Thanksgiving Week in Review on YouTube

You guys know I have a youtube channel, right?  I'm trying to align the channel and my blog better but I totally failed over the past week.  So I'm going to catch you up right here.

I posted my haul from the Muse Beauty Pro booth at The Makeup Show.  Girl....girl....girl!!  I had a lot of items in mind to purchase there and a couple that I hadn't anticipated.  You'll see a first look at the Viseart Grande Pro palette here.  I included swatches but my review hasn't gone up yet as I've been playing with every color to give you a full analysis.  I'll tell you right now, this will be one of my favorites from 2017.


You can see what I got in my Sephora Play box for November and whether I liked it or not.


I have some Laura Geller items that you definitely want to check out for holiday gift giving.  I've also done a Get Ready With Me with their 20 year celebration palette.  There is a giveaway of a triple highlighting palette at the end, which closes 11/30 at midnight.


Speaking of gift giving, you'll  want to consider The Vintage Cosmetics Company.  Their products have retro packaging and they're so cute!!!  They are also good quality at a low price.  You can find them at Ulta, TJ Maxx and Marshall's.  So cute!


And, I've started doing a little Vlogmas!  There are two videos so far and I honestly have no idea what I'm doing in vlogs, but what the heck....I get a little holly jolly during the holidays and love to spread the joy.



I hope you'll find something interesting for you in the videos.  It's such a busy time!!  Again I really apologize that I didn't keep you up to date during Thanksgiving.  I know everyone must have been as busy as I was, and I took a lot of family time over the week.  But I didn't forget you guys!!  I promise.

I'd like to do a Cyber Weekend haul for you and finish my picks from The Makeup Show...and make shopping lists, a little skincare, a little bath and body and a whole lot of makeup...where's an elf when you need a helper!?!  If you have anything you'd like to see first, please don't hesitate to let me know!

Charlotte Tilbury Unisex Healthy Glow, Light Wonder and Magic Foundation Reviews!!


A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate to receive some samples of complexion products from Charlotte Tilbury.  I absolutely adore this company and the products so it was super exciting!  Right away, I began to put them to the test.  The three products I received are the Unisex Healthy Glow, (1.7 oz / $40), Light Wonder Youth Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation in my color #3, (1.4 oz / $46), and the Magic Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 also in number 3, (1 oz / $44).

Unisex Healthy Glow, Light Wonder, Magic

The Unisex Healthy Glow is a all year round moisturizing healthy tint.  It gives a bit of radiance and hydration to the skin on application.  These are the claims:  "Encapsulated chameleon natural tan pigments are secret pigment colors that are revealed upon application, and once blended, the different tones deliver a natural color result. Charlotte formulated a magic mix of bronze, black and terracotta pigments that morph to become the perfect natural tan tone as you massage them together. It also contains a combination of moisture-regulating ingredients that mimic bouncy lipids in healthy skin."

Unisex Healthy Glow, Light Wonder, Magic

When I first used this, I was surprised that it comes out as a white liquid.  I put it on my face and it didn't stay white or blanch my face color at all.  In fact, I found that it made my skin look better, as if there was a fancy photo filter on it.

Unisex Healthy Glow, Light Wonder, Magic

I found it really unusual because I couldn't detect any color or see the product on my face and yet my face looked better than it does naked.  When I swatch it on my arm, I can see a bit of a bronzey tint, but I don't detect it on my face at all.  It's just like a second skin as it blends in giving me a "my skin but better" look.

Unisex Healthy Glow, Light Wonder, Magic

I am continuing to use this as a primer under my foundation.  I prefer some coverage but I love how the Healthy Glow makes my skin look and it makes a very nice primer.  This product doesn't contain SPF so be sure to use your sunscreen.

Light Wonder Youth Boosting Perfect Foundation, (SPF 15), is in the middle of the swatch pictures.  You can see that it is more fluid in comparison to the Magic foundation at the top of the swatches.  Additionally, while both products are in #3, Light Wonder is just ever so slightly pinker in tone, which I like.   And let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury's packaging...all classic with accents of rose gold and brown.  I just love it!

Unisex Healthy Glow, Light Wonder, Magic

I've been wearing Light Wonder for a little over a year as one of my regular go-to foundations.  I did a red carpet look during awards season earlier in the year wearing it.  I love how it looks on.  I imagine that's due to the youth boosting actives that it contains that even the complexion and boost hydration.  It is a light to medium finish.  Here are the claims:  "Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation is an air-light formula that illuminates, smoothes, hydrates, minimizes pores and reduces wrinkles for perfect skin."  It absolutely makes my skin look perfect and luminous.

Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Foundation is the most incredible bottle of genius I've ever worn.  It is a full coverage, (although you can sheer it to achieve medium coverage, if you want), and it doesn't feel heavy or mask-y.  It provides a beautiful demi-matte finish.   And let's talk about the gorgeous retro packaging!

Unisex Healthy Glow, Light Wonder, Magic

The Magic Foundation has been my choice of foundation since it arrived at my house.  I recently went to The Makeup Show in LA, and this was the foundation I chose to wear when how I looked mattered.  I find the coverage incredible for how lightweight it is.  I am currently experiencing some dermatitis from a gluten contamination on my chin,  (I've talked about this in the past.  It's pretty horrible and will last for months after an accidental ingestion of gluten.)  It's bumpy and it's ugly.  One swipe of the Magic Foundation and you can't even tell it's there!!  The bumps are a purpley-red so I feel certain I can tell you that a light application of this foundation would absolutely cover rosacea as well.  If you have acne, birthmarks or melasma, I feel confident this foundation will cover it and even your skintone.  Bold claims, but girl!  If you could see what it covers for me!!!

While I was at The Makeup Show, feeling confident in my Charlotte Tilbury Healthy Glow and Magic Foundation, I stopped by their booth where they were exhibiting for the first time.  If you'd like to see a Get Ready With Me with some of the things I purchased there, check out my recent video, posted below.



You can purchase the Charlotte Tilbury Cosmetics on her website or at Nordstrom.  Follow on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and Google+   As always, Charlotte Tilbury products are paraben free.   What is your favorite Charlotte Tilbury item?

Polarbelle's Week In Review

The past week has been a very busy one for me.  There were quite a few appointments, lots of swatching and testing, and a few videos that went out.  In case you hadn't been able to check them out, I'll just show you what I've talked about over the week.

One of the booths I visited while at The Makeup Show in LA was Charlotte Tilbury, one of my favorite brands.  I love the classic appeal of the packaging and the items themselves.  I'll have more up on the blog soon but for now, you can check out my Get Ready With Me featuring the Instant Eye Palette, a limited edition.


The next video I recorded featured my stop at the Muse Beauty Pro booth at TMSLA.  I planned to go there first to pick up a few things.  I also came home with the Grande Pro Palette, a limited edition matte palette.  I've swatched the items purchased at the booth and you can see them in the following video.  You'll see more about these items as I continue to explore them.  Don't miss the giveaway at the end of the video.


My November Sephora Play box came in while I was filming the other videos, so I have my analysis here:


See my Crimes Of Beauty shirt?  I bought it at The Makeup Show while surveying the goods at the Crimes Of Beauty booth.  It's actually a tank but for winter, I plan to layer it with another shirt.

I've scheduled some videos for the upcoming week and plan to have more for you to read as well.  There's just so much to tell you right now!!!

Be sure to enter the giveaway on the Muse Beauty Pro TMSLA post, and look for another coming up this week.

Halloween Week Makeup Look Extragavanza

In the week leading up to and including Halloween, I was challenged to create some unique makeup looks.  My initial inspiration came from a package I received via Buxom Cosmetics.  I shared all the looks on Instagram but I thought I'd bring to you all the fun that I had.  I haven't done anything Halloween-ish beside handing out candy since I was 14.  This all really was fun.

My first look was a 2017 take on 80's Madonna in the Like A Virgin video.  I may have sang and danced my way through Snapchat and IG stories that night, rumor has it...oh wait, that's an Adele song!


I couldn't find a picture that wasn't all fuzzy from the video but below is from the same time frame:


Products Used:
Eyes are @viseart Neutral Mattes
@buxomcosmetics Call Me black liner   **pr
#buxomcosmetics Big Tease mascara to plump lashes and a little Buxom waterproof to make them stay put.  **pr

@flowerbeauty Sweet Pea blush pot. 
Did muh hrr with @thebeachwaver .75"

Day 2,  I was challenged by Buxom Cosmetics to wing a little superhero action.  Afterwards, I got on Snapchat and deflected invisible bullets with a little "pew, pew, pew!"


Products used: 
Complexion:

The third look was something I wanted to do with my dog.  She's a rap star, you know, right?  She does benefit concerts and stuff....I had a full scenario for her return to the stage after a leg injury but she just wasn't having it.   In my imagination, we were dressed as her former sister in a Mommy and Me contest.



She wouldn't play, so I filmed my October Ipsy and Sephora Play unboxings.  You can see that here:


. Products:
@fentybeauty foundation to prime the canvas
@katvondbeauty Lock It Concealer used in a different way today
@buxomcosmetics eyeshadow Mix N Mingle, Invite Only & Filthy Rich to start the tabby coloring

I thought it would be so funny to dress up like another youtuber.  I picked Desi Perkins.  Here is my inspirational picture from Desi's Instagram:

If you know me, you know I am glued to baseball playoffs and the World Series every year, and even more so when my team is playing!  Clayton Kershaw, the Dodger Ace, was due to pitch on Game 5 and I was ready!!!  Here I am as Kershaw's Killer Slider.

Polarbelle Halloween

@collab lash primer from @sallybeauty . @katvondbeauty Hemingway Ink liner . @nyxcosmetics Vivid Liquid liner in the red color...which exploded but it worked out ok. . Let's go Dodgers!!!

And last but not least, I dressed up as a Polarbelle for Halloween.  When I meet a new person and they learn my online name, they always ask what a Polarbelle is.  I'm from Alaska, so I'm not a Southern Belle, right?  I am an Arctic Princess Warrier, a Polarbelle.  My fantasy interpretation of that is below.   I did film a video so expect to see the Polarbelle in action soon, although it all made my teeth look really yellow, so maybe that's too spooky of a video?


I had a lot of fun just throwing caution to the wind and playing pretend all week for the first time in 100 years.  Can you believe today is November already?!?  I won't dress as a turkey because I wear that costume all year, haha.  Did you do anything fun or get any cool candy this season?
