THE BENEFITS OF IT COSMETICS CONFIDENCE IN A COMPACT
Let’s just get right to the point: We’re kind of obsessed with Confidence in a Compact. Here are some reasons why. For starters, the formula is basically an SPF plus moisturizer, serum, and foundation all wrapped into one. What do you even call such a thing? According to IT Cosmetics, Confidence in a Compact is a skin-transforming, full coverage solid super serum. The tinted anti-aging formula—available in seven shades from fair to deep—features a skin care concentrate, color pigments, and broad-spectrum SPF 50+. The solid serum combines a ceramide, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and squalane. This compact can help you achieve the great-looking skin of your dreams! Anyone who knows us well knows that if there’s anything the Skincare.com team loves more than makeup, it’s makeup that boasts skin care benefits! Needless to say, Confidence in a Compact is a product we can fully get behind.
Now that we’ve discussed the formula, let’s talk about the benefits of compacts in general. Similar to most compacts, Confidence in a Compact includes a generous sized mirror to help guide applications on the go. Thanks to its size, it’s also incredibly portable. Throw it into your purse or carry-on for quick and easy touch-ups from virtually anywhere. Typically, I’m wary of carrying my skin care and make up products around in fear of unwanted spillage, but you can rest assured that this compact product will leave behind zero mess and take up very little space!
HOW TO USE IT COSMETICS CONFIDENCE IN A COMPACT
Applying Confidence in a Compact is easy as pie. Swirl your foundation brush or the included sponge, apply the product onto your skin, and blend. Voila—a gorgeous complexion with, weightless coverage. You may even forget you’re wearing anything at all!
WHO SHOULD USE IT COSMETICS CONFIDENCE IN A COMPACT
All skin types can benefit from Confidence in a Compact. Consider this formula if you’re a busy gal that’s on the go, if you are eager to address visible imperfections with your makeup, or if you simply want to add one of the latest and greatest must-haves to your beauty arsenal.
Editor’s tip: A little bit goes a long way! Dab on a little bit of product and build for additional coverage if desired.
PRODUCT REVIEW: IT COSMETICS CONFIDENCE IN A COMPACT
Who knew so much awesomeness could be stored in a tiny, unassuming compact? I’m happy to report that Confidence in a Compact exceeded all of my expectations. Thanks to its lightweight texture, the product felt weightless on my skin save for a flattering tint that helped camouflage some of my problem areas. Since I think the coverage is pretty light, I’d recommend Confidence in a Compact solely for helping to cover minor skin flaws and blemishes. Anything more than that for me may need additional coats of concealer. Not a huge deal considering most gals have concealer handy, anyway. Also, the finish is slightly dewy rather than matte. On days where I’m looking for a healthy-looking glow, I play up the dewiness with subsequent applications of highlighter and other skin-illuminating products.
My favorite part about Confidence in a Compact is that it is formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 50+. The sun’s harmful UV rays account for a number of negative skin side effects, including visible signs of aging. No thank you! I always appreciate a multi-tasking product that can help shield my skin from harmful sun, whether it’s a moisturizer or a solid compact.
My final verdict? Confidence in a Compact gets a full five stars from me. My skin feels hydrated and comfortable after use, not to mention the visible radiance! Thanks to its compact packaging, I can carry it with me and touch up my skin anywhere and everywhere…which is exactly what I plan to do.
Editor’s note: The shades did appear a bit darker in the pan compared to how it translated onto my complexion. The brand recommends the medium shade for light-to-medium skin tones. When in doubt, try on some swatches at your local Ulta.
