Lakme CC Complexion Care Cream- Review:


 Hi Ladies,

       Finally I was able to put my hands on the Lakme CC Cream and after using it for a while, I am ready to review it. I have used Garnier BB cream, Ponds BB cream and the Maybelline BB stick and now it was time to take one step ahead and try a CC cream , so read below about my experience with Lakme CC Cream:



About Lakme CC Cream:
Lakmé CC stands for Complexion Care cream. It combines the goodness of your daily skin cream with just the right touch of make-up to give you that perfect look in just a few minutes. Its skin care benefits include sun protection (SPF 20), moisturizing, brightening and freshness while its make-up benefits are an even skin tone and basic coverage. SKIN CARE + MAKE-UP: Brightens, Moisturizes, UV Protection, Conceals, Refreshes, Evens Skin Tone.

How do i choose the right cc shade for my skin?: Lakmé CC comes in 2 shades - Beige (for a fair to wheatish complexion) and Bronze (for a dusky complexion) enabling you to choose the right shade for your complexion. It is a light formulation that ensures the cream is easily absorbed into your skin and also gives it a perfect, even tone that looks natural and not made up.

Lakmé CC Cream is designed for you, the modern woman who needs to look her best at all times. However, a tight and busy schedule can leave you with little time to look after your skin. But now, you can kiss your skin care worries goodbye. CC cream takes care of your skin as it brings together the best of skin care with just the right touch of make-up to give you instantly styled skin every day. It comes in an easy-to-carry tube so you can take it with you wherever you go to give you instantly styled skin anywhere, no matter what the occasion.

How to test: Take a small drop of CC and apply on the back of your hand. Gently blend into skin. To showcase the difference, compare the non-CC cream hand to the one with CC on it.

How to use: Dab and apply the cream in dots across face and neck and gently blend it using finger tips. Take a small amount of cream in your palms and evenly apply all over face and neck.




Price: Rs. 250/-

My experience with Lakme CC cream:



Packaging:  It comes in a faded golden colored tube with a sliver cap. The details are written with bright pink color which makes it look attractive. The outer cover is of a bright pink color which is just so good looking. The tube is quiet sturdy and convenient.



Shade: I chose Beige for myself which is the lighter one from the 2 shades available.





Texture & Coverage: The texture is very soft and blend-able  It gives a velvety feel and blends into the skin like magic. It’s neither thin nor thick but a perfect formulation. As Lakme states CC as Complexion Care, yes it does helps in brightening the complexion after application and hides all the imperfections without leaving any white cast on the face. The coverage is build-able as needed. It keeps me matte till 3-4 hours and after that my T-zone starts getting oily. It can be used to conceal the under eye area also. It gives a matte effect so a good option for oily skinned gals though the dry skinned gals can always use a moisturizer underneath.




What I like about Lakme CC Cream:
  • Super chic looking packaging
  • Affordable
  • Available all over
  • Velvety texture
  • Blends easily
  • Hides imperfections


What I don’t like about Lakme CC Cream:
  • There should be more shades available


Final Thoughts: I feel this CC Cream better that BB creams but would like Lakme to introduce more shades so that it wont be a problem for the Indian beauties to chose the correct shade for themselves.

Rating: 4.5/5

Will I recommend? Yes I will as it will suit the oily skinned gals too and the coverage is build-able which makes it opt for daily wear as a make up base.

Love,
Navneet.
