I imagine you’re thinking that the newly launched Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm is a dupe for Jergens BB Body Perfect Skin Cream which is why I decided to do comparisons of the two. I think it’s the first thing that popped into my head when I saw that Urban Decay had launched a “Body BB Cream”. Strangely enough it was the budget brand that started the trend with the higher end following behind on it. Typically we see a big trend pop up for a product and a month to several months later you’ll start seeing similiar style products at the drugstore.
Not the case here.
Jergens was the first company to market a BB Cream for your body and Urban Decay followed close behind. I imagine as we head into Summer we are going to see MORE and more and more brands embracing this trend.
So here’s a comparison of Jergen’s version and Urban Decay’s.
Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm ($32) is an upcoming Body BB Cream that will be added to the Urban Decay Naked Skin Collection of products with a new Summer Collection entitled Summer Nights. I know, I know you’re probably think, “Oh a dupe of Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream!” but the two products are vastly different and I’ll do comparison swatches for you shortly.
Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm is formulated to tighten skin as well as blur the appearance of flaws giving skin a smoother, firmer, more radiance finish.
MAC Maleficent Anthurium Pro Longwear Lipglass ($22) is a new limited edition shade inspired by the new Maleficent that debuts at theaters later this month.
Unlike the Maleficent Lipstick this shade runs cooler to me but should pair up nicely with the lipstick because it morphs to a warmer shade once applied.

MAC Maleficent True Love’s Kiss Lipstick is a limited edition, new shade of bright red lipstick that launched recently with the new MAC Maleficent Collection inspired by the new Disney movie.
MAC’s been on a role lately with red lipsticks so I was quite excited about this shade.

Looking for the perfect glossy blood red for nails? MAC Maleficent Flaming Red Nail Polish is one of three, limited edition shades inspired by the upcoming Maleficent film starring Angelina Jolie that’s available now at maccosmetics.com.
This brilliant shade of red goes perfectly with the Maleficent Lipstick and Lipglass also available in this collection.
