Shills BB Foundation Cream Review & Swatches

Shills BB Foundation Cream

Shills BB Blemish Balm Foundation Cream is an expensive way to get fuller coverage in a luxurious cream foundation formula. This might be a shy too rich for Summer but if you love creamy foundations you should definitely explore this one.

Take a look!

This is beautiful foundation at this price ($15) and on par with brands like Laura Mercier who does a similar thicker cream foundation. Shills BB Foundation Cream isn’t really a BB Cream in the traditional sense so I’d stick to calling it a cream foundation product.

It comes in a small glass jar (30ML) with a spatula for scooping out product. Sadly, it comes in a single shade which is a lighter creamy beige that has light beige undertones. It is sheerer so you can easily use it without appearing too pasty or chalky if you range in the medium skin tone. One thing it really excels at is brightening up my complexion and creating a smooth, flawless appearance. The rich creamy texture applies and blends easily with finger tips or a brush. It has a smooth, soft satiny finish that doesn’t adhere to my drier areas. It just looks very natural and beautiful. You can apply it for heavier medium coverage by building slowly and still it’ll look very natural. I love how lightweight it is. It’s as if I’m not wearing makeup at all. You’ll find coverage conceals redness, darkness, and minor skin issues where as a heavier application will conceal acne scarring, blemishes etc…It wears for a solid 12 hours without fading or oxidizing.

Unfortunately, the sad lack of shades makes it impossible for a wider range of tones to try or use it. It seems to adjust well for my medium fair skin however, I could see it going slightly pasty on tanned or darker tones. If it fits your tone you’re in for a treat because the formula is simply beautiful to say the least.

It’s a darn shade it is limited to a single shade though!

You can grab it at Sasa.com

Anyone try it?

    Are there any skincare benefits (since it is a BB)? Or is it mainly for coverage?

    • the Muse

      no that’s why I said it could really be called a traditional bb cream and just a foundation product as there aren’t any other real benefits of calling it a bb cream outside of the creamy thicker texture.

    I have tried this and it worked really well with my skin tone. I am fair with freckles. It gave me a little color but not so much it looked unnatural. I am keeping this for when I have good skin days. I like something a little heavier for when my skin is not at its best

    I definitely want to try this! The shade looks perfect for my skin.
