            If you are looking for something to accentuate pores & fine lines- this is your product. This literally sat in my pores and made a home in my fine lines. It's very hard to apply (tried Chanel's foundation brush, Tarte's Foundation brush and the beauty blender) all resulting in a blotchy, greasy sparkly mess. Are the rave reviews on this product paid reviews?? I can't understand how this product can work for anyone...

                I have vitiligo. I tried other foundations that helped to "hide" the spots on my face. I have tried a lot of items. This is amazing! I have no regrets on buying this. I love this product. It goes on smooth and I can't even tell it is on my face.

                  I like to spot conceal on blemishes and under the eyes first and then I add a light layer of the cc+ cream to leave a natural yet completely flawless finish. It leaves a nice dewy finish which helps make it look more skin like.

                  This is great at evening tone and a nice natural feel... you do have to reapply and it does not stay on as long as I would like. But I have been using it in conjunction with my Lancome so it helps.

                    • Q:

                      Hi! I am very fair with neutral undertones. I've tanned a little (for me) and am just a shade darker than Josie Maran Vibrancy foundation in RG5/Dynamic right now. Is the fair shade of It Cosmetics CC Cream Illumination going to be a close match to me, or will it probably be too dark? Also, does it work well with dry skin, or should I use a different IT cosmetics foundation? Thank you so much! ��

CC+ Cream and CC+ Cream Illumination contain the same full coverage, skincare and anti-aging benefits, and physical only SPF 50+ protection. The difference is in the finish- the original has a natural demi-matte finish whereas the illumination is infused with our Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of subtle radiance.

                        Hi there, thank you for your question! CC+ Cream Illumination is a great product to color correct redness and discoloration. If your concern is with acne scarring, we recommend using Bye Bye Redness. IT helps to conceal more than just redness, including skin concerns such as rosacea, broken capillaries, blemishes, skin irritations, sun damage, scars, age spots and more. A little goes a very long way, so a pin drop is all you will need. We recommend applying your foundation over top to even out your complexion! XOXO

CC+ Cream Illumination is infused with our Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of subtle radiance for an inner glow. If you produce shine, this may be too radiant as you wear IT. You can sample both of these products in store at your local Ulta! XOXO

                      Hi, I'd like to know what the difference between this product and "Your skin but better CC cream". They appear almost identical? thanks!

                        Hi there, thank you for your question! CC+ Cream and CC+ Cream Illumination have the same full coverage, skincare and anti-aging benefits, and physical only SPF 50+ protection. The difference is in the finish- the original CC+ Cream has a natural demi-matte finish, whereas CC+ Cream Illumination is infused with Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of subtle radiance for an inner glow. We hope IT is helpful! XOXO

                        Hi there, thank you for your question! CC+ Cream Illumination is extremely long wearing and holds up to hot temperatures and sweat. We do recommend setting IT with powder to prolong the wear of IT! XOXO
