Over the last couple of months you’ve probably spotted me raving a fair amount about makeup and skincare brand It Cosmetics; well today I’m here to do some more raving. I was lucky enough to receive two more of their products and after using them for the last five weeks I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts with you.
IT COSMETICS OMBRE RADIANCE BLUSH IN JE NE SAIS QUOI*
The It Cosmetics Ombre Radiance Blush in Je Ne Sais Quois is a bestselling product from It Cosmetics but one that I had actually rarely seen until I received the glorious product. It is an ombre blusher designed to be your blush and highlight in one, adding a natural blush of colour and glow in one sweep. Like their Ombre Radiance Bronzer, each of the sections can be used either separately or together.
I’ll be honest here, similarly to the bronzer, I’ve actually never used each of the shades separately but I do love that this is an option and should really give it a go. I tend to instead swirl my Spectrum blusher brush through all three shades and pop the colour onto the apples of my cheek to add a gorgeous flush of colour.
It brightens and adds a touch of luminosity but at the same time it is incredibly pigmented, so it’s one to be careful with if you pick it up. Before popping the blush onto my cheeks I tend to tap off the access to ensure I don’t add too much pigment. This works really well.
The result of this blusher is a gorgeous rosy-pink shade, that lasts really well. I mentioned it in my post all about 3 products you need for Spring for very good reason, and if you’re after a swatch there is a swatch of the blusher in this post too.
IT COSMETICS SKIN-REJUVENATING HYDRATING PRIMER SERUM*
The second product I received was the It Cosmetics Skin-Rejuvenating Hydrating Primer Serum. Primers are something I often struggle with, I don’t find they necessarily stop my makeup from breaking around my nose, so when I spotted this was a hydrating formula that is incredibly well reviewed I was super excited to try it.
The primer is said to be sensory treatment skin serum and primer in one, and contains caviar extract, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides with a silk enriched formula.
When I first used this product I couldn’t believe how thick the formula is, you can definitely immediately tell that it is going to be moisturising. This did make me wonder if the product could work, but my problem area around my nose is drier so it also made me think it could actually work.
It takes a while to set and sink in, but once it has, a silk canvas has been created; a canvas which is super easy to apply your base makeup on top of. It helps your makeup look flawless and I have to say when I use this I don’t notice my foundation flake anywhere near as much. Not all of my bases will last all day on it, but if they don’t, if I use this I don’t get the usual breaking up around my nose – a definite win for me.
Once again, this is another product from It Cosmetics that I have fallen in love with and would recommend to anyone.
Have you tried It Cosmetics before, and these products?
