IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Moisturizing Super Cream

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Moisturizing Super Cream

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Moisturizing Super Cream is a non-greasy type of moisturizer that I use right after I cleanse, tone, and apply my prescription-strength retinoid or BHA exfoliant. I mix it with my 100% pure argan oil or use it by itself. I wake up to soft and supple skin when I use this.


IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation
IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation
The IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation is a revelation.  It looks powdery (duh, it is powder), but it gives a really creamy, beautiful finish to the skin.   I swirled some product on the dual ended Heavenly Luxe brush that came with this kit, and it gave a beautiful, flawless finish on my skin.  I was truly impressed!  It covered imperfections great and also gave a seamless, creamy finish.  This is IT Cosmetics' Anti-Aging Foundation as the brand claims that this product blurs imperfections and wrinkles.  Honestly, I really did feel that it blurs my imperfections when I wear them, and it simply does look good.  I wear this foundation on a regular basis and I'm still pretty happy with it.


To make this product look creamier and less powdery, I mist my face with a facial mist after applying the product, then I buff in the product again to mix with the facial mist to give it a creamy  finish.

IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum
IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum

The IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum is one of my favorite items in this kit.  It makes the lips super soft and moisturized, kind of like a lip mask.  I use this before applying my liquid lipsticks which tend to be drying.

The Heavenly Luxe Dual-Ended Buff & Blend Brush is super soft, as with all It Cosmetics brushes.  The buffing end is for the application of the Celebration Foundation, and the other end is for the blending of the Bye Bye Undereye Concealer, but I mostly use this to buff the foundation.  This is such a versatile little brush.


IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

 For some reason, I think the new IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer is a bit creamier and not as difficult to blend.  It does help that you warm the product first with your finger before applying.  I love the new packaging with a bigger opening.  It is an anti-aging concealer, so this will not settle into fine lines when applied carefully.


IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

The IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara is such a great find, and I can honestly say that.  I am loving volumizing mascaras as I tend to have short, fine lashes.  The IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara truly gives my short, sparse lashes the boost they need.  I like that it also elongates the lashes and makes them look lush.


Go ahead and grab this Today's Special Value from IT Cosmetics, you won't be disappointed.  The price point is beyond amazing.

Zoya Fall 2018: Zoya Element Swatches, Review

Press Sample


Zoya Element Collection

Fall is upon us!  Zoya comes with us with a beautiful array of fall colors from the Zoya Element Collection.  I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite fall collections from Zoya.  Here are my thoughts on the Zoya Element collection, and my swatches:


Zoya Rumor

Zoya Rumor
Zoya Rumor
Zoya Rumor is described as a full-coverage mauve taupe with shimmer.  I am super in love with this shade.  Very ladylike!  It reminds me of a very old China Glaze collection that has a similar shimmer.  I think this will also work well as a stamping polish.  I will review once I find that out!

Zoya Devin

Zoya Devin is described as steel blue with hints of multicolored shimmer in a dense foil finish.   It's such a beautiful shade and the colors shift depending on whether under shade or direct sunlight.



Zoya Jenna

Zoya Jenna is described as a dusty rose cream with blue undertones.  This is such a flattering, girly girl color for my warm skintone.  This is definitely one of my faves from this collection.



Zoya Ruthie

Ahh, Zoya Ruthie is a gorgeous mauve cream.  Some people might say this is a "mom color", but I disagree (and besides, I'm a mom, so what's wrong with that? ;-) ).  It's described as a raspberry rose cream.  Such a gorgeous year-round color.


Zoya MaryAnn

Zoya MaryAnn is described as a full-coverage pink toned rose with soft glowing shimmer.  Not a favorite since I don't like the shimmer effect of this combined with the color, but it's pretty nonetheless.



Zoya Kendra

Zoya Kendra is such a beauty!  This is described as a full coverage marsala cream, but looks raisin-y to me.  Very fall-ish color.

Zoya Alyssa is the quintessential fall red cream, but described as a red-toned purple cranberry cream.  Opaque in two coats.  



Zoya Donnie

Zoya Donnie is described as a purple-toned sangria cream, but it is a bit bright to be a fall color, but I will still rock it for fall.  The purple tones make it look really flattering on my skintone.



Zoya Maeve

Zoya Gardner is a deep periwinkle with magenta shimmer in a dense foil finish.  Definitely one of my top faves from this collection.  It looks really festive and bright and yet perfect for any time of the year.

All in all, I am super impressed with this collection from Zoya, definitely one of my top fall collections from Zoya of all time.  The finishes are very diverse and unique, I specifically love the shimmer of Rumor - it's very one-of-a-kind.

My favorites are definitely Rumor, Kendra, Ruthie, Gardner and Rachael.

Zoya polishes retain for $10 a pop and are available at select stores and salons nationwide and online at Zoya.com.

It's here again, the much awaited IT Cosmetics' QVC Today's Special Value!  To be honest, though, although this collection is compact, I love the fact that IT Cosmetics included the most basic and yet most important face base essentials - the CC Cream, finishing powder and makeup brush.


This kit includes the following:

IT Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder

The IT Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder is my favorite item in this kit.  This is such an amazing finishing powder.  It does make the makeup look seamless and airbrushed.  It can go from sheer as a finishing powder to a full-coverage foundation.  Love this!

IT Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil Free Matte Full Coverage Cream

The IT Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil Free Matte Full Coverage Cream is great for those who want a seamless, matte finish.  I like my foundation with a little bit of glow, but this is perfect for those who have combination to oily skin and want something to control the oilies.

This new CC+ Oil Free Matte contains peptides, niacinamide, and hydrolyzed collagen, and gives very buildable, color-correcting coverage.
