IT Cosmetics has a new addition to their Your Skin But Better CC+ line. It now comes in an Oil-Free Matte formula! They also included a few different shades. They recently added 48 shades to their Bye Bye Under Eye line. So I’m hoping they will start rolling out more shades for their other products as well.

The IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40 comes in the prettiest packaging. It claims to deliver color-correcting full coverage for a poreless, natural-looking matte finish. It also claims not to crease or crack while reducing oil and shine for up to 12 hours. It’s infused with charcoal to detoxify, colloidal clay to absorb oil, tea tree extract to combat blemishes, with anti-aging serum made of hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and antioxidants.

I’ve been wearing the shade Light for the past week. Their Light shade has always been a fairly decent match. However, I can’t help but feel like this one is a lot darker than their other Light products. It was also very thick and creamy. I ended up thinning it out a bit with my moisturizer and in the end it worked out beautifully. I used my trusty Beauty Blender to apply it. It applied nicely and did a great job at evening things out. Including my redness. I did have to build up a bit around my cheeks, but it built up nicely. I will say that while I didn’t experience any issues with creasing, if you get too carried away with the building up it will crease and even start to look a little cakey. I would probably reach for this during good skin days and maybe opt for something else when I need that extra coverage. Thankfully that’s not something I have to worry about these days. This CC+ Cream has really been doing the trick.

I wouldn’t say it felt lightweight, but it did feel comfortable and more natural. I even feel like it looked more natural. It did start to break up around my nose and mouth after about 6 or so hours. But considering I wore this out during a heatwave (and my thinning it out) I’d say that’s still pretty good. I honestly don’t see this lasting 12 hours, but I would feel comfortable wearing this to work or a night out. I do want to note that I did set this with a powder afterward. I also used a setting spray. You can see the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte in the shade Light in action below.

I ended up loving this CC+ Cream. I love it more than the original. I love the way it felt on my skin. I love the way it looked. It didn’t irritate my super sensitive skin. And I’m very impressed with how well it evened out my skin. This has really come in handy during the warmer days given that it offers sun protection and helps control oil. The only downside might be finding a shade that will work for you.

Have you tried the new IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte? What foundation have you been wearing this Summer?

It Cosmetics Fall 2017 Must-Haves

It Cosmetics Fall 2017 Must-Haves

It Cosmetics Fall 2017 Must-Haves

I’m not sure if you’ve been keeping up with It Cosmetics on social media, but man have they been on fire! They introduced a whole Fall 2017 Must-Haves line up including some new and exciting products! Below I’ll list everything I received along with descriptions and my first impressions. I’m currently testing everything out. It’ll take me some time before I can write up proper reviews. I’m also working on doing a full face using ALL It Cosmetics products! So be on the lookout for that later on this month. And if there’s anything you’re curious about, let me know in the comments and I’ll make that review a priority!

It Cosmetics Fall 2017 Must-Haves

Confidence in a Cleanser $28.00
Skin transforming hydrating cleansing serum that is suitable for all skin types. This formula melts away dirt, oil, and even makeup. It contains Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate to help your skin look rejuvenated while restoring moisture. It also contains collagen and hyaluronic acid to plump the appearance of lines and wrinkles instantly.

I’ve used this a few times since receiving it. So far I think this is my favorite product from the line up. I did detect a faint citrusy scent, but it wasn’t bothersome. I found it to be nice and refreshing. It did a great job at removing my makeup all while being gentle on my super sensitive skin. I didn’t notice much about the lines and wrinkles, but I wasn’t really paying much attention. I wanted to make sure it played nice with my sensitive skin. My skin was left feeling soft and had a subtle glow. The weird thing is that my redness was evened out. Usually my cheeks are left rosy after washing off my makeup. That wasn’t the case with this cleanser. I’m wondering if the oatmeal and/or aloe helped to soothe it? Either way it was a very nice surprise.

Swatches: Universal Transforming Taupe, Super Black

Superhero Liner $24.00
24 hour waterproof easy glide liquid gel super liner in the shade Super Black! Contains lash enhancing peptides, collagen, and keratin along with kaolin clay to absorb oil on lids for long lasting wear.

I tried this out the day after receiving it. It glided onto my lids effortlessly. It created one heck of a wing too! The fine tip helps with precise lining. And it really is long lasting. The only issues I experienced was removal. It’s a bit difficult to remove. Other than that I’m liking it so far!

Brow Power Powder $24.00, Heavenly Luxe Brow Power Universal Brow-Transformer Brush No. 21 $24.00
Brow Power Powder comes in just one shade and that’s Universal Transforming Taupe. The Brow Power Technology is said to transform to all hair colors based on pressure. It’s also waterproof!

Unlike other brow products, I found the texture of this one to be really soft and buttery. It applied beautifully. I’m not sure how the universal taupe will work for EVERYONE, but I personally liked it. I love experimenting with makeup, but come on, I’m no brow expert. I know my brows need help. I’m always afraid of overdoing it and end up missing the mark most times. But I felt confident with this powder. I really liked the outcome. I might just move this on over into my daily essentials drawer.

The brush is also quite nice. The spoolie is nice and soft. I felt like it was more gentle on my brows. The brush tip is a little thicker than I’d like, but I have a feeling that ended up working in my favor.

Brow Power Pomade $24.00
4-in-1 formula that acts as a brow gel, brow lifting mousse, brow sculpting pomade, and brow defining brush applicator.

Anti-aging, skin smoothing, invisible coverage. Covers the look of imperfections while lifting and diffusing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Swatches (Left – Right): Radiant Honey, Radiant Light, Radiant Neutral

Perfect Lighting Radiant Touch Magic Wand $29.00
Correct, conceal, and brighten! 2-in-1 concealer and correcting brightener that delivers instant coverage, radiance, and lift.

These are very pretty and I love the packaging! But the clickable wands gave me so much trouble. Most of them do. I really wish this came in a tube with a wand applicator instead. The clickable wand either dispenses too little product or too much product. I found it to be more trouble than anything. Which is too bad because they’re really pretty!

I haven’t tried this yet, but plan to ASAP! The only thing I can say is that it’s rich and creamy and I didn’t detect a scent.

Swatches (Top-Bottom): Instant Warm Glow, Instant Natural Glow, Instant Nude Glow

Just when I think It Cosmetics has completely outdone themselves, they go and do it again! This time it’s with Confidence In Your Glow! When I first saw promo photos and heard they were in some Ulta stores I actually ran out to try and track them down. Unfortunately the only Ulta store in my area didn’t have them yet. Thankfully the kind people from It Cosmetics sent over one of each of their gorgeous Confidence In Your Glow Palettes along with the Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder Brush #705.

It Cosmetics Confidence In Your Glow

First of all, the packaging is just gorgeous! The palettes come in a cardboard packaging, but it’s very sturdy. It closes with a magnetic logo on the bottom left part of the palette. It gives the palette a fancy/elegant feel. I really do think it’s a beautiful touch! When you first open it you’re greeted with a slight citrus scent. I normally don’t care for scented products, but I found this scent to be pretty refreshing. And it wasn’t overwhelming. It does go away once you apply the product.

Instant Warm Glow

Instant Nude Glow

There are 3 shades to choose from. Instant Warm Glow which provides you with the prettiest peachy-pink flush along with the richest shade of bronzer. Instant Natural Glow for a natural, warm, rosy glow. And Instant Nude Glow which provides you with the softest, sheerest, natural glow. These palettes are all infused with high-performance anti-aging ingredients along with vitamin C to help transform your complexion making it appear more younger, smoother, and brighter! I can see why they call it a one-step wonder! I found each of these shades to be nicely pigmented. They have a nice soft texture and applied and blended like a dream!

The Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder fits perfectly into the palettes truly making it a one-sweep wonder! Like their other brushes, I found the Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder to be incredibly soft. The reflective handle does get dirty very easily, but it’s a super cute brush and pretty unique too! This brush is also perfect for applying contour and highlight. It really is a nifty little brush! And did I mention how cute it is?

I highly suggest checking these beauties out if you spot them at your local Ulta. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
