Lakme has recently launched their 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream in 2 shades- beige and bronze. The name itself tells us that it is a colour transforming/changing cream- something never heard right? I was very eager to use this the moment received, and it has certainly lived up to my expectations! Here is a review on it:
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Tired of using a bunch of different products every day to get that perfect look? What if you could have your fairness cream, moisturizer, sunscreen and concealer all in one seamless CC cream! It’s time to toss the clutter aside and make way for first colour changing CC cream from the house of Lakme.
MY TAKE ON LAKME 9 TO 5 CC COLOR TRANSFORM CREAM- BRONZE AND BEIGE
Packaging: The CC colour transforming cream comes in tube form similar to the old CC cream. This new cream has a brown and white gradient print on it which totally resembles the colour changing property of this product. The tube comes in a pretty and shiny pink coloured box. The tube has a narrow opening which allows only the required quantity to come out. Overall, the tube is travel friendly.
Texture: The cream is very creamy and has some really fine black granules. They disappear once you blend the cream and do not clog pores.
Shade: This cream comes in 2 shades- beige and bronze. Cream appears white initially like any other usual fairness cream. After blending, it develops the colour and blends perfectly with your skin tone. The beige is a bit lighter than bronze, but the difference is not huge. The beige and bronze both go well with my skin tone, maybe because both have yellow undertones.
Fragrance: The cream has very sweet smell which is not OTT and won’t bother sensitive noses.
How I use and staying power: I used the bronze shade while I gave the beige shade to my mom for use. My mom has normal skin and she really loved the cream. Bronze and beige both suited me (I tried the beige also :p) well.
I make tiny dots all over my face and blend it using finger tips. The cream blends quickly and easily giving a smooth and soft matte finish. I have oily skin so I was worried if it is creamy and greasy. Though, my face looked dewy after 2 hours but not oily, so I was happy! It is not completely matte but looks quite healthy with the subtle dewy finish. It gives very light coverage and can always be topped up with a good compact powder for medium coverage. I think this is perfect for daily office wear, and I am happy I got this.
