IT Cosmetics CC Cream Illumination

Big fan of the original IT Cosmetics CC Cream. A fantastic base product, love the stuff. Also strongly enjoy to look illuminated where possible. If by illuminated we mean impossibly glowy and lit from within. Sign me up.

I have and love the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Concealer too. The IT Cosmetics Illumination CC Cream then, looks like a safe bet, destined to be a hit. But you know what they’ve gone and done? Taken the OG formula and bunged a bunch of glitter in it.

Which is not very premium. Was expecting radiance, maybe a pearlescent sheen. Not actual glitter. And that seems to be it, the only difference between the original and the Illumination versions. An abundance of sparkly shiznit.

I do not enjoy a glittery face. I might frequently end up with one, on account of eyeshadow fallout or a misbehaving highlighter, but is not my look of choice.

Honestly, it’s not that bad. The glitter in question is extremely fine, a micro glitter, barely detectable really. Still useable. Just prefer my base products glitter free. Does anyone want that? Glitter in a foundation? Let me know in the comments!
