Final Thoughts
I think this is a total dupe for the It Cosmetics CC Cream. It’s a thin formula and has full coverage. It covered all my redness and you can’t feel it on the skin. It has a dewy, tacky finish so you’re definitely going to need to set this one. The shade range needs work, but there is a shade match for me. The shade Fair Porcelain in Maybelline products is a perfect match for me. This is the perfect summer foundation for the pool or beach, You get coverage and SPF. (Tip: If you want lighter coverage, mix it with your moisturizer.) In the PM picture, you can see where it’s rubbed off on my nose and chin. Thanks to allergies, I blew my nose 89239 times that day and I tend to rest my chin in my hand and rub off foundation. I love and recommend this and will be reaching for it all summer.
