I recently read on FYI Beauty that Boots is now selling IT Cosmetics and so thought it was time for an IT Cosmetics post! QVCUK was the first company to launch IT Cosmetics in the UK and last year, I snapped up one of the sets containing the IT Cosmetics CC Creme Blush and the No 20 Heavenly Luxe Airbrush Blush Brush.
The CC Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi is one of my favourite products for when I want to make my face look really fresh and healthy with minimal effort. It is also wonderful in summertime on days when you want just the lightest hint of make-up.
Interested in reading about more IT Cosmetics products? You can read my other posts on IT Cosmetics products here. You can also search under Faves, Hauls & Brands/Brands on the menu bar to read about IT Cosmetics or other brands featured on the site.
I came across this ’20 Beauty Questions’ make-up tag on a make-up and lifestyle blog calledAmber&Amethyst(which she found on Beautify Brooke). Here are my answers to the make-up tag. Hope you enjoy reading the post!
I’ve pasted the questions at the end of the post, so feel free to let me know your answers in the comments section below. I always love finding out about other people’s favourite products and make-up stashes:o).
QVC UK started selling IT Cosmetics last year and since then, I have been eager to try out some of their products. As of last week, QVC UK started selling the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream as part of a special 4 piece collection. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this product (Emilynoel83 loves it), along with the other items in the collection, and so I couldn’t resist ordering it for myself. The collection was also available last weekend for a ‘Today’s Special Value’ deal of £47.89, rather than £65, as part of QVC UK’s Beauty Weekend. So I just had to get it!
I thought I’d do a post showing what the collection looks like and giving a quick overview of the products inside. I’ve just received the set and not yet had a chance to play around with the products. I might do a few other posts providing more information on what I think of the products once I’ve used them and more detailed product pictures (let me know in the comments section if you would like to see these types of posts).
I mentioned some time ago in a ‘sneak peek’ post (read more here) that I had purchased several products from the Benefit brow range. This post will focus on one of the products: the Ready, Set, Brow! 24 Hour Setting Gel. When I had a brow lesson at the House of Fraser counter, the make-up artist used this product on my brows straight after she used the Goof Proof Pencil (click here to read my post on this pencil) to define, shape and set my brows. I really loved how defined, yet natural, this product made my brows look and purchased it some time after when Debenhams had a 10% off beauty event sale.
Here are some exciting details on upcoming collections and products which I have come across this week:
Kat Von D make-up is now available in the UK and Ireland! The brand is available exclusively from Debenhams online. You can see the products here.
QVC UK is now stocking Essie nail polish. I am a huge fan of Essie nail polishes and so I was super excited to hear that QVC is now stocking the brand. QVC often has incredible offers and exclusive shades and so I am looking forward to see what products they release. You can view the Essie QVC UK pages here.
If you were a fan of the highly coveted Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, then you might be excited to hear that the brand are planning to release a number of other Sweet Peach products. Products mentioned on the Too Faced Instagram pages include: the Mini Sweet Peach Palette (sneak peek here), the Sweet Peach Glow Palette (sneak peek here) and the Papa Don’t Peach Blush Palette (sneak peak here). Too Faced has also announced that they will be re-releasing the Sweet Peach Palette again in November (see more here). Exciting!!!!
If you are on the lookout for a new mascara, all Kiko mascaras are currently reduced to £3.90. That’s right, £3.90! I’m not sure how long the offer will last, so it’s worth having a look if you have always fancied trying Kiko mascaras. The offer is available in store and online. You can view Kiko mascaras here.
