Today I'm going to talk about a product I've been waiting to try out since it's launch, kindly sponsored by the people over at Cosmetic-Love. (http://cosmetic-love.com/) They are always having promotions on their products and their prices are very reasonable!
Etude House has two options in their CC Cream line, 01 Silky and 02 Glow. I opted for the Silky one as I tend to get oily in my T-zone after a long day. The texture is exactly that, silky, smooth, without shimmer or shiny particles. CC Creams tend to have less coverage as opposed to BB Creams, but provide color correcting properties for an even finish. This is great for those who don't need too much coverage and are looking for something light.
Fresh out of the tube, it comes out white with tiny balls of color adjusting particles that burst upon applying. Therefore it is recommended you apply this with your fingers so that you can make sure it's applied smoothly.
I do have to say oil control is not a trait of this product as it tends to get a bit oily after a couple hours of wear. However, with some powder and oil sheets, it's quickly resolved so it's not that big of an issue.
Personally, I have an uneven skin tone and experience the most redness across my cheeks, nose and chin. However, since it feels a lot lighter than foundation and even BB Cream, I think for summer I can get away with just using CC Cream with a little bit of concealer and powder. For someone who has extremely dry skin on the cheek area, it is not enough as a moisturizer. However after applying moisturizer, it applies very smoothly.It definitely brightens up any dull areas on your face and helps minimize pores in photos so I would say this is a great makeup base for those who wear foundation or BB Cream or alone for those fortunate enough to have great skin!
