Review Overview

This cream-to-powder tinted color corrector blends easily, and works very well as a redness reducing foundation primer. The light cream color of Bye Bye Redness is neutral enough to work for light to medium skin tones, either all over the face or as a spot concealer.

It's a shame this product is jar-packaged because the formula includes several skin beneficial ingredients that could help soothe, and condition skin if those ingredients were kept in stable packaging. Unfortunately, every time the jar is opened the antioxidants are exposed to air and they begin to deteriorate, making them less effective with each use. There are other tinted color correctors, like those from Olay, available at the drugstore that offer more for your money—including stable packaging and a greater amount of product.

  • Easy to blend cream-to-powder
  • Neutral light cream color works for light to medium skin tones
  • Jar-packaging
  • Over priced

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.

Comes up short for me

I wish I would have read Paula's overview before I bought this! I agree that this works well as a foundation PRIMER. It Cosmetics touts this product as a one-stop shop for folks with severe redness. Well, it's not. I'm an Irish redhead and have a very ruddy complexion. It is most severe on my jawline and I have dry flaky skin under my eye brow hairs. This did not buff away the redness much and I still had to use a green concealer! On the positive, it does look lovely under my fave base.

One color??? What were they thinking. If you are very yellow and in the NC25-30 range this might work for you. It is very drying - kind of a liquid to powder sort of feel to it. Just didn't like anything about this.

great base

a little goes a long way. blending with brush is a must. amazing that one color works for my fair skin. creates perfect base for foundation by eliminating all redness. i am 60 and this seems to fill in crevices. i am on 3rd jar. i agree that a tube would be better packaging. at least it is a glass jar.
