I’m sad to say that the IT Cosmetics TSV from January 19th is sold out. It is such a wonderful kit. I received one from PR but too late to show the products but I also bought one for myself that will soon be for my very excited sister.  Most of the products will be available individually though so I want to share my update with pictures.it january tsv card

There were 5 fabulous products that were new to the kit. I have the kit in Fair and it’s a great shade for my fair skin.

CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream –
I’ve been a fan of IT Cosmetic’s Concealers for years and I own them all. This fuller coverage concealer is a treat because of the packaging (and of course the product). The packaging is called Cold Spoon Technology and it’s a refreshing touch of cool when you apply it. Just don’t squeeze too hard since a little goes a long way. This blends in beautifully and lasts. Plus it’s giving much needed SPF 50+ coverage.

CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact is the product I was most anxious to try and it was definitely worth the wait. This isn’t the cushion product that we’ve started to see. It’s their wonder CC+ Cream in compact form. Push the button and the product comes out. I use the sponge it comes with to apply. It’s wonderful for packing and it’s wonderful because it’s a fabulous CC Cream.

CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder is a talc free hydrating powder. It is beautiful over every foundation I’ve tried it with but especially over IT’s CC Cream. Not all powders are light enough for me but this is whisper soft.

The CC+ Angled Buffing Foundation Brush is the a terrific brush for the products in this kit and for all the other facial products I use. IT Cosmetic brushes are amazing and I wish I owned them all. Like all products from IT, they are cruelty free. If you read a lot of raves about them it’s because they are uniquely wonderful. This Angled Buffing brush is great for buffing in foundation as well as for use with a powder product. It’s also great for blending your blush so it looks seamless on your face.

Blurred Lines Smooth-Fill Lipstick ™ in LOVE.  What a pretty shade this is. Love is described by IT as a nude pink but I don’t find it to be nude at all. To me it’s a more universal sheer shade of a rose/pink. It’s formulated with nourishing ingredients that are meant to hydrate your lips: shea butter, jojoba, grape seed extract, cherry oil and hyaluronic acid.

You need to watch for these 5 items when they become available for purchase again. One of my favorite things about IT is when they have a TSV on QVC. The value is uncomparable.

Supercharge your eyes with Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Eye Creme

This summer is the summer of CC Creams for me. It’s not that I don’t love my foundations and BB Creams but I think I’ve been spoiled by the letters CC. I’m constantly reaching for these as my face color of choice and Ole Henriksen’s Perfect Truth™ CC Crème with broad spectrum SPF 30 is getting an awful lot of use. CC Creams aren’t that terribly different than BB Creams but for me they have more color correcting and more coverage. Plus I’m getting the best of all worlds with good old Ole these days because I’ve been sent his Perfect Truth™ CC Eye Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to test and share the results.

This CC Eye Crème is a triple threat because it not only protects my eyes with sunscreen, it also protects my eyes with its moisturizing and lightly conceals at the same time. The initials CC stand for Color Correcting and Ole Henriksen does this in a very soft way. If you need heavy duty concealing this isn’t going to do it but if you need to improve the appearance of your undereye area then you want to read on.

I almost always mix my concealer with an eye cream. I’ve been doing it for years. Perfect Truth™ CC Eye Crème saves me from that step since it is the eye cream. The moisturizing effect of this is great. The area under your eyes has the most delicate skin on your face and you need to care for it in a fragile way. When companies describe how to use their eye creams they always say to apply with your ring finger since they know you’ll have a lighter touch that way. No matter what finger or tool you use, don’t rub, just pat. That’s how Perfect Truth™ CC Eye Crème works best. You don’t need a lot either. This is an illuminating eye cream/concealer. It’s not flat so it gives my undereye area a very soft look. Almost like the camera stopped focusing on my dark circles and fine lines.

It’s loaded with wonderful ingredients:
-Proprietary Five-Source Vitamin C Complex: Brightens, firms, and strengthens.
-Tripeptide-5: Supports natural collagen and elastin; reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
-Ferulic Acid: Defends from environmental aggressors and prevents premature aging.
-Sodium Hyaluronate and Ceramides: Plump the look of skin while nourishing and replenishing moisture.

I don’t know about you but at my age I need all the strengthening, plumping and moisturizing I can get. This only comes in one shade but since the texture is so light I think this will work for just about everyone. You blend it in (with that ring finger) and you mostly see the moisturizing, not the concealing. I sometimes follow up with another concealer but most days I don’t need to. It seems to be enough for me lately. It illuminates under my eyes with light reflecting pigment that is meant to diffuse flaws. With time the skincare ingredients are meant to help brighten, fade spots and minimize fine lines. I’ve been using this about a month and I’m seeing the beginning of these effects. If I’m going out at night I’ll reapply this or another concealer just like I refresh my eyes, cheeks and lips.

I’m happy to have another Ole Henriksen product to keep me supercharged and protected from the damaging rays of the sun and the damaging everything of Father Time! — Marcia
