I’m very picky when it comes to foundation. In fact I only have a handful in my tool box. I’m always excited to try a new foundation, but the chances of me loving it or even liking it are usually pretty slim. Sometimes it’s a love at first try. Others it takes a little getting used to. Remember that Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation? I loved it! But it didn’t agree with my skin. I ended up giving it another try and paired it with a different primer and didn’t experience any irritation afterward! If it’s something I really like you better believe I’ll keep trying. But it doesn’t always end on a positive note.

It Cosmetics products have never caused me any irritation. So I was pretty excited to dig into their new Confidence in a Compact. Have you heard about this? It’s their new full coverage solid serum foundation. This solid serum foundation contains anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, scalene, antioxidants, and a super ceramide cream that is said to transform your complexion. And it’s SPF 50+. It also claims to be suitable for even the most sensitive skin. I can tell you right now that this is true. At least for me. I can’t say much about the anti-aging claims because I’ve only just started using the foundation. But so far I’m very impressed.

To apply they suggest swirling your brush or the included sponge into the compact. I actually used my fingers and dabbed a bit all over my face. Then I blended it out with the It Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin Smoothing Complexion Brush #704. I’ve also tried blending it out with my BeautyBlender with some really nice results. However, the BeautyBlender does kind of water it down a bit. The brush definitely supplies a nice full coverage look. They say a little goes a long way and it really does. So keep that in mind.

Overall, the application was very easy. To me it doesn’t feel like most full coverage foundations I’ve tried. I usually stay away from full coverage because I find them to be too heavy for me. The Confidence in a Compact didn’t feel heavy at all! It was surprisingly lightweight. I had to build up a bit over my problem areas. Actually you can still see a bit of redness poking through because I didn’t want to build up too much. A color corrector would have fixed that, but I wanted to show off the foundation on its own. But for the most part I think it evened everything out rather nicely.

I’m just going to go ahead and say that I love this foundation! I think the only negative thing I can say is that I don’t like having to dip my finger (or brush) into the compact. But I do love the compact itself. It’s simple, but really pretty. It’s nice and sturdy too.

You can see the Confidence in a Compact in action below. I’m wearing the shade Light along with a primer and setting powder. I didn’t use a color corrector or concealer. I also used the Tan shade to lightly contour.

  2. You are so lucky to get IT Cosmetics newest launches to try, Lisa! I wish they are sold on Sephora but I believe it’s only through the Shopping Channel in Canada or their website.

  3. This looks and sounds incredible! The shade fair actually looks good! Most brands aren’t great with paler skin tones.

    • My eye area as well as my cheeks are super sensitive. I know the struggle. :( I’m always so happy when a product doesn’t irritate me. It’s like my own little lottery win lol.

  6. Oh yes, the formula does look great! I wish we had It Cosmetics here, but alas…
