Unlike BB creams, which offer more concealing, anti-aging, and skin correcting benefits, CC creams are meant to "color correct"--such as getting rid of redness and evening out your skin tone. It's not meant to camouflage more serious skin issues, however, so it's a great, lightweight cream to reach for if you already have good skin or don't need a full coverage foundation.
And Now for the Etude House CC Cream
The Etude House Moistfull Super Collagen CC cream is like most CC creams--a very lightweight, easy-to-blend formula that's meant to even out redness and minor skin imperfections. It comes in two shades, both of which are very light, but I opted for the lightest shade, Light Beige. This color is a touch warm-toned (just found out recently I have warm-toned skin!), so it was a perfect match for me. In MAC Foundations, I'm usually between NW15 to NW20, depending on the season.
Here is my bare skin with no foundation or concealer applied. As you can see, my skin isn't perfect (in fact, it's been really bad lately), and I often deal with redness, hormonal acne, and discoloration from old acne scars.
No complains so far :)

On the downside, however, after a few hours it did get a bit too dewy for my liking--so for more long-lasting wear, I'd recommend dusting a touch of powder on top, especially if you have oily skin. This will take care of any excess shine in a jiffy and help the CC cream last longer :)
Overall, I'm totally loving this CC cream...I just love how lightweight it is on my skin, and how well it covers up the redness on my face.
If you want to buy this, it's currently available on cosmetic-love.com for $20.74 for 50mL. Also, hint hint: They offer free shipping, and I got my package in a week, despite their HQ being in Korea :) So they ship super fast. Right now I live in Minnesota.
