Hello lovelies! It is always fun for me to share some of my favorite makeup items with you! This time I am going to share some of my recent favorites from the amazing IT Cosmetics line. IT Cosmetics is quickly becoming one of my go-to favorite brands! The products are fabulous and the makeup brushes...swoon! These items I am sharing are not only some of my favorites from IT Cosmetics, but also these are overall makeup favorites as well! I am continually impressed by this line!!!
A Bit about IT:
IT Cosmetics is an innovative indie cosmetics company that features anti-aging formulas in their color cosmetics. This seems to be a trend with cutting edge cosmetics companies. I, for one, would much rather use cosmetics that pack in extra anti-aging ingredients that are proven to work! I am in my late 30s and want to do everything that I can to fight off age! Plus, I just feel better about using cosmetics with skin-loving ingredients like antioxidants.

IT Cosmetics is also cruelty free! Their products are free from talc, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, mineral oil, petroleum, synthetic fragrances, and phthalates.

Some new Favorites from IT Cosmetics:
I have recently fallen in love with quite a few items from IT Cosmetics! Keep reading to find out more about IT's Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, Vitality Lip Flush, Hello Light Illuminating Powder, Vitality Cheek Flush Blush Stain and Blush Brush, and the My Sculpted Face Kit.

My favorites from IT Cosmetics:

A Fabulous Concealer: IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer:
In a word: Wow!  Okay ya'll, you know me...finding the best under eye concealers is one of the driving forces behind the creation and continuation of this blog! I have such a quest for finding fabulous concealers and covering my dark circles that I created an entire blog series dedicated to concealers: the Cover It! Concealer Review Series. Rather that write about this concealer as part of that series, I decided to include it here as it is one of my top 5 favorites from this line overall!

My dark circles are bad. Very bad. I have allergies, a general lack of sleep, and hereditary dark circles. The triumvirate of dark circle problems. As far as concealers go, I feel like I have tried just a bit of everything out there. Honestly, I would like to try *everything* out there. I am determined to find multiple concealers that work. I have found a few great ones already. However, we makeup lovers know how it goes...sometimes you find a great product and then, gasp, it is discontinued!

Enter IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. As I mentioned, Wow! It is a full coverage waterproof concealer, It is very dense and highly pigmented. The pigmentation is so concentrated that you only need the tiniest amount. This is KEY for a great under eye concealer. You do not want to cake up a lot of product in your under eye area as that will only emphasize any fine lines and look, well, cakey. You can build up this product as needed to get your desired coverage. The coverage is very opaque. It absolutely obliterates my dark circles. Plus, the shade light is a very nice match for my ultra-fair skin. Love, love, love this stuff!!! Not only a top 5 IT Cosmetics item, but also one of my top 5 concealers of all time.

This concealer is not just great for dark circles, but also for any skin discoloration (even bruising!). It comes in 4 shades: light, neutral medium (works great on my best friend who has warm medium toned skin), tan, and deep. 

You are getting not only coverage with this product, but great skincare benefits, too! This concealer wears all day and the formula is packed with great skincare ingredients like Vitamins C, K, A, and E. Plus, it contains Hydrolyzed Collagen (clinically proven to reduce under eye puffiness and discoloration while strengthening the delicate skin of the under eye area). A .28 oz tube retails for about $24. The product is so concentrated that this little tube will last me a very long time! There is no question that I will be purchasing this in the future! I am in love!!!
All-in-One Lip Product: IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush:
Color, check. Moisture, check. Glossy shine, check. This product does it all! I tend to reach for these lippies above all others when I just want something easy-to-wear. They just make my lips feel so comfortable!!! Plus, the clear version is my go-to for everyday as a base for whatever lip look that I am doing. Rather than go into more detail here, I am just going to link you to my full Vitality Lip Flush review.
Get your Glow on! IT Cosmetics Hello Light Illuminating Powder
What a beautiful highlighter!!! I am so picky when it comes to highlighters. I want something that makes me look glowy without looking glittery or greasy. I has to be just the right shade and it must have just the right balance of luminescence. Previously, my holy grail highlighter has been Dior's Amber Diamond. I must say, this Hello Light Illuminating Powder has knocked Amber Diamond off of the top spot for me. I still love both. However, I just seem to reach for Hello Light more. I just feel beautiful when I wear it! It gives my skin such a soft glow and it really emphasizes my bone structure. Please read my full Hello Light review for more details on this amazing product!!!

A Beautiful Flush: Vitality Cheek Flush Blush Stain and Blush Brush:
I have fallen head-over-heels in love with this blush. Next to concealer, my other greatest cosmetics love is blush. Actually, I have a crush on blush. Blush gets me excited! Giving your cheeks a gorgeous glow just makes such an impact!

This blush is so unique! It is a powder blush STAIN! Somehow the geniuses at IT Cosmetics were able to infuse a stain into a powder form. So, you get an all-day wear stain with the ease of a powder! Plus, like all IT Cosmetics items, the formula is choc-full of skin-loving ingredients. Swoon! The blush contains IT Cosmetic's "Hydra-Luxe" Technology hydrating formula with amino acids, plum oil, cherry oil, hyaluronic acid, pomegranate, jojoba, aloe, seaweed extract, and grapeseed. Plus, the formula also contains antioxidant powerhouses Vitamins A, C, E, plus acai, green tea, and white tea. This blush makes all other blushes seem wimpy by comparison!

Amazing ingredients aside, this blush is just so darn pretty and flattering!!! I have the shade "Matte Sweet Apple". Quite frankly, when I first saw this blush I thought "no way! way too dark/bold". Boy was I wrong! This pinkish-red blush looks so natural on! This waterproof (yes, waterproof) formula glides right on and lasts all day!

The Key to a good application is the amazingly soft IT Cosmetics Luxe French Boutique Blush Brush. Yes, you guessed it, this is my new favorite blush brush. it is amazingly soft and the brush head is the perfect size and shape for my cheeks. Plus, I love the little bump in the handle. It just is so easy to hold and manipulate. It picks up just the right amount of color and I never seem to "over do" my blush when I use this amazing brush! Yay!!! This brush retails for $34. Plus, it is cruelty-free!

Contour Your Face Like a Pro!!! Last, but not least: the My Sculpted Face Kit:
I am so excited about this kit! This easy powder kit face palette absolutely takes the guesswork out of facial contouring. Facial contouring makes such an impact!!! You really can bring out the best in your face: your bone structure, with precise contouring and highlighting.

This palette contains 6 face powders: There are 2 highlighting powders (one slightly shimmery and one matte white highlight) and 4 matte contouring skintone shades ranging from light brown to very dark brown.The best part? This kit comes with a fabulous face chart that shows you exactly where to apply the contouring and highlights! It really makes the process fool-proof. I don't apply all of the contouring and highlighting shown in the picture but I do loosely follow it and find it very helpful! I love having all of these powders in one simple kit. I tend to skip the two darkest shades but use all of the rest.

Here is the face chart from IT Cosmetics. You simply apply the highlight where the white lines are and the contouring where the darker lines are. :)

So, those are my new faves from IT Cosmetics! What have you tried from this brand? Do you have any recommendations for items that I should try out and review? I would love to explore this line further! :)

Thanks for reading and stay beautiful!
