Mary Kay CC Cream Review
This CC Cream has a faint plastic scent which is no big deal to me. The consistency is creamy with a tiny hint of gel like texture to it. Due to its texture, this product is best applied with the use of the fingers. The warmth of my fingers makes it easier to blend the product. I got the shade light-medium which looks light beige on my yellow skintone. After a few seconds of application, this product can instantly mimic my truest shade and tone. You can refer to the photo below. It definitely looked like my second after few seconds of blending it. Yes. I got that parang-wala-naman-nangyari expression on my first use not knowing that I have been build up the product too much with 3-4 layers. After a few minutes, this CC Cream can even turn darker than my skintone (this is not visible on photos). Blame it to my acidic skin for reacting this way. :( I really think that this product lives up to its name as a Complexion Corrector Cream because it adjusts with one's skintone. To remedy this, I just a lighter shade of foundation and I get even coverage. This product covers minor imperfections and can totally get rid of redness. It feels light on the skin and is very hydrating. It claims that it can hydrate the skin for 10 hours and truth be told it does not leave any crazy patches on my very dry skin. It does not cake except if you use 4 or more layers. As for staying power, I noticed that my Tzone gets oilier after 3-4hours of use. Thus, touching up is necessary. I do not think that this product will work well with very oily skin types.
