One of my most favorite products ever is the Your Skin But Better CC Cream by IT Cosmetics. It acts as a sunscreen, foundation and an anti-aging serum. But it does leave one thing to be desired..and that is the leftover product stuck in the container! It comes in a tube with a pump to make application easier, but when the pump “dries up” there is still a bunch of CC Cream left in there. That is when I got wise and decided to clip off the top of the tube.
I cut it pretty close to the bottom and then used a concealer brush to get it out and apply it to my face. I got probably a week or so more use out of it this way and I just stored it in a sealed plastic bag.
On Saturday July 13, It Cosmetics will be offering a special anti-aging, 6-pc collection for one day only on QVC. It Cosmetics sent me the “Your Most Beautiful You 6-pc Collection” for review ahead of the launch day.
If you’re on the fence about buying it, I hope my review helps!
The set includes:
Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer in a supersize 1 ounce
YBBB Your Brows But Better Brow Power Skinny Pencil
Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain
Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer
I don’t really have dark circles, but I still need concealer. My biggest complaint about most concealers is that they set into my wrinkles, pronouncing them. The Bye Bye Under Eye is a treatment concealer developed by plastic surgeons. It doesn’t crease or crack and will cover ANYTHING. On the QVC site, they showed how it completely covered a tattoo. I was really pleased with it under my eyes and other places I needed concealer. The Heavenly Luxe Dual Airbrush Foundation/Concealer Brush really made the difference, giving my skin an airbrushed look. The concealer comes in 4 colors, with most people using Neutral Medium. I don’t know if their will be a choice for the QVC Today’s Special Value. I am pretty fair and Neutral Medium was perfect. Only get fair if you are REALLY fair. I will definitely be picking up another tube of this.
The Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Luminizer is essentially a creme highlighter. It is formulated with collagen, silk and Vitamin C to hydrate as well as illuminate. It is meant to be applied over foundation or onto bare skin. It has a pink tint but does not look pink on your skin. It lasted longer than my powder highlighters and did not highlight wrinkles. It comes with a brochure that shows you where to apply it. The Heavenly Luxe Precision Complexion Brush makes application easy even in small spaces.
The YBBB Your Brows But Better Brow Power Skinny Pen was created to make pencil markings look more like actual hair. One end is a super skinny retractable pencil that adjusts to all hair colors and the other is a brow brush. If you want perfectly lined movie star brows, this pencil does it! I have always bought drugstore pencils, but this pencil really makes a difference! I am sold!
Finally, for lips we have the Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain. This lip gloss/stain is more like a treatment. It plumps and minimizes lip lines with butters, oils, collagen, peptides and hyaluronic acid. It looks pretty sheer in the tube, but turns a darker color once it is applied to the lips. The only thing I don’t like it that it has a sponge applicator.
IT Cosmetics was created by Jamie Kern, who was looking for solutions to her own beauty problems like sparse brows, hyperpigmentation and rosacea. Most of the products sold by IT Cosmetics are cruelty-free and paraben free. I don’t know the cost of “Your Most Beautiful You Collection”, but it will be available at QVC and QVC.com for 24 hours on July 13, 2013. The retail value of the collection is $182, but I suspect it will be much cheaper. Here is a picture of the shipped collection:
