There’s a good reason why L’Oreal just bought the company for a cool US$1.2 billion

At the recent Sephora Press Day, I was introduced to US brand It Cosmetics. The products presented looked simple enough to me – foundation, concealer, mascara, etc – nothing spectacular or ground-breaking if you consider the amount of beauty products that land on our desks on a daily basis.
That was, till I watched a video of co-founder and CEO Jamie Marie Kern putting on her best-selling Bye Bye Foundation. You see, the former journalist suffers from rosacea, hyperpigmentation and in her own words, “problematic skin”. She spent a long time trying to find the right foundation or concealer for her skin, only to end up creating the best one for herself.
Last week, It Cosmetics was sold for a cool US$1.2 billion dollars to L’Oreal. Having personally tried some of the products myself, it’s not hard to see why – the range is pretty awesome!
Here are the top 7 things to look out for:
1. Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ ($50)
Lightweight with a nice finish, this covers up any scars or blemishes beautifully. Plus, it’s infused with skincare ingredients like collagen, peptides, vitamins and antioxidants.
