These are the new IT Cosmetics Confidence In Your Glow Skin Transforming Healthy Flush Blushing Bronzer palettes! IT is killing it with the Confidence line packaging, these have gradient covers that mimic the actual product! The medallion on the front provides a magnetic closure, and each have a mirror on the inside.

These palettes are infused with high-performance anti-aging ingredients and talc-free pigments. Also, like the rest of the Confidence line, these have that orange scent to them, and they feature a vitamin-C infused, radiance boosting formula.

First up, we have the palette in Instant Natural Glow.

Left to right: highlighter, blush, bronzer, swipe of all three

This one has the most classic blush and bronzer combination. It has a pink blush and a lighter bronzer and you can see that the combination of all three is still a very natural, peachy shade.

Here we have Instant Warm Glow. The palette lives up to it’s name, it gives the skin a nice warm glow, perfect if you’re pale like me and desperately need a tan lol

This has a more coral tone throughout the palette, and I think this one has my favorite highlighter of the bunch. This one also has a warmer, darker bronzer. The combination of all three here has a bit more sparkle from the highlighter.

Here is Instant Nude Glow.

This is similar in tone to the Instant Warm Glow, but the shades a touch lighter and a bit more natural. It definitely also warms up the skin, especially if you’re on the fairer side, but I can see it being more ‘nude’ on tanner complexions.

This is the new Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder Brush . It’s a flat brush, similar to a contour brush, but it’s domed instead of flat. The bristles are also layered and tapered, so there are shorter bristles on the sides, and they get longer as you get toward the middle and top of the brush. So, what you have is a denser base and a featherier top. It’s almost V shaped when you look at it from the side.

As always, this brush is super soft and feels really nice on the skin. It actually picks up a ton of product! Use it carefully, as you can pick up too much product very easily. It does blend nicely, though. You can use this brush a few different ways: you can use the flat side to apply blush, you can use the top edge to contour with bronzer and you can use the flat side vertically to highlight.

So far, I’ve been using Nude Glow the most, followed by Warm Glow. I did use Natural Glow for Easter, though! Honestly, I don’t think I can pick a favorite, they all have their place depending on the occasion. I’ve been alternating between them depending on my mood that morning. I’m loving the brush! It’s multi-use, which is perfect for this palette. I really like swiping through all the shades to warm up my face and then going back into the bronzer to contour. The highlighters are also super beautiful on their own.

If you are looking for a new cheek palette, these are definitely worth checking out! The Confidence In Your Glow palettes are available on the IT Cosmetics and Ulta websites now!

The products! You get the Bye Bye Pores Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi, the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Power in Translucent, Sunshine in a Compact in Warm and the Perfect Lighting Luminizer in Je Ne Sais Quoi. Love the imprint on the Luminizer!

Swatches! From left to right:

  • Perfect Lighting Luminizer in Je Ne Sais Quoi– This is so beautiful! It’s a gold toned highlighter. The second I swatched it, I fell in love with it. It will give you a really nice sun kissed glow. So pretty.
  • Sunshine in a Compact in Warm– This is a warm, matte bronzer. I use this every day to warm up my face, and I love it! I’m super pale, and I use a fluffy brush and it looks very natural. The color is very buildable though.
  • Bye Bye Pores Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi– This is a matte, medium pink blush. I use this with a fluffier blush brush. It isn’t too bright when it’s blended it out, but it is buildable.
  • Bye Bye Pores Pressed Power in Translucent– The classic pressed powder. This is one of my favorites. I use it as a setting powder for my under eyes, and I love it. It really does minimize your pores.

Since I already have the blush, pressed powder and bronzer, I knew those were going to be winners… but my favorite thing in this palette is the luminizer. I seriously want it in a giant compact. It’s so beautiful.

Overall, this is a perfect every day palette. You can use it for work, for going out, to create more natural looks, or go bolder. It’s super versatile and is full of A+ products. I love it!

This retails for $42, and you can already find it on Ulta’s website!

The back of the palette has this snazzy booklet with contour and highlighting tips.

Top row: Soft Contour, Light Contour and matte Highlight

Bottom row: Medium Contour, Deep Contour and Radiance Highlight

Close up of the Heavenly Luxe You Sculpted Contour & Highlight brush (No. 18). It’s flat, like medium density and super soft. The brush isn’t too short and compact so it’s great for packing on and diffusing the color.

ITYouSculpted8

Top row: Soft Contour, Light Contour and matte Highlight

Bottom row: Medium Contour, Deep Contour and Radiance Highlight

These shades are all super soft, pigmented and blendable. I’ve been using the Soft Contour to contour, it’s the perfect shade for my very pale skin. I usually have an issue with contour shades because I am so pale, lots of bronzers look too orange on me, but the Soft Contour is perfect. I’ve also used the Matte Highlight on my brow bones and the rest of my face for highlighting. It looks lighter on the skin than in the pan, and it’s great because it’s a nude shade instead of white, so it looks much more natural. The radiance highlight is also beautiful and gives you a natural glow. One of the best things about this palette is the range of colors, you can use it if you’re tan, pale or anything in between.

This is honestly the contour palette I’ve been looking for, and I’m totally obsessed with the brush! If you’re looking for a contour kit or brush, definitely check these out!

IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Essentials Eyeshadow Palette Swatches and Review!

More spring makeup from IT Cosmetics! If this doesn’t get you in the mood for spring, I don’t know what will.

The packaging. It’s so cute! I love the blush color and the rose gold lettering. The cover is also pillowy, and it’s small enough to be perfect for travel.

ItNaturallyPrettyEssentials3

The inside is also that rose gold, and the shade names are underneath in black. They are a little hard to see because of the reflective packaging, so here they are:

Top row:

  • Imagine
  • Wonder
  • Dream

Bottom row:

  • Passion
  • Intrigue
  • Allure

And the highlighter is called Transforming Hello Light.

ItNaturallyPrettyEssentials4

Left to right:

  • Imagine- matte light cream
  • Wonder- matte cream
  • Dream- matte light nude blush

ItNaturallyPrettyEssentials5

Left to right:

  • Passion- matte light brown
  • Intrigue- matte medium brown
  • Allure- matte blue-black
  • Transforming Hello Light- shimmery pearl

I apologize if the colors are hard to see, I’m pretty pale and most of the shades are light, so they tend to blend into my skin.

My shade descriptions are different than the ones on the IT Cosmetics website, because I call them how I see them.

These shadows are super soft, easy to apply and blend. They’re light but nicely pigmented. For a neutral palette, I think the colors are actually pretty interesting, especially Dream and Allure. This palette is perfect for everyday and the shades can easily go from day to night. The highlighter is beautiful! It’s not sparkly, but has the perfect amount of shimmer.

I’ve been using this palette every day since I got it, I think it’s great for work. I’ve been using either Wonder or Dream on the lid with a combo of Passion and Intrigue in the crease. I’ve used both Imagine and Transforming Hello light as an eyebrow highlight.

Overall, I’m really enjoying this palette! I was ready for something new for spring, so this was exactly what I needed. If you’re in the market for a new matte/neutral palette, definitely check this one out. It’s available on the IT Cosmetics website and retails for $28.

What’s your favorite spring makeup?

 

 

IT Cosmetics My Sculpted Face Palette Swatches and Review!

Disclaimer: this item was sent to me for review

I’ve been wanting to try a contour palette for a while now, especially now that I’ve gotten into bronzer. And when I got the opportunity to try the My Sculpted Face palette from IT Cosmetics, I was so excited!

MySculptedFaceThe packaging. I usually love IT Cosmetics packaging, but I think this could use some updating.

MySculptedFace3 MySculptedFace2You get 6 different highlighters/bronzers. Love the logo in the actual powders. MySculptedFace4The top two are the highlighters. It’s hard to see, but the one on the left is matte white, and the one on the right is a shimmery highlighter, the only shimmery shade in the palette. It looks pink in the palette, but has a slight white cast.

The two middle shades are perfect for contouring on pale skin, just like mine!

The last two shades are the darkest. The one on the left is actually great for bronzing up the skin, just be careful not to use too much! The right shade is way too dark for me, so I’m not sure that I’ll be able to use it on my face… unless I manage to get a killer tan lol.

All the shades are buttery, soft and smooth. They are all very pigmented and blend beautifully. I love that there is a range of shades, so you can use it all year round! I think this is definitely a great starter palette if you’re looking to try out contouring.
