This is a great product for someone who wants a "dewy" complexion, but I like more of a matte finish. Instead of using it all over my face, I apply it to my cheeks.

                        A:

                        Hi there, thank you for your question! Both versions of CC+ Cream have the same full coverage, skin care benefits, and physical only SPF 50+ protection. The difference is in the finish- the original CC+ Cream has a natural satin finish, whereas CC+ Cream Illumination is infused with our Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of subtle radiance for a luminous finish. Both products offers the same amount of hydration and benefits to the skin. We recommend testing both out at your local Ulta to determine which you prefer on your skin! XOXO

You can set it with powder to control shine and give it a matte finish, or leave it as is for a more luminous finish. CC+ Cream Illumination is another great option if you prefer a dewy, naturally radiant finish! XOXO

                        Hi there, thanks for your question! Based on what you are experiencing, we recommend using a primer before applying CC+ Cream Illumination. For this we recommend No. 50 Primer which contains 50 skin loving ingredients to hydrate and nourish the skin as you wear IT. It primes the skin to blur the look of pores smooth skin texture, and provide moisture all day long. You can shop IT through the link below! XOXO

                        Hi there, thanks for your question! IT is not necessary to use a finishing powder however if you want to assure your makeup stays in place or want a matte finish, we do recommend IT. You do not have to use an IT Cosmetics powder, any brand will work! The directions to reapply every 2 hours is in regards to the SPF 50+ component if you are specifically wearing IT for sun protection and will be in the sun for a long period of time. In this case, we recommend skipping powder and reapplying as you normally would sunscreen. Since you are Fair in CC+ Cream Illumination, you will also be Fair in the rest of our products! XOXO

                        Hi there, thank you for your question! If you consider your complexion to be in between Light and Medium, you can either mix the shades or use the Light shade and bronze IT up with bronzer. You could also use the Medium shade and use a lighter concealer to even out your complexion. We hope these suggestions are helpful! XOXO
