Today only!! IT Cosmetics QVC TSV – get yours while you can! #ITsAllAboutYourFavorites

One line we always stock up on at Beauty Info Zone is IT Cosmetics – the skin care and the color products are really fantastic, and QVC has some tremendous specials with their Today’s Special Values.  Guess what?  Today is one of those awesome days, so get ready to stock up!


The TSV for today, Saturday March 10th, 2018, is called the IT Cosmetics’ IT’s All About You! Customer Favorites Collection.  The emphasis is on bringing your most beautiful self forward with the look of light and color.  The TSV® starts at midnight on QVC® Saturday, March 10th, 2018 (EST) and lasts for 24 hours.

This collection has four items:  a supersized CC+ Illumination with SPF 50+, a perfectly paired Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting brush, the beautiful Bye Bye Pores Blush in a new Sweet Cheeks, and the beautiful Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Serum.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream

CC+ Illumination CC Cream has been a favorite of mine forever.  This is an all-in-one product since it contains anti-aging serum, a moisturizing day cream, skin-perfecting primer, skin-brightening serum, color corrector, full coverage, SPF 50+ broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection – all this in a supersize 2.53 fl oz size. The normal size, 1.08 fl oz, is left behind in the dust with this supersize one.

Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush

Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting brush I love many things from IT Cosmetics, and there is no doubt that their brushes are always a standout.  The Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting Brush is a cruelty free brush with a custom cut brush head. The application of the CC+ Cream with this brush is definitely heavenly. The soft brush hugs the natural contours of your face. This brush gives me an airbrushed finish. To have this along with the IT Cosmetics Supersize CC+ Illumination Cream is perfection. You’ll use this brush over and over and over.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blush in Sweet Cheeks

Let’s get real – large pores are no fun. I’m always looking for ways to make them disappear from my t-zone. There are lots of products that seem to be that miracle product, but ten minutes later there are those pores again, seemingly bigger than ever. IT Cosmetics is making me a very happy girl these days, however – actually a very happy girl with very smaller looking pores – thanks to Bye Bye Pores Blush. Some blushes seem to settle right into pores and make them look like huge craters – ugh, you know what I mean. This pressed powder does the opposite, leaving skin looking practically poreless thanks to Optical Blurring Technology and anti-aging silk, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants and peptides. Sweet Cheeks is a very pretty peachy/gold/pink that I’m not surprised has become a customer favorite.

Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Serum

Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Serum

Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Serum

Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Serum

Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Serum is new to me – I’ve used and loved many IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi lip products over the years, but this serum is the new product in the collection.  It has the same color changing quality as the other Je Ne Sais Quoi lippies, and the serum is deeply hydrating.  I love the applicator and the delivery system for the lip serum.  It’s quickly become my favorite!

The  IT Cosmetics’ IT’s All About You! Customer Favorites Collection is only sold today, so get this four-piece collection while it lasts.    Bringing your most beautiful self forward with the look of light and color with this terrific TSV®! – Lisa

This awesome set has five must-have items from IT Cosmetics, including three skin care products, a foundation, and a foundation brush.  

I love the Confidence in a Cleanser and have gone through at least three giant tubes. The first time I used this, I was concerned that a cleanser/serum wouldn’t completely cleanse all of my makeup since I tend to use full coverage products. If I don’t fully cleanse my skin I get some mean breakouts. I also thought it might be too heavy for my t-zone slightly oily skin. However, I was pleasantly surprised – this is very effective cleanser that definitely does the complete cleansing job. There isn’t a ton of lather since the cleanser is sulfate and soap-free, but you do get enough to feel that emotional satisfaction for cleaning that I find is helpful on some strange level. The serum portion includes collagen and hyaluronic acid, which leaves skin nicely hydrated and plumped up right after cleansing. This means there isn’t that tight, cleansed feeling – instead, skin is soft and youthful looking, which I definitely prefer!

Another favorite is the Confidence in an Eye Cream, which I have used for over a year now. Caffeine is a great ingredient for an eye cream because it reduces puffiness and makes eyes look younger and more awake. IT Confidence in an Eye Cream gives me immediate results, and over time the anti-aging ingredients make a real difference. Just check out everything this lovely eye cream does for you:

  • Formulated with proprietary Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate™, plus Ceramides to restore, Chrysin to help reduce the appearance of inflammation, Peptides and Collagen to smooth the look of lines and wrinkles, Avocado to nourish, Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane for powerful hydration, Licorice for visible brightening and Caffeine to reduce the look of puffiness.
  • Transforms your eyes with clinically shown hydration—perfect for all skin types!
  • Rejuvenates and restores delicate eye area, while the exclusive apricot tint and Drops of Light Technology™ color-correct and brighten
  • Collagen and hyaluronic acid plump skin and fill lines instantly

Confidence 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.

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
  • Light: if you have a bit more warmth to your skin
  • Medium: light to medium skin tones
  • Medium Tan: if you have a warm or golden-medium skin tone
  • Tan: tan skin tones
  • Rich: tan to rich skin with golden tones
  • Deep: rich to deep skin with a warmer tones

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. To buff it in, I use one of my favorite brushes from IT Cosmetics and the fifth item in this one day only TSV – the Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush.

Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin 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.

Sold separately, these items would set you back $200.  The IT Cosmetics’ New Year, New Confidence in Your Skin! 5-Piece Collection Today’s Special Value®TSV is going for under $80, so get it while you can!  It’s a new year, so why not buy some new products and get new confidence in your skin??  Happy shopping!  – Lisa


Put some POW! into New Years EVE with IT Cosmetics!

What to wear for New Years Eve…take a quick trip to Ulta and spend those gift cards that Santa gave you on some IT Cosmetics and you’ll have all the cosmetics you’ll need for superhero-worthy beauty that lasts all night. Of course, you’ll want to pick up my ultimate favorite concealer – I can’t believe it has even surpassed my precious favorite, Bye Bye Undereye (which is still freaking fantastic). I think I love this one even better now that I’m older and my skin is a little dryer, the Bye Bye Undereye Concealing Pot is slightly creamier and man is it good.

samples affiliates Next, use the CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream – no need for any primer – and you have the perfect base for everything else.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream

For cheeks, I adore the Bye Bye Pores Blush in Sweet Cheeks, which makes pores disappear. Some blushes seem to settle right into pores and make them look like huge craters – ugh, you know what I mean. This pressed powder does the opposite, leaving skin looking practically poreless thanks to Optical Blurring Technology and anti-aging silk, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants and peptides. Sweet Cheeks is such pretty peachy/gold/pink.

Now, let’s talk EYES.  No one does eyes like IT Cosmetics! Their Superhero Palette is, in my humble opinion, outstanding. It’s divided into three sections – one section with very subtle, nude shades, one with what they call neutral shades but they do have more oomph, and one that has lots of drama and can be used as liners. All sections have a lovely buttery texture with lots of pigment and fantastic lasting power.  Marcia did an excellent review of the shades HERE which I won’t repeat, but here are some pics for you:

Nudes Eye Base

Nudes swatched

The Nudes shades are indeed subtle, and give a very natural but finished look. You can wear them by themselves or else combine them with other colors in the palette.

IT Cosmetics Eye Foundation Neutral

Neutral Eyeshadows

Neutral Eyeshadow swatches

The Neutrals are beautiful shades are a little more than neutral, really – I think they pack a punch. I love them – particularly the golden shade that plays well with my hazel eyes. Beautiful!

IT Cosmetics Liners Eye Foundation


Liner swatches

The Liners shades are beautiful. You can use them wet or dry. They are fantastic accents for the crease as well.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush

The perfect brush, by the way, for this amazing palette is the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush ($29). This is an amazing brush totally worthy of its name!! Goodness knows I love a multi-tasker, and this takes multi-tasking to a new extreme.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush Liner side

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush All Over Brush

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush Crease brush

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Superhero Brush Smudger brush

One side is the liner brush, and the other side slides to become three different brushes – an all-over shadow brush, a crease brush, and a smudge brush. This is the perfect travel brush.

IT Cosmetics Superhero Liner

IT Cosmetics Superhero Eyeliner swatch

Of course, you also need a superhero worthy eyeliner and IT Cosmetics has that too – the Superhero Liner ($24). This is one of the easiest liquid eyeliners I have ever used. It goes on with the ease of a marker but it still has the power of a liquid liner. It also really lasts without peeling or chipping. The brush is like a felt tip brush and it keeps its quality without fraying or bending.

IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara wand

Superhero Mascara ($24) finishes out your look with super thick, super long, super black lashes. I love this mascara. It has something called Proprietary Elastic Stretch Technology that I can’t even pretend to understand, but somehow it wraps each lash in a ‘black cape of power and color’ which sounds pretty darn cool. Whatever it does, it makes my lashes look fantastic, which is good enough for me!!

Valencia Key Shero Earrings

Now that your face looks AH-MAZING, why not accent it with this fabulous Valencia Key earrings? Valencia Key Earrings are for Dreamers, Believers, and Achievers.  Check them out at  Not only are these earring gorgeous, they come with this message:

Valencia Key Shero Earrings

You are courageous!  You are inspiring! You are extraordinary!  On your journey to achieve your dreams and live your life’s purpose, wear these beautiful VALENCIA KEY Shero Earrings, infused with sunshine, joy and love.  Shine bright in life!  Sending you lots of love and light!

And that, dear reader, is my holiday wish for you. Have fun shopping, shine bright, and always remember – you are extraordinary.  – Lisa

Favorite Worth the Hype Beauty

Makeup Wars picked a topic that a lot of us are having trouble with so not as many bloggers participated. What are the hyped products that you’re interested in? It’s so different for us all because of where our interests lie. Are you a skincare junkie? Do you crave eyeshadows? Are lipsticks your thing? And if you do pick lipstick what formula? See what I mean? I’ve chosen a few items that I think are worth the hype. I wonder if you agree.

Makeup Wars favorite hyped products

Eyeshadows are my jam. I’d rather buy eyeshadows than anything ever. As you can see by my newest “hyped” choices I like the same colors over and over and I’m really into satin and metallic shades. All 4 of these palettes were bought in the last month. Now I have to stop myself!!

Eyeshadow palettes from Marc Jacobs, Urban Decay, ColourPop, Huda Beauty

URBAN DECAY HEAVY METALS and Urban Decay Distortion palettes are the two that have been on the tongues and minds of most beauty bloggers. I said no to both of these……….. but then I caved for Heavy Metals. It has its negatives but the colors are so pretty and the formula is excellent. I seriously thought about Distortion but I have the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette so I have talked myself down and used that instead with my darker eyeshadows.

Urban Decay Heavy Metals Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette

The nice thing about UD’s Heavy Metals is that I still get all my neutrals but then I have brights that I may or may not use too often. The only negative about the palette is the size and configuration. I don’t have a drawer big enough for it at the moment.

HUDA BEAUTY has definitely been among the most hyped brands and I wanted in. At only $27 the small Obsessions eyeshadow palettes were an easy pick. Only Smokey Obsessions had colors that I knew would look good on me even though I was tempted by Warm Brown and Mauve.

Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions eyeshadow palette

Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions—Master the ultimate smoky eye or staple nude look with this range of four mattes and five metallic shimmers—including an intense black, warm shades of dark brown, champagne, gold, and silver.

Even though it’s not the most sturdy palette I love the size and will most likely take it on my long trip. The textures are divine.

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY already takes up a lot of real estate on my vanity but I was so tempted by their new formula and had to buy an Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette. I know I didn’t need it but I couldn’t help myself. It was a necessity that I try the new formula. Don’t you agree? (Please say yes). Of course I stuck with the most traditional one and bought Glambition with its nudes and bronzes. Marc Jacobs isn’t as hyped as it used to be when it was new but it’s a brand that should get a little more attention.

Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic palette in Glambition

COLOURPOP is hyped to the sky and back. You can’t beat their prices and you can’t beat the amount of products that they have. I’ve bought a lot of ColourPop and when Sephora started carrying it I was back looking for it again. My choice this time was the Semi Precious Shadow Palette ($26). I wanted to try their pressed shadows and this has some lighter shades I wanted. I know I won’t use them all since red/cranberry and my eyes don’t go together but the lavender and greenish gold are fabulous.

ColourPop Semi-Precious pressed eyeshadow palette

The one lipstick brand of all the ones being talked about lately that has tempted me is PAT MCGRATH. She has two formulas out but LuxeTrance is the one I wanted since it’s a cream formula and not a matte. The pictures on Sephora aren’t representative of the shades at all but through research I narrowed it down to Sextrology described as a neutral pink. It’s not a light pink but it’s not dark either. It feels good on my lips which is uber important and there’s no fragrance! Go Pat. There 25 shades in LuxeTrance and 9 in MatteTrance. This is the first Pat McGrath that I’ve felt deserved the hype. And the package wasn’t filled with sequins that get all over the place.

Now onto skincare. When Lisa and I started this blog she was the one that emphasized skincare. I used a limited selection but that’s changed dramatically and now I’m the one emphasizing it along with her. I have 3 items from IT COSMETICS that I use daily. Two are new so there’s more hype about them and one is a staple that I’ve purchased 4 times after receiving my first one.

IT Cosmetics Miracle Water, Secret Sauce, Bye Bye Serum

IT COSMETICS BYE BYE LINES SERUM Advanced Anti-Aging Wrinkle-Smoothing Miracle Concentrate is my absolute favorite serum ever. I love serums and consider them to be a vital part of my regimen. Bye Bye Lines Serum is great for me day and night. It never interferes with cosmetics. It smell delicious with a hint of orange. It fills in fine lines. I always go back to it if I’m testing other brands.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Serum

This revolutionary, antiaging miracle concentrate was developed with plastic surgeons to deliver 10 powerful clinical results to your skin in as little as 10 days. Infused with proprietary Drops of Light Optical Blurring Technology™ and skin-loving ingredients—including peptides, caviar extract, hydrolyzed collagen and algae—the weightless wonder serum visibly erases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the look of tone, texture, firmness, suppleness, and elasticity. It also supports the natural skin barrier, hydrates, and gives skin a look of youthful vitality and radiance.

IT COSMETICS SECRET SAUCE Clinically Advanced Miraculous Anti-Aging Moisturizer is a new product from IT that I’m loving. While I’ve only been using it for about 3-4 weeks it’s one that I’ll purchase when the time comes. At Sephora right now you can use the code ITSECRET to get 10 free samples of this with your Sephora purchase. I’m going to do that to take traveling with me.

IT Cosmetics Secret Sauce

The skin-loving, powerfully potent secret lies in the Secret Sauce fermented complex: seven clinically advanced, penetration-enhancing fermented ingredients that work to increase absorbency and maximize the anti-aging benefits. It features anti-aging collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and licorice root to reduce discoloration, lines, and wrinkles. Combined with proprietary Drops of Light Technology™ concentrate and diamond powder, the revolutionary formula delivers a youthful-looking, lit-from-within glow.

This adds a slight glow to my well moisturized skin. There’s a reason that IT brought this out and why so many bloggers are recommending it – it works and it’s wonderful!

IT COSMETICS MIRACLE WATER 3-in-1 Glow Tonic is a Micellar Water unlike any that you’ve tried before. While this cleanses like a typical Micellar Water it also maximizes the efficacy of your other skincare. It contains the Secret Sauce fermented complex so you are getting more than just the benefits of a micellar product. I personally don’t use this on my eyes but I use it at least once a day on my face and will purchase it again.

IT Cosmetics Miracle Water

Now that you’ve seen some hypes what do you think? Do you have more items to add? I know that Fenty Beauty is the most hyped at the moment but I can’t comment on it since I haven’t seen a product that I feel would work for me. What’s your favorite hyped product?  —  Marcia

More IT Cosmetics Holiday Brush Sets to make holiday shopping so easy!

IT Cosmetics Holiday Brush Sets

Earlier this week, Marcia told you about two fabulous IT Cosmetics LE holiday brush sets,  ALL THAT SHIMMERS and HEAVENLY LUXE BRUSH SET . Today I have three more options for you – two more travel sets, plus one that isn’t specifically a travel set but it does come in a lovely sparkly bag.

IT Cosmetics Your Beautiful Basics Airbrush 101 Travel LE Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Your Beautiful Basics Airbrush 101 Travel LE Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Your Beautiful Basics Airbrush 101 Travel LE Brush Set

The first is a terrific basic travel set, the Your Beautiful Basics Airbrush 101 Travel LE Brush Set ($38). This set is exclusive to Ulta.  It’s a great basic set with three essential brushes. The zippered pouch is a shiny black patent leather with a cute bow and inside has a pouch on one side and separate storage for each brush on the other side with a cover for the brush heads.

IT Cosmetics Your Beautiful Basics Airbrush 101 Travel LE Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Your Beautiful Basics Airbrush 101 Travel LE Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Your Beautiful Basics Airbrush 101 Travel LE Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Your Beautiful Basics Airbrush 101 Travel LE Brush Set

  • Airbrush Powder Brush: Medium, fluffy, dome-shaped brush picks up and applies the perfect amount of your loose and pressed powders, blushes and bronzers.
  • Airbrush Shadow Brush: Small, rounded brush for even application of your cream and powder eyeshadows.
  • Airbrush Blush Brush: Dense, angled brush hugs the curves of your cheeks for precision application of your cream and powder blushes.
  • Luxe Brush Case: Sleek, patent-leather design stores your brushes in style at home – and on the go!

The brushes are called ‘travel size’, but they look full size to me. They are wonderfully soft, yet firm enough to pick up product and get the job done. I like the Airbrush Powder Brush best – it’s amazing for loose powder. Considering this set is an $86 value, I think it’s a wonderful gift for anyone. These are great foundational brushes that will be welcome in any collection!

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe 6 Piece Travel Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe 6 Piece Travel Brush Set

The second is another travel set – this one comes in a gorgeous silver gift wrapping with a gift tag that says, “Because of you, the world is more beautiful!” Inside is the fabulous Heavenly Luxe 6 Pc Travel Brush Set ($50) available at IT Cosmetics. This set has six brushes – two face brushes and four eye brushes – in a convenient black quilted case. The case is awesome – it protects the brushes and actually flips into a vanity stand. Again, the brushes are called ‘travel sized’ but these aren’t those small, poor quality brushes like MAC puts out – these are full size, full quality brushes with crystal tipped handles.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe 6 Piece Travel Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe 6 Piece Travel Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe 6 Piece Travel Brush Set

  • Must-Have Foundation Brush (5.85 in.): Flat, tapered paddle brush buffs and blends your favorite liquid and cream foundations.
  • Must-Have Concealer Brush (5.75 in.): Small brush with firm, tapered hairs precisely applies your favorite liquid and cream concealers onto targeted areas.
  • No-Tug™ Crease Brush (5.75 in.): Narrow, tapered brush fits perfectly in the crease of your eye for effortless application of your favorite cream and powder shadows.

  • Must-Have Multi-Powder Brush (6 in.): Luxuriously soft, dome-shaped brush picks up and applies the perfect amount of your favorite powders, blushes and bronzers onto larger areas of your face.
  • No-Tug™ All-Over Eyeshadow Brush (5.75 in.): Densely packed brush provides a smooth application of your favorite cream and powder eyeshadows without tugging on your delicate eyelid area.
  • No-Tug™ Eyeliner & Brow Brush (4.75 in.): Dual-ended brush applies your favorite cream and gel eyeliners and brow products for gorgeous, eye-defining results.
  • Travel Case: Sleek quilted faux-leather design carries your brushes in style—plus, it flips into a brush stand so you can easily access your favorite tools!

The only brush I wasn’t sure about was the All-Over Eyeshadow Brush – I just didn’t think I would get that much use from it. However, I am always running late in the morning so I often end up doing a wash of a neutral color and this brush is perfect for it. It’s firm enough to grab just enough eyeshadow and, true to its name, it deposits the eyeshadow beautifully without tugging or uneven spots. It makes hurried application super easy. I think this just might be my favorite set of the three and it’s certainly an excellent travel brush set to have.

IT Cosmetics Chic in the City Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Chic in the City Brush Set

The third brush set, Chic in the City ($68), available at Ulta, is a beautifully feminine set that is a whopper of a value – sold separately this would set you back $150. Check out that gorgeous sparkling pink bag with the deluxe soft and fluffy removable pom-pom keychain!  This LE 5 piece brush set has powder, foundation, blush, eyeshadow and liner/brow brushes with shimmering ombré rose-gold handles. This is the gift for the girly girl on your list.

IT Cosmetics Chic in the City Brush Set

  • Chic Powder Brush: Large, soft, and rounded brush delivers your most flawless powder application.
  • Chic Blush Brush: Ultra-dense, angled brush hugs the curves of your cheeks for precision application of cream and powder blushes.
  • Chic Foundation Brush: Dome-shaped brush gives controlled application of liquid and cream foundations.
  • Chic Eyeshadow Brush: Small, rounded brush effortlessly blends eyeshadow onto your lids.
  • Chic Liner/Brow Brush: Firm, angled brush precisely applies your eyeliner and brow products.
  • Chic Rose Gold Case: Fashionably chic case comes with a removable pom-pom keychain and doubles as your night-out clutch.

This is a truly luxurious set of brushes – super high quality, gorgeous handles, fabulous brush heads, and I love the clutch! Chic in the City is a major winner. This is a one for you, one for me – you will definitely want to get one for yourself before it sells out!

Every year I look forward to the limited edition holiday brush sets from IT Cosmetics, and this year they have done “IT” again with fantastic quality and excellent prices. They are all great gift ideas for teachers, mothers-in-law, daughters, nieces, girlfriends, and of course – yourself!  Happy shopping!! – Lisa

IT Cosmetics holiday brush sets make holiday shopping a breeze

In my world there’s nothing more exciting than cosmetic brushes. I am a brush fanatic and there’s always room for more. I use different brushes all the time and love to switch around the ones on my vanity. I’ve also found that a set of brushes fits every woman just right. No guessing about size or favorite colors. No worrying that it’s not her style. Brushes are always in style and IT COSMETICS makes some of the best sets around. Today I have two of 4 sets that are available and Lisa will share the other 2 soon.

samplesaffiliate links

The two I have are perfect for my world. I keep my brushes in cups so that I can see them easily and know what to grab for. ALL THAT SHIMMERS has a cup I’m in love with along with 5 of their perfect brushes that fit in it perfectly. These 5 Must Have Luxe Skin Loving Brushes make up a set that will add sparkle to your life and sparkle to your giftees eyes when they open these up.

IT Cosmetics All That Shimmers, cup and brushes

The kit is exclusive to ULTA with brushes to make your life a breeze. The brushes are all full size with silver ombré handles and a matching brush holder. Open it to find powder, foundation, eyeshadow, crease, and smudger brushes with that oh so soft Heavenly Luxe cruelty free hair.

My favorite brush in All That Shimmers is the Brilliant Powder Brush. This is so useful for me and I use it to blend everything on my face. I can gently dust powder on as well as blend blushes with ease.

IT Cosmetics All That Shimmers Brilliant Powder and Radiant Foundation

The Radiant Foundation brush gives an airbrushed finish. It’s so soft and doesn’t force your foundation to go on, it just subtly reminds the product to look its best. (Yes my brushes have personalities!)

IT Cosmetics All That Shimmers Stunning Eyeshadow, Dazzling Crease, Luminous Smudger

Stunning Eyeshadow Brush is one that I like for all over the eye since it’s on the large side. It’s wonderful for blending when you are done so that your colors mesh perfectly.

Dazzling Crease is next and gently applies color in the crease area. Since the cruelty free hair is so soft it doesn’t apply shadows in a blob. I like it to diffuse cream shadows so that they look even on my lids.

The fifth brush is the Luminous Smudger, a great brush for around your lash lines. Apply the color directly with the brush and then smudge to soften the look. Use it too for a sharp crease color that you want to stand out. I’m especially happy to have this brush in the collection since it’s unique to me.

IT Cosmetics All That Shimmers

With ALL THAT SHIMMERS you’ve got a hit on your hands. This is available only at ULTA.

IT COSMETICS’ LIMITED EDITION HEAVENLY LUXE BRUSH SET is exclusive to QVC and is available on Easy Pay. This is for the woman in your life who travels or doesn’t have a place to safely keep brushes clean. I know many cat owners who have to hide their brushes so that they can’t become kitty toys!

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Brush Set

There are 4 brushes but actually 5 since one is double ended. There’s a little crossover so you may not want both yourself (unless you are like me and there’s never enough). These are all Heavenly Luxe brushes that have that unbelievable softness that we’ve come to expect from IT Cosmetics.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Brush Set

The French Boutique Blush Brush has been custom cut and works by hugging the apples of your cheeks. They recommend smiling so you can see where to sweep the blush. Then finish by sweeping up to your temples without adding more color.

French Boutique Blush Brush

My favorite brush is the Dual-Ended Concealer Brush. It’s particularly good for travel since the ends are covered. One side is fluffy and that’s the side I like for under my eyes since it helps to diffuse my concealer. The other flat side is great for larger areas or problems of concern where you need a heavier layer. It also doubles as a dual sided eyeshadow brush since both ends work easily with shadows.

The Buffing Brush is a flat top brush that works especially good with powder foundation. Work in circular motions and soon your skin can look softly focused and naturally flawless.

The last brush is the Wand Ball Brush and is a great powder brush. I also use this brush after I’m done to make sure everything on my face looks finished without any harsh lines. It’s great for blending so you don’t end up looking like a scary star caught in the lights.

Buffing Brush and Wand Ball Brush

The Brush Roll itself makes this a very handy set to own. Not only do these brushes fit in perfectly but there are slots for more brushes with 8 small loops and 4 larger ones to hold the brushes in place.

IT Cosmetics Heaveny Luxe Brush Set

Both of these sets are great deals and will bring you years of use. Add these to your wishlist or your shopping cart – you won’t regret it.  —  Marcia
