IT Cosmetics, the best friend to the over 40 woman, has a new shade in the CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush line. Sugar Plum joins Je Ne Sais Quoi and Coral and is perfect for that natural flush of color we’re always striving for. You know, like you’ve been picking apples in an orchard with the brisk fall breeze just barely kissing your cheeks. There you are on a ladder with a basket, your warm fall scarf tucked under your neck and your awesome suede boots. The heel of your designer boot gets caught on a rung of the ladder and you start to fall when along comes the handsome farmer and catches you in his strong arms. He takes you back to his quaint farmhouse to tape your ankle and offers you a mug of hot apple cider. Oh yes, this could be the start of something big! What were we talking about? Oh yeah, blush. I digress.

The CC+  Radiance blushes are a stunning gradient of three shades: the lightest a highlighter, the middle a midtone and the last a more pigmented matte. Wear each shade separately or swirl together which I prefer. The result is a glow without glitter or overt sparkle–perfect for us over 40 beauties!

You can see how pigmented each shade is. On my fair skin, I need to use a light hand. You can also see the only shade that is a touch shimmery is the highlighter. Apply this over the top of the blush (just on the apples) to get that radiant glow.

Formulated with skin-loving ingredients including hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, and the optical blurring Drops of Light technology, CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush starts as a rich matte blush then blends up into a soft luminous shade, allowing you to customize your blush for the perfect blend of brightening color.

Here it is blended:

I apply using the fabulous IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe French Blush Brush to swirl across all three shades and lightly dust over the apples of my cheeks. Then I dip the edge of my brush in the highlight side of the blush and apply on the top of the cheekbone.

Bottom Line: this rosy plum ombre blush is so pretty! I love how you can lighten or intensify the amount of color you desire. It adds the perfect amount of luminosity for over 40 skin!
