I absolutely love trying new products from brands that I've never used before, so when this trio of best selling IT Cosmetics products arrived from Cult Beauty, I couldn't wait to give them a try. I'm sure you're dying to know my thoughts, so I'll jump right in with my review.
First up is the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream* which I've heard lots about and to me, is the stand out product from what I got. I thought that this would be on the thicker side, but it's super easy to blend and looks natural on the skin. If you've got oily skin or you don't like your base on the dewier side, then maybe consider trying out the Oil-Free Matte version as this is very radiant and even though I've got a dry complexion, I still had to powder this one down. It offers a good amount of coverage and can be built up to conceal any redness or blemishes you have. When I first swatched my Fair shade I was worried that it was going to be far too light, but it oxidises slightly on skin over the first hour you've applied it and once I applied my bronzer and blusher, it ended up being a good match.
When looking for an under eye concealer, I like something lighter than my foundation shade to ensure that it not only conceals any discolouring I have, but to brighten too. I thought that the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer* would be the perfect offering for this, but we have to talk about the shade range too. The shade I got which is the lightest one is super light (like it's nearly white), however upon inspecting the swatches online, the next shade up which is Medium would have been far too dark - that's something to note. This concealer offers an amazing amount of full coverage, you only need a small amount to cover everything and it's by far the thickest concealer I've ever used.
I love trying a cult favourite mascara, but as I'm super fussy, I always wonder how much I'll actually enjoy it. I've just cracked open the IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara* and from first application, I was impressed. It lengthened, added volume and holds a curl, the only down fall is that the longevity isn't great, but it has to be mentioned this could be down to the super hot weather we're having in the UK. The brush is a lot thinner than what I'm used to, so the precision is great. The scent of the mascara is quite potent, so those with sensitive eyes may need to be aware of this when applying and removing as I've found that my eyes have started to get sore and irritated whenever I used it.
On the whole, I have been impressed with IT cosmetics and would continue to try out more of their products in the future. Their simple, yet sleek packaging is aesthetically pleasing, but the CC cream has been a firm favourite this Summer.
