Ever have a couple of those kids and just can’t pick a favorite? Like you love all of them so much it just feels wrong so you love them all equally? That’s probably the best way to describe how I feel about all three of the IT Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow™ Skin-Transforming Healthy Flush Blushing Bronzer ($32.00 // ULTA Beauty) shades (though, please note, my kids rank well above makeup 😉 ).
The IT Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow™ is the latest innovation from the brand that is touted as being a quick way to “get the look of an instant all-over vitality-filled glow, plus a boost of brightening and radiant warmth, in one simple step” – and you all know I’m always down for simplifying my daily beauty routine.
Three shades are available in:
Instant Warm Glow // your richest shade of bronzer for the deepest color payoff, with a gorgeous peachy-pink flush for your brightening radiance
Instant Natural Glow // for a natural rosy kiss of radiance and natural boost of warmth
Instant Nude Glow // for the softest, sheerest naturally pretty glow
The website states “From the sensorial experience of the fresh orange scent to the powerful vitamin C-infused radiance-boosting and brightening formula, Confidence in Your Glow transforms your complexion with high-performance, anti-aging ingredients and talc-free, ultra-luxe pigments. Combined with proprietary Drops of Light Technology, your skin will feel instantly softer and smoother with a younger, airbrushed appearance! Developed with plastic surgeons and perfect for all skin types and tones, this compact is truly your one-step wonder for your most beautiful-looking skin”.
There’s a scent?! Yes. I had no idea until I read that description that there was. Once I read it and stuck my nose in a palette I could catch a whiff of orange but I couldn’t tell there was a fragrance at all when I was photographing, swatching or applying.
Right off, the pigment of all three of these bronzers is almost TOO intense. It’s that good. They recommend the IT COSMETICS Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder Brush with it and I think it’s a good idea to pick it up or to at least use something similar. This particular brush will give a light “on-sweep” effortless application. It was a little tricky to use the first time but easy to get the hang of.
One minor detail I don’t like is that the three colors included in each bronzer palette are all combined in the same well, giving the powder that beautiful ombre look. Which doesn’t sound much like a negative, but here it comes…. I’m hoping that once used, the shades won’t combine up as much leaving them to not look as pretty. It’s not a deal breaker, and no one loves an ombre more than me, but with continued use it’ll probably stress me out more. Note: that never bothered me with the Ombre Blushes and Ombre Bronzers but I think because there is a bronzer shade involved here as a trio it’ll mix up too much (it may not either, just a thought into the future). Now that the swatch and review process is done I’ll probably use separate brushes so as not to mix the shades together too much. You don’t have to tell me twice about my issues *eye roll* lol!
When you use any of these three shades you’re going to want to use a very light hand (regardless of what brush you use) and barely graze your skin with the product. You can build it up as needed, but unless you have a tan-to-deep skintone it’s absolutely not necessary. I haven’t personally tested the products on a darker skintone, but I can’t imagine anyone needing to build this up. (check out Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog’s swatches).
All three applied well, wore all day and blended easily. These bronzers are stunning, you guys… and don’t even get me started on the packaging. I LOVE it. It’s sturdy, includes a mirror and is travel friendly.
