We’re back again, side by side, to tell you of the latest and greatest from IT Cosmetics. It’s true that we get sent these items often and it’s true that we rave about them constantly. But that’s because we truly love this line. When the two of us get together and talk cosmetics, of course, we are constantly talking about how wonderful the products from IT Cosmetics are. Today’s wonderful raves are for the IT Cosmetics Vitality Flush Reviver Color Stain Stick Duo. This duo is a QVC exclusive for now. The number is A234861 and the price is $29 for these.
These are totally versatile since they are a cream blush, cheek stain, lip balm, lip stain and lip gloss. However you want to use these is perfectly fine. You are getting hydration from anti-aging formulas that IT Cosmetics always use in their products. The two shades are Je Ne Sais Quoi, a sheer pink flush and Rose Flush, a sheer rose flush. Je Ne Sais Quoi is the original and some of you may have it from a wonderful TSV once offered; Rose Flush is the new addition.
The one thing to remember with these is that they are activated by your skin’s chemistry so it’s a “your mileage may vary” situation. Off to the reviews!!
I’ve owned the Vitality Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi for a while so when these arrived I
begged asked Lisa if I could review the newer one, Rose Flush. I’m really glad I did since it’s a great shade for me. The above picture shows Rose Flush to be warmer than Je Ne Sais Quoi but it doesn’t appear that way on my skin. It turns into a very cool pink once I apply it.
You can see in my photos above that the tube shade looks like a warm shade but look at my swatches below:
This is exactly how it shows up on my cheeks. It’s a beautiful cherry shade on me. As some of you know, I’m a big fan of cream blush and that’s how I prefer to use this. I have to use just a small amount though because it develops into a deeper shade once it’s on. It was hard at first for me to gauge how much to apply but I’ve learned that less is best. I can always apply more. I find it so easy to use since I apply it directly from the tube onto the apples of my cheek and then use my finger to blend. Because it originally has a tacky feel to it, I let it settle in and then use my IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores powder over it to set. I have color for the entire day this way. This smells like cherries for about the amount of time it takes to dry down for me.
I remember back in the ’80’s I had a blue lipstick. Guys would gawk when I twisted that lippie up and watch with amazement as I applied it and my lips turned….dark pink. It was a great party trick – like a mood ring for lips! Ah, back in the bar-going days….I also could take a cherry stem, pop it in my mouth, and pull it out tied in a perfect knot. I’m not sure why, but that blue lipstick and my cherry stem trick got me all kinds of free drinks and offers for dates!
Remembering my wild blue lippie days, I was more than happy to try the Je Ne Sais Quoi Vitality Flush. It’s like a magic trick on a stick and it makes me giggle every time I use it.
In the tube, Je Ne Sais Quoi looks like it will apply clear. But it magically turns into a light cool pink when first applied…
…and after ten minutes it becomes a deeper cool pink. I love this cool shade on my neutral skin. I usually don’t do well with cream blushes because I have an oily t-zone, but while this goes on rather wet, it dries down beautifully and has great lasting power.
I apply it right from the tube, then buff with a brush that has a flat synthetic brush head to get proper placement. It gives lots of play time before drying down, so I really enjoy this blush – my magic trick on a stick!
This truly innovative formula contains IT Cosmetics Hydra-Luxe Technology, which includes ingredients such as plum oil, cherry oil, shea butter, aloe, and jojoba that all work together to help hydrate, condition, and nourish your lips and cheeks. Plus, Vitality Flush Anti-Aging Color Reviver Stain is packed with antiaging antioxidants.
Buy the set for you or to share with a pal. Just imagine the joy on a makeup lover’s face if they found this in their stocking or in a small gift bag. It Cosmetics comes through again with interesting new products that are anti-aging as well as beautiful.
