I am so lazy when it comes to full coverage foundation. I’m always on the hunt for light coverage products or good BB and CC creams. I absolutely looove It Cosmetics so I’ve had this product on my wish list for a while. I am in love with their brow pencils (they are the best brow pencils I’ve ever used, and I’ve used so many), their foundation brush is the best and their powder foundation is so good! I’ve never spend a lot of money on a foundation before so I always hesitated to buy the full-sized product of this Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream because it’s on the pricey side. I found a trial size at a recent Ulta trip for only $15 and decided to get it. At 0.406 fl. oz. it’s a pretty good deal considering most foundations are 1 fl. oz.

I love that It Cosmetics has trial sizes for a few of their most popular items, this one was only available in the shade Light, but it looked pretty close to my skin so I decided to get it since it was only $15. I wasn’t aware that they also have a Fair shade which is what I should be using as the Light was too dark for me. This product was amazing! Like I’ve said, I don’t like heavy foundations so I really loved that this was like a BB/CC/Foundation/Tinted Moisturizer/Concealer and Sunscreen all in one! I wasn’t expecting this to be as pigmented as it was while still feeling so light. I don’t know how they did it, but this feels very light like a face lotion or cream while giving you the coverage of a full coverage foundation.
You can apply this with your fingers (like a lotion) but I really liked using my foundation brush to apply this. A thin layer is all you need to give you amazing coverage! This made my face look smooth, gave me great coverage while still looking like skin (as opposed to the airbrush effect some foundations give you). The lazy girl in me absolutely loves how easy and low maintenance this is and that it already has SPF50 included since I can avoid that extra step. I live in Arizona where it’s pretty much summer all year, so having an SPF that high in my foundation is really helpful. Since this was a bit darker for me, it did make me look like if my face was tanned…unfortunately the rest of my body isn’t right now so it looks a little bit off with my pale skin. I do self tan a bit in the summer, so this will be perfect for those occasions. I’m glad I only got the trial size since the color is off, but I really want to get the full-sized version in Fair. This CC cream looks great on its own or even with bronzer/blush/highlighter. I was worried it would have a strong SPF scent to it, but it actually smells like lemon cake which was actually quite nice. Another great product from It Cosmetics!
