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

So far I am loving this. I'm 48 with combo/dry skin and this gives just enough coverage for my rosacea redness (I still need concealer for dark circles and a few blemishes). It has a nice finish, glowy but not dewy or sparkly. I thought it would be too olive-toned for my skin (in the lightest shade) but it's perfect and looks natural under all kinds of light. I love the broad spectrum SPF which is why I bought it since I hated to have to apply sunscreen then foundation, and worry that my foundation might be rubbing off the sunscreen in places. Yes, it gets oily in my t-zone but I just use powder and it's fine. Holds up for the full day. Does not highlight pores or fine lines. I'm a little worried, after reading some of the reviews, and I hope it doesn't make me break out. Will update if it does.

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

on 9/17/2017 2:16:00 PM

foto

I always double cleanse. I use a cleansing balm (or oil) first and then a non-foaming cleanser. This product is very, very similar to Cliniques "Take off the Day" cleansing balm. They will both leave a film in your eyes when washing off eye makeup ("It" brand seems worse.) They both seem to feel the exact same way when rubbing on and washing off. The big difference is the "It" brand starts out smelling delicious with a nice, faint citrus smell but quickly turns rancid & smells like oil that's gone off. Clinique has no scent but it will also turn rancid smelling (so I keep my backup in the refrigerator. So many gift with purchase incentives!) The "It" brand has clunky, way too over-sized packaging for the amount of product inside & is over-priced for the amount you get (versus Clinique.) Something to note...I've come to the conclusion through process of elimination, that the "It" cleansing balm causes me to have minor breakouts (so I am not using it anymore.) And I do not struggle with acne at my age. Lastly, I am no longer buying either of these since finding the Korean brand, Heimish, All Clean Balm which I prefer in all ways to either of these.

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

I received a small tube in medium to try, but eventually switched to light when I purchased and I'm about a NC25 or so. I initially didn't like this as I went in thinking it would be a CC cream, but as others have said it is more of a foundation finish. If I'm having a good skin week I think it out a little with Burberry Fresh Glow luminizer. If I'm breakout city or covering discoloration marks it does great at full strength, partly because it does seem to color correct as well. This is what I travel with if I'm only taking one type of foundation and the packaging is great, why don't all expensive foundations come with a pump!

Wow! I'm impressed! Perfect for my pale skin, no glitter, moisturizer and spf 50! Amazing! I really love it! A mild, pleasant scent and I find as the day goes on my skin looks better and better :) try it!!

Edit:
I’m pretty sure the fragrance in this was giving me chronic migraine :(
I stopped using it, the headaches stopped.
It would be a good idea if they came out with a sensitive version of this, but I doubt that will happen. IT Cosmetics is very heavy handed with their chemicals and fragrance; therefore, I’ve given up on this brand.

Moisturizers -It Cosmetics -Confidence in a Cream

I thought I would try this face cream, since their CC Cream is so wonderful. Boy, that was a mistake!
First the cream smells awful like strong citrus and ginger, and the smell does not dissipate. It's not a nice smell, it's not a mild smell.

The cream itself is average, at best.

I ended up with washing it off my face and will return to Sephora.

Mascara -It Cosmetics -Superhero Mascara

This is my favorite mascara! it takes two coats to get the super dramatic look, but one coat will do just fine! I hate the price and I ordered the Essence dupe, we will see how that goes. I have purchased this 3x... if the Essence one isn't close, I will repurchase again. I'm going on a week long vacation trip and have this In my bag because it does wonders for my lashes!

This is more of a foundation than a CC cream. the finish is beautiful and I have it on my list to repurchase when I have ran out of my current foundation. The coverage is light to medium but does a great job at color correcting!

Love that it has a high spf. I have very long days and it doesn't last 12 hours but it wears off well and is doing some good things for my skin.

I think I've just found my HG everyday foundation - lightweight, excellent "your skin but better" coverage, decent color selection, sanitary packaging, with added skincare benefits. I hardly reach for my concealer when I use this, and a little goes a long way. Just be aware: it has a dewy finish and requires powder over top.

Can't recommend this product enough!

Mascara -It Cosmetics -Superhero Mascara

I bought this instead of my Chanel Le Volume (which I have reviewed in the past and have grown to love more over time) because a blogger I like said it was her HG mascara. Yuck. I mean, I guess if you like the fake eyelash if not for the clumps look it's awesome. But I like thickness and volume without clumps. I know there are some women who like that look, but I'm not one of them.

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

I must say I'm not a real fan of IT cosmetics and this is the only product that I all out haven't hated. It's medium coverage and more resembles a foundation then cc cream. It sits on my skin and doesn't blend into a natural look but if you have issues with products sinking into lines I would try this. I do think you get a lot of product but the formula not worth the price.

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

This did not sink into wrinkles which is why I liked it. And of course the spf 50 and healthy ingredients is another reason to love it. My problem with it was the lack of coverage but it is called your skin but better. I agree with this. It really does look like my skin but better. I like flawless skin. So what I end up doing is putting Estée Lauder double wear foundation over top of this. I do top it with the cc perfecting powder that It Cosmetics sells which is awesome. It is lightweight powder and not cakey at all. I then use a setting spray to help it all seal together and stay put. I think I will continue to use this under my foundation as I like the benafits it gives my skin. It seems a bit pricey the way I use it but for skin care i think it is worth it. Aging skin is a challenge to find the right products and this is one of the better ones out there. It is creamy and feels really nice on the skin. I also like the faint clean smell it has. This makes me want to put it on my skin. I bought it at Ulta and wear the medium color. It's the end of summer so my skin may have a more color right now. I'm NC25 (ELDW ecru 1N1) in the winter and NC30 (ELDW Dusk 3C1)in the summer for reference.

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

on 9/11/2017 5:29:00 PM

This is a candidate for HG base product for me. As someone with a lot of acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and general redness, I'm looking for good coverage. This probably has some of the best coverage of the handful of foundations I use--it rates up there with KA SSE but lacks SSE's difficult to work with texture. Win-win! It applies flawlessly with my IT 106 OMG! foundation brush, and fingers work well too. I am so glad they came out with two more shades because the original shade was too dark for my NC15-20 complexion. I went one shade lighter, Transforming Light Beige, and it's a good match. It wears great too! For reference, here are all the foundations I use--summer: IT Your Skin But Better CC (I mix fair and light for a better match); all other seasons: TIU24H in 140N, this one I'm reviewing, and KA SSE in sx05.

*EDIT 10/20/17* I think Transforming Light Beige is actually too dark for me. I'm going to have to return it. IT's extremely limited color selection is definitely a drawback :(

Powder -It Cosmetics -Celebration Foundation SPF 50+

It's been awhile since I've used the original Celebration Foundation, but when I found out that they had an SPF 50 version, I had to get it just for the sunscreen. Now that I'm in my 50s, I don't like to wear powder, but this one is nice and creamy and doesn't sit in my lines or look chalky. I wear a light coat of cream foundation (Honest Beauty or Cinema Secrets) and I dust a little of this on top for added sun protection, press it into my skin with my fingers, then I follow with a moisture mist. (I use sunscreen under my foundation as well.) The Celebration Foundation really evens out my complexion and gives a nicer, more finished, yet natural look. Almost all other powders leave me looking drier, so this one is special. The key is to get the right color. I brought my own powder brush to the Ulta store so I could try different colors the same way I'd do it at home. (My Sephora store does not have this powder.) Since moving to the beach, I have a whole different color of skin now, and the tan shade was perfect for me, which was a bit surprising since I'm still somewhat fair, but the medium was kind of yellow and did not blend in. The tan is more neutral and disappeared right into my skin.

I also tried the CC spf 50+ powder in the store -- I put it on one side of my face and Celebration on the other and walked around for about 30 minutes. They looked fairly similar, but I thought Celebration looked and felt more moist and creamy than the CC version.

Makeup Brushes -It Cosmetics -OMG! Foundation Brush #106

on 9/10/2017 4:49:00 AM

Love! It applies my IT CC creams, which are medium to full coverage, flawlessly. I have yet to try it with other foundations but I am hopeful it will yield similar results. And, at only $24, this brush is a good value as well. Just like all of IT's brushes, it feels luxuriously soft.
