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".
