Bourjois 123 Perfect Color Correcting CC Cream 31 Ivory Review
By Contributor: Agnirupa
Do I see the oil droplets trickling down your faces already. Hohoho summer is here..oh lol no that was actually a mirror I was peeking into. Yesss its hot and humid already and my skin is just starting to get disobedient. My MAC bb cream is too hydrating right now and I have gone through my rest. Foundations I can’t bear to wear in this heat! Phir? Lisa Eldridge had raved about the new bourjois 123 cc cream so much in a video that when I came across it in lifestyle I pounced on it and got the shade 31 ivory for myself.
Bourjois Claims: The next generation of foundation! Combining -THE COLOUR CORRECTION OF A FOUNDATION + THE SKINCARE ACTION OF A CREAM. Thanks to its 3 colour correcting pigments that smooth away imperfections –
APRICOT pigments > anti-fatigue | GREEN pigments > anti-redness | WHITE pigments > anti-dark spots
24 hr hydration, SPF 15. Result: luminous complexion & flawless skin in one step.
The bourjois CC cream comes in such a cute convenient plastic tube with a nozzle mouth. Very sleek, easy to carry and dispense.
The texture is very very nice and light, not at all heavy or oily and can be applied very smoothly and easily. The shade Ivory seemed to be too white for me at first but once I applied- voila! It adapted to my skin like magic and behaved like my second skin. It made my face look clean and bright, it covered all minor redness and blemishes and even got rid of my dark circles to an extent! I purposely dabbed it on top of my angry new red pimple and yess the green pigment worked. My pimple was not noticeable anymore!
I looked like I had no layer on my face at all and even after the entire day there was no oil on face to speak of. My t-zone had just started to look shiny when I came home but that’s easily solved by dabbing a powder sponge. It did not melt away by sweat or oxidize and lasted all through! Very impressed.

It comes with SPF15 which is 1 of the major positive points as I never step out without sunscreen. So it means in this humid heat I wont have to layer this up with anything else. The smell is slightly fruity and nice and fades within a few minutes of application.
