Yes to Grapefruit Correct & Repair CC Cream Review & Swatches

Yes to Grapefruit Correct Repair CC Cream

Yes to Grapefruit Correct & Repair CC Cream ($15.99) recently became available in two shade selections just in time for Fall 2013. The CC Cream rage is just starting to pick up here in the US and I’m quite excited to test out many of these offerings.

For me CC Cream is an obviously great pick as I have fairly ok skin that doesn’t need a ton of coverage. I rely on BB Creams to brighten up duller skin and keep my skin hydrated through the day but they do run quite pigmented. CC Cream is the next greatest solution as they typically run lighter and have more perfecting abilities but don’t necessarily have the coverage of a BB Cream.

In my case I’m looking for a CC Cream to brighten, keep my skin moistened, and even my skin tone with a formula that’s lightweight and breathable.

I think Yes to Grapefruit Correct & Repair CC Cream gets some of this down but it could be a little disappointing in some aspects.

Take a look!

New Mizon King to the Kong Aqua Fitting CC Cream

Mizon King to the Kong Aqua Fitting CC Cream

Everyone’s favorite beauty lover and King of the Jungle has a new CC Cream! Mizon King to the Kong Aqua Fitting CC Cream is a new SPF 30 CC Cream with color correcting benefits that include a highly moisturizing formula infused with black chokeberry. This CC Cream corrects as well as provides coverage in a single color adapting shade that whitens, brightens, and provides anti-aging benefits.

I wanna try this one when it hits shores.

Like all of King’s products this is big size and houses 3.3oz of product!

P.S. Did you watch True Blood’s season finale?! What the hell happened? I’m so confused!? But I love the “Who’s going to make a Target run….!?” For a second there I was positive that entire 10 minute scene with the volley ball game happy family home scene was right out of a Target commercial! Just with vampires….!

I was positive Bon Temps was too small for a Target.

Stila CC Color Correcting Cream Review & Swatches

Stila CC Color Correcting Cream

Stila CC Color Correcting Cream is a new Fall 2013 launch for the brand and makes for one of the first CC Creams that hit the scene earlier this Summer. We’re seeing a good deal of CC Creams now but Stila cornered the market a little earlier on and almost right after Clinique CC Cream arrived Stila CC Color Correcting Cream was right on the heels of that release.

Unlike brands that are promoting CC Cream as a more advanced BB Cream formula Stila CC Color Correcting Cream takes a more traditional CC Cream route and relies on color correcting abilities but not necessarily coverage to get skin looking brilliantly flawless. I think at this point too many brands are focusing on creating a more pigmented CC Cream formulas when in fact a CC Cream is supposed to perfect but not necessarily offer coverage for your face.

In fact, Stila CC Color Correcting Cream does a perfect job doing exactly what it is supposed to do. Being a CC Cream nothing more, nothing less.
