ILIA Fade into You Soft Focus Finishing Powder and No. 5 Tapered Powder Brush

//product provided for editorial consideration//

It is always a pleasure when I can share with my gentle readers gorgeous products that are also good for us. Such is the case with ILIA Beauty. A company committed to providing beautiful, high performance cosmetics in elegant packaging while also being gentler on the earth, better for our skin and even our health by formulating with more natural ingredients that are up to 85% certified organic.

I received two products to try and share with you, today. Would you like to see?


Sleek, sophisticated, brushed silver tone and frosted is the jar that contains Fade Into You Soft Focus Finishing Powder. I hear all of the "experts" cry to the heavens that people over a certain age should never use powder but this old school girl just doesn't feel that her makeup look is complete without a sheer fluff of silky, lightweight finishing powder. A finishing powder helps lock down the makeup under it and puts that perfected, smooth touch on my look without appearing or feeling dry, cakey or exacerbating fine lines and wrinkles.

ILIA Fade Into You Soft Focus Finishing Powder is a beautiful formula that has been created with all skin types in mind. A base of organic powder is enriched with natural oils, as well as aloe leaf extract and vitamins and minerals that keep my skin looking smooth, perfected and feeling soft and supple.

Zea Mays (Corn) Starch*, Mica, Silica, Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Extract, Zinc Stearate, Passiflora Incarnata (Passionfruit) Steam/Leaf, Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis) Leaf*, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Tocopherol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Powder*, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate. *Certified Organic Ingredients. Ingrédients Certifiés Biologiques.

Sensitive beauties, this powder has a soft, somewhat floral, "pretty-ish" scent. I don't mind it and it doesn't encroach or last long once applied but if you dislike or can't handle fragrance, this powder may not be your cup of tea.

ILIA Fade Into You Soft Focus Finishing Powder is 50% organic and is cruelty free and vegan.


The ILIA No. 5 Finishing Powder Brush is the perfect tool with which to apply my finishing powder. Dark, brushed silver and pale gold tone metal combine to provide a handle that snugs into my hand and feels smooth, weighty and beautifully balanced. The tapered dome shaped synthetic bristles are very soft, providing a dense, yet beautifully flexible brush head that picks up just the right amount of powder to push it into my skin and buff it utterly smooth without disturbing the makeup underneath.

I also like this brush for bronzer, as synthetic bristles don't pick up a lot of powder all at once, so it's perfect for applying a more subtle wash of bronzer to my fair skin. The tapered shape also lends it's self to blush and highlighter application. The ILIA No. 5 Finishing Powder Brush is just an all around lovely face brush. It is a pleasure to use, it cleans up in a flash and it is a welcome, useful addition to my collection.

If you would like to experience these beautiful products and others for your perfect makeup look for yourself, shop ILIA Beauty.

Have you tried this line? What are your favorite products? I am interested in trying their lip productseye shadows and liners and those cool looking illuminators and multi sticks.
