Chanel CC Cream Review

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. Β 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.

Lasting Power:

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.

Final Thought:

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.

      Hi Chris,
      Honestly I don’t have too much problem with my skin tone but from the reviews I read online, many people said Chanel CC cream improves the skintone πŸ™‚

    How interesting! I did wonder what the formula was going to be like. It looks like a good one, but it’s a shame that it only comes in one shade!

    Interesting! I’ve been using BB creams, but CC cream is new to me.. I love Chanel’s Perfect Lumiere foundation, so I might check this out at DFS, but I’m a little worried about the shade selection as I’m a NC30..

  6. Jacqueline says:

    I wished they made colours suitable for darker skin tones because I so wanted to try this. So unfair!

  7. Sunny says:

    Thanks for the review, Meryl! I’ve been waiting to read more reviews about this, but I have no idea when/if it will be available here. Glad your experience with it is so positive!

    Chanel CC cream looks really pretty on you!! Your skin is flawless. I’m wondering if they also come in medium shades. Do you happen to know?

  9. That looks beautiful on you, Meryl! And it matches you skin really well. I have a similar skin tone so I am really wanting to try this one now. I had heard it was a bit too peachy but this actually look great on you!
