If you haven’t heard, It Cosmetics has finally made its way to Sephora.com and some of it’s shops too. I have been wanting to try It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC cream, the Bye Bye Under Eye waterproof concealer and the Bye Bye Under Eye Illuminating concealer for a while now.
A lot of people rave about It Cosmetics products, which got me excited. Becuase make up is personal, I couldn’t wait to test them for myself.
First of all, the Your Skin But Better CC cream’s packaging is really practical. It’s easy to store and light to travel with. The pump keeps the product hygienic and stops the air from contaminating it. Also, it’s much less messy and easy to control. The Your Skin But Better CC cream is definitely not your average CC cream. It’s thick and full coverage. Even though it’s high coverage, it somehow emphasized every imperfection on my face. It made my pores much more visible.
Because it’s so high coverage, it sits heavily on your skin. It definitely doesn’t look like your skin but better. In fact, it makes you look like you’re wearing a ton of makeup. Adding to that, the smell is pretty intense. It smells like a lemon bar! Although that may sound delicious, imagine your whole face smelling like a lemon bar… The whole day… Yeah, no thanks! Also it’s extremely dewy, unless you have very dry skin, you’re gonna look like a grease ball.
As for the concealers, although different, they’re both highly pigmented and similar in texture. You only need to use the smallest amount with them both. Trust me when I say, a small amount will go a loooong way! They’re creamy and easily bendable. But if you have even the slightest lines under your eyes, they will crease and emphasize them.
I had very high hopes for these products, but unfortunately I was extremely disappointed. I will definitely give It Cosmetics another chance in the future, but I can’t recommend these products to anyone.
I’m currently in New York City and planning on doing some cosmetics shopping here. So stay tuned for more beauty posts soon!
Have you tried any of these items or anything else from the brand? How do you like them?
