I have a HUGE collection of blushes and bronzers BUT when it comes to illuminators, I have very few and they are in liquid form. I love the way illuminators can “bring you to life” even during the coldest days of Winter. They are the perfect way to brighten you up. So, when I was given the opportunity by IT Cosmetics to review this innovative product – I was more than excited! In this ginormous disc, you have 1/4 Illuminator, 1/4 Blush, and 1/2 Bronzer, and they include ingredients that will make you feel good about using them!
According to the IT Cosmetics Website, “IT Cosmetics founder Jamie Kern Lima works with leading plastic surgeons to develop innovative, high-performance color cosmetics infused with the latest breakthroughs in anti-aging technology.”
“INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY IS “IT”
These can be used individually, or you can swirl or layer them together for a nice, fresh look! I preferred to layer them on – first, I contoured my cheeks with the bronzer, applied the blush on the apples of my cheeks by smiling and then applied illuminator above the contoured and blushed cheeks. I also applied illuminator under the archs of my eyebrows and towards the bottom ends. I also applied the illuminator above my eyebrows.
As you can see, the bronzer applies nice and sheer to work with YOUR skintone. The blush is highly pigmented, so you can either apply with a light or heavy hand depending on the look you’re going for. The illuminator is the perfect highlighter for all skintones. And, swirled, it’s quite flattering, as well.
The next item I was sent for review was the Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss is Joyful, a nice browned coral. Moisturizing and not heavy at all – I really loved this gloss! I wore it as a “palette cleanser” for the lipsticks I’ve been wearing, and it felt really nice on. I was more than thrilled with the teardrop applicator – my very favorite way to put on lip gloss and lipstick!
And, finally, when you put the products together, this is what you get!
I found all of these really flattering and I would recommend them for ANY skintone because the shades are quite universal. Definitely a great look for the Winter.
