BB Cream -It Cosmetics -CC+ Cream Illumination SPF50+

I have light golden beige skin, cystic acne, and very oily skin. I bought the medium shade. This has no yellow undertone. I can play it off for a few hours if I’m very tanned, but... as others have mentioned - this turns into a horrible Florida orange tan. This product cannot hold up to oily skin. I end up looking like a vinyl mask as the oil erupts through the mask. It’s repulsive. This product looks good from very far away but not within three feet. It’s a zero to me.

BB Cream -It Cosmetics -Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

I so wanted to love this CC cream, just like the majority of reviewers, but alas, sadly I just can't. And I am also quite relieved to see numerous reviewers in my age group having the same issues, but let's start with the positives:

Pros:
- SPF50
- Genius packaging, a tube combined with a pump dispenser, fantastic!
- Reasonably priced
- A few of the shades are offered in a smaller version travel tube
Cons:
- Shade range very limited, couldn't find a match for my N/NW15 skin, even the lightest shade "fair" was too yellowish.
- Very thick, matte finish even when I apply a thin layer
- Accentuated pores, fine lines and dry areas on my dry/normal facial skin.

Verdict: Apart from the nice high sun protection and awesome packaging I couldn't agree more with one previous reviewer, who likened the finish of the IT Cosmetics CC Cream to stage makeup. It made my skin - which by itself looks very decent - look matte, with lines and pores exaggerated, not a good look at all! The reason I tried this in the first place is because I am desperate to find a replacement for my beloved Bobbi Brown CC Cream SPF 35 in Blushed Nude - I have used it as long as they made it and then stocked up when Estee Lauder Inc. discontinued it. In the meantime I used up my last backup tubes also. The Bobbi Brown CC Cream had the most wonderful, natural finish and the color correcting properties, natural sheer coverage and overall wear were perfect for me. So my search continues and I will probably try Chanel's CC cream next. ...but IT Cosmetics' CC Cream unfortunately wasn't it for me.

Concealers -It Cosmetics -Bye Bye Under Eye

This will cover your dark circles. Very full coverage. Probably once of the best full coverage concealers out there. However, it’s a little difficult to blend with a sponge. It has a really thick consistency obviously because it’s full coverage. BUT if you use a brush to blend it blends easily and the finish is amazing compared to a sponge. It’s one of those products that works better with a brush. One of my favorite concealers.

I received a sample in my ipsy bag and was in love!!! When I ran out of my sample I bought a full size but was very disappointed. I had to squeeze the tube half way down before I could get any product out. It seriously has about the same amount as my trial size..

I may buy this again. This is my go-to on days off when I'm not wearing my usual full face of makeup. A little goes a long way for light to medium coverage.

I think I would have loved this as a 15 year-old. At 35, not so much. To it's credit, it is full coverage, and the package design is clever and hygienic. Other than that... no, no no. It's like stage makeup. Orange stage makeup (I'm pinky pale). I didn't think I had any outstanding wrinkles or pores, but man... this product found them! It sunk into every crease and crater, especially on the eyelids. I struggled to blend it, and it's almost impossible to wash off! I think I washed my hands at least 3 times. I can't wait to try to get this off my face.

Do you know when I came on here to review I was all "can I be the ONLY one who doesn't love this CC cream?" I was literally relieved to see the people in my age bracket have many of the same "meh" and "it's a no" response that I did with this incredibly hyped and popular cream.... One thing I noticed with myself and many other people who don't love it is the fact that there is an ingredient that is sucking the moisture out of our face and making it look very dry. I WISH I knew who the culprit ingredient is! I have normal to dry skin - NC 20/25 and I use this in Light. Fair is a bit too light. I just don't get how this cc cream can make my skin look so bad. I feel like I'm a FAIL with so many IT cosmetics when so many others love them! What can I say that's positive... hmmm... well, the packaging is good. The premise is good in that it has such a high physical sunscreen and good for your skin actives... but there is not much more positive things for me to report on. It sits in my marionette lines and highlights the crepiness under my eyes. I have tried both the regular version and the glow/glitter version... I've tried them combined, separately, with a brush, with a blender, with my fingers... and it still continues to show me no love. What prompted me to write this review is that I thought I will give this CC cream ONE more shot today and all I want to do is go home and wash my face b/c it feels so tight and dry.... For me, Illuminaire is a much better (though lower in SPF) mineral makeup cream. But for my skin, I think I will stick with GA Luminous Silk, Face Atelier, and Shiseido Syncro Glow. I do want to try Osmosis though.. but this is a FINAL pass from me. It's getting de-cluttered.

Pros:
- medium/buildable coverage
- comfortable to wear
- great packaging with a pump/travel friendly
- spf 50+
- natural finish
- easy application

Cons:
- not great for oily skin
- not long lasting

Overall, if you have dry skin, I think you'll love this. It provides a beautiful natural look with good coverage for a CC cream. It's a great, quick, throw-on foundation for everyday. The problems that I had with it include it's lasting ability. I would say for my oily skin, it stays for roughly 4-5 hours with a setting powder, so for long work days it looks faded by the end of the day. I would still consider purchasing this because it is quick to apply, no streaking or dry patches because it is so moisturizing. For those long days though, I still reach for Estee Lauder Double Wear. For me, this is probably a winter/fall foundation just for the sole reason that I have oily skin and it most likely won't hold up during the summer at all.

I am not great with eyeshadows and these are the easiest mattes ive tried working with. I hated the tartlette in bloom pallette. I dont even like mac shadows. But these are so nice and it is very natural. I use the peach and pinks as a blush too.

Moisturizers -It Cosmetics -Confidence in a Cream

I was in line at a Sephora store, and saw a travel size version ($14) in the waiting area; I decided to try it out because I've been hunting around for a new moisturizer. I have a normal skin type and I was looking for something to keep it normal, but give me the smoothness and hydration I've been looking for.

The packaging states: "Perfect for all skin types, even the most sensitive, IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream deeply hydrates, restores radiance and reduces the look of pores, uneven texture and discoloration. Proprietary Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate is activated upon contact to immerse your skin in moisture for powerful results that you'll see instantly, and more dramatic results over time." I also love how it is paraben-free, hypoallergenic and non-irritating..

It's been about a week and I'm truly impressed. I take a pea sized amount and dot it on either of my cheeks, my chin, and my forehead. From there I blend it out in circular motions over my entire face and neck. The feel is creamy and smooth, and has a satisfying fragrance. So from the packaging:
Deeply hydrates - yes.
Restores radiance - yes.
Reduces look of pores - yes.
Smooths texture - yes.
Reduces discoloration - yes.

Once you've applied it and let it dry for a bit, you may still feel a light residue that's a velvety feeling, but it feels like you have new skin! And it is definitely working throughout the night, because I cannot believe how amazing my skin looks and feels when I wake in the morning!

I also use this cream in the morning as a primer under my makeup. I've gotten so many compliments this week and the credit definitely goes to this product!!

Medium coverage, feels like genuine skin (not heavy or cakey), breathable, easy to apply AND provides SPF. However, with my combo skin, it separates in oily spots and really clings to even minor dry spots, making them extremely noticeable! I had skin problems I never even noticed until this foundation pointed them out... yuck. I would hate to see what it wears like when it’s actually hot and summery outside!! Did not appreciate the way it separated on the tip of my nose and my forehead. I’m disappointed, because on first impressions I was IN LOVE. Maybe better for normal skin types?

I have incredibly sensitive eyes and was really pleased this pleased it didn't make my eyes run or give my sensitive skin a rash.
It's also so thick you could probably spackle all the walls of your house with it.
It gave full coverage, after I put on some colour corrector. It gives way better coverage than any other concealer I've had and the travel tube will probably last me 2 years. And absolutely brightened things up.
No, it did not cover my fine lines - NOTHING COVERS FINE LINES. Wear those lines with pride, people! You earned them!
But it did not accentuate them either.

It's really, really lengthening. I loved the results. but when I put it on, even very carefully, with hand mirror below, eyes down, ziggging up, slowly... it's so wet I'd always get some on my eyeshadow and have to do repair work. :(

I only use it for "heavier" make up nights/days. It works incredibly well. I use such a small amount. No creeping, no edging, just a very good product. Not drying. No rash (sensitive skin).
