People have complained about this cream being available in limited shades, 5 to be exact. If you’re an Ulta member (online), you can ask an It Cosmetics expert to help you find the right shade for you by letting them know your shade in other popular foundations such as MAC. I am an NC20-25, and Light is a neutral shade that didn’t make my skin look too ashy. Light and Medium are almost similar except Medium is a bit more yellow toned and I didn’t buy that for fear of looking orange, plus I was recommended Light on Ulta.
- Buildable medium coverage which covers most blemishes.
- This CC+ cream makes skin look naturally radiant and healthy.
- Lasted 6 hours on me without getting patchy/sliding off, before I washed it off.
- Despite there being limited shades, Light suited my NC20-25 skin tone quite well.
- Pricey, but 32 ml is a good amount of product.
- I like the pump dispenser; it lets you control the flow of product well.
- SPF 50+.
- Limited shades.
- Promises full coverage but I didn’t really see it.
I use a flat-top kabuki brush to blend this into my skin.
Do I recommend this?
It is a great product for someone who doesn’t like full coverage and could do with one lightweight product which covers most blemishes, while making skin look naturally bright and glowy. I like this on days when I want to look fresh and awake without caking on too much slap.
In Other News
Shows I am into lately: the documentary series Life, which is brilliantly shot and narrated by David Attenborough, and the show Medici: Masters Of Florence, which features a powerful Italian family and two hot brothers in particular (one of whom is Richard Madden :)).
Recently I also watched Lights Out but the ending was really crap IMO.
