U2 The Joshua Tree 2017, #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

I’ve been a bit scarce this week readers, but with good reason! I was prepping to go see these energetic young lads in concert last night. A Tuesday night concert when you have kiddos in school isn’t easy to pull off. It was simply an amazing opportunity to get to see U2 in concert, and get to re-live the magic that was The Joshua Tree.  That album was basically all I listened to back in the summer of 1987.

Today another fabulous IT Cosmetics TSV is available over at QVC!  This steal is one that’s easy for me to endorse.  Two full-sized compacts of the incredible IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation (with SPF 50+) and a gorgeous Heavely Luxe Angled Buffing Foundation Brush you can use to apply them!

I NEVER post photos of my skin with no makeup on.  Ok not never, I have done it exactly one time.  I did it when I posted my review of IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation way back in 2013.  The reason I allowed my face to be viewed publicly, flaws and all, was I wanted you all to see first-hand how incredible this product is!  Not only did it cover my redness, but it didn’t settle into my pores or fine lines the way many mineral foundations do.  This product is truly stellar.

Today over at QVC  you can grab the IT Cosmetics Supersize SPF50 Celebration Foundation TSV for $49.14 + $3.00 S&H!  Click HERE to check it out!  This pressed mineral powder foundation is available in seven different shades, and it truly is top-notch!  This is the only day in 2017 that this offer will be available, so don’t hesitate!  It’s a great time to try this product, or to replenish your stash.  Celebration foundation ordinarily retails for $35 per compact!

Click HERE to score this deal over at QVC!  Other retailers of the brand include ITCosmetics.com, Sephora, Ulta, and QVC.

I feel like Raging Rouge has been focused on lips lately.  Since I’m on the subject, it seemed like an ideal time for me to introduce you to Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick.  A recent launch, this Estee product features a wide selection of finishes and colors to play with!  The lipstick features a chisel-tip for easy application in tight corners, and also contains lip-loving ingredients to ensure your lips stay soft and healthy!

The lipstick tubes are designed upside down!  This lipstick is inserted in the weighty cap, facing downward.  The label featuring the color inside reflects through the clear portion of the case at the bottom, resulting in a very cool look when these lipsticks are perched on your vanity!
