Today I’m going to be testing out a possible dupe for the very popular IT Cosmetics CC Cream, which is a very hyped up product!
TO ALL OF THE SPF NAZIS | Now, I made it pretty clear in the video, but I want to make it clear in words….. I’M AWARE THAT THERE IS NO SPF IN THE COVERGIRL, lol. As I said, I’m not comparing the ingredients… in that regard, they are not dupes, whatsoever. I am simply comparing the visible effect it has on the skin for those, like me, who are willing to use a separate sunscreen underneath their makeup and just want a similar visible effect. I’ve gotten a lot of comments saying that because there is no SPF in the CG, they aren’t even close. Of course, they’re not, in that aspect! But let me make something clear…. you should not rely on the SPF in your makeup. Think about when you go out in the sun without makeup on. The bottle tells you to reapply every 30 minutes, hour, hour and a half, etc. Do you reapply the IT Cosmetics CC Cream throughout the day? If not, then the SPF does nothing after a certain amount of time. Also, unless you apply a HEAP of this stuff on your face, you’re not getting SPF 50 protection, due to the fact that in the testing labs, to test the amount of protection of a sunscreen, they use 2 milligrams per square centimeter! Of course, it’s better to have any kind of SPF than none, but you can buy an SPF of 50 at Walmart for $10 or less and put that under an affordable foundation-type product. Also, I didn’t call these dupes. If you’re going to comment, at least listen to the video.

    Anyone that uses both, or have tried covergirl? Wondering how it would work with dryer skin, the IT cc works amazing for dry skin. If anyone has any feedback I'd love to hear:) thx for the video, great dupe!

    I've been a mua & esthetician for years & I've worked for many brands I personally love IT CC Cream I think its best for a more mature skin I definitely wouldn't wear a primer under it but still prep your skin with serum or moisturizer & using your fingers is always my best method but then maybe I'll pat over with a beauty blender & set.
    The bye bye under eye is the real mvp of IT though I could use just the concealer & I'm going to try this BB cream with it Thanks for your review. The BB looks great on your skin ๐Ÿ˜

    IT cosmetics CC cream is almost completely full coverage if you ditch the sponge โ€œblendersโ€ … use a brush or even better your fingers. I was disappointed at first as well but I tried it with my fingers and it works great. Other people Iโ€™ve talked to prefer a dense soft foundation brush. Plus quality ingredients are going to benefit you in the long run. Good to know thereโ€™s a cheap version for when I canโ€™t spend as much.

    I love It Cosmetics but I must admit it has always felt like a LOT on my face and by the end of the day, I am ready to get it off! Bc it like, just sits there on my face and shines. Even with a ton of powder, which just makes it heavier. Come to think of it, maybe I don't love It so much after all. I have never tried Cover Girl bc once I tried it as a child, and it turned orange on my face (it was probably the wrong color – DUH) and I've always shied away from it since. That's stupid, I know. Maybe I will try it again. That has been a LOT of years ago! LOL

    IT Cosmetics does nothing for me. I've tried the various products and I've found Maybelline BB cream to be so much better for me- and much more affordable. Will try CoverGirl next!

    BB and CC are very different. BB are made to cover blemishes, and they are Matt and hence they last and cover the blemishes better. As for CC is for colour correcting, for those who have uneven colour skin tone, this is the best, and also if you want to have a natural and a shiny from within look, CC IT is the one to go for. the texture is much more lighter comparing to BB cream. Especially BB cream is generally to cover blemishes.

    I'm looking for a lightweight matte cc cream for tanned skin. IT cc provides great coverage, but way to heavy for humid and extremely hot Florida weather. Anyone have any recommendations?

    Talc is terrible for you! That ingredient alone should make you think twice before putting on your face.

    good information…canโ€™t wait to pick up some covergirl matte bb cream. i like the It cc cream mainly for the appearance!!

    A little bit of IT CC cream goes a lonnggg way, including the Undereye concealer, depending on which coverage you want. Usually, one less-than-half a pump will give you a sheer coverage, half a pump is medium coverage, and a full pump is full coverage. I bought the travel size and like it so much that I bought the full size. At $38, you will get your money's worth, it will last a long time before replenishing. However, if I had seen this video first, before buying the full-size, I would have given this a whirl. I bought the BB cream by NYX, before IT, and I used this for quick appointments or going to the store. That is what it is, a glorified moisturizer. So, maybe I'll buy, Covergirl to replace NYX. At $38, you may not want to put this on to run out on quick errands.

    I heard about this dupe a long time ago….and hurried out to buy this CG product. It looks great on me when first applied, but unfortunately, oxidizes like crazy after a few hours. I stopped using it because I don't like looking like an Oompa Loompa!

    Super late to this conversation and first video of yours Iโ€™ve watched (great video btw). Iโ€™m also not a giant fan of IT CC. Iโ€™m a more โ€˜matureโ€™ woman than you and my skin is more normal to dry, yet I still find the IT too glowy and just all in all underwhelming esp for the price. So Iโ€™ve been on the lookout for a new one. I think Iโ€™ll give this cover girl a try.
    I did want to mention something about the spf. From what Iโ€™ve learned, and a recent Wayne Goss video confirmed, in order to get the high spf of any product, you need to apply a LOT of it. Like a teaspoon. (Wayne say a mil, which I think is a milliliter and the spoon he demonstrated with looked about like a tsp) Which is really a crap ton of makeup…you should check out his demo, itโ€™s kinda hilarious.
    Since I use retin a and need a lot of sunscreen I canโ€™t even count on IT CC to do the job alone fwiw, Iโ€™ve been using Australian Gold tinted sunscreen spf 50 and I love it. Itโ€™s fully mineral and leaves a beautiful matte finish. I can wear it alone as a light cover foundation or as a great primer under foundation or bb/cc cream

    Also I felt no matter how I primed it or lotioned after about 30 min my face felt like it had a hard shell on it, it was itchy and burned a little and the color seemed to change and get darker.

    I bought a bunch of it cosmetics yesterday and I couldnโ€™t wait to get home to try it. Now I canโ€™t wait to return it to ulta. My face look terrible!

    I like the It CC cream. I'm new to it & trying different applications. Do NOT apply with a sponge; use a brush or fingers. I prefer brush. Moisturize well before applying. Use a primer, but not a silicone-based one. I haven't tried the CG BB cream, but at drugstore price, I will. Hope this helps somebody.

    I think for foundations I still opt for the high end ones because they tend to be a lot better for your skin, skin products are the only ones I would invest in! Everything else like mascara, eyeliner, and lip stick I would just get at the drugstore ๐Ÿ˜ Great review!

    Well, you have to take the ingredients into account though. Does the cover girl use ALL physical sunscreen? what other ingredients are included in the cover girl CC cream and how are they compared to the IT cc cream. But I have to agree the coverage of the IT CC cream doesn't last. it seems it's all soaked up in my skin or maybe it disappears only after an hour or two.

    I'm 49 and was told IT Cosmetics would look good on my skin. Nope! Made me look like an oil slick, separated on my chi not, forehead and nose plus didn't cover squat. Lol

    Hi I'm a new sub. Really enjoyed and appreciated your in depth review. You made it ABUNDANTLY clear re:the difference in the SPF. The comparison was about coverage, etc. I totally am underwhelmed with the IT cosmetics cream" I watch YouTube all the time , and so far,you're the only one ho also doesn't care for it, although, possibly for different reasons.
    I thought the Covergirl side wore better and looked better. BTW, you're very pretty.
    Looking forward to seeing other videos.

  • Ap Wrg Reply

    I like the way your face looks with the drugstore BB. Much prettier. Wish it had sunscreen though and take out the talc.
