If you guys did not know I adore makeup! I spent every second of every minute scrolling through Cult Beauty or IGTV looking at people's make up video's to get some inspiration. I wish, I had the money to buy it all but I'm pretty happy right now with what I have. Having said that towards the end of 2019 I started watching IT Cosmetics UK Instagram Page and fell in love with the UK and Ireland Brand Ambassador Rose Gallagher's make up tutorials. Last week I was looking online and decided to buy the IT Cosmetics CC cream which Rose loves and so does so many people! It is their best seller and I was very intrigued as to see why. So, I ordered mine on Boots website and ended up using my points to but the CC it was great but now I have no points left! Now before I begin, I have the lightest shade which is fair, yes I have very fair skin and I love glowy make up. I am a big fan of natural, light coverage make up, I love the saying 'less is more' when it comes to make up because that is very true. I hate anything that is too thick and looks cakey. I love to be able to see my skin. Anyway lets get into this review..
It delivers 7 benefits, all in one:
- Full coverage Make up
- Anti-ageing with SPF 50
- Brightening colour corrector
- Pores appear reduced
- Reduce the look of lines and wrinkles
IT Cosmetics recommends you apply 1-2 pumps of the CC Cream to clean skin and buff the product into the skin using circular motions all over the face. Also Your Skin But Better CC cream is also available in CC illumination SPF50 and CC Matte with SPF40 finishes.
I was a bit concerned that the formula would be too thick when I applied it onto my skin but it wasn't.. and I was very surprised by that. I have seen so many YouTubers/Bloggers use it and really like. I only applied 1 pump and it worked great because I was able to mix in my Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter and that made a really nice dewy combination. It is also nice on its own however I do feel like they could bring out some more shades as I honestly think that the shade I have which is the lightest one is probably quite dark for some people. This is what love about Too Faced as they bring out so many different shades and you cannot go wrong. The CC cream is £31.00 which I think is quite expensive but the packaging is really good and you do get a lot of product so you cannot go wrong! I also love how it comes with a pump so it is very easy to apply.
Would I purchase again?
I would 100% recommend the CC Cream to anyone who perhaps wants to try something new, who likes full coverage and even if you like a glow it still leaves your skin feeling fresh. It also doesn't make your skin look cakey and thick, That is one of the things I look for whenever I'm on the hunt for a new foundation/ complexion booster.
Of course, whatever works for me, may not work for you. I am very fair and prefer a dewy, glowy finish. If you have been following me on here for a while you may have seen a few of my absolute favourite beauty products which I go back too all the time and I use them every single day.
Some people love the full face of makeup and I must say I do my own version of that using the CC cream and I love it just as much. Sometimes it is also nice to mix in the CC and the concealer together and create a lovely base for your make up, leaving your skin with coverage but still looks like you are wearing hardly any makeup. I go always go by 'less is more' when it comes to beauty.
Have you tried anything makeup or skincare product from IT Cosemtics and if so, what did you all think?
