I’m always on the search for the next great thing in the world of makeup. BB creams arrived on the scene pretty quickly and now CC creams are pushing their way on the shelves. Before I moved on to the next letter of the alphabet, I wanted to give one more BB cream a try. So, I decided to make one last stop on the BB train and give Bobbi Brown’s version a try.
At $42, Bobbi Brown’s version is a bit pricier than other BB creams I’ve reviewed, but it is so worth it. I’ve found that I use much less of this product than other BB creams. It goes on so smooth and provides the best coverage I’ve seen while still managing to look natural. It moisturizes and protects my skin from even in the harshest, driest winter temps we’ve had so far. It isn’t oily and is virtually odorless, which was my major complaint with other creams. Below, you can see the texture is more moisturizer than makeup.
I apply the cream by hand, no brush necessary, each morning with a touch of bronzer and blush for a natural, dewy look. If you’re looking for a bit more coverage for a night out or just a bad skin day, mix your BB cream with your foundation and apply it with a brush. The BB cream will help keep your skin moisturized while the foundation will you give you more coverage.
With the added bonus of SPF 35, this BB Cream looks good and does good too by protecting your skin from the sun. There are 5 shades available. The Extra Light was too pale even for my Irish skin so be sure to try the different shades on before buying.
