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

My favourite CC ever, in that it performs like a BB coverage wise but actually colour corrects and looks so natural. Effortless to apply as it's easy blending and lasts 6 hours without a primer where other CC creams seem so sheer they sink right in and wear off within a couple hours. Don't love the price but until something comparable comes along, I'll repurchase. It's a daily staple that makes me look pulled together without all the fuss of foundation and it doesn't need any other products to support the longevity or finish. Erases flaws while still looking like skin. Magic.

Stays on very well even when it's hot outside. Very thick product and I don't think it's full coverage as it claims. The lightest shade is a little too dark for me but I can make it work. I still wish they would create lighter shade. Smells nice.

I had this in the sample size from an Ipsy bag and got the full size in a set my shopping network channel was selling. This is way better than the other IT Cosmetics mascaras I've tried. It really does stretch out your lashes like it claims and makes them pop without putting on like 50 coats. I didn't find any smudging or clumping either throughout the day and there is minimal drooping. It is a bit clumpy, but not too much. I personally don't mind a little clump if it volumizes, I'm not into super natural looking lashes lol. It is quite pricey ($29.00 CAD I think individually) and I would not buy it unless it was in a set because I don't really see the point in investing a lot of money in a product I have to replace every three months myself. But this is seriously one of the best mascaras I've ever tried.

I was skeptical about IT Cosmetics brushes and thought they were WAY overpriced and probably overrated. But I've always had problems with my blush brushes. I've bought so any over the years and they would all pick up too much powder, even if I blow or tap off most of it, and I usually end up with too much on my cheeks.

I had some extra money and finally decided to buy a few IT brushes. This was the real winner out of the group of four I bought. It is by far the best blush brush I have ever used. It is extremely soft and only picks up a little powder, so I have to build the color, but that is so much better than all the splotches of pigment I used to get.

Cleansers -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Balm

After using Clinique's balm I found I prefer makeup removers in this form versus an oil form. I got this as part of a 5 piece kit from QVC. The container is HUGE, but the actual weight of the product is less than that of Clinique's balm. 2.8 oz for $38 versus 4.2 for $29 - clearly the Clinique balm is a better value, which is the main reason why I knocked off a lippie.

As for the product itself, I really like it. It's light and airy with a very faint citrus scent. It removes everything with ease and the best part is it doesn't leave a film on my eyes after thorough rinsing. I notice less makeup on my Mia after the 2nd cleanse so this definitely removes makeup thoroughly. So far no breakouts and my skin itself is more moisturized. I like the consistency of the balm - it's more of a whipped feel so that's likely why the container itself is larger but there isn't as much product as Clinique.

While it is a bit more than Clinique's balm, I can see myself repurchasing this as I find it outperforms Clinique's version by just a bit.

First off, I don't like paying $26 w/tx for a mascara. Uggggg........ I have short, thin, straight lashes so decided to try this one which seemed to have a good review. Was wanting something that was good for the lashes and this one claims "Powerful lash-lifting polymers, volumizing collagen, strengthening biotin, proteins and peptides" so figured I'd try it. I can tell you this one does lengthen and coat my invisible nothing lashes. I swiped the brush on them a few times, (by experience, I can tell after about 4 swipes if the mascara is going to help my pitiful lashes) and YES i was getting lashes! They were nice length even touching my eyelid and full. I was very happy with it. I started to put "NO" i'd not buy it again, only b/c of price..... but I believe I'd fork out the money for this one. No prob washing off, but I never buy waterproof (can't afford to lose even 1 eyelash!) So, if you HAVE lashes that you can actually see, I am sure you would love this mascara. (p.s. i gave it 4 lippies only cuz of price)

Finally found a foundation that agrees with my skin type (sensitive/Dry)
I live in Singapore so the climate is always hot and humid all year round.
I tested this makeup for 8 hours Without powder it only gets shiny on my nose (which is common).
With powder, it lasts roughly around the 9 - 10-hour mark before I need to powder.
Doesn't emphasizes my dry patches. Really covers my hyperpigmentation.
It's a solid medium - 1 pump / high medium - 2 pumps.

I absolutely LOVE this foundation. I'm in the shade TAN which applies dark at first.
as I go about my day it actually lightens a little. not in a bad way
It just looks glowy skin like finish. absolutely love this.

Will most definitely purchase this again.

p.s I only ever tried applying this with a beauty blender.
Will update this review when i try a brush application instead!

I initially purchased this in the shade "fair" on recommendation by 2 Sephora SAs but I found it leaving me looking very pasty and blotchy. Still, I continued using it for a month to make sure its formula and my skin got along great before trying the next darker shade "light", which turned out to be a perfect match. It's been 2 months since.

Love this as my daily light-medium coverage liquid makeup. How I've been wearing it: Wash > lightly moisturise > sunscreen > this CC > concealer on spots > light dusting of loose powder on the oiliest parts. No touchups other than light blotting with tissue midday and I have it on averagely 13 hrs per day almost everyday.

A bit about my over-40 skin: Sensitive, ultra oily, dehydrated, enlarged pores and prone to hormonal breakouts. I also suffer from hyperpigmentation. Living in the tropics also means dealing with heat & humidity year round plus dry air-conditioned air indoors and my sensitive skin is constantly acting up trying to adjust.

And the following is why I love this CC:
- has not caused any allergic reactions nor breakouts (in fact, I dare say my skin complexion seems to have improved slightly)
- looks like skin, never gets cakey even through 13 hours of wear, sweat and oil build up (though skin appearance does becomes uneven due to blotting taking off some of the makeup)
- does not oxidise/darken
- can be applied directly on a freshly washed face (saves time when in a rush)
- applies easily with fingers (I'm lazy with sponges and brushes plus fingers reduce product wastage)
- does not settle into my fine lines (other than my under eye crease lines - but this happens with every other makeup I've used regardless of over primers or not)
- spf 50
- scent is fresh and citrusy (scent dissipates quickly upon application)
- comes in handy travel size

Still, as much as I love it, it isn't perfect. Negatives (for me):
- light to medium coverage blurs but does not hide my spots (so concealer or a foundation over is still a must for when I want to fake a flawless complexion)
- feels and looks oily over my moisturiser and even more so when I add sunscreen over my moisturiser (so some blotting before dusting of loose powder is needed) and that's a fresh application. By midday, my face is so oil-slicked that if I forget to blot, my melting makeup would show lines and smudges where my hair strands brush my face or where my sunglasses sit my face. However, this probably won't be the case for most other people unless you're also super oily by nature
- settles somewhat into my enlarged oily pores no matter how I try different application methods or over special primers (so having the right skin-matching shade makes a huge difference in keeping the dotty-pore look less obvious)
- doesn't feel hydrating without moisturising first (sometimes, my skin will flake the moment the CC cream goes on)
- tad pricey (but worth it based on having used many well known brands ranging from drugstore to high end, which also had their fair share of negatives each)
- very limited range of shades (I'm lucky one works for me)

Do I recommend this? If you find a matching shade and if you don't need full coverage, definitely give it a go. They make minis though these do not come with pumps. They also make a shimmer version of this but as an oily, I'd avoid them. Good luck!

I mix in a little of their illuminating CC cream and some of the bronzing as well. A little goes a long way. It lasts all day long and makes me look younger. I love it.

Powder -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder

Absolutely love this powder, I am 57 years old, I have larger pores, and fine lines and wrinkles. After applying my foundation, no matter what the brand, I finish it with this powder and it leaves my skin looking smooth and flawless all day. Unlike other powders I've used that are worn off after a few hours.
It genuinely hides my pores and wrinkles. I wish I could find something similar for a little less money. My limited budget is my only reluctance to buy regularly.

This is very tacky and sticky sunblock, and VERY shiny. I do not like sunblock that makes me feel like I am suffocating. It does not play well with many foundations either. The best wear is when I used it alone under mineral makeup. Even then, it tended to make the mineral foundation look cakey. Overall, there are better sunblocks out there for less money.

I recieved this in a set that my fiance bought me for Christmas and I absolutely love this brush. So soft it just glides over the skin beautifully. I use this as a large bronzer brush.

It's now June and the brush has been washed multiple times and is still holding up great!

Bronzers -It Cosmetics -Confidence in Your Glow- Instant Nude Glow

I can't even put into words how much I adore this product! My only problem was picking a category for it to do my review under... lol! Is it a blush? Is it a bronzer? Is it a contour? A highlighter? It's all these things- and more! I don't know what is different about the formulation of this blush/bronzer/highlight palette, but it really blends into and sits on my skin beautifully! It lasts all day on me without fading and disappearing, too. This palette has 3 colors: a light powder (highlighter), medium (blush), and darker (bronzer/contour) powder. I use them in all sorts of ways. Sometimes, I just use the bronzer. Other times, I just use the middle powder (blush). Other days, I use all three together with the highlighter on the upper part of my cheekbones, the bronzer on the cheekbones, the blush on the apples of the cheeks. There are so many ways to use this palette; and no matter how I use it, it always gives me amazing results. Actually, this product is turning me into a little bit of a narcissist. Ha ha! I find that I can't stop admiring my makeup now when I pass by a mirror, because this Nude Glow really makes my skin look THAT good! I also have to throw in to this that I am over 50 yrs. old, and I thought all hope was lost as far as me every looking good with a product that is supposed to make you "glow." This truly does make my skin glow without glitter or sparkles or excessive "whiteness." I am MAC NW20 in Studiofix Fluid for reference.

I have the pressed version of this powder. I was looking for something a little less expensive to replace my Dior translucent makeup perfecting powder, and I'd heard this is the HG for so many people.

While the packaging is nice, feels very durable, and is easy to spot in a purse, that's about the only thing that impressed me. You have to be SO careful about how you apply this. Too much and you're immediately white and cakey and dried out. Too little and it is pointless. Also, although this did not make me itch as much as the NYX HD setting powder, it still was a bit itchy on my face. I'll use it up just because I don't have time to go to Sephora or anywhere like that and see if they have the Dior powder, but there's no comparison.
