It Cosmetics are definitely one of my fave beauty brands, I honestly couldn't live without their Your Skin But Better CC Cream+, it's my go-to base product! (I use the original most days and then in the summer I switch to the matte version). They have recently launched some new products which they kindly sent me over to try out. So in this post, I'm going to be reviewing both of them.

First up is the Confidence in a Cleanser* which is obviously an addition to their popular "Confidence" range. At £26 (148ml) the skin-transforming cleansing serum is what I would call a high-end cleanser but I don't mind spending a bit more than usual on a product if it works well for me. I'm already a fan of their Confidence in a Gel Lotion* so I couldn't wait to try the cleanser. It has a sensitive-friendly formula which they claim washes away makeup, SPF and daily dirt. I found it does work well for all of the above but I still like to remove the majority of my makeup with a cleansing balm first just because I feel like it really gets in there and removes everything properly and then I go in with the Confidence in a Cleanser as my second cleanse, which leaves my skin feeling super clean and soft because of it's "serum formula". I found the cleanser hasn't upset my skin in any way so it definitely coincides with the sensitive-friendly claim. Overall I've been enjoying using the cleanser and I would pick it up again.



Matte (L-R) - Vision, Humble and Like a Dream
Cream (L-R) - Vision, Humble, Like a Dream and Wish List
They've also released their "Pillow Lips" Lipsticks RRP £20* in two different formulas - Matte and Cream which both come in unique packaging which I really like because if you're indecisive like me and have a ton of lipsticks at the bottom of your makeup bag then you can spot the IT lipsticks from a mile off. The moisture wrapping lipsticks contain lip nourishing extracts including collagen and hyaluronic filling spheres which plump up your lips, nourish and smooth fine lines and the shades have been made to complement every complexion. Talking of shades there are 10 of them in total and 4 of them you can buy in both the Matte or Cream formula depending on your preference. I chose 4 different shades in total and three of the shades I chose, I received in both the Matte and Cream options so I could compare them against each other. 

The shades I chose are -
Vision - a peachy everyday nude*
Humble - A pinky-brown nude*
Like a Dream - A vampy mid-pinky-purple* 
Wish List - a rose-pink* 





After trying them over the past week or so, I've come to the conclusion that I actually really like both of the formulas. The matte isn't too matte and doesn't feel drying on the lips at all and the cream is comfortable and doesn't "smoosh" up your face easily like some cream lipsticks do. I'm also a fan of the unique shape of the bullet because it hugs your lips and makes it super easy to apply. I think because I've been opting for more of a glossy-creamy looking lip over the past year I would probably choose the cream option over matte. My favourite shades are Vision and Humble just because they're more of a wearable everyday kind of shade. I definitely need to be having a more confident day to wear Like a Dream and Wish List personally, although they are both really pretty shades. Wish List is an ideal shade for the spring for that "pop of colour" look. I also think the formula really does help to enhance your lips and give them a more plumped look.

Will you be trying any of the new releases from It Cosmetics?
