You may have been hearing some buzz about a new facial product that was recently introduced to the North American market called BB Cream. This product has been around on the Asian market Forever, and it's HUGE over there!
In short, BB Cream is a light moisturizer, tinted corrector and makeup primer all rolled into one. Hearing about such a multi-use product sounded to good to be true, but being the makeup junkie I am, and upon hearing some rave reviews about it from a friend, I ran out and picked some up!
I bought the MARCELLE INNOVATION version (Garnier makes a BB Cream as well). It runs about $22 for a 45ml bottle. I bought the med-dark shade, but there is a light-med option as well. The 2 color options cover a pretty broad range. I was looking for something that would even out my skin, but that was light for summer and still had moderate coverage (to hide my random acne scars and occasional breakouts). I was aiming high. BUT to my surprise, I LOVED it!!
It felt great on my skin, hydrating, but not sticky or greasy feeling at all. The coverage was the perfect amount for the beach or running around during the day. It didn't get cakey and evened out my skin just enough. If you've still got some trouble spots you'd like to cover, just dot on a gel or cream concealer over top.
Here is my before and after shot. Same lighting, same camera...NO Photoshop. The BB cream makes my skin illuminate in the second.
Before: JUST washed face with some mascara
One sweep of bronzer and one sweep of pink blush on the cheeks.
Light pink and neural brown shadow.
Application time: 1.5 minutes, start to finish!
Anyone looking for a simple, natural look for summer, TRY THIS!!
