and unfortunately my home did sustain damages and that included my beauty room so i’ve had to move my entire filming setup over here to my office so if things look a little different if things sound a little different it’s because they are not 100 where they need to be but for the time being the next couple weeks things are gonna have to stay this way so i apologize in advance for any audio issues

under my eyes and my large visible pores i mainly get oily in my t-zone especially on my nose that is the first place on my skin where i get the oiliest so we’re gonna see how this new little beauty is going to wear before we begin you guys always know i give you all specifics on the foundation so let’s go ahead and take care of that better looking skin instantly and over time instantly better

and softens skin it cosmetics partners with plastic surgeons and dermatologists to develop skin loving solutions and clinically tested formulas this foundation says that it is water light provides medium coverage with a natural radiant finish once again i will be trying out the shade 20 light cool i do think i could have gone up maybe a shade or two and i’m going to talk to you about this in the application portion but i usually choose foundations that are more natural to warm so maybe that has something to do with it nonetheless guys we’re gonna give it a good 10 hour wear test today i’ve been doing my foundation reviews just a little bit different which i will discuss with you all in the application portion but if you want to see this new it cosmetics your skin but better foundation plus skin care in action keep on watching all right guys so let’s try out this new it cosmetics your skin but better foundation plus skincare i am going to be wearing um light cool 20 and i usually don’t go for cool shades in foundation i like to stick uh with the neutral or warm shades but somehow this one just looked like it would be a better fit to my skin and i did purchase this straight from the it cosmetics website so let me give it a good shake i swatched it last night and i posted it to my instagram and it seems like it’s a very watery consistency um it kind of made me feel that maybe applying it with my fingertips might be a good application so we might try that today i’m not too sure if i even want to use a damp beauty sponge i feel like maybe that would absorb too much but um let’s see how it goes right now on my skin all i have is my daytime moisturizer and of course i have my spf on the left side of my face i am only going to apply the foundation i’m not doing any primer concealer or setting powder actually i am going to do concealer just under my eye area but nowhere else on the skin on the right side of my face i’m going to do everything i’m even going to add a little bit of blush and bronzer just so we can see how those products are going to wear so let’s start with the left and you know what i think i want to start with my fingertips on the left side why not it really is a watery consistency it has like a makeup smell to it and it blended out really nicely with the fingertips all right so this is the side with the new foundation no foundation but it looks it looks really smooth it looks very skin like and it feels very very lightweight on the skin let me add a little bit more this time i’ll use the um beauty sponge that i have just to kind of build up some of the coverage i even covered my dark circles which i don’t have a lot of dark circles but if you compare it to the other side it looks pretty good all right guys i’m happy with it let me add some primer to the right side of my face and for that i’m going to use the tarte timeless smoothing primer i really have been enjoying this one if you watched my video over my july favorites i did include this primer i don’t know why it took me so long to give it a shot i guess because i feel like it’s similar to the tatcha still canvas and i already had that one all right now i’m going to go in with my it cosmetics this is the heavenly lux number seven brush i’m going to take what i have left on the back of my hand just kind of swirl that on the skin it’s going on really nicely with the brush as well it definitely spreads it out easier i’m going to take my beauty sponge i’m just gonna pat over now since i built it up on the left side of my face i am gonna go in with a little bit more and just build it up on the right i really think it looks pretty on the skin very very lightly i actually think i might have been able to go up a shade or two maybe i should have gone with the neutral warm shade because now that i’m looking at this it does look a little bit light i am liking the way it’s going over the tarte primer i think that looks really nice i can see that it’s kind of covering my pores a little bit better on the right side versus the left side all right guys so what do you think this is the side with primer without primer let me go ahead and add some setting powder now actually no i’m going to add a little bit of concealer and i’m going to go in with my usual this is a too faced um peach perfect concealer matte instant coverage so i’m going to do a little bit under each eye now i’m gonna add a little bit of the too faced peach perfect setting powder just to the right side of my face i do think that the foundation is definitely a medium coverage foundation i think that if you have some acne scarring or minor pigmentation you’re definitely going to want to just spot conceal a little bit with whatever your favorite concealer is just to get that full coverage but if you don’t mind some of your imperfections coming through then definitely leave it the way it is now i’m going to add a little bit of the morphe continuous setting mist to the right side of my face so everything looks looks pretty good i think that maybe like right here and this is my problem area it looks a little makeupy versus this side well maybe a little bit right here a little bit down here we’ll see if that will settle as the day goes but yeah it feels nice on my skin it feels very lightweight it doesn’t feel like tacky anymore even though i didn’t set this side it feels like it’s dried down it feels like it’s in place and it feels really comfortable so guys it’s about 8 a.
m right now i’m going to be giving this a good 10 hour wear test today and we’ll see how it does on my 38 year old normal to oily skin so i’ll check in with you guys a little bit later hey guys this is my four hour check-in with the new it cosmetics your skin but better foundation plus skin care and this is the side that i am liking the most this is the side that obviously has everything going on and then this is the side that it’s just straight up foundation with a little bit of concealer under my eye area i just think it’s looking better it’s wearing better on this side where i applied the primer as well as the setting powder and i have a little bit of an it cosmetics bronzer and i have a blush on i don’t remember i think it was a wet and wild blush that i applied here um but everything seems to be holding up better on this side versus this side i mean it still looks fine on this side i don’t really have any major complaints except for like right here you can really just start to see my imperfections kind of coming through to where maybe the foundation just lost a little bit of coverage but i do think it’s um for the most part just wearing pretty well um i do want to say that this foundation and let me grab it over here this foundation did come with a free brush from the it cosmetics website and i’m not going to open this brush because i want to pass this down to my mom who’s in need of a foundation brush but this is the heavenly skin um skin smoothing complexion brush number 704 and this was a free gift with the purchase of the new it cosmetics foundation directly from the it cosmetics website so this foundation still has six hours to go and i’ll be back a little bit later to give you guys another check in and then at the end of the day to give you guys my final thoughts have a great time stay safe and we’ll talk later all right guys it’s been seven hours that i’ve been wearing this new it cosmetics your skin but better foundation plus skincare i have to say i’m still liking the way it looks on this side where i applied all the products versus this side that it’s just foundation i feel like it’s starting to look a little makeup in through here remember when i applied it earlier i said it kind of looked like that it never really went away it got a little bit better but now that my oils are coming through seems to be getting a little bit worse it’s kind of worn off a little bit down here and a little bit around my mouth where foundation typically starts to break down on me at this point in the day um i think my oils are better controlled on this side where i have the setting powder versus this side where i just have the foundation it feels really lightweight though on the skin guys like it really even up applied that way and it feels really light it’s like a very watery consistency um but i’ve have and i’ve used better it cosmetics foundations or cc creams you know whatever they called them um right now this is not this is not one of my favorites um but we’ll see it has a few more hours because we’re gonna do 10 hours today and we’ll see how it looks at the 10 hour mark and i’ll give you guys my final thoughts then i can honestly say guys that i like the way it looks on this side of my face where i have all of my uh makeup products versus this side where i just have the foundation but this is not gonna be a winner in my book at least not for me not for my skin type and the things that i’m looking for in a foundation so i think if you’re going to want to try this out you’re definitely going to want to set it and maybe go in with your favorite primer now let me go into some of the claims of this foundation it said that it’s going to provide a natural no makeup makeup effect and i do think it applied really really well like it went on really nicely on the skin it says that coverage um it says that it’s going to provide coverage that minimizes pores and imperfections now while i don’t think it emphasized my pores or it sank into any of the fine lines that i have i don’t think it really helped to like take away the imperfections right in here and on both sides of my cheeks but mainly on this side you can really see the imperfections coming through so i thought it could have done a better job of coverage also a better job of keeping that coverage for longer i think that as the day went on i kind of lost some of the coverage and you can already see a little bit of redness coming through even right here on my chin more so than you can on this side that has all of the makeup products this also says that it’s going to provide all-day hydration and wear so i think it does a good job of providing hydration i don’t necessarily think it did a great job of wearing all day long this is the 10 hour mark um again i like this side more so than this side but i have other foundations that do hold up a little bit better on my skin now this claims that in two weeks of wearing this product that it’s going to even out the appearance of your skin tone it’s going to visibly refine skin texture and it’s going to soften the skin i will say that it feels really nice on my skin it really feels like i don’t have anything on at all and it applied really well like it’s a really skin like finish as well as application i don’t know about you guys i don’t necessarily wear the same foundation every single day and maybe that’s just me because i try out a lot of makeup products but even before i had my youtube channel i wouldn’t go in with the same foundation day after day so i’m not too sure about the two week claims i am not going to be able to review that claim i cannot say whether it’s going to work and do what it says now it does say that it is a water light formula which i will give it that it does provide medium coverage which yeah i can see that it is medium coverage and it does provide a natural radiant finish and i do agree to all of those claims now as far as my 38 year old normal to oily skin goes i do like a little bit more of coverage and i do prefer it to wear a little bit better than what this has worn throughout the day i will say that in looking at my other it cosmetics foundations and cc creams the two that i really like that i continue to reach for are the bye bye foundation this is the full coverage moisturizer oil-free matte with spf 50.
now remember this new one does not contain spf i think it’s one of the few it cosmetics foundations that doesn’t have spf because i know a lot of their foundations in cc creams they do contain spf so i was a little shocked that this one didn’t i also like the og the original cc cream i mean this just does an amazing job of coverage it also has the spf built into it so these are gonna continue to be in my rotation they’re gonna continue to be my go to it cosmetics foundation and cc creams i’ve just really enjoyed wearing these if you’re curious as to the shade in this one i wear fair light and in this one this one is a little off for me i have the shade light but i think if they have one shade lighter than that i want to say they have fair light now in this cc cream that’s the shade i need to get so guys i’m going to recommend this only to those of you out there who are looking for a really lightweight foundation who don’t necessarily need a full coverage but still want a little bit of color to your skin this one will give you maybe a good eight hours but i would definitely recommend setting it i think if you’re more along the lines of a skin type like mine if you’re full on oily you’re going to want to stay away from this now this does say it’s good for sensitive skin and i can definitely see how it would work for sensitive skin because it is so lightweight i am going to continue to play around with this foundation i don’t want to count it out just yet but right now first impressions i’m not a fan of it so guys what did you think of this new it cosmetics your skin but better foundation plus skin care is it something you’re going to pick up maybe you already ordered it it is available today on the ulta.
