I am a QVC junkie and loving “It Cosmetics”

On the set of my new series!!!

 Late at night when I’m tucked under the covers with my little puppy Bella, I absolutely love to zone out and tune into QVC. I get sucked into buying anything they sell from outdoor water fountains. Joan Rivers Caftans to light displays. I love how the hosts can blab on and on about how the color of the product is more of a burnt orange than a copper tone.

If you know me then you know about my obsession with makeup. I have thousands of pieces of makeup. Ten different shades of “Brown” that to me each seem VERY different.  My vast collection spans the gamut of Bobbi Brown, Elf, Stila, Estee Lauder to Mary Kay!  Well after one of my late night QVC binges I came across IT Cosmetics by Jamie Kern.  They have incredible before and after pic of Jamie removing her makeup and revealing her natural uneven complexion. That’s one reason I was so excited when they sent me some of their cosmetics to try.  A lot of companies send me products to review and if I don’t like them then I don’t say anything at all. So,  if I write anything up especially about makeup then you know I am for REAL!!! And, honestly I have to tell you I LOVE this makeup!

You can see pics of me above wearing It Cosmetics in my series coming out soon!

One of my most favorite products is their “Your Skin But Better- CC Cream SPF +50.” I’ve been trying all kinds of foundations up until this point and could never find just the right kind of coverage. I love this coverage so much and most of all I LOVE that it smells like a spa.. its actually reminds me of the Origins  yummy lotion, “Ginger Souffle.” After I apply this coverage and if I’m on camera that day then I set it with the “It’s your full coverage, flawless skin in 30 secs.” I’m not sure if these two products are meant to be mixed.. but that’s how I do it. I also LOVE LOVE the Bye Bye Under Eye Anti Aging concealer, it conceals and is very moisturizing and really stays on most of the day.

My brother actually got the eyebrows in the family- they are black and beautifully arched. I on the other hand have very very light eyebrow hairs so I am always trying new powers, eyeliners, eyebrow stencils you name it. The Brow Power Universal eyebrow pencil is the first waterproof pencil I’ve seen and the only pencil that has allowed me to have a set of eyebrows past 4 hours.  I couldn’t be happier with this pencil. Seriously I could go on and on but I want to mention one more shout out which is their brushes.. they are stiff enough to grab the products but soft enough so it doesn’t just push the the makeup along on your skin. These were my two stand out brushes; The heavenly luxe dual airbrush concealer (which retracts so I don’t get concealer all over the inside of my bag)  and I actually couldn’t find the name of the other one but is a velvety touch and its completely black… (someone let me know the name if you know what I’m talking about.) Oh and one more thing. I use to use a certain mascara from a high end line that SWORE to make your lashes look false. By the end of the day, I always felt like my lashes were crunchy, separated and looked like two small dead tarantulas lining my eyes. The Hello Lashes Extentsions individually coats each lash and makes them appear super long but my lashes are still soft. So that is my review of It Cosmetics!!!  LOVE LOVE so much.

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting
    with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any suggestions? Thank you!
