IT Cosmetics QVC TSV for November 2017 “It’s Your Top 5 Superstars & More”

Old favorite 1: CC+ Cream with SPF 50+

You always read about me praising this CC+ Cream because it’s a staple in my cosmetic wardrobe. Available in 7 shades it has full coverage, contains anti-aging skincare and SPF50+ broad spectrum sunscreen. Applied with the new Heavenly Luxe Brush in the kit makes it even better!!

Old favorite 2:  Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

Not only does this condition but it is an amazing volume mascara. It’s infused with a unique technology called Elastic Stretch. It gives me lashes that go on and on. Plus I’ve never had smudging or flaking with it.

Old favorite 3:  Bye Bye Pores Illumination

This powder gives an airbrushed look to skin with some illumination. It doesn’t have glimmer or shimmer but it does have radiance. With the included brush it applies lightly, evenly, and dreamily.

IT Cosmetics QVC TSV for November 2017 “It’s Your Top 5 Superstars & More”

Old favorite 4: Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment

Je Ne Sais Quoi is a trademark name for many of the lip products from IT Cosmetics. What you’ll receive in this TSV is a rose shade that enhances your lips lightly while nourishing them with essential butters and oils, hyaluronic filling spheres and antioxidants. Wow!

Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment

Old favorite 5:  Brow Power, Universal Brow Pencil

This has been a top seller for IT since the very beginning of their company. It’s smudge-proof, doesn’t need to be sharpened, and adheres for long lasting wear. With a spooly on one end it’s an all-in-one tool.

NEW favorite: Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Foundation Globe Brush

This is the perfect brush for all your facial needs. It is ultra plush and the softest brush ever yet it does miraculous things for your cosmetic needs. It’s game changing with the CC+ Cream and applies Bye Bye Pores Illumination so finely that you won’t notice that you’ve powdered until you see how flawless your skin looks.

What are Miracle Water and Secret Sauce? They’re IT Cosmetics newest recipe for wonderful skin

IT Cosmetics has had a stellar 2017 and we’re so excited to be a part of it. This is a brand that is universally loved by customers and you can count me as one of their biggest fans. I’m thrilled to introduce you to their two newest skincare products but more thrilled that I have incorporated them into my daily routine.

Their recipe for success includes the new Miracle Water and Secret Sauce. So let’s learn about them and why I’m thrilled.

IT Cosmetics Miracle Water

MIRACLE WATER is a 3-in-1 Glow Tonic that you are going to want AND need.

  • Skin brightening Radiance Booster
  • Skin softening Micellar Cleanser
  • Anti-aging Treatment Essence

IT Cosmetics Miracle Water

I’m a huge fan of Micellar Water and having this improved version is amazing. It’s like having 3 products yet I’m only using one. Miracle Water is used in the typical way by applying it to a cotton pad and then swiping it on your face to remove cosmetics, skincare, and the day’s pollution.

But it’s not just for cleansing since it also brightens and hydrates your skin. It contains Drops of Light Technology Concentrate used in other IT Cosmetics products, as well as diamond powder, vitamin C and licorice root for youthful-looking lit from within skin.

It Cosmetics Miracle Water

It’s aptly named since this does seem to be magical. The Secret Sauce Fermented Complex deeply absorbs so that you’ll start seeing anti-aging results with this. To top it off, it’s unscented so I love it even more. The bottle is a hard plastic that looks beautiful on my vanity. It’s not squeezable so I’m not wasting product by squeezing out too much. I’m using it 1 to 2 times a day and seeing more hydration and clearer brighter skin.

IT Cosmetics Secret Sauce

The next step in the recipe is IT Cosmetics Secret Sauce, a moisturizer that is fabulous for dry skin. It’s rich and feels heavenly on skin. But it’s not so rich that it clogs pore. It absorbs beautifully.

IT Cosmetics Secret Sauce

Here’s what IT Cosmetics wants us to know:

  • Secret Sauce is a luxurious, clinically advanced moisturizer that instantly hydrates to transform your skin.
  • It contains Secret Sauce Fermented Complex which deeply absorbs.
  • There’s also Drops of Light Technology Concentrate, vitamin C and licorice root to deliver that youthful glow.
  • Secret Sauce contains collagen, peptides and hyaluronic acid.

Are you at all surprised that I love this fragrance free moisturizer??

IT Cosmetics Secret Sauce

I know it’s easy to dismiss products that bloggers receive to review but this isn’t a product that gets the hype because of that. These products get hyped because they are THAT good! The combination of Miracle Water and Secret Sauce makes them even better. It’s not necessary to use them both but it sure makes the recipe rich and delicious.  —  Marcia

IT Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream (and my before and after selfie #ITCCchallenge)

IT Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream

IT Cosmetics is asking women to take the #ITCCchallenge – take a makeup-free selfie, then take one wearing just their CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream ($38) and post the before and afters on social media. For every before and after, IT Cosmetics will donate $1 to the Look Good Feel Better foundation which helps women with cancer! I am up for the challenge, how about you?

samples/affiliate links

I adore CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream – it’s one of my go-to foundations. Why? Well, there are seven great reasons why.

  1.  It’s a full coverage foundation, which is great for my uneven skin tone (on full display in my before pic).
  2.  Spf 50+ UVA/UVB broad-spectrum physical sunscreen
  3.  Brightening color corrector which makes my sallow skin tone look fabulous
  4.  Hydrating anti-aging serum…I mean, who doesn’t need that?
  5.  Poreless finish primer included making this a great multitasking product
  6.  Dark spot concealer which works great on my hyperpigmentation
  7.  It’s also a moisturizing day cream

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe™ Complexion Perfection Brush #7

I love the way it applies, especially with the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe™ Complexion Perfection Brush #7 ($48). This is an amazing brush! The smaller end is fantastic for applying concealer (love the Bye Bye Undereye Concealing Pot) and the large end buffs in the CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream so beautifully it’s incredible. The coverage is fantastic but it looks so natural and lightweight! And the formula is chock full of wonderful ingredients that skin just loves. “The hydrating formula is infused with peptides; niacin; algae; vitamins A, C, B, and E; hyaluronic acid; and hydrolyzed collagen, along with antioxidants and exotic botanicals for brightening and color-correcting benefits.” (from IT Cosmetics via qvc.com).

Plus, there are a terrific array of shades available, seven in all from Fair to Deep. One is bound to be your best match.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream

Now, taking a selfie with absolutely no makeup on is not an easy task. It takes a lot of guts to put yourself out there like that – I won’t even run to the grocery store without makeup, but if it’s going to help my fellow sister in need I am happy to do whatever it takes. So here I am – just woke up. My goodness, I hadn’t even brushed my hair yet.

IT Cosmetics makeup-free selfie

And here I am after applying IT Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream – nothing else, no concealer, no primer, obviously no lipstick or mascara! But you can certainly see the difference in my skin tone, radiance, and overall healthy appearance. It literally took me about two minutes to apply my foundation for this photo.

My selfie with just IT Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream

I did end up putting some concealer on because I was rocking some seriously puffy eyes that morning and I promise I did eventually brush my hair!!

Ok, now it’s your turn. Take the IT Cosmetics challenge! Post your own before and after selfies using CC+ Cream SPF 50+ to celebrate your most beautiful you and help IT Fighters and IT Survivors everywhere! To learn more, follow @itcosmetics and #ITCCchallenge.  – Lisa

IT Cosmetics Superhero™ cosmetics make my day

No surprise to find out that I’m a fan of IT Cosmetics, as a matter of fact I think every blogger I know is a fan of the brand. Cruelty-free, anti-aging, some fabulous buys, and innovative products make it a unique cosmetic company that I find so reliable.

IT Cosmetics Superhero: mascara, liquid eyeliner, Eye Transforming Super Palette

samplesaffiliate links

In the Superhero family there’s the wonderful Superhero mascara, Superhero eyeliner (a black liquid liner), and Superhero™ Eye Transforming Anti-Aging Super Palette. That mouthful is what we’re concentrating on today and that you’ll be wanting to add to your eye wardrobe.

IT Cosmetics Superhero Eye Transforming Anti-Aging Super Palette

IT Cosmetics Superhero Anti-Aging Super Palette (from itcosmetics.com)

In this delightful palette you’ll find 12 eyeshadows: a set of Superhero Nudes, a trio of Superhero Neutrals, a line up of Superhero Liners, and 3 eyeshadow base shades. Mix and match or use the shadows in their grouping for dozens of combinations.

What makes this so special is that Jamie created this palette with plastic surgeons. She aims for anti-aging products for us and these shadows are formulated with hydrolyzed collagen, silk, peptides and antioxidants, plus innovative Superhero Pigment Power Technology™. They are very long lasting, don’t fade away, aren’t powdery, and don’t have shimmer yet they stand out.

Superhero nudes

Confidence eyeshadow base and Nudes in Limitless, Powerful, and Aura

The Superhero™ Nudes contain a light tan, a peach cream and a bright/beautiful milk chocolate. These can be worn alone for a no makeup look or do what I do and combine them with the Neutrals. Confidence is one of the top Eyeshadow Bases and it has a very light peach undertone to it.

Superhero™ Neutrals

Pow! Eyeshadow Base and Superhero™ Neutrals in Unstoppable, Superstar, and Fearless

The Superhero™ Neutrals go beyond neutral in my opinion. These are the ones I’ve worn the most. They make great crease colors with any of the eyeshadow bases or with the lighter nudes. Unstoppable is a golden shade that I love on my lid. I think it brings out the gold in my brown eyes. No shimmer though so it’s not garish. Superstar is a taupe with a purple undertone.  Fearless is the brightest of the bunch since it’s a copper and is very pigmented. Pow! is the eyeshadow base above it in the palette and it’s a light creamy nude.

IT Superhero™ Liners

Magical Eyeshadow Base and Superhero™ Liners in Bold, Daring, and Superhero

The Superhero™ Liners are matte shades that have super pigment. These can be used as a contour shade easily or as an eyeliner. They can be used wet or dry. Bold is a beautiful blue that’s not quite navy, it’s more of a dark denim. Daring is brown but it has a little bit of red undertone making it not “boring brown”. And Superhero is a charcoal that’s almost black but not harsh in any way. Magical is the eyeshadow base above it that I like as a lid shade. I think it looks fabulous with Fearless in the neutral section.

IT Cosmetics Superhero Anti-Aging Super Palette

There’s a great brush that works well with this palette and other eyeshadows that is bundled with the palette on QVC. I was amazed to see the price together as $39.54 since the palette sells on Ulta and IT’s website for $42.

IT Cosmetics brush

The one I have isn’t exactly the same but very close. Mine is the Heavenly Luxe No Tug Dual Eyeshadow brush while QVC has a Superhero Dual Eyeshadow Brush. The brush has one end for lining and the other for sweeping color on your lids and for blending. Here’s what Ulta has to say about the Superhero brush:

“To experience your Superhero eyes, use the eyeshadow brush end to apply your all-over shadow. Slide up the brush base one click to buff in your crease shadow. For added definition, slide up the brush base another click and smudge shadow along your lower lash line. To finish, use the angled eyeliner brush end to effortlessly apply your liner.”

IT Cosmetics Superhero Eye Transforming Anti-Aging Super Palette

What a buy! And what a way to pamper your eyes with anti-aging ingredients to help you conquer the world with your Superhero powers.  —  Marcia
