Comments about It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

I've been using the original CC cream for some time now. I decided to switch things up and try the illumination since my skin has been looking a little dull through the winter months. Well I regret that decision. The cream looks like it has glitter in it, but that's not the worst part my face looks oily now. Never had this issue before, and now I have breakouts. Needless to say I won't be buying again but considering the price I'll be using it until I'm out. If you like a more natural look with good coverage I'd buy the original.

    Comments about It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

    So I was so pumped to try this foundation. I wanted something lightweight that looked like my own skin, and that it wasn't caked with makeup. I'm a super fair redhead so it was slightly too dark but not enough that it looked bad. Trying it out, I really enjoyed how easy it was to apply. It applied the best for me just using my fingers. A lot of people said that this was glittery but I didn't get that at all. It had a nice glow. The only unfortunate part that made me rate so low was that I ended up having an allergic reaction to it. I'm not sure what was in the formula that my skin reacted to but it wasn't good. Other than the reaction, I loved it. I'm really bummed that my skin reacted so badly.

    Comments about It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

    The color selection SUCKS, but the Fair shade does work for me. What didn't work was the glitter. It had straight up glitter. It looked that I had been playing with craft glitter and touched my entire face. I like glitter in my eyes, but I don't like it ALL OVER my face!

      Comments about It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

      First off, I don't find this glittery. I do find that the medium tan is rather light; it matches my skin...but is somehow...lighter. I'm. It sure how to explain it. I love it at the beginning of the day. I love that it is a physical sunscreen. I do not lovethatevery time I wear it I get yucky painful zits. Every time. I still have one tube and kind of save it for when I will really be out in the direct sun. I try to use it more often and always regret it later. I usually use cover fx foundation with good results but actually like many of it cosmetics' products

          Comments about It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

          This has tons of tiny sparkles/glitters that will make you look REAL bling. My skin tends to get shiny throughout the day so this is not a look that I prefer. My t-zone, especially the forehead, does get pretty shiny even when I set this with a powder. However this does give a very nice coverage but still leaving my skin looking like skin. I like to apply with a flat brush and tap it into the skin with a damp sponge for light to medium natural finish. It also leaves the skin smooth to touch after it sets. The medium shade is a bit too dark for me but can definitely work for summer time.

              I was skeptical, as I don't love all IT cosmetics, but I wanted to give it a try anyway. I have both forms of Celiac Disease, one of which affects the skin, so I'm always looking for high quality, good coverage cosmetics that make me look alive, since look more dead than alive most days. I fell in love the first time I tried it! Goes on smoothly the first time, and has buildable coverage. Looks flawless. I ise only one or one and half pumps, depending on the level of coverage needed that day. At the end of the day, my previous foundation was gone, but this stays on and still looked great! I have found my new go to foundation!

              Too much glitter!

              Comments about It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+:

              I love the original Your Skin But Better CC cream, so I thought I would try this one for a dewy, luminous look. This looks like I poured glitter all over my face. I would avoid this at all costs if you prefer a natural look, this makes you look like you stuck your face in a kindergarten craft box.

                when i first apply the product, it feels and looks nice but minutes later it seems to get patchy and highlights dry spots (ones that i have and ones that i never knew even existed) . i properly do skincare and moisturise beforehand but i was wondering if there was any way to prevent this from happening ? i've set it before and that just emphasised those dry spots but even alone my skin looks awful in those dry areas and nice in other spots. (i also exfoilate pretty regularly and never experienced this type of problem with the original version or any other base product i have )
