The Beauty Spotlight Team introduces Marcia’s Holy Grail repurchases

hearts-backgroundHave you ever heard of a Quartermaster? According to Wikipedia a Quartermaster is “generally a relatively senior soldier who supervises stores and distributes supplies and provisions”. And according to Merriam Webster  a Quartermaster is “a military officer responsible for providing quarters, rations, clothing, and other supplies”. Well consider me a Quartermaster when it comes to personal products in my home. Many years ago my sister and BIL lived in the same apartment building as I did. My BIL used to call me the Quartermaster since he knew if they needed something my apartment was the place to find it. I was well stocked because “what if” I ran out of necessities (in those days it was mostly toilet paper, kleenex, and red licorice).

I’m the Quartermaster of my home now too. I don’t like to run out of what I consider necessities (which still includes toilet paper, kleenex, and red licorice). I have quite a few items that I repurchase way before they get too low. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Starting with cosmetics these are products I already have backups of since I use them all the time.

Mally Poreless Face Defender

Mally Poreless Face Defender

Mally Beauty Poreless Defender rocks my world. I’m currently on my 3rd one and to be honest I have 2 more ready to go.

Mally Poreless Face Defender

Mally Poreless Face Defender

I received my first one in a QVC TSV and fell for it instantly. It is a clear product that mattifies skin and more important blurs pores. Since my first one I’ve tried several other blurring products but I always go back to Mally. I rarely wear powder anymore so I apply it on my cheeks prior to blush application.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream and Too Faced Shadow Insurance

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream and Too Faced Shadow Insurance

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream and Too Faced Shadow Insurance are products I’m never without. After discovering IT Cosmetic’s Bye Bye Under Eye I knew I wanted to try something else from the brand. CC+ Cream was the answer and still is. I also have CC+ Illuminating Cream (press samples) but the original is HG material. What’s there left to say about Too Faced Shadow Insurance? I always have one of these at the ready. I like buying other eyeshadow primers since I think they are vital but TFSI is definitely my favorite.

Benefit Roller Ball, Pixi Endless Gel Eyebrow Pencil, Physician's Formula liquid eyeliner, Pixi Brow Powder Palette

Benefit Roller Ball, Pixi Endless Gel Eyebrow Pencil, Physician’s Formula liquid eyeliner, Pixi Brow Powder Palette

I love eye makeup so much that it’s a weakness of mine. I’ve discovered 4 products that I keep in stock even though they take a long time to use up.

PIXI Endless Gel Eyebrow Pencil isn’t the most loved product that Pixi makes but it’s a favorite of mine. I love it when I’m in a hurry especially since it’s a gel that fills in my brows quickly and lasts the day. The only negative is that I like to resharpen prior to every use so I go through this quickly.

Pixi Endless Brow Gel Pen in Medium

Pixi Endless Brow Gel Pen in Medium

PIXI Brow Powder Palette is another eyebrow love. I am not near done with my first but already bought a second. I was at Target and there it was so I swooped it up. I basically only use two shades and occasionally the others to personalize the shade I want. Plus I can use the other shades as eyeliner and brow highlight.

BENEFIT ROLLER BALL MASCARA totally surprised me. I kept reading about it but I don’t buy many products from Benefit. I finally wanted to see what the fuss was about so I ordered one. SOLD! I’ve gone through 2 tubes plus a deluxe sample size and have the one in the box ready for service. I like the way my lashes look with this – curled and lifted, no smudging, last all day, and a dark black. You can even find this in a travel size if you want to try it out.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Physician’s Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum is my favorite liquid eyeliner. It only is available in black and brown and it’s brown that’s my HG product. It’s so hard to find a wonderful brown liquid liner and I looked long and hard. I have others I really like (Stila, Youngblood) but if you made me stick to one it would be PF. It never skips, it’s long lasting, it’s reasonably priced, and it’s a beautiful brown shade. I’m assuming that the serum helps with longer lashes but I can’t quantify that.

Tweezerman Slant Tip Tweezers and Eyelash Comb

Tweezerman Slant Tip Tweezers and Eyelash Comb

Where would I be without Tweezerman? A hairy mess is where. I remember buying my first Tweezerman Slant Tip Tweezers and making everyone I taught with buy one too. I was amazed at how precise they were, all these years later I still feel the same way. I only pictured three but I have at least 5. I used to send them in for repair but I never liked how they worked after so now I just buy new ones. And keep spares on hand.

Then there’s the Tweezerman Folding iLash Comb – how many do I have? 3 to be exact. Told you I stocked up on things! I tend to misplace items and this is a tool I use so often that I don’t want to be without it. I use it prior to curling my lashes when I notice they are winky and after to make sure that there are no clumps. You don’t know what your eyelashes are missing if you don’t have this tool.

And there’s more. Some you’ve seen before so I’ll be short with descriptions:

Brazilian Blowout Acai Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner are my go-to hair products. I get a Brazilian Blowout about once a year but I use these year round. I like to switch around hair products but these two and the treatments are what are always in my bathroom. They keep the frizzies down and my hair is healthy with these.

Brazilian Blowout Acai Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner

Bioderma Sensiblo H2) Micellar Water is something I wonder how I lived without. I was late to this trend but I’m right on top of it now. The 16.7 oz bottle seems like it’s more expensive than the drugstore ones but it’s twice the size and lasts forever.

Bioderma Sensiblo H20 Micelar Water

Bioderma Sensiblo H20 Micelar Water

Mary Kay Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover is something I always mention. It beats the rest by a mile! It’s gentle, removes everything for me without stinging, and doesn’t leave a film behind.

Can’t forget my favorite DHC Silky Cotton Squares! Goldilocks would say “just right”.

J.R. WATKINS NATURAL LIQUID HAND SOAP is in all my bathrooms. I love Lemon and when I can find it I like Grapefruit. I’ve been buying the big refills lately.

That’s about it though I forgot to photograph both Aveeno Fragrance Free Daily Radiance Moisturizing Lotion and Touche Eclat Radiant Touch. I always have backups of these two.

So how do you think I’m doing as the Quartermaster? Would you hire me?  —  Marcia

IT Cosmetics is known for their brushes so it’s not a surprise that there’s a new one in the TSV and it’s amazing.

SUPERHERO Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara has been on my love list since I was first introduced to it. It’s a conditioning mascara that is extra black. It’s in charge of 3 things: super volume, super lift, and super length. Alone this mascara sells for $24 so the TSV price of $59.94 makes it basically free.

Last you’ll find that IT Cosmetics has extended their Je Ne Sais Quoi hydrating lip treatment with the shade Rose. Previously it was only available in the original Je Ne Sais Quoi pink that adjusts to your body temperature. Rose is a darker shade so you’ll notice it more. Remember this is a lip TREATMENT but it gives you enough color so that this can be your color of the day. It is a peptide-infused treatment with essential butters and oils, hyaluronic filling spheres and anti-oxidants so you’ll end up with soft, healthy lips. It’s not a long lasting lip color but it is moisturizing so that rosy pink is going to be a joy to reapply.

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact swatches

I am loving the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact – it’s a beautiful solid serum foundation that provides all the benefits of the Confidence in a Cream Moisturizer with a full coverage foundation. Plus, it has full sun protections with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB physical sunscreen. Today I have swatches for all seven available shades.                                                                 samples

IT Cosmetics 2IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact serum/foundation comes in seven different shades:

  • Fair: porcelain skin; fairest of the fair
  • Light: if you have a bit more warmth to your skin
  • Medium: light to medium skintones
  • Medium Tan: if you have a warm or golden-medium skintone
  • Tan: tan skintones
  • Rich: tan to rich skin with golden tones
  • Deep: rich to deep skin with a warmer tones

There is a learning curve with this foundation. At first I was using way too much and it settled into my fine lines and wrinkles. This is such a rich foundation that you only need a small amount. Start with a tiny bit and then build from there. The right amount buffed in properly gives me incredibly glowy skin with an even skin tone.  Here are pics and swatches for all the shades. First up, the four lightest shades:IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact Fair and LightConfidence in a Compact FairConfidence in a Cream LightIT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact Medium and Medium TanConfidence in a Compact MediumConfidence in a Compact Medium TanIT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact swatches

IT Cosmetics makes me happy AND confident. Confidence in a Cream, Confidence in a Compact, and Skin Soothing Complexion Brush

It CosmeticsLately I have been using a great combination of products that have made my skin super happy…which then helps my confidence in general.  My trio includes IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream, Confidence in a Compact, and the Skin Smoothing Complexion Brush.

IT Cosmetics 2IT Cosmetics sent me a whole slew of shades of the Confidence in a Compact, as well as the cream and brush, which is what got me onto my quest for confidence.  Here’s some general info and what I find works so well for me.

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a CreamIT Cosmetics Confidence in a CreamConfidence in a Cream™ is a day and night moisturizer that seems to do everything. It moisturizes thirsty skin, giving it a nice glow; it tackles skin texture and leaves it feeling smooth; it evens out skin tone; it reduces the look of pores.

What’s inside to help create all of these skin miracles is a little something IT Cosmetics calls their Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate.Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate, which includes collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal. I love the texture of this incredible mix of ingredients. It’s thick and fluffy and it feels decadent when applied. It does have a scent that I can’t quite put my finger on…I don’t particularly like it, but it’s light and it dissipates quickly.

I find that when I use this in the morning (and I never forget to also apply this liberally to my décolleté) I don’t need a primer, especially when I use the Confidence in a Compact as my foundation.

Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+ is a solid serum foundation that provides all the benefits of the Confidence in a Cream Moisturizer with a full coverage foundation. Plus, it has full sun protections with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB physical sunscreen.

This serum/foundation comes in seven different shades:
  • Fair: porcelain skin; fairest of the fair

  • Medium: light to medium skintones
  • Medium Tan: if you have a warm or golden-medium skintone
  • Tan: tan skintones
  • Rich: tan to rich skin with golden tones
  • Deep: rich to deep skin with a warmer tones

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush

IT Cosmetics Skin Smoothing Complexion Brush

This brush is wonderfully soft, but it has enough density to keep it firm.  The cut is excellent – it buffs the foundation into every nook and cranny, hugging the contours of your face so the end result is darn close to an airbrushed look.  The foundation compact comes with a sponge, but I recommend using the Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush for the absolute best results.

I am loving these three complexion confidence boosters from IT Cosmetics — what are some of your favorites?  – Lisa

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream
LISA SHARES:

I love the name of this product. Confidence in a Cream™?  Sign me up! This is the very first time IT Cosmetics has offered Confidence in a Cream in a TSV collection. This day and night moisturizer seems to do everything. It moisturizes thirsty skin, giving it a nice glow; it tackles skin texture and leaves it feeling smooth; it evens out skin tone; it reduces the look of pores. Sounds like great skin to me.

It does have a scent that I can’t quite put my finger on…I don’t particularly like it, but it’s light and it dissipates quickly. Does it work? You betcha. IT Cosmetics did a clinical study and check out these results:

  • 100% said skin was soft, smooth & infused with moisture*
  • 97% said skin looked and felt rejuvenated*
  • 94% said skin felt younger and healthier*
  • 81% said pores appeared minimized, and fine lines & wrinkles appeared less noticeable*

*Results observed in a consumer panel survey.

Confidence in a Cream is a terrific moisturizer with an elegant formula that your face and décolleté will love, especially if you tend towards dry skin.IMG_4332Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+

Anything that multitasks is a winner and I think a foundation that is also a skin treating serum is a genius idea. Way to go IT Cosmetics!

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush

Now that Lisa has told you about the amazing Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50 you are going to be thrilled with the new brush that will help your skin look even more amazing. The Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush is a breakthrough product. If you’ve had the opportunity to use other Heavenly Skin brushes through other TSV’s you already know how soft and wonderful these brushes are. The brush is custom-cut and applies the serum foundation effortlessly. The way it’s cut helps it hug the contours of your face so that you end up looking like you’ve airbrushed your foundation. While the compact comes with a sponge, you will be in heaven using the brush. This is a new brush that you can’t buy any other way!

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream is so easy for me to write about because I’ve been using it for months. It’s become a staple in my life. I’m someone who uses an eye cream twice a day and love trying new ones. But I also have my favorites that stay with me even after testing is done and IT Cosmetics made the grade with Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream. It’s a very light blue unscented product. It is in a jar which many people will be negative about but not me. I use a small clean spatula to remove the cream so that I’m not interfering with the integrity of the eye cream.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream is infused with caffeine, vitamin C, collagen and peptides. I couldn’t ask for more. My dark circles couldn’t ask for more nor could my fine lines. This is an eye cream that you want in your life and on your face. This jar will last you a very long time.

Now that you’ve seen this be sure to order A287731 for single delivery of these 4 magical products. It’s a $182 value that QVC will later sell $97 but now you can buy it for $79.96 and free shipping. Don’t be late to this party since it ends when January 14th ends.

Your perfect pink lips for 2017 from IT Cosmetics!

IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi lippiesHere’s a great resolution for 2017:  find your perfect pink lippie! The best place to start is with IT Cosmetics since they have many Je Ne Sais Quoi lip products and one is bound to be the perfect pink for you. Here are just five of the wonderful possibilities you can find at IT Cosmetics:                                                                              samplesIT Cosmetics YLBB All-Day Waterproof Lip Liner Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi

  1.  Your Lips But Better All-Day Waterproof Lip Liner Stain ($20):  This long lasting lip liner comes in nine shades, but your perfect pink is probably Je Ne Sais Quoi. It’s not just a lipliner, it’s also a stain so I love to wear this with a bit of clear gloss for fuss-free lips. Ingredients are amazing, including Peptides, Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, hydrating Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe, and Jojoba so lips stay soft and supple.  Another bonus?  Lots of Anti-Aging antioxidants including Vitamins A, C, E, Acai, Green Tea and White Tea to protect against free-radicals.Vitality Lip Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lipstick Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi
  2. Vitality Lip Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lipstick Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi ($20):  Want a soft, natural pink that works as a lipstick, balm, and stain? Look no further than this beauty. The clear formula works with your body chemistry to create the perfect pink flush. Anti-Aging Antioxidants including Vitamins A, C, E, Acai, Green Tea and White Tea Plum Oil, Cherry Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe and Jojoba all work together to treat, hydrate, condition, and nourish your lips. This is available in five other colors as well.Je Ne Sais Quoi™ Lip Treatment
  3. Je Ne Sais Quoi™ Lip Treatment ($24):  The original and still one of my favorites, this clear balm interacts with your body chemistry and morphs into the perfect pink flush for your complexion. It’s the mood ring of lip treatments! A blend of essential butters and oils, hyaluronic filling spheres and antioxidants smooth the look of lip lines and give you soft, kissable lips every time.Blurred Lines™ Smooth-Fill Lipstick Blurred Lines™ Smooth-Fill Lipstick
  4. Blurred Lines™ Smooth-Fill Lipstick ($24):  Who can resist a lipstick that color-corrects, revives, and fights aging? This is a truly gorgeous lip smoothing lipstick with terrific ingredients like Collagen, Peptides, Hyaluronic Filling Spheres, Shea Butter, Jojoba and Grape Seed Extract. Blurred Lines Smooth-Fill is available in 9 other colors, with Je Ne Sais Quoi the latest in the collection. Je Ne Sais Quoi is brighter in this incarnation than it is in others and is a truly perfect medium pink.Vitality Lip Flush Hydrating Lip Gloss Soft Stain
  5. Vitality Lip Flush Hydrating Lip Gloss Soft Stain ($24):  Perhaps your perfect pink is this non-sticky lip gloss that has a great wear time. The Je Ne Sais Quoi shade is a soft, milky pink that gives a light stain of color with lots of shine and slip. There are three shades that are 50% the stain amount of their original stains, which means a more natural flush of color. I adore how this feels on my lips – massively hydrating with the best slip ever.

Gift yourself with IT Cosmetic’s Je Ne Sais Quoi palette #itcosmetics

IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi palette

IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi palette

While I am entranced with IT Cosmetics year round, when it comes to the holidays I find that they go all out. Whether you are gifting others or yourself their new Je Ne Sais Quoi palette should be at the top of your list. I’m sure you’ve been nice (with maybe a little naughty thrown in) so you deserve this in your life.                                                       press sample

Everything about this palette is perfection, as a matter of fact it’s subtitled “Your Complexion Perfection”. For $42 you’ll be charmed by the Award-Winning Face Palette with Perfect Lighting Technology”.

A few days ago Lisa and I showed you the fabulous holiday brush sets that Ulta carries from IT Cosmetics. The set I have, City Chic, is the perfect companion for this palette. They are both a beautiful rose gold and the face brushes work wonderfully with the palette.

The 4 talc free powders in the compact are all new except for the translucent pressed powder. You’ll have a perfect travel palette with this as well as one that you’ll use daily at home. The palette is bigger than I expected at 4.5″ square. The colors are each 1..75″ square so getting a brush in is easy and won’t run over into the next color.

Bye Bye Pores Blush in Je Ne Said Quoi is a beautiful brightening shade. One that applies like a dream. If you like intensity it builds up easily or you can use a light touch with your dual fiber blush brush to start light. I could easily wear this blush every day.

Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder in Translucent is one of the best translucent powders you can wear. I bought this powder as soon as it came out. This sheer powder is great as a finishing powder to set your foundation. It’s one of IT’s most popular products so having it in this palette is a bonus. Have pores? Want to make them disappear? Then you want this powder.

Sunshine in a Compact Bronzer in Warmth is perfect if you are missing your summer color. You can use it as you would a bronzer or contour with it. Both ways work perfectly.

Perfect Lighting Luminizer is the hero product for me in this palette. I am always fascinated with highlighters and this one stands out to me. It’s a soft peachy beige powder that’s luminous but has no glitter. When you are my age you just don’t need glitter on your face. This special luminizer highlights and enhances. I’m sure I’ll end up seeing pan on this shade first.
