AHH!  New makeup!  I absolutely LOVE makeup!  To the point that I consider myself my own professional makeup artist (even though I would NEVER attempt to do anyone's makeup for fear of blinding someone, lol)!  Spring of 2015, I was lucky enough to be picked to participate in IT Cosmetics's IT GIRL campaign and in the Summer of 2015, I was even luckier to move forward in their Top 20 picks.  Unfortunately, I didn't win the big prize, but I was introduced to some pretty nice products! 

Every few months or so, IT Cosmetic's sends over a nice care package of some of their latest products for me to try out and I really appreciate it.  They could have totally said "you didn't win, so have a great life!", but instead, they continue to allow us (at least I do) to play in their products and create magic!

There has been controversy in the shading of IT Cosmetic's face products and to be quite honest, I am on board with it as well.  Not to some of the extremes that I've seen out there, but I did express my concern to the company and was assured that they were diligently working on broadening their shade range to accommodate ALL skin tones.  The issue is that their face products (foundations, powders, etc) aren't deep enough for women with darker skin tones to use.  I can wholeheartedly agree with that statement as I had issues completing the task of a full makeup tutorial for the contest that I posted on my YouTube channel.  They just weren't dark enough!  So while I hear great reviews for those specific products, I am not able to enjoy because I don't want to look "casket ready" walking out of the door.  For the products that I have tried, I have fallen in love and I am hoping that they will release darker toned face products in the near future to broaden their audience and customer base.

For 1 thing, I can say that their packaging is always phenomenal!
So out of these, the items that I've tried before are (in no particular order)
* Bye Bye Under Eye (color: deep, use for conceal highlighting under eye, down nose)
* Universal Brow Power (one of the best, made for any hair color/skin tone)
* Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Mascara (does what mascara is supposed to do)
* Blurred Lines L/S (color: Je Ne Sais Quoi)
(not my favorite, a little too sheer and a basic color that doesn't show up against my skin tone)
* Vitality Lip Flush (favorite lip moisturizer right now)
* Celebration Foundation (color: rich - too light so can't really review)

I'm pretty excited to try (in no particular order)
* CC+ Creme Blush (color: Je Ne Sais Quoi)
(this looks like a darker shade than what I've tried, so I am hoping that it matches!) 
(REALLY excited to try this, needed a new face moisturizer)

I'll definitely keep you guys informed on how these products work with a mini pictorial in the near future!  Have any of you tried these products?  If so, how did you like them!  Happy Thursday Loves!  I know I'm a day late with posting, time slipped out of my hands!  See you tomorrow!
