My IT CC cream finally arrived and.............

[ Edited ]

OMG It turns me so yellow. I got the Medium based on Desiree's recommendation when she was on w/the combo special back in Nov. She says if you don't know where to go color wise go with medium. It's going back but unfortunately this particular special is sold out so no exchanging for a different shade. I'm going to drop it in the mail box outside the post office at a cost of $6.95 to have learned a lesson. Lesson being, go to Ulta and try the colors. (I'm not standing in line at the post office this time of year)  SoJust a heads up for anyone considering ordering the Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC that the medium has a seriously yellow base. 

 

It didn't look at that bad in my bathroom mirror but when I took my mirror out in the living room this morning where there is a lot of natural light I couldn't believe I went out yesterday wearing this. I had only seen myself in the bathroom mirror. The deli-counter guy and the store register lady must have thought I was jaundiced.

Not a fan of IT cosmetics---same thing happened to me--altho I did find it on Ebay at a much lesser price and tried it--ended up looking like I had a layer of yellow mud on my face, it was so thick. -just tossed it in the garbage---no more IT for me.

@shaggygirl @wagirl   I personally tried IT foundations...all offered, just to see what the hype was about. I found them ALL quite yellow and more coverage than stated. The shades are also not forgiving as stated. The ladies are there to sell and are not concerned if some kits come back. Chances are some will be kept. That's enough for them.

Re: My IT CC cream finally arrived and.............

My other beef with IT foundations is any product that claims to replace everything you already use....eh, at the same strength? Serum, primer, moisturizer and SPF is a waste in foundation. No one uses foundation on neck and chest and not enough foundation on the face for the recommended protection. 

It seems more effective to use serum, let sink in, dry. Spf, dry. Moisturizer, same and then apply foundation. Most of the time primer is an "add on", but if you like it, does it work when already mixed in with all the other products? I doubt it.

Crazy! Like the OP, my lesson is learned too.

Has anyone worn this for long enough to notice if the formula may have changed? My friend has worn the CC cream for 3 years and says the last tube she purchased was thicker and the color was a bit off?

Guess I am lucky....IT works for me.  But when in FL next month, I will add SPF !

I've always wondered if they don't have the product you want to exchange in stock, are you still charged the shipping fee?

I had actually used the Celebration Foundation powder form, the original in the black compact for quite some time then one day in Ulta picked up some Bare Minerals and did half my face with each. That's when I realized the Celebration Foundation was too yellowish. I've been using Bare Minerals since then. So why I let myself get convinced to try the CC cream I HAVE NO CLUE. Although maybe a different shade would have worked. I won't know till as I said, I try samples at Ulta.

@shaggygirl  I had the same problem with the medium.... I bought a light  and mix the medium with the light and it is much better.  But , the medium is very yellow.
