It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Review & Swatch

If you need a full coverage, cruelty free powder foundation, then you definitely need to check out the following review on It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation!

It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation

All skin types can use this. It has the anti-aging benefits of hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, rose, aloe, niacin, and silk.  It was designed for those who have hyperpigmentation, rosacea, under eye circles, noticeable pores and wrinkles. This will really help, and you won’t look older, either. When you smile, you’re not going to “crack or crease,” as Jamie Kern, the Founder of It Cosmetics has said she had always experienced in the past with other foundations. This was tested for 3 years before coming to the market and was developed by plastic surgeons.

It feels very creamy, and applied very easily. Lasted all day!  The It Cosmetics Celebration is made without talc, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, and phthalates.

The dual sided compact has the powder and mirror on top, and a small compartment that is under the powder that conceals a rubber sponge to apply wet or dry.

This is designed to be used with either the It Cosmetics Dual Airbrush Foundation Concealer brush or the one that I received, the Heavenly Luxe Flat Top Buffing Foundation Brush. (This can be bought separately at It Cosmetics, or included  in a deal at QVC.)

Swatch of the It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation in Light

The Light shade was perfect for me. In fact, it was hard to photograph, because it blended in so smoothly and naturally. I knew that the Fair shade would be great, as the last purchase I made from It Cosmetics was the CC+ Cream with SPF 50+.  I purchased that in the color Light, which is the palest shade.

The It Cosmetics Celebration is available in Fair, Light, (Medium) Tan, and Rich.

Recommendation for It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation:

My skin can sometimes get dry patches, and I found that the way to have a beautiful “flawless” look is to apply my moisturizer and a primer  prior to using the Celebration Foundation. If you don’t have that issue, then you probably won’t have to do anything but apply the Foundation and, as advertised, in less than a minute you should be done!

No cons!

CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ from IT Cosmetics: The Best!

IT Cosmetics: Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ has become my new favorite product, although the Tightline Full Lash Length Primer is a very close second. I believe that IT Cosmetics has indeed delivered the “ultimate anti-aging multi-tasker!”

CC+ Cream is cruelty free, paraben free and talc free! It is a full coverage, color-correcting cream, and anti-aging serum, offering broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+ protection, all in one tube! This is a non-chemical physical only sunscreen. 

It Cosmetics  CC+ cream

CC+ Cream is incredible. It’s very different because it’s a full-coverage, color-correcting cream, and it can make up your entire skin care routine. This highly pigmented, multitasking  CC+ Cream won’t crease or crack in fine lines, and it will give you a “Your Skin But Better™” glow.

Your Most Beautiful You Collection from IT Cosmetics

Your Most Beautiful You

Your Most Beautiful You from IT Cosmetics will be Today’s Special Value (TSV) for one day only, Saturday, July 13, and only on QVC and QVC.com. This six-piece anti-aging collection helps you get your most beautiful skin.

Your Most Beautiful You Six-Piece Collection

Your Most Beautiful You Collection It Cosmetics

Your Most Beautiful You: Your Brows But Better

Your Brows But Better is a great product because it really looks like real hair when you pencil it on your brows. The Pencil is universal, because it has special technology that allows it to be used on brows of all colors, and IT Cosmetics writes that it will cover up the gray hairs, too

 Your Most Beautiful You It Cosmetics

The other end of the Pencil is a spooley brush. Lightly brush your brows with the spooley brush, and you will have a very natural-looking brow.Also included in the box is a pamphlet that has a brow diagram for applying.

Your Most Beautiful You: Bye Bye Under Eye & Heavenly Luxe Dual Airbrush Foundation/Concealer Brush

 Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer in a choice of: Light, Medium, Tan or Deep:

It Cosmetics Your Most Beautiful You

 Your Most Beautiful You It Cosmetics

The Bye Bye Under Eye is in a supersize. The Anti-Aging Vitamin K & Collagen Concealer was created to be a full coverage concealer, one that would allow someone to use it and say “bye-bye” to under eye issues. What’s great about Bye Bye Under Eye? Find a color match, and you have a waterproof formula that will not budge. It contains Vitamins K, A, C, E and Collagen, which It Cosmetics has written has been “clinically proven to reduce under eye puffiness and discoloration while strengthening the delicate skin of the under eye area.”

It is hypo-allergenic and non-comedogenic. Do your usual morning routine of moisturizing, and sunscreen, etc., and then pat the tiniest amount on areas that you want covered. When I write the tiniest, I mean it. This will cover an amazing amount with the smallest drop. Put a little bit of powder over it, and you’re set. It won’t come off until you remove it. Great formula!

The Dual Airbrush Foundation/Concealer Brush is to help achieve a flawless application. If you’ve never used an IT Cosmetics brush before, I promise you will not be disappointed. They are the best!

Your Most Beautiful You: Hello Light Luminizer & Heavenly Luxe Pointed Precision Complexion Brush

r Most Beautiful You It Cosmetics

I love IT Cosmetics brushes! They are beautifully made, of nice weight, and I had no issues with losing any of the hairs on the brush above or the Dual Airbrush Foundation/Concealer Brush. So, not only do you get the brush, but you also the Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Luminizer!

Paraben-free, it’s your perfect finishing step for the look of light, lift, illumination, and natural radiance.

Using the Heavenly Luxe Pointed Complexion Brush, you can follow the face chart provided and lightly brush creme over the areas of your face you wish to appear “lifted, add light to, or bring forward.” That would the center of your forehead, above your brows, under your eyes, above your cheekbones, or straight down the bridge of your nose. You can apply  all over for a “lit-from-within glow.”

This is great because it works well on bare skin or over foundation.

Your Most Beautiful You: Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain

Your Most Beautiful You It Cosmetics

This is the worldwide launch of IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain! Your Most Beautiful You Collection has this in Je Ne Sais Quoi, a beautiful sheer pink with a little bit of sparkle. This is so moisturizing and has just the right bit of color for me; just beautiful. It’s no wonder it makes my lips feel so smooth…it is infused with nine ulta-rich butter and oils. It also has collagen, peptides and the very hydrating hyaluronic acid.

It Cosmetics Your Most Beautiful You

I most definitely recommend that you check out Your Most Beautiful You Collection from IT Cosmetics on Today’s Special Value (TSV), Saturday, July 13, on QVC and QVC.com.

It Cosmetics Luxe Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Palette Review

It Cosmetics Luxe Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Palette: Photos and Swatches

It Cosmetics goal was to create intense pigments for a naturally pretty look and to formulate the eyeshadows to “diffuse the look of lines and wrinkles on the eyes and lids.”

It Cosmetics is certified cruelty free by PETA!

It Cosmetics Packaging:

This beautiful Palette is housed in a faux leather case that reminds me of a large wallet, and it is lightweight enough to not only take on a trip, but to keep in your handbag. The Palette ribbon pull allows one to easily take out the dual ended brush, and there are little magnets on the inside of the case to keep the Palette safely secured.

A piece of plastic covers the shadows when you open the Palette. A great mirror!

You can see the dual ended brush (above) that is also included in the Palette.

I used Ipanema as an eyeliner

 

Thoughts About It Cosmetics Palette:

I’ve tried It Cosmetics’ eyeshadows previously, so I had very high expectations, and I was excited to be able to sample more colors. This is a superb Palette!

I love that in addition to being cruelty free, all the eyeshadows are free of  talc, parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, and phthalate free.

They are non-comedongenic (won’t clog your pores ) and hypo-allergenic–great news for those of us with sensitive eyes. Each eyeshadow is infused with anti-aging ingredients: hydrolyzed collagen to plump lines, anti-oxidants to ward off free radicals, Acai, Vitamins A, C & E, and green tea extract, which helps to target puffiness.

It Cosmetics advertises their eyeshadows as being able to last all day. Do they?  Yes!! I wore a primer, and had zero fall out! I even “wore” swatches on my arm all day to test out how it fared with periodically rubbing my arm during the day. You’ll notice that one of the swatch photos was taken three hours into testing!

This is a very versatile Palette. There are matte and shimmer shades, and the eyeshadows can be used as eyeliners, too, of course.  The eyeshadow can be applied both dry and wet; applying them wet gives a great extra pop of color! The shadows are very pigmented, and are beautiful, rich colors.

I love that the eyeshadows are so soft and whether you have to worry about fine lines or not, it’s nice to have such silky shadows to use.

It is possible to get a really nice swatch of color on your eyes with just one gentle swipe of the brush. The dual ended brush is actually quite good, although not quite up to the quality of the brushes that It Cosmetics sells separately. I don’t think it’s a big deal though, considering that the Palette is very fairly priced at $38.00; and you’re getting 12 wonderful eyeshadows, a mirror, and the brush.
