Tune in January 19th for a wonderful new TSV for IT Cosmetics

tsv IT

 

I don’t think anything on QVC gets me going like an IT Cosmetics TSV. It’s time to get out your credit card because IT’S A NEW YEAR, YOUR MOST BEAUTIFUL SKIN time. This collection contains 5 brand new products that you need in your life. Not just want but NEED.

CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream

CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream

1)  CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream is a concealer developed to conceal skin discoloration while hydrating your under-eye area. It has a new type of cooling tip using a unique Cold Spoon Technology . You want your eyes nourished since it’s the most delicate skin on your face so you’ll appreciate that it’s made with hyaluronic acid, peptides, hydrolized collagen and silk + grape seed oil. It’s a full coverage cream and it contains SPF 50 to protect your eyes even more!

CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact

CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact

2) CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact is the most exciting product in this set. I absolutely adore IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream so to find this in the compact form is a thrill. The compact is airless. You push the button and a precise amount of CC+ Cream is dispensed giving you skincare, sun protection and full coverage. With SPF 50+ UVA/UVB sunscreen it makes it the ideal product for you year round. Your pores will be minimized, it helps correct dark spots, it has an anti-aging serum and a brightening color corrector. I say this is worth the price of the TSV alone.

CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder

3) CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder is next. This is a lightweight, hydrating powder. It was formulated to help erase the look of fine lines and pores. You’ll end up with an airbrushed look while using a talc free powder infused with hydrolized silk, hydrolized collagen, niacin and peptides. Nothing finer!

It Cosmetics Lipstick in Love

4) A new lipstick has come to town with IT’s Blurred Lines Smooth-Fill Lipstick in Lipstick in Love, a nude pink shade. Why not have the look of smoother lips while adding a great color? It’s formulated with nourishing ingredients that are meant to hydrate your lips: shea butter, jojoba, grape seed extract, cherry oil and hyaluronic acid. IT Cosmetics is always trying to up the ante and they’ve done that with a lipstick that helps smooth the look of lip lines.

CC+ Angled Buffing Foundation Brush

CC+ Angled Buffing Foundation Brush

5) If you’ve never tried IT’s brushes then you are in for a huge treat. This new brush is their CC+ Angled Buffing Foundation Brush. Like all IT brushes this is a luxe, soft brush that does the work for you. It’s custom cut by hand with over 80,000 hairs. You can seamlessly buff your makeup to help the look of pores and fines lines look almost invisible. All IT Cosmetics products are cruelty-free as is the new Angled Buffing Foundation Brush. I can promise you that you’ll love this brush and want to start collecting more from IT.

While I don’t have this TSV yet, I will share pictures once it’s mine. These pix are all from QVC where you can see the set now, A256971. The regular price is $72.50 but on Monday, January 19, 2015 there will be a special TSV price of $59.94. With 5 brand new products of the finest, cruelty free ingredients, this is a bargain. I can’t wait to get mine!!! — Marcia

It Cosmetics and QVC want us to CC Your Way to Beautiful Skin on 3/10/14

CC Your Way to Beautiful Skin!

Available March 10 on QVC as the Today’s Special Value

QVC Special for 3/10/14 Beauty Skin! Collection

Set your clocks ladies and not just for Daylight Savings Time. I want you to set your clocks for the fabulous It Cosmetics TSV on QVC. It’s called CC Your Way to Beautiful Skin and here’s the reason why you need to order – not only will you get a supersize It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum but you’ll also receive the ultimate tool to apply it with.

It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+™ Cream in Medium

There are 4 products in this TSV and Monday, March 10th is the only day you’ll get this at the special price of $58.98. This kit contains CC+™ Lip Serum Hydrating Anti-Aging Color Correcting Creme Gloss, Tightline™ Waterproof Mascara Primer, a super size (2.53 fl oz) Your Skin But Better CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+, and a Heavenly Luxe™ Plush Paddle Foundation Brush.

The TSV I’ve been sent hasn’t arrived but I’ve been talking to all my blogger friends to find out all I can. I’ve always raved about the CC+ Cream and have featured it in my reviews. I absolutely can’t wait to try it out with the Heavenly Luxe™ Plush Paddle Foundation Brush. The brush is thicker than the typical paddle shaped foundation brush so it’s going to apply the CC Cream beautifully. But even better is that it’s an It Cosmetics brush. These brushes are out of this world. Like all It Cosmetics products they are cruelty free.

Heavenly Luxe™ Plush Paddle Foundation Brush

Heavenly Luxe™ Plush Paddle Foundation Brush

First, start your routine off right with Your Skin But Better CC+ ™ Cream with SPF 50+. Using the Heavenly Luxe™ Plush Paddle Foundation Brush, apply a smooth, even layer to clean skin or on top of moisturizer. This CC Cream combines several products in one step, including SPF 50+ UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum, Physical Only, Non-Chemical Sunscreen.  This is the SUPERSIZE Your Skin But Better CC+ ™ Cream with SPF 50+; at 2.53 FL oz, it more than twice the size of the original CC+ Cream!  Be sure to blend this multi-tasking cream all over the face, neck and décolleté to provide the look of an even, hydrating, luminous finish.

Tightline™ Waterproof Mascara Primer

Next, prep and prime the eyelashes with a waterproof mascara primer that lasts 12 hours! Lightly and gently press the Tightline™ Waterproof Mascara Primer wand along the root of the lash line to fill in the gaps between the lashes to achieve the look of full volume and definition. I had the original Tightline Mascara Primer and I’m so looking forward to having another one. This time it’s waterproof so you can look even more outstanding at weddings and special events. I’m not good at waterlining but this goes on differently so I’m not washing it away. Move along the entire upper lash line for a beautiful and natural liner effect for lashes that appear longer and fuller.

There’s a new lip product that I can’t wait to see. Like the other products in this TSV it’s only available in the set. The shade is called LOVE and it’s mauve pink but a brighter pink. This new lip product is more hydrating than their others which is hard to believe considering how hydrating It Cosmetics makes their glosses. The name is CC+™ Lip Serum Hydrating Anti-Aging Color Correcting Crème Gloss.

$58.98 gets you all this. Remember that the original Your Skin But Better CC+™ Cream costs $36 on its own and this one is 2.53 oz compared to 1.08 oz. You pick your shade from Fair, Light, Medium, Tan or Rich. Here’s my personal hint and how I’ll be ordering this to be sure I get my CC+ Cream in Fair …. I go through Ebates or Mr. Rebates. That gives me a little money back and I can do it on my own time frame. Of course I plan on ordering early since I’m not taking a chance that my shade will run out. Will you be taking advantage of this amazing TSV with me? Don’t tell me no, I don’t want you to be sorry! — Marcia

tarte – beauty without boundaries – coming to QVC 9/24/13

 

It’s always time to celebrate when tarte has a TSV on QVC. Their Today’s Special Value is consistently a true value. On Tuesday, Sept. 24th, there’s a new TSV and it’s perfect for you or to stock up as a gift item for the holidays. Inside Beauty without Boundaries there are 7 full size products and a great eco friendly cosmetic bag for $59.96 with a value of $214. Two of the products are new and exclusive to the TSV. Tarte sent this so you can see in advance what you’ll get.

Brushes!! I love brushes. I love tarte brushes a lot! Soft yet firm, cruelty free.

First there’s a dual sided concealer brush; dark and light cruelty free bristles. The light side is used to pick up the product and apply it to your undereye area, then flip it around and use the darker side to smooth and blend. You’ll end up with a flawless finish.

Then there’s a double ended brush for the BB tinted treatment 12 hour primer that’s in the TSV. Use the flat side to lightly dab the primer all over your face and to blend it out. Then flip it around and use the rounded side to target harder to reach areas.

What will you use with these brushes? Why concealer and the tinted treatment of course. You’ll pick the shade that matches you when you order.

There’s a brand new BB tinted undereye corrector that you’ll only find in this TSV for now. The 3 shades are either fair-light, medium-tan or deep. One product I rave about constantly are tarte’s concealers. They are wonderful products that work and don’t end up creasing. As I’m sitting here typing I’m wearing a tarte concealer. I reach for these daily. This new BB tinted undereye corrector not only evens out your skin tone but it’s moisturizing so that it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

BB Tinted Treatment 12-hour Primer: Light then Fair

BB Tinted Treatment 12-hour Primer: Light then Fair

BB Tinted Treatment 12-hour Primer is a product I reviewed before and have used a lot over the past few months. I first received it in Fair and it’s the fairest of fairs. If you have super light skin then that’s the shade for you. In this kit I received it in Light which is a tad dark but mixing them together works well for me (I’m very fair).  It can be worn as just a primer or if the shade is right as a light foundation. The double ended brush is the perfect tool for this so it’s great to have that. (available in fair, light, medium, tan and deep)

I’m very excited to see a new LipSurgence in this kit. I love the ease of these lipstick crayons and the colors are always beautiful. The new LipSurgence is called Power Pigment and the shade is Awakening. This is a great darker pink that’s universal. LipSurgence doesn’t need to be sharpened so it’s easy to keep with you. This is special for the TSV and won’t be available separately.

There was a surprise for me when I opened this set because I didn’t know that there was a black inner rim liner. I’ve reviewed the inner rim brightener and I even included it in my Top 10 Eyeliner post since it’s a gem. To my surprise they make light, camera, lashes 12-hour waterproof inner rim liner in black. This is great news.

Last but far from least is one of tarte’s best mascaras: light, camera, flashes statement mascara. This one is built for volume through their custom engineered dual-molded brush.

There you have it: concealer, primer/tinted treatment, lip color, inner eyeliner, mascara plus two brushes and the bag for just $59.96. I promise that any makeup lover will flip over this. These sell out quickly especially in the lighter shades so you don’t want to wait. The item number for one time delivery is A236677. This set would normally sell for $72.50 so you want to order it on the 24th!! If you want to get autodelivery then use the number A240401 and you’ll keep this great price.

Absolutely do not miss It Cosmetic’s Hello Beautiful set on QVC March 18th!

it cosmetics tsvA very special TSV from It Cosmetics – Hello Beautiful!!

On Monday March 18th starting at midnight EST (so March 17th for some of you) you’ll be able to take advantage of the latest and greatest from IT Cosmetics. There’s no doubt that we love IT Cosmetics on Beauty Info Zone so we’re all excited about this beauty of a deal. There are 5 amazing products from IT inside this and each one is an absolute winner in my book. This set was sent for review but I’d buy this in a minute and believe you should too.

It Cosmetics' Hello Beautiful set

It Cosmetics’ Hello Beautiful set

This is called Hello Beautiful for a very good reason – you’ll definitely be beautiful when you wear these. Contained in the set is CELEBRATION FOUNDATION in your choice of Fair, Light, Medium, Rich and Tan. This comes with the perfect foundation brush for this foundation. Black Hello Lashes mascara is here but there’s a new product for your eyes too called TIGHTLINE mascara primer. Plus for your face there’s a VITALITY PLUS COLOR STICK in Je Ne Sais Quoi.

Let’s start with eyes since included in the TSV is the mascara that won my challenge for Makeup Wars for favorite mascara. I’m crazy about Hello Lashes and having it in the TSV makes me love this kit that much more. One night I was watching Jamie Kern on QVC and she taught me that I was missing a step with the mascara. I wasn’t taking advantage of the tip of the mascara before. Of course I instantly bought a set of two that night off QVC.

I didn’t think they could improve on this mascara but It Cosmetics has come out with a new mascara primer called TIGHTLINE Full Lash Length Mascara Primer. This is only available in this set! It’s a combination tightliner and mascara primer. Wiggle it between your lashes at the root and you’ve got a tightlined look. I’ve got watery eyes and I’m still getting the hang of this primer but I’m excited about it. If you want you can use it as your mascara or you can use it as a primer for Hello Lashes.

CELEBRATION FOUNDATION is a powder foundation that is available in one of 5 shades. You know the lightest shades sell out quickly so be sure you order this fast so your color is in stock. Along with the foundation is the HeavenlyLuxe Airbrush Foundation Brush to make sure your application is perfect. You just swirl the brush in the foundation and then use circular motions to apply. There are a million reasons to love this foundation and a full review will come but trust me, it’s lightweight and doesn’t look powdery or dry on your face.

Plus there’s another new product that I’m jumping up and down about: Vitality Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lip & Cheek Stain Stick in the color Je Ne Sais Quoi. I’ve reviewed the lipstick stain in this shade and now to think there’s also a product that does double duty on cheeks and lips has made me so excited. Je Ne Sais Quoi is a light sheer pink but it’s also a little bit of magic since it will change color on you. It changes more on my lips than it does on my face.

Hello Beautiful has two TSV numbers: A231604 is for one time shipment, A234882 is auto-delivery. The cost is $54.96 and it’s on Easy Pay with 3 payments. I see it available on QVC right now with Auto-delivery (A234882) but with one time shipment you have to wait until Monday to purchase at the TSV price. Whenever you can buy it, buy it. I’m serious about this. If this hadn’t been sent to me I would have bought it for sure; it’s that wonderful. My favorite mascara, a new foundation for me to try, 2  exclusive new  products plus another amazing brush from IT Cosmetics. Hello Beautiful is rightly named. — Marcia

shows will be on March 18,2013 at midnight, 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. eastern time; Easy Pay is only available on that day

 

 

Tarte and QVC bring you Journey to Natural Beauty

tarte journey

It’s time for another fantastic QVC deal from Tarte Cosmetics!  Tarte says, “Start your journey to natural beauty with this 6-piece collection of essentials infused with the best kept secrets of the Amazon. This hand-picked set comes with a chic, travel-friendly bag and brush – making it the perfect accessory to face any adventure.” You can pre-order the TSV, Journey to Natural Beauty, by using item # A233578. It will be available on QVC live and also on QVC.com Tuesday, Feb. 5th using item #A231029. This is priced at $59.94 (after the TSV is over it will cost $72.40).

Sounds like a winner – let’s see what Marcia and Lisa think as they divide up the items to tell you about this set.

Lisa’s Descriptions:

I have long been a huge fan of Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush (retail price ($26) and this beauty certainly didn’t let me down. This is a new shade called Fearless, which is a warm pink with silver shimmer. This is only available in this set.

Fearless Blush

Fearless Blush

I love the color and the formula has the same long-lasting, beautiful finish that all Tarte blushes have.

If you like cool-toned blushes you will be very, very happy with this one.  The accompanying brush (Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush, retail $32) is so pretty – it matches the bag perfectly. This is a limited edition brush that you’ll only find in Journey to Natural Beauty.

tarte journey to natural brush

The description says this is a foundation brush and it works beautifully for that. But it’s also a terrific powder brush and it works for blush too – pat it on the blush then quickly pat on the apples of the cheeks for a healthy look.

So pretty!

So pretty!

tarte journey to natural brush head

Tarte says this brush is “the secret to airbrushing without the air.” At a retail value of $32, this brush alone is worth over half the price of the entire set!

A wonderful finishing tool is the Brow Architect Shaper, Liner & Definer (retails for $25).

The Brow Architect

The Brow Architect

This is a terrific brow tool with a spoolie on one side, highlighter in the middle, and color on the other side. Gotta love three in one products!! Start with the highlighter (it’s in the middle of the tool – easy to miss unless you know it’s there!) under the brow. This unique sponge-tip applicator has the powder already in/on it. Sweeping this under the brow shapes, highlights, and hides stray hairs.

Next, fill in your brows and make them more defined with the color end of the tool.

My sample kit came with the fair-light shade, which worked fine for my dark brown hair.  You actually want your brows to be a little lighter than your hair color.

After shading in the brows, finish the look by combing your brow hair UP with the spoolie end. Doing so will give your eyes a real lift and make your brows look perfect.

Marcia’s Descriptions:

Besides the large beautiful cosmetic bag that these are housed in there are 3 more items to love in this kit. First there’s the foundation, Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Broad Spectrum SPF15 (retail value $38). This is a beautiful weightless foundation that is both buildable and easy to blend. When you order you’ll have a choice of 5 shades: Fair, Light, Medium, Tan or Deep.

•Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation

• Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation

This is an oil-free foundation that is long wearing. Even though it’s called full coverage it’s not a heavy foundation. Your skin will still breathe and you won’t look like you are wearing a mask. Even though I normally wear Fair in most Tarte foundations I’m very comfortable with Light in this too.

There’s a beautiful lipstick included in this kit that’s a perfect complement to Fearless blush. It’s called Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Plummy Rose (retail value $26) which is a perfect description for the tones of this lipstick. Tarte doesn’t use artificial scents in their products so I had nothing to fear when I applied this buttery lipstick. The description calls it a deep rose but I find that if applied lightly it’s more like its name. I can intensify the lipstick to a deep rose shade but I like it with a light layer personally.

This is a buttery moisturizing lipstick with a light peppermint scent that is gone quickly. I love how it feels and looks on my lips.

I saved the best for last. I love Tarte mascaras. I think they are amazing and they’ve brought out a new one just for this TSV. You’ve probably heard of Lights, Camera, Lashes! before but now they created Lights, Camera, Flashes! Statement Mascara. This is not only a deep rich black that lengthens and defines but it has incredible volume. They say up to 752% more volume. I’ll have to take their word for it since I don’t have the proper measuring tools but what I see in the mirror makes me believe that it’s got tons of volume.

Lights, Camera, Flashes! Statement Mascara

Lights, Camera, Flashes! Statement Mascara

tarte journey to natural mascara brushI’ve had no clumping or smudging and the raccoons are being kept at bay with the mascara. I need eye makeup remover to get it off but it comes off easily with it. While Lights, Camera, Lashes (Sephora, $19) comes in a purple tube, they’ve pumped up the volume of this Statement Mascara with a gold tube. If you want to try this special mascara, guess where you’ll find it exclusively? That’s right – in this Journey to Natural Beauty set from QVC.

Overall, this is yet another amazing set from Tarte that is an incredible value.  If you had to buy these separately it would cost you $166 without the cosmetic bag. But on February 5th (or preorder now) you’ll get this for only $59.94. That’s some savings!! Tune in to QVC for tarte beauty Tuesday, February 5, 2013 from Midnight – 1 a.m., 10 – 11 a.m., 3 – 4 p.m., 7 – 8 p.m. EST to see this deal. We’re convinced once you see it, you’ll want it.
