We are slowly moving down the alphabet chain and it seems CC Creams are starting to make their presence known. I had recently heard about it only to realize that some brands have been releasing CC Creams for perhaps a good year now and only recently has this name been surfacing quite regularly on sites.
CC Creams, otherwise known as Color Control Cream, is suppose to be an improved version of the BB offering.

Musings of A Muse did a very informative introduction about them and you can hop over here to read all about it because I am not going to reiterate eveything here.
The main gist is that CC Creams boasts to be lighter in texture (compared to BB Creams), feel non-oily on, offer a higher level of coverage, added SPF for sun protection while still encompassing the nutritious pro-skin benefits (such as fighting wrinkles, pigmentation etc) of a BB Cream.
While searching up about it I got pretty intrigued with how it would feel on the skin as another tumblr mention described it to bubble and form water dropletson the skin (Reminds me vaguely of the L'EGERE one.
Though I am also quite amused at where this makeup revolution is going. Will we have ZZ Creams in a few years to come? I joke...
Nonetheless, I predict more brands will pick up on this and I sure do welcome CC Creams with open arms and a bare face. Already available in korean cosmetic labels, they are said to be trotting over to the UK beauty industry as well.
A little closer to home, Rachel K Cosmetics has actually launched a CC Cream last year, way ahead of this talk, and you can read more on their Facebook Note, along with Atelier Gal's swatches (and comparison to BB) here.
Here are some other CC Creams that are available, somewhere out there....

And an upcoming one from a familiar brand.... Chanel CC Cream!

I've not tried a CC Cream (aside from a tester of Rachel K but I was under the illustion it was a BB Cream) on myself so I can't comment on them but they have been receiving good response from sites and that has certainly aroused my interest in them.
While we do have the Rachel K one readily available, I am looking towards the more random brand Korean and Chinese brand offerings. I'm sure like with the BB phenomenon most brands will have their own take and twist to CC Creams.
So... Thoughts on CC Creams - Tried them? Looking forward to them? or think it's too much?
Thanks for reading!
