Review: It Cosmetics Vitality Glow Anti-Aging Matte Bronzer and The Heavenly Luxe Mega Fan Brush
As most of you know I am a huge It Cosmetics fan and I have done several reviews, which will more than likely be linked beneath this post. Last weekend I was watching QVC and I saw this awesome brush that was being sold with a bronzer (Vitality Glow Anti-Aging Matte Bronzer and The Heavenly Luxe Mega Fan Brush). I absolutely love bronzer, but lately I have had some trouble getting it to look right because I am more fair than I have been in years. Knowing I love their brushes I went ahead and took a flying leap and ordered the duo, and I am not regretting it! ;)
"What is it: An antiaging matte bronzer that delivers a face-perfecting vitality glow and airbrush effect. It gives warmth and radiance to your skin without settling into lines and wrinkles. It's also infused with antiaging technology and skin care treatment for younger-looking skin. The Heavenly Luxe Mega Fan Brush is the perfect tool for flawless, luxurious bronzer application to both face and body.
Who is it for: Anyone who wants a natural, airbrushed glow with antiaging benefits; and anyone who wants to instantly reduce the look of pores and imperfections, diffuse the look of lines and wrinkles on the face, and achieve a more radiant-looking, flawless, warmth- and vitality-filled complexion. Also for anyone who wants the perfect tool to give their bronzer an airbrushed look and needs "brush therapy"--courtesy of the ultra-soft Heavenly Luxe Mega Fan Brush--to smile!
Why is it different: Developed with leading plastic surgeons and using antiaging ingredients, this silky matte bronzer helps treat skin with antiaging benefits and gives a more youthful-looking radiance while reducing the appearance of imperfections. The universal matte shade gives that perfect hint of added vitality glow on all skin tones and types.
How do I use it: Apply as a final step in your makeup routine. Use the Heavenly Luxe Mega Fan Brush to apply bronzer all over your skin, wherever you desire a flawless, airbrushed finish. Can be worn on both the face and body."
The bronzer has the It Cosmetics logo embossed into the product. This bronzer is also talc free, so it is not going to cling into fine lines and wrinkles or exaggerate any imperfections. It is formulated with hydrolyzed collagen, peptides & Drops of Light technology, which is trademarked by the brand. It also packs in vitamins a, c, e, grapeseed, green tea, hyaluronic filling spheres, silk, and aloe. WOW! That list of ingredients really makes my jaw drop--you can see why they boast about the anti-aging properties.
ANOTHER thing that is amazing about the bronzer is that it is matte. SOOOO many bronzers on the market are slightly shimmery and what I do with bronzers usually is lightly contour to give my round/oval face some structure and shimmery bronzers don't do me any favors. It draws light to where I want to give shadow so MATTE IS NECESSARY! Also you can totally erase double chins! YAY!!
The color of this bronzer doesn't have orange tones in it... it is a sun-kissed bronze shade. It seems that so many bronzers have slight orange tones to them, which is probably why all the ones in my arsenal aren't working for me right now. I am quite fair and color os showing on me true to life, so aren't just isn't cutting it. I can say that this bronzer is looking gorgeous on my pale skin and I know of people that have darker skin than I and it works PERFECTLY for them as well.
I also wanted to mention that this bronzer is a huge disk! It is bigger than my hand and weighs in at .57 oz (which is huge). When I get a lot of product I don't mind using a little extra for unusual things, and the funnest unusual thing that I have done with this bronzer is actually put it on my body. I wore a short dress the other day because it was nice and warm out but my legs are ghostly white. I used the amazing brush that is in the next picture and basically painted it on my legs for a touch of warmth. It was awesome... It is all of the effects with none of the commitment of a self tanner.
Onto the brush: The Heavenly Luxe Mega Fan Brush is dense, incredibly soft, and luxurious doesn't even begin to explain it. It is a brush that is large enough to be used on the body but when just using the tip if the brush can be thin enough to use for contour. The hair count in this brush is 160,000!!! That is sort of unbelievable right? They spared no expense with this brush!
I chose to purchase the Vitality Glow Anti-Aging Matte Bronzer and The Heavenly Luxe Mega Fan Brush because I just knew the brush was going to be fantastic, but as it turns out I adore both items. The brush's suggested retail price is $48 but you can get this set right now on QVC for $35.92. WHAT AN AMAZING VALUE! I am astonished at the price, which is exactly why I purchased mine in the first place. It cosmetics has the most amazing cosmetics and they also offer the BEST deals in beauty.
