It Cosmetics Lip Favorites

*samples for review, affiliate links*

I thought it was about time I shared some of my favorite hydrating lip products with you! IT Cosmetics continues to be my very favorite cosmetic brand, but today we’ll just focus on lips. My favorite gloss of all is the Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi. This light milky pink adjusts to your perfect shade, which for me is bright pink. I love the shade! What’s unique about this product is that it’s an anti aging lip serum and lip stain in one. It contains collagen, peptides, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, plum, cherry, argan and avocado oils. It feels luxurious on, and the color lasts.

In Love, Pillow, Darling
IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Butter

The Vitality Lip Flush Butters are a hydrating lipstick, gloss and anti aging lip balm in one. These don’t have the lasting power of the stains, but they are just as lovely. In Love is a neutral berry, Pillow is a warm nude and Darling is a warm pink. These contain the same good for your lips ingredients as the lip stains.

IT Cosmetics Vitality Flush Color Stick and Lip Flush in Je Ne Sais Quoi

The Lip Flush and Color Stick are essentially the same product, just packaged differently. The Color Stick is meant to be used for lips and cheeks. The Vitality Lip Flush is a 4-in-1 product meant to take the place of your anti aging balm, lipstick, hydrating gloss and lasting stain. The Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lip Liner Stain is my go to lip pencil when I remember to use it. I have Pretty In Pink, which works with all of the colors I’ve mentioned today.

Melt Proof Summer Makeup Must Haves

*contains affiliate links, some items sent by pr for consideration, some items purchased by me*

Melt Proof Summer Makeup essentials

My melt proof summer makeup must have products start off with a skin treatment. Boscia No Pores No Shine T-Zone treatment is a lightweight gel lotion that instantly softens the look of pores, mattifies skin, and smooths skin texture. It has a slight scent to it, and you can actually feel a cooling sensation. I wasn’t a huge fan of the effect, but I do like the way it makes my skin look. It is supposed to keep pores and blackheads less visible over time. I haven’t used it long enough to give my thoughts on that.

Once the Boscia treatment has dried I spray Skindinavia’s oil control Makeup Primer Spray on my face. I love this and the original version!

My HG concealer is IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye because it covers everything. I use light under my eyes to cover my ridiculous dark circles,and neutral medium on any blemishes, discoloration and acne scars. It’s quite emollient and thick, so I prefer to use it under my foundation.

The next step in my routine is foundation. L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur foundation contains “opti-blur technology” which is said to instantly blur lines, spots and uneven texture. It’s not quite photoshop in a tube, but it’s pretty darn good! My normally dry skin has been a touch oily this summer, and I’m noticing my pores seem bigger too. Ah, the joys of getting older…. Anyhow, this foundation works best for me if I apply it with my fingers, and pat it on my skin. I start from the center of my face and just pat pat pat, then blend around the edges of my face. It’s very silky feeling, like a silicone primer. When I used it the first time I was certain it would be gone in an hour, simply because it’s so silky and smooth. It didn’t feel like it would hold up in the summer heat, but I was WRONG! This baby lasts all day and then some when I use the primer, and lightly dust my IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores over it.

Once the foundation has had time to set, it’s time to add some color! L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur blush is a really odd product, coming out of the tube in a dry gel-mousse blob. I wouldn’t even attempt to use a brush or sponge with this, fingers work best. It has a silky texture and sets quickly as a stain on the skin. L’Oreal has 3 shades of which I have the brightest, Soft Berry. There is no shimmer in this particular shade. Do you have any warm weather makeup or skin care favorites I should know about?

As you can see, the Fair foundation is too light for me. I usually wear Light in Celebration Foundation. I can use the Light Bye Bye Under Eye under my eyes as a concealer/brightener but it’s too light for concealing blemishes or scarring. I wear neutral medium in concealer.
