This means for 24 hours, you can receive a kit full of It products- including 4 new launches!- for the lowest price it well ever be.

Now let's get into the products!

Bye Bye Pores Pressed Power
 It was a dream come true when It Cosmetics released a pressed version of their popular Bye Bye Pores loose powder! This is one of my all time favorite IT Cosmetics products!! I love how this powder mattifies my skin, tackles shine, blurs my pores and lines and leaves my skin looking nearly flawless for hours while treating my skin with anti-aging ingredients such as peptides, silk and hydrolyzed collagen. I have issues with a lot of setting powders caking into concealers and foundations and/or settling into some little lines I have now (side note: grr) and this one does not do any of that. It is completely translucent, and easy to carry with me for touch ups (the compact even includes a handy sponge). This powder is also good to use alone even if you aren't wearing foundation it can blur things out and still help shine.


Bye Bye Pores Blush Airbrush Brightening Blush
This is in the shade "Naturally Pretty" which I find to be universal for all skin tones. It is a beautiful, light, matte, cool toned shade of pink! This blush is SO PIGMENTED!!! You do not want to be heavy handed and a little goes so very far so this blush will last you probably years. Start with a little bit and you can build up until the desired amount of blush is achieved. This is not a stain and didn't last on my cheeks as long as the IT Cosmetics Vitality Cheek Flush Powder Blush Stains (which are my favorite blushes from the brand), but still wore nicely for quite a few hours and left my face with a natural, bright and well put together look. If you like pink toned eyeshadows, this makes a really pretty color on the eyes too, especially in the crease! This blush formula was seen previous in the shade "Je Ne Sais Quoi" in a TSV from last year as part of a face palette.


Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush
IT Cosmetics brushes are all super soft and incredible, yet somehow this brush is EVEN SOFTER than the softest one in my collection! Aside from being cruelty free and made with synthetic fibers which is great, IT Cosmetics brushes make applying makeup so easy even if you are like me and not a makeup artist...they practically do the work for you! Back to this brush. It is domed shaped, much like the Wand Ball Brush by IT but there are more bristles and it feels a bit denser. This is my new current favorite powder brush and now one of my top very favorite IT brushes! I like to press or stipple powder into my skin with a brush or puff  instead of rubbing too much so I don't disturb my foundation under it and this brush allows me to do so very nicely. I like that the bristles are more packed in and not as free flowing as other powder brushes (if that makes sense? I had a hard time wording what I meant)



Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer
Okay so first off, I LOVE the pretty pink and silver tube!! I received this in the shade "Light" which is just a bit too light for me, but the next shade up "Neutral Medium" is a wee bit dark. With the original, I usually mix the 2 shades together but for the sake of the review I stuck to the new version by itself. If you've used the original Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, the shades are the time so that makes it easy.
IT Cosmetics says that this is the BBUE concealer, but now waterproof and "infused with Drops of Light Technology to brighten the look of your skin with soft luminosity!" To be honest, I don't see a huge difference between the original and this new concealer. I think the finish on this one has a little bit more radiance, but not too much where it the illumination is overwhelming on combo skin like mine. It does a nice job at making my eye area look brighter. This is still an excellent concealer, just like the original.
 It is extremely pigmented, doesn't settle into fine lines or cake up and wear all day. My dark circles are oh so very dark, concealer alone never hides them completely without some kind of color correction underneath and again for the sake of this review, in the pictures I didn't use any additional color corrector.
Since I have combination skin and the finish is more on the dewy side, I always must set it with a finishing powder like Bye Bye Pores. Also, a little bit goes super far with this concealer. If you use too much, you probably won't like it because then yes, it will look heavy...so less is more and you can always add if needed.
As you will see in the pictures, if you wanted to this also makes an excellent full face foundation! If I am traveling I  will use BBUE as my foundation so I can get away with packaging less, unless I will be outside then CC cream also MUST come with me for that SPF50!


Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm
I love that IT is doing skincare now! If you missed my review on their Confidence in a Cream, you can read that here. Bye Bye Makeup Cleansing Balm is the second addition to IT's skincare collection. The "3" in 3-in1 is because it is a hydrating cleanser, makeup remover and anti-aging, skin-softening serum!! The jar is HUGE and a little goes a long way, so it will last you a nice while! The balm has a delicious orange scent to it that isn't super strong. I personally LOVE the way it smells. This Cleansing Balm is paraben and sulfate free and including skin care ingredients such as collagen, peptides and antioxidants. The directions state to massage it onto dry skin and then rinse. I use it as my first cleanser when I double cleanse at night, but it would also do a nice job by itself if you don't double cleanse. It removed all my face makeup very easily and effortless and left my skin feeling very smooth. I think dry, mature skin especially will love the hydration benefits of this cleanser. After using it a while, it did not cause my acne prone skin to break out so that is another big plus for me. I was also happy that this balm easily removed all my eye makeup with ease and without burning my sensitive eyes!

This Today's Special Value Kit also contains samples of the Confidence In a Cream I mentioned and the best selling, every so amazing CC+ Cream!

The cleansing balm is clear and powder is translucent, so they don't show up extremely well when swatched- nor should they. The concealer and blush were also swatched heavy without being blended out to show the color.
