I love my pores. They’re a part of who I am and, ya know, they do all the hard work that pores do (like housing hair follicles).
That said, I really don’t need to be reminded of their existence all day long, so I’d much rather wear a line of blushes called “Bye Bye Pores” than “Hi Hi Pores!”
It Cosmetics has some fantastic permanent collection blush lines, including my faves, the Confidence In Your Glow Blushing Bronzers (a.k.a the Neapolitan ice cream ones) and the CC+ Radiance Ombre Blushes, which are SO GREAT. They’re easy to blend, long lasting and look incredibly natural.
Sweet Cheeks is a super sheer peach powder blush bursting with golden glitter. This was my first time using the Bye Bye Pores line, and all I have to say is WOW! This is a blush? Really…? Because it’s almost a highlighter. The glitter bits are big enough to clearly see on my cheeks.
And it’s called Bye Bye Pores. Hmm…
Despite the fact that it blends just as easily and lasts just as long as the other It Cosmetics blushes I’ve worn, I have mixed feelings about it… Thankfully, the glitter doesn’t seem to emphasize my pores, but it doesn’t make ’em say, “Bye, bye!” either. My pores look exactly the same size when I wear it.
I like Bye Bye Pores Blush in Sweet Cheeks, but can’t say I love it — certainly not as much as CC+ Blush in Coral Flush and Je Ne Sais Quoi. But if you have to have ALL ‘ZE GLITTERZ, it’s $24 and available now on the IT Cosmetics website (also coming soon to Ulta stores this fall.
