What do you get when BB Cream and Color Correcting Primer elope and have a child? A CC Cream. :D
There's so much science and sorcery surrounding this brand new makeup innovation but simply put, it's a hybrid of BB Creams and Color Correcting Primers to me-that's it! But I'm quoting what I wrote in my Beauty Forecast For 2013 so you guys would have a better understanding of what a CC Cream is:
CC Cream means Color Correction or Complexion Correction Cream. It has been developed in Japan sometime in 2011, and is now spreading like wildfire across the globe.
It is designed to retain the benefits of BB Cream, but with even better coverage, overall feel, and staying power-it can also conceal and correct skin discolorations. The big benefit of CC Cream is it can REPAIR existing skin problems—it’s something that good ol’ BB Cream can’t do as it is mainly a preventive product. Also, BB Cream is a more general type of skin care- based makeup, whereas CC Cream is more specific, with Aging as its primary concern.
If I'm not mistaken, Snoe is the first local makeup brand that has released their own version of the CC Cream. My, you gotta admire the brand for keeping up with the trends! Anyway, Parallel Pigments CC Cream comes in 4 shades: Green- tames redness Wheat- brightens up dull skin Lavender- brightens sallow skin Honey- covers bluish and purplish veins. Not only that, these CC creams are also packed with a ton of ingredients that may help treat existing skin conditions. Check it out:

SNOE PARALLEL PIGMENTS CC CREAM IN LAVENDER IN DETAIL
I got Lavender because I figured that it would help dilute some of my too yellow and dark foundations. I also use it to spot conceal some marks (most especially reddish ones) along with my ArtDeco Camouflage Cream.
Packaging is small and handy, and it comes with a doe foot applicator which makes it easier for you to navigate on the tighter corners of your face. To cover bigger areas, lay the applicator flat on your face and spread across your skin gently and carefully. I only use my fingers to blend the product.
Is it safe for eye use?
Methinks yes, it is. It's just like regular liquid bases that you use all over your face to unify your skin tone.
Texture is smooth, and consistency is semi- runny: It spreads easily and uniformly. It has a tasty banana scent, although it's a little strong at first and may put off some people who are sensitive to fragrances. The scent goes away after a few minutes so it's not really a problem for me.

SNOE PARALLEL PIGMENTS CC CREAM IN LAVENDER IN ACTION
One layer of Parallel CC Cream in Lavender
It's quite sheer, but it does make a difference on the tone of my skin. It has managed to cover some of my light post- acne marks on its own, but not the darker ones. Coverage is buildable, it's lightweight, and dries to a semi- matte finish. It is also long-wearing, and helps prolong makeup wear. I only apply one layer because I find that it has a tendency to affect the shade of my foundation.
In comparison with other products: If compared with BB Creams, a CC Cream is more lightweight and non- goopy. But unlike BB Creams, you can't wear it on its own, unless we see an improvement on the shade range of CC Creams in the upcoming months. Regarding the skin repairing effects, I can't say anything on that yet because I'm only on my second week of usage. Like in all skin care or skin care- based makeup products, it will really take time before you see its promise, and consistency is key.
To whom do I recommend it to? To people who are looking for a more beneficial color- correcting primer, people with minor skin discolorations, and those who want to try CC Creams. It's affordable and it does a pretty good job. This is an exciting product, and I want to try the CC Cream versions of other brands!
