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.

Happy New Year Everyone!

What’s your New Years resolution? Maybe work less, spend more time at the Gym or make sure you never miss any of our certified fabulous beauty reviews? Whatever it is I wish you all the best to never lose them out of sight! I hope you all had a great New Years Eve! Most of you probably partied until late into the night and morning. Now it is even more important to make sure we find some kind of miracle to let other people see we are fresh and sparkly and ready to start 2013.

My advice is the Jumbo Eye Pencil by NYX! It is a radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made NYXwith a blend of mineral oil and powder they are easy to apply. There is no pulling at all, very soft and almost like drawing on a piece of paper with a marker.

Depending on your skin type NYX has a great variety of colors to offer. Because I am still in the Holiday spirit I chose the “Cashmere” and “pure gold” colors. The “Cashmere” is a little lighter and might look very, very good on a very light skin tone. Mine is a little darker and I think the “pure gold” is the perfect eye Make-Up for my New Years Day!

If you have had enough of the Holiday season then just switch to one of the other amazing colors. No matter if “Purple Velvet”, a light “Lavender” or dark “Iced Mocha”. If you are very brave you might even try the color that’s called “French Fries” which is a shimmery light silver-gold tone. have fun experimenting!
