CONFUSED: Difference in original IT Foundation and IT Foundation moisturizer?

Interested in new IT Foundation Mositurizer. It comes in Fair Light, possibly a better color than Fair.  I can't keep track of all the IT foundations.

@lavendar- Hot 'n' Flashy Angie said there's very little difference between the IT CC+ Cream and the Bye Bye Foundation in application and how long they last.  I think there are more shade options with the Bye Bye Foundation/.

I have both and the CC has better coverage, in my experience. I can't tell that much difference between the two, but think my skin looks smoother with the CC, too.

There is the 1) orig cc cream, 2) the bye bye foundation moisturizer and 3) the bye bye concealer in the black tube and 4) the new one now sold in a pot also a concealer. 

 

I have tried all but the black tube concealer.  I liked the cc cream but my skin started to get dry and it became impossible to use....sank into fine lines and accentuated them. The consistency seemed too thick but never had a problem with it before.  Also, it gave a very matte finish.

 

The bye bye foundation moisturizer was darker more orange in my usual shade.  It too sank into fine lines making them seem bigger.  Also had a matte finish.

 

The bye bye concealer in a pot was perfect.  It had excellent coverage but had a lighter consistency. No sinking into fine lines.  Remember....customers are using the concealers as their foundation and that's what I'm talking about.  It did give you a glow that some don't like.  It's not an over the top glow - it's just not a matte finish.  The bye bye concealer in the black tube that I hadn't tried, had a lot of complaints such as there was too much air in it and not enough product and when the pot version appeared they said it was lighter in consistency than the black tube and that a little went a long way which is true.  The pot is small but all it takes is a little bit and you get great coverage but no thickness on your face.  The bye bye concealer in a pot doesn't mention spf on the package but the first ingredient is titanium dioxide which is sunscreen.  The shades are lighter.  For example the medium was way too light more like a fair light, and the medium tan was just right for me despite being way too dark in the other iterations.  

 

There is a 5th product sold at the It website in a clear bottle and the instructions say it is for those who like a sheer coverage.

Re: CONFUSED: Difference in original IT Foundation and IT Foundation moisturizer?

It's as if IT is just packaging the same product in different tubes and calling them different things. They generally look and feel the same to the eye and on the skin.  When other brands have multiple items they call foundation, tinted moisturizer, CC or any other name there is a distinct difference in the formulas.  By that I mean the difference between the textures and finishes can be seen from a test dot on the hand.  I don't find that to be the case with IT.  They seem to have done nothing but create a cloud of confusion around their complexion coloring products.

Re: CONFUSED: Difference in original IT Foundation and IT Foundation moisturizer?

Below in the 2 posts you can compare the ingredients of the two foundations. I really don’t see much difference. The CC has serums and the Bye Bye has moisturizers.

Re: CONFUSED: Difference in original IT Foundation and IT Foundation moisturizer?

To add to the confusion is their compact cream foundations.  They look very similar to one another but there's 3 different ones last I counted.  Maybe someone could outline those for us.

I have the Confidence in a Compact, too. While I find the CC and moisturizing foundation very similar, this is much different. It goes on very sheer, wet like so I only use it for touching up midday. It goes on perfectly over any powders patting it on over top. It gives the best smooth skin effect out of them, but doesn't do well for dark spots.
