Another BB Cream?? Seems Clarins knew what we would all be thinking when
they launched their very own BB Cream, but I think as time passes BB Creams
are improving vastly, with recent offerings being more compatible with oily skins
and lending more coverage than the earlier tinted moisturiser type BB Creams.
So when I seen Clarins pop through my door I was less "Oh No another BB Cream?"
and more " Oh YAY another BB Cream?"
The BB Cream launching in April 2013 will be available in 3 shades Light,
Medium and Dark, I have swatched the Medium shade here which is quite
dark, I predict the light shade to be a sell out much like the Clarins loose
powder from the Spring collection...
On first squeeze the formula is really thick, but its blends out well and
can be applied with a foundation brush or with fingers, I favour a flat top
kabuki brush to apply mine. Coverage wise, I would say is medium,
It covered all the redness in my skin and did a good job of covering up
the odd blemish. The finish is Satin, and dry skin girls would love it,
but, don't rule it out if you have oily skin like me, a touch of powder
over the T-Zone and it served me well and lasted all day.
In the picture here I am wearing the BB Cream and some Clarins Loose
Powder over the T-Zone and just a touch of blush.
Clarins BB Cream will be on counters from April and will cost €33.50
