NYX CC Cream

After all the hype over social media I was really keen to try out something from NYX. Obviously the Lip Creams are super popular but the last thing I needed was another lip colour so decided to try out their CC Cream because after using the Garnier BB Cream throughout the summer I'd grown quite bored of it!

I got it in Green because I tend to get a lot of redness around my nose and cheeks so was hoping this would neutralize things a bit under make up. However silly me didn't actually read it properly before I purchased because it actually turns to a "natural" colour once blended in. I say "natural" because what that actually means is a colour suitable only for about 90% of Caucasian people - disappointing, but often the case with BB and CC creams although I expected a little more from NYX as at first glance the colour range looked very good. This is in the shade Light/Medium and I just about got away with it in the summer when I was a bit more tanned but now it's been banished to the depths of my make up box now that I'm as pale as a ghost again. 

If the colour works for you it actually does an ok job of covering up redness and I find it does last all day. It felt incredibly light on the skin and definitely is best applied with fingers. One for more casual/good skin days! At around a tenner it doesn't break the bank but I think you can get better bang for your buck, I would rather buy a green based primer that didn't change colour.  All in all though I won't be repurchasing, but it hasn't put me off NYX - can you recommend any better products from the brand?
