Makeup Wars: it Cosmetics CC Radiance Palette

Makeup Wars

For this edition of Makeup Wars, we are all talking about the it Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette.

I don’t know if you are very familiar with it Cosmetics or not, but I got to know them from watching founder Jamie Lima introduce it on QVC. Jamie suffers from Rosacea like I do, so it is always amazing to see her using her products to cover and reduce the appearance of the redness. In addition, she makes sure to include the latest in anti-aging technologies in her products, which is a must for me nowadays.

When I heard about the new CC+ Radiance Palette, which is good for color correcting (*hence that CC+ part of the name), brightening, bronzing and blushing, I knew I wanted to try it out.

Have you guys heard the quote “Use the right tool for the job”? It means that what you are doing will go smoother and easier when you use the best thing to make it happen. It really applies (*see what I did there?) to using the right brushes with this palette, in my case. With my redness, I have to be careful about applying my blush pretty specifically. With the angled French Boutique Blush Brush I was able to get a light application just where I wanted it to be. And, I think we all remember when I showed off my bronzer skills, right? Well, the Heavenly Luxe Wand Ball Brush actually makes that pretty difficult for me to screw up so much now. It let me apply a lot less at a time, to build up to heavy, of which I am too lazy to do. So, a light application really works for me. Of course, my skills still aren’t the greatest, but, this is a big improvement.

But, my favorite of the three powders is the Brightening one. It warms up my sallow skin, but not in a sparkly vampire kind of way. And, because it doesn’t have any talc in it, it doesn’t make my skin itch to where I want to scratch it off 5 minutes after putting it on. It’s also so hella easy to put on with the Heavenly brush, that I can slap it on with my eyeliner and mascara and I am set for the day, even without thinking about it.

All of this and anti-aging ingredients, too? Yeah, I think I’m set for the winter with this palette. What about you guys? Do you have any specific face brightening items you use to get thru the dank Winter? Let me know below, and then you need to go check out what the other lovelies said on their sites about the palette.

    Agreed on the Ball Brush (and just about everything else here) – it’s perfect for a light, buildable pigmentation!
