Greetings beauty lovers! Mother’s Day is fast approaching and I bet there are still a few of you who have yet to buy gifts for your mom (or mother figure.) Well, fret no more. If your mom is a makeup or skincare junkie, I have some great Mother’s Day gift ideas to share from It Cosmetics!
Being a mom myself, I have often thought (and said) that the greatest gift is my lovely children. Now, that may be true (most of the time), but most mom’s do like a little something extra on the big day. (She’s pretty much a superhero after all.) So, I’m not lying when I say IT has got you covered with gifts that will wow.
Makeup, and brushes, and skincare! Oh my! Seriously though, look at all of these gorgeous goodies, which is only a smidgen of what It Cosmetics has to offer. I was recently sent a package of some new (ish) items to try, and I’ve also included some of my past favorites in this round-up.
First, lets talk brushes. If you’ve never felt any It brushes, you are seriously missing out. They are so incredibly soft, plush, and very well made. (Worth every penny in my opinion.) The Heavenly Luxe Flat Top Foundation brush is one of my favorites for foundation, and the Heavenly Luxe Complexion Brush is my go to for blush. However, they also have some pretty amazing brush sets available at Ulta, and usually for a killer price I might add!
Since we are on the topic of brushes, I thought I’d talk about the It’s Your Brush Love cleanser really quick. I have never tried an instant brush cleanser before and I must say that I’m pretty impressed. Now, this won’t work magic on brushes that are caked on with a weeks worth of foundation. However, using this each time you use your brushes keeps them cleaner in-between that dreaded deep cleaning session. It works especially well on getting eyeshadow brushes cleaned in a jiffy.

Next up, is skincare. I have only used the Confidence in a Cream once, but my fellow beauty blogger friends can’t get enough! This cream combines collagen and hyaluronic acid to plump fine lines and wrinkles. Also, niacin, peptides, and a super ceramide complex, immerse your skin in moisture for smoother texture, enhanced firmness, and a reduced look of pores and discoloration. Sounds pretty great for their first ever skincare product!
The next new (to me) thing I tried was the Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. WOW! I can’t believe I’ve never tried this before. I was just griping to friends about how concealer always dries my under eyes out and makes me look older. That is SO not the case with this. Be forewarned, it is extremely pigmented so the smallest dab will do. The coverage is amazing and it has a slightly dewy finish which looks beautiful on my skin. Note: this did settle into my fines lines right after applying, but I just dabbed it with my finger and the creasing went away.
Finally, the last new item that I tried is the Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment in Rose (new shade). Now, if you know me, you know I love a bold lip. However, this gem of a lippie really impressed me. It is packaged in a sleek tube with a strong magnetic closure, and it doesn’t have any discernible scent. The formula is so smooth and cushy, and it gives lips the most beautiful rosy pink color. At first the color is fairly light, but the more often you apply it, the deeper the color gets. (Yet, still very natural looking.) It just gives such a healthy look to lips, while keeping them hydrated and supple.
I am seriously in love with the fresh & simple look I get from using these It Cosmetics products, and I know your mom would be too! Some of my favorites here are the Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment, Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, Confidence In a Compact Foundation, and the Bye Bye Pores Blush.
(P.S. See my previous It Cosmetics review for details on all of the other products I mentioned that weren’t reviewed in this post!) Also, It Cosmetics has a bunch of great travel and mini sizes available. They are a great choice to bring on a long weekend, or camping trip!
