Final Thoughts

Overall, I am very impressed with  these palettes and the way they were handled in the mail. I've come across a lot of broken makeup, but these palettes were untouched, which is a plus! Another thing i love is the packaging, and the creative effort that was used to truly personalized the experience of the consumer. These shadows vary from matte to shimmer and look very pigmented! I hope that is the car, because I love color, but not chalky color! If I have time, maybe I will do a swatch on these colors to show you how that look!! I'm am happy with this purchase; and in my opinion, this is the BEST Black Friday Deal that has happened to the makeup industry!!!! So far so good! I'll keep you updated!

Vanish Foundation Stick is #VirtualSkinPerfection

I was fortunate enough to be part of a sampling of Influencers to receive the new Hourglass Cosmetics Vanish Foundation stick.  Influenster's huge following of devoted product fans and reviewers is a super group to belong to. The perks of membership are incredible. It includes being selected for campaigns where companies send out boxes of products for absolutely no charge! Imagine that, just for your opinion and enjoyment. As someone who loves trying brand new items, I couldn't believe that one of my favorite beauty brands, Hourglass, was part of this program. 

Vanish Seamless Foundation Stick is a long wearing formula. It provides a satin finish with a powder's staying power. The brand says it lasts 12 hours! So incredible indeed. VanishSeamless Foundation Stick came to me in the Amber shade. My skin has a yellow undertone, and often is hard to fit because it also has a bit of a beige tone too. I am definitely golden without any red or orange. I had to second guess myself about 20 times after clicking the button to select the shade. Fortunately, it was completely right! Yasss! It is always more rewarding to actually not look orange in natural light. The tone of this stick was pretty much spot on. 

The stick has not a flaw, just flawless. Holding it is like touching a piece of smooth, cool marble. The packaging is substantial. The cap stays put, so it is perfect for people like me who travel fairly often. I feel very confident tossing it into my makeup bag, or even in my handbag. The color of the tube is beautiful and rich, with tonal swirls. 

Application is easier with the coordinating foundation brush. Not only this, but the look of the brush is vanity perfect. Swiping the stick on the cheek, forehead, chin, and nose is all that is required to make a full beautiful face of natural buildable coverage. And the gorgeous smoothing effect literally takes away those little fine lines. I couldn't detect those pesky reminders of my impending 41st birthday at all. ;) 

I cannot stop glowing and raving about how my experience with this product so far. I typically don't get overboard on a foundation, but this one is special. I like a lighter coverage to allow my few freckles to come through. I immediately felt pretty after applying it. And I didn't have much worry over it melting off in the humidity. This will work well in the fitness center. 

Hourglass makes other phenomenal products as well, such as the Mineral Veil primer which I highly recommend. Visit their site for an immersion in this line.

Best Winter Boot

I have been looking for a boot that is comfortable, high performing in snow and rain, and most important, STYLISH! Let's just say I wanted that Timberland style without the Timberland price (and if you like style, then you know what I mean). I have found just that! (I was fortunate enough to purchase these boots deeply discounted in return for my honest review). 

These babies can be found on AMAZON!! I ordered the grey lace up zipper hiking inspired ankle boot booty. They have done so well, with rain and snow (as you can see in the photos below)! Did I mention they're only $25 (or $32 depending on the color)!?!?!?!?!?!??
