Physicians Formula Super CC Color Correction + Care CC Compact Cream ($14.95) is a new cream foundation launching for Spring 2015 in two shade selections. I don’t technically like cream foundation but with Winter here it’s always a welcome relief on drier skin so I decided to check this out.
As with all the CC Color Correction products from Physicians Formula it contains color correcting pigments that act to correct uneven skin tones and discolorations while evening out skin tone.
Take a look!
Physicians Formula Super CC Color Correction + Care CC Compact Cream comes housed in a double compartment chunky compact that features the cream foundation on the top and the mirror and sponge applicator located on the top.
Supposedly this contains color correcting pigments including yellow which acts to warm your skin tone, green that eases redness, and pink to brighten and illuminate. Unlike other CC Color Correction products you can’t actually visibly see the color correcting pigments as in past products they appeared as small little dots of color that were spattered throughout the product. Personally I don’t really need to warm my skin up and I don’t have any redness that needs correctly so I find the color correcting pigments aren’t really something that benefit my particularly skin type and tone. I also thought in past products that these pigments appeared as such a small amount that even if you have need of their correcting benefits they might not work for you.
On the upside I think the formula works quite well to ease dullness and create a brighter appearance. I don’t think it’ll necessarily diffuse the look of redness but there’s enough pigment in this formula that it should be able to conceal minor redness.
The formula is a very slick, emollient thinly textured cream foundation that applies easily and blends out just as easily. It’s very hydrating and has a dewy finish that won’t necessarily agree with oily skin types. Coverage ranges from sheer to semi-medium and wears for around three hours if you don’t set with powder but will wear at around six hours when set with powder. The texture is very agreeable to my drier skin as it doesn’t cling to flaky, drier or rougher areas on my cheeks and has a smooth, even appearance. I liked how it brightens up my entire complexion and creates a very flawless base for color cosmetics. I’m not particularly impressed with how emollient it is but it’s a lot less thicker than cream foundations I’ve tried in the past which is a plus as it doesn’t give me a mask-like feel and wears very lightweight and comfortable. I don’t really set my foundation with powder so this is kinda disappointing for me in regards to the shorter wear which is around 3 hours without powder.

If you’re a lover of cream foundations and have drier skin Physicians Formula Super CC Color Correction + Care CC Compact Cream might be a good pick up on sale. However, the shorter wear time without powder makes it a tad disappointing for me.
Anyone try it?
I purchased my Physicians Formula Super CC Color Correction + Care CC Compact Cream at Harmons.
