Clearly I have been living under a rock, as I only tried Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics line a couple of months ago. I’ve always loved the Julie G nail polishes (Best Fast Dry top coat ever!), but I had never tried the makeup until recently. Thank goodness for the lovely pr package I received to try out! Jesse’s Girl is also having a 20% sale through the end of February if you use my code JG2017DDB. You also get free shipping when your order is over $20.
I have a few outstanding products to share with you to make your shopping a little easier. I don’t mind being an enabler. 😉 The Highlight and Contour Kit comes with 4 highlight shades: two light shimmers, one light matte, and one banana toned matte shade. Also included in the kit are four matte contour shades. They lean warm, and are seriously pigmented. My current winter white skin needs only the slightest kiss of color from the lightest shade, which is slightly darker than Benefit’s Hoola bronzer. The other shades are going to be better if you love a strong contour, and have medium or darker skin tone. I found the shades to be very blendable and easy to work with. The soft shimmer highlight shades are truly lovely.
The Eye Primer is $5.99 and performs as well as my primers that are 5x that price. A must have to begin any eye look! The small palette pictured is the Dream Girl eye color collection. It’s perfectly purse sized and great for traveling if you love a neutral eye look. The larger palette is my favorite product from the eyeshadow line. It’s the Natural Nudes Collection. I love that it comes with four nude matte shades that are perfect for my crease. The metallic shades in the palette are SO SO gorgeous. I have found they apply a bit patchy with a brush or sponge, so I like to apply them by tapping them onto my lid. The Back Stage Collection Natural Nudes palette has a shocking price of $6.99. You may as well grab the other palette, Sounds Of The City, for that price!
The most fun lip product I own is obviously the Glow Stix Lip Gloss. These iridescent gloss toppers add a holographic shift to your lips. I also love the Matte Finish Lip Color, topped with the Liquid Glass Lip Gloss.
The 20% off sale ends February 28th, so be sure to order before then using the code JG2017DDB. Happy Shopping!

My favorite discount cruelty free makeup brush brand has come out with a fabulous Contour and Highlighting Palette.
I’m not huge into an Instagram extreme highlight and contour look, but I have been searching high and low for a NATURAL looking contour for my light toned skin. This is perfection! The tones are very neutral and not too warm, perfect for contouring! I think this palette will be great for those with fair, light, and medium skin tones. I have oily acne prone skin and these powders do not make me more oily or break me out. I find they blend quite well on my skin after I’ve used liquid or powder foundation. There is no fading or getting patchy throughout the day either. Once I apply, it stays for the day. Bonus: the contour shades may work as a brow powder for you. They also work great for contouring your eye, just use as you would a matte eye shadow. You can create a great pin-up look by using the shades in here and adding a black liquid liner.
You can find my absolute favorite eyeshadow brush set here (I use it daily!). Have you tried anything from Beauty Junkees yet? They are going to have some exciting makeup releases in the coming weeks, and I’m excited to share more with you shortly.
My most used cosmetics brand is having a special sale, now through 2/21. There are some CRAZY good deals so whether you love the brand, or have never tried them out, it’s a great time to shop at IT! If you’re not sure where to start, I’d recommend the Blurred Lines lipstick. The formula is my absolute favorite! When you apply over the Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lip Stain pencil, you will get a super long lasting and comfortable to wear combination. You can also never go wrong with IT Cosmetics brushes. My collection is filled with them, and they last longer than any other brand I’ve tried. I love the super soft cruelty free brushes and use them daily. Happy Shopping!
