It has been forever since I’ve share one of my I Am Into posts, but today, we are roaring back with a beauty-based vengeance. Or something like that!
I am no harbinger of beauty trends, but there are some things I have been loving so today I will share them with you! Shall we begin?
Glossier recently introduced a new product called Ultralip. Described as “The rich moisture of a balm, the sheen of a gloss, and the buildable color of a lip tint, without the hassle of layering multiple products—it’s one tube, one step, one… Glossier Ultralip!”, this is the lip color I have been waiting for all my life! It’s got moisture, wonderful colors and it doesn’t get goopy on the lips. This is the perfect product for my, ahem, older luscious lips! I wear the color Portrait the most, and Lucite is the latest to join my makeup drawer.
I always top mine with a tiny dab of Glossier Lip Gloss in Holographic. It’s not an overstatement to say this has replaced pretty much all of my lip glosses and lip colors.

I loved it so much I bought a large size and am saving my small one for travel (if I ever leave the house for more than a run to Target!) This deodorant smells amazing! And I generally do not like scents at all. However, it’s truly a deodorant and not an antiperspirant, so if you sweat a ton, it might not be for you.
I also ordered the Dust Puff and the Body Dust and am obsessed! The Body Dust has a very light, almost imperceptible lavender scent and is talc free. For a person who likes to remain bra-less while home during the day, this stuff is fabulous for under the boobage, if you catch my drift.
I also picked up some Power Wash and some Thigh Rescue, both are FAN-freaking-tastic! I am not an affiliate for this company, I just love what they are putting out into the market place! You can also find Megababe products at Target and Ulta!
KJAER WEIS CREAM BLUSH + BRUSH
One of the joys of aging is finding that you can actually use makeup products WITH moisture! I stumbled across Kjaer Weis while searching for a foundation/cream blush brush, and I am glad that I did because I think I also found the perfect blush for me!
Their Blossoming Cream Blush is just perfection! I ordered it based on the reviews and it’s the blush I have been looking for. It’s creamy and blends into the skin beautifully. I don’t wear a lot of heavy make up but do like to be gussied up a bit for filming my YouTube videos! I am going to be trying more of their products, having found this one to be so dang superb. Oh yeah, and the brush is fantastic, too!
Here is a pic of me with the blush on AND the Portrait Ultralip color:
This is just a quick iPhone selfie, but I really do LOVE how the blush looks. And the Ultralip? Fugghedaboutit.
L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE HAND CREAM AND BODY CREAM
I stumbled across L’Occitane (pronounced Lox-ee-tan) when I was picking up some of their fantastic Cuticle Oil. I decided to pick up some Shea Butter Hand Cream and their Shea Butter Hands & Body Extra Gentle Lotion and both are DIVINE! The hand cream is super intense and moisturizing; the other is more of an all-over, light, fast-absorbing lotion. I am in love with the smell of both.
This company is new to me, but I also am using their Imortelle Reset serum (I use it in the morning, every day!) and so far, I feel fresh as a freaking daisy! We have a L’Occitane store (two of them, actually) and I recently went in to pick up a few more things. I love their products and they make me feel French. Trés bien!
OLIVE & JUNE
Last but most certainly not least is Olive & June. I love this company and their products so much, it borders on the obsessive. And I am perfectly okay with that!
I wrote a lengthy blog post about this recently and suffice to say, I craft for a living, but nails are my hobby!
I have been an affiliate for Olive & June for a few years now and the love I share with you about this company is no joke! The mani and pedi systems are life changing. YOU can get good at doing this yourself.
And they offer SO much education to teach you how to get there! If you visit their site, click on the Learn tab to get started!
Also, I have a code that will always save you 20% off your first purchase of any mani or pedi system!
And this concludes my list of what I am into for August 2021. Let’s see if it’ll be a year or more before the next installment.
Thanks for stopping by!
