It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum Review & Swatches

It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum is a new hydrating tinted lip serum that contains hyaluronic acid. This isn’t yet for sale individually as it makes an appearance it tonight’s It Cosmetics All About You! Your Customer Favorites Set which is this evenings QVC’s Today Special Value. As you know from my prior post the set goes on sale at 12AM tonight/tomorrow morning and includes four full-size It Cosmetics products including this new Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum for $59 (free shipping).

It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi is shade that has appeared across the board in many, many products from the brand including lip products like It Cosmetics Rose Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment and It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Anti-Aging Lipstick Stain.

You either really adore the shade or it might be too bubble gum pink for you. I actually like it a lot especially the blush products I own that It Cosmetics has created in the shade. Last year, I wasn’t much of fan of the It Cosmetics Rose Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment as the formula wasn’t quite as nice as past lip products that the brand has brought out. This was a balm but the texture wasn’t quite all that great. When I heard they were creating the same formula in a serum lip product I was quite excited as I like It Cosmetics CC Lip Serum Hydrating Anti-Aging Color Correcting Creme Gloss which has a serum-like texture.

It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum arrives in a 0.057 oz metallic pink slim line barrel. I remarked how much I enjoy It Cosmetics’ choice of packaging earlier today in my Lipstick Queen Dating Game Lipstick review. The packaging on these little lip products for the Je Ne Sais Quoi shade is always quite delightful. I’m such a girl because I adore pink.

This is a candelilla wax-based lip serum with other hydrating ingredients that give its a certain creaminess. It does in fact resemble an essence of a sort for your lips. The shade is a milky pale pink, with a runny texture that glides on easily from the small slanted applicator which has tiny wholes that the serum flows from when you twist the base. At first I was quite concerned about the color giving me a zombie look as it applies a paler pink on my lips. It actually morphs with my body chemistry and the customary bright pink Je Ne Sais Quoi pops out. This could be a deal breaker for some though as all in all the color is a hot pink shade that not everyone will love. I like it personally but realize it isn’t something everyone will love.

I thought the texture quite nice with an easy smooth glide on my drier lips. It feels plush and quite hydrating but the wear is a bit shorter as I felt the need to reapply it within an hour but during the wear it seemed to really sooth and soften my dry, cracked lips. I detected no flavor or fragrance in the formula.

If you’re currently waffling on a purchase of the It Cosmetics It’s All About You Customer Favorites Collection March 2018 QVC Today’s Special Value you might want to haul it for the Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum, the brush, and the Sweet Cheeks blush and maybe gift out the CC Cream because if you are anything like me you likely have hundreds of It Cosmetics CC Cream tubes laying around.

Or hopefully It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum becomes available individually really soon!

It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum launches tonight on qvc.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Omgosh this looks lovely on you!! I hope they start to sell it individually . I need this!

  • Brandy

    That shade looks great on you Muse. It’s great for Spring. I’m afraid I’m so pale that bubble gum pink doesn’t work well on me so it’s a pass.

      Aw thanks brandy! I totally understand! Not everyone is into shades like this!

  • ChynnaBlue

    Thank you! I may give this a try when it’s sold individually. Zinc Oxide gives me a terrible skin reaction, so I have to avoid all the IT Cosmetics foundations.
