Sadly this must go back. #1. Glitter. As far as I'm concerned, glitter has no place in a daily staple product. I had no idea until I started to examine my face close up. For stage or tv, ok. For an adult woman with an adult profession, this is a no-no.

I purchased this in Light which seemed like a good, slightly dark match for my NC20 skin. It oxidized on me and had an odd …

I initially bought the non-illuminating (regular) version in Light, and it was great but a little too dark. When I went back to the store, I saw this Illumination (Sparkly) version - and also that it came in Fair. Truthfully, I should have bought Sparkly Light, or Regular Fair, because Sparkly Fair is a little too light. But it's fine; it's also fairly sheer and I've almost …Read more

I have all of It's offerings and this was the worst for my sensitive, rosacea skin. It minimizes my redness and at first hour looks great. I thought it was going to be perfect for my n/d acne prone skin.(Yes I still get zits, even at my age.) It is very shimmery as the name suggests. But after about an hour this moved around quite a lot and settled in blotchy clumps.

Also …

I actually made an account here just for this review. I’ve been lurking but never commented.

So I wanted to love this, I really did. Everyone raved about this CC cream, and I love the dewy look. It looks great for maybe four hours (even with a setting spray).
I have dry skin and after four hours this cream starts flaking and fading. I even mixed it with different facial oils to …

Total glitter face, doesn't look bad from afar, but when you lookup close your face is covered in micro glitter. I just wanted illumination, not glitter. Had to return to sephora after trying it twice.

I'm surprised at the less than stellar reviews on this product. It says 'illumination' right on the bottle, of course its going to have some shiny-type of effect to it. I love this CC cream, which is more like a foundation. I use the shade fair which is perfect for me. It evens out my skin tone and gives me a lovely glow. The packaging is a tube WITH a pump - what more could you …Read more

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 …Read more

I bought this cream in light which is a smidgen too dark for my skin alas, the fair is too light. I like the coverage however, I would like to know what kind of cream it cosmetics uses in their infomercials. On tv it covers dark under eye circles, red splotches, and every discoloration under the sun. On me it won't cover the age speck I have, and certainly not my faint dark under eye …Read more

This is more of a foundation rather than a typical BB/CC Cream. I do really like it, though. It has high SPF, a lovely medium-to-full coverage luminous finish (as everyone else has mentioned there are noticeable shimmery particles, but that doesn't personally bother me), and cooperates very well with dry flakes and redness. The downsides are that it exaggerated my smile lines, it never …Read more

LOVE It, goes on easy and blends well. My new favorite now that Carmindy has been discontinued. Some complain of it being to glittery... always shake your foundation well before applying. I'll keep buying IT and so many other products they sell.
