It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical CC Cream Illumination is a new illuminating, lit from within glow finish version of It Cosmetics very popular CC Cream that will be launching March 27th on QVC in the CC+ Your Way to Radiant Skin Set.
If you recall It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination launched in 2013 so It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical CC Cream Illumination joins the family with this new finish of CC Cream.
I happen to have a fuller face and applying illuminating anything on it feels like I’m putting a spotlight on the roundness of my face. I also feel like glow-y finishes tend to make me look oily even though I’m far from it. So I am kinda wary of anything that promises an “illuminating” finish!
As of now It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical CC Cream Illumination will be launched within the CC+ Your Way To Radiant Skin so you can’t get this as an individual purchase just yet but should be able to shortly. It comes in a 1.08 tube with a pump just like the original.
A quick glance at the ingredients reveals the formula as being identical to the original It Cosmetics CC Cream with a few additions and absolutely no mica that I see but I’m working on very little sleep here so maybe I missed it. People always tell me how much they love Celebration Foundation Illumination and how it gives them such a pretty glow but personally I thought the formula didn’t really have an illuminating factor at all and I do feel slightly the same about It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical CC Cream Illumination. I’m not seeing the glow-y factor here nor am I seeing an illuminating finish.
On the upside, the formula is the same one you know and likely love!
It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical CC Cream Illumination Swatches
This is a full coverage color correcting CC Cream that contains an anti-aging serum and a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+. It’s super pigmented and has the ability to conceal many skin issues such as redness, acne scaring, blemishes, dark spots, etc while creating a perfect, flawless canvas for makeup.
The texture runs rich and creamy! I sometimes have a little issue with the original formula dragging a tiny bit during application but this feels a touch more hydrating to me and it applies and blends out quite easily. This formula is quite emollient and does have a dewy finish at first but sets to a smooth, softer satin within a few minutes of application. It doesn’t stick to my drier areas and always looks smooth and flawless.
Mainly the It Cosmetics formula is so great because it really visibly brightens skin. I also love how easy it is to customize the coverage using some of their great brushes as you can buff it sheer or apply it heavier for more coverage yet never have it look anything but natural on skin! It also provides incredible wear without oxidizing for several hours of excellent wear. I did notice, for sensitive users, that the normal strong citrus-y fragrance is a little tamer in this formulation but still there none the less.
Overall, if you loved the original formula I have to say there is very, very little different about the Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical CC Cream Illumination formula. I’m just not really noticing a glow or an illumination here! None the less it still applies well, creates a flawless finish, and wears beautifully for several long hours. But…the lack of an illuminating finish might just disappoint. But do take my review with a grain of salt because I happened to not really experience much of a glow from Celebration Illumination either where as many people felt it gave skin a very lovely glow-y look!
