The Best of It Cosmetics

The Best of It Cosmetics Review

2017 has been a year of old beauty favourites for me but a few months ago a bundle of It Cosmetics goodies entered my life and turned my makeup routine upside down. I don't remember the last time a new (to me) brand impressed me so much. Every single item from them I've tried so far has made it onto my all-time favourites list and gotten a permanent place in my makeup bag. 

Leto 2017 je bilo zame leto starih favoritov. V moji kozmetični torbici se ni znašlo prav veliko novih izdelkov, ki bi me posebno navdušili, vsaj dokler ni pred kratkim v moje življenje vstopila znamka It Cosmetics in obrnila mojo vsakodnevno rutino na glavo. Res ne vem, če se mi je že kdaj prej zgodilo, da me je očaral prav vsak produkt iz ponudbe ene same znamke. Seveda nisem preizkusila celotne kolekcije (ko bi jo le lahko), ampak kar mi je prišlo pod roke, je v trenutku pristalo na mojem seznamu najbolj priljubljenih ličil vseh časov in dobilo dosmrtno mesto v moji kozmetični torbici. 
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream and Superhero Mascara Review

Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ captured my heart with seamless application, higher than expected coverage and non-drying formula. It's the only foundation I've tried so far that can apply with an actual brush without having it cling to dry patches - I normally have to use a wet makeup sponge to avoid the problem. My current favourite is this Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush, which allows me to blend it in streak-free and in a matter of seconds, which saves me A LOT of time. One layer gives me almost medium coverage, higher than my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum I've been using since forever, but looks flawlessly natural and feels non-existing on my skin. All boxes checked! I have the shade called Medium (there's seven in total, ranging from fair to deep), but I'm going with Light next time, as I do find Medium slightly too dark for my currently tan-less skin. 

Your Skin But Better CC+ krema z SPF 50+ me je osvojila z brezhibnim nanosom, visoko prekrivnostjo in neizsušujočo formulo. Običajno moram za nanos podlage uporabiti navlaženo gobico, da se izognem čezmernemu oprijemanju podlage na suhih predelih obraza, pri tej pa lahko brez problema uporabim čopič. Trenutno je moj najljubši Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection, prav tako od It Cosmetics, s katerim CC kremo nanesem hitro in enakomerno. En sloj mi da skoraj srednjo prekrivnost, višjo kot podlaga Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, ki jo uporabljam že leta, finiš je popolnoma naravnega izgleda, pa še na koži se skoraj ne čuti. Sama imam odtenek Medium, ki bi mi mogoče ustrezal po poletnih počitnicah, trenutno pa mi je malce pretemen, tako da se bom naslednjič odločila za odtenek Light.

The Superhero Mascara is pretty good at ticking all those boxes too. Lengthening? Check! Volumising? Check! Lifting? Check! My favourite thing about it is that it holds the curl all day long, as my lashes normally droop quite quickly after applying mascara, but not with this one. I also haven't noticed any smudging or clumping, so it's now sharing the number one spot with Jordana's Best Lash Extreme

Superhero maskara je prav tako super. Trepalnice precej podaljša, doda jim volumen in jih lepo tudi privzdigne. Najbolj mi je všeč, da drži trepalnice zavihane prav ves dan, saj moje ponavadi hitro padejo dol, pa tudi z razmazovanjem in lepljenjem nisem nikoli imela težav, tako da si zdaj deli prvo mesto z Jordana Best Lash Extreme, edino drugo maskaro, ki me je sto odstotno prepričala. 
It Cosmetics Review

I feel like I've been battling with my prominent under eye circles since the day I was born, and they've only been getting worse thanks to my lovely insomnia. Even though I've found a couple of pretty good concealers over the past few years, none have been 'strong' enough to be used on their own. I always have to combine them with a salmon-toned corrector, but the Bye Bye Under Eye provides such full coverage it manages to conceal the darkest of them all on its own. The texture is quite thick so you do have to blend it out properly, but once it's set with powder, it doesn't crease and lasts very long. I don't use it just under my eyes, though. It works for other imperfections too. I apply it in the corners of my nose to cover my broken capillaries and of course on the spots too. The shade I have is Medium and it's actually perfect for me. I wouldn't go for a lighter one. 

Podočnjaki so moji najhujši sovražniki. Z njimi se borim že odkar pomnim, zadnja leta pa se je zaradi moje nespečnosti situacija še poslabšala. Čeprav sem odkrila že kar nekaj dobrih tekočih korektorjev, noben izmed njih ni dovolj prekriven sam po sebi, tako da jih vedno uporabljam v kombinaciji s kremnim korektorjem v lososovi barvi, Bye Bye Under Eye korektor pa zadevo reši sam. Je namreč neverjetno prekriven in zakamuflira tudi najbolj modre podočnjake, je pa tekstura precej gosta, tako da ga je treba zabrisati z dobrim čopičem in zacementirati s transparentnim pudrom, da zdrži cel dan na mestu in se ne useda v gubice. Ni pa uporaben samo za podočnjake. Sama ga uporabljam tudi za prekrivanje mozoljev in razpokanih kapilar okrog nosu. Odtenek Medium mi je za mojo polt ravno pravšnji in za razliko od CC kreme, ne bi posegla po svetlejšem.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil Review

The Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil stands out to me because it's just so easy to use. The retractable oval tip can be used from two different angles, giving you the option of thin or wide strokes, and apparently this particular taupe shade works for every single hair colour. I haven't tested that claim out myself, so I can't confirm it, but I do know it matches my brows perfectly. Plus I also love that there's a spooley brush on the other side so you can brush through your eyebrows in case you go in too heavy-handed.

Brow Power univerzalen svinčnik za obrvi me je prepričal predvsem s priročnostjo. Ni ga treba šiliti, konica je ovalna, z ostro in ploščato stranjo, tako da lahko vlečeš tanke ali širše črte, na drugem koncu pa je še krtačka, s katero lahko obrvi prečešeš, če slučajno naneseš preveč produkta. Svinčnik pride samo v enem, taupe odtenku, ki se baje prilagodi vsem barvam las. Tega sama nisem uspela preveriti, tako da izjave ne morem potrditi, vem pa to, da popolnoma ustreza moji lastni barvi obrvi.

I don't know about you, but I'm completely sold on It Cosmetics and itching to try more. I would love to hear your recommendations if you've tried any products yourself! I'm almost out of Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream, so I'll need to do some shopping soon... 

Mislim, da je več kot očitno, da me je znamka It Cosmetics povsem očarala. Glede na to, da mi Your Skin But Better CC+ krema počasi že gre h koncu, bom morala kmalu spet v nabavo, zato bi bila vesela tvojih predlogov, če si se slučajno tudi sama že navdušila nad kakšnim It Cosmetics izdelkom.
