I've been giving some love to IT Cosmetics lately. And with good reason. This brand puts out some killer products. Not only do I adore their Celebration Foundation and Celebration Foundation Illumination, but I'm also in love with their Confidence In A Cream. I just recently tried their Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer SPF50+. OMG. This is the best moisturizer that is not a foundation I've ever used!!!!!! I thought this was going to be more like a moisturizer, but no it is so different. It is a moisturizer with a foundation built in. Really the coolest thing I've ever seen.
What this product is: the first ever full-coverage moisturizer. It gives you the power to say "bye bye" to traditional foundation and say hello to the most beautiful skin. I can attest to this. I had been having breakouts on my skin and it covered them right up like they never existed. Developed with plastic surgeons, this innovative problem solver has been designed to help cover and improve the look of skin concerns including redness, pores, dark spots, breakouts, lines and wrinkles, all while protecting the skin with SPF 50+ broad-spectrum physical sunscreen. And that means the sunscreen is mineral in nature! It is titanium dioxide 9% and Zinc Oxide 6.3%. Both of these are the best sunscreens around and mean that anyone who is allergic to chemical sunscreens can wear this. Hooray!
Created with a proprietary 3D Skin Flex™ Technology the hydrating color-infused moisturizer provides smooth flexible pure color pigments that float over lines and wrinkles and feel like noting on your skin, but cover EVERYTHING without creasing or cracking. Ideal for ALL SKIN TYPES, it also features 7 key fermented ingredients to increase the absorption and efficacy of any skincare you use, plus bioluminescence and diamond powder for a subtle radiance without glitter or shimmer. Also, experience clinically tested hydration and smoothing, skin-perfecting full coverage that makes your skin look absolutely younger!
Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer SPF50+ comes in 12 shades:
- Fair for ultra porcelain skin, fairest of fair skin with warm (yellow) undertone (This is my shade)
- Fair Light for fair skin, if you burn easily in the sun, with cool (pink) undertone (new)
- Light for light skin with more warmth (yellow) to your skin
- Light Medium light to medium skin with cool (pink) undertone (new)
- Medium for medium skin with warm (yellow) undertones (this is Jamie’s shade!)
- Neutral Medium for medium skin with neutral undertone (new)
- Neutral Tan for tan skin with neutral undertone (neutral tan)
- Tan for tan skin with warm (yellow) undertone
- Rich for tan to rich skin with warm (yellow) undertone
- Rich Honey for deep skin with warm (yellow) undertone (new)
- Deep for deep skin with neutral undertone
How do you decides your undertone? Look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Do they look more blue? You are cool! Do they look more green? You are warm! Can’t decide? Then you are neutral! For example, I am neutral. I can wear both warm and cool shades equally. It is one of those weird things that once you learn about in makeup makes all the difference in the world.
Here are some photos of me wearing Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer SPF50+:
In all six photos I am wearing wearing Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer SPF50+ as my base. I did not need to use any moisturizer underneath, nor did I need to use any sunscreen or a foundation. This product takes the place of THREE products right there. Gets rid of them. It is truly amazing. I love how wonderfullly it goes on. I use a foundation brush, one that is full like IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Bye Bye Foundation Brush #22 ($48.00).
A brush like this is wonderful for helping to have the product go on smoothly and easily. Use 1 pump. I mean one. This one pump will cover at least half of your face if not more. It has that much coverage. Then you might need a tiny bit more, maybe a half a pump or 1 more pump at the most but seriously, this stuff is so concentrated you do not need more than one pump at the most to start off with. This is a FULL COVERAGE MOISTURIZER/FOUNDATION. It has a lot of pigment to it. I am going to show you a swatch now with my camera on my inner arm and show you what a tiny dot will do.
Here is a swatch of the product on my inner wrist. I used just a small drop of the product.
As you can see, it provides full coverage and dries down quickly. This product is actually fairly close to my wrist which makes it actually close to my facial skin color (which is much different). My inner wrist is very light.
This has quickly become my favorite foundation, sunscreen and daily moisturizer. Well, it is a toss up between this and Celebration Foundation SPF50. I am loving how well this works with my facial skin and how nicely it goes on, how easy it is to use and how easy it is to take off with a facial cloth and generally just how wonderful this product is. I just adore it.
