It Cosmetics CONFIDENCE IN YOUR GLOW Review + Heavenly Skin Brush Review

Y'all, it's already Monday! Scratch that, y'all it's already MAY! This year is flying by! I swear I was just taking down Christmas decorations and making plans for the new year. Now I've got summer on my mind! Okay, I always have the beach on my mind!

Speaking of the beach, in a roundabout way that makes me think of the new compacts from It Cosmetics called CONFIDENCE IN YOUR GLOW. I was sent these and did my first (ever!!!) Instagram live unboxing of them. So many of you wanted to see a review, so that's what I'm doing today!

These are brand new to It Cosmetics. These are a blush, highlight, and bronzer in one step. Get the look of an instant all-over vitality-filled glow, plus a boost of brightening and radiant warmth, in one simple step! 

These have a fresh orange scent as a nod to the powerful vitamin C-infused radiance-boosting and brightening formula. Confidence in Your Glow has high-performance, anti-aging ingredients and talc-free, ultra-luxe pigments. Combined with proprietary Drops of Light Technology™, your skin will feel instantly softer and smoother with a younger, airbrushed appearance. These are .5 oz, are $32 each and come in 3 shades (all discussed below).

They also kindly sent me their newest brush: Heavenly Skin™ One-Sweep Wonder Brush #705.
Heavenly Skin™ hair is infused with anti-aging collagen, silk, peptides, niacin and antioxidants, instantly improving the look of your skin upon application and delivering beautiful results every time.
The unique dual-fiber hairs, tapered brush head and shortened handle allow for effortless application—all in one sweep, for $48. I really liked this brush, but didn't notice really anything yet skin-wise after a week of use. It's a nice brush, but definitely not a must-have for the price.

Now let's check out the palettes--first up is the Natural Glow. It's described as a natural rosy kiss of radiance and natural boost of warmth.

The swatches came out really nice on these and I applied them using the Heavenly Skin brush. I found I really needed to use another brush to blend. The highlight didn't show as well as I'd hoped in pictures. The thing to remember about It Cosmetics, at least on my light-medium skin, is that their products are subtle and not striking.

Then we have the Instant Nude Glow--for the softest, sheerest naturally pretty glow.

And here it is swatched and using the Heavenly Brush:

And finally we have the Instant Warm Glow – your richest shade of bronzer for the deepest color payoff, with a gorgeous peachy-pink flush for your brightening radiance.

 Despite having warm in the title, I felt this was the most natural-looking for me.

Overall, I was very pleased with the look and wear time of the Confidence In Your Glow compacts. They lasted during the recent hotter Atlanta temps and my skin had no bad reactions to them. I liked the option of everything in one compact and even wore products individually. I didn't really care for the brush for my face shape.

Extra Elle:
This weekend I kicked off Cinco de Mayo extra early with some guacamole on the rooftop of a Mexican restaurant. It was nice to be out in the sun--I've been holed up getting caught up with blog stuff, so this was a good change of scenery.


  1. These compacts are so pretty! I love the packaging! The warm glow is flawless on you!

  2. The compact is so pretty. I can see that brush isn't very helpful but I still want to try. Thanks for sharing!


  3. These are very pretty! I like the Natural Glow one, I think it would probably work best for be because it's light. I've heard lots about It cosmetics but have yet to try it out.

  4. These palettes look very nice:) I love that they lasted throughout the hot weather over there.

  5. These are so pretty! I was thinking of picking one up but couldn't decide what color would look best on me. I thought the "warm" one would be too dark for me but maybe not after your review. I love how natural it looked on you.

  6. I love IT Cosmetics! They make some gorgeous makeup! That Instant Warm Glow is by far the most natural and pretty! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  7. The packaging is certainly beautiful as is the brush!

  8. How gorgeous are these compacts?! Love how they're a blush, highlighter, and bronzer all in one, and I need that Instant Warm Glow in my makeup drawer <3

  9. They reminded me of Kevyn Aucoin new Neo highlighters but I don't think I will pick these up.I like my blushers to be more pigmented and that brush sounds really gimmicky.

  10. All of those palettes are so pretty, and I love that it's a highlighter, bronzer, and blush all combined into one!

  11. What beautiful packaging! I am all about the bronzer this time of year, but love that it is also a blush (and highlighter!).


  12. Sitting on a roof eating quac in warmth? That sounds like a piece of heaven to me.

  13. Ooo these are so pretty! I'd love to have one in my collection, but it would be so hard to choose between the 3!

  14. I love everything about these - the packaging & colours. I think IT Cosmetics are launching a UK website later this month so I'll keep my eyes peeled for these! xx


  15. Must try!

  17. i would buy these just for how pretty the packaging is!

  18. Yay for some time outside and guacamole is always a winner in my book! I agree that the warm shade looks the best on you; it's so pretty! Thanks for the review!

  19. These are beautiful palettes and look amazing on! I'm jealous of your early Cinco de Mayo celebration!

  20. They are so prettily packaged!! Love it!

  21. I like Instant Warm Glow the best! It looks so natural :)

  22. I've only tried the Instant Nude Glow and I've really been liking it. I have a hard time with bronzers because I'm so fair, but so far I like this one. I'm going to have to try the dark since it looks so natural on you! I was intimidated by the title. Also, guacamole on the rooftop sounds amazing! Happy Monday!

  24. that blush looks great.
    thanks for sharing about the brush.. that is expensive.

  25. These compacts look gorgeous and I love how they have an Ombre effect so you can blend them until you get the perfect look! I'm already tempted to go to Sephora to see which compact goes well with my skin.

  31. Mmm guac! And on a roof top??? Extra points!

    So I just ordered my first IT product today from the QVC cancer charity sell and I cant wait to try it! It is an eye shadow trio with a brush that looks super awesome. These colors are look so pretty and pigmented and gorgeous. I am sure I will be getting some more IT stuff in the future. I want to try their CC cream.

  32. This palettes are so beautiful! I think they both looked great on you!

  33. These are all so pretty and I love that brush. I just wish It wasn't so dang expensive!

  34. I happen to love those highlight colors, they really are so pretty! I also thought the last one was the most natural for your face--it actually really fits you! This is really reminding me that I hit pan on my highlighter and really need to get a new one...x


  35. These palettes look so pretty and I love the ombre effect between the different sections. I think I would agree with you and the last one would be my favourite as it is the most natural looking one :) x

  36. The palettes are super pretty!! Yes, the Warm Glow looked best on you, I thought..!
