Lakme | Complexion Care (CC) Cream

Lakme CC Cream - Beige
Ever since their reinvention a few years back, Lakme has brought in some amazing products in their collection. I hauled back on some goodies but never got around to reviewing them so here goes. Presenting Lakme's answer to quick, easy daily makeup: their very own Complexion Care cream providing sheer coverage.

Complexion Care cream claims to moisturize and refresh while giving a unified glow to the skin. From instant brightening, diffusion of dark spots, blending uneven skin tone to an SPF of 20, this one has it all. The texture is creamy, easy to blend and does not streak. 

The only problem? Only 2 shades!

I picked the shade Beige, the lighter one, and although I'm generally in a light-medium skin tone category, I still feel I want more pink/yellow undertones in this. Just any undertone, please! It blends out evenly onto my skin but sucks in all of my natural color; kind of makes me look bland and just "white n bright". Whereas in comparison, the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream (which I love to bits!) is like second skin to me. This does not mean Lakme loses the battle. I want more shades, currently they only offer 2. Though the idea of a CC cream is to blend imperfections and make skin glow rather than be a full coverage foundation, there still needs some variety in terms of available colors as not every skin tone will match within their limited 2 shade range. Just my opinion!

Priced at a reasonable INR 265, this is a great pick for every day use provided it matches to your skin tone. For me it was a dud only because of the blah-ness of the shade, otherwise it is a near-perfect example of an "everyday skin stylist"!
