Vichy ProEven Mineral BB Cream Review & Swatches

Vichy ProEven Mineral BB Cream

Vichy ProEven Mineral BB Cream recently launched for Spring in two shades selections of Light and Medium. At $32.50 it is one of the more mid-range BB Creams you’ll see here in the US even though it is available at drugstores and Ulta.

One thing I personally love about BB Cream is how it brightens up my skin and eases dullness. It’s two of the deciding factors for me when reviewing BB Creams, “Does it brighten my skin up?” “Does it ease dullness?” These are important issues for me so I choose BB Creams that work to address these issues.

Although Vichy ProEven Mineral BB Cream isn’t as creamy as Korean BB Cream it still manages to address dullness and brightens up my face which makes it solid gold brilliance. A little more SPF, a creamy texture with a little more moisture and I’d definitely feel like it was near perfect.

Here’s a look!

Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek PK415

Majolica Majorca released two limited edition shades of Puff de Cheek for Summer 2012 one of which was Raspberry Macaron. I already raved Cherry Macaron rather hard so I thought I’d haul out Raspberry today and review it.

Ok, so I’m a little late and Raspberry might be a little harder to find but it is well worth checking out!

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB Review & Swatches

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB 1

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB is an interesting new BB Cream from the brand that features a bounce-y texture that just makes you want to sit around and play with it.

I was tempted to make a little video featuring it as I wanted you to see the texture in as true to life medium as possible. The thing is, the bb cream, almost has a life its own. Seriously! It’s ALIVE! You can pop a finger in it, scrap some off the top, place a brush in it, and after a few seconds to a minute it’ll “grow” over and become fresh and new again. It’s odd! We have to be careful, it might take over the universe at some point!
