I feel like I’ve done a lot of makeup posts lately but I keep buying new stuff. 🙂 Last weekend while Matt and I were at Costco I picked up some Olay CC Cream. It was basically buy one get one free.
I know I’ve raved on here about the Olay Total Effects Cream but Olay is really nailing it! The CC Cream is basically just like the Total Effects as far as consistency goes only I got the light to medium shade which seems to suite my skin tone a little better than the fair to light I have in the Total Effects. My plan is/was to still use the CC cream in with my Clinique Even Better foundation but yesterday I decided that since we were having a lazy day I would just apply the CC Cream. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this stuff. I don’t think it’s really any different than the Total Effects but honestly I love that too.
The CC Cream offered just enough coverage to help even out my skin and then I applied a little Mineral Veil from Bare Minerals and bronzer. Add blush and mascara and I was good to go. This is my “quick” makeup routine. 😉
So where I really wanted to go with this post is to say that I think I like the Olay CC Cream better than the Clinique BB Cream. As I mentioned the BB Cream still felt a little heavier than what I would want from something that’s touted as a “tinted moisturizer.” With that said, buy the CC Cream! Even if you have a regular foundation, I don’t think you can go wrong with the CC Cream. It’s great to add to your foundation or for days when you don’t feel like spending a lot of time applying makeup. (I wonder if I could return the BB Cream?)
