As you already know there’s a new It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You QVC Today’s Special Value available today for Holiday 2014 that includes five full size It Cosmetics products! I gave you a little sneak peek of the set earlier last week and today I thought I’d review and swatch the set for your.
Let’s take a look!
It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You is available as a one time purchase for $54.96 or you can purchase an auto ship option which will include everything you see here except the brush every 90 days for the next 2 years, you can of course, cancel anytime you want. I believe future shipments that lack the brush will be charged at a lower price but I’ll confirm that shortly and update this post! Unfortunately the upcoming shipments will not include new color selections so everything you get in the first shipment is exactly what you’ll get in future shipments.
The It Cosmetics Your Most You Set includes full sizes of:
- Celebration Foundation Illumination in Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, or Rich
- Hello Lashes! Extensions Mascara in Black
- No Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Black/Brown
- CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi (soft pink shade)
- Heavenly Luxe Double Airbrush Foundation Brush
I reviewed It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation when it originally launched. This is a much beloved formula for It Girls but doesn’t quite get on well for my drier skin. It contains the same anti-aging formula as the original but this version has drops of light technology to give skin a lit from within glow.
This is a full coverage foundation with a matte finish that is supposed to illuminate skin. It comes housed in a white compact that houses the powder on the top level as well as a mirror with a flat brush for application located on the bottom. You get your pick of five shades in this formula when ordering.
My drier skin doesn’t get on with it. If you want a full coverage matte foundation and you’re super oily I haven’t a doubt you’ll like it. I find it wears best in the Summer for me when I am a bit oily but now, when my skin is drier, it accentuates my flaky areas. It buffs out to a very smooth, even appearance if you’re oily and has an incredible airbrushed, brightening finish with excellent coverage. I find the finish much like the original It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation without any illuminating glow. I expected some sort of sparkle or luminosity when I originally tried it but I get full matte without any glow. It wears quite well for a solid five hours before showing signs of fading while providing an oil absorbing matte finish through that wear.
Light and Medium
You get a Heavenly Luxe Double Airbrush Foundation Brush with the set to use with the powder. This is a flat top fibre brush that you can use wet or dry to buff color on. This a really well made brush with synthetic bristles that do not shed. It’s positively perfect for use with the foundation as it buffs the powder into a soft, silky airbrushed finish on skin!
If you love the original formula you’re bound to love this especially if you like full coverage powder foundations. If you’re drier, do beware and prep well prior to use for the best finish.
The star of this collection is obviously the CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush which I’ve already reviewed and and swatched in a prior post. This is a soft, velvety texture with excellent pigmentation. It’s actually brand new to this set and available exclusively at QVC.com until 12/31 so you get to preview it first in the set. If you’d like to hear more about it see my review post here.
Another new item in this set is the Hello Lashes! Extensions Mascara which looks a lot like my beloved It Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Volumizing Mascara. It supposedly contains melted nylon fibers which give it a very thick texture. I actually prefer the original Hello Lashes but this performs in quite a similar fashion giving lashes length, volume, and fullness with a formula that doesn’t give lashes a stiff or crunchy set. The brush finished a bushy bristled brush with comb-like spikes and a spiked ball at the end. The ball at the end catches hard to reach inner lashes. I find the brush looks a lot like the Hello Lashes one but performs a little different since it acts like a comb even though it looks like a traditional bushier brush. I get a lot of length from it and some fairly nice volume. It doesn’t flake or smudge on my drier eyes and removes easily at the end of the day!
The It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You is definitely a deal and will make an excellent gift for makeup lovers as it comes housed in large, gorgeous box ready for gifting! I realize it seems early for holiday shopping but I’m positive moms and makeup lovers will adore this set!
Definitely worth a purchase.
It’s available now at QVC.com at this price TODAY only.
