Moisturizers -It Cosmetics -Confidence In A Cream

on 9/12/2018 11:10:00 PM

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

on 9/12/2018 10:40:00 PM

foto

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.

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

on 9/8/2018 11:20:00 PM

This does work to cover redness and a little goes a long way. It covers well enough that it can be worn without foundation. It can sometimes have a pasty look and feel. I think it's very pricey for the size (0.37 oz) and the packaging/jar may be the worse I've ever seen. As you use the product and get towards the bottom of the jar the product is drier, not as creamy. Add to that it is very, very hard to get your fingers in the jar to get the product out. For the price you should be able to use every last drop but you can't because you can't get it out of the jar. I've written the company to complain, just got a generic email back with very little comments on my complaint. I am in search of a another product that is not as costly and one where you can use all of the product.

BB Cream -It Cosmetics -Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte w/ SPF 40

on 9/8/2018 6:11:00 PM

I have dry skin, and use the original formula. I thought this might be better in the summer, and I do not like having to powder down the shine on the original formula. However, this is not really the same thing. It is matte, but I thought it applied unevenly with fingers and I had to resort to a sponge to smooth it out evenly. The color was not a good match either, and that is my fault. Be aware that the oil free matte colors are not the same as the original formula, especially if you order online. I think I will probably not use this, and will give it to a more oily skinned friend. Love the packaging, wish more brands would do this.

I use a lot of very high end products and I can honestly say IT cosmetics are comparable as to Cleau de Peau , Chanel , La Prairie etc. I am currently using the CC illuminating Cream and their Bye Bye Foundation , I have used this CC Cream and is very good with excellent coverage , I like the Illuminating CC better because it gives you a dewy look but this one is very good also just a question of preference . The SPF is a great plus. You can't go wrong with IT CC Creams or Foundations.

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

on 9/7/2018 4:00:00 PM

foto

For reference, I have dry NW20ish skin with large pores and sebaceous filaments around my nose with hormonal acne around my chin.

This is a solid powder that effectively sets and mattifies the face while having a minimal blurring effect. I have pretty large pores around my nose, and I haven't ever used a product that totally "blurred" them. This sort of softens them, but nothing that dramatic. If you have smaller pores this would probably work well for you, though. The powder is really finely milled and I don't find it looks powdery if lightly dusted on and then buffed into the skin. It also leaves a smooth base that allows the powders you put on top of it to blend nicely.

My biggest issue with this powder is how dry it feels. Keep in mind, I have dry skin and live in a reeeeally dry environment, so I'm probably pickier than most about this. When I use this powder or feel it between my fingers, it feels chalky. It's finely milled, but it sucks all of the moisture from my skin. I make sure my skin is always well hydrated so it looks ok when I apply it, but it really feels dry and uncomfortable. I typically use a finishing spray like Fix+ on top of my makeup which helps a little, but when you do that it kind of reduced the smoothing, pore blurring effect.

Also- the packaging on this kind of sucks. It could be from keeping this in my makeup bag where it's being shaken around all the time, but the sifter lets too much product out and it always leaks or gets caught in the tracks of the cap, making it a bit hard to open and close. I wish it came with a poof or something to keep in the cap to stop powder from spilling out when not in use.

If you have normal skin or live in a more humid environment, you'd probably really like this powder as it does a good job otherwise, but definitely try this in store and feel it before you buy.

Moisturizers -It Cosmetics -Secret Sauce Anti-Aging Moisturizer

I haven't written a proper review in about 2 years I think. But I feel compelled to review this one for you.
First of all, the container is super heavy, perhaps even 2 lbs. heavy. So it feels very luxurious. Also you get a good amount, 2 fl. oz. Yes, it's a little pricy, but I'm willing to splurge on things that really work for me and do my favors! This doesn't have a strong smell at all, it's very light and clean - almost non-existent. BUT OH MY GOSH this stuff is AMAZING. I put it on after my shower at night, it also doubles as an eye cream, and it feels so beautiful on the skin, great for dry skin people like myself. When I wake up the next morning, my skin looks so much more plump and pillow, plush, moisturized deeply but not oily at all, just RIGHT. I am super impressed with this product and it makes me want to try other IT things! If I had to just have 1 item for my skincare, this would be it. It is anti-aging and I really see and feel the results, not to mention it is developed by plastic surgeons and for some reason that made me want to try it. So glad I did! The reviews do it justice! <3 <3

Concealers -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

on 9/6/2018 1:10:00 PM

So, I just recently bought this after reading mixed reviews on here, and a lot of raves on youtube. I wanted to try it for myself, cuz I just don't have an HG concealer & wanted to find one. Well, I'm pretty sure I have found one with the It By Bye Undereye!!

I wear the shade medium sand. For reference, I wear Dawn in EL double wear foundation. I am light (not fair) & have yellow undertones. I am 47 yrs old, but everyone says I look 37 😁

I am convinced that the people that are giving this concealer negative reviews are simply not applying it correctly (check out Lisa J Makeup on youtube - she does a fabulous tutorial!) I know other reviewers have stated that you only need the tiniest dot of this under each eye to cover everything. That is so true, and cannot be emphasized enough! But, not only do you need the tiniest dot, you also have to take your time blending it and patting it out. Like, twice as long or more than any other concealer I have ever tried. I probably spend at least one to two minutes per eye patting this out with my finger, or a small damp Beauty blender, which also works very well! It is very thick & moisturizing, so probably not as beneficial for younger people. But, even thought it is moisturizing, you MUST apply under eye cream before applying this concealer or it will not blend as well. Also, you need to allow a few minutes for your eye cream to sink in before applying this concealer.
I highly recommend for anyone with dark circles, fine lines, or dryness.

Eye Shadow -It Cosmetics -Naturally Pretty Essentials Matte Luxe Transforming Eye Shadow Palette

on 9/3/2018 4:49:00 PM

This is my favorite matte eyeshadow palette. I especially love the pinky beige color for my lids.

Pros:
* shadows are buttery soft and smooth
* has only 6 colors so it’s not overwhelming trying to choose which to use.
* if you are like me and only use dark colors in crease/ outer v or to line eyes you will be happy that there are only 2 dark colors: brown and charcoal
* you can turn the matte shades to a pearl finish with the transfoforming pearl shade ( I personally prefer them matte)
* there is one medium shade (a beige/ taupe shade)
*the packaging is small and stays closed and is perfect for travel

Cons:
* None really. If I could make one change to the palette I would love for there to be a matte mauve shade. But I’m a sucker for matte mauves, and that’s just a personal preference.

Pressed Powders -It Cosmetics -Bye bye pores pressed powder

Super surprised by the low reviews, I think this powder is fabulous! It blurs pores so amazingly, without being drying or cakey... I prefer to only use this on my cheeks, middle of forehead, and on my chin.. I buff it in with a kabuki and the result is a totally flawless/airbrushed look every time. Will definitely repurchase.

Pressed Powders -It Cosmetics -Bye bye pores pressed powder

This cost $29, and it is a decent powder. I like but do not love it. I have a very uneven skin tone, including very pale around my nose and inner cheeks and melasma patches on my outer cheeks/cheekbones. I don't have super huge pores. I do not wear foundation, only moisturizer and sunscreen, but I always powder my nose because it tends to be shiny and a bit red. This powder does nothing to diffuse my patchwork of different skin tones together (which I don't think it claims to do), but does make my nose less greasy and my face more matte when my sunscreen leaves me with a shiny look. I do not anticipating repurchasing this because I have used other drug store pressed powders that I like equally well for much less.

Loved loved loved this concealer, did not flake after putting it on ~ a little bit goes a long way ~ and it is definately buildable

definitely use your eye treatment, it is a little tacky applying but settles in very well and stays put all day long - love that it is waterproof ~ and I apply powder on top of it with a non-latex wedge or a small brush so that it is "baked"

Best concealer that really conceals with looking dry and cakey afterwards

A holy grail for me

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

As a sufferer of Rosacea, this product is fantastic. I don't feel like it clogs up my pores at all and actually lasts all day. The best CC/BB cream I've used to date. Also a bonus, IT Cosmetics is cruelty free!

The price tag is high, especially for the UK but worth every penny in my opinion

BB Cream -It Cosmetics -Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte w/ SPF 40

on 8/29/2018 7:07:00 PM

This cc cream works really well on my skin. I am fair with some redness and I used the shade fair light. This covers pretty well with a satin finish. I like that this product is semi-matte because I didn't want it to be drying on my sensitive skin. I purchased this because I loved the original formula, but it was a little too moisturizing and rich which I suspect contributed to some breakouts. I also appreciate that it's oil-free because I found the oils in the original cc cream to be slightly irritating. So overall, this formula is way better for oily acne prone skin. It has all the benefits of the original, but this feels so much more comfortable on my skin. A little goes a long way due to it's thickness. I use one pump and apply with my sigma flat top kabuki brush and the finish is really good coverage. Also, something to consider is the shades do run a little bit darker in this formula.
