THE CLAIMS:


The First EE Creme: Even Effect Skintone Corrector instantly creates more flawless, luminous, even-toned skin. This ultra-sheer skin-transformer gives you a hint of healthy color and creates an overall even effect. Instantly helps minimize the look of dark spots, sun spots, post acne marks, redness and pores. Softens, smooths and hydrates. By day, delivers high-level SPF 30 protection and powerful anti-oxidants to help prevent sun damage and defend against other environmental assaults that lead to uneven skintone. In multiple shades to suit a wide range of skin tones.






THE INSPECTION:



Care for Oily SkinThis is extremely sheer.  If you have anything you want to cover, you would not want to use this. It looks pretty on and photographs well.  There are only 3 shades - light, medium, and deep----and they are so far apart in color.  The light is almost like a lotion.  It disappears into the skin. The medium is pretty dark.  And although this is sheer, if you have fair skin it needs a lot of blending to match your neck.  I like the 30 SPF in this, but I did not find the claims of minimizing red or dark areas to be true.  It is also a bit too glowing- which works in a photograph but a little too much for a daytime look.  It highlights the entire face- not just the cheekbones or other areas you would use a highlighter . I used it alone over moisturizer but it might work better under a foundation. Probably not great for oily skin.
