New on It Cosmetics are a range of complexion products including primer, and some setting powders to their Bye Bye Pore line with different finishes and textures to finish the complexion at its best. These launches consists of the Your Skin But Better Makeup Primer+, Bye Bye Pore Illuminating Powder, Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder and Bye Bye Pore Bronzer. One of the key to make the foundation and tined moisturizers last longer is a good hydrating primer and a nice setting powder to make everything stay put together. These launches are designed for all skin textures (normal, dry, oily as well as sensitive). I have never been so impressed with a primer and setting powder before.
Up First is the Your Skin But Better Makeup Primer+ (C$52.00 for 1 oz./ 30 mL) is an oil free formula that keeps the skin hydrated throughout the day and extend the wear of your base. As many of you know I’m not a huge fan of primers in general only the ones that gives skin a nice illumination + hydration and on daily basis a good hydrating serum or a booster does the job for me. But this time it was a bit different experience – I have been in love with the Your Skin But Better CC+ for a every long time and some how I knew I would like this primer. I am really impressed with how this primer feels and how it makes a visible difference in how foundation applies. The primer gives the skin a soft feel and preps the skin well. I found with this primer not only the foundation applies nicely it also give a better coverage. I doesn’t feel heavy, greasy and doesn’t have that silicone feel that many primers have which it doesn’t work for my skin. It also claims to refined the look of the pores which is some thing you need to try to experiment your self since my skin is almost poreless .
Up next it’s all about powders, they have introduced a range of setting powders for your complexion in different finishes and textures. The powders are meant to set your foundation, Bye Bye Pore Illuminating Powder (C$40.00 for 0.31 oz./ 9 g) is a translucent pressed powder that is infused with Drops of Light Technology which adds a nice look of radiance. It has a nice blurring effect on complexion while helps to minimize shine but not matte. The formula is without glitter and shimmers which I find is gives a nice natural looking skin. As many of you know I don’t like the matte finish look of the skin, I’m mostly all about glowing complexion and this is a perfect way to keep the skin looking glowing while set the foundation in place. It comes in a nice compact form with a sponge applicator for easy application while on the go. Next is the Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder (C$40.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a mattifying loose setting translucent powder that instantly smooths out the look of pores and imperfections with an airbrushed finish. Its designed with Optical Blurring Technology which blurs out the look of wrinkles and smooths away any imperfections. It’s also formulated with anti aging ingredients including real silk and hydrolyzed collagen and peptides. It adds a soft silky veil and doesn’t feel dry at all. It does control the oiliness of complexion to offer a more matte finish look but it doesn’t feel flat matte at all. Its one of the loose powders I have been reaching out mostly for the past couple of weeks and have been a game changer for makeup routine. Last but not least Bye Bye Pore Bronzer (C$40.00 for 0.3oz./ 8.6 g) is a pressed bronzer powder that carries a blurring effect. This comes in a universally flattering bronzing shade that carries a nice warm under tone and fine golden shimmer which instantly gives a sun-kissed glow to your skin. The powder it self is quite fine which doesn’t set in pores and gives a nice airbrush finish. This is one of the most beautiful bronzers to give the complexon that all over warmed.
Bottom line its absolutely amazing range of powders for every one plus a primer base that I think works for every one. The Your Skin But Better Makeup Primer+ is a one of the primers that have really worked for me and offers a nice hydrating formula that’s perfect for all skin texture. As always powders don’t do much to my skin and I have had lost a hope for finding a powder that would work amazingly beside just couple that I have. The range is amazing, all the texture of these powder feels silky while it smooths out fine lines and wrinkles by giving that airbrush look. You can now find all these newly launches from It Cosmetics in store an online at Sephora and Itcosmetics.ca.
