BB Creams are something of a summer product for me. When the weather is warmer and I don’t want a full face of make up during the day I love to wear a BB Cream because 1) they generally have nice coverage, even if it is light, they look nice on my skin and they feel a lot lighter than some of my foundations, most of which are medium to full coverage.
Although full coverage foundations are my preference most of the time, when it is warm I tend to prefer lighter coverage as I don’t want a full coverage base that’s going to feel uncomfortable and melt off in the heat. Not to mention it will feel heavy in the warmer months.
I spoke about it briefly in my March Hits & Misses and why it is such a miss for me, so I’ll go into more detail in this post.
I saw this in a local chemist and decided to pick it up as it was on offer for around €10 so I thought I may as well give it a try. As I’m pale, naturally I chose the light one.
What grabbed my attention with this is that is has pigment particles in it which are supposed to adjust to your skin. To me that sounded great, and I absolutely love that idea. I mean who doesn’t?
Why wouldn’t you want something that will adjust to your skin tone? I thought because it’s the light one, if it was too light I could add bronzer or make it work somehow.
I didn’t expect it to leave me with an orange face. The photographs aren’t picking up or showing just how orange it is.
It’s far too dark/orange for light skin, perhaps for a medium to dark skin it would be better.
I decided to wear it around the house anyway and it did perform well. It lasted for about six hours, at which point it still looked great.
It’s a nice product and I love the concept that it adapts to your skin tone.
It has semi-matte finish that gave a healthy look and radiant glow to my skin that looked so natural.
It evened out my complexion and just looked beautiful. I wish it came in a lighter shade because I would 100% use this.
It had light coverage but you could build it up for more medium coverage I’m sure. I think it’s too light to build up to full coverage.
