Today we will talk about Innovative Technology Cosmetics or popularly known as It Cosmetics. The beauty community is talking about their products and how effective they were especially if you have problematic skin. Did they just say problematic skin? Oh, they got my full attention right there! So I searched reviews and demo videos of their products and after watching them, I already want to try them out.

If there are makeup products that you will not see in my vanity, that will be the BB and CC Creams. I told you a lot of times that I don’t have great skin; I tried them before and I did not like it. Aside from very minimal coverage, my face became the definition of “OIL SLICK FACE”, so no.

Of course, I wanted to try these type of products because I don’t always do a full makeup look. There are days when I just want to look good but with less effort. So I picked three items, (originally 4, but their famous Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer was not available that time) and tested them out. Now because the brand is not available here, I searched and found out that their products are sold in Beautylish.com and they deliver to Singapore. (Yey for that!) And now, let’s discuss them one by one 🙂

1. Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Correcting Cream

This cream is packaged in a small glass jar and when you open the lid, you will notice that the product that is similar to a foundation consistency. It reminds me of the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer and they are both packaged in a jar but the Kevyn Auocoin Skin Enhancer is more concentrated.

This cream is used to neutralize not just the redness of the skin but also addresses other concerns like scars, age spots and blemished skin to name a few. So in short, the content of this small jar can replace your colour correcting creams.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Review

Bye Bye Redness cream can be worn alone or under makeup. I opt for the second choice and it works as a beautiful base for my La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation. I combined these two and hello, perfect skin!

This product comes in one universal shade.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Review

Price:

  • Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Correcting Cream is sold at 32 USD and you get 11 ml worth of product. 

PROs:

  • The product is true to its promise and I really love that it functions not only as a correcting cream but also like that of a concealer.
    • When I used the product, I did not use much concealer unlike before.
  • A little goes a long way.
    • You do not need so much; a few tiny dots and it can already cover the entire face.
  • Light on the face.
    • Though I used it as a base for my foundation, I did not feel that I was wearing too much makeup on my face.
    • Also, it did not change the consistency/formula of my foundation.
  • Scent-free
  • Made in the USA.

CONs: 

AVAILABILITY

  • The brand is not available locally (SG) and at this time they company only ships to the US and US territories, but as mentioned they are sold in Beautylish.com and  you get free shipping when you order a minimum of 75 USD.

Lastly,

PACKAGING

  • Though the jar is cute, I prefer to have it in a tube with a pump because it can be unsanitary to dip your fingers into the product.
  • They do not provide any small spatula either

So as a solution, I use a small spatula from my old skincare stuff and use it to get the product.

2. It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Full Coverage Cream

    • This is the product that you may want to use when you are on a beach or in summer.
  2. Base of your makeup

3. It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder

My last compact foundation was the MAC Studio Fix Plus and I gave that away because it clogged my pores. Since then I moved away powder foundations and preferred liquid type instead. At the moment I only use 2 translucent powders:

  • Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Powder and 
  • Shu Uemura’s Dual Fit Pressed Powder

Since I am getting the CC Full Coverage Cream, I also got this for my finishing powder.

The powder is finely-milled and it blends well when applied using a powder brush.

When I tested these products, I made sure that I used them together and this may sound funny but after I applied everything, I looked at the mirror and I literally said “WHOA!”  (in a good way). I was impressed on how these 3 products made my skin look flawless. Although they may not be very long lasting when worn alone, but they work well with other makeup products. Like I said, I used the Bye Bye Redness with my La Prairie foundation and my skin looked great. I think it will be a permanent product in my vanity.

Here is a before and after shot when I tested the 3 products and apologies for the unforgiving eye bags.

It Cosmetics_Review_berryduchess4

As you can see in the “AFTER” photo, the foundation faded on the area where my glasses hits the nose. I did not retouch my face when I took this.

FINAL VERDICT

I think that these are great and I am satisfied with the performance of their products. I will definitely use them often, especially when going out for a coffee date or weekend brunch. Among the three, my favourite is the Bye Bye Redness and I have been using it nonstop. 😉

And there goes my It Cosmetics Haul and review. Until our next time!😉
