IT Cosmetics has the solution for pores! Bye Bye Pores Illumination and Bye Bye Pores Blush

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Illumination and Bye Bye Pores Blush

Let’s get real – large pores are no fun. I’m always looking for ways to make them disappear from my t-zone. There are lots of products that seem to be that miracle product, but ten minutes later there are those pores again, seemingly bigger than ever. IT Cosmetics is making me a very happy girl these days, however – actually a very happy girl with very smaller looking pores – thanks to Bye Bye Pores Illumination and Bye Bye Pores Blush.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Illumination

Bye Bye Pores Illumination ($29) is the new IT Cosmetics Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder. It sets makeup, takes away shine and oiliness, and illuminates skin without any shimmer or glitter. It also makes pores look nonexistent! At first I thought this was just an illuminating powder and it does do a great job in that department. But it’s so much more.

This pressed powder blurs pores and imperfections, giving a wonderful airbrushed appearance that lasts and lasts. I think the translucent shade will work for all but the darkest skin shades, and the illumination is really beautiful, giving a fabulous glow that is always appreciated. This is one terrific product that everyone needs. Nicely done IT Cosmetics!!

The other pore problem solver is the Bye Bye Pores Blush ($24). I don’t think this one is going to have as many fans as the Bye Bye Pores Illumination. So let’s talk pros and cons. The pros:  yup, it does make pores disappear. Some blushes seem to settle right into pores and make them look like huge craters – ugh, you know what I mean. This pressed powder does the opposite, leaving skin looking practically poreless thanks to Optical Blurring Technology and anti-aging silk, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants and peptides. The shade I have, Sweet Cheeks, is a very pretty peachy/gold/pink. So the cons – that shimmer. Just too much shimmer for my middle-aged cheeks. This would be a perfect blush if weren’t for that shimmer!! I think that younger women will love this, but anyone older than 35 will have a tough time, at least with this shade. I am not sure what Je ne Sais Quoi and Naturally Pretty have to offer, but check them out in person. If they are as pretty as their swatches and they are shimmer free, they are probably total home runs.

  1. Always been a fan of IT Cosmetics – I don’t really have large pores but this sounds like a great product for those who do! Also the blush looks so pretty in the pan!

  2. Although I don’t have large pores, the shade of the blush is so gorgeous I want it!

  3. Since your pores just keep getting larger as time goes on, these products are a great idea.

  4. I want both of these! I hate my large pores too.

  5. What a beautiful blush!

  6. I want that blush!

  7. I really need to give these a try!!! I avoid a lot of blush because they tend to bring out my pores, not hide them.

  8. The blush looks lovely! I will check when I go to Sephora this week

    The IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Blush in Sweet Cheeks looks nice,.. yes the shimmer looks somewhat, but i love shimmers in my blush,..

    That blush is a gorgeous color. I could probably use a pore minimizer.
