Contouring & Cocktails with Makeup Artist Karl Giant

Makeup manufacturers and beauty gurus have declared BB creams so last year. But what new product could possible take their place? The CC cream, of course.

While BB stands for “beauty balm,” CC is short for “Color Control” and is considered an improved and refined version of Korea’s innovative, life-changing BB cream that makeup artists raved about.

The primary difference between BB and CC cream is that the latter focuses more on color correction and concealing. It still has the lightness we love about BB creams, but is a bit more dense to help cover fine lines and wrinkles while evening out the skin’s pigmentation. CC creams still moisturize, reduce pore size and protect skin from the elements just as their BB cousin does.

As we go further into the new year, CC creams will become more widely available. At the moment, however, you can find the product at both drug and department stores in various price categories.

For example, Olay’s Total Effects CC Tone Correcting Moisturizer, a forerunner in the CC Cream craze, has been a hit since its fall 2012 debut. Another early, mid-end CC cream comes from Juice, who calls their version the Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream.


Wei East — affordable sister to Wei Beauty — is one of my personally favorite brands, so I’m delighted to see they’ve also hopped aboard the CC train. Their recently launched CC cream, dubbed the “Ideal Skin Perfect,” promises an effortless, perfectly blended finish with every use.

Brands such as Chanel, Smashbox, Luisdina and Clinique have also launched their own CC creams. And just like all the makeup lovers out there, I can’t wait to see what other brands bring to the makeup table in the coming months.

So — what’s your take on the CC cream? Are you eager to test out this new product, or will you clutch tightly to your BB creams and never let go? We’re eager to hear your thoughts, so share them with us in the comment section below.

When beauty products double up their duties

25 October 2010

We at stand for beauty products that deliver, without (unnecessarily) breaking your wallet. Let’s face it. We women do need to invest time and money to make us look pretty. It’s not always easy to find the time to do it. When we read about this new generation of hybrid products, that make a splash successfully multitasking their tasks; we literally ran to our laptops to report. You’ve heard about the tinted moisturizers – probably most of you have one already (guilty as charged). But have you heard about the age-reverse eye shadow primers?

These are just a few of the items featured in the press recently. And the ones, we think, would appeal to you the most.

SMASHBOXLash Revival Treatment and Conditioner features a follicle-stimulating peptide-enhanced serum on one end and a post-treatment lash conditioner at the other end. It can be used also on the brows to stimulate growth.
