How to Choose: BB vs. CC Creme

Whether you're wanting a "no-makeup" natural or an all-out glam look, the best products for a perfectly even and smoothed complexion are BB and CC creams. Part skincare, part makeup, they correct the appearance of blemishes and surface imperfections so your skin looks perfectly ready for whatever look you're feeling! But which one should you choose?

And something else...sometimes, you don't even have to! Did you know you can combine them both when needed? 

We're breaking down all you need to know about these tinted creams and just why they're about to become your new beauty essentials!


For high-definition results!

This hi-tech, multi-purpose formula works to correct blemishes, even out skin tone and leave an ultra-natural, luminous finish! 

Our CC Crème illuminates any complexion while moisturizing at the same time.

This pioneering hybrid product combines skincare with makeup and reveals a unique, transforming texture. See the magic in just a few seconds: on contact with the skin, the CC pigments change color and adjust to your skin tone based on your selected shade. Simply dab onto the forehead, cheeks and bridge of the nose, then blend over the face to correct and even out your complexion!

For specific skin concerns like redness or dullness, check our CC EXPERTS:     

CC Red Correct is ideal for fair skin tones that are prone to redness. Dab onto reactive areas before applying the standard CC Crème, or – in the case of widespread redness – use on the entire face as your makeup base. 

CC Dull Correct is ideal for tired, lackluster and dull skin, using violet pigments to counteract yellowish undertones and keeping the complexion golden and lively all year round. Add that boost of summer glow back to your skin! 

Our CC Crèmes boast another added benefit: all are formulated with SPF 25 sunscreen!

If you're looking for a luminous finish, CC Crème is the product for you!  

And if you want an even more flawless looking finish, mix it with a little BB Crème for more moderate coverage!



For matte, velvety, "baby smooth" skin!

BB Crème is the ultimate skin-perfecting formula. It works to even out skin tone, conceal blemishes and provide a peachy-soft appearance.

This beauty essential is a clever combination of skincare and makeup: it melts on the skin, moisturizes your face, and helps to even out and mattify the complexion while giving a non-oily, velvety finish. 

Imperfections appear minimalized and your skin's texture looks refined. The complexion feels smooth and soft to the touch, too.  

But that's not all! BB Crème also offers SPF 20 UV protection. 

If you want a matte, velvety finish, BB Crème is your go-to!  

And if you want an even more perfect finish, combine it with a little CC Crème, for a touch of natural-looking luminosity.



CC Crème

Our CC Crème is available in 3 shades: ClairDoré (or Golden) and Caramel

The "Clair" shade is perfect for fair complexions with pink or beige undertones, while the "Doré" or "Golden" shades (same formula) is ideal for enhancing warmer bronzed or tanned skin. Darker tan to deep shades will perfectly match with Caramel. 

CC Red Correct is ideal for fair skin tones that are prone to redness and CC Dull Correct is perfect for those with more olive/golden undertones looking to give their tired, lackluster skin a boost of luminosity!


BB Crème

BB Crème currently comes in 3 shades: ClairDoré and Caramel.   

If  have very fair to light skin, choose the Clair shade. 

Use the Doré shade if you want to enhance warm tan, medium range skintones. 

If you have a medium to deeply tanned complexion, you'll love our Caramel shade which is also perfect for contouring!
