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!

Etude House Rose Collection for Fall 2013

Etude House Etude House Rose Flowering Eyes Palette

Etude House Rose Collection for Fall 2013 brings a selection of dusky rose, red, and pink shades together inspired by Sleeping Beauty. The collection launched in Korea on August 26th and rounds up with some lovely new eye pencils, matte glosses, nail polishes, and the most important piece of the collection in my opinion, the Etude House Rose Flowering Eyes Palette.

This I NEED!

Laneige Perfect Pro BB Kit On Trend

Laneige Perfect Pro BB KIT

The biggest hit in Korea in 2012 was the vibrating BB and Laneige Perfect Pro BB Kit is on trend combing the popular BB Cream formula with a vibrating applicator. I think the vibrating BB has died down some but I am seeing a little of it here in the US at the moment as Pop introduced it’s own CC Cream with a separate buzzing applicator you can purchase to apply it. I do wonder if by Spring 2014 the trend might arrive on US shores finally and if so will every brand embrace the same mentality of packaging the two products, BB Cream and sponge, separately. If so I dislike the idea immensely.

Laneige Perfect Pro BB Kit is just one example of a set that features both products at a single price. BRTC also does similar sets which include a single formulation of one of their own popular BB Cream as well as handheld vibrating sponge applicator.

Let’s take a look!
