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!

BRTC Jasmine Waterful Base Review & Swatches

BRTC Jasmine Waterful Base

You probably already know I’m a huge fan of BRTC Jasmine Water BB Cream so it was a logical step to purchase the new BRTC Jasmine Waterful base to use in conjunction with that BB Cream.

Considering I have dry skin the BRTC Jasmin Waterful Base sounded like an excellent way to prep skin prior to makeup application of any kind.

Turns out it’s more of a night treatment than a day one!

Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream Launches at Drugstores

Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream

Aveeno is set to release a Clear Complexion BB Cream for Spring 2013 in drugstores. Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream will be available in two shade selections, Fair to Light and Medium to Dark, for $16.99.

Aveeno already has a tinted moisturizer of sorts in their general catalog (I’ve never tried it but it seems interesting) so I’m unsure if they simply renamed that TM or if this is a brand new product.

I think $16.99 is a tad expensive but I’m still quite interested in purchasing. I suspect it’ll be very sheer and even if it is I think it might just be a nice tinted moisturizer formula none the less.

I’m quite eager to check it out.

Which BB Creams at the drugstore have wow’ed you lately?

Any?

Do share!
