Brand Overview

Hello Light™ Anti-Aging Powder Illuminizer is a good highlighting product to use on cheeks, forehead, or the bridge of the nose.

This smooth, illuminating powder gives skin an attractive glow without emphasizing pores or fine lines. The shimmer is subtle enough for daytime wear, but be ware, if you have oily skin any shine will make it look more oily. The only downside is that this product can be a bit messy to apply due to powder being extra-dusty when picked up with a brush. The antioxidants and peptides (anti-aging ingredients) are unlikely to remain stable in a product like this that’s routinely exposed to light and air. This isn’t the shimmer powder to choose if you want more anti-aging ingredients.

Pros:
  • Shimmery powder is subtle and attractive.
  • Texture doesn't emphasize pores or fine lines.
  • Fragrance-free.
Cons:
  • Can be too shiny for daytime wear or for those with oily skin.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

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 isnt a good thing.

Air exposure compromises ingredients like antioxidants and peptides, rendering them useless. While that doesnt 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 youll at least get your moneys worth, and your skin will be the better for it.
