And it’s Fridayyyyyyy! I’m in total shutdown and dressdown mode, so I’m wearing the lightweight Tony Moly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream – too bad for those who have to see my face today, since it doesn’t have much coverage. muahahaha. I just don’t wanna spend too much time removing my makeup when I get home later. It’s gonna be wipe, cleanse, dry and hop into bed, baybeh!
Here’s another member of my CC cream army 😀 I saw the advertisement whilst I was in Ceci Hair Salon doing my hair, and I was totally sold.
- The packaging is sleek – a metal (?) can with a pump dispenser.
- It feels slightly more luxe than other plasticky tubes.
- There are no micro granules like the Etude House CC cream and Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream had.
- Perhaps that explains the lack of colour-changing abilities – instead of blending into beige or nude, it feels like it’s just a moisturiser / suncream that is absorbed by my skin.
- Check out the coverage – or lack thereof. You can distinctly see my dark eye circles and even the blemishes on my chin and cheek caused by the Laneige Original Essence.
- My face does feel slightly more moisturised and plumped up after applying this though.
- The dewy coverage wears off after a bit (changing into a normal matte finish), and after 2 hours of application, it’s more or less all gone.
If I had to do a comparison chart of the CC creams I’ve tried so far (in terms of overall awesomeness), it’ll be:
- Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream
- Espoir Bare Skin Complexion Cream CC Cream
- Etude House Correct & Care CC Cream
- This Tony Moly Pure Luminous Aura CC Cream
I wouldn’t really classify this as a CC cream – it’s more of a moisturiser or a base / primer. If you’ve got flawless skin, this would be good for you.
