Well, the haute couture fashion house and well-loved drugstore brand have finally revealed all 12 shades that will be part of this epic collaboration!

A New Secret Weapon!
Apparently Pink Sugar Cosmetics has been keeping something from us... and boy, is it awesome. The crowd favorite ‘Our Lil Secret’ Concealer is now available in two formulations! The Pro Coverage (the one in the tube) is the more heavy-duty concealer that we love using on blemishes, while the Lightweight Formula (the one with the doe foot applicator) is a thinner, lighter formula that's perfect for covering up dark circles. You can snag your preferred concealer at any of the Pink Sugar counters!
A concealer that cares
Breakouts are never fun. There’s nothing worse than going to bed with clear skin and waking up with a couple of spots that look angry and super red. It often takes a lot of effort (and product!) to conceal those nasties, and even so we can’t help but think about how it would be better for our irritated skin to not be covered with makeup.
Well ladies, there just might be a solution. What if we told you girls about makeup that actually aids in clearing up your skin? It Cosmetics, known for their great formulas and skincare-infused products, has just released a concealer that promises to not only cover your breakouts, but help clear them as well! Their Bye Bye Breakout Concealer ($28) comes in seven shades and is infused with anti-aging peptides and hydrolyzed collagen, plus oil-absorbing zinc oxide, kaolin clay, witch hazel, tea tree, sulfur and a AHA/BHA complex that takes it from just being a cover-up to actually being a treatment solution! Grab your bottle on the It Cosmetics website here.
