I’m not usually one to fall for infomercials… but I fell for it. I saw an infomercial for IT Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC Cream with SPF 50 first at home, and then on a plane. I took that as a sign that I needed it! I was delighted when I saw that it was offered in a tone for darker toned women.
And then this…
Alas! My excitement was short lived. Once again, I had counted my chickens and was left disappointed. However, I was very impressed with the coverage. As you can see from below, it fully covers my tattoo!
But as soon as I put it on my face, I immediately thought of that scene from The Office, when Darryl booed Michael to show him how it would feel to be boo’d. He didn’t like it at all. That’s how I felt about this CC cream. 🙁
I decided to let it dry down a bit and apply some powder over it, but still it looked pasty on me. I really couldn’t help but notice that the CC cream had great coverage and my skin felt pretty smooth. It’s no Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ (photos here), but it’s pretty darn close. I was going to return it, but because I like the coverage so much, I might just keep it and buy those Cover FX Custom Color drops. I just hate that I have to buy something else to make this work.
Did I learn a lesson here? Not really. I looked all over and couldn’t find a proper review on this CC cream in this color. So for those of you out there that was wondering about this, here ya go!
I will keep you all updated on the drops experiment, if that happens.
