Moisturizers -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Undereye Eye Cream

on 6/8/2018 2:45:00 AM

I bought a travel sample set of IT Bye Bye under eye concealers at Sephora and a little travel sized version of eye cream came with it. I have fairly deep hollows, dark circles (accentuated from the shadow of the hollow) and lines under my eyes, plus since hitting perimenopause, my eyelids have dropped and have become hooded within one year.
So, I decided why not, sure.
When I first tried it, it didn't work and I threw it in a drawer.
Then I read reviews on Sephora several months later and decided to give it another go. But this time instead of putting it on sparingly and very thinly, I put it on quite thick. Then left it, went to work. Half way through the day I caught myself in the mirror and saw my hollows had filled out! So my dark circles weren't nearly so bad anymore and my whole skin was brighter around my eyes.
OK. I'll give this a serious shot then. It has been 8 days. And yeah, if I put a thick layer of cream on, let it absorb, it really does help the look of my eyes. So I started using it before make up (I can't wear make up to work) when I go out, and I don't have to use anywhere near as much concealer/colour corrector.
Considering the price of decent product mature skin eye cream, it is very reasonable. And there is quite a bit of product that you get for your money. But I do have to put it on thicker - perhaps because of perimenopause my under eye is just very dry.

Makeup Brushes -It Cosmetics -Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush #7

on 6/6/2018 2:26:00 PM

This is a small brush and ridiculously over priced but it's well made and soft. No shedding and the small end is nice for concealing. I use this with the IT CC powder and it applies well. Anyone paying $48 for it though should know I bought this off of Groupon for under $20. If it's a knock off it's not detectable. I've used the $48 brush and it looks, feels and performs exactly the same. I'd set my money on fire in the middle of Ulta before I repurchased this brush at full price.

Great coverage and pigment, tiny amount of this hides dark circles. The trick is to use mush less than you first think you'll need

I LOVE how this makes my skin look. I don’t put it all over my entire face because it’s too thick for that and would look weird, but if I put it just on my t-zone, nose, and chin, it evens out my color so beautifully while maintaining a natural looking texture.

I appreciate this CC cream because of the amazing coverage it gives and how even people who are new to makeup can use it - it is really one of those products that you can "slap" on, or apply with any beauty tool, and it looks great. However, I'm not a big fan of the smell. I would prefer it to smell like nothing, rather than the odd lemony smell it has. I'm not sure why it has a lemony smell, reminiscent of a cleaning product. It may be the sunscreen, but I wish it didn't have any fragrance.

This CC cream worked really well for me and I liked it. Initially, I thought the price was a bit high but the tube lasted a very long time. One pump was more than enough for me to cover my entire face. I used a brush sometimes but it worked better with my fingers. I did have to use a powder, but I have to do that with every foundation or bb/cc cream. The coverage is buildable but still very natural. I didn't have any issue with it sinking in or accentuating my pores (and I get that a lot!) as some other reviewers. I like the high spf. The pump did get a little messy and once it started to run lower would sputter a bit but I feel like I really got the full value.

I bought a small size from Ulta for traveling and will definitely buy the full size again.

Bought this a couple day ago in the "medium" shade...tried a bit on in the store & it looked sort of ok,
so I bought it. I was impressed that it had peptides in it. Trying it out at home on completely clean
face, it was way too yellow; plus, it sank into a divet on my skin that seldom traps anything I put on.
My bad for over-working a deep pimple; but, seriously, I can't have this CC magnifying it!

I love this. I put off buying it for years because the ingredients list looked scary to my acne prone, sensitive skin.

I was looking through pics last summer when I wore elta md physical in place of foundation, and decided I'd really like a more cosmetically elegant sunscreen option.

I bought this, juice beauty cc cream, missha bb cream, bare minerals complexion gel, bare minerals pro foundation and it cosmetics celebration foundation.

The clear winner for me has been the combo of it cc cream w the it celebration over it.

My face has gotten no color this year at all! I have no capillaries popping up and I'm 35 weeks pregnant. W dd1 I got a bunch of capillaries. My skin is overall in better shape. No breakouts and old red marks seem to be smoothed out with continued wear.

The coverage is medium to full. I actually haven't been using concealer. I can even use the cc cream under the eye and for Day to day it covers just fine.

The product also builds up pretty well. I can definitely build on spots for extra coverage where needed.

One con is it does look a bit makeupey. IME all physical ss has more of a pastey consistency so this is a thicker product. A tiny amount will blend out beautifully but if you expect any sun coverage you do kinda need to use a sufficient amount. I try to use close to a pump and a half and get my eyelids and everywhere. If you're not relying on this for sun protection you can definitely use less and have a nice finish to the skin! Even with me using quite a bit it still sits on my skin worlds better than the elta md did.

I still use elta or cotz sensitive if I'm going to be outdoors for the day but most days just running errands this is an awesome summer time foundation

I purchased this for a tropical vacation - I figured the high mineral SPF would take care of my sun protection needs while giving me some decent coverage. I was right on both counts but OH BOY DID I HATE WHAT THIS DID TO MY SKIN. Initially, the finish seemed pretty decent - matte but with a tiny bit of luminosity. However, there is something in this that sucked the life right out of my skin. This, coupled with the slightly luminous finish I mentioned highlighted pores and lines that I never even noticed before when I have no makeup on at all!! What the what???

My skin felt dry and tight after a few mins too which is odd because my skin is generally very oily. If you don't experience this type of irritation this might be a pretty decent product! I have had a similar experience with L'Oreal Pro Matte and Estee Lauder Double Wear - all 3 products feel like dry cement on my face after they dry down.

The packaging is pretty awesome - it's not glam but the squeeze tube/pump combo is super sanitary. A little bit of product also seems to go a long way, so the value here is pretty good despite the price. However, the irritation this caused mean I took this back to Sephora asap!

Pros:
-nice finish
-high mineral SPF
-highly concentrated product
-good value

Cons:
-drying, irritating formula
-highlights pores and fine lines

I have medium length flat lashes and this mascara gave a lot of volume to my lashes. I wouldn't describe it as a lengthening mascara and it's definitely not seperating. I find that it starts to flake as it gets older. I notice minimum smudging when I use more hydrating products on my undereyes (like Kiehl's Avocado Eye Cream or my BareSkin concealer). It's not a bad mascara but I wouldn't repurchase it because I enjoy more the Mad Lash Mascara by the Balm.

I purchased this product from Ulta on Saturday and will be returning it this Saturday. I've been using the CC cream in light for about 2 years. The IT representative did a swatch on me using the light and medium colors and advised me to purchase the medium which is okay but not great. The light color was a little too light for me.

Bye Bye lines leaves my face feeling dry and itchy. The foundation immediately sinks into my pores and lines. I prefer a natural look but the coverage with this particular foundation was sparse and streaky on me. The CC cream is a quick easy application with no missed areas (10 x magnification mirror) I'm sitting here at work and my face is itching like crazy. I set the makeup with Bye Bye pores finishing powder and it didn't improve the appearance of Bye Bye Lines foundation. Ulta has 40% off on this product but still not worth the money I spent. SOoooo...Bye Bye Lines Foundation to you on Saturday when I return you to Ulta for a refund!

Great wand, but the mascara feels uncomfortable on lashes. I bought a mini version and decided to keep the wand and trash the product.

I've been trying the mini version of this from the Sephora Lashstash to Go collection. It's a pretty decent mascara, which gives very good length more than thickening I would say. It does smudge slightly under my eyes at the end of the day, as do many mascaras as I have watery eyes, although I only apply mascara to my upper lashes. Not sure I would repurchase given how many good mascaras there are at the drugstore these days for a lot less money.

Got the mini as a birthday gift at Ulta. Applied really wet, but nicely. Didn't love the drying time, but loved the results enough to spend $$ on the full size. Big mistake. With bigger brush (which bent super easily) came much more product, seriously wet and clumping galore. The clumps just smeared with my spoolie. Had to wipe off all eye makeup and start over one too many times, tossed it. Also, does not stay more than 2-3 hours. I need all day power. Reapplying at noon is not in my schedule.
