IT Cosmetics Today's Special Value on QVC!

Hey everyone!
Hope you're having a great day... it'a almost Friday! And Friday, July 27th is also a special day because IT Cosmetics with have the Today's Special Value on QVC!
I got my hands on it early (which you can do if you're a QVC Insider)-- 
it's the Vitality Anti-Aging 5 Piece Collection!
The entire kit is valued at $236.00, but on Friday only- it'll be $59.94. 
If you check it out on QVC's website BEFORE Friday (go to QVC.com & type in A228718)--
you'll notice that the special low price hasn't yet taken effect. 


What comes in the kit?
(You may recognize some items as favorites in my hauls & Shopping List Ideas videos! 
Now that I have this kit-- I have some backups!)
  • Vitality Anti-Aging Brightening Face Disc w/ Blush Stain & Drops of Light Luminizer
  • Vitality Lip Flush 4 in 1 Lip Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi (As seen in this video!)
  • Bye Bye Undereye SUPERSIZE Anti-Aging Concealer (As seen in this video!)
  • Heavenly Luxe Ultra-Plush Jumbo Powder Brush
  • Heavenly Luxe Dual Airbrush Concealer/Foundation Brush
A quick comment on the brushes-- they are SO SO soft! So far I've actually just been using my own brushes with this kit to apply the products, but once I experiment with these brushes, I'll let you know how they do. One brush is a large powder brush, and the other can be used to blend out concealers & foundations. In the case of this kit- you could use it with the Bye Bye Under Eye & apply it wherever you need it on the face... whether it's large areas or more targeted spots. 


Here's the disc- now that my beloved IT Cosmetics "My Sculpted Face Palette" has been discontinued- this is sort of like the new option. This disc is no joke- it's larger than the palm of my hand!
Half of the disc is a matte bronzer... you know how sometimes when you put your brush in a product- powdery fallout goes everywhere? Not with this. This bronzer goes on very sheer, and it's hard to mess it up on your face. I truly think fair to medium skin tones will enjoy this as a contouring powder... however I question how well it'll show up on tan or dark skin. If you're familiar with the "My Sculpted Face Palette"- this bronzer seem to come off more sheer, and a bit less powdery than those in the old palette. You can see the bronzer swatched below (in a not-so-sheer way) on the right side of my hand.


The highlight is a shimmery pearl color... my swatch almost makes it seem metallic, but sheered out, it really doesn't seem so shiny. I love it! While I really enjoy all of the elements in this palette, my favorite part is probably the gorgeous blush! It practically feels creamy. The shade is a GORGEOUS pinky-coral. Overall, the convenience of having all these face products in one disc is great- plus you get a giant mirror which is also nice for travel!


Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer is Supersized in this kit! You can get some more description on this concealer if you click the link that I posted above, but this is a full coverage product. It's marketed as something you can use as a foundation all over your face if you want, but my best experience with this has been as an under-eye concealer. Please be advised- it only takes a LITTLE BIT OF PRODUCT to work! I felt like it was a bit heavy and perhaps prompted a breakout or two when I used it around my nose- keep in mind, I have combination skin that gets oily in the t-zone. If you watch the presentations Friday on QVC, chances are you'll see IT Cosmetics creator Jamie Kern Lima cover up major rosacea with this product live on the air... it's pretty amazing. She just swipes off the makeup on half of her face, then covers it up again. Love it!


And here is one of my FAVORITE LIP PRODUCTS!!! I smell an Emily Award and it's only July! :) 
The Vitality Lip Flush in Je Ne Sais Quoi is fascinating, and if you want to hear more descriptions on this, and 2 other shades that I purchased- click the link that I posted above. When you look at the picture, you'd think it might just be a clear balm. NOPE! It gives you perfect pink lips- the color actually develops on your lips once you apply it. It actually STAINS your lips that color, and it's also super moisturizing! Now that I have an extra after getting this kit, I think I'm going to let my mom try it since she's very concerned with lip products feathering outside the lip line. None of the colors I have in this feather outside your lips! Not a bit! KICK ASS LIP PRODUCT. 


Also- I know I mentioned I've been watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix. I'm trucking through Season 1, and something that I've noticed is that most of the girls seem to have a perfect pink lip going on most of the time. Not baby pink, but more of a berry pink. This lip product duplicates the color and finish perfectly! :) As a whole, I love the makeup on this show.

Bottom Line:
I want you to know about this kit so you can take advantage of Friday's low price! You really get a lot, including some legit brushes that I know I'll be getting some use out of. I truly think you'll come up with at least a couple of MUST HAVES out of this kit, whether it's the 3 in 1 face disc, the full coverage concealer, or the Lip Flush! I'm also partial to the brand's creator, Jamie Kern Lima, because she's a former news anchor! She knows what it takes to look good in HD, so I truly respect her opinions, and the fact that the brand doesn't have a zillion products... she says she creates things slowly to ensure that  everything is top quality. She also developed the line of cosmetics with the help of plastic surgeons- which I also find fascinating! What's your favorite product from this line? What should I try out next? Let me know! :)

  1. It looks great, but I don't think I can splurge on this one since I just got the recent Tarte kit. I wish they'd left out the brushes and made it cheaper because I'd love to try the products!

  3. I absolutely adore the effect The Vitality Lip Flush had on your lips! It's perfect for achieving the PLL lip. I kind of want to add it to my collection. I'm a huge fan of the show and love the girls make up in it.

  8. Hi Emily! I don't often comment, but I have been a loyal viewer of yours for over a year now! I absolutely love your tutorials and reviews!

    I've recently been trying to keep up with your blog on a regular basis as well and, I have to say, I am not dissappointed! You are so lovely to watch and to learn from!

    I was wondering if you could do a video on "Makeup Mistakes and How to Fix Them!". Something like, what happens if you put too much bronzer on or if you go too dark on an eyeshadow or you make a MAJOR error in your liquid eye-liner line! I think this kind of video would be very helpful and I trust you to know how to make your make-up mistakes work for you without having to redo your entire face!

    Thank you for all your lovely videos and helpful blog posts! I can't wait to watch more and to see more of Cupcake!

  12. I ordered the IT Cosmetics Today's Special Value. I happened to be researching their Bye Bye Under Eye Product, stumbled into their website, and decided to add myself to their email list. I was lucky enough to get an email from IT Cosmetics informing me of the upcoming QVC Event!
    I am very interested in your opinion of the Bye Bye Under Eye Product and how it compares to Revlon ColorStay (as IT Cosmetics is also marketing this product as a foundation).
    Much like you, I am also extremely fond of the staying power of Revlon Color Stay Cream Foundation. Regular ColorStay is a close match to Estee Lauder's Double Wear but its so much less expensive!
    Looking forward to your feedback! :)

  18. I'm a HUGE fan of the Brow Power. The Bye Bye Under Eye is also a product I go back to periodically.

    Just finished watching the last two eps of PLL on the DVR myself.

  19. I am new to your blog and YouTube channel and am so hooked! I love your informative and honest reviews and suggestions. I also really appreciate the time you take to find low cost alternatives that are truly as good as the higher priced originals. What I would love to know if you have come across any great low cost products for contouring. I really liked the IT Cosmetics My Scuplted Face palette you have featured in past videos, but seeing as it is discontinued and the new Vitality Face Disk is a bit of an investment for me, I was hoping you may have dome suggestions. Thank you so much for all the great information!
