This would be my 3rd time testing out IT Cosmetics products, the very first time it was a huge hit, the second time it was quite a fail, and this time I didn’t come with much expectations but definitely excited to share this review with you guys..
IT Cosmetics is definitely one of those make up lines that I really wish all their products work on me. I love how all of their makeup products are infused with amazing skincare benefits and being 30, if my make up products can also help me to care for my skin, I think it’s a really great bonus. However, I haven’t had much luck with their coverage products – so far the one that I’m really loving and continue to recommend it to my friends is the Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ – this CC cream is BOMB!
But being the makeup junkie that I am, I’m willing to keep trying – and this time, I’m trying their new Bye Bye Lines Foundation and Bye Bye Under Eye Concealing Pot. Again, just like their other products, these two are infused with a lot of skin care benefits; anti-aging, hydration, lots of different peptides and vitamins – basically lots good stuff for your skin and also providing pigment and coverage. I have played around with these two products for a week now and here’s my thoughts on them..
Light [there are 7 shades in total] – and this shade matches me really well.
Applies really well with both damp sponge and brush. Interestingly, both tools gave me the same amount of coverage. I recommend to use a primer underneath to both extend the wear and for the foundation to stick on better on the face – as this foundation is quite light and hydrating, it’s one that is easily slip off and disappear from the skin.
It gives a light coverage with one pump. If I put another layer with an extra pump, it’ll give me a medium coverage. It evens out my skin tone and some of the redness around my nose, but I’m still able to see some of my hyperpigmentations and acne spots.
It has a natural finish – and it’s one of the things that I love about this foundation is that it looks like you’ve got a healthy skin.
Now, this is not the most long-wearing foundation, especially it’s still Summer, makeup just generally melts faster my face. Hence, I highly recommend using a primer and powder to lock this foundation into the skin. With primer & powder, I could get a decent 6-7 hr wear time.
I think this would be a great everyday-foundation option if you have dry skin or mature skin or if you are looking for a foundation to wear for the Winter time. I love how the foundation feels very comfortable, super lightweight on the skin and it makes your skin just look healthy! When it comes to the ‘Bye Bye Lines’ claim, I don’t think it really does so – I don’t have lines other than on my undereye areas, but when I tested wearing this foundation on my undereye areas, it still settles into the lines and creases – so if you have wrinkles and lines, don’t expect that this foundation will ‘seamlessly conceal’ those lines and gives your a ‘perfect complexion’ – BUT – it does make your skin looks healthy.
Light – shade is tad bit too light for my liking and has a slight peach tone to it, but if you really like the look of a super light/brightened undereye areas, I think it will work for you if you are around my skin tone.
Best applied with damp sponge – as the formula is quite thick and hard to blend. I honestly think that the consistency of this concealer feels exactly the same like the Bye Bye Under Eye concealer. I have tried that concealer in the past and it did not work for me.
It has a medium-full coverage.
It has a satin finish
This concealer does last a decent 7-8 amount of time BUT my, oh, my, it is a crease-chaos-world. I applied it very lightly on my under eye areas, and blend it with a damp sponge and set it right away – and it creases right away. I have tried putting an extra layer of hydration onto the under eye areas and applying a hydrating primer – but none of those tricks worked, this concealer creases like nobody’s business and accentuate my lines and making them look much worse.
So, I’m gonna say bye bye to this concealer pot. I honestly think that this is just the same as the other concealer, except this one comes in a pot instead of a tube. I don’t think that this one is more hydrating even though it claims so.
So have you tried any of IT Cosmetics products? Which one is your favourite? Please share down in the comments section below, I’d love to hear from you guys..
