It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores HD Illuminator with Wand Ball Brush
wasn't what i expected
This powder made my face really shiny and sparkly and that wasn't what I wanted. I have real oily skin so this didn't help. I ended up returning it :(
OK For Under Age 40
This is a good product for under age 40, & if you don't have wrinkles. The illumination just highlights fine lines. The brush is great……so….you younger girls….this will be great on you.
Not for me
I gave this a try but really didn't get good results. If I used a tiny amount as recommended, I couldn't see it at all. If I used a little more it gave me a very unnatural metallic sheen-not attractive! I really like a natural look and this was too much trouble. I also suspect it dried out my skin a little.
This illuminator gives your skin a subtle glow - no sparkle or glitter. Looks like it will last a long time. Love the brush.
Tricky to use
The only way this works for me is if I cut it by half with Makeup Forevers High Def powder. Otherwise, it makes you look like the Tin Man, as another reviewer said. The brush is excellent, though.
Well if you want to look like you have white metallic skin go for it. However, I am considering keeping this because the brush is nice. I thought this was suppose to minimize the look of pores, nope. I will stick with Mally's finishing powder, far more superior and use separate glow product.
Not for older women
It was way too illuminated on skin, & I used very little. I like her creme Illuminator best. I have precise control with it. I guess if you mixed it with the HD powder it might look better for older women. I'll stick with the HD powder & It creme illuminator, that looks better more natural on me, I'm very fair complexion.
Way Too Much Glow
It was time for me to get new makeup so thought I'd give this a try. I am tired of getting virtually no coverage with Bare Minerals and this looked like it would give coverage and a little glow. It does provide some coverage, which my 59-year-old skin can use, but way too much glow. Even with a very light application, I could find my way home in the dark by the shine on my nose alone. The brush is great too be sure—thus the three stars—but not the actual product.
wonderful luminizer--no glitter
this truly provides a "lit from within" glow. Adds luminosity without sparkle or glitter. Very uplifting and perks up tired skin.
Bye bye pores illuminator
So I agree with another reviewer, Jamie maybe u can tint this so us light girls don't look so white & ghostly. haha very good product though.
Really Enjoy using this
Went to an evening wedding a few weeks ago. Put this Illuminator on as the last step in applying my makeup. I'm 63 years old and half way through the reception my much younger cousin Sam gently stroked the side of my cheek and said I had the most beautiful complexion he had seen. His sweet compliment was spontaneous and very dear.
This Illuminator and brush are rock stars!! I really liked the inner glow and highlighting effect as well as making my skin look flawless.
There is however a learning curve. Use too much and you do end up looking metallic. Once it's on it's kind of hard to get off. All you need is a very small amount on the brush and a very light stroke on face. I do agree with some other reviews that it can be messy, the reason for the 4 stars.
Jamie, maybe the idea of tinting this product so it's not so "white" would make a good product even better. What do you think?
I tried the IT cosmetic line because my cousin suggested that I try it. (I told her about Bare Minerals and she started using it) I LOVE this stuff I have now switched and I don't think that I will be going back to Bare Minerals!
