There are so many new foundation formulas this season. Yet I love a good CC Cream for my everyday look during spring summertime to give me good coverage + sun protection. I do have a couple of must-have CC Cream formulas that do a great job for me but I really wanted to start testing Chanel beauty products and I found the Complete Correction CC CREAM would be a good start.
I am new to Chanel beauty products, I definitely can’t compare the formula with older or other complexion products. The Complete Correction CC CREAM is a lightweight fluid base that smooths out skin with a blurring effect. It offers medium coverage that looks really natural and blends very well on the skin, leaving skin with a nice dewy finish. The lasting power is quite good but it does require to set with a little powder. This set more into skincare products than make up for its skincare benefit offerings.
It applies well with a flat brush for more coverage. I was matched in the shade 30 Beige which I find matches my skin perfectly. I also found there isn’t huge oxidation with this base so you can pick the closest match to your skin. Its formulated with Broad Spectrum SPF 50. It applies well on top of lightweight formulas like a serum but not over cream, if you prepare your skin for makeup I would suggest either give your skincare products a good time to absorb before applying this formula or just apply right after your serum and this CC Cream definitely keeps up with your skin’s hydration levels.
The formula is slightly high in alcohol levels, I can smell the fragrance but I was happy it didn’t irritate my skin. I do reapply and touch up my CC Cream especially when I wear outside so the packaging is quite compact which makes it easy to carry around in your on-the-go makeup bag.
Here are comparison swatches of the CC Creams I love on my skin. I find in terms of texture and hold the Chanel Complete Correction holds better than another lightweight CC Cream’s yet the It Cosmetics CC Cream has more hold than all of them.
IT COSMETICS CC+ Cream with SPF 50+
LAURA MERCIER Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30
ESTEE LAUDER Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing Foundation SPF 45
CHANEL Complete Correction CC Cream SPF 30
Overall it has performed very well on my skin. I am happy with how it feels on skin + a positive impression on Chanel Beauty, especially on their complexion products. Although I still feel the concentration of the alcohol is there I am happy it didn’t irritate my skin. It’s a solid A+ for me especially for summer days where I like coverage and SPF. There are few more new launches that I have my eyes on like Huda Beauty’s GLoWish, BareMineral’s Mini Complexion + Laura Mercier’s New Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer which I am still in the process of trying out.
You can find the Chanel Complete Correction CC CREAM available at Chanel.com and all Chanel counters. If you have tried this formula, let me know what you think?
