It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores HD Finishing Powder w/Hydro Collagen& Brush
This is another great product. Recieved it today along with some other It Cosmetics products. Im so excited! This is great to use with the CC cream or any other liquid foundation. It is so silky, vanishes pores and don't settle into lines. GREAT product.

This powder is awful. It flies all over the place like talcum powder and does NOTHING for your pores or even setting your makeup. What a waste of money. Every IT product I've tried has been a major disappointment.
The powder is very nice, but it is not color-free! It gives my face somewhat of a pasty look! My face is already fair, so this doesn't work for me. The brush is amazing, and I will continue to use it with my mineral powders. I will not purchase again, but getting the brush kind of made up for my disappointment...

I love this brush! Really soft and full...feels great on your skin! The powder....just as the others say....you must be very careful and use a SMALL amount. It is white on me but blends in when I just use a little amount. I have to check the mirror before I walk out the door just to be sure it blended well. It will take the "shine" down and give you a matte look but again....use very little...it will last a long time. It's worth the price for the brush alone.

This makes your skin so soft and poorless and does not cakes on like with other powder
I LOVE the brush....LOVE IT....I even like the powder...when it is first applied. It doesn't irritate my eyes or skin...but I don't feel like it really sets my foundation at all. By the end of the day I've got oily skin and the makeup is moving all over the place. Keeping for the brush but not ordering again.
DO NOT BUY
When I saw Jamie demonstrate this she said there was no color and it would just give you an airbrushed look. BEWARE -- it is white like talcum powder and even if you lightly brush on, it looks like there is a film of flour on your face -- haha. So sure, you'll have an airbrushed look -- the look of a floured face. If you have porcelain fair skin -- really really porcelain white, this will work great for you. Otherwise, DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY.
Great finishing powder. Does exactly as described
I love the brush, first off. It feels like a spa treatment. The trick is just to peel off a small piece of the white sticker the powder comes with, to contain the powder in its jar. Once you have done that, you will have less of a powdery mess. After, just lightly tap powder from the container on to the black cap. Swirl your brush, making sure it's a small amount of product, because you don't want to look like a powdered doughnut. Then, in a circular motion, gently apply the powder to your cheeks, nose, forehead, chin, etc. The goal is to give those pores a gentler, smoother, silkier look.
The good thing is when you start with little product, if you don't think its enough, you may build up, slowly, as needed. But again you must have a light hand and not peel off the whole entire sticker it comes with to avoid loss of product and too much powder to the face. Results; a beautiful, airbrush finish with a slight silky look. I love it! You may not notice much but this can be a good thing. At least you aren't looking like a powdery mess. This isn't the same as a foundation.
When I first received the container, I thought it was a bit small for the price, but this product will last me a while. You MUST, MUST be light handed when applying the powder. It may even look like you have little to no product on the brush, but there is product on that brush, I assure you. If your too heavy with the product it will not work as it is purposed to. Remember, we want to look as natural as possible, ladies. So less is MORE! I hope you enjoy this product as much as I do. I also hope this review will help you. Have fun with IT!!
Best For me
I highly recommend this. Smooth as glass and hides pores like no other powder finisher. I've read a few other reviews that state how this cakes and settles in lines. I've got to say that depending on you own oil output, you may need to blot oil with tissue and reapply in the late afternoon. I have older skin that still produces oil in the afternoon and that's all I do to take care of settling powder lines. Also if your applying this in the wrong way like putting too much on, you will get the caking no matter what you use. Watch the video associated with the application to make the most out of this product. I am a makeup junkie and this is the best!
The bye bye pores is a perfect setting powder and all over face finishing powder. It is like brushing silk on your face. It smooths everything out. And it contains anti aging anti-oxidants. Every IT product is awesome!!!
Jamie has made another amazing product!!! This makes my skin feel so soft and the pores just disappear! I recommend this for anyone who wants to look airbrushed. The brush is just heavenly!!! So glad I tried this!
Ran test - not as good as mineral veil (over 50)
Over 50 so powder settling in lines is a BIG issue for me. I have no "brand loyalty" - I just want to look my BEST.
1) Mineral veil looks better "all on it's lonesome" which is key for me. When I tested both on wrinkly part of hands - mineral veil disappeared. "It" finishing powder was cake-y & yellow *and* emphasized lines.
2) Tried on face over "It celebration foundation" (half & half). Ditto.
Though I think "It celebration foundation" is the best foundation ever (lifetime), Mineral Veil is a MUCH better powder.
