IT Cosmetics New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin! Five-Piece Collection Review

IT Cosmetics New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin! Five-Piece Collection

The IT Cosmetics New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin! Five-Piece Collection was QVC’s Today’s Special Value on Monday, January 19, 2015.

It contains five brand new worldwide launches, taking the power of skin care and coverage innovation to a whole new level! The products are: CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream, CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact, CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder, Blurred Lines Smooth-Fill Lipstick, and the CC+ Angled Buffing Foundation Brush. Together, it’s your anti-aging skincare, SPF 50+ and full coverage for your most beautiful skin!

I was lucky enough to receive a sample of these products to review.  Here’s what I think:

New! CC+® Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream — helps conceal and hydrate the under eye area.  It has a unique Cold Spoon Technology™ cooling tip which feels fantastic on tired, puffy eyes! It is formulated with hyaluronic acid, peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, silk and grape seed oil.  It is full coverage, but a little goes a long way.  I squeezed some out with the tip under my eye, and I got enough to cover my whole face! It looked, great, though!  

New! CC+® Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact is IT’s popular CC+ Cream in an innovative airless dispensing compact! With one push of a button, this compact releases a precise amount of CC+ cream, giving skin care, sun protection and full coverage with each application. This compact is easy and fun to use.  Just press the button to dispense the cream and apply with a brush or fingers.  It covers so well and feels great on my skin.  And it has SPF 50!

New! CC+® Airbrush Perfecting Powder is a lightweight, hydrating powder that is formulated to help erase the look of fine lines and pores, leaving skin with the look of airbrushed perfection! Formulated talc-free and infused with hydrolyzed silk, hydrolyzed collagen, niacin and peptides, you can wear this powder over makeup or clean skin.  It blends very well and really reduced the look of fine lines and pores.  I use it over the CC Cream for work, when I want more coverage, but alone when I just need to look a little polished before I leave the house for errands.

New! Blurred Lines™ Smooth-Fill Lipstick helps lessen the look of lip lines and adds color to lips, giving a natural-looking, pretty pop of color. This lipstick is formulated with nourishing ingredients including shea butter, jojoba, grape seed extract, cherry oil and hyaluronic acid. It is very moisturized, but is such a pretty, natural color that will look great on all skin tones. 

New! CC+® Angled Buffing Foundation Brush is an ultra-luxe, plush makeup brush that makes application simple and effortless. Custom-cut by hand and made with over 80,000 cruelty-free hairs, this brush flawlessly buffs makeup to help visually erase the look of pores and fine lines, airbrushing skin to perfection. This brush is so soft!  It can be used for the CC cream and/or the powder.  It’s very luxurious and apply makeup so smoothly.  LOVE!

At the moment, this collection is no longer on sale on QVC, but the individual items will hopefully be available individually soon.  You can purchase other amazing IT Cosmetic products on and

Perfect The Look of Your Skin With New Skincare and Foundation

Flawless skin can be achieved with great skincare to treat it and healthy makeup that also treats as it conceals blemishes.

The following are new products that I have been testing (sent to me for my honest opinion).

Zensation NEW Super Nourishing Cream SPF 50
Zensation NEW Super Nourishing Cream SPF 50

Looking for that effortless everyday protection? Zensation NEW Super Nourishing Cream SPF 50 ($85.00) shields, hydrates, and nourishes your complexion with intensely moisturizing botanicals and marine extracts. Scentless Camomile Extract infuses skin with moisture, and Sea Fennel Concentrate from coastal plants provides a natural skin guard. Dry skin is quenched and refreshed instantly and protected for hours. Multifunctional Salicylic Acid Ester gently exfoliates to give your skin a refined, smooth texture.

What I think:  This is a luxurious cream! I have noticed that it is very hydrating, but not greasy.  It is really light.  I think this is a good cream for all year long.

Algenist’s NEW Retinol Firming & Lifting Serum
Algenist’s NEW Retinol Firming & Lifting Serum

The new Algenist Retinol Firming & Lifting Serum ($98 USD) is scientifically formulated to restore skin’s firmness while minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin summer-ready and radiant. Alguronic Acid – Algenist’s patented ingredient extracted from Microalgae – is joined together for the first time with a superior retinol to deliver accelerated results by gently exfoliating and stimulating the skin surface to smooth texture and imperfections while reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

The results?

·         Measured and visible reduction in the appearance of wrinkle length and depth

·         Visible improvement in the appearance of skin firmness, tightness, tone and suppleness

·         Dramatic improvements in skin smoothness and softness creating a porcelain-like complexion

·         The radiance and glow of healthy looking skin

Results are noticeable in just 10 days with long term results visible in a mere 28 days.

What I think:  I really like this serum.  I haven’t used a lot of retinol because my skin is sensitive.  I use this once a day or every other day depending on how my skin reacts to it.  But, I really like the results. My skin is smoother and my fine lines are less noticeable.  I am a big fan of the Algenist brand and they are always introducing innovative products like this one!

Pür Minerals CC Cream with SPF 40
Pür Minerals CC Cream with SPF 40

Pür Minerals introduces their new CC Cream with SPF 40 ($38.00 USD). Pür’s CC protects, corrects and perfects skin’s appearance with clinically advanced, plant based ingredients. This silicone-free formula works to erase brown spots, blemishes, redness and fine lines while balancing uneven skin tone.

Pür’s CC Cream is formulated with two unique ingredients:

DERMAPUR® HP – a special complex extracted from meadowsweet that’s rich in clarifying phenolic acids.

CLARISKIN II® – a unique agent made from wheat germ that targets the look of discoloration with key antioxidants.

Available in four shades: Light, Medium, Tan, and Dark

What I think:  I am always curious about BB and CC creams.  I love skincare and makeup combined.  But I find that the colors are off a lot of the time and they are very thick.

I like this one.  I received it in light.  It is too light for me now, but will be perfect for the winter time.  It is not too thick.  It applies nicely and covers really well.  And, it is not orange-hued, which a lot of the creams are.

Pür Minerals is available at ULTA Stores nationwide, professional spas and physician offices and online via
