Review: Hard Candy CC Correction Creme in Fair

Hey everyone! I posted a haul a little over a week ago, and this Hard Candy CC Correction Creme in Fair is one of the products I had bought. Someone asked if I could do a review so since I've had the chance to try this out a handful of times, I figured it was time for my reivew! 

Anyways, this product claims to have 5 Flawless Results in 1:
- Color corrects skin tone by blurring blemishes, discolorations and dark spots
- Neutralizes undertone with unique light reflecting optical pearls
- Brightens complexion with glowing airbrushed finish
- Evens skin texture for a smooth natural appearance
- Oil free creme moisturizes skin all day without clogging pores

You get 1.5 ounces in this bottle, which is pretty generous considering this only costs $8 at Walmart. I have to say that I think the packaging is pretty cute. I love the pink heart on the box and tube, but pink is my favorite color so I may be biased. 

Now these next few pictures are the stages of me putting on this CC cream, so I apologize if there are too many!

These pictures are of my skin freshly cleansed and moisturized with no makeup on at all. I had also put on sunblock as well. Pardon my tired looking face, I was doing this in the morning before work! Also, the bottom side picture is just to show that I had a blemish near my chin, so we'll see if this CC cream covers it up!

These three pictures are after I put on one layer with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. You can probably notice that my skin looks a bit more even, but I feel it's a tad too orange. I had to really blend it in my skin to make it not look like too much of an oompa loompa. Also, it didn't cover the blemish I had either.

These pictures are of my completed makeup look. I did use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder on top of this CC cream, which you can tell in the bottom picture has helped with the blemish I have. I also look alot less orange here than I do in the above pictures.

I wanted to take pictures after I had gotten home from my workday, so I'm sorry I look so bad! Anyways, you can probably tell that I'm really shiny, but that's normal for me. I didn't use any blotting papers either since I was testing this out. My skin color looks normal, not orange and it doesn't look faded. However, in person I did look a bit different. Close up in a mirror there were a few splotches of product on my forehead and chin. Also, the blemish near my chin looks alot better in the bottom photo. I must get lucky, my zits seem to dry up and go away rather quickly.

Overall, this isn't terrible. I will say if you have oily skin like me, use a setting powder and blot during the day, or just stay away from this if that's too much hassle. If you have normal/combination to dry skin, this should work fine. It doesn't have very good coverage, so if you have alot of redness, blemishes or pigmentation, this won't cover a thing. All I noticed was it evened out my skintone a bit, but it was slightly orange so you do have to blend it well. It hasn't broken me out either which is great. I don't think this works miracles by any means, but it may work for you if you have nice skin and want it a bit more even.

Have any of you tried this CC cream?
