    This product was recommended to me by an Ulta associate. I love how it blends well with my skin and makes me look like I'm not wearing any makeup. I get the coverage I want without the cakeyness of foundation.

            Comments about It Cosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

            Well, I am always looking for a light-weight medium coverage foundation... I started with the regular CC cream by IT Cosmetics and I absolutely love it. So I went out and bought this to see if I like it as much, and so far I love it. I cleanse my face every morning and night, and use toner and a moisturizer. I exfoliate twice a week, sounds like a lot of work, but it helps with your makeup looking amazing. I honestly have amazing skin, so I don't like to cover it up to much, but when I put foundation on even with primer I have an issue with oil, and I have tried so many primers out there. It doesn't cause my makeup to separate or anything, but I am still on the hunt for something that helps. But this looks good from the 5 am when I get up for work to 5 pm when I get off work, though if I were to go out I would need to do some touch ups. I highly recommend this product, but if you are unsure buy the small one to start :-)

                  Comments about It Cosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

                  I am a senior in high school that has combination skin. I also have a rash on my cheeks that causes hyper pigmentation and severe dryness. I had been trying to find a drugstore brand foundation that didn't dry my skin out, and was full-coverage. After going through almost every product, I decided to try a prestige brand. I started with the Benefit Oxygen Foundation and liked it, but it still wasn't covering enough. Then I tried this, and WOW! My skin has never looked or felt better since using this foundation. I've noticed that my nose gets way less oily throughout the day and my cheeks don't feel like chalk at the end of the day. It stays on too! I use a green primer, this foundation, and the powder foundation to set it, and it lasts until I take it off at night. Now, being a student, I am up late doing homework often and sometimes I'm too tired to take my makeup off. I can sleep in this and it doesn't cause breakouts! I don't do this horribly often, but if there's a night were I'm just too tired to take it off, i can sleep with it on without worrying about it. This is a super full coverage foundation too. I expected it to be much thicker for how much it covers. Normally, I couldn't cover the redness in my cheeks without using a green primer, but with this I can if I run out. I usually don't do that but it covers if I dont have any green primer. This also blurs my pores super well. When I was using previous foundations, i had my friend tell me that I needed to change something because my cheeks looked like sandpaper because of the dryness and big pores. But with this foundation, my cheeks look ( and feel ) super smooth. I've noticed that on the weekends when I dont put this foundation on, my skin looks duller, redder, and its more dry and oily. This is honestly the best thing I have found for my difficult skin.

                      This definitely is the regular cc+ IT cream but made 100% worst. It's exactly the same, no difference EXCEPT they threw a bag of glitter bought from the supply store and called it "illuminating"

                          Hi there, thanks for your question! Bye Bye Foundation is all about the 3D SkinFlex technology that makes Bye Bye Foundation different from CC+ Cream, which are both best selling foundations on our website! Both will have similar coverage however Bye Bye Foundation has 3D Skin Flex Technology - it allows the foundation particles to move along with the movement of your skin for the most natural and flawless coverage while delivering multiple skincare benefits! CC+ Cream Illumination has super powerful color correcting pigments and is infused with Drops of Lights Technology to give the skin the look of subtle radiance. Both are developed to truly give you your most beautiful skin! XOXO

                      • Q:

                        This gives amazing coverage, it's a perfect color match, but after an hour it appears cakey on my forehead and at the bridge of my nose. This happened even after an in-store application by a makeup artist at Ulta.

                        I'm using the It Cosmetics blurring foundation brush and have tried with and without moisturizing and with and without applying an Elf primer prior to application. I use Laura Geller's Filter Fix setting powder to finish. I do not have this issue with my normal foundation.

                        Thanks in advance for your help! I really want to love this product.

                          Hi there, thank you for your question! We're sorry to hear you are experiencing this with the wear of your CC+ Cream Illumination. We do suggest using a primer underneath your CC+ Cream as this might be best for wear of it on your skin. We recommend No. 50 Primer to give your CC+ Cream a nice base to adhere to. You can find this product through the link below! XOXO

                        I use the matte it cc foundation in light.
                        I purchased the cc illuminating in the same color light.
                        The illuminating cc foundation in light seems a little lighter on my face.
                        Is there a difference between the two cc foundations in color?
                        Do I need a different color in the illuminating one or do I need to mix it.

                          Hi there, thank you for your question! The shade range for regular CC+ Cream and CC+ Cream Illumination runs the same. Since CC+ Cream Illumination is infused with Drops of Light Technology to give the skin a dewy, luminous finish, you may experience a slightly darker result. If you find you prefer to mix to get your best shade match, you can absolutely do that! XOXO

                        Do you recommend using a primer under the IT CC Ilummination cream? I have dry skin and have used a primer when using other foundations. Thank you

                          Hi there, thank you for your question! You can absolutely use a primer underneath CC+ Cream Illumination based on your preference and your skin. This product does include a pore minimizing primer in IT, however the addition of a primer can help a specific skin concern! XOXO

                      • Q:

                        I'm confused as to why every time I try to read reviews that an you to compare this to "bye bye foundation," the review mysteriously disappears before I can get two sentences in to the answer?

                        I finally had to do a quick screen grab after multiple tries on iPhone (mine) & Android (my husband's), as well as an Apple computer (mine) & a PC (my husband's). NO other reviews disappear like this.

                        As a consumer of ALL of THESE OTHER products, although I purchased those products from a competitor's site only because of these strange, disappearing reviews; & so now I'm just wondering, 'what is the deal with that?' Oh & by the way, I *have* purchased in-store at your location on McKnight rd in Pittsburgh, PA. I just really want to know why that happens.
                        Thanks! You're VERY loyal customer,
                        Natalie.
