(Studio Gear: CC Cream* in "Natural" - $34)
First I would like to state that this is a sponsored post. I can not be any happier that I was able to try this product out. I always liked BB creams just for days where I was to lazy to do my makeup and did not want to put much makeup on. This is actually my first time trying a CC cream and actually even hearing about a CC cream so I was very excited to try this out.
About The Product
"Hydrating CC Cream transforms and enhances your complexion in an incredibly light, smooth formula. This foundation simultaneously fights aging, retains moisture, and covers and treats blemishes with a non-oily, perfectly radiant finish." It offers up to 72 hours of hydration
- Prevents fine lines and wrinkles with collagen building ingredients.
- Restores skin elasticity by promoting moisture retention.
- Brightens and illuminates skin with a non-oily, complete coverage application.
The Hydrating CC cream is offered in three colors as shown in the above picture: Linen, Natural, and Wheat.
When I first put this on my hand, I had to recheck the color on the box because I thought I got a completely wrong color! I did not expect it to come out of the tube white. I then dabbed some spots on my face and blended it in with my beauty blender. It didn't smell that bad but it doesn't have a chemical kind of scent to it. As I blended it in, I noticed it that the white color started to blend into my skin. It's a color matching formula. I have never tried anything like this before.
Yesterday morning I put on the Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream. I went on smooth and easy but I was not impressed with the coverage. I still had a little bit of redness and some marks that were very noticeable. With my BB cream, I am able to just leave my house with it on but with this CC cream, I felt like it didn't do the job for me.
This morning though, I gave it another try again. In the directions on the box they state: "Apply daily over moisturizer or by itself, as needed wear alone or under foundation. So I tried wearing it with the foundation. I put my primer on and then on top of the primer I put the Hydrating CC Cream and then my Naked foundation from Urban Decay and it gave me a really nice flawless look. It kept my face feeling moisturized and hydrated. This item is more as a tinted moisturizer for me.
This product did last long on my face and kept my face feeling hydrated through out the day.
The only downside to this items was that lack of coverage. I will definitely be using this product though under my foundation since my skin is dry in the winter.
I wouldn't let my opinion of this product stop you from looking at their website because they have other amazing products to check out: http://studiogearcosmetics.com/shop/best-sellers/hydrating-cc-cream/
