I am so incredibly spoiled by IT Cosmetics. After testing so many amazing IT Cosmetics product, I hold the brand in such high regard I expect to be “wowed” by every new product they release. IT Cosmetics is simply an excellent balance of price and product quality.  This brand delivers excellence, plain and simple, but doesn’t drain your wallet.

The NEW Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination is a neutral tone that leans slightly orange (great for cancelling out blue hues under eye).  This product now contains the “Drops of Light Technology” that helps brighten the look of your skin while delivering full coverage.  It’s quite an amazing concealer!

Bye Bye Pores Blush

Bye Bye Pores Blush

This blush in the shade “Naturally Pretty” is a sophisticated coral that is a great addition to your Springtime routine!  The formula utilizes the IT Cosmetics “Bye Bye Pores” technology that prevents product from settling into enlarged pores and fine lines.  This product delivers buildable coverage, and can be as intense as you wish!

The finishing power is indeed transclucent.  It adds a touch of a mattifying finish to the skin.  My pores are more pronounced as I get older, and as a result I’ve had to stop using some powder products.  Not this beauty by IT Cosmetics!

What will the price be for this TSV!  As I’m writing this, I don’t know!  You’ll have to click HERE to shop for this TSV on QVC.com and see what the steal will be!

If you haven’t already tried it, NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow is simply amazing.  The formula can be applied wet or dry and delivers highly pigmented, smooth color.  Cressida is a shimmering cobalt that makes a perfect accent for your eye makeup look.  Kari is a muted mauve that is so versatile!  I like to use it as a lid shade.  Retail price is $29 per compact.
