Heya everyone, Today I am going to review the latest launch from Lakme which is from their 9 to 5 range known as Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color transform cream in the shade Bronze. I was never a big fan of cc or bb creams. I am person who prefers medium to full coverage. But as I ran out of my original Lakme cc cream, recently I decided to buy a new CC cream and ended up purchasing the CC Color Transform cream by Lakme. So If you are interested in knowing more about this product please keep on reading the Lakme 9 To 5 Color Transform CC Cream Review, Swatches. If you have already used this product, please let me know your thoughts as well in the comments section.

In Detail Lakme 9 To 5 Color Transform CC Cream Review, Swatches and My Experience
The Lakme cc color transform cream comes in a bright pink outer cardboard packaging. It has all the basic product information on top of it such as claims, ingredients, usage details, price etc. On opening the box there is a very sleek peach and rosy gold tube inside. It’s basically a squeeze tube with silver cap on top of it. The nozzle of the tube is very small hence it dispenses a right amount of product. I really like the packaging of the lakme 9 to5 cc color transform cream. It’s very sleek, handy as well as travel friendly.
Lakme has two sizes to offer in this cc transforming cream. One is a small one which is a 9 grams of product for Rs. 115/- and the 30 grams of product is for Rs. 325/-. So I really love that lakme came up with a travel size as well as full size product. Hence one can try a travel size product first and then buy the full size.
Coming on to the shade selection lakme has two shades to offer in this collection one is beige for wheatish to fair skin tones and other one is bronze for medium to dark complexion. Really disappointed with lakme for limited shade selection. I wish they add some more shades in this range.
I bought the shade bronze which is suitable for people with medium to dark skin tones (I am MAC NC42). When I swatched both the shades in the counter I was so scared to buy this product as it looked white on my hands. I just felt that if I apply this on my face I may end up looking like a ghost (lol). But the SA at the lakme counter insisted and said a that this is better than the original lakme cc cream. The shade bronze will suit maximum number of Indian skin tones. But beauties with deeper complexion than mine won’t be able to find an appropriate shade in this range.
The texture of the lakme 9 to 5 cc color transform cream is bit on the thicker side, but blends beautifully and easily into my skin. On applying this cc transform cream, it instantly brightened my face so well. I felt for a minute as if I applied a fairness cream but after a minute or so it just looked like my skin but better. At that moment I fell in love with this product.
This is so good for a “no makeup makeup look”. It is very lightweight and breathable cc cream. I like to use this cc color transform cream on daily basis as its very lightweight on the skin and evens out my skin tone. This cc cream provides sheer coverage. It won’t hide any marks or blemishes at all. Therefore you may need a separate concealer underneath.
Coming on to the staying power of the new lakme 9 to 5 cc transform cream in shade Bronze. This cream stayed on my combination to oily skin for 2-3 hours after that my skin started getting oily around my t-zone, but touching it up with a compact extended the wear time of the product by 4-5 hours maximum.

Do I Recommend Lakme 9 To 5 Color Transform CC Cream?
Well this is a good cream and I like it. But I don’t think I will be buying this again as it has almost no coverage. Hence I would prefer to go for the older original Lakme CC cream which had a pretty decent coverage. But if you do not need much coverage and are just looking for something which would brighten up your skin and look natural, then you may for sure check out the New Lakme CC colour transform cream.
1) It’s good to use on daily basis when you want no makeup makeup look.
2) To increase the wear time of the product use primer underneath your cream and then after applying the cream top it up with a bit of compact.
3) This cc cream won’t hide marks and blemishes so for that use a separate concealer before applying the cc cream.
4) MAC NC42+ skin tones may find is difficult to work with this cream.
