Ever use IT cosmetics?
I purchased an IT TSV on the Q a couple of months ago. Since I had other makeup to use up first, I waited to try the foundation until today. I was soooooo very disappointed. The only redeeming quality of the foundation was the spf factor of 50. The brush that came with it was really nice, too, but that’s all.
In the light of day, I looked ridiculous.The foundation was so thick and yet it didn’t even cover a sun spot on my face. So many people love IT cosmetics, but sad to say I feel I wasted my money and won’t be buying IT again. I’m going back to my Avon foundation which goes on smoothly, covers well, and costs much less.
What has been your experience with IT? Love it or hate it?
The Q is having a TSV on IT cosmetics today. It is a lighter foundation formula.
Personally I use Jane Iredale because it is mineral makeup and has many benefits. I am going to try this TSV to check it out. Just FYI.
I use many of IT products, started with the bye bye pores powder, found it to be fantastic, and the CC cream, has better coverage than my Estee Lauder. I didn’t care for the mascara. But would generally endorse her products. Also Like Laura Geller on the Q.
Sounds like you might have bought the wrong shade. I use many It products including Celebration foundation and Celebration with illumination. I love Celebration foundation, but the illumination is the wrong shade for my skin. My skin looks flawless and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Are you using an It brush? Her brushes are amazing. What about a primer? A good primer is important with any foundation. Keep in mind her foundation is buildable. Start with a light application. I am not the type to put on makeup when I am staying home for the day. Celebration feels so good on my face. I even apply it on lazy days. Love, love, love It!
Flyb2, I have not tried IT but have noticed their advertising. I would love a great foundation, my favorite used to be Prescriptives. I like coverage, but it need to look natural and not smell bad.
The comments below have been great. Think I will pass on IT.
Did any buy Lancomes Foundation concealer stick? Any thought about it for 50ish age skin?
I recently purchased the Bye bye under eye, bye bye redness, and poreless powder. I got a free sample to the cc foundation cream with it. In total is was about $90.
I saw sooooo many videos and testemonials that were glowing, that I thought I had found the solution to my makeup problems. I am 34 and begining to have some creasing under the eyes (not much) but always have dark circles. The Bye Bye under eye, did not cover my circles at all. The Maybeline drugstore brand does better. A tiny bit, used as they say did nothing. To make it cover, I had to use a lot. No matter the amount, it hung in every crease and crevace and looked terrible.
The Bye Bye redness and the CC foundation, were a big dissapointment. It looked terrible, and provided no coverage, or you have to put on a lot and then look horrible in the sunlight.
The poreless powder looked like someone threw cornstach on my face.
I researched this makeup for days, and watched so many videos, and it worked so perfectly on the videos, but I think it must be the lighting and cameras, because this makeup is not even as good as any drugstore brand I have used.
Huge waste of money! so dissapointed!
Yesterday I tried my Celebration Illumination SPF50 foundation again and applied it as lightly as possible. The results were better, but it still settled in the wrinkles. I realized that the cream I used to moisturize my skin before applying it made a huge difference than the cream I used previously. The first time it was like applying cement to my face, and this time it went on much more smoothly. The eye makeup, however, was like applying putty and I looked like a raccoon even with a little bit.
I use IT Cosmetics, the Celebration Foundation Illumination. I think the Celebration Foundation is their best seller so I’d recommend to start out trying that one first this foundation is like a powder but will cover everything you need covered & not look like you have anything on, but beautiful skin! Don’t let one bad example of a foundation break you on the entire line. She does have some great things & has a great heart, you can see that every time she is on air. Her eye liners are terrific as well. I have not been a fan of their Bye Bye UnderEye & a couple other products, but others love it, prime example of they can’t make everyone happy all the time. Good luck on the search for a foundation! ??
I gave my foundation to a friend. Did not match my skin tone. I would like to try the lipstick, however there are not a variety colors.
I love It Cosmetics. I have found that less is more on these products which make them last a lot longer. I have been pleased with everything I have purchased from It Cosmetics. Try using less and seeing if this helps. Good luck
I returned almost all IT cosmetics. I have a great brush and a great lip conditioner. That is all. The makeup is too thick and does not stay on.
Over the years I have used a lot of IT products but never the foundation. IT Cosmetics foundations are super full coverage (which is not what I look for) and will even cover tattoos which is probably the reason the entertainment industry loves this line. I really like the eye products and LOVE the lip gloss. It doesn’t bleed, isn’t tacky and is very moisturizing.
Everytime I see a presentation, I’m always tempted to purchase it. The makeup in the packaging and bottle looks really pretty. And, the vendor sounds convincing. What stops me is the fact that the faces of the models always look so chalky and have an unnatural greyish tinge. The makeup also looks VERY thick. It almost looks like funeral makeup.
I’ve been using NYX foundation. So far, I like it. It’s creamy and goes on smoothly.
If you do, please let us know how you like it.
I used to use Almay eye products until I had allergic reactions. It is supposed to be hypoallergenic but really isn’t. Almay’s eyeliner colors were limited, yet the prices were rather high. After reading reviews on Avon’s eyeliners, I took a chance and tried them. I haven’t had one allergic reaction to their eye products and I was so happy. Great assortment of colors and no more itchy swollen eyes. They have sales all the time and the prices are affordable. They have an outlet section where products can be purchased at even greater savings. And no, I’m NOT an Avon rep. I just love many of their products. :womanlol:
The IT foundation that didn’t work for me is the Celebration Foundation in Light.
The Avon product that I love is Ideal Flawless Cream to Powder foundation in Shell. It only has an spf of 15, but it goes on so easily and looks much more natural than the IT product. It has 4.5 star reviews, reg. price is $12.00, but I wait and buy it on sale at around $7.99 or less.
Which foundation was this? Ive been wanting to try, I have eyeliner/eyebrow pencil not bad.
