It Cosmetics Vitality Cheek Flush Powder Blush Stain - Matte Sweet Apple

I must confess, I wasn't very familiar with the It Cosmetics brand (except for reviews by the Muse), but I recently was sent a couple of their products to try out, and so far I have loved most of what I have tried.  The product I am reviewing today is definitely one of my favorites both in terms of product quality and packaging.  The It Cosmetics Vitality Cheek Flush Powder Blush Stain claims to be a brightening, hydrating, anti-aging blush stain - all that, in a powder!  The shade I got to try out is a matte version - Matte Sweet Apple.  More on the shade in a bit, but first, a tiny rave about the packaging.  The round blush pan comes housed in a rubberized black compact with a mirror one side.  It's sleek and it's beautiful!  Scroll on for more photos.

The It Cosmetics Cheek Vitality Flush Powder Blush Stain in Matte Sweet Apple is a pink with a hint of coral to it that gives it just a teeny bit of warmth.  This is a matte finish, but because it is very pigmented, this doesn't feel in the slightest bit dusty or chalky or flat.  The color shows up quite easily on my darker skin tone, and it does hold on to the skin pretty well - almost like a stain :)

It Cosmetics Cheek Vitality Flush - Matte Sweet Apple Powder Blush - Swatches and FOTD

As I mentioned earlier, Sweet Apple is a matte pink blush with a hint of coral to it.  It is quite a pigmented blush, and I find it best to start light with this color and build up and blend more as required.  The formula is reasonably easy to blend (given how pigmented it is), and it feels quite smooth and nondrying on the skin.  The staying power is quite good too - stayed on pretty much the whole day - and in the short time that I have used it, I haven't had any breakouts with it.  Here's a look at the blush - swatches and how it looks on me.

Overall, this is a beautiful matte blush that would fit perfectly any time of the year, but is definitely an ideal spring color.  The color does take a bit of practice to get just right, at least for me, but I think it's a shade that would look lovely on any skin tone.  I cannot vouch for the antiaging, skin-hydrating claims of this product since I really do not use any makeup long enough on my skin to know about these results, but the powder does feel quite smooth on the skin

    1. I didn't know anything about this brand either - apart from what I read on the Muse - but I googled, and this seems to get quite positive reviews with the QVC crowd..

      I hope Burberry launches in India too some time - most luxury brands seem to love the place, and Burberry does have their regular stores anyway! I know you can always get it from US or UK, but somehow it's always fun to see makeup at counters, isn't it?
