My Beauty Favorites — Week of October 10-16, 2016

As fall goes on, I have been sent some amazing products to review for my hones opinion.

My faves below include makeup that brightens the face, fun luxe eye and cheek colors, plus an amazing oil cleanser, and pomegranate infused skincare:

ittsē Undereye Light-Diffusing Revitalizing Crème ($7.99 USD) — Better than morning coffee, this instantly brightens tired eyes with a combination of light-reflecting ingredients and a delicate cooling sensation for an instantly refreshed feel.

ittsē Soft-Focus Eye Brightening Powder infused with Diamond ($7.99 USD) — Look well-rested and polished with this buttery neutral-toned, light-diffusing powder. Apply over foundation or concealer for a finishing touch, on clean eyelids or undereye as a brightening base, or dust over lashes to keep mascara in place.

Flawless Finish Setting Powder with Hyaluronicittsē Flawless Finish Setting Powder with Hyaluronic and Antioxidants ($8.99 USD) — This silky, translucent finishing powder works magic on all skin tones. The weightless veil formula works to perfect skin and control shine. Skin-smoothing hyaluronic acid spheres help minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines. Wear alone or on top of foundation for a perfect photo finish.

What I think: I love these ittsē products.  They come in pans and they can be used in ittsē’s magnetic palettes.  I love that you can design what is in your palette!

The eye products really brighten my eyes and make me look like I have got way more sleep than I actually have!  The creme is so cooling, it feels amazing and looks amazing under my eyes!  The powder works nicely over the cream, or other foundations to set and brighten.  And the setting powder helps shine and blurs pores and lines.
