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: 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.

Real Techniques Core Collection Makeup Brushes

The Real Techniques Core Collection Makeup Brushes!

Real Techniques Core Collection Makeup Brushes were designed by Sam Chapman, a Mom, makeup artist, blogger, and sister of Nic (Pixiwoo). This is the second Collection that I have purchased. The previous Collection reviewed: your eyes/enhanced, Starter Set. I also purchased one brush that was not part of a kit, and I’ll review that in another post.

The mission of Real Techniques: “high-tech brushes and industry-quality makeup tutorials make you the expert.”

Sam promises that by using the brushes in the Core Collection, your foundation will be “flawless.” Read on to find out my thoughts.

Real Techniques Makeup Brushes

When you take the Real Techniques Core Collection out of the box, you will see the plastic (form) that keeps each brush safe during shipment and before use. (You can click on the photo for a closer look).

Real Techniques Brushes

The Core Collection has four brushes, all of which are incredibly soft Taklon bristles. These bristles are synthetic, making them cruelty free. They also all have aluminum handles, which makes them incredibly lightweight. For those starting a makeup brush collection, I think it’s a great idea to have the brush names on each one. I have had the brushes for over two months now, and I have not had any shedding after washing; plus, they go right back to to their nice fluffy shape.

Real Techniques Case

The Core Collection’s panoramic case, a carrier/stand, makes it  easy to set up your brushes, and to take them with you when you travel. There is a velcro closure on the case, which is great to keep all the brushes safely securely.

A toggle allows for this to be used/positioned as a panoramic brush case.

Closer look at each of the Real Techniques Brushes 

detailer brush: precision cut to effortlessly conceal problem areas; or, use with lipstick for long-lasting shape and definition

buffing brush: ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation

 

The Real Techniques Contour Brush:

Real Techniques Makeup Brush

The contour brush is used to, obviously, contour;  can be used to create a sheer finish. You can the contour brush use this to apply highlighter and bronzer.

 

The Real Techniques Foundation Brush is, as you can see below, pointed.

Real Techniques Makeup Brush

Due to the pointed tip, it can easily be used exactly where you want to apply your foundation, or your tinted moisturizer.  You can get the brush into those areas that you don’t want to overload with foundation, such as around the nose, under the eyes, etc.

The Detailer Brush is a great size:  Real Techniques Makeup Brush

Because you should only use concealer where you need it, you want a small brush, with the right shape, to help you accomplish this task.  Sam has reminded us in her videos that when you use this, you need to push the brush—in other words, do not drag the brush. That’s how you get more coverage. Do you need to add concealer under your eyes, or around your nose where you have some redness? Bonus of this is that the Detailer Brush can also be used as a lipstick brush!

The last of the four brushes is the Buffing Brush:

Real Techniques Makeup Brush

This brush can be used for mineral foundation, if you have a creme to powder foundation, to apply bronzer, highlighter, and to apply blusher. Finally, this brush has the perfect shape to set your concealer and foundation (with loose powder or pressed powder so you do not have any shine on your face.)

I believe that this The Real Techniques Core Collection does succeed in having your foundation flawless, and I am glad that I purchased it.

Real Techniques Makeup Brushes by Sam Chapman

Samantha Chapman describes herself as a “makeup artist, vlogger, blogger, beauty bootcamp instructor, mom, and more!” I feel slightly silly writing about her since I bet everyone knows who Samantha (Sam), and her sister, Nicola (Nic) are! However, for those completely out of touch…Pixiwoo: Sam and Nic are famous makeup artists and sisters; Sam has been a professional artist for fifteen years. Samantha believes that great artistry is only as good as your techniques and tools, and that’s why she created Real Techniques, a makeup brush collection.  Real Techniques’ mission: “high-tech brushes and industry-quality makeup tutorials make you the expert.”

Here are some ways to Connect:

I purchased two Real Techniques brush sets, and one brush that was not part of a kit. The first of the posts to share with you is the “your eyes/enhanced, Starter Set.”

(Click on any of the photos to enlarge.)

Notice the toggle at the top of the case

That toggle allows for this to be used/positioned  as a panoramic brush case. 

The Real Techniques 2-in-1 case and stand from another angle:

The eye definition starter kit has five brushes. They all have aluminum handles, which makes them incredibly lightweight. All of the brushes have Taklon bristles, which are synthetic. That means they are 100% cruelty-free. They are all very plush and soft, and after several weeks of testing them, none of the brushes have  shed!! I also like that they all have the brush names on them for those just starting.

Below is the base shadow brush. This was the perfect size for my eyelid to apply an eye shadow base.

Here is the crease brush, which is perfectly shaped for contouring.

The accent brush was designed by Samantha for the following: precision detailing, spotlighting, highlighting, and smudging. Yes, it really is a multi-purpose brush and is able to it all!

As you can see from the photo, the eyeliner brush is tapered cut. It was designed that way to be able to apply your eyeliner very fine, or very densely.

The fifth brush in the set is the brow brush. It’s advertised as being able to easily define eyebrows, and I would agree. The bristles are just perfect to easily shape your brows.

I can’t think of any cons. They are priced competitively, and when they’re on sale, in my opinion, they’re a real bargain! Excellent quality and cruelty free. I had high expectations from brushes that were designed by Sam, and she did not disappoint. I love the brushes, and recommend!!
