IT Cosmetics IT's Your Top 5 Superstars and More QVC Today's Special Value 11.11.17

IT Cosmetics will have their last Today's Special Value on QVC for the year coming up on November 11, 2017 and it's a real good one!! This may be one of my favorite kits ever by them! A great way for people new to the brand and die hard fans alike to get a lot of quality makeup for minimal money. Read on for my thoughts and more.

Just in case you don't know, a Today's Special Value on QVC means a product or a kit (like this one) is put together at a crazy low price that usually defies the laws of math in best possible way (aka you save a lot of money!!!) The kit is only available for one day, sometimes earlier if they do release a pre-order but after the "TSV Day" the price will go up, so it makes sense to grab it while being offered! If you search for it on, it is already up for sale!

Here is what IT Cosmetics says about this TSV:
"IT Cosmeticsʼ IT’s Your Top 5 Superstars and More! 6-Piece Collection gives you the power to experience innovative, problem-solving products that giveyou life-changing results for beautiful-looking skin, lashes, brows and lips! QVC item #A299080"

Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment 
Them: "Featured in a beautiful rose shade, your lip-loving innovation gives you intense hydration, plus a natural-looking pretty flush of color—and is infused with essential butters, oils, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants."

Me: The metallic component this treatment lives in is so, so pretty. This lip treatment is quite moisturizing and I really enjoy using it! The rose color is a perfect shade a pinky-rose that is not too dark. Pigment is more on the sheer side, but still so pretty. The color isn't long wearing, but it does not claim to be long wearing or staining. I like all the ingredients inside that help fight my pesky lip lines. This treatment is also good to use at nighttime to help rejuvenate the lips!

Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil
Them: "Your original brow phenomenon is infused with a blend of brow-loving ingredients including biotin and saw palmetto, and features a unique oval tip that mimics the look of real hair! This revolutionary long-wearing pencil adheres to skin, and comes in one universal shade that adjusts to all hair colors."

Me: Such a fantastic brow product. I have gone through quite a few of these over the years. The universal color changes based on pressure used. Since my brows are so light, I barely use any pressure at all the match my color. I like that the formula is easy to use, looks natural, sticks to my brow hair and well as skin around my brows since my tails are so thin I try to make them look thinner, and also it wears all day.

CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream 

Them: "Your bestseller is your one step for color-correcting full coverage, anti-aging skincare and SPF 50+ broad-spectrum sunscreen! This multitasking beauty miracle helps to cover the appearance of imperfections for your most flawless- looking complexion."

Me: I am so so so so so so so so so beyond happy they included the original CC Cream and not the Illumination version in this kit!!! YAY!!!!! IT Cosmetics CC Cream is one of my HG (holy grail) makeup items. Another product where I've gone through countless tubes through the years since it debuted in 2013. My perfect shade is a mix of FAIR and LIGHT as I hope for a "Fair-Light" shade to be released. Not only does this cream build up to full coverage to cover everything, I love that it has such high SPF in it, wears all day and has an array of skincare ingredients inside as well! Plus, it comes in a pump which just makes my life easy!!! If I'm traveling really light, I can skip moisturizer with them and also build this up to not need concealer sometimes. I will say, since my skin is on the combination-shine prone side, I absolutely MUST use a primer and powder to set this. Luckily, an awesome powder also comes in this kit (see below) and if you have similar skin and want a fantastic primer to go with it (sold seperately) I strongly recommend you check out IT's Bye Bye Pores Primer if you can.

NEW! Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Foundation Globe Brush
 Them: "Featuring an ultra-plush, globe-shaped brush head and a luxurious holographic handle, this game-changing brush is easy to use and is designed to help provide an airbrushed look to your skin! It pairs perfectly with your included CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ and Bye Bye Pores Illumination, plus all your other favorite foundations and powders!"

Me: I've never met an IT brush I disliked and I'm always so excited to add more new brushes to my collection! I like that the hairs are synthetic and cruelty free (sorry but rubbing real animal hair on my face just weirds me out!) and that their brushes are softer than soft and truly make makeup application a joy and pleasure to do. The circley globe shape on this one is unique. The holographic handle is absolutely stunning, coming from someone who is a self-proclaimed holographic addict.

Bye Bye Pores Illumination Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder
Them: "This revolutionary powder combines the benefits of your original best-selling Bye Bye Pores with subtle radiance for airbrushed-looking skin and a lit-from- within glow—all in one compact! Plus, the translucent shade is suitable for all skin types and tones!"

Me: I do prefer the original version of this powder, but I'm happy that this version is also quite lovely! Shine prone me gets very nervous when I see the word "Illumination" in complexion products, but with this, it's cool. The powder sets my makeup and soaks up shine and the illuminating properties give the slightest bit of glow without making me look overly shiny, as long as I don't go heavy handed with it. Another thing I like about the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder is it does not look cakey or settle into my pores or lines. I can even bring this up to my eyeballs to set under eye concealer. The fact that it is pressed also makes it easy to take with me everywhere, mess free!

Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

Them: "In a test, your must-have mascara increased the appearance of lash volume by an average of 500% after just one coat!* Infused with unique Elastic Stretch Technology, it helps stretch the look of your lashes wider and longer. *Results observed in a clinical study"

Me: The Superhero mascara is the blackest of pigment and is buildable to make my super blonde, super short lashes look almost fake and nearly reach my eyebrows. It doesn't bother my sensitive eyes, smudge or flake, which is great. But for some reason, I find that my tubes of this mascara tend to dry out faster than other mascaras I have. Not quite sure why that is, but it is worth mentioning. A trick I discovered is when I feel like the mascara is starting to dry out, I put a couple drops of Lavender Essential Oil into the tube. This helps extend the mascara's life a little bit and the Lavender also helps hair grow. My eyes are okay with this, but if you also have sensitive eyes and want to try, please stay on the side of caution because you really do not want to get essential oils into your eyes, it will burn.

I mixed shades FAIR and LIGHT in the CC Cream. For the kit, you must select just one shade.
