Airbrush Silk Anti-Aging Blush Stain is a good, long-lasting blush. It comes in a loose-powder form, which makes application messier than with a pressed-powder blush, and there's no difference between the look you can achieve with this as opposed to with a pressed blush. Nonetheless, it does have a silky texture and applies smoothly.

This blush doesn't highlight pores or dry skin (always a bonus!), and lasts all day without fading. For fair skin tones, only a tiny amount is necessary for a flush of color; a heavier application works best for darker skin tones.

Pros:
  • Blush doesn't highlight large pores or dry skin.
  • Lasts for several hours without fading.
  • Only a little is needed to provide a flush of color on light skin tones.
Cons:
  • Loose-powder formula is messy to apply.
  • No benefit over using a pressed-powder formula.
  • Pricey for what you get.

Brand Overview

Strengths: Excellent color products, standout foundation and concealer options, impressive highlighters.

Weaknesses: Can be on the pricey side; has a few makeup products with exaggerated anti-aging claims.

IT Cosmetics (the IT stands for “Innovative Technology”) is the creation of Jamie Kern Lima, a former Miss USA pageant contestant and TV news anchor. Lima founded IT Cosmetics in 2008, selling her products in boutique stores and on QVC, then expanding into Canada in 2009. Since then, the line has gotten a lot of exposure with featured reports and stories on network television, including prominent mentions on the ABC reality show Dancing With the Stars.

The labels on most IT Cosmetics products reveal a variety of age-defying claims centered around ingredients like antioxidants, peptides, vitamins, and collagen. Those are indeed great additions to any cosmetic product, but unfortunately, the combination of compact or jar packaging among the formulas that include those helpful ingredients isn’t a good thing.

Air exposure compromises ingredients like antioxidants and peptides, rendering them useless. While that doesn’t affect the quality of the makeup, it is worth noting if you were hoping for an anti-aging edge from IT Cosmetics’ antioxidant-boosted blush or powders.

Of course, IT Cosmetics does have products that are absolutely worth checking out. The line boasts an excellent range of color products, highlighters, foundations and many more worth consideration. As with any line that has a mix of standouts and caveats, shopping using our reviews to guide you is a great way to ensure you’ll at least get your money’s worth, and your skin will be the better for it.
