        My niece told me about this brand. I have used Mary Kay & Bare Minerals and have loved both brands but loved the idea that this had SPF 50+ sunscreen in it. I tried it and absolutely in love with this brand and have began only using this brand. Bought and use the brush to apply and LOVE the way it goes on and how my skin looks and feels while I am wearing it. Don't need a lot of it which is good since it is on the pricey side. It helps to hide flaws instead of enhancing them. I am 53 and love it.

            I love the simplicity of using a CC cream but wanted more coverage. This is a great option for me since I get dressed super early to go to work and it looks great. You just have to be careful because it can move around and break up on the face. I have to use a powder with it. Maybe I am using too much but I want full coverage without having to use a traditional foundation. I deal with it because of the SPF!
            Also- it kind of smells like fruity pebbles- anyone else think this?

              • 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

              • 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,
