IT Cosmetics was kind enough to send me some products to try for review, and I have to say, I’m so glad they did! I was unfamiliar with this brand as it’s mainly sold on QVC and I don’t really watch home shopping networks, but now I’m thinking I should start.
It’s a lash primer and tightliner in one. I love that they’re thinking of innovative ways to streamline makeup application. The product has a tiny mascara brush that you press onto the skin at the base of the lashes to leave color for the tightline, and then wiggle the wand up the lashes to the tips to coat with primer. Tightline retails for $29.
What I like about this product is that it cuts out the extra eyeliner step, the formula is extremely waterproof and long-wearing once set, and it really lengthened my stubby lashes.
What I didn’t like about it is that until it set, some of the color came off and was floating around on my eye, and then settled into the inner corners, and it was a little difficult to remove because rather than dissolving with eye makeup remover or water, it flaked and the flakes stuck to my eyelids and took a little extra rinsing to remove.
But all in all, I think this is a worthwhile product if you want to cut out the extra step of using an eye pencil to tightline.
Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss

Developed to give that long-wear flush of naturally pretty shine of color and the anti-aging hydration of a super-luxe treatment lip gloss serum. Retails for $24.00, Limited Edition “News Anchor Blue” is $12.50.
I’ve been on the hunt for a moisturizing, anti-aging lip gloss or treatment, so I was so glad they included this in my sample set! It’s packed with moisturizers and antioxidants to keep lips plump and moisturized. The colors I received are “Perfect Nude”, “Pretty In Pink” and Limited Edition “News Anchor Blue”, it comes in 6 shades. These glosses are pretty sheer, so the colors are subtle and blend with your natural pigmentation which I like. There’s a slightly sweet scent to the gloss, but it dissipates quickly.
The feel is nice and creamy, not sticky or gooey, and you get a nice subtle shine. They feel very comfortable on the lips, and most importantly don’t dry out the lips with wear. These were fairly long wearing (lasting 3-4 hours but not through a meal).
News Anchor Blue goes on clear, but because of it’s blue color crystals, it makes your teeth appear whiter.
