Hope Girl CC Cream

I recently got this Hope Girl Nude Skin Color Control Cream when purchasing the Hope Girl Memebox! Being a rather huge fan of color changing CC Creams I was excited to try this out and the price seems to retail at around $26 and I only paid $29 something for the Memebox which also included four other full size Hope Girl products so it worked out to a very nice deal!

I’m a HUGE fan of Tony Moly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream and the Hope Girl Nude Skin Color Control Cream does remind me of that on some level so I was quite pleased with it’s performance.

Have a look!

Hope Girl Nude Skin Color Control Cream is formulated with an SPF 30 and comes housed in leopard print brown pump bottle. The formula can be used as a primer for bb cream or foundations OR you can use it on its own for a “Nude Skin” finish. I use it alone in all honesty because I like products like this that give me a my skin but better appearance! If you have fairly good skin and perhaps suffer from uneven skin tone, redness, or darkness this will brighten, refine, and even skin tone while giving a lightweight, natural finish to skin. Those who desire more coverage will want to follow up with foundation or BB Cream to conceal acne, blemishes, major darkness, etc….

This has a lighter creamy texture and starts out white in color. It adjusts as you apply since it has color capsules that break apart. The color goes from white to a very fair shade of creamy beige with a pink undertone. The color worried me at first as I thought it would like pasty or even chalky on my complexion. But it’s actually quite sheer so it has just enough coverage to brighten my skin up and even my skin tone without looking unnatural. The creamy texture sets to a smooth, slightly satiny finish that doesn’t accentuate drier areas of my face and even conceals the visible pores on my nose easily enough when used in conjunction primer. I think the brightness I’m speaking about really translates well in my swatches below!

I think the texture is slightly lighter, less creamy, and less pigmented that the Tony Moly formula. I like how sheer it is but that won’t be the case for everyone. I have fairly good skin without blemishes or acne problems. However, I have drier, duller skin that looks lackluster and this is the perfect way to brighten it up and create a nice, even canvas for my makeup!

The color won’t work for everyone but a majority of skin tones can take advantage of it as a primer of sorts to add brightness and you can of course, add your own base to keep pastiness at bay if it does crop up!

Overall, Hope Girl Nude Skin Color Control Cream is an excellent pick up for those that want light, natural coverage that brightens skin and gives it a “my skin but better” appearance! This enhances my own natural skin and gives it a natural, evenly toned look while adding a nice healthy brightening!
