I am a BB cream convert!

24 Sep

I was a little skeptical years ago when the BB cream trend caught on in the US, but I’ve been looking for something new recently and figured I’d try them out. I wanted something that was just as moisturizing as my Stila tinted moisturizer but didn’t give me such a dewwy-looking face. I decided to first try drugstore products because I wanted to save some cash and return them easily if the shade or feel wasn’t right for me. Somehow, I managed to hit jackpot on my second purchase! My first was Lumene Vitamin C+ BB cream. The texture was a little drying, and the color was a pinkish gray… it made me look weird. I returned it and loitered in the makeup aisle until I found Rimmel’s 9-in-1 BB cream. If I’m being honest, I mostly bought it because it was on sale, though I’m quite impressed with it. Ideally I wanted to find something light enough that I could easily skip concealer if I was having a good day but that wouldn’t make me look ghostly and flat like some creams and foundations do. This is me with only the BB cream, blush, brows, and mascara. I’m not complaining!

Yes, I have flaws, but unless I’m going to a special event, there’s no need for me to go all out. If you click on the link, it will go to a larger view and you can examine my face close up! :) (Beware of hairy eyebrows… I’m growing them out!)

Anyway, I’ve been very pleased with it so far, and the thing that makes me happiest is that I’ve had no signs of a breakout from this product. I’m on board with BB creams!

    I loved the invisible makeup video! He made it look so easy! I never really got into wearing makeup because, regardless of how many videos I watch, I have trouble applying it myself. Also, I hate how heavy my face feels when I’m wearing makeup! I know that is probably due to the type of makeup I buy. Maybe someone at Ulta can help me find the good stuff!
