Lakme CC Cream Beige Review, Swatches and FOTD:

BB, CC… I love these alphabetical creams; they are perfect combination of foundation and moisturizer. We only saw BB creams until Lakme launched its CC cream few months back and within a flash it’s the most loved and raved product in India. So, I had to try it out. And, today I am going to review the same.

Product Description:
This instant stylist brings together of your daily skin cream with just the right touch of make-up to give you skin that looks styled by an expert, everyday.

Price & Quantity: INR 250 for 30ml.

Key Ingredients:

Usage Direction:
For best results dab over cleansed skin and blend in till absorbed for instant brightness and a perfect finish. Use every day.

Shelf Life: 2 years.

Shades Available: Bronze (for dusky skin) & Beige (for fair skin).

My Experience with Lakme CC Cream Beige:

Packaging: Lakme CC cream comes in a very stylish looking classy packaging. The tube is quite slim and handy, perfect for carrying it in purse. It has a bottom screw cap which is very hygienic.
Texture & Smell:
This cream is quite thick and perfect in consistency. It can be blended on the skin very smoothly and nicely. Only one pea size amount covers my whole face and half a pea size amount for the neck area; so one tube will survive a long time. Also, it is water based, which is much safe for our skin. It smells unexpectedly nice, I really love the smell.

My Take:
Lakme CC Cream Beige is available in two shades, beige and bronze, though the MUA in the store suggested me the bronze one, I got the beige one. I knew the bronze will be little bit darker for my tone, and I was correct (as always). Anyways, I got it before my big event (classical guitar performance) and thank God I got it! It is absolutely amazing in one word.
This CC cream is perfect for daily wear; it gives a proper coverage and nice glowing texture to the skin. It is not also over powering at the same time. The finish is so smooth and opaque that it needs no compact of setting powder afterwards. I often use it alone to create a natural no make-up look.
Now, the staying power is amazing. I wore it with full make-up for 7 hours and it stayed put and intact. And, in that long time, I often went running from 5th floor to 3rd floor and here and there, thus sweating a lot; and after a point I also lost my emergency tissues; but still my make-up looked perfect.
I wore it three times for long hours and I am really happy to say that it did not cause me any irritation or break out. Overall, this is my new best friend for both every day use or for a full make-up look.
The Good Points of Lakme CC Cream:
  • Gives a nice coverage.
  • Smooth finish.
  • Perfect for both every day use and full make-up look.
  • Stays for long hours.
  • Survives sweating.
  • Smells heavenly.
  • Does not cause any break out or rashes.
  • Affordable price.
  • One tube will go long way.

The Not-so-Good Points:
I am sorry; I am blindly in love with this; no flaws I see.

My Rating: 5/5

Do I Recommend Lakme CC Cream?
Yes, get it! It will give you everything you need to do before stepping out.
