        This gives a gorgeous dewy finish that will give you a more youthful appearance. I love that there are skin caring ingredients in this. It gives me great coverage and lasts all day. I notice a little red that peeks through on my nose and cheeks, but it gets covered by the time I finish my makeup. I also always set my makeup with powder and setting spray.

              I love the regular, non-illuminating version of the IT Cosmetics CC Cream much better. I loved the finish of the illuminating version - it is truly beautifully brightening - but I felt like it dried my skin out somehow...? The other always seemed to leave my skin so plump and hydrated when I took it off, but this seems to do the opposite for me (I have combination/dry skin). Overall, I wish IT Cosmetics would come out with more of a shade range, since these full coverage CCs are so good and popular! I am very fair, and the shade "fair" is a hair away from being too dark for my skin.

                This foundation needs a better shade range than what they have. Besides that the very fine glitter seems to get stuck on my pores thus highlighting my problem areas more. I suffer from hyperpigmentation and this doesn't seem to hide it at all even though it's "full coverage". On me it went on more medium , hardly buildable. The second layer I applied led to the glitter problem in my pores or dried up acne. I have normal to dry skin and acne prone. It's not the best out there. I wanted something lightweight but with great coverage, and this didn't seem to fit the bill.

                This is like half a shade darker than the non-illuminating version of this (the silver tube).
                It's definitely illuminating— sometimes I don't even use highlighter with this. But the coverage is different from the silver tube. Even after exfoliating it really gets stuck in every imperfection and makes my skin look dry and accentuates fine lines. I mean, I'm going to use it all, but I'm definitely going back to the silver tube next time.

                      Hi there, thanks for your question! Mixing the original CC+ Cream with CC+ Cream Illumination will absolutely mute the illuminating finish, however it will provide the balance you are looking for. You can absolutely do this to get your preferred finish! XOXO

                      Hi there, thanks for your question! Both CC+ Cream Illumination and Celebration Foundation Illumination contain Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of a subtle glow. One does not necessarily contain more "glow" than the other, however since CC+ Cream is more hydrating by nature, you will most likely get more of a luminous finish. XOXO

CC+ Cream and CC+ Cream Illumination have the same full coverage color correcting pigments, skincare and anti-aging benefits, as well as physical only SPF 50+ protection. The difference is in the finish- the original has a demi-matte finish whereas the illumination has Drops of Light Technology to give the skin the look of and inner glow and radiance. XOXO

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

                    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.

                  • Q:

                    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
