I’m always excited to get news of an IT Cosmetics Collection. The “New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin” Collection is the Today’s Special Value on QVC and I was lucky to get an advance preview. Even if I hadn’t, this kit is one that I would order.
The New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin! Six-Piece Collection includes:
- CC+ Veil Cushion Compact Foundation with an additional refill cartridge
- Blurred Lines Lipstick in Je Ne Sais Quoi (New shade)
- CC+ Creme Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi (New shade)
- Angled Radiance Creme Brush
- Heavenly Luxe Dual-Ended Complexion Perfection Brush
If you haven’t tried a “cushion compact” foundation yet, the difference from that and a traditional foundation is that the foundation is contained in a sponge (“cushion”). I tried the CC+ Veil Cushion Compact Foundation (you can read my full review here) and fell in love. I love the light feel on my skin. You can apply this cushion foundation with the sponge applicator, but I prefer the Heavenly Luxe Dual-Ended Complexion Perfection Brush. That way you can “stipple” the foundation (plus–so much more sanitary!).
In terms of shade selection, I have both the light-medium and medium shades of Celebration Foundation and have used the Medium in the cushion foundation and it is a good match. I haven’t experienced oxidation with this foundation. Since I don’t need a full coverage foundation, my cushion compact lasted quite a while, but I certainly went through it faster than I would a normal foundation. For this reason, I like that they are including a refill cartridge with this collection.
This was my first time trying the CC+Vitality Brightening Creme Blush and this is a product that I can recommend. The new shade is a very pretty spring pink. You can apply with the Angled Radiance Creme Brush, which works beautifully and gives the most precise placement.
The Blurred Lines Lipstick in Je Ne Sais Quoi is also a new shade of pink. This is a hydrating formula that feels good on the lips. Like the blush, this shade is a light, spring pink, flattering on most skin tones. It looks very natural on me.
The IT Cosmetics New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin Collection is available for one day at a special price on QVC (while supplies last), on Saturday, January 16th. Will you be picking this kit up? Let me know in the comments! Have questions on it? Give me a shout on Twitter… @Beauty411!
