        The salespeople are pushing this hard for DRY skin, saying it is dewy original is matte. Not so, I bought based on this advice, it is thick and glittery--more of a made up strobing effect. I went back to the store and the man I spoke with said it "is all in your head" so I went home and tried again, terrible. And confusing because he said they are the same formula but one is illuminating and light reflecting...returned to the store a third time in 24hrs and exchanged for original which is not at all matte, it is dewy and fresh but not greasy and without the pinkish glitter that changes the color of the formula and makes it thick and unnatural looking. Just get the original, that is the reason it is so highly recommended. Don't believe the matte vs dewy pitch. It's more like natural/clean vs. pearly glitter. I was hoping to get a chance to review this to save any other person who wants a natural look with great coverage..

                      • 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! ��

                          Hi there, thank you for your question! 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

                          Hi there, thank you for your question! CC+ Cream and CC+ Cream Illumination are made for all skin types. If you do tend to produce shine, we recommend using the original CC+ Cream as IT has a natural demi-matte finish. 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 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
