Whenever I’m rushing out the door for work or attempting to pack lightly for a trip, I always turn to my multi-use, face palettes to consolidate the makeup application process! Reaching for a single palette in the morning helps me complete my every day makeup routine faster, so I’m always in the market for a good one! I recently came across the It Cosmetics “Je Ne Sais Quoi” face palette at Ulta and was instantly intrigued! First of all, it seemed to be worth the money since it only cost $42 and was valued at $80 worth of product. It Cosmetics is a prestigious brand with a reputation for being formulated with great skincare ingredients since the brand was developed with the help of plastic surgeons, so it’s hard to pass up whenever I can find it at an “on sale” price! Secondly, this has a face powder, bronzer, blush and highlight! That’s everything you need to finish off your face (and eyes) efficiently!
Starting in the top left corner, we have the new “Bye Bye Pores Blush.” This product is supposed to add color to the face, without settling into fine lines or emphasizing unsightly pores. It’s a very fresh, matte pink color that instantly awakens the look of your skin and provides a healthy dose of color to your face. I love how long-wearing this product is as well! I noticed the color was still vibrant and opaque 12 hours after applying!
To the right of the blush, is the translucent face powder, which happens to be their best selling and award-winning, “Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder.” I’ve never gotten the chance to try this product before this palette, but I had a “where have you been all my life” moment after applying! It’s so silky and definitely not chalky or drying, which are characteristics of many translucent powders! This is awesome for setting the under eye area after applying concealer, or using as an all over setting powder after liquid foundation! Either way, this powder seriously fills in any pores and will glide over any dry skin or textured areas on the face!
Beneath the blush is the new “Sunshine in a Compact Matte Bronzer!” This product is meant to warm up your face and provide a subtle, bronzed glow to your entire complexion. This particular shade is a little light for my medium skin tone, but I think it would be perfect for anyone with a fair-to-light complexion! I will say this was a slight disappointment to me because it’s really not my kind of bronzer, but it is useable to blend out a contour or to quickly swipe on my eyes for some subtle definition. It is a very long lasting formula and blends beautifully on the skin, it’s just a really light color that you have to take time building up!
Lastly, the new “Perfect Lighting Luminizer” is in the bottom right corner of the palette and is definitely my favorite thing about this! It’s such a beautiful, champagne-gold glow that lasts for such a long time! It’s very shiny, but subtle since it doesn’t have any glitter! This instantly makes your face look hydrated and glowy, which I love for the Winter months! I can see this working on so many skin tones, so I was very happy that this specific shade was chosen for the palette!
I do think this product is worth the money and I would totally recommend it to friends and family! I think this is great if you’re interested in all-in-one palette that delivers on it’s claim to perfect the look of your skin and give a gorgeous glow! After using all of these products together, I can totally see the cohesiveness of selecting these shades for the palette. Each one blends seamlessly into the next; giving a soft, yet sculpted appearance to your face. You can totally use the bronzer and highlight shades as eyeshadows and shorten your makeup routine even more! I think this is great for travel and would make an awesome gift for a minimal makeup girl that wants all of her products in one compact! It Cosmetics is an awesome brand, so it’s a relief that their formula isn’t changed even though they’re in a palette form!
