IT Cosmetics Best Sellers: Product Guide & Why you need to try them!

I had the pleasure recently to test out 5 of IT Cosmetics Best Sellers and I can say is there is a definite reason these are best sellers. I am not really sure what took me so long to try any of these products as I love their Ombre Bronzer and blush. I had heard  so many good things from family and friends and fellow bloggers on Instagram over and over so as soon as these arrived I put them to the test. In case you are new to IT Cosmetics they are sold at Ulta Beauty, which makes the brand accessible which I love!!! Here is a little background on the brand “IT Cosmetics™ works with plastic surgeons to develop clinically proven, innovative, problem-solving products that harness cutting-edge, anti-aging technologies and skin-loving ingredients to truly give you the power to be Your Most Beautiful You™.”

Product Guide & Breakdown

1. Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+: This CC Cream has a serious fan base, has an award winning formula, number 1 seller and after trying it I get it 100%!!!! This product has impressed me the most out of the 5. It literally covers everything including my redness which is hard to come by yet doesn’t feel like a foundation. It can be a little too matte for me some days but all I do is squeeze in my MAC Strobe Cream (see swatches here) and it gives the perfect dewy effect.  The best shade for me is Medium and in the winter if it seems to dark all I need to do is mix it in my moisturizer and it will lighten up a bit. This product also has an luminous option which I will be buying to try! If you are looking for an easy all in one product this is it! This delivers 7 products in 1, ummmm yes please!!!! 

  • Full-coverage foundation
  • SPF 50+ UVA/UVB broad-spectrum physical sunscreen
  • Brightening color corrector
  • Hydrating anti-aging serum
  • Poreless finish primer
  • Dark spot concealer
  • Moisturizing day cream

2. Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer: If you have been following me for a while you know I prefer a dewy concealer that gives great coverage that does not look too thick or matte. This concealer covers the dark circles, gives the most dewy fresh look under your eyes and blends out beautifully.  The best shade for me is Medium and there are 7 shades available. Some skin benefits this concealer has to offer:

  • Anti-aging peptides
  • vitamins
  • antioxidants
  • hydrolyzed collagen
  • hyaluronic acid

3. Super Hero Elastic Strength Volumizing Mascara: One swipe and I was in shock. I normally do not spend money on high end mascara because there are too many fabulous options at the drugstore. However this mascara has given me faith again in High End Mascara. All I can say is they don’t call this a Super Hero for nothing!

4. Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil: I am not sure how these brands made shades that are Universal but its happening and I LOVE IT! Developed with surgeons it made to adhere to the skin and look like real hair. It literally melts into my brows for a natural look which you all know I prefer. Some Ingrediants in this product include:

  • saw palmetto
  • green tea
  • vitamins A, C, E,
  • grapeseed

5. Bye Bye Pores Silk HD Anti-Aging Micro Powder: Powders are not our friend as we age (insert dewy makeup here lol). This powder however was specifically designed for aging women who want to set their makeup. Per the Ulta Website ” delivers a face-perfecting airbrush effect. It absorbs oil and shine, and blurs away the look of pores, without settling into lines and wrinkles. It sets makeup and helps to diffuse the appearance of wrinkles and pores instantly” I will say it does what it claims. I prefer the loose powder over the pressed powder as I feel it just works better with my skin and shows better results for me.

I know we have dicussed the 5 IT Cosmetics Best Sellers but there are two I need to add in here. The Ombre Bronzer and Blushes are just stunning and some of my favs in my personal makeup collection.IT Cosmetics Best Sellers

CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush: This blush for obvious reasons is stunning to look at but it gives a natural flush of color and glow! It is available in 3 shades and guaranteed to finish off any of your looks beautifully! Shade shown is Sugar Plum.

CC+ Radiance Ombre Bronzer: I do not even know where to begin with this bronzer other than you need it! It has a glowy side and a matte side so you can pick and choose or swirl your brush around to get all the goodness this bronzer has to offer, which is what I do. It gives you the most perfedt warm glow for your face and body. I always bronze up my skin especially when I am going out at night or to an event. I take a huge powder brush and go to town and this bronzer has been a staple in my routine for 3 years now.

Easy Beauty Routine: 5 Must Have Products

With all of us being so busy these days we all want beauty products that will be quick, easy to use, effective and reliable. Now I know there are probably way more products out there that can make for an easy beauty routine but I have found these 5 to work for me and my lifestyle. In case you are newer to my blog I am a mother of two and I work a  full time job in downtown Chicago. I travel into the city everyday by train and with two kids in the morning there are beauty products I must use to make life easier.  Often I have 5 minutes left for my makeup or will do my makeup on the train. So many women do this. Crazy right?!? I love watching what others are doing to learn some new time saving tips from them lol!! I truly enjoy taking my time to do my makeup and hair but most days that is not my reality. Over the years I have found these 5 products will indeed create a quick and easy beauty routine or at least help you out when you just don’t have the time!

1. DRY SHAMPOO: I honestly wish I was one of those women who can use dry shampoo for 3-5 days to take that step out of my routine but I cant without my hair looking like an oily mess. However I can do it for one day and I will take that over no days. Using dry shampoo is your perfect way to save time from 1 day to up to even 5 days to make for an easy beauty routine in the morning. One I am loving right now is:

  • Eva NYC  Freshen Up Dry Shampoo: Its affordable for one and you all know I love affordable products. Its sold at Ulta Beauty and CVS Pharmacy  so that makes it accessible to many women which I appreciate because here I am taking about easy beauty routines so the products should be easy to find too. Most importantly it works, has a fabulous smell and does not leave any sort of residue on your hair. It has Vitamin C in it that enhances shine, moisturizes and strengthens the hair!! WIN!!! Another important ingredient is the Natural Rice Starch. This ingredient is a gentle yet effective alternative to talc or aluminum. So by using Eva NYC in the morning even if its every other day for me it helps save time and makes getting ready that much easier for me.

2. POTTED EYE SHADOW: This type of product is  perfect for that one sweep of color you need to look awake or to finish off a look. I prefer bronze and chocolate colors but grab whatever potted eyeshadow color that works for you. I love to buy shades perfect for everyday. Remember I said I do my makeup on the train sometimes? Well using my finger for applying products makes things easy for me.  A couple I use a ton are:

3. TINTED MOISTURIZER / BB – CC Creams:  There are so many options out there from sheer coverage, bb creams, cc creams, fuller coverage, aging benefits ect ….. I am just starting to really dig into this portion of the beauty world because I have absolutely fallen in LOVE with this type of product.  I do my morning skin care routine, take the product squeeze onto my fingers and slather it all over my face. NO TOOLS REQUIRED. Now are there days I use a small stippling brush or my beauty sponge to apply? Of course but the texture of this type of product just makes it that much easy to skip that step and slap it onto my face. No fuss no muss.  Here are three I am using non stop in my rotation:

4. 2 IN 1 PRODUCTS: Ok who does not love a good multi -tasker, space saver and all around hero product to make life easier?!!? I love simplifying life and when I can get more bang for my buck its a win win!!! You wont go wrong with these:

5. STICK CONCEALERS: I LOVE concealers. LOVE THEM!!  I have become quite obsessed with eye products in the last few months and stick concealers are just so easy they are a must have for your collection. This product is an important part in my train makeup routine because there is no mess and no fuss. I can apply the ones I own with my finger and or brush. Of course I love using a beauty sponge to apply any concealer but these will blend for you and apply easy with your finger or brush. The brush I have been using is the Elf Cosmetics $3.00 Concealer Brush. Yes you read that correct $3!!! Here are some stick concealers I have in rotation

 

What products are your go to for an easy beauty routine or just to make your life easier? Have you tried any of these products? I am always on the look out for new ones to try. Let me know in the comments below.
