It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Illumination Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder gets a worldwide launch this weekend when It Cosmetics debuts their May QVC Today’s Special entitled It’s Your Bye Bye Breakthroughs!
If you’re a fond fan of Bye Bye Pores Pressed which released in 2015 you should be quite excited to see a new illuminating formulation.
Let’s take a look!
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Illumination is now infused with a subtle radiance that apparently gives skin a lit-from-within-in glow. This silky setting powder blurs the appearance of fine lines and pores while setting makeup, mattifying shine and oil, and uses Drops of Light Technology instead of glitter or shimmer to give skin a touch of luminosity.
It Cosmetics houses this white iridescent dual compartment compact which holds the mirror and powder on one level and a secondary compartment on the bottom that stores the sponge for application. It’s 0.31 oz in size and the shade is called Radiant Translucent. It is made in the USA.
As of now, the only way to get it would be on May 11th on QVC.com in the It Cosmetics It’s Your Bye Bye Breakthroughs 5 Piece Set but I’m sure they’ll offer as an individual product release shortly after that set launches.
This is your basic silica that has a talc-free formula which is infused with mica. Like t Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination I really didn’t notice and luminosity when I applied this and I couldn’t help but think, well, it’s a translucent powder and that’s the point of a translucent powder right? Not to be seen! I wasn’t sure how they powder could have a luminous finish and still apply transparent. Anyway, I didn’t really notice shimmer or sparkle or glow from this finish in the least.
It deserves mentioning I do not like Bye Bye Pores Pressed at all. It’s sort of dry, a bit crumbly, and it clings to every little dry area on my face (you can totally see what I mean in my swatch). It might be perfect for oily skin but for this dry skinned girl it’s a bust. It’s also very difficult to apply without looking like a ghost. I’ve always felt like transparent silica is easiest applied when it is loose as you’re less likely to overdue it. One thing it does have going for it would be the fact it really does make your face look incredibly smooth and airbrushed but if you have dry skin you better work at getting yourself super hydrated before applying this as it does cling crazily.
If you Bye Bye Pores Pressed, I’d say It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Illumination is probably something you’ll want to check out for yourself. Although, I will say it’s probably not something you need to rush out and purchase if you already have a full version of the original considering the lack of luminosity here you’ll find that it applies and looks pretty much the same as the original or at least I think so.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Illumination is available now in the Bye Bye Breakthroughs 5-Collection available exclusively at qvc.com.
