One of the best color cosmetic launches of the year, in my opinion, has been the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream in the Oil-Free Matte version. This new IT Cosmetics CC Cream Matte has taken the makeup world by storm, and for good reason!
You can read my IT Cosmetics CC Cream Matte review by clicking the button below.
In that review, I talked about my initial thoughts after using the CC Cream Matte for about two weeks.
I have used the IT Cosmetics CC Cream Matte a lot more since then, and if you read my original review, you will see that I was not 100% happy with the color that I was using at the time.
In the summer months, I usually use the shade Tan in the original IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream, but in the CC+ Cream Matte, the shade Tan was not the right shade for me. I believe that because this formula uses a physical sunscreen versus a chemical sunscreen in the formula, that the colors are a bit different from formula to formula.
I was thrilled when IT Cosmetics recently sent me the entire shade range to try, and indeed, I was not the Tan shade, but I was the Neutral Tan shade. Neutral Tan is more of a light brown shade and it matches my self-tanning skin tone perfectly.
Now that the summer is quickly coming to a close, I am sure that I will be moving down to the Neutral Medium shade, which is a bit darker than Medium.
Here is a rundown of the shades from lightest to darkest.
- Fair - Ivory
- Fair Light - Ivory Pink
- Light - Taupe
- Light - Medium - Pink Beige
- Medium - Soft Beige
- Neutral Medium - Natural Beige
- Medium Tan - Golden Beige
- Neutral Tan - Light Brown
- Tan - Light Bronze
- Rich - Golden Brown
- Rich Honey - Caramel Brown
- Deep - Rich Bronze
