There are very few products I like from or New York Color. They just don’t work for me. That doesn’t mean that I won’t keep trying things though, because their products are so affordable.
I have been wanting to try some lighter coverage for summer, and after hearing a few good reviews here and there, I decided to try it. The consistency was more watery than I expected, but that also made it glide over my skin more easily. I actually found that I love the way it feels on my face. I just have to be careful when I squeeze it out of the bottle—the tube it comes in is just an added bonus for a clean application.
The BB in BB cream stands for beauty balm. It’s usually a lighter coverage face makeup. I like to apply the product with my fingers or a brush, and it goes on pretty easily,but it’s not very long-wearing. I’d say it lasts about five hours before it starts to fade. It has light to medium coverage, but it’s more on the medium side of things. It definitely hides all my redness and makes my skin appear more smooth, but it doesn’t feel heavy on my skin. I had to make sure that I set it with powder—not because it creased on me or anything, but because it was a little tacky if I didn’t.
Did I mention this is perfect for dry skin. Every other makeup I have, I have to work to make sure it doesn’t settle into my pores or on dry patches. This just makes my skin look flawless without looking like I have any makeup on. All I’m saying is that this BB cream is light on the skin, medium on the coverage, and heavy on the value!
