There is no doubt the IT Cosmetics IT Girl™ limited edition palette ($48) is stunning! What beauty junkie or girly girl wouldn’t adore the incredibly gorgeous, crystal encrusted packaging? It glitzy, glamorous and looks like diamonds. The iridescent crystals are actually cone-shaped–the top is a flat faceted crystal, the bottom, a silver cone. The result is magnificent; it glitters and shines and catches the light like a prism!  If only I had a clutch bag like this, wouldn’t that be awesome for the holidays?

The palette also has a full-size mirror. There are four cool toned shadows on the left side, a pink ombre blush in the center and four warm shadows on the right side. The eyeshadows are a mix of matte and shimmer with a larger base (IT calls them eyeshadow foundation) shade that coordinates with each side.

Like all IT Cosmetics products, the IT Girl palette was developed with plastic surgeons and is infused with anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, silk and antioxidants. While the talc-free, lid-loving eyeshadows effortlessly glide on to make your eyes come alive, the game-changing blush blurs the look of pores and gives a youthful flush of color for your most beautiful you! 

Left Side:

  • Beautiful: Cream Neutral Base / Highlighting Color
  • Glitz: Pearl Gold
  • Lovely: Matte Cool Fawn Brown
  • Stunning: Pearl Bronze
  • Divine: Deep Matte Chocolate Brown

IT describes their shimmery shades as ‘pearl’ which is pretty accurate. The finish does not contain glitter or shimmer, just a pretty sheen that makes eyes really glow. Lovely makes a great crease or transition shade, both Glitz and Stunning are beautiful. Stunning is one of my favorite shades in the palette. Beautiful makes a great brow bone or base shade. Divine can be a good shade to define the outer V or as liner.

IT Girl is an ombre blush that goes from an icy pink for highlighting to a deep pink for blush. It is extremely pigmented, so use a light hand! I like that you can use three separate shades or blend together. I like to blend it together and place on apples of the cheeks and then dip into the lightest shade with a fan brush to highlight the tops of my cheekbones. This blush imparts such a pretty, natural flush it’s quickly become my favorite!

My only issue with this palette is that all the shadows and the blush are VERY powdery. This is how the blush looked after I dipped lightly into it once with a duo fiber (stippling) brush. If you don’t like making a mess or powdery shadows annoy you, you’ll want to skip this palette. For me, the colors, the finish and the quality of the palette outweigh the powder issue. And…although there is kick up in the pan, there is no fallout on the eye which is great!

Right Side:

  • IT Girl: Brightening Base / Highlighting Color-Matte flesh pink
  • Charming: Pearl Pink Champagne
  • Darling: Matte Nude Pink
  • Dazzle: Pearl Rose
  • Brilliant: Matte Browned Rose

For this eye look, I used the right side of the palette. I used Darling, a pale peach satin for my transition shade, then darkened the outer corner and crease with Brillant. I placed Charming all over the lid, used Divine from the left side of the palette for lining and placed a bit of Charming under the lower lash line. IT Superhero mascara and the blush IT Girl from this palette.

The eyeshadows are super soft–lots of kick up, but they blend well. do not crease and are long-lasting. None of the shades are super unique, however, they really lend themselves to a polished and sophisticated look and are universally flattering for all skin tones. There are enough transition shades and deeper colors so that you can do everyday looks or go more dramatic.

The palette retails for $48 ($85 value) but I got it at the IT Cosmetics Friends and Family Sale for 30% off woohoo! Truthfully, I don’t know that I would have purchased it at full price just because there is a limited shade range. It is sold at Ulta and you can use points there or I would watch for a sale. That said, it IS limited edition so it won’t be around forever. Not much help am I?

Bottom Line: if you don’t mind powdery shadows and some kick up in the pan, the IT Cosmetics IT Girl™ limited edition palette is very high quality and extremely wearable. The shimmer shades are perfect for over 40 gals and pretty, polished looks. In addition, if you want a quick, no-brainer look the palette is set up perfectly!
