Can You Really Put Confidence In a Compact?

It-Cosmetics-Confidence-in-a-Compact-and-Confidence-in-a-Cream-main

It-Cosmetics-Confidence-in-a-Compact-and-Confidence-in-a-Cream-2
IT seems like IT COSMETICS is just everywhere these days, doesn’t it? I’ve been writing about them since 2008 and they were acquired by L’Oreal last year, so hopefully they were continue to put out innovative products in the market. Sometimes after a brand gets picked up the quality can fall by the wayside. So fingers crossed!

The latest release that has my attention is their Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50+ ($38/18g @ itcosmetics.com, ulta.com).

What It Is: Developed with plastic surgeons, Confidence in a Compact is your first-ever solid serum foundation—and delivers all the skincare benefits of the best-selling Confidence in a Cream, plus full coverage and SPF 50+ physical sunscreen, in one simple step! The groundbreaking solid serum technology combined with anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, squalane, antioxidants and a super ceramide cream truly transform your complexion. Available in Fair, Light, Medium, Medium Tan, Tan, Rich and Deep.

I’m in the Mood for SPRING!

I think the heavy rain in LA is done for the season, which is great because I'm so ready for Spring. And here are a few products I’ve got on my radar that are getting me ready for the upcoming season. Hello sandals!

Spring-2017-Beauty-Products

1. IT COSMETICS Anti-Aging Armour ($38/1oz @ itcosmetics.com) – I always make sure I have a great SPF at the beginning of each new season. This one from IT contains a SPF 50, peptides, and hyaluronic acid as well as that optically blurring technology that pretty much makes any imperfections disappear while you’re wearing it.

2. SOL DE JANEIRO Bum Bum Cream ($57/8.1oz, $25/2.5oz @ sephora.com) – what is it about this product? Is it the name? Is it the cool container? Kinda both actually and more. Pronounced (boom-boom), this luxe cream contains cupuaçu butter, acai, coconut oil and the Amazonian plant guarana, which is a major player in the caffeine department. All of these combined make for skin that’s not only taut but super smooth. And the scent of this one is soo inviting! I go in and out of craving it. I know, odd!

3. WOOSH BEAUTY Spin-On Lip Gloss ($19 @ wooshbeauty.com) – I’ve decided to revisit lip gloss again this season as I’ve been pretty distant from it and I’m starting with this one. Wow. This one really performs when it comes to the application brush. It rolls as you roll it over lips with the gloss. This is a first! Shown here in Pink Natural

4. SKINDINAVIA Post-Makeup Recovery Spray ($26/4oz, $36/8oz @ skindinavia.com) – now here’s a brand new category! A product you apply after taking makeup off, which applies nutrients like mineral zinc and willow bark, which can help with breakouts. Just spray on within 5 minutes of removing makeup to reap the benefits.

5. TRUE BRIT LONDON Nail Polish in Heirloom (£12.50 @ truebritlondon.co.uk) – this metallic rose gold shade from this new brand is so fitting right now! True Brit London is only available for purchase on their UK site right now but I’m sure it will expand. 

6. HELIOCARE Dietary Supplement Sun Protection Pills ($30/60 pills @ dermstore.com) – why not fight UVA/UVB rays from the inside out? Major technology is inside these pills will not only protect it from the sun but also supply it with antioxidants. Great for all skin types!

Trend Alert – Cleansing Balms

It-Cosmetics-Bye-Bye-Makeup-Pixi-Beauty-Nourishing-Cleansing-Balm
Cleansing Balms – This is one category that has exploded, which, I’m glad to see it! I consider the cleansing balm like a better-for-your-skin cold cream. What started with this from Cailyn Cosmetics, went to this face-off of the one from Clinique and Cailyn to now with Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm ($38/2.82oz @ itcosmetics.com, qvc.com) from IT COSMETICS and Nourishing Cleansing Balm ($20/3.04oz @ pixibeauty.com, target.com) from PIXI BEAUTY’s Skintreats line.

These balms are superior at taking the whole day off, makeup and all, in a gentle and quick way.

Are you interested in trying a balm to take off your makeup at the end of the day? Do tell in the comments!

Get Your Superhero on with It Cosmetics

IT-Cosmetics-Superhero-Eye-Transforming-Anti-Aging-Super-Palette-main

Mine came in this cute pouch with pins on it!


I’m not sure how I feel about shimmery/glittery eye shadows these days. I’ve been so all about mattes that I almost forgot they existed! So when the new IT COSMETICS ‘Superhero’ Eye Transforming Anti-Aging Super Palette ($42 @ qvc.com) was sent my way by their PR team, I thought, “ok, time to move out of the mattes!”

This uniquely shaped palette is quite fun in the packaging department and serious about the product inside. Each superhero-inspired shade was developed with plastic surgeons (not sure which one/s) and infuses anti-aging properties inside. Hmmm, not sure if I’m applying enough of it on my lids to reap that benefit, am I? Well it sounds fancy.

Get Matte with IT Cosmetics

It-Cosmetics-Naturally-Pretty-Essentials-Matte-Luxe-Transforming-Eyeshadow-Palette-compact
I don’t think you could get a shimmery eye shadow on my lids right now if you tried. Well, if you held me down perhaps but I’m just not feeling them these days, along with lip gloss.

That’s why the IT COSMETICS Naturally Pretty Essentials ($28 @ itcosmetics.com and qvc.com) eye shadow palette is so up my alley; it’s all mattes all the time and one radiatingly gorg highlighter.

April Beauty Favorites

April-Favorites-2
As we come to the close of April, I’ve been frantically testing out products I think are worthy of getting the favorite of the month tag. Here are a few I recommend. 

1. FRESH Sugar Sport Treatment Sunscreen SPF 30 ($25 @ fresh.com, sephora.com) – Since it’s in a stick form, you can slide it in your purse and never worry about spillage. Now there’s no excuse for not wearing SPF, right?

2. IT COSMETICS Heavenly Luxe You Sculpted! #18 Contour & Highlight Brush ($34.50 @ itcosmetics.com) - So why don’t I have a brush like this in my collection? I didn’t realize how much I needed one in this shape until I saw this one! Isn’t that always the case? Love this one for (trying) to sculpt my cheeks and to brush under the jaw line. 

3. KISS USA Ruby Kisses Matte Lipstick in Red Mangrove ($2.99 @ kissusa.com) – Wait, did you even know this brand made anything beside lashes and fake nails? I didn’t! I saw a few YouTube videos raving about their matte lipsticks so I had to try them and they are really all that. If you like a little moisture with your matte lippies then these are for you and how about that price?? I picked mine up at my local beauty supply store.

4. BENEFIT COSMETICS Dandelion Shy Beam Liquid Highlighter ($26 @ benefitcosmetics.com) – This is such a nice matte pinky nude highlighter that can be use anywhere on the face. Lately it’s been ruling the tops of my cheeks.

5. CLINIQUE Pep-Start Eye Cream ($26.50 @ clinique.com and sephora.com) – I’ve never needed an eye cream more than in the last few months for some reason. #aging. This one is light on the skin and on the purse strings. It hydrates, depuffs and really seems to wake me up.

6. ELIE SAAB ‘Le Parfum Rose Couture’ Eau de Toilette ($80/1.6oz, $108/3oz only @ nordstrom.com) – Anything rose always welcomes springtime for me and I’ve worn this one non-stop since I got it. Orange flower, jasmine, rose nectar, vetiver, sandalwood, patchouli, mandarin tree blossom, gardenia and warm honey rose. Every note says feminine.

7. TARTE COSMETICS Rainforest of the Sea Wipeout Color-Correcting Palette ($45 @ dermstore.comsephora.com) – You don’t need to suffer from any kind of discolorations on your skin anymore! Color-correcting is all the rage for a reason. It works! This one has 6 creams shades to get your skin on point.

IT Cosmetics Gives You Brow Power!

One of my all-time favorite brow liners is now in a super skinny casing. IT COSMETICS Brow Power Super Skinny ($24 @ ulta.comqvc.com) and I believe it’s replacing their YBBB Your Brows But Better. This original liner was a universal shade in that the harder you pushed while applying, the darker the color would appear. What they’ve done here is created a pencil for each hair color: Auburn, Blonde, Dark Brown, Grey, Medium Brown, Warm Blonde.
