I unpacked everything, including the little sample packets, and took this photo:

Here’s some detailed information about each of the products, starting with the first one, the CC+ Illumination Color Correcting and the Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush.

 It Cosmetics It's All About You!

1. The CC+ Cream Illumination is not new, but it’s now available in the Collection in a supersize!! gave me full coverage color correcting. It contains a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+, which I was so happy about.   It did have a bit of a fragrance, but it didn’t bother me, and seemed to dissipate quickly. I applied the CC+ Cream Illumination on top of my moisturizer with my fingers, and then realized that I should use the new Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush that came with the kit! You can use either method to apply it. The texture is really creamy, and felt very moisturizing on my skin. It initially gave me a dewy finish. Within a few minutes it was a nice smooth satin finish. I love that it’s so pigmented, and those that have skin issues, like dark spots or redness, will love this! Don’t worry about the fact that it’s CC+ Illumination. That really had me a bit worried since I’m not in my twenties any more and didn’t want to look like a disco ball. I would describe it as really giving a beautiful brightness to my skin, and my skin looked great–natural and not like I had on a face full of makeup! It’s a fantastic product, and, as with It Cosmetics products, has an anti-aging serum.  In conclusion, I’m sure you’re going to love the CC+ Cream Illumination with its skin-perfecting primer,  great color corrector, and physical-only sunscreen (UVA/UVB SPF 50+.

2. The New Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush. I have never, ever, bought or received an It Cosmetics brush that I did not love. They are all soft, and designed for a specific purpose, as advertised. This custom cut brush will definitely help you to apply the CC+ Cream Illumination!

 

Check out how full and fluffy the brush head looked when I took a photo from the top.

3. Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment is a new lip treatment that is definitely as advertised. It has a bit of color to it, and will keep your lips so moisturized with a little bit of pink color. It feels so soft on your lips because it’s formulated with yummy butters and oils. No stickiness at all. Just smooth, beautiful looking lips! I can’t help myself…I have to point out that I love the packaging!

4. Tightline 3-in-1 Black Primer – Eyeliner – Mascara is one of my favorite products from It Cosmetics. I’ve written about it before. There is a little bit of a different look to it, but it’s the same great formula! I’m completely impressed by the product, and love that it never smeared, and didn’t irritate my eyes at all.  I love that just using the one product, the Tightline Full Lash Length Primer, I don’t have to wear false lashes to have gorgeous eyelashes. As the company claims, “It‘s your lashes, only better.”

 It Cosmetics It's All About You!

Here are some of the photos from my previous post. Trust that even though it’s very skinny, the Tightline wand does do the trick by coating from root to tip and gives you the Tightline eyeliner effect. By itself, I believe that the Tightline Full Lash Length Primer looks as natural as I can imagine.

Tightline Full Lash Length Primer It Cosmetics

Don’t feel like you have to add any extra mascara, because when I added mascara over the primer, (photo below), and in my opinion, the mascara shows up too clumpy. It was not the Tightline that made it clumpy. It was the added mascara that was not needed and made it look that way. But, it’s a look, and some people like their eyelashes to look that way.

Here’s a photo below, taken on a different day from the photos above, where I just applied a small amount of the  Tightline Full Lash Length Primer, and did not add any extra (different) mascara on top of it. I think it looks perfect! In addition, I want to note that the photo above was taken after wearing the Tightline Full Lash Length Primer for 7 hours.

I know why the Tightline is a best-selling customer favorite! I love it!!

Hurraw! Balm: Cruelty Free and Vegan

Hurraw! Balm: Cruelty Free and Vegan

Hurraw! Balm is a product that I have read is great, but haven’t yet tried. I’m guessing that I will love it because it’s certified cruelty free, vegan, and is chocolate flavored! Yes, Hurraw! Balm has many flavors of lip balm, and one of them happens to be chocolate. Like me, those who work at Hurraw! Balm love a dark, raw chocolate treat. While it’s not meant to be eaten, of course, it is so safe, you can lick your lips and not have to think about any chemicals that you might be ingesting.

Hurraw! Balm

Hurraw! Balm has a very clear label so you know exactly what you’re purchasing with your hard earned money. Here’s an example from the Balm in chocolate.

Hurraw! Balm

The ingredients in Hurraw! Balm are all plant based. It’s certified vegan, and cruelty free, and everyone reading this blog should recognize the Leaping Bunny logo on the label. It’s always inportant to check a company’s stance, but I appreciate that Harraw! Balm puts this important statement in writing, “…does not purchase ingredients from any company that at any point of their growing, handling, or production cycle involves animal testing. Each supplier and every purchase order is confirmed cruelty-free before it is added to our supply chain.

Hurraw! Balm ingredients are cosmetic and food-grade ingredients. Safety testing takes place on Human-animal panels via independent labs. All of the ingredients are guaranteed to be GMO free by the growers and distributors. As if that’s not enough Hurraw! Balm is Gluten Free, Soy Free, and Shea Free.

This is why you won’t worry about licking your lips after you apply Hurraw! Balm: it’s non toxic. There is no petroleum, parabens, synthetic preservatives, or artifical colors.

Hurraw! Balm

 

All of the ingredients are listed. All of the flavors in the Balm are from 100% natural sources, manufactured in the USA and are USDA food grade. Most are from pure essential oils. If you purchase Chocolate, Rootbeer, Chai Spice, Green Tea, or Black Cherry, they are made for Hurraw! Balm from 100% natural, organically derived flavor compounds through steam-distillation and various processes of extraction.

Just in case you’re going to ask, there is absolutely no alcohol in any Balm, or in any of the ingredients!

Here’s where you can find Hurraw! Balm, or purchase it online where you can check out the variety, and the prices–all priced under $5.00.

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
