Review: Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream*

Hi Ladies! 
I was given the opportunity to receive a test sample of Studio Gear's new Hydrating CC Cream for review. For those of you unfamiliar with Studio Gear Cosmetics, here is a little information about the company:
"Founded by industry veterans Steve Rohr and John Avolio, Studio Gear Cosmetics is a prestigous cosmetics brand featuring a full collection of professional makeup brushes, revolutionalizing complexion formulas, and a wide selection of color products for the eyes, cheeks, and lips. Since 1996, Studio Gear has been on set at hundreds of professional photo shoots, in the beauty departments of Bloomingdales, Macy's, Dillard's, HSN and ULTA, and also in the everyday woman's makeup bag. This is a line created true to the concept that every woman deserves professional, high quality cosmetics at a reasonable price."

The Hydrating CC Cream comes in three shades: Linen, Natural, and Wheat.

Here is what is said about the product on the Studio Gear Website:

"Hydrating CC Cream transforms and enhances your complexion in an incredibly light, smooth formula. This foundation simultaneously fights aging, retains moisture, and covers and treats blemishes with a non-oily, perfectly radiant finish.
Key Benefits:

  • Perfects:  Enjoy natural looking coverage while micro-encapsulated pigments perfects and fade dark spots and acne scarring.
  • Corrects:  Anti-aging and collagen building ingredients help minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Hydrates:  Hydra-Extend technology provides up to 72 hours of continuous hydration.
  • Conceals:  Micro encapsulated pigments deliver a fresh dose of color that adapts to your own skin tone, creating the most natural looking coverage.
  • Smoothes:  Skin nourishing ingredients help to correct and maintain youthful complexion."
On to my review:
I recieved the color Natural which is the mid-toned shade. The color applies white/off white but as you blend it, it adjusts to your skin tone. Usually, these types of products are a bit off when it comes to matching your skin tone. I was pretty impressed with how well the color blended in with my skin. After blending onto my whole face, my skin looked more even and refreshed. This CC cream can be worn by itself, over your moisturizer, or under your foundation. I would definitely wear this by itself on my no-makeup days just to give my skin a more even look to it. 

Here is a picture of me with no makeup on besides the Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream:
When I first tried this out, I wore it over my moisturizer. I used a concealer for my dark circles and lightly dusted pressed powder to finish the look. I do feel that the CC cream did what it is supposed to. It is hydrating, and corrects, and it also gives your skin a smooth, natural finish. It is not overly heavy or greasy. I also like that it provides an SPF since some of my foundations and powders do not. I did notice a little bit of oil in my T-Zone towards the end of my work day but it wasn't any more than I usually have with other foundations and powders.
Overall, I do recommend this product. It does everything that it claims to and I am quite pleased with the result. I have tried BB Creams and I just felt that they didn't do much for me coverage wise. This is the first CC Cream I have tried and I really like it.

The Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream can be purchased for $34.00 on the Studio Gear Cosmetics website-- http://studiogearcosmetics.com/shop/best-sellers/hydrating-cc-cream/
