So we’re pretty much going to stroll down the alphabet when it comes to beauty innovations. We gave you the scoop on BB creams, and even just last week gave the scoop on the new Smashbox CC cream. Now a whole new army of the Color Correction creams are available in beauty aisles.
Not too far in the near future after we publish this post, we’ll be giving you on the scoop on DD creams (disguise & diminish). No seriously…there’s one coming in May.
But back to CC creams—which prime, hydrate, protect, and perfect the skin with SPF coverage. Here’s the latest CC lineup available at Sephora:
AMOREPACIFIC CC Cushion Compact SPF 50 ($60) – This revolutionary formula contains Bamboo Sap to hydrate, encapsulated Green Tea Oil and Green Tea Flower Extract to soothe and cool the skin, and lightweight color pigments to even skin tone, all in a patented Fluid-Capture System Technology that imparts a cushiony light texture. Housed in an elegant compact and applied with a puff, this portable CC Cream leaves skin with a flawless, luminous finish. It is available in four beautiful shades.
Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream ($35) – Neutralize imperfections and add multi-dimensional radiance to skin with this lightweight color correcting cream. This advanced formula contains aloe, sodium hyaluronate, trelahose and sorbitol to instantly hydrate skin, while color correcting optics reflect light to counter-act dullness, redness and sallowness, and a combination of physical and chemical sunscreens provide UVA and UVB protection.
Dr. Jart CC Essence Balm ($42) – Revive your morning complexion or midday makeup with this lightweight, serum-based complete care cream. Infused with Sea Buckthorn Berry Extract, this cream perfectly corrects uneven skin tone and pores, provides intense hydration and leaves skin looking radiant and flawless. What’s more, CC Essence Balm can be applied as the base of your beauty look or as a midday enhancer to combat greasy or dry skin texture.

Enriched with Camu Camu—a potent source of Vitamin C equivalent to 30 oranges, as well as skin-brightening Arbutin, Vitamin E, Glycerin and Hydrolyzed Collagen—skin is left brighter, hydrated, and protected against the sun and free radical attack. It is available in three skin perfecting shades.
Sephora Skin Perfect CC Cream SPF 20 ($26) – Instantly cover minor imperfections while perfecting skin over time with this lightweight blend of corrective color and powerful skincare ingredients.
