Due to moving house and other stressors my skin has not been at it's best lately and I was in the market for more coverage in an every day foundation. I found a good colour match for myself in the line, however there are limited colours available. I wear BB7, a very yellow toned medium skin colour.
When I used it for the first time people commenting on how great my skin looks and if I was wearing anything and also asking what it was. I was really surprised that people noticed. So I guess this has a really great finish. Another big plus is that this product stays on all day, no matter how humid or long the day, it's perfect for Summer and the beach due to it's sunprotection and water resistance.
The packaging is just amazing, a practical squuuueze tube in gold, with is great for travel and every day use while still locking beautiful. When it comes to application be prepared to only use the smallest possible amount and follow the instruction: Place little dots in different areas of the face before you warm and work the product with fingers into the skin from the center outwards. It takes some getting used to and if you use too much product it won't work. This product is VERY high coverage so you really only need a tiny amount, really great as one tube will last you a long long time.
I tried many different ways of using it and I found it was important to moisturize my skin well before and it works best with the Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Primer (which smells delicious by the way), it makes my skin feel very smooth and supple yet it's light and quickly absorbed, it also enhances the radiance.
Being a lover of a very dewy finish, I was a little scared how matte the BB Creme went on, how ever it sets very quickly on my skin and transforms into a radiant finish. On days that I feel dehydrated I was setting it with Pommisst Which seals it in and gives instantly more glow.
I recommend this for:
