Pur Minerals CC Cream is a new color complexion correction CC Cream formula with a broad spectrum SPF 40 that recently launched in four shades. Like many brands Pur Minerals skipped over the BB Cream option and headed straight into a CC Cream formula.
Pur Minerals does hold the market for highest SPF offerings as many of these US CC Creams are a minimal SPF of 20-30 but not much higher. This in itself makes the formula special.
Let’s have a look!
Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream ($42) was one of the very first CC Creams that popped up here in the US earlier this March.
This is available in five shade selections and promises to fade away imperfections while preventing future discoloration while lessening the appearance of dark spots, sun spots, and post ache marks.

L’Oreal Visible Lift CC Cream is L’Oreal first CC Cream formula that promises to brighten skin while evening out skin tone.
L’Oreal has already broken into the BB Cream market with L’Oreal Age Perfect BB Cream Instant Radiance, L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream, as well as L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream but this is their first CC Cream.

Sephora Skin Perfect CC Cream SPF 20 ($26) recently launched in six shades. So if you’re one of those folks that might not fit into the self adjusting CC Cream range Sephora’s version will give you a few options for color.
You’ll see a harder push for CC Creams in drugstores come the Fall but right now Summer rules supreme for mid range and higher end brands that are hitting CC Creams hard. Although at the moment the CC Creams I have tried here in the US are nice enough I’m still really liking what I see from Asia and have come across a good deal of great options from our Korean brand friends.
Sephora’s CC Cream option comes as a surprise as I didn’t really expect them to embrace the trend so quickly. They, like many brands, have skipped completely over the BB Cream craze and just headed right into releasing a CC Cream. I was ever so slightly shocked at the $26 price tag I must admit and that rather low SPF 20.
But I tested it out and here’s what I think!
BRTC has released a Jasmine Waterful CC Cream SPF 50 to my absolute delight. BRTC Jasmine Waterful CC Cream launched recently in Korea and being a very big fan of BRTC Jasmine Water BB Cream I thought it was a promising addition to my CC Cream Collection. At the moment, I must say I am really loving Asian CC Creams as they offer just the lightweight coverage I seek with the benefit of correcting but not necessarily overpowering me with too much coverage the way a proper BB Cream does.
