Chanel CC Cream

January 7, 2013

chanel cc creamSpring is in the air!!!  And with it, comes a plethora of new beauty offerings!!  I’ve yet to try a CC cream, mostly because I hadn’t seen one from a brand I trust.  Perhaps that’s going to change now that Chanel has launched it’s own CC Cream!  It’s a tad pricey, and the reviews out there aren’t top-notch… but maybe… just maybe……  After all, who can resist the double-locking Cs?  😉

I had the opportunity to test this out over the weekend, and must say, i absolutely love the Chanel CC Cream!  It currently only comes in shade 02 Beige, which works for the average fair to medium Asian skin tone.  Coverage is generous for a BB/CC cream, and it was able to correct most of the redness and even some leftover pimple scars on me.  I used it over a makeup base and it gave a dewy, polished look for a nice weekend.  It did turn shiny over my forehead and cheeks by the end of the day though, but that is a general issue I have with all Chanel makeup products and nothing a dusting of loose powder can’t fix.

The Chanel CC Cream is currently available at all Chanel counters in Singapore, and retails for SGD82 for 30ml.
