Did you hear the news? It Cosmetics is now available at Sephora! There are a few exclusives and a few of their best sellers. I’ll list the exclusives down below. Then I’ll include some of my personal favorite items that I feel are worth checking out. Before I get started I want to note that I plan to review a few of these exclusives. I’m still testing them out. For now I’ll list them and post a short description along with my first impression.

Exclusives

  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream – An intensive, antiaging eye cream designed to instantly brighten and reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles.

    It’s a pretty blue color. It has a nice, thick, creamy texture that doesn’t feel heavy. I’m still testing it out. I’ll report back.

  • It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment – An innovative, lip-reviving, color-infused balm that provides hydration and a naturally flushed lip color.

    This lip treatment comes in the cutest pink packaging. And is probably the most effective lip balm I’ve tried so far. I’m so surprised at how long it lasts. Usually I get a good hour out of my lip balm, but this has lasted through the night! It’s thick without leaving my lips feeling heavy or tacky. It moisturizes my lips and keeps them looking smooth and feeling incredibly soft.

  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Serum Advanced Anti-Aging Wrinkle-Smoothing Miracle Concentrate – A weightless serum that lifts, firms, fills in fine lines, and more—in as little as 10 days.

    I couldn’t wait to give this serum a try. I really wanted to see if the results in just 10 days claim was accurate. But the moment I put this product on my face I suffered a reaction. I guess it didn’t get along with my super sensitive skin. The following day my skin was covered in tiny white bumps and the surrounding skin was red and irritated. I’m pretty bummed because I had such high hopes. It has a nice citrus scent and felt pretty lightweight. Unfortunately there’s not much else I can say about it as it just didn’t agree with me. It has some great reviews though. I would definitely suggest giving it a try if you don’t have sensitive skin. If you do have sensitive skin, maybe do a patch test first. I just dove right in. I apparently never learn.

  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Primer Oil-Free Powerless Skin-Perfecting Serum Primer – A weightless, oil-free primer that blurs away pores and provides a smooth, matte finish for flawless makeup application.

    I’ve been using this since I received it and have been liking it so far. I’m still testing it out though and will definitely be writing up a proper review.

  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm – A revolutionary, three-in-one cleanser, purifying makeup remover, and antiaging serum for better looking skin.

    I’m still testing this out.

  • It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour Super Smart Skin-Perfecting Beauty Fluid SPF 50+ – A game-changing, multitasking beauty fluid with SPF 50+ that protects, hydrates, and evens the look of skintone.

    I’m still testing this out.

  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer – A full-coverage, antiaging, and waterproof concealer infused with subtle radiance.

    A true full coverage waterproof concealer. This stuff covers beautifully, but I find it to be too thick for my liking. Because of that it can be a little tricky to work with. I prefer to use it as a spot treatment rather than for my under eye area.

  • It Cosmetics HHeavenly Skin™ CC+™ Skin-Perfecting Brush #702 – A revolutionary brush featuring patent-pending, skincare-infused brush hair for flawless-looking skin and makeup.

    This brush is very soft! It’s not as soft and dreamy as some of their other brushes, but it’s definitely softer than most of my other brushes. The handle is a little on the bulky side.

  • Favorites

  • It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara – One of my go-to mascaras.

    You can see my full review here.

  • It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ – I’m not very big on CC creams, but this is definitely one of the best ones I’ve tried.

    You can see my full review here.

  • It Cosmetics You Sculpted Contour Palette – This is not actually on the Sephora website, but since I’m talking about my favorites I just had to mention it. Because I still use this regularly and it’s my go-to contour palette.

It Cosmetics Superhero Eye Transforming Super Palette

It Cosmetics Superhero Eye Transforming Super Palette

I’m a bit of a palette collector. I tend to gravitate more toward the bold and colorful palettes, but nothing beats a nice neutral palette. It’s always good to have a few good neutral palettes for those days you don’t have time to fuss over a look. The problem is I rotate through the few neutral palettes I do have and it can get a little boring. That is until this baby landed on my doorstep! The It Cosmetics Superhero Eye Transforming Anti-Aging Super Palette! Talk about a mouthful, eh? Let’s see what’s inside!

Swatches: Confidence, Pow!, Magical, Limitless, Powerful, Aura, Unstoppable, Superstar, Fearless, Bold, Daring, Superhero

The shadows are enclosed in a sleek black cardboard packaging. It’s fairly sturdy, but keeping this palette open was a bit of a problem. Getting that photo of it open was very time consuming. It just didn’t want to stay open. You really have to bend that cover back to keep it from closing on you.

This palette contains 3 Superhero Eye Foundation Eyeshadows that color-correct , neutralize and smooth for perfectly prepped lids, 3 Superhero Nudes, 3 Superhero Neutrals, and 3 Superhero Liners. The shadows are infused with hydrolyzed collagen, silk, peptides, antioxidants, and groundbreaking Superhero Pigment Power Technology! It is said to work well for all skin tones. I found the shadows to be soft and velvety. The Liners were a little on the dry side, but most liner shades in palettes are. Well, to me they are anyway. Aside from that they were all fairly pigmented. I really don’t know if I’d say SUPER pigmented though. I did experiment a bit and applied some of them wet and it makes a world of a difference! Seriously, wet your brush a bit, dip it in Superstar, pat it onto your lid, it’s a beautiful shadow!

You can see a look I created with the It Cosmetics Superhero Eye Transforming Super Palette below. I used Confidence as my base. I tried this same look twice, once using Confidence as my base, and once without using a Foundation Eyeshadow as my base. The Foundation Eyeshadow actually does make the shadows pop more. Anyway, I applied Superstar on my lid, Fearless in my crease, Pow! on the inner corner of my eye and as my highlight, and Bold on my lower lash line. I assure you that Superstar looks so much more pigmented and prettier in person. It’s easily my favorite shadow in the palette. If you get the chance to swatch it in person, do so! You’ll see what I mean! My camera tends to pick up on the shimmer more than anything.

I also want to take a moment to talk about the Heavenly Luxe® No-Tug® Dual Eyeshadow Brush #5. This dual ended eyshadow brush includes an all-over brush on one end and a smudge brush on the other end. They’re incredibly soft like all of the other It Cosmetics brushes I’ve had the luxury of trying. The smudge brush isn’t at all harsh on your lower lash line and the tip is fine enough for precise application. It’s definitely one of the nicer smudge brushes I’ve used.

Overall I’d have to say that it’s a nice neutral palette with some really beautiful shadows. It will make an excellent addition to my collection. So if you’re a neutral palette lover be on the lookout for this New Limited Edition palette! Last I checked it was available on the Ulta website for $42.00.

Starting the week off with some more It Cosmetics goodness! Today I will be talking about the It Cosmetics Sunshine in a Compact Bronzer in Warmth. Here’s the description from the It Cosmetics website: ‘Experience your most youthful, natural-looking, sun-kissed skin! Developed with leading plastic surgeons, this game-changing, talc-free matte bronzer is infused with proprietary Drops of Light Technology™ to add instant radiance without any glitter or shimmer, just skin-perfecting vitality and an airbrushed finish. Ideal for all skin types and tones, it never settles into fine lines and wrinkles—and treats your skin with anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, silk and antioxidants while blurring away the look of pores and imperfections. Use on both your face and body for an all-over, flawlessly airbrushed glow!’

The compact is HUGE! I think it’s the largest bronzer I own. That’s totally not a bad thing! What’s bad is how hard this sucker was to open. I really had to use some force to pry it open. And it doesn’t get any easier each time I use it. Which is a shame because it’s really pretty! It feels pretty smooth. It’s not super pigmented, but it does build up nicely. I actually used it to contour my face a bit and thought it made for a nice subtle contour. I really like the nice healthy glow it left on my skin. Aside from how difficult it was to open, it’s a really nice bronzer!

If I’m being honest the real star of the show here is the It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Angled Radiance Brush #10! This is the second It Cosmetics brush I’ve used and they are seriously the softest, dreamiest brushes I’ve ever used! I’ve been using this brush to contour ever since I received it. I find that it’s the perfect size for contouring my face. And because it’s so soft it doesn’t irritate my skin the way some other brushes do. I told y’all my skin was sensitive! I totally plan to check out more of their brushes because I’m impressed with the two that I’ve tried so far.
