CC Who?

If I'm being totally honest here, I haven't bought in to the whole BB and CC cream business. For the longest time, I didn't even know what they were. I really didn't give them a second thought. It was almost like I was ignoring them because I love my Marc Jacobs Genius Gel so much. But, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to take the plunge. I skipped right over the BB creams and went straight for a CC. On recommendation from my lovely Mama, who seems to be telling me about a lot of cool stuff these days, I gave this CC cream a try. 

I started out wearing it on boat days. Those are days that I want nice coverage with an SPF but not that caky makeup feeling. I tried the Light/Medium color and I gotta tell ya, it is a beautiful color and one I can most likely wear year round. 

Typically I apply liquid foundation with a foundation brush but this one I just used my fingers. I didn't feel like I had to use a lot of this either, definitely a plus. Did I mention it's organic? Bonus!

By the end of the day, I still felt like I had great coverage and I wasn't overly dry or oily. It seriously didn't move all day. That's probably my biggest complaint with the Genius Gel. When it's hot and humid, it slides and by the end of the work day, my coverage is definitely fading. And, it's right at 50 bucks. This CC cream weighs in at 15 bucks a pop, another point in the win column. So let's break it down...

Affordable: Check
Provides Good Coverage: Check
Contains SPF: Check
Organic: BONUS!
Not dry or oily: Check

This is a winner, ladies! Another trusted drug store product! I give this product an A+ in my book. Don't get me wrong, I'm not throwing in the towel on my Genius Gel Foundation. But, it's always good to have a second option, don't you agree? 

What's important to you in a CC cream? Have you given this one a try? What are your thoughts?
