Hello all,
Few months back, when I came to India, then I got to know about Lakme CC cream which was India's first CC cream launched by Lakme. So, I could not resist to try that out and bought myself one from nykaa.com and used it for a couple of days. Here is the detailed review of this 'Lakme CC Cream'

Product Description: Lakme CC cream is a tinted moisturiser which has goodness of a moisturiser along with concealing benefits of a foundation. This is a multitasking product which gives hydration and sun protection to the skin and conceals minor imperfections by giving an overall natural finish.

Price: Rs 250 for 30 ml.

My experience with Lakme CC Cream:

Packaging: Lakme CC cream comes in a sleek, sturdy and secure tube made up of plastic. The tube is in beige colour with magenta coloured letters and silver cap. Overall packaging looks lovely and is convenient to use because it dispenses just the right amount of product, is fuss free and travel friendly.

Lakme CC cream comes in 2 shades and I bought myself the shade 'Beige' which is lighter of the two. I think the shade 'bronze' would have suited me well because 'Beige' is not the perfect match for my skintone and is way too light for me. However, I make it work by using a slightly darker loose powder on top of it which gives me a better colour match, more coverage and keeps my face oil free for a longer time.

The consistency of Lakme CC cream is medium and texture is creamy. It blends really well on my moisturized face but looks patchy if I use it without a moisturizer underneath. The packaging instructs to use this on the cleansed face but it does not work for me that way. I cleanse and moisturize my face before using it. It might work for oily-skinned people though if they want to skip the moisturizer.

The CC cream from Lakme spreads really easily on my face and feels very smooth like velvet. I blend it with my fingers without putting in much effort and the result is seamless. It evens out my skin-tone and conceals some light spots, blemishes and counteracts redness to some extent. The coverage it gives is light and buildable to some extent. I apply just one coat of it and like to address my flaws with a concealer instead rather than layering the CC cream on.

It has a semi-matt finish and suits my oily-combination skin quite well in summers. I like the way it looks so natural on my skin and feels extremely light weight. It's ideal to do 'no makeup' makeup look if you don't have much to conceal on your face. It adds a subtle glow and brightens up the whole face instantly which is claimed by the brand.

My face stays shine free for good 3-4 hours and after that I need to touch up with loose powder. However the CC cream stays put for 6-7 hours and does not look patchy when wears off. I can confidently use it for a day out without bothering about my base.

Overall, I would say that this is decent product at a very reasonable price that can be an ideal match for oily to combination skinned people who do their make-up in a rush because it takes no time to blend. It needs to be used with a concealer to hide dark spots and set with a powder for longevity and more matte-fying effect. It definitely improves the appearance of the skin, brightens up and protects to some extent. I however would not call it a one-in-all sort of product because it works well only with concealer, powder and a sunscreen/moisturizer. The shade range is the biggest negative about this product as there are only two and people with medium skin tone will not get a good match.

Given below are some hits and misses about Lakme CC Cream:

Yays':
  1. Affordable and easily available 
  2. Fuss-free and convenient packaging
  3. Light weight and natural finish
  4. Blends easily and seamlessly
  5. Lasting power is decent
  6. Brightens up and freshens up the whole look
  7. Works great as a light base underneath makeup
  8. Contains SPF 20
  9. Light coverage which can be built up 
  10. Helps to conceal redness and evens out skintone to some extent
Nays':
  1. Not enough moisturizing especially for dry skin
  2. SPF not enough
  3. More shades needed to be added to suit a variety of skintones
'Go for it' or 'No for it':
It is very affordable everyday multitasking cream that hydrates , evens out and protects the skin to some extent. It is easy to use and gives a natural finish. It works ideally as a light weight make up base. However you need to use a sunscreen and moisturizer for optimum protection of the skin and a powder for longevity and matte-effect along with this cream. I would recommend it if you can get your shade so go for it.

BFE Rating: 3.75/5
