Using this brush feels like patting a newborn bunny onto your cheeks. Admittedly, I would've probably never purchased this brush on it's own but because it came in a QVC kit, I was stoked to try it out. It certainly lives up to all the hype I've heard surrounding it. It's very fluffy and soft. It picks up product so well, you barely have to tap your brush into the pan. And blending, you don't even need to TRY to blend, this brush does it for you. Go buy it.

Foundations -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Redness Anti-Aging Cream

I am over 59. Blonde straight hair, fair to light skin. Getting a lot of redness lately.
I like most "IT" cosmetic products. Lately started to get a lot of redness on my checks, mostly. Decided to try this. "Bye Bye Redness." It is expensive but I try to us very little. It works well. Covers red cheeks as well as any other red parts on my face. Never got this before and don't know if it's allergy or other causing it. The cream covers all very well and my skin doesn't react. I have very sensitive skin, I find it quite drying though. But Ok when I wear it. Looks natural but not shiny, rather dull. It applies well and covers well. It's rather thick and very little goes a long way. Usually use my fingers and brush at the end of application. Ilike it but wish I hadn't gotten this redness problem so suddenly. I still don't know if it's a new "state' I'm in or an allergy to makeup in general. I have used Revlon New Complexion for years and loved it. Suddenly it seemed to give me this redness problem. Which caused me to try the IT product I am writing about. Revlon spread so much easier and felt so much lighter to wear. Less drying. Also much less expensive. Or Cover Girl in compact also. So it's either a change in formula or an allergic reaction suddenly. Age also could have caused a change in skin and this new problem. I still hope it will work itself out and this "redness thing" will subside and go away. I guess time will tell. I have had allergies in the past that after a time went away. I hope this will too. But I hear of many ladies who have suddenly developed this redness problem. It's not itchy.
I now keep my cream simply to help it subside. I use Pond's Cold Cream which has never caused me a problem, and put the fancier stuff away. Asam Gold and Skinn, etc. Although they have never caused me a problem before. Pond's is the cream once suggested by a dermatologist seems to be the best when things really flare up.
So, time will tell if this redness thing gets better or worse. Meanwhile I'll continue with the Pond's Cold Cream in the evening and day when not using IT. Hopes that helps someone else. Good Luck. Maybe it's just the pollution we are confronted with each day now?? :)

Powder -It Cosmetics -CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder

Not a bad powder to set a BB cream or liquid foundation. The price is SO STEEP for this product -- honestly, I have used other powders such as Rimmel (which is about $3-5) that does a similar job, but this powder does last a bit longer without having to touch up. If this was about $20, I might buy it again. Packaging is annoying as the product pan flips up to show a puff. I love the mirror though!

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

Still on the fence with this... I started using this a few weeks ago after using Lioele BB Cream for YEARS. Very similar product, but this has lower coverage than Lioele. I do like the shade range on this product, but I'm not sure if my skin likes it. I'm not prone to break outs AT ALL, but this is breaking out my face a bit. I'm going to give it some more time to try it out, but I'm going back to Asian BB creams after this.

Such an amazing concealer, makes a huge difference


Eyes -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye under eye eye cream

on 7/8/2017 2:40:00 PM

This is a lightweight 'whipped' textured eye cream. No real scent detected and is housed in a jar format. The packaging is very pretty light blue acrylic plastic jar and a plastic mirror like lid- sits pretty on a table. (Although I don't leave my creams out as most creams are light sensitive). Only a little cream is needed for both eye contours so I would imagine that this jar will last me for many months as I've had it for a cpl months and barely made a dent in it. I apply the cream w/ my clean fingertip to my eye contour and crows feet... absorbs fairly quickly, seems to hydrate and reduce any puffiness. I don't note any brightening effect nor do I see a real reduction of fine lines. My experience is it's a good cream on it's own without concealer or foundation. So for the 'au naturelle' gal this will do you good. It's my experience once you apply coverage make up on top it shows up fine lines quite significantly... will con't to use this product but will not be repurchasing.


Concealers -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector

on 7/8/2017 2:40:00 PM

I bought this to address my dark under eye circles. The corrector/concealer is contained in a small jar format. I assume it will last a loooong time as there is a lot of product compared to what you need. It is a thick and almost paste-like in consistency. I usually buy creamy concealer formulas, usually dispensed on a doe-foot applicator. I bought #2, the medium shade. The match is very close to my skin tone when applied, although at a glance, looked dark peachin the jar. On a personal note I've never been a fan of this consistency as it can tug at the fragile eye tissue. But I thought I'd try this given the reviews compared to other paste-like products. I apply w/ my clean fingertip and gently press and dad/blend the area til I get the optimal coverage. It does a very good job at covering the darkness but does not brighten the area, which I'm ok with. What I don't like is how it emphasizes my fine lines... as a base I moisturize with It Cosmetics Bye Bye under eye cream and have tried other favourite eye creams... still seems to sink into the fine lines, I've also used finishing sprays which give some temporary blurring... I'm thinking it's too thick in consistency for my under eye tissue. As a side note I did notice a little less emphasis of fine lines when I moisturize with Elf hydrating under eye primer. I will con't to use this concealer but will not repurchase unless I find a sure way to minimize fine lines.

This is a very thick, strongly pigmented concealer. I can't stress enough just how little you need for under your eyes. I use only the size of a pin head, rub between my fingers to warm it up and then gently dot under my eyes and blend it out with the dual ended concealer/foundation brush and when you do this, the coverage is perfect. If you apply it too heavily there will be creasing and settling into fine lines. Set with It Cosmetics bye bye setting powder (loose or pressed, doesn't matter) and it will last all day long. The illumination is not sparkly or shiny, it's brightening. Do not expect this to correct dark circles as well as a color correcting concealer, it is not designed to do this. Great packaging - comes in a squeeze tube with a fine tip end. Some of the jar packaged products they offer would be best served in either this delivery method or the squeeze tube with pump dispenser (like the CC cream). I wouldn't repurchase this but only because I prefer to have a concealer that is more multi-purpose for me and I've found that in other brands I've tried.

I love this product. The spf 50 sunscreen is a mineral based sunscreen, not a chemical sunscreen. I react badly to all the chemical sunscreens and I can actually use this product. Provides great, smooth coverage.

I never buy anything on QVC but after watching this product demonstration I was excited to order. Well I feel like every Marketing Companies Dream Customer. My skin isn't bad at all, yet this product offered NO coverage nor benefit. I honestly thought I had left the plastic film on the product when I looked at my skin in my magnified lighted makeup mirror! Where is it?? The brush was nice and soft but not worth the money I paid for them! What?? No thank you. Save your hard earned money ladies. 😡

The first sunscreen/foundation I ever had that feels like I'm wearing nothing. My coloring is N20 and it's a perfect match for my skin. I love this product!

I just purchased my 4th tube of this CC cream and I'm so happy with it. My first purchase was the original formula in Light and that was too dark. My second purchase was the original formula in Light AND the Illuminating formula in Fair to mix together. That was pretty good but the sparkly stuff looked really odd as the day wore on. Yesterday I purchased the original formula in Fair and now it's perfect!!! I'm a makeup artist and work for for Estée Lauder and Clinique. I love their products so much but I still like to "cocktail" my favorites to create new "skin finishes." My challenges when choosing products at other retailers is that they try to sell you colors that are too dark, or too light in some cases. When I shop at stores like Ulta and Sephora the BA's tend to push the wrong colors. From now on I'm going to go in bare faced and do my experimenting on my own. I recommend that you go outside with a mirror and examine your makeup in natural light. That's the best advice I can give!

This broke me out.

In the meantime, it was so beautiful and lasted a long time. The coverage was great. I bargained with myself for awhile, hoping something else caused the breakout, but it was this.

It could be your HG! Just not mine. Patch test and keep your receipt.

Brows -It Cosmetics -Brow Power

on 7/2/2017 5:00:00 PM

I got this at the recommendation of an Ulta salesperson with lovely eyebrows, who said she used the It pencil herself. Boom, in basket. I've been using it for my everyday work makeup look, and I do like it...my hair is medium brown (with no red) and the "Universal Taupe" shade (i.e. the only shade it comes in) works fine for my brows, which are lighter than my hair. It doesn't have weird undertones, and the combination brush/pencil is great for a one-stop product. I apply all brow products with a light hand because my brows are pretty full and I'm only looking for a little more definition, nothing Instagram-worthy. :-) I set it with cheap brow gel, and it's still there at the end of the day. The product seems to be lasting a long time with daily use, and although I said yes to repurchasing, I'm going through a brow pencil/brow pen phase right now because they're so simple, and I want to try the Stila brow pen next. This product retails for $24 which is pricey, but I expect it to last a long time, especially with my sparse use.
