The IT Cosmetics Christmas Collection launches on QVC UK’s website on the 19th of November (today!!) and it’s so exciting as it’s the first Christmas which IT Cosmetics have been available to purchase within the UK as they launched in April of this year. I already featured the beautiful IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Holiday Palette on my blog a few days ago, and today I have the IT Cosmetics Holiday Brush Roll which is also launching alongside the eyeshadow palette. The IT Cosmetics Holiday Brush Roll is £44.50 and is described as an all-in-one, silver, faux leather roll and cosmetics case which was designed for you to be able to carry all of your IT Cosmetics must-haves in style. The Brush Roll retails for $35/£27 alone on the IT Cosmetics website, however QVC have the beautiful Brush Roll on offer as part of their Christmas Collection with four full size award winning IT Cosmetics brush favourites for £44.50 which is such an amazing deal.
The IT Cosmetics Holiday Brush Roll is really lovely and is the nicest brush roll I’ve ever seen with an handy tie cord which wraps around to keep the roll secure, and on the cord there’s a cute pink heart gift tag which is a nice idea if you’re planning on gifting this brush roll to someone as a present. The brush roll unravels to reveal a zippable case which you can keep makeup products inside and a brush wrap which has little pockets for the handles of your brushes and two rows of elasticated loops which is genius as it allows you to have two rows of brushes and the loops vary in size so you can insert brushes of different sizes within the loops so you can take just a couple of brushes with you or a large number of brushes. I’ve never seen a brush roll which allows for two layers of brushes like this one, and I really like the varying loop sizes so you can choose the right size loop for the size of the brush. I think it’s a great idea to have a makeup bag/case and brush roll combined so you can keep your brushes protected but packed alongside your makeup products when travelling and I would carry this case within my carry on luggage if going abroad as you have everything in one case.
Inside the brush roll there are four full size IT Cosmetics brushes for both the face and eyes and they’re some of the nicest brushes I’ve ever tried and they make this gift set such an incredible offer due to their individual retail prices. Each of the brushes have plastic sleeves so you can choose to keep them should you want to, to keep the bristles protected when travelling but if you had this brush roll you wouldn’t necessarily need to as the loops help to keep the brushes protected. I’m particularly impressed with this gift set as the brushes are all full sized and can be purchased individually as a lot of brush kits like these tend to be mini or travel sized brushes but these are full sized, amazing quality brushes.
IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe French Boutique Blush Brush worth £27
How amazing is the handle of this brush?! I’ve never seen anything like this one before as the bottom half of the handle is a black, rubberised handle and the middle section is a clear plastic bubble with IT suspended within the bubble, and is attached to the brush’s ferrule. The handle design is supposedly to aid grip when application but it does feel very comfortable to hold when applying blush and I love how unique it is. The brush has ultra-plush, award-winning Heavenly Luxe™ synthetic hair with an angled, precision-cut brush head which ‘effortlessly hugs the curves of your cheeks for a soft-focus, naturally pretty finish every time’.
IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush worth $48/£38
IT Cosmetics say; “Ultra luxe, ultra plush tool for perfect airbrush application. Provides the capability to build coverage with foundation or powder and buff away imperfections. This brush was designed with leading plastic surgeons to apply BOTH foundation and concealer to a flawless, airbrushed finish. The ultra plush, ultra luxe large end allows you to quickly apply your foundation to larger areas for a beautiful airbrushed finish, while the micro-end allows for the most accurate precision in even the smallest spaces. This high-quality brush is extremely soft and great for even the most sensitive skin. I really like the dual ended nature of this brush and this both ends are as high quality as eachother with the smaller brush working perfectly for concealer and corrector, and the larger side for foundation. The bristles are super soft, and silky and they leave a genuinely flawless finish to my base.”
IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Wand Ball Powder Brush worth $48/£38
Described as; “This luxuriously soft, rounded and tapered brush picks up and applies the perfect amount of powder for your most beautiful, airbrushed complexion! Featuring ultra-plush, award-winning Heavenly Luxe™ synthetic hair, a soft-touch handle and precision-cut brush head, it truly does the work for you to deliver an instantly poreless, optical-blurring finish every time. To use, dust your favorite loose and pressed powders all over your face and décolleté using gentle, sweeping motions for natural-looking, flawless results that will surely make you smile.” I think this might be my favourite powder brush I’ve ever found as it’s fantastic as sweeping powder all over the skin, but the ball design of the brush head allows for a greater level of coverage should I be using a powder foundation and I like the head of the brush is tapered ever so slightly so it feels nicely under the eyes to set my under-eye concealer.
IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe No Tug Dual Ended Eyeshadow Brush worth $24/£19
IT Cosmetics say; “This must-have, dual-ended brush flawlessly applies your entire eye look—from base shadow to crease shade to liner—without tugging on your delicate eyelid area. Featuring ultra-plush, award-winning Heavenly Luxe™ hair, a soft-touch handle and precision-cut brush heads, it gently glides on pigment for a smooth, airbrushed application that lasts! While the large, fluffy end is perfect for sweeping your favorite cream and powder eyeshadows all over your lid and crease, the smudger brush effortlessly blends below your lower lash line for a gorgeous eyeliner effect. It truly does the work for you to deliver beautiful, eye-opening results every time.”
I can’t believe how amazing the value is with this brush set as it’s only £44.50 but the combined value is £149 for the Brush Roll and the four brushes (which is technically six brushes as two of the brushes are dual-ended). I think this would be a great gift for those just starting out with makeup or even those who already have a great makeup collection as they’re going to appreciate the high quality of these brushes. If you’re in the market for some new brushes, I cannot recommend this set enough as the value for money is fantastic and the brush roll is really useful for everyday use or for when you travel.
