On Valentines’ Day think of “lovers” but not necessarily couples. For lovers…of great cosmetics, Valentines’ Day is your time to treat yourself to something stellar. From gag-worthy new lipsticks from ItCosmetics, to luminous blushes by Doll10, Makeup Junkees’ affordable and covet-able bdeauty goodies, and a Lip Oil that adds more than just hydration, I’m “in love” with these products.
Fabulous Pillow Lips Lipsticks By ItCosmetics:
if you read my stories you know I’m a huge ItCosmetics fan. Their skincare and their color cosmetics are not just beautiful and easy to use, but they always do a little more.
You can’t ever have too many lipsticks. But imagine collagen-infused lip color that makes your lips look fuller and delivers high- impact color payoff in just one swipe!
It’s not a dream, Pillow Lips Lipstick by ItCosmetics!
Offered in cream and matte finishes, each of the 14 shades were designed complement all skin tones and lip types.
However, that’s not all: the lipsticks are also infused with hyaluronic filling spheres and soothing aplus seabuckthorn berry extract,and beeswax to make the lipstick super hydrating and long lasting.
In short, the lipsticks can help to minimize the appearance of lip wrinkles along with beautifying your lips with lasting color.
The lipstick bullet is unique too: it’s designed to hug the curves of your lips which adds to the plumping effect.
Try The Colors On!
In the photo above you can compare the matte and the cream formulas in
“Stellar,” (Bold Red)”Wish List” (deep pink) and “Like a Dream” (Medium berry).
Although you can see the lipstick colors in swatches, there is a movel “Try IT on” function on the ItCosmetics Website where you can upload a photo or use a live camera and see how the colors will work on you.
It’s not perfect, but it’s tons of fun and does give you a better view of which colors are going to be the most flattering.

Dazzle her with a gorgeous Glitter Set ($20): Razzle Dazzle (silver) or Bedazzle (holographic). The three- piece set includes a pot of sparkling glitter, glitter glue, and a brush to apply to glitter.
To use, carefully tap some glitter onto the jar lid. Use the doe-foot applicator brush, patting gently, to apply the glue on your eyelids where you want the gliter to adhere. Wait 20-30 seconds before applying the glitter. Dip the brush into the glitter and tap off any excess product. Pat glitter onto eyelids with by pressing the bristles on your eyelid.
Do apply glitter before face makeup. There may be some fallout.
You’re a pro when it comes to eye looks. Get the quintessential makeup brush set to prove it. The BeautyJunkees pro Series Eye Brush Set with Case ($25, case alone $15) gives you all the tools you need to make your eyes look beautiful and to experiment with new colors and techniques.
The black, pebbled, faux leather zippered case is 9 1/2” X 4 1/2”. . It is lined in hot pink nylon and can hold lots of other tools or beauty items as well.
Inside you’ll find good quality brushes with lightweight black matte handles:
pro Pencil: For smudging or applying shadow at the top and bottom lash line.
Tapered Blending: APPLY A base shadow into the crease of the eyelid for a soft finish.
All Over Shader: The dense rounded bristles are designed to cover your entire eyelid.
Precision Eye Liner: To apply a tight line on the upper and lower lash lines with liquid, gel, cream or powders.
Angled Shading: To apply shadow to the brow bone, for highlighting and to blend color in the crease.
Flat Definer: To apply a sharp line on the upper or lower lash line with gel, cream or powder liners. This is my favorite brush!
Blending: To blur out any harsh lines and to blend.

This is not just a great value, but the brushes are of good quality.
Put your eye shadow brushes to good use with the ultimate, versatile shadow palette.

The palette is deep enough to handle even domed shadows and hold 28 standard shadow pans. You can, of course, include blush and foundation.
Many shadows are the type of metal that will stick nicely in place in this magnetic palette. However, if you have some items are are not magnetic, you can make them “stick” with the included metal stick-ons.

Our photo shows two quartets: “Date Night quad palette ” and next to it the “Sweetheart quad palette.” The other colors below and to the right are my own pans from Ittse Cosmetics, just to show you can add a lot of colors!
