It Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow Skin-Transforming Healthy Flush Blushing Bronzer ($32) is a new all-in-one blush, bronzer, and highlighter palette that the brand released in three different shade selections recently. As you know, It Cosmetics has been expending their Confidence Skincare Collection lately so, at the moment you can get your hands on Confidence in a Cream as well as the new Confidence in an Eye Cream but the range is also now extending to makeup as well. After trying out Confidence in a Glow I actually left to experience hoping they’d go even further with this line of products. I’m hoping they do more in this color collection in the future because even though I’m not a fond fan of the skincare, I absolutely loved the blush.
I think It Cosmetics has proven again and again with formulas like their Bye Bye Pores Blush, Ombre Radiance Blush, and Vitality Cheek Flush Stain, that they know blush and they know how to do the formula well. They prove this yet again with Confidence in Your Glow! I was very impressed with this formula and excited too because lately It Cosmetics has been a bit of a meh experience with me. Some of their newest skincare launches have been a tad mediocre and the Sephora offerings weren’t quite as great as I had hoped for.
Never the less, all is forgiven and forgotten after trying these new blushes out.
It Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow are available in three shade selections and come housed in a sturdy ombre cardboard compact that a flap silver emblem closure featuring the brand’s name. It’s a very pretty presentation! These are quite generously sized and hold 0.521 oz of blush. There’s also a new Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder Brush to apply these blushes but it is a little expensive at $48 just for the brush. I’ll be reviewing the brush in a later post but keep in mind the best way to purchase both the brush and the blush would be from qvc.com as they package up both for $35 which is basically like getting the brush for $3 and some change.
Confidence in Your Glow is talc-free formula which apparently contains a host of anti-aging ingredients as well as the popular It Cosmetics Drops of Light Technology. Now, this blush formula does have a orange scent much like the Confidence in a Cream formula. I thought the scent was very pleasant and an enjoyable experience however, if you’re sensitive to fragrance in your makeup or skincare it might be a deal breaker. The scent is very strong, how I wish the Sweet Peach Palette was as strong as this, however, it does seem to disappear once applied to my face.
The ombree design is made up of three shades which include a highlighter, blush, and bronzer shade. Since the palette is so big you can easily use the shades individually should you like or you can just swipe your brush across all three (which is what I did) and apply. Whether you’re using the One-Sweep Wonder Brush or a regular blush blush you’ll find that you can easily pick up all three shades easily which results in adding a touch of luminosity, warmth, and color to your cheeks and face. The bronzer adds just a touch of nice warmth while the highlighter adds a hint of luminosity to the final finish of the blush. It’s really a no brainer application. But of course, as I said, if you wish to use the shades individually it isn’t hard to dip into each separately.
You’ll find that the formula is soft, silky, and powdery but not chalky nor dry. It applies beautifully with a smooth, even finish that doesn’t look cakey nor does it cling to drier skin or unevenly textured skin. It’s very, very pigmented so, you’ll want to use a fiber brush or a lighter hand during application. It wore like a champ for me and looked as bright, fresh, and as vibrant as when I applied it after 10 hours of wear.
It Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow was a raving success for me. I can’t express how beautifully textured these are, how fantastically they wear, and how gorgeous they look on my face. It Cosmetics did a fine job with the blush and I’m sticking a Muse Approval on it.
Don’t miss these.
If you need a suggestion for a shade to buy, I highly recommend Instant Warm Glow!
