I haven't had the pleasure of trying CC-creams before, but they should basically act like a lighter version of a foundation that evens out any imperfections on your skin. It was the beginning of the summer when I got my hands on Lumene Color Correcting Cream. So it was right time to get something less heavier for warmer weather. While I am not too worried about going out bare faced, that is what I have been doing for couple of weeks with this hot weather, it is still good to have a option to put on your makeup and still feel comfortable.
This cream comes in pretty tube that gives product out like you want it, not how the developers of it wanted to. I have the shade light, but is also comes in a medium and deep tone. Even if I have a bit of a tan on right now it still suits for me when blending good. So not knowing prefect shade isn't too crucial and will be still wearable when you pick the wrong one.
Lumene promises it to act in a six different ways, act like a fine textured foundation that evens out any redness, cover like a concealer, smooth skin like a primer, highlight and brighten skin like an illuminator, last long enough like a long lasting foundation and give sun protection of SPF20.
It is suitable for every skin type and gives a semi-matte finish.
The consistency of it is perfect, not too thick but not to liquid either. It blends easily and you don't need to work hard with it. You don't even need a brush with it to be honest, hands work just perfect and give you desirable finish. I do give credit to it for its coverage, it cover pretty well any redness or discolouration, I only need to put concealer under my eyes when using it. You won't get the layer that full coverage foundation would give you, instead you get natural looking buildable medium coverage.
The primer part of it is also very true, it hides any big looking pores, smooths skin so well and gives it good power of staying on longer than expected. I doesn't highlight as much as I was hoping, but that isn't big deal as dewiness can also be added separately with a proper highlighter. Therefore I would say it has more of a matte finish but not in a suffocating mask way, It just has the ability to keep oiliness at bay.
What do you think of CC-creams? Am I too late to jump on the bandwagon?
