It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakthroughs

The It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakthroughs 5 Piece Set launches as the QVC Today’s Special Value (QVC TSV) starting at 12AM EST on QVC and QVC.com. It’s a very exciting set because it includes two brand new launches which are the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blush Poreless Finish Airbrush Brightening Blush and the new It Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm (which I’m in love with!)

The set will be $59.95 and includes 4 full size It Cosmetics products as well as a full-size Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush! Add in the fact that QVC charges a mere $3 to ship any and all beauty products and you have quite the deal.

Here’s your first look at the set.

I haven’t been this excited about an It Cosmetics QVC TSV for a while. Why? Because typically It Cosmetics QVC Today’s Special Value Sets are really, really a great value but they include staple items that as an It Girl I already have tons of like Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and Celebration Foundation. I found the last two It Cosmetics Today’s Special Values were great introduction sets to It Cosmetics if you never tried the brand. However, for those of us that know and love the brand it was still a great value but likely contained products we already use, love, and have plenty of already.

This is why I’m pretty much in lust and all over the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakthroughs Set because not only is it a great way to try out It products for the first time. But for the old school It Girls it features some brand new never before seen products we can try out.

This set includes:

  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer (Choice of shades)
  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blush Poreless Finish Airbrush Brightening Blush in Naturally Pretty (nude pink)
  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Silk Airbrush Poreless Finishing Powder
  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm
  • It Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush

I was lucky enough to receive a press sample for review but I recently ordered another shipment of this set because the new It Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm is not yet available as an individual purchase and I NEED TO NOT RUN OUT OF THIS STUFF! Fans of products like Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm, E.L.F. Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser, and Banila Co Clean It Zero will adore this new cleansing balm. I already did an extensive review of it which can be found by clicking here but I’ll do a brief recap. This is a solid balm cleanser which has a squishy consistency. You can apply it on dry skin, massage in, and add emulsify and break it down. It removes any and all makeup quickly and easily without stripping skin.

Also includes in this set which I reviewed already (click here to find that review) is the new Bye Bye Pores Blush Poreless Finish Airbrush Brightening Blush. This is a sheer, silky blush with a smooth flawless finish that gives skin a gorgeous flush of pink! I’m looking forward to It possibly launching more shades in this formula as it is quite lovely and wearable.

Another new product, I use new loosely, is the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer. Now, this one is actually, in fact, new but the term can be applied loosely reason being It Cosmetics CC Eye Color Correcting Concealer is also an illuminating formula. However, these two formulas are vastly different. The new Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination actually contains Drops of Lights Technology to create a brighter, soft luminosity under eyes. It’s available in your choice of shades when ordering the set but does not contain my standard shade which is Medium Neutral. I tried it in both Light and Medium and both shades were very, very light. I thought Medium was a shade below Medium Neutral. It made me look very pasty sadly and I had to mix it with a darker concealer for the best finish. It does have the same thick, extremely pigmented, emollient texture as the original Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. It does contain mica but it’s way on the bottom of the list and I didn’t notice any shimmer or glow-y effect in the finish. It’s still the same great Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer we all know and love but the shades do seem a little lighter and brighter under eyes which means this will work fantastic as a contouring tool.

And finally the set includes It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Silk Airbrush Poreless Finishing Powder and the It Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush for application. It Cosmetics launched their Bye Bye Poreless Finishing Powder in a solid powder a few months ago so you may not have tried it yet. This is a soft, silky, transparent powder that sets makeup to a flawless finish (sorry, my skin is dry as hell and my swatch looks dry but I promise this formula is very silky :)). I don’t think It Cosmetics Makeup Brushes need any introduction from me! This brush is soooo soft with a sturdy handle. You can use it to apply the pressed powder or the blush in this set.

All in all the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakthroughs is an excellent value. It’s not only a fabulous set for It Girls looking for something new and exciting from their favorite brand but also a great introduction to It Cosmetics!

This one gets a Muse Approval.

I would haul it if I were you!

It’ll be available on QVC.com for $59.95 for one day only. The set is on autoship which means another set will be shipped to you every 90 days with the same exact products at the same price minus the makeup brush! That can also be orders on QVC.com using item number A277858.

Will you be indulging?

    Muse what shade concealer did you swatch? I am not sure if it is light or medium. I normally use light in regular bye bye concealer but not sure if it is too light. Thanks.

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m sorry I forgot to label it. That’s actually medium! I normally use Medium Neutral in the regular line!

      • Kelli Rae

        That is definitely a light medium shade ! I’m happy I saw this before ordering tonight. I was going to order the fair, as I like a lighter color. But this definitely is lighter then their usual shades! Thank you Muse
        Oh I cannot wait for this TSV. They are such amazing values and I’ve been wanting to try the pressed Bye Bye powder, which is $29 alone. I love the way they come packaged as well. It Cosmetics most definitely is one of my faves. I’ve been with them since the beginning.
        Thanks for all of the info รขยยค

        • Isabella Muse

          My pleasure! The shade looked pasty on me where as Medium Neutral is much better a fit so yes, I’m glad you did in order lighter Kelli! ๐Ÿ™‚ My pleasure! Let me know when it arrives and how you like/don’t like (but hopefully like) it ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Kelli

            Muse the medium was perfect for me and thanks for the swatches. You are alway’s such a big help. This kit is just lovely รขยยครขยยครขยยค

          • Isabella Muse

            yay! great! ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy to hear it <3!

  • Robin

    Hmmm no snail slime, so I’ll think about it. Laura Mercier has a new eye palette that I’m drooling over.

  • Elisabeth

    The brush is only reason I would buy this TSV. Illumination under the eye, absolutely no one should wear it if they any lines or puffiness. It make bags appear bigger even if there is a tiny bit of puffiness. Defiantly passing on this one.

    • zVintage Fashionizta

      I agree, illumination under the eyes only brings attention to what you want to hide.

  • Brandee

    So do you think all the concealers run lighter than the original? I might have to buy a darker shade

  • Dee

    I’m going to get it. I went back and read your review on the blush, and it’s such a pretty color. I have the loose powder but would like it in pressed form too. And the brush;)

  • Melissa

    Can’t wait to get this!!!! I love It Cosmetics products! I usually get all their tsv so glad this one has many new products and I love their brushes ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Andi

    Everyone keeps dissing the illuminating eye concealer, but I use a brightener and don’t have an issue with it exaggerating my “eye crinkles”. Think touChe eclat from YSL.

    As always thanks for the review muse. I’ll be picking this kit up.

    • Isabella Muse

      Honestly, I didn’t notice the illuminating finish on this to be honest. I don’t like anything too shimmery under my eyes either so that worried me but I didn’t really see it with this although the shade is way off for me. Medium is very very very light. My pleasure, Andi ๐Ÿ™‚

  • pamela

    I would love to indulge, sadly I live outside the US :-(( But this set looks fantastic!
    I already own the Bye Bye Pores powder and I really like it to set my make up since it’s translucent, very lightweight and does give a blur effect. Really nice ^^
    I’m most interested to try the Bye Bye make up, it sounds really nice! and I am crazy about cleansing. LOL. Thanks for the review, Isabella ^^

  • Jennifer

    Just wanted to let you know that the cleansing balm is available on its own now for $38 on the It Cosmetics website!!
