Mascara -It Cosmetics -Superhero Mascara

I received a full size of this mascara in my Boxy Charm box this month, and I like it. It made my lashes look long, full, and thick. It has a matte finish, which is the only thing I'm not sure about as it seems a bit unnatural looking. I wore it for a long 12hr nursing shift full of lots of physical work, and it looked great until I took it off with no flaking or smudging. I'm not sure what this costs, but I would definitely consider purchasing.

Concealers -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Under Eye

This isn't my favorite concealer to use under my eyes but it is very dependable. It's EXTREMELY pigmented (you need a pin size dot for each eye) and takes some patience to blend out (I prefer to use my finger, it "melts" due to body temperature). It has a dewy finish and MUST be set. It doesn't budge all day and it creases only minimally after a long 9+ hour day. I've compared it to the ABH concealer and it creases much less than that one does under my eyes.

I only took off a star because the color is a bit odd. I got "medium" and it leans cool, which doesn't help me much with my dark eye circles. I use a corrector underneath.

One giant plus of this concealer is how travel friendly it is because of the squeeze tube! Plus you get a TON of product, so I'm sure a tube is going to last me years.

Powder -It Cosmetics -Celebration Foundation

on 10/8/2018 10:18:00 PM

I've been very happy with It Cosmetics liquid foundation, but was fighting oiliness w/o success; tried the Bye Bye Pores loose powder: too dusty (like the eyeshadow), tried the compact version of the same product, and found it would collect weirdly on patches of foundation (compact fell apart quickly, too). Last ditch effort (and completely ready to return if unsatisfied), tried the Celebration & it works beautifully on top of CC Cream. Lasted a long time & no clumping or collecting in wrinkles. I wish the packaging of IT Cosmetics products was a little classier--this compact is like a chrome nightmare, but the product is so good, I will make my peace with the style.

Not crazy about every single product in the IT Cosmetic line, but this one is a winner. Very easy to make a smooth line across my crepe-y eyelid, esp. easy to make both eyes match; lasted all day through sweat, tears, etc. Nice deep black, intensely pigmented, so no frustration with drawing the perfect line, but too light. Very small amount of product for the price, but was 40% off at Ulta this week ;)


BB Cream -It Cosmetics -Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

I wanted to love this so badly, but I just don't. I have combination/oily skin and it just feels like a greasy mess. I adore the finish and how it looks right after I first apply it - it's very creamy, blends effortlessly, and makes my skin look flawless without looking too heavy. But just a couple hours later, it looks and feels greasy and just plain uncomfortable. I only used this in the winter when my skin is more combination than oily, and I could only just bear wearing it through a whole day. Sadly a miss for me.

One of the worst CC creams I have ever used. I purchased this product 2 months ago because I heard very good reviews about it. My skin was okay, few pimples but nothing bad BUT after using this it got worse! Plus- my skin looks like a cake and I totally hate it. Greasy and heavy product . I don’t recommend it

BB Cream -It Cosmetics -Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

This was an impulse purchase for me on Ulta's "Walk of Shame" (the leadup to the register). The full-size tube is $38USD, not bad for a foundation, really, but I'm a cheapskate. A mini-tube, 12 ml/0.4 fl oz, is $18 and is a good way to try the product. I'm an NW20, and Light worked well for me.

The tube says Full Coverage Cream, and boy are they not kidding. You need only a small amount to get a thick-feeling, satiny coverage. When I first put it on, it looks almost masklike, but settles as the day goes on. The product has a lemony fragrance, which is unusual in a foundation and which I found rather pleasant, but others might not like. I wore it all summer without powder and found it wore well, but is not waterproof. The SPF comes from TiO2 and ZnO2. (I figure sunscreen is one of those things that, you don't know if it works, you only know if/wen it doesn't work.)

I take 1/2 star off for the price of a full-size tube. You should be able to get a good CC cream at a lower price point. And 1/2 off for the thick feeling at first. Is this what all CC creams are like?

Wanted to like this. It feels good to put on, has a good amount of spf, and smells kinda nice. Unfortunately, once it goes on my face it just washed me out completely. I look like a zombie in this stuff. Also, it feels on the greasy side and broke me out. Acne prone folks, try a sample before parting with your $50.

I was motivated to try this by the lack of tocopherols, a very common cosmetic and skin care ingredient that causes an allergic reaction for me. My doubt was so strong that I purchased a used tube on the reddit MUE forum rather than shell out full price for a new one. I have since repurchased in the Light shade, and I'm surprised how often I reach for it. No apparent issues with the annoying citrus oils ( WHY?!). I don't apply foundation of any kind to my entire face, but rather pat it into my areas of redness and discoloration, on top of a moisturizer.

Cleansers -It Cosmetics -Confidence in a Cleanser

I don't consider this cleanser amazing, but it's definitely nice if you have sensitive skin. This was what I used when I got allergic contact dermatitis all over my face from a product. My skin was red, really sore, and I could barely touch my eye-area. My regular cleanser made my skin sting pretty badly, so I grabbed for this (actually because of the review below). This felt much better, and didn't strip my skin of moisture. Even though it has some kind of lemon-cake smell, it was still a soothing cleanser. I don't feel it is great at removing makeup residue after my makeup remover (compared to tthe strong stuff I currently use), so it's better for me in the morning, when I have no makeup on. In any case: would recommend for people with sensitive and dry/dehydrated skin.

All of the claims of what this is supposed to do are kind ridiculous, so I didn't manage to get through them in one go because I was rolling my eyes too much. It doesn't affect what I think about the product though.

I really tried to make it work. Just way too thick and pasty for me. I don't like the way it tugs at the skin.


Mascara -It Cosmetics -Superhero Mascara

One of my favourite mascaras to date! I got a deluxe sample of this (basically the travel size) when I spent a bomb at Sephora, and I'm loving this!

The things I always look for in a mascara are lengthening and defining - and this exceeds expectations with it! The definition is insane, there's great separation and very little clumping, my lashes just look very fluttery and long. I don't wriggle the wand back and forth since I find this clumps up my lashes but I 'blink' onto the wand and brush it upwards. This also isn't one of those lengthening mascaras that make your lashes look wispy because of how it defines your lashes. The look is like you've got thin and long lashes but because there's so many of these individual lashes, it still looks dense. It also doesn't feel heavy or wet, it's easy to apply and doesn't take much time to get great results. That being said, it's more on the natural look side of the spectrum - if you're looking for drama or volume, this is definitely not the mascara for you.

I also love that it's not waterproof but lasts me all day with no smudging or flaking. I have pretty oily eyelids so that's impressive! It also makes eye makeup removal such a breeze.

However, water can easily remove this mascara. I sometimes have allergies so my eyes get itchy and teary, and I have to be careful with how I dab away at the tears in order to not smudge my mascara at the same time because it doesn't take much water.

Another negative I will say is that the travel size is not worth your money. I've used it for a month and a half and it's already finishing. I always buy high end mascaras in a travel size because there's no point buying the full size when I religiously throw them out after 4-5 months (as you should). Never had an issue before and they always have enough product to get me through that time. I can already tell this one will definitely not last me that long. This mascara is tiny and if I had bought this, I would feel a little ripped off.

We'll see how I feel about repurchasing this when I'm done with mascara, but in the mean time, I will enjoy using this very much!

This mascara was ok, it didn't clump and separated my lashes nicely but it didn't give any volume or thickness...


Moisturizers -It Cosmetics -Confidence in a Cream

I have combo/oily skin, and this cream is my perfect winter moisturizer. It absorbs easily, goes well under makeup, doesn't feel heavy, and does not irritate skin. It improved the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but did nothing for pores. The lack of pump is also annoying, but not a deal breaker for me.

Eyes -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye under eye eye cream

One of the best eye creams on the market! The tag line is "smooths, brightens, and depuffs", and it did all that for me. I noticed a positive difference in crow's feet and under eye wrinkles, dark circles, and upper lid puffiness. The cream absorbs quickly and does not cause any greasiness as the time goes by. It works well under makeup. The packaging with no pump is the only drawback, but the cream is too thick for the pump.
