Happy Friday friends, I am starting a new theme on my blog, where all my Friday posts will be all things beauty related. 🙂 I am full on makeup lover or product junkie, if you will, and I love trying out all new things. When I find something that I really love using, I have to share it. Which brings me to today’s post, it is a review all about the IT Cosmetics CC cream ” your skin but better” foundation. When I went into Ulta the other day I was actually going to try a completely different foundation but ended up leaving with this one. I am someone who likes to look up reviews before I spend my money on anything, so I can have an idea of what I’m getting myself into. This product I actually bought blindly, not knowing anything about it, which I rarely do. I was very surprised how much I ended up liking this. I have used this foundation for almost a month now, so I feel like I can give a real and honest review about this product.
To give you a brief skin history of myself I have very oily/combination + sensitive skin, so the SPF 50 was something I was initially worried about. I was very excited that no breakouts occurred (or allergic reactions I might add) and my skin actually feels better than ever. This is defiantly a product I can see myself repurchasing over and over.
Consistency: It is very creamy feeling but not runny. It blends into the skin really easily and doesn’t look cakey. One pump of this is all you really need. A little goes a long way.
Coverage: It says it’s full coverage but I would say it’s more medium to full. It defiantly covers a lot for a cc cream but if you do have acne or quite a bit of redness, you will have top it up with a little concealer, like I do. One of the best things I like about it, it does what the packaging says, it looks like your skin but better.
Best Way to Apply: In my opinion, the best way to apply is with a damp beauty blender or a dome shaped foundation brush. It goes on smooth and blends out real easily. It’s also very build able if you want even more coverage.
Shades: It comes it 7 different shades, which isn’t a lot, but I did end up finding my perfect match. There is also an illuminating version of this foundation as well. (It is a tad glittery, so watch out)
Smell: This product defiantly has a strong scent. I did not like it at first, but now I actually have grown to like the smell. The only way I could think to describe it, is that it has a twang to it. So smell it first before you buy, just in case you don’t like the smell.
