looks so natural on!  The pomade set really nicely on my brows.  Since I do have such dark brows, I don’t wear much brow makeup, but I like this.  I tames them and keeps them in place for hours.

Hydralyte is an oral rehydration solutions that combats the effects from dehydration, as water may not always be enough. With up to 75% less sugar and 4X the electrolytes compared to other leading sports drinks, Hydralyte was formulated in accordance with the World Health Organization guidelines for oral rehydration, making all Hydralyte products contain the correct balance of glucose and electrolytes required for rapid rehydration whether your hiking, swimming, running, or enduring a rundown. Hydralyte is also great for kids heading back to school whether they are an athlete, in the marching band, taking P.E. this semester, recovering from the “back to school bug” (cold/flu season) or have to run from class to class to make it before the bell rings.

What I think.  I tried the single serve bottles and the tablets. They taste good, but definitely tasted like electrolyte drinks.  The flavors are Orange and Berry for the tablets and Orange, Berry and Lemonade in the liquids.  I think I like lemonade the best.

Both of these products are so handy to have on hand.  The tablets are great for family trips and outings.  They are also really easy to store.

These can be purchased at

  1. Ok, I’m gonna have to try this waterproof blush! I live in Florida (basically the sweaty armpit of the US) and I am so curious as to how the blush would hold up during the humid season! Thank you for sharing! Gonna look into that!
