It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette Review & Swatches
It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette will be exclusively available in the It Cosmetics It’s All About You 5 Piece Set that launches as a QVC Today’s Special Value this June.
This gorgeous CC+ Radiance Palette includes three powders and is a refreshing change from the It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Vitality Face Disk that the brand typically includes in some of their Today’s Special Value Sets. This is a slim case with a generously sized mirror that includes a new It Cosmetics CC+ Brightening Powder as well as blush and bronzer.
If I had my way the new CC+ Brightening Powder should be sold in a compact alone (I don’t doubt at some point It Cosmetics will do just that) as I am in love with it!
The It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette promises and even, brighter skin tone using the CC+ Brightening Powder to instantly brightening skin and add radiance as well as corrects and evens it. You can follow up with the gorgeous CC+ Bronzer and CC+ Brightening Blush to add warmth and color to your cheeks and face!
The CC+ Brightening Powder is probably my favorite part of this palette. This quite reminds me of MAC’s Adjust Prep Prime CC Colour Correcting Powder but it is a smidge darker. This is a warmer shade of beige with flex of color correcting pigments in the mix which include green, lavender, dark brown, and yellow. I don’t think these smaller pigments will do very much to color correct skin but using the powder all swirled up together you’ll notice that it does brighten skin, will slightly dull redness, and evens skin tone. I personally liked how it brightened up my entire complexion and just gave my skin a softer, more refined finish. The powder is very silky and buffs out to a soft finish without clinging to my drier areas.

Next to the powder you’ll find a heavily pigmented shade of spicy coral CC+ Brightening Blush and next to that a very dark, warm shade of CC+ Bronzer. Both the bronzer and blush are very, very pigmented so keep in mine a little goes a very long way. The bronzer is a touch too dark for me so I have to go very lightly with it during application! The brush is equally pigmented so I applied a subtle dusting on my cheek bones in my below image. Both have an excellent formula with a silky yet slightly velvety texture. They wear quite long particularly the blush which didn’t fade for a solid eight hours after my initial application. They are a touch powdery but not chalky or dry!
Below I’m using the CC+ Brightening Powder on top of NYC Color Cosmetics BB Creme with a dusting of the CC+ Brightening Blush. I think the powder really makes my skin and eases the dullness and lackluster complexion I typically have to deal with!
Overall, this is a really nifty palette! I fear I won’t use the bronzer much as I’m just not a bronzer girl and this one is a bit dark for me so I have hopes that It Cosmetics will launch the Brightening Powder on its own one day soon!
You’ll be able to purchase the It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette in the It Cosmetics It’s All About You Set that includes four other full size It Cosmetics products early this June on QVC.com! A full review of the set is upcoming shortly.
