Being a rather huge fan of Diorsnow’s BB Cream I was all about trying out the new Dior Diorskin Nude BB Creme. This was launched in four shades recently for Spring 2013.
Although Dior totally gets the concept of BB Cream, as we know from their genius release of Dior Diorsnow UV Shield White Reveal BB Creme, they somehow missed a beat with the new Diorskin Nude BB Creme and the experienced turned into more of a tinted moisturizer experience.
A very sad SPF 10 also joins the mix here (considering White Reveal contains 50, that is quite a jump down)…
Take a peek!
Flower by Drew Barrymore is a newly launched cosmetic line available exclusively at Walmart. Of course, the Flower BB Cream was one of the first things that caught my eye in this extensive new makeup line.
With BB Creams all the rage in the US market at the moment I definitely wanted to see how the Flower BB Cream stood up against the wave of drugstore BB Creams.
Considering the Flower line already has a range of Tinted Moisturizers perhaps they did indeed get BB Cream down right?
Take a look!
Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen…PHEW what a mouthful! Say it fast three times. Olay covers all bases here, BB Cream, Tinted Moisturizer…so they market it as both which automatically sets off warning bells in my head.
BB Cream is NOT a tinted moisturizer. The US has not caught on to this fact as of yet and has gone ahead and decided that marketing BB Creams as a tinted moisturizer is A SUPER idea….and everyone should be happy about it.
Ok, I won’t rant anymore.
But facts is facts combing BB Cream and Tinted Moisturizer into the name is confusing for consumers. If you’ve never tried BB Cream before and proceed to purchase Olay Fresh Effects you’ll automatically assume this is what a BB Cream is and that’s just not what this is.
Lumene Vitamin C+ Illuminating Anti-Age BB Cream is a multi-function BB Cream that recently launched at CVS. It has an SPF 20 with a formula that promises to brighten, hydrate, even out skin tone, and improves elasticity for a more youthful appearance.
Suitable for all skin types it comes in a light and medium shade selection.
I was quite excited to give this a test run and eagerly purchased both shades to swatch.
Today I’d love to tell you that Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Cream ($14.95) is an amazing new product. That finally we have a good, solid BB Cream available in the US.
But sadly, my testing didn’t go so great with this one.
As you know Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm launched late last week. Urban Decay’s first ever BB Cream leaves a little to be desired in the pigmentation department and acts more as a tinted moisturizer than a BB Cream. This alone had me worried whether I’d rant or rave it, love it or hate it.
However, after trying it out for the past several days I can honestly say it took me by surprise.
