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.

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! :)
