Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream Review - Bronze

Lakme is one brand which launches products which perfectly suit my skin tone. All their foundations and creams have that light yellow hue to them which suits Indian skin very well. This is the reason I love Lakme so much, especially when it comes to foundations and BB/CC creams. But I really wish they had launched more shades to this range too. Read on to know more about this unique 'color transform' cream.

Price and Quantity: INR 325 for 30g


The product comes in a very pretty beige tube with ombre stickers at the front and back which have all the details and directions written on them. The cap is a golden tight screw in which looks cute against the ombre of the tube. The packaging is very light weight and travel friendly.

Shades Available: 

The Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream comes in just two shades - Beige and Bronze.


The fragrance is very pleasant.. yummy!

My Experience With the Lakme 9 To 5 CC Color Transform Cream:

I totally love the regular Lakme CC cream but it didn't have a good staying power so I was eager to try out this Lakme 9 to 5 CC cream which came with a promise to last long and a unique feature of color transformation. My first thought on using this cream was that - 'Darn! I have chosen the wrong shade!' as I feel this Lakme 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream in Bronze doesn't do much for my medium to fair skin tone.

The texture of the cream is amazing and it blends into the skin seamlessly giving a dewy finish. The fragrance is just yum and I love the way the color of the cream transforms from white to a creamy beige after blending in.

I am not happy with the coverage though as it is very sheer and I feel the regular CC cream from Lakme gives far better coverage and finish too.

Overall, it's a nice cream for daily wear and office wear. It has a hydrating formula which is perfect for Dry and combination skin types.  If you like light weight creams for everyday wear with a nice fragrance and good sunscreen - all in one, then you should go grab this!
