Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream Review, Swatches

As you all know me by now I don't prefer using base makeup on an everyday basis and I definitely don't use a foundation everyday. But there are days when I feel like giving some extra coverage to my face and really don't want to go for a foundation. I love using BB or CC creams on those days rather than a tinted moisturizer as these creams do a lot better job at getting me the sheer coverage I love :)
Today's review is going to be about my favourite CC cream in the market that works good for me - Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream in the shade bronze.

My Views On Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream

I have tried a bunch of BB creams but this was the first CC cream I tried and I suddenly fell in love with it. It comes in two different sizes and I love picking the smaller one always because it's quite handy and easy to grab on the go! It comes in a rose gold tube packaging housed inside a rose gold carton box with a whole vintage-y look - I so love it :)
The tube has a tiny hole to dispense the product and there is absolute control in product dispersion - so no worries about product wastage.

The Lakme 9 to 5 CC Cream has a mousse kind of texture and it spreads well quickly and easily. It blends like a charm and gives sheer coverage. It really does even out the complexion giving that blurred look to skin and also instantly brightens up your face if you don't have much pigmentation to hide. If you have stubborn dark circles or pigmentation, dark spots then this definitely wouldn't give you flawless looking skin. It mattifies skin and gives it an even toned appearance. It can be built up a bit but more product would make you appear ghostly! It does oxidize after application and gives a white cast but if you balance out your face with makeup then this wouldn't give you a made-up look.

It comes in only 2 shades - beige and bronze and is totally useless if you have very light or very dark skin tone. I hate to admit Lakme being an Indian company has to improve a lot in this department and bring in more shades that would suit Indian skintones.

Overall it's a perfect base for everyday wear that can brighten up your skin and a great choice for this price. It can easily replace your tinted moisturizer giving you sheer coverage, mattified skin and a flawless appearance (provided you don't hav much skin issues). It definitely can't replace your foundation or concealer and it most definitely can't be your best bet if you have dark circles, pigmentation, dark spots or pimples. I like using it on days when I don't feel like wearing much makeup and will repurchase it until I find a good alternative :)
Definitely recommend you to try it atleast once if you like using BB\CC creams!
