Let's Play With CC

Everyone's talking about the CC creams so as my BB cream was all(most) finished decided to have a try on the Clinique's CC.

 The sales assistant at Arena Plaza's Clinique store chose me "light medium" shade. The cream gives UVA & UVB protection, hydrates the skin and gives a nice even colour to it.

 There was a catch...if I buy over a certain amount of money I will get a purse filled with mini samples...So, of course, I chose something else too: a long last glosswear in Guava Gold. 

The samples included mascara, blush, eye cream, facial cleanser, moisturizer and...

...a lipstick in "17 Rosette". A bit too dark & brownish for me, unfortunately.

Now I've tried the CC cream once and it really works. It gives a nice healthy glow to the face without making it greasy. It's oil-free. You can wear it alone or under foundation. I had it alone, didn't need any extra coverage.

ps. CC is the shortening of "Colour Control" or "Colour Correcting".

  1. I like CC cream too, mine is from Peter Thomas Roth. I am in LOVE with the Clinique longwear lip gloss. It is perfect consistency, and it stays!

    1. I've been very fond of BBs as well, but somehow this CC feels even better.

  3. Pitäisiköhän mun kokeilla tuota Cliniquen CC-voidetta? Olen ollut kovin tyytyväinen Vichyb BB-voiteeseen, mutta nyt alkoi kiinnostamaan tämä :). Kiitos hyvänkuuloisesta vinkistä!

    IHana sävy huulikiillossa! Mä olen metsästämässä huulikiiltoa ja tuo sävy vaikuttaisi kiinnostavalta, kun olen niin vaalea. Kauniin meikkipussukan sait ostoksistasi :)!

    Hyvää sunnuntain jatkoa Tibs!
