Ever since It Cosmetics launched their Your Skin but better CC cream with SPF 50, I wanted to give it a try. I love makeup as much as I love running, that is why I’m in the constant search for new beauty products that could please my preferences. However, I don’t like to buy more products than what I actually need. Therefore, when I buy something I need to be 100% I’m going to like it and use it until is completely finished.
After hearing amazing stuff about this CC+ cream, I was seriously considering to purchase it. But then in March, Ulta released their 21 Days of Beauty where the powder version of this product was going to be 50% off. That was a deal I could not pass. This face powder originally retails for $35 and that day I got it for $17.5.
The major benefit I noticed from this powder was that is basically like having three products in one = SPF 50 + Foundation + Setting powder. Even if I was paying the full price for it, I think is worth it. Plus, is very convenient to apply in my rushy mornings. Just one step and my face would look like If I had applied foundation and set it with powder. Two steps in half of the time, not bad for me.
The coverage of this Airbrush Perfecting Powder could be light for everyday use, or could be built for a full coverage foundation. I myself would use this powder for every type of occasion. I have combination skin so this product suited me pretty well. The medium shade was also the perfect tone for my complexion. My face skin can get pretty sensitive sometimes and some foundations and SPFs can give me crazy breakouts. This wasn’t the case for this powder, which also contains collagen and anti-aging peptides.
The only downside to this product is the sponge that comes with it. It would apply the product too heavy in my face and it ended up looking cakey. I also tried to applied it with a Real Techniques Stippling Brush but wasn’t really pleased with the coverage. I finally used a thiner and porous sponge (that I had from another powder) and that worked perfectly for me.
I purchased this product on April 1st and have been using it every single day, multiple times a day and for multiple types of looks, for the last couple of months. I think it seriously worth the price. If you’re considering getting it, I would recommend having a beauty consultant at Ulta suggest which is the best tone for you. I would also suggest you to try another method of application, if you’re not pleased with the sponge either.
I hope this information has been helpful for some of you who are interested on getting a new foundation at a considerably affordable price.
