I do love a blush, a quick and easy flush of colour can make a real difference and disguise a lot of exhaustion! IT Cosmetics recently added to their Bye Bye range with a collection of three blushes. I have all three beautiful shades to share with you including swatches
The IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blushes come packaged in a sleek black compact, the perfect size for my handbag! The compact houses a good sized mirror making it easy for application either at home or on the go. Each blush is imprinted with the recognisable IT logo.
The Bye Bye Pores Blush promises to:
- Disguise and reduce the appearance of pores
- Not settle into fine lines
- Universal buildable shades to suit all
If you are a regular reader you will know I love skincare benefits in my makeup and IT Cosmetics always include some great ingredients in their formulas to benefit our skin. Bye Bye Pores Blush is no exception and contains:
- Silk – A talc free formula!
- Hydrolyzed Collagen
The three shades in the collection are:
- Naturally Pretty – warm peach
- Sweet Cheeks – peachy/pink
- Je Ne Sais Quoi – classic soft pink
The formula is a cream to powder texture which feels lighter than air and is super soft. The silky formula applies smoothly feeling weightless on my skin. It is easy to are easy to apply and blends easily, the shades are buildable making it effortless to layer and achieve my preferred finish. It does not crease or sit in my fine lines which is a big win as so many blushes have taken up residence in the past! It is the closest I can get to applying a filter to my face, it has a blurring effect which hides my pores and leaves my skin looking smooth and even whilst still maintaining a natural appearance, my skin but better! It brightens my complexion leaving me looking healthy and full of life (even on those days of three hours sleep!). The IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blushes are suitable for every skin type and age, it’s silk formula does not settle which makes it perfect for mature skin and disguisingfine lines.
Each blush is beautifully pigmented and takes little time to apply (perfect for those manic mornings!), I like to sweep the colour up my cheek bones to lift my complexion. They are long lasting, I have not found any need to reapply throughout the day. They remove easily at the end of the day with my normal remover which is always a plus, I do not like excess scrubbing! I find the formula is gentle on my skin causing no irritation at all. The blushes all work well with foundation and on bare skin.
I love how each shade is unique, Naturally Pretty is a beautiful warm peach with a matte finish which instantly brightens my complexion, Je Ne Sais Quoi is a classic pink which starts with of a lovely sheer finish and can be built up to a beautiful natural soft pink if you want a little more pop you can never look overdone in this shade (great if you are an over enthusiastic applied like myself!). Sweet Cheeks is a stunning peachy pink which has a touch of luminosity, it instantly gives the complexion a hint of radiance with a touch of golden shimmer.
I adore all of the shades being the blush fan that I am! They all lift my complexion and leave me looking healthy, if I had to pick a favourite it would have to be Sweet Cheeks, I do love a little bit of an extra dewy glow! I also like to mix Je Ne Sais Quoi and Naturally Pretty together, they layer and blend well complimenting each other beautifully. I am a fan of easily achievable natural finish makeup and the Bye Bye Pores Blushes have not disappointed me helping me to achieve the perfect pop of colour with a healthy smooth finish!
