I have heard so many rave about the newly launched Chanel CC Cream and I am lucky to get my husband to pick a tube for me from Changi DFS at SGD62. Chanel CC Cream is retailing in department stores at SGD82. This is my first ever tube of CC cream; I have never tried BB cream either. My base makeup is always either my Avene High Protection Sunscreen or Burberry Velvet Foundation.
I have only been using this CC cream for few days but the finished look has been consistent for these few days and I think it’s fine for me to write the review. Chanel CC cream is only available in one shade 20 Beige. I am MAC NC20 shade and this 20 beige shade match my skintone pretty well.
It’s a white plastic squeezable tube with black cap. I think the packaging is rather dull and looks cheap considering this is retailing at $82. It’s very light and handy to be brought on my daily makeup bag.
The texture is quite thick but it blends very well. I blend the CC cream with my hands. The CC Cream has a very nice smell that’s not too strong. It has a sheer coverage and I don’t think this would be good for covering acne scars or spots. This CC cream provides a matte finish without giving an impression that you’re wearing foundation. It’s matte but it does not make your face looks flat.
Chanel CC cream lasts for 8 hours with me and the best thing of this CC cream is that it does not makes my face oily. Usually my face tends to be oily after 4-5 hours of application but it’s not the case with Chanel CC cream. My face still looks the same even after 6 hours without any touch-ups.
Overall Chanel CC Cream has done a very good job to my skin. What I love the most is this product does not make my skin oily after hours of application. I also love the finish look. My skin looks fresh and it does not look like I am using a foundation.
