My New Favorite BB Cream!

13 Mar

Great product alert!!!!! Today I was informed by a good friend that she had found the BB cream of her dreams! When it comes to BB creams/Tinted moisturizers, I have tried them all. So I drove to my local Benefit makeup counter and tried it out! I must say this product outdoes them all. I was beyond impressed!

Benefit Better Than BB Big Easy

Benefit Big Easy $38

Here are a few reasons why-

*The coverage is great although it feels super lightweight. No cakey feel here!

*The Liquid to powder formula dries matte- with every other BB cream I’ve tried I feel they leave me somewhat shiny/sticky and I always have to set them with powder. So not the case with this product, I can wear it by itself!!!  or I can build on it if I want to for a night out.

*It has SPF 35! Not 15 or 20 like usual, but 35! That’s great!

*Blends right into my skin with this foundation brush. I can also use my fingers to dab it on dark spots etc. for a bit more coverage.

The only cons are-

*I feel like the shades don’t go dark enough for deep skinned makeup lovers. There are 6 shades available and I wear the 5th darkest and I’m not that dark! My favorite fashionista Lupita Nyong’o would NOT be able to wear this and that’s a damn shame! The product is fairly new, so I’m holding out hope that they will include more shades in the future.

*looks amazing over moisturizer- not so perfect without moisturizer. I always moisturize when I wash my face or get out of the shower, but for those of you who don’t, this product skims over dry patches of skin without really covering them.

If you’re willing to moisturize first- this is the best BB cream on the market in my opinion! Give it a shot!

I also purchased the Boi-ing industrial strength concealer for my little pimple friends that come to visit and it covers flawlessly!

My FAVORITE New Beauty Product!

20 Nov

I love BB creams and tinted moisturizers very much.  I’m a huge fan of Smash Box BB cream as well as Laura Mercer tinted moisturizer and recently I’ve been using Origins VitaZing moisturizer and I LOVE IT!  VitaZing is somewhat in a category of its own….like the products I previously mentioned, VitaZing is definitely a multi tasking moisturizer , it has SPF, anti oxidant rich mangosteen and a hint of color…….NOT weird orangey fake tan color either,  it just evens out my skin while adding a healthy glow.  I have medium/slightly deep colored skin and it gave me a glow!  It smells great and is fun to apply(comes out of the tube white with tiny brown specs and turns into a beautiful warm color as it’s rubbed into the skin) I cannot get enough of this stuff!  It’s great because I can wear it alone with or as a base for my makeup without it being cakey and with NO irritation!  It is much greater than I can even begin to explain…..please go to your local Origins and ask for a sample…..but before you do read the reviews they speak for themselves.  VitaZing is available at Origins $35 .  If you want a light moisturizer that evens out skin and is wearable everyday, this is your product!

Smashbox BB Cream: slightly heavy coverage
