It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eye Shadow Palette

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

You've heard me profess my love for It Cosmetics complexion products for well over a year now right?  They work for me and i absolutely adore the way they make my skin look and feel when I'm wearing them!  However, one thing I had not yet tried was this eye shadow palette which I'd heard so many great things about.  So the other day, while shopping at Ulta, i decided it was time to pick up the Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eye Shadow Palette.  Wow, was i glad that i did!  Listen, it's no secret that i own a plethora of palettes but this one is so fantastic for many reasons! I love that all (except one) of the shades are matte.  Yes, i love shimmer but i find that matte shadows really help conceal aging skin. While I'm not exactly calling myself old by any means, i am also very aware that I'm no longer in my 20's and therefore like reaching for products that keep me looking and feeling youthful!  However, this palette includes one It Cosmetics proprietary pearl transforming shade that can switch up your entire look with a simple swipe!

The 14 luxe anti-aging silk infused eye shadows also include Hydrating Age Reverse and Prevent Complex and are infused with Peptides, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Anti-Oxidants and Drops of Light Technology. Oh and no worries, this beauty is also Paraben-free, fragrance-free, sulfate-free and cruelty-free.  Best part?  These anti-aging shadows were developed with plastic surgeons to instantly diffuse the look of lines and wrinkles on the eyes and lids!  Phew!

I used a mixture of 'noire and midnight' to line my lower lash line for added drama!

I've been playing with this palette for the past couple of weeks and find that the colors are incredibly wearable, fun, and can create a wide array of looks that can range from a simple day time look to a sultry smokey eye situation!  The pigmentation is serious on this palette.  A little goes a long way!  The color pay off is intense and the shadows apply incredibly smoothly!  As with just about every It product I've tried, I'm loving this one and see myself reaching for it often!  I promise, this beauty will NOT disappoint!

Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM
