Does It Cosmetics CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte tinted moisturizer hold the secrets of the universe?
Nah, but wouldn’t it be nice if it did, though?! I could finally figure out what the heck happened to Jon B.!
My club jam back in the day. Someone please rescue him from whatever wormhole he feel into.
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40 ($38 for a 1.08-oz. bottle)
The teal tube may have a summery look, but it’s something I’ll wear year round. It’s a lightweight medium-coverage tinted moisturizer that’ll have everyone around you believing you’re having a seriously sweet skin day — although, heads up, it won’t fool the frenemy who goes straight for the jugular and points out a ripe zit immediately before saying something like, “Me? Oh, I never get pimples.”
Bless her heart!
“Developed with plastic surgeons, Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte delivers color-correcting full coverage, anti-aging skincare, and SPF 40 broad-spectrum physical sunscreen—all with a poreless, natural-looking matte finish that lasts. This multitasking, complexion-perfecting breakthrough instantly camouflages skin imperfections including dark spots without creasing or cracking and is clinically tested to reduce shine and control oil for up to 12 hours. It’s also infused with charcoal to detoxify, colloidal clay to absorb oil, and tea tree extract to combat blemishes—plus, an advanced anti-aging serum made of hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and antioxidants. You’ll see powerful results instantly and more dramatic results over time.
“It delivers seven benefits, all in one! Full-coverage matte foundation, SPF 40 UVA/UVB broad-spectrum physical sunscreen, brightening color corrector, hydrating anti-aging serum, poreless finish primer, dark spot concealer, and moisturizing day cream.”
Smaller pores and even tone? Yes and yes. And here’s the kicker, which takes it over le top: the matte finish totally locks down shine, and it’s just matte enough. Not too harsh.
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40 is similar to…
- Too Faced’s Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation: CC+ has a little less coverage, and a flatter matte finish.
- NARS Velvet Matte SPF 30: Similar finish, texture and coverage, but CC+ is rated for a little better sun protection at SPF 40.
- Estée Lauder Double Wear Light: Very similar. It’s thicker than Double Wear, which has a runny consistency, so it takes a little more effort to spread and blend, but coverage, finish and wear are basically the same. I like both but prefer Double Wear because it isn’t as peach. It’s yellower, which is a better fit for my skin tone.
You could easily matte it down more by dusting a powder on top, but I prefer a setting spray instead. A li’l CC+ Matte, a spritz here, a spritz there, and I’m good for the day. 🙂
