A few days ago I noticed I had a couple open BB Creams and that I was actually using all simultaneously and thought I’d share these with you.
I wear mostly BB Creams in my everyday makeup routine. I like the sheer barely there look and the added moisturization. I have other BB Creams that are open but I’ve already discussed my thoughts on Tarte’s Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer which you can read here and I’ve been using my sample of Pur-Lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream that I received from Topbox so it will probably be in an empties post soon.
Covergirl cgsmoothers BB Cream Tinted Cream Tinted Moisturizer ($8.97)
This is the very first BB Cream I purchased and I’ve become accustomed to using it on its own and mixed with foundation. I think since I last bought this they’ve changed their shade names because I have 710 which I think is equivalent to 810 now which is light to medium. It’s a bit darker than my natural skin tone but once blended in it helps to give my face a bit more natural warmth. It also leaves a satin finish and leaves my skin hydrated. This has a creamy texture which is really light weight.
Benefit Big Easy BB Cream ($49.00)
It wasn’t until I was looking up some info on this product that I realized how old my actual tube of the Benefit BB Cream is. Not sure if the formula was reformulated or if it’s just the packaging but the one currently on Sephora has an SPF 35 and I can’t tell if mine ever was. You can see in the photo below from Sephora that now Benefit has changed the packaging to include a note that it has an SPF.
Of all the BB Creams I own, I use this the least. It has a really mousey texture which I don’t like and I find it doesn’t blend super well for me. This is a liquid to powder bb cream that doesn’t work well for my dry skin because it’s supposed to balance out the oils in your skin. I should have probably read the labels before picking this up.
Garnier BB Cream + Blur Cream ($15.97)
This is the newest BB Cream in my collection and currently my favourite because as well as having added moisturizers this also blurs and perfects the skin. I like wearing this on its own and under makeup as a primer too. The formula of this is liquidity so I find it blends into the skin easily (more like a light moisturizer would). It also has a light fresh scent which I am loving. The finish on this is a velvet matte so it doesn’t look completely matte on the skin but more matte than say my Covergirl BB would. I have this in the shade light which I find matches my skin nicely.
Below I’ve put a photo of each of the BB Creams, on the left is just a squeeze out from the tubes on and on the right I’ve blended them into my hand so you can see what they look like when sitting on the skin.
Do you have any BB Cream recommendations? Do you wear BB Creams? Let me know!
Lots of luv,
