Time for another review! Today I'm bringing you a review from one of my favorite brands. CoverFX has launched a new product. They just came out with their CC Cream. Are you 1) A fan of full coverage foundation or 2) Looking to improve and heal your skin? If so, you gotta check this review out!
First off, what is a CC Cream? Well it's basically an upgraded version of traditional BB Creams or Beauty Balms/Blemish Balms. CC creams have more coverage than traditional American BB Creams which are often mistaken for tinted moisturizers.
Let's start off with the packaging. The CC Cream has a similar tube to my much loved CoverFX Natural Finish Oil Free Liquid Foundation. I'm a fan of the squeezy plastic container. It's travel friendly and very sanitary. I like that you can get just the right amount of product that you want without wasting it. That's often the case with open top bottles and even pump dispensers.
Here's a swatch of the product. On top is what it looks like without blending and below is blended in. As you can see, the shade is a teeny bit light for me but you can see that it offers a good amount of coverage.
Right now, the CC Cream comes in 8 shades in the Pink, Neutral, and Golden Category. I love this system because I can easily pick out my shade. I know i'm a golden, so I chose G-Medium Deep (the only other option in the category was light medium) as I'm on the tan side right now from my summer vacations. The shade match is a little light for me, but in about 2 months it will be perfect when my summer tan fades.
Overall, I really like this CC Cream. I didn't know what to expect since it's my first product of this type. I find the formula really nice. It has great, buildable coverage and blurs out imperfections. I could wear it sheer by blending it in with a lense dense synthetic powder brush or full coverage with a flat top buffer brush. I find that the CC cream sets almost sets itself without powder but I always set my powder with foundation to make sure it doesn't transfer. Not only does this product cover, but it also actually heals the skin. Here's a shot of me with the product on. I'm also wearing a little bit of contour and highlight to get a perfect shade match. However, you can see that it does give flawless coverage.
I think the CC Cream is great for anyone with acne scarring and skin issues because it has great coverage and also will help your skin heal over time. It's a nice alternative to have a full coverage foundation that actually does your skin some good as opposed to just covering up the problem. Once again, thumbs up for CoverFX and their high quality, pro products. You can find the CC Cream at www.CoverFX.com
