It Cosmetics sent over their line of three Confidence in Your Glow Palettes ($32 each), which are all-in-one palettes that include a highlighter, blush and bronzer in three coordinated shades. Although this isn’t a brand I know extensively, I thought it best to post these as they may be of interest. These are available at Ulta Beauty and QVC online.
As we launch into the summer months, I’ve been craving a bronzer that gives me that natural flush of pink, red or warmth that mimics the look of skin that’s seen some a kiss of sun . Of course, no single powder can do all that. A separate blush and bronzer is the only way to give a natural looking effect. Pop a highlighter in there and you are good to go. The packaging is reinforced cardboard, which isn’t ideal for traveling but serviceable for home use. Notice that the One Sweep Wonder Brush ($48) (above) has a flat, duo-fiber soft and feathery head that is designed to lightly pick up the very soft, merged powder of these products. This is Instant Warm Glow:
This format is similar to Kevin Aucoin’s The Neon Bronzer ($58), with the highlight on the left, the blush in the middle and the bronzer on the right. The One Sweep Wonder Brush is narrow enough to pick up each shade individually, although a small-headed brush of another type (a typical highlighter brush) would do as well. Here are all three shades–Instant Warm Glow, Instant Natural Glow, and Instant Nude Glow.
The texture of these is extremely soft and pigmented. Using a typical blush brush picks up more product than I’m used to–I can see why the One Sweep Wonder Brush has duo-fiber styled bristles. You do not need much to get significant color, at least on my fair skin tone. Also, the powder is very, very soft. The colors are summer-wonderful. My favorite was Nude Glow, but all of them gave that “day in the sun” glow. The highlighter shades were fabulous. Swatches:
So pretty!! Once applied to the skin, the texture of these was quite nice. They weren’t the most super-finely milled, but extremely nice. The colors are gorgeous.
These were sent without charge for consideration for review.
