Recent Beauty Buys No. 11

I just love reviewing beauty products. Do you guys enjoy these posts? If not then sorry I’m not sorry because I’m going to keep doing them! A lot of you ask me what foundation I’m wearing in my Insta-Stories and 99.9% of the time if I’m running errands, working or working out I’m in this IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream. It has such great coverage and such a great feel on my skin and I’m just in love, ok? I decided to use today’s post to review it plus this Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Industrial-Strength Full Coverage Concealer and a couple of the Pixi By Petra products I recently picked up at Target. So read on and get to shopping!

concealer, cc cream, pixi makeup

Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Industrial-Strength Full Coverage Concealer – I bought this after hearing the rave reviews everyone left on my insta-stories and like it! It’s actually thinner than I thought it would be but you can layer it to get the desired thickness you want. I still opt for a concealer with a wand but I love to travel with compact makeup products and so I always throw this one in my bag when I need a touchup. (I wear the shade “light”).

Pixi By Petra Shea Butter Lip Balm – Pixi is a great (affordable) beauty line at Target. I picked up this in the “Natural Rose” shade and I’ve been really happy I added it to my collection.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ – This. Stuff. Is. Amazing. I saw it on infomercials so was immediately skeptical (just keeping it real) but the girl in Sephora gave it rave reviews so I tried it. It is thick and covers so well but doesn’t feel thick or look thick. I can only chalk it up to magic or something because it’s seriously a miracle product. And SPF 50+?!?! Seriously, please buy it. I will literally be shocked if you don’t like it. Again, I wear shade “light”.

Pixi By Petra LipLift Max Lip Gloss – Love this lipgloss! I like to wear a color under it since it’s fairly thin. It has a tingly sensation that I like and the shimmer is really pretty. Again, another affordable option! I have the “honey sheen” color.

Pixi By Petra Beauty Blush Duo + Kabuki .36oz – Peach Honey – This is a pretty great dupe for my Becca highlight/blush palette that I wear daily. For those of you new to the beauty game “dupe” means it’s just like a more expensive product. You should buy it if you are looking for a good cheek product. Put the blush on the apples of your cheeks and lightly dusk the light color on the top of the cheekbone. Do we need a tutorial? I think so!

    Oh do I agree about the CC Cream. IT makes the best one I’ve ever used.

    How are you applying the CC cream? Brush, beauty blender, fingers?

    • I use my fingers. I need to do more research on this but I only like a beauty blender with a foundation currently. It’s almost as if the cc cream doesn’t go on as smoothly with it!
