They sent me a Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc ($38) gratis not too long ago. I've been meaning to show it to you for weeks, but the sunshine wasn't cooperating with me. Now that we are having a stretch of sunny days, I'm catching up.
The first thing you need to know about Live, Love, Laugh is that it's huge. You certainly get your money's worth with this mirrored compact containing a Luxe High Performance Anti-Aging matte bronzer, illuminating powder, and a vitality blush.
The Live, Love, Laugh Anti-Aging Vitality Face Disc is all about that healthy look of vitality for the face and body. This disc is substantial in size and has a jumbo mirror inside - it's an all-in-one makeup must-have. The waterproof matte bronzer, illuminating highlighter, and anti-aging vitality blush shade are naturally pretty and infused with cutting-edge anti-aging ingredients hydrating ingredients, including hydrolyzed collagen, açaí, green tea, and vitamins A, C, and E. There's no talc, parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrances, and it's phthalate free (those trying to avoid hormone disruptors will be pleased).
The blush revved me. It is a watermelon pink, has a satin finish, and looks extremely natural. I should have taken a photo of a normal application, but that wouldn't have shown up particularly well here.
Using the Jumbo Heavenly Luxe Mega-Brush, apply the matte bronzer to areas of your face where you desire a bit more color, such as across the forehead, nose, and chin - then underneath the cheekbones and jawline for dimension and contouring. Use the illuminating radiance powder on the areas of your face where you desire the look of light and illumination, such as along the top side of your cheek and brow bones. Apply the vitality blush to the apples of your cheeks for a healthy-looking glow. If you prefer a hint of shimmer with your bronzer, swirl your brush in both the matte bronzer and the illuminating powder. The two combine for the perfect bronze glow. I will add that the illuminating powder and the vitality blush also blend well for a brightening blush.
I have fallen for IT. They have been very generous with me, sending me color, skin care, and brushes to try. I am going to go dig through my box. I was browsing online and was "captured" by the Hello Light Anti-Aging Crème Radiance Illuminator. I really hope it's in there. Next up, I want to tell you about a fabulous IT Cosmetics foundation I tested last week. I am a lucky blogger.
When you go the the IT Web site, you will see an offer to become an "IT Insider" and receive a 20% discount on your next purchase. Plus you'll receive the company's newsletter. Good deal!
