I use the lightest shade of the Bourjois CC Cream (number 31) and it suits my fair skin really well. I did wonder why they haven’t kept the same shade numbers from their foundations (51/52/53) but never mind, there are 3 shades to choose from so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find the one to suit you.
Bourjois CC Cream contains 3 pigments to work its colour correction magic; apricot for fatigue, green for redness and white to mask the dark spots. It definitely evens out my complexion and makes my skin look a lot smoother.
In terms of coverage, it’s pretty light but buildable to medium if you wanted. I like to use the CC cream on its own for days when I don’t want to wear lots of makeup (and when I can’t be bothered to spend ages applying various products – we all have those days, right?) It lasts at least 6-8 hours for me before I need to consider touching it up, something that’s really impressive for a CC cream and especially for a product that’s under £10!
I’d recommend it for the spring/summer transition if you’re like me and prefer a lighter base over the (hopefully) warmer months and it’s also great for younger skin which doesn’t need a full face of foundation, but you want a light coverage that will even out your complexion.
I’m wearing the Bourjois CC Cream with NARS creamy concealer and a sweep of Rimmel Stay Matte powder (in transparent).
Have you tried Bourjois CC Cream? What did you think?
