it'syourmostbeautifulskin | by themani-ac

So, this is actually a four piece collection, I received the above two products:

Bye Bye Lines Serum

This serum is formulated with peptides, caviar extract, sea water, hydrolyzed collagen and algae.

Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream

This eye cream helps hydrate and brighten. It has a blue tint that goes on clear and the formula is infused with caffeine, vitamin C, collagen and peptides.

I’ve used this eye cream before, and I really liked it. It definitely hydrated and reduced my under eye puffiness.

The two products I didn’t receive:

Bye Bye Foundation with SPF 50+

This is the first ever full coverage moisturizer from It. It is infused with full coverage pigments and SPF 50+ suncreen, and formulated to give you weightless, natural coverage that moves with your skin.

I’m a big fan of the Bye Bye Lines foundation, which is my current everyday foundation. If this is anything like Bye Bye Lines, it’s a win.

Heavenly Luxe Bye Bye Foundation Brush No. 22

This brush has a triangle shaped head, to help reach every corner of your face.

As always, I love any set that comes with an It Cosmetics brush. You can never go wrong with a brush from It.

This set is going live tomorrow, 5/18 at 10pm EST… but! It’s on presale now! Go over to QVC to check it out!

In this set we have 4 products and a brush:
– Confidence in an Eye Cream
This is a transforming moisturizing eye cream that can be your AM and PM go to, with its anti-aging technology.
I LOVE Confidence in an Eye Cream. I’ve been using it since I first tried it and it’s great. It has a slight tint to it to help with dark circles in additional to all that anti-aging good stuff.
– Confidence in a Cream
Again, this formula contains anti-aging properties and can be your AM and PM moisturizer.
This is one of my mom’s favorites, any time she’s close to running out she asks if I have any more.
Confidence in a Cleanser
This product cleanses and moisturizes with leaving skin feeling soft and refreshed. It’s a soap and sulfate free cleanser that contains ceramides, hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid and colloidal oatmeal. Bonus: it removes makeup!
Again, another favorite of mine, I’ve been using it since I first tried it and always go back to it! It leaves skin feeling super clean, but not at all dried out.
– Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush
This custon cut brush head hugs the natural contours of your features for effortless coverage.
As always, IT Cosmetics does not disappoint with brushes. I love every brush I try without fail, and this is no exception.
– Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50+
This is IT Cosmetics first ever anti-aging solid serum foundation. It is infused with pure color pigments and SPF 50+ broad-spectrum sun protection. The solid serum technology is combined with ceramides, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid and squalane to help give your skin a flawless look.
An another one. The last time I used this product, I used all of it…literally. That’s a big thing for me because I hardly ever finish foundations, but this one is a keeper.
And that’s that! If you’re looking for some new skin care this year, or if these are some of your favorites, it’s the time to grab them!
This set is available for presale today, Thursday, January 11th 2018, and is the official Today Special Value on QVC on Saturday, January 13th 2018 and is available for that day only! So get on it!

IT Cosmetics Fall 2017 New Product Preview!

Press Sample

Is anyone ready for fall yet? If you aren’t you might be after you see all the awesome new products from IT Cosmetics!

ITCosmeticsfall2017 | by themani-ac

Any skin conern that you have, IT Cosmetics has got you covered. Worried about lines? Redness? Blemishes? They have everything.

There are a ton of new products, so I want to highlight some of my favorites today.

Superhero Liner

I have been waiting for this! I love Superhero Mascara, everyone who tries it loves it, so I was so excited to try the liner! This is a liquid eye liner with a brush tip (my favorite!) in the color super black. It actually contains lash-enhancing peptides, collegan, biotin and kertain! It retails for $24.

Confidence in a Cleanser

Super excited that IT has come out with a cleanser! I’ve had hits and misses with the Confidence line, this it turning into a major hit! It is sulfate free, soap free, and contains Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate to help skin look rejuvenated and restored. Collagen and hyaluronic acid plump the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This retails for $24.

Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Correcting Cream

I’ve been having some redness issues, especially after a minor sunburn I got. I decided that this was the perfect time to try out the correcting cream! And I have to say, I am super impressed! This correcting cream has amazing coverage and a little bit goes a long way. I haven’t had any creasing or cracking and it completely covers any redness. You can wear this alone or under makeup, and it contains colloidal oatmeal, aloe, tumeric, collagen and peptides. This retails for $32.

Bye Bye Lines Foundation

This. I love this foundation. It feels super light on the skin, blends in really nicely and has buildable full coverage. One of the best parts about it is the pump! Some pumps give you way too much product, that’s not the case with this one. It has a little more resistance, so you can control how much you get with each pump and don’t end up wasting a lot of product. I’ve had issues with other liquid foundations looking dry or settling into my skin, but I haven’t had any of those issues with this foundation at all, it’s amazing! It contains anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, caviar extract, argan oil and vitamins. This foundation retails for $38.

Bye Bye Under Eye Concealing Pot

Another awesome concealer from IT. I have some dark circles, and this product takes care of them with no problem. I’ve used other dark circle concealers that crease, no creasing with this guy! This concealer also contains anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. It retails for $28.

I’m actually using all these products everyday and they have quickly grown to become my go-tos. I’m super excited to try all the other products and I’ll be reporting back with full reviews!

IT Cosmetics It’s Your 30 Seconds To Flawless-Looking Skin Collection! – July 2017 QVC Today’s Special Value!

Press Sample

It’s QVC TSV time! Here we have the three piece It’s Your 30 Seconds To Flawless- Looking Skin Collection!

30secondstoflawless | by themani-ac

This collection comes with two, yes, you heard me.. two Supersize Celebration Foundations and Heavenly Luxe Angled Buffing Foundation Brush!

30secondstoflawless2 | by themani-ac

30secondstoflawless4 | by themani-ac

The Celebration Foundation is formulated with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB broad spectrum sunscreen, along with anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, peptides and antioxidants.

The shade I received is Light. I’m a fair in IT Cosmetics products, so this color was too dark for me. I have used the Fair before, and i know that the coverage s relaly good for a powder foundation. It’s a medium coverage, but it’s buildable and it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.

30secondstoflawless3 | by themani-ac

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…. IT Cosmetics brushes are my all time favorite. Love them. I literally haven’t tried one that I haven’t liked.

If you like the Celebration Foundation, it’s time to stock up! You can even keep one for yourself and gift the other!

IT Cosmetics is the QVC Today’s Special Value! This is the It’s All About You Customer Favorites Collection!

ITsallaboutyoucustomerfavorites | by themani-ac

The entire collection, here we have: Supersize CC+ Illumination with SPF 50+, Superhero mascara, Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting Brush and Je Ne Sais Quoi in Rose

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites10

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites11

Supersize CC+ Illumination with SPF 50+. I’ve been using the CC+ Illumination for a while now, it’s one of my go-tos for foundation. It has lighter coverage, but you can build it up. It uses Drops of Light Technology for that radiance and glow, hence being called Illumination. It’s on the thicker side, but blends out very nicely and leaves you with a dewey almost shimery finish from the Drops of Light. You can really only see the slight shimmer up close or when it starts to fade.

The best part is… it has a pump!

ITSuperheroMascara3

The all-time favorite Superhero mascara. I’ve gifted this to 4 people, and all 4 of them have given it rave reviews. It actually is that good.

ITsallaboutyoucustomerfavorites4 | by themani-ac

ITsallaboutyoucustomerfavorites5 | by themani-ac

Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting Brush. I love all IT Cosmetics brushes! It’s not secret and it’s without fail, they make amazing brushes. This brush is smaller, it’s very fluffy and not very dense. I actually have an older version of this brush that’s bigger in circumference and denser.

I did test it out with the CC+ Illumination, what I like to do is dot the product all over my face then blend with the brush. Since the CC+ is a bit on the thicker side, I find that it is better to dot the product before using a small, fluffy brush like this one. Since this brush is so fluffy, you do need to buff for quite a while to get the product to sink in. I also think the brush is a bit too small for it’s purpose, but it does do the job. I can definitely see this brush being great for other makeup as well, like blush of bronzer.

Je Ne Sais Quoi hydrating lip treatment in Rose! I love the Je Ne Sais Quoi in Your Perfect Pink, I use it every day. So I was so excited to see a new shade! I tried it out as soon as I was finished taking pictures lol. I love the logo imprint on the top! The bullet itself is magnetic, just like the other one, which is fantastic… you can just through it in your purse and you don’t need to worry about it opening and getting ruined. As for the shade, you definitely get a hint of a rosey tint. It’s very natural, but I can see a slight difference from my normal lip color. It’s one of those your-lips-but-better products.

All in all, another great QVC TSV from IT Cosmetics. A really nice intro to their products if you haven’t tried them before, or if you just need a refill on some favorite products!

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact Swatches and Review!

Press Sample

You may have seen the Confidence in a Compact in my last IT Cosmetics QVC TSV post, today I have the entire range of shades!

There are 7 different shades. I believe other foundations and concealers only had 4-5 shades, so they are extending their range!

itnewyearnewoconfidence5

This is the inside of Fair, they all look the same so I only took a picture of one in the pan. They are a solid serum formula so they are solid at first but as you swirl your brush (or your finger) the product softens and almost melts into a spreadable foundation.

From left to right: Medium Tan, Medium, Light and Fair

You can obviously tell that Fair is the lightest shade in the bunch, it is significantly lighter than Light. Light and Medium are fairly close, they just have slightly different undertones. Medium looks like it has more of a pink undertone to me. Medium Tan is a pretty accurate color description.

From left to right: Deep, Rich and Tan

Tan is similar to Medium Tan, maybe even a tad lighter. Rich is darker than both Tan and Medium Tan. Finally, there’s Deep, the darkest shade in the range. I actually found it to have a wetter texture than all the other shades, you can kind of see it in the picture, it’s much shinier. I’m not sure if that was just the compact I received, or if the texture is just different for that one.

When I first used this foundation, I’ll be honest, I was not a fan. I used different brushes, primers and techniques and it just was not working for me. Then I realized that the issue was my moisturizer (hence my First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Review came out before this one). After switching moisturizers and coming back to this product… I love it. I’ve been using Fair for about 2-3 weeks now and it’s great. The coverage is light but it’s buildable. One great thing, probably my favorite part, is that is an amazing job with my pores! My pores have been driving me crazy, and when I use this, they totally disappear. I’ve found that this foundation lasts without any caking, drying or flaking and it doesn’t budge.

I like to apply it with my finger and then buff it in with a brush. I feel like I lose less product that way and my finger warms it up, which helps with the buffing. Also, I make sure that my face is super moisturized! When my face was dry, it just sat on top of my skin and wouldn’t spread or buff properly at all. Now that I have the right moisturizer, I really like this foundation and I’ll definitely continue using it!

Confidence in a Cream™ is a moisturizer that I have reviewed before. It can be used as your a.m. and p.m. moisturizer and utilizes cutting-edge, anti-aging technology to deeply hydrate while reducing the look of lines, wrinkles and pores.

Unfortunately, some ingredient in there does not settle well with my skin and I always have a reaction to it. On the other hand, my mother loves it! She uses it at least once a day, and it has become her favorite travel moisturizer. Even though I can’t use it, I still have to say that I love the packaging. It looks and feels like very high end skin care.

itnewyearnewoconfidence8

itnewyearnewoconfidence5

This is the new Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+, which is a foundation. I’m thoroughly obsessed with the packaging! I love the compact. As for the product itself, it’s very interesting. It’s a solid serum foundation, and softens as your swirl your brush in it. You do need to put a bit of pressure on the brush as you swirl to make sure that the foundation softens enough for you to pick up product.

I found this to be a bit cakey for me, it kind of sat on top or my skin, so I actually tried this with a few different IT Heavenly Skin brushes. The first brush that I tried was the one that came in this set, it picked up the product nicely but wasn’t that great for buffing it in. I then switched to the Heavenly Skin CC+ brush, which worked a lot better as it is denser.

Overall, I’m on the fence about this. If you have oilier skin, I can see it working well for you. I have drier skin, especially in the winter, and buffing in this foundation is a bit of a chore for me.

itnewyearnewoconfidence4

This is the new Heavenly Skin™ Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush. This is a smaller, angled brush. Just like all IT brushes it’s super soft and feels really nice on your face. However, this brush is not very dense. As I stated above, I tried it with the Confidence in a Compact and didn’t like it very much. This brush picks up a good amount product, and I can spread it all over my face, but when it comes to buffing… it doesn’t do the job. I think that’s because it’s just not dense enough. A lot of  the product stills stays on the brush and all the while, sits on top of my skin instead of getting buffed into it, if it were more kabuki style, I think it would work better. As is, I’d say this brush would work better with a liquid foundation.

itnewyearnewoconfidence6

itnewyearnewoconfidence7

Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream is an anti-aging, moisturizing eye cream that helps brighten the look of dark circles and visibly smooth the appearance of dry lines. It is blue! I love that haha.

You know that I love Bye Bye Under Eye concealer, so I was excited about the eye cream as well. I have dark circles and I wake up with pretty puffy under eyes. I’ve been using this in the morning before I moisturize, and I have to say… I like it! It definitely helps decrease the puffiness and I’ve actually found myself using under eye concealer less and less. The one thing that would make it even better, would be if it had a cooling effect when you applied it.

Overall, this is a good skincare kit, especially as an intro to IT Cosmetics if you’ve never tried them out. I’m a big fan of IT skin care, makeup and brushes, I use their products and brushes every single day (their brushes are the bomb-dot-com). Although some didn’t work so well me, doesn’t mean they won’t work for you! You’ll never know until you try! So, make sure to check out this kit and other IT Cosmetics products on QVC today!

Unboxed!

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites10

This is the new supersize CC+ Illumination Color Correcting Illuminating Full Coverage Cream SPF 50+. This is formulated with Drops of Light Technology, and is your anti-aging serum, moisturizing day crea. skin-perfecting primer, skin brightening serum, color corrector, full coverage foundation and SPF 50+ all wrapped up into one. And that’s a mouthful!

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites11

It has a pump! That might just be one of my favorite parts.

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites6

So, the consistency is pretty thick, very reminiscent to a full coverage foundation. If you compare it to the Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream, it is definitely thicker. To apply, I found it easiest to dot it around my face, then blend with a beauty blender or the new Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting brush. It blends out nicely and very evenly. The coverage is medium but can be layered for full coverage. I use a little less than one pump for my entire face.

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites7

Just so you can see those Drops of Light Technology…. it’s shimmer! You can’t really see it when you first apply, you just look dewy, but as it comes off throughout the day, the shimmer becomes more apparent.

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites12

This is the new Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Lip Color Wakening Lip Treatment. It’s a hydrating lip treatment that contains essential butters and oils.

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites13

It looks like it has a pink tint, but it’s clear like a lip balm. Something interesting about it…it smells like perfume! It goes on just like a balm, it’s hydrating but I don’t see any color payoff. One of my favorite parts is that the cap is magnetic! No worrying about this opening up in your purse! But a downside that I found was when applying, if you press too hard, it slides back into the tube. Not sure if it’s just the tube that I received though.

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites14

This is Tightline 3-In-1 Black Primer-Eyeliner-Mascara… as the name states, it’s your primer, eyeliner and mascara all in one!

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites15

The wand is super small, and that is so you can get it super close to the roots of your lashes, which lays pigment and ‘lines’ your top lash line. I really like this as a primer for other mascaras. I use this to lengthen my lashes, which it does really well, and it lines my lashes, then I top it with a volumizing mascara.

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites5

This is the Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting brush, it’s super soft, it’s not super dense but it is packed with bristles.

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites8

Here is a comparison of the Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder brush (left) and the  new Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting brush (right). You can see that the Pores Powder brush is rounder, more domed and denser. The Skin Perfecting brush is fluffier and a bit flatter.

ITitsyourcustomerfavorites9

Size-wise the Pores Powder brush is just bigger overall.

I tried both with the CC+ Cream and found that the Skin Perfecting brush did work better with the liquid.

Overall, this is a great collection, I can totally see why these are customer favorites! You can find this set on QVC today, with special pricing! Go and check it out, these might become your new favorites too!

This is the new supersize CC+ Veil Cushion Compact Foundation (also comes with a refill cartridge!). This is an SPF 50+, sheer to medium coverage foundation. It’s a foundation, anti-aging serum, moisturizer and primer all in one! This is in the shade light, but I have three shades to show you below!

You might notice that this looks like a sponge, and that’s because it is! It takes a bit of getting used to, if you don’t press your brush into it hard enough you won’t get that much product.

Angled Radiance Creme Brush for all your blush needs!

YourMostBeautifulSkin7

CC+ Creme Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi.

YourMostBeautifulSkin8

Blurred Lines Lipstick in new shade Je Ne Sais Quoi!

YourMostBeautifulSkin9

These are the foundation colors that I received. You can see a pretty significant difference between the light and fair. I was actually a bit surprised to see that light was close to medium. I’m definitely fair, but I can see using the other shades to slightly contour.

The formula is lightweight, doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all. I dotted it all over my face with my finger first and then buffed it in with the Heavenly Luxe Dual-Ended Complexion Perfection Brush. It is pretty light coverage, but you can definitely build it up. I think I needed about two thin coats to get the coverage that I like. The finish is matte, it’s goes from liquid to powder as you buff it in. I think that would be great for oily skin!

This foundation didn’t cake up on me during application, even in my drier spots. After a few hours of wear, I did start to notice some dry patches, but I did not use any moisturizer or primer for initial testing purposes. But if you do have dry skin, I suggest moisturizing and priming before any foundation.

YourMostBeautifulSkin10

The CC+ Creme Blush and Blurred Lines Lipstick are both in the same color, Je Ne Sais Quoi, which IT says is the perfect pink for all skin tones and ages.

The blush is pretty sheer, which is good, because when you open it, it looks super bright! It adds just the perfect hint of color to your cheeks. If you like a stronger blush, you can build up the color as well.

The lipstick is also on the sheer side but definitely buildable. When first applied it gives you that your-lips-but-better color, then you can build it up to a very pretty pink (and I’m not even a fan of pinks!). What I enjoy most is the smell! It’s like a slight cocoa scent, very very nice. It’s also very moisturizing on the lips.

Overall, another great TSV from IT! I especially love that it comes with two brushes and refill for the foundation. I’m also really loving the lipstick and excited to start using the blush (I’m a blush nube lol).

IT Cosmetics has another TSV on QVC tomorrow, November 20, 2015! Warning: picture heavy!

ittop5superstars

This is the box it comes in, let me warn you… it’s a big box!

ittop5superstars3

All the beautiful products! You get a Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer, Celebration Foundation Illumination, Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Volumizing Mascara, Vitality Lip Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lipstck Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi, Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil, and the new Heavenly Luxe Master Brush.

ittop5superstars4

Here is a close up of the Heavenly Luxe Master Brush. I LOVE this brush. You can use it for foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer or finishing powder. Just swirl your brush in the product and buff it into your skin! It’s absolutely amazing. It’s super soft and pretty dense, so it picks up a good amount of product and buffs beautifully. I’ve been using it with the Celebration Foundation but I’m definitely going to try it for bronzer too.

ittop5superstars5

Celebration Foundation Illumination. It comes with this snazzy little brush in the bottom compartment! I haven’t used the brush, it seems more like a contouring brush rather than a foundation brush.

ITallaboutyou7

Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer, one of my personal favorite and go to products.

ittop5superstars6ittop5superstars7

The Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil. This is a dual sided pencil, one side is the actual pencil and the other is the spooley brush. The product does twist up.

ittop5superstars8ittop5superstars9

Vitality Lip Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lipstick Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi.This is supposed to be a balm, lipstick, lip stain and glossy finish all in one! It has a lot of great ingredients, including plum oil, cherry oil, shea butter and argan!

ittop5superstars10ittop5superstars11

Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Volumizing Mascara. This is a volumizing mascara, conditioning primer, lash-enhancing serum, lash tint and lash comber/curler all in one! You can see that the brush is pretty big in comparison to the whole wand. And I wanted you to see a close up of the brush in the bottom image. And I have to mention that the handle is soft and kind of squishy, very comfortable to hold.

ittop5superstars12

So here we have swatches of everything:

1. Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer in Fair. I love this concealer, it’s my go to concealer and I use it every day. It’s a great full coverage concealer and super easy to blend.

2. Celebration Foundation Illumination in Fair. Let me just say that I never liked powder foundation… until I tried Celebration Foundation from IT. This is super soft and blendable powder. It buffs in to your skin really nicely. This is a little different than the regular Celebration Foundation, it’s more brightening, I’ve done a comparison swatch below.

3. Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil. When I first tried the pencil, it was a little hard and I didn’t get much color payoff. I primed it a little on my hand until I got some color, then tried it on my brows. So test it on your hand before you try it on your brows.

I was skeptical on how universal the color of the pencil is, so I decided to try it on myself and on my mom! I have dark brows, the pencil worked great on me, and it actually worked really well on my mom too. If you have darker brows, you just use more pressure and the color is darker. If you have lighter brows, just use lighter pressure.

I’m also in love with the spooley! I use it to brush my brows before I use the pencil and then after to help blend.

4. Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Volumizing Mascara. From the swatch you can see that this mascara is black, sorry that it’s a little blurry. I found this mascara to be very lengthening and I did notice some extra volume. I’ve only used it holding the brush horizontally, but you can also use it vertically  (just the ball part) for added volume.

5. Vitality Lip Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lipstick Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi. You might have seen this in an Instagram post I published last week. This was one of the first products I tried from this kit and I fell in love. It’s so moisturizing! It feels amazing on. It definitely gives the lips a nice glossy finish, and a super light tint of color, so it’s great for a neutral, every day lip.

Here are the foundation comparison swatches:

ittop5superstars13

The Celebration Foundation Illumination is a bit brighter than the regular Celebration Foundation. The latter is more matte, while the Illumination is definitely more radiant. I also found the Illumination is also a bit more powdery when you swirl your brush in it.

Overall, I think this set is amazing. Definitely chock full of superstar products. I highly suggest this set if you haven’t tried IT Cosmetics yet, or even if you have! It’s full of staples that I now use every day.

So this goes on sale on QVC at midnight, so the super early morning of November 20th. I don’t know the price offhand, but the TSV are always good deals.

What are your favorite IT products? Are you going to pick this up?
