I think they have discontinued the previous CC Cream, since that was in two shades Beige and Bronze and I was in middle, I could never use it much. Beige was light for me and Bronze was dark for me.
Thankfully, with this Color Transform Cream, it blends and matches your skin tone, so I need not worry about it being light or dark. Bronze will definitely be darker for me though but the Beige one matches me well.
It comes in a similar tube packaging but in an ombre white to nude pink color, representing the color transform. It comes out as a white cream with tiny, little grey-black beads in it. They do not feel like beads or gritty since they are very minute. But those help in actually transforming the cream. Once you apply and blend it onto the skin, it changes color and matches your skin tone. Both shades look exactly the same in swatch, but once blended you can notice how beige is light and bronze is darker.
Beige is perfect for fair to medium skin tone and Bronze is perfect for medium to dark skin tones. I am glad they have strong beige yellow undertones and are perfect for most Indian skin tones. Though if you are cool toned or pinker, this might look a little yellow on you.

This cream instantly brightens and evens out the skin, as claimed. It does feel moisturizing and also gives SPF30 PA++ protection. Though this will not cover your dark circles or blemishes, you will have to use a concealer separately on top for that. You also need to set this cream with a powder since it is on the heavier side.
But once set, it stays put for a good 6-7 hours, only needs a powder touch up in between. I do use a concealer for under eyes and a powder separately, but I do see myself using this a lot for everyday basis.
I totally recommend this for college and work wear. This is perfect for everyday use and with the online discount, it turns out to be pretty economical and gives sunscreen protection with PA++ too.
If you do not like using separate products and love multi tasking products, you will love it! If you need more coverage and wear makeup regularly, you can use this a primer.
Also one thing I noticed is the more you blend, the more it adapts to your skin tone. I am not really sure, let me know in the comments below, if you tried and experienced that.
Overall, definitely recommend it!
