I love the glow of this product but by the time I get of of work it has worn off. I also feel like the color options could be better for darker skin tones. As much as like the brand I don't think they make this for ethnic women

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

I had the original finish and decided to try the illuminating one for summertime! I love it! Not glittery, just a nice natural shimmer. If you are super oily it may not be the best finish as it seems to be slightly greasy feeling towards the middle of the day. This is supposed to be all in one product, but I have huge pores so I use a primer underneath and it works great! I love the coverage and blendability! I definitely recommend!

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

    I have such sensitive skin that it's really hard to find a foundation that works. This has been amazing for my skin. I have not had any break outs and my skin actually feels and looks better even without wearing any make up. It feels like your putting lotion on and it blends so easy. It is expensive for what I'm used to buying but it lasted me about 9 months. It's really amazing!

              Love the dispenser on this foundation. It allows just the right amount to apply. The foundation applied smoothly and covered perfectly, I used a blender sponge. It didn't look cakey or even appear visible, it just looked like my own skin only better. I applied a little blush and I noticed even less makeup needed here. This foundation creates the perfect canvas. I love that it has 50spf. This will last a long long time, but I would definitely purchase again.

                      Hi there, thank you 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 SkinFlex 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 has super powerful color correcting pigments. Both are developed to truly give you your most beautiful skin! Bye Bye Foundation is $65 and CC+ Cream in $38. We hope this information is helpful! XOXO

                    What is the difference between the shades medium and medium tan? I am currently using medium, but it seems to be just a hair darker than what I prefer. I swatched the two shades in store, and the medium tan actually looked a tiny bit lighter? Is this true?

The Medium-Tan shade has a slightly deeper tone than the Medium. IT is a great idea to test the shades out in person like you have to determine which is best for your complexion! XOXO

                      Hi there, thank you for reaching out to IT! CC+ Cream Illumination does have primer and moisturizer built into IT, so it is not necessary to apply either before. However depending on your skin and personal preference, you may choose to apply primer or moisturizer first, or even both if you find your skin could use a boost. You can adapt IT to your skin's needs! XOXO

                    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! ��

                    I use NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in the shade Stromboli. Just wondering what shade would match me best. Btw I have more of a yellow undertone. NOT pink.

                    Thanks xo
