My mother has a to-die-for complexion. Sure, she's old enough to be you know, my mother, but you could never tell it by looking at her skin.
Although I'd like to think I take after mom, the mirror has me worried. That's why I was thrilled to try IT Cosmetics' new Bye Bye Collection. In addition to concealing problems, these talented multitaskers work to help you bid adieu to everything from dark circles and pores to stubborn makeup and fine lines.
When I told my dear friend Becky I was testing them, she immediately asked "What's IT?" So let me start by saying they're one of my fav anti-aging makeup (think SuperHero Mascara) and skincare lines. They work with plastic surgeons to develop serious beauty solutions based on ingredients that are both cutting edge and good for your skin. Nice!
I tried these eight products from IT's Bye Bye Collection, available at itcosmetics.com, Sephora.com and select Sephora stores. You can also find the eye cream, lip treatment and makeup remover at QVC and QVC.com.
What it is: A hard-working anti-aging serum proven to deliver 10 powerful clinical results to your skin. It takes on everything from dryness to wrinkles to give skin a younger, healthier look in as little as 10 days with more dramatic results over time.
What I like: Not your typical serum, this super-light cream leaves my skin silky smooth and glowing. It includes one of my go-to hydrators (hyaluronic acid) plus argan oil and babassu oil for an instant burst of moisture. Using it in the morning and at night after cleansing soothes my parched skin without any icky, oily feeling.
Have you ever seen a movie and thought, "I wish I could've been there when they filmed that..." C'mon, wouldn't you have loved seeing Spielberg shoot the face-melting-Nazi scene in Raiders of the Lost Arc...or been a fly on the wall during Meg Ryan's infamous, I'll-have-what-she's-having shot in When Harry Met Sally.
History will record that I'm not the MOST fit person in Colleywood. A bum foot with more titanium than a new set of Callaways will do that to a person.
I do try and live a reasonably healthy lifestyle. And after extensive research I've learned that moderate exercise may not help me live longer, but it will help me die slower. So I've got that going for me.
My day typically begins with a four-mile walk inside the bubble that houses Colleywood and Baja Colleywood (you know it as Euless). It's an urban/residential mix and my only wildlife sightings are what I see on the sidewalks, streets and parking lots.
There's a pattern here. I see the same "types" of people every day. The seasons change...the outfits are constantly changing, but the people...well, I've identified 4 distinct groups.
This one's for the girls! The eight authors of Red Thong Strong: Girlfriend's Little Secrets to Smoothing Life's Panty Lines have joined Soma to give away eight autographed copies of our inspirational new book and eight, $100 Soma gift cards.
