I decided to review and compare the two cc creams that I own! I have used bb creams since high school, but cc creams is something that is fairly new to the beauty community, or to my life, and I wanted to compare and contrast the ones that I have purchased.
The first one is, The Face Shop Aura Color Control CC Cream in 02. I mentioned this product in my "recent beauty gets" post. Like I said before, it's a good cc cream, but when compared to Lioele, it's pretty average.
As you can see, it looks amazing. It literally blurs my imperfections, hides my acne scars, and brightens my skin after just one layer of the product... But after wearing it around for a few hours, my skin looked awful. It was blotchy, oily, and looked so cakey. As much as I loooove the coverage of this cc cream in pictures, it just does not look good in person.
Next is this Lioele Cera V CC Cream. This was the first cc cream I ever bought and it was worth it! I purchased it for 24$ on ebay, but it is available at cosmetic-love for 19$. (So is The Face Shop one.for 30$! Yikes)
Super brightening! This product is simply wonderful *_* It's so silky and smooth and easy to apply. It might not have maximum full coverage with one layer, but it is definitely buildable without looking cakey. Also, this formula pumps out white, then changes according to your skin color.
Overall these cc creams are both superb. They feel light, have full coverage, brighten the complexion, and match my skin tone. Also, both of them smell wonderful and are pretty compact.
However, I would only repurchase the Lioele because it is more suitable for my oily skin and it's what looks good on me. I have a feeling the Aura CC Cream looked awful because of my oily skin.
Thanks for reading!
