BB Creams are trending in the US at the moment and you’ll probably see more come the Fall I imagine. So far Smashbox, MAC, and Boscia have introduced BB Creams stateside with a special appearance by Korean brand name, Dr. Jart exclusively at Sephora.
BB Creams have been toned down a bit for the US market but the concept remains the same in some aspects. A creamy base product to flatter many skin tones that offers sun protection and a flawless finish that evens out skin tone. Whitening benefits, pigmentation, and some anti-aging benefits are missing from US versions but hopefully we catch up sometime soon to our Asian friends in this market.
Now that BB Creams are on the rise here what comes next?
That would be CC Creams or Color Control Creams. What’s a CC Cream? It’s the next generation BB Cream.
Matte…..the evilness in my otherwise perfect makeup world. Matte is such a damn difficult formula for me to get a handle on. Be it eyeshadow or lipstick, I just can’t do the matte thang!
I picked up some Bourjois So Delicate Lip Creams several months ago on ASOS even though the formula is all about the matte but curious I was so I snatched these up and called it a day. Why, oh, why did Bourjois pull out of the US? In other great news it’s now available in Canada…!
Let’s take a look at these and see if the matte agrees with me!
Lori Greiner was on QVC yesterday and she brought her brilliant Cosmetic Box along for her presentation. If you’ve up to date on my storage posts you know I really sweat Lori’s stuff hard.
She makes some of thee most innovative storage units for makeup and jewelry that I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning. If you have a smaller stash or just want some place pretty to put your essentials, I highly recommend picking up the Lori Greiner Luxury Deluxe Wood Cosmetic Box.
I gotta say I really like the six pan Wet n Wild ColorIcon Palettes considerably more than the trios. Dare I whisper that the trios are a tad TOO shimmery…
Blasphemy! Did I just say too much shimmer?
True that. They really are intense but at this price no one is complaining around here. Want cheap Summer bronzed lids? Snatch up the new limited edition Wet n Wild ColorIcon in the The Gilded Age for under $3 bucks and have extra change in your wallet this Summer.
