Back in January a QVC TSV released featuring two brand new products from IT Cosmetics – the Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+ ($38.00 // ULTA Beauty) and the Heavenly Skin™ Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush ($48.00 // ULTA Beauty). If you didn’t get a chance to snag that deal, fear not, the products are now available for individual sale!
Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+. The coverage on this foundation blew me away! I didn’t like the included sponge at all and found that the formula was best applied with the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Flat Top Buffing Foundation Brush #6. It helped to provide the fuller coverage that I look for and buffed the product out evenly on the skin.
The foundation did wear all day but quite a bit of my oil shined through. I was able to blot to remove the oil and am happy to report that doing so didn’t strip the product from my face. I think that this foundation formula would be best on normal-to-dry skin, or skin just not as oily as mine. LOVE the coverage and wear, but I’ve got to mattify as much as possible!
Below all 7 shades are swatched. For reference my face currently matches up the best with Light but the Medium is light enough that in the Summer I’d probably have to use that.
Heavenly Skin™ Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush. I’m not a fan of the brush for applying this foundation. I think if you’re looking for a lighter coverage it’ll be fine, and it does buff the product well. I prefer a fuller coverage so the Flat Top Kabuki is more my preference.
Have you had a chance to try out the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+ yet? What are your thoughts?
Of course they recommend it along with their hot selling IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream ($48.00 // Sephora) which is fabulous for normal-to-dry skin, particularly in these cold, winter months!
PS: Can we talk about this teaser that was tied to the PR package?! EYES!
