Lakme 9 to 5 CC Cream Beige : Review, Swatches, Price

Lakme CC Cream

I have used the BB creams from Garnier, Ponds, Inveda. These are the best bet for everyday use to work. The finish is perfect which gives an even looking skin with moisture.

See it through my Eyes


Lakme has reintroduced the CC cream under the 9 to5 range this time. I have used the original one as well, which is no longer available I guess. Both of these have only two shades. I have always used the “Beige” color.

 When I want to my skin to look flawless and even toned without using a foundation, I use the Lakme CC cream. It is packed in a glossy fuchsia paper outer box with all the details mentioned.  The cc cream is packed in a peachy plastic squeeze tube.

 It has a beautiful fresh fragrance which feels good. The consistency is cream like, soft and fluffy. I take a pea size for my face and neck. I dot it over, spray some MIST and blend it with the hands.

The coverage is medium and gives a beautiful appearance top the face. My skin looks even and flaws diminish easily. It stays on for upto 8 hours. Skin doesn’t look patchy (I use mist) at all. It covers up pimples and dark circles partially. It doesn’t oxidize, neither looks cakey. The finish is beautiful.

I am so dependent on this one, that on my recent holiday come wedding, I wore just this and didn’t carry a foundation. This is one product which made me go without any foundation.
