IT Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette

A while back I got the IT Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette from Ulta. It was an impulse buy. I had seen it on the website for a while and always thought to myself that it looked like something I’d really like to try. Then one day as I was stocking up on items, I impulsively added it to my cart and that was that. Now that I’ve used it a number of times over the past 1-2 months, I feel like I have a good idea on how I feel about it.

The case for the palette is a soft cardboard that has a holographic type finish. It’s very sturdy and has a magnetic close. I love that it’s not the type of case to get fingerprints all over it.

The palette contains 3 powders: a brightener, blush and bronzer. IT Cosmetics is all about enhancing your natural beauty so while these powders look like they’d pack a punch, they are very natural looking on the skin and not too pigmented which may or may not be what you’re looking for.

Each of the powders is supposed to be Anti-Aging (another thing the company is known for) and contain color correcting pigments. The product description says,

…enhance and even-out the appearance of your natural skin tone while adding the perfect sun-kissed bronze, the complexion brightening blush, and an all over-skin brightening radiance that will boost the warmth and radiance of your skin while blurring the look of fine lines and pores.
Who is it for: Every woman who wants full coverage that looks and feels like her own skin!

So what do I think? Like previously mentioned, the powders give a very natural look to the skin. There’s really no way you can overdo it on the blush or bronzer here. Despite that, it’s also not the kind of product that you need to dig into to see any payoff on your skin. It’s just that it gives a very natural appearance on your face which I like because even when I’m wearing a full face of makeup I tend to lean towards more natural looks.

Is the product something you have to have? Probably not. I do like it so I don’t regret my impulse buy at all, but it’s not something that I absolutely need in my life. It’s great for travel so that’s another plus. I would say if you’re interested in checking out the palette, I don’t think you’d regret it especially if you like a compact palettes for face/cheek products and you favor a natural look.

Have any of you tried this product out? I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
