Sample Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream by iT Cosmetics|Beautylish


Velvety Pouch

I want to give a shout out to a wonderful friend¬†I¬†met on facebook, Jenny who shared this amazing link,¬†Beautylish. All I got to do is enter their promotion for free sample and that’s it. I don’t have to follow or comment 30 pages like giveaway do.Here is the¬†thing, I know I’m not a¬†person who will win any giveaway or to enter giveaways are too much work … I don’t jump the gun, I tried and been there ¬†but with no luck. If cosmetic brands want to send me BEAUTY samples, don’t mind I do –¬†¬†it’s right up my alley, lol!

Anyways, two weeks later I received a small parcel in the mail box. Tell you the truth, I sort of forgotten about it and was taken by surprise. I have short memory span which grew with age.


This¬†product I received for free¬†from Beautylish. As a matter of fact, I remembered receiving¬†IT CC+ cream in Medium shade sample in my previous Ipsy bag. It’s a travel size sample¬†that comes¬†with a cute black velvet pouch. To read more on the review I did in my previous post, you can click the link here.


The color Medium, it’s a perfect match for me. Hurray!¬†I totally love this CC+ cream by IT Cosmetics and¬†if medium is not your color,¬†there¬†are¬†several color options.


It applies flawlessly. I usually just use my fingers which saves me time since I don’t have to wash my foundation brush as often. It goes on evenly and I love how smooth my skin feels.

It has an amazing consistency and it blends very well. Love love the coverage with end result skin looking flawless.


It contains SPF50+ which is a big deal for day wear.¬†I would say, it’s the most efficient in the market.¬†Speaking of which, this covers better than any tinted moisturizer I’ve used and as well as many liquid foundations.


I just need to put this out to all of you, this CC cream has a¬†high tag on it but I’d be totally open to buying it since it really works amazing on me. I get so many compliments on my skin.


Overall, I don’t only like ¬†but love the finish on this. Very natural–not matte or dewy at all–and gives my skin a bit of a glow.¬†This product is amazing to me!

If you haven’t tried this product before from IT Cosmetics, then head over to¬†¬†or IT Cosmetics website to check them out. Try the tester and do color swatch n-store. You don’t have to take my word for it, try it yourself and let me know what you think.

I’m not affiliated with Beautylish or any affiliated companies whatsoever. It’s my appreciation to thank both my good friend, Jenny and Beautylish for this sample gift.

5 Sweat-Proof Know How Makeup Routine This Summer

Summer’s arrival brings some major advantages: trips to the beach, barbeques with your friends and longer days. Tell me that you love summer!!!

Unfortunately, there are also some pretty clear downsides, for crying out loud – heat, heat, heat!¬†When the mercury‚Äôs rising, your routine should be tweaked to match it ‚ÄĒ otherwise you’ll find yourself with melted makeup and frizzy looks. Nobody wants that and so I’ve done some research and gather here¬†five simple but effective tips for beating the heat, even in the dead of summer!

Are you ready for it! Then let’s dive in …

1. Use CC Cream Рthe last thing you want is to apply a heavy foundation all over your face on a hot sweltering heat. It alls but guarantees breakouts and most likely melt off by the end of the day. Try using a lightweight cream for instance the It cosmetics CC cream which you can apply all over your face and looking flawless.

2. Use Clinical-strength Deodorant – when the heat gets up to the top of the mercury, no ordinary deodorant will do. You need to choose¬†the one that gives you 100% odour protection especially if you’re planning of been outdoors most of the time. I read that secret clinical strength¬†power can fight against stress¬†heat, leaving you feeling fresh.

3. Opt for Updos – long curtain hair is a bit of a hassle in the hot summer. It drives me crazy and guarantee it drives you too, hahaha!¬†It‚Äôs easy to cool yourself off with cute braids, buns, ponytails or an¬†updo ‚ÄĒ equally chic and practical! Sounds cool, right!

4. Minimize Makeup РI love wearing makeup but when it gets too sweaty and uncomfortable outside, I tried to wear as minimal a makeup possible.The tip is to try focusing on one simple area of your face, like your eyes, and leaving the rest bare. Summer is all about looking breezy and natural.

5. Use Waterproof Products – you might surely attend a pool party maybe in the future and if are going in for a spontaneous dip, you don’t want to end up with mascara smeared down your cheek. Try to swap your regular with a¬†waterproof products. I know that¬†COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara¬†works. So, go ahead and¬†splash away! ūüėÄ

These are some useful tips that I hope some of you who are reading my blog find them helpful and interesting.

How do you update your look this summer? Let me know on the comment section below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

it Cosmetics CC+ & SPF 50+ |Ipsy Glam Bag

Hi Everyone!

it cosmetics

I have been wanting to try this it Cosmetics CC+ cream since I first heard it¬†from some youtube beauty gurus¬†raving about it. I’m curious to try it out myself if the chance permitted and as a matter of fact, I did want¬†to have it in¬†my summer makeup essential. I was ecstatic when¬†I got a sample tube¬†in my Ipsy glam bag. Yay!!! To subscribe just hit click on the link “Ipsy” for $10 monthly subscription.

it cc cream

The shade I got is in Medium and the net wt: 0.135 fl oz. The size is as big as a Mama¬†finger (taken from children finger song). I love the toothpaste tube packaging idea. It’s easy to use and with the pointy head¬†on the tube it controls the cream from oozing out too much. The plastic tube is transparent and¬†hence making selecting the right shade a breeze ‚̧

cc cream spf 50+

In the packaging, it Cosmetics claim that this CC+ cream contains SPF 50+ UVA protection which is chemical free sunscreen and paraben free.

Well, you probably know all the alphabetic face cream right from BB cream to EE cream but let me briefly explain what is CC cream then. CC cream stands for Color Control or Color Correcting cream and its function is to simply reduce the uneven skin tone or skin redness. Many claims that BB cream and CC cream are tinted moisturizers containing sun protection. In my opinion, CC cream is more of a new and an improved BB cream with a much higher UVA protection.

it cc cream formula

I feel that this CC cream is lighter than a BB cream. The consistency of this formula is perfect to be applied on the area that you needed it most. On top of that, it has an amazing smell to it and the texture blend beautifully to hide the skin imperfection.

So¬†far, after a week of trying it out, I’m satisfied with the performance and it doesn’t cause any breakout whatsoever. It hides the redness beside¬†my nose area and the pigmentation is incredible. All you need is a little formula and a little goes a long way.¬†Anyways, I’m going to continue to wear this for awhile to see¬†if there is any¬†difference or changes to report back later.

it cc cream color swatch (2)

Hopefully this color swatch picture gives you a good look of the shade and consistency. There are five shades available from lightest to medium to tan and dark rich shades to choose from. Selling online at it Cosmetics for $38.00 a tube.

Overall, I’m happy with this CC+ cream and the appearance it gives on my makeup look.¬†Will I purchase a regular size tube this summer. You bet I will (giggling)!.

Well, that’s it for my take on today’s CC+ cream and until next time, stay beautiful.

Have you tried it cosmetics’ lately? If yes which product did you picked?

Thanks for reading.
