Frederic, what you use depends on what other bits you have installed. If it were me I'd be using my Magic Bullet Looks. Maybe you have something from Boris or some other vendor that would be suitable.
If you just have the straight apps without anything in the way of plugins, PP offers a fair few colour tools. Though I havn't done any extensive grading in Native PP or AE, my guess would be that AE offers more possibilities.
To my knowledge, there's nothing at the affordable colour grading end for Windows like Apple's "Color".
Hope that at least points you in the right direction.
How does Color Finesse from Synthetic Apeture (Free with AE) compare with "Color".
I'll advise to keep it simple unless soemone else is paying the bills. If you work in PPro then the colour correction tools available 'in house' PPro will do a fantastic job as long as you understand that colour correction is very intuitive and can take some time. If you're adding FXs from Photoshop or AE you may find some unexpected outcomes BUT I use PPRo CC for PProjects.
I have to agree with the post from Jarrod. Unless you have some specific
needs for your color correction, the tools in PPro will do a very good
job. Color Finesse in AE is a very good tool and will let you have some
extraordinary control over color correction, but its not the easiest
