Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream features "micro encapsulated pigments" that "deliver a fresh dose of color that adapts to your own skin tone, creating the most natural looking coverage. This lightweight, oil free cream is infused with Hydra-Extend technology that provides up to 72 hours of continuous hydration. Skin nourishing and brightening ingredients help to correct and maintain a youthful complexion." This CC Cream is available in three shades, the lighter two are featured in this post. Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream contains 33ml (1.1 fl oz) and sells for $34. The products featured in this post were provided to me by BrandBacker for review. Studio Gear does not test on animals. This CC Cream was made in the USA. Studio Gear products are available via the brand's website and at Ulta.
Linen is a yellow based light to medium shade. Linen oxidizes quite orange on me.
Natural is a neutral tan shade that does not share Linen's oxidization problem.
Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream has pros and cons - the formula is easy to apply and truly moisturizing. However, it offers little to no coverage and could be longer wearing. Studio Gear offers a sad excuse for a shade selection - only medium skin tones will be able to wear this CC Cream. I can only hope Studio Gear expands the color options. I don't recommend this CC Cream, it doesn't do much, not enough to justify the $34 price tag, that's for sure.
