Lakme CC Cream in Bronze: Review and FOTD

I know I might the last person in the Indian beauty blogosphere to review the Lakme CC Cream but as they say better late than never right.Anyhow I bought this cream out of the sheer curiosity as to how it was any different from all the BB creams that I had tried. I have been wearing it for almost 2 months so I know everything about it now and I will be sharing the same with you today.

Price: Rs 250 for 30 gms

What the company has to say about it:

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.

The Lakme CC Cream comes in a a pale golden tube packaging with a screw on silver cap and I definitely find the packaging very attractive.

The CC cream has a creamy, thick  but smooth so even though its on the thicker side, it blends easily. The finish is somewhere between soft matte and dewy. It does give your skin a natural glow and even out the skin tone. Coverage is quite sheer in my opinion but you can easily layer the product to get a better coverage.

I found that on my oily skin if I wear a moisturizer under the CC cream then my face becomes oily within an hour so I tried it without a moisturizer and feel it worked better as I did not see any shine on my skin for around 3 hours after which I had to blot it or set it with powder. Dry skinned ladies will definitely need moisturizer other wise it might give a patchy finish and highlight dry patches.

The staying power is around 4-5 hours and longer if you don’t venture out too much. But in case you have an oily skin you definitely need to carry blotting paper around otherwise you would end up shining like a disco ball.It has SPF 20 so you can easily skip sunscreen. The product doesn’t claim any specific beauty benefits and neither did I notice it affecting my skin in any way.

Apart from the lack of oil control, another major problem with this product is the fact that there are just two shades availablebeige and bronze. I bought bronze which matches my skin tone but the dusky ladies out their might find it too light for their skin.

Overall, I like the CC cream. I love the light texture and the fact that it spreads and blends very easily giving a natural glow to the skin  on the skin. I wish it worked better on the oil control front and that it had a wider range of shade selection but its still a good investment especially for those of you who are starting college as it can act as a quick base for daily wear.
