I have a new love and also a new-to-me product range to share with you today!
IT Cosmetics is a brand I've heard a lot about during my time as a blogger, so of course I'm thrilled to be giving it a try. Coming SOON for one day only (March 18, 2013) to QVC, IT Cosmetics presents their Hello Beautiful Kit which is filled with five products to make you... beautiful. Obviously.
Included in this kit are five top items - the Heavenly Luxe Buffing Airbrush Foundation Brush, Celebration Foundation, Tightline Full Lash Length Black Primer Skinny Wand, Hello Lashes and the Vitality Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lip & Cheek Stain Stick.
Starting off, the Celebration Foundation (shown in shade Light Medium) literally covers all. See below. I'm going to be up front.... my skin isn't that flawless and I did absolutely no retouching on that photo. Sometimes I'll zap a zit out or something, but I didn't have to hide squat after using this foundation. I applied with the included Heavenly Luxe Buffing Airbrush Foundation Brush and the Foundation went on smoothly and doesn't look cakey.
The Tightline Full Lash Length Black Primer Skinny Wand happened next. To be honest I didn't see a huge difference with this. My lashes are pretty long and have a natural lift, but this wand was really nice for getting in at the shorter lashes and would be perfection for doing the lower lashes and not making a mess of yourself.
The Hello Lashes Mascara has an interesting wand. A regular wand but with a ball on the end. Sort of like weaponry for your eye balls. The ball makes it easy to get at the lashes at the inner and outer corners and helps to define and separate.
Finally, my most favorite product to DATE. Literally. I don't know how I survived without it. The Vitality Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lip & Cheek Stain Stick in Je Ne Sais Quoi (which, incidentally, is only available in this kit). Yes, folks, this is your new holy grail. It may look clear, but it gives off such a natural and dewy pink flush. It glides on and blends easily with your fingertips. It's a tad sticky, but if you dust a bit of the Celebration Foundation over-top it will help. I want to sleep with this and keep in it a glass case. It's a complete and utter love and if you're a natural beauty who likes to get ready in 5 minutes your dumb if you don't buy it. Just being real.
So, normally I'd swatch a set of products on my arm, but for the most part this is face stuff... so I thought it better to just show off the products in action!
