Lakme CC Cream Review

BB, CC, DD,  ….seriously I can’t even keep up. So what’s the difference between BBs DSC03403and CCs? Is one better than the other?
The main difference being that the CC creams are going to focus more on correcting complexion issues and evening out skin tone.

CC creams are usually lighter in texture (depending on the brand) than BB creams and they will also give you more of a natural looking finish. One thing to keep in mind when shopping for a BB or CC is that the creams can definitely vary brand to brand. If you prefer more coverage go for BB cream.
Mostly CC creams are applied after skincare routine and before foundation…

Coming back to the Lakme CC cream review …

Product Name : Lakme Complexion Care (CC) Cream
Price: Rs 250 for 30 ml
DSC03411

Product claim : 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

My Thoughts ?

I got the shade Beige in Lakme CC cream which is PERFECT for me. I read about this product on my favourite beauty blogs. I had heard a lot about CC creams in youtube videos a year ago and I really waited long for a good CC cream to arrive in India. This CC cream was a year late in hitting the Indian beauty market. .

I use very little quantity and my buffing brush for an even application. The coverage of this CC cream is neat. I have some redness in my chin and nose and just a light amount of this product buffed into my skin with my Real Techniques buffing brush really does the trick!! It’s not dewy so I dust a bit of my Rimmel matte powder over it to set it after adding some concealer where I need it. If I use the product heavily on my face, it looks fake and unnatural. I like my skin to be seen through whatever I put on my face.

Colour correcting optics act to aid a slew of different complexion issues like dullness, DSC03411redness, swallow or yellow skin, or even blotchy redness. Sadly Lakme CC cream doesn’t correct all these issues. But the color correcting formula in Lakme CC do help to perfect concerns like dullness or sallowness. Also it contains SPF 20 so you can withhold any steamy summer day!

When my skin is behaving I use it on it’s on. When it’s blemished I use it as a base under my doublewear  foundation or whatever foundation I’m in the mood for.

Packaging : Comes in a gold colored squeeze  tube. Very travel friendly packaging.

Coverage : Medium Coverage.

Shades Available :  Two Shades are available. Beige (for a fair to wheatish complexion) and Bronze (for a dusky complexion) enabling you to choose the right shade for your complexion.

Texture : The formula has a thicker, creamier texture with a gel-like consistency that gives skin a nice bit of moisture as it corrects. Don’t mistake this for a foundation since it won’t give you full coverage. It will however, even out skin tone, conceal minor redness.

Shades Available :  Two shades are available. Beige (for a fair to wheatish complexion) and Bronze (for a dusky complexion) enabling you to choose the right shade for your complexion.

Pros:

  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Comes with SPF 20
  • Gives sheer to medium coverage
  • Can correct dull-looking skin.
  • No allergic reactions
  • Blends easily
  • Evens out skin tone

Cons :
feels heavy on the skin.
cause a bit of white cast in flash photography .
only two shades available.

Will I buy it again : Yes  !

Final Verdict : At first, I was not a fan. After I used it a few times and mastered the application, I fell in love with it! Just use a little at a time to apply, and blend, blend, blend!

My Rating : 4/5

    • Well said dear ! I guess Lakme shouldn’t have name this one as CC cream … Clinique has done the job better …they have many shades available and also their CC cream is suitable for sensitive skin <3 <3

  25. Cute post! Smile

  26. Good to hear that the color is such a great match for you! That is usually the biggest thing with face products right, finding the right shade.

  41. Great review dear – I liked the CC cream result on my skin Smile Problem I faced that I had to dust pressed powder every time to settle it well

    • Thank You dear ! Glad u liked d review <3
      The problem with Lakme CC cream is dat you need lot of work to make it look perfect, I set it with Maybelline Dream Matte & the combination really works well together.

  42. Nice review.
    I need to try this asap

  43. Shreya I want it yaar ! Pls send it to me Grin Looks great on your skin.
    Is it like foundation ?

  44. Great review! Never heard of this brand to know. Thanks for sharing! ^.~ x
