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. The Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin-Perfecting Brush is a perfect tool to smooth on the CC Cream making it appear to be airbrushed. It hugs the curves of your face while you work with it in a circular motion. You’ll love this brush for all your foundations so it’s a winner all around.

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.

  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.

CELEBRATION FOUNDATION ILLUMINATION™ in your choice of 5 shades.

Celebration Foundation Illumination™ in Medium

Celebration Foundation Illumination™ in Medium

This powder foundation works quickly to give your skin a flawless look. It’s infused with Illuminating Drop of Light Technology™ and anti-aging ingredients. This is a wonderful hydrating formula and with the brush included in the set will give you amazing coverage in just 30 seconds. It can be built to full coverage and it has just a touch of illumination to give your skin some brightness.

BYE BYE UNDER EYE ANTI-AGING CONCEALER™:IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye

This is all you need to cover even the darkest under eye circles.

This is all you need to cover even the darkest under eye circles.

This too is available in 5 shades so once you pick your foundation shade you’ll receive the matching concealer shade. This is the original Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer that we’ve raved about endlessly on Beauty Info Zone. Bye Bye Under Eye is what started us on our love affair. You need a tiny drop of the concealer. The best recommendation we can give you is to place a drop on the back of your hand and rub it gently to warm it up. Then tap it gently under your eye or on other imperfections in your skin. Buff it in with your favorite IT brush and you’ll be set. You’re going to love the coverage.

BROW POWER™, UNIVERSAL BROW PENCIL

IT Cosmetics Brow Power

IT Cosmetics Brow Power

IT Cosmetics Brow Power

This wonderful eyebrow pencil is noted because of its charitable aspect as well as its ‘your brows but better’ formula. This universal pencil adjusts to all eyebrow shades by the amount of pressure you use. You can do short feathery strokes for lighter brows or build up to the darkness you need. Brow Power contains biotin, saw palmetto and antioxidants so it’s not just a wonderful tool to use but it is good for you.

SUPERHERO ELASTIC STRETCH VOLUMIZING MASCARA

IT COSMETICS Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

IT COSMETICS Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

Superhero MascaraIT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

IT Cosmetics has always made great mascara and the Superhero Mascara saves my lashes every time. It does everything that one would expect from a mascara called ‘Superhero’:  lengthens, volumizes, and separates. The Elastic Stretch Technology wraps around each lash and only gets darker, stronger, thicker, and longer with each coat. In fact, one coat gives lashes 500% more volume! That is a definite game changer.

THE HEAVENLY SKIN FULL-COVERAGE FOUNDATION BRUSH

NEW Heavenly Skin™ Full-Coverage Foundation Brush

NEW Heavenly Skin™ Full-Coverage Foundation Brush

How gorgeous is this brush???  The Heavenly Skin Foundation Brush is the new product in this collection of superstars and it is right at home amongst the best of the best. The super cool swirly brush head has a ‘blur factor’ thanks to the Heavenly Skin brush hair, and the custom cut swirls hug facial contours. The result is an airbrush finish that looks just beautiful.

JE NE SAIS QUOI HYDRATING COLOR AWAKENING LIP TREATMENT
Je Ne Sais Quoi™ Lip Treatment

Je Ne Sais Quoi™ Lip Treatment

I love all the incarnations of Je Ne Sais Quoi™ lip products and this one is no exception. It’s not a lipstick, it’s a super hydrating lip balm that gives just a hint of color to lips. It feels wonderful on and gives a great slip to lips. I have pale lips to begin with so I think the Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment could have even more of a tint, but anyone with a little natural color to their lips will love it. The packaging is awesome – the cap clicks into place so there is no chance this will come apart in your purse.

Head on over to QVC for this awesome IT Cosmetic TSV.  The collection is only on sale until 11/12/16 so order yours today for the best ever price on all your superstar favorites! – Lisa and Marcia

#ITsAtSephora and IT’s a giveaway at Beauty Info Zone!

#ITsatSephoraI couldn’t be happier that IT Cosmetics is now at Sephora!! I remember many years ago I was complaining that no concealer existed that could hide my incredibly dark undereye circles and Marcia told me about the magic of the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer. I purchased my first tube and have never looked back. In fact, whenever I am asked which line I recommend for the best overall selection of both color products and skin care, IT Cosmetics is the very first one on the list.                                                                                       press sample

Marcia and I were both recently a box full of IT miracles, and Marcia began the love with her awesome review yesterday of the BYE BYE LINES SERUMIT COSMETICS ANTI-AGING ARMOURBYE BYE UNDER EYE EYE CREAM, and HEAVENLY SKIN CC+ SKIN-PERFECTING BRUSH, No. 702. Today I have a review of the remaining items in the big box of happiness, along with even more happiness — a giveaway!!

it-cosmetics-giveawaySomehow I suggested that Marcia review all the anti-aging products, which is actually pretty funny because I have WAY more wrinkles than Marcia does. I swear that woman never ages. I get to review some of my most favorite IT Cosmetics items, along with one that is brand new to me. My tried and true loves:  Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Melting Cleansing Balm ($38), Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment ($24), and Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer ($24). New to me: Bye Bye Pores Primer ($38).

Je Ne Sais QuoiJe Ne Sais QuoiJe Ne Sais Quoi™ Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment: I love all the incarnations of Je Ne Sais Quoi™ lip products, and this one is no exception. It’s not a lipstick, it’s a super hydrating lip balm that gives just a hint of color to lips. It feels wonderful on and gives a great slip to lips. I have pale lips to begin wit, so I think the Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment could have even more of a tint, but anyone with a little natural color to their lips will love it. The packaging is awesome – the cap clicks into place so there is no chance this will come apart in your purse.

Bye Bye Makeup

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm

Bye Bye Makeup™ 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm: If I had to choose only two products, I would go with a cleanser and a concealer. One of my favorite cleansers is the Bye Bye Makeup™ 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm. It’s not a cream, it’s a solid that melts immediately with body temperature and is applied to dry skin like cleansing oil. Don’t be afraid to ‘dig in’ and get a chunk of cleanser – it melts makeup (including eye makeup) right off without the need for a separate makeup remover. That’s the first of the 3 in 1. Second, it is one heck of a moisturizer, leaving skin not only cleansed but also crazy soft and hydrated. The 3 in the 3-in-1?  It’s also an anti-aging skin serum. Normally, I think that any sort of treatment is wasted in a cleanser – after all, it’s getting washed off and going down the sink, right? But this one is activated as soon as it touches your skin, and it creates a sort of barrier that keeps moisture in while also giving skin a glowy radiance. I have been using this paraben- and sulfate-free cleanser for months now and I love it.

Bye Bye Pores Primer Bye Bye Pores Primer
Bye Bye Pores Primer™ Oil-Free Poreless Skin-Perfecting Serum Primer:  
I definitely need more play time with the Bye Bye Pores Primer, which has an oil-free formula that evens out skin tone and texture and gives skin a matte appearance. I do have some enlarged pores and I definitely have some fine lines and wrinkles, so I am hoping this primer will help all of those issues. Ingredients include Moroccan lava clay, purifying charcoal, papaya fruit extract, hydrolyzed collagen and the intriguing Bye Bye Pores Optical Blurring Technology™. So far it certainly makes my skin feel and look smooth, and it increases the wear time and vibrancy of my makeup. Promising!

Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging ConcealerBye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging ConcealerBye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer:   I am a long-time fan of the original Bye Bye Under Eye™, which was my introduction to the IT Cosmetics line. The Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer is the new version of the classic formula along with IT Cosmetic’s Drops of Light Technology™.  It combines everything I love about the classic concealer – long wear, full coverage, skin-loving ingredients – along with a luminescence that helps to conceal blue and red areas.
Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging ConcealerBye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging ConcealerSwatched above are from left to right:  Light, Medium, Tan, and Deep. The top photo shows waaay more concealer than you will need just to get a good pic of the shades, and for the bottom pic I used a bit less.  For every day coverage, I use the tiniest bit of concealer – just a dot goes an incredibly long way. I find the best way to use this is to spread some on the back of my hand as my body temperature helps to warm up the concealer so it spreads easily. Then I dot it on under my eyes and around my nose, continuing to gently pat to blend it in. Every shade is quite useful – I like to use the Light down the bridge of my nose with the Tan on the sides to straighten my nose and give it some definition. Medium is awesome under my eyes, and Deep is a terrific cream contour for my cheeks.
I am hoping today is your lucky day because you can win your choice of Light, Medium, Tan or Dark Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer!  There will be four winners, one for each shade.  Our IT Cosmetics giveaway in celebration of #ITsAtSephora ends on 10/10 at 11:59 p.m. If the rafflecopter gets crankier than a presidential nominee in a debate and won’t let you comment, just email us at [email protected] with your comment – put IT as the title.  Then continue on with the entries, and hopefully you will be able to join us in our excitement now that IT Cosmetics is finally at Sephora!!  – Lisa

Intensive Lip Care Gel Patch by Look Beauty

I am a makeup junkie. I know it, I admit it, and I don’t care to change it. I’m also buying and trying new concealers, foundations, eyeshadows, eyeliners, mascara, and skincare. But I don’t buy lip products at the same rate as I do those other items. Why you ask? (I heard you!!) That’s because my lips are not what I enjoy highlighting. They are smaller than I wish they were and I rarely feel beauteeful even with my favorite lip colors. There has to be a solution to that, doesn’t there?

skintreat SPA by Look Beauty: Intensive Lip Care Gel Patch

skintreat SPA by Look Beauty: Intensive Lip Care Gel Patch

One item that I’m using is the INTENSIVE LIP CARE GEL PATCH by LOOK BEAUTY. When I was offered these to test, I jumped at the chance. As a mask junkie what could be better than trying a lip mask? I think these could be addicting. I use lip balms, lip conditioners, and moisturizing lipsticks but I still want more.

Intensive Lip patches make my spa days more relaxing and my special night preps more enjoyable. These are super easy to use and they don’t make a mess. After applying them on a cleansed face, wait 15-20 minutes, remove and rub in the essence and you are done. Your result will be hydrated lips that feel moisturized. These don’t plump my lips but they look better and less lined when I use them.

The Lip Care Gel Patch is enriched with Shea Butter, Cranberry Extract, Jojoba Oil, and Vitamin E. They have one job – to protect your lips and lip area. There are 4 lip patches in the box ($9.99)

skintreat SPA by Look Beauty: Intensive Lip Care Gel Patch

One of the best things about these masques is that they are so comfortable on. There’s no fragrance, it slides on easily and you can move it around within the first few minutes. They feel like nothing when on so they aren’t annoying and you aren’t counting down the minutes until you can remove it. And you don’t look scary if someone walks into the room.

skintreat SPA by Look Beauty: Intensive Lip Care Gel Patch

This hydrogel formula may not change your life but it’ll change your lips. It will protect them on cold, windy days, they’ll be more hydrated, and you’ll enjoy having a new item to use during those special at home spa days.

Have you ever used a lip mask? What are you waiting for? — Marcia

Improve your kissing with Michael Todd Intensive Cream Lip Treatment

Michael Todd intensive Cream Lip Treatment

Michael Todd intensive Cream Lip Treatment

Winter brings me two unwanted problems  –  dry hands that need constant moisture and dry lips that need extra moisture. I’m working on both of these problems often but they can be hard to solve. I needed help and Michael Todd came to my rescue by sending their INTENSIVE CREAM LIP TREATMENT my way. This wonderful cream is not a lip balm, it’s a treatment which is why it’s so effective.

Michael Todd intensive Cream Lip Treatment

Michael Todd intensive Cream Lip Treatment

I use intensive cream lip treatment when I’m home. It lives in my house so that I won’t go through it too quickly. As soon as my teeth are brushed and my vitamins taken, on goes this lip treatment. At night before I get in bed, on goes this lip treatment. I have lip balms all over my house and use those too but those aren’t what I attribute my better feeling and looking lips to.

Michael Todd intensive Cream Lip Treatment

Pull off the lavender top and you’ll find this slanted tip that helps smooth the cream on. It’s cooling on my lips and the cream glides on. It’s good to then massage it in circular motions. Make this baby work for you! There’s a tiny bit of tingle at first but it’s gone within a minute. It’s nothing that hurts but I do notice it at first.

Michael Todd intensive Cream Lip Treatment

Michael Todd intensive Cream Lip Treatment

Let’s talk about what makes this so successful. Three ingredients have the most effect on this treatment. 1.  Soluble Collagen 2.  Actimp™ 3.  Hyaluronic Acid.

Infused Collagen helps plump and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and works from the inside out.

Actimp™ is the one you haven’t heard about. It’s a peptide made from Sweet white Lupine Flower which not only has skincare benefits but also helps collagen do its job. Extracted peptides from the Lupine flower are clinically validated to strengthen the dermal-epidermal junction restoring elasticity & firmness while healing & repairing through an increase in collagen & elastin production and a decrease in damaging enzymes.

Hyluronic Acid is my favorite ingredient and I’m always happy to find it in my skincare. It attracts water to the skin’s surface and delivers nourishing hydration to skin’s outer layers.

The more moisture the better.

While this gem is on the expensive side ($48) it’s worth it to keep your lips in kissing condition. Pampering your lips with something other than a beautiful lipstick is worth a little indulgence. Your lips will thank you and so will your kissing partner.  — Marcia

In honor of Manuka Secrets bringing their line to Ulta.com and Ulta stores they have sent a set for review and two sets for a giveaway. You’ll want to read about this line and what it can do for you.

Manuka Secrets Honey

Manuka Secrets Honey

Dr. Fernanda Da Silva Tatley is one of the founders and is the company’s molecular medical microbiologist. She chose Manuka Honey since it’s indigenous to New Zealand and provides an antidote for skin’s aging process and aids in moisture replenishment.

Manuka Secrets Cleanse

Manuka Secrets Cleanse

MANUKA SECRETS CLEANSE – BALANCE & REFRESH MANUKA HONEY UMF 18+ ($19.95) is a good cleanser for makeup removal. It leaves skin feeling refreshed without any tautness. It contains wonderful ingredients like almond oil, aloe vera and cucumber assist to cleanse, refresh and soothe. Shea butter supports a deep moisturising nourishment. Frankincense, ylang ylang and patchouli essential oils finish with a silky touch and an alluring spa scent.

Manuka Secrets Exfoliant

Manuka Secrets Exfoliant

MANUKA SECRETS EXFOLIANT UMF 18+ ($24.99) contains 2 sizes of bamboo plus jojoba pearl and white clay to purify and exfoliate your skin. This exfoliant is suitable for all skin types and isn’t too harsh. To stimulate your circulation it’s recommended to use this for 2-3 minutes. Exfoliating with this helps assist with your skin regeneration. Great ingredients include Cacao, Shea butter, Flaxseed, Rice bran and coconut oils support a deep moisturising nourishment. Cucumber assists to soothe and soften.

Manuka Secrets Mask

Manuka Secrets Mask

MANUKA SECRETS MASK UMF 18+ ($24.99) is what’s considered a wet mask. This doesn’t dry down and get crunchy. It stays damp the entire time you have it on your face so it feels much more moisturizing than most masks. This contains high levels of Hyaluronic Acid which are great helpers to hydrate and soften your skin. It also contains white clay which helps lift dry flaking skin and impurities. To moisturize it uses shea butter, almond, rice brand and flaxseed oil. It’s a very comfortable mask to use. It’s recommended to use it for 10 minutes or less.

Manuka Secrets Day Creme

Manuka Secrets Day Creme

MANUKA SECRETS DAY CREAM UMF 18+ ($29.99) is a lightweight moisturizer that has no sticky feeling to it. It doesn’t have sunscreen in it though so you’d need to add that yourself. As with all of the Manuka Secrets products the ingredients are the best. Advanced CoQ10 supports skin’s natural CoQ10 regeneration. High levels of hyaluronic acid assist to hydrate and soften skin. Jojoba, Rosehip seed, almond oil and cacao and Shea butter support a deep moisturising nourishment. Advanced narcissus tazetta bulb, and liquorice assist in soothing dry-irritated skin.

Manuka Secrets Serum

Manuka Secrets Serum

MANUKA SECRETS SERUM UMF 18+ ($49.95) is their most expensive item but a little goes a long way. It’s a thin serum that’s liquidy and contains no silicone. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t interfere with foundation application. The serum is meant to brighten and even your skintone.

Manuka Secrets Night Creme

Manuka Secrets Night Creme

MANUKA SECRETS NIGHT CREAM UMF +18 ($29.99) is also a lightweight moisturizer but seems a little richer than the day creme. I apply it over the serum for that double dose of protection. The ingredients include advanced CoQ10 supporting skins natural CoQ10 regeneration. High levels of advanced narcissus tazetta bulb, algae, aloe vera, and calendula soothe and soften. Hyaluronic acid assists to hydrate and soften tired skin. Jojoba, Rosehip seed, and macadamia oil, cacao and shea butter support a deep moisturising nourishment.

Manuka Secrets Hand Creme and Lip Lustre

Manuka Secrets Hand Creme and Lip Lustre

MANUKA SECRETS HAND CREME ($14.99) contains a rich but light formula. It absorbs quickly without leaving any residue behind. You can use it and continue doing any work you were doing without fear.

MANUKA LIP LUSTRE PACIFIC PARADISE ($9.99) is something they call a Purse Pal since it’s small enough to be on the go with you. It’s a rich feeling lip balm that will moisturize your lips with ease.
