Hello Magnifico’s :)
The long awaited weekend is here. Finally, I can put that corporate look to bed and bring out my dressy outfits on show. It’s that time of the week when flats are replaced with heels, glasses with chokers and nude lips with vivid pout. But the new Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream seems to be an irreplaceable force from the list. The cream which was predominantly made to serve me achieve flawless office look is now playing a vital role in offering me a spotless game face for the weekend shoots. Let’s find out more about the new ‘CC color transform cream‘ in a detailed viewpoint.
Product Report :
Tired of using a bunch of different products every day to get that perfect look, what if you could have your fairness cream, moisturizer, sunscreen and concealer all in one seamless CC cream. It’s time to toss the clutter aside and make way for first colour changing CC cream from the house of Lakme. Lakme’s first advanced fairness cream that changes color as you blend, to give a make-up finish.
Price : Rs. 325
Quantity : 30 gms
Shade : Beige
My Experience with the Product :
The cream comes in a beige ombre effect tube packaging with a rose gold screw cap. The tube is further housed in pink colored carton which offer the packaging a luxurious vibe. Overall, the compact size and sturdy feel of the packaging aptly checks on the travel friendly box.
The earlier ‘All In One‘ version of the Lakme CC Cream received a lot of complaint due its availability in ONLY two shades. Well, the new CC Color Transform Cream is no different. Again, it’s available in two shades – Beige (For lighter skin tones) & Bronze (For darker skin tones). Thankfully, the shade beige comes to my rescue once again but the limited shade options is still an area on which the brand can work harder the next time around.
The texture of the product is very creamy which allows the cream glide effortlessly on the skin. The light weight formula blends instantly on application and sits comfortably on to the skin, allowing it breathe throughout the day.
The cream settles down to a beautiful dewy finish on application which I simply heart. It instantly offers my skin a fairer and warm tone vibe. Coming to its pigmentation, the cream offers my skin a sheer coverage which works just fine during the office hours. It doesn’t conceal any spots or pigmentation plus my face starts to leak oil from the T-zone area after few hours. Hence, I would suggest to apply a layer of compact powder over the cream in order to cover the areas that needs extra attention.
You can give your face primer a skip as the cream is pretty hydrating in nature. Its moisturizing formula helps keep my skin soft and smooth. The cream is packed with SPF 30 PA++ that protects my skin against the harmful sun rays and the fact it haven’t broken out my combination oily acne prone skin makes it my go to base makeup product on daily basis.
I have experienced a satisfying 5+ hours of wear time. Though, I need to offer my skin few touch ups after 3+ hours as my T-zone area starts getting a bit greasy.
Overall, the product seems a great buy for the quality on offer but certainly there is room for improvement in future versions. I would highly recommend it to the beauties who like to get all dolled up yet keep their look pretty minimal and natural and also to those who are bound to time constraints yet want to look flawless every day.
