It Cosmetics CC + Illumination Color Correcting Cream Review

Another makeup review from It Cosmetics! I have been quite happy with the brand and got a cushion foundation, under-eye concealer and powder from the brand. I’m lucky that their shade “Fair” in foundations is actually the exact color of my skin so it’s a sure choice for me. Although it’s an expensive brand, I feel like the quality overcomes the price. I would never buy cheap drugstore foundation or concealer to put on my delicate face. You can read my previous review about their cushion foundation here.

I love the easyness of cushion foundations, but the downside of them is that they tend to run out super fast, so this time I got the CC-cream from It Cosmetics. I have never had CC-cream I think! I always felt like they’re too cakey and went for BB-creams instead. This CC-cream got me hooked because it has a lovely illuminating effect and I’m all about glitter and glow and therefore sucker for all things shiny!

The packaging is lovely and compact. I especially love the pump which allows easy application and there’s no wastage of product. It Cosmetics should pay attention to the long names of their products though! They tend to clutter the product with all the attributes and ingredients and plus signs 😀

The CC-Cream itself is quite thick in texture so it’s not the most easy to blend on your skin. But it does correct all the little flaws on the face with one thin layer. Also the illuminating effect is quite beautiful. The finish is semi-matte to matte, I would say. It doesn’t need powder on top to set it.

I wanted to take a photo in direct sunlight so that the illuminating effect would show (but you cannot really see it). I do like the glow it gives especially in daylight when the sun hits the face 🙂


  • makes skin even-toned in one thin layer
  • pump container is handy
  • product lasts longer
  • illumination is visible
  • no need of powder on top


  • has quite strong scent
  • thick in texture, doesn’t blend easily
  • price is high
