BSS- A Week in Reverse

I am going to try writing this week in reverse.  So that means, today is Saturday.  Aren’t you glad?  I was almost worried there it was Monday.  Let’s celebrate with a little Beauty Shop Saturday talk.

Recently I’ve been sucked into QVC beauty.  I think it has mostly to do with the fact that I don’t want to get out of bed on Saturday morning.  I remember I had a co-worker once who thought her mom was becoming a QVC addict.  She kept saying, “Mom, they aren’t your friends!”  🙂

Friends or not, they can do a great job with their salespitch.  I’ve always wanted to try some of their products (Wren, anybody?) but haven’t pulled the trigger.

But I’m a sucker for a foundation.  If it promises fabulous skin, I’m all ears.  It’s the holy grail of beauty products.  Unlike wrinkle creams it promises instant satisfaction.  All you have to do is put it on….right?

Here was the recent product I purchased from QVC.

It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Celebration Foundation with Brush

it Cosmetics by Jamie Kern/Innovative Technology Cosmetics/Celebration Foundation with Brush $43.50

Disclaimer:  I was also about out of foundation.

Here’s my review:

While just about every product advertised on QVC is marketed as a “life changer,” this product isn’t exactly that wonderful.  I will say that as a powder, it is very discrete and the brush is simply amazing.  It’s soooo soft.

I wouldn’t say that it covers as it was advertised.  Here is how they advertise it as different-

“Why is it different: Using antiaging ingredients–including hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, antioxidants, grape seed oil, olive oil, hyaluronic acid, rose, aloe, niacin, silk, and vitamins A, C, and E–this foundation helps treat skin with antiaging benefits and give more youthful radiance while completely concealing imperfections and blurring away the look of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. The creamy, crease-proof powder foundation glides on easily and lasts. It’s formulated without talc, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, and phthalates.”- QVC

If you have rosacea or acne or scarring or a birthmark, it won’t be the foundation for you. But for those of you who have oily but clear skin  or even combination skin and like to wear powder foundation, I do like that the product is good for your skin.  And I know this line has many different foundations, so I would be willing to give another one a try.

I’ll give it 5 stars for a powder.  But a 3 for a foundation.  Maybe next time QVC,   Maybe next time.
