I love this cc cream. I got it to wear it to work. I work in a factory with no ac or heat and this product holds up well. I wear it to make my skin tone look even due to acne, redness and dark spots. I have oily skin and I follow up with a translucent powder to lock in the cc cream and help mattify my face. I use medium and it matches me perfectly. It blends out easily and apply it using a foundation brush or I buff it out sometimes.
My routine :
Wash face
Moisturize
Apply cc cream
Follow up with translucent powder
Spray makeup holder

Bottom line is...I love this stuff. Makes me look natural because it's not full coverage and evens out my skin tone.

Ok,I love this Cc cream but it has a manual.
It was perfect on my oily t-zone with the light primer. But due to a better cleanser and bha exfoliant my t-zone isn't really oily anymore.
And this products can accentuate dry spots.
Because of the bha exfoliant I needed a product with sunscreen. This Cc cream contains that.
I use it on days I want to put something on but don't want full coverage. It doesn't Hide my redness but is Softens my appearence and I received multiply compliments on my skin when I used it.

So how do I use this:
1. Clean my skin
2. Toner
3. Moisturiser! (I use moisture surge Clinique)
I wait ten minutes to let the moisturiser sink in
4. Cc cream (thin layer, it gets cakey when you use to much)
I tried applying it with my fingers, but I prefer my foundationbrush
Edit: It works great with the Real Techniques stippling brush!
5. Concealer (got deep dark circles under need my eyes)

Pro
- Your skin but better
- Perfect skin tone match (fair)
- No allergic reaction
- Stays put on my nose
- Sunscreen spf 30
- Corrects dark spots (in combination with my bha exfoliant)
- Lovely Sa with good advice, was generous with samples and how to use this product.

Con
- Can emphasize blackheads
- No layering
- Needs some practice to apply nice
- Expensive (but I haven't found a better Cc cream yet)

this formula felt greasy and slippery when applying. Even over primer (smashbox photo finish color correcting) and with some setting powder, it felt kinda sticky and did not set to a smooth finish. Because of this, it slid around and off in patches, while collecting in the corners of the nose after a few hours. (note that i spend all day in school w/ P.E. and lots of movement)

I wouldn't say it's awful, but the texture of it put me off. I'll still finish the tube, especially now in the summer because i do like the spf 30

OK I've had this for two months now,and used it every day. I was at Sephora and asked the SA what CC cream she would recommend. She swore this is their best seller and the best CC cream. I have very light/fair skin with sunspots, some redness and acne. It does nothing for me unfortunately and did not help with the discoloration at all. I have dry skin, this CC cream showed off every single flaw, made my skin look dull and dry. It dry's very fast so you have to apply it very quick. Just recently I started breaking out again around my chin area not sure if it's because of this. It has light coverage, I tried applying a little more but ended up streaky, It lasts up to 6 hrs I would say but does end up looking a little orange at the end of the day. I wish I could get my $40 back. I guess this works better for someone who has very oily skin. If you want a CC cream I recommend the IT Cosmetics one, I got a small sample size from Ulta and so far am liking it.

I finally gave this a good few weeks of wear and think it's a good lightweight formula that gives a little coverage. My skin is very dry so I apply it over a moisturizer, and it blends and smoothes out well into a semi matte finish. I did break out a little after wearing it all week, but otherwise don't experience any other problems. I probably won't buy it again though because it was very expensive and use my fingers to apply it so I don't have a whole bunch of product loss.

I have pretty good skin. A little bit of hyperpigmentation, a few pimples sometimes, but generally, I don't need more than light coverage on everyday basis. I'm an olive NC15 now, sensitive, normal-dry skin.

This fits me in the colour light/fair. It's more orange than my skin, but when it's on, it's not visible. I use about the size of a small pea for my face. Goes on easily, looks good upon application, does not irritate my skin. My problem with this: it fades really fast, and looks like I have nothing on in just a couple of hours. I think $40 is too expensive for something that doesn't last. It goea from light coverage to close to no coverage. I can't put more on initially either, as the colour difference would be detectable. The colour selection is pretty OK, but no perfect colour for me. I like that this doesn't crease, gather in my pores, and otherwise looks good, except for the fading

Favorite cc cream so far. Their cc covers better than their bb and most other bbs ive tried. Coverage is great. Covers dark spots and uneven skin tones. Didn't give it 5 lippies because it's a little pricy

I usually use this as my foundation, it looks perfect with Mac Studio Careblend pressed powder over it, maybe a little Mac Matchmaster concealer under the eyes and on any acne/dark spots....it definitely can do without the concealer though because it covers so well on its own. I have super combo skin since switching to this new acne wash - I used to be oily & this CC cream worked on me both then and now. Does not highlight dry spots, goes on even and smooth, can be layered, color choices are decent (not totally perfect though). The sunscreen does not break me out, which is a miracle considering almost every product with it in it does! I also like to use the CC as a primer/base, there are a few foundations i find this works well with, my personal favorite would be Mac Matchmaster though - I love that foundation but find it too heavy to use on its own....using a very light hand I dab on a few spots around my face (after the CC has dried completely) and buff it lightly with my Sigma 180 brush -- CC also applies seamlessly with this brush, I use the color Medium and am around NC40-42 (one is a little light, the other too dark) this CC in Medium is very very close, one of the better color matches I have found for myself being that I live in a very small town and do not have any high brand choices to look at in person outside of what is carried at Ulta! :( I defibtely buy online though, just is tricky :P Love the plastic tube this comes in, makes it very sanitary and easy to travel with - although the tube is smaller than i would like, especially for the price! I still highly recommend this product and will continue to buy it.

This cream makeup is great for covering the dark spots on my face (age and sun). I don't have to use much so applying with a brush, this cream is going to last me a very long time

Great heavier coverage tinted moisturizer type option. I got the fair shade, it's perfect on my skin.

I use a brush to blend it, it doesn't have a very dewy finish its' somewhat matte, has great staying power and good SPF. It covers quite a bit as well. I haven't notice it improving my dark spots but it evens my skin out really well and works a treat.
I bought this to go with the concealer which has been a disappointment due to shoddy packaging. Really love the CC cream though.

I would happily take this away on holidays with me and probably will do to be honest.
