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.

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Dation Review & Swatches

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Dation 9

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Dation is testimony to Korea’s sudden trending of rotating or vibrating brush application for BB Creams and foundation. You’ll capture some of this trend backlash later this Fall when Pop Beauty brings together it’s new CC Cream and Buzzing Beauty Sponge for application.

This trend is actually kinda dying down at the moment (which means the US will probably play catch up with it shortly) but for a second there every Korea brand known to man was pairing up their most popular BB Creams with some type of motorized, vibrating or rotating brush! Particularly BRTC who took almost their entire range of BB Cream and placed them in gift boxes with a rather huge handheld vibrating sponges. For the techie and beauty lover this was kinda a dream come true because seriously there is nothing I love more than beauty gadgetry!

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Dation was kinda one of the first kits that popped onto the scene and started some of this trend. It included Etude House Precious Mineral Dation along with a vibrating sponge.

Take a look at some of my thoughts on the set.
