Happy Monday everyone! Ever find a product that makes you want to scream from the rooftops how much you love it? Ahh. That is so me right now but with three products from It Cosmetics. WAIT until you guys see these babies!

it Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc

First up is the it Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc. While I do small hands to show for scale, it is massive, guys! Packaging is super simple and all black rubber (like NARS). Sometimes less is more! 

 (I started playing with it before I took pictures! Oopsies!)
This disc contains an anti-aging vitality blush, a waterproof bronzer, an illuminating highlighter and a jumbo sized mirror built in. Infused into them are hydrating ingredients like hydrolyzed collagen, acai, green tea, and vitamins A, C, and E. The pigment from the blush, bronzer and highlighter are fantastic and are incredibly easy to blend. 

Pale like me? With a light hand, this bronzer is the perfect chocolate matte to contour or just bronze up with without ever looking muddy or orange. The blush is a gorgeous coral with subtle golden shimmer and is super pigmented so I recommend a light hand if you want a natural pink cheek. Last (but certainly not least), the highlighter is out of this world. I use this going down my nose, cheekbones and above my lip in the cupids bow to get a healthy glow. I'm convinced putting this down my nose made it look way more narrow but my mom thinks I'm crazy. I mean, really, who's the one with the beauty blog here? ;)

Right off the bat, the bronzer and blush looked familiar. Digging through my beauty drawer, I found MAC Hibiscus Kiss (from the RiRi collection) and NARS Orgasm. Swatching them next to each other, I found that none of them are quite like it Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Disc. 

MAC Hibiscus Kiss Bronzer in comparison to the it Cosmetics Bronzer is lighter and more orange-toned. MAC Hibiscus Kiss Blush versus it Cosmetics Blush is lighter and more pink while it Cosmetics is more pinky-coral. NARS Orgasm is probably the closest color wise but no cigar being more sheer, a bit more coral and way more sparkly.

The Bye Bye Under Eye Anti- Aging Concealer is a force to be reckoned with. This full-coverage, EXTREMELY pigmented contains high concentrations of Vitamins K, A, C, E and Collagen which are supposed to reduce under eye puffiness while strengthening the skin underneath the eye. 

Now you guys know I love you, right? I'm always looking out for you all. I'm telling you, you NEED to go out and get this right now. This is the holy grail of all full-coverage concealers. Now, a little goes a very, very, very long way with this product. I recommend using a pin-prick sized amount for both eyes. This stuff will cover any redness, discolorations, fine lines, age spots and blemishes.  I can honestly almost guarantee this will cover tattoos but unfortunately, I don't have any to test out that theory. The consistency is very thick and creamy which usually screams out cakey-ness and creasing but I experienced none of that.

it Cosmetics Luxe High Performance Eyeshadow Palette is a vacation in a box with 12 desert island-inspired eyeshadows. Each eyeshadow is water-proof, finely milled and incredibly pigmented (noticing a trend here?) with or without primer. All are infused with anti-aging and ultra-hydrating hydrolyzed collagen, acai, green tea and Vitamins A, C and E. I can't rave enough about how beautiful these really are. I had no issues blending or creasing after about 8 hours of wear!
