Bobbi Brown releases its own BB Cream with SPF35 for customers who want a product with serious skincare and makeup benefits. This all in one cream perfects and smoothes skin's appearance instantly and over time. The BB cream comes in three natural looking skin tone correct shades. It is lightweight and easily buildable, evens out and gives skin a lit-from-within glow. Skin is filled with moisture as oil and shine are kept at bay. It even promises to make fine lines and wrinkles appear less noticeable, visibile redness is reduced and pores appear more refined.
Personally, I have hardly ventured into the realm of BB creams, only hearing about how they work wonders and now that almost every skincare and makeup company has come up with their own BB creams, it seems hard not to try some of them out. I have used the Legerie (fronted by Kelvin 'lao shi') a long time back, I have the Clinique one which I gave to my mom (who is a HUGE fan of it) and now I shall give this Bobbi Brown one a go. I am concerned about whether the shade suits me, and also it is able to give me the coverage I need in my base, since I don't think I will be using a foundation on top of the BB cream.
Here are some swatches:
Mine is in the shade LIGHT which is the middle shade (the others being Extra Light, and Fair)
As you can see, this shade blends perfectly into the back of my hand. I am thinking the slight yellowish tone also reduces the pink/ red undertones on my hand.
And I wore it this morning, with only suncreen underneath. This picture was taken after three hours of wear - I ran several errands this morning, sun was blazing, so I needed all the sun protection I could get.
I still had to conceal my spots, but other than that, complexion is even-ed out, and I set the face with a loose setting powder.
Lips and eyes are bare, while I dusted Giorgio Armani blusher on my cheeks.
So far, I quite like how it makes me look fresh, without having to use too many products, great when you need to rush out of the house, or go somewhere nearby. I am still not quite sure if I should use this only on its own if I were to be out and about the whole day.
What's your stand on BB creams?
Hope this is helpful, and thanks for looking!
