press-sampleIn the world of eyeshadow, meet your new Superhero!  As with many other IT Cosmetics products, these shadows aren’t just to help you create a pretty eye look.  This shadow formula contains anti-aging ingredients to help you achieve more youthful skin around the eye while you’re prettying yourself up.  Isn’t that so amazing? The shadow formula contains hydrolyzed collagen, silk, peptides, and antioxidants to achieve this goal.  The palette also contains a generous 12 shades to enjoy: three oversized “eye foundation” shades to give you the perfect start, three nudes for a natural look, three neutrals to amp up a natural look with a bolder crease colors that go with anything, and three liners that can be used wet or dry to line and define your eyes, or to create a bolder look.

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogAnyone with eyes can see the new Lancôme Grandiose Liner bottles are gorgeous.  Their curvy design and purple ombre purple color are eye catching enough to earn them prime real estate on your vanity.  What’s harder to spot is the genius of these little liner bottles.  The applicator brush is designed to pivot on a sphere, making it so much easier to apply liquid liner!  I’ve confessed in many posts that I am liquid liner challenged, so I truly appreciate the literal and figurative flexibility of this product.

IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour Review

press-sampleI first received IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour as part of a collection sent to me to announce the launch of IT Cosmetics at Sephora.  This product has since become one of my all-time favorite IT Cosmetics products, so I wanted to be sure to circle back and tell you more.  IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour is the ultimate multi-tasking sunblock.  It’s a broad-spectrum SPF50 block, that just to happens to be almost exactly the color of my skin.  Many SPF blocks can leave a pasty white film on the skin, but not this!  It delivers a medium-toned neutral shade at the same time it moisturizes and protects your skin!

I do have to tell you, however, that I informally polled my beauty blogging friends from fair to dark and they disagree with the assertion that this product works on every skin tone.  I will say that it’s basically a perfect match for my light to medium skin and evens my skintone like a champ.  Many days I even skip the foundation, this product is that good!  Want to know if the color would work for you?  I’d say give it a try if you wear light or medium IT Cosmetics foundation or CC cream.

Retail price is $38 per 1 oz. bottle. This cruelty-free product is also free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

To purchase, you can CLICK HERE to shop ITCosmetics.com.  Other retailers include Sephora, Ulta, and QVC.

press-sampleThis time of year has the same impact on everyone’s complexion.  More time indoors and exposing the skin to forced-air heat means a dull and lifeless complexion.  That glow you crave can be achieved with a vacation to a warm and sunny destination, or you can fake it with Lancôme Glow Subtil.
