I’m not ready for Fall yet but now that some of the makeup launches are hitting stores, I’m actually getting really excited! Funny how that works. I will miss hot days but we are almost to PSL and sweater weather season and I can be down with that too.
I have been checking out a bunch of new launches from It Cosmetics recently and one of the absolute prettiest things I’ve ever seen is their new Bye Bye Pores Blush in Sweet Cheeks. This shade looks in the pan like it has the potential to be a glitter bomb but it totally doesn’t translate that way once it’s on. To me, it looks like a spicy coral with gold flecks. It’s richly pigmented but also forgiving. When I apply it to the apples of my cheeks the gold flecks seem to melt in and create a luminosity that is so pretty that I forget to wear highlighter. I don’t need it!
I’ve used the Bye Bye Pores blush formula in the past and it’s one of my favorites. It Cosmetics also has Je Ne Sais Quoi and Naturally Pretty in this line, both of which are fabulous shades. What sets these blushes apart for me is that they have the blurring effect which seems to delete your pores once its on. If you’ve ever used blushes (especially ones with shimmer) that don’t sit well on your cheeks, you know how bad that can look. Sometimes it will emphasize every pore on your face. I also love that this is “skincare makeup” at its finest- you’re not just getting a beautiful blush but the ingredients have anti-aging silk, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants, and peptides.
If you’re looking for a quick pick me up this week- this is it! I don’t think you could possibly regret something so pretty. It reminds me a lot of Nars Orgasm and I think similarly it will look great on every skin tone.
What do you think of this shade? Is anything from It Cosmetics catching your eye lately? So many great new launches. I’ve linked to some of my favorites below!
