The It Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Radiance Illuminator boasts a truly innovative formula with ingredients such as peptides, hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, real silk and anti-oxidants that hydrate, condition, and nourish skin while warding off free-radicals all day long. It gives a healthy, lit-from-within glow, that leaves skin silky, velvety, and supple without settling into lines and wrinkles. As with a lot of It Cosmetics products, the packaging on this is quite classy. A sleek, rounded, smooth and polished-to-a-mirror-finish metal compact houses the creamy beige illuminator and also has a mirror on one side. Scroll on for more photos
The It Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Radiance Illuminator is a creamy beige illuminator that goes on almost silvery on my skin. The overall effect is similar to creamed pearls - not that I have seen creamed version of pearls, but a little imagination helps :D There are no obvious shimmers in the product, more of a pearlescent glow. I used my finger to apply and blend this creamy highlighter, but this can also be used with the It Cosmetics Heavenly Pointed Precision Complexion Brush (or even a fluffy eyeshadow brush). Here's a look at the swatches.
How to Use the It Cosmetics Hello Light! Illuminator: To use lightly brush crème over the areas of your face you wish to appear lifted, add light to, or bring forward, such as the center of your forehead, above your brows, under your eyes, above your cheek bones, or straight down the bridge of your nose. Can also be applied all over for a healthy lit-from-within glow. Use on bare skin or over foundation.
Being an oily-skinned girl blessed with enough pores on my face to back up that claim, a highlighter isn't usually my favorite product. Since the It Cosmetics Illuminator doesn't rely on a high dose of glitter/shimmer for the radiance effect, this is a much friendlier product for my skin tone. I have used it rather generously for the photos, but in real life a much lighter touch would suffice for a lit-from-within glow without looking oily faced. Overall, this is a great highlighter to use for anyone who prefers a more natural glow and/or something without too much shimmer.
