Get Lit – With Light Up Lip Gloss

Well,  let’s start with the fact that I had not even tried on this lipgloss and they already had me!  The light up wand with little mirror is genius.  I mean it’s incredible, I can put gloss on in a dark car or Uber with this gem.  So, let’s talk quality.  It’s creamy and the color is great!  Not quite a stain, but overall a good buy.  It runs about $20, so it also makes a sweet little gift for friends.

Pure Illumination

Pure Illumination Light Up Lip Gloss is a natural-based, conditioning lip gloss that has a LED-lit applicator and convenient mirror for easy application on the go.  Glad someone finally thought of this!

Pure Illumination Light Up Lip Gloss contains a medical-grade Lanolin, Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E – and is paraben-free!  It’s available in 15 different shades for casual days and nights out on the town.

This natural-based hydrating lip gloss is available in 2 options: Push Button (LED-lit applicator is turned on/off by a button at the top of applicator) or Twist Top (LED-lit applicator automatically illuminates when the lip gloss tube is opened).  Try it and let us know how you like it!

How Do You Know Which Color Will Be Right For You?

Not sure what your perfect nude lipstick color should be?  According to a recent segment on “The Doctors”, the perfect nude shade for your lips, that will complement your unique skin tone, should match the color of your nipples.  Huh?  Yep, you read that right.  I have a question for “The Doctors” – how exactly do we compare colors when we are out shopping for makeup?  Yeah,.. not happening. So, I guess it’s worth taking a peek and hopefully you can remember when you are on your next shopping excursion.  Good luck with that 🙂

4 Makeup Products for a Natural Looking Tween/Teen


  1. Use covergirl bb cream – over entire face (bonus is that it has spf in it too, so your teen protects their skin while wearing a little color).

2.  Roll concealer in a V-shape under eye and lightly pat.  What you get is a sheer dose of light under the eyes to conceal under eye circles (if they have them). It simply just brightens up the face.

3.   Use the Wet n Wild blush on the apples of the cheeks and for the eyelids.  Cool right 2 for 1!

This blush can be used on cheeks but also on the eyelids for eyeshadow.  Has a small amount of sparkle but just enough to be light reflecting not glittery.  This creates a fresh face look just slightly enhanced.

P.S. I use this most days myself for a natural looking face.

4.  Take a tiny bit of Aquaphor, rub on just the lid,  Then, with an eyeshadow brush use same Wet n Wild blush and go over the top lid.  Add more as needed.  You can also lightly use color on the whole eyelid!

5.  Apply Aquaphor to lips for a clear gloss.  Or any gloss you wish!

6.  Apply several coats of your favorite mascara.  I know what our favorite mascara is here at nearlyallthings – We already wrote about it. Check out our earlier post to get those details.

Make-up Meets Technology

Having trouble matching foundation to your skin color?  Then this is a perfect match for you.  Your color changes with each season, so this company does the work for you! So easy to do right on your phone!  Yes, on your phone with their app!  As you can see below, I did it.


I got my custom match and the bottle even came with my name on it!  Check out the picture.  It was a perfect match!




How does this all work?

Our hyper-intelligent technology takes five skin scans, analyzes your skin tone, and then blends a perfectly matched all-in-one foundation just for you. Each bottle is personalized with your name and the date that it was made. – MatchCo.

And now, this company has also partnered with Bare Minerals to make their products that much better (see the email ad I received below).

Spring Refresh – 5 Sephora Products for All Skin Types


Day look:

  1. Start with a nicely hydrated face and apply under eye cream.  Apply a foundation of your choice.  If you’re super lucky and don’t need it … well then I just don’t like you. 😉  Apply the under eyes with Sephora’s Smoothing & Brightening concealer.
  2. Next up, one of the best products for all the time is the Sephora Beauty Amplifier.  It’s a base for your eyelids, which gives a smooth base for your eyeshadow and liner to go on.  BUT,  it can be used alone without anything on top for a neutral eyelid. This will create a smooth natural eyelid look.
  3. Now, you are ready for the Sephora Hippy Girl Eyeshadow.  This color is great on all eye shades and skin types.  It is fresh and perfect for a spring/summer update.  Apply this just up to the crease of the lid.  This shadow can also be used on top of the cheekbones as a highlighter.  Boom another product that does double duty!
  4. Alright, this next one looks scary with the glitter but its very pretty and not too much- I promise.  Sephora Blush in Hysterical.  This is another double duty product.  Apply on the apples of the cheeks and also use in the crease of the eyelid.  Once you have added both colors to eyelid, blend with your finger.  Now your eyes should look fresh with a pinky peach color up to the crease and the base color is what shows under the brow bone.  Very pretty!
  5. Last step – add the Sephora Lip Gloss in this pretty peachy pink called Earth Angel!

Night look:

Add a winged eyeliner just on top or go for it and add liner around the entire eye.  I prefer a dark brown for this look.  Even add liner to the waterline of the eye with this look!

5 products with lots of uses and not expensive.
