YSL Forever Light Creator CC Creme

Finally!  Someone has released a CC cream which isn't just a BB cream with new packaging!

YSL's latest skin offering is this new CC cream, which really is a colour corrector, and comes under the Forever Light Creator brand.

Lavender, Apricot, Rose
There are three shades - Lavender for neutralising yellow tones and sallowness; Rose for counteracting dullness; and Apricot for adding a warming glow.  Each boast SPF 35 and PA+++ protection, meaning that your skin is protected from both UVA and UVB rays whilst wearing it.

The texture is extremely light and fluid -  they spread easily across the skin and sink in quickly.  I found I needed less than I expected - a small blob applied atop moisturised skin is plenty.  Going overboard will leave you looking a bit odd thanks to the white-ish base.  I wonder whether they'd work on those with deeper skin tones - the white-ish cast to the Lavender and Rose shades might look a bit ashy, and not as natural as intended.

And here I am wearing the Rose shade underneath my normal foundation.  Granted, the light was pretty good when I took this photo, but my skin certainly is bright when I wear it.  For me, it's a toss up between Rose and Lavender for my favourite shade - both make my skin look bright and even, help my foundation apply more smoothly, with the Lavender really helping out when I've not had enough sleep.

The verdict, then?  Lovely, albeit not entirely necessary - if you seek perfect skin, this'll definitely help, but if you're not that fussed for brightness you probably don't need it, particularly given that these babies cost £30 a tube.  Find them now at the YSL Beauty website.
