BB creams..

Hey beautiful people,
So have you guys heard about BB creams the new "IT" beauty product on the market!! Well BB stands for Beauty Balm or Blemish balm. These are extremely popular in Asia and now the major cosmetic companies are jumping on the bandwagon and creating them. It's more of a multi-function cream that has coverage and skincare properties.It will give you a good base for makeup like a primer, even out complexion like a tinted moisturiser, cover minor imperfections and redness like a concealer, hydrate your skin like your day cream, brighten and perk-up a dull complexion and some will even protect with SPF. Some also promise healing, soothing and anti-ageing properties.

The magic of the BB Cream means you can wear it alone without foundation and you should get a light, natural finish coverage to give you a health glow and cover uneven skin tone. Use it when you don't fancy wearing full foundation or if you want to brighten and perk-up your skin between work and a night out.

This BB Cream phenomenon sounds too good to be true - is there anything it doesn't do?
It won't cover like a foundation so if you suffer from spots you might need to go over problem areas with a concealer. There are also limited shades on offer - generally light, medium or dark. Watch out for pinky undertones too which will not suit darker skin.
So I've seen good reviews on BB creams for darker skin from companies such as Maybelline, Smashbox, Clinique, Garnier and MAC . I really would love to try this so when I get my hands on one I will definitely do a review..has anyone tried BB cream?

Be blessed y'all
