It Cosmetics Must Haves...

Saturday, May 20, 2017

I'm not sure any female will admit that they don't love makeup. But, I bet more than half are still looking for their favorite brand. I was one of those half until November 2015. That's the year it all changed for me. The house was all decorated for Christmas and to get in the mood for buying gifts, I started watching QVC. That day happened to have an It Cosmetics special value featured. I watched that segment and ordered. When it came in, I loved everything! I loved how it was applied, how it looked on my face, and have it felt and wore on my face all day. However, it didn't come with one of my now favorites from It Cosmetics, their CC+ Full Coverage Cream. But, it did come with a sample of it and I as soon as I tried it, I knew it was the right makeup for me.

I'm an "It Girl" and proud to be one. This isn't a sponsored post, although I'd love it if they sent me some new products to try. This is simply a post because I get so many compliments on my makeup everyday. And, it literally takes less than ten minutes to put on from start to finish. Probably less time most days cause let's be honest, with two kids three and under no one has time to be a makeup artist.

Here are my must haves from It Cosmetics. I wear or use these products everyday. And you can get yours at QVC, Sephora, or Ulta. Some are only at one or two of those stores, but I'll try to tell you which ones when I post below about them.

1 - Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination This concealer is my magic wand. Seriously. Once I became a mom, my dark circles became my enemy. But this product keeps them at bay. I wear "light" because I like for it to be one step lighter than my makeup so it gives a little highlighter affect. I know this is sold at QVC and it even comes with a brush, but it can also be purchased at Sephora. And that one little tube will last you half the year, even if you wear it everyday.  

2 - Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection Blush, Bye Bye Pores, Highlighter and Bronzer all in one! I'll be honest, I don't use the Bye Bye Pores much — but the others are well used, everyday. I use the bronzer under my cheek bone, the blush on my cheeks and the highlighter just about my cheek. I've purchased this at Ulta, and will probably have to go back for more, soon!

3 - CC+ Full Coverage Cream Illumination You know those filters on snapchat, or what's worse, those apps you buy to make your face look flawless? You don't have to use those anymore with this gem. It's lightweight, covers everything, and it only takes one pump. I apply it with an It Cosmetics brush like number 8. It stays on ALL day, even in the summer when I sweat or swim. AND, it has SPF 50+! Score! I wear light in the winter/spring and medium in the summer/fall. I get it at Ulta, Sephora or QVC. (If you order at QVC, it's about $5 more and you get a brush to apply it with!) This small tube lasts me at least six months, sometimes longer — and I wear it everyday.

4 - Bye Bye Lines Serium Okay, I'll be honest. I got this as a sample and fell in love. It's not a miracle worker, but it does help with the fine lines around my eyes and mouth. It's pricey, but I got a full bottle in a QVC special value. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought a bottle. But, I'm glad it came with it — I kinda fell in love with it! Buy it at QVC or Sephora.

5 - Superhero Mascara Holy lashes, y'all. And I'm not talking about the clumpy flaky lashes either. This mascara should be in everyone's makeup bag. Long, beautiful, lushus lashes. What every girl wants, right? My only issue is that it's not waterproof. Sold at QVC (as a set of two for only $26!), Sephora and Ulta.

6 - Brow Power Super Skinny I've used their regular Brow Power pencil since 2015, but I decided to go with this one since you can pick your hair color. The universal pencil color works for me, but I really like this Super Skinny one better. I have really thin eyebrows, and this makes them fuller and more visible without looking fake or drawn on. You can purchase at QVC and Ulta.

7 - Confidence in a Cream Hello hydration! Literally my favorite moisturizer, ever. Lightweight, not greasy, and won't break you out. Now that's what I call a win win! I don't wear it during the day under my makeup, but you can. I love to put it on once I've washed my face and am getting ready for bed. I've purchased at QVC, Ulta and Sephora.

8 - It Cosmetics Brushes I couldn't pick a favorite brush, because I use so many of their heavenly brushes and I love them all. I have one for my CC+ Full Coverage Cream, Complexion Perfection, and a powder brush. Check out all the It Cosmetics brushes at Ulta. You can't go wrong with any of them!

9 - Bye Bye Makeup Hands down, my favorite makeup remover, ever! It removes it all. Just a little to melt in your fingers, rub all over your face, including your eye lids, and it is all gone. Now, I go through this probably everything three months. But it's one simple step, so I'm not buying multiple bottles of stuff to get my makeup off. So worth the money! Only sold at QVC and Sephora.

They have so many other products that I love and use, but these are my everyday favorites. I'm not QVC addict, but I do like to watch them during Christmas and that's how I found out about It Cosmetics. Now, I get an email when they will air their products or have a special value coming up with their products. I'll be honest, I hate that I can't get all my favorites at both Ulta and Sephora, but they've sold exclusive products to them — so I'm thankful we have both close to us. Sometimes I just can't wait for an order to be shipped to me. Ha!

Have you tried It Cosmetics? What are your favorites?


  1. I just bought my first IT product from QVS Beauty with Benefits sale they were doing last week. I got an eye shadow trio and I LOVE it!!! It came with a brush and I loved the brush as well. I have heard so many things about the IT CC cream and I think you have convinced me to just get it! I need something with SPF for the summer. You have seen my pale pale skin! You use just it and no foundation, right?

  2. IT brushes are expensive but the quality is definitely there. You could make do with a less expensive fan brush but if you want a better application IT brushes do the job very well. High End Adult Toys
