Hi Everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving celebrations with your loved ones! Throughout the week, I was a little too active on Instagram because I love the stories feature. I can take you along with me, without having to blow up your IG feed. I was posting daily make-up looks, current favorites, etc. & many of you wanted to know my faves from It Cosmetics, so this one is for you!
My Thoughts on the CC Cream:
This CC cream ($38) is my holy grail & if you can’t tell, it’s actually pretty empty– I use the pump & nothing squirts out, so you better believe I’m going to be cutting it open & using every last bit before tossing it. I keep a travel size for when I travel to LA or wherever I may be going. If I had to pick my favorite product from IT Cosmetics, this would definitely be it. I’m in the shade “light” & I love that it’s lightweight with SPF & looks like real skin after its been applied.
Lately, my skin has been dry, so some thicker foundations & creams have been looking too cakey & tend to separate or will cling to my dry spots, but with the CC cream, my skin has been looking amazing! It’s literally a “your skin, but better” kind of foundation & it’s very easy to blend. I like to use either a real techniques sponge or my sigma F80 brush to apply it. I’ve been loving this foundation/cream so much & literally can’t contain my excitement when people ask me what I’m wearing or when they compliment my skin. I got some family & clients into this & love hearing their positive reviews! It gives a flawless finish to the skin, so I’m in!
A few other favorites from It Cosmetics is their Universal Brow Pencil ($24)– so easy to use & I love that it’s the pencil on one end & the spoolie on the other end so you can brush your hairs & blend the product well. It’s very easy to use & looks incredibly natural. I have blonde hair with red tones (never been colored before) & some pencils just don’t look good on me– they’re either too red or too brown, this one is literally perfect! I’ve included a selfie with a more bold brow & close up eye shot with a lightly filled in brow.
And last but not least, the Confidence in a Cream (2 oz. jar- $48) anti-aging moisturizer! I use this baby every morning before applying my make-up & it revives my dry skin; just let it sit for about 2-3 minutes before applying my primer & then continue on with my everyday routine. Lately, I’ve definitely seen a difference in the way my skin feels. As for the aging properties, I can’t be too sure since I’ve only been using it for about 3 months. I’m only 23, so a girl can only dream that it will get rid of my smile lines & prevent wrinkles under my eyes, right?
