It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection is a four piece cruelty free skincare collection. This is a QVC Today’s Special Value, and it’s actually a first-ever skincare TSV! This will debut on QVC today, Saturday, January 14, 2017 at midnight (ET). It will be offered for one day only until 11:59 p.m. (PT) on Saturday.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

Let’s start with the Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream. It Cosmetics advertises it as a solution for a smoother, brighter-looking eye area.  This comes in a 0.5 oz jar. That’s right, a jar. Insert a sad face here! I really am not a fan of skincare products in a jar, but I totally understand why this can’t be in a tube. It is way to thick.  When I wake up in the very early hours every morning (with dogs and children), I’m tired, and my eyes look very tired. So, I’m excited to give this a real trial. However, since I haven’t even used it for a full two weeks, I can’t say what the long-term results will be.

However, I do like the feeling of the cream under my eyes. It feels very cool when applied, and it definitely quickly smooths out the dry lines becuase it’s so moisturizing. It can be used both in the morning and at night, although I find I need it most in the morning. The cream has a pretty blue tint, and it’s infused with caffeine, vitamin C, collagen and peptides.  Due to it’s thickness, a little cream is all that is needed.

The next product in the It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection is Confidence in a Cream. This can be used on all skin types and can be used in the morning and evening. Unfortunately, while I love that this is in a big jar–I’m also sad that it’s housed in a jar. Make sure you wash your hands every time before you put your fingers into the jar.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

I do love that Confidence in a Cream has a very smooth, creamy texture. When applied, I felt that it was incredibly moisturizing, and my skin looked great. It may or may not be an issue for you, but to my nose, there was a citrus scent to the Confidence in a Cream that I felt lingered on my skin.

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

New in this Collection is Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50+. This is the first time ever for an anti-aging solid serum foundation. This is advertised as a full-coverage foundation, and you choose your shade. There are seven shades from which to choose. Simply buff it onto your skin using the Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush. Or, you can use the sponge that is included in the compact. I suppose that it depends on how heavy-handed you are, so I found that this Foundation could be applied with a sheer coverage, and then built up as you wish.

Again, this had the same citrus scent as the Confidence in a Cream, and that may or may not be an issue for you. I live in New England where one day it can be minus three degrees Fahrenheit, then later in the week, it can be a “balmy” forty degrees! Therefore, I’m not sure this is the best foundation for me. I feel that if I didn’t have dry skin issues it might have worked, and maybe I just need to spend more time applying a thicker layer of moisurizer beforehand. However, if this isn’t a problem for you, then this Foundation may be just what you’re looking for!

It Cosmetics New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

I love It Cosmetics brushes, and the new Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush is another winner! This is a custom-cut brush head for an airbrushed look.

QVC Item #A287731 is $79.96 (with free shipping and handling), and sold separately, it would price out to be $182.00. Let me know if you’re going to order this, and your thoughts.

It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

The It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara launched this past January, and I’m so glad that I was given the opporutunity to try it. I have quite a collection of mascaras by It Cosmetics, because they all work for me. Here are some:

The It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

 

This is It Cosmetics first mascara in over 3 yrs, and Jamie Kern (the It Cosmetics founder) has said, “It’s a superhero for your lashes. You do it all, now your mascara does, too.” So, let me tell you about the It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. The mascara has super volume, length, and super elastic stretch. It has been clinically proven to increase the look of your lash volume by, ready for this…500 percent, and that’s in just one coat. It looks crazy written down, but the mascara really did work to increase my lashes. However, it’s not only the formula, it’s also the brush that makes this mascara special.

So, let’s have a look at the brush. The bristles on the mascara wand are cut to different lengths. What does that do? It means that every lash gets volume at the same time with the amazing formula. The elastic stretch technology that It Cosmetics uses in the formula coated my eyelashes in super black color, which I love! Like all of It Cosmetics products, it has anti-aging properties, so it’s great for your lashes.

How do you apply the mascara? Here’s a great graphic.

 It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

As you can clearly see, the It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara does give you a gorgeous lift, and it adds amazing length with no clumping and no flaking!

Does it transform your lashes? It does. I didn’t need any more than one coat on my lashes, and a second coat did make my lashes look like I had on long, very dramatic false eyelashes! The only thing that I might recommend is to do what I had to–and that’s wipe off some of the formula from the bristles, as I don’t think you need to lay it on so thick with this great formula. 

The mascara is amazing because it did hold up my lashes up all day, and I have to comment again that I just love the incredible super black color!

I believe it was Jamie Kern herself who pointed out during the launch of the It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara that when you’re tired, your eyes show it. And, when your lashes are held up, you really look so much more wide awake, and more youthful.

You can purchase the mascara at It Cosmetics or at Ulta Beauty. The price of $24 is definitely worth the price, and it’s great for those with sensitive eyes.

Here’s my superhero nail art that I posted to my Instagram account:

It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara Final Thoughts:

Is the It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara the best It Cosmetics mascara? Well, it’s phenomenal, but I also like other mascaras that I have purchased from them because they, too, are great in the ways that they work their magic. I am going to cop out and write, it’s one of their best!

 

As you can see, I love It Cosmetics products!

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.

IT Cosmetics: Vitality Anti-Aging Collection

IT Cosmetics Vitality Anti-Aging Collection

Vitality Anti-Aging Collection is new from IT Cosmetics! That’s exciting because not only does IT Cosmetics, by Jamie Kern, have “innovative technology cosmetics,” but it is also certified cruelty free by Peta!

it Cosmetics generously sent several products for me to review.

Five pieces in IT Cosmetics Vitality Anti-Aging Collection:

Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc, Bye Bye Under Eye, two cosmetic brushes, and Vitality Lip Flush. Keep reading to find out all about them!

Vitality Anti-Aging Collection: Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc:

As I pulled the large disc out of the box, I was happy to see that it is enclosed in extra cardboard (white, pictured below) so that not only did my bronzer, blush, and illuminator arrive safely, but the large mirror was unbroken!

Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disk is a waterproof anti-aging matte bronzer, brightening blush tint, and radiance illuminator:

It Cosmetics Vitality Face Disc is quite large in size (22.22 g 0.78 oz.), and includes a large mirror inside.  It is infused with anti-aging, hydrating ingredients. The disc has hydrolyzed collagen, peptides & drops of light™ technology, plus vitamins A, C, E, grapeseed, green tea, slim and aloe.

This is free of: talc, paraben, sulfate, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, and phthalates. It is hypo-allergenic and non-comedogenic. Those wishing to avoid “cones” should note that there is dimethicone in this product.

How do you use IT Cosmetics Vitality Face Disc?

Full directions, with a color diagram, are given on the back of the box.

You can use the Jumbo Mega Luxe Powder Brush (reviewed later in the post), and apply the bronzer to those areas of your face that you would like a little more color. For example,  you can use the bronzer for color across your forehead, nose and chin; also the bronzer is excellent to put underneath your cheekbones and your jawline for dimension.

Use the luminating radiance powder on the areas of your face where you want light and illumination; this would be along the top-side of your cheek bones and your  brow bones.

The vitality blush may be applied to the apples of your cheeks for a really nice looking glow.

If you want a little shimmer in your bronzer, you just have to swirl your brush in both the matte bronzer, and the laminating powder.

I love that this is waterproof, and that, when applied correctly, is sure to give your face, as advertised, “a naturally pretty glow of health and vitality to your face….” I’ve always read that using bronzer is the secret to always having a youthful glow, and it Cosmetics Vitality Disc will most certainly help you to achieve that. I would completely agree with it Cosmetics that the Vitality Face Disc is an “all-in-one makeup must-have.”

 Vitality Anti-Aging Collection: Bye Bye Under Eye

Bye Bye Under Eye 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. Make sure you 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. Really great formula!

To help you with your color choice, the above photo is courtesy of it Cosmetics, as I only can describe the light color. I have a very fair complexion; therefore, light worked perfectly for me. However, as you can see, the medium would work for 70% of skin tones.

Bye Bye Under Eye has been a bestseller product for it Cosmetics, and now a super-size (1 oz.) is available!  I just can’t imagine how long it is going to last. You need just a drop of the product to cover a lot of area, so to have this super size is incredible.

Vitality Anti-Aging Cosmetic Brushes:

Heavenly Luxe Ultra-Plush Jumbo Powder Brush and Heavenly Luxe Dual Airbrush Concealer/Foundation Brush

The makeup brushes arrived nicely package in a tube, and they quickly fluffed right out and felt unbelievably soft. If you notice the label on the top brush container (there is also one on the container below that is not showing) it reads: Made in China.

However! I emailed it Cosmetics, and they have assured me, in writing, “Our brushes and all of our products are cruelty free. Our brushes are made of cruelty free synthetic hair and we never test on animals.”

So, admire away! The top brush is the Jumbo Mega Luxe Powder Brush. It really is luxe; there are more than 120,000 hairs used to create this brush.

The Dual Airbrush Foundation/Concealer Brush will help you achieve a flawless application.

Not only do I love that the brushes are cruelty free and animal free, but I would never know that they are synthetic. They are beautifully made, of nice weight, and I had no issues with losing any of the hairs on the brushes.

The fifth product in IT Cosmetics Vitality Anti-Aging Collection:

Do you just want a “flush of color on your lips?” Then check out it Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush in Je Ne Sais Quoi.

it cosmetics

The color is a sheer pink, and here’s a swatch: it cosmetics

Vitality Lip Flush is a 4-in-1 Natural Anti-Aging Lipstick Stains that will take the place of four products:  lipstick, anti-aging conditioning lip balm, ultra-hydrating lip gloss, and lip stain. The all natural formula contains plum oil, cherry oil, shea butter, aloe and jojoba. anti-aging anti-oxidants including Vitamins A, C, E, Acai, Green Tea and White Tea to protect and ward off free-radicals. It was incredibly hydrating and the color for me was really beautiful. I love that it really is just a little bit of color, and is perfect for my skin tone!

Vitality Lip Flush is free of talc, paraben, sulfate, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, and phthalate free. It’s also hypo-allergenic and non-comedogenic.

All of the above products will be available for one day only on Friday, July 27th, exclusively at QVC.  Total retail value of the TSV (Today’s Special Value) is $236.00. The TSV price on July 27th will be $59.94
