Airbrush Silk HD Anti-Aging Illuminizer is a transparent loose-powder illuminator that easily blends over skin or makeup to soften the appearance of fine lines, and can be used as an alternative—or in addition to—finishing powder. The semi-matte finish has a subtle sheen that may not appeal to those with very oily skin, but it will work well for all other skin types.

The only significant drawback to this fragrance-free illuminating powder is the loose-powder formulation, which is messy to apply. Plus, over time, the powder builds up in the cap and spills out whenever the jar is opened. Overall, this is a good product, but there are less expensive and less messy powder illuminators available on our list of Best Face & Body Illuminating/Shimmer Products.

Pros:
  • Silky powder easily blends over bare skin or makeup.
  • Softens the appearance of fine lines.
  • Fragrance-free.
Cons:
  • Loose powder in jar packaging can get needlessly messy.
  • Overpriced given there are far less expensive options that perform as well or better.

Brand Overview

Strengths: Excellent color products, standout foundation and concealer options, impressive highlighters.

Weaknesses: Can be on the pricey side; has a few makeup products with exaggerated anti-aging claims.

IT Cosmetics (the IT stands for “Innovative Technology”) is the creation of Jamie Kern Lima, a former Miss USA pageant contestant and TV news anchor. Lima founded IT Cosmetics in 2008, selling her products in boutique stores and on QVC, then expanding into Canada in 2009. Since then, the line has gotten a lot of exposure with featured reports and stories on network television, including prominent mentions on the ABC reality show Dancing With the Stars.

The labels on most IT Cosmetics products reveal a variety of age-defying claims centered around ingredients like antioxidants, peptides, vitamins, and collagen. Those are indeed great additions to any cosmetic product, but unfortunately, the combination of compact or jar packaging among the formulas that include those helpful ingredients isn’t a good thing.

Air exposure compromises ingredients like antioxidants and peptides, rendering them useless. While that doesn’t affect the quality of the makeup, it is worth noting if you were hoping for an anti-aging edge from IT Cosmetics’ antioxidant-boosted blush or powders.

Of course, IT Cosmetics does have products that are absolutely worth checking out. The line boasts an excellent range of color products, highlighters, foundations and many more worth consideration. As with any line that has a mix of standouts and caveats, shopping using our reviews to guide you is a great way to ensure you’ll at least get your money’s worth, and your skin will be the better for it.
