Hello! I’ve got another beauty post coming at you today – pow pow! As summer is beginning to start, I thought I would talk about the SEVENTEEN CC Cream as some of you may be looking at it as a potential replacement for your heavy winter foundations.
Seventeen CC Cream
I can’t remember when exactly I bought the SEVENTEEN CC Cream; knowing myself it was probably when it first came out and I was lured in with some sort of offer! I do remember that the CC cream trend was just beginning when I bought this.
First off, the shade “Light” is not light. It is quite dark – I dread to think what colour Medium is! It does take a lot of blending to tone it down a little, and I would advise of you making sure it is blended down the neck and jawline. If we turn to the product itself now, the cream has an almost whipped, fluffy mousse texture and once applied on the skin it feels quite light; not in any way weighed down or heavy. It also makes your skin feel quite smooth to the touch, but to be honest it doesn’t feel like it’s moisturising my skin, something my skin needs in summer.
Here is my skin wearing the CC Cream. I would say the coverage is light to medium; I personally haven’t built up the coverage as I am scared about turning orange! I personally think it does give a soft matte look to my face. It doesn’t come up in my pictures that well, but there is a faint shimmer in the product which is supposed to give your skin a “glow”.
If the colour had been lighter, and the shimmer removed, I would have loved this product. It’s lightweight, it does offer some coverage and it has a SPF of 25. Sadly, the colour puts me off wearing it as I always feel self conscious of someone turning around and telling me my face and neck are two different colours. I think if SEVENTEEN formulated an “Extra Light” shade they could be on to a real winner.
Have you tried the SEVENTEEN CC Cream? What did you think? If you haven’t tried it, would you give it a go?
