It Cosmetics

A Vital new collection from IT Cosmetics!

It’s that time ladies!  Summer beauty has hit QVC like a time bomb.  The July insider has all sorts of kits and bits that you really need to check out!

The first one that nabbed my attention is the IT Cosmetics It Cosmetics 5-pc Vitality Color Collection.  You already know that I have a bit of an obsession with these products, as seen by my mad love here.  But this kit is fantastic!  I actually already have two tubes of concealer but how can you pass this up?

For $60 you get a jumbo size Bye Bye Undereye and the dual sided concealer brush. I don’t have this brush, so I’m really looking forward to this.  Right now, I use a soft focus eye brush from BE, which is very similar to the smaller side.  That alone really could be the best deal.  But, like every good ginsu knife commercial, you get so much more!  I waited and waited and waited for the Vitality Face Disc with the Jumbo Luxe Face Brush, and it finally came off of wiat list.  But, given that the face disc and brush was $48, this is clearly the winning combo.

Nab this kit while you can!  You can order NOW ONE TIME or AUTO DELIVERY, with a new kit shipping in 6 months with a different lippie.  If you prefer to wait until the air date on July 27th, you can order ONE TIME or AUTO DELIVERY.t now, in this kit, you get those items as well.  The Vitality Face Disc is a jumbo compact with a beautiful rosy blush, a peachy luminizer, and a matte bronzer.  If you have the My Sculpted Face kit, this is basically the three best parts of that kit with the amazing brsuh. I am such a fan of the IT brushes that I think I’d probably pay $60 for the ginormous face brush alone!  Yes well.  But — you also get the Vitality Lip Flush in Je Ne Sais Quoi.  I have reviewed the lippies before, and this color is my all time fave because even though it looks clear in the tube, it actually becomes the best shade of pink for every gal.

I should have this by Monday and I’ll be sure to review the face disc for you then!
Happy glossing!

 

 

 

 

Silk Road

I’m back!  Did you miss me?  I’m sorry I’ve been off the blog for a while, it’s been a crazy few months.  But here we go:

On Friday, I received the IT Cosmetics No Tug Silk Eyeliner trio.  This trio is brand new to QVC and contains three colors of liner, which is a new product for IT Cosmetics.

I am here to tell you, these little beauties have usurped my Holy Grail Urban Decay 24/7 liners!  Why?  Because even though there are only 3 colors right now, they are simply delicious.

These luxe liners glide on your lids with no pulling or tugging.  These babies are buttery and supple, but thanks to the silk that is included, they flex and bend with your every movement.  I did a test last night; I put swatches of these, and the corresponding shades of UD on my hand.  That was about 6pm; I went about my evening, and washed my hands a few times.  I did dishes.  I took a shower this morning.  Guess what liner was still on my hand looking fresh and beautiful?  IT.

The other key benefit to these new liners is that they are paraben free, and are chalk full of anti aging benefits like silk, collegen, and vitamins E and C.  For someone like me, who has a bit of gravity and droopy lids to deal with, that is important.

The trio includes a matte deep black shade, a matte rich brown shade, and a matte rich plum shade, and is $26 on QVC.  Since that makes them less than $10 each, it’s a steal.  The shades are richly pigmented but are also soft.  They look natural and are smudgeable and bendable for about 30 seconds before they set; once they set, they do not move.  I even smudged them on my lower lids – something I rarely do – and they stayed.  No raccoon eyes!

But don’t take my word for it, try them for yourselves!

Getting cheeky

You guys know that I have an obsession with the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes. I love they way they last all day and how blendable they are.  But, move over you tarte!  Heather my love, there’s a new Sheriff in town!

I recently discovered the IT Cosmetics Vitality Cheek Flush.  This gorgeous blush, is a cheek stain and powder in one, and it really packs a punch.  Like all the other IT products, these were developed with plastic services, and is hydrating, brightening, and antiaging to boot!

Boosted with the Hydra-Luxe technology IT has become known for, the Vitality Flush has yummy ingredients like plum oil, cherry oil, hyaluronic acid, pomegranate, seaweed extract, grape seed, aloe, and jojoba.  WOW that was a mouthful!  What it means is that all of these things work together to treat, hydrate, condition, and nourish your skin.  And it stays on for days.  I mean days!

Since it’s talc free, there are no fillers.  that means this is pure amazing pigment, which gives you a pop of color, giving you a glow.  A little sweep, and you have a healthy glow.  A bit more, and you have just been out in the sun.

The brush that comes with the duo is plush and soft, and is angled specifically to help you get that pop on your cheeks, and blend it up in to your hairline for a natural look.  Just a smidge though, because this is powerful stuff!  The IT Cosmetics brushes are absolutely lovely.  while I wish they aweren’t made in China, they are so soft and luxurious, I cna’t bear to part with them.  The blush is make in the USA, with no parabens or other ickies.

There are three colors to choose from:

Pretty in Peony, a bright pop of rose pink with peach shimmer

Radiant in Rose, a deep rose pink

Magical in Mauve, an eggplant plum

L-R: Peony, Rose, Mauve

You can see these products in action on QVC this weekend!  A blush / brush duo is $35.  Check out Friday night beauty tonight!

You can also purchase the blushes on Beauty.com for $24.

 

You’re welcome!

This is IT!

Check it out!  IT Cosmetics is launching a new TSV on QVC this Friday, January 13th.  Included in the set are:

  • Bye Bye Under Eye concealer
  • Bye Bye Pores HD micro finishing powder
  • The new dual ended Concealer Brush for an airbrushed finish
  • Heavenly Luxe powder brush, which has become famous as the BEST foundation or powder brush out there.  This is the same brush that Tarte sells with its Amazonian Clay foundation, and I now0 own three of them.  I can’t get enough!
These products were developed with plastic surgeons to help your skin appear younger, and retain elasticity.  IT Cosmetics actually stands for Innovative Technology, and they contain specific ingredients to help your skin stay young.
The Bye Bye Under Eye Antiaging Concealer is a full-coverage concealer that delivers highly pigmented coverage that won’t crease or crack.  I use this concealer, and love the way a tiny dab will cover any spot you might have.  This is an ultra pigmented concealer, and the new brush allows you to blend it flawlessly.  I personally do not have the new concealer brush, which has at one end, and detailed brush, and a larger blush size fluffy brush at the other.  These tools allow you to flawlessly airbrush the finish after you apply the concealer.  I use a BE soft focus brush to achieve a similar result.  I really love this concealer, but my only negative mark is that it does contain parabens, which are a no no in my book.  Jamie, I love you, really I do, but please get rid of the ickies!
Promise:  A
Performance:  A
Verdict:  B since there are parabens.
The brush and concealer are $26 retail on QVC as a duo, and the concealer is $24 elsewhere.  This new brush is a Q exclusive.
Bye Bye Pores Antiaging Silk HD Micro-Powder is a colorless face-finishing powder that instantly blurs away pores, fines lines, and imperfections to give you a flawless, airbrushed finish. It absorbs oil and shine, sets makeup, and helps to diffuse the appearance of wrinkles and pores.  This is very similar to the Make Up For Ever HD Finishing powder, and they both contain primarily Silica.   Bye Bye Pores however has several added ingredients such as Collagen, Vitamins A, C, E & K, and silk, to create a plumping and smoothing appearance, and help ward off free radicals.  The vitamin K helps reduce discoloration.  In fact, Vitamin K is a primary ingredient in most dark spot removers!  This powder creates a flawless canvas.  I LOVE this powder!  There is no talc to make you look chalky, and no parabens.  Yay!
Promise:  A
Performance:  A- (it takes some practice to learn how to apply it without looking like Casper.  A teeny bit goes a long way)
Verdict: A-
This powder is $24 retail, or $38 on the Q with the brush.
Application tip learned from trial and error:  I take the little puff that is included, and puff a bit of powder on the back of my hand.  Then I take the big brush and dip it in my hand, buffing the powder on my face.  
I own these products and I love them.  This is a great price for four pieces, and I would jump on the deal while you can!  I am tempted to order this just for the new brush and to stock up .
This is available for early ordering in two ways:
For Auto Delivery every four months:  A224066 or a one time shipment A220840, each $49.98 plus Tax/S&H.

A Cable Car in Sydney

Today, I was totally and completely exhausted.  Normally when I have no sleep I say f*%$ it and don’t do my makeup but I was just feeling blah and decided to pick myself up.

The lighting was a bit tricky this morning in my house, but I think yo uget the idea.  Please ignore the grease puddle on my nose; I”m not sure how to get rid of this yet.

So, I started with:
Mally Poreless Perfection Primer

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation in Light

BE Prime Time for Eyes

BE Sydeny patted on lid and buffed on browbone

BE Cable Car in crease

BE Buxom Stay There in Collie over Sydney on upper lid.

I love the neutal but nice pop this look gives and will probably do a variation on it tomorrow!

Next up:  Another look with shadows that are still unopened plus a big ass haul from Beauty.com and my Sephora obsession this month
