IT Cosmetics CC Cream- Product Review

As promised, I am going to do a product review every Wednesday of a beauty related item! For my very first review, I had to do the IT Cosmetics cc cream! I have been so blown away with this foundation and had to share it with you so that you can walk run to get it!! 

Facts about this foundation:
  • Full coverage
  • SPF 50+ UVA/UVB broad spectrum physical sunscreen 
  • Radiant finish
  • Vitamins A,B,C, and E
  • Peptides, hayloronic acid, and antioxidant protection
So this means you are getting amazing skincare benefits in a full coverage foundation! The vitamin C is brightening your skin, so if your concern is dark spots or acne marks, this will help fade them over time! The antioxidant protection works as a shield to protect your skin from all of the pollutants in the environment that make us age! 

You can see from my picture with no makeup on, that I have a lot of redness in my skin. The right side is with one layer of this foundation. It completely covered the redness, evened out my skin tone, and left my skin dewy and hydrated! I'll be honest, as much as I love skincare and take care of my skin, I've never been big on sunscreen. I always thought it would either break me out or leave a white cast on my skin. With this being SPF 50 I was really concerned about that! So I was pleasantly surprised when it did neither! And can you imagine the benefit of wearing this in the summer and protecting your skin from the sun?! Amazing! This has quickly become my favorite foundation and the product I have been searching for, for years! I know I'm a little late to this bandwagon but I'm hoping on full force!!

Black and White Fringe

Sweater: Altar'd State, Pants: Old Navy,
Bag: Tory Burch, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, 
Heels: Target

I hope y'all had an awesome weekend! Thank you so much for all of your kind words and encouragement about my new website!! You all mean the world to me! Brian and I had a relaxing, low-key weekend and it was amazing! Sunday after church we went to Target and I finally got a Keurig! Y'all, I don't know how it has taken me this long to get one, but I'm obsessed!! I think we are going to save like $700 a year now from me not going to Starbucks every day! 

I got this gorgeous cardigan on sale at Altar'd State! I know, big shocker. I just could not resist this gorgeous fringe and detailing. I'm pretty sure this sweater has already been worn about 4 times and I've had it less than two weeks! It looks great with jeans and loafers or dressed up with heels! And if you couldn't tell, I finally got those nasty ole roots touched up, and it just feels so good to have fresh highlights! I swear getting your hair done is life changing! It just makes you feel better! Hope you have a great week and don't forget to check out my Best of Beauty 2016 for a full review of my most coveted makeup products of this past year!!

Polka Dots and Bell Sleeves

Top: Altar'd State, Bag: Tory Burch,
Flats: Sole Society, Earrings: Kendra Scott

Happy 2017! New year, new look, right? At least for my blog! It got a little upgrade and a new web page address! Whenever you search for it from now on, you can just go to!! I have been waiting to post new content until all of the upgrades on my page were finished! I so badly wanted a website that I was proud of and wanted y'all to visit! And I am soooooooo in love with the way it turned out! Simple, modern, and girly! 

I have so many fun posts planned for this year and I want to know what all you want to see! More beauty, achieving goals, blogging tips, how to style certain pieces, y'all let me know! I am thinking of doing a product review every Wednesday on new beauty products and/or anything else y'all want me to review! That way you know that every Wednesday you can count on a new beauty post! Let me know what you think! 

Now, on to this ADORABLE top! If you have been around these parts for a while, you know my favorite store is Altar'd State! And when they have their Semi-Annual sale(which happens to be right now) you can NOT beat the prices! Everything is already marked down and then its an additional 60% off that!! Holy Cow! When I saw these polka dots, I fell in love. Then I saw the bell sleeves and it was a done deal!! I love the lace detail and just how warm and cozy this top is! I had my eye on these flats for the longest time and for Christmas Brian surprised me and got them for me! I love the color and how it just gives such a fun pop to any outfit!! 

Okay now go shop this semi annual sale before its over! I promise you will thank me!!
