Hi, all! So… it’s been a while. Sorry about that. But I’m back today with a review of Studio Gear‘s CC Cream!
The black and silvery box houses a 1 oz tube. I have the shade Linen, which is the lightest of three shades. Can I just say how much I appreciate that, with the design of the tube, all the product flows toward the bottom? I hate when companies make it hard to use up the entire tube.
The CC Cream comes out of the tube as a whitish cream with little beige spots, which are what Studio Gear calls “micro-encapsulated pigments.”
As you start to blend it out, the pigments start to blend in with the base, and it becomes the tinted cream.
Here it is, fully blended out. This shade was just a tiny bit too dark and too warm for my skin tone, so fairer ladies might find that this doesn’t work for them. It blended out really nicely and provided a light level of coverage, enough to even out some of the redness in my cheeks without feeling like a heavy mask. When I tested this on my face, I didn’t notice any settling into my pores. The cream didn’t blur them out like some foundations can, but it also didn’t make them any more noticeable.
The only real downside is the strong smell of sunscreen. The CC Cream includes SPF 20, which is great for protection, but it has a very, very strong scent that lingers for quite some time.
