I have really weird skin combination its really oily but sensitive so it have been really hard finding that happy medium for my skin, I get complimented on my skin complexion from alot of people but the truth is that I struggle with keeping it calm, clear and happy. Ive always had a complex with my skin since the age of 12 that is when I started to get pimples and so on, so it have been a struggle to find that balance for my skin and finally it seems like I am managing my skin and understand what works and what doesnt work with my skin.
Why wear BB cream?:
Most BB cream goes on really smooth, feels really light on your skin and supposed to give your skin that "natural" look,, like that look that you are not wearing anything. So that is why it have gotten really popular because who doesnt want a beautiful natural looking skin? So most of BB cream give you the finish of dewy and fresh look which I love about bb creams~ Most important thing for me with BB cream is that it doesnt make you feel like you are wearing a mask like when you know you are wearing a foundation feel, also must match my skin tone because most BB creams comes in limited shades so that makes things alittle hard to know if it will match you.
What I felt with this bb cream:
with this BB cream first thing I noticed is that it is doesnt have a greasy or oily texture to the cream which is a plus for my oily skin and another thing is that it is water based so it goes on very light and smooth almost like gel like. When you blend on you can clearly see the bb cream's water contents so you kinda feel like you splashed water on your face which was refreshing in FL :p
On the shade:
I am fairly light right now the lightest I have seen myself to be since I lived in FL most of my American life so I was used to seeing my skin tone alot darker than the shade I am now so I used to be about NC35 in FL but now I am about NC25 a big difference huh... I guess thats what happens when your skin doesnt see much of the sun anymore lol So this BB cream matches my skin tone really well its not too light or dark on me.
On to the coverage:
OK, so you can see that I clearly do NOT have flawless skin I just know what to mask and correct my skin with make up, I know its pretty scary since you guys are all used to seeing my skin all done and flawless with the power of make up! :3 LOL.. so I have issues with dark circles, milia, sun spots, uneven skin tone and redness around my nose along with occasional break outs so what I look for in a foundation for me is good coverage but not so matte that it looks like a mask on me but covers enough but still give me a dewy natural finish
so this BB cream like with most BB cream the more coats you apply the more it will cover so you can use it really light like a tinted moisturizer or full cover foundation. Usually I use concealer under my eyes for my dark circles because it doesnt fully cover with just foundation but in this photos I didnt use it to show you how much this BB cream covers my imperfections.
with one coat it just evens out my skin alittle but not enough to cover my imperfections with 2 coats it seems to give more evened out look, got rid of my reddness around my nose and more of a flawless look but its not enough to cover my dark circles fully but I do like that the consistency of this BB cream goes light and not heavy on my skin but I can tell that I am wearing the BB cream. Also it does finish off with fresh and natural skin look and dewy. :)
I think it will be good for anyone that have oily skin and if you are looking for more of a light coverage since its water based. I not sure if it stays on perfectly for a long period of time but I think you would love it if you like to use tinted moisturizers this will give you more coverage but with same consistency and feel♥
In this photo I added the finished look with Lioele Marbling blusher which gave my skin more luminescent look since the blush seems work better all over the face since its not so pigmented
forgot to include a close up...
here you can really see that it made my skin really even and more dewy :)
