Review of Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream and Experience
Lakme Colour Transform cream is package in white colored tube which has 2 shades as I said. I liked the tube and this is very easy to carry and keep. This is really good in the packaging as you can keep this in your bag to use when you like.
This Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream is cream in color with dark brown granules. These brown granules are the pigmented granules. They will impart the color to the cream when applied. So, if you are wondering what exactly is happening with this cream, then let me explain. First off all while you are using this on your face, the white cream will gets mixed with the tiny granules of the skin color pigment hence the color which will resemble a sheer tinted moisturizer will come.
How to use this Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream
To apply this cream, cleanse your skin and make sure that the face is clean. Then, I will take around a pea sized amount of this cream. I will dot this cream on my face on the areas like chin, forehead, cheeks and one dot on the nose. I will then blend with my finger tips to make the product seamlessly blend on my face. This cream also gets applied very nice. I mean to say, we have come across tinted moisturizers, BB creams etc which gets a bit difficult to blend just like the foundations. But you can use this like a regular cream. No extra skills required. So, even my mom can try this easily. In fact, she used it and liked that this is very quick and easy to use.
Swatches of Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream
This Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream gives a subtle glow on the skin but not the greasiness. My face appears a bit brighter and even toned. This is due to the pigment in this cream. For my skin type, Beige is the one that suits me the most. My skin tone is fair and skin type is oily combination skin. So, for my skin type, I liked that this does not give greasiness but some moisturization minus the oiliness. The whitish cream that we see in the tube actually transforms in a skin colored cream and hence there will not be any white casts before using this Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream I was thinking that it may not leave white cast or ashynes on my face.
The cream only gives a mild coverage and therefore if you are thinking of these as a spot covering crams then it will not work. For sheer coverage, this will work.
I can also use this CC cream on my eye lids to help my eyelids get even toned or before applying the eye shadow. This actually helps to make the eye shadow stick longer on the eyelids. I feel that this is a multipurpose product.
There are 2 shades of this Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream i.e. Beige and bronze. Honestly, I feel that since the color is not much in these creams, they will suits all the Indian skin complexions, but I think there should have been one more shade for the dusky skinned girls. Like there can be Beige, bronze and caramel which can suit well for the darker skinned girls.
