ipsy February 2016 Glam Bag

Hey guys! It’s a beautiful day today here in sunny Oklahoma! Guess what arrived in my mailbox? It’s a little later than usual this month but it could be worse. Here’s what I got in my ipsy February 2016 Glam Bag.

I like the bag a lot but it already has some damage right by the zipper (the makeup brush is covering it in the above pic). Not sure if it’s the nature of the material or what but that’s a bummer. I emailed ipsyCare about it with a clear pic of the damage so we’ll see what they say. First item that caught my eye is the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye® Anti-Aging Concealer. I love this brand and I LOVE this product. I have used a slightly different version of concealer from them before (IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye® Waterproof Anti-Aging Concealer) but this should perform on the same level as that. Next up is Luxie Beauty Flat Definer Brush 221. I don’t use makeup brushes much and have a ton already so this will go in a gifting pile. Then we have Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion. I love microdermabrasions so I’ll be trying this out very soon. Next is the Promise Organic Ultra Moisturizing Argan Creme Facial Lotion. I just began a new facial skincare regimen so I’ll just save this up for when I travel. It’s the perfect size for it. Last item is the tre’StiQue Baby Blush Stick. The shade I got is called Bora Bora Coral. I already have too many blushes that I don’t use so I think I’ll just save this for part of a goody bag for someone later on.

Overall, the IT Cosmetics item made it worth it for me. I can’t stop raving about their concealers.

IT Cosmetics New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin! 5pc Collection

Hey guys! If you’re an IT Cosmetics fan then today’s your lucky day! IT Cosmetics has this neat set that is on TSV on QVC all day today while supplies last. All of the products in this kit is new. It’s definitely worth checking it! I really liked their last TSV set on QVC Your Most Radiant You!. The ombre blush is just too pretty! Here’s the breakdown of what you’ll be getting in this IT Cosmetics New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin! 5pc Collection.

The item I am most excited about in this set is actually the lipstick. I haven’t tried any lip products from this brand and I’m a huge lipstick fan. The shade I got is in Love. The brush is another item I’m eager to have to add to my stash. The bristles are so soft — just as I would expect from an IT Cosmetics makeup brush. The one item I am most intrigued about is the CC+® Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact. In the press release here, it speaks of it as a dispensing compact where it releases the product with the push of a button. I look forward to seeing that in action. I’m curious to find out if the CC+® Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream is better than their product I already own, their Bye Bye Under Eye® Waterproof Anti-Aging Concealer. The description seems to be that they’re similar in purpose of concealing at least. The newer one sounds fancier though based on the description.

IT Cosmetics Blurred Lines™ Smooth-Fill Lipstick

IT Cosmetics CC+® Angled Buffing Foundation Brush

They’re packaged pretty nicely in a sturdy casing that holds everything just like the previous kits I’ve received. I LOVE the packaging of this kit from the individual boxes to the actual items. They all have a hint of holographic goodness that makes me giddy.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye® Waterproof Anti-Aging Concealer

Hey guys! It’s Monday again. I hope your weekends were fun and productive. Mine was! I spent the weekend setting up this garden type of deal at one side of our yard. There were lots of digging involved. It looks good and all we’ve got left it dump some topsoil on and apply a coat of sealant to the wood on the outer side of the boxed garden. I made sure I wore sunscreen on my face at least since I tan very easily. Today’s post is on a makeup item that I typically don’t reach for but it blew me away when I did try it. Here’s my take on the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Waterproof Anti-Aging Concealer.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye® Waterproof Anti-Aging Concealer

The product description on the back of the box states the following:

“To Use: Dispense a pinhead size amount of Bye Bye Under Eye® Waterproof Concealer onto the back of your hand and warm up with your fingers. Apply to skin and gently blend using your fingertips or an IT Cosmetics® Heavenly Luxe® Airbrush Concealer or Foundation Brush. To set, gently press into skin. For a more matte finish, set with IT Cosmetics® Bye Bye Pores® Silk Anti-Aging Micro-Finishing Powder. Can be used as a spot concealer or all over foundation.”

More description from their website:

“Working hand in hand with leading plastic surgeons, Bye Bye Under Eye was created as a full coverage, highly pigmented anti-aging concealer that utilizes truly innovative technology and ingredients – giving women the power to finally say “bye -bye!” to stubborn under-eye issues. Bye Bye Under Eye offers a waterproof, yet moisturizing, formula that stays put no matter what. The truly innovative formula contains high concentrations of Vitamins K, A, C, E and Collagen, which are clinically proven to reduce under eye puffiness and discoloration while strengthening the delicate skin of the under eye area. Hypo-allergenic and non-comedogenic.”

What I love about this product? The results! Immediate and undeniable — this product delivers what it claims. It is the BEST concealer I’ve ever tried so far. It covers so well that it caught me by surprise. I’ve tried concealers before and the results I get didn’t excite me like this one. This is the only concealer I’ve ever considered using on a regular basis and purchasing when it’s all gone. The others I’ve tried work only so-so. Part of it is my fault since it doesn’t match my skin tone while the other part is the product just doesn’t blend well or the texture is off and such. This one? No problems at all. At first, I got a little impatient with the tube because it was so slow in generating product for my initial use. But then I realized that it’s a great packaging design cause I really don’t need much at all. The tiny hole at the tip of the tube really helps with control on how much product to use. I followed instructions and applied it with my fingers onto my under eye area. BAM! I can’t even tell I’m wearing any concealer by looks and by feel. It doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. I can’t really feel that it’s there actually, which makes this product the best concealer I’ve ever tried to date. The shade I got is in Neutral Medium and it matches me perfectly.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing. Nothing at all. I’m willing to plunk down my hard-earned cash for this product.

This item retails for $24 for 8 g / 0.28 oz and the regular version is available on their website as well as other retail and online locations such as ULTA and QVC. I actually got this version (waterproof) as part of a set they had released on QVC as shown here. To check what retail locations where products from her line are carried, click here.

IT Cosmetics IT’s All About You! 5pc Customer Favorites Collection

Hey guys! I don’t have complete reviews on these at all, but I had to post this since this will be on QVC Today’s Special Value starting at June 21, 2014 at midnight EST. It will run until 11:59 PM PT while supplies last. I’m not sure how much this will go for, but it’s their Today’s Special Value and these are usually great deals that go fast. It’s worth checking it out in my opinion. Here’s the breakdown of what you’ll be getting in this IT Cosmetics IT’s All About You! 5pc Customer Favorites Collection.

EDIT: IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation® review here, IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye® Waterproof Anti-Aging Concealer review here.

I personally have heard a lot about their concealer and will definitely put that to the test. I haven’t been to ULTA lately, so I haven’t really come into contact with this brand. This is a nice set though and the brush is soft. I immediately liked it, but only time will tell as I use it more if it holds up well or not. I don’t wear foundation because I never got used to the feeling of it on my face. I’ll try this out to see if it’s wearable for my taste as well as test its claim of a “full coverage, lightweight anti-aging foundation rich in skin-loving peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, silk and more, helps you attain a perfect, airbrushed complexion in 30 seconds!” The palette is simply gorgeous and very functional as it consists of a brightening finishing powder, a flush blush and a matte bronzer. These are said to be “anti-aging talc-free powders that include color correcting pigments that enhance and even out the appearance of your natural skin tone, while boosting the warmth and radiance of your skin”. Sounds like my kind of makeup since I don’t do the whole shebang like others do for a full face. I like to keep it simple and quick. The brow pencil might turn out to be a keeper for me. It has the pencil on one end and a spoolie brush on the other. I love that they did that. It’s perfect to just toss it in your purse and it comes with an insert with tips on how to line the brows for the optimal look for your face.

And in case you’re worried about how it’s packaged and all that, it’s pretty solid in that aspect I think. See for yourself what it looks just from opening the box it came in:

IT Cosmetics IT’s All About You! 5pc Customer Favorites Collection (solid packaging)”

The hard plastic hold the products in place (molded to the shape of the products) and have enough space or gap around so that the sides of the boxes aren’t touching the products at all. Solid, indeed!

Again, this will be available on QVC Today’s Special Value starting at June 21, 2014 at midnight EST. and it will run until 11:59 PM PT while supplies last.
