Powder -It Cosmetics -Celebration Foundation

I only wear powder foundation (Lancome dual finish or MAC studio fix) and have been for 20 years. Neither were working for me anymore. Both were not matching my color well enough, Lancome wasn’t giving me enough coverage and MAC was oxidizing and just looking awful as the day wore on. It was time to admit I am older now and needed to find a better makeup to suit my changing skin. This foundation has been it!!!! The sales lady helped me try out several at ULTA and this one matched my color the best. After buying it and applying it myself, it looks natural, doesn’t oxidize as the day goes on and gives great coverage. I didn’t need my concealer with this. It also did not highlight the dry flakey skin on my chin. So far I am extremely pleased but I will update if anything changes.

Lip Liners -It Cosmetics -It Cosmetics-YLBB Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lip Stain

on 12/2/2017 11:06:00 PM

Got this in Romantic Rose, as I was looking for a pencil to use as a lipstick color. It's a medium dusty rose--.good for most looks. It wears well, shaped and feels more more like a lipstick crayon since it has a thicker yet chiseled tip, though you can use the self-sharpener to make it thinner. Unlike hard pencils, it's creamy but stays on well, if not through eating or drinking. I have to use it over lip balm since I have dry lips, so probably lasts less on me than others.

Love this! First saw on ‘Hot and Flashy’ with Angie. I wear in the shade Light and I am shade NC20 in MAC. I prefer to apply with a light hand using a big fluffy brush (Real Techniques big powder brush). When I tried to apply with a powder foundation brush it looked too mask like. It really is very quick and easy to apply and gives a clean natural non cakey look. I would say it’s light to medium coverage depending how much you put on. Can be reapplied throughout the day without looking powdery. It doesn’t cling to dry spots or settle in pores of fine lines. It’s my new favourite foundation!

Moisturizers -It Cosmetics -Confidence in a Cream

Ho-hum moisturizer with too much citrus fragrance. The container a jar so it isn't ideal for protecting the ingredients or preventing germs from breeding. It's not awful but I wouldn't buy it in the future.

Primer/ Corrector -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Pores Primer

on 12/1/2017 1:57:00 PM

I decided to try this after my beloved Shiseido Refining Primer was discontinued/removed from the Sephora website. I do like this primer, it is billed as an oil-free skin perfecting serum primer. It does help to control oil on the skin and makes your foundation go on flawlessly and makes it last all day.

However, this is called "translucent", but it isn't. If you use too much, it will definitely leave a whitish cast on the skin. It is a creamy consistency and comes in an airless pump tube, consistent with most of IT's liquid products. One pump is usually sufficient to cover your entire face. But, the fact that is a thicker cream sometimes makes it harder for your to pump it out of the tube and then you may pump too much. Pores will be filled in by this primer, but some texture will still be visible. You do get a generous amount of product for the price ($38 USD), and usually IT products last a long time. Will purchase again.

Mascara -It Cosmetics -Superhero Mascara

I am confused by the mixed reviews on this mascara. I received my first tube of this as a gift from my mom. I have had such 'bad' luck with mascaras (in 25 years, the only one I really liked/HG status was Chanel Le Volum) that I didn't have high expectations.

This mascara is the HG of all time. It blows everything else that I have tried out of the water.

Some reviewers state that it clumps or changes after a few uses. I have not had this problem, partly due to the fact that I store this standing upright. I don't wear this all of the time (lazy days, very casual days) because it packs a punch. On days where I need a little "less" (never thought I would say that about my stubby lashes) I use Chanel Le Volume or L'Oreal Voluminous. Most days, though, I wear this.

I just repurchased. Would highly highly recommend.

Pressed Powders -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Pores Pressed Silk Airbrush Poreless Finishing Powder

I love this powder, it works really well on my aging/mature skin. It does blur the look of pores, it sets my foundation well, and it gives a matte, but not dry finish to the skin. It is expensive, but I have already repurchased. This powder and their CC cream are the only products out of their line that I can wear without breaking out, luckily I haven't had any issues at all with this powder causing me any acne or skin irritation.

I have been looking forever for an acne concealer that has good ingredients. Most of them (like Clinique's) are just like regular concealers with no treatment ingredients. This has salicylic acid, tea tree oil and drying agents like sulfur. It has great packaging--a little bottle with a wand that gives precise application so you don't lose too much product. it also comes in several colors and is not too thick (but can be layered) so it doesn't look obvious. Only drawback it's pricey--but wait for sales.

Very nice. One pump is enough for my face and a little down the middle of my neck. It starts off neutral, almost grey and then changes to skin tone.

Sadly this broke me out. A bit drying but the first 4 hrs of wear are nice. I used it for about 10 days to make sure breakouts were due to this. Sunscreen is usually a culprit for me

Concealers -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Under Eye

This is a very divisive product apparently, but I personally love it! I have been using it for the last couple of months after being given samples from Sephora, and will definitely buy one for myself after I finish up my Maybelline Fit Me. This product is very thick, but provides extremely full coverage without being heavy or cakey under the eye area. It also doesn’t sink into fine lines under the eyes, which is fantastic! A little goes a long way with this product. I simply use a drop, warm it up between my fingers, dot under my eyes and on my eyelids and then blend out with a brush. I find it blends easily and creates a full coverage but still natural finish. It stays all day under the eyes. I also tried it out as foundation, as it says you can do on the pack, but I much prefer it as concealer. As foundation, it lasted around 6 hours on the skin before starting to separate around the nose area. Overall this is a great product, I would definitely repurchase, it covers my under eye circles amazingly! A+

It's... ok. It's not as great as their CC, which is one of my faves. Also, the price is way steep. You can't buy in stores. The cream makes you look cake-y. Like with the CC cream, it can blend with other foundations to adjust colors. Makes the products better IMO, lol.

This is my go-to product when I have like ZERO time to go through my lengthy makeup regimen. It makes my skin look fresh and natural. Minus one lipstick only because they lack in range of colors and I'm in between light and medium. I use medium, but I find that by mixing it with any of my lighter foundations, it blends well and even improves some foundations that I use. Definitely will be using this for years to come.

I would give this 5 stars if the consistency wasn’t so thick. You have to warm it up between your fingers to get it to spread out more easily without having to tug at the fragile skin around your eyes. I find it definitely works best when applied with your fingers, which can be difficult if you have long nails, but it definitely covers really well, stays in place, and doesn’t accentuate any fine lines around the eyes. I use this every day before applying the rest of my makeup.

Most It! Cosmetics products I’ve tried, I’ve loved. This just does not sit on my skin well. It looks chalky at first, but after a few minutes it does settle in ...and then it does this weird thing where it clings to my foundation and sort of bunches it together. I end up having little spots on and around my nose, and on my chin. When you try to fix it, it’s almost impossible without taking your foundation off in that area and starting over. From a distance, it does have an airbrushed look, but I find that it doesn’t last very long... maybe 30 minutes, and then I think I look even oilier after. I’ve tried using just a tiny amount, using more, using a brush instead of the applicator sponge, using over different foundations ; nothing seems to make it work with my skin. It settles into my laugh lines and makes them look way more noticeable. I hardly have lines there but this powder actually accentuates them. :( A lot of people seem to love this powder, including my best friend, but it just isn’t for me.
