Your 30 seconds to flawless — super-sized! IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation is your full-coverage, anti-aging, hydrating powder foundation. Formulated with peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, silk powder and antioxidants, the talc-free foundation delivers highly pigmented coverage that helps to hide the appearance of skin concerns including hyperpigmentation, redness, dark circles, and visible pores.

Designed to smooth the look of your skin, Celebration Foundation blurs the appearance of skin imperfections to reveal the look of younger-looking skin when you wear it. And bonus: it won’t crease or crack!

Plus, you’ll also receive the Heavenly Luxe Flat Top Buffing Foundation Brush, custom-cut with the perfect density and shape for effortless full coverage.

I have been using this foundation for years.  It’s a full coverage powder foundation that makes skin look smooth and it feels amazing on, too! I love how easy it is to apply with the brush, too.

Tati Beauty Blendiful Review

Hi all!  I hope you are having a great weekend!

I’m back with a new Tati Beauty review.  I have already reviewed the Textured Neutrals Vol. 1 palette when it was released.  Tati Westbrook is the founder of the brand.  She’s a Youtube star, as I’m sure you know!

This is the Blendiful makeup applicator.  I wasn’t going to pick this up at first, but after watching reviews of the Blendiful, I decided to pick it up!

Here’s info from the Tati Beauty website:

The Blendiful is the makeup applicator you didn’t know you needed. This game changing soft textured fabric tool is a blending dream that’s designed to seamlessly apply & soften both liquid and powder products. The rounded edge & pointed tip help to provide a perfect blend step to step in your makeup application.  Buff in foundation with little product waste, experience seamless contour, smoother concealer & the most airbrushed powder application… even in those hard to reach areas of the face. Save product, save time & become the expert artist of your own unique routine. However you choose to use the Blendiful, your look will be one with no harsh lines every time. 

Here’s the back of the sponges:

Here’s the package it came in, front and back:

This is very thin and sleek.

I also wanted to show how it washed.  Below is my Blendiful after using it for foundation, concealer, cream bronzer and blush:.

IMG-2668

It’s dirty! I washed it with a little soap in the sink.  It washes up pretty quickly.  I lay it out to dry over night and this is how it looks afterwards:

IMG-2670

Nice and clean!  It’s still nice and soft.  Maybe not as soft as before you use it, but it still works just fine.

So, how do I like it?  First a confession.  The real reason I picked this up was the fact that I am lazy and when I heard this doesn’t have to be wet like a makeup sponge, I was in! I always forget to wet my sponge, sit down and get ready to apply my makeup, and have to get up and wet it.  Every. Time.

But, I’m so glad that I purchased it because it’s really a great product! The Blendiful is very easy to use.  I use it flat to quickly apply foundation.  It blends out so seamlessly.  The, it can be easily folded and manipulated to apply concealer, cream contours, blushes and highlights and all powder products. And my full face is applied in minutes.

I have tried it with stick and liquid foundations so far and like how it blends both.  It also blends my stick contours so nicely!

The little one is good for touch ups throughout the day if you have oilier skin.  I don’t, so I use it for powder.  It’s very soft and cute!


I highly recommend this if you love innovative ways to apply your makeup and want to try something new.  I will continue to use this everyday to apply my face makeup.

Have you picked up the Blendiful?  What do you think of the brand Tati Beauty?  Let me know!

BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review — October 2019

IMG-1681

Hey all! I recently received my October BoxyCharm! This month there were so many different variations.

I’ve been subscribed to BoxyCharm for over two years now and really enjoy it. BoxyCharm is now $21 a month for 4-5 beauty items, most of them full-sized. Next month, in November, it increases to $25 a month. The value is supposed to be a little more, though.  There is also a new BoxyCharm Premium starting in November.  It’s $35 a month for 6-7 products. I haven’t decided if I want to try that one yet.  I might cancel my Ipsy Ultimate (review to come), and get that instead.

My version is 39. This month I received:

IMG-1670

Total — $140 — great for paying $21!

I am in love with this box!  Probably one of the best ones I’ve gotten in a long time.  The Touch in Sol balm was the item I chose this month, so I’m excited to use it.  I’m already using the lip gloss and it’s beautiful — not sticky at all.  I don’t think I’ve noticed plumping, but it’s minty and nice.

I’m really looking forward to trying the Illuminati sponge.  I’ve never heard of the brand before, but it’s soft and I wonder how it will feel once wet.  I’m going to hold on to it for when I need a fresh sponge.

The only product I may give away is the Tarte highlighter.  I don’t really wear liquid highlighter.

My favorite item of the box is definitely the Dose of Colors palette.  I’ve been wanting to try one of their 5-pan palettes.  Here is a close up of the palette:

IMG-1671IMG-1674

So pretty!  And the shades are so smooth.  Here’s swatches:

IMG-1676

All of these shades swatched really nicely.  I’m excited to use it!

I’m very happy with my box this month.  Next month will be a more expensive box and it’s also supposed to be worth more.  I’ve seen a couple of spoilers and it looks like it will be a great box!


Do you get BoxyCharm?  What did you get this month?

Beauty & The Box Launches The Traveler Deluxe

Hi all!  I hope you’re having a great weekend! It is hot is Kansas City!  I hope you are staying cool wherever you are.

Today I’m reviewing a travel makeup organizer.  It is the Traveler Deluxe ($85) by Beauty & the Box.  It was sent to me for my honest review.

Traveler_Deluxe1_LR2

The Traveler’s unique, innovative design includes 3 POP-UP cosmetic boxes that travel flat for convenience and pop-up intuitively at your destination.

Each box is cleverly stair-stepped to hold mascaras, pencils, brushes, lipsticks.  The boxes fit securely into the sturdy, go-anywhere tray base, so makeup won’t wobble around or fall over. The Traveler frees you up, sets you up and gets you ready for makeup in an instant.

The Traveler Deluxe Includes:

  • 3 POP-UP cosmetic boxes
  • Lift-out, go-anywhere tray with handles
  • Stand-alone, foldable mirror
  • See-through durable cosmetic pouch (can be purchased separately)
  • All in a stylish black soft mesh case with comfy carry handle and zipper closing lined in silky blue protective padding.

IMG-1296

You can fold up the containers and store them in on of the blue bags.  The mirror (which is very nice and can stand up) goes in the other blue bag.  The black bag in the front has a clear top and you can put your makeup in it.  The large black bag in the back holds all of the components so you can  travel with it.

Another cool thing about this set is the black base of the containers hook into the holes in the tray so it won’t budge.  This is helpful if you are moving when you are storing your makeup — in cars, RV’s etc!

I am really enjoying this set and think it’s also great for home storage. And you can easily move it from one room to another!
