Stripes, Squares and Rosy Cheeks ft. It Cosmetics CC Cream

Hi everyone! 

Long time no post! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I finally finish my second tax season of the year. The weeks had been exhausting. I could even find the energy to just sit down and write. I miss it, for sure.

I am really excited to share my recent newfound love for a CC cream.  It's from It Cosmetics 'Your skin but better' CC cream with SPF 50+.  I have really been loving this lately. It's a good alternative to a heavy straight on foundation. I still think a BB cream or CC cream or tinted moisturizer or whatever they are called nowadays are just gimmicky names the marketing people came up with.

I would never alternate my moisturizer for this or any of the mentioned above, but I am so glad to swap my foundation for this particular one. The coverage is awesome. I could go away with just one well-blended layer. My skin has been acting up a lot with breakouts on my cheeks and forehead. I feel like this gives lighter touch but comparable coverage of a foundation. Whenever I apply it on, I feel like I just wear moisturizer which it should be doing anyway.

It doesn't cover everything, I still need to use concealer to cover any acne marks or blemishes, but it really does look like skin but better! The SPF 50+ is also a huge plus. One less product I need to pile on before going out the door. This is a great product for everyday use. Not heavy, good coverage, and sun protection.

I was using Dior 'Pore minimizer skin refining matte' primer underneath. The primer did a great job in keeping my forehead and cheeks matte and less oily, which made the makeup stay put beautifully even after 10 hours.

Last Sunday, I was playing with patterns for my outfit. Stripes and squares look pretty good together, don't they? I really like the look especially when paired with jeans. I was going for a semi formal/casual look. What do you think?
