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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

IT Cosmetics IT’s All About You Four-Piece Customer Favorites Collection!– June QVC Today’s Special Value!

Disclaimer: these items were sent to me for review

QVC has another IT Cosmetics Today’s Special Value coming tomorrow! And I happen to have it here! Warning: Picture heavy.

ITallaboutyou ITallaboutyou1 copySo here you have the It’s All About You 4 Piece Customer Favorites Collection! The set includes: the Naturally Pretty Face Palette, Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, Celebration Foundation SPF 50 and Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush.

I got the set in fair, so I’m going to assume they are going to be offering a range of shades.

ITallaboutyou2 ITallaboutyou3 ITallaboutyou4ITallaboutyou12This is the Celebration Foundation SPF 50 in Fair. It is a powder foundation, which I haven’t used in a very long time, since I decided that I have dry skin. But I was pleasantly surprised with this one! It doesn’t look cakey or too powdery. I used it with the Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush (that came with the set) and applied in a circular motion. It has lighter coverage, but is definitely buildable. It even has SPF 50, which is awesome! Especially with a powder foundation.

ITallaboutyou5 ITallaboutyou6 ITallaboutyou11This is the Naturally Pretty Face Palette. Here you have the Vitality Matte Bronzer in Warmth, the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi, Hello Light Creme in Radiance and Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder in Translucent. These swatches have 2-3 layers of product to show the color better. The blush is the most pigmented so a little will go a long way. I am loving the bronzer! It gives me the perfect amount of color to warm up my very pale face. The Hello Light Creme is also very nice, I really like it along my cheekbones and under my eyebrows. Keep in mind that it is a creme, and so it is easier to use with your finger, as you don’t pick up much product with a brush. The Pressed Powder is also great, I used it on top of the Bye Bye Under Eye and over my MAC Pro Longwear concealer. It sets makeup really nicely, gets rid of any unwanted shine, and best of all.. doesn’t get cakey!

ITallaboutyou7 ITallaboutyou14The Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, which you may have seen in my Current Makeup Favorites post. I’ve been really liking the medium for my dark circles and was exciting to try the fair! A tiny bit goes a very long way with this product. It’s very thick, so I like to apply it with my fingers opposed to a brush because I can warm up the product and it seems to spread and blend better that way. You can warm up the product then use a brush to blend as well.

ITallaboutyou8 ITallaboutyou9 ITallaboutyou10Let me just start by saying that I love the IT Cosmetics brushes, they are my new favorites, and I use them every day without fail. This is the Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush. It has two sides, the larger side and smaller side. Both are very fluffy and soft, and not too dense so they don’t soak up product. You can use both sides for foundation and concealer. I really enjoyed the larger side with the Celebration Foundation, it easily buffed the product in and gave a pretty flawless finish. I tried the smaller side with both the Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and my usual MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. I liked it a little bit better with the Pro Longwear because it is more liquidy and easier to spread with the brush.

Overall, I love this set! No wonder these products are customer favorites! If you like face palettes, or just want to try something new.. this is for you! These are all products that you can, and definitely will, use every day.

I can’t disclose the actual price, but I can say that is is retailed at $150 but will cost less them $60! That is a fantastic price and totally worth it. So get ready, because the special pricing is going live on QVC tomorrow at 8am! You don’t want to miss out!

IT Cosmetics CC+ Your Way To Radiant Skin! Five-Piece Collection– March QVC Today’s Special Value

I’ve got something exciting for you all today! It’s QVC’s March 27th Today’s Special Value… IT Cosmetics CC+ Your Way To Radiant Skin collection! Warning: very picture heavy

Disclaimer: This was sent to me for review

itradientskin

So here we have the whole collection. It includes: Your Skin But Better Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC+ Cream Illumination (that’s a mouthful lol), Live, Love, Laugh Anti-Aging Vitality Face Disc, Heavenly Luxe Radiance Wand Brush, Luxe High Performance Anti-Aging Eye Shadow Trio in Pretty in Spring and the No-Tug Dual Airbrush Eyeshadow Brush.

itradientskin7 itradientskin8This is the CC+ cream, it’s a new product, here is a little more about it:

“Experience your cult-favorite multi-tasking beauty miracle, now in an illuminating formula that gives you the appearance of a lit-from-within glow. It’s full coverage foundation, SPF 50 + UVA/UVB sunscreen, brightening color corrector, anti-aging serum, pore-minimizing primer, dark spot corrector and moisturizing day cream all in one step!”

First and foremost, I LOVE that it has a pump! It makes everything way less messy and is much better for storage.

itradientskin11 itradientskin12Here is one pump, the first pump, on my arm… as you can see its pretty dark for me. I got the shade medium, and I’m very pale, so I wasn’t expecting it to match me lol I also wasn’t expecting it to be as thick as it was. I thought it would be more like a BB Cream, but it’s closer to a foundation consistency, kind of like a sunscreen/foundation texture. Also, gotta love that SPF 50, my pale face really appreciates it. I don’t think I’ve ever some across a facial product with that high an SPF.

I’m not sure if you’ll be able to choose colors with this kit, so be aware of that.

itradientskin2itradientskin3
itradiantskin19This is the Live, Love, Laugh Anti-Aging Vitality Face Disc. Here is a little about it:

“Discover your most radiant, youthful look with this anti-aging powerhouse! It includes a matte bronzer, illuminating powder and blush stain, formulated with anti-aging, skin-loving ingredients and talc-free, high-performance pigments.”

This is your quintessential face palette.. if that’s the correct term. It has your bronzer, blush and highlight, all very smooth and easy to blend. The bronzer is matte, but pretty light. I’m pretty pale, and it gives me just a touch of color, a light overall bronze. The highlight is really nice, it’s a golden shade and gives a nice glow. It’s not super shiny or overwhelming. The blush is the most pigmented of the bunch. It’s super bright, but is easily blended and diffused. You just need a little bit to pack a punch. I feel like the highlight and blush would work on a variety of skin tones.

itradiantskin18This is the Luxe High-Performance Anti-Aging Eye Shadow Trio in Pretty in Spring. This is a new product, here is more about it:

“Give your eyelids the naturally pretty, anti-aging, skin-loving shades they deserve! This eyeshadow trio is packed with high-performance pigments and anti-aging ingredients that help blur away the look of imperfections. The trio includes three new spring-inspired shades.”

Not only do you get three shades, you get a secret compartment with a mirror and two of those foam makeup applicators! I thought that was great. As for the shades, I think they’re great for a no-makeup makeup look. They’re very toned down and neutral. They’re pigmented, but the colors are so neutral that sometimes it looks like you have none of it on.. which might be the point. The way I’ve used them is the middle shade all over the lid, the darkest in the crease and the lightest as a highlight. I’ve also used the lightest shade all over the lid, with a mix of the two other shades in the crease.

The lightest shade might be my favorite here because it’s nice and glowy and shimmery without being glittery. All the shades are very buttery and go on super smooth. I did find that it creased after a while, and by a while I mean a while. I think it was about 16 hours, mind you, I did not wear primer underneath. I also found the the eyeshadow compartment a little hard to open, it might be because my nails are long though.

itradientskin9itradientskin10itradiantskin14 itradiantskin13Wanted to give you guys a good overview of what the brushes look like, here is more about them:

Heavenly Luxe Radiance Wand Brush (new)

“Get your most radiant look with the stroke of a brush! This ultra-luxe, domed brush is designed for flawless application of your bronzing, illuminating and blush shades.”

This brush is massive! It has a super long handle, you can see how long it is in the first picture. The brush itself is big and really fluffy but not very dense. It’s a great all over face brush, I did try it with all the products in the Vitality Face Disc. I found that it did a nice job with overall bronzing and blush, since it is big and fluffy, it diffuses the color nicely. It even worked well to highlight. But because the brush isn’t too dense, it isn’t ideal for contour. You can get a light contour, if that’s what you’re after.

No-Tug Dual Airbrush Eyeshadow Brush

“Give your eyelids an airbrush finish! This cutting-edge, dual-ended eyeshadow brush applied shades flawlessly without tugging on the delicate skin of your eyelids.”

The all-over side is fluffy, but not too dense, so it’s great for diffusing color and blending. The smudge side is shorter, thinner, and denser.

I tried this brush a few ways… the first day that I used it, I used the smudge side for all over eyeshadow and used the all-over side for my crease. The smudger, did the job but I found it too thin and short for that. On the second day, I used the all-over brush for my lid color and my crease, and used the smudger to… smudge! It definitely did better with that, but I think it’s a little wide and I wish the edges were a little more rounded, it’s a little bit too square for my taste. The all-over brush is fantastic. You can use the side to swipe color all over your lids, then use the top for crease/blending.

I also love that the brushes have matte handles to match the rest of the packaging. It’s not only pretty, it helps with grip too.

Overall, I think this collection is great, it has everything you need for an everyday look. I also love the packaging of everything! If you like that no-makeup makeup look or are new to makeup, this is something you should really check out.

I haven’t been told the actual price, but I know the range and for everything that you get, it’s super affordable. Make sure to tune in to QVC on Friday, March 27th at midnight, 9 am, 2pm and 9pm or visit QVC.com starting midnight Friday, March 27th!
