I’m all about the CC Creams right now, I love the feel of them on my skin and how easy they are to work with. The Lancome City Miracle CC Cream has been a staple in my Make-up bag for the past week and I have to admit I didnt think it was going to be. I was lucky enough to receive all three shades from the CC range which are 01 Peach, 02 Apricot and 03 Golden, I wanted to share these swatches with you because when I first gave them a swatch myself I was quite surprised to see how dark the shades were. I was actually expecting them to be too light for my skin but it was quite the opposite, despite the shade range being quite dark I thought I’d give the lightest shade 01 Peach a go and it actually is the perfect match for me, once applied to the skin it seemed to neutralise and the colour seemed to blend straight in. Peach adds a slight glow to my face without making me look orange, it gives a great amount of cover and it leaves my skin feeling moisturised and nourished.
The City Miracle CC creams includes SPF 50 which is absolutely amazing, I haven’t come across a CC cream with such high SPF in it yet so I was delighted to see that. As you know it’s so important to protect your skin at all times so having this is an added bonus. I get a lot of friends asking me what sort of products they could wear to the beach to create a ‘no make-up’ make-up look and I’d highly recommend this. As mentioned it adds a gorgeous radiant glow to your face without looking orange, the finish is shine-free but is not drying at all and it lasts really well too.
Overall I have really been enjoying the Lancome City Miracle CC Cream, if your after a radiant look with a nice amount of cover with that all important SPF then I’d highly recommend giving it a go. Just to recap, if your going to buy one of these lovely CC Creams then I’d go a shade or two lighter than your usual CC cream because they are quite dark, I probably wouldn’t recommend for really fair skin, but if you like a little bit of fake tan or are naturally tanned then definitely give the darker shades a go.
