Let me keep it real with you for a minute… I remember when BB creams and CC creams first started being popular and for the LONGEST time (like, way too long for someone who loves beauty products), I had NO IDEA what in the heck a BB or CC cream was. I mean, I knew it went on your face, but I just had no concept of its actual purpose or what it did.
Embarrassing, I know. Am I the only one that had no idea what they were for a while? No? Well, anyway… moving on.
So, I hopped on the BB cream band wagon last summer and was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked using one in lieu of my normal daily moisturizer. Then, I heard about CC creams and had been wanting to try one for a while… CC, in some circles, stands for “color correcting” or “color control” – and my skin has a habit of getting really red for no apparent reason at all. It’s the Irish blood in me, I tell ya.
The folks at Studio Gear cosmetics sent me their new CC cream to try and I was really interested to give it a shot to see if I’d like it. What I typically like about BB or CC creams is that it gives you just “enough” coverage without being too overdone, but they’re also moisturizing… SO, they’re great to put on when you’re just out and about and don’t have time to do a full face of makeup.
