I purchased my first MAC Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm Compact in August I believe? MAC launched the BB Beauty Balm Compact a few months ago but not many folks realized it was hanging out on the website.
It comes to the forefront this Spring 2013 as part of the general catalog. I mentioned in a few posts already that you’ll see BB Creams getting a big push for Spring so I suspect that’s why MAC is kinda bringing this forward.
Also keep in mind, it was supposed to launch with the Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm but for some reason there were some delays thus the new “relaunch” of the product.
Take a look!
I recently hauled MUA Makeup Academy BB All In One Beauty Balm during their Facebook sale. I was quite interested in this BB Cream since reading so many reviews on it.
It’s available in six shades for £4 each however, during the sale I paid half that price. Seriously, £4 is a good deal without the added advantage of the sale. By the way, the sale is still ongoing, simply use promo code MUA40 for 40% Off your total.

I picked up Revlon Photoready BB Cream on Saturday and blogged it from my car. Revlon BB Cream? Yeah, I was excited.
I actually found it at Bed, Bath, and Beyond marked at a very reasonable $8.29. I was surprised as although BBB is part of Harmons, typically their prices are higher for some odd reason or another. $8.29 seems reasonable enough. I suspect once it hits the standard round of drugstores the price will range from $9.99-$11.99.
Having been very disappointed with Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream as well as other US BB Creams I haven’t pinned too many hopes on Revlon Photoready BB Cream.
What did I think?
Here’s a few thoughts!
Rimmel has a new BB Cream that launched earlier this Fall in the UK that’s available in Light and Medium shades.
Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation BB Cream is a 9 in 1 formula that primes, mattifies, moisturizers, minimizes the appearance of pores, conceals blemishes, and protects with an SPF 25.
It looks like the newer drugstore BB Creams are stepping up their SPF as Revlon’s new BB Cream has an SPF 30 and now this with an SPF 25. Excellent! Hopefully they turn out more pigmented than the more recent releases.
This will prob launch shortly here in the US but it is already available on ASOS.com for around $13.
I’ll be sure to update as it becomes available in our market!
Gosh BB Cream is available at Duane Reade stores. Actually the entire or most of the Gosh Collection is available at Duane Reade now so if you’ve been wanting to try this brand you can do so now. Plus they have testers available which scores points for extra coolness in my book.
I was highly interested in checking out that Gosh BB Cream after hearing about it some mouths ago so I finally stepped in store to grab one up. This promises to act as your foundation, primer, and moisturizer. I should have known that it wouldn’t be too much of a true BB Cream formula but my curiosity was piqued none the less.
