I had girlfriends visiting yesterday’s night and this meant home cooked dinner,
a little bit of gossiping and plenty of girl-talk and catching up!
I’m censuring our chat’s spicy details but there’s something I feel the urge to share as we had quite an extensive conversation about BB Creams.
Have you ever tried those?
I was aware that the three of us use the same BB Cream (Miracle Skin Perfector by Garnier) but it was somewhat interesting to realize that we have different thoughts about this kind of product.
Being so, I asked them to share with us their thoughts because when skincare and make-up are concerned tastes vary so much and things that work for one person may not necessarily work with other people, isn’t it?
My dear friend Cleo from the blog Tyrony is a fearless product experimenter like me but in a better skin version. As she says: “Sometimes time (& patience) runs short to apply the make-up. BB creams are a pearl to those of us who enjoy that extra minutes in bed, but still want to look flawless in no time! I’d highly recommend these.”
I could not agree more with her!
My girl Gabi has worked for some years in the beauty field so I really take her word on this field, not to mention she’s extremely demanding. As she says: “The finishing of the foundation doesn’t always turn out as desired: not rarely foundation or compact powder lead to artificial and aged looks. Since I discovered the BB cream I leave the foundation application for the colder months. Nonetheless, because I have oily skin on the T-zone I apply loose powder after BB Cream for a perfect result.”
For me a BB cream is something between a foundation and a treatment cream: it lightly covers imperfections without having a “mask” effect. Can be used as make-up foundation or even replace them. (Even its application is similar to the foundation application.)
Hot BB Creams (Always make sure you choose the right shade for your skin tone!)
1. Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector // 2. Smashbox Camera Ready // 3. Clinique Age Defense BB Cream // 4. DiorSnow BB Cream // 5. Estee Lauder Daywear BB
I’ve only tried the Garnier one so far and I really like its texture. It does not cover as much as a foundation would, so it is not the best option for those who want great coverage power. However, it is excellent for those who do not usually use foundation but want to sublimate skin tone and make it more even without a heavy look.
On another note, the night was too much fun, dinner was great, much due to Gabi’s cuisine know-how (boy, is that girl gifted!).
Our plan was to watch a film after dinner but we ended up surfing the internet 6 hands (don’t try this at home!).
I even got introduced by one of them to Foxy Bingo: an experience you’ll love if you’re into playing bingo online. I’m not much of a gambler myself but I admit I had FUN!
Time flies when you’re having fun, hey? Gotta make sure we’ll be repeating this sometime soon!!
What’s your take on BB Creams? Do share :)
