Sure it’s essentially a tinted moisturizing but NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme is actually a super cheap thrill to pick up for lightweight coverage this Summer season!
NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme lacks SPF but they tote it as a multitasking genie that minimizes pores and fine lines, smooths skin, brightens, and has a wear of up to 14 hours.
Whoa now…marketing is a bit much on this little guy but I will say it is Muse Approved for purchase!
NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme isn’t going to change your life anytime soon or walk the dog but at $3.99 it’s a perfect tinted moisturizer for lightweight Summer coverage. This is the type of product you’ll want to use to even out your skin tone, conceal minor redness, while brightening up skin and creating a beautiful canvas for your makeup. It’s light, breathable, and quite hydrating on my drier skin (it might be too dewy for oily skin so prepare to powder up after application to keep shine and oil at bay).
NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme Swatches (Medium)
The thin, gel-like texture absorbs easily and blends out flawlessly. It’s a snap to use and completely foolproof to apply. Of course, it does run sheer so it isn’t going to rock your world by providing intense coverage! If you already have good skin and need a little bit of brightening up and maybe a bit of evening out this is a good way to go. I like it because I personally don’t need a ton of coverage and this is very, very lightweight with the perfect dewy finish that keeps my skin pleasantly hydrated and fresh looking. Wear time is sadly not the promised 14 hours! No way, no how! But it’ll wear you well for at least four hours without powder and pushing to five with powder.
Like I said it isn’t life changing and it isn’t a BB Cream that’s for sure but this lightweight foundation is ideal for those that want natural, lightweight makeup for the warmer weather ahead that won’t break the bank!
