The onslaught of European BB Creams on the market is enough to give some makeup addicts BB fatigue, but luckily I love trying out anything new (especially BB Creams) so I’ve taken to the task with gusto. Next in line after La Roche Posay’s BB offering is Bobbi Brown’s BB Cream, a product which has had whisperings of greatness so far in the blogging world.
So here’s the low down. First, Bobbi Brown are a bit more savvy when it comes to product shades. This BB Cream comes in 5 shades, a brilliant move. I was sent Extra Light which I was already giddy about as the light shade in the vast majority of BB Creams over here can be shockingly ill-judged . Another bonus is that it has a SPF35.
Now here’s where things get interesting. It goes on a little dry but the shade is pretty perfect on my skin despite it being warmer in tone than the Korean BB Creams swatched above. The problem is that it seems a little obvious on my skin, more like a foundation than a BB Cream. It looked clumpy around my pores and dry patches.
I really wanted to love this one, I was willing myself to, but alas, it just wouldn’t behave like I wanted it to. If your skin is a bit better behaved than my own you may find this to be a great product, but for now I’d totally opt for Bobbi Brown’s skin foundation instead which is just beautiful.
