Tune in to QVC at midnight eastern time for a great Lavanila set and enter our giveaway

I look at QVC every day to see their TSV. I’ve gotten some amazing buys on products that I need for myself or my home. I’ve also kicked myself when I’ve let something go that I should have bought. An example is that I bought a set of sheets for one bed and totally forgot at the time that I needed a set for another bedroom. It went back to full price and now I have to wait.

Don’t wait to get your hands (or pits) on this Lavanila Deodorant Set that’s a $44 dollar value but will cost just $26.50 on 6/7/16 at QVC on TV or on QVC.com.

MARCIA’S trio of wonders:

Bye Bye Pores Blush, Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush, and Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder

Bye Bye Pores Blush, Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush, and Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder

I’ve chosen to tell you about the powders and brush that are in this TSV since I’m incredibly impressed with these. I purchased Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder shortly after it was released (review) and it’s a pleasure to have a new one especially with the brush that I’m going to be gushing about. This translucent powder gives an airbrushed finish when I swirl a brush over it to lightly finish my skin and set my makeup. It’s a wonderful powder to use with the new Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination in this kit.

Bye Bye Pores Airbrush Brightening Blush in Naturally Pretty is a dream color for me. In the compact it looks like a coral with a touch of pink but when applied it’s a beautiful salmon – pinky peach shade. This is highly pigmented so don’t go overboard. It blends perfectly. It’s buildable for those of you that need more pigmentation but for me it’s a perfect shade.

IT Cosmetics It's Your Bye Bye Collection

I love that the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder will blur my imperfections and the new Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush makes it even better. If you’ve ever experienced IT’s brushes then you know how wonderful they are. This powder brush though is the softest and most luxurious brush ever. If you are a brush fanatic like I am, you need this set even if it’s just for the brush. All I can say is OMG. I want to sleep with it. Even though I just want to brush this over my skin it’s so effective that I’ve given in to use it with the powder.

Three perfect products but there’s more with LISA’S Dynamic Duo:

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup and Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination

I’ve always felt that if I have a great cleanser and a great concealer, I am pretty much set. Two of the new products in the #ItsYourByeBye Collection are in that ‘great’ category – in fact, they’re so awesome I think they are worth the collection price all by themselves.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup

The Bye Bye Makeup™ 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm is a unique take on a cleanser. It’s not a cream, it’s a solid that melts immediately with body temperature, and it’s applied to dry skin like cleansing oil. I was initially very conservative with it, just sliding my fingers across the top and then smoothing it on, but I finally realized that it was ok to ‘dig in’ and get a chunk. The cleanser has a nice, light citrus scent that is very pleasant and doesn’t hang around long.
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm

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

First and foremost, the 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm definitely cleanses! It takes off all makeup, including eye makeup, without the need for a separate makeup remover. 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 actually creates a sort of barrier keeping moisture in while also giving skin a glowy radiance. I have nothing but raves for this excellent paraben- and sulfate-free cleanser.

The second of my dynamic duo is the new Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer. I am a long-time fan of the original Bye Bye Under Eye™, and this new version is 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 it conceal blue and red areas to perfection.
I have the Medium shade swatched above. I used the tiniest bit of concealer – just a dot goes an incredibly long way. I find the best way to use this is to spread the concealer 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.
 .
Between Marcia’s trio of wonders and Lisa’s dynamic duo, the #ItsYourByeBye Collection is one quality quintet of products!  Today, Friday March 25th, is the only day for this awesome set at the incredible $59.96 TSV price. What are you waiting for? Head over to QVC now before it sells out!!

Celebrate the new year with IT Cosmetics TSV “New Year Your Most Beautiful Skin”

IT Cosmetics TSV

#yourmostbeautiful2016

Saturday, January 16th is one special day on QVC since it’s Beauty Day. The best part of Beauty Day for us is that it means a TSV for IT Cosmetics. And what a great TSV it is. Lisa and Marcia are thrilled to have received a sneak peek to share with you so you can see what special items are in IT COSMETICS NEW YEAR, YOUR MOST BEAUTIFUL SKIN COLLECTION, 6 piece set.

IT Cosmetics TSV Your Most Beautiful Skin #yourmostbeautiful2016

LISA is sharing CC+ Veil Cushion Compact Foundation and 2 brushes

IT Cosmetics stole my heart a long time ago and it continues to be one of my favorite cosmetics line. This set is really a fantastic value and so much fun!

IT Cosmetics New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin foundation and brushes

IT Cosmetics CC+Veil Cushion Compact Foundation

IT Cosmetics CC Veil Foundation in Fair

The CC+ Veil Cushion Compact Foundation is a sponge-worthy foundation (for all you Seinfeld fans!) that has just about everything. It has a 50+ SPF, an anti-aging serum, a moisturizer, a primer, and a sheer to medium foundation, all in one. If you have oily skin you will still want to use a separate primer, but otherwise this is definitely a multi-tasker that will make you very happy.

IT Cosmetics CC+Veil Cushion Compact Foundation refill

The squishy sponge houses a creamy liquid foundation that goes on like gossamer, it’s so lightweight. The coverage is sheer but buildable, and what I really love about this set is it includes a refill! I’m not sure how long the sponge will last, but I’m glad to know that once I’ve used it up I have another one ready. My shade is medium, and it’s a neutral tone that is a little on the light side for a medium shade.

Heavenly Luxe Dual-Ended Complexion Perfection Brush

While the foundation comes with an application puff, I prefer the Heavenly Luxe Dual-Ended Complexion Perfection Brush. This brush is oh-so-soft, but it’s densely packed so it gives great control.  The large end is perfect for applying the Cushion Compact Foundation and the small end is great for those hard to cover areas like around the eyes and nose.

Angled Radiance Creme Brush

The other brush included in this set is the Angled Radiance Creme Brush. It has an angled edge that really hugs your cheekbones. The bristles are fabulous for cream blush application, blending the blush so naturally it creates a beautiful, glowy flush. I think my three products alone are worth the $59.96 price tag, but there are even more goodies included that Marcia has for review.

MARCIA is sharing Je Ne Sais Quoi! Lipstick and Creme Blush

Once you open this fabulous TSV you’ll find two Je Ne Sais Quoi products – one brand new and one revamped. Let me start with the revamped lipstick.

Just the other day when I wrote about Pantone 2016 Colors I showed you a picture of Je Ne Sais Quoi Blurred Lines Smooth Fill Lipstick. When I opened my new lipstick I found that the color wasn’t the same but the technology was. Originally the lipstick was almost clear and your body’s chemistry changed it to suit you. Now the lipstick is tinted pink and comes in a special iridescent white case. So pretty, so nourishing, full on color that has collagen and hyaluronic filling spheres to make your lips look your most beautiful ever.

Now to the exciting part for me (don’t get me wrong though, I adore the foundation too). A creme blush!!!! I am a creme blush fanatic so I was especially excited to find this in the QVC TSV. This too is named Je Ne Sais Quoi, officially IT COSMETICS CC+ VITALITY BRIGHTENING CREME BLUSH in JE NE SAIS QUOI. Call me thrilled.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Vitality Brightening Creme Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi

IT Cosmetics CC+ Vitality Brightening Creme Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi

The blush tries to trick you but you’ll be thrilled with its trickiness. It appears as a pink in the compact but when I swatched it I found it look very light. So light in fact that I worried that it wouldn’t show up. But like the lipstick it’s a color correcting anti-aging creme blush. It starts off light (see picture below) but then deepens on its own to a very natural pink. It never gets too deep on me but it’s not too light either. It’s, to quote Goldilocks, “just right”. The Angled Radiance Creme Brush described above is a great tool to smooth this onto your cheeks.

If you add up the products in this TSV they’d cost you $214.00. But like all IT Cosmetics TSV’s the price is amazing at $59.96. The TSV number is A272018 for a one time buy and A276946 for auto delivery. Don’t miss out on this great deal and the opportunity to have your most beautiful skin ever.

tarte Beauty in the Basics QVC TSV Collection review and swatches

tarte beauty basicsThe tarte Beauty in the Basics QVC Today’s Special Value Collection will be sold for one day only – Monday, May 11th. Regularly $58, this set is going for $47.96. It’s a great deal on an excellent collection. Take a look at the six full size items inside!

Amazonian clay smoothing balm in Fair and bamboo balm brush

The Amazonian clay smoothing balm and bamboo balm brush are both new and are truly lovely. While this smoothing balm is in the shade Fair (so it is definitely going to end up in Marcia’s makeup bag) I really like it. I would need the light-medium shade, but this creamy, medium coverage foundation is very very interesting. It has a great texture. I thought it was going to be heavy like a cream foundation, but instead it is light and smooth. There is no oily or greasy texture, yet it has plenty of slip and is nicely buildable. It is a perfect foundation for hot summer months. The brush is substantial, that’s for sure  I love it as a buffing brush, but it is too large to get into smaller areas like under the eyes. Still, it’s a great brush and will get tons of use.

lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara and Amazonian clay tightlining eyeliner

lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara and Amazonian clay tightlining eyeliner

There are three eye products, including the mascara staple lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara, and the new Amazonian clay tightlining eyeliner in a black/brown shade. The eyeliner is perfect for tightlining, which is lining the upper lids from underneath the lash line. I am a huge fan of tightlining because my eyelids have a ridge, so tightlining completes the lined look and makes a big difference for me. The tarte tightlining eyeliner is the perfect size for this – it reminds me of a brow lining pencil. The texture is harder than a typical eyeliner, and the liner really stays put. I also love this for a very thin line on the lower lash line.

I really love the colored clay eyeshadow palette. I can’t say that the colors are anything out of the ordinary, but this is the Beauty in the Basics Collection, right?? These colors are staples for any makeup kit: classic cream, simple slate, tantalizing tan and breathtaking brown. The biggest news, though, is the texture of these eyeshadows. When I swatched them I literally said “Ooooooohhhhhh!” Talk about buttery smooth. They are so buttery they almost feel wet. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Trust me, you want this palette.

LipSurgence lip creme

The final item is the LipSurgence lip creme, a chunky lip pencil in a pretty, shiny honeysuckle pink. This is an excellent summer shade.

It’s time for IT Cosmetics TSV the CC+ Your Way To Radiant Skin on 3/27

it tsv march
Hey ladies – look what’s coming our way!! IT Cosmetics is gracing us with a new TSV on QVC. There is nothing better to make this season perfect. This is a one day event on Friday March 27th and these sell out so quickly that you need to get on it right away.
Let’s take a look at what’s in this IT Cosmetics CC+ Your Way To Radiant Skin TSV. Some of these items are favorites already and some are brand new and destined to be favorites.
it logo
I’m going to start with the product I’m most excited about – Your Skin But Better® Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC+ Illuminating Foundation. I bought the Full Coverage Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer on the IT Cosmetics website and it was the price of this entire TSV so I know this kit is a bargain. I’m so excited about this new addition that has everything I love about IT Cosmetics that you know I’ll be buying the kit even if it’s just to get this Illuminating Foundation. It’s available in 5 shades:it skintones
Every IT Cosmetics brush I’ve tried has been like a dream and this one sounds amazing too. There’s a brand new Heavenly Luxe Radiance Wand in this set.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe® Radiance Wand Brush

This brush is going to be perfect for the foundation and for what’s next…..

The Anti Aging Vitality Face Disc is everything you need – a matte bronzer, glowing highlighter and beautiful blush. Your complexion is set with these three products alone.

It Cosmetics Anti Aging Vitality Face Disc

But there’s more (said in my best announcer voice)! It Cosmetics has several Luxe High-Performance Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Trios and they’ve created a new one just for this TSV. This will be your chance to own Pretty in Spring. The three shades are infused with IT’s special anti-aging ingredients that help blur any imperfections.

IT Pretty in Spring trio

What’s an eyeshadow without a brush? Nothing… so the last item you’ll find in this TSV is the No-Tug® Dual Airbrush Eyeshadow Brush. This is a dual sided brush is soft as a kitten yet blends perfectly. As with all IT products it’s cruelty free. I find the most economical way for me to collect IT brushes is through their TSV kits. march tsv it

More good news, this entire kit is under $60 (but worth $172!!!) and QVC has lowered their shipping costs to just $3. No more high shipping and handling. I’ll be one of the first to order even though I own the Anti Aging Vitality Face Disc. I don’t have the other 4 items and I W.A.N.T. them. Don’t you?? — Marcia

Tarte’s Miracle from the Amazon 6 piece collection is the TSV for February 13th

tarte miracle from the Amazon 6 piece collection TSV @tartecosmetics

tarte miracle from the Amazon 6 piece collection TSV @tartecosmetics

A tarte TSV on QVC is reason to celebrate. The products are unique and most are limited edition, the quality is superb, and the price is always good. I’m sure that you’ll be as thrilled opening your collection as I was when sent this.

Tarte is known for using pioneer skinvigorating ingredients that come straight from the Amazon. This cruelty-free company has some of the best products available. But you need to hurry because this is a one day special. Today February the 13th won’t be a bad luck day if you decide to get this!

1.  MARACUJA MIRACLE FOUNDATION is both a foundation and a concealer. This is a new product from tarte that is very hydrating. It’s available in 6 shades (fair, light, light-medium, medium, tan and deep). The foundation is infused with maracuja oil for a firmer, brighter and smoother appearance. I’m crazy about my maracuja items like the concealer so this is a great edition to the line and my life.

tarte  Maracuja Miracle foundation

The foundation has a dropper inside for easy access. Shake the bottle first and put a few drops on your face. Then blend with the brush included. It’s not a thick foundation yet it will give you great buildable coverage. I have it in Light which is a little on the yellow side so I’ll have to buy this in Fair which I know will be perfect. I know they call this a foundcealer but I don’t find it enough coverage for concealer. It looks great as a foundation though.

2.  MARACUJA MIRACLE FOUNDATION BRUSH is a great brush for this foundation and for your cosmetic life. All tarte brushes are cruelty free, soft and do their job perfectly. I won’t tell anyone you are using it with every foundation you own if you won’t!

3) LIMITED EDITION AMAZONIAN CLAY EYE & CHEEK PALETTE is absolutely beautiful. Not only does this beautiful palette contain 6 new eyeshadow shades but it also contains a very flattering blush. This is by far my favorite piece in the collection. I’m an eyeshadow fanatic and these are such gorgeous colors that they are worth my fanaticism.

The eyeshadow colors apply beautifully and the wear is long lasting. I was trying to pick a favorite side but it’s impossible with shades like this.

tarte palette swatches: Pink Beyond, Taupe for the Best, Dreams Plum True

tarte palette swatches: Pink Beyond, Taupe for the Best, Dreams Plum True

Pink Beyond is a very soft pink matte shadow that I use as a brow highlight. It’s beautiful too if you want a light shadow look to use it as a lid shade. Taupe for the Best is a dreamy shimmering steel taupe. The shimmer is soft and the color will knock your socks off.  Dreams Plum True is a matte purple that applies like a satin. It’s dark enough to be used to line but I love it on the outer corner of my eye.

tarte Out of this Pearl, Thistle be the Day, and Paint the Brown

tarte Out of this Pearl, Thistle be the Day, and Paint the Brown

Out of this Palette is a pearly golden ivory that is fabulous on. It has a beautiful sheen that I just love. Thistle be the Day is described as a plush matte greige. I see taupe and I love taupe shadows. Paint the Brown is a matte chocolate brown that will make the perfect lining shade or crease shade for anything in this palette.

tarte Talented blush

tarte Talented blush

The blush in the palette is a full size tarte Amazonian clay shade in Talented, a color limited to this TSV palette. It’s a peachy coral though I find there’s a good amount of pink in it too. Beautiful color that works well with all the eyeshadow shades.

4) The double ended eyeshadow brush has a crease/blending end and a lay down side. tarte tsv  brush blend

tarte tsv  brush pat

5) LipSurgence Liquid Lip Shine in Exquisite is a limited edition shade that has a great texture to it. It’s sheer yet imbues enough color on its own that you don’t need another lipstick unless you want it of course. LipSurgence Liquid Lip Shine are very hydrating and not too sticky.

6) Gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara in limited edition packaging is a gem. I’ve always liked tarte mascaras and this is no exception. Gifted mascara is available for $20 on the tarte website but not with this great packaging. According to tarte

  • Amazonian clay: balances, nourishes, hydrates, replenishes and repairs to promote healthy, more voluminous lashes and while preventing lash loss
  • Rice wax: natural wax that helps lengthen lashes

All 6 of these great products come in a limited edition travel makeup bag. The value of these products is $182 if you bought them separately but tarte has this for $59.96 on QVC on Friday, February 13th only. The number of the set is A261420. Or you can buy it on auto delivery with the number A265526. I advice you to act quickly. The last time I showed a TSV it sold out early. Don’t be the one to regret holding off. — Marcia

Update on IT Cosmetic’s 1/19 TSV

IT Cosmetics It's a New Year, Most Beautiful Skin promo picture

IT Cosmetics It’s a New Year, Most Beautiful Skin promo picture

I’m sad to say that the IT Cosmetics TSV from January 19th is sold out. It is such a wonderful kit. I received one from PR but too late to show the products but I also bought one for myself that will soon be for my very excited sister.  Most of the products will be available individually though so I want to share my update with pictures.it january tsv card

There were 5 fabulous products that were new to the kit. I have the kit in Fair and it’s a great shade for my fair skin.

CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream –
I’ve been a fan of IT Cosmetic’s Concealers for years and I own them all. This fuller coverage concealer is a treat because of the packaging (and of course the product). The packaging is called Cold Spoon Technology and it’s a refreshing touch of cool when you apply it. Just don’t squeeze too hard since a little goes a long way. This blends in beautifully and lasts. Plus it’s giving much needed SPF 50+ coverage.

CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact is the product I was most anxious to try and it was definitely worth the wait. This isn’t the cushion product that we’ve started to see. It’s their wonder CC+ Cream in compact form. Push the button and the product comes out. I use the sponge it comes with to apply. It’s wonderful for packing and it’s wonderful because it’s a fabulous CC Cream.

CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder is a talc free hydrating powder. It is beautiful over every foundation I’ve tried it with but especially over IT’s CC Cream. Not all powders are light enough for me but this is whisper soft.

The CC+ Angled Buffing Foundation Brush is the a terrific brush for the products in this kit and for all the other facial products I use. IT Cosmetic brushes are amazing and I wish I owned them all. Like all products from IT, they are cruelty free. If you read a lot of raves about them it’s because they are uniquely wonderful. This Angled Buffing brush is great for buffing in foundation as well as for use with a powder product. It’s also great for blending your blush so it looks seamless on your face.

Blurred Lines Smooth-Fill Lipstick ™ in LOVE.  What a pretty shade this is. Love is described by IT as a nude pink but I don’t find it to be nude at all. To me it’s a more universal sheer shade of a rose/pink. It’s formulated with nourishing ingredients that are meant to hydrate your lips: shea butter, jojoba, grape seed extract, cherry oil and hyaluronic acid.
