If you haven't already noticed it Cosmetics has become a trend of mine. I'm really loving their products! So far their CC cream has been my favorite product. Just to name a few benefits.. moisturizing, excellent coverage, dimished red, 50spf, anti aging.. do you really need me to go on? Now they came out with the same great CC cream but added illumination. I feel it has a little less coverage but overall the same benefits. In my bathroom I really didn't notice much illumination.. and I was glad because I didn't want to look like a 13 year old with glitter on her face. While driving to work sitting in traffic I found myself horrified when I looked into the review mirror only to notice my upper lip sparkling! Yikes certainly don't want to emphasize that! Sorry It Cosmetics but I will be sticking to the traditional CC cream. I won't be buying this one again!
