Some make-up fans might think the perfect base doesn’t exist, but chances are they haven’t tried one of the three IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ formulas. Created with plastic surgeons and formulated with a plethora of hydrating skincare ingredients, the ingenious CC+ Cream works to colour-correct and provide lightweight yet full coverage, so skin still looks like skin – just a little more perfected!
There are three versions to choose from: the original Cream (SPF 50), glow-boosting Illumination (SPF 50) or shine-reducing Oil-Free Matte (SPF 40). All provide really impressive UV protection, meaning you can use this throughout the year and don’t need to worry about using additional SPF in the warmer months.
They are all available in 12 shades (four fair, four medium and four deep), so if you know what shade you are in one of the formulas, it’s super easy to select a shade in another.
A true original
Let’s start with the first launch of the range, and a QVC bestseller: CC+ Color-Correcting Full Coverage Cream. This has received a huge amount of press hype for its buildable formula, incredible coverage and ability to smooth over pigmentation issues, redness and irregular texture like a dream.
Key ingredients include hydrolysed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants – all found in core skincare products across our beauty department at QVC!
If you have a fairly balanced complexion (not too oily, not too dry), then this would be a great option. Whether you use it all-over as a traditional foundation, mix with moisturiser for a lighter look, or even apply as a concealer, you’re sure to love the velvety, even-toned finish it creates.
Reveal your glow
CC+ Illumination Color-Correcting Full Coverage Cream is all about adding radiance to your skin – that never, ever looks glittery or cakey. It’s perfect for drier or more mature complexions, as it imparts a dewy look that seamlessly counteracts sallowness and smooths over dry patches and fine lines like a dream. If you love the original formula but prefer a touch more illumination, this is the product for you.
The hero ingredients in this formula are hyaluronic acid, niacin, peptides, hydrolysed collagen and antioxidants, plus a host of luxurious oils, including avocado oil and grapeseed oil.
Keep it matte
You might not love a glowy, radiant look – and that’s OK, because IT Cosmetics have something for you too! CC+ Oil-Free Matte Pore Minimizing Full Coverage Cream features the core ingredients of both original and luminous formulas, plus oily-skin friendly ingredients like charcoal to detoxify, and colloidal clay and tea tree to help skin look and feel beautifully balanced.
The matte (but never flat) finish smooths over enlarged pores and works to effortlessly blur imperfections, while the oil-free formula has been specifically formulated to help keep excess shine at bay.
