It Cosmetics CC Cream | Worth The Hype?

*{This post contains affiliate links}

If you haven't heard about It Cosmetics yet, you probably lived under the rock the past two years. And if you heard of them, probably because of their hyped CC cream. I first discovered it through The Anna Edit and Lily Pebbles what feels like years ago. But it was quite hard to get hold of here in Germany so I quickly gave up on ever trying it. Now that it has launched in Germany as well I just had to take the plunge. 

As far as I know, it was only available online back when I got it in February, so finding the right color for me proofed itself to be quite the challenge. (Especially if you consider the price tag). I went with the second lightest shade as I read this one pulls the least warm. My skin is quite cool and pink toned so warm tones always look horrible on me. I must say the shade is probably a bit too dark for me. I can definitely make it work over the summer months but I think I will get the lightest shade 'fair' sooner or later. Maybe I will end up mixing both just like Anna does. So yeah, not impressed with the shade range. 


But the shade range is honestly the one thing I can complain about. I have worn this foundation in 40°C heat and -10°C cold and it hasn't moved a bit. It looks so natural while being middle to high coverage. I haven't been this obsessed with a foundation in a long time. So even though it is not the cheapest, I can see myself investing in the lighter shade for the coming months. Another thing I love is the packaging. It might not look as chic as a Chanel glass bottle but it is so practical. I absolutely hate traveling with heavy and breakable foundation bottles so this one quickly became my go-to for these occasions. And every other occasion if I am completely honest.. The finish is pretty high coverage for a CC cream and still manages to be glowy. Such a dream.


Have you tried the It Cosmetics CC cream? If so, which shade are you?

  5. This review makes me want to get the CC cream right now! If it doesn't move, it's pretty impressive - I always feel like lighter foundations/bb and cc creams will just fade throughout the day. I always struggle to find the right shade for my complexion though so that might be an obstacle. How great would it be if they extended their shade range?

  6. I'm shade "Fair" and I absolutely adore this foundation - it's going to take a real hero product to shift my allegiances since finding this gem of a brand to be honest, their products just work so well for me - have you tried their concealer yet? It's unREAL!!!

  12. I caved into the hype last November & picked one up, I'm the second to lightest shade, can't remember what it's called :') I am SO glad that I did buy it! It is the best base product I have ever used, and I'm not turning back from it anytime soon. If anything, I only want to branch out & try other high-end CC creams. I think it's 100% worth the money, and I won't ever go back to drugstore bases. This is my absolute fav!!

  13. I've used the Bye Bye Under Eye before and it's an alright concealer! I've heard lots of mixed reviews about the CC cream and have been on the fence, but maybe I'll try it!

  27. It sounds lovely. I heard a lot about it but I never tried it before. If it stays put this is perfect. I am wondering if it is hard to wash off :) http://www.bauchlefashion.com/2018/11/armani-prive-rose-alexandrie-review.html

  34. Oooh I need to try. I used to use BB cream in the past, but it would make me break out.
    Maybe CC cream is better.

  37. I was thinking that I had been living under a rock because I hadn’t heard of this brand before but then I looked on my desk and saw that I actually have a sample from them of their concealer. I will have to try this foundation out. I am looking for a new one. Thanks for the review!

  38. I am really curious about this base, but since it hasn't been released here, I have to wait for that or to a trip. Getting matched can be a real pain, so ordering it online isn't an option.

    Wishing you all the best,

  39. I ended up picking up the wrong shade too! And have to mix it. However, I agree the formula is gorgeous! I half can't wait to finish it so I can go and get the right shade, half dread finishing it because then I have to pay for it again!
