Today I’m sharing a product that I got on a whim over a year ago in the Sale section on Sephora’s website. They had only one shade available-I think this one is called ‘Bronze’ but I could be wrong. The reason I’m sharing this is because it’s still in the sale section! Is it worth it? Is it there for a reason? Find out below.
To be concise, CC creams are colour correcting creams targetted at correcting skin tone, while BB creams are more for giving you light coverage while blurring imperfections. I bought this for $15CAD on sale (Reg $35) because it had good reviews.
-A little goes a loong way
-A great addition to correcting foundation that is too light
-Does not work well on its own-can blend a bit patchy
-Way darker in colour than I expected
I’m not surprised this product is in the sale section because it is so freaking dark. If you apply this all over your face and you’re a white girl, you will startle yourself! This would be fine on someone who had darker skin, but I expected it would just give me a little bronzing action, nothing crazy. That being said, it’s a great thing to add to foundation if you get a tan and want to darken it up a bit.
In terms of colour correcting, yes it does correct that fact that I wasn’t tan and after I put this on I can be varying extremes of tan! I do notice some redness diffusing as well, but that could be due to my foundation. Not a bad product really, and I’ve had it for over a year so it will last you a while.
