Zoya Whispers is the **NEW** collection and it's their transitional collection. The colors are super brilliant because they are pastel (which in my mind makes me think Easter Bunny) but if you remove the pink and purple, you have a really nice neutral toned palette.
I love this color! This is described as a "light, rosy toned neutral that is a modern take on blush".
For me, this was supppppper light and almost leaned nude. I would love to see this with a shimmer. It would be gorgeous!
This is described as a "subtle grayed grape that is more interesting than a mauve and gives a modern alternative that is ever so wearable". I love mauves, grapes and anything in the purple family so I think this is the perfect color combo-ed with this gray!
This is one of the pastelish colors I was talking about. This makes me think that the Spring collection will be full of bright colors!
BUT this green!! Zoya describes this as a, "uniquely wearable green that is muted enough to make it subtle yet still interesting". It is supposed to the best mixture between blue and yellow so it matches well with all skin tones.
This color really does compliment my pasty skin tone. I was surprised about how I like this color. I am soooo not a green girl BUT this really is a nice soft color to transition.
This is described as a "soft nude with a kiss of warmth that will flatter most skin tones". For me, this color leans more towards a creamy yellow than a nude.
Don't get me wrong, I love this color so hard, but I think the description of nude is a little off. I feel like Misty leans more nude than Cala. This is a peach color, to my eye, and I love it!
Zoya describes this as a "softened blue that gives the effect of serene water with just a hint of vibrancy to preserve its luminosity".
Meh.... I'm not sure about the whole vibrancy thing. This is a powder blue in its truest form. I don't see any luminosity or brightness at all in this color. It's ok, though. It's still a super pretty color. This is another one of those pretty pastel colors that is perfect for the upcoming Easter holiday.
This is supposed to be an "easy to wear taupe that is an updated version of gray with with just a touch of green to make it daring". When I first saw this color, I thought this was the nude out of the bunch.
While I'm not in love with this color and totally think it looks a little mustard like, it's ok. I'm going to add it to my nudes pile.
Overall, This collection is perfect for a transition into the Spring. Hopefully it will start to bring on the Spring weather. I know it's a little too early to start wishing for warm weather, but hey.... I can wish, can't I? All of these colors are super creamy and super rich. I used 3 super delicately placed layers. These are very creamy, so be careful you aren't gooping on the colors. If you want to check out the colors on the site or buy your own, you can do so here. They are $9 each or $54 for the sampler pictured below.
This is my first time using any products from GA-DE Cosmetics, so I was excited to see what they can do. When using a product for the first time, I always like to learn a little bit about the company and then get a really good feel for their products. I was sent a full set of products to create a full face look. GA-DE Cosmetics says to wear their brand is to, "feel beauty of every day life, to feel powerfully feminine and to live for the richest experience life has to offer". Yes! It goes along perfectly with my Make Me Pretty philosophy of using products that make YOU feel good about yourself.
First up, two lipsticks. One in a sultry red color and the other a nude. The Idylic Soft Satin lipstick comes in 12 different colors ranging from the nude above to a deep plum color. Each satiny lipstick is infused with lip care ingredients that include hyaluronic filling spheres to help smooth out those kissers.
When I first tried them on my wrist as a swatch, I loved …

Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti- Wrinkle Complex SPF 15 has been a really great product that has made it's way, permanently, to my beauty must-haves list! It has not only reduced a deep wrinkle, but it has also been very nice to my gentle, irrational skin. I have mentioned this before, but I am a 30 year old with the skin of a 16 year old. Mostly anything I put on my face gives me a pimple or a rash. All of the Hydroxatone products have been really good to my skin. I use this 2 times a day and have not had a single break out since using it.
Hydroxatone claims the following regarding AM/PM Anti- Wrinkle Complex SPF 15:

**Sponsored Post** Just about a year ago, my family
and I embarked on a quest to find the “perfect” family vehicle. Now, for some
of you this may seem like a simple task BUT not for us! We googled just about
every type of car there was and ended up back in the same place; what is
available for us, near us, at this current time. We eventually stumbled upon
cars.com as one of our search tools to help us complete our quest. There was so
many search options that we could literally tailor the search to exactly what
we wanted. As many of you know, I have two kids so a bigger car was important to us
for the space and to avoid all that love sibling bickering, you know what I'm
talking about parents! They are both so (soooooooooo) involved and we do a
lot of running. We also travel a lot, so space to put Christmas presents,
suitcases, baseball gear and ballet friends was at the top of our list. We knew we didn’t want to travel over 25 miles to get our vehicle and
something that had a warrant…
