IT seems like IT COSMETICS is just everywhere these days, doesn’t it? I’ve been writing about them since 2008 and they were acquired by L’Oreal last year, so hopefully they were continue to put out innovative products in the market. Sometimes after a brand gets picked up the quality can fall by the wayside. So fingers crossed!

The latest release that has my attention is their Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50+ ($38/18g @ itcosmetics.com, ulta.com).

What It Is: Developed with plastic surgeons, Confidence in a Compact is your first-ever solid serum foundation—and delivers all the skincare benefits of the best-selling Confidence in a Cream, plus full coverage and SPF 50+ physical sunscreen, in one simple step! The groundbreaking solid serum technology combined with anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, squalane, antioxidants and a super ceramide cream truly transform your complexion. Available in Fair, Light, Medium, Medium Tan, Tan, Rich and Deep.

More Mattes From NARS!

Love those fat matte lip pencils? NARS just came out with 10 new shades of their Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27 @ narscosmetics.comsephora.com) shades. What I really like about these besides the smooth formula is the precision in lining the lips that you can only get with a pencil. The name may be Matte in the name but I feel like these are not the mattes out there in that the colors don’t look dry on my lips or dries them out.

This Is Your Hair Mask Answer!

Redken-Color-Extend-Magnetics-Mega-Mask
Even though I mostly feel quite inept when it comes to styling my hair, I do know a good conditioner and when I try one. The latest one from REDKEN is their Color Extend Magnetics Mega Mask ($29/6.8oz @ ulta.com) and this is serious one. So serious that it contains two products in one … as in, there is a separate tube of product inside the overall container, which you can see!

I mean, we are all quite familiar with multi-masking when it comes to the face so why not the hair? This deep treatment does its magic on towel-dried hair in 3-5 minutes and they claim the benefits will last up to 3 washes. And this one contains their new RCT (root, core, tip) protein complex, which nourishes each strand from the root to the end. And I think I can actually feel it. I mean, while the extended care and conditioning is great, what I am coming back for with this one is how smooth and soft this left my hair and zero tangles. A miracle!
