After the MUA BB Cream was released, I found myself being sucked into the BB Cream hype. I had tried the Garnier BB cream when it was released and was not impressed with it at all. I found it too sheer and thin and didn’t find that it did much of anything for my skin. So when MUA announced it was releasing a BB cream, I thought I would give it a go. But alas, my local Superdrug always seemed to be sold out of my shade and I got impatient. So instead I picked up the 17 Cosmetics BB Cream.
BB Cream in the UK just seems to be glorified foundation as far as I’m concerned. I did like the fact that the 17 BB Cream contains SPF 25. When I first used this BB cream, I put way too much on my face and it made my skin quite oily. This product needs to be applied very sparingly for the best results so if you like a heavier coverage, I would not recommend this. I have been applying this by squeezing some on the back of my hand and applying it with a foundation brush and often I find that I have excess leftover.
Another thing with this BB cream is that is applies very streaky, it really needs to be worked into the skin. I think it would be awesome with a buffing brush, but I just use a foundation brush and then go over it with my ELF kabuki brush. It gives a nice sheer coverage, which I like, here’s a before. Excuse my purple under eye area, I am wearing absolutely no makeup here.
Have you tried 17 Cosmetics BB Cream? What other BB Creams have you tried?
