The It Cosmetics New Year Your Most Beautiful Skin ($59.94) debuts today as a QVC Today’s Special Value. The It Cosmetics New Year Your Most Beautiful Skin includes five full size It Cosmetics products and will be available as a one time shipment or you can sign up for auto delivery. If you do sign up for auto delivery you’ll get the same set for $49.54 which includes ALL of the same items in all of the same shades (including the lipstick color) sans the Buffing Foundation Brush. The auto delivery can be canceled at any time.

This set brings together some new items as well as some old favorites in new packaging.

Take a look!

The set includes:

I’ve embedded links above so you can click each for a full review of the products should you wish as this is a brief recap of what I’ve already said in prior posts.

The two newest products in this set are the CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream and Blurred Lines Smooth Fill Lipstick. I also felt like the new CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder is slightly reformulated and a different texture than Celebration Foundation Powder so you might consider this “new” as well even though it has many of the same incidents as Celebration.

For me the new CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream is a hydrating more sheerer version of Bye Bye Undereye Concealer. It’s creamy and hydrating yet less emollient and pigmented than Bye Bye. It comes with a cooling tip applicator which is a nice touch but personally not something I use, I prefer just squeezing a little on the back of my hand and dabbing under my eye versus applying from the applicator. If you dislike Bye Bye because you feel it’s too thick, you’ll likely love this new formulation as it is sheerer and much more hydrating without being as thick or as emollient as the original formula.

Blurred Lines Smooth Fill Lipstick is a delightfully lightweight, sheer my lips but better lipstick that’s lightly hydrating. This is one of my favorite products in the set and I’m happy to report It Cosmetics will be launching a trio of shades shortly, sold together, on QVC. If you like barely there lipstick products that enhance the look of your own natural lip color you’re sure to love it.

It Cosmetics CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder has many of the same ingredients as Celebration and some might consider it a repackaged version but the texture feels quite different. I don’t really like Celebration because it feels a bit mask-like on my drier skin. Airbrush Perfecting Powder was considerably more powdery yet not chalky. It didn’t cling to drier areas on my face and seemed to have a lighter, sheerer look that Celebration did not have for me! It’s kinda of a retake on Celebration’s formula that’s easier for me to wear.

It Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact is a repackaged, new, travel friendly version of It Cosmetics CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream. The main difference between the two products are the sizes (this is 0.47 versus the 1.08 oz tube) and the packaging. This new compact has a push to release mechanism that gives you just the right amount of the CC Cream to apply. The chunky compact housed a sponge and mirror which makes it travel friendly. I do not think this packaging is replacing the tube so no worries, it’s merely an extension on the tube and gives you an option to travel with it should you like. I imagine at some point they will release as an individual purchase and hopefully the price will reflect in the smaller size!

It goes without saying that the brush in the set is fabulous. It Cosmetics makes some great makeup brushes and this is testimony to that. This has soft, synthetic bristles with a sturdy handle and a slight slant which makes buffing either the powder or CC cream into your skin an easy task. It creates an airbrushed look that’s smooth, soft, and flawless.

The total cost of the set after shipping and taxes is $67.16 which means you’re paying $13.43 per item. This goes without saying is an excellent value. The powder and CC Cream might not be something you currently need in your stash as maybe you already have a huge old compact of Celebrations and a big old tube of the CC Cream in your current rotation. I do think it’s worth purchasing though just to try out the eye cream and lipstick so you can always stash away the powder and CC Cream or gift them away.

The It Cosmetics New Year Your Most Beautiful Skin is a great way to introduce yourself to It Cosmetics if you haven’t yet tried the brand before. For fans already, it’s a great value that brings together some great new and old favorites!

The It Cosmetics New Year Your Most Beautiful Skin is available today at the introductory price of $59 for one day only at QVC.com.

    Picked mine up this morning! On another note, mine was $72 after tax and shipping. Location location location I suppose!

  • liz

    thanks for the review. I did order this. I liked the pigmentation of the Bye Bye but I wasn’t thrilled with the ingredients and my undereye makeup kind of ran into it so I’m hopeful this is improved. I’m not really a powder girl but will try this and was interested in the CC cream. Also, as you said, their brushes rock. Absolutely awesome. Hope this is good.

    • Isabella Muse

      hiya liz I hope you like it. I’m not for powder either, seems the formula has improved a bit with this versus Celebration though! Let me know how you do, I’d be curious to hear your thoughts on the set!

  • mary

    I have combo/oily skin I currently use Benifits hello flawless powder and foundation. Is this going to be something I will like? I usually try medium coverage

  • Dee

    I didn’t get it as it would have been over $70 after shipping and tax. But I’m excited to hear IT will have a lip trio soon of the new lip product! I’ve become a recent fan of the IT lippies. Glad to hear you liked this powder better than Celebration as that didn’t work for me. This might and I’m always looking for a good finishing powder.

    • Isabella Muse

      ouchie! πŸ™ sorry Dee! They’ll start selling these items individually shortly I’m sure!

  • Ame

    I got it yesterday and it is AWFUL. I returned it. I ADORE the regular CC cream, I stockpile it in fact. I love their brushes as well. But the CC eye has NO coverage, won’t layer with the regular CC cream, and has what can only be considered GLITTER in it. I still needed concealer even with both products on. It was as though the CC eye removed the CC face or just thinned it out. The powder is ORANGE and DARK. It looks oompaloompa, and I ordered Fair. It should be translucent. It was cakey and awful. The brush is about the only positive in this set because the CC in the compact is gimmicky and wasteful, and the lipstick contains castor oil which is cheap filler garbage.

    Going back.

        • Isabella Muse

          sorry to hear it Ame. I really enjoyed the set especially the lipstick πŸ™ Thank god for QVC’s good return policy! PHEW!

        • NoelAnn

          Ame i just tried mine and found the same experience you did. except i liked the lip stick. its not going on evenly. left a review on the cc compact thread. will try again tomorrow with moisturizer and primer then the cc cream. hopefully that will fix it.

          truly disappointing. I had to exchange my shade which was a huge hassle i had to have about 10 email exchanges and 4 calls to qvc to do it.

          i think i’m btwn their fair and light. really wanted to love this. even ignored the snail stuff… figured i’d try. i’ll come back tomorrow and see if it’s any better. i must be doing it wrong!

  • Becky

    I got mine today after work and promptly wiped off my makeup and tried this all out.. I’m happy with it so far!

    The delivery system of the CC cream reminds me of the Kate Somerville moisturizers, it doesn’t bother me at all. I think there’s an Asian BB cream that also uses that method but I can’t remember which one haha it’s more convenient for travel though, even if it’s half the size of the tube (hopefully if it’s sold on its own, the pricing is different).

    I didn’t put the CC cream on my eye area, just the actual CC eye cream, and I’m pretty happy with it. I’ll need just a dab of tarte Maracuja concealer over the darkest spot but I’m used to putting way more effort into covering these circles.

    I did a light dusting of the powder and I’m happy with it.. I’m wearing it all tomorrow to work (at sephora) so fingers crossed for nothing cakey or melty! Loved how the lipstick felt and the brush is of course, amazing.

  • katie soy

    this sold out before i was able to get it and they would not add me to the waiting list. i so hope they sell again even if it’s not as discounted. would still buy it. any suggestions?

  • Nicole

    I really love this set! I am very fair skinned and this is just perfect for everyday natural look. Add a little blush and Tightline Waterproof Full Lash Length Black Primer and go to the grocery store, I bet you will have someone come up to and say how beautiful your skin is. πŸ˜‰
    I skipped the CC+ Cream today and just used a light coat of the CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder and I really like it on it’s own over the IT Serum Primer! It looks like my natural skin, but even and any imperfections are blurred and not very noticeable. ☺️ Oh and that CC+ Blurred Lines Lipstick, is just fantastic and I don’t usually even like lipstick! Of course the brush is fantastic as all my IT brushes are. 😊

  • Susan

    So far this set has been great for me! I have dry, sensitive skin with a little rosacea and the CC cream covers everything well with one pump from the compact. I only seem to need a little of the powder to set it. The brush with this set is great! Does not seem to settle into my fine lines around my eyes like other BB and CC products I have tried.

    The IT Celebration foundation was such a major miss for me, I almost didn’t try this.

    Wish the lip color was a little darker, but the consistency is nice and hydrating. Looking forward to seeing some other shades!

  • Karin Carlson

    I totally agree with Ame. I think it eye cream did have glitter in it and when I went outside it looked even worse…..yellow and sparkly. The powder was super drying. But I did love love love the lipstick. Sadly $70 plus was too much for just a lipstick so back it went. This set was very disappointing for me.

  • Sara

    I just got mine yesterday and so far, I’m loving it. The packaging of the CC+ is amazing. It’s so good, I’d like to take it apart when I’m out and see if I can reuse it with another foundation. . hah. Really though, I like that you have a wide swath of plastic to swirl your brush around in (much better than the back of my hand).

    The lipstick is a flattering shade, the brush is soft, and I thought the eye cream and powder were great. I do like the CC powder better (I think its only available in the bronzer/blush/cc powder palette). All in all, a wonderful value. I think IT cosmetics is one of the most innovative cosmetic companies out there, in my opinion.
