I recently took advantage of a deal Ipsy had going on where you could purchase the IT Cosmetics "Naturally Pretty" palette for a discounted price. I had always wanted to get my hands on it but hadn't seen many reviews, so, I thought this would be a good opportunity to pick it up and I am just thrilled that I did!
The shadows are incredibly unique in the sense that they aren't super buttery with a lot of fall out like many high end shadows tend to be (Urban Decay for example) yet, they still manage to have intense color pay off and the blendability....well, this formula might be the easiest I have EVER blended on my eyes. All shades are matte/satin except for the largest color called "Transforming Pearl" which is supposed to turn any shade into more of a shimmering/pearl finish.
Needless to say, I've been wearing this ever since I received it. Some of my favorite shades are Midnight, Java, All Heart, Warmth, and Soulful. I haven't had a chance to try all of the colors but like I mentioned, the quality is absolutely THE SHIZ!
I've been using some staple products alongside the palette that I thought I would share as well - mostly peachy neutrals! The palette is a mixture of warm and cool tones so there's really no limit on the type of look you can create.
MAC Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skin Finish - One of the most well known cheek highlights of all time, and for a good reason. The soft beige undertone fits almost any skin type and undertone.
Bobbi Brown "Pastel Peach" Blush - I'm not sure what it is that I love about this blush so much. I'm thinking it's the soft "no blush" appearance. The pastel undertone truly does give a natural flush to the cheeks.
Too Faced Melted Lipstick "Melted Nude" - Let's get one thing straight, no matter how tan I am, this shade is NEVER nude on me. It always turns into a brownish peach shade which I like for certain looks like this one!
For my eye look I used "Soulful" in the crease, followed by "Soft Light" and "Violet". I patted "All Heart" onto my lower lid and used "Java" in my outer corner and lower lash line.
My lashes are the "Heart Breaker" style from House of Lashes - a little more dramatic than my normal Demi's but I wanted to switch things up!
Have you guys tried the IT "Naturally Pretty" Palette? I highly suggest it! Let me know what some of your naturally pretty favorites are :)
