It Cosmetics CC Cream - Worth The Hype?

{This Post contains PR Samples}



I remember reading about the IT Cosmetics CC Cream the first time on The Anna Edit and I was immediately drawn to it. A glowy foundation with medium coverage that is also long-lasting? Sign. me. up. So I immediately went over to Douglas and treated myself. I have now been using it for the past year. So today I thought I would share with you whether or not I think it lives up to its promises.




Glow
YES YES YES. For me personally, it has the perfect amount of glow. My skin looks healthy and youthful when I wear it but it's not that glowy that it slides off my face. It just hits the sweet spot of the perfect amount of dewiness. 

Longevity 
Yes and no. I have pretty dry skin, so on me, the cc cream stays on perfectly without looking dry or cakey. However, I can imagine if you have more oily skin this foundation will be too dewy and will simply slide off your face. So if you are in the dry skin club with me, it's perfect. If you have enough of your own oils going on, maybe give it a pass. 

Coverage 
The perfect light to medium coverage. This foundation has enough coverage to cover light blemishes and imperfections completely but it won't cover everything. But this is exactly what I like about a base product. And the best part: it doesn't cling to dry patches. YAY. 

Shade range 
This is the only downside I can find about the cc cream. The shade range is pretty sad. When it first came out IT Cosmetics only released four shades if I am not mistaken. And right now, at least in Germany, you can choose between twelve shades. However, most of them are still very light and pull pretty warm on me. My skin is light but has a neutral to cool undertone. And if you have darker skin you probably have even more trouble finding the right shade. I currently use "Light" in summers. Then I recently got the shade "Fair Light", which I thought would be the same tone as "Light" just a bit.... lighter, well it pulls much warmer. Needless to say, it doesn't look that great on me. I might try out "Fair" soon, but I am afraid this will simply be too fair on me. 

Price 
This really is not the cheapest foundation or cc cream ever. But all points considered I still think it's worth it and I will definitely repurchase once I run out. 

Have you tried the cc cream yet?

  8. I'm now going on 2 years of using this product, and I am still in love with it. I do wanna branch out & try a few more high-end bits that are similar to this (like the Laura Mercier or Nars tinted moisturisers). I've got combination to oily skin, and I don't mind the more natural look. So, if it fades away as the day goes on, I'm not too bothered. Being able to build the coverage if I want to look more glam & flawless is another reason why I love this base! Don't think I could love something more than this haha x

  22. It sounds great! When my old BB cream was discontinued I tried a CC cream, although not this brand, but didn't like it on me. I've found BB cream works better!

    Hope that you are having a great week :) I've got a scarf giveaway on my blog right now :)

  23. I've tried the IT Cosmetics CC cream for a few months. I have a combination skin type so on the hot days, it didn't really work well for me, a bit too dewy. It is a bit pricey so it was another reason for me to revert back to my old faithful - Missha BB cream.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
