IT Cosmetics It Girl Beauty Book Volume 2 with 3 Looks

The IT Cosmetics It Girl Beauty Book Volume 2 from QVC is a MUST HAVE!! They took Volume 1 from last year, which was already incredible, and made it even better! I've been waiting for this to be released for months. This is one of the best and most perfect palettes I bought since I started buying makeup years ago. It's truly that good! Read on for my thoughts, review and swatches.

You can do your whole face using the The It Girl Beauty Book. The only additions you need are a mascara and a foundation. The price for everything inside is also incredible. At the time of writing this blog post, it is currently on QVC for $49.98!! Something to know about all IT Cosmetics holiday palettes is that they do not negotiate their incredible formulas for holidays as some brands tend to do. You are getting ten different IT Cosmetics formulas in this book for that price! It's a steal.

Since I got Volume 1 last year, anytime I've went away for a night or a few nights this past year it came along with me since it makes packing makeup such a breeze. The book has held up strong and the formulas still work perfectly. The biggest improvement, in my opinion, of Volume 2 is the addition of a bronzer and less space for a highlighter that last year had. I no longer need to carry a separate bronzer for contouring which is awesome. That, and since highlighter is usually my least used cosmetic item, I just did not need a huge gigantic pan of it in the palette. Volume 2 also sees the addition of IT's universal brow power powder. This is a nice touch but since i need to bring a brow pencil to use it anyway, including it or not has me indifferent because I can just as easily carry a brow pencil. Still, it is a nice touch. This year, there are only three lip colors instead of six from last year, but since I prefer to apply lipstick via bullet, this doesn't bother me either.

To see my review and looks using Volume 1, check out that blog post from last year HERE.

The book comes wrapped, bowed and ready to gift!

The IT Girl Beauty Book folds out to three pages and a mirror.

Page one has three shades of the Bye Bye Under Eye Concealing Pots, FULL SIZE Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder and FULL SIZE of a new shade of Bye Bye Pores bronzer.

Page two has three pans of the Blurred Lines Lipstick, FULL SIZE, Ombre Radiance Blush in "Je Ne Sais Quoi" and a strip of Hello Light Powder Highlighter in a new shade.

Page three includes a strip of a new shade of the brand's SuperHero Eye Foundation, which is meant to replace eye shadow primer, nine eye shadows, of the which contain eight new shades, a Superhero Powder Liner in black and Brow Power Powder in Universal Taupe.

The blush shade is the same as last year. Personally, I love "Je Ne Sais Quoi" so much this doesn't bother me. I really like how they included the Ombre blush as I can pick at the blush to get three additional eye shadow colors as well. You can also use the bronzer and highlighter as shadows if you'd like.
