Too Faced – COCOAFILTER Set

I just love Too Faced; and I love Chocolate. I just had the pleasure of trying their Cocoafilter kit

It has the - Tinted Beauty Balm SPF20, Cocoa Powder Foundation, Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer and Retractable Kabuki Brush

I’ll start with the Cocoa Powder Foundation this is a wonderful lightweight powdery foundation it will leave your skin feeling silky soft with a matte finish. My skin which is normally dry felt wonderful after applying this foundation.

It gave me great coverage not too heavy or too light it was just perfect. Ii used it 2 different ways with the sponge pad encased in the compact and then the kabuki brush. The brush gave me a slightly lighter coverage.

If you're looking for a few essential makeup products to finish the summer with a fresh look and take with you into the fall, L'Oreal has just the items for a simple and beautiful look: Magic Skin Anti-Redness BB Cream, Miss Manga Mascara, and the Glossy Balm.

Loreal magic skin beautifier bb cream

 

During the summer months, and yes it still is summer (August is not over yet!), I don't typically don't wear foundation as it feels too heavy on my skin. Instead, I use either a tinted moisturizer or a BB/CC Cream - these are great for light coverage and a fresh-faced look. L'Oreal offers a few BB Creams, one of which is the Magic Skin Beautifier Anti-Redness BB Cream. So how does it work? This BB Cream includes "Beautifying Beads" that are encapsulated with color-transforming pigments that counteract redness. It starts out green and as you apply (or even rub in your hand), it transforms to a universal skin tone shade that reduces the look of redness, which is pretty neat to watch! On top of the anti-redness benefits, this BB also works to even skin tone and hydrate for a smooth, bare finish. Just for fair warning, although it is pretty cool to see this BB transform to a universal shade, I would be tentative to use it if you have fair skin. My skin is quite fair and the shade was a little too dark for my preference. Other than that, this BB cream is lightweight and perfect for warmer weather.

I have been noticing more and more BB creams in beauty stores as well as local Targets and CVS’s. There are many options making it the perfect time to try some out! I’ve spent some time using 03182013 Lumene Vitamin C Heleyttava BB Cream Certified FabulousLumene Illuminating Anti-Age BB Cream with SPF 20 from Finland. As a BB cream it accomplishes multiple things, “moisturizes, provides sun protection, covers imperfections and at the same time acts as a nude, natural make up.” I found that the BB Cream goes on smoothly, blends in well with my skin, and is quite moisturizing even on it’s own. However if you feel that your skin needs more hydration, you can use it in combination with your everyday moisturizer. The Lumene BB cream provides more coverage than I was expecting, but hydrates while allowing for a lighter color and weight than a traditional foundation. Also, the Lumene BB Cream has Vitamin C and arctic cloudberry to brighten the skin, and antioxidants protect the skin. With this you can get your skincare and makeup in one step, which is great for those of us who are always running late! The less I have to do in the morning the better!

So with Lumene Illuminating Anti-Age BB Cream SPF 20 at $34.99 on Amazon, high-low options include:

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 at $135.00

Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream at $12.99

Hey everyone,

This week I had the honor to try the DHC – BB Cream. When I say honor I truly mean it. As Sara already told you this great product is not on the market yet. It will be available February 1st but the Certified F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. team received it and I was able to try it.

Yesterday, Sara explained what a BB cream is. She liked the DHC BB Cream just as much as I do. bb cream finalI think it works amazingly. My skin tone is very light but unfortunately I have dark circles under my eyes. Having a baby at home, I have a lot of sleepless nights and unfortunately sometimes you can tell in the morning. The DHC BB Cream will be my secret weapon from now on. When I tried the DHC BB Cream I was surprised and realized I only needed this one product to cover my dark circles. It leaves an even skin tone. On top of that it hydrates and protects with broad-spectrum SPF 20. And for $45 it is a pretty good price range considering you don’t need to buy a primer, foundation… anymore.

 

But as always when you want to buy something you can choose between different price points.

BB creams are hit or miss.  There are a lot of brands out there who have launched BB creams in the last year.  It is really hard to figure out which one is right for you.. and really what is a BB cream?  What is the difference between a BB cream a tinted moisturizer and a foundation?

A BB Cream- which stands for Blemish Balm really has been quite popular in Korean and recently has tremendous popularity in the United States. A BB cream has a tall order, it is your Moisturizer, Primer and foundation in one, and usually there is at least one more added bonus either SPF, whitening and brightening aspects, or ingredients to treat blemishes.  

I am very particular about my BB cream because I do expect it to be different from a tinted moisturizer or a skin fcefoundation.  It really needs to smooth out the tone and texture of my skin, cover my blemishes,  spread on easily, on top of it all I should not feel it on my skin.  I am a huge fan of Korean BB creams.

The one thing that a BB cream does not do for me is be my only moisturizer.  I have to apply a moisturizer right after the shower, and then I can apply my BB cream. I think your skin needs to be more on the oily side for it to be a good moisturizer for you. I have more normal to combination skin.

DHC Skin Care, makes one I really like.  It definitely has awesome coverage,  One layer and I am good to go.  It meets all of the standards I have set for a BB cream. DHC BB cream I would consider is worth a try.
