If you follow my blog you already know I am in my early 40’s and I have been on a mission to halt all signs of aging from marching across my face. The entire point of this post started getting lost in my drug history so if you are interested you can follow this thought to here.
So the CC+ cream seems pretty easy to match. It comes in 5 color choices, Fair, Light, Medium, Tan and Rich. The color I have is Light. I was a little worried at first because I have been self tanning but it really seems to work regardless of my use of a self tanner. You get 1.08 fl. oz. in a tube with a pump on it, I love this type of product with a pump, it just makes things less messy. I have had mine since the middle of May so I have been using it fairly frequently for 6 weeks and I still have maybe 1/4th of the product left. It takes about 2 pumps if I cover my entire face with it, 1 if I just use it in the areas of uneven tone or I mix an illuminating BB cream with it like the one from Gerard (Whitening Lightning). I pump it unto the back of my hand then use the Makeup Geek Foundation Stippling brush to apply it then I use my Real Techniques makeup sponge to finish it off. I find that I just need one coat to cover any imperfections as well as to even out uneven skin tone, it really doesn’t take a lot of this stuff. Keep in mind I always moisturize and I only use a primer in the places I need it like my T zone.
As you can probably already tell I really love this product. The pros for me are 1. Full coverage 2. Easy color matching and blends well whether I am self-tanning or not 3. Feels light on my skin 4. It’s good for your skin, especially aging skin like mine. Cons 1. It cost $38.00 This is really the only negative for me. If you order any of the It Cosmetics from QVC you may receive a sample size of this product, I did when I ordered the New Year New You collection. I would suggest trying it from there or Ulta, somewhere that has a really great return policy. I always like to try any foundation type product before I drop that much on it and sampling is the way to go. Unfortunately Sephora doesn’t carry It Cosmetics and Ulta doesn’t give out samples, not my location anyway. I was very happy with mine and I hope if you give it a go you are too.
As always thank you so much for reading my blog and look for part 2 of my daily holy grail products. I will finish up with all the color, eyes, cheeks and lips. I am also giving the Sephora 10 hour liquid foundation a go. Today is the first day I have worn it and so far so good.
Much Love and God Bless,
