Product Review – IT Cosmetics CC Cream

Processed with VSCO

Happy Monday Bookish Babes! In my end of year blog survey the majority of you voted for more product reviews so I’m bringing you one today – the first one of 2017! I’ve been wanting to try the IT Cosmetics CC Cream for a long time and I finally got it for Christmas thanks to my bombtastic husband.

So let’s talk about the high claims first. This is marketed as a full coverage,  brightening color corrector, anti-aging serum, pore minimizing primer, dark spot corrector, moisturizing cream with an SPF of 50. I’ve only been using this for a few weeks so I don’t have a solid review on the skin care benefits, but I can comment on some of the other claims.

Application & Coverage: I have the lightest shade available – Fair –  which isn’t necessarily too dark for me, but it is a bit too yellow toned. Once I’ve finished all the rest of my makeup and made sure to blend down my neck it really isn’t bad, however it’s definitely not a perfect match. As for the coverage this is NOT full coverage as the claims state. I would say this is more of a buildable medium coverage. If you have acne, scars, or any other discoloration you want covered I recommend spot concealing before applying the cc cream.

Finish: I absolutely love the look of this! While not full coverage it still manages to blur your skin a bit and has a nice satin finish. I’ve found that this does not cake up easily which it great for a buildable coverage foundation.

Longevity: This holds up pretty well on my oily skin, although I haven’t tried it out during the summer months when I need a really heavy duty foundation to last all day. I’ve worn this for 9-10 hours without it majorly breaking up, just some minimal separation around my nose and chin areas. With that in mind I’m not sure this will be a good summer foundation for me.

Final thoughts: I actually quite like this foundation and have been using it several times a week since Christmas. The less than perfect shade match makes me think I won’t end up repurchasing this, but we’ll see. Have you tried this foundation? What were your thoughts? I would love to know!
